comment The fifth rib in Abner
Addendum to my last entry above: In as much as I do not remember reading of Joab being left handed (please correct me if I'm wrong), it is not unlikely that he used his right hand to stab Abner (thus my mention above of EKG lead V5 and the left 5th intercostal space). However, at the 5th intercostal space (in their day), any stab wound (right or left) would certainly have proved quickly fatal as it would have no doubt punctured a lung.
