ABIEL . 1 . Father of Kish and Ner, and grandfather of Saul ( 1 Samuel 9:1; 1 Samuel 14:51 ). The latter passage should run, ‘Kish, the father of Saul, and Ner the father of Abner, were sons of Abiel.’ 2 . One of David’s heroes ( 1 Chronicles 11:32 ), from Beth-arabah in the wilderness of Judah ( Joshua 15:6; Joshua 15:61; Joshua 18:22 ). Abi-albon ( 2 Samuel 23:31 ) is a transcriber’s error, the eye having fallen on albon below: some codices of the LXX [Note: Septuagint.] have Abiel : possibly the original was Abibaal .
