Abinadab in the Bible Encyclopedia - ISBE a-bin'-a-dab ('abhinadhabh, "father of willingness," or, "my father is willing." This is according to the ordinary usage of the second word in the name--"willing" rather than "munificent" or "noble"): (1) The man in whose house the men of Kiriath-jearim placed the ark, after its return from the land of the Philistines, his house being either in Gibeah of Benjamin or "in the hill" (1 Sam 7:1; 2 Sam 6:3,4). To account for the ambiguity note that gibh`ah means hill, and that the place-name Gibeah ordinarily has the definite article. It is natural to think that Abinadab was himself a man of Kiriath-jearim, though the account does not explicitly say so. The record is that the men of Kiriath-jearim were summoned to take charge of the ark at a time when no one else dared to have it (1 Sam 6:20,21); and the implication seems to be that they had no option to refuse. Possibly this was due to their being Gibeonites, and hereditary "bondmen" of "the house of my God" (Josh 9:17,23). However this may be, they "sanctified" Abinadab's son Eleazar to have charge of the ark. According to the Hebrew and some of the Greek copies, the ark was in Gibeah in the middle of the reign of King Saul (1 Sam 14:18). About a century later, according to the Bible numbers, David went with great pomp to Kiriath-jearim, otherwise known as Baalah or Baale-judah, to bring the ark from Kiriath-jearim, out of the house of Abinadab in the hill (or, in Gibeah), and place it in Jerusalem (1 Ch 13; 2 Sam 6). The new cart was driven by two descendants of Abinadab. There may or may not have been another Abinadab then living, the head of the house. (2) The second of the eight sons of Jesse, one of the three who were in Saul's army when Goliath gave his challenge (1 Sam 16:8; 17:13; 1 Ch 2:13). (3) One of the sons of King Saul (1 Ch 8:33; 9:39; 10:2; 1 Sam 31:2). He died in the battle of Gilboa, along with his father and brothers. (4) In 1 Ki 4:11 the King James Version has "the son of Abinadab," where the Revised Version (British and American) has BEN-ABINADAB, which see. Willis J. Beecher

Abinadab in Wikipedia A man of Kirjath-jearim widely identified as a Levite (but possibly a Judahite), in whose house the ark of the covenant was deposited after having been brought back from the land of the Philistines (1 Samuel 7:1 ). It remained there twenty years, until it was at length removed by David (1 Samuel 7:1,2 ; 1 Chronicles 13:7 ). It has been argued that the ark stayed at Abinadab's home for much longer than 20 years. After the ark was placed in Abinadab's home, the Bible counts 20 years before Israel cried to God and Samuel, asking for a king. Saul was then installed as king. He ruled for 40 years, and several more years passed before David took the ark from Abinadab's house to bring it to Jerusalem. The second of the eight sons of Jesse (1 Samuel 16:8 ). He was with Saul in the campaign against the Philistines in which Goliath was slain (1 Samuel 17:13 ). One of Saul's sons, who perished with his father in the battle of Gilboa (1 Samuel 31:2 ; 1 Chronicles 10:2 ). Ben-abinadab; One of Solomon's officers, who "provided victuals for the king and his household." He presided, for this purpose, over the region of Dor and had Taphath a daughter of Solomon to wife.(1 Kings 4:7-11 ).
