Abiel in Easton's Bible Dictionary
father (i.e., "possessor") of God = "pious." (1.) The son of
Zeror and father of Ner, who was the grandfather of
Saul (1 Sam.
14:51; 1 Chr. 8:33; 9:39). In 1 Sam. 9:1, he is called
"father," probably meaning the grandfather, of Kish.
Arbathite, one of David's warriors (1 Chr. 11:32);
Abi-albon (2 Sam. 23:31).
Abiel in Fausset's Bible Dictionary
("father of strength".)
1. Father of Kish and of Ner; grandfather of Saul and
of Abner, according to 1 Samuel 9:1; 1 Samuel 14:51. But Abiel
seems to have had "Ner" as his second name (1 Chronicles 8:33;
1 Chronicles 9:35; 1 Chronicles 9:39, where Abiel is also
called Jehiel and Saul is represented as his great grandson).
Probably in 1 Samuel a link in the genealogy is omitted, as
2. 1 Chronicles 11:32; named Abi-Albon (of the same
meaning) 2 Samuel 23:31.
