Bible Names A-G: Abiel


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 the "father," probably meaning the grandfather, of Kish. (2.) An Arbathite, one of David's warriors (1 Chr. 11:32); called also 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 often elsewhere. 2. 1 Chronicles 11:32; named Abi-Albon (of the same meaning) 2 Samuel 23:31.
