(2) The man to whom Saul gave Michal, David's wife, after the estrangement (1 Sam 25:44). He is "the captain of the people" of 2 Esdras 5:16 ("Phaltiel," margin "Psaltiel").

Palti in Wikipedia Palti (or Paltiel), son of Laish, who was from Gallim, was the second husband of Michal, Saul's daughter.[1]. Michal was originally David's wife, but Saul gave her to Palti after she helped David escape from Saul. Later when David became king of Judah and Ish-bosheth Saul's son (and Michal's brother) was king of Israel, David demanded her return to him, in return for peace between them. This Ish-bosheth did.[2] The account says that Palti "followed her weeping as far as Bahurim. But Abner said to him 'Go Back!'. And he turned back."[3]. According to the Talmud, Palti never consummated his marriage with Michal, but kept a sword between them while in bed to separate them. The Talmud explains his weeping as sorrow over the loss of a good deed, and not as weeping for the loss of Michal herself: Is it not written (II Samuel 3.16), He went weeping? —This was for losing the good deed [of self-restraint]. Hence [he followed her] to [the town called] Bahurim (literally, youths), implying that they both had remained like unmarried youths and not tasted the pleasure of marital relations.[4]

Palti Scripture - Numbers 13:9 Of the tribe of Benjamin, Palti the son of Raphu.
