Hastings' Dictionary of the Bible
MERAB. The elder daughter of Saul, promised to the slayer of Goliath ( 1 Samuel 17:25 ), and then to David personally as a reward for prowess against the Philistines ( 1 Samuel 18:17 ), but given as wife to Adriel the Meholathite. In 2 Samuel 21:8 Michal , whose sons are said to have been given over to satisfy the Gibeonites, is probably a scribal error for Merab.
