1. Father of Kish and of Ner and grandfather of Saul and of Abner. That this is the most probable genealogy is confirmed by Ner being said to be Saul's uncle, 1 Samuel 9:1; 1 Samuel 14:50,51; though in 1 Chronicles 8:33; 1 Chronicles 9:39 , Saul is said to be the son of Kish, the son of Ner. This Ner may have been an earlier ancestor; and here Abiel is not named at all. It was not unusual to leave out many names in the genealogies.

2. One of David's mighty men, 1 Chronicles 11:32; he is called Abi-Albon in 2 Samuel 23:31 .
