Rizpah (rĭz'pah), a coal, a hot stone for baking. A concubine of Saul whom Abner was accused for appropriating, as if thereby aiming at the crown. 2 Samuel 3:7. This caused a breach between him and Ishbosheth. Her two sons were delivered to the Gibeonites to be hanged: and the story of her affection as she watched her dead is peculiarly touching. 2 Samuel 21:8-11.
