(ab' nuhr) Personal name meaning, “father is a lamp.” The chief military officer for King Saul and Saul's uncle (1 Samuel 14:50 ). At Saul's death, he supported Ish-bosheth, Saul's son (2 Samuel 2:8 ) until Ish-bosheth accused him of treason for taking one of Saul's concubines (2 Samuel 3:7-8 ). Abner transferred loyalty to David. Joab, David's general, went into a jealous rage when David welcomed Abner. Joab then killed Abner, who was buried in Hebron (2 Samuel 3:1 ). See 1 Samuel 17:55-58 ; 1 Samuel 20:25 ; 1Samuel 26:5,1 Samuel 26:14-15 .
