(Hebrews Kilab´ כַּלְאָב , protected by the fa ther, i.e. God; Sept. Κελεάβ v. r. Δαλουϊ v α ), the second son of king David by Abigail, Nabal's widow (2 Samuel 3:3), called in the parallel passage (1 Chronicles 3:1) by the equivalent name DANIEL (See DANIEL) (q.v.). The reason of this twofold name is uncertain; but for the rabbinical notions concerning it, and some speculations of his own, see Bochart, Hieroz. 1:603.
