Abiel

1. Father of Kish and Ner, and grandfather of Saul (1 Samuel 9:1, 14:51). Another account makes him the great-grandfather of Saul; Ner, by that account, being the father, instead of the brother, of Kish. The mistake is probably due to an error of the scribe (1 Chronicles 8:33, 9:39). 2. One of the "thirty men" of David (1 Chronicles 11:32). In the list given in 2 Samuel 23:31, Abiel is called Abi-Albon, which Budde, "S. B. O. T." p. 80, reads Abi-Baal.
