a -bim´a -el , ab -i -mā´el ( אבימאל , 'ăbhı̄mā'ēl , "my father is God," or "God is father"): The ninth of the thirteen sons of Joktan, who was descendant of Shem, and son of Eber, and brother of Peleg in whose days the earth was divided (Genesis 10:25-29 ; 1 Chronicles 1:19-23 ). Like some of the other names in this list, the name is linguistically south Arabian, and the tribes indicated are south Arabians.

Müller, Epigraphie Denkmaler aus Arabien ; Glaser, Skizze der Gesch. und Geog. Arabiens ; and by index Hommel, Ancient Hebrew Tradition ; and Gray, Hebrew Proper Names ; and F.
