(Hebrews Eglah', עֶגְלָה , a heifer, as often; Sept. Αἰγάλ and Ἀγλά ), one of David's wives during his reign in Hebron, and the mother of his son Ithream (2 Samuel 3:5; 1 Chronicles 3:3). B.C. 1045. In both lists the same order is preserved, Eglah being the sixth and last, and in both is she distinguished by the special title of David's "wife." According to the ancient Hebrew tradition preserved by Jerome (Quest, Hebr. on 2 Samuel 3:5; 2 Samuel 6:23), she was MICHAL (See MICHAL) (q.v.), the wife of his youth, and she died in giving birth to Ithream. A name of this signification is common among the Arabs at the present day. (See EGLATH).
