Brown-Driver-Briggs Expanded Definition
 אֲבִיאֵל proper name, masculine ( El is (my) father, compare אביהו & Phoenician אבבעל ( feminine), also אביבעל; & אבנבעל our father etc.; Abi-ba'al KAT2355; see RS Sem 45. ZMG 1888,480 makes אבי here, & in אביהו etc., construct but this seems unlikely; compare also אליאב etc.; views differ much as to these proper names and uniform interpretation is impossible. Compare in General Ol§ 277 f).

1 Saul's grandfather 1 Samuel 9:1; 1 Samuel 14:51.

2 = foregoing, 1 Chronicles 11:32.

Gesenius' Hebrew and Chaldee Definition

אֲבִיאֵל (“father of strength,” i.e. strong), [Abiel], pr.n. m.

(1)  1 Chronicles 11:32, see אֲבִי־עַלְבוֹן.

(2) the grandfather of king Saul, 1 Samuel 9:1, 14:51. In the genealogy, as found 1 Chronicles 8:33, 9:39, Net is said to have been Saul’s grandfather, but according to 1Sa 14:1-52:5l, he is rather to be taken as his paternal uncle. The real genealogy stands thus:- Ecc 10:1-20 Act 9:1-43 Eph 6:1-24 Eph 2:1-22 Act 2:1-47 Act 7:1-60
