1. Formerly the wife of Nabal of Carmel, and afterwards of David. Upon receiving information of Nabal's ingratitude to David, 1 Samuel 25:14 , she loaded several asses with provisions, and attended by some of here domestics went out to meet him. Her manners and conversation gained for her his esteem, and as soon as the days of mourning for Nabal's death, which happened soon afterwards, were over, he made her his wife. The issue of the marriage was, as some critics suppose, two sons, Chileab and Daniel, 2 Samuel 3:3 ; 1 Chronicles 3:1 ; but it is most probable that these names were borne by one person.

2. A sister of David, and mother of Amasa, 1 Chronicles 2:16,17 .
