Abel the Great

Resource Toolbox

1 Samuel 6:18. Keil supposes the reading ought to be "Eben" (the stone), for "Abel." The Septuagint and the Chaldee versions so read; but "Abel" is probably right, and refers to the mourning caused by the destruction of so many Bethshemites for looking into the ark. The field in which Abel the great Stone was, on which the ark was placed on its return from the Philistines, belonged to Joshua, a Bethshemite.
