A´driel (the flock of God), the person to whom Saul gave in marriage his daughter Merab, who had been originally promised to David (1 Samuel 18:19). Five sons sprung from this union, who were taken to make up the number of Saul's descendants, whose lives, on the principle of blood-revenge, were required by the Gibeonites to avenge the cruelties which Saul had exercised towards their race [GIBEON].
