1. Father of Kish and Ner, and grandfather of Saul ( 1Samuel 9:1 , 14:51 ). Another account makes him the great-grandfather of Saul Ner, by that account, being the father, instead of the brother, of Kish. The mistake is probably due to an error of the scribe (1Chronicles 8:33 , 9:39 ). 2. One of the "thirty men" of David ( 1Chronicles 11:32 ). In the list given in 2Samuel 23:31 , Abiel is called Abi-Albon, which Budde, "S. B. O. T." p. 80, reads Abi-Baal.
