Treasury of Scripture

And Kish was the father of Saul; and Ner the father of Abner was the son of Abiel.

Kish

1 Samuel 9:1,21
Now there was a man of Benjamin, whose name was Kish, the son of Abiel, the son of Zeror, the son of Bechorath, the son of Aphiah, a Benjamite, a mighty man of power…









(51) The son of Abiel.--For "son" the commentators mostly agree we must read sons. Kish and Ner, we know, were both sons of Abiel. (See 1Chronicles 9:35-36, where, however, the father's name is given as Jehiel.)

Verse 51. - The son of Abiel. There can be little doubt that the right reading is sons, and not son. We thus get an intelligible statement - "And Kish the father of Saul and Ner the father of Abner, were sons of Abiel."
