a lamp; new-tilled land

Smith's Bible Dictionary
Ner

(a light or lamp), son of Jehiel, according to (1 Chronicles 8:33) father of Abner, and grandfather of King Saul. (B.C. 1140.) Abner was, therefore, uncle to Saul, as is expressly stated in (1 Samuel 14:50)

Easton's Bible Dictionary
Light, the father of Kish (1 Chronicles 8:33). 1 Samuel 14:51 should be read, "Kish, the father of Saul, and Ner, the father of Abner, were the sons of Abiel." And hence this Kish and Ner were brothers, and Saul and Abner were first cousins (Comp. 1 Chronicles 9:36).
