Abi-Albon

ABI-ALBON

ab-i-al'-bon, abi-al'-bon ('abhi `alebhon, meaning not known. Gesenius infers from the Arabic a stem which would give the meaning "father of strength," and this is at worst not quite so groundless as the conjectures which explain `alebhon as a textual misreading for 'el or ba`al):

Abi-albon the Arbathite was one of David's listed heroes (2 Samuel 23:31), called Abiel the Arbathite in 1 Chronicles 11:32. Presumably he was from Beth- arabah (Joshua 15:6,61; 18:22).
