Adriel

Adriel

Adriel, in the Bible, husband of Merab.

Adriel - flock of God, the son of Barzillai, the Meholathite, to whom Saul gave in marriage his daughter Merab (1 Sam. 18:19). The five sons that sprang from this union were put to death by the Gibeonites (2 Sam. 21:8, 9. Here it is said that Michal "brought up" [R.V., "bare"] these five sons, either that she treated them as if she had been their own mother, or that for "Michal" we should read "Merab," as in 1 Sam. 18:19). The name Adriel is also one of the Hebrew names for the Angel of Death, among Azrael, Bebriel, and Hemeh.
