ARBATHITE (ar'ba-thīt, Heb. ‘arvāthî). One of David’s thirty heroes, a native of the Arabah or of Beth Arabah, called Abi-Albon in 2Sam.23.31, Abiel in 1Chr.11.32.

ARBATHITE är’ bə thīt (עַרְבָתִ֔י). A native of Beth-arabah, the home of Abialbon (2 Sam 23:31), also named Abiel (1 Chron 11:32), who was one of David’s mighty men.

International Standard Bible Encyclopedia (1915)

Perhaps "a native of the Arabah." Klostermann suggests "a native of Beth-arabah." The Arbathite is Abi-albon (2Sa 23:31), also named Abiel (1Ch 11:32), one of David’s heroes.
