Meholah

MEHOLAH, MEHOLATHITE (mē-hō'la-thīt, Heb. mehôlāthî). The Gentile designation of Adriel to whom Saul gave his daughter Merab as a wife (1Sam.18.19; 2Sam.21.8). The place Abel Meholah was probably located in the Jordan Valley near Beth Shan, the native place of Elisha (1Kgs.19.16). See also Abel Meholah.


MEHOLATHITE mĭ hō’ lə thīt (מְּחֹלָתִ֖י). A descriptive adjective given to Adriel, the son of Barzillai, who married Saul’s daughter, Merab (1 Sam 18:19; 2 Sam 21:8). He was prob. an inhabitant of Abel-meholah. The name Michal in 2 Samuel 21:8 (KJV, ASV) is undoubtedly a scribal error.

International Standard Bible Encyclopedia (1915)

The Gentiledesignation of Adriel, the son of Barzillai, who married Merab, the daughter of King Saul (1Sa 18:19; 2Sa 21:8), the name Michal in 2Sa 21:8 being doubtless a copyist’s error.
