(chihl' ih ab) Personal name meaning, “everything of the Father.” David's second son (2 Samuel 3:3 ) born to Abigail. The name appears as Daniel in 1 Chronicles 3:1 . Whatever his exact name, David's second son disappeared from history here and did not figure in the later disputes over who would succeed David as king. His name could be associated with the clan of Caleb.
