ab -i -al´bon , ā´bi -al´bon ( אבו עלבון 'ăbhı̄ ‛alebhōn , 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 ‛alebhōn as a textual misreading for 'ēl 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 , Joshua 15:61; Joshua 18:22 ).
