Adriel
Adriel (whose name means flock of God) was a nobleman in the ancient kingdom of Israel. Adriel was 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). Thus Adriel was the son-in-law of King Saul, and the brother-in-law of King David and Queen Michal, who raised Adriel's children as their own.
