  Adriel 
  flock  of  God,  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).
