MERAB ():

The elder of Saul's two daughters (I Sam. xiv. 49; xviii. 17, 19). Saul formally offered Merab's hand to David with the condition that the latter should distinguish himself in the warwith the Philistines. David did so, but Saul broke his promise by giving Merab to Adriel the Meholathite (ib. xviii. 19).
