Five sons of Michal - whom she brought up - Michal, Saul' s daughter, was never married to Adriel, but to David, and afterwards to Phaltiel; though it is here said she bore yaledah , not brought up, as we falsely translate it: but we learn from I Samuel 18:19, that Merab, one of Saul' s daughters, was married to Adriel.
Two of Dr. Kennicott' s MSS. have Merab, not Michal; the Syriac and Arabic have Nadab; the Chaldee has properly Merab; but it renders the passage thus: - And the five sons of Merab which Michal the daughter of Saul brought up, which she brought forth to Adriel the son of Barzillai. This cuts the knot.
