MERIBBAAL

(meh rib buh' uhl) Personal name of disputed meaning: “opponent of Baal,” “obstinacy of Baal,” “beloved or hero of Baal,” or “Baal defends.” Original name of Mephibosheth. See Mephibosheth. Apparently later copyists of text changed name with Baal to avoid use of pagan god's name (1 Chronicles 8:34; 1 Chronicles 9:40, the latter with the Hebrew spelling “hero” compared to the former's spelling “opponent.”
