Ishbosheth [Ĭshbō’sheth]—a man of shame. One of Saul’s younger sons who was made king over Israel by Abner. He was originally called Eshbaal, “The Lord’s man” but his name was changed after Saul’s departure (2 Sam. 2:8 with 1 Chron. 8:33; 9:39). Ishbosheth contested the throne of Israel with David for seven years. Ultimately he was deserted by Abner and murdered in his bed by two of his captains.
