1 Samuel 14:50

Context
14:50 The name of Saul’s wife was Ahinoam, the daughter of Ahimaaz. The name of the general in command of his army was Abner son of Ner, Saul’s uncle. 1 

1 Samuel 17:55

Context

17:55 2 Now as Saul watched David going out to fight the Philistine, he asked Abner, the general in command of the army, “Whose son is this young man, Abner?” Abner replied, “As surely as you live, O king, I don’t know.”

1 Samuel 20:25

Context
20:25 The king sat down in his usual place by the wall, with Jonathan opposite him 3  and Abner at his side. 4  But David’s place was vacant.

1 sn The word “uncle” can modify either Abner or Ner. See the note on the word “son” in v. 51 for further discussion.

2 tc Most LXX mss lack 17:5518:5.

3 tc Heb “and Jonathan arose.” Instead of MT’s וַיָּקָם (vayyaqam, “and he arose”; from the hollow verbal root קוּם, qum), the translation assumes a reading וַיִּקַדֵּם (vayyiqaddem, “and he was in front of”; from the verbal root קדם, qdm). See P. K. McCarter, I Samuel (AB), 338.

4 tn Heb “and Abner sat at the side of Saul.”
