Asahel was a son of Zeruiah (who was King David's sister), and the brother of Joab and Abishai. Asahel was renown for being fleet of foot,[1] but his ability to run swiftly was his downfall. When Asahel pursued Abner in battle, Abner killed him with his spear.[2] The name Asahel means "God has made."
