Second Samuel 6:23

This website has been moved to: https://debatemap.live

2 Samuel 6:23: Therefore Michal the daughter of Saul had no children to the day of her death.

2 Samuel 21:8: So the king took Armoni and Mephibosheth, the two sons of Rizpah the daughter of Aiah, whom she bore to Saul, and the five sons of Michal the daughter of Saul, whom she brought up for Adriel the son of Barzillai the Meholathite;

Second Samuel 6 says that Michal never had any children, but Second Samuel 21 says that Michal had five sons.

Only some of the Hebrew manuscripts read 'Michal'. The others read 'Merab'. This is also clued to in 1 Samuel 18:19, where it mentions that Merab was married to Adriel.
