“Should Abner have died as a godless fool dies? Bible see other translations

“godless fool” The Hebrew noun translated “godless fool” is nabal (#05036 נָבָל). “The substantival adjective נָבָל, nabal, denotes the most extreme kind of ‘fool.’ Such fools reject the very existence of God and mock him as if he were powerless.”a
