Proverbs 30

Gray's Concise Bible CommentaryGray's Concise Commentary

Verses 1-33

The last division consists of two supplements, one of the words of Agur (chap. 30), and the other of Lemuel (chap. 31).

Agur’s words begin with an exaltation of the Word of God (Proverbs 30:1-6 ), followed by short and pithy maxims with reference to the rich and the poor, pride and greed, etc.

Lemuel’s words open with a philosophical statement, apply chiefly to kings, followed by his well-known poem in praise of the virtuous woman.
