Jakeh

Additional Links

Related to Hebrew yikkah , "obedience." Father of Agur. (See AGUR.) Hitzig translated Proverbs 30:1, with a conjectural reading, "son of her whose obedience is Masse," i.e. the queen of Masse! (Genesis 25:14; 1 Chronicles 1:30; 1 Chronicles 4:41-43). Thus Agur and Lemuel are brothers (Proverbs 31:1), sons of the queen of Masse in Arabia, the region which he conjectures the Simeonites conquered in Hezekiah's time. Bunsen makes Jakeh a proper name, "son of Jakeh the man of Massa."
