(lehm' yoo ehl) Personal name meaning “devoted to God.” A king who received words of wisdom from his mother concerning wine, women, and the legal rights of the weak and poor (Proverbs 31:1-9 ). Exactly where his kingdom of Massa was is not known, although certain linguistic features in the text have led scholars to place it in north Arabia, possibly near Edom. This section of Proverbs apparently comes from a non-Israelite woman. See Proverbs.
