LEMUEL. The name of a king, otherwise unknown, to whom Proverbs 31:1-9 is addressed by his mother. His identity has been much discussed; he has been identified (by the Rabbinical commentators) with Solomon, (by Grotius) with Hezekiah. Cf. also Massa . It is possible that the name is a fanciful title to represent any virtuous king, invented for the purpose of conveying certain maxims.
