(flame ), possibly the title of the kings of Amalek, like Pharaoh of Egypt. One king of this name is mentioned in ( Numbers 24:7 ) and another in 1 Samuel 15:8,9,20,32 The latter was the king of the Amalekites, whom Saul spared contrary to Jehovah's well-known will. ( Exodus 17:14 ; 25:17) For this act of disobedience Samuel was commissioned to declare to Saul his rejection, and he himself sent for Agag and cut him in pieces. (B.C. about 1070.) [SAMUEL ]. Haman is called the AGAGITE in (Esther 3:1,10 ; 8:3,5 ) The Jews consider him a descendant of Agag the Amalekite.
