ā´gē ( אגא , 'āghē ), "fugitive"): A H ararite, father of Shammah, one of David's "Three mighty men" (2 Samuel 23:11 ). In 1 Chronicles 11:34 we read of one "Jonathan the son of Shagee the Hararite." The parallel in 2 Samuel 23:32 , 2 Samuel 23:33 reads "Jonathan, Shammah the Hararite." If we read "Jonathan (son of) Shammah," then Agee is the grandfather of Jonathan. Some, however, think 1 Chronicles 11:34 to be correct, and read "Shagee" for "Agee" in 2 Samuel 23:11 , and for "Shammah" in 2 Samuel 23:33 . This makes Jonathan and Shammah brothers.
