AGAG . 1 . Numbers 24:7 , probably a copyist’s error: LXX [Note: Septuagint.] has Gog . 2 . 1 Samuel 15:1-35 , the king of Amalek, whom Saul defeated and spared; some Gr. MSS name his father Aser ( 1 Samuel 15:33 ). Whether he met his fate bravely or timidly cannot be determined from the extant text ( 1 Samuel 15:32 ). Samuel considered him to be under the ban of extermination, and therefore killed him as a religious act ( 1 Samuel 15:33 ).

J. Taylor.
