AGUR . Son of Jakeh; author of the whole or part of Proverbs 30:1-33 , one of the latest sections of the book. His name may signify ‘hireling’ or ‘assembler’; cf. Vulg. [Note: Vulgate.] ‘Verba Congregantis filii Vomentis .’ Some have thought that massa (AV [Note: Authorized Version.] ‘the prophecy,’ RV [Note: Revised Version.] ‘the oracle’), which otherwise is out of place, is the name of his country ( Genesis 25:14 ).
