Bible Names H-M: Lemuel


Lemuel in Easton's Bible Dictionary dedicated to God, a king whom his mother instructed (Prov. 31:1-9). Nothing is certainly known concerning him. The rabbis identified him with Solomon.
http://www.bible-history.com/eastons/L/Lemuel/


Lemuel in Fausset's Bible Dictionary "devoted to God", or "created by God" (the long form of Loci, Numbers 3:24). Instead of "Lemuel .... the prophecy," some less probably translated "Lemuel, king of Massa" (Proverbs 31:1-9). An ideal model king. Not, as Hitzig guessed, elder brother to Agur, king of an Arab tribe in Massa, on the borders of Israel, and both sprung from the Simeonites who drove out the Amalekites from Mount Seir under Hezekiah, as if Lemuel were an older form of Nemuel, or Jemuel, Simeon's oldest son. Taught by his mother, as Timothy by Lois and Eunice (2 Timothy 1:5; 2 Timothy 3:15-16). Her character was perhaps the model of the portrait of the "virtuous woman" (Proverbs 31:10-31). Abstemious; a pleader for and patron of those who cannot defend themselves, the widow and orphan.

Lemuel in Naves Topical Bible -(A king) -Probably refers to Solomon Pr 31:1,4
http://www.bible-history.com/naves/L/LEMUEL/


Lemuel in Smiths Bible Dictionary (dedicated to God), the name of an unknown king to whom his mother addressed the prudential maxims contained in Pr 31:1-9 The rabbinical commentators identified Lemuel with Solomon. Others regard him as king or chief of an Arab tribe dwelling on the borders of Israel, and elder brother of Agur, whose name stands at the head of Pr 30:1

Lemuel in the Bible Encyclopedia - ISBE lem'-u-el (lemu'el, or lemo'-el): A king whose words, an "oracle (taught him by his mother)," are given in Prov 31:1-9; and possibly the succeeding acrostic poem (31:10-31) is from the same source. Instead of translating the word after this name as "oracle" some propose to leave it as a proper name, translating "king of Massa," and referring for his kingdom to Massa (Gen 25:14), one of the sons of Ishmael, supposedly head of a tribe or sheikh of a country. It is to be noted, however, that the words of Agur in the previous chapter are similarly called massa', "oracle" with not so clear a reason for referring it to a country. See for a suggested reason for retaining the meaning "oracle" in both places, PROVERBS, THE BOOK OF, II, 6. John Franklin Genung

Lemuel in Wikipedia Lemuel (Hebrew:לְמוּאֵל) is the name of a Biblical king mentioned in Proverbs 31:1 and 4, but otherwise unknown.[1] The opening verse reads: "The words of king Lemuel. The vision wherewith his mother instructed him." The name occurs again in verse 4: "Give not to kings, O Lemuel, give not wine to kings ..." The discourse, which is an exhortation to chastity and temperance, appears to end with verse 9, but might continue through the end of the chapter.(which is the end of proverbs) Some modern scholars (see Revised Version, Prov. 31:1, margin) render the first passage thus: "The words of Lemuel, king of Massa, which his mother taught him." Massa is mentioned in Genesis 25:14 (cf. 1 Chronicles 1:30), among the sons of Ishmael, and his kingdom is consequently supposed to have been in Arabia...
