Jakeh in Naves Topical Bible -Father of Agur Pr 30:1

Jakeh in Smiths Bible Dictionary (pious). [PROVERBS, BOOK OF]

Jakeh in the Bible Encyclopedia - ISBE ja'-ke (yaqeh, perhaps from Arabic root meaning "carefully religious"; yaqe', as if from qi'): The father of Agur, the author of the sayings recorded in Prov 30:1. Nothing is known of either Jakeh or Agur. The immediate connection in the Hebrew text of ha-massa', "the prophecy" or "burden" (the King James Version "even the prophecy," the Revised Version (British and American) "the oracle") with ne'um, "oracle" (the King James Version "spake," the Revised Version (British and American) "saith") is quite exceptional, while the verse is unintelligible and the text, as the Septuagint shows, is evidently corrupt. The best emendation is that which changes ha-massa', "the prophecy," into ha-massa'i, "the Massaite," or into mimmassa', "of Massa" (Revised Version margin), Massa being the name of the country of an Ishmaelite tribe (compare Gen 25:14; 1 Ch 1:30; Prov 31:1 the Revised Version margin). See AGUR. James Crichton
