Lem’uel (dedicated to God), the name of an unknown king to whom his mother addressed the prudential maxims contained in Prov. 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 Palestine, and elder brother of Agur, whose name stands at the head of Prov. 30.
