THE HOLY BIBLE Douay-Rheims

Notes on Book of Proverbs (Author Bishop Richard Challoner (ed.))

30:1 Gatherer, etc: Or, as it is in the Latin, Congregans the son of Vomens. The Latin interpreter has given us in this place the signification of the Hebrew names, instead of the names themselves, which are in the Hebrew, Agur the son of Jakeh. But whether this Agur be the same person as Solomon, as many think, or a different person, whose doctrine was adopted by Solomon, and inserted among his parables or proverbs, is uncertain.
