Proverbs 30:26-30
Prov 30:26 (KJB)
The conies are but a feeble folk, yet make they their houses in the rocks;
Conies - Syrian Rock Hyrax -
These conies are small animals and they are wise enough to know that they are no match for animals like mountain lions or lions. So they make their houses in the rocks, where even the mountain lions cannot get at them. What they lack in physical strength, they make up for by the wisdom God gave them. (Lev 11:5 KJV) And the coney, because he cheweth the cud, but divideth not the hoof; he is unclean unto you. The coney was considered an unclean animal under the law.
Prov 30:27 (KJB)
The locusts have no king, yet go they forth all of them by bands;
There is no such thing as a king locust as there is a queen bee. Yet, we see how the locust travel in swarms and find trees and plants to feed on until they strip the plants clean and then they move on. No one points in the direction where there is food but they go in the wisdom that God has planted in them and they will always know where to find food. They stay together until their feeding time is complete and than as one pack, they continue on.
Prov 30:28 (KJB)
The spider taketh hold with her hands, and is in kings' palaces.
Spider - Gecko -
The Gecko is very small lizard and a handsome one at that. They are able to dwell in places that you and I cannot dwell. They are able to live in the palace of the king without the king knowing it. They will have good protection because of the guards protecting the king, so no animal or human will be able to get at them. If a regular spider is in view, we can see what wonderful patterns they produce with their webs. Who taught them? No one, the Lord placed that wisdom in them when He created them.
Prov 30:29 (KJB)
There be three things which go well, yea, four are comely in going:
Well and Are comely - To be good and be pleasing
Here Agur ends up the chapter with four things that he finds to be good and pleasing. These four things are pleasant to look at as they go forward.
Prov 30:30 (KJB)
A lion which is strongest among beasts, and turneth not away for any;
Strongest - A warrior
Here he speaks of the lion as being the most fierce of animals and will not back down to any other animal. In fact, when a king conquered another country, what they would do is leave a small population behind to inhabit the conquered land. This was done to prevent lions from taking over the land. This could also be a picture of the Lord Jesus Christ who is the Lion of the tribe of Judah and who will not turn away for any. This is something which can be counted on because the Lord will never back down truth or judgment.
