Agag


"Flame, the usual title of the Amalekite kings, as "Pharaoh" was" of the Egyptian. (1.) A king of the Amalekites referred to by Balaam (Num. 24:7). He lived at the time of the Exodus. "(2.) Another king of the Amalekites whom Saul spared unlawfully, "but whom Samuel on his arrival in the camp of Saul ordered, in" "retributive justice (Judg. 1), to be brought out and cut in" pieces (1 Sam. 15:8-33. Comp. Ex. 17:11; Num. 14:45).

"A name applied to Haman and also to his father (Esther 3:1, 10;" "8:3, 5). Probably it was equivalent to Amalekite."
