New Defender's Study Bible Notes
30:25 The ants. Agur, in Psalm 30:24-31, draws spiritual lessons for man from the instincts created by God for animals, specifically referring to ants, conies, locusts, spiders, lions, greyhounds, and goats—seven animals representing all the animals. Note also Job 12:7-9.
30:26 The conies. The animal called “coney” in the Bible was probably a rock badger, or hyrax.
30:28 The spider. The Hebrew word is used only in this verse and is not the usual word for spider. Some authorities think it refers to a lizard. The statement in the verse is true in either case.
