The weary man (Prov 30:1-30:1)

“Thus says the man.

I am weary.

O God!

I am weary.

O God!

How can I prevail?”

This is the opening statement of Agur. Some have interpreted this as the names of people, Ithiel and Ucal. Nevertheless, this is a weary man who is crying out to God. Notice that it is not Yahweh. He wants to know how he can prevail in this life.
