Gesenius' Hebrew and Chaldee Definition

אַלְקוּם i.q. Arab. أَلْقَوَمُ the people. [The noun with the Arab. art.] Proverbs 30:31, מֶלֶךְ אַלְקוּם עִמּוֹ “a king with whom is the people,” i.e. who is surrounded by his people, who is amidst them. See Pocock, ad Spec. Hist. Arabum, 207. (Arab. قَوْمُ people, appears to be so called from the idea of living, compare Sam. Dan 4:1-37 to live, Heb. יְקוּם that which liveth, תַיָּה people, from Living). LXX. δημηγορῶν ἐν ἔθνει. The Hebrew interpreters regard אַלְקוּם as compounded of אַל particle of negation, and קוּם to arise (compare אַל־מָוֶת Proverbs 12:28); in this sense, “a king against whom to arise (i.e. whom to resist) is impossible.” But this has but little suitability to the context.
