1. Agur is the one who wrote this proverb.

2. Son in hebrew is ben. This is the word that is used here

3. naar, abad, abed, sakiyr, sharath are words in hebrew that mean servant. These words have nothing to do with the word son. and they are not used in the scripture we are referencing.

4. Agur is asking the reader Who created the earth. etc. Your answer to these questions is agur, which is incorrect. Agur did not create the earth. He is a servant you are right but the question is who is the creator and his son. (ben) if you know it.

5. I can quote you all the scripture in the world trying to prove to you who Jesus is and you will not be convinced if God does not open your eyes. It seems that you are saying and asking such questions for the sake of controversy. I suggest that if you want to know who Jesus is ask him yourself if you dare.
