Proverbs 30:27 The locust have no "KING", yet go they forth all of them by bands.
Actually my question is being the sons of God are the locusts, why does the scripture say they have no KING?
Does this just mean they have no carnal king?
The Hebrew word translated “no,” is Ayin, Strong’s # 369.
369. /y]a^ °ayin: A particle or semiverb of negation or nonexistence meaning no, none, nothing. It is used hundreds of times with various negative nuances. It can simply negate something (Ex 17:7; Ps 135:17) or assert that something is as nothing in comparison (Isa 40:17). Used with the preposition l®, it indicates nonpossession (Gen 11:30; Prov 13:7; Isa 27:4; Hos 10:3). It refers to the lack of a successor (Dan 9:26). I

“Ayin” is translated, “nothingness,” because there is nothing that can be compared to it.
The Kabbalists liken “Ayin” to the Keter, because there is nothing that can compare to it in our world.
The following sentence is copied from the notes that I took when reading and studying “Etz Chayyim,” the Tree of Life:
“Keter has no analogy in the realm of our experience, so it is sometimes referred to as “nothingness” (‘ayin), and thought as remaining hidden within the Supreme Emanator (Keter).”
“Keter,” or, “nothingness,” is associated with the word “crown” (king), and with the Name of God, “I AM” (Eyeh), the self-existent one.
In view of the above, we can translate Proverbs 30:27, as follows:
King; I AM (have no=nothingness=I AM); grasshoppers (locusts); to go forth into exile; “by” not in the Hebrew; to divide, cut off, come to an end, sing (bands); all
I AM, [is] king of all the grasshoppers that went forth into exile [and] were cut off [from Jehovah, because] they sang [songs, or, called out to other gods].
