Metaphysical meaning of Abishai (mbd)
Abishai, a-bl'-shai (Heb.)--father (source) of precious gifts; source of wealth; (my) father gives.

Son of David's sister, Zeruiah, and brother of Joab and Asahel. He was with David during David's conflict with Saul and his wars with the Philistines. He was a chief, a warrior, and a mighty man (II Sam. 2:18; 21:17; I Chron. 2: 16).

Meta. The inherited law of destruction to the enemies of the natural man. Before the light and all-sufficiency of the Father's presence (father or source of precious gifts, source of wealth, my father gives), all seeming errors sink into nothingness; they cannot withstand the almightiness, omnipresence, and omniscience of the one Good, active.
