Metaphysical meaning of Adin (mbd)
Adin, a'-din (Heb.)--voluptuous one; ornament; effeminate; dainty.

a The head man of one or more Israelitish families that returned to Jerusalem from the Babylonian captivity (Ezra 2:15; Neh. 7:20). b An Israelite who joined Nehemiah in sealing the covenant (Neh. 10:16).

Meta. A somewhat negative (effeminate) thought in consciousness. While this thought is of a refined, spiritual origin, it is taken captive into Babylon It enters a state of confusion because of its having given its substance to the belief in pleasure through the senses (voluptuous one). But out of its foundation in Truth come ideas (the descendants of Adin) that become free from the confusion of the sense mind (Babylon) and reenter Jerusalem (the consciousness of peace and of Spirit) and do a part in reestablishing the consciousness in spiritual understanding (ornament; one of the men named Adin joined Nehemiah in sealing the covenant).
