Metaphysical meaning of Ammah (mbd)

Metaphysical meaning of Ammah (mbd)
Ammah, am'-mah (Heb.)--a (natural measure) cubit; a (natural) maternal nation; a metropolis; a people.

A hill "that lieth before Giah by the way of the wilderness of Gibeon" (II Sam. 2:24).

Meta. A place of agreement, in consciousness, between the executive power of love (Joab, David's commander) and the conclusions of the somewhat spiritually enlightened intellect (Abner, captain of Saul's host). This agreement is based upon the innate knowing that all intelligence, whether of the heart or of the head, has a common source, Divine Mind (maternal nation, a metropolis; a hill in Israel).

(Abner, captain of Saul's host, represents the intellect, spiritually quickened in some degree. Joab, David's commander, is the inner pivotal center that preserves the unity and integrity of soul and body, the individual will. Abishai stands for the inherited law of destruction to all the enemies of the natural man. Saul had been defeated and killed, and Abner was fleeing from Joab and Abishai. They met at the hill of Ammah. There Abner convinced Joab that he and Abishai and their men should not follow him further with intent to kill. The intellect must not be destroyed, even though it is functioning in unison with the ignorant, personal will--Saul. It must be raised to a higher plane of action and must learn to reason entirely from a spiritual instead of a material standpoint.)
