Metaphysical meaning of Anah (mbd)
Anah, a'-nah (Heb.)--answering.

a A chief or prince of the Horites, son of Seir (Gen. 36:20, 29). b The son of Zibeon the Hivite, and parent of Esau's wife, Oholibamah (Gen. 36:2, 14, 18, 25). Authorities agree that this latter Anah was a son of Zibeon, not a daughter.

Meta. Error tendencies, or strongly influencing thoughts, deep within the subjective life forces in individual consciousness, which cause these life forces to respond to the desires of the flesh or sense man (answering) instead of listening to Spirit. (The Hivites and the Horites were descendants of Canaan, son of Ham; they were hostile to the Israelites in the Promised Land, and they had to be destroyed.)
