Metaphysical meaning of Anan (mbd)
Anan, a'-nan (Heb.)--a covering; acloud; beclouded.
Meta. A high spiritual thought of consecration to God. This thought aids the true consciousness (Israel) to make an agreement with God to serve Him and be loyal to Him. Yet the thought that Anan signifies is obscured, or clouded (cloud, beclouded) to some extent by a belief in sin and evil as a power that holds man in servitude and bondage. (The Israelites still were servants to Gentile kings and princes, even though they were dwelling again in their own land; they were bowed down and grieved because of their former sins that had brought all their troubles upon them. See Neh. 9:32-38.)
