Metaphysical meaning of Aran (mbd)

Metaphysical meaning of Aran (mbd)
Aran, a'-ran (Heb.)--active; nimble; a wild goat; firmness.

Son of Dishon, a Horite descended from Seir (Gen. 36:28).

Meta. Aggressiveness, and a firmness or obstinacy of thought that is untrained and undisciplined and is guided, not by understanding, but by outer desires (a wild goat, firmness, a Horite). This makes a place of refuge for many of the sense ideas of man that should be overcome.
