Metaphysical meaning of Bath-sheba (mbd)

Metaphysical meaning of Bath-sheba (mbd)
Bath-sheba, bath-she'-bå (Heb.)--daughter of the oath; seventh daughter; daughter of seven; measure of fullness. The word Sheba is the ancient form of a Hebrew oath, "swear by the seven," whereby one declared that the thing promised would be fulfilled.

Wife of Uriah the Hittite. After his death she became David's wife (II Sam. 11:3-27). She was the mother of Solomon (II Sam. 12:24).

Meta. Fulfillment (seventh daughter, daughter of the oath). As David united to Bath-sheba brought forth Solomon, so love in its fulfillment, or completion, establishes peace. (Seven is the number that represents fulfillment and rest. God "rested on the seventh day from all his work which he had made," or fulfilled.)
