Metaphysical meaning of Bozrah (mbd)
Bozrah, boz'-rah (Heb.)--restraint; sheepfold; fortification; stronghold.

a A city of Edom (Gen. 36:33) . b A city of Moab (Jer. 48:24). Bozrah of Edom was a very important city, but it seems to have been conquered by the Moabites later, and its destruction is prophesied by Jeremiah and by Amos. Micah speaks of its sheep.

Meta. The pure natural life of the organism (sheep, sheepfold), controlled by the "mind of the flesh" or carnal mind (Edom and Moab). Though strongly intrenched in materiality (stronghold, fortification), the dominion of the sense man will be taken away. Then the life thoughts and forces, which are naturally pure and obedient in themselves, will be set free in righteous expression in the body temple.
