Metaphysical meaning of Dinah (mbd)

Metaphysical meaning of Dinah (mbd)
Dinah, dl'-nah (Heb.)--judged; justified; acquitted; avenged.

Jacob's daughter, by Leah (Gen. 30: 21).

Meta. The soul side, or feminine quality, of the judgment faculty in man; it might be called intuition, the intuition of the natural man. The thought of vengeance that is suggested in the name always comes to the natural man in his idea of judgment; he is more likely to discern the error side of a proposition than the true side. This thought is carried out by the action of Simeon and Levi in taking vengeance, for Dinah, upon Shechem and his people. As man becomes more spiritual in his ideas of judgment, thoughts of vengeance, punishment, and evil are eliminated from his mind and he sees the love, mercy, and goodness of God instead.
