Metaphysical meaning of Eliashib (mbd)
Eliashib, e-h'-a-shib (Heb.)--God restores; whom God restores; God of restitution ; requited of God; restored of God.
a A high priest at the time that the walls of Jerusalem and the Temple were rebuilt under Nehemiah (Neh. 3:1). b A priest in David's time (I Chron. 24:12). c Others of the same name (I Chron. 3:24; Ezra 10:6).
Meta. The men named Eliashib signify thoughts in the religious and spiritual nature of man that assure him of his ultimate return to the original sinless, whole, perfect state (God restores, God of restitution) in which he was created--idealized in the mind of the Father-Mother God. These men also signify the assurance that the law of compensation, the law of sowing and reaping, cause and effect, is divine (requited of God). Man should not look to man, but he should look to God, for all things, since in reality all comes from God--all things come about by exact law.
