Metaphysical meaning of En-mishpat (mbd)

Metaphysical meaning of En-mishpat (mbd)
En-mishpat, en-mlsh'-pat (Heb.)--fountain of judgment; fount of rectitude; fountain of right; fount of justice.

The same place as Kadesh, or a fountain in the city of Kadesh. It was there that Chedorlaomer and the kings that were with him smote the Amalekites (Gen. 14:7).

Meta. The significance of En-mishpat (fountain of judgment) is that, under the great law of adjustment, when sense indulgence reaches a certain point in its expression it destroys the very error desires that keep it active in consciousness. These desires die for lack of fuel to keep them alive--evil is its own destruction (see CHEDORLAOMER and KADESH)-and uprightness, true justice, becomes manifest (fount of rectitude, fountain of right, fount of justice).
