Metaphysical meaning of Euphrates (mbd)
Euphrates, eu-phra'-te,s (Gk. fr. Heb.)--bursting forth; breaking out; fructifying; that which is the fructifying cause.

One of the four rivers of Eden (Gen. 2:14). It is a large river in western Asia (II Sam. 8: 3, with margin; II Kings 23:29; Rev. 16:12).

Meta. The fourth river, Euphrates, means "fructifying," or "that which is the fructifying cause." Metaphysically, it represents the blood stream. The circulatory system receives and distributes the nutrients contained in the food we eat. The blood stream is charged with the food substance for bone, muscle, brain, teeth, and hair. Every part of the organism is supplied with substance through this wonderful river Euphrates.
