Metaphysical meaning of Ezer (mbd)
Ezer (A.V., I Chron. 1:38, Ezar), e'-zer (Heb.)--surround; envelop; help; unite; succor; aid; treasure.

a A chief of the Horites of the children of Seir (Gen. 36:21). b The name of several Israelites (I Chron. 4:4; 7:21; Neh. 3:19; 12:42).

Meta. Man's innate belief in a substance, a wisdom (treasure), an established oneness with All-Good (unite), and a power to aid and to protect (surround, envelop, help) that come from something higher, stronger, and more real and lasting than sense consciousness can give. This innate belief springs up throughout the whole man, the seemingly sense part of himself as well as the thoughts and tendencies that belong to his higher nature (the latter is symbolized by the Israelitish men, while the sense part is suggested by the Ezer who was a Horite of Seir).
