Metaphysical meaning of Ezrahite (mbd)

Metaphysical meaning of Ezrahite (mbd)
Ezrahite, ez'-ra-hlte (fr. Heb.)--a native, i.e., in his own country, not a foreigner.

a Ethan the Ezrahite was a wise man in Solomon's time (I Kings 4: 31). b Heman the Ezrahite (Psalms 88, title).

Meta. Intellectual understanding, which is natural to man in his seemingly mortal state (a native, i.e., in his own country). One may become very brilliant in so far as education and the intellect are concerned, yet fall far short of the true spiritual wisdom and understanding that Solomon signifies.
