Metaphysical meaning of Gazzam (mbd)
Gazzam, gaz'-zam (Heb.)--devouring; consuming.

His children were of the Nethinim who returned from the Babylonian captivity (Ezra 2:48).

Meta. A devouring, consuming, destroying thought or belief that belongs to the religious consciousness in man. It comes from the destructive idea of killing out all that is ungodlike; it is of the "servant" class, because the sonship or Christ idea is to lift up and redeem. (The Nethinim were servants in the Temple; they served the priests and did all the menial work.)
