Metaphysical meaning of Giah (mbd)

Metaphysical meaning of Giah (mbd)
Giah, gl'-ah (Heb.)--breaking forth; bursting forth; a birth; a spring; a fountain; a waterfall.

A place in Palestine. "But Joab and Abishai pursued after Abner: and the sun went down when they were come to the hill of Ammah, that lieth before Giah by the way of the wilderness of Gibeon" (II Sam. 2:24).

Meta. Ammah (a cubit--natural measure; a maternal nation natural; a hill in Israel) is symbolical of the idea that all intelligence, whether of the head or the heart, has a common source: Divine Mind. Here an agreement is reached between the executive power of love (Joab, David's commander) and the conclusions of the enlightened intellect (Abner, captain of Saul's host). (See AMMAH.) Gibeon represents the high point in the silence, which man reaches when he realizes his unity with Supreme Being. (See GIBEON.)

Giah refers to the birth or breaking forth of new life and cleansing in man's consciousness when a certain degree of illumination and realization is reached, through prayer and by declarations of Truth. Thus a greater purifying of the whole man takes place, and the individual becomes conscious of new health, vigor, vitality, and spiritual attainment.
