Metaphysical meaning of Halhul (mbd)

Metaphysical meaning of Halhul (mbd)
Halhul, hal'-hul (Heb.)--full of hollows, i.e., rolling depressions; pain; pang; travail; trembling; terror; fear; trepidation; grief.

A city in the hill country of Judah (Josh. 15:58).

Meta. A group of thoughts belonging to the Judah or praise consciousness, and elevated to a higher plane than it really belongs to, since it is not so sincere and sound as it seems (full of hollows). Because of its insincerity, because it has not been wholly built up in Truth, this group of thoughts is sure to cause inner fears, tremblings, and sorrows (grief) that the individual may not be able to account for consciously. He should therefore be diligent in filling up all the weak places in mind and body with strong, true thoughts of praise and joy, of honor and strength, and with much real prayer and communion with God in the silence.
