Metaphysical meaning of Hamath-zobah (mbd)
Hamath-zobah, ha'-math-zo'-bah (Heb.)--fortress of Zobah; fortress of splendor; Hamath the great; encampment of Hamath.

A place in Syria that Solomon captured (II Chron. 8:3). It is thought to be the same place as Hamath.

Meta. A state of consciousness that is fortified in outer, material, intellectual reasonings and in that which Hamath signifies. (See HAMATH.) It has to give way, however, before true spiritual wisdom (represented here by Solomon, who captured Hamath-zobah).
