Metaphysical meaning of Harhur (mbd)
Harhur, här'-hûr (Heb.)--burning fever, parched; inflamed; intense ardor; free-born; noble; distinguished.

His descendants were of the Nethinim who returned from the Babylonian captivity (Ezra 2:51).

Meta. The changeableness of the emotional state of one who thinks of himself as being a servant of God only, and does not know that he is a son of God by divine right, by reason of birth (see Galatians 4:6, 7, 21-31).

So long as we see ourselves as bond servants to God instead of sons of His, we shall be subject to all kinds of sensations in mind; destructive emotions of undue excitement and heat (burning fever) will express in and through us, as well as high and noble thoughts and feelings. But as we come to recognize our sonship more and more fully, we shall take our dominion and overcome all thoughts and emotions that are not constructive. We shall be zealous, but never unpoised; we shall be kind, loving, and compassionate, but not weakly sorrowful and sympathetic in a personal way.
