Metaphysical meaning of Hariph (mbd)

Metaphysical meaning of Hariph (mbd)
Hariph, ha'-rlph (Heb.)--autumn and winter; arrested life; plucking; early born; lightly esteemed; autumnal rains; ripened; fully developed.

a "The children of Hariph, a hundred and twelve," returned from the Babylonian captivity (Neh. 7:24). b A man by this name joined Nehemiah in sealing the covenant (Neh. 10:19).

Meta. Omnipresent life and strength, established in the assurance of having always existed in Being (earl born); also the fruition of this truth in consciousness (autumn), and the soul-refreshing showers that it brings, preparatory to a still further fruition (autumnal rains).

(No matter if autumn seems to bring a certain barrenness and a plucking away of some of the outer appearances of life, it is the time of harvest nevertheless, wherein abundance is in evidence everywhere. The rain that comes in the fall, too, especially after a comparatively dry summer, does much to insure the safety of vegetable life during the winter months, and helps to bring about good crops the following year.)
