Metaphysical meaning of Hazar-addar (mbd)
Hazar-addar, ha'-zär-ad'-där (Heb.)--village of Addar; court of the threshing floor; inclosure of ample area; imprisoned greatness; inclosed verdant space.

A city on the southern border of the Promised Land (Num. 34:4).

Meta. It is no doubt the same city as the Addar of Joshua 15:3, and its significance is much the same. (See ADDAR.) Hazar-addar emphasizes the thought that the broadness and greatness that Addar signifies dwells in, is inclosed or imprisoned in, the unenlightened human consciousness and organism. Addar magnifies the uplifting, freeing power of Truth in the joy and good that are gained through its activity in man. Hazar, in this name, may refer to the Hezron that is named with Addar in Joshua 15:3. (See HEZRON.)
