Meta. Gaash signifies the inner quaking or commotion, trembling in mind and body, that is likely to take place when one's creative forces and powers have been greatly increased by a new realization of divine life. The "brooks of Gaash" are the cleansing waters that clear from consciousness many errors if the individual keeps his trust firmly centered in Divine Mind and holds to its ideals.

Hiddai signifies the joy and praise that spring from within because of the realization of God's greatness and goodness, a realization that comes about by the cleansing and vitalizing experience that is signified by the "brooks of Gaash."
