An Adullamite, a friend of Judah's (Gen. 38:1).
Meta. An Adullamite, a native of Adullam, typifies a thought belonging to the Adullam consciousness in man. One meaning of Adullam is justice of the people. This indicates a sense of justice and right, an equilibrium and poise (see ADULLAM) that, awakened in the individual, even if at first in the seemingly material consciousness only, gives a splendid, noble quality to the man and leads toward true liberty. This is Hirah.
