Metaphysical meaning of Homam (mbd)
Homam, ho'-mam (Heb.)--destruction; blind; raging; riotous commotion; greatest consternation; rebellious rabble; noisy multitude.

A descendant of Seir (I Chron. 1:39). In Genesis 36:22 he is called Heman.

Meta. Seir the Horite signifies the thought that rules in the deep-seated sense tendencies and activities of the physical in man. (See HORITES.) When sense desires, beliefs, and activities are allowed to prevail without restraint (blind, raging), they are very destructive and bring about desolation and ruin. Homam typifies such mental activities.
