Metaphysical meaning of Hori (mbd)

Metaphysical meaning of Hori (mbd)
Hori, ho'-ri (Heb.)--cave dweller; imprisoned; black; free; noble; white.

a Son of Lotan of the Horites, and brother of Heman (Gen. 36:22). b An Israelite, of the tribe of Simeon, whose son Shaphat was one of the men whom Moses sent to spy out the land of Canaan (Num. 13:5).

Meta. Thoughts belonging to the depths of the subconsciousness (cave dweller). The one is wholly given over to the error beliefs signified by the Horites. The other, who is of the tribe of Simeon (one who listens and obeys), has become, through the dawning light of Spirit, higher and nobler, which tends to the ultimate freeing from the dominion of sense even of that in the individual which appears to be mortal and physical. The Horite and the Israelite named Hori represent the two extremes of this remarkable Hebrew word: one, imprisoned, black; the other, free, noble, white.
