Metaphysical meaning of Hushim (mbd)

Metaphysical meaning of Hushim (mbd)
Hushim, hu'-shim (Heb.)--the hastening; hasters; hustlers; people of haste; vehement people; passionate people.

a Son of Dan (Gen. 46:23). b A Benjamite (I Chron. 7:12). c The wife of Shaharaim, a Benjamite (I Chron. 8:8).

Meta. An acceleration of thought activity (hasters, people of haste) in the judgment faculty in man (Dan) and in the active faith faculty (Benjamin). In the former, this accelerating of thought activity takes place in the reasoning or masculine phase of the justice consciousness only (Hushim of Dan was a man), while the latter is of the soul, feminine, as well as of the masculine (one of the Hushims of Benjamin was a woman). In all three the tendency is toward the carnal or physical. A good antidote for a hurried thought is to be found in Isaiah 28:16: "He that believeth shall not be in haste."
