Metaphysical meaning of Ikkesh (mbd)

Metaphysical meaning of Ikkesh (mbd)
Ikkesh, ik'-kesh (Heb.)--perverse; subtle; plotting; ensnaring; wicked.

A Tekoite. His son Ira was one of David's mighty men (II Sam. 23:26); Ira was captain of the twenty-four thousand who served David in the sixth month of each year (I Chron. 27:9).

Meta. Tekoa (confirming, securing, pitching a tent, fixing) represents a firm and abiding idea regarding man's organism. Ikkesh the Tekoite (a thought activity belonging to the Tekoa consciousness in the individual) is of a discerning, penetrating, ingenious, visioning character (subtle), yet is inclined to perversity. He is obstinate in clinging to certain kinds of deception and error (perverse, plotting, ensnaring, wicked). This thought activity, however, brings forth some good fruit. Ira, the son of Ikkesh (meaning watcher, watchful), becomes a member of David's guard, a mighty man. The thought power that Ira stands for partakes of the rare discriminating quality of that which Ikkesh represents, and so is a strong factor in protecting the ruling love faculty (David) in consciousness.
