Metaphysical meaning of Imri (mbd)
Imri, im'-ri (Heb.)--shedding light; projecting thought; eloquent, commanding; discoursing; talkative.

a A descendant of Perez, son of Judah (I Chron. 9:4). b Zaccur, the son of another Imri, helped to rebuild Jerusalem's wall (Neh. 3:2).

Meta. The projecting of thought outwardly toward expression; the ability to express one's ideas of Truth forcefully and clearly (shedding light, eloquent). This always tends to a degree of talkativeness that, if given way to in the personal, tends to dissipation of one's substance and life force.

One who is inclined to be a great talker should perceive the real spiritual gift that is at the source of this trait of character, and should guard against a mere outer flow of words from habit, with no permanent good to result from it. Such a one needs a deep consecration of this talent to Spirit and the realization of his own Christ dominion over himself, over his every thought and word.
