Metaphysical meaning of Jarmuth (mbd)
Jarmuth, jär'-muth (Heb.)--high; height; a high place; casting down death; deceiving death; downcast by death.

a A place in Canaan that was captured by the Israelites under Joshua. Its king, Piram, was slain (Josh. 10:3). It became a city of Judah (Josh. 15:35). b A city of Issachar that was given over to the Levites (Josh. 21:29).

Meta. Under the Amorite king, Piram, Jarmuth signifies the exalting of death, the human belief that death is unconquerable.

Under the leadership of spiritual I AM (Joshua, savior) the true thoughts in us (Israelites) get a right vision of Truth and put away the belief in and fear of death- then death is cast down (casting down death) and life only is exalted--given the high place--in consciousness.
