Metaphysical meaning of Jetheth (mbd)

Metaphysical meaning of Jetheth (mbd)
Jetheth, je'-theth (Heb.)--fixing firmly; securing; stability; subjection; subjugation; a tent peg; pin; nail.

A chief, of Esau, in the land of Edom (Gen. 36:40).

Meta. A ruling thought in the outer and seemingly material consciousness of man (Esau and Edom refer to the physical) that believes in force, in compelling, driving, binding, suppressing (subjugation, subjection, a tent peg, nail) in order to keep one steadfast and in place. This of course is error, and leads to bondage instead of true freedom.
