Metaphysical meaning of Jetur (mbd)

Metaphysical meaning of Jetur (mbd)
Jetur, je'-tur (Heb.)--inclosure; encircled; nomadic; encampment; border; fence; boundary; pillar; cairn; rock; mountain range; that which keeps within bounds, i. e., in good order.

Son of Ishmael (Gen. 25:15).

Meta. An idea of order, solidity, strength (that which keeps within bounds, i. e., in good order, a pillar, rock), that has sprung from the carnal (Ishmael). This Jetur belief thinks that the individual can be kept in orderly existence only when limited to certain lines of thought and action, when his thoughts, beliefs, and acts are fenced in, as it were (inclosure, encircled, boundary). Sense man's way of making one better is always that of limiting one by means of outer rules and regulations; it knows nothing of true spiritual freedom and guidance, which alone can bring about real strength, unity, and adjustment in consciousness. Jetur is the central thought in the state of consciousness signified by Ituræa. (See ITURÆA.)
