Metaphysical meaning of Keilah (mbd)
Keilah, kei'-lah (Heb.)--carving; circular motion; inclosing; oppressing; citadel; fortress; castle; bow; sling.

a A city in the lowlands of Judah (Josh. 15:44; I Sam. 23:1-13). b "The Garmite," a man of Judah (I Chron. 4:19). c The "district of Keilah" is mentioned in Nehemiah 3:17.

Meta. A thought, a group of thoughts. and a state of consciousness, belonging to the lower and more earthly phase of the Judah consciousness, that are firmly established, fortified, in that which Garmite symbolizes; namely: man's innate belief in the truth that his organism is structurally strong. (See GARMITE.)

This that Keilah signifies has its foundation in spiritual thought (circular motion). Because of the influence brought to bear on it by the personal or sense consciousness, it has crystallized into material thought, into the belief that strength and safety exist in the material, in outer expressions of force (inclosing oppressing, citadel, fortress, castle, bow, sling).
