Metaphysical meaning of Madmenah (mbd)

Metaphysical meaning of Madmenah (mbd)
Madmenah, mad-me'-nah (Heb.)--dunghill; manure heap.

A town of Benjamin, north of Jerusalem. It is named as one of the towns that would be destroyed by the Assyrians in their march against Jerusalem (Isa. 10:31).

Meta. The significance is virtually the same as that of Madmen, except that Madmenah, a town of Benjamin, refers to the attitude that our active faith in God (Benjamin) has toward the lesser thoughts and activities of the personal, or outer, carnal man. When man allows the thoughts of the intellect guided by the senses (Assyrians) to possess the consciousness, he changes his attitude of mind toward both the personal and the spiritual. He then belittles that (the spiritual) which he cannot contact with the senses, and magnifies the things of the outer. Thus this Madmenah of Benjamin, near Jerusalem, becomes a "fugitive."
