Metaphysical meaning of Magbish (mbd)

Metaphysical meaning of Magbish (mbd)
Magbish, mag'-bish (Heb.)--gathering; kneading together; agglutination; stiffening; amassing; a hump; a height.

The "children," descendants, or inhabitants of Magbish, to the number of one hundred and fifty-six, returned with Zerubbabel from the Babylonian captivity (Ezra 2:30). Magbish is thought to have been a place rather than a person, a place in the Benjamite territory in Palestine.

Meta. That in man's higher consciousness which attracts, gathers together, unifies, conserves (gathering, kneading together, amassing, a height). This quality leads to one's being reestablished in substance and Truth after having been entangled in sense confusion (captured by the Babylonians).
