Metaphysical meaning of Michri (mbd)
Michri, mich'-ri (Heb.)--my price; price of Jehovah; dowry of Jah; Jah possesses, i. e., by purchase; value of Jah. Father of Uzzi, and grandfather of Elah, who was a chief man of Benjamin (I Chron. 9:8).
Meta. A wise and an understanding heart. Of understanding, it is said that "she is more precious than rubies." "The lips of knowledge are a precious jewel." "How precious also are thy thoughts unto me, O God!" (Prov. 3:15; 20:15; Psa. 139:17).
Knowledge and wisdom come from the Spirit of Christ within one (Jah possesses, dowry of Jah, value of Jah); and the price that one must pay for the conscious attainment of this divine and true understanding is the letting go of the personal self with its limited ideas."Trust in Jehovah with all thy heart, And lean not upon thine own understanding:In all thy ways acknowledge him,And he will direct thy paths."
When the individual gives himself over to true, spiritual understanding, and has a strong, active faith in God (Michri was a Benjamite) he brings forth Uzzi (Jah is strong, Jehovah is my strength) and Elah (oak, signifying a consciousness of strength and protection).
