Metaphysical meaning of Oholiab (mbd)
Oholiab (A.V., Aholiab), o-ho'-li-ab (Heb.)--his father's tent; tent of the father; my father's tabernacle; temple of the father.

Son of Ahisamach, of the tribe of Dan, a wise and skillful man who was chosen by Jehovah to help do the fine work in building the tabernacle with its furniture, vessels, and the like (Exod. 31:6).

Meta. An idea in the judgment faculty of the individual (a man of the tribe of Dan) that has been quickened by divine wisdom, and so recognizes that the whole organism of man is of God, belongs to God, and is not material but is divine in its origin (his father's tent, my father's tabernacle, temple of the father). Thus this idea becomes a builder, or one that aids in bringing into expression and manifestation a truer, purer, and more stable consciousness and body.
