Metaphysical meaning of Pisgah (mbd)
Pisgah, pis-'gah (Heb.)--cut up; divided; cleft; hill; peak; point.

A mountain or range of mountains in Moab, across the Jordan directly opposite Jericho. From the top of Pisgah Moses was given a view of the Promised Land (Deut. 34:1).

Meta. A very high, exalted state of mind in that phase of the consciousness signified by Moab (peak, hill, a mountain in Moab; see MOAB). From this elevated place in thought the spiritually developing phase of man's consciousness that is represented by Moses perceives the Promised Land, has a vision of the redeemed body. Henceforth a dividing line is drawn, in the thoughts of the individual who has reached this phase of development, between the old material ideas regarding his organism and the high possibilities that have been revealed to him (cut up, divided, cleft).
