Metaphysical meaning of Poratha (mbd)
Poratha, por'-a-thå (Heb. fr. Pers.) --given by lot; divided by chance; mandate of fate.

One of the ten sons of Haman. He was slain by the Jews in Shushan (Esth. 9:8).

Meta. The error belief of the outer sense man that good comes to one by "luck," "fate," and not as a sure result of right and wise thinking and doing, of living in harmony with divine law and using one's faculties and powers in loving, faithful service to God, to one's fellow men, and to one's own highest spiritual welfare. This error belief in luck and fate (given by lot, divided by chance, mandate of fate) is in favor in the adverse consciousness of man, and bears fruit accordingly, but its fruit is not for life and good.
