Metaphysical meaning of Shebna (mbd)

Metaphysical meaning of Shebna (mbd)
Shebna, sheb'-nå (Heb.)--growth; increase; youth; youthfulness; freshness; tenderness; delicacy; strength; fullness; completeness.

An Israelite, scribe to King Hezekiah of Judah (II Kings 18:37).

Meta. A phase of the subjective memory (a scribe to King Hezekiah of Judah) that receives and transcribes thoughts that tend to growth, fruitfulness; youthfulness, strength, love, and completeness as they enter the consciousness; thus the expression of spiritual strength in the executive power of the mind is aided.

The mind that Shebna typifies does not accept anything of error, but brings all suggestions and fears of failure and weakness to the executive faculty (Hezekiah) that they may be dealt with according to Truth. (Shebna was one of those who brought the words of Rabshakeh, an officer of the king of Assyria, to Hezekiah, who prayed to Jehovah and was given the assurance through Isaiah that God would fight for the Israelites and the Assyrians would be defeated.) Thus fear of failure and defeat is overcome.
