Metaphysical meaning of Shual (mbd)
Shual, shu'-al (Heb.)--digging; burrowing; sly, difficult to capture; howling; coughing; fox; jackal.

a A place in Palestine into which one of the three companies of Philistine spoilers came when fighting against Israel (I Sam. 13:17). b Son of Zophah of the tribe of Asher (I Chron. 7:36).

Meta. The wisdom and cunning of the outer senses (fox, jackal); also the seeming ability of that which is of sense to hide itself (digging, burrowing) from the higher understanding of the individual and thus avoid being truly understood and transmuted into higher spiritual expression (difficult to capture). Shual, the son of Zophah, of the Israelitish tribe of Asher, shows one's lifting up this wisdom and cunning of the outer senses (as they refer to the animal nature in the individual) to higher expression and transforming them into truer skill and wisdom. (See HAZAR-SHUAL.)
