Metaphysical meaning of Silla (mbd)

Metaphysical meaning of Silla (mbd)
Silla, sil-lå (Heb.)--lifted up; raised; cast up; highway; causeway; elevated; exalted; high; tall; slender; flexible; pendulous; twig; branch; osier; willowbasket; broom.

Joash, king of Judah, was killed by two of his servants "at the house of Millo, on the way that goeth down to Silla" (II Kings 12:20).

Meta. The highway to victory--a putting away of error by denial, and a lifting up of Truth (elevated, exalted, branch), thus converting the consciousness from the likeness of "broken cisterns, that can hold no water," into a container of substance and Truth (basket). In broom we also see a thought of cleansing, of putting away error. Joash was a good king at the beginning of his reign over Judah, but after Jehoiada the high priest died Joash became very wicked and worshiped other gods (II Chron. 24:15 to end of chapter. See the metaphysical interpretations of JOZACAR and JEHOZABAD, the servants who conspired against Joash and killed him.)
