Metaphysical meaning of Suah (mbd)

Metaphysical meaning of Suah (mbd)
Suah, su'-ah (Heb.)--sweep away; wipe off; wash away; sweepings; filth; dung; sweeping everything before one; eradicating; going afield; meditation; thought; discourse; speech.

Son of Zophah, of the Israelitish tribe of Asher (I Chron. 7:36).

Meta. A cleansing away of error by the word of denial (sweep away, eradicating, filth, dung, discourse, speech). Greater discrimination and true understanding are needed in this activity, that only error may be put away, since the tendency is to sweep everything before one in the intensity of the denials. Also, the sons of Zophah show a state of thought that is illumined by Spirit, or is awakened to a conception of Truth but is not yet fully established in the good, since some of these sons stand for that which includes error, limited ideals, while others symbolize high spiritual truths.
