Metaphysical meaning of Teresh (mbd)
Teresh, te'-resh (Heb.)--hard; severe; austere; strict; unyielding; stony.

A chamberlain of King Ahasuerus of Persia (Esth. 2:21).

Meta. A harsh, rigidly methodical thought (hard, austere, strict, severe, unyielding, stony) belonging to the outer sense consciousness of man, that serves the puffed-up personal will (King Ahasuerus) but would put in bonds and destroy the dominance of this will if it did not conform in every particular to the very exact rules that this thought seeks to promote (Teresh was one of the two chamberlains who became angry with the king and attempted to kill him).
