Metaphysical meaning of Zimri (mbd)
Zimri, zim'–ri (Heb.)--celebrated in song; singing; music; praise; jubilation; dancing; leaping; mountain sheep; gazelle.

a Son of Zerah, and grandson of Judah (I Chron. 2 :6). In Joshua 7 :1, he is called Zabdi. b Son of Salu, a prince of the Simeonites. He was slain by Phinehas (Num. 25:14). c A servant of Elah, king of Israel, who killed Elah and reigned in his stead (I Kings 16:9). d Others of the same name.

Meta. An inner sense of harmony; also an inner lauding and praising, thus a lifting up, of the activity–of–life idea in individual consciousness (celebrated in song, singing, dancing, music, mountain sheep, gazelle). In this way a new and increased realization of life becomes vibrant throughout the consciousness. Unless established in understanding and spiritual dominion it is likely to contribute to just such conditions and situations as are expressed in the histories of the persons named Zimri that are mentioned in Numbers 25: 14, I Kings 16 :9–20, and in the immediate descen ants of the one who is called Zabdi in the 7th chapter of Joshua. The Achan of the tribe of Judah, who committed the trespass that is told about in this chapter, was a grandson of this Zimri, or Zabdi. (See ZABDI.)
