Metaphysical meaning of Zin (mbd)
Zin, zin (Heb.)--sharp; pointed; piercing; coldness; thorn; covering; protection; preservation; shield; buckler; target; depression; lowland; shrub; low palm.
Meta. A seemingly very small beginning of a comprehension of Truth, of preservation, salvation, and of victory, working in the subconsciousness of the individual toward the body consciousness (lowland, low palm, piercing, covering, preservation, buckler). In this phase of thought the way to possession of the Promised Land (the renewal and spiritualization of the body of man) still appears very thorny (sharp, thorn), and there is not the necessary fervor to carry one through to complete victory (coldness).
