Metaphysical meaning of Zuar (mbd)
Zuar, zu'–är (Heb.)--reduced; lessened; made little; smallness; littleness; brought low.

Father of Nethanel, a prince of the tribe of Issachar, who was chosen from that tribe to help Moses number the Children of Israel in the wilderness of Sinai, by command of Jehovah \\ (Num. 1 :8).

Meta. Humility (made little, smallness). Nethanel, son of Zuar, signifies the grace that God imparts to His children. This grace is realized by those who are small in their own eyes, in so far as the lesser self is concerned. "God . . . giveth grace to the humble" (James 4:6; I Pet. 5:5); "whosoever shall humble himself shall be exalted" (Matt. 23: 12); "Blessed are the meek : for they shall inherit the earth" (Matt. 5:5). (See NETHANEL.)
