Metaphysical meaning of Nophah (mbd)
Meta. The personal mind (Moab), which is often boastful, noisy, showy, explosive, tempestuous, yet is empty of real Truth and power (puffing, blowing, blustering, a windy place). Back of this phase of the carnal mind that Nophah represents is the very breath of life (Nophah comes from the same root as that used in Genesis 2:7, in connection with the "breath of life"). Under spiritual understanding and direction the expression will take on a very different aspect.
