Metaphysical meaning of Pahath-moab (mbd)
Meta. While the land of Moab represents the body and the most external conditions of life, there is good in Moab, or a great possibility of good. (See MOAB.) Pahath-moab (meaning prefect of Moab, governor of Moab, an Israelite who returned from the Babylonian captivity, and one who joined Nehemiah in sealing the covenant) is symbolical of thoughts in the higher religious consciousness of man that have a degree of dominion over that which Moab represents.
