Metaphysical meaning of Pethahiah (mbd)
Pethahiah, peth-a-hi-ah (Heb.)--Jehovah has opened; Jah is the open (door); whom Jehovah unbinds; whom Jah sets free; freed by Jehovah.

a A priest in David's reign (I Chron. 24:16). b Other Levites by this name are mentioned in Ezra 10:23 and in Nehemiah 9:5 and 11:24.

Meta. The "way" out of every human, material limitation and apparent error, or inharmony. This "way" is made by Jehovah, I AM, Christ within the individual, acting in conjunction with the universal law of Truth (Jehovah has opened, Jah is the open door, freed by Jehovah). "God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation make also the way of escape" (I Cor. 10:13).

We should always remember that no temptation comes from God. "Let no man say when he is tempted, I am tempted of God; for God cannot be tempted with evil, and he himself tempteth no man: but each man is tempted, when he is drawn away by his own lust and enticed" (James 1:13, 14). The true way of deliverance out of every temptation or seeming error, however, is by means of Spirit, Truth; and it is because of his true, inner, abiding spiritual nature that man cannot be overcome of error to the point of annihilation, but is sure to triumph in the end. Truth must endure and must prevail over all.
