Metaphysical meaning of Lebana (mbd)

Metaphysical meaning of Lebana (mbd)
Lebana, leb'-a-nĂ¥ (Heb.)--whiteness purity; brilliance; frankincense, i. e., from its whiteness; the moon.

"The children of Lebana" were among the Nethinim who returned with Zerubbabel from the Babylonian captivity (Neh. 7:48). The name is spelled Lebanah in Ezra 2:45.

Meta. The purifying and altogether lovely, refining effect that true service and spiritual worship have on the character of the individual who renders them (whiteness, purity, brilliance, frankincense). Even if such service and worship are of the intellect, as is suggested by the moon, a definition of Lebana, they are still very uplifting and good, if given in wholeness and singleness of heart and purpose.
