Metaphysical meaning of Mordecai (mbd)
Mordecai, môr'-de-cai (Heb. fr. Pers.) --little man, manikin; of Merodach; dedicated to Mars; crushed by rebellion; contrition.

a Cousin of Esther (Esth. 2--10). b A man by this name is mentioned as having returned with Zerubbabel from the Babylonian captivity (Ezra 2:2).

Meta. Victorious for Truth, a spiritual power working within each soul for its full redemption. Little man, and contrition, definitions of the name Mordecai, signify that humbleness which always marks the truly great individual, or idea, and a repentance or turning away from error and a resolute turning to Truth. Mars, the Babylonian god of war, here indicates overcoming power. (See MERODACH.)
