E. wings (Dan. vii. 3) s. rational principles grounded in man's proprium. 3901.
EAR. They who are dutiful and obedient in another life, belong to the province of the e., yea, cor. to hearing itself. 2542. Those answering to the cartilaginous parts of the e., attend but little to the sense of a thing; but those answering to the more interior parts, attend more perfectly. The nature of the interior parts may be known from their uses. 4656. The region where the e. is, cor. to obedience alone, without affection. 4326.

EARRINGS were of two sorts, viz., such as were applied above the nose to the forehead, and such as were applied to the ears; those which were applied above the nose to the forehead, were badges rep. of good; and those which were applied to the ears, were badges rep. of obedience, and are e. but in the original tongue, both sorts are expressed by the same term. 4551. E. (Gen. xxxv.) are insignia rep. of obedience; consequently, they s. things actual, for to obey, involves to do a thing in act. 4551. E. of gold s. those things which appertain to simple good. 3103.
EARS of SPIKES of CORN (Gen. xli.) s. scientifics of the natural principle. 5212.
EARTH s. all inferior things cor. to internal and superior things, as inferior, rational, and natural things, whereof also things celestial and spiritual are pred.; by reason of cor., these inferior things are such as are in the inferior heavens, and also in the church, and in external worship, and likewise such as are in the literal sense of the Word; in short, all things which proceed from things internal, and are fixed and exhibited in things external, as being things natural, are called c. and the Lord's footstool. 2162. E. is sometimes used to den. the people or men who are out of the church; it is rarely used in the Word to den. the whole globe of the e., unless at the same time it s. the whole human race, with respect to their state as a church, or as not a church. 1066. E., in an opp. sense, s. damnation, because when there is no church in man, there is damnation ; in the last sense, e. is mentioned in Isa. xiv. 12, xxi. 9, xxvi. 19, 21, xxix. 4, xlvii. 1, lxiii. G ; Lam. ii. 10; Ezek. xxvi. 20, xxxii. 24; Num. xvi. 29, 33, xxvi. 10, and in other places. A. R. 285.

E. (Isa. Ix. 80) s. the internal spiritual man, because therein the church is, which, in general, by c. is s. A. E. 365. The e. which helped the woman, and swallowed the flood which the dragon cast out of his mouth (Rev. xii. 1C), s. those in the old church who are not dragons (although amongst the dragons who separate faith from charity), because they are in ignorant simplicity, and live the life of faith, which is charity. A. E. 764. E. s. the church as consisting of the nations and people there; and field, the church as to the dissemination of divine truth and its reception. A. E. 388. E. is distinguished from ground, as the man of the church and the church itself are distinguished from each other, or as love and faith are distinguished. 662. E., land, ground, and field are frequently mentioned in the Word, and by e., when applied in a good sense, is s. the Lord's kingdom in the heavens and in the e. The same is s. by ground, but in a more confined sense; the same is also s. by field, but in a sense still more confined. 3310. The e. and sea (Rev. xi. 6) s. the inferior heavens. A. E. 609. The spirits of this e., in the grand man, have relation to the external sense. E. U. 89. The principal reason why the Lord was willing to be born on our e., and not on another, was because of the Word, in that it might be written on our e., and when written, be afterwards published throughout the whole e., and when once published, be preserved to all posterity, and thus that it might be made manifest, even to all in another life, that God was made man. E. U. 113. In every other e. (besides this) divine truth is manifested by word of mouth, by spirits and angels, but this manifestation is confined to families; for mankind in most e. live distinct according to families, wherefore, divine truth, thus revealed by spirits and angels, is not conveyed far beyond the limits of families, and unless a new revelation constantly succeeds, truth is either perverted or perishes; it is otherwise on our e., where divine truth, which is the Word, remains forever in its integrity. E. U. 120.
EARTH, lower, is proximately beneath the feet, and the region round about to a small distance; there most persons are after death, before they are elevated into heaven; mention is made also of this e. in the Word throughout; beneath it are the places of vastation, which are called pits; below those places and round about, to much extent, are hells. 4728.
EARTHQUAKES s. concussions, paroxysms, inversions, and distractions, i.e., separations or tearings away from heaven, of all things appertaining to the church.

E. and Moab, in many passages are named together, because they s. those who are principled in good; but the difference is, that E. den. the good of the natural principle, to which are adjoined the doctrinals of truth; whereas Moab den. natural good, such as has place with those, with whom such doctrinals are not conjoined. The former and the latter appear alike in their external form, but not in their internal. 3322.
EDUCATION. The order of progression by e., is apparent from scientific to celestial truths, but in reality it is the celestial which flows in through the successive degrees, and adapts rational and scientific truth to itself. E. of infants in heaven. H. and H. 334-44. 1495.

EGYPT s. the natural man in conjunction with the spiritual, and in such case the affection of truth. But in the opp. sense, it s. the natural man separated from the spiritual, and in that case, insanity in spiritual things. For the Egyptians cultivated the science of correspondences, whence came their hieroglyphics, which science they afterwards turned into magic, and made it idolatrous. A. R. 503.

EL-BETHEL (Gen. xxxiv. 7, and xxxv.) s. an holy natural principle; for when the Lord made his human divine, he first made it holy; the difference between making divine, and holy, is this, that the divine is Jehovah himself; whereas the holy is, what is from Jehovah; the former is the divine esse, but the latter, is what thence exists. When the Lord glorified himself, he also made his human the divine esse, or Jehovah. 4559.

ENGRAVER in STONE (Exod. xviii. 11) s. the good of love, thus the things pertaining to the will of the regenerate man, for this is from the good of love ; because the voluntary principle of the regenerate man receives the good of love, and his intellectual principle receives the truths of faith. 9846.

And by the translation of E., ver. 24, is s. that as such doctrine at that time was not allowable, it was preserved for the use of posterity, 513, 516-521.

E. s. the intellectual principle of the church, Israel its spiritual principle, and Judah its celestial principle; and because the intellectual principle of the church is s. by E., therefore, it is often said of E., that he goes away into Egypt and into Assyria, for by Egypt are s. scientifics, and by Assyria the reasonings therein grounded; both the former and the latter are pred. of the intellectual principle. 5354.
EPHRATA s. the Word as to its natural sense, and Bethlehem, the Word as to its spiritual sense, and there the Lord was willing to be born, because he is the Word. A. E. 700. E.

E. itself is in the world of spirits. H. and H. 600. Everywhere in the spiritual world there is an e. between heaven and between hell, and where there is an e., then two contrary forces continually act against one another; the one acts, and the other reacts ; and where there is continual action and reaction, there is a continual combat. Hence all things of heaven are called an army, and also all things of hell. A. E. 573.

(Gen. xxvii.) rep. the divine good and divine truth of the Lord's divine natural principle, as conjoined with each other like brethren, which principles, considered in themselves, are nothing else but one power (or potency) together to form and receive actual good and truth. But this rep. was after that the Lord had reduced to order the natural principle as to good and truth in himself, so that it might receive the divine principle, and after that he had successively expelled all the human principle which was from the mother. 3599.
ESCAPE, to, den. liberation from damnation by remains. 5899.
ESEK [Contention] (Gen. xxvi. 20) s. a denial of the internal sense of the Word. 3427.

ESPOUSALS, love of thine (Jer. ii. 2), s. the state of the reformation and regeneration of man, while from natural he is made spiritual. A. E. 730.
ESSE, the, of man, is from his father. 5041. The e. of the life of every one is that from which he is conceived, and the existere of life from that e., is the human in form. This was the case with the Lord. 10.738. The e. of truth is good, and the e. of thought is will. 9995. The essential e. of all things is the divine good of divine love. 10.125, 10.262.
ESSENCE. There is one only e., one only substance, and one only form, from which all the e., substances, and forms which were created, are. D. P. 157. The divine essence is divine love and divine wisdom. U. T. 36-48. The divine e. is one and individual. D. L.W. 35. That which is supreme, being also the inmost, constitutes the very e. of all that is derived from it; and the e., like a soul, forms them into a body after its own image. B. E. 40. E. without form, and form without e., is not any thing. U. T. 367.
ESSENTIALS. There are three e. in the church; viz., an acknowledgment of the Lord's divinity, an acknowledgment of the holiness of the Word, and the life which is called charity. D. P. 259. There are three e. in the Lord, which are called father, son, and holy spirit. U. T. 139.
ESSENTIALS of FAITH, the, which are necessary to salvation, are expressed in the letter of the Word, such as they are in the internal sense. (See Deut. 4-6 and several other passages.) 2225. S. S. 55.
ETERNAL, is a term specifically applicable to the Lord's divine existere, or to his divine wisdom. 3701. E. is also pred. of the divine celestial or good, when generation is pred. of the divine spiritual, or truth. (See Exod. iii. 15 ; xxvii. 21, etc.) 9789.
ETERNITY. In the other life, they can think of the essence and omnipresence of God from e., that is, of God, before the creation of the world, inasmuch as they think of the essence of God from e. abstracted from time, and of his omnipresence abstracted from space, and thus comprehend such things as transcend the ideas of the natural man. C. S. L. 326, 329.

(Isa. lvi. 3, 5) den. the natural man as to good, and the son of the stranger, the natural man as to truth; for the church of the Lord is external and internal; they who are of the external church are natural, and they who are of the internal church are spiritual; they who are natural, and yet are in good, are e., and they who are in truth, are the sons of the stranger; and whereas the truly spiritual or internal [men] cannot be given, except within the church; therefore, also by the sons of the stranger, are s. they who are out of the church, or the Gentiles, and who yet are in truth, according to their religious principle, and by e. they who are in good. 5081. E. (Matt. xix. 12) s. those who are subjects of the celestial marriage; born from the womb, those who are like the celestial angels; made of men, those who are like the spiritual angels; and made of themselves, those who are like angelic spirits, not so much influenced by charity, as by obedience. 394. Those who are in the natural marriage of good and truth (or in the natural degree of regeneration), are understood by those who make themselves e. lor the kingdom of heaven's sake; for the natural, by knowledges and sciences, acquire to themselves natural light (lumen), and thereby the good of life, according to that, the affection, and thence conscience. A. E. 710. C. S. L. 156.
EUPHRATES; the river, s. interior reasonings, whereby those who are in the doctrine of justification by faith alone confirm themselves. A. R. 444. The all of the church as to good, and also as to evil. A. E. 410. The interiors of man's mind, which are called rationals. A. R. 444. A. C. 118.

EVANGELISTS. The Lord spake the Word, written by the E., in many cases, from his own mouth, and the rest from the spirit of his mouth. S. S. 2. In their writings are contained the Lord's words, which include a spiritual sense, by which there is given immediate communication with heaven, but the writings of the apostles, do not contain such a sense, nevertheless, they are useful books to the church. A. E. 813.
EVANGELIZE, to. Where mention is made of evangelizing and of the gospel, in the Word, thereby is s. the advent of the Lord. A. E. 612.

EVENING, NIGHT, and COCK-CROWING. The e. s. a state of the ending of faith and charity, which takes place; when man causes his own day of judgment, and extinguishes those things which he has imbibed in his childhood; n. is a state of no faith and charity; c.c., or the dawn, is a state of the beginning of faith and charity, which takes place when man loves truths and reformation by them, in which state, if man dies, he remains therein, and is judged according thereto. A. E. 187.
EVEN SO s. confirmation of what precedes that it would be so. A. E. 40, 979.
EVERY ONE (Gen. xx. 7) s. every thing or all things. 2538.
EVIL, all, has its rise from the sensual principle, and also from the scientific. 251. The origin of e. is from the abuse of the faculties which are proper to man, and which are called rationality and liberty. D. L. W. 264. E. derived from an hereditary principle, and acquired by actual habit, adheres close to man, in all his particular thoughts, yea in the smallest constituents of thought, and draws him downwards. 2410. All e. is conceived from the devil, as a father, and is born from atheistical faith, as a mother; and on the contrary, all good is conceived from the Lord, as a father, and is born from a saving faith, as a mother. A. V. C. R. 35. Every e. into which man is born of his parents, is implanted in his natural man; but not any in his spiritual man, because into the spiritual man, he is born of the Lord. C. S. L. 345 Every e. has its limit, which it is not allowed to pass; when a wicked person passes this limit, he plunges himself into punishment. 1857. There is an e. derived from the false, and a false from e.; the former exists, when any one from the assumed false principle, that some one particular e. is not a sin, commits that sin accordingly. But the false from e. exists, when a man is naturally inclined to the love of some e., and confirms the propriety thereof, in his understanding, by arguments drawn from appearances. 1212, 1679.
EVIL SPIRITS, in another life, are scarce any thing else but lusts and fantasies, having acquired to themselves no other life; their fantasies are such, that they perceive them as realities. 1069.
EVILS, the, attendant on man, have several origins, the first from ancestors to the father, and from the father into man's self; another from what is actual, which has several origins, in general two; first, that he receives e. from others, without his own fault; and secondly, that he receives from himself, thus with his own fault; what man receives from others, without his own fault, is s. by what is torn, in the Word; but what he receives from himself, thus with his own fault, is s. by carcass. See Lev. xvii. 15,16 ; xxii. 8. 4171. E. which a man thinks allowable, although he does them not, are appropriated to him. D. P. 81. D. L. W. 118. The interior e. of man, are derived from the father's side, and the exterior, from the mother's. 3701. The decalogue teaches what e. are sins. All kinds of murder, adultery, theft, false witness, with the concupiscences prompting thereto, are e. which are to be shunned as sins. No one can shun e. as sins, so as to have them inwardly in aversion unless he fights against them. If any one shuns e. from any other motive, than because they are sins, he does not shun them, but only conceals them from the world. Dec. 18-114. It is a law of divine providence, that man as of himself, should remove e. as sins in the external man, for thus and no otherwise the. Lord has power to remove e. in the internal man, and at the same time, in such a case, in the external man. U. T. 510-566. D. P. 106-129. N. J. D. 159-173.
EVILS and FALSES. Angels excuse e. and f. in man, which e. spirits excite and condemn. 1088. E. and f. are in all opp. to goods and truths, because e. and f. are diabolical and infernal, and goods and truths are divine and celestial. D. L. W. 271. E. with f. are with the wicked, as it were, in the centre, and goods with truths, in the circumference; but goods with truths, with the good, are in the centre, and e. with f. in the circumference. D. P. 86.
EWE LAMBS s. the holiness of innocence. 2720.
EXACTORS s. those who violate truths. A. E. 555.
EXALT, to, s. worship from good by truths. A. E. 411.

EXINANITION is a term applicable to the Lord's voluntary state of humiliation in the world. U. T. 104-110. E. also s. a state of desolation and vastation [in man]. 5360.
EXIST, to, nothing can e., unless its esse be in it. 4523, 34.524, 6040, 6056. All and singular the things of nature not only e. from the divine, or first being, but also continually subsists from him, through the spiritual world. 775.
EXISTERE or EXISTENCE, the, is the external manifestation of the essence, or esse in a subject and form. U. T. 18, note. E. is pred. of the Lord, only when he was in the world, and there put on the divine esse, but when he was made the divine esse, e. could no longer be pred. of him. otherwise than as somewhat proceeding from him, which appears as an e. in him, whereas it is not in him, but from him. 3938.
EXODUS, book of. The quality of the natural man, when subordinate to the spiritual, and its quality when separated from the spiritual, is fully des. in the internal sense of that book. A. E. 654.
EXPANSE, the, over the heads of the cherubim (Ezek. i. 26, and x. 1) s. heaven. A. R. 14. See Earth, Heavens.
EXPANSES. There are six e., viz., the third, middle, and first heaven; the first, middle, and third hell. The spirits of the third hell are held in bonds by those in the third heaven; those in the middle hell by those in the middle heaven; those in the first hell by those in the first heaven. A. Cr. 34.
EXPECTATION OF JESUS CHRIST (Rev. i. 9) s. the new church established by the Lord, where the divinity of his humanity will be known and acknowledged. A. E. 49. A. R. 33.
EXPEL, to be removed. 7980. Cast down and destroyed. 8295.
EXPIATION or PROPITIATION is protection from the overflowing of evil. 645. So long as man is in e., he cannot receive the good of love and the truth of faith. 10.177.
EXPLICATIONS of the WORD must be made, as to its internal sense; because the inmost or supreme sense transcends the human understanding. 6827.
EXPLORE. To inquire into and search out. A. E. 100.
EXPLORATION, consists in an exquisite weighing or liberation, to prevent the least minimum of the false being conjoined to good, or of truth to evil 3116.
EXPRESSIONS. How the affections treated of in the internal sense fall into natural e. 3605.
EXPULSION from the garden, s. the deprivation of wisdom. D. P. 313.
EXPURGATION, the spiritual affection of truth. A. E. 475.
EXTENDED. Every thing e. belongs to matter. Exp. A. Cr. 33.
EXTENSION, the, of the sphere of perception, or its limits, is proportionate to opposites. 2694. Thought diffuses itself into the societies of spirits and angels round about, and the faculty of understanding and perceiving is according to that e. 6599.
EXTERIOR MAN. If the e. m. wholly perverts, or extinguishes that which flows in by the interiors, then the interior man is deprived of his light from heaven, and that part which is towards heaven is shut, and a communication opened with hell. 5427. "Whatsoever was from the e. m. of the Lord, had with it something hereditary, and thus also evil. 1921.
EXTERNAL, the, exists from, and has its essence from the internal, but it may appear otherwise than according to its essence from the internal.
D. P. 224. The e. is regenerated much later, and with greater difficulty, than the internal. 3469.
EXTERNAL MAN. Three things constitute the e. m.; viz., the rational, the scientific, and the sensual e. 1580. The e. m., properly so called, consists of, and is constituted by, scientifics appertaining to the memory, and by affections appertaining to the love, wherein man is principled, and also by the sensual things which are proper to spirits, together with the pleasures which appertain unto spirits. 1718. The e. m. is formed of things sensual; not such as belong to the body, but such as are derived from bodily things; and this is the case not only with men, but also with spirits. 976.
EXTERNAL WORSHIP, without internal, is only a foolish babbling, and often conceals the most abominable wickedness. 1094.

EXULTATION s. delight from good, and gladness s. delight from truth. A. E. 294.
EYE, the, s. the understanding, because they cor.; for as the e. sees from natural light, so does the understanding from spiritual light, wherefore to see, is pred. of both. A. R. 48. The right e. den. the affection of good, and the left the affection of truth. The sight of the left e. cor. to the truths of faith, and the sight of the right e. to their goods. 4410, 6923. The left e. is the intellectual principle, but the right e. is the affection of that principle. 2701. The e., or rather its sight, cor. especially to those societies in the other life, which are in paradisiacal scenery; these appear above in front, a little to the right, where there are presented gardens in living view, with trees and flowers of so many genera and species, that those which grow throughout the whole earth, bear but a small proportion to them in number. This heaven is distinguished into several heavens, to which cor. singular the things which are in the cameras of the e. 4528. The heaven of those who appertain to the province of the interior e., and who are to the right in front, in a small degree of elevation, are encompassed with an atmosphere of very small continued rainbows. 1623. E., when spoken of the Lord, s. divine wisdom, omniscience, and providence. A. R. 48.

R. 240, 246. The spiritual heavens cor. to the e. A. E. 831. All infants in the grand man are in the province of the e.; those in the right are of a celestial genius; and those in the left of a spiritual genius. H. and H. 333. Those in that province are in great powers of intellection and lucid perception, and are more keenly intellectual than others. H. and H. 96.
EYE-SALVE (Rev. iii. 18) s. a medicine whereby the understanding is healed. For e.s. is an ointment composed of meal and oil; and by the cor. of these in a spiritual sense, the spiritual eyes of man are opened. A. R. 214. A. E. 245.
