TABERNACLE. By t. nearly the same is s. as by temple, namely, in a supreme sense, the Lord's divine humanity, and, in a relative sense, heaven and the church. But by t., in this latter sense, is s. the celestial church, which is in the good of love from the Lord to the Lord, and by temple the spiritual church, which is in the truths of wisdom from the Lord. The t. s. the celestial kingdom, because the most ancient church, which was celestial, as being principled in love to the Lord, performed divine worship in t.; and the ancient church, which was a spiritual church, performed divine worship in temples. T. were of wood, and temples of stone, and wood s. good, and stone truth. Since the most ancient church, which was a celestial church, by reason of its love to the Lord, and consequent conjunction with him, celebrated divine worship in t., therefore the Lord commanded Moses to build a t., in which all things of heaven and the church were rep.; which was so holy, that it was not lawful for any one to go into it, except Moses, Aaron, and his sons; and if any one of the people entered, he would die. (Num. xvii. 12,13; xviii. 1, 22, 23; xix. 14-19.) In the inmost part of it was the ark, in which were the two tables of the decalogue, over which was the mercy seat and the cherubims; and without the vail, was the table for the shew-bread, the altar of incense, and the candlestick with seven lamps; all which were rep. of heaven and the church; it is des. Exod. xxvi. 7-16; xxxvi. 8-37, and we read that the model thereof was shown to Moses on Mount Sinai (Exod. xxv. 9; xxvi. 30); and whatsoever it is given to be seen from heaven, the same is rep. of heaven, and thence of the church. In memory of the most holy worship of the Lord in t. by the most ancient people, and of their conjunction with him by love, the feast of t. was instituted, as mentioned in Lev. xxiii. 39-44; Deut. xvi. 13, 14; Zech. xiv. 16, 18, 19. A. R. 585. T. (Rev. xiii.) s. the church as to doctrine and worship. A. E. 799. See Feast of Tabernacles.
TABERNACLE of GOD (Rev. xxi. 3) s. the celestial church, in a universal sense, the celestial kingdom of the Lord, and, in a supreme sense, the divine humanity of the Lord. The reason why t., in a supreme sense, means the Lord's divine humanity, is because this is s. by temple, as may appear from John ii. 18. 21: Mal. iii. 1; Rev. xxi. 22, and elsewhere; the same is s. by t,, with this difference, that by temple is meant the Lord's divine humanity with respect to divine truth, or divine wisdom; and by t. is meant the Lord's divine humanity with respect to divine good or divine love. A. R. 882.
TABERNACLE and TEXT. T. s. the church consisting of those who are in the good of love to the Lord, and tent s. the church consisting of those who are in truths der. from that good. A. E. 799. By God's forsaking the habitation of Shiloh, and the tent which he placed amongst men (Ps. lxviii. (30), s. that the goods of love, and truths of doctrine were destroyed. A. E. 811.
TABLE. Tables s. all things which should nourish the spiritual life, because by tables are understood the food which is upon them. A. E. 235. Tables full of vomiting and what is cast up s. truths and goods falsified and adulterated. 235. Tables s. instructions. 310. To sit at t. s. to be spiritually nourished. 727. A t. (Exod. xxv. 2:3) s. heaven, as to the reception of such things which are from the Lord there, and which are the good of love and the good of faith, and beatitude and felicity thence der. 9527.
TABLES (Exod. xxxii. 16) s. the external of the Word, because they are here distinguished from the writing, which is its internal. The external of the Word is the literal sense, and that sense is like a table, or a plane, upon which the internal sense is inscribed. 10.453. The second t. (Exod. xxxii.) upon which the decalogue was written, s. the Word in every complex. 10.452.
TABLES of the DECALOGUE. There are two tables upon which the precepts of the decalogue are written, one for the Lord, the other for man. What the first table contains is, that a plurality of Gods are not to be worshipped, but only one; and the second, that evils are not to be committed; therefore, when one God is worshipped, and man does not commit evils, a conjunction takes place ; for in proportion as man desists from evils, that is, does the work of repentance, in the same proportion he is accepted of God, and does good from him. A. R. 490. God continually operates, that man may receive the things which are in his table, but if man does not do the things which are in his table, he does not receive with acknowledgment of heart the things which are in God's table, and if he does not receive them, he is not conjoined. Wherefore, the two tables are conjoined that they may be one, and are called the tables of the covenant, and a covenant s. conjunction. D. P. 326. See Decalogue.
TABOR and HERMON (Ps. lxxxix. 13) s. those who are in divine good and in divine truth. A. E. 298.
TABRETS and HARPS (Isa. xxx. 32) s. the delights of the affection of truth. A. E. 727.
TACHES, or CLASPS OF GOLD, den. the faculty of being conjoined by good; of brass, den. by external good. 9624.
TACIT PROVIDENCE. The Lord leads man by his affections, and binds him to good by a t. p., that he may be in freedom. 4364. The invisible action of providence ill. 5508.
TAIL. By t. is s. the ultimate of the head, because the brain through the back-bone is continued to the t., wherefore, the head and t. make one, as the first and last; when, therefore, by head is s. faith alone, justifying and saving, by t. is s. the sum of all the confirmations of it, which are from the Word, and are, therefore, truths of the Word falsified ; every one who, from his own intelligence, assumes a principle of religion, and establishes it as the head, also assumes confirmations or proofs from the Word, and makes them the t., thus does he stupefy others, and so hurts them; wherefore, it is said in Rev. ix., "that they had tails like scorpions," and presently after, that " there were stings in their tails, and that their power was to hurt men; " for by scorpion is s. a power of persuasion, stupefying the understanding, inasmuch as by t. is s. the ultimate, and as the ultimate is the complex or aggregate of all, therefore, Jehovah said to Moses, " take the serpent by the t., and he took it, and it became a rod." (Exod. iv. 3, 4.) And, therefore, it was commanded, " that they should take off the t. entire, near the backbone, and sacrifice it, together with the fat that was upon the entrails, kidneys, intestines, and liver." (Lev. iii. 0, 10, 11; viii. 25; ix. 16; Exod. xxix. 22.) A. R. 438. Tails s. scientific sensual principles, because the tails of animals are continuations of the dorsal spine, which is called the medulla spinalis, and this is the continent of the cerebrum, which s. intelligence and wisdom, the ultimates or extremes, whereof are scientific sensual principles. A. E. 559.
TAKE, to, A WOMAN (Gen. xxxviii. 9) s. to be associated and conjoined. 3688.
TAKE, to, GREAT POWER. (Rev. xi. 17.) Thou hast taken to thee thy g. p. s. divine omnipotence, which is, and was his from eternity. A. R. 523.
TAKE, to, AWAY SINS. By the taking a. s. is s. the same thing as by redeeming man, and saving him : for the Lord came into the world, that man might be saved, since without his coming, no mortal could have been reformed and regenerated, consequently, no mortal could have been saved ; but this became possible after that the Lord had taken away all the power of the devil, that is, of hell, and had glorified his humanity, that is, united it to the divinity of the Father. L. 17.
TAKEN UP INTO A MOUNTAIN, to be (Rev. xxi. 10), s. to be taken up into the third heaven, because it is said " in the spirit," and he who is in the spirit, as to his mind and its vision, is in the spiritual world, and there the angels of the third heaven dwell upon mountains. This elevation is effected in a moment, because it is done by a change in the state of mind. A. R. 896.
TAKEN and LEFT. (Matt. xxiv. 40, 41.) By those who are t. are s. they who find and receive truths, and by those who are l. are s. they who neither inquire after nor receive them, because they are in falses. A. R.794.
TALE of the BRICKS, etc. (Exod. v. 8.) " And the t, of the b. which they made yesterday, the day before yesterday, ye shall put upon them," s. that things fictitious and false were to be injected in the same abundance as in the former state ; for t. den. abundance, in the present case, the same abundance; and b. s. things fictitious and false, and yesterday the day before yesterday s. a former state : and to put upon them s. to inject,'because it is pred. of things fictitious and false. 7116.
TALENTS den. good and truth from the Lord received as remains. 5291.
TALENT WEIGHT. (Rev. xvi. 21.) Great hail, the weight of a t., s. direful and atrocious falses, whereby all truth and good in the Word, and, consequently, in the church, is destroyed. The reason why it is said to be of the weight of a t. is, because a t. was the largest weight of silver, and likewise of gold, and by silver is s. truth, and by gold, good, and, in an opp. sense, falsity and evil. A. R. 711. T. (Matt. xxv.) s. the knowledges of truth and good. A. E. 193.
TAPESTRY den. truths in the ultimate heavens. 9743.
TAR and PITCH (Exod. ii. 3) s. good mixed with evils and falses, for t. s. good mixed with evils, and p. s. good mixed with falses ; these s. are grounded in this circumstance, that t. and p. are in themselves fiery, and by what is fiery in the Word, is s. good, and, in the opp. sense, evil; but whereas they are sulphurous and also black, they s. evil and the false. 6724.
TARES (Matt. xiii. 30) s. evil and false principles. 3941.
TAKES, WHEAT, etc. (Matt. xiii. 27-30, 37-42.) The t. are those that are inwardly evil; the w., those that are inwardly good; the gathering them together, and the binding them in bundles to burn, is the last judgment. L. J. 70.
TARRY, to (Gen. xxvii. 44), s. nearly the same as to dwell; but to t. is pred. of the life of truth with good, and to dwell is pred. of the life of good with truth. 3613. To t. (Gen. xxxii. 4) s. to imbibe. 4243. The Lord said to John, that he should t. till he came (John xxi. 22, 23), because John rep. the good of life, and this day is the coming of the Lord, when the good of life is now taught by the Lord, for those who are to be of his new church, which is the New Jerusalem. A. It. 17.
TARSHISH (Isa. lxx. 9) s. the natural man, as to the knowledges of good. A. E. 400. T. (Dan. x. 5) s. the good of charity and faith, for T. is a sparkling precious stone. 6135. Gold of T. s. scientific good. 9881.
TARSHISH and UPHAZ. (Jer. x. 9.) Silver from T. s. the truth of the Word in its literal sense, and gold from U., the good of the Word in that sense. A. E. 585.
TARSHISH, PUL, LUD, TUBAL, and JAVAN (Isa. lxvi. 19), s. kinds of external worship. 1158.
TARTARY. Des. of the Word in T. A. R. 11.
TASK-MASTERS den. falses by which men are bound to servitude. 6659.
TASTE. Inasmuch as food and nourishment cor. to spiritual food and nourishment, it is from this ground, that the t. cor. to the perception and the affection thereof. Inasmuch as the t. cor. to perception and to the affection of knowing, of understanding, and of growing wise, and the life of man is in that affection, therefore it is not permitted to any spirit, or to any angel, to flow into man's t., for this would be to flow into the life which is proper to him. There are, nevertheless, vagabond spirits of the infernal crew peculiarly pernicious, who, in consequence of having been habituated in the life of the body, to enter into man's affections with a view to his hurt, retain also that lust in the other life, and by every method study to enter into the t. with man, into which, when they have entered, they possess his interiors, namely, the life of his thoughts and affections, for they cor., and the things which cor. act in unity; several at this day are possessed by those spirits. 4793. A spirit, or man after death, has all the sensations which he had while he lived in the world . . . but not the t., but instead thereof, something analogous which is adjoined to the smell. The reason why he has not t. is, lest he should enter into the t. of man, and thus possess his interiors; also, lest that sense should turn him away from the desire of knowing and of growing wise, thus from spiritual appetite. 4794. See Spirits.
TEACH, to, and SEDUCE. (Rev. ii. 20.) To t. is pred. of truths and falsities; and to s., of goods and evils. A. E. 160.
TEACHERS s. doctrine, or the doctrine of truth, and, in the supreme sense, divine truth. A. E. 600.
TEAR, a, s. grief on account of there being no understanding of truth, and, therefore, on account of the false. A. E. 484.
TEBAH, GAHAM, THAASH, and MAACAH (Gen xxii. 24), s. the various religious principles and kinds of worship der. from the Gentiles, who are in idolatrous worship, but principled in good, s. by Rumah. 2809.
TEETH s. the ultimates of the life of the natural man, which are called sensuals, of which there are two kinds, one of the will, and the other of the understanding; but the sensuals of the understanding are s. by t That t. s. the ultimates of man's life, which are called sensuals, which when separated from the interiors of the mind, are in mere falses, and offer violence to truths and destroy them, may appear from many passages. Since sensual men do not see any truth in its own light, but enter into reasoning and altercations about everything, whether it be so or not, and as these altercations in the hells, are heard out of them as the gnashing of t., which, viewed in themselves, are collisions of falsity and truth, it is plain what is s. by the gnashing of t. (Matt. viii. 12, and other places); and also in some measure what by gnashing with the t. (Ps. xxxvii. 12; cxii. 10 ; Micah iii. 5; Lam. ii. 16). A. R. 435. T. (Gen. xlix. 12), in the genuine sense, s. the natural principle ; for the things appertaining to man, which are hard, as t., bones, and cartilages, cor. to the truths and goods which are of the lowest natural principle. 6380.
TEETH WHITER THAN MILK (Gen. xlix. 12) s. the celestial spiritual principle pertaining to the Lord's natural principle. 2184.
TEETH of BEASTS, and POISON of SERPENTS of the DUST. (Deut, xxxii. 24.) T. of b. s, the sensual principle as to the lusts of evil; and the p. of s. of the d. s. falsities thence der., which by the fallacies of the sensual principle of man, maliciously or craftily pervert truths. A. E. 650. Hypocrites, when it is allowed them to flow in into the parts of the body, to which they cor., from the opp. principle, inject severe and intolerable pain into the teeth, gums, etc. 5720.
TEETH SET ON EDGE s. appropriation of false from evil. A. E. 556.
TELL, to, s. to apperceive, for in the spiritual world, or in heaven, they have no need to t. what they think, there being a communication of all thoughts: wherefore, to t., in the spiritual sense, s. to apperceive. 5601.
TEMA rep. things of the spiritual church among the Gentiles. 3268.
TEMAN, the inhabitants of (Jer. xlix. 20), s. the evils and falses opposed to the Lord's celestial kingdom. A. E. 400.
TEMAN and PARAN. (Hab. iii. 2-4.) T. has respect to celestial love, and Mount P. to spiritual love. 2714.
TEMPEST and WHIRLWIND. Influx in the inferior parts of the spiritual world is like a t. and w. A. E. 418.
TEMPLE rep. heaven and the church ; the sacred place where the ark was, rep. the inmost, or third heaven, and the church among those who are in the inmost principle, which is called the celestial church. The t. without the sacred place rep. the middle, or second heaven, also the church with those who are in similar principles, which is called the internal spiritual church. The inner court rep. the ultimate or first heaven, also the church with those who are in ultimates, which is called the internal natural church, but the outer court rep. entrance into heaven. A. E. 630. T. s. the Lord's divine humanity with respect to divine truth. A. R. 882. T. s. the superior heavens. A. E. 630. T. (Luke xxi. 5-7) s. the church at this day, in which there is no truth left remaining, and which consequently, is at an end. A. R. 191. T. (Rev, xv. 8) s. divine truth, or the Word in the natural sense, in light and potency from the divine truth in the spiritual sense. A. E. 955. By " I saw no t. in it " (Rev. xxi. 22), is not meant, that in the new church, which is New Jerusalem, there will not be t., but that in it, there will not be an external separated from what is internal; the reason is, because by a t. is s. the church as to worship, and, in the supreme sense, the Lord himself as to the divine humanity, who is to be worshipped; and since the all of the church is from the Lord, therefore it is said, " for the Lord God Omnipotent and the Lamb is the t. thereof," by which is s. the Lord in his divine humanity. A. R. 918. See Court, Vail of theTemple.
TEMPLE of his BODY (John ii. 21) s. the divine truth from the divine good. 6135.
TEMPLE of GOD. ("Rev. xi. 19.) By the t. of G., is s. the Lord in his divine humanity in the heaven of angels, because it is called the t. of G. in heaven. A. R. 529.
TEMPLE of JEHOVAH. The interior heavens are the t. of J. 9741.
TEMPLE of the TABERNACLE of the TESTIMONY, (Rev. xv. 5.) By " I looked, and behold the t. of the t. of the t. in heaven was opened," is s. that the inmost of heaven was seen, where the Lord is, in his holiness, in the Word, and in the law, or decalogue. A. R. 669.
TEMPORARY. Nothing can proceed from man but what is t., and nothing from the Lord but what is eternal. D. P. 219.
TEMPTATION is a combat between good and evil, therefore each strives for the dominion, that is, whether the spiritual man shall rule over the natural man, and thus, whether good shall have the dominion over evil, or whether, on the contrary, the natural man shall prevail against the spiritual man ; consequently, the contest is, whether the Lord shall have the dominion over man, or whether hell shall have the dominion. N. J. D. 199. Whosoever has gained any degree of spiritual life, undergoes t. When a t. is finished the soul is in a state of fluctuation between truth and falsehood, but afterwards truth shines with brightness, and brings with it serenity and gladness. N. J. D. 197. In a state of t. man is near to hell. N. J. D. 197. A. C. 8131. All elevation in a state of t. is effected by divine truth. 8170. T. appertaining to man are spiritual combats between evil and good spirits, which combats are from those things and concerning those things which man had done and thought which are in his memory. 81-51. T. are generally carried on to a state of desperation, which is their period and conclusion. N. J. D. 107. A. C. 1787. In t. man is in equilibrium between two opp. powers, one from the Lord in his inner man, and the other from hell in his outer man. N. J. D. 197. A. C. 8168. Infants undergo t. in another world, whereby they are taught to resist evils. N. J. D. 197. A. C. 2294. There are several kinds of t., which in general are celestial, spiritual, and natural, and which ought not in the least to be confounded; celestial t. cannot exist but with those who are in love towards the Lord; spiritual with those who are in charity towards their neighbor; natural t. are altogether distinct from those, and are not t., but only anxieties arising from the assault of their natural loves, being excited by misfortunes, diseases, and a bad temperament of the blood and fluids of the body. In the case of those who are in love towards the Lord; whatever assaults this love produces an inmost torture, which is celestial t.; in the case of those who are in love towards their neighbor, or charity, whatever assaults this love produces torment of conscience, and this is spiritual t.; but in the case of those who are natural, what they mostly call t., and pangs of conscience, are not t., but only anxieties arising from the assault of their loves, as when they foresee and are sensible of the loss of honor, the goods of the world, reputation, pleasure, bodily life, and the like; yet these troubles are wont to be productive of some good. Moreover t. are also experienced by those who are in natural charity; thus they are experienced by all kinds of heretics, gentiles, and idolaters, arising from those things which assault the life of their faith, which they hold dear; but these straitnesses bear some faint resemblance to spiritual t. 847. They who are in good of life, according to their religion, in which there are not genuine truths, in another life, undergo t., by which their falses are shaken off, and genuine truths implanted in their stead. A. E. 452. All persons are tempted who have a conscience of right and wrong, that is, who are under the influence of spiritual love; but they endure most grievous t. who have a perception of right and wrong, that is, who are under the influence of celestial love. 1688, 8693. N. J. D. 197. Dead men, or such as have no faith and love towards the Lord or charity towards their neighbor, are not admitted into t., because they would fall under them. Therefore very few people are at this day admitted into spiritual t. 270. The Lord tempts no man, but on the contrary labors for his deliverance, and the introduction of good. 2768. If man fall in t. his state after it becomes worse than his state before it, inasmuch as evil has thereby acquired power over good and the false over truth. N. J. D. 192. Hour of t. (Rev. iii. 10) s. the time of the last judgment. A. R.186. There are spiritual t. and there are natural t.; spiritual t. are of the internal man, but natural are of the external man ; spiritual t. sometimes exist without natural t., sometimes with them. Natural t. are, when a man suffers as to the body, as to honors, as to wealth, in a word as to natural life, as is the case in diseases, misfortunes, persecutions, punishments, not grounded in justice, and the like; the anxieties which then exist, are what are meant by natural t.; but these t. do not at all affect his spiritual life, neither can they be called t., but griefs; for they exist from the hurt of the natural life, which is of self-love and the love of the world; the wicked are sometimes the subjects of these griefs, who grieve and are tormented the more in proportion as they love themselves and the world more, and thus der. life thence; but spiritual t. are of the internal man, and assault his spiritual life; the anxieties then are not on account of any loss of natural life; but on account of the loss of faith and charity, and consequently, of salvation; these t. are frequently induced by natural t., for when man is in these latter, namely, in disease, grief, the loss of wealth or honor, and the like; if then a thought occurs concerning the Lord's aid, concerning his providence, concerning the state of the evil, that they glory and exult, when the good suffer and undergo various griefs and various losses, in such case spiritual t. is conjoined to natural t. 8164.
TEMPTATIONS OF THE LORD. The L. could in no wise be tempted whilst he was in the essential divine, for the divine is infinitely above all t., but he could be tempted as to the human: this is the reason that, when he underwent the most grievous and inmost t., he adjoined to himself the former human, viz., its rational and natural, and afterwards separated himself from them. But still retained such a principle, that he could thereby be tempted. 2705. His last t. and victory were in the garden of Gethsemane, and upon the cross, whereby he completely subdued all the powers of hell, and made his humanity divine. N. J. D. 201. See Truth Divine.
TEN s. all things, because heaven in whole and in part, refers to man, and thence is called the grand man; all the powers of the life of that grand man, or heaven, terminate in two hands and two feet, and the hands as also the feet terminate in t. fingers or toes; wherefore all things of man as to power and support, are ultimately collated into ten fingers, and ultirnates in the Word s. all things. A. E. 675. T. s. what is full, also much and many, also every thing and all; hence the things which were written on the tables of the decalogue by Jehovah, are called the t. commandments, which s. all truths, for they include them. And because t. s. all and every thing, therefore the Lord compared the kingdom of heaven to t. virgins. Likewise in the parable, he said of the nobleman, that he gave his servants t. talents to trade with. Many is also s. by the t. horns of the beast which came up out of the sea (Dan. viii. 7), and by the t. horns, and the t. crowns upon the horns of the beast which came up out of the sea (Rev. xxiii. 1), also by the t. horns of the scarlet-colored beast, upon which the woman sat. (Rev. xvii. 3, 7,12.) From the s. of the number t. as den. what is full, much, and all, it maybe seen why it was ordained, that a tenth part of all the fruits of the earth, should be given to Jehovah, and from Jehovah to Aaron and the Levites (Num. xviii. 24, 28; Deut. xiv. 22), also, why Abram gave Melchisedek tithes of all (Gen. xiv. 18,19), for by this was s., that all they had was from Jehovah, and sanctified. (See Mal. iii. 10.) A.R. 101. That the decalogue consisted of t. precepts or t. words, and that Jehovah wrote them on tables (Deut. x. 4), s. remains, and their being written by the hand of Jehovah s. that remains are of the Lord alone; their being in the internal man was rep. by tables. 576.

TENDONS, the, of the grand man are composed of those whom the gospel has not reached. D. P. 254, 326.
TENT is used in the Word to s. the celestial and holy things of love, because in old time they performed holy worship in their t., but when they began to profane t. by profane worship, then the tabernacle was built, and afterwards the temple; wherefore what the tabernacle, and afterwards the temple s., that also was s. by t.; a holy man was therefore called a t., and a tabernacle, and also a temple of the Lord. In a supreme sense, the Lord as to his human essense, is a t., a tabernacle, and a temple: hence every celestial man is so called, and hence every thing celestial and holy has acquired those names: and whereas the most ancient church was beloved of the Lord more than the succeeding churches, and men lived among themselves at that time apart, or in their own families, and celebrated holy worship in their t.; therefore t. were accounted more holy than the temple, which was profaned; and for this reason the feast of tabernacles was instituted, when they gathered in the produce of the earth, as a remembrance of those former holy times, and it was ordained, that at this feast they should dwell in tabernacles, like the most ancient people. (Lev. xxiii. 39-44; Deut. xvi. 13; Hosea xii. 9.) 414. The t. (Exod. xxvi. 14) was rep. of the three heavens, thus of the celestial and spiritual things of the Lord's kingdom. 3540. T., in an opp. sense, s. worship which is not holy, or the worship of him who separates himself from the internal. 1566. See Curtains.

TERAH (Gen. xi. 24) s. idolatrous worship. 1353. See Idolatry.
TERAPHIM (Gen. xxx.) were idols which were applied to when they consulted or inquired of God, and because the answers which they received were to them truths divine, therefore truths are s. by them. And whereas such things were s. by t., they were also with some, although prohibited, as with Micah in the book of Judges xvii. 5; xviii. 14, 24, also with Michal, David's wife, (See 1 Sam. xix. 14,16.) That nevertheless they were idols which were prohibited, is evident from 1 Sam. xv. 23; 2 Kings xxiii. 24; Ezek. xxi. 26. 4111.
TERROR (Jer. vi. 25) s. spiritual death. A. E. 721.
TERROR and DREAD. Terror is pred. of those who are in evils, and dread, of those who are in falses. 9331.
TERROR of GOD den. protection, because it prevents evil spirits from approaching. 4555.
TEST, a, is given by which every one may ascertain his real quality; whether evil or good. 1680.
TESTAMENT. The blood of the New T., or new covenant, s. the conjunction of the Lord with the church by divine truth. A. E. 960. See New Testament, Old Testament, Covenant.
TESTICLES cor. to conjugial love, and to its opp. Exp. 5060.
TESTIMONY in the ARK s. the Lord. 9455.
TESTIMONY den. good from which truth is der., and truth which is from good. 4197. T. is divine truth. A.R. 555. T. (Ps. cxxxii. 12) s. the good of life according to the truths of doctrine. A. E. 392.
TESTIMONIES, LAWS, PRECEPTS, COMMANDS, STATUTES and JUDGMENTS, are mentioned together in many parts of the Word, and by t. and c. are s. those things which teach life: by l. and p., those things which teach doctrine, and by s. and j., those things which teach external rites. A. E. 392.
TEXT. A sentence of Scripture. See Word.
THAHASH den. religious principles grounded in idolatrous worship, but in good. 2868.
THAMAR (Gen. xxxviii.) s. a church rep. of things spiritual and celestial, which was to be established amongst the posterity of Judah. The internal of the church here is T., and the external Judah was the three sons by the Canaanitish woman. 4831.
THANKS being ascribed to the Lord, s. the all of worship. A. R. 249. By giving t. (Rev. xi. 17), is s. an acknowledgment and glorification of the Lord. A. R. 522.
THANKSGIVING and BLESSING. (Rev. viii.) T. is pred. of good, and b., of truth. A. E. 466. T. and honor (Rev. vii.) are pred. of the reception of divine good. A. E. 467.
THEATRE of the UNIVERSE. Universal nature is des. as rep. of the celestial and spiritual things of the Lord's kingdom. 1807.
THEFT s. the evil of merit, which is, when man attributes good to himself, and imagines that it is from himself, and therefore is willing to merit salvation; this evil it is, which, in the internal sense, is s. by t. See Murders, Incantations, etc.
THEMA. The inhabitants of the land of T., den. those who are in simple good, such as the well-disposed gentiles are principled in. 3208.
THEOLOGY. The science which treats of the attributes of God, and his relations to man. See Doctrines.
THICK DARKNESS s. hatred, instead of charity. 1860.
THICKET den. the scientific natural. To be caught in a t. is to stick in scientifics. 2831.
THICKETS (Jer. iv. 7) s. scientifics, because they are respectively such, especially when under the influence of the lusts of self-love and the love of the world, and the principles of the false. 2831.
THIEF. (Rev. iii. 3.) It is said that the Lord will come like a t., because man who is in dead worship, is deprived of the external good of worship; for there is something of good in dead worship, because the worshippers think of God, and of eternal life ; but still good without its truths, is not good, but meritorious or hypocritical, evils and falses taking it away like a t.; this is done successively in the world, and after death fully, man in the mean time not knowing when and how. A. R. 164.
THIEVES of the SONS ISRAEL (Deut. xxv. 7) s. those who acquire to themselves the truths of the church, not for the end of living according to them, and thereby of teaching them from the heart, but of making gain thereby themselves: that such a t. is damned, is s. by its being commanded that he shall be slain. 5886. See Den of Thieves.
THIGH. (Rev. xix. 16.) By the Lord's t. is s. the Word as to its divine good ; the t. and loins s. conjugial love, and inasmuch as this is the fundamental love of all loves, therefore, the t. and loins s. the good of love : therefore when t. is mentioned in speaking of the Lord, it s. himself as to the good of love, in the present instance, it also s. the Word as to the same. A. R. 830.
THIGH FALLING, the (Num. v. 21, 27), s. the evil of conjugial love, that is, adultery. 3021. To "uncover the thigh passing over the rivers" (Isa. xlvii. 2), s. to adulterate goods by reasoning. A. E. 1182. See Hollow of the Thigh.
THIGHS and LOINS (Judg. viii. 30) s. those things which are of conjugial love, also those things which are of love and charity, by reason that conjugial love is fundamental of all love, for they are from the same origin, namely, from the celestial marriage, which is that of good and truth. T. also s. the good of celestial love and the good of spiritual love. By t. and l., therefore, is s. conjugial love principally, and thence all genuine love; but, in an opp. sense, also are s. the contrary loves, namely, self-love and the love of the world. 3021.
THIMNATH (Gen. xxxviii. 12) s. a state of consulting for the church. 4855.
THIN (Gen. xli. G) den. what is of no use, for thin is opp. to full, and that is said to be full, in which there is use, or what is the same thing in which there is good, for all good is of use. Wherefore that is thin which is of no use. 5214. T. in flesh den. not of charity. 5204.
THINK, to, freely from his own proper affection, is the very life of man, and is himself. H. and H. 502. To t. spiritually is to t. without time and space, and to t. naturally, is to t. with time and space. C. S. L. 328.
THINKING FACULTY. In proportion as the t. f. in man is elevated above sensual things, so far he is a man ; but no one is capable of such elevation of thought, so as to discover the truths of the church, unless he acknowledge God, and live according to his commandments; for God elevates and illustrates. U. T. 402.
THIRD. Three den. what is full; a third what is not full. 2788.
THIRD DAY s. the end of a state of preparation for reception, and thus an end of purification. (See Exod. xix. 16.) 8811. T. d. s. the same as the seventh d. (See Hosea vi. 2, 8.) 93. T. d. (Gen. xxii. 4) s. what was complete and a beginning of sanctification. For d. in the Word s. state as does also year, and in general all times, as hour, day, week, month, year, age, and likewise morning, midday, evening, night; and spring, summer, autumn, winter; to which when t. is added, it s. the end of that state, and at the same time the beginning of the following state. In the internal sense of the Word, three days and the t. d. s. the same thing. That the Lord rose again on the t. d. is well known; it was on this account also that the Lord distinguished the times of his life into three, as in Luke xiii. 32. The Lord also endured the last temptation, which was that of the cross, on the t. hour of the d. (Mark xv. 25.) Hence, and especially from the Lord's resurrection on the t. d., the number three was rep. and s. But t. part s. somewhat not as yet full, whereas t. and threefold s. what is complete, and this in respect to evil, as applied to the evil, and in respect to good as applied to the good. 2788. A t. part implies the same as three, and also a t. part of a t. part. 904. T. part (Apoc. xii. 4) s. somewhat not as yet full.
THIRDS and FOURTHS. (Exod. xxiv. 7.) T. are pred. of truths and falses; and f. of goods and evils. (See Exod. xx. 5.) 10.624.
THIRST, to. (John xix. 28.) The reason why the Lord said, I t., was because he desired a new church, which should acknowledge him ; for to t., in a spiritual sense, s. to desire, and is pred. of the truths of the church. A. E. 83. By t. and thirsting is also s. to perish for want of truths. A. R. 956. See Hunger and Thirst.
THIRTEEN, as between twelve and fourteen, den. the intermediate state. 1668. As the compound of ten and three den. remains. 2108.
THIRTEEN YEARS (Gen. xvi. 26) s. a state of holy remains. "2109.
THIRTEENTH YEAR (Gen. xiv.) s. the beginning of the Lord's temptations in childhood. 1668.
THIRTY, in the WORD, s. somewhat of combat, and it also s. what is full of remains; the reason why it has this twofold s. is, because it is compounded of five and six multiplied into each other, and also of three and ten multiplied likewise into each other; from five multiplied into six, it s. somewhat of combat, because five s. somewhat, and six combat; but from three multiplied into ten, it s. what is full of remains, because three s. what is full, and ten remains; and a compound number involves the like with a simple number whereof it is compounded. And whereas man cannot be regenerated, that is, be admitted into spiritual combats whereby regeneration is effected, until he has received remains to the full, therefore it was ordained, that the Levites should not do work in the tent of the assembly until they had completed t. years; their work or function is also called warfare. (See Num. iv. 3, 23, 30.) The like is involved in what is said of David. (2 Sam. v. 4.) From these considerations, it is now evident, why the Lord did not manifest himself until he was of t. years (Luke iii. 23), for he was then in the fulness of remains; and that the priests the Levites, entered upon their functions when they were t. years old, and because David was to rep. the Lord as to the royalty, therefore neither did he begin to reign until he was of that age. 5335.
THISTLES den. the opp. of fruitfulness and blessing. 273. Thorns and t. den. cures, and vastation. 273.
THORAX. The spirits which appear near the t., are they who are in charity. 4403. Dreams are often introduced by spirits who belong to the province of the left t, 1978.
THORNS (Jer. xii. 13) s. the evils and falses of self-love and the love of the world. 3941.
THORNS and THISTLES (Gen. iii. 18) s. a curse and vastation, because cornfields and fruit trees s. things of an opp. nature, such as blessings and increase in multiplication ; that the t., the t., the brier, the bramble, and the nettle, have such a s. is plain from many passages in the Word. 273. T. and t. s. mere falsehood and evil. D. P. 313.
THORNS, BRIERS, BRAMBLES, and THISTLES, s. falses of evil, from their stings or prickles. A. 11. 439. See Briers and Thorns.
THOUGHT. The interior t. of man is altogether according to affection, or love. H. and H. 298. T. diffuses itself into the societies of spirits and of angels roundabout, and the faculty of understanding and perceiving, is according to the extension into those societies, that is, according to the influx thence, and in one idea of the t. there are things innumerable, and more so in one t. composed of ideas. 6599. It is not that which enters into the t,, but what enters into the will, that endangers the spiritual life of man, because he then appropriates it. 6308. The t. of man in its first origin is spiritual, and becomes natural in the external man by influx. 10.215. The t. of man, though silent, is audible to spirits and angels at the Lord's good pleasure. 6624. The t. of the angels in the superior heavens, when it descends, appears like flames of light, from which there is a vibration of splendor. 6615. Every man has exterior and interior t.; interior t. is in the light of heaven, and is called perception, and exterior t. is in the light of the world. A. R. 914. The t. of angels and also of man, is caused by variegations of the light of heaven. 4742.
THOUGHTS. There are t. from perception, t. from conscience, and t. from no conscience; t. from perception, have place only with the celestial, that is, with those who are in love to the Lord; (hisis the inmost ground oft. with man, and is with the celestial angels in heaven ; perception from tho Lord is that by which and from which their t. exists; to think contrary to perception is impossible; t. from conscience are inferior, and have place with the spiritual, that is, with those who are in the good of charity and faith, as to life, and as to doctrine ; to think contrary to conscience is to them also impossible, for this would be contrary to good and truth, which is dictated to them from the Lord by conscience. But t. from no conscience have place with those who do not suffer themselves to be inwardly ruled by good and truth, but by evil and the false, that is, not by the Lord, but by themselves. 2515. T. grounded in truths, in the spiritual world, when they are presented to tbo sight, appear as white clouds; and t. grounded in false principles as black clouds. D. L. W. 147. All t, as to the most minute particulars thereof, are made public in another life, before spirits and angels. 2748. The t. of the angels of the supreme, or third heaven, are t. of ends, and the t. of the angels of the middle or second heaven, are t. of causes, and the t. of the angels of the lowest or first heaven, are t. of effects. It is to be observed, that it is one thing to think from ends, and another of ends; also that it is one thing to think from causes, and another of causes; as also that it is one thing to think from effects, and another of effects; the angels of the lower heavens think of causes and of ends, but the angels of the higher heavens from causes, and from ends, and to think from these is of superior wisdom, but to think of those is of inferior wisdom. To think from ends is of wisdom, from causes is of intelligence, and from effects is of science. D. L. W. 202.
THOUSAND, a, in the Word. s. much and innumerable, and when it is pred. of the Lord, it s. what is infinite. A t. times, as in Ueut. i. 11, den. innumerable times, as in common discourse, in which, speaking of many, it is customary to express it by a t., as when you would s. that a thing has been said a t. times, or done in a t. ways. Inasmuch as a t. in calculation is a definite number, it appears in the prophetical parts of the Word, especially when they are connected historically, as if a t. s. a t., when, nevertheless, it s. many or innumerable, without any determinate number; for the historicals of the Word are of such a nature, that they determine the ideas to those s. of expressions which are nearest and most proper to them, as in the case of names also, when yet by numbers, as well as by names, are s. things; hence it is, that some also conjecture, that by t. years in the Revelation (chap. xx. 2-7), are s. a t. years, or a t. times, by reason that things of a prophetic nature are there des. historically, when yet by a t. years, as there applied, nothing is s. but an indeterminate large quantity, and also in other passages, the infinity of time or eternity. 2575. T. (Ps. xc. 4) s. what is eternal, which is the infinite of time. 2575.
THOUSAND SIX HUNDRED, a (Rev. xiv. 20), s. evils in the whole complex, for by one t. s. h. the same is s. as by sixteen, and by sixteen, the same as by four, because sixteen is the product of four multiplied by itself, and four is pred. of good, and of the conjunction of good with truth, consequently, in an opp. sense, it is pred. of evil, and the conjunction of evil with the false. A. R. 654.
THREATS. No one is reformed by t. because they force. D. P. 129.
THREE s. what is full from beginning to end. 5708.
THREE and SEVEN are sacred and inviolable, inasmuch as they are each pred. of the last judgment, which is to happen on the third or seventh day. 900.
THREE HUNDRED s. what is full, because the number arises from t. and from a h. by multiplication; and t. s. what is full, and a h. s. what is full; for what the compound numbers s. is manifest from the simple numbers of which they are compounded. 5955. T. h. (Gen. vi. 15) s. remains. 616.
THREE MEN WHO APPEARED to ABRAHAM (Gen. xviii. 2) s. the essential divine, the divine human, and the holy proceeding. 2140, 2156.
THREE PARTS. To be divided into t. p. s. to be totally destroyed. A.R. 712.
THREE YEARS OLD (Gen. xv. 9) implies all things appertaining to the church as to times and states, which appears from the s. of t. in the Word, as den. a full or plenary time of the church from its origin to its end, consequently, every state thereof; the last state of the church is therefore s. by the third day, and by the third week, and by the third month, and by the third year, and by the third age, which are the same thing; as the state of the church is s. by the number t., so also is the state of every individual who is a church, nay, so also is the state of every thing which is of the church. 1825.
THREEFOLD PRINCIPLE. In every thing of which any thing can be pred. there is a t. p., which is called end, cause, and effect, and these three are with respect to each other according to the degrees of altitude. D. L. W. 209.
THRESH, to (Micah iv. 13), s. to dissipate evils amongst those who are of the church. A. E. 16.
THRESHING-FLOOR. (Gen. l. 10.) T.-f. s. where the good of truth is, for in a t.-f. there is corn, and by corn is s. the good which is der. from truth, and also the truth of good. 6537.
THROAT and TONGUE. (Ps. v. 10.) The t., an open sepulchre, is pred. of evil, the t. speaking smooth things, of the false. 3527.
THRONE, when concerning the Lord, s., in general, the whole heaven, specifically, the spiritual heaven, and abstractedly, divine truth proceeding, and, consequently, all things of heaven and the church. A. E. 289. T. (Rev. i. 4) s. the universal heaven. A. R. 14. T. s. heaven, and also judgment. The t. built by Solomon, of which mention is made (1 Kings x. 18, 19, 20), s. both royalty and judgment, because kings, when they executed judgment, sat upon thrones. T. (Rev. iv. 2) s. a representation of judgment, because the things which John saw were visions which rep.; they were seen as he has des. them, but they were forms rep. of things to come, as may appear from what follows, as that there were seen animals, a dragon, a beast, a temple, tabernacle, ark, and many other things; similar were the things seen by the prophets. A. R. 229. T. (Rev. xii. 5) s. the angelic heaven. A. R. 545. T. (Rev. xiii. 2) s. the church as to doctrine. A. E. 783.
THRONE OF THE BEAST (Rev. xvi. 10) s. where faith alone reigns; t. s. kingdom, and the b., faith alone. T. also s. the government of falsity and evil in the following passages; namely, Rev. ii. 13; xiii. 2; Dan. vii. 9; Hag. ii. 22; Isa. xiv. 13. A. R. 694.
THRONE OF DAVID (Isa, ix. 6) s. the Lord's spiritual kingdom. A. E. 946.
THRUST THROUGH, to be, in the Word, is pred. of the extinction of goods and truths; hence in the rep. church, they who touched one who was t.t., were unclean: and on this account inquisition and expiation was made by a heifer. (Deut. xxi. 1-8.) That such laws were enacted, because by one that is t.t. is s. the perversion, destruction, and profanation of the truth of the church, by what is false and evil, is manifest from singular the things contained therein in the internal sense. 4503.
THUMB and the GREAT TOE (Exod. xxix. 20) s. the fulness of the intelligence, and power of truth from good in the internal or spiritual, and in the external or natural man. A. E. 298.
THUMMIM and URIM. The word Urim den. lucent fire, and T. brightness thence. In Hebrew language, T. den. integrity. 9905.
THUNDER. What the Lord speaks through the heaven, when it descends into the lower spheres is heard as t., and as he speaks through the whole heaven at once and thus fully, they are called seven t. (Rev. x.) ; for by seven are s. all, all things, anil the whole. Wherefore also by t. is s. instruction and perception of truth, and in this instance, the revealing and manifestation thereof. That a voice from heaven is heard as t., when it proceeds from the Lord, is evident from these passages; John. xii. 28, 29, 20; Job. xxxvii. 4, 5; 2 Sam. xxii. 14; Rev. xiv. 2; Ps. lxxxi. 8. A. R. 472. Great t. (Rev. xiv. 2) s. the divine good of divine love. A. R, 615.
THYATIRA (Rev. ii.) s. those who are in faith originating in charity, and thence in good works ; and also those who are in faith separate from chanty, and thence in evil works. This is evident from what is written to the church in T., when understood in the spiritual sense. A. R. 124.
THYINE WOOD (Rev. xviii. 12) s. natural good, because wood in the Word, s. good, and stone truth, and t. w. der. its denomination from two, and two also s. good. A. R. 774.
THYMUS. There are certain well-disposed spirits, who think not by meditation, and hence they quickly, and, as it were, without premeditation, utter what occurs to the thought; they have interior perception, which is not rendered so visual by meditations and thoughts, as with others, for in the progress of life they have been instructed as from themselves, concerning the goodness of things, and not so concerning their truth. Such belong to the province of the gland called the t.; for the t. is a gland which is principally serviceable to infants, and in that age is soft; with such spirits also there is a soft infantile principle remaining, into which the perception of good flows in, from which perception truth in its common principle shines forth; these may be in great crowds, and yet not to be disturbed, as is also the case with that gland. 5172.
TIDAL s. goods. 1085. See Chedolaomer.
TIGERS rep. the infernal cupidities of self-love. T. C. R. 45. Des. of some internally like. 8622.
TILL THE GROUND FROM WHENCE HE WAS TAKEN, to (Gen. iii. 23), s. to become corporeal as he was before regeneration. 305. To t. the g. (Gen. iv. 12), s. to cultivate schism or heresy. 380. A tiller of the g. is one who is without charity, however he may be in faith separate from love, which is no faith. 345.
TIMBREL (Ps. lxxxi. 2) has respect to what is spiritual. 3969.
TIMBREL and HARP. (Ps. cxlix. 3.) The t. s. good, and the h. truth. 420. T. cor. to celestial truths. A. R. 276.
TIME. (Rev. x. 6.) There shall no longer be t., s. that there cannot be any state of the church, or any church, except one God be acknowledged, and that the Lord is that God. A. R. 476.
TIME, and TIMES, and HALF A TIME (Rev. xii. 14) s. to the end and beginning, thus during its increase from a few to many, until it grows to its appointed growth. By a t., and t., and h. a t., is s. the same here as by a thousand two hundred and sixty days (verso 6) ; the same is also s. by three days and a half (chap. xi. 9, 10), also by the three years and six months of famine (Luke iv. 25), and in Dan., by a stated time or stated times and a half, when they will make a consummation of dispersing the hands of the people of holiness. (Dan. xii. 7.) A. R. 562. In the divine idea, and thence in the spiritual sense, there is no time, but instead of time, state. A. R. 4. The reason why time appears to be something, is owing to the mind's reflecting on those things which are not objects of affection, or love, consequently, which are irksome. 3827.
TIME, SPACE, and PERSON. There are three things in general which perish from the sense of the letter of the Word, whilst the internal sense is coining forth, namely, what is oft., what is of s., and what is of p. 5253.
TIMES and SPACES in heaven do indeed appear like t. and s. in the world, but yet they do not really exist there, for which reason the angels cannot otherwise measure t. and s., which there are appearances, than by states, according to their progressions and changes. A. R. 947.
TIMIDITY, or FEAR. They who are in evil "and false are in f. 390. F. of God s. worship. 2826. F. is of two kinds, holy and not holy. 3718.
TIMNATH den. state of consultation as to the good of the church. 4855.
TIN (Ezek. xxii. 18) has respect to the things of the literal sense of the Word, or to the goods and truths of the natural man. A. E. 540 See Silver, Iron, Tin, and Lead.
TIRAS (Gen. x. 2) was one of those nations who were principled in external worship cor. with internal, and by which nations, in an internal sense, are s. so many several doctrinals, which were the same as rituals, which they observed as holy, as appears manifestly from the Word, where mention is made continually of those nations, for by them, wheresoever they occur, is s. external worship, sometimes external worship cor. with internal, sometimes what is opp. thereto. 1151.
TITHES (tenths) s. goods and truths which are stored up from the Lord, in man's interiors, which goods are called remains; when these are pred. of the Lord, they den. the divine goods and divine truths, which the Lord procured to himself by his own proper power. 3740. See Ten.
TITTLE, the least, in the Word, is rep. of heavenly things. 5147. See Jot and Tittle.
TODAY. We sometimes read in the Word this expression, even to this day, or t.-d., as in Gen. xix. 37, 38; xxii. 14 ; xxvi. 33 ; xxxii. 32 ; xxxv. 20; xlvii. 26 ; which expressions, in an historical sense, have respect to the time when Moses lived, but in an internal sense, by this day, and by t.-d., is s. the perpetuity and eternity of a state ; for day den. state, so likewise t.-d., which is the time present; that which has relation to time in the world, is eternal in heaven, and in order that this might be s., t.-d. is added, or to this day, although it appears to those who are in the historical sense, as if the expressions involved nothing besides; in like manner it is said in other places of the Word, as Josh. iv. 9; vi. 25; vii. 20 ; Judges i. 21, 26, and in other places; that t.-d. s. what is perpetual and eternal, may appear from David Ps. ii. 7; cxix. 89-91; so also in Jer. i. 5, 10,18 ; so in Moses, Deut. xxix. 9, 11,12, 14 ; to the same purpose see also Num. xxviii. 3, 23 ; Dan. viii. 13; xi. 31 ; xii. 11; Exod. xvi. 4, 19, 20, 23 ; John vi. 31, 32, 49, 50, 58; Matt. vi. 11 ; Luke xi. 3. 2838.
TOE. See Thumb and Great Toe.
TOGARMAH (Ezek. xxvii, 14) s. those who are in internal worship. A. E. 355.
TOKEN of a COVENANT (Gen. ix.-12) s. a mark of the Lord's presence in charity, suggesting thus a remembrance thereof in man. 1038. To give a t. (Gen. ix 12) s. to cause it to be. 1039.
TOMORROW s. to eternity. 3998.
TONES. It is worthy to be remarked, that angels and spirits, according to their differences with respect to good and truth, distinguish t, and this not only of singing and of instruments, but also in the words of speech, and admit only such t. as are in concord, so that there is an agreement of t., consequently, of instruments, with the nature and essence of good and truth. 420.
TONGS and SNUFF-DISHES (Exod. xxv. 38) s. purifiers and evacuators in the natural principle. 9572.
TONGUE, the, affords entrance to the lungs, and also to the stomach, thus it rep. a sort of courtyard to things spiritual and to things celestial: to things spiritual, as ministering to the lungs, and thence to the speech, and to things celestial, as ministering to the stomach, which supplies the blood of the heart with aliment; wherefore the t., in general, cor. to the affection of truth, or to those in the grand man who are in the affection of truth, and afterwards are in the affection of good from truth; they, therefore, who love the Word of the Lord, and thence desire the knowledges of truth and good, belong to that province; but with the difference, that there are some who belong to the t. itself, some to the larynx and the windpipe, some to the throat, likewise, some to the gums, and some also to the lips; for there is not the smallest thing appertaining to man, with which there is not cor. But some cor. to the interiors of the t. and of the lips, and some to the exteriors; the operation of those who receive only exterior truths with affection, but not interior, and yet do not reject the latter, flow not into the interiors of the t., but into the exteriors. 4791. T., as an organ, s. doctrine, but as speech, or language, it s. also religion. A. R. 282. T. s. perception of truth, with respect to speech, and the affection of good, with respect to taste. A. E. 455. T. (Luke xvi. 24) s. the thirst and cupidity of perverting the truths of the Word. A. E. 455. To gnaw the t, (Rev. xvi. 10) s. to detain the thought from hearing truths; that by gnawing the t. the above is s. cannot be confirmed from the Word, because the expression nowhere else occurs there; but when any one in the spiritual world utters truths of faith, the spirits, who cannot endure to hear truths, keep their t. between their teeth and likewise bite their lips, and moreover induce others to press their t. and lips with their teeth, and this in such a degree as to give pain; from which it is plain that by gnawing their t. for pain is s. that they could not endure truths. A. R. 696. To speak with new t. s. to confess the Lord and the truths of the church from him. A. E. 455.
TOOL. To form an idol with a graver's t. (Exod. xxxii. 4) den. from self-intelligence. 10.400.
TOOTH (Exod. xxi. 24) den. the exterior understanding, and hence natural truth. 9052. See Teeth.
TOPS of the MOUNTAINS APPEARING on the FIRST of the MONTH (Gen. viii. 5), s. the truths of faith, which then begin to be seen, as may appear from the s. of mountains, in that they are the goods of love and charity, these tops then begin to be seen, when man is regenerated, and gifted with conscience, and thereby with charity. The t. of the m. are the first dawnings of light which appear. 859.
TOPAZ (Exod. xxviii. 17) rep. the good of celestial love. 9865.
TOPHET and the VALLEY of HINNOM (Jer. viii. 32) den. hell. T., hell from behind, which is called the devil; and the v. of H., hell from before, which is called satan. A. E. 659.
TORCH of FIRE, a (Gen. xv. 17), s. the burning of cupidities. And its passing between the pieces s. that it divided those who were of the church from the Lord. 1861, 1862. A. E. 539.
TORMENT, to (Rev. ix. 5), s. to induce stupor, or to stupefy the understanding. A. R. 427. They who are in hell suffer t. in proportion as they receive the influx from heaven. U. T. 74. All t. in hell results from the love of self and of the world and from cupidities originating in those two loves. A. R. 636.
TORMENTED, to be. Every one in hell is t. by his love and its concupiscences, for the life of every one there is made up of them, and it is the life which is t, wherefore, there are degrees of torment there according to the degrees of the love of evil and thence of falsity. A. R. 864.
TORMENTS. Infernal t. are not stings of conscience, as some suppose, for they who are in hell have no conscience; such as have conscience are among the blessed. 965.
TORN (Gen. xxxi. 38) s. evil without its fault or (blame). 4171. T. is pred. of good, into which a false principle is insinuated, whence good is no longer alive. 4171.
TORN to PIECES. (Gen. xliv. 28.) To be t. to p. s. to perish by evils and falses. The reason why being t. in p. has this s. is, because in the spiritual world no other tearing to pieces has place but that of good by evils and falses; the case herein is like that of death and of the things appertaining to death, which, in the spiritual sense, do not s. natural death, but spiritual death, which is damnation, for there is no other death in the spiritual world ; in like manner, tearing to pieces, in the spiritual sense, does not s. tearing to pieces, such as is effected by wild beasts, but the tearing in pieces of good by evils and falses; the wild beasts, also, which tear in p., in the spiritual sense, s. the evils of lusts and the falses thence der., which also in the other life are rep. by wild beasts. 5828.
TORPOR. Spirits who have cared to live only in luxurious indolence, induce t. 1509.
TOUCH, the sense of, in general, cor. to the affection of good. 4404. To t. s. communication, translation, and reception. 10.130. By making to t. (Exod. iv. 25) s. to show, for by the t. it is shown. 7046. The sense proper to conjugial love is the sense of t. The love of knowing objects from the love of circumspection and self-preservation, is the sense of touching. C. S. L. 210. The innocence of parents and the innocence of infants meet each other by means of the t., especially of the hands, and thereby they join themselves together as by kisses. Communications of the mind are effected by this sense, because the hands are the ultimate principles of man, and his firsts are simultaneously in the ultimates, whereby also all things of the body and all things of the mind are kept together in an unsevered connection ; hence it is, that Jesus touched infants (Matt. xvii. 6 ; Mark x. 13, 16) ; and that he healed the sick by the t.; and that they were healed who touched him; hence also it is, that inaugurations into the priesthood are at this day effected by the laying on of hands. C. S. L. 396. See Hands.
TOWEL, a (John xiii. 4), s. divine truths. A. E. 951.
TOWER (Gen. xi. 4) s. the worship of self, which consists in a man's exalting himself above another, even so as to be worshipped ; wherefore self-love, which is haughtiness and pride, is called height, loftiness, and lifting up, and is described by all those things which are high. The reason why self-love in worship, or the worship of self is called a t. is, because a city s. doctrine, and formerly cities were fortified with towers in which were guards. Towers also were built in the boundaries of a country, wherefore they were called towers of the guards, or watchmen (2 Kings ix. 17 ; xvii. 9; xviii. 8), and watch-towers. (Isa. xxiii. 13.) When also, the church of the Lord is compared to a vineyard, the things appertaining to worship and to the preservation thereof, are compared to a winepress, and to a t. in the vineyard, as appears from Isa. v. 1, 2; Matt. xxi. 33; Mark xii. 1. 1306. T. (Matt. xxi. 33) s. interior truths from spiritual good, which is there s. by wine-press. A. E. 929. To build a t. (Luke xiv. 27), s. to procure interior truths. 4599.
TOWER of EDER (Gen. xxxv.; Josh. xv. 21) s. the progression of what is holy to interior things. 4599.
TOWERS (Ps. xlviii. 12) s. the interior truths which defend those things which are of love and charity. 4599. T., in the opp. sense, den. the interior things of those who are principled in self-love and the love of the world, thus the falses from which they combat, and by which they confirm their superstitious principles. 4599. T. (Isa. xv. 30) s. doctrines of the false. A. E. 315. Watch-tower (Isa. xxiii. 13) s. fantasies. 1306. T. in the Word are pred. of truths, but mountains of goods. 4599.
TRACHEA. Changes of state ill. by variations of sound in the t. D. P. 279.
TRADE, to, s. to procure knowledges to one's self, and also to communicate, because in heaven, where the Word is perceived according to the internal sense, there is not given any trading, for there is neither gold nor silver there, nor any such things as are traded with in the world, wherefore when mention is made of trading in the Word, it is understood in a spiritual sense, and such a thing is perceived as cor., in general the procuring and communication of knowledges, and specifically that which is named, as if gold is named, the good of love and wisdom is understood, if silver, the truth which is of intelligence and faith is understood, and so in other instances. 4453. To merchandise and t. in the Word, s. to procure spiritual riches, which are the knowledges of things true and good, and, in an opp. sense, knowledges of things false and evil, and by the latter to gain the world, and by the former to gain heaven; for which reason the Lord compared the kingdom of heaven to a merchant seeking goodly pearls (Malt. xiii. 45, 40), and the members of the church to servants, to whom there were given talents to t. with and make profit (Matt. xxv. 14-20), and to whom there were given ten pounds, which they were in like manner to t. witli and make profit by. (Luke xix. 12-26.) And since as by Tyre is s. the church with respect to the knowledges of things true and good, therefore, her t. and merchandise are treated of throughout the whole of the 27th chap, of Ezekiel. (See also chap, xxviii. 5; Isa. xxiii. 1, 8.) And the perverted church among the Jews in the land of Canaan, is called the land of traffic. (Ezek. xvi, 3,29; xxi. 35; xxix. 14.) A. R. 759.
TRADING den. to procure and communicate knowledge. 4453. T. with reference to the goods and truths of the Lord's kingdom. 4453.
TRAIN. (Isa. vi. 1.) By the t, of the Lord is s. in general the divine proceeding, and specifically the divine truth which is in the extremes of heaven and the church. A. E. 253.
TRAMPLE, to, UPON s. to destroy entirely by sensual and natural principles, which are called the fallacies of the senses. A. E. 632.
TRANQUILLITY is produced from internal peace, when cupidities and falses are removed. 3696. T. is pred. when the spiritual man begins to be made celestial. 91-93.
TRANSFIGURATION of the LORD. He was not regenerated as a man, but was made divine, and this from the most essential divine love, for he was made divine love itself; what his form then was, was made apparent to Peter, James, and John, when it was given them to see him, not with the eyes of the body, but with the eyes of the spirit; namely, that his countenance shone like the sun (Matt. xvii. 2); and that this was his divine human, appears from the voice which then came out of the cloud, saying, " This is my beloved son." That son is the divine human. 3212. The Word in its glory was rep. by the Lord when he was transfigured. By his face, which shone as the sun, was rep. his divine good; by his raiment which was as light, his divine truth; by Moses and Elias, the historical and prophetical Word, by Moses, the Word which was written by him, and in general the historical Word, and by Elias the prophetical Word; by the bright cloud which overshadowed the disciples, the Word in the sense of the letter; wherefore out of this the voice was heard, which said, " This is my beloved son, hear ye him," for all declarations and responses from heaven are constantly delivered by means of ultimates, such as are in the literal sense of the Word, for they are delivered in fulness from the Lord. S. S. 48.
TRANSFLUX. The inflowing of the divine through heaven. 6720.
TRANSGRESSIONS, or TRESPASSES,den. such evils as are done against the truths of faith. 9106.

TRAVAIL, to, in BIRTH, s. to conceive and bring forth those things which appertain to spiritual life. A. R. 535.
TRAVAIL, to, WITH CHILD, s. the doctrine of the new church, in its birth, and its difficult reception thereof. A. R. 535.
TRAVEL, to, or SOJOURN, s. change of state. 1463.
TREAD, to, DOWN, or BRUISE (Gen. iii. 15), s. depression. It has the same s. in Isa. xxvi. 5, 6; xxviii. 2, 3. 258.
TREAD, to. the HOLY CITY UNDER FOOT (Rev. xi. 2), s. to disperse the truths of the doctrine of the new church. A. R. 489.
TREAD, to, the WINE-PRESS (Rev. xiv. 20), s. to explore or examine the quality of works, in the present case, works resulting from the doctrine of faith of the church which are evil works, for to t. the w.-p. s. to explore, and the clusters which are trodden s. works. And all exploration or examination of church doctrine is made by the divine truth of the Word, and this not being in that doctrine, but out of it, that also is s. by the w.-p. being trodden without the city. To t. the w.-p. not only s. to explore evil works, but likewise to bear with them in others, also to remove and cast them into hell, in the following places: Isa. lxiii. 1, 2, 3; Lam. i. 15; Rev. xix. 15. A. R. 652.
TREADER, the, TREADING OUT NO WINE in the PRESSES (Isa. xvi. 10), s. that there were no longer any who were in faith. 1071.
TREAD-DOWN, to, den. the depression of evil. 258,9.

TREASURIES den. knowledges of good and truth, and, in the opp. sense, evil and false. 6660.
TREASURE in HEAVEN (Luke xviii. 22) s. goods and truths from the Lord. 5886. Treasures s. the knowledges of truth and good. 10.406.
TREASURES HID in the SAND s. the spiritual things which lie hid in the literal sense of the Word. A. E. 445.
TREASURES on the BACK of CAMELS (Isa. xxx. 6, 7) s. knowledges appertaining to the natural principle. 3048.
TREASURES of DARKNESS, and HIDDEN RICHES of SECRET PLACES (Isa. xlv. 3), s. interior intelligence and wisdom from heaven. A. E. 208.
TREE s. man; and as man is man by virtue of affection which is of the will, and perception which is of the understanding, therefore these also are s. by t. There is also a cor. between man and a t.; wherefore in heaven there appear paradises of t., which cor. to the affections and consequent perceptions of the angels; and in some places in hell, there are also forests, of t. which bear evil fruits, cor. with the concupiscences and consequent thoughts of those who are there. A. R. 400. The t. is man; the effort to produce means is with man, from his will in his understanding; the stem or stalk, wilh its branches and leaves, are in man its means, and are called the truths of faith ; the fruits, which are the ultimate effects of the effort in a t. to fructify are in man uses; in these his will exists. F. 16. Man who is reborn, in like manner as a t., begins from seed, wherefore by seed in the Word is s. the truth which is from good ; also in like manner as a t., ho produces leaves, next blossoms, and finally, fruit, for he produces such things as are of intelligence, which also in the Word are s. by leaves, next such things as are of wisdom, which are s. by blossoms, and finally, such things as are of life; namely, the goods of love and charity in act, which in the Word are s. by fruits; such is the rep. similitude between the fruit-bearing t., and the man who is regenerated, insomuch that from a t. may be learnt how the case is with regeneration, if so be anything be previously known concerning spiritual good and truth. 5115.
TREE PLANTED BESIDE the WATERS that SPREADETH OUT HER ROOTS by the RIVER (Jer. xvii. 8), has respect to the extension of intelligence from the spiritual man into the natural. A. E. 481.
TREE SEEN by NEBUCHADNEZZAR in a DREAM (Dan. iv. 7-14), rep. the church which afterwards became Babylon. A. E. 1029.
TREE of KNOWLEDGE s. the pride of one's own intelligence. D. P. 328. See Eat.
TREE of LIFE (Rev. ii. 7) s. the essential, celestial, and, in a supreme sense, the Lord himself, because from him is all the celestial principle, that is, all love and charity. 2187. A. R. 89.
TREES, in general, s. the perceptions when the celestial man is treated of, but when pred. of the spiritual church, they s. knowledges; by reason the man of the spiritual church has no other perceptions than what are der. by knowledges from doctrine, or the Word, for these constitute his faith, consequently, his conscience whence perception comes. 103, 2722. T. (Joel i. 10-12) s. knowledges. 368. See Groves, Leaves.
TREES, two, in the GARDEN of EDEN, one of life, and the other of the knowledge of good and evil, s. that free agency was given to man in spiritual things. U. T. 466-469, 479. The t. of life s. perception from the Lord, and the t. of the knowledge of good and evil, perception from the world. A. E. 739. T. of E. (Ezck. xxxi. 16) s. scientifics, and knowledges collected from the Word profaned by reasonings. 130.
TREES of the FIELD (Ezek. xxxi. 15) s. the knowledges of truth in the church. A. E. 372.

TREES of JEHOVAH, and CEDARS of LEBANON (Ps. civ. 16), s. the spiritual man. 776.
TREMOR. Felt in the nerves and bones when invaded by evil spirits. 3219.
TREMBLE, to (Jer. x. 10), is pred. of the church, when falses are believed, and called truths. A. E. 400.
TREMBLE, to, or to be AMAZED (Ezek. xxvi. 15-18), s. an entire change of state. A. E. 406.
TREMBLING, dregs of the cup of, s. mere falses from which, evils are der. A. E. 724.
TRESPASS, ONAN'S, s. his aversion and hatred against the good and truth of the church. 4834.
TRIANGULAR s. what is right in the ultimate degree, which is the natural. A. R. 905.
TRIBE s. the church with respect to its truths and goods, and, in an opp. sense, with respect to its falses and evils. A. R. 587. T. s. the church with respect to religion. A. R. 282. The t. which is first named in the series or class, s. some love which is of the will, and the t. which is named after it, s. something of wisdom, which is of the understanding, and the t. which is named last, s. some use or effect der. from them; thus each. series is full, or complete. A. R. 360.
TRIBES. In general the twelve t. s. all things appertaining to the doctrine of truth and good, or of faith and love; these principles, namely, truth and good, or faith and love, constitute the Lord's kingdom, for the things appertaining to truth or faith are the all of thought therein, and the things appertaining to good or love are the all of affection; and whereas the Jewish church was instituted, that it might rep. the Lord's kingdom, therefore the partitions of that people into twelve t. had this s.; this is an arcanum which has not heretofore been discovered. 3859. Love to the Lord is s. by the three first t, namely, Judah, Reuben, and Gad; charity towards our neighbor, by these three t., Asher, Naphtali, and Manasseh ; but the obedience of faith iss. by the three following t., namely, Simeon, Levi, and Issachar; the conjunction of them all with the Lord, is s. by the last three t., Zebulon, Joseph, and Benjamin; these things in sum are s. by all these t. named in this order, for their s. are according to the order in which they are named. (Rev. vii.) A. E. 438.
TRIBES of ZEBULON, JOSEPH, and BENJAMIN. The t. of Z. s. the conjunction of those who are in the third heaven with the Lord; the t. of J., the conjunction of those who are in the second heaven with the Lord; and the t. of B., the conjunction of those who are in the first heaven with the Lord. A. E. 448.
TRIBES of the EARTH SHALL WAIL (Rev. 5. 7) s. that there are no longer any goods and truths in the church. A. R. 27.
TRIBULATION (Matt. xxiv. 29) s. the state of the church when there are no longer any goods and truths. A. R. 27.
TRIBUTE, or CUSTOM. (Matt. xvii. 25-27.) By giving t., or c., are meant they who serve, wherefore it is said, " that strangers should give, and sons should be free," for strangers are servants. 6394.
TRINE, the, IN ONE exists in the Lord only. D. P. 123. In everything there is a t., called end, cause, and effect D. L. W. 209.
TRINITY. In the Lord God the Saviour there is a divine t., which is, the Divine from which are all things, which is called the Father; the divine human, which is called the Son, and the proceeding divine which is called the Holy Spirit. U. T. 188. That this t. was not before the world was created, but that after the world was created when God became incarnate, it was provided and made; and then in the Lord God, the redeemer and saviour, Jesus Christ. U. T. 170. The t. existing in one person, that is, in the Lord, is the divine essence which is called the Father, the divine human which is called the Son, and the divine proceeding which is called the Holy Spirit; thus there is a t. in unity. 2149, 2156.
TROOP, a (Gen. xxx. 11), s., in a supreme sense, omnipotence and omniscience; in an internal sense, the good of faith; and, in an external sense, works. The ground and reason why t., in a supreme sense, den. omnipotence and omniscience, is, because t., in the present case, is a multitude, and when multitude is pred. of the Lord's divine it is an infinite multitude, which is nothing else than omnipotence and omniscience; but omnipotence is pred. of quantity in relation to magnitude, and omniscience, of quantity in relation to multitude; omnipotence also is pred. of infinite good, or, what is the same thing, of the divine love, thus of the divine will, but omniscience of infinite truth, or, what is the same thing, of the divine intelligence. That t, in an internal sense, den. the good of faith, is from cor., for good, which is of charity, cor. to the Lord's divine omnipotence, and truth, which is of faith, to his omniscience. The reason why t., in an external sense, den. works, is, because these cor. to the good of faith, for the good of faith produces works, inasmuch as the good of faith cannot be given without works, just as thinking what is good and willing what is good, cannot exist without doing what is good, the former being an internal principle, and the latter a cor. external. 3934. T. (Gen. xlix. 19) s. works without judgment. 6405. See Drove.
TROUGH (Gen. xxiv. 20) s. the good of truth, for water in the t. s. truth, and the t. itself s. the same as wood, namely, good. The good of truth is what is produced from good by truth, and is an offspring born of truth as of a mother, and of good as of a father; all genuine good which is in the natural man is thence, or from the marriage of good and truth in the rational; this good is what is called the good of truth, and is s. in the Word by t., or place to receive water. 3095. A little t. (Exod ii. 16) s. the doctrine of charity. The reason whereof is, because it is a wooden t. into which water is drawn from a well to give flocks to drink; for what is wooden, in the internal sense, s. the good of charity; to draw s. to be instructed; the water which is drawn s. the truth of faith; the well from which it is drawn s. the Word ; and to give the flocks to drink s. to instruct in good from the Word. From these considerations it may be manifest, that a little t. den. the doctrine of charity. 6777. See Drinking Troughs, Kneading Troughs.
TRUE and FAITHFUL. (Rev. xxi. 5.) " These words are t. and f." s. that they may know this of a certainty, because the Lord himself testified and said it, A. R. 886.
TRUMPET. Voices as of a t. are heard in heaven, when convocations and ordinations take place; therefore, among the children of Israel, with whom all things were rep. of heaven and the church, it was also commanded, that they should make t. of silver, and that the sons of Aaron should blow with them for the calling of assemblies, and for the journeying of the camps, in days of rejoicing, in festivals, in the beginning of months, over burnt-offerings, for a memorial, and going to war. (Num. x. 1-11.) A. R. 226. To sound a t. as to its effect, s. the revelation and manifestation of divine truth, and, in an opp. sense, the deprivation of truth and desolation. A. E. 502. By sounding with t. is s. to call together upon solemn occasions, and also to explore and discover the quality of the church. A. R. 391, 397. Seven t. which the seven angels sounded (Rev. xvi.) s. the exploring and laying open of the falses and evils in which they are who are principled in faith separate from charity. A. R.676.
TRUMPETS and all WIND INSTRUMENTS have respect to celestial affections. A. R. 792.
TRUMPETS, TIMBRELS, PSALTERIES, and HARPS. T. and t. cor. to celestial goods and truths; and p. and h., to spiritual goods and truths. The cor. is with their sounds. A. R. 276.
TRUST, or CONFIDENCE. All c. draws its esse from the end of life, and hence only exists in good. 4683.
TRUTH, in its purest and naked principles, is not to be found existing either with men or angels, but only in the Lord. 3207, 7902. Celestial t. is charily, and spiritual t. ia faith. 5897. There is a difference between celestial t. and t. celestial; the former is t. which der. its origin from the celestial; but the latter der. its origin from t. which is implanted in the celestial by means of knowledges. 1545. T. from a celestial origin is the t. of the literal sense of the Word. A. E. 1042. Natural t. is t. in the memory, and not in the life. A. E. 176. There is a difference between scientific t., rational t., and intellectual t., and they succeed each other; scientific t. is of science; rational t. is scientific t. confirmed by reason, and intellectual t. is joined with an internal perception that it is so. 1496. T. is the first or chief of combat, for the combat is supported by t. inasmuch as the,knowledge of what is false and what is evil is acquired by t., wherefore such combats never exist before man is imbued with the sciences and knowledges of t. and good. 1685. So far as any one loves t., so far he is desirous of knowing it, and so far he is in heart affected when he finds it, nor can any other attain unto wisdom; and so far as he loves to do the t,, so far he is made sensible of the pleasantness of the light in which the t. is. Dec. 89.
TRUTH DIVINE in the Lord's human divine, which underwent temptations, is not essential d. t., for this is above all temptation; but it is truth rational, such as belongs to the angels, consisting in appearances of truth, and is what is called the Son of man, but before glorification ; whereas d. t. in the Lord's divine human glorified is above appearances, nor can in any wise come to any understanding, not even of the angels, and still less to the apprehension of man, thus in nowise to any thing of temptation; it appears in the heavens as the light which is from the Lord. Concerning this d. t., or the Son of man glorified, it is thus written in John: " Jesus said, now is the Son of man glorified, and God is glorified in him ; if God be glorified in him, God shall also glorify him in himself, and shall straightway glorify him." (xiii. 31, 32.) That a distinct idea may be had of this most deep arcanum, it is permitted to call the truth with the Lord, which could be tempted, and which underwent temptations, t. d. in the Lord's human divine, but to call the truth which could not be tempted, or undergo any temptation, because it was glorified, d. t. in the Lord's divine human. 2814.
TRUTH OF DOCTRINE. There is no church in man, till t. of d., conceived in the internal man, is born in the external. A. R. 17.
TRUTH OF GOOD and GOOD OF TRUTH. The t. of g., or t. from g. is masculine; and the g. of t., or g. from that t, is feminine. C. S. L. 88, 90.
TRUTH and GOOD. T. is conjoined to g., when a man perceives delight in doing well to his neighbor for the sake oft. and g.,but not for the sake of himself and the world ; when a man is in that affection, the truths which he then hears, or reads, or thinks, are conjoined to good; which also is wont to be apperceived from the affection of truth for the sake of that end. 5340. T. itself is the spiritual principle of the church, and g. itself is its celestial principle, but with different persons t. and g, are differently understood ; such therefore as the understanding of t. is, such is the t. appertaining to every one; the case is similar in regard to the understanding of good. 5354. T. in itself is g. because der. from g. T. is the form of g., that is, when g. is formed that it may be intellectually perceived, then it is called t. 3049.
TRUTHS. The t. which are imbibed by man in his infancy and childhood from the Word, doctrine, and preaching thence, appear indeed as t. but, nevertheless they are not t. with him, because they are only like tho shell without the kernel, or like the form of the face and body, without the soul and life; but when they are received in the will-principle, then first they become t. and begin to acquire a vital efficacy. A. E. 434. Man is first affected with external t., and afterwards with internal, for external t. are the planes of internal ones, being general principles into which particular ones are insinuated, inasmuch as man, without a general idea of a thing, comprehends nothing particular; hence it is, that in the literal sense of the Word are general t., but, in the internal sense, particular t.; the former are what are called external, but the latter internal; and whereas t. without affection are not t., as not being connected with life, therefore when mention is made of external and internal t., the affections thereof are understood. 3819. T., in a spiritual form, are such as are in the spiritual sense of the Word, but t., in a natural form, are in the natural sense of the Word, which although distinct make one by cor. A. E. 700.
TUBAL-CAIN, an INSTRUCTOR of every ARTIFICER in BRASS and IRON (Gen. iv. 22), s. the doctrine of natural good and truth. T.-C. is called an instructor of every artificer, and not a father, as was the case with Jabal and Jubal; because celestial and spiritual, or internal things, had before no existence, wherefore the term father is applied in the case of Jabal and Jubal, as s. that such internal things then first began to exist; whereas natural or external things existed before, but were now applied to internal things, therefore T.-C. is not called a father, but an instructor of the artificer. 421,423.
TUBAL and JAVAN (Isa. lxvi. 18, 10) den. those who are in external worship, cor. with internal, who were to be instructed concerning things internal. 1151.
TUBERCLES. Des. of the spirits who cor. to the t. 5188.
TUMULT (Isa. xiii. 4) s. eagerness of desire for combating against truths. A. E. 453.
TUN. Des. of an infernal. 820, 947,948.
TUN. They who are deceitful and think to secure every thing to themselves by deceitful contrivances, and have confirmed themselves in such habits during the life of the body, by being successful herein, they seem to themselves to dwell in a kind of very large t. 947,948.
TUNE. The singing of heaven is nothing else than an affection of the mind, which is emitted through the mouth as a t. C. L. 155.
TURBAN s. intelligence which is of truth. A. E. 204.
TURN, to, truths into good, is to will and do them. 5820. The interiors of all who love the Lord, are turned to him, while those who love themselves are t. to hell. 10.702.
TURN ASIDE, to, judgment, den. to pervert and to destroy. 9260. In the case of angels who came to Lot, s. dwelling in the good of charity. 2330.
TURNING ASIDE, like going down, is pred. of elongation from good to evil, and from truth to the false. 4816.
TURPENTINE-NUT den. the goods of life, exterior and interior. 5622.
TURTLES, and YOUNG PIGEONS, s. things spiritual. 1361. 10.132.
TURTLE DOVE (Ps. lxxiv. 19) s. spiritual good. A. E. 388.
TURTLE DOVE and YOUNG PIGEON (Gen.xv. 9) s. those things which are rep. of spiritual things, exterior and interior. 1827. See Soul of Thy Turtle Dove.
TWELVE. That t. s. all things of faith, has been heretofore unknown to the world, nevertheless, this is the constant s. of t., wherever that number occurs, either in the historical or prophetical Word ; nothing else is s. by the t. sons of Jacob, and hence by the t. tribes which took their names from them ; in like manner, by the t. disciples of the Lord, each rep. an essential and primary principle of faith. 2089.
TWELVE and TWENTY-FOUR s. all things, and are pred. of truths. A. E. 253.
TWELVE ANGELS (Rev. xxi. 12) s. the same as the twelve tribes. 1925.
TWELVE DISCIPLES of the LORD, the, rep. the church at large, as to all things belonging to faith and charity, in like manner as the twelve tribes of Israel. 2129.
TWELVE GATES of the NEW JERUSALEM (Rev. xxi.) s. the knowledges in chief of truth and good, by which man is introduced into the church, by twelve pearls is also s. the knowledges in chief of truth and good, hence it is that the gates were pearls; the reason why each of the gates was of one pearl, is, because all the knowledges of truth and good, which are s. by gates and by pearls, have relation to one knowledge, which is their continent, which one knowledge is the knowledge of the Lord; it is called one knowledge, although there are several which make that one knowledge, for the knowledge of the Lord is the universal of all things of doctrine, and thence of all things of the church; from it all worship der. its life and soul, for the Lord is all in all in heaven and the church, and thence all in all in worship. A. R. 916.
TWELVE HOURS (John xi. 9) s. all the states of truth. 6000.
TWELVE PRECIOUS STONES in the FOUNDATION of the NEW JERUSALEM (Rev. xxi.) s. all things of the doctrines of the New Jerusalem in their order from the literal sense of the Word, with those who immediately approach the Lord, and live according to the commandments of the decalogue, by shunning evil as sins. These t. p. s. s. the like as the twelve tribes of Israel respectively, because by the twelve tribes are s., in like manner, all the goods and truths of the church, and of its doctrine in their order; for which reason, it is also said in this chapter, verse 14, that in these twelve foundations were written the names of the twelve apostles of the Lamb, and by the twelve apostles are s. all things of doctrine concerning the Lord, and concerning a life conformable to his commandments. The same is also s. by these twelve stones as by the t. p. s. in the breast-plate of Aaron, which was called Urim and Thummim, as recorded in Exod. xxviii. 15-21, with this difference, that upon the latter were the names of the twelve tribes of Israel, but upon the former, the names of the twelve apostles of the Lamb. A. R. 915.
TWELVE SONS of JACOB rep. the twelve general or cardinal things, whereby man is initiated into things spiritual and celestial, during the process of regeneration, or of being made a church; for whilst man is regenerating, or is made a church, that is, whilst from a dead man he is made alive, or from corporeal is made celestial, he is led of the Lord through several states; the general states are those which are den. by these t. s., and afterwards by the twelve tribes; wherefore, the twelve tribes s. all things relating to faith and love. 3913.
TWELVE TRIBES of ISRAEL s. all the goods and truths of the church in their order. A. R. 915.
TWENTY, when pred. of that number of things, s. all, or what is full, being compounded of twice ten. 10.222. T. (Gen. xviii. 31.) As all numbers which occur in the Word s. things and states, so also it is with t., the s. whereof may appear from its derivation, namely, from twice ten ; ten in the Word, as also tenths, s, remains, whereby is s. every good anf truth which the Lord insinuates into man from infancy, even to the last period of life; twice ten, or twice tenths, that is, t. s. the same thing, but in a superior degree, namely, good. Good things of a threefold kind are s. by remains, namely, the good things of infancy, the good things of ignorance, and the good things of intelligence. 2280.
TWENTY-FOUR s. all things, and are pred. of truths. A. E. 253.
TWENTY-SEVENTH DAY (Gen. viii. 14) s. what is holy, as appears from this circumstance, because it is compounded of the number three twice multiplied into itself: three multipled into itself is nine, and nine again multiplied by three is twenty-seven, wherefore, in twenty-seven three is the ruling number. 901.
TWILIGHT s. the last time of the church. 10.134.
TWINS. T. in the womb (Gen. xxv. 24) s. that both (viz., good and truth, rep, by Esau and Jacob) were conceived together. 3298.
TWO s. all, with respect to good. A. R. 245. T. s. conjunction, because all and singular things, which are in the spiritual world, and thence which are in the natural, have reference to t. principles, namely, to good and truth, to good as to what is agent and influent, and to truth as to what is patient and recipient, and because they have reference to those t. principles, and nothing is in any case produced, unless those t. principles are made one by somewhat resembling a marriage, it is from this ground that by t. is s. conjunction; such a somewhat resembling a marriage is in all and singular things of nature, and of her three kingdoms, and without it nothing at all exists. 5194. T., in the Word, s. the sams as six, that is, combat and labor which precede regeneration. 900. T. (Gen. vii. 2) s. what is respectively profane, as may appear from the s. of that number. T. s. not only a marriage, but, when the marriage is celestial, it is a holy number, but it s. also the same as six, in that it has the same relation to three that six days of labor have to the seventh of rest, or the holy day; wherefore, the third day, in the Word, is taken for the seventh, and involves nearly the same thing, by reason of the Lord's resurrection on the third day; hence also the Lord's coming into the world and into glory, and also every coming of his, as it is des. by the seventh day, so it is, likewise, by the third day, and hence the t. preceding days are not holy, but respectively profane, as in Hosea vi. 1, 2 ; and in Zech. xii. 8, 9. 720.
TWO DAYS (Hosea vi. 2) s. the time and state which precedes judgment. 2405.
TWO OLIVE TREES and TWO SONS of OIL (Zech. iv. 2, 3, 4) are the good of love to the Lord, and the good of charity towards our neighbor. A. E. 75.
TWO TIMES (Gen. xliii. 10) den. exterior and interior life. 5614.
TWO and TWO (Gen. vii. 9) s. things cor. as may appear to every one from this, that they are pairs, which pairs cannot exist unless they cor. with each other, as truths and goods, evils and falses; for there is in all things a kind of marriage, or coupling, as of truths with goods, and of evils with falses, in consequence of the marriage of the understanding with the will; or of things intellectual with things voluntary, and indeed every thing has its marriage, or its coupling, without which, it is impossible for it to subsist at all. 747.
TWO-THREE and FOUR-FIVE. (Isa. xvii. 6.) T.-t. s. those who are in good and thence in truths, and f.-f. s. few who are in good. A. E. 532.
TWO and THREE. (Matt. xviii. 19, 20.) T. are pred. of good, and t. of truth. A. E. 411.
TYRANT. The true king and t. contrasted. 10.805.
TYRE (Ezek. xxvii. 13, 14) rep. those who possess the knowledges of things celestial and spiritual. 1154.
TYRE and ZIDON were the ultimate borders of Philisthea, and were near the sea, and therefore by T. are s. interior knowledges, and by Z. exterior knowledges, and this of things spiritual, which also appears from the Word. 1201.
TYTHES, or TEN, den. fullness; a tenth part, sufficiency. 8468.
