(Gen. xxviii. 8) s. affections of truth from a ground not genuine, whereas in Gen. xxviii. 1, they s. the affections of what is false and evil, the reason of which distinction is, that the Hittites were in the land of C. of the church of the Gentiles and not so much principled in what is false and evil, as the other nations therein; viz.. the Canaanites, the Amorites, and the Perizites. A. C. 3662, 3686. The land of C. in the Word s. the church, because the church had been in that land from the most ancient time, first the most ancient church which was before the flood, next the ancient church which was after the flood, afterwards the other ancient church which was called the Hebrew church, and at length the Jewish church; and that the Jewish church might be there instituted, Abram was commanded to betake himself thither out of Syria, and it was there promised that that land should be given to his posterity for an inheritance.

CELESTIAL as well as SPIRITUAL is pred. both of the rational and of the natural principle, that is, of the internal man, which is the rational man, and of the external, which is the natural man; for the s. principle in its essence is the divine truth which proceeds from the Lord, and the c. is the divine good which is in that divine truth.

CELESTIAL DOCTRINE, love towards the Lord. A. C. 7257.
CELESTIAL FORM. See Lord.
CELESTIAL GOOD consists in looking to the Lord; and in believing that from him alone is all good and truth; and that from man, or his proprium, there is nothing but evil. Ap. Ex. 324. C. g. is the same with the good of love in the will, and in act. Ap. Ex. 821.
CELESTIAL LOVE is love to the Lord, received in the celestial kingdom; and spiritual love is love to the Lord received in the spiritual kingdom. Ap. Ex. 433. The good of c. l. immediately proceeds from the divine human of the Lord. Ap. Ex. 364.
CELESTIAL MAN, a, believes and perceives spiritual and celestial truth and goodness, nor does he acknowledge any other faith, but what has its ground in love, which love is also the principle of his actions. A. C. 81. The ends which influence him regard the Lord and thereby his kingdom and eternal life. He is engaged in no combats, and in case he is assaulted by evils and falses he despises them, and is therefore called a conqueror. A. C. 81. A c. m. does nothing of his own pleasure but of the good pleasure of the Lord which is his pleasure: thus he enjoys peace and internal felicity, which is expressed by ” riding on the high places of the earth,” and he enjoys at the same time tranquillity and external delight, which is signified by feeding on the “heritage of Jacob.” (Isa. lviii. 13, 14.) A. C. 85. The c. m. is the interior rational man. A. C. 4402. The Lord came into the world not to save the c., but the spiritual; the most ancient church, which was called m., was c., and if this had remained in its integrity, the Lord would have had no need that he should be born m.

The c. p. consists in perceiving solely the affection of the things contained in the internal sense. A. C. 2275. All laws relating to what is true and right flow from c. p., or from the order of life in the c. man ; for the whole heaven is a c. man from this, that the Lord alone is a c. man; and this is the true ground of their being called c. A. C. 162.
CELESTIAL and ANGELICAL PROPRIUM from the LORD. It is by virtue thereof that the church is called a woman, and also a bride, a wife, a virgin, and a daughter. A. C. 253. In order that man may receive a c, p., he ought to do good from himself, and to think truth from himself, but still to know that all good and truth is from the Lord. A. C. 2883. The c. p. exists from the new will which is given by the Lord, and differs from man’s p. in this, that they no longer respect themselves in all and singular the things which they do, and in all and singular the things which they learn and teach, but they respect the neighbor, the public, the church, the kingdom of the Lord, and thereby the Lord himself. A. C. 5660.
CELESTIAL SENSE, the, of the Word, is the highest or most interior; but this sense cannot easily be unfolded, not being so much the object of intellectual thought, as of will affection. S. S. 19.
CELESTIAL SPIRITS are intermediate angelical societies, called c. spiritual. A. C. 4047. H. and H. 26.
CELESTIAL SPIRITUAL is that which is s. from a c. origin. A. C. 1001.
CELESTIAL, the, of the spiritual principle is truth from the divine, because the Lord’s internal human before it was fully glorified, inasmuch as it was the receptacle of the divine itself, was the c. of the spiritual principle, so to be called, because it cannot be expressed in other terms. A. C. 5471. All men whatsoever are born natural, with the ability to become either c. or spiritual. A. C. 4592. The Lord alone was born a spiritual c. man, but all others natural, with the faculty or ability that by regeneration from the Lord they may be made either c. or spiritual. A. C. 4594.
CELESTIAL AND SPIRITUAL. The divine love of the Lord in the heavens is called c. and s. with respect only to its reception by the angels and not from any divisibility in itself. Moreover, s. love exists from c. love, as an effect from its efficient cause, and as truth from good. Ap. Ex. 496.
CELESTIAL THINGS. In them alone the Lord is present, and from them all perception is derived. A. C. 1442. When c. t. have the dominion, they ill. worldly things, place them in a clear light, and take away doubts. A. C. 4099. C. t. exterior, appertain to the external man ; c. t. interior, appertain to the internal man; and c. t. spiritual are what are thence derived. The essential c. principle is love to the Lord and neighborly love; and in the interior man is called the c. interior principle, In the exterior man it is called the c. exterior principle which is every affection of good, and also every pleasure thence derived, and the c. spiritual principle is every affection of truth which is generated from the affection of good. A. C. 1824. C. t. are not clothed, but spiritual and natural things are. A. C. 5248.
CELIBACY. Chastity cannot be pred. of those who have renounced marriage by vows of perpetual c., unless there be and remain in them the love of a life truly conjugial. C. L. 155. C. has place only among those who are in external worship, and who do not address themselves to the Lord, or read the Word. Ib. 155. The reason why they who live in c. are on the side of heaven, is because the sphere of perpetual c. infests the sphere of conjugial love, which is the very essential sphere of heaven. C. S. L. 54.
CELLULAR. Substance of the lungs, exp. D. L. W. 413.

CHARITY, or GOOD, is actually the first principle or constituent of the church, and truth or faith the secondary principle, although it appears otherwise. A. C. 3424. C. is the very ground of the seeds of faith; truth and g. agree together, but truth and evil do not agree. A. C. 2313. C. is an internal affection of the soul, proceeding from the Lord Jesus Christ, as its proper fountain, and prompting a man to do g., and to act uprightly from a pure love of goodness and uprightness, without any regard to reward or recompense; for it brings its own reward along with it, and in its exercise is attended with the highest and purest satisfactions of life. N. J. D. 104. C. the genuine goods of, are all from a spiritual origin. A. C. 5119. C. alone is a natural, not a spiritual, affection. Ap. Ex. 232.

C. is the uniting medium of the rational, natural, and sensual. A. C. 5133. The state of c. with man is according to the quality and quantity of truth. A. C. 2189. The offices exercised towards the hungry, thirsty, strangers, naked, sick, and bound in prison, which are spoken of by our Lord (Matt. xxv. 34, 36), comprehend the whole doctrine of c. A. L. 4954, 4959. C. is of the internal man, and is the internal man himself. A. C. 1012. C., which is the life of the Lord, is not in man, but with him. A. C. 1010. C. gives the faculty of receiving influx from the Lord, and salvation thereby. A. C. 8321. The doctrine of c., in the ancient church, was chiefly insisted on, which constituted a great part of their wisdom. A. C. 2417. The life of c. consists in man’s thinking well of others, and desiring g. to others, and perceiving joy in himself at the salvation of others. A. C. 2284. The first part of c. consists in putting away what is evil, and the second in doing what is g. and profitable to our neighbor. By c. there is conjunction of the Lord with man, and by faith there is conjunction of man with the Lord. A. R. 571. All things which are of the doctrine of faith lead to c., are in it, and are derived from it. A. C. 2228. C. is the essence of faith, and faith separated therefrom is merely natural, but conjoined thereto becomes spiritual. A. R. 417. C. may be adjoined to any heretical faith. U. T. 450. C. and g. works are two distinct things, like willing what is g., and doing what is g. C. consists in acting justly and faithfully in whatsoever office, business, or employment a person is engaged, and with whomsoever he has any commerce or connection. U. T. 420.
CHASTE LOVE of the female sex, the, s. to love them for their beauty, virtue, and intelligence, free from all allurements of libidinous desire. Conjugial love is another thing, but with those who are principled in it, there is also the c. l. of the sex in general. C. L. 55, 138.
CHASTE PRINCIPLE, the, and the non-chaste, are pred. only of marriages, and of such things as relate to marriages. C. S. L. 139, 140. The c. p. is pred, only of monogamical marriages, or the marriage of one man with one wife. C. S. L. 141. The Christian conjugial p. alone is c. 142. Love truly conjugial, is essential chastity. C. S. L. 143. All the delights of love truly coujugial, even the ultimate are c. C. S. L. 144.
CHASTEN, to admit into temptations. A. E. 246.
CHASTITY, cannot be pred. of those who abstain from adulteries, only for various external reasons. C. S. L. 153. C. cannot be pred. of those who believe marriages to be unchaste. C. S. L. 154. C. cannot be pred. of those who have renounced marriage by vows of perpetual celibacy, unless there be and remain in them the love of a life truly conjugial. C. S. L. 155.
CHAUNTING (of the Land) (Gen. xliii. 11) den. things excellent, land den. the church, and vessels den. the truths of faith. The expression c. is used, because in the original tongue it is derived from singing; hence the c. of the land s. productions chaunted and commended, consequently, in the internal sense, things more excellent. A. C. 5018.
CHEDORLAOMER (Gen. xiv. 4,5) den. apparent good and truth in the Lord’s external man. A. C. 1669. C.

C. as soon as they die are taken up into heaven, and delivered to such of the female angels as, when in this world, were more particularly fond of c., and who also loved God. H. and H. 332. C. are instructed in heaven by the most exquisitely delicate rep. adequate to their tender capacities. H. and H. 335, 336. C. are born with inclinations to such things as their parents were inclined to. C. S. L. 202, 205. C. born from parents who are principled in love truly conjugial, derive from their parents the conjugial principle of good and truth, by virtue whereof, they have an inclination and faculty, if sons, to perceive the things appertaining to wisdom; and if daughters, to love those things which wisdom teaches.

CHRISTIAN, a, is one who is principled in truth grounded in good. A. C. 3010. A c. is one who acknowledges the Lord Jesus Christ as the only God of heaven and earth, and follows his commandments. U. T. 682. No c. can be admitted into heaven, unless he believes in the Lord God and Saviour, and approaches him alone. U. T. 107, 108.
CHRISTIAN CHURCH, the, is one with the church instituted with the Jews, only the latter was external, but the former was internal. A. C 4868. The c. c. in its essence is the same as to its internal form, with the rep. church. A. C. 4489. The true quality of the c. c. is almost the same as was that of the sons of Shem. A. C. 1141. The c. c. founded by the Lord when he was in the world, is now, for the first time, built up by himself. U. T. 674. The Christian or new church is instituted, which not like the former, was led by rep. to internal things, but knows them without rep. A. C. 4904. The former c. c. is at an end. U. T. 757. The c. c. which is in possession of the Word, is as the heart and lungs in the grand man, wilh respect to those who are without the pale of the church. A. C. 4217. The universal c. c. is founded upon the worship of Jehovah in human form. U. T. 94. The c. c. at this day, is in the extremes, or at the lowest degree. A. C. 3489, 4649. The rituals and rep. of the Jewish church contained the arcana of the c. c. A. C. 3478. There is no c. c. amongst the Papists. N. J. D. 8.
CHRISTIAN WORLD, the, is in works alone, and in no truths of doctrine, wherefore they cannot be called any thing else but Gentiles; they know the Lord indeed, but yet do not apply to him, and are possessed of the Word, but yet do not search for truths in it. A. R. 110. In the c. w. at this day, there is neither church nor religion. A. R. 675. They are the worst of all in the spiritual world, who come from the c. w. A. C. 1032.
CHRISTIANS. The greater part at this day are either Arians or Socinians, and such, if they worship Christ as God, are hypocrites. A. R. 294. C. are in the midst of the other nations in the spiritual world. U. T. 268. C. have so extinguished the good of love and charity, that they cannot be informed by influx, and ill. from the Word. A. C. 10.355. The reason why they have acknowledged three divine persons, is because there is a threefold principle in the Lord, which is apparently distinguished by appropriate names in the Word. L. 55. C. were examined in the spiritual world, and they were not able to pronounce this expression, Divine human. U. T. 111.
CHRYSOLITE. See Precious Stones.
CHRYSOPRASUS (Exod. xxviii. 18) s. the celestial love of truth. A. C 9868.
CHURCH, the, is called a c. from doctrine, and religion is so called from a a life according to doctrine. A. R. 923. All things of the c. in length of time are changed into the opposites. A. C. 1151. The c. in the Lord’s kingdom is like the heart and lungs in man. the interiors of man being joined with his externals by means of the heart and lungs whence life is derived to all the neighboring viscera; so also it is with human an race. A. C. 2054. When the c. is near to its end, evil and the false reign, and then good spirits retire. A. C. 8054. The genuine things of the c. could be rep. by the Jews. A. C. 4208. The c. does not really exist with man before its truths are implanted in his life, and thus formed into the good of charity. A. C. 3310. Every c. is at first Ritual, and commences from charity. L. J. 38. The state of the c. after the advent of the Lord was entirely changed. S. S. 99. The c. goes through its several successive ages like man. A. C. 4672. The essential of the c. is to acknowledge the divine of the Lord, and his union with the father. H. and H. 34. The most ancient c. was altogether unacquainted with sacrifices. The ancient c. which was after the flood was likewise unacquainted with sacrifices; it was indeed principled in rep., but sacrifices were first instituted in the succeeding c., which was called the Hebrew c. A. C. 2180. There are two things which conjoin the men of the church; viz., life and doctrine; if life conjoins, doctrine does not separate, but if doctrine only conjoins, then they mutually separate. A. C. 4468. All the states of the c. were rep. with the Lord in the world, and in what manner by him men should be saved. A. C. 2661, 2672. The successive states of the c. des. in the Word, do not appear to any one in the world, for they are successive states, as to tbe understanding of truth from the Word, and these no one can see but the Lord alone. Ap. Ex. 361. The internal of the c. is charity, and thence faith, but the external of the c. is the good of life. Ap. Ex. 403. Wheresoever there is a c. there must of necessity be both an internal and an external. A. C. 1083. In the end of the c., when there is no faith because no charity, the interior things of the Word are then manifested, which shall serve the new c. for doctrine and for life; this was done by the Lord himself, at his first advent in a considerable manner and degree at the end or consummation of the Jewish c., as the new Christian c. was able to bear it. Ap. Ex. 670. When the c. is vastated, i.e. when it is no longer in any good of faith, it principally perishes as to the states of its interior, thus as to states in another life, in such case, heaven removes itself from them, and, consequently, the Lord transfers himself to others who are adopted in their place. A. C. 4432. The c. of the Lord is compared with the time of the day, its first age with the dawn or sunrise and the morning, its last age with the sunset or evening, and the shades which then take place; for the cases are exactly similar; in like manner it is compared with the seasons of the year, nay, it is also compared to metals. See Dan. ii. 31-33. A. C. 1837. The c. is in a perfect human form, as well as heaven, from the divine humanity of the Lord. A. C. 4837. At this day there is no c. in the Christian world, neither among the Roman Catholics, nor among the reformed. A. R. 263. The c. appears before the Lord as a man, beautiful or deformed, according to its doctrine; and at the same time conformity of life to it. A. R. 601. The c. in process of time decreases, by receding from the good of love, and truth of faith, even until evil is supposed to be good, and falsehood truth. A. R. 658. Every c. has a threefold principle, called celestial, spiritual, and natural, hence it is that Noah had three sons. A. V. C. R. 39. The c. in heaven could not subsist without the c. in the earths. A. R. 533. Upon every c. there has been a last judgment executed, after which there has been a new heaven, and a new hell. A. V. C. R. 36. The c. is the marriage of the good of love, and of the truth of doctrine. A. R. 349. The c. is not a c. from externals, or ritual observances, but from internals. A. C. 4831. Every c. in its beginning, is only acquainted with the general [principles] of doctrine. A. C. 468. The c. is formed by the Lord, in man (vir), and through the man (vir) in the wife, and afterwards it is formed with both, and is complete. C. S. L. 63, 125. The c. with its truths and goods can never be given among any others than those who live with one wife in love truly conjugial. C. S. L. 76. Wherever the c. is treated of in the Word, there the Lord also is treated of. S. S. 89. The c. of the Lord is internal and external; in the internal c. are they who are in intelligence and wisdom, and thence are in the superior heavens; but in the external c. are they who are in sciences and the knowledges of truth and good from the Word, and not in any interior intelligence and wisdom, and are thence in the inferior heavens, these are called spiritual natural, but the former spiritual. Ap. Ex. 629. The Lord’s c. everywhere is internal and external; the internal is of the heart, and the external is of the mouth ; or the internal is of the will, and the external is of action ; when the internal makes one with the external in man, then that which is of the heart is also of the mouth, or that which is of the will is also of action. A. C. 9375. The c. which falsifies the truths of the Word, is therein des. by Cain, by Reuben, the Philistines, the goat in Daniel and by the dragon and his two beasts in the Apocalypse; and the c. which has adulterated all the goods of the c., is des. by Babylon and by Chaldea, in the Word. Ap. Ex. 817. It is always provided by the Lord, that some c. shall remain, and when the old c. perishes, a new c. is raised up. A. C. 4069. Without a c. somewhere upon earth, which is in possession of the Word, no communication could be given with heaven, and the human race would perish. A. C. 4423, 9276. The c. of the Lord as to doctrine, is rep. as a city and sometimes as an espoused virgin. (Rev. xxi. 2.) A. R. 881. The angels of heaven lament when the c. on the earths is destroyed, and pray to the Lord, that it may be brought to an end, which is effected by the last judgment. Because the c. on the earths is the foundation of heaven. A. R. 645. In every c. there have been four following changes of state, in the first of which there was the appearance of the Lord Jehovah, and redemption, and then was its morning or first rise; the second was its instruction, and then was its day or progression ; the third was its decline, and then was its evening or vastation: the fourth was its end, and then was its night or consummation. A. V. C. R. 6. The c. of the Lord in the earths cannot be otherwise than various and diverse. A. C. 3451. All things of the c., from the first degree to the last are s. by the cities of Judah, the circuit of Jerusalem, the land of Benjamin, the plain, the mountain. A. C. 4592. There is nothing of the c. without the conjugial union between good and truth, and unless the internal be in the external. A. C. 4899. The c. exists by virtue of the Word and acquires a nature and quality amongst men, according to their understanding of the Word. U. T. 243. In the most ancient c. there was immediate revelation, in the ancient c. revelation by cor., in the Jewish c. by a living voice, and in the Christian c. by the Word. A. C. 10.355. See Ancient and Most Ancient Church.
CHURCH-MILITANT, Lord’s church so called before regeneration. A. C. 59.
CHURCHES. In the ancient c. charity was the essential and principal of the church. A. C. 4680. The most ancient and ancient c. were in the land of Canaan. N. J. D. 5. All the four former and general c. were not in the truth of the knowledge and acknowledgment of the one God. U. T. 786. All things of the c. before the Lord’s advent were rep., because the Lord was rep. by angels. U. T. 109. The ancient and Christian c. were entirely the same as to their internal state, they only differed as to externals. A. C. 4772. There were three c. successively after the deluge. A. C. 1285. The seven c. s. all who are of the church in the Christian world and every one according to reception. A. R. 10, 41, 69. There were three c. which are particularly mentioned in the Word, viz., the first ancient church called Noah; the second ancient church called Eber; and the third ancient church which had its name from Jacob, and afterwards from Judah and Israel. A. C. 1327. Four c. have existed on this earth since the day of its creation ; viz., the first, called Adam; the second, called Noah; the third, called the Israelitish; and the fourth, called the Christian: after these four c., a new church arises, which will be the true Christian church, foretold in Daniel vii. 14, and in the Apocalypse, chap. xxi. and by the Lord himself in the Evangelists, which church was expected by the Apostles. U. T. 760, and A. V. C. R. 2.

CITIES den. the interiors of the natural mind; c., in the universal sense, s. the doctrinals of the church, but in the singular sense, they s. the interiors of man where doctrinals are, or rather where truths are conjoined to good; for the truths and goods appertaining to man form as it were a city, hence the man himself, in whom the church is, is called the city of God; the s. of a city is as the s. of a house; in the universal sense, a house s. good, but in a singular sense, it s. a man, and specifically his mind as to good and truth there conjoined, and a house, with its apartments, circumjacent buildings, and courts, is a city in the least form.

So long as man keeps his external c. the Lord cannot purify him from any concupiscence of evil in his spirit or internal man D. P. 120. The Word is said to be c. when it is understood only as to the sense of the letter, and when all that is assumed for doctrine, which is contained in the letter, and it is still more c. when doctrinals are formed therefrom which favor self-love and the love of the world. A. C. 3769.
CLOSETS (Luke xii. 3) s. the interiors of man ; viz., that which he thinks, intends, etc. A. C. 5194. The ancients compared the mind of man to a house, and those things which are within in man to c. The things contained in the mind are distinct, nearly resembling the distinction of a house into its c. (or chambers).

A. C. 7353.

A. C. 4145.
COLLECT, to store the memory with truths, and to c. them into unity. 679, 6112.

COLOR could not exist unless there were something obscure and something whitish. A. C. 1042. Obscurity itself is turned into c. by the shining of the rays of the sun. A. C. 1043. There are two c. fundamental of the rest, in the spiritual world, red and white. And so far as they partake of red, they s. good; and so far as they partake of white, they s. truth, because the heat of the spiritual sun is of a fiery red, and the light thereof, of a shining white. But black c. derive their origin from the hells, which are also two in number, one in opp. to white, which is with those who have falsified the truths of the Word, and the other in opp. to red, which blackness is with those who have adulterated the goods of the Word. A. R. 231. A. C. 9476. C. in the other life, are in their essence the variations, or the modifications of intelligence and wisdom. They derive their splendor from truth appertaining to intelligence, and their brilliancy from good appertaining to wisdom. A. C. 4530. C. in the spiritual world are modifications of celestial light, thus of the intelligence and wisdom which is with the angels in heaven. Ap. Ex. 576. There are c. in another life, and in heaven most beautiful, which were never seen here on earth. A. C. 1055, 1624.
COMB, to, the hair, s. to accommodate natural things that they may appear decent. Spirits can know from the hair, its color, length, and the manner in which it is spread, what, had been the quality of the natural life in the world. A. C. 5570. In the spiritual world there were seen some children, who were combed by their mothers so cruelly, that the blood flowed out, by which was rep. that such is the education of infants [in the Christian church] at this day. A. C. 2125.

The c. of the L. is not to destroy the visible heaven and the visible earth, and to create a new heaven and a new earth, according to the notions which many have heretofore entertained in consequence of not understanding the spiritual sense of the Word.

See Decalogue.
COMMENCEMENT s. a state when man begins to be instructed. 1560.
COMMERCE is a general good, when the love of it is the end, and that of money the means subservient. D. P. 220.
COMMIXION. Good and evil, and truth and the false are commixed, when evil and the false are in the spirit of man, but good and truth in his bodily actions and speech ; but this c. of good and evil, and of truth and the false is not the profanation of good and truth ; for profanation is only with those who first have received truth and good in faith and heart, and afterwards in faith and heart deny them. Ap. Ex. 519.
COMMON, every thing contains thousands of particulars, arid every particular thousands of singulars. A. C. 865.
COMMON PRINCIPLE. In all and singular things which exist, not only in the spiritual world, but also in the natural, a c. [or general] p. precedes, into which things less common, and finally particular things are afterwards successively inserted; without such insertion or infilling, nothing can possibly have inherence, for whatsoever is not in some c. [or general] p. and depends upon such principle, is dissipated. A. C. 5208.
COMMUNICATION of the divine, is by the divine human, and the c. of this is by divine truth ; otherwise c. would be impossible. A. C. 4724,6880. C. of man with heaven and the Lord is by the internal; when this is shut, man has only c. with hell. A. C. 10.698.

And hence it is said (Exod. xxviii. 11), that the onyx stones on the shoulders of Aaron’s Ephod should be set [encompassed] in ouches of gold, which s. that the good oi love should enter by influx into the truth of faith, and so in other instances. A. C. 115.

COMPASSION. To be moved with c. is to have mercy from love. 5691.
COMPEL. Man ought to c. himself to resist evil and do good. 1937. For a man to c. himself, is freedom. 1937.

CONCEPTION is the first period of the reception of the faith of heaven. A. C. 4904. The c. of man from his father is not a c. of life, but only a c. of the first and purest form receptible of life, to which as a stamen, or beginning successively accede in the womb, substances and matters in forms adapted to the reception of life, in their order and degree. D. L. W. 6. See Birth.
CONCLUSION, the divine, and determined execution of a thing, is providence. A. C. 5124. C. formed from objects under the first view of the external senses, are natural truths. A. C. 8861.
CONCUBINAGE was permitted formerly to external men of the church, for the sake of rep. the celestial church by a wife, and of the spiritual church by a concubine, and because such men were not principled in conjugial love. A. C. 3246. C., apart from a wife, when it is engaged in from causes legitimate, just, and truly conscientious, is not illicit C. S. L. 467. A concubine den. the Gentiles who are in idolatrous worship. A. C. 2867. Concubines (Gen. xxv. 6) s. the members of the Lord’s spiritual kingdom, for they are not sons born from the essential marriage of good and truth, but from a kind of covenant not so conjugial in its nature; they are indeed from the same father, but not from the same mother; i.e., they are from the same divine good, but not from the same divine truth, which is the characteristic of celestial men. A. C. 3246.
CONCUBINE OF ISRAEL s. good. 4802. See Billah.
CONCUPISCENCES are of the love of evil, and desires and affections are of the love of good. G. E. D. p. 124. C. with man are spiritual fires, which consume him in the life of the body. U. T. 328.

CONFESS, to, s. the Lord, the Word, doctrine thence der. the divine principle of love, and the Lord’s celestial kingdom. A. C. 3880.
CONFESSION, interior, is that of the heart, which exists in humiliation, and at the same time in the affection of good; but exterior c. is that of the lips, which it is possible may exist in a feigned humiliation and in a feigned affection of good, which in reality is no humiliation and affection at all. A. C. 2329. The oral c. of one God does not abolish the idea of three Gods. U. T. 173 C. of sins implies a perception of evils, a discovery thereof in ourselves, an acknowledgment of them, and a conviction of guilt proceeding from them, and self-condemnation in consequence of guilt. But this alone is not repentance. N. J. D. 160.
CONFIDENCE. There can be no c. of salvation except in the good of life. 2982. Genuine c. is der. from charity. 3868.
CONFIRMED. Every thing c. by the will, and at the same time by the understanding, is permanent to eternity; but not that which is only c. by the understanding. D. P. 318, 319. They who have c. themselves in faith separated from charity, falsify the whole Word. A. R. 136, 467.
CONFIRMATION, the light of, is a natural light, and not spiritual, and in the power of bad men to attain unto. A. C. 8780. There is a false light arising therefrom, and it appears to those who are in falses, as light, but it is the light of infatuation, which is of such a nature that it is converted into darkness on the flowing in of the light from heaven; and the light of their eyes is like that of owls and bats. A. R. 566, 695. They who confirm faith separate from charity, and yet live a life of charity, are those who are in intellectual c., and not at the same time in voluntary c.; but they who confirm the false of doctrine and live according to it, are those who are in voluntary, and at the same time in intellectual, c. The reason is, because the understanding does not flow into the will, but the will into the understanding. D. P. 318.
CONFIRMATIONS in first principles concerning God, cannot be taken away after death. U. T. 110. C. of evil by the thoughts, are called falses from the life of lusts. A. C. 4729. C. of evil, and what is false, are nothing else but removals of good and truth, and if they increase, they are rejections; for evil removes and rejects good, and what is false rejects truths. D. L. W. 268.
CONFIRMATORS are those who can make truths appear falses, and falses truths. C. S. L. 233.
CONFOUND, to (Gen. xi. 7), s. in an internal sense, not only to darken, but also to obliterate and dissipate, so that there remains no longer any truth. A. C. 1321.
CONFOUNDED or ashamed. (Zech. x. 5.) The riders on horses shall be confounded, s. the annihilation of ratiocinating argumentations and confirmations which are from the intellectual proprium of man. . Ap. Ex. 355.

CONGLUTINATION, how the deceitful are punished by. A. C. 960.
CONGREGATIONS, are pred. of truths. 4574. Opp. sense of falses. 6355.
CONGREGATION OF GOD (Ps. lxxxii. 1) s. heaven, and in the midst of the gods, s. among all the angels there, that is in the whole heaven. Ap. Ex. 313. Congregation of Jehovah (Deut. xxii. 30), s. heaven. A. C. 2468. Congregations, in the Word, are pred. of spiritual truths. Ap. Ex. 340.
CONIAH (King of Judah) and his seed s. the same as Satan and his seed; viz., the internal false principle. Ap. Ex. 768.
CONJOINED. No one can be c. to the essential Divine, by love and faith, without the divine human. A. C. 10.067. All are c. in another life, according to the love of good and truth from the Lord. A. C. 9378. Truth is c. with good when man perceives pleasure in doing well to his neighbor on account of truth and good, but not on account of himself and the world. A. C. 5340.
CONJUGAL is applied by Swedenborg to express the opposite to conjugial love; viz., the conjunctive principle of evil and the false. See C. S. L. 203.
CONJUGIAL LOVE is the conjunction of love and wisdom. C. S. L. 65. It is implanted in every woman from creation, and together with it, the love of procreating, which is determined to, and has its conflux into the procreated offspring, and from the woman is communicated to the men. C. S. L. 400. With those who are principled in love truly conjugial, conjunction of minds increases, and therewith friendship; but both friendship and conjunction of minds decrease with those who are not so principled. C. S L. 214. They who are principled in love truly conjugial, are continually desirous to be one man; but they who are not so principled, are desirous to be two. 215. They who are principled in love truly conjugial, in marriage have respect to what is eternal, but the case is reversed with those who are not principled in c. l. 216. C. l. resides with chaste wives, but still their love depends upon their husbands. 210. Its delights are the delights of wisdom; but those of scortatory love are the pleasures of insanity. 442. C. l. makes a man more and more a man (homo). 432, 433. It is the inmost heaven, through which the Lord insinuates c. l., the inhabitants thereof being at peace above all others; peace in the heavens is comparatively as the spring season in the world, which gives delight to all things; it is the celestial principle itself in its origin; the angels who inhabit there are the wisest of all, and from innocence appear to others as infants; for they love infants much more than their parents and mothers do; they are present with infants in the womb, and by them the Lord takes care that infants be nourished and perfected; thus they preside over those who are with child. A. C. 5052. C. l. is not the love of the sex, but the love of one of the sex. C. l. was the love of loves with the ancients who lived in the golden, silver, and copper ages. C. S. L. 73. C. l. derives its origin from the divine marriage of good and truth; consequently, from the Lord himself. A.C. 2728. C.l. dwells in the supreme region, in the midst of mutual love, in the marriage chamber of the will; and also in the midst of the perceptions of wisdom in the marriage chamber of the understanding, etc. The husband is in the marriage chamber of the understanding, and the wife in the marriage chamber of the will. C. S. L. 270. C. l. with its virtue, power, and delights, is to every one according to the study of genuine use in which he is. 207. True c. l. is heaven itself with man. A. C. 9961. C. l. opens the interiors of the minds of the married partners more and more. C. S. L. C. l. does not appertain to the male sex, but solely to the female sex, and from this sex is transferred into the male. 161, 223. C. l., which is genuine, cannot exist but between two, that is, in the marriage of one man and of one wife, and in no wise between more together. The men of the most ancient church, who were celestial, had only one wife. A. C. 2740. Matt. xix. 3-12. In c. l., the wife is the love of the husband’s wisdom, and the husband is the wisdom of her love. C. S. L. 75. During the implantation of c. l., the love of the sex inverts itself, and becomes the chaste love of the sex. 99. Conjunction is effected from the first days of marriage successively; and with those who are principled in love truly conjugial it is wrought more and more thoroughly to eternity. 162. Love truly conjugial may have place with one of the conjugial partners and not at the same time with the other. 226. C. l. has conjunction with the love of infants. 385. C. l. appertains to the internal or spiritual man, and hence this love is proper to man. 95. With man c. l. is in the love of the sex as a diamond in its matrix. 97. If the conjugial partners have lived in true c. l., when one of them dies, the spirit of the deceased cohabits continually with the spirit of the partner not deceased, and this even to the death of the latter, when they again meet and reunite, and love each other more tenderly than before. C. S. L. 321.
CONJUGIAL PRINCIPLE, the, is capable of being ingrafted into christians, and of being transplanted hereditarily into the offspring from parents who are principled in love truly conjugial, and hence both the faculty and inclination to grow wise in the things of the church and of heaven may become connate. C. S. L. 142.
CONJUGIAL SEMBLANCES. In the natural world where spiritual affections do not conjoin, there are given external affections, which assume a semblance of internal, and tend to consociate; hence comes apparent love, friendship, and favor, between conjugial partners. C. S. L. 272.
CONJUGIAL SPHERE, the, is what flows from the Lord through heaven, into all and singular the things of the universe, even to its ultimates. C. S. L. 222. This sphere is received by the female sex, and through that sex is transferred into the male sex.. Where love truly conjugial is, this sphere is received by the wife, and only through the wife by the husband. Where love not conjugial is, that sphere is received indeed by the wife, but not by the husband through her. C. S. L. 223-223.
CONJUNCTION, all, requires an object, and according to the quality of the object, c. is effected. A. C. 8705. C. with God and man is only given by the union of the divine and human natures in the Lord. U. T. 98. A. C. 2112. C. with God the Father is not allowable, but with the Lord, and by him with God the Father. U. T. 370-372. C. of the Lord with man is effected by truths of the Word, and by a life conformable to them. A. R. 883. No one can be conjoined to the Lord, except he immediately approaches Him, because the aspect which is of the understanding derived from the affection which is of the will, conjoins. A. R. 933. C. of the Lord with man, and reciprocal c. of man with the Lord, is effected by man’s loving his neighbor as himself, and loving the Lord above all things. D. P. 94. C. between the Lord and man is effected by all and every part of the Word, and herein the Word is marvellous beyond all other writings. R. C. 10.632-4. The c. and presence of the Lord and heaven is given in all the earths by the Word. U. T. 267, 268. C. with the Lord by the literal sense of the Word is in the affection of truth and its perception. S. S. 62. C. of the Lord with man, is the spiritual in the natural, and of man with God, is the natural from the spiritual. U. T. 369. The c. of the Lord with man is according to the state of his thought, and thence of his affection. A. C. 4211. C.of man with the Lord is not with his supreme divinity but with his divine human. A. C. 4211. The c. of man with heaven and hell, is not immediate, but mediate through spirits in the world of spirits. H. and H. 600.
CONJUNCTIVE PRINCIPLE. Divine celestial good is the essential c. p. of all things. A. C. 10.262.
CONNECTION. All things are continued in a chain of c. from first to last A. C. 9822. When the ultimates of the heavens have a c. with those who are conjoined to hell, then the light and intelligence of the angels of heaven is diminished. Ap. Ex. 744. There is a c. of all spiritual truths, which is like the c. of the viscera, organs, and members in man’s body. A. R. 916.
CONNUBIAL CONNECTIONS only are beneath heaven, which are entered into and put off. C. S. L. 192.

CONQUEROR, the celestial man is called a. A. C. 81.
CONSANGUINITIES. All relationship takes its origin from good. In the spiritual world, or in heaven, no other c. and affinities exist, than those of love to the Lord and love to the neighbor, or what is the same thing, of good. A father does not know a son or a daughter, nor a brother a brother or sister, nor indeed a husband a wife, unless they have been in similar good. They meet indeed when they first come into another life, but they are soon dissociated, for good itself, or love and charity, determines and assigns every one to his own society. A. C. n. 3815.
CONSCIENCE is formed in every man from the principles of his particular religion, according to his internal reception thereof. N. J. D. 130. C. is to do no evil in any manner to any person, and to do well to every one in every possible way. A. C. 1076. Real c. is the plane on which temptations operate. A. C. 762. They who have no c. do not know what it means. H. and H. 300. They, and they only, have c. who love God and their neighbor. A. C. 831. C. is that frame or fitness of subject which is accommodated to the reception of heavenly influx. N. J. D. 130. The Lord rules those who have no c. by external restraints. A. C. 1077. C. may be rendered more perfect in those who are in a particular illumination and clear perception of divine truths, than in those who are less illuminated, and whose perception is more obscure. N. J. D. 132. They who have no c. in this world cannot be endowed with c. in the other life; hence they who are in hell are in no anguish of c. for the evils they did in the world. A. C. 965. Man is endowed with a c. of what is good, and a c. of what is right; the former pertains to his internal man, and the latter to his external man. N. J. D. 134. C. was the new will and understanding given to the church called Noah. A. C. 431. Some are not aware that they are endowed with a principle of c. at the time they have it. A. C. 2380. They who do good from a natural principle and not from religion, have no c. A. C. 6208. C. is the acknowledgment of truth from an interior principle. A. C. 4015. C. is formed in the intellectual part of the spiritual, otherwise than in that of the celestial. N. J. D. 139. Cannot be first received in another life. N. J. D. 138. The Lord alone operates all good by means of c. A. C.4459.
CONSENT, to (Gen. xxxiv. 23), s. to condescend. A. C. 4490. C. is essential acknowledgment, whereby reception is effected. A. C. 3157. C. from the understanding and the will is required to form the conjunction of truth with good N. J. D. 23.
CONSOCIATION. All things are consociated most exquisitely, in the heavens, according to all the difference of love to the Lord, and of mutual love and of faith, originating therein; and in the hells, according to all the differences of lusts, and of fantasies, thence derived. A. C. 2449. In the hells, the evil spirits, although they appear by the light of heaven, to the angels, in the most hideous forms, yet amongst themselves they appear as men, and this is permitted for the sake of c. U. T. 281. C. are made in another life according to spheres. A. C. 6830.
CONSOLATION, all, is by good and from good. 2822.

CONSONANTS. The speech of celestial angels is without hard c. Exp. H. and H. 241.
CONSORT, or conjugial companion, the, of natural love, is science, of spiritual love, is intelligence; and of celestial love, is wisdom. A. R 351.

C. is treated of in the Word throughout, and the state which precedes is des. by vastation and desolation, which is succeeded by visitation. A. C. 2243. C., in the Word, is also called devastation and decision, which is effected by the deprivation of goods and truths, in consequence whereof man enters into evils and falses. A. R. 676.
CONSUMMATION OF THE AGE (which is commonly translated the end of the world) is the last time or end of a church, and the first of a new church. A. C. 4535. See Word.

CONTINUOUS, or CONTINUAL, is a term applied by the schoolmen to den. quantity or co-extension, whose parts are not divided, but joined and connected together, so as to leave no room to determine where one begins and the other ends; in which sense it is used by Swedenborg in C. S. L. 125. It is also used by him in some of his theological works, in contradistinction to the term discrete, as applied to degrees; the term c. being applied to degrees of purer and denser, higher and lower, greater and less, etc., whilst the term discrete is applied to what he calls degrees of altitude, where one is within another, as in the case of three degrees of the atmosphere. Glossary to C. S. L. See Discrete.
CONTINUOUS AND DISCRETE DEGREES. All and singular the things of both worlds co-exist from c., and at the same time d.,d. D. L. W. 185.
CONTRACTION of the spiritual degree exp. D. L. W. 254.

CORN den. good of the natural principle, also the good of truth which is in the natural principle ; which is truth in (he will and act. The reason why c. den. good, is because a field in the spiritual sense den. the church, and hence the things appertaining to a field, as seed, seedtime, harvest, standing c., grain, and also a spike or ear of c., besides wheat, barley, and several other specific kinds of grain, don. such things as appertain to the church; and the things appertaining to the church have all of them reference to good and truth.

CORNELIAN. See Precious Stones.
CORNER-STONE s. all divine truth upon which the church is founded; therefore also the Lord as to his divine humanity, because all divine truth proceeds from him. The builders who rejected that stone (as it is read in the evangelists), are they who are of the church, there, of the Jewish church, for with them there were nothing but vain traditions from the literal sense of the Word, in which the truths of the Word were falsified, and its goods adulterated. Ap. Ex. 417.
CORNER and EXTREMITY (Amos iii. 12) s. what is more remote. A. R. 137.
CORNERS, in an historical sense, s. the quarters in the spiritual world, but in a spiritual sense, all the truths and goods of the church. Ap. Ex. 417.

The four c. s. the four quarters or points of the compass, because c. s. quarters, therefore they s. all things; as all things relating to heaven or hell, or to goodness and truth.

CORPOREAL. Everyman is by birth merely c., and yet from c. he may become natural more and more interiorly, and thus rational, and at length spiritual. The reason why this is effected progressively, is because the c. principle is like the ground, wherein things natural, rational, and spiritual, are implanted in their order. C. S. L. 59, 447.
CORRESPONDENCE is the appearance of the internal in the external, and its rep. therein. A. C. 5423. The c. of forms or of rep. in the heavens in every manner is with divine celestial and spiritual things themselves. A. C. 9739. All and singular things in man cor. to the Lord. A. C. 4524. No distinct idea can be had of c., without a previous knowledge concerning heaven as the grand man. H. and H. 67. The spiritual things with which natural things cor., assume another appearance in nature, so that they are not distinguished, but seem incongruous and irrelative. A. C. 1887, 2396, 8920. The case with c., is almost like any one speaking a foreign language, and another instantly understanding the sense of the words, etc. A. C. 4337. C. is between those things which appertain to the light of heaven, and those things which appertain to the light of the world: that is, between those things which appertain to the internal or spiritual man, and those which appertain to the external or natural man, and rep. is whatever exists in the things appertaining to the light of the world, that is, whatever exists in the external or natural man, considered in respect to the things appertaining to the light of heaven, or to the internal or spiritual man. A. C. 3225. The c. of the universe in its three kingdoms, with all and singular things of man, is not with those things as substances, but as uses. D. L. W. 324. All things which cor., are likewise rep., and thereby significative, so that c. and rep. are united in one subject. A. C. 2890. No one can understand the internal sense of the Word, unless he is acquainted with the nature of c. A. C. 2895, 4322. All things which appear in heaven are according to c., and called rep. A. C. 3213-3226, 9576, 9577. There is a c. between all things in heaven, and all things in man. H. and H. 87-102. The things in man, which have the greatest life, cor. to those societies in the heavens which have the greatest life, and in consequence thereof the greatest happiness, as are those to which man’s external and internal sensories cor., and the things which are of the understanding and the will; but the things in man, which have lesser life, cor. to such societies in heaven as are in lesser life, as are those to which the cuticles cor., which encompass the whole body; also the cartilages and the bones, which support and sustain all things that are in the body; and also the hairs which spring forth from the cuticles. A. C. 5552. All c. is natural and spontaneous. H. and H. 262. The conjunction of the spirit of man with his body, is by the c. of his will and understanding with his heart and lungs, and their disjunction by the want of c. D. L. W. 390. From the c. of the heart with the will, and of the understanding with the lungs, may be known all things which can be known of the will and the understanding, or of love and wisdom, consequently, all that can be known of the soul of man. D. L. W. 394. Without c. with the grand man, that is, with heaven, or, which is the same, with the spiritual world, nothing whatever could exist and subsist. A. C. 5377. And unless there was a c. of man with heaven and through heaven with the Lord, he could not subsist a moment, but would flow out into nothing. A. C. 3628. There is a c. of sensual things with natural things, of these with spiritual things, of these with celestial things, and of celestial things with the divine of the Lord. A. C. 5131. Man is continually preserved in c. with heaven by the Lord, that he may, if he chooses it, be led from hell to heaven, and by heaven to the Lord. A. C. 4323. There is not given the least thing with man, with which there is no c. A. C. 4791. The first divine c. of love and wisdom is the fiery sun of heaven. D. L. W. 93. The following c. were derived from the ancient church to the gentiles, viz.: The sun, love. Apollo, the god of wisdom and intelligence, des. in a chariot and four fiery horses. Neptune, the sea, sciences in general. Pegasus, the birth of the intellectual principle, des. by a flying horse, who with his hoof burst open a fountain, where were virgins, who were the sciences. Horse, the understanding. Fountains, truths, also erudition. A. C. 2762, 3251. W. H. 4. The science of c. has been concealed since the time of Job, but is now made known. C. S. L. 532. By derivation from the ancients it is still a custom that kings, at their coronation, should sit on a silver throne, should be clad in a purple robe, be anointed with oil, should wear on their heads a crown, and carry in their hands a sceptre, a sword, and keys, should ride in royal pomp on a white horse, and under whose feet should be hoofs of silver, and should be waited on at table by the most respectable personages of the kingdom, etc. These ceremonies are called emblematical, from an entire ignorance of every thing relating to corespondency and rep. A. C. 4966. Whatsoever cor., this also s. N. J. D. 216. According to the quality of man’s c. with heaven, such he appears in another life in the light of heaven. A. C. 5377. C. are natural truths and the mirrors of spiritual truths. A. C. 9300. C. are rep. of spiritual and celestial things in natural. U. T. 204. By the knowledge of some c., a man may falsify the Word, by conjoining and applying them to the confirmation of particular opinions rooted in his mind. ” U. T. 230. The science of c., after the times of the Jewish church, was not disclosed to Christians, because in the primitive church they were persons of great simplicity, so that, had it been discovered, it would have been useless and unintelligible. S. S. 24. C., rep., and significatives are three distinct things. A. C. 2567. C., rep., and significatives conjoin the natural world to the spiritual. A. C. 7290.

C. s. the external things of the church, and palaces the internal things thereof. A. C. 3271. The memory and understanding are like the outer c. of a house. A. C. 9230. See Heavens, Temple.
COVENANT. Things internal are what appertain to a c., because they are effective of conjunction, but not things external, unless by things internal; things external were only signs of a c. or tokens of conjunction, whereby a remembrance of internal things might be excited, and thus conjunction might be effected by such internal things. A. C. 2037. C. (Ps. lxxxix. 34, 35) s. the divine good, and the declaration of the lips, the divine truth. A. C. 2842.

A. C. 367. C. of the calf (Jer. xxxiv. 18, 20), the c. s. conjunction, the calf, good; the calf, being divided into two parts, s. the good proceeding from the Lord, on one part, and the good received by men on the other, from whence there is conjunction.

C. of the day and night (Jer. xxxiii. 20-26) s. all the statutes of the Israelitish church, prescribed in the Word, by which there was conjunction with heaven and the Lord. They are called the c. of the day, in relation to the church in heaven; and the c. of the night in relation to the church on earth, and spiritual things are rep. and s. for heaven, but natural things are rep. and s. for the church. Hence, also, the c. of the day and night are in this chapter called the statutes of heaven and earth; and the c. of the night, is called the statutes [or ordinances] of the moon and stars. Ap. Ex. 532. See Token.
COVER. The reason why it is said (Deut. xxiii. 14, 15) that they were to c. their excrements, lest Jehovah God should see the nakedness of the thing and should return, was, because things c. and closed up den. all those places in hell where troops of [lascivious and unclean] spirits have their abodes; on which account also it is said, lest he see the nakedness of the thing.

CRAFT takes away the perception of good and truth. 5058.
CREATABLE. Love and wisdom, life, light, heat, and activity, considered in themselves, are not c. U. T. 40, 364, 471.
CREATE, FORM, and MAKE, to, s. to regenerate. A. C. 16. To c., f., and m. are three distinct terms of application. (See Isa. xliii. 7.) A. C. 88. To c., properly relates to man when he is created anew or regenerated; and to m., is used when he is perfected. To c. also relates to the spiritual man, and to m. to the celestial man. A. C. 472. In every thing created, there is a certain united image of the divine love and wisdom proceeding from the Lord. D. L. W. 47-51. Man is so created that the divine things of the Lord may descend through him even to the ultimates of nature, and from these may also ascend up to him again. A. C. 3702. Man created in the f. of God, has been changed into the f. of a devil. C. S. L. 153. All created things which are in the world are according to cor. A. C. 9272. All things are created by the living sun from the Lord, and nothing by the sun of this world, which is dead. D. L. W. 116.

D. L. W. 52. All created things in a certain image rep. man. D. L. W. 61. The uses of all created things ascend by degrees from ultimates to man, and through man to God the creator, from whom they proceeded. D. L. W. 65.
CREATION, all, proceeds from first principles to ultimates, and from ultimates to the first [cause] from whom it was derived. D. P. 56. There is no c. given, without order. U. T. 500 In order that an idea of c. may be formed, space and time must be removed from the thought. D. L. W. 155.

Jehovah could not have created the universe, unless he had been a Man. D. L. W. 285. For no one could be immediately created from the uncreate infinite, the esse, and the life itself. D. L. W. 4, 5. The Lord from eternity, who is Jehovah, created the universe and all things therein from himself, and not out of nothing. D. L. W. 282. The c. of the universe and of all things therein, is upheld by continual mediums. D. L. W. 303. No c. could have been effected unless there had been something of freewill in all created things. U. T. 499. C. of the universe is produced, as it were, from the influx of the divine of the Lord through an angel. D. L. W. 326. The end of c. exists in its ultimates, which is, that all things may return to the creator, and that there may be conjunction. D. L. W. 167. C. of heaven and earth, in the first chapter of Genesis, in a spiritual sense, des. the new c. or regeneration of the man of the most ancient church. Ap. Ex. 650. In the order of c. the. Lord governs what is last from what is first, and what is first from what is last; and this is the reason why he is called the First and the Last. A. C. 3702, 6040. At the c., when all things were pronounced by God to be good, the meaning was, that they all mutually cor. to each other; that is to say, nature and the world cor. with man and his mind, and the human mind cor. with the deity; so that there was no occasion for instruction, inasmuch as every thing subsisted in perfect harmony. H. H. Ex. 9.
CREATOR, of the universe. See Image. C. S. L. 479.
CREATURES s. those who are capable of being reformed. A. R. 290, 405.

The c. of the wine of anger (Jer. xxv. 15-17, 28), den. the false which gives birth to evil; the reason why the false which gives birth to evil is s., is because as wine intoxicates and makes insane, so does the false, spiritual intoxication being nothing else but insanity induced by reasonings concerning what is to be believed, when nothing is believed which is not comprehended, hence come falses and from falses evils, wherefore it is said, that they may drink and stagger, and be insane by reason of the sword which I shall send.

(Matt, xxiii. 26, Luke xi. 39), in the internal sense, s. the truth of faith, to cultivate which without the good thereof is to purge the exterior of the c., and especially when the interiors are full of hypocrisy, deceit, hatred, revenge, and cruelty, for in such case the truth of faith is only in the external man, and nothing at all thereof in the internal; and to cultivate and imbue the good of faith causes truths to be conjoined to good in the interior man, in which case even fallacies are accepted for truths, which is s. by purging first the interior of the c., and the exterior becoming also clean.
