H (the letter) involves infinity, because it is only an aspirate; hence it was added to the names of Abram and Sarai, that each might rep. the divine, or Jehovah. A. E. 38. U. T. 278. The letter H is the only one in the name of Jehovah which implies divinity, and s. I Am, or esse. 2010.

A. E. 704.
HAIR is occasionally mentioned in the Word, and it therein s. the natural principle, because h. are excrescences in the ultimate parts of man, as also the natural principle is in his rational principle, and the interiors thereof. 3301.

HALT. In the original tongue the h. is expressed by one expression, and he that halteth by another; and by h. in a proper sense, is s. they who are in natural good, into which spiritual truths cannot flow by reason of natural appearances and the fallacies of the senses; and in an opp. sense, they who are in no natural good, but in evil, which altogether hinders the influx of spiritual truth; whereas by one that h., in a proper sense, are s. they who are in natural good, into which common [or general] truths are admitted, but not particular and singular truths, by reason of ignorance; but in an opp. sense, they who are m evils, and thereby do not even admit common [or general] truths. 4302. See Lame.

To lay the right hand upon any one, when pred. of the Lord (as in Matt. xvii. 6, 7 ; Rev. i. 17, etc.), s. to inspire him with his life. The ground and origin of this is, because the presence of the Lord with man is adjunction, and so conjunction by contiguity, and this contiguity is nearer and fuller, in proportion as man loves the Lord, that is, does his commandments. A. R. 55. “Put thine h. in thy bosom” (Exod. iv. 7), s. the appropriation of divine truth. 6965. ” To place the h. upon the head ” (2 Sam. xiii. 19), s. that there was not any intelligence. A.

H. s. power; arms, still greater power; and shoulders, all power. 1085. Communication is produced by the touch of the h., inasmuch as the life of the mind, and thence of the body, exerts itself in the arms, and by them in the h.; hence it is, that the Lord touched with his h. those whom he restored to life and healed. A. R. 55. To hold up the h. (Exod. xvii. 11) s. faith looking towards the Lord. 8608.

Harps and all stringed instruments have respect to spiritual affections, and wind instruments to celestial affections. A. R. 792. Sound or speech descending from the inferior heavens is sometimes heard like the sound of harps, not that they are playing upon harps, but because the voice of confession of the Lord from joy of heart, is so heard below. A. R. 616.

HASTEN, to, or HASTINESS, in the internal sense, does not den. what is quick, but what is certain, and also what is full, thus every event, for h. involves time, and in the spiritual world there is not time, but instead of time there is state, thus the haste of time has relation there to such a quality of state as cor., and the quality of state which cor. is, that there are several things which are together efficient, from which results a certain and full event. 5284. To h., pred. of Joseph (Gen. xliii. 30), s. what bursts forth from the inmost, for it follows, because his compassions were moved, whereby is s. mercy from love; when this bursts forth, it bursts forth from the inmost, and this at the first striking of the eye, or at the first moment of thought, therefore, by hastening, nothing else is here s. but from the inmost. 5600.

HATCHET s. the intellectual proprium. 8942.
HATE, to (Gen. xxvii. 41), s. to be averse to. 3605.
HATRED is contrary to charity, and if it does not murder with the hand, yet it murders in mind, and by all possible methods, being only prevented from committing the outward act by outward restraints; wherefore all h. is blood. See Jer. i. 83, 34; and whereas h. is blood, all iniquity is blood; for h. is the fountain of all iniquities. Hosea iv. 2, 3, etc. 374.

Above the h. in heaven, are the celestial men of the most ancient church. 1115. Those who are in the h. in the grand man, which is heaven, are all in good above the rest; for they are in love, peace, innocence, wisdom, knowledge, etc., and consequently, in joy and happiness; these flow into the h., and into those things which are of the h. with man, and cor. to them. H. and H. 96. The h. of a man s. the all of his life; and the all of man’s life has relation to love and wisdom. A. R. 47, 534, 565.

HEAR, to, s. reception and perception, thence also influx, for the things which are received and perceived, flow in. 9926. To h. (Rev. ix. 21) s. the perception which is from the will of good, and thence obedience, because speech enters the ear together with sound; and the truths of the speech enter the understanding and thought, and the sounds, the will, and thence the affection. This originates from the spiritual world. A. E. 588. A. R. 87. To h. a voice, when pred. of the Lord (as in Gen. xxi. 17), s. to bring help. 2601. To h. a voice from heaven (Rev. xiv. 13) s. a prediction from the Lord. A. R. 639. Hearing the words of the prophecy of this book (Rev. xxii. 18) s. to read and to know the truths of doctrine. A.

HEAT (Rev. xvi. 9) s. the concupiscences of evils which are contained in self-love and the delights thereof. A. R. 692. H. does not exist in love itself, but from it in the will, and thence in the body. D. L. W. 95. Spiritual h. in its bosom contains all the inflnities of the Lord’s love. U. T. 365. Spiritual h. is truly h., which animates the bodies of the angels with warmth, and at the same time their interiors with love. 6032, 9383. Spiritual h. does not flow into man by three degrees, except so far as he shuns evils as sins and looks up to the Lord. D. L. W. 242. Spiritual h. kindles the will, and produces love, therein. A. R. 867. Infernal h., or fire, is changed into intense cold, by any influx of h. from heaven. H. and H. 572.
HEAT of the SUN (Rev. vii. 16) s. concupiscences to evil. A. R. 382.
HEAT and LIGHT, in the Word, s. love and wisdom. H. and H. 155, 488. H. and l. from the sun of heaven flow into the will and understanding of man, and produce the good of love and the truth of wisdom. I. 7. The l. of heaven, in its essence, is divine truth, and the h. of heaven, in its essence, is divine good, both proceeding from the Lord, as the sun there. A. R. 611. Natural h. and l. serve as a clothing and support to spiritual h. and l., whereby they may be conveyed to man. U. T. 75. Spiritual l. from the Lord discovers the thoughts which are of the understanding and faith, and spiritual h. discovers the affections which are of the will and love, and spiritual l. together with spiritual h. discovers the intentions or endeavors. A. R. 867.
HEATHEN, the time of the (Ezek. xxx. 3), s. the h., or wickedness. 488.
HEATHENISM, of the Christian world, is where the Word is taken away from the people, and replaced by human decisions. A. Cr. 22.
HEAVE OFFERING (Exod. xxix. 27) s. the divine celestial which is of the Lord alone, perceived in heaven and the church. 10.093.
HEAVEN is the love of the Lord, and the love of our neighbor. N. J. D. 237. H. is no other than the divine flowing from the divine. 10.098. H., before the advent of the Lord, was not distinguished into three h., but was one. 8054. H. is distinguished generally into two kingdoms, specifically into three h., and particularly into innumerable societies. H., as to all its cor., could in no wise exist, unless from the inhabitants of many earths. 6698. H. in the whole complex constitutes one man, and is therefore called the grand, or greatest man, and that from the divine humanity of the Lord. H. and H. 78, 86. H. is arranged into innumerable societies, all connected with each other, according to the differences of the affections, which are of love in general and in particular; each society is one species of affection, and there they dwell distinctly, according to the propinquities, and affinities of that species of affection, and they who are in the nearest state of propinquity in the same house; therefore cohabitation, when pred. of a married pair in a spiritual sense, s. conjunction by love. A. R. 883. H. is not confined to any particular place, but everywhere, with every one, where the divine being is present in is charity and faith. 8931. H. is in man, and is only so far an external place of abode, as it is an internal state of mind. 3884, 10.367. The Lord appears in h., both as the sun, and as the moon; as the sun, to those who are in the celestial kingdom ; and the moon, to those who are in the spiritual kingdom. 1053, 7078, 7173, 7270, 8812, 10.809. In h., no other divinity is perceived, but the divine human. 6475, 9267, 9303, 10.067. In h. there appear mountains, hills, rocks, valleys, and different kinds of earth, altogether like what we see here. 10.608. In h. there is a state of morning and evening, but not of night. 10.604. In h. there are marriages, as well as upon earth. H. and H. 366, 380. In h. there are administrations, offices, judicial proceedings both in greater and lesser cases, also mechanical arts and employments. C. S. L. 207. There are also writings and books in heaven. H. and H. 258. There is a h., in which are atmospheres of different colors, where the universal aura glitters as if it consisted of gold, silver, pearls, precious stones, of flowers in their least forms, and of innumerable things besides. 4528. There are two things by which h. is shut to the men of the church; the one is a denial of the Lord’s divine, and the other is a denial of the sanctity of the Word. G. E. D. p. 36. H. is said to be opened, when the interior sight, which is of the spirit of man is opened. H. and H. 171. They who receive h. in the world, come into h. after death. 10.717. When man is in h., he is without all solitude, restlessness, and anxiety, and thence he is in a state of blessedness. 8890. Few enter into h. immediately after death. 8029. All who come into h., return into their vernal youth, and into the powers appertaining to that age, and thus continue to eternity. C. S. L. 44. They who are not in the life of h., cannot bear the light of h., which is divine truth proceeding from the Lord there as the sun, much less can they bear the heat of h., which is divine love. A. R. 157. H. (Rev. xix. 14) s. the new Christian church; the reason why that h. is meant, is because it is the new h. treated of in the Apocalypse. A. R. 826. H. open (Rev. xix. 11) s. a revelation from the Lord, and consequent manifestation. A. R. 820. H. of h. which were of old (Ps. lxviii. 32) s. the wisdom of the most ancient church. 219. The lowest or first h., in the grand man, forms the inferior parts down to the feet, and also the arms to the fingers; for the arms and hands are the extremities of the body, though at the sides; hence also proceeds the distinction of three h. H. and H. 65. In the ultimate or first h., the Lord does not appear as a sun, nor as a moon, but only as light, which light far exceeds the light of the world. 6832. The ultimate h. consists of those who are in the obedience of doing the truths and goods which are commanded in the Word, or in the doctrine of the church in which they were born, or which they have received from a master, or governor, and according to which they have conscientiously acted. A. E. 443. The first h. which perished, was collected out of the whole human race, from the commencement of the Christian church till the last judgment. L. J. 29. The middle or second h. forms the breast, down to the loins and knees. H. and H. 65. The supreme or third h. in the grand man, forms the head to the neck. H. and H. 65. The inmost h. is the most perfect; the middle less perfect; and the first, or lowest, the least perfect. H. and H. 211. The new h. was formed of such Christians as acknowledged the divinity of the Lord in his human, and at the same time, had repented of their evil works. From this h. will descend the new church, which is the New Jerusalem. Preface to A. R. The new h. was formed of those who lived after the Lord’s first coming; this heaven is also distinguished into three h. A. R. 612, 876.
HEAVEN and EARTH s. in general, the internal and external church; and in particular, the internal and external, or the spiritual and the natural man. A. E. 751. A. C. 82. H. and e. in scripture, s. the h. and e. which angels and spirits inhabit, and in a spiritual sense, the church amongst men. H. and H. 221-227. A. E. 304. H.and e. (Ps.lxxxix. 13.) s. the superior and inferior h., also the church internal and external; the world and its fulness, h. and the church in general, as to good and truth. A. E. 60. H. and the e. finished, and all the host of them (Gen. ii. 1) s. that man was rendered so far spiritual, as to become the sixth day. 82. H. and the e. s. all the interiors of the church ; and sea and dry land, all its exteriors. (Hag. ii. 6.) A. E. 400. In h., upon e., and under the e. (Rev. v. 3), s. the three h. in orderly succession, from the highest to the lowest. A. E. 304.
HEAVENLY MARRIAGE is between the good of the natural man and the truth of the spiritual man. 3952.
HEAVENS, the, are things celestial and spiritual, and consequently, inmost things, both of the Lord’s kingdom in the h. and in the earths, or in the church, and also with every individual man, who is a kingdom of the Lord, or a church, consequently, the h. den. likewise, all things appertaining to love and charity, and faith grounded therein ; as also, all things appertaining to internal worship ; and in like manner, all things appertaining to the internal sense of the Word; all these things are h., and are called, ” The throne of the Lord.” 2162. The three h. are distinguished according to the degrees of wisdom and love. They who are in the ultimate h. are in the love of knowing truths and goods, they who are in the middle h. are in the love of understanding them, and they who are in the supreme h. are in the love of being wise. I.16. The first h. is the abode of good spirits, the second is the abode of angelic spirits, and the third is the abode of angels. 459. There are three h. in which the Lord appears as the moon, superior, middle, and inferior; or interior, middle, and exterior; but nevertheless, all in those h, are natural, for the natural is distinguished into three degrees, like as the spiritual. A. E. 708. The h. are expanses one above another, and everywhere there is earth under the feet. A. R. 200. Those things which are done in the h., are rep. in the world of spirits, by such like forms, as appear in the world. 4043. In the h., as well as on earth, there is the Word, temples, preachings, and the priesthood. A. R. 533. The superior h. and the inferior act as one by influx. A. R. 286. The ultimate h. are courts, and the interior h. are the house and temple of Jehovah. 9741. In the ultimate h. all those things which are seen and heard are rep. of such things as are thought and spoken by the angels in the superior h. 4043, 10.126.
HEAVENS, the ancient, were formed before the Lord’s first coming, and are above the new h.; all of which acknowledge the Lord alone to be the God of h. and earth. The h. communicate with the new h., by influx. A. R. 612, 617. The Christian h. is below the ancient h.; into this h. from the time of the Lord’s abode in the world, were admitted those who worshipped one God under three persons, and had not at the same time an idea of three Gods; and this by reason that a trinity of persons was received throughout the whole Christian world; but they who entertained no other idea of the Lord’s humanity than as of the humanity of another man, could not receive the faith of the New Jerusalem, which is, that the Lord is the only God in whom there is a trinity; these latter, therefore, were separated and removed after the last judgment. A. R. Preface.
HEAVENS, imaginary. It was permitted those who had lived in externals like Christians, but in internals were devils, to form themselves by fantasies, in the world of spirits, as it were h. in great abundance; these fictitious and imaginary h. before the last judgment were like dark clouds between the sun and the earth, consequently, between the Lord and the men of the church, therefore these h. were dispersed, and after the last judgment it was not allowable to form to themselves such h., but then every one was bound to the society to which he belonged. A. R. 701, 804, 865.
HEAVENS, the former, which passed away (Rev. xxi. 1) s. the societies of those in the spiritual world who were only in external or apparent good. A. E. 675.
HEAVENS and HELLS, the, are entirely separated, and as inversely situated with respect to each other as antipodes; therefore evils and falses cannot reach to the h. (see Rev. xviii. 5), but yet when evils and falses are multiplied beyond the degrees of opposition, and thence beyond a certain equal measure, the h. are infested, and unless the Lord then defends the h., which is done by stronger influx from himself, the h. suffer violence, and when this arrives at its height, he then executes the last judgment, and they are delivered. A. R. 701.
HEAVY. Falses are h. from the evil within them. 8279.
HEBREW, the. This term is used in the word when any thing of service is s., of whatever nature it be ; hence Abraham, in one passage only, is called the H., viz., Gen. xiv. because he rep. the Lord’s interior man, to which is adjoined the internal or divine man, and the interior man is such, that it serves the internal or divine man. 1702.
HEBREW BOY, a (Gen. xli. 12), s. the guiltless principle of the church, for b. s. a guiltless principle, and H., one who is of the church. 5236.
HEBREW CHURCH, the, was a church which succeeded that called Noah, and exercised a sort of holy worship which consisted in external rites; this church, in process of time, was variously deformed, and its external worship was changed into idolatrous worship, and then was its consummation. 2243.

(Gen. iii. 15) s. the literal or ultimate sense of the Word. A. E. 768. To lift up the h. against the Lord (Ps. xli. 10) s. to pervert the literal sense of the Word even unto the negation of the Lord, and to the falsification of every truth. Since the Word is divine truth, therefore, also this before the Lord is in image as a divine man; and its ultimate sense cor. to the h., and as this was perverted by the Jews by application thereof to their false traditions, therefore, this is s. by lifting up the h. against the Lord. A. E. 617. Beneath the h. of the foot at a great depth are situated the hells of the most deceitful, and of the modern Antediluvians. 2754. Beneath the h. backwards is the hell of those who are spiritual murderers and who fascinate to murder. 4951. Under the h. of the right foot is the hell where they inhabit who have taken delight in cruelty, and at the same time in adulteries, and have perceived therein the greatest satisfaction of their lives. 824.
HEIFER, the, whereby labor has not been done (Deut. xxi. 3) s. the innocence of the external man, which is in ignorance. 4503. The red h. (Num. xix.) s. unclean truth of the natural principle, which was made clean by burnings, and also by such things as are s. by cedar-wood, hyssop, and double-dyed scarlet; water therefrom rep. the means of purification. 5198. H., ram, and she-goat, each three years old (Gen. xv. 9), s. those things which are representative of the celestial things of the church; a h. of celestial things exterior, a she-goat of celestial things interior, and a ram of celestial things spiritual, the being three years old, was to imply all things appertaining to the church as to times and states. 1821. H., in a bad sense, den. falses. 5202.
HEIGHT s. the good and truth of the church in every degree. A. R. 907. A. C. 9489.
HEIR, an (Jer. xlix. 1), s. the good of Truth. A. E. 435. To become an h., or to inherit, s. life eternal in the Lord’s kingdom, or to be conjoined to the Lord. 1799. A. R. 890. H. (Gen.xv. 4) s. those who are principled in love. 1804. H. s. those who are in truths originating in good from the Lord. A. E. 1034.
HELL (Jonah ii. 3) s. the earth below. 247. H. cannot be known, unless the nature of evil is known. 7181, 4997. The diabolical h. cor. by opposition to the celestial kingdom; and the Satanic h., by opposition to the spiritual kingdom. D. L. W. 273. As there is the same number of societies in h., as in heaven, so there are as many different h.; for as every society in heaven is heaven in a lesser form, so every society in h. is h. in a lesser form, and as in the general division, there arc three heavens, so also three h., the lowest of which is respectively opp. to the inmost or third heaven; the middle h., to the middle or second heaven ; and the uppermost, to the first or lowest heaven. H. and H. 542. H. as well as heaven is necessarily under the Lord’s government. A. R. 62. H. and H. 536. Every one in h. is tormented by his love and its concupiscences. A. R. 864. All that are in h. speak only the false from evil. 1695, 7357. The h. are eternal workhouses or prisons. A. R. 153. The worst h. are in the west, they operate on the voluntary principle and all the affections appertaining thereto. 8593. The h. in their complex, or the infernals collectively, are called the devil and satan 694, 968.
HELMET OF SALVATION (Isa. lix. 17) s. divine truth from divine good by which salvation is effected. A. E. 557. See Shield.
HELP-MEET FOR HIM, a, or a HELP AS BEFORE HIM (Gen. ii. 18), s. proprium, but whereas the man of the church, who is here treated of, was good in temper or disposition, such a proprium was granted him, that it appeared like his own, wherefore it is called a help, as it were, before him [or with him]. 140.

HEREDITARY EVIL did not come from the first man upon all who live at this day, according to the common idea; but successively, from one generation to another. 313. All evils which man derives from his parents which are called h., remain in his natural and sensual man, but not in his spiritual man, from thence it is, that the natural man (homo) and the extremely sensual are opp. to the spiritual man; for the spiritual man from infancy is closed, and is only opened and formed by divine truths received in the understanding and will, and in proportion to the quality and extent of such opening and formation, the evils of the natural and sensual principle of man are removed, and instead of them, goods are implanted. A. E. 543. H. e. are those of the love of self and of the world. 694, 5660. Man does not suffer punishment in the other life on account of h. e., inasmuch as he is not in fault, but for his actual sins. 966.
HEREDITARY PRINCIPLES. There are two h. p. in man ; one derived from the father, the other from the mother, that from the mother is somewhat corporeal, which is dispersed during regeneration, but what man derives from the father remains to eternity. 1414.
HERESIES are ever attendant upon the true church, and the ground of h., is, the being intent upon some particular article of faith. 362, 863. Innumerable h. arise from the literal sense of the Word being separated from its internal sense. 10.402.
HERETIC. One who confirms himself in falses. D. P. 318.
HERITAGE of ESAU (Matt. i. 3) s. falses from evils, and dragons of the wilderness, mere falsifications from which they are derived. A. E. 750.

HETH(Gen. x. 15) s. the exterior knowledges of things celestial. 1199. Daughters of H. (Gen. xxvii. 46) s. affections of truth from a ground not genuine, here the affections of natural truth, because spoken of Jacob. 3620, 3688. Sons of H. (Gen. xxiii. 7) s. those who were of the new spiritual church. 2928.
HEWERS of WOOD (Josh. ix. 23, 27) in the Jewish church rep. those who place righteousness and merit in good works, and have thus attributed to themselves the effective power of salvation. 1110. Those who extirpate good. (Jer. xlvi. 22.) A. E. 1145. See Drawers of Water.
HIDDEKEL, the river (Gen. ii. 14), s. reason, or the clearness and perspicuity of reason. 118
HIDDEN THINGS. The science of the Egyptians, and especially the science of cor., are called the h. t. of gold and silver, and desirable things. (Dan. xi. 42.) A. E. 651.
HIDE, to, from the face of JEHOVAH GOD (Gen. iii. 8) s. to be afraid of the dictate of, or impression, as is usual with those who are conscious of evil. A. R. 222. To h. themselves in the dens and in the rocks of the mountains (Rev. vi. 15) s. to be in evils and in falses of evil, because they who in the sight of the world have pretended to be in the good of love, and yet were in evil, after death h. themselves in dens; and they who have pretended that they were in truths of faith, and yet were in falses of evil, h. themselves in rocks in the mountains; the entrances appear like holes in the earth, and fissures in mountains, into which they crawl like serpents, and h. themselves there. A. R. 338. It, is sometimes said in the Word, that the Lord h. his face from man, on account of his iniquities and sins, when nevertheless he never does so, inasmuch as he is divine love and mercy itself, and wills the salvation of all, wherefore he is present with all, even the most wicked, thereby giving them the liberty of receiving him; the above therefore is only an apparent truth. A. E. 412.
HIEROGLYPHICS. Whereas the ancient churches where rep., therefore the men of those churches made to themselves sculptured things and images of various kinds, which rep. and thence s. things heavenly, and the ancients were delighted with them on account of their s.; wherefore when they looked upon those things they were reminded of the heavenly things which they rep., and inasmuch as they were such as appertained to their religion, they used them in worship; hence came the use of groves and high places, and also of sculptured, molten, and painted figures, which they placed either in groves, or upon mountains, or in temples, or in their houses; hence in Egypt, where the science of rep., which is the same with the science of cor., flourished, they had images, idols, and sculptured things, whence also came their h. A. E. 827. See Correspondences, Egypt.

HIGH-PRIEST. H.-p. has respect to divine good. 6148.
HIGH-WAY, a, for the REMAINS of the PEOPLE left from ASSYRIA (Isa. xi. 16) s. a disposing into order. 842.
HIGHEST den. the inmost, because interior things, with man who is in space, appear as superior things, and exterior things as inferior; but when the idea of space is put off, as is the case in heaven, and also in the interior thought of man, then is put off the idea of what is high and deep, for height and depth come from the idea of space; yea, in the interior heaven neither is there the idea of things interior and things exterior, because to this idea there also adheres somewhat of space, but there is the idea of more perfect or imperfect state, for interior tilings are in a more perfect state than exterior things, because interior things are nearer to what is divine, and exterior things are more remote thence; this is the reason why what is highest (5146) s. what is inmost. D. L. W. 103.
HILLS s. the good of charity. 6435, 10.438.
HIN den. the quantum of conjunction. 10.262.

HIRAM, the Adullamite (Gen. xxxviii. 12), s. the false. 4854.
HIRAM (1 Kings x. 22) s. the nations without the church, amongst whom are the knowledge of good and truth. A. E. 514.

HIRELINGS. They who speak truth and do good, not from spiritual, but mere natural affection, and think continually concerning a reward, were rep. by h. in the Israelitish church. (See Exod. xii. 43, 45; Deut, xxiv. 14, 15; Mal. xxxv., etc.) They are also mentioned among the poor, the needy, the strangers, the fatherless, and the widows; they are also in the lowest heavens, and are there servants. They also are called h., who do not think of a reward in heaven, but in this world, on account of their good actions, but these are infernal. (See John x. 11, 13 ; Jer. xlvi. 20, 21, etc.; Isa. xvi. 14 ; xxi. 16.) A. E. 695.
HISTORICAL FAITH, whereby the sick were healed. A. E. 815.
HISTORICAL PARTS of the WORD are more obscure to man, with respect to the interior arcana contained therein, than the prophetical parts, by reason, that the mind is engaged in viewing and considering the historical subjects. 2176. All things contained in the h. p. of the W. are h. true, except what is written previous to the 12th chapter of Genesis, or rather to the time of Eber, which contains h. circumstances not literally true, but only rep. of truths, being things reduced to an h. form for that purpose. But from the 12th chapter of Genesis, h. truths and rep. are both united in the literal sense. 1401, 1540, 2607. Arcana are so delivered, in the h. of the W., in order that the W. may be read with delight, even by children, and the simple, to the intent that whilst they are in holy delight arising from the h. sense, their attendant angels may be in the sanctity of the internal sense, which sense is adequate to angelic intelligence, whilst the external sense is adequate to human intelligence; hence the consociation of man with the angels, which man is altogether ignorant of, only he perceives thence a certain principle of delight, wherein is a principle of holiness. 3982. See Angel.
HISTORY. The custom of the ancients, in speaking and writing, was such, that they marked out times and names, and thence framed a h. resembling a true one. 755.
HITTITE, in a good sense, s. the spiritual church, or the truth of the church; for the H. were among the upright Gentiles, who were in the land of Canaan. 2913, 3470. H. s. what is false, and Amorite what is evil. (Ezek. xvi. 45.) 289. H., Perizzite, and Rephaim (Gen. xv. 20), s. persuasions of the false. 1867.
HIVITES and JEBUSITES. The former rep. those who were in idolatry, but in which there was something of good, and the latter, those who were in idolatry, but in which there was nothing of good. 6860.

HOLD [den, or dungeon] (Rev. xviii. 2) s. hell, because they who are there are in confinement. A. E. 757.
HOLE and CLEFT of a ROCK, in scripture, s. the obscurity and false of faith. 10.582. The infernal spirits creep into h. and c. when the divine sphere about an angel touches them. H. and H. 488. A. R. 338.
HOLINESS and JUSTICE are the celestial principle of faith, uprightness and judgment are the spiritual principle thence derived. (Ps. xv. 1, 2.) 612.
HOLLOW of the THIGH den. where there is conjunction of conjugial love. “And the, h. of Jacob’s t. was out of joint in his wrestling with him” (Gen. xxxii. 25), s. that as yet, truth had not ability to conjoin itself altogether to good, for to be out of joint den. that as yet truths were not arranged in that order, that they altogether with good could enter celestial spiritual good. 4277, 4278.
HOLON, JAHZAH, MEPHAATH, DIBON, NEBO, BETHGAMUL, BETH-DIBLATHAIM, KlRIATHAlM, BETH-MEON, KERIOTH, BOZRAH (Jer. xlviii. 21-26), s. the kinds of the false principle, whereby they who are called Moab and Ammon adulterate goodness and extinguish truths, 2468.
HOLY is pred. concerning divine truth, hence the church is called a sanctuary, for the Latin word for h. is sanctus, from which sanctuary is derived. A. E. 204. A. R. 666. middle heaven. 9680.
HOLY OF HOLIES, the, rep. the very essential divine good and truth in the Lord’s divine human, whereunto truth from the human was conjoined ; the same thing was s. by the golden altar, the table for the shew-bread, the candlestick, the propitiatory, the ark, and most intimately by the testimony. 3210. The glorification of the Lord’s humanity even till it became the divine good which is Jehovah, is des. in the internal sense, by the process of expiation, when Aaron entered into the h. of h., within the veil (Exod. xvi.), and in the respective sense, by the same process is des., the regeneration of man, even unto celestial good, which is the good of the inmost heaven. 9670. See Veil.
HOLY and JUST. They are called h., who are in the Lord’s spiritual kingdom, and they are called j., who are in his celestial kingdom. A. E. 325. H. is pred. of what is true, and righteous or just, of what is good. A. R. 173.
HOLY and TRUE. (Rev. iii. 7.) The Lord is called h., because all charity is derived from him, and t., because all faith is from him also. A. E. 204.
HOLY SPIRIT, the, is divine truth, and also divine virtue and operation proceeding from one God in whom is a divine trinity, consequently, proceeding from the Lord God the Saviour. U. T. 139. The divine virtue and operation s. by the h. s., consists in general, in reformation and regeneration, and in proportion as these are effected, in renovation, vivification, sanctification, and justification; and, in proportion as these are effected, in purification from evils, remission of sins, and, finally, salvation. U. T. 142. The divine virtue and operation s. by the mission of the h. s., with the clergy in particular, consists in illumination and instruction. U. T. 146. H. s., holy divine, or divine proceeding, is not a person by himself, because the Lord is omnipresent. A. R. 666, 962. The h. s. is the divine presence of the Lord. A. R. 949. The h. s. proceeds from the divinity in the Lord, through his glorified humanity, which is the divine humanity, comparatively, as all activity proceeds from the soul through the body in man. A. R. 962. The sin against the h. s. is the denying the Lord’s divinity and the sanctity of the Word, and confirming these to the end of life. D. P. 98, 99. See Blasphemy,
HOLY SUPPER, the, is the primary part of external worship. 2811.
HOMER, or MEASURE, den. a sufficient quantity. 8468.
HOMICIDES s. the extinction of the understanding of truth, and the perception of good. A. E. 589.
HONESTY and DECORUM. H. is the complex of all moral virtues, and d. is the form thereof. 2915.
HONEY s. the delight which is derived from good and truth, or from the affection thereof, and specifically the external delight, thus the delight of the exterior natural principle; inasmuch as this latter delight is of such a nature, that it comes from the world through the things of sense, therefore the use of h. was forbidden in the meat offerings. H. den. delight, because it is sweet, and every thing sweet in the natural world cor. to what is delightful and pleasant in the spiritual; the reason why it is said the delight thereof, viz., the delight of truth derived from good in the exterior natural principle, is, because every truth, and especially every truth of good, has its delight, but a delight arising from the affection of good and truth, and from consequent use. 5620. H. (Deut. xxxii, 13) s. the pleasantness and delight derived from the affections of knowing and learning goods and truths celestial and spiritual. 5620. H. (Isa. vii. 14, 15) s. that which is derived from the celestial principle of the Lord. 2184. H. (Ezek. iii. 3) den. the delight of truth divine as to the external sense ; for truth divine as the Word in the external form, or in the literal sense, is delightful, because it suffers itself to be explained by interpretations in every one’s favor; but not so the internal sense, which is therefore s. by the bitter taste, for this sense discovers man’s interiors. The reason why the external sense is delightful, is, as was said, because the things appertaining to that sense, may be explained in every one’s favor, they being only common [or general] truths, and such is the quality of common [or general] truths before they are qualified by particulars, and these by singulars. It is also delightful, because it is natural, and the spiritual principle conceals itself deep within; it must likewise be delightful to the intent, that man may receive, that is, that he may be introduced, and not deterred at the threshold. 5620.
HONEY and OIL. (Ezek. xvi. 3.) H. s. good natural or of the external man; and o., spiritual good, or good of the internal man. A. E. 617. See Milk and Honey.
HONEY-COMB, the, and the BROILED FISH, which the Lord ate with his disciples after his resurrection, s. the external sense of the Word; the fish, as to the truth thereof, and the h.-c., as to its pleasantness. 5620.
HONOR s. the good of love. 8897. To h. (Isa. xxiv. 15) s. to worship and adore. A. E. 406. H. thy father and thy mother (Exod. xx. 12), in a spiritual sense, s. to revere and love God and the church ; and in a celestial sense, by father is meant our Lord Jesus Christ, and by mother, the new church. U. T. 306. The h. of Carmel and Sharon (Isa. xxxv. 1, 2) s. divine good, which the Gentiles should receive. A. E. 288. H. is pred. of worship from good, and fear of worship from truth. (Mal. i. 6.) A. E. 696. H., virtue, and might (Rev. vii. 12) s. the divine celestial things of the Lord. A. R. 373. To be honored above all (Gen. xxxiv. 19) s. what is primary. 4476.

HOOK in the NOSE, a (Isa. xxxvii. 29), s. stupidity and foolishness; for n. s. perception, and h. its extraction, properly immersion in the sensual corporeal principle. A. E. 923. See Pruning Hooks.
HOPE, the, and victory of those that undergo temptations. 6574.
HOREB, Mount, s. the quality of the divine good of love, that was to appear, and this quality appears from the things which were there seen (Exod. iii.) viz., “from the flame of fire out of the midst of the bush;” thus it is the divine good of love shining forth by truth which is of the divine law. 6830. Mount H. s. divine truth in externals, for H. was a mount round about Mount Sinai, which s. divine truth. 10.543.
HORITES (Gen. xiv. 6) rep. those who are principled in the persuasions of what is false, grounded in self-love. 1675.
HORN, when spoken of the Lord, s. omnipotence. A. R. 270. The little h. that rose up (Dan. vii. 3-8) s. the plenary perversion of the Word, by the application of its literal sense to the confirmation of the love of dominion, but it is called little, because such perverted application is not sensibly apparent to the understanding of man, or to the sight of his spirit. A. E. 316. H. s. the power of truth from good, and ten h. much power. 2832. A. R. 539. H. (Rev. xiii. 11) s. power in speaking, teaching, and writing, consequently, in reasoning and arguing. A. R. 595. Because h. s. truths from good, which s. was known to the ancients, it was customary to make h. budding forth and fragrant, whence came the expression cornucopia. A. E. 316.
HORNS of IVORY and EBONY (Ezek. xxvii. 15) s. exterior good things, such as relate to worship or rituals. 1172. H. of the unicorns (Ps. xxii. 21) s. truth as to its fulness and power. A. E. 316.
HORNETS (Exod. xxiii. 28) s. falses of a tormenting and destructive kind, striking with formidable terror, or the dread of those who are in falses. 9331.
HORROR. Temptations are permitted in order that states of h., at evils and falses may be induced and a conscience formed. 1692.
HORSE s. knowledges or understanding of the Word and in an opp. sense, the understanding of the Word falsified by reasonings, and likewise destroyed, as also self-derived intelligence. A. R. 298. Meditation from the Word appears in the spiritual world as a h., lively, as a man thinks spiritually, but dead, as he thinks materially. A. R. 611. A dead h. s. no understanding of truth from the Word. A. R. 225. A pale h. s. all understanding of the Word destroyed utterly both as to good and truth. A. R. 320. A red h. s. the understanding of the Word destroyed as to good; and a black h., the understanding of the Word destroyed as to truth ; but a white h. s. the understanding of the Word as to truth and good.

HOUSE, in the Word, is of extensive s., but what it s. in particular may appear from those things whereof it is pred, 1488. H., in the internal sense, is the natural mind, for the natural mind, as also the rational mind, is like a h., the husband therein is good, the wife is truth, the daughters and sons are the affections of good and truth, also the goods and truths which are derived from them as parents; the maid-servants and men-servants are the pleasures and scientifics which minister and confirm. 4982. H. s. celestial good, which is of love and charity alone. 2331. H. s. the church, and in the inmost universal sense, the universal kingdom of the Lord. 3720. H. (Gen. vii. 1) s. the will-principle. 706. H.

The great h. and the little h. which the Lord will smite (Amos vi. 11) s. the learned and the unlearned man. A. E. 519. When the subject treated of is concerning the celestial man, by h. is s. celestial good, and by field, spiritual good ; but when the subject treated of is concerning the spiritual man, by h. is s. the celestial principle appertaining to him, which is the good of charity towards the neighbor, and by field the spiritual principle appertaining to him, which is the truth of faith; the former and the latter are s. in Matt. xxiv. 17, 18. 4982. To build a h. (Deut. xx. 5, 8) s. to restore the church; the like is s. by planting a vine, in this passage, but h. relates to good, and vine to truth. A. E. 731. H. of brethren (Gen. xxiv. 27) s. good wherein truth is grounded. 3124. H. of my father (Gen. xx. 31) s. the good of delight arising from the appearances of scientific and rational things. 2559.

And in Gen. xli. 51, den. hereditary evils. 5353. H. of my father, and the land of my nativity (Gen. xxiv. 7), s. the Lord’s maternal human, which he expelled. 3036. H. of God, in the internal sense, s. the church, and in a more universal sense, heaven; and in the most universal sense, the universal kingdom of the Lord; but, in a supreme sense, it s. the Lord himself as to the divine human. The h. of God also s. the Lord’s celestial church; and, in a more universal sense, the heaven of the celestial angels; and, in the most universal sense, the Lord’s celestial kingdom ; and, in the supreme sense, the Lord as to divine good. 3720. A. E. 204. H. of God (Gen. xxviii. 17) s. the Lord’s kingdom in the ultimate principle of order. 3720.

All things in man refer to one h., and good and truth constitute one h., like husband and wife. 3020, 4973. In heaven there is a new h. for every novitiate angel. A. R. 611. It is frequently the case with persons, on their first arrival in the spiritual world, to have a h. provided for them, similar to that which they lived in when in this world. U. T. 797. H. full of every good (Deut. vi. 11) s. all things which are of wisdom. A. E. 638: H. s. goods, and palaces the goods of truth of a nobler degree. (Ps. xlviii. 14.) A. E. 453.

HUMAN ESSENCE of the LORD, the, was only an additament to his divine, which was from eternity. 1461.
HUMAN. The Lord assumed the h., that he might put himself in power of subjugating the hells, and reducing all things to order, as well in the heavens as in the earths. This h. he superinduced upon his former h.: the h. which he superinduced in the world, was like the h. of a man in the world; yet both were divine, and therefore infinitely transcending the finite h. of angels and men; because he fully glorified the natural h., even to its ultimates, therefore, he rose again with the whole body, otherwise from any man. D. L. W. 221. The h. of the Lord was made divine, when he received the father’s love into the h. 6872. When the h. of the Lord was made divine, it was no more an organ, or recipient of life, but life itself. 2658. The h. of the Lord was divine truth, when he was in the world. N. J. D. 303. The glorified h. of the Lord could not be conceived like h., but like divine love in a h. form. 4735. The h. of the Lord is called the son of God which mediates, intercedes, propitiates, and expiates. U. T. 135. The h. of the Lord from the mother was like the h. of another man, and consequently, material. L. 35. The h. which the Lord took from the mother by nativity, was such as was capable of being tempted, for it was polluted with evil hereditary from the mother. 5041. The h. which the Lord derived from the mother, he altogether put off, and put on the divine h. when he passed out of the world. 2288. The Lord successively and continually, even to the last period of his life in the world, when he was glorified, separated from himself, and put off that which was merely h.; viz., what he derived from the mother, till at length he was no longer her son, but the son of God, as well with respect to nativity, as to conception, and thus became one with the father, and himself Jehovah. 2649, 2159.
HUMAN FORM. The divine being is worshipped under a h. f., by most in the universe of worlds, which is by virtue of influx from heaven. 10.159. The first rudiment of the h. f., or the h. f. itself, with all and every thing appertaining to it, is from principles continued from the brain through the nerves; this form it is, into which man comes after death, and which is then called a spirit and an angel, and which is in all perfection a man, but spiritual: his material form which is added and superinduced in the world, is not a h. f. from itself, but from the above spiritual form; being added and superinduced, in order that man may perform uses in the natural world, and also carry along with him, from the purer substances of the world, some fixed continent for spiritual things, and so continue and perpetuate his life. It is a tenet of angelic wisdom, that the mind of man, not only in general, but in every particular, is in a perpetual effort, tending to the h. f., because God is a man. D. L. W 388.
HUMAN INDUSTRY, the products of, are cor. H. and H. 104.
HUMAN PRINCIPLE, the, with every man, commences in the inmost of his rational principle. 2194. There are two principles which properly constitute the h. p., viz., the rational and the natural. 3245.
HUMBLE. The Lord continually humbles the proud, and exalts the h. D. P. 183.
HUMILIATION is the essential of divine worship. 8271. The first principle of h. on man’s part, is to acknowledge, that of himself he is nothing but what is evil and false. 4779. When man is in a state of h. from self-acknowledgment, he is in a state of reception of good and truth from the Lord. 4956.
HUNDRED, a (Gen. xxi. 5), s. a full state of unition. 2636. A h. years (Gen. xi. 10) s. the state of the church in general. 1332. A h. years (Gen. xvii. 17) s. that the rational principle of the Lord’s human essence should be united to the divine. 2075.
HUNDRED and FIFTY, a (Gen. vii. 24), s. a term last and first; here, the last term of the most ancient church. 812. A h. and f. days (Gen. viii. 3) s. the term of fluctuation, and of a new life. 849.
HUNDRED and FORTY-FOUR THOUSAND SEALED out of the TWELVE TRIBES OF ISRAEL s. all who acknowledge the Lord to be the God of heaven and earth, and are in truths of doctrine originating in the good of love from him, through the Word. For by the number 144,000, the same is s. as by 12, because it arises by multiplying 12 into 12, and then by multiplying it by 100, and by 1000: and any number whatsoever multiplied into itself, and then multiplied by 10, 100, or 1000, has the same s. as the original number; therefore, the number 144,000 s. the same as 144, and this last the same as 12, because 12 multiplied by 12 makes 144; in like manner, the 12,000 sealed out of each tribe, being multiplied by 12, make 144,000. A. R. 348. A h. and f.-f. t. s. o. of the t. t. of I. (Rev. xvi. 1) s. the angels of the superior heavens, who are all in the good of celestial love. A. R. 631.
HUNGER, or FAMINE, s. evils of life. A. R. 323. To h. s. to desire good from affection, because bread, in the internal sense, is the good of love and of charity, and food, in general, is good. 4958. To h. (Isa. viii. 21) s. to desire knowledge. A. E. 386. To h. s. to desire good, and to thirst s. to desire truth. A. R. 889. H. and thirst, when pred. of the Lord, s. the inclination and desire of his divine love, for the salvation of the human race. A. E. 386. Spiritual h. and thirst is the affection and desire towards good and truth. A. E. 617.
HUNGRY and AFFLICTED (Isa. lviii. 10) have reference to those who desire good and truth. A. E. 750.
HUNT, to, s., in general, to persuade, and in particular, to captivate and ensnare men’s minds, by flattering them in the pursuit of the things of sense, such as sensual pleasures and lusts, and by applying doctrinals which they explain at their pleasure, according to their own tempers, or those of others, with a view to their own self-exaltation, or the aggrandizement of wealth; and such persuasion too commonly prevails among those who are principled in faith separate from charity. 1178. H. (Gen. xxv. 27) s. truths appertaining, to the natural man, from which are derived goods, or sensual and scientific truths; for h., in an extended sense, den. those things which are taken by h., as rams, kids, goats, etc., which den. spiritual good; and also because the arms used in h., which were quivers, bows, and darts, den. doctrinals of truth; hence it is, that to h. den. to teach from the affection of what is true, in a good sense. 3309. H. s. the good of life derived from natural truths. 3313.
HUR s. the truth of doctrine. 9424.
HURT, to (Rev. vi. 6), s. to violate and profane. A. R. 316. To h. (Rev. ix. 4) s. to pervert the truths and goods of the church, by crafty ratiocinations from sensual scientifics and fallacies. A. E. 581. To be h. of the second death (Rev. ii. 11) s. to sink under evils and falses from hell. A. R. 106.
HUSBAND (Gen. iii. 16) s. the rational principle. 265. H. (Ezek. xvi. 45) s. the Lord, and all that is celestial. 289. H., in the Word, s. good, and wife, truth. It is otherwise when h. is called man (vir) ; in this case man s. truth, and wife, good. 2509, 2510, 2517, 2533. H. and wife s. truths in conjunction with goodnesses. 718. The h. does not rep. the Lord, and the wife the church, because both together, the h. and his wife constitute the church. C. S. L. 125. In the heavens, two conjugial partners are there called two, when they are called h. and wife, but one, when they are named angels. C. S. L. 177.
HUSBANDMAN (Amos v. 16) s. the man of the church, because field, s. the church as to the implantation of truth. A. E. 652. H. (Joel i. 10, 12) s. worshippers. 368.

HYACINTHINE, or COLOR of JACINTH s. intelligence derived from spiritual love, because that color partakes of the redness of fire, and the whiteness of light; and fire s. love, and light, intelligence; this intelligence is s. by h., or blue, in the coverings and veils of the tabernacle (Exod. xxvi. 31, 36.) A. R. 450.
HYDE, or SKIN, den. external truth. 6402.
HYPOCRISY and ERROR. (Ps. xxxii. 6.) To do h., and to speak e., is to do evil from the false, and to speak the false from evil. A. E. 238.
HYPOCRITE, a, in the spiritual world, when he comes into the company of the wise, either goes away, or retires to a corner of the room, and makes himself invisible, and sits silent. A. R. 290.
HYSSOP (Exod. xii. 22) s. external truth, which is a medium of purification ; also external good. (See Num. xix. 6, 18.) 7918. See Vinegar.
H (the letter) involves infinity, because it is only an aspirate; hence it was added to the names of Abram and Sarai, that each might rep. the divine, or Jehovah. A. E. 38. U. T. 278. The letter H is the only one in the name of Jehovah which implies divinity, and s. I Am, or esse. 2010.
