JABAL. The father of such as dwell in tents and of cattle (Gen. iv. 20) s. doctrine concerning the holy things of love, and the good things thence derived, which are celestial. 412.
JABBOC (Gen. xxxii. 22) s. the first insinuation, because it was a boundary of the land of Canaan; and all the boundaries of that land were significative of the celestial and spiritual things of the Lord’s kingdom, according to distance and situation. 4270.
JACINTH s. intelligence from spiritual love, and, in an opp. sense, intelligence from infernal love, which is self-derived intelligence. A. R. 450.
JACOB rep. the Lord’s exterior man. 1950, 2083. J., in the supreme sense, in general, rep. the Lord’s divine natural; but, whereas, when the Lord glorified his natural, it was other in the beginning, than in the progress, and in the end: therefore, J. rep. various things, viz., in the beginning, the Lord’s natural as to truth; in the progress, the Lord’s natural as to the good of truth; and in the end, as to good. 4538. J. rep. the Word, as to the literal sense. 3712. J. (Gen. xxxiii.) s. the universal of all principles as to truths. 4352. J. (Gen. xxvii. 19) s. natural truths. 3548. The doctrine of the church. A. R. 137. J. rep. that good which the Lord procured to himself by his own proper power, and this is the good which he conjoined to the divine good; thus he made the human in himself divine. 4611. J., as a father, rep. the Jewish religion derived from the ancient church. 4738. J. (Gen. xxxiv. 5) s. the ancient external church. 4439. By the excellency of J., and by his palaces, which Jehovah hates (Amos vi. 8), is s. the love and faith of the false, among those who are of the church; by pride or excellency, the love of the false, and by palaces, those falses themselves, which are called palaces, because they are of pride. A. E. 675. The names of all the sons of J., s. universal principles of the church. 3861. The sons of J. s., in general, all things which are in the Lord’s divine natural. 4610. The ten sons of J., from Leah, s. the truths which are of the external church; and the two sons of J., from Rachel, s. the truths which are of the internal church, as is evident from this: that Leah s. the affection of exterior truth, and Rachel, the affection of interior truth. 5409. Temptations, and combats in temptations were the means whereby the Lord made his human divine, and temptations and victories in temptations are what make man spiritual, therefore, J. was first named Israel when he had wrestled: “Thy name shall not any longer be called J., but Israel, because, as a prince thou hast contended with God and with men, and hast prevailed.” See 4286. See Bed.
JACOB and ESAU s. faith and charity; J., faith or truth; and E., charity or good. 367.
JACOB and ISRAEL. By J. is s. the external of the church; and by I., the internal thereof. 4286. J. specifically rep. the intermediate principle, which communicates with the external and with the internal; thus by the external with those things which are in the natural world, and by the internal with those things which are in the spiritual world ; this natural principle is what J. specifically rep., and the internal natural is what I. specifically rep. 4570. J. is taken in each sense by the prophets; in one, when the Jewish church is s. in its perverted state; in the other, when the true external church of the Gentiles is s. When the internal is s. it is called I. 422. J. and I. (Jer. xxx. 9, 10) s. those who are in goods and truths within the church. A. E. 677.
JACOB’S LADDER. By the truths which were of man’s infancy and childhood, the angels of God, as by a l., ascended from earth to heaven; but afterwards by truths appertaining to his adult age, the angels of God, as by a l., descend from heaven to earth. 3701. See Ladder.
JACOB’S WELL s. the Word. S. S. 2.
JAESER s. those who explain the Word to favor the loves of the world. A. E. 911.
JAH (Ps. cxxii. 4) s. the Lord as to divine truth. A. E. 431. Tribes of J., truths from good. A. E. 431. The song J. s. the celebration and glorification of the Lord. A. E. 326. The reason why J. den. the divine truth proceeding from the divine human of the Lord, is because J. is from Jehovah, and is called J. because it is not the esse, but the existere from the esse, for divine truth is the existere, but the divine good is the esse. 8267.
JAMES the APOSTLE rep. those who are in charity, and in the abstract, charity itself. A. R. 5, 356, 790.
JAMES den. faith, charity, and the goods of charity. Preface before 2135. Sec Peter, James, and John.
JAPHET. They who are s. by J. constitute the external church, cor. to the internal. 1083.
JAREB, king. (Hosea v. 13.) By the Assyrian and King J. is s. the rational principle, perverted as to good, and as to truth. A. E. 962.
JARED (Gen. v. 15) s. a sixth church from Adam. 510.
JASER s. false principles. 2468.
JASHER, the book of (Josh. x. 10, 12,13, and 2 Sam. i. 17, 18), is contained in the ancient Word, which was extant in Asia, before the Israelitish Word, and which is preserved to this day among the people who inhabit Great Tartary. A. R. 11.
JASPER STONE, inasmuch as it is white, s. the things appertaining to the truths of wisdom. A. R. 231. J. s. s. the divine truth of the Word in its literal sense, translucent from the divine truth in its spiritual sense. A. R. 897.
JAVAN and JUBAL (Isa. lxvi. 18, 19) den. true internal worship. 1151.
JAVANITES, sons of the (Joel iv. 6), s. worship in externals, separate from what is internal. 1151.
JAWS, the (Isa. xxx. 28), s. thoughts from the sensual corporeal principle, thus from fallacies. A. E. 923.
JAW-BONE (Matt. v. 38) s. the perception and understanding of interior truth; the right j.-b. the affection and thence perception thereof; and the left j.-b. the understanding thereof. A. E. 556.
JAZER, SIBMAH, HESHBON, and ELEALEH. (Isa. xvi. 9.) By J., the vine of S., and by H. and E., are s. the men of the external church, who explain the Word to favor worldly love. A. E. 911.
JEALOUS, or ZEALOUS (Gen. xxx. 1), s. somewhat of indignation. 3906. See Indignation.
JEBUSITES, AMORITES, GIRSHASHITES, HIVITES, ARKITES, SINITES,ARVADITES, ZEMARITES, and HAMATHITES (Gen. x. 16-18), s. different kinds of idolatry, or of falsities and evil lusts. 1205.
JEBUSITES s. what is idolatrous. 6860.
JEGAR SAHADUTHA, the heap of testimony (Gen. xxxi. 47), s. the quality of good derived from truth, on the part of those who are principled in goods of works, like the Gentiles. 4195.
JEHOIAKIM (Jer. xxxvi. 30) after he had burnt the roll written by Jeremiah, it is said, ” that his dead body shall be cast out in the day to the heat, and in the night to the frost;” which s. that the truths of the church would perish by concupiscence for the false, and thence by aversion towards truths; for this king rep. the truth of the church about to perish. The roll which he burnt, s. the Word, which is said to be burnt, when it is falsified and adulterated, which is done by the concupiscence of the false from evil. The concupiscence for the false is s. by the heat in the day; and aversion to the truth, by frost in the night. A. E. 481.
JEHOSHAPHAT, the valley of (Joel iii. 12), s. the falsification of the Word. A. E. 911.
JEHOVAH in the Word of the Old Testament, everywhere means the Lord. 2005. J. s. divine love, or divine good. U. T. 85. J. s. the Lord’s internal man. 1793. When it is pred of J., that he says, nothing else is implied, but that it is so, or not so; or that it is so done, or not so done, for nothing else can be said of Jehovah — but he is. The various things pred. of J. throughout the Word, are spoken in compliance with the conceptions of those who can comprehend nothing, but what has some relation to things human, and this is the reason why the literal sense is such as we find it. The simple in heart may be instructed by appearances, according to human things, for their knowledges are seldom extended beyond the limits of sensual objects; wherefore, in the Word there is an accommodation of expression to their apprehension. 926. When it is said that J. speaks, it means that he wills; and when it is said that he swears, it means that ho understands it to be true. 3037. J. repenting that he had made man upon the earth (Gen. vi. 6), s. mercy. 586-590. The right hand of J., the great name of J., the soul of J., the holiness of J., and the height of Jacob, s. the Lord’s divine human. (Isa. lxii. 8; Jer. xliv. 26; li. 14; Amos iv. 2; viii. 7.) 2842. J. appeared to Moses in a human form adequate to his reception, which was external, as an aged man with a beard sitting with him, which is the reason why it is said of Moses, that ” J. knew him, and spake with him face to face.” Hence, also, the Jews had no other idea of J., than as of a very old man, with a long beard white as snow, who could do miracles above other gods. 4299. It is said (Exod. xxxiii.) that Moses saw J. face to face, which s. to see him in the interiors of the Word, of the church, and of worship, which yet is to see him in externals from internals. A. E. 412. At one time this name was lost, or changed into other names by the ancients, and it appears that even Moses did not then know the name of J. (See Exod. iii. 13-15.) 1343. J., prior to his personal incarnate advent, appeared in the form of an angel, for when he passed through heaven, he took upon himself that form, which was a human form; for the universal heaven, from the divinity therein, is like one man ; and as J. appeared in human form as an angel, it is evident that it was nevertheless J. himself, and that that very form was also the form of J. himself; because it was the divinity of himself in heaven ; this was the Lord from eternity. But since that human form was assumed by transition through heaven, it was necessary, in order to the salvation of the human race, for him to become really and essentially a man, and therefore he was pleased to be born, and actually to assume the human form, in which was J. himself. 10.579. J. descended and assumed the humanity, for the purpose of redeeming and saving mankind. U. T. 82. J. descended as divine truth, which is the Word, nevertheless, he did not separate thence the divine good. U. T. 85.
JEHOVAH CAUSED TO RAIN from JEHOVAH OUT or HEAVEN. (Gen. xix. 24.) By these words it appears, in the sense of the letter, as if there were two J., one on earth, and one in heaven; but the internal sense teaches how this is to be understood; viz., that by J. first named is meant the Lord’s divine human and holy proceeding, and that by J. named a second time, is meant the essential divine, which is called the father. 2447.
JEHOVAH GOING DOWN TO SEE (Gen. xviii. 21) s. judgment and visitation. 2242.
JEHOVAH GOD is first mentioned (Gen. ii. 4), because the celestial man is treated of; whereas he is called singly God in the foregoing chapter, wherein the spiritual man was treated of. On the same account mention is here made of ground and field, and heaven is first mentioned before earth. 89. J. G. (Gen. iii. 22) means the Lord, and, at the same time, the angelic heaven; hence he first speaks in the singular, and afterwards in the plural number. 298, 300. J. G. of heaven (Gen. xxiv. 3), as spoken of the Lord, is Jehovah himself, who is called the father, or the divine essence; and J. G. of earth, is, in this case, Jehovah who is called son, or the human essence. Thus J. G. of heaven s. the divine which is in things supreme; and J. G. of earth, the divine which is in things thence derived. But the Lord is called J. G. of heaven, by virtue of his divine, which is in the heavens; and God of earth, by virtue of his divine which is in the earths. The divine in the heavens, is also what is with man in his internals, but the divine in the earths, is what is with man in his externals. 3023.
JEHOVAH ZEBAOTH and LORD. When it is treated in the Word, concerning the divine power of good, or omnipotence, then it is said J. Z., or J. of hosts, and also Lord, so that J. Z. and Lord are of the same sense and signification. 2921. See Lord of Hosts.
JEHOVAH and GOD. J. is a name most holy, and belongs only to the church; whereas G. is not so, inasmuch as every nation had gods. It was not allowed any one to name the name of J., but those who had the knowledge of the true faith; whereas every one might name the name G. 624. J. is the name adopted in the Word, when the subject is concerning things belonging to the will, or the good things of love; but when the things treated of, are concerning intellectual things, or the truths of faith, the term G. is used. 709. J. means the Lord not yet incarnate, and the word Lord means J. incarnate, which is J. in his humanity. 2921.
JEHOVIH LORD s. the L. as to divine good. A. E. 850.
JEHUDITH, the daughter of Beeri the Hittite (Gen. xxvi. 3),s. truth from another source, than what was real and genuine. 3470.
JERAH (Gen. x. 27), a ritual of the church called Eber. 1247.
JEREMIAH. Lamentations of J., treat of the vastation of every good and truth among the Jewish nation. A. E. 357.
JERICHO s. instruction, also the good of life, because no one can be instructed in the truths of doctrine, but he who is in the good of life. But J., in an opp. sense, s. the profanation of truth and good. A. E. 700. J. s. the good of truths. A. E. 458. J. (Luke x. 30) s. the church, which is in possession of the knowledges of truth and good. A. E. 458. The waters of J. (2 Kings ii. 10-22) s. the truths of the Word in its literal sense; and the waters were healed by salt being cast into them, because salt s. the desire of truth towards good, and from the conjunction of both, health and soundness are produced. 10.300.
JERUSALEM s. the church, because in that city, in the land of Canaan, and in no other place, the temple was, and the altar and sacrifices were offered, thus divine worship performed; wherefore, also, three feasts were held yearly there, and every male throughout the whole land was commanded to come to them; hence it is, that J. s. the church as to worship and therefore as to doctrine, for worship is prescribed in doctrine and performed according to it, also because the Lord was in J., and taught in his own temple, and afterwards glorified his humanity there. A. R. 880. J. first s. the ancient church, and afterwards the Israelitish church. A. E. 619. J. (Ezek. xvi. 7) s. the ancient church. 3301. J. (Zech. ii. 4.) The spiritual are understood by those, who are in the midst of J.; and the spiritual natural, by those who are in the suburbs thereof. A. E. 620.
JERUSALEM and JERICHO. (Luke x. 30.) J. s. the truth of doctrine, and J. the good of truth, which is the good of life. A. E. 458.
JESREEL, (Hosea ii. 22) s. a new church. 3580.
JESSE, the root of, s. the Lord. 2468.
JEST. To j. from the Word and concerning the Word, is to sprinkle the holy things of heaven with the dust of the earth. A. E. 1064. It is also a profanation. 1064.
JESUITS. The scandals they infuse against the Lord. 8383. Interiorly believe nothing divine, but exteriorly play with divine things like conjurers. D. P. 222. Consulting on the means of keeping the people in blind obedience. L. J. 58.
JESUS. ” I J. have sent mine angel to testify unto you these things in the churches,” etc. (Rev. xxii. 16.) The reason why the Lord here names himself J., is, that all in the Christian world may know that the Lord himself, who was in the world, manifested the things which are des. in the book of Revelations, as also the things which are now opened. A. R. 953.
JESUS CHRIST. The name J. s. the divine good, and the name C. the divine truth, and by both the divine marriage in heaven. 3004, 3009 The angels sometimes call the Lord. J. C. U. T. 621. J. C. is Jehovah Lord, the Creator from eternity, the Saviour in time, and the Reformer to eternity, who is therefore at once, the father, son, and holy spirit. A. R. 961.
JESUS CHRIST and the LAMB, in the Apocalypse, s. the Lord, as to his divine human, and God there s. the Lord, as to his all-creating divinity. A. R. 6.
JETHRO, the father-in-law of Moses (Exod. xviii. 1), rep. divine good, from whence proceeds ordination. 8641. Also the good of the church amongst those who were in the truth of simple good. 8643.
JETUR rep. the spiritual church among the gentiles. 3268.
JEWELS, when applied to the ears, s. good in act. 3103.
JEWISH CHURCH, the, was not properly a church, but only the rep. of a church. 4281, 4289. The J. c. was instituted, that it might rep. the celestial church. 3727. The J. c. itself, and all things appertaining thereto, were rep. of such things as respect the Lord’s kingdom. 1823. The J. c. was not any new church, but it was a resuscitation of the ancient church, which had perished. 4835. The statutes, judgments, and laws of the J. c., as to a part, were like those in the ancient church. 4442. The J. c. by truth, understood the precepts of the decalogue, and also the laws, judgments, testimonies, aad statutes, which were delivered by Moses. 4690. The J. c. knew nothing concerning faith, which the Christian church did. 4690.
JEWISH NATION the, rep. the celestial kingdom of the Lord, and the Israelitish nation his spiritual kingdom. A. E. 960. The J. or Israelitish nation was such, that they only regarded externals, and not at all internals, and to look to externals alone, is to look to the image of a man without life; but to look to internals also, is to behold a living man. A. E. 412. The Israelitish and J. n. was not elected or chosen above others, but only received, in order that it might rep. a church. 4290.
JEWS, in the Word, s. those who belong to the Lord’s celestial church. A. R. 96. Their external holy principle was miraculously elevated by the Lord into heaven, and the interior things of worship, of the church, and Word perceived thereby in heaven. 3480, 4309, 4311, 6304, 8588, 10.492,10.500,10.602. The J. were forbidden to eat blood with the flesh, because it rep. at that time profanation; for ” not to eat flesh with its soul the blood,” s. not to mix together things profane with things holy. 998, 1003, 1008, 10.033. The J. being so prone to profanation, had never the mysteries of faith revealed to them, so that it was never even openly declared to them that they should live after death ; nor, do they know at this day, that any internal man exists. 302. They think erroneously who believe, that the J. will be converted in the last time or age of the church. 4847. The J., in another life, appear in front in the lower earth of the spiritual world, beneath the plane of the left foot. 3481.
JEZEBEL s. faith separate from charity. A. R. 132. J. s. those who are in the doctrine of every false, from the pleasures of self-love, and the love of the world. A. E. 160.
JIDLAPH, various religious principles and kind of worship. 2863.
JISHBAK rep. the heritable divisions of the Lord’s spiritual kingdom. 3239.
JOAB den. those in whom there is no longer any spiritual life, by reason of the profanation of good, and the falsification of truth. 9014.
JOB, book of. The most ancient books, amongst which is the book of J., were written by mere cor.; for the science of cor. was then the science of sciences, and they were esteemed above all others who could compose books most abounding in the most significant cor.; the book of J. is of this nature; but the spiritual sense therein collected from cor., does not treat concerning the holy things of heaven and the church like the spiritual sense in the prophets, wherefore it is not amongst the books of the Word. A. E. 543. The book of J. is an ancient book, wherein indeed is contained an internal sense, but not in series, or in regular and connected order. W. H. 16. S. S. 20. A. C. 2682. See Noah.
JOBAL (Gen. x. 28) a ritual of the church called Eber. 1245.
JOBEL. To draw. J., or what is the same, to hear the sound of a trumpet, den. to be in common perception of the good of the church, and the jubilee thence derived. 8802.
JOHN the APOSTLE s. those who are in the good of life from charity and its faith. A. R. 790. J. (Rev. i. 4) s. the Lord as to doctrine. A. E. 18. Also, doctrine concerning the Lord. A. E. 45. The things which were written by J. in the Apocalypse, were not sent to any church in those places, which are therein mentioned, but were told to their angels, by whom are understood those who receive. A. R. 41.
JOHN as an APOSTLE s. the good of love to the Lord, and consequent good of life, for which reason he was loved more than the other apostles, and at supper lay on the bosom of the Lord. (John xiii. 23, and xxi. 20.) A.R. 879. See Ezekiel, Peter.
JOHN the BAPTIST rep. the Lord as to the Word. 9372. It is said of him “that among them that are born of women, there has not risen a greater than J. the B., and notwithstanding, he that is least in the kingdom of heaven, is greater than he;” by which is s. that the Word is more than any doctrine in the world, and more than any truth in the world, but that the Word, in its internal sense, or its quality in heaven, is, in degree, above the Word in its external sense, or such as it is in the, world, and such as J. the B. taught. 9372. J. the B. was sent before, to prepare the people for the reception of the Lord, by baptism ; because baptism rep. and s. purification from evils and falses, and also regeneration through the Word from the Lord, which rep., unless it had preceded, the Lord could not have manifested himself in Judea and Jerusalem, to teach and to sojourn, because the Lord was the God of heaven and earth, under a human form, who could not be together with a nation, which was in mere falses of doctrine and evils of life; wherefore, unless the rep. of purification from evils and falses, had prepared them for his reception, that nation had perished by his divine presence, with disease of every kind, which is s. by these words, ” lest I come and smite the earth with a curse.” (Mal. iii. 23, 24.) A. E. 724. A. R. 776. See Baptism of John.
JOINT, out of, den. the want of that order in which the conjunction of truth with good can take place. 4278.
JOINTS, torpor of the, occasioned from voluptuous spirits. 5724.
JOKSHAN. Common lots of the Lord’s spiritual kingdom. 3239.
JOKTAN (Gen. x. 25) s. the external worship of the church called Eber. 1240.
JONADAB, the sons of (Jer. xxxv.) rep. those who are of the celestial church of the Lord, and hence it is said, that they should not drink wine, nor build a house, nor sow seed, nor plant vineyards, which s. to learn and retain those truths of the memory, which constitute the spiritual church; but that they should dwell in tents, which s. to receive and obey in the life. S. E. L. P. p. 26.
JONAH rep. the Jewish nation. A. E. 401. J. description of his being in the belly of the great fish (chap. ii. 5, 6), applies to and rep. the temptations of the Lord in his combats against the hells. 1961. See Gourd.
JONATHAN s. the truth of doctrine. A. E. 357.
JORDAN, land of (Ps. xlii. 6), s. what is lowly, consequently, what is distant from what is celestial, as the external things of man are from things internal. 1585. The plain of J. (Gen. xiii. 11) s. the external man. 1592. The river J. s. that which is first in the church, and this is divine truth, such as it is in the literal sense of the Word. A. R. 367. J. (Ps. cxiv. 5) s. the knowledges of good. 4255. J., as being a boundary, s. initiation into the knowledges of good and truth, for these are the first things; and at length when man is made a church, or the Lord’s kingdom, they become the last. 4255. J. being divided, and the sons of Israel passing over on dry [ground], s. the removal of evils and falses, and the admission of those who were principled in goods and truths. The like was s. by the waters of J. being divided by Elias, when he was taken up into heaven, and by Elisha, when he entered upon the prophetic office in the place of Elias. 4255. The passing over the river J. rep. the introduction of the regenerate into the kingdom of the Lord. 901. The swelling of J. s. the things appertaining to the external man, which rise up and want to have dominion over the internal. 1585.
JOSEDECH. See Joshua the son of Josedech.
JOSEPH s. in a supreme sense, the Lord in regard to the divine spiritual: in a spiritual sense, the spiritual kingdom; and in a natural sense, fructification and multiplication. A. R. 360. J. (Rev. vii. 8) s. the doctrine of good and truth, which is among those who are in the Lord’s spiritual kingdom; because he is named after the tribe of Zebulon, and before the tribe of Benjamin, consequently, in the middle; and the tribe which is first named in the series or class, s. some love which is of the will; and the tribe which is named after it, s. something of wisdom, which is of the understanding; and the tribe which is named last, s. some use or effect derived from them ; thus each series is full or complete. A. R. 360. J. s. the celestial spiritual man. 3969. J. (Gen. xl.) rep. the Lord’s internal man; or, the celestial spiritual from the rational. 4962,4963. J. (Gen. xxxix) s. good natural spiritual. 5006. That which J. rep. is called the celestial of the spiritual principle from the natural, nor can it be expressed otherwise, for the celestial principle is good from the divine, the spiritual principle is truth from that good, thus it is the truth of good from the divine human; this the Lord was when he lived in the world, but when he glorified himself, he then transcended above it, and was made the divine good itself or Jehovah even as to the human; this arcanum cannot be specifically explained further, only it may be added, that J. on this account came into Egypt and first served in the house of Potiphar the prince of the guards, and was next detained in custody, and afterwards made ruler over Egypt, that he might rep. how the Lord progressively made the human in himself divine, concerning which the Word was to be written, which Word was to contain things divine in the internal sense, a sense which was to be serviceable more especially to the angels, whose wisdom (incomprehensible and ineffable in respect lo human wisdom) is employed on such subjects, and at the same time was to be serviceable to men, who are particularly fond of historical relations, and in this case might have their minds engaged in those circumstances, wherein the angels perceive things divine by influx from the Lord. 5307, By those things which are recorded of J., from beginning to end, was rep. in its order, the glorification of the Lord’s human, and consequently, in an inferior sense, the regeneration of man. 5827. J. s. internal good from the rational. 5805. J. s. the good of faith. 5922. J. s. the good of the will in the rational. 6295. J. s. the spiritual church. 6434. The internal of the church. 5469. J. s. natural perception from celestial spiritual. 5325. J. being sold into Egypt, s. the same as the Lord’s being sold by Judas Iscariot. 4751. Head of J. s. wisdom appertaining to the internal man, and the top of the Nazarite his brother, intelligence and science appertaining to the external man. (Deut. xxxiii. 16.) A. E. 295.

JUDGE, to. It is on no account allowable for one man to j. of another as to the quality of his spiritual life, for the Lord alone knows this; nevertheless, it is allowable for every one to j. of another’s quality as to moral and civil life, for this is of concern to society. 2284.

U. 64. The inhabitants of J. made wisdom to consist in thinking well and justly on all occasions of life. They acknowledge the Lord as the supreme, and call him a man, and the only Lord, because in their earth he has been seen as a man ; but they do not know that he was born a man on our earth. They are exceedingly cautious on their earth, lest any one should enter into wrong opinions concerning the only Lord. Such of them as have lived in true conjugial love, and have taken such care of their children as becomes parents, do not die of diseases, but in tranquillity, as in sleep. E. U. 62, 84.
JUST. He is said to be j., in a spiritual sense, who lives according to divine laws. A. R. 815. They on the right hand being called j., as where it is said, ” the j. shall answer him, saying,” etc., and ” the j. shall go into life eternal,” s. that they are in the Lord’s justice; all who are in the good of charity, are called the j., not that they are j. from themselves, but from the Lord, whose justice is appropriated to them; wherefore they who in the Word are called j. and holy, are they who know and acknowledge that all good is from the Lord, and all evil from themselves, that is, in the power of themselves from hell. 5069.
