ZEAL of the LORD, the, is love and mercy. 8875. In heaven or with the angels there is no such thing as anger, but instead of anger, z.; for anger differs from z. in this, that there is evil in anger, but in z. there is good; or that he who is in anger, intends evil to another with whom he is angry, but he who is in z., intends good to another, towards whom he hath z.; wherefore also he who is in z. can in an instant be good, and in the very act be good towards others, but not so he who is in anger; although z. in the external form appears like anger, still in the internal form it is altogether unlike. 4164.

ZEBULON (Gen. xlix. 13) s. the cohabitation of good and truth, or the heavenly marriage. It is called the cohabitation of good and truth, because Z., in the original tongue, s. cohabitation. By Z. are here meant, those who believe the doctrinals der. from the Word, but with whom some affirmative principle universally prevails, and yet faith has not life in truths but in scientilics, for they apply scientifics to doctrinals, and thus confirm their affirmative principle,; they therefore, who are Z., do not elevate themselves from scientifics, but when they hear or think concerning any truth of faith, they instantly fall into the scientific principle; several in the world are of this description ; the Lord also provides, that things scientific and sensual, should serve them for this use. 6383. By Z., in a supreme sense, is s. the union of the essential divinity, and the divine humanity in the Lord, in a spiritual sense, the marriage of good and truth in those who are in heaven and in the church, and in a natural sense, conjugial love itself; therefore in Rev. vii. by Z. is s. the conjugial love of good and truth; moreover he was so called from cohabitation (Gen. xxx. 19, 22), and cohabitation is pred. of married pairs, whose minds are joined in one, for such conjunction is spiritual cohabitation. The conjugial love of good and truth, which is here s. by Z., is the conjugial love of the Lord, and his church; the Lord is the good of love itself, and gives to the church to be truth from that pood; and cohabitation is effected, when the man of the church receives good from the Lord, in truths; in this case, there takes place in man a marriage of good and truth, which constitutes the church itself, and he becomes a heaven ; hence it is, that the kingdom of God, that is, heaven and the church, is so often compared in the Word to a marriage. A. R. 359.

Z. (Isa. xxiii. 4, 5) s. those who have been in the knowledges of faith, and have destroyed them by scientifics, and thereby become barren. 264. See Tyre and Zidon.

Z. (Gen. xix. 22) s. the affection of good, namely, the good of science, that is, the affection of truth, in the present instance little of truth, for by Z., in the original tongue, is s. little or small, for they who are in the affection of truth, have little of truth, because but little of good, in comparison with those who are in the affection of good. 2439,
