Spiritual Meaning of EXODUS 12:35-36
AC 7969. Verses 35, 36. And the sons of Israel did according to the Word of Moses; and they asked of the Egyptians vessels of silver, and vessels of gold, and garments. And Jehovah gave the people favor in the eyes of the Egyptians, and they lent to them; and they spoiled the Egyptians. "And the sons of Israel did according to the word of Moses," signifies that they obeyed truth Divine; "and they asked of the Egyptians vessels of silver, and vessels of gold, and garments," signifies that the memory-knowledges of truth and good taken from the evil who had been of the church were to be bestowed upon the good who were from thence; "and Jehovah gave the people favor in the eyes of the Egyptians," signifies the fear of those who are damned on account of those who are of the spiritual church; "and they lent to them," signifies that they were transferred; "and they spoiled the Egyptians," signifies that they who were in damnation were altogether devastated of such things.
AC 7970. It is needless to unfold these things in detail, because they have already been unfolded twice, namely, in (Exod. 3:21, 22), (n. 6914-6920), and in (Exod. 11:2, 3), (n. 7768-7773). EXODUS 12:35-36 previous - next - text - summary - Exodus - Full Page
