Commentary on this verse

Verse 17. For the vastation of the wicked, or corrupted man, takes place according to the Divine Truth of the Word, and a new state of the church succeeds, which, in this case, is a farther degree of corruption; for at the same time the celestial church is vastated as to the faith of charity, and like the spiritual church is rejected because truth fails, and there is conjunction of falsity with evil.
