Commentary on this verse

By Alexander Payne

Verse 13. The soul must select from the faculties of the mind such as conduce to wisdom and intelligence in both the rational and natural faculties, and the external life must be governed by them under Divine truth. [N.B.— "Knowing or known among your tribes"—wisdom and intelligence brought down to the natural principle (Arcana Coelestia 5287).]
