Napsal(a) Emanuel Swedenborg
Here is an excerpt from Swedenborg's "Arcana Coelestia" that helps explain the inner meaning of this chapter:
AC 4232. The subject here treated of in the internal sense is the inversion of state in the natural, in order that good may be in the first place, and truth in the second. The implantation of truth in good is treated of (verses 1 to 23); and the wrestlings of the temptations which are then to be sustained (verses 24 to 32). At the same time the Jewish nation is also treated of, because although that nation could receive nothing of the church, it nevertheless represented the things of the church.
