1 Daarna het Hy hardop voor my ore geroep en gesê: Kom nader, geregsdienaars van die stad, en elkeen met sy verwoestende wapen in sy hand.

2 En kyk, ses manne kom met die pad van die Boonste Poort wat na die noorde toe lê, en elkeen met sy wapen in sy hand om mee te verbrysel; en onder hulle een man wat met linne bekleed was, met 'n skrywer se inkpot aan sy heupe; en hulle het gekom en vlak by die koperaltaar gaan staan.

3 En die heerlikheid van die God van Israel het opgestyg van die gérub waar dit op was, na die drumpel van die huis toe; en Hy het na die man geroep wat met linne bekleed was, wat die skrywer se inkpot aan sy heupe gehad het.

4 En die HERE vir hom: Trek dwarsdeur die stad, dwarsdeur Jerusalem, en maak 'n teken op die voorhoofde van die manne wat sug en steun oor al die gruwels wat daarin gedoen word.

5 Maar aan die ander Hy voor my ore: Trek agter hom aan deur die stad, en slaan; laat julle oog nie verskoon nie, en moet nie spaar nie;

6 slaan dood grysaards, jongmanne en jongedogters en kinders en vroue tot vernietiging toe; maar raak aan niemand op wie die teken is nie, en begin by my heiligdom. En hulle het begin by die manne, die oudstes, wat voor die huis was.

7 En Hy vir hulle: Verontreinig die huis en maak die voorhowe vol met mense wat verslaan word. Trek uit! En hulle het uitgetrek en geslaan in die stad.

8 En toe hulle besig was om neer te slaan en ek oorgebly het, het ek op my aangesig geval en uitgeroep en gesê: Ag, Here HERE, gaan U die hele oorblyfsel van Israel vernietig deurdat U u grimmigheid oor Jerusalem uitgiet?

9 Toe Hy vir my: Die ongeregtigheid van die huis van Israel en van Juda is buitengewoon groot, en die land is vol bloedskuld, en die stad is vol regsverbreking; want hulle : Die HERE het die land verlaat, en die HERE sien nie.

10 Daarom ook, wat My aangaan, my oog sal nie verskoon nie, en Ek sal nie spaar nie; Ek sal hulle wandel op hulle hoof laat neerkom.

11 En kyk, die man wat met linne bekleed was, aan wie se heupe die inkpot was, het berig gebring en gesê: Ek het gedoen soos U my beveel het.

9936. 'And it shall be on Aaron's forehead' means from the Lord's Divine Love. This is clear from the representation of 'Aaron' as the Lord in respect of Divine Good, which is the Good of His Divine Love, dealt with in 9806; and from the meaning of 'forehead', when the Lord is the subject, as His Divine Love. 'The Lord's face', which is the same as 'Jehovah's face', means all attributes of Divine Love, such as mercy, peace, goodness, or wisdom, 222, 223, 5585, 6848, 6849, 9306, 9545, 9546. These are meant by 'Jehovah's face' or 'the Lord's face' because in general 'the face' means a person's interiors, that is, a person's affections and consequent thoughts, thus the things which constitute his love and faith, see the places referred to in 9546. These are meant by 'the face' because they shine from the face, as if seen in their imprint or image, which also is why the face is called the image of the mind. So it is that when 'face' is mentioned in connection with Jehovah or the Lord the attributes of His Divine Love are meant. 'Forehead' in particular means Divine Love itself, because interiors have been allotted their own provinces in the face. The interiors that belong to love reside in the province of the forehead, those belonging to wisdom and intelligence in the province of the eyes, those belonging to perception in the province of the nose, and those belonging to utterance in the province of the mouth.

(Odkazy: Arcana Coelestia 222-223, 6848-6849)

[2] From all this it is evident why 'forehead' - when the Lord, represented by Aaron, is the subject - means Divine Love. Since someone's forehead corresponds to his love those governed by celestial love, that is, by love to the Lord derived from the Lord, are said 'to have a sign on their foreheads', meaning that they are under the Lord's protection because they abide in His Love, as in Ezekiel,

Jehovah said, Go through the middle of Jerusalem and make a sign on the foreheads of the men (vir) who groan and sigh over all the abominations done in the midst of it, and strike; do not let your eye spare. But against any man (vir) on whom there is a sign do not go near. Ezekiel 9:4-6.

In John, in the Book of Revelation,

Behold, a Lamb standing on Mount Zion, and with Him a hundred and forty-four thousand, having His Father's name written on their foreheads. Revelation 14:1.

In the same book,

They will see the face of God and of the Lamb, and His name will be on their foreheads. Revelation 22:4.

In the same book,

It was declared that they should not harm the grass of the earth, or any green thing, or any tree, but only the people who did not have God's sign on their foreheads. Revelation 9:4.

[3] 'Having God's sign on their foreheads' and 'having God and the Lamb's name on them' stand for their being kept safe from molestation by evils from hell, because they abide in the Lord through love. 'The grass' and 'any green thing', which were not to be harmed, stand for true factual knowledge by means of which the truth of faith develops, 7571, 7691; and 'any tree', which too was not to be harmed, stands for the perception of truth springing from good, 103, 2163, 2722, 2972, 4552, 7692.

[4] In Moses,

You shall love Jehovah your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your strength. You shall bind these words as a sign onto your hand, and let them be as frontlets between your eyes. Deuteronomy 6:4-5, 8.

'As frontlets' stands for as a sign of love to Jehovah God. The words 'between your eyes' are used because intelligence and wisdom which are born from that love are meant by 'eyes'; and wisdom born from that love consists in having God constantly before one's eyes. This is self-evidently so because the subject is love to Jehovah God. The declaration that they should love Him with all their heart, with all their soul, and with all their strength, means that they should do so with all their human powers. 'With the heart' means with the will where the good of love resides, 7542, 9050, 9300, 9495; and 'with the soul' means with the understanding where the truth of faith resides, and so with faith, 9050. These two powers belong to the internal man. 'With all their strength' means with those powers of will and understanding as they exist in the external man. The strength and power of the love of both, of the external man and of the internal, are meant by 'hands', 4931-4937, 7518; and this is why it says that those words were to be bound 'as a sign on the hand'.

(Odkazy: Deuteronomy 6:5)

[5] Since 'the forehead' by virtue of its correspondence means celestial or heavenly love with those who are good, with those who are bad it accordingly means hellish love, which is the opposite of heavenly. The forehead of the latter is called a bronze forehead in Isaiah 48:4, and an obstinate forehead in Ezekiel 3:7-8. And in reference to those ruled by hellish love it is said that they had the mark of the beast on their foreheads, Revelation 13:16; 14:9; 20:4, and also the name of Babylon on their foreheads, Revelation 17:5.
