4277. 'And he touched the hollow of his thigh' means where celestial-spiritual good is joined to natural good meant by 'Jacob'. This is clear from the meaning of 'the thigh' as conjugial love, and consequently as all celestial and spiritual love, since these are derived from conjugial love as offspring from their parent, dealt with in 3021; and from the meaning of 'the hollow' or socket or cavity of it - that is to say, of the thigh - as the place where the joining together exists, and here therefore where celestial-spiritual good is joined to natural good meant by 'Jacob'. But no one can be told anything about that conjunction unless he knows first of all what celestial-spiritual good, meant by 'Israel', is, and what natural good, meant by 'Jacob', is. It will be told below at verse 28 where Jacob, who at that point is named Israel, is the subject and also further on where Jacob's descendants are the subject.

6265. 'And Joseph brought them away from his thighs' means that the good belonging to the will and the truth belonging to the understanding were brought away from an affection originating in love on the part of spiritual good. This is clear from the representation of 'Joseph' as the internal celestial, dealt with in 5869, 5877; from the representation of Manasseh and Ephraim, the ones here whom 'Joseph brought away', as the good belonging to the will and the truth belonging to the understanding, dealt with in 5354, 6222; from the meaning of 'the thighs' as an affection originating in love, dealt with in 3021, 4277, 4280, 4575, 5050-5062; and on the part of spiritual good is meant because they were brought away from Israel, who represents spiritual good, 6253. The words used here mean that the internal celestial took good belonging to the will and truth belonging to the understanding away from spiritual good, that is, away from the affection arising from its love; they have this meaning because 'Israel', who represents spiritual good, had made that goodness and truth draw near him. Besides this they had to be brought to him by Joseph, who represents the internal celestial; for that reason they were brought away and after that, as described in what follows, were brought to him again by Joseph.

[2] The explanation for all this is that the inflow of love came to that goodness and truth from the internal celestial by way of spiritual good - in keeping with true order. That external procedure had therefore to be strictly adhered to when they were going to be blessed; for they were being presented to the Lord, the Source of the foretelling meant here by the blessing, 6254. This now explains why Joseph brought his sons away from his father's thighs, and why he himself after that brought them to him again.

10075. 'And the right flank' means inmost good. This is clear from the meaning of 'the right flank' as inmost good. 'The right flank' means inmost good because animals' flanks have the same meaning as the loins and thighs on a human being; a human being's loins and thighs mean conjugial love and consequently the good of celestial love, which is the good of the inmost heaven, see 3021, 4277, 4280, 4575, 5050-5062, 9961; and the right side of the loins and the right thigh mean the inmost good there. For by virtue of their correspondence the parts on the right side of a human being mean good from which springs truth, and those on the left side truth through which comes good; and those in the middle therefore mean the joining together of the two, that is, of good and truth. From this also it becomes clear that the flanks are the hindquarters of an animal where its genital organs reside, but not the forequarters, for these are called its breast. Since it means inmost good or celestial good, when the right flank of a sacrifice was lifted up and was given to Aaron it is called 'the anointing of him and of his sons', in Moses,

The right flank you shall give as a heave offering to the priest out of your eucharistic sacrifices. The breast of the wave offering and the flank of the heave offering I have received from the children of Israel from their eucharistic sacrifices; I have given them to Aaron the priest and to his sons by the statute of an age 1 . This is the anointing of Aaron and the anointing of his sons from the fire offerings to Jehovah. Leviticus 7:32, 34-35.

The breast and flank are called 'the anointing' on account of their representation of spiritual good and celestial good; for the breast by virtue of its correspondence means spiritual good, which is the good of the middle or second heaven, and the right flank celestial good, which is the good of the inmost or third heaven; and 'anointing' is a representation of the Lord in respect of Divine Good, 9954, 10019. Also the breast and the right flank were given to Aaron from sacrifices of the firstborn of ox, sheep, and goat, Numbers 18:18. The meaning of 'the right flank' as inmost good is also evident from the fact that it is mentioned last; for the tail and the intestines are mentioned first, after these the omentum on the liver, and the kidneys, and finally the right flank. The things that are mentioned first are most external, those that are mentioned second are more internal, and what is mentioned last is inmost.
