814. Verse 11. And I saw another beast coming up out of the earth; and he had [two] horns like a lamb, and he spake as a dragon.

"And I saw another beast coming up out of the earth," signifies, confirmations from the sense of the letter of the Word in favour of faith separated from life, and thence falsifications of the truth of the church; "and he had two horns like a lamb," signifies, the power of persuading the conjunction with the Word of faith separated, as from the Lord; "and he spake as a dragon," signifies, with affection, thought, doctrine, and preaching, similar to what prevails with those who separate faith from the life of faith, which is charity.
