9059. 'Or the eye of [his] female slave' means, [if it injures] an affection for truth there. This is clear from the meaning of 'the eye' as the understanding part of the mind and therefore the truth of faith, as immediately above in 9058; and from the meaning of 'female slave' as an affection for natural truth, dealt with in 2567, 3835, 3849, 8993.
