128. Internal Meaning of Ezekiel, Chapter 5

It is represented how they have destroyed the sense of the letter. (2)

1-2 In part they have adulterated the sense of the letter, in part have falsified it, and in part forsaken it; nevertheless, they will continue to falsify it. (2)

3 They will profane all the truths of the church. (2)

5-7 Because they have perverted the truths of the church more than others, (3)

8-10 falsities have destroyed goods, and evils truths until nothing of good and truth is left; (3)

11-12 and because they have destroyed the church by profaning it, they will perish, as above. (3)

13 Afterward the church will be instituted among others, (11)

14-17 since all things of the Word, of doctrine and of the church have previously been consummated by profanities, and by evils and falsities. (3)
