About: These explanations of the meaning of Bible words and phrases are drawn from Emanuel Swedenborg's exegetical works. Those meanings were first indexed/compiled in "A Dictionary of Correspondences, Representatives, and Significatives", by George Nicholson, 1841. Nicholson's work was later updated and expanded by Rev. Samuel Worcester, of Boston, Mass., around 1900, and reprinted. The listings were further updated and corrected by the NCBS editors, in the production of these word/phrase descriptions. In some cases, New Christian Bible Study staff have expanded on Nicholson's entries, or written new ones that are more accessible to modern readers.
