2569. 'And gave to Abraham' means, imparted these to the Lord...... This is clear from the representation of 'Abraham' as the Lord, dealt with many times already, while '....and he restored to him Sarah his wife' means.... when the Divine spiritual had been joined to the Divine celestial is clear from the meaning of 'Sarah his wife' as spiritual truth joined to celestial good, dealt with in 2507. The internal sense of the words in this verse is evident from what has been stated, namely that when the Human within Him had been united to the Divine, and the Divine to the Human, the Lord had complete knowledge not only of Divine celestial and spiritual things, but also of infra-celestial and infra-spiritual, that is, of rational and natural things. For from the Divine, as from the Source of all light, all things are seen as existing in the present moment.
