A 'sword,' in the Word, signifies the truth of faith combating and the vastation of truth. In an opposite sense, it signifies falsity combating and the punishment of falsity.

(References: Arcana Coelestia 2799)


A 'sword,' as in Ezekiel 21:9-15, signifies a person so desolated that he can see nothing good and true, but only falsities and contradictions, which is 'ruins being multiplied.'

(References: Arcana Coelestia 309; Ezekiel 21:9-15)


The 'sword,' in Revelation 1:16, means a dispersion of falsities by the Lord, because came out from His mouth, which means coming from the Word, because the Lord spoke it with His mouth. Because the Word is understood by doctrine taken from it, this is also symbolically meant. It is called a sharp two-edged sword because it pierces the heart and soul.

(References: Apocalypse Revealed 52; Revelation 1:16)


A 'flaming sword which turned every way,' as in Genesis 3:24, signifies divine truth in extremes, which, like the Word in its literal sense, can be turned.

(References: Apocalypse Revealed 329; Genesis 3:24)
