194. Internal Meaning of Hosea, Chapter 11

1 That Israel, the Lord, was brought down into Egypt, means that they were instructed in the first principles of the church. (1, 13)

2 They were there in natural desire and knowledge [scientia]. (11)

3 They were instructed in cognitions and knowledges [scientiae]. (11, 2)

5-8 When they have become spiritual, they will no longer be natural, since they will thus destroy truths and the understanding of them; (11)

9-11 but from their having been in knowledges [scientiae] they will have intelligence from the Lord. (11)

12 The understanding of the Word was falsified, although the Word is the Lord's. (2)
