8999. 'He would be acting treacherously towards her' means that this would be contrary to the laws of Divine order. This is clear from the meaning of 'acting treacherously' as contrary to God's truth, or what amounts to the same thing, contrary to the laws of Divine order. This meaning of 'acting treacherously' is evident from what had been introduced immediately above in 8998. In heaven the laws of Divine order are truths, for Divine order originates in Divine Truth emanating from the Lord, 8700, 8988. 'Acting treacherously' is a recurrent expression in the Word, meaning in the internal sense acting contrary to truth and good in heaven, or what amounts to the same thing, contrary to Divine order, as in Isaiah 21:2; 33:1; 48:8; Jeremiah 3:20; 5:11; 12:1, 6; Hosea 5:7; 6:7; Malachi 2:10-11, 14-15; Psalms 78:57; 119:158.
