10251. And do thou take to thee chief spices. That this signifies truths with goods, from the Word, which are gratefully perceived, is evident from the signification of "spices," as being truths conjoined with goods, which are grateful (n. 10199). That it denotes which are gratefully perceived is because "odor" signifies perceptivity; and hence an "aromatic odor" signifies grateful perceptivity. (That "odor" signifies perceptivity, see n. 3577, 4624-4634, 4748, 10054.) That it denotes truths conjoined with goods from the Word, is because this is said to Moses, for it is said, "do thou take to thee spices," and by Moses is represented the Lord as to the Word (n. 9372); moreover, it is the Word from which are all the truths of the church, for the Word is Divine truth itself sent down from heaven by the Lord.
