2837. Jehovah-will-see. That this signifies the Lord's providence, is evident from the signification of "seeing," when predicated of Jehovah or the Lord, as being to foresee and provide (see n. 2807). (That "Jehovah" is the Lord, may be seen above, n. 1343, 1736, 2156, 2329.) In the literal sense this is the naming of a place, but in the internal sense it is the quality of a state which is described; for times and spaces are merely of nature; and therefore when the sense of the letter of the Word passes from nature into heaven, the natural idea of those things altogether perishes, and becomes the spiritual idea that corresponds to them.
