4445. Because he had wrought folly in Israel, in lying with Jacob's daughter, and so it ought not to be done. That this signifies a conjunction that in their eyes was unlawful, because contrary to the truth which they had, is evident from the signification of "committing folly in lying with Jacob's daughter," as being unlawful conjunction. (That to lie with her and thus defile her, denotes conjunction not legitimate, may be seen above, n. 4439.) It is said "in Israel," because by "Israel" is signified the internal of the church; and it is next said "Jacob's daughter," because by "Jacob" is signified the external of the church. (That "Israel" is the internal of the church and "Jacob" the external, may be seen above, n. 4286, 4292, 4439.) That although lawful, the conjunction appeared in their eyes unlawful, may be seen from what has been said and shown just above (n. 4444), and in other places.
