4614. This is Hebron. That this signifies the state when they were conjoined, is evident from the signification of "Hebron," as being the good of the church (see n. 2909), here the Divine good of the Lord's Divine natural; for those things which in the internal sense signify something of the church, in the supreme sense signify something of the Lord's Divine, for the reason that all that which makes the church is from the Lord. That "Hebron" signifies the state when they were conjoined (namely, the rational and the natural), is because Isaac was there, by whom is represented the Lord's Divine rational; and Jacob came thither, by whom is represented His Divine natural, and by his coming thither is signified conjunction (n. 4612). It is said, "Mamre Kiriath-arba, this is Hebron," because the Divine natural is conjoined with the good of the rational by means of good, for Isaac represents the Lord's Divine rational as to good (n. 3012, 3194, 3210), whereas Rebekah represents it as to truth (see n. 3012, 3013, 3077), and Rebekah is not here mentioned.
