5926. And he fell upon his brother Benjamin's necks.* That this signifies inmost conjunction with the intermediate, is evident from the signification of the "neck," as being influx, communication, and conjunction (see n. 3542, 3695, 3725), and properly the conjunction of celestial and spiritual things (see n. 5320, 5328), thus the conjunction of the internal celestial which is "Joseph," with the spiritual of the celestial which is "Benjamin," hence "falling upon the necks" denotes to closely conjoin oneself, consequently it denotes inmost conjunction; and from the representation of Benjamin, as being the intermediate (n. 5411, 5413, 5443, 5639, 5686, 5688, 5689).
* "Necks," in the plural. It is so written in both the Hebrew and the Latin. [Reviser.]
