6153. Behold I have bought you the day and your ground for Pharaoh. That this signifies that it procured these for itself, and made them subject to what is general in the natural that was under the auspices of the internal, is evident from the signification of "buying," as being to appropriate and procure (n. 4397, 5374, 5397, 5406, 5410, 5426); and from the signification of "ground," as being receptacles of truth (n. 6135-6137). That it subjected them to what is general in the natural is signified by his "buying them for Pharaoh," by whom is represented the natural in general (n. 5160, 5799, 6015). It is said "under the auspices of the internal" in accordance with what was unfolded above (n. 6145).
