6185. And he said, I will do according to thy word. That this signifies that so it shall be done of providence by the Divine, is evident from the signification of "doing according to the word" of anyone, as being that so it shall be done. It is added "of providence by the Divine" because Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob represented three things which make a one. In the supreme sense, Abraham represented in the Lord the Divine Itself, Isaac the Divine rational, and Jacob the Divine natural (see n. 3305, 4615, 6098); and in the sense that regards man, these three patriarchs represented the inmost which is celestial good, the interior which is spiritual good, and the exterior which is natural good. These are signified by those three in one sepulcher, because by a "sepulcher" is signified resurrection into life and regeneration (n. 2916, 2917, 4621, 5551).
