6410. And he shall yield the delights of a king. That this signifies pleasantness from truth, is evident from the signification of "delights," as being what is pleasant; and from the signification of a "king," as being truth (see n. 1672, 1728, 2015, 2069, 3009, 4575, 4581, 4966, 5044, 6148); thus "to yield the delights of a king" denotes what is pleasant from truth. Mention is made of both "delight from good" and "pleasantness from truth" on account of the heavenly marriage in everything of the Word (n. 6343). The delight from good and the pleasantness from truth which cause blessedness in heaven, do not consist in idleness, but in activity; for in idleness delight and pleasantness become undelight and unpleasantness; but in activity delight and pleasantness are permanent and constantly uplift, and cause blessedness. With those who are in heaven, activity consists in the performance of uses (which to them is delight from good), and in relishing truths with the end of uses (which to them is pleasantness from truth).
