8155. And they overtook them encamping by the sea. That this signifies communication around the region of hell where are falsities from evils, is evident from the signification of "overtaking," as being communication, for in the spiritual sense "to overtake" or come in contact with denotes influx, by which there is communication, here of the falsities from evil of those who are signified by "the Egyptians" with those who are signified by "Israel"-that there was communication there is evident from the temptation which they first underwent there, of which in what follows, for all temptation arises through influx from the hells, thus by communication (n. 8131)-from the signification of "encamping," as being the setting in order of truth and good by the Lord for the undergoing of temptations (n. 8103, 8130, 8131) and from the signification of "the sea," here the sea Suph, as being the hell where are the falsities from evil of those who are in faith separate from charity and in a life of evil (n. 8099, 8137, 8148).
