8665. And they asked a man his companion as to peace. That this signifies a mutual Divine celestial state, is evident from the signification of "asking as to peace," as being consociation in respect to a Divine celestial state (of which below); and from the signification of "a man to his companion," as being mutually. That "asking as to peace" denotes consociation in respect to a Divine celestial state, is because in the internal sense "to ask as to peace" is to ask about the life, its prosperity and happiness; but in the supreme sense, where Divine good and truth Divine are the subject treated of, "to ask as to peace" denotes consociation in respect to a Divine celestial state. For in the supreme sense "peace" signifies the Lord, and from this the state of the inmost heaven, where they are who are in love to the Lord, and from this in innocence. These moreover are above all others in peace, because in the Lord; and their state is called "Divine celestial." Hence it is that by "peace" is here meant such a state. (What "peace" denotes in the supreme sense, and what in the internal sense, see n. 3780, 4681, 5662, 8455.)
