9149. When a man shall give to his companion silver or vessels to take care of. That this signifies truths from good and the corresponding knowledges in the memory, is evident from the signification of "silver," as being truth from good (see n. 1551, 2954, 5658, 6914, 6917, 7999, 8932); from the signification of "vessels," as being memory-knowledges (see n. 3068); that corresponding memory-knowledges are meant is because all spiritual truths are stored up in memory-knowledges as in their vessels (n. 3079); and all memory-knowledges correspond to the truths which are contained; and from the signification of "to take care of," as being to be in the memory; for in the spiritual sense, in which truths and memory-knowledges are treated of, "to be taken care of" denotes to be kept in the memory, because it is in this that such things are taken care of. "A man giving to his companion to take care of," denotes to store up within himself in the memory, for that which in the sense of the letter is said of one person and another, as here of a man and his companion, in the internal sense is understood of one; for two truths, as also a truth and the corresponding memory-knowledge, are in a human being as a man and his companion.
