9639. Combined the one to the other. That this signifies the consequent conjunction of the Lord with those who are in this heaven, is evident from the signification of "to be combined," when said of the power which is signified by "the hands," as being conjunction through truth from good. For all who are in heaven are called "powers," and also are powers, from the fact that they are receptions of the Divine truth which is from the Lord; therefore also by "angels" in the Word are signified truths Divine (see n. 8192). It is the Divine good proceeding from the Lord that conjoins all in heaven; for it is the Divine good that reigns universally in Divine truths, and that which reigns universally, conjoins. This conjunction is what is signified by the "combining of the hands of each plank the one to the other."
