9737. In carrying it. That this signifies coming-forth and subsistence, is evident from the signification of "to carry," as being to keep in a state of good and of truth, thus to come forth and subsist (see n. 9500). The same is signified by "carrying" in Isaiah:
Attend unto Me, O house of Jacob, and all the remains of the house of Israel, which I have carried from the womb; and even to old age, I am the same, and even to hoar hairs will I carry you; I have made, and I will carry, and I will bear (Isa. 46:3, 4);
where "to make" denotes that it may come-forth; "to carry," that it may subsist; and "to bear," that it may come-forth perpetually.
