9744. Shall be of fine twined linen. That this signifies from the understanding, is evident from the signification of "fine linen," as being truth from a celestial origin (see n. 5319, 9469); whence "fine twined linen" denotes the understanding, because this consists and is as it were twined, or woven, of truths from a celestial origin. For there are two things to which all things in the universe bear relation, namely, truth and good; and therefore man has two faculties, one appointed for the reception of truth, and the other for the reception of good; the faculty appointed for the reception of truth is called the understanding, and the faculty appointed for the reception of good is called the will. Insofar therefore as the understanding has been formed from genuine truths, so far it excels, and so far it is "fine twined linen," for "fine linen" denotes truth from the Divine (n. 5319; that from this the "fine twined linen" denotes the understanding, see also n. 9596).
