9881. Of pure gold. That this signifies through celestial good, is evident from the signification of "gold," as being the good of love (see n. 113, 1551, 1552, 5658, 6914, 6917, 8932, 9490, 9510); and as it is called "pure gold," it is celestial good which is meant; for there is celestial good, and there is spiritual good, and each both internal and external. Celestial good is the good of love to the Lord, and spiritual good is the good of love toward the neighbor. In the Word all these goods are called "gold," and are distinguished as "the gold from Uphaz," "from Ophir," "from Sheba" and "Havilah," and also "from Tarshish"-by "the gold from Uphaz" in Jeremiah 10:9; and Daniel 10:5, which denotes celestial good; by "the gold from Ophir" in Isaiah 13:12; Psalm 45:9; and Job 22:24; 28:16, which denotes spiritual good; by "the gold from Sheba" in Isaiah 60:6; Ezekiel 27:22; Psalm 72:15, which denotes the good of knowledges; as also by "the gold from Havilah" in Genesis 2:11, 12; and by "the silver and gold from Tarshish" in Isaiah 60:9, which denote the truth and good of memory-knowledge.
