9963. When they go in into the Tent of meeting. That this signifies in the representative worship of all things of heaven and of the church, is evident from the signification of "going in into the Tent of meeting," as being the representative worship of all things of heaven and of the church; for by "the Tent" was represented heaven where the Lord is (see n. 9457, 9481, 9485, 9784); thus by "going into it," when said of Aaron and his sons, is signified the worship of the Lord. Moreover, at that time all worship was performed in the Tent and at the altar; for in the Tent were set in order the breads of faces, the lamps were lighted, incense was burned, and sacrifices were offered at the altar. In these things the representative worship chiefly consisted. Representative worship is external worship that represents the internal things which belong to love from the Lord to the Lord, thus which are all things of heaven and of the church; for in heaven and in the church all things bear relation to the good that is of love, and to the truth that is of faith, from the Lord to the Lord.
