240. Full of eyes before and behind, signifies the Divine wisdom, therein. By "eyes," when spoken of man, is signified the understanding, and when of the Lord, the Divine wisdom (n. 48, 125); the same when said of the Word, as here, because the Word is from the Lord, and concerning the Lord, and thus is the Lord. The like is said of the cherubim in Ezekiel, that "they were full of eyes" (10:12). "Before and behind," when it relates to the Word from the Lord, signifies the Divine wisdom and Divine love therein.
