Go up ye horses, and rage ye...

Moreover, as in ancient times they gave names to actual things...

Hence comes the signification of "nations" and of "...

Then flew one of...

1292. That they found a valley in the land of Shinar. That this signifies that their worship became more unclean and profane, is evident from the signification of "a valley," and of "the land of Shinar."

That "brick" has this signification may be further seen from the follo...

As in Isaiah: Our house of holiness, and...

That this signifies that they had falsity for truth, is evident from the signification of "brick," just now shown to be falsity; and from the signification of "stone," which in a wide sense is truth, concerning which above (n. 643). Stones have signified truth for the reason that the boundaries of the most ancient people were marked off by st...
