155. The words "a rib was built into a woman" have more things inmostly concealed in them than it is possible for anyone ever to discover from the letter; for the Word of the Lord is such that its inmost contents regard the Lord Himself and His kingdom, and from this comes all the life of the Word.

But the state of the post...

162. All the laws of truth and right flow from celestial beginnings, or from the order of life of the celestial man.

As every law of truth and right descends from celestial beginnings, or from the order of life of the cele...
