Noah, Shem...

This is why the name "brother" is here added. ...

1247. That by these nations are signified so many rituals, is evident from the fact that in the Word names never signify anything else than actual things; for in its internal sense the Word relates only to the Lord, to His Kingdom in the heavens and on earth, and consequently to the church and the things of the church. Such is the case with these names. And as Joktan, a son of Eber, signifies the...

There they are predicated of Ham, or of corrupt internal worship...

So here, as the subject is the Ancient Church, the nativities signify in proportion as th...
