5303. Verses 37-40. And the word was good in the eyes of Pharaoh, and in the eyes of all his servants. And Pharaoh said unto his servants, Shall we find such a one as this, a man in whom is the spirit of God? And Pharaoh said unto Joseph, Forasmuch as God hath caused thee to know all this, there is no one so intelligent and wise as thou; thou shalt be over my house, and upon thy mouth shall all my people kiss; only in the throne will I be greater than thou. “And the word was good in the eyes of Pharaoh,” signifies what is very pleasing to the natural; “and in the eyes of all his servants,” signifies what is very pleasing to all things in the natural; “and Pharaoh said unto his servants,” signifies the perception of the natural together with all things therein; “Shall we find such a one as this, a man in whom is the spirit of God,” signifies about the influx of truth in which is good from the interior, thus the celestial of the spiritual; “and Pharaoh said unto Joseph,” signifies the perception of the natural from the celestial of the spiritual; “Forasmuch as God hath caused thee to know all this,” signifies because it has foresight and providence; “there is no one so intelligent and wise as thou,” signifies that this is the only source of truth and good; “thou shalt be over my house,” signifies that the natural mind shall be subordinate and submissive thereto; “and upon thy mouth shall all my people kiss,” signifies that everything therein shall be in obedience to him; “only in the throne will I be greater than thou,” signifies that nevertheless it will appear as if from the natural, because from the celestial of the spiritual through the natural.

No. 5303 “And the word was good in the eyes of Pharaoh.” This signifies what is pleasing to the natural. No 5313 “Only in the throne will I be greater then thou.” That this signifies that nevertheless it will appear as if from the natural, because from the celestial of the spiritual through the natural…” The natural is like a throne for the celestial of the spiritual.
