The Bible where The Divine lies hidden in the word

Selection from Arcana Cœlestia ~ Emanuel Swedenborg

The Word is wonderful in this respect — it is Divine as to every jot, for every word corresponds to some spiritual thing which may be said to be stored up within it, because the spiritual of the Word is made manifest with the angels, when the Word is read by man.

The case herein is this:

Each and all things in the natural world have a correspondence with those which are in the spiritual world, and this down to every word. And the Word has been so written that its words in their series involve series of spiritual things, which do not appear to a man unless he is acquainted with correspondences. In this way what is Divine lies hidden in the Word.

From this the Word is spiritual, as also it is called.

(from Arcana Cœlestia 10633)
