Not illustrated. 1854 edition. Excerpt: ...unclean pleasures, which, wonderful to tell, are then delightful to them. But the obscure delight, and almost imperceptible blessedness, which had been with those in the world who were in love to God and in love towards the neighbor, is then turned into the delight of heaven, which is in every way perceptible and sensible: for that blessedness, which was stored up and lay hid in their interiors when they lived in the world, is then revealed and brought forth into manifest sensation, because they are then in the spirit, and that was the delight of their spirit.--H.

As in Isaiah: " Thoo. wast let down to hell, to the sides of the pit; thou wast cast forth from thy sepulchre as an abominable twig; the garment of the slain, of the thrust through with the sword, who go down to the stones of the pit," xiv. 15, 10. So in Exekiel: " When I shall cause thee to go down with those who go down to the pit to the people of the age, and shall cause thee to dwell in the earth of things below; that thou mayest not dwell in desolations from the age with them who g, down to the pit; then I will give gracefulness ui the land of the living," xxvi. 20.--.tf.
