And he shall be as a tree planted by streams of waters, That gives his fruit in its time. Psalm 1:3


Doctrine of the Lord 37. I have been permitted to run through all the Prophets and the Psalms of David, and to examine each verse and see what it treats of, and I have seen that the only subjects treated of are: the church set up anew and to be set up anew by the Lord; the advent, combats, glorification, redemption, and salvation, of the Lord; heaven from Him; and, with these, their opposites. As all these are works of the Lord, it became evident that universal Holy Scripture is concerning Him, and therefore that the Lord is the Word.

Prophets and Psalms 0. The things that follow [in this little work treat of]:

1.   The Lord’s advent.
2.   The successive vastation of the church.
3.   The church totally devastated, and its rejection.
4.   The rejection of the Lord by the church.
5.   The Lord’s temptations in general.
6.   Temptation even to despair.
7.   The combats of the Lord with the hells.
8.   Victory over them, or their subjugation.
9.   The passion of the cross.
10.   The glorification of the Human of the Lord, or its union with the Divine.
11.   A new church in place of the former.
12.   A new church together with a new heaven.
13.   The state of humiliation before the Father.
15.1A last judgment by the Lord.
16.   Celebration and worship of the Lord.
17.   Redemption and salvation by the Lord.

1 Editor’s Note: No. 14 is crossed out by Swedenborg in his manuscript and is never referred to in the text. It reads, “The state of unition with His Divine,” which is the same as No. 10.
