3872. And she called his name Simeon. That this signifies its quality, is evident from the signification of "name," and of "calling a name," as being quality (see n. 144, 145, 1754, 1896, 2009, 2724, 3006, 3421). The quality itself is contained in the internal sense of the words which Leah uttered: "Jehovah hath heard that I was hated, and hath given me this one also." This quality is what is signified by "Simeon," and also by the tribe named from him; and this is the second universal of the church, that is, the second during man's regeneration and when he is becoming a church; namely, obedience, or the will of doing the truth of faith; into which obedience, and in which will, charity is implanted, which next succeeds, and is signified by "Levi."
