3937. And Zilpah Leah's handmaid bare a second son to Jacob. That this signifies the acknowledgment of the second general truth, is evident from the signification of "bearing," as being acknowledgment (see n. 3911, 3915, 3919); from the signification of a "handmaid" as being an affirmative means that is of service for the conjunction of the external man with the internal (n. 3913, 3917); from the signification of a "son," as being truth, here a general truth (see n. 3926) and from the representation of Jacob, and of Leah, and also of Zilpah (concerning which above). This shows what is the internal sense of these words, namely, the acknowledgment of the second general truth that is of service as a means for conjoining the external man with the internal.
