6596. And he was put in an ark in Egypt. That this signifies concealment in the memory-knowledges of the church, is evident from the signification of an "ark," as being that in which something is stored up or concealed; and from the signification of "Egypt," as being the memory-knowledges of the church (see n. 4749, 4964, 4966); and the memory-knowledges of the church were at that time the knowledges of the representatives and significatives that had been in the Ancient Church. The concealment of the internal in these is signified by the foregoing words. (Concerning the concealment of the internal of the church, and the consequent preservation lest it should suffer injury, see just above, n. 6595.) That an "ark" denotes that in which something is stored up or concealed, may be seen from the ark of the Testimony, in that it was called an "ark" because in it was stored up the Testimony or Law.
