9685. And thou shalt bestow the table at the side of the north. That this signifies good in obscurity, is evident from the signification of "the table upon which were the breads of faces," as being a receptacle of celestial things (see n. 9527), for "the breads" denote celestial good which is from the Lord (n. 9545); and from the signification of "the north," as being obscurity in respect to the truths of faith (n. 3708) and when truth is in obscurity, good also is in obscurity; because in the Lord's spiritual kingdom good appears through truth, and truth is perceived as good when it comes from the understanding into the will. This good is the good of charity toward the neighbor, and is called "spiritual good." It is otherwise in the Lord's celestial kingdom; there good does not appear as good through truth, but is perceived from good itself. From this it can be seen why the table was placed on the side toward the north, and the lampstand on the side toward the south. But see what has been said and shown on this subject just above (n.9684).
