FOUR MIGHTY ONES

Yale Center for British ArtBook of Urizen
Copy A, Plate 4

1794
In 1794 and 1795 Blake was printing copies of the Book of Urizen with two images in which we see his Four Zoas whom he was later to develop into the Four Mighty Ones. The were present to Blake in embryonic form before they came to dominate his thinking and writing. The beginning of the Four Zoas gives further definition of the nature of man's psyche. The unity of the Four Mighty ones is associated with the unity in Eden of the Father, the Son and all in whom He lives. The Brotherhood of Eden exists because of the Son taking on the Human Form. Blake repeats in Greek the phrase "He dwelt among us."

[John 17 
[21] That they all may be one; as thou, Father, art in me, and I in thee, that they also may be one in us: that the world may believe that thou hast sent me. 
[22] And the glory which thou gavest me I have given them; that they may be one, even as we are one: 
[23] I in them, and thou in me, that they may be made perfect in one; and that the world may know that thou hast sent me, and hast loved them, as thou hast loved me.]

"and dwelt among us"
