1 En die HERE het aan Abram gesê: Gaan jy uit jou land en uit jou familie en uit jou vader se huis, na die land wat Ek jou sal wys.

2 En Ek sal jou 'n groot nasie maak en jou seën en jou naam so groot maak, dat jy 'n seën sal wees.

3 En Ek sal seën diegene wat jou seën, en hom vervloek wat jou vervloek; en in jou sal al die geslagte van die aarde geseën word.

4 Toe het Abram weggetrek soos die HERE hom gesê het, en Lot het saam met hom getrek. En Abram was vyf en sewentig jaar oud by sy vertrek uit Haran.

5 En Abram het Sarai, sy vrou, en Lot, sy broerskind, geneem en al hulle besittings wat hulle bymekaargemaak en die slawe wat hulle in Haran verwerf het, en hulle het uitgetrek om na die land Kanaän te gaan en in die land Kanaän gekom.

6 En Abram het deur die land getrek na die plek Sigem, tot by die terpentynboom More. Die Kanaäniete was toe in die land.

7 Daarop verskyn die HERE aan Abram en : Aan jou nageslag sal Ek hierdie land gee. Toe bou hy daar 'n altaar vir die HERE wat aan hom verskyn het.

8 En daarvandaan het hy verder versit na die gebergte oos van Bet-el en sy tent opgeslaan tussen Bet-el aan die weste-- en Ai aan die oostekant, en daar vir die HERE 'n altaar gebou en die Naam van die HERE aangeroep.

9 Daarna het Abram al verder na die Suidland weggetrek.

10 En daar was hongersnood in die land, sodat Abram na Egipte afgetrek het om daar as vreemdeling te vertoef; want die hongersnood was swaar in die land.

11 En toe hy op die punt staan om Egipte in te trek, het hy met sy vrou Sarai gespreek: Kyk, ek weet dat jy 'n vrou is mooi van aansien.

12 As die Egiptenaars jou nou sien, sal hulle : Dit is sy vrou en hulle sal my doodmaak en jou laat lewe.

13 tog jy is my suster, dat dit met my goed kan gaan ter wille van jou en ek om jou ontwil in die lewe kan bly.

14 Toe Abram dan in Egipte gekom het, sien die Egiptenaars dat die vrou baie mooi was.

15 Ook het die vorste van Farao haar gesien en haar by Farao geprys. En die vrou is na die paleis van Farao geneem.

16 En hy het goed gedoen aan Abram om haar ontwil, sodat hy kleinvee en beeste en esels, slawe en slavinne, eselinne en kamele in besit gekry het.

17 Maar die HERE het Farao en sy huis met groot plae besoek ter wille van Sarai, die vrou van Abram.

18 Daarop laat Farao Abram roep en hy : Wat het jy my nou aangedoen? Waarom het jy my nie te kenne gegee dat sy jou vrou is nie?

19 Waarom het jy gesê: Sy is my suster--sodat ek haar vir my as vrou geneem het? Daar is jou vrou dan nou; neem haar en gaan weg.

20 En Farao het aan enkele manne aangaande hom bevel gegee, en hulle het hom weggebring met sy vrou en sy hele besitting.

Exploring the Meaning of Genesis 12      

Napsal(a) Joe David

The Inner Meaning of Genesis 12

In Genesis 11, we met Abram for the first time, as his genealogy was traced down through the generations from Noah. Abram represents the beginning of a new spiritual state of humankind - a new church that would record preserve important external truths. Those external truths contained internal ones - true ideas about God the way people should live.

These external truths were encoded in stories, first preserved in oral traditions then in written scriptures in the time of Moses. In the current , Abram, goes, as commanded by God, the land of Canaan. In doing this, he effectively starts the Hebrew church (from Eber, Abraham's forebear).

All the geographic places in the land of Canaan its environs had been given spiritual significations by the people of the Most Ancient Church. In the new Word that would be written there, these places would be mentioned by name would signify spiritual ideas.

When Abraham is driven by famine in the land seek refuge in Egypt, it symbolizes a state of initial instruction for this new church. That early instruction is of an external type. Egypt, in the Word, represents scientific knowledge - the natural sciences - which teach the natural level in people.

There are two levels of "story" nested in the symbolism of the literal text. One is the spiritual story of humankind. Another, higher one, is the story of the inner spiritual process that would take place in the life of Jesus Christ. Both stories are traced out in Swedenborg's exegesis of the Word.

Here's an excerpt from his capstone work, True Christian Religion:

The Word has two senses hidden in its literal sense; these are called the spiritual the celestial senses. In the spiritual sense the contents of the Word refer chiefly the church in the celestial sense chiefly the Lord. Again in the spiritual sense its contents refer Divine truth in the celestial sense Divine good. (True Christian Religion 248)

A detailed description of the inner meaning of this chapter begins in Arcana Coelestia 1401.
