1 耶和华呼召撒母耳

2 一天,以利躺卧在自己的地方,他的眼睛早已昏花,不能得清楚了。

3 还没有熄灭,撒母耳躺卧在耶和华的殿中,就是安放约柜的地方。

4 耶和华呼唤撒母耳,他:“我在这里。”

5 他就跑到以利那里,:“你呼唤我,我在这里。”以利:“我没有呼唤你,回去睡吧。”他就回去睡了。

6 耶和华再次呼唤撒母耳,他就起来走到以利那里,:“你呼唤我,我在这里。”以利:“我儿,我没有呼唤你,回去睡吧。”

7 那时撒母耳还没有认识耶和华,因为耶和华的还没有向他启示。

8 耶和华三次呼唤撒母耳,他又起来,走到以利那里,:“你呼唤我,我在这里。”以利就明白是耶和华呼唤这孩子。

9 因此以利对撒母耳:“去睡吧!如果他呼唤你,你就:‘耶和华啊!请仆人。’”于是撒母耳回去,仍然睡在自己的地方

10 耶和华站着,像前几次一样呼唤:“撒母耳,撒母耳!”他回答:“请仆人。”

11 耶和华对撒母耳:“看哪!我要在以色列中行一件事,见的人,必耳鸣;

12 在那日,我必在以利身上彻底实现我论到他的家所的一切话。

13 我曾告诉他:‘我必按着他所知道的罪孽永远处罚他的家。这罪就是他的儿子自招咒诅,他也不责备他们。’

14 所以我向以利家起了誓:‘以利家的罪孽永远不能用祭物或供物来买赎。’”

15 撒母耳将默示告诉以利撒母耳睡到天亮,他就开了耶和华殿的。但撒母耳不敢把异象告诉以利。

16 以利呼唤撒母耳,:“我儿撒母耳!”他回答:“我在这里。”

17 以利:“耶和华对你了什么呢?你不要向我隐瞒,他对你所的一切,如果你向我隐瞒一句,愿对付你,并且加倍对付你。”

18 于是撒母耳把一切都告诉了以利,一句也没有隐瞒。以利:“他是耶和华,他看怎么,就怎么行吧。”

19 撒母耳被立为先知撒母耳渐渐长大,耶和华与他同在,使他所说的一切,没有一句落空。

20 从但到别是巴,以色列人知道撒母耳被耶和华确立为先知

21 耶和华又在示罗显现,因为耶和华在示罗借着他的向撒母耳启示自己。

Exploring the Meaning of 1_Samuel 3      

Chapter 3 features the beautiful story of the “Call of Samuel”. The story begins when young Samuel hears a voice calling to him in the night, as he lies down to sleep. Thinking that it must be Eli calling, Samuel runs to Eli, who is now old and blind, to ask what he wants. Eli says that he didn't call, and tells Samuel to return to bed. This happens two more times, and each time Samuel hears the voice calling, he goes to Eli. On the third occasion, Eli realizes that it must be the Lord's voice that Samuel is hearing. Eli then instructs him to respond to the voice with the words, “Speak, Lord, for your servant hears.” When the Lord calls him again, this is how Samuel responds.

God’s words to Samuel are clear. Because Eli’s sons had done things that were vile, and Eli had not restrained them, no amount of sacrifice could spare them from the consequences. In the morning, Eli begs Samuel to share what the Lord said to him. After Samuel shares God’s message, Eli accepts that the Lord would do to him and his family as He saw fit.

Samuel is called by the Lord three times before he realizes the nature of the voice, and answers. This is an example of the numeric symbolism found throughout Scripture. In this story, the number three represents a form of Divine completeness. Therefore when Samuel is called three times, it represents the completion of a personal process, resulting in a new ability to receive God’s message (see Apocalypse Revealed 505).

Swedenborg’s writings explain that to “hear” represents to perceive, to learn and come to understand. When Samuel hears and replies to the Lord, he is demonstrating that he is willing to listen to and understand God. For us, it's a similar thing. We may not hear the voice of God calling in the night, but we can make space in our lives to try to tune in to his message, in the Word, and in good, wise people who we can learn from.

The expression “to hear” can also signify to obey, and in this story we can see Samuel accepting his role as prophet, i.e. to understand and obey God. So, too, we can recognize His message and begin to live a life of faithful obedience (see Apocalypse Explained 14).

The literal story seems to suggest that the Lord would punish Eli and his sons for the wrongs they had done. However, the truth as shared in Swedenborgian teachings is that the Lord never destroys, or is even angry. Instead, evil distances a person from His protection and therefore leaves them vulnerable to the destruction that comes from the evil itself (see Arcana Coelestia 588).

主是爱本身,以智慧本身的形式表达。爱是他的本质,也是他的全部。智慧-对如何将爱付诸行动的热爱理解-稍微有点外在,为爱提供了一种表达自我的方式。 当圣经说“耶和华”时,它代表的是至高无上的爱,这是主的本质。那爱本身就是一个完整的整体,而爱也是一个,只适用于主的名字。然而,智慧表达在各种各样的思想和观念中,这些著作统称为神的真理。也有许多虚构的神,有时天使和人也可以被称为神(耶和华说摩西将成为亚伦的神)。因此,当圣经称上帝为“上帝”时,多数情况下是指神圣的真理。 在其他情况下,“上帝”指的是所谓的神圣人类。情况是这样的: 作为人类,我们不能直接将主作为上帝的爱来参与。它太强大了,太纯净了。相反,我们必须通过神圣的真理了解他来接近他。因此,神圣的真理是人类形式的主,这是我们可以接近和理解的形式。因此,“上帝”也被用来指代人类这一方面,因为它是真理的表达。
