1 击磐出(民20:1-13)

2 因此人民与摩西争吵,:“我们吧。”摩西对他们:“你们为什么与我争吵呢?你们为什么试探耶和华呢?”

3 人民在那里渴望喝,就向摩西发怨言,:“你为什么把我们埃及领上来,使我们我们的儿女,以及我们的牲畜都呢?”

4 摩西耶和华呼求,:“我要怎样对待这人民呢?他们几乎要用石头打死我了。”

5 耶和华回答摩西:“你要到人民的面前,要带着以色列的几个长老和你一起,里要拿着你先前击打河水的杖。

6 看哪,我必在何烈山那里的磐石上站在你面前;你要击打磐石,就必有从磐石流出来,使人民可以。”摩西就在以色列的长老眼前这样行了。

7 他给那地方起名玛撒,又米利巴,因为以色列人在那里争吵,又因为他们试探耶和华,说:“耶和华是不是在我们中间呢?”

8 与亚玛力人作战那时亚玛力人来了,在利非订和以色列人争战。

9 摩西对约书亚:“你要为我们选出人来,出去亚玛力人争战;明天我要站在山顶上,里拿着的杖。”

10 于是,约书亚照着摩西吩咐他的行了,去亚玛力人争战;摩西亚伦户珥都上了山顶。

11 摩西举起来的时候,以色列人就得胜;摩西放下来的时候,亚玛力人就得胜。

12 可是摩西的疲乏了,他们就搬块石头,放在摩西下面,他就在上面;亚伦和户珥,个,扶着摩西的;这样,他的两就稳,直到日落的时候。

13 约书亚用刀打败了亚玛力王和他的人民。

14 耶和华摩西:“我要把亚玛力的名号从完全抹掉;你要把话上作记念,也要告诉约亚。”

15 摩西筑了一座祭坛,给它起名耶和华尼西”。

16 摩西又:“向耶和华的旌旗举耶和华必世世代和亚玛力人争战。”


Exploring the Meaning of 出埃及记 17      

Napsal(a) Emanuel Swedenborg

Arcana Coelestia 8554. In the preceding chapter, in the internal sense, the third temptation was treated of - that there was a lack of good. This having been given them, in the internal sense in this chapter the fourth temptation is treated of - that there was a lack of truth. This temptation is signified by "the murmuring of the sons of Israel because they had no water;" and therefore the truth of faith was given them by the Lord, which is signified by "the water out of the rock of Horeb."

Arcana Coelestia 8555. Then follows the combat of the falsity that is from evil against the truth and good of faith, which combat is represented by the fighting of Amalek against Israel. That they who are in the truth and good of faith conquer when they look upward to the Lord, and that they yield when they look downward, is represented by the sons of Israel conquering so long as Moses kept his hands raised, and by their yielding when he let them down.
