1 神与亚伯兰立约

2 亚伯兰:“耶和华啊,我一向都没有孩子,你还能赐我什么呢?这样,承受我家业的,就是大马士革人以利以谢了。”

3 亚伯兰:“你既然没有我后裔,那生在我家中的人,就是我的继承人了。”

4 耶和华的又临到亚伯兰:“这人必不会作你的继承人;你亲生的才会是你的继承人。”

5 于是领他到外面去,:“你向观看,点众,看你能不能把它们得清楚。”又对他:“你的后裔将要这样众多。”

6 亚伯兰信耶和华耶和华就以此算为他的了。

7 耶和华又对亚伯兰:“我是耶和华,曾经把你从迦勒底的吾珥领出来,为要把这地赐你作产业。”

8 亚伯兰:“耶和华啊,我凭什么能知道我必得这地为业呢?”

9 耶和华对他:“你给我拿一头岁的母,一只岁的母山羊,一只岁的公绵,一只斑鸠和一只雏鸽。”

10 亚伯兰就把这一切拿了来,每样都从当中劈开,一半一半相对摆列;只是却没有劈开。

11 有鸷鸟来,落在这些尸骸上,亚伯兰就把它们吓走了。

12 日落的时候,亚伯兰沉沉地睡着了,忽然有可怕的黑暗落在他身上。

13 耶和华对亚伯兰:“你要确实地知道,你的后裔必在外地寄居,也必服事那地的人,那地的人苦待他们年。

14 他们所要服事的那国,我要亲自惩罚。来他们必带着很多财物,从那里出来。

15 你必得享寿,被人埋葬,平平安安地回到你列祖那里。

16 到了第四,他们必回到这里,因为亚摩利人的罪孽还没有满盈。”

17 日落天黑的时候,忽然有冒烟的炉和烧着的把,从那些肉块中经过。

18 就在那时候,耶和华亚伯兰立约:“我已经把这地赐你的后裔了,就是从埃及直到幼发拉底河之地;

19 就是基尼人、基尼洗人、甲摩尼人、

20 赫人、比利洗人、利乏音人、

21 亚摩利人、迦南人、革迦撒人、耶布斯人之地。”

  

Exploring the Meaning of 创世记 15      

Napsal(a) Emanuel Swedenborg

Here are some excerpts from Swedenborg's "Arcana Coelestia" that help explain the inner meaning of this chapter:

AC 1778. Here in the internal sense are continued the things concerning the Lord after He had endured in childhood the most severe combats of temptations, which were directed against the love which He cherished toward the whole human race, and in particular toward the church; and therefore being anxious concerning their future state a promise was made Him but it was shown at the same time what the state of the church would become toward its end when it would begin to expire; but that still a new church should revive, which would take the place of the former, and the heavenly kingdom would be immensely increased.

AC 1779. The Lord‘s consolation after the combats of temptations described (verse 1).

AC 1780. The Lord’s complaint respecting the church, that it was in externals only (verses 2, 3). A promise concerning an internal church (verse 4). Concerning its multiplication (verse 5). That the Lord is righteousness (verse 6). And unto Him alone belongs the kingdom in the heavens and on earth (verse 7).

AC 1781. And as He desired to be assured that the human race would be saved (verse 8), it was shown Him how the case is with the church, in general, specifically, and in particular (verses 9 to 17).

AC 1782. The "heifer," "she-goat," and "ram," are the representatives of the celestial things of the church; the "turtledove" and the "young pigeon" are the representatives of its spiritual things (verse 9). The church was on one side, and the Lord on the other (verse 10). The Lord would dissipate evils and falsities (verse 11). But the falsities would still infest it (verses 12, 13). From these there should be deliverance (verse 14). Thus the Lord received consolation (verse 15). But that evils would take possession (verse 16). And at last nothing hut falsities and cupidities would reign (verse 17). Then would come the Lord‘s kingdom, and a new church, the extension of which is described (verse 18). The falsities and evils to be expelled from it are the nations named (verses 19 to 21).
