1 罗得接待两位天使

2 :“我啊,请你们到仆人的家里住一夜,你们的,清起来再赶。”他们回答:“不,我们要在街上过夜。”

3 但由于罗得再三的请求,他们才肯跟他回去,进了他的家。罗得为他们预备了筵席,无酵饼,他们就吃了

4 所多玛的罪恶他们还没有躺下睡觉,那城里的人,就是所多玛的男人,无论是年轻的或是年老的,都从各处来围住罗得的房子。

5 他们呼唤罗得,对他:“今晚到你这里的人在哪里?把他们我们要与他们同房。”

6 罗得出来,随手把上,到口众人那里,

7 :“我的弟兄们,请不要作恶。

8 看哪,我有两个女儿,是还没有和男人同房的,让我把她们,你们高兴怎样待她们,就怎样行吧!只是这两个,因为他们是到舍的,你们不可向他们作什么。”

9 :“滚开!”又:“这里寄居的,竟作起审判官;现在我们要害你,比害他们还要厉害。”众就向罗得极力拥挤,他们冲前要打破

10 那两个人却伸出,把罗得拉进里去,并把上。

11 然后击打那些外的人,使他们无论老少,都眼目昏眩,以致不到口。

12 那二人对罗得:“你这里还有什么人没有?无论是女婿、儿女,或是城中所有属你的人,都要把他们从这地方带走。

13 我们快要毁灭这地方了,因为控告他们的声音在耶和华面前实在很大,所以耶和华我们来毁灭这地方。”

14 于是罗得出去,告诉娶了他女儿的女婿:“你们起来离开这地方;因为耶和华就要毁灭这城。”但是他的女婿以为他在开玩笑。

15 天使救罗得离开所多玛天快亮的时候,两位天使催促罗得说:“起来,带你的妻子,和你这里的两个女儿出去,免得你因这城的罪孽被除灭。”

16 罗得还在犹豫不决的时候,人因为耶和华宽容罗得,就拉着罗得的,和他妻子的,以及他两个女儿,把他们带出来,安置在城外。

17 二人把他们带出来以,其中一位:“逃命吧,不要回头,也不可在这片平原上,要逃到上去,免得你被除灭。”

18 罗得对他们:“我啊!请不要这样。

19 看哪,你仆人既然在你眼前蒙恩,你又向我大施慈爱,活我的性命;可是我还逃不到上,恐怕这灾祸就追上了我,我就死了

20 看哪,这座城很,可以逃到那里,那只是一座小城,请让我逃到那里去。那不是一座小城吗?这样我就可以活命了。”

21 有一位天使对他:“这事我也答应你,你所的这城,我必不倾覆

22 你赶逃到那里去,因为你还没有到达那里,我就不能作什么。”因此那城名琐珥。

23 所多玛与蛾摩拉被倾覆罗得到达琐珥的时候,太阳已经从地面升上来了

24 当时,耶和华就使硫磺,从耶和华那里降与所多玛和蛾摩拉;

25 把那些城和全平原,以及城中所有的居民,连地上生长的,都毁灭了。

26 罗得的妻子一望,就变成了柱。

27 亚伯拉罕起来,到他从前站在耶和华面前的地方

28 所多玛和蛾摩拉,以及平原全地观望。不料,见那地有烟上升,好像烧窑的烟一样。

29 毁灭那平原上的众城,倾覆罗得所过的众城的时候,记念亚伯拉罕,把罗得从倾覆中救出来。

30 摩押人和亚扪人的起源罗得因为怕在琐珥,就与他的两个女儿,一同离开琐珥上了在那里;他和两个女儿在一个洞里。

31 大女儿对小女儿:“我们的爸爸已经老了,这地又没有男人可以按着世上的常规进我们亲近。

32 来吧,我们可以叫父亲喝酒,然后与他同睡,这样我们可以借着父亲保全后裔。”

33 当夜,她们叫父亲喝酒,大女儿就进去与父亲同睡,她什么时候躺下,什么时候起来,她父亲都不知道

34 第二天,大女儿对小女儿:“昨夜我与父亲同睡了,今夜我们再叫父亲喝酒,你可以进去与他同睡,这样我们可以借着父亲保全后裔。”

35 当夜,她们又叫父亲喝酒,小女儿就起来,与父亲同睡;她什么时候躺下,什么时候起来,她父亲都不知道

36 这样,罗得的两个女儿从她们的父亲怀了孕。

37 大女儿生了一个儿子,给他起名摩押,就是现在摩押人的始祖。

38 小女儿也生了一个儿子,给他起名便.亚米,就是现在亚扪人的始祖。

  

Exploring the Meaning of 创世记 19      

Napsal(a) Emanuel Swedenborg

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

AC 2312. In this chapter, in the internal sense, by "Lot‘s is described the state of the Spiritual Church which is in the good of charity but in external worship: how in course of time it declines.

AC 2313. The First State of that church: that they are in the good of charity and acknowledge the Lord, and that from Him they are confirmed in good (verses 1 to 3); and are saved (verse 12). The Second State: that with them evils begin to act against goods, but they are powerfully withheld from evils and kept in goods by the Lord (verses 14 to 16). Their weakness is described (verse 17); that they are saved (verse 19). The Third State: that they no longer think and act from the affection of good, but from the affection of truth (verses 18 to 20); and that they are saved (verse 23). The Fourth State: that the affection of truth perishes, which is Lot’s wife becoming a pillar of salt (verse 26). The Fifth State: that an impure good, or a good of falsity, succeeds, which is Lot in the cave of the mountain (verse 30). The Sixth State: that even this good is still more adulterated and falsified (verses 31 to 33); and the truth likewise (verses 34, 35). That therefrom there is conceived and born a certain semblance of a church whose good, so called, is "Moab," and whose truth, also so called, is the "son of Ammon" (verses 36 to 38).

AC 2314. Further: in the internal sense, by the "inhabitants of Sodom" is described the state of those within the same church who are against the good of charity, and how in course of time evil and falsity increase with them until they have nothing but evil and falsity.

AC 2315. Their First State: that they are against the good of charity and against the Lord (verses 4, 5). Their Second State: that although informed concerning the good of charity and concerning the delights of its affections which they should enjoy, they are obstinate and reject good (verses 6 to 8). That they also endeavor to destroy the very good of charity itself, but that the Lord protects it (verses 9, 10). The Third State: that at last they become such that they cannot even see truth and good, still less that truth leads to good (verse 11). That they are possessed by evil and falsity, so that they cannot but perish (verse 13). The Fourth State: their destruction (verse 24); and that all goods and truths are separated from them (verse 25).

AC 2316. That the good are separated from the evil, and that the good are saved through the Lord‘s Human made Divine (verses 27-29).
