1 神的儿子和人的女子

2 的众子见人的女子美丽,就随意挑选,娶作妻子

3 耶和华:“人既然是属体的,我的灵就不永远住在他里面,但他的日子还有一二十年。”

4 在那些日子,有巨人在地上;儿子和人的女子结合,就生了上古英武有名的人物。

5 人类败坏、神灭世耶和华见人在地上的罪恶很大,终日里思念的,尽都是邪恶的。

6 于是,耶和华后悔造人在地上,中忧伤。

7 耶和华:“我要把我创造的人,从地上消灭;无论是人或牲畜,是昆虫或是天空的,我都要消灭,因为我后悔造了他们。”

8 只有挪亚在耶和华眼前蒙恩。

9 以下是挪亚的后。挪亚是个,是当时一个完全。挪亚和同行。

10 挪亚生了儿子,就是、含、雅弗。

11 当时,世界在面前败坏了,地上满了强暴。

12 大地,见世界已经败坏了;全人类在地上所行的都是败坏的。

13 命挪亚建造方舟对挪亚:“在我面前全人类的尽头已经到,因为地上由于他们的缘故满了强暴。看哪,我要把他们和世界一起毁灭。

14 你要用歌斐做一艘方舟。方舟里面要做一些舱房;方舟的内外都要涂上沥青。

15 你要这样做方舟:方舟要十三公尺,宽二十二公尺,十三公尺。

16 方舟上面四周要做透光口,四十四公寸;方舟的要开在旁边;方舟要分为上中下层建造。

17 看哪,我要使洪临到地上,消灭的生物,就是有生气的活物;在地上的都必定要死。

18 我要和你立约。你可以进入方舟;你和你的儿子妻子和儿媳,都可以和你一同进入方舟。

19 所有的活物,你要把每样一对,就是一公一母,进方舟,好和你一同保全生命。

20 各从其类,牲畜各从其类,地上所有爬行的动物,各从其类,每样一对,要到你那里,好保全生命。

21 你要拿各种可的食物,积存起来,好作你和它们的食物。”

22 挪亚就这样作了;吩咐他的,他都照样作了。

  

Exploring the Meaning of 创世记 6      

Napsal(a) Emanuel Swedenborg

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

AC 554. The subject here treated of is the state of the people before the flood.

AC 555. That with man, where the church was, cupidities, which are the "daughters"-began to reign. Also that they conjoined the doctrinal things of faith with their cupidities, and thus confirmed themselves in evils and falses, which is signified by "the sons of God taking to themselves wives of the daughters of man" (verses 1, 2).

AC 556. And whereas there were thus no remains of good and truth left, it is foretold that man should be differently formed, in order that he might have remains, which are "a hundred and twenty years" (verse 3).

AC 557. Those who immersed the doctrinal things of faith in their cupidities, and in consequence of this as well as of the love of self conceived dreadful persuasions of their own greatness in comparison with others, are signified by the "Nephilim" (verse 4).

AC 558. In consequence of this there no longer remained any will or perception of good and truth (verse 5).

AC 559. The mercy of the Lord is described by "repenting and grieving at heart" (verse 6). That they became such that their cupidities and persuasions must needs prove fatal to them (verse 7). Therefore in order that the human race might be saved, a new church should arise, which is "Noah" (verse 8).

AC 599. The subject here treated of is the state of the church called "Noah," before its regeneration.

AC 600. The man of that church is described, that he was such that he could be regenerated (verse 9); but that there arose thence three kinds of doctrine, which are "Shem, Ham, and Japheth" (verse 10).

AC 601. That the man who was left from the Most Ancient Church could not be regenerated, on account of his direful persuasions and foul cupidities (verses 11, 12); whereby he would utterly destroy himself (verse 13).

AC 602. But the man of the church called "Noah," who is described by the "ark," was not so (verse 14); and the remains with him are described by the measures (verse 15); the things of his understanding, by the "window," "door," and "mansions" (verse 16).

AC 603. That he would be preserved when the rest would perish by an inundation of evil and falsity (verse 17).

AC 604. And that the truths and goods which were with him would be saved (verse 18); and thus whatever was of the understanding and whatever was of the will, by regeneration (verses 19, 20); for receiving which he was to be prepared (verse 21); and that it was so done (verse 22).
