1 掃羅為父尋驢有一個便雅憫,名叫基士,是亞別的兒子。亞別是洗羅的兒子,洗羅是比歌拉的兒子,比歌拉是亞斐亞的兒子。(這便雅憫是個大財主。)

2 他有一個兒子,名叫掃羅,既年輕又英俊;在以色列人中,沒有一個能比他更英俊的。他比出一個頭。

3 掃羅的父親基士有幾頭母驢走失了,他就對他的兒子掃羅:“你帶個僕人,動身去尋找母驢吧!”

4 掃羅走遍以法蓮地,又走遍沙利沙地,但他們都沒有到。他們又走遍沙琳地,母驢也不在那裡;又走遍便雅憫地,還是不到。

5 求見撒母耳他們到了蘇弗地,掃羅對跟隨他的僕人:“我們回去吧,恐怕我父親不為母驢掛心,反而為我們擔憂了。”

6 對他:“看哪,這城裡有一位,很受敬重,他所的,都必應驗。現在,我們到他那裡去吧,也許他會告訴我們當走的。”

7 掃羅對僕:“如果我們去,有甚麼可以送給那呢?因為我們袋裡的食物都已經用盡了,也沒有禮物可以送給那我們還有甚麼呢?”

8 回答掃羅:“看哪!我裡有三克子,可以送,請他告訴我們應該走的。”

9 從前在以色列中,有去求問的時候,就這樣:“來,我們去見先見吧。”因為今天稱為先知的,從前稱為先見。

10 掃羅對僕:“你。來,我們去吧!”於是他們到那所住的城裡去。

11 他們正上山坡要進城的時候,就遇見幾個少女出來打。他們就問那些少女:“先見在這裡嗎?”

12 那些少女回答他們:“在這裡!他就在你們前面,現在去吧!他今天正到這城裡,因為今天在邱壇上,人民有獻祭的事。

13 你們一進城,在他登上邱壇祭物之前,必遇見他。因為他未到,眾人不能先,他必先為祭物祝謝,然客人才可以。現在你們上去吧!今天,你們必可遇見他。”

14 耶和華預先指示撒母耳於是二人上那城去;他們正進城的時候,撒母耳就迎著他們出,要上邱壇去。

15 ,在掃羅到的前一天耶和華已經啟示撒母耳說:

16 明天大約這個時候,我要差派一個從便雅憫地到你那裡去,你要立他作我子民以色列人的領袖。他要拯我的子民脫離非利士人。我眷顧了我的子民,因為他們的哀求已經達到我這裡。”

17 撒母耳見了掃羅耶和華就對撒母耳:“你,這就是我對你所的那,他要統治我的子民。”

18 撒母耳與掃羅會面掃羅在城門口,走撒母耳跟前,:“請告訴我先見的家在哪裡?”

19 撒母耳回答掃羅:“我就是先見,請你在我前面上邱壇去。今天你們要與我一同飯,明早晨我就送你回去。你心裡的一切事,我都會告訴你。

20 至於你前失了的母驢,你不必為牠們擔,因為都已經到了。以色列眾人所渴求的是誰呢?不是你和你的父家嗎?”

21 掃羅回答:“我不是以色列眾支派中最微小的便雅憫人嗎?我的家族不是便雅憫支派的家族中最微小的嗎?你為甚麼對我這樣的呢?”

22 撒母耳把掃羅掃羅的領進了客廳,使他們在客中的首位;那裡約有三十

23 撒母耳對廚師:“我交你,吩咐你存放好的那一份祭肉,現在可以拿來。”

24 廚師就把那條腿肉拿上來,擺在掃羅面前。撒母耳:“這是為你留下的,現在擺在你面前,請吧!因為這是我邀請眾人的時候,特地為這時刻保留的。”於是,當掃羅就與撒母耳一同飯。

25 他們從邱壇來,進到城裡;撒母耳和掃羅在房頂上說話。

26 他們清起來;天快亮的時候,撒母耳在房頂上呼叫掃羅:“起來吧,我要送你回去。”掃羅起來。於是,他與撒母耳人一起到外面去。

27 他們到城邊的時候,撒母耳對掃羅:“吩咐你的僕人先走。(僕人就先走了。)你暫且在這裡,我好把講給你。”

Exploring the Meaning of 1_Samuel 9      

In this chapter we are introduced to Saul, the son of Kish, from the tribe of Benjamin. He was outstandingly handsome, and a whole head taller than everyone else.

One day he was out searching for his father’s lost donkeys. It became a long journey, with no success. Saul was becoming more and more desperate, when his servant told him that nearby was a man of God, who might be able to show them the way. That man was Samuel. Saul made sure that he had a suitable offering to bring to Samuel, who was at that time called a seer, another name for a prophet.

On that day, Samuel was on his way to preside over a sacrifice. The Lord had told him that he would encounter the man who would be anointed commander of the people and save them from the Philistines. When he saw Saul, he immediately recognized him as this man. He invited Saul to the sacrifice, and told him that the donkeys Saul was searching for were safe. Saul ate with Samuel, who gave him the best of the meat offering. The next day Samuel asked Saul to wait a moment before leaving, and then Samuel delivered the Lord’s message.

Throughout the story, high places are mentioned. Samuel invites Saul to accompany him to a high place, and later to a rooftop. Swedenborg writes that this is representative of a king. Saul became king of the Israelites (see Spiritual Experiences 2472).

Another interesting aspect of the story is its mention of Saul’s attractive appearance. We as humans are often drawn to things which seem attractive to us. In each of us there are two parts: one part is external or sensual, and the other is internal or spiritual. We cannot fully understand the Lord when we are only thinking from the external part of ourselves. When this part of ourselves dominates, the Lord can seem distant. We need the spiritual part of us to be awake to develop a new relationship with God (see Heaven and Hell 85).

The idea of having a king, Saul, may have seemed attractive to the Israelites. But it may not have been the best idea for their relationship with God. In the previous chapter we learned that by transitioning from having a prophet to having a king, the Israelites prioritized one aspect of their relationship with God over another: faith over charity, or truth over goodness. In reality, we need both.

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。

按照瑞典博格的说法,时间和空间不存在于精神现实中,它们是纯粹的自然事物,只存在于物质层面。这就意味着,一个精神性的东西不可能在时间上的另一个精神性的东西 "之后 "发生,因为没有时间。而一个精神性的东西也不可能在空间上 "追随 "另一个精神性的东西,因为没有空间。 相反,灵性的现实是建立在灵性状态的基础上,或天使的爱和思想。这些爱和思想以因果链的方式连接在一起,天使们的体验就像我们体验时间一样;一个思想在精神层面上流向另一个思想,而天使们感觉到这种进步,就像我们感觉到一个时刻流向另一个时刻的进步一样。当天使有类似的思想和感觉时,他们体验到的亲近感和我们对肉体亲近感的体验是非常相同的;他们对 "空间 "的概念是整个精神世界中的灵魂所拥有的思想和情感的变化。 当《圣经》将某件事情描述为 "后边 "的东西时,那么,属灵的意义就与属灵状态的递进有关;它是在前边的东西基础上产生的新的属灵状态。由于较高的状态会流入较低的状态,所以 "之后 "的东西往往是较低的、较外在的状态。例如,内心深处对他人的善的渴望,会自动地流向具体的想法,即我们可以做的具体的善事。那么,这些具体的想法,就会 "在 "善的欲望之后。

油在圣经中代表着主的爱,所以用油膏涂抹某人(或某物)是使这个人(或物)成为主的代表。当然,在最终的层面上,主自己,即耶稣,被称为 "受膏者",与 "弥赛亚 "或 "基督 "有类似的含义。作为受膏者,意味着他就是爱本身,通过神圣的真实思想呈现给我们。国王和祭司受膏的事实意味着他们也可以代表来自美好的爱,在更低的层次上代表真正的思想。
