1 懲罰摩押耶和華這樣:‘摩押犯罪,我必不收回懲罰他的命令;因為他把以東的骸焚燒成灰。

2 我必降摩押,燒毀加略的堡壘;在擾攘、吶喊、吹角聲中,摩押必被消滅。

3 我必剪除他的掌權者,也把他所有的領袖一同死。’這是耶和華的。

4 懲罰猶大耶和華這樣:‘猶大犯罪,我必不收回懲罰他的命令;因為他棄絕耶和華的律法,不遵守他的典章;反被他們列祖跟從的偶像,使他們走錯了

5 我必降猶大,燒毀耶路撒冷的堡壘。’

6 懲罰以色列耶和華這樣:‘以色列犯罪,我必不收回懲罰他的命令;因為他為了人,為了一雙鞋窮人。

7 他們踐踏窮,好像踐踏地面的塵土;他們把困苦應有的權益奪去;兒子父親與同一個女子親近,故意褻瀆我的名。

8 他們在各祭壇旁,躺臥在別人抵押的衣服上面;在他們的殿中,飲用拿剝削回來的錢所買的酒。

9 我不是在他們面前把亞摩利人消滅了嗎?亞摩利人雖像香柏樹大,像橡樹那樣堅固;我卻要滅絕它樹上的果子,拔除樹

10 我不是帶你們出埃及地,領你們在曠野度過四十年,叫你們得著亞摩利人的地為業嗎?

11 我從你們子孫中興起先知,從年輕人中興起拿細耳人;以色列人哪!這不是事實嗎?’這是耶和華的宣告。

12 ‘但你們迫使拿細耳人喝酒,吩咐先知:不要預言

13 看哪!我要使你腳下的地搖蕩,好像滿載禾捆的車子搖蕩一樣。

14 行動迅速的不能逃走,強而有力的不能施展他的勇力,勇士也不能救自己;

15 的人站立不住,跑得快的不能逃走,的也不能救自己。

16 到那日,最勇敢的戰士,也是赤身逃跑。’這是耶和華的宣告。”


Exploring the Meaning of 阿摩司書 2      

Napsal(a) E. Taylor and Helen Kennedy

In the Book of Amos, chapter two begins with the Lord declaring his anger against the people of Moab, Judea, and Israel. They have committed various wrongs against the Lord and the church, despite His efforts to guide them, and the chapter goes on to suggest that the Lord is losing faith in His people.

Verses 1-8 of this chapter describe the specific ways in which people can destroy or misuse the good and truth of the Word.

Verses 1-3 discuss the Moabites specifically. They represent people who corrupt the good and truth of the church, meaning they would twist what they learned from the Word to suit their own selfish purposes. Bones represent natural truths that we can use as a framework to support all higher knowledge that we learn, so the fact that people were ‘burning bones’ means they destroyed their own foundation to gain spiritual knowledge. In verse 3, the Lord says that he will cut off the judge and the prince, meaning that the Moabites’ failure to determine what is good (like the judge), and lead a life based in truth (like the prince) will not stand against the real spiritual principles of the Lord.

Verses 4-5 are about people who destroy celestial things from the Word, by turning their hearts away from the Lord. The people of Judea had believed they were the Lord’s chosen people for so many generations at this point that they grew complacent, and no longer felt they needed to obey the Lord’s commandments.

Verses 6-8 tell what can happen when people pervert spiritual truths from the church, and turn them into falsities. Swedenborg writes that most of the images from these verses - silver, shoes, dust, wine - can all represent either falsity, or only the most external type of truth. The Israelites were turning to these falsities and to their own greed, instead of using the Lord’s truths to help the poor and the meek.

In verses 9-11, the Lord reminds the children of Israel of everything he has done to prepare them for salvation. He fought for them and delivered them from Egypt, lifted up their leaders and prophets, and provided them with the truths they would need in order to be regenerated.

He also shows that He has the strength to punish them, because He’s already overcome the Amorites, who symbolize evil in general (Secrets of Heaven 6306).

Verses 12-16 describe how the Israelites perverted the knowledge the Lord tried to give them. Instead of trusting what the Lord had taught them, they turned to their own self-righteousness for guidance. Since they thought they had all the answers, they corrupted the Nazarites and silenced the prophets. Without a proper understanding of the Lord’s teachings, the people were no longer equipped to fight against evils or to grow spiritually.

At face value, this chapter depicts the Lord as an angry god who will punish those who disobey him. What seems to be anger is actually the Lord fiercely protecting us, and calling us to follow Him. This chapter reminds us to turn our hearts toward the Lord, and to live according to the truths of the Word.

骨头是强壮和支撑性的,为我们的身体提供了一个框架,使运动和行动成为可能。它们也是我们身体中最没有 "生命力 "的部分,它们的大部分结构是由矿物基质构成的。因此,它们代表着我们的精神构成中一个强大的、支持性的、功能性的、但天生近乎于死亡的部分:文字中所说的 "本体"。 本体是我们中感觉到生命是我们自己的一部分,感觉到我们的爱和我们的思想来自于我们自己。这是做人的一个重要而有力的方面;因为它,我们要承担起改革自己的思想和指导自己行动的责任,并感到有能力接近主。这就是 "强大的、支持性的功能 "的部分。但这种自我感觉也是错误的、受骗的,因为事实是,我们的生命来自于主,主是我们爱和思想的源头。这就是 "先天近乎死亡 "的部分。 如果我们只是跟随本体而不仰望主,就会把我们引向地狱般的境界,在这种境界中,我们认为自己是万能的,完全否定了主的存在。骨头,靠着自己的力量,会变得干枯,变脆,完全死亡。然而,如果我们承认主并跟随他,就像在骨头上装上肉,就像在骨头上装上了肉,就有了生命。在这种情况下,骨头--强壮、支持、保护、保护,并尽可能地活着--就代表了本体与智力的关系,也就是我们中把自己的思想视为自己的那部分,但又把它们转向主的那部分。骨头上的肉代表了本体的爱的一面,那部分人把我们的欲望当作自己的欲望,但又利用骨头提供的结构来服侍主。

祭壇
圣经中提到的第一个祭坛是挪亚从方舟中出来后所建造的。在那祭坛上,他把洁净的动物献给了耶和华。山代表着耶和华,因为山是高高在上,我们在与主 "说话 "的时候,必须把自己的思想抬高到属世的事物之上。祭坛是一座小小的人造山,但当用在敬拜的时候,就能唤起这种思想的升起,火和烟被送上来,象征性地送上主。祭坛大多是用未切割的石头做成的。石头代表真理,未被人塑造的石头代表真理,未被人塑造的石头代表来自于道的真理,未被掺杂的真理。清净的兽代表着善事,代表着因为正确而做的慈善行为,而清净的鸟代表着对教义和行为的思考,代表着什么是正确的。所以呈现这些东西,就是承认我们从主那里得到了这些东西,并为这些东西感谢祂。 在以色列人的会幕中,燔祭坛代表善的承认,香坛代表真理。因此,这个大一点的祭坛在门外,是用黄铜做的,代表自然的善,而香坛是用金子做的,代表对耶和华的爱,从耶和华那里来的是真理。

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。
