1 擊磐出(民20:1~13)以色列全體會眾都照著耶和華的吩咐,一站一站,從汛的曠野起程,在利非訂安營。在那裡人民沒有

2 因此人民與摩西爭吵,:“我們吧。”摩西對他們:“你們為甚麼與我爭吵呢?你們為甚麼試探耶和華呢?”

3 人民在那裡渴望喝,就向摩西發怨言,:“你為甚麼把我們埃及領上來,使我們我們的兒女,以及我們的牲畜都呢?”

4 摩西耶和華呼求,:“我要怎樣對待這人民呢?他們幾乎要用石頭打死我了。”

5 耶和華回答摩西:“你要到人民的面前,要帶著以色列的幾個長老和你一起,裡要拿著你先前擊打河水的杖。

6 看哪,我必在何烈山那裡的磐石上站在你面前;你要擊打磐石,就必有從磐石流出來,使人民可以。”摩西就在以色列的長老眼前這樣行了。

7 他給那地方起名瑪撒,又米利巴,因為以色列人在那裡爭吵,又因為他們試探耶和華,說:“耶和華是不是在我們中間呢?”

8 與亞瑪力人作戰那時亞瑪力人來了,在利非訂和以色列人爭戰。

9 摩西對約書亞:“你要為我們選出人來,出去亞瑪力人爭戰;明天我要站在山頂上,裡拿著的杖。”

10 於是,約書亞照著摩西吩咐他的行了,去亞瑪力人爭戰;摩西亞倫戶珥都上了山頂。

11 摩西舉起來的時候,以色列人就得勝;摩西放下來的時候,亞瑪力人就得勝。

12 可是摩西的疲乏了,他們就搬塊石頭,放在摩西下面,他就在上面;亞倫和戶珥,個,扶著摩西的;這樣,他的兩就穩,直到日落的時候。

13 約書亞用刀打敗了亞瑪力王和他的人民。

14 耶和華摩西:“我要把亞瑪力的名號從完全抹掉;你要把話上作記念,也要告訴約亞。”

15 摩西築了一座祭壇,給它起名耶和華尼西”。

16 摩西又:“向耶和華的旌旗舉耶和華必世世代和亞瑪力人爭戰。”


Exploring the Meaning of 出埃及記 17      

Napsal(a) Emanuel Swedenborg

Arcana Coelestia 8554. In the preceding chapter, in the internal sense, the third temptation was treated of - that there was a lack of good. This having been given them, in the internal sense in this chapter the fourth temptation is treated of - that there was a lack of truth. This temptation is signified by "the murmuring of the sons of Israel because they had no water;" and therefore the truth of faith was given them by the Lord, which is signified by "the water out of the rock of Horeb."

Arcana Coelestia 8555. Then follows the combat of the falsity that is from evil against the truth and good of faith, which combat is represented by the fighting of Amalek against Israel. That they who are in the truth and good of faith conquer when they look upward to the Lord, and that they yield when they look downward, is represented by the sons of Israel conquering so long as Moses kept his hands raised, and by their yielding when he let them down.
