1 亞伯蘭返回迦亞伯蘭帶著妻子和所有的一切,以及羅得,一同從埃及上到地去。

2 亞伯蘭有很多牲畜和

3 他從地一站一站往前走,到伯特利去;到伯特利和艾城中間,就是他從前支搭帳棚的地方

4 也是他築頭一座祭壇地方亞伯蘭就在那裡求告耶和華的名。

5 亞伯蘭同行的羅得,也有羊群牛群和帳棚。

6 亞伯蘭與羅得分手那地容不下他們在一起;因為他們的財物很多,所以他們再也不能在一起。

7 牧養亞伯蘭牲畜的和牧養羅得牲畜的,起了紛爭;當時迦南人和比利洗人還在那地。

8 亞伯蘭就對羅得:“你我之間,切不可紛爭;你的牧人和我的牧人之間,也不可紛爭,因為我們是至親。

9 全地不都是在你面前嗎?請你離開我吧!你若向左,我就向右;你若向右,我就向左。”

10 羅得舉目,約旦河整個平原,直到瑣珥,都有水灌溉;在耶和華毀滅所多瑪和蛾摩拉之前,這地好像耶和華的園子,也像埃及地一樣。

11 羅得選擇了約旦河整個平原,於是向東移動,他們就彼此分開了。

12 亞伯蘭迦南地;羅得在平原的城市中,漸漸挪移帳棚,直到所多瑪

13 耶和華看來,所多瑪人是罪大惡極的。

14 亞伯蘭獲得之應許羅得離開亞伯蘭耶和華亞伯蘭:“你要舉目,從你所在的地方向東西

15 見的地方,我都要賜你和你的後裔,直到永遠

16 我要使你的後裔好像地上灰塵那麼多;若能數算地上的灰塵,才能數算你的後裔。

17 起來,縱橫走遍這地,因為我必把這地賜你。”

18 於是,亞伯蘭漸漸挪移帳棚,到希伯崙幔利的橡樹附近,在那裡居住,也在那裡為耶和華築了一座祭壇


Exploring the Meaning of 創世記 13      

Napsal(a) Emanuel Swedenborg

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

AC 1535. This chapter treats of the external man in the Lord which was to be conjoined with His internal man. The external man is the Human Essence, the internal is the Divine essence. The former is here represented by Lot, but the latter by Abram.

AC 1536. There is here described the state of the external man such as it was in childhood, when first imbued with knowledges (scientifica et cognitiones)--that it thence advanced more and more to conjunction with the internal man (verses 1 to 4).

AC 1537. But that there were still many things in His external man that impeded the conjunction (verses 5 to 7); from which, however, He desired to be separated (verses 8, 9).

AC 1538. That the external man appeared to the Lord such as it is in its beauty when conjoined with the internal; and also such as it is when not conjoined (verses 10 to 13).)

AC 1539. A promise that when the external man was conjoined with the internal, that is, when the Lord‘s Human Essence "as conjoined with His Divine Essence, all power and authority (potestas) should be given to Him (verses 14 to 17). Concerning the Lord’s interior perception (verse 18).
