1 羅得接待兩位天使黃昏的時候,那兩位天使到了所多瑪,當時羅得正所多瑪的城門口。羅得一見他們,就起來迎接他們,俯伏在地,

2 :“我啊,請你們到僕人的家裡住一夜,你們的,清起來再趕。”他們回答:“不,我們要在街上過夜。”

3 但由於羅得再三的請求,他們才肯跟他回去,進了他的家。羅得為他們預備了筵席,無酵餅,他們就吃了

4 所多瑪的罪惡他們還沒有躺下睡覺,那城裡的人,就是所多瑪的男人,無論是年輕的或是年老的,都從各處來圍住羅得的房子。

5 他們呼喚羅得,對他:“今晚到你這裡的人在哪裡?把他們我們要與他們同房。”

6 羅得出來,隨手把上,到口眾人那裡,

7 :“我的弟兄們,請不要作惡。

8 看哪,我有兩個女兒,是還沒有和男人同房的,讓我把她們,你們高興怎樣待她們,就怎樣行吧!只是這兩個,因為他們是到舍的,你們不可向他們作甚麼。”

9 :“滾開!”又:“這裡寄居的,竟作起審判官;現在我們要害你,比害他們還要厲害。”眾就向羅得極力擁擠,他們衝前要打破

10 那兩個人卻伸出,把羅得拉進裡去,並把上。

11 然後擊打那些外的人,使他們無論老少,都眼目昏眩,以致不到口。

12 那二人對羅得:“你這裡還有甚麼人沒有?無論是女婿、兒女,或是城中所有屬你的人,都要把他們從這地方帶走。

13 我們快要毀滅這地方了,因為控告他們的聲音在耶和華面前實在很大,所以耶和華我們來毀滅這地方。”

14 於是羅得出去,告訴娶了他女兒的女婿:“你們起來離開這地方;因為耶和華就要毀滅這城。”但是他的女婿以為他在開玩笑。

15 天使救羅得離開所多瑪天快亮的時候,兩位天使催促羅得說:“起來,帶你的妻子,和你這裡的兩個女兒出去,免得你因這城的罪孽被除滅。”

16 羅得還在猶豫不決的時候,人因為耶和華寬容羅得,就拉著羅得的,和他妻子的,以及他兩個女兒,把他們帶出來,安置在城外。

17 二人把他們帶出來以,其中一位:“逃命吧,不要回頭,也不可在這片平原上,要逃到上去,免得你被除滅。”

18 羅得對他們:“我啊!請不要這樣。

19 看哪,你僕人既然在你眼前蒙恩,你又向我大施慈愛,活我的性命;可是我還逃不到上,恐怕這災禍就追上了我,我就死了

20 看哪,這座城很,可以逃到那裡,那只是一座小城,請讓我逃到那裡去。那不是一座小城嗎?這樣我就可以活命了。”

21 有一位天使對他:“這事我也答應你,你所的這城,我必不傾覆

22 你趕逃到那裡去,因為你還沒有到達那裡,我就不能作甚麼。”因此那城名瑣珥。

23 所多瑪與蛾摩拉被傾覆羅得到達瑣珥的時候,太陽已經從地面升上來了

24 當時,耶和華就使硫磺,從耶和華那裡降與所多瑪和蛾摩拉;

25 把那些城和全平原,以及城中所有的居民,連地上生長的,都毀滅了。

26 羅得的妻子一望,就變成了柱。

27 亞伯拉罕起來,到他從前站在耶和華面前的地方

28 所多瑪和蛾摩拉,以及平原全地觀望。不料,見那地有煙上升,好像燒窯的煙一樣。

29 毀滅那平原上的眾城,傾覆羅得所過的眾城的時候,記念亞伯拉罕,把羅得從傾覆中救出來。

30 摩押人和亞捫人的起源羅得因為怕在瑣珥,就與他的兩個女兒,一同離開瑣珥上了在那裡;他和兩個女兒在一個洞裡。

31 大女兒對小女兒:“我們的爸爸已經老了,這地又沒有男人可以按著世上的常規進我們親近。

32 來吧,我們可以叫父親喝酒,然後與他同睡,這樣我們可以藉著父親保全後裔。”

33 當夜,她們叫父親喝酒,大女兒就進去與父親同睡,她甚麼時候躺下,甚麼時候起來,她父親都不知道

34 第二天,大女兒對小女兒:“昨夜我與父親同睡了,今夜我們再叫父親喝酒,你可以進去與他同睡,這樣我們可以藉著父親保全後裔。”

35 當夜,她們又叫父親喝酒,小女兒就起來,與父親同睡;她甚麼時候躺下,甚麼時候起來,她父親都不知道

36 這樣,羅得的兩個女兒從她們的父親懷了孕。

37 大女兒生了一個兒子,給他起名摩押,就是現在摩押人的始祖。

38 小女兒也生了一個兒子,給他起名便.亞米,就是現在亞捫人的始祖。

  

Exploring the Meaning of 創世記 19      

Napsal(a) Emanuel Swedenborg

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

AC 2312. In this chapter, in the internal sense, by "Lot‘s is described the state of the Spiritual Church which is in the good of charity but in external worship: how in course of time it declines.

AC 2313. The First State of that church: that they are in the good of charity and acknowledge the Lord, and that from Him they are confirmed in good (verses 1 to 3); and are saved (verse 12). The Second State: that with them evils begin to act against goods, but they are powerfully withheld from evils and kept in goods by the Lord (verses 14 to 16). Their weakness is described (verse 17); that they are saved (verse 19). The Third State: that they no longer think and act from the affection of good, but from the affection of truth (verses 18 to 20); and that they are saved (verse 23). The Fourth State: that the affection of truth perishes, which is Lot’s wife becoming a pillar of salt (verse 26). The Fifth State: that an impure good, or a good of falsity, succeeds, which is Lot in the cave of the mountain (verse 30). The Sixth State: that even this good is still more adulterated and falsified (verses 31 to 33); and the truth likewise (verses 34, 35). That therefrom there is conceived and born a certain semblance of a church whose good, so called, is "Moab," and whose truth, also so called, is the "son of Ammon" (verses 36 to 38).

AC 2314. Further: in the internal sense, by the "inhabitants of Sodom" is described the state of those within the same church who are against the good of charity, and how in course of time evil and falsity increase with them until they have nothing but evil and falsity.

AC 2315. Their First State: that they are against the good of charity and against the Lord (verses 4, 5). Their Second State: that although informed concerning the good of charity and concerning the delights of its affections which they should enjoy, they are obstinate and reject good (verses 6 to 8). That they also endeavor to destroy the very good of charity itself, but that the Lord protects it (verses 9, 10). The Third State: that at last they become such that they cannot even see truth and good, still less that truth leads to good (verse 11). That they are possessed by evil and falsity, so that they cannot but perish (verse 13). The Fourth State: their destruction (verse 24); and that all goods and truths are separated from them (verse 25).

AC 2316. That the good are separated from the evil, and that the good are saved through the Lord‘s Human made Divine (verses 27-29).
