1 亞伯拉罕買地埋葬撒拉撒拉享壽一十七歲,這是撒拉一生的歲數。

2 撒拉迦南地的基列.亞巴,就是希伯崙;亞伯拉罕為撒拉哀慟哭號。

3 亞伯拉罕者面前起來,對赫人

4 “我是在你們中間寄居的外族人,求你們在你們中間我一塊墳地作產業,使我可以埋葬我死了的人,使她不露在我面前。”

5 赫人回答亞伯拉罕

6 “我,你在我們中間是一位尊貴的王子,你可以在我們最好的墳地裡埋葬你死了我們必沒有阻止你在他的墳地埋葬你死了。”

7 於是,亞伯拉罕起來,向當地的赫人下拜,

8 對他們:“你們若有意使我埋葬我死了的人,使她不露在我的眼前,就請我的話,為我請求瑣轄的兒子以弗崙

9 叫他把他所擁有的,田頭上那麥比拉洞賣我。他可以按著十足的價我,使我在你們中間有產業作墳地。”

10 那時,以弗崙在赫人中間。於是,赫人以弗崙回答亞伯拉罕,所有到城門口的赫人都見他說:

11 “我,不要這樣,請,這塊田我送你,連其中的洞我也送你。我在我的族人眼前送你,讓你可以埋葬你死了的人。”

12 亞伯拉罕就在當地的人面前下拜,

13 然後在當地的人面前對以弗崙:“請,如果你願意,我必定把地的價你,請你收下吧,讓我可以在那裡埋葬我死了的人。”

14 以弗崙回答亞伯拉罕,對他

15 “我,請我說,一塊值塊(千五克)子的田地,在你我之間,算得甚麼呢?你埋葬你死了的人吧。”

16 亞伯拉罕同意以弗崙說的價,就照著他在赫人面前所說的,拿商人通用的子,稱了塊(千五克)子給以弗崙

17 於是,以弗崙在麥比拉,在幔利前面的那塊地,包括那塊田和其中的洞,田中和四周所有的樹木

18 都在赫人眼前,就是在所有到城門口的赫人眼前,歸給亞伯拉罕作產業。

19 這事以亞伯拉罕把自己的妻子撒拉埋在迦南地,幔利前面麥比拉田間的洞裡。幔利就是希伯崙。

20 這樣,那塊田和田中的洞,就從赫人歸給了亞伯拉罕為產業作墳地。


Exploring the Meaning of 創世記 23      

Napsal(a) Emanuel Swedenborg

Arcana Coelestia 2901. In the internal sense a New Spiritual Church is here treated of, that was raised up by the Lord after the former church had altogether expired; and also the reception of faith with those who were of the church. "Sarah" here, is the truth Divine which expired; "burial," is raising up again; "Ephron and the sons of Heth," are those with whom the good and truth of the church were received "Machpelah which is before Mamre," is regeneration; Hebron in the land of Canaan," is a new church.

Arcana Coelestia 2902. Truth Divine, that it expired, is treated of (verses 1-3); and that the Lord set up again a new church (verse 4); and was kindly received (verses 5, 6); from which there was joy (verses 7, 12); that their first state was obscure, and they believed the good of charity and the truth of faith to be from themselves (verses 8-11, 14, 15); but they were instructed that good and truth were not from themselves, but from the Lord (verse 13); and thus they were redeemed (verse 16); and regenerated (verses 17, 18); and thus there was a new church (verse 19); from the Gentiles (verse 20).
