1 耶和华如此摩押次地犯罪,我必不免去他的刑罚;因为他将以东的骸焚烧成灰。

2 我却要降摩押,烧灭加略的宫殿摩押必在哄嚷呐喊吹角之中亡。

3 我必剪除摩押中的审判者,将其中的一切首领和他一同戮。这是耶和华的。

4 耶和华如此犹大次地犯罪,我必不免去他们的刑罚;因为他们厌弃耶和华的训诲,不遵守他的律例。他们列祖所随从虚假的偶像使他们走迷了。

5 我却要降犹大,烧灭耶路撒冷宫殿

6 耶和华如此以色列人次地犯罪,我必不免去他们的刑罚;因他们为人,为一双鞋了穷人。

7 他们见穷上所蒙的灰也都垂涎,阻碍谦卑道路。父子同一个女子行淫,亵渎我的名。

8 他们在各旁铺人所当的衣服,卧在其上,又在他们的庙中受罚之人的酒。

9 我从以色列人面前除灭亚摩利人。他虽大如香柏树,坚固如橡树,我却上灭他的果子,绝他的本。

10 我也将你们从埃及地领上来,在旷野引导你们四十年,使你们得亚摩利人之地为业。

11 我从你们子弟中兴起先知,又从你们少年人中兴起拿细耳人。以色列人哪,不是这样麽?这是耶和华的。

12 你们却给拿细耳人酒喝,嘱咐先知:不要预言

13 看哪,在你们所住之地,我必压你们,如同装满禾捆的车压物一样。

14 快跑的不能逃脱;有力的不能用力;刚勇的也不能自救。

15 的不能站立;腿快的不能逃脱;的也不能自救。

16 到那日,勇士中最有胆量的,必赤身逃跑。这是耶和华的。



Exploring the Meaning of 阿摩司书 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。

'Sanctuary' signifies the truth of heaven and the church. 'Sanctuary,' as in Ezekiel 24:21, signifies the Word.


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。
