1 以色列家啊,要我为你们所作的哀歌

2 以色列民(原文是处女)跌倒,不得再起;躺在地上,无人搀扶。

3 耶和华如此以色列家的城发出一兵的,只剩一;发出一的,只剩个。

4 耶和华以色列家如此:你们要寻求我,就必存活。

5 不要往伯特利寻求,不要进入吉甲,不要过到别是巴;因为吉甲必被掳掠,伯特利也必归於无有。

6 寻求耶和华,就必存活,免得他在约瑟家像发出,在伯特利焚烧,无人扑灭。

7 你们这使公平变为茵?、将公丢弃於地的,

8 寻求那造昴星和参星,使死荫变为晨光,使白日变为黑夜,命来浇在地上的─耶和华是他的名;

9 他使力强的忽遭灭亡,以致保障遭遇毁坏。

10 你们怨恨那在城门口责备人的,憎恶那正直话的。

11 你们践踏贫民,向他们勒索麦子;你们用凿过的石头建造房屋,却不得在其内;栽种美好的葡萄园,却不得所出的酒。

12 知道你们的过何等多,你们的恶何等大。你们苦待人,收受贿赂,在城门口屈枉穷乏人。

13 所以通达人见这样的时势必静默不言,因为时势真恶。

14 你们要求善,不要求恶,就必存活。这样,耶和华─万军之必照你们所的与你们同在。

15 要恶恶善,在城门口秉公行义;或者耶和华─万军之向约瑟的馀民施恩。

16 耶和华─万军之如此:在一切宽阔处必有哀号的声音;在各街市上必有人:哀哉!哀哉!又必农夫来哭号,善唱哀歌的来举哀。

17 在各葡萄园必有哀号的声音,因为我必从你中间经过。这是耶和华的。

18 想望耶和华日子来到的有祸了!你们为何想望耶和华的日子呢?那日黑暗没有明,

19 景况好像躲避狮子遇见,或是进房屋,就被咬。

20 耶和华的日子不是黑暗没有明麽?不是幽毫无辉麽?

21 厌恶你们的节期,也不喜悦你们的严肃会。

22 你们虽然向我献燔祭和素祭,我却不悦纳,也不顾你们用肥畜献的平安祭;

23 要使你们歌唱的声音远离我,因为我不你们弹琴的响声。

24 惟愿公平如大滚滚,使公如江滔滔。

25 以色列家啊,你们在旷野四十年,岂是将祭物和供物献给我呢?

26 你们抬着为自己所造之摩洛的帐幕和偶像的龛,并你们的

27 所以我要把你们掳到大马色以外。这是耶和华、名为万军之的。

In this fifth chapter of the Book of Amos, the first three verses (Amos 5:1-3) state the Lord's sorrow that the church - the truth from the Divine flowing into the world - has successively been devastated. (That was seen in Amos 4). When, in verse 3, it says, “The city that goes out by a thousand shall have a hundred left,” it means that very little truth is left to nourish the people. This bad state is their own doing.

In Amos 5:4-9, amid this dying out, the Lord entreats, almost anxiously, “Seek Me and live,” and then names traps, or spiritual states, that will turn people away from Him: Bethel, Gilgal, and Beersheba.

- The first, Bethel, here stands for falsifying knowledges.
- The second, Gilgal, signifies sensuous or external pleasures.
- The third, Beersheba, symbolized the last negative attitudes towards everything that constitutes faith and its doctrine. (See Arcana Coelestia 3923).

The next warning is to those “who turn justice into wormwood,” in Amos 5:7, i.e. they turn good into evil. (Arcana Coelestia 1488)

The Lord wants the people to return to Him, and explains clearly that He is the source of power, the one who, “made the Pleiades and Orion,” and the one who “rains ruin upon the strong”.

In Amos 5:10-13, in their love of their own intelligence, people continue to reject the Lord, to “tread down the poor,” rejecting even the little bits of truth coming to them. The people are warned, “Though you have built houses of hewn stone, yet you shall not dwell in them."

Stone meaning truths in our natural minds. (Apocalypse Explained 745). The dictionary meaning of “hewn” means a workman making something, so it can be seen as coming from ourselves, or our own intelligence. Anything like that is “devoid of life from the Divine” (Arcana Coelestia 9852).

In Amos 5:14-15, the path is shown for the way the Lord can be with us: “Seek good and not evil, that you may live.” It can’t be any plainer. In that way the Lord can reach out with His mercy, and “be gracious to the remnant of Joseph”. That remnant is a small amount of truth, and Joseph is the spiritual part of us. (Arcana Coelestia 3921).

In Amos 5:16-20, people are warned of how bad it will be for them when the day of the Lord comes. “Is not the day of the Lord darkness?”, for those who are in evil, “with no brightness in it?” A person’s suffering will be painful, “as though he went into the house, leaned his hand on the wall, and a serpent bit him,” and terrorizing, “As though a man fled from a lion and a bear met him.”

In Amos 5:21-22, God warns that people's fear-spurred worship won’t be accepted. He says, “I hate, I despise your feast days”. The strong language of the Lord is the mirror opposite of the depth of the evil the people are in.

In verses 23-25, "Take away your noisy songs and melodies," the Lord says, i.e. take away what sounds beautiful to you but is hurtful to the Divine because it lacks internal goodness and truth. In its place, in one of the Bible's memorable images, Jehovah says, "Let justice run down like water, and righteousness like a mightly stream”.

Then, at the end, in verses 26-27, the warning is clear: if the people don’t return to the Lord, everything good will be taken from them, as shown in verse 27:

“Therefore I will send you into captivity beyond Damascus”.

Damascus was the furthest boundary of Canaan, or beyond where spiritual things reside. The “boundary of Damascus” is also referred to in Ezekiel 47:16-18. See also Apocalypse Explained 1088.

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。

黑暗
“黑暗”是没有光的状态。 “光”是来自主的真理,因此“黑暗”代表了缺乏真理的状态。 这是来自Arcana Coelestia的令人信服的文章: “尚未再生的人被称为'虚无而空的地球',也被称为'地面',其中根本没有播种任何善良或真理-'void'在没有善良的情况下,'empty' “那里没有真理。因此,存在着“深沉的黑暗”,愚蠢和缺乏对与对主的信仰以及与灵性和天体生活有关的任何事物的知识。 (天国的秘密17)...

1879年11月4日托马斯-爱迪生申请了一项长烧灯泡的专利。 1879年11月5日灯泡作为一种思想的象征被普遍接受。 好吧,这句话是我们编的,但漫画家至少从20世纪20年代就开始用灯泡作为符号了,通俗的语言中就有光与思想的联系:当人们理解了某件事情时,就会 "看到了光";当我们试图通过给一个疑难的问题带来新的思考,来 "点亮 "它;当人们得到新的信息或对某件事情有了更完整的理解时,就会 "开悟"。 因此,《圣经》中的 "光 "在最高的意义上代表着神圣的真理:知识、思想、观念、理解,这些都是从主而来的。在较小的程度上--灯的光、月亮的光等等--它代表了更低级的真理、思想和理解,这些真理、思想和理解来自于更多的世俗的来源。 这一点的基础在于,太阳代表着主,它的热代表着主的爱,它的光代表着主的智慧。这种智慧以真理的形式进入我们的生活,进入我们的生活,这些东西我们可以知道和思考,引导我们,帮助我们成为好人。

熊代表了《圣经》中字面上的外在故事和观念的力量,与它们的深层含义分开。由于它们是野生的肉食动物,这通常被用在消极的方面,显示出人们如何阅读圣经,误解圣经,扭曲圣经中的思想,为自己的邪恶欲望开脱。但它也可以用在积极的方面,显示出人们如何能以开放的心态阅读圣经,从圣经中汲取力量,即使不了解其真正的深度。
