1 耶和华亚伯兰:你要离开本地、本族、父家,往我所要指示你的地去。

2 我必叫你成为国。我必赐福给你,叫你的名为;你也要叫别人得福。

3 为你祝福的,我必赐福与他;那咒诅你的,我必咒诅他。地上的万族都要因你得福。

4 亚伯兰就照着耶和华的吩咐去了;罗得也和他同去。亚伯兰哈兰的时候年七十五岁。

5 亚伯兰将他妻子撒莱和侄儿罗得,连他们在哈兰所积蓄的财物、所得的人口,都迦南地去。他们就到了迦南地。

6 亚伯兰经过那地,到了示剑地方、摩利橡树那里。那时迦南人住在那地。

7 耶和华亚伯兰显现,:我要把这地赐你的後裔。亚伯兰就在那里为向他显现的耶和华筑了一座

8 从那里他又迁到伯特利东边的,支搭帐棚;西边是伯特利,东边是艾。他在那里又为耶和华筑了一座,求告耶和华的名。

9 後来亚伯兰又渐渐迁往地去。

10 那地遭遇饥荒。因饥荒甚大,亚伯兰埃及去,要在那里暂居。

11 埃及,就对他妻子撒莱:我知道你是容貌俊美的妇人

12 埃及人见你必:这是他的妻子,他们就要我,却叫你存活。

13 求你,你是我的妹子,使我因你得平安,我的命也因你存活。

14 及至亚伯兰到了埃及埃及人见那妇人极其美貌。

15 法老的臣宰见了他,就在法老面前夸奖他。那妇人就被带进法老的宫去。

16 法老因这妇人就厚待亚伯兰亚伯兰得了许多牛、骆驼、公、母、仆婢。

17 耶和华亚伯兰妻子撒莱的缘故,降灾与法老和他的全家。

18 法老就召了亚伯兰来,:你这向我作的是甚麽事呢?为甚麽没有告诉我他是你的妻子

19 为甚麽他是你的妹子,以致我把他取来要作我的妻子?现在你的妻子在这里,可以带他走罢。

20 於是法老吩咐人将亚伯兰和他妻子,并他所有的都送走了。

Exploring the Meaning of Genesis 12      

By Rev. George McCurdy

The Inner Meaning of Genesis 12

In Genesis 11, we met Abram for the first time, as his genealogy was traced down through the generations from Noah. Abram represents the beginning of a new spiritual state of humankind - a new church that would record preserve important external truths. Those external truths contained internal ones - true ideas about God the way people should live.

These external truths were encoded in stories, first preserved in oral traditions then in written scriptures in the time of Moses. In the current , Abram, goes, as commanded by God, the land of Canaan. In doing this, he effectively starts the Hebrew church (from Eber, Abraham's forebear).

All the geographic places in the land of Canaan its environs had been given spiritual significations by the people of the Most Ancient Church. In the new Word that would be written there, these places would be mentioned by name would signify spiritual ideas.

When Abraham is driven by famine in the land seek refuge in Egypt, it symbolizes a state of initial instruction for this new church. That early instruction is of an external type. Egypt, in the Word, represents scientific knowledge - the natural sciences - which teach the natural level in people.

There are two levels of "story" nested in the symbolism of the literal text. One is the spiritual story of humankind. Another, higher one, is the story of the inner spiritual process that would take place in the life of Jesus Christ. Both stories are traced out in Swedenborg's exegesis of the Word.

Here's an excerpt from his capstone work, True Christian Religion:

The Word has two senses hidden in its literal sense; these are called the spiritual the celestial senses. In the spiritual sense the contents of the Word refer chiefly the church in the celestial sense chiefly the Lord. Again in the spiritual sense its contents refer Divine truth in the celestial sense Divine good. (True Christian Religion 248)

A detailed description of the inner meaning of this chapter begins in Arcana Coelestia 1401.
