1 当暗拉非作示拿,亚略作以拉撒,基大老玛作以拦,提达作戈印的时候,

2 他们都攻打所多玛比拉、蛾摩拉比沙、押玛示纳、洗扁善以别,和比拉;比拉就是琐珥。

3 这五王都在西订会合;西订就是

4 他们已经事奉基大老玛十年,到十三年就背叛了。

5 十四年,基大老玛和同盟的在亚特律加宁,杀败了利乏音人,在哈麦杀败了苏西人,在沙微基列亭杀败了以米人,

6 在何利人的西珥杀败了何利人,一直杀到靠近旷野的伊勒巴兰。

7 他们回到安密巴,就是加低斯,杀败了亚玛力全地的人,以及在哈洗逊他玛的亚摩利人。

8 於是所多玛、蛾摩拉、押玛、洗扁,和比拉(比拉就是琐珥)都出来,在西订摆阵,与他们交战,

9 就是与以拦基大老玛、戈印提达、示拿暗拉非、以拉撒亚略交战;乃是交战。

10 西订有许多石漆坑。所多玛和蛾摩拉逃跑,有掉在坑里的,其馀的人都往逃跑

11 四王就把所多玛和蛾摩拉所有的财物,并一切的粮食都掳掠去了;

12 又把亚伯兰的侄儿罗得和罗得的财物掳掠去了。当时罗得正所多玛

13 有一个逃出的人告诉希伯来人亚伯兰亚伯兰正住在亚摩利人幔利的橡树那里。幔利和以实各并亚乃都是弟兄,曾与亚伯兰联盟。

14 亚伯兰见他侄儿(原文作弟兄)被掳去,就率领他家里生养的精练壮丁一十人,直追到但,

15 便在夜间,自己同仆人分队杀败敌人,又追到大马色左边的何把,

16 将被掳掠的一切财物夺回来,连他侄儿罗得和他的财物,以及妇女、人民也都夺回来

17 亚伯兰杀败基大老玛和与他同盟的回来的时候,所多玛出来,在沙微迎接他;沙微就是

18 又有撒冷麦基洗德带着饼和酒出来迎接;他是至神的祭司

19 他为亚伯兰祝福:愿地的主、至的神赐福与亚伯兰

20 的神把敌人交在你里,是应当称颂的!亚伯兰就把所得的拿出十分之一来,麦基洗德。

21 所多玛亚伯兰:你把人口我,财物你自己拿去罢!

22 亚伯兰所多玛:我已经向地的─至的神耶和华起誓:

23 凡是你的东西,就是一根线、一根鞋带,我都不拿,免得你:我使亚伯兰富足!

24 只有仆人所的,并与我同行的亚乃、以实各、幔利所应得的分,可以任凭他们拿去。

  

Exploring the Meaning of 创世记 14      

Napsal(a) Emanuel Swedenborg

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

AC 1651. This chapter treats of the Lord’s temptation combats, which are represented and signified by the wars here described.

AC 1652. The goods and truths in the external man, but which only appeared as goods and truths, were the things from which the Lord fought in His childhood against evils and falsities. The apparent goods and truths are signified by the kings named in (verse 1); but the evils and falsities against which He fought are signified by the kings named in (verse 2); and these were unclean (verse 3).

AC 1653. These evils and falsities against which He fought did not show themselves earlier than in childhood; and then they burst forth, which is signified by their previously serving Chedorlaomer (verse 4).

AC 1654. The Lord then warred against and conquered the persuasions of falsity of all kinds, which are the Rephaim, the Zuzim, the Emim, and the Horites (verses 5, 6); next, the falsities and evils themselves, which are the Amalekite and the Amorite (verse 7) afterwards the other falsities and evils, which are the kings named in (verses 8 to 11).

AC 1655. Apparent truths and goods, which are not in themselves truths and goods, took possession of the external man (verse 12); and the rational man which is "Abram the Hebrew," perceiving this, laid claim to it and liberated it (verses 13 to 16).

AC 1656. After these combats, evil and falsity submitted themselves (verse 17).

AC 1657. The Lord‘s internal man in the interior man, or the Divine in the rational, is Melchizedek, from whom came the benediction after the combats (verses 18 to 20). The tithes are the remains, or the states of good and truth from the combats (verse 20).

AC 1658. The evil and infernal spirits, being overcome, begged for life, and did not care for other things; but nothing was taken from them by the Lord, because He had no strength from their evils and falsities; but they were given into the power (potestas) of good spirits and angels (verses 21-24).
