1 这事以耶和华异象中有亚伯兰说:亚伯兰,你不要惧怕!我是你的盾牌,必大大的赏赐你。

2 亚伯兰耶和华阿,我既无子,你还赐我甚麽呢?并且要承受我家业的是大马色人以利以谢。

3 亚伯兰:你没有儿子;那生在我家中的人就是我的後嗣。

4 耶和华又有对他:这人必不成为你的後嗣;你本身所生的才成为你的後嗣。

5 於是领他走到外边,:你向观看,算众,能得过来麽?又对他:你的後裔将要如此。

6 亚伯兰信耶和华耶和华就以此为他的

7 耶和华又对他:我是耶和华,曾领你出了迦勒底的吾珥,为要将这地赐你为业。

8 亚伯兰耶和华阿,我怎能知道必得这地为业呢?

9 :你为我取一只年的母,一只年的母山羊,一只年的公绵,一只斑鸠,一只雏鸽。

10 亚伯兰就取了这些来,每样劈开,分成两半,一半对着一半地摆列,只有没有劈开。

11 有鸷鸟来,落在那死畜的肉上,亚伯兰就把他吓飞了。

12 日头正落的时候,亚伯兰沉沉地睡了;忽然有惊人的黑暗落在他身上。

13 耶和华对亚伯兰:你要的确知道,你的後裔必寄居别人的地,又服事那地的人;那地的人要苦待他们年。

14 并且他们所要服事的那国,我要惩罚,来他们必带着许多财物从那里出来。

15 但你要享大寿数,平平安安地归到你列祖那里,被人埋葬。

16 到了第四,他们必回到此地,因为亚摩利人的罪孽还没有满盈。

17 日落天黑,不料有冒烟的炉并烧着的把从那些肉块中经过。

18 当那日,耶和华亚伯兰立约,:我已赐你的後裔,从埃及直到伯拉之地,

19 就是基尼人、基尼洗人、甲摩尼人、

20 赫人、比利洗人、利乏音人、

21 亚摩利人、迦南人、革迦撒人、耶布斯人之地。

  

Exploring the Meaning of 创世记 15      

Napsal(a) Emanuel Swedenborg

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

AC 1778. Here in the internal sense are continued the things concerning the Lord after He had endured in childhood the most severe combats of temptations, which were directed against the love which He cherished toward the whole human race, and in particular toward the church; and therefore being anxious concerning their future state a promise was made Him but it was shown at the same time what the state of the church would become toward its end when it would begin to expire; but that still a new church should revive, which would take the place of the former, and the heavenly kingdom would be immensely increased.

AC 1779. The Lord‘s consolation after the combats of temptations described (verse 1).

AC 1780. The Lord’s complaint respecting the church, that it was in externals only (verses 2, 3). A promise concerning an internal church (verse 4). Concerning its multiplication (verse 5). That the Lord is righteousness (verse 6). And unto Him alone belongs the kingdom in the heavens and on earth (verse 7).

AC 1781. And as He desired to be assured that the human race would be saved (verse 8), it was shown Him how the case is with the church, in general, specifically, and in particular (verses 9 to 17).

AC 1782. The "heifer," "she-goat," and "ram," are the representatives of the celestial things of the church; the "turtledove" and the "young pigeon" are the representatives of its spiritual things (verse 9). The church was on one side, and the Lord on the other (verse 10). The Lord would dissipate evils and falsities (verse 11). But the falsities would still infest it (verses 12, 13). From these there should be deliverance (verse 14). Thus the Lord received consolation (verse 15). But that evils would take possession (verse 16). And at last nothing hut falsities and cupidities would reign (verse 17). Then would come the Lord‘s kingdom, and a new church, the extension of which is described (verse 18). The falsities and evils to be expelled from it are the nations named (verses 19 to 21).
