创世记 3

1 耶和华所造的,惟有比田野一切的活物更狡猾。女人岂是真不许你们园中所有上的果子麽?

2 女人:园中上的果子,我们可以

3 惟有园当中那棵上的果子,:你们不可,也不可摸,免得你们

4 女人:你们不一定

5 因为知道,你们的日子眼睛就明亮了,你们便如知道善恶。

6 於是女人见那棵的果子作食物,也悦人的眼目,且是可喜爱的,能使人有智慧,就摘下果子来吃了,又丈夫,他丈夫吃了

7 他们人的眼睛就明亮了,才知道自己是赤身露体,便拿无花果树子为自己编作裙子。

8 起了凉耶和华在园中行走。那人和他妻子的声音,就藏在园里的树木中,躲避耶和华的面。

9 耶和华呼唤那人,对他:你在那里?

10 :我在园中见你的声音,我就害怕;因为我赤身露体,我便藏了。

11 耶和华:谁告诉你赤身露体呢?莫非你吃了我吩咐你不可的那上的果子吗?

12 那人:你所赐我与我同居的女人,他把那上的果子我,我就吃了

13 耶和华女人:你作的是甚麽事呢?女人:那引诱我,我就吃了

14 耶和华:你既作了这事,就必受咒诅,比一切的牲畜野兽更甚。你必用肚子行走,终身土。

15 我又要叫你女人彼此为仇;你的後裔女人的後裔也彼此为仇。女人的後裔要伤你的;你要伤他的脚跟

16 又对女人:我必多多加增你怀胎的苦楚;你生产儿女必多受苦楚。你必恋慕你丈夫;你丈夫必管辖你。

17 又对亚当:你既妻子的话,吃了我所吩咐你不可的那上的果子,地必为你的缘故受咒诅;你必终身劳苦才能从地里得的。

18 地必给你长出荆棘和蒺藜来;你也要田间的菜蔬。

19 你必汗流满面才得糊口,直到你归了土,因为你是从土而出的。你本是尘土,仍要归於尘土。

20 亚当给他妻子起名夏娃,因为他是众生之母。

21 耶和华为亚当和他妻子子作衣服给他们穿。

22 耶和华:那人已经与我们相似,能知道善恶;现在恐怕他伸又摘生命的果子,就永远活着。

23 耶和华便打发他出伊甸园去,耕种他所自出之土。

24 於是把他赶出去了;又在伊甸园的东边安设基路伯和四面动发火焰的,要把守生命道路

  

Exploring the Meaning of 创世记 3      

Napsal(a) Emanuel Swedenborg

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

AC 190. The third state of the Most Ancient Church is treated of, which so desired its Own as to love it.

AC 191. Because from the love of self, that is, their own love, they began to believe nothing that they did not apprehend by the senses, the sensuous part is represented by the "serpent;" the love of self, or their own love, by the "woman;" and the rational by the "man."

AC 192. Hence the "serpent," or sensuous part, persuaded the woman to inquire into matters pertaining to faith in the Lord in order to see whether they are really so, which is signified by "eating of the tree of knowledge;" and that the rational of man consented, is signified by "the man that he did eat" (verses 1-6).

AC 193. But they perceived that they were in evil; from which remnant of perception, signified by their "eyes being opened," and by their "hearing the voice of Jehovah" (verses 7, 8), and from the fig-leaves of which they made themselves girdles (verse 7), and from their shame or hiding in the midst of the tree of the garden (verses 8, 9), as well as from their acknowledgment and confession (verses 10-13), it is evident that natural goodness still remained in them.

AC 234. The subsequent state of the church down to the flood is here described; and as at that time the church utterly destroyed itself, it is foretold that the Lord would come into the world and save the human race.

AC 235. Being unwilling to believe anything that could not be apprehended by the senses, the sensuous part which is the "serpent," cursed itself, and became infernal (verse 14).

AC 236. Therefore to prevent all mankind from rushing into hell, the Lord promised that He would come into the world (verse 15).

AC 237. The church is further described by the "woman," which so loved self or the Own as to be no longer capable of apprehending truth, although a rational was given them that should "rule" (verse 16).

AC 238. The quality of the rational is then described, in that it consented, and thus cursed itself, and became infernal, so that reason no longer remained, but ratiocination (verse 17).

AC 239. The curse and vastation are described, and also their ferine nature (verse 18).

AC 240. Next, their aversion to everything of faith and love; and that thus from being man they became not men (verse 19).

AC 280. The Most Ancient Church, and those who fell away, are here summarily treated of; thus also its posterity down to the flood, when it expired.

AC 281. Of the Most Ancient Church which was celestial, and from the life of faith in the Lord, called "Eve," and the "mother of all living" (verse 20).

AC 282. Of its first posterity, in which there was celestial spiritual good; and of its second and third, in which there was natural good, signified by the "coat of skin which Jehovah God made for the man and his wife" (verse 21).

AC 283. Of the fourth posterity, in which natural good began to be dissipated, and which, had they been created anew or instructed in the celestial things of faith, would have perished, which is meant by, "Lest he put forth his hand, and take also of the tree of lives, and eat, and live to eternity" (verse 22).

AC 284. Of the fifth posterity, which was deprived of all good and truth, and was reduced to the state in which they had been previous to regeneration, which is meant by his being "sent forth out of the garden of Eden to till the ground from which he was taken" (verse 23).

AC 285. Of the sixth and seventh posterities, in that they were deprived of all memory-knowledge (scientia) of what is good and true, and were left to their own filthy loves and persuasions; this being provided lest they should profane the holy things of faith,-which is signified by his being "driven out, and cherubim being made to dwell at the garden, with the flame of a sword, to keep the way of the tree of lives" (verse 24).
