创世记 37

1 雅各迦南地,就是他父亲寄居的地。

2 雅各的记略如下。约瑟十七岁与他哥哥们一同牧。他是个童子,与他父亲的妾辟拉、悉帕的儿子们常在一处。约瑟将他哥哥们的恶行报给他们的父亲

3 以色列原来约瑟过於他的众子,因为约瑟是他年老生的;他给约瑟做了一件彩衣。

4 约瑟的哥哥们见父亲约瑟过於他们,就恨约瑟,不与他和睦的话。

5 约瑟做了一梦,告诉他哥哥们,他们就越发恨他。

6 约瑟对他们:请我所做的梦:

7 我们在田里捆禾稼,我的捆起来站着,你们的捆来围着我的捆下拜。

8 他的哥哥们回答:难道你真要作我们的王麽?难道你真要管辖我们麽?他们就因为他的梦和他的越发恨他。

9 後来他又做了梦,也告诉他的哥哥:看哪,我又做了梦,梦见太阳月亮,与十向我下拜。

10 约瑟将这梦告诉他父亲和他哥哥们,他父亲就责备他:你做的这是甚麽梦!难道我和你母亲、你弟兄果然要俯伏在地,向你下拜麽?

11 哥哥们都嫉妒他,他父亲却把这存在心里。

12 约瑟的哥哥们往示剑去放他们父亲

13 以色列对约瑟:你哥哥们不是在示剑放羊麽?你来,我要打发你往他们那里去。约瑟:我在这里。

14 以色列:你去哥哥们平安不平安,平安不平安,就回来报信给我;於是打发他出希伯仑,他就往示剑去了。

15 遇见他在田野走迷了路,就问他:你甚麽?

16 :我找我的哥哥们,求你告诉我,他们在何处放羊。

17 :他们已经走了,我见他们要往多坍去。约瑟就去追赶他哥哥们,遇见他们在多坍。

18 他们远远地见他,趁他还没有走到跟前,大家就同谋要害他,

19 彼此:你看!那做梦的来了

20 来罢!我们将他了,丢在里,就有恶兽把他吃了我们他的梦将来怎麽样。

21 流便见了,要救他脱离他们的我们不可害他的性命;

22 :不可流他的血,可以把他丢在这野地的里,不可下害他。流便的意思是要救他脱离他们的,把他归还他的父亲

23 约瑟到了他哥哥们那里,他们就剥了他的外衣,就是他穿的那件彩衣,

24 把他丢在里;那是空的,里头没有

25 他们饭,举目观,见有一夥米甸的以实玛利人从基列,用骆驼驮着香料、乳香、没药,要埃及去。

26 犹大对众弟兄我们我们兄弟,藏了他的血有甚麽益处呢?

27 我们不如将他以实玛利人,不可下害他;因为他是我们兄弟我们的骨。众弟兄就从了他。

28 有些米甸的商人从那里经过,哥哥们就把约瑟从里拉上,讲定二十舍客勒子,把约瑟以实玛利人。他们就把约瑟埃及去了。

29 流便回到边,见约瑟不在里,就撕裂衣服

30 回到兄弟们那里,:童子没有了。我往那里去才好呢?

31 他们宰了一只公山羊,把约瑟的那件彩衣染了血,

32 打发人送到他们的父亲那里,:我们捡了这个;请认一认是你儿子的外衣不是?

33 他认得,就:这是我儿子的外衣。有恶兽把他吃了,约瑟被撕碎了!撕碎了!

34 雅各便撕裂衣服,腰间围上麻布,为他儿子悲哀了多日。

35 他的儿女都起来安慰他,他却不肯受安慰:我必悲哀着阴间,到我儿子那里。约瑟的父亲就为他哀哭。

36 米甸人带约瑟到埃及,把他法老的内臣─护卫长波提乏。

  

Exploring the Meaning of 创世记 37      

Napsal(a) Joe David

The stories in the Old Testament foreshadow future events -- not so much historical events, but changes in the spiritual states of humankind.

In the inner meaning, the story of Jacob, and his twelve sons, and Joseph and his dreams, deals with people's eventual rejection of the Divine truths that they would receive from the Lord in the Christian church, and their acceptance of falsities instead.

Specifically, this chapter is about the way that some theologians in the Christian church developed the idea of salvation by faith alone, when the Lord really wants us to conjoin faith and charity in our lives.

This seems like a stretch - that a story from 3500+ years ago could be foreshadowing modern theological arguments. And yet, human beings, as partly-spiritual creatures, are always players in a big, long spiritual story - and the Old Testament stories are archetypes for things we wrestle with in our own lives. For the details of this story's meaning, look at Arcana Coelestia 4665, and the following passages.

Here is an excerpt from Swedenborg's "Arcana Coelestia" that helps start explain the inner meaning of this chapter:

"The subject treated of in this chapter in the internal sense is the Divine truths which are from the Lord‘s Divine Human, that in course of time they have been rejected in the church, and that at last falsities have been received in their stead. Specifically, those are described who are in faith separate from charity, in that they are against the Lord’s Divine Human." AC 4665.

雅各

在圣经时代,特别是旧约时代,许多人都是游牧民族,他们住在帐篷里,可以快速地打点、移动和重新搭建。当然,还有一些人住在房子里,一般是用石头和木头做的,相当永久。介于这两者之间的是更大、更精致的帐篷式结构,称为帐棚或住所;摩西为约柜所建的帐棚就是以这种模式为基础。 那么,"住 "在某个地方,意义重大--它比单纯的参观要多得多--但却不如住在那里永久。而事实上,在《圣经》中,住在某处,代表着进入那种属灵的状态,并与之交往,但不一定是永久的。 同时,"住处 "代表着激发居住在其中的人的各种爱,从最邪恶的--例如以赛亚书第9章中的 "那些住在死亡阴影里的人"--到会幕本身的崇高状态,会幕是作为主的住处而建造的,代表着天堂的所有细节。

迦南
Canaan signifies a worship in things external without internals, which arose out of the internal church corrupted, called Ham. Thus it is that Ham is...

父亲
父亲在话语中的意思是指最里面的东西,在那些遵从主的命令的事情上,是指好的东西。在最高的意义上,父亲是指主自己,是创造者。在自然儿女的生成中,是父亲提供灵魂或最内在的生命容器,以及一种内在的遗传,母亲则提供灵魂用来形成身体的所有物质,再加上一种外在的遗传。在这个过程中,灵魂通过父亲来自主,而不是来自父亲,因为所有的生命都来自主。 聪明的人称主为他的父亲,称教会为他的母亲,因为他内心的爱来自主,但通过教会所教导的真理得到了形式和实际。那些因此而生出的东西,就是一个人属灵的 "儿女"。 在新约中,当谈到耶稣和天父的时候,指的是外在的表现,里面有神圣的本身作为灵魂。因为耶稣是由一个天然的母亲所生,所以他有一个天然的身体和天然的犹太人的遗传。在他的一生中,当他受到地狱的诱惑时,他慢慢地把他从母亲那里得来的一切,换成了他自己里面的东西,即天父。这样做,他使自己与他内心的父合而为一,所以他可以真正地说:"我和我的父是一体的"。

哥哥
"兄弟 "在《圣经》中有两种用法,在现代语言中仍有体现。一种是指实际的血缘关系;另一种是以 "人的兄弟关系 "的方式,更广泛地指共同性。 第二种用法在圣经中是一致的,意思是指那些活在行善的爱中的人。这可以是不同层次的,从简单的顺服的喜乐,到服侍别人的慈善之爱,再到主自己的崇高之爱。但在这些爱中都是兄弟。 启示录解释》,第746页。 "这样的人之所以被称为弟兄,是因为他们都有一位父亲,即主;那些在爱主的好处上,在对邻舍的仁爱上,都是主的儿子。(S)既然是一位父亲的儿子,他们也是弟兄。而且,主父的大诫命,就是要他们彼此相爱,因此,是爱使他们成为弟兄......" 有血缘关系的兄弟,情况就比较复杂,其意义更多的是受兄弟的身份和故事背景的影响。一般来说,它们反映了行善的愿望和对如何行善的理解之间可能存在的统一。该隐和亚伯以及几对双胞胎都是如此。雅各布和以扫、犹大的儿子撒拉和法勒斯、约瑟的儿子以法莲和玛拿西;在每一个案例中,一个代表了行善的愿望,另一个代表了对真理的理解。 因为这种善与真的兄弟情谊,兄弟可以根据上下文的不同,代表任何一种。事实上,约瑟的兄弟们的意义在他的故事中不断变化,因为他们代表了犹太信仰的先驱的精神衰落和重生。...

回来
在《圣经》中,有很多描述人回头看、回头看或回去的例子。在大多数情况下,这是一种消极的,有时是毁灭性的(就像罗得的妻子,当她回望所多玛的毁灭时,变成了一根盐柱子)。一般情况下,这代表着我们的状态,当我们进入到一个新的精神境界,发现自己希望得到旧的安逸和轻松时,回去代表着回到更早的低级阶段。 当 "回 "与物联系在一起的时候,"回 "的意义更多的是字面意义。当有人拿东西回来或给东西时,其精神意义大多是以物与行为人为中心。

吃了
当我们吃东西的时候,我们的身体会分解食物,并从中获得能量和建造和修复身体的材料。 这个过程在《圣经》的象征层面上是大同小异的。食物代表着对美好的渴望,以及从这种对美好的渴望中产生的洞察力--来自于主的善意和理解。但要把它们用起来,我们必须把它们收进来,变成我们自己的--这就是属灵的饮食。

以实玛利人

骆驼
A camel (Matt. 22:24) signifies scientific knowledge. Camels are confirming scientifics, and cattle are the knowledges of good and truth (Jer. 49:32.)


如同一般常见的动词一样,"带来 "的意思在很大程度上取决于语境,但在一般情况下,它表示对新的精神状态或新的思想的介绍。

埃及
在圣经中,埃及的意思是知识和爱知识。从好的意义上说,这意味着通过《圣经》从主那里获得真理的知识,但从自然的意义上说,它只是意味着要储存和占有的世俗知识。而且即使是来自圣经的知识也不一定是好的:如果我们学习它们的目的是使它们有用,那么它们就充满了天使的思想。但如果只是为了认识事物或为了学问的名声而学习它们,那它们就是。 所以,埃及是一个你去学习东西的地方,但要想成为天国,你就必须摆脱无菌的 "知",前往迦南地,在那里,知识充满了内心对善的渴望。 有趣的是,当约瑟统治埃及时,埃及是他父亲和兄弟的天堂。这说明,当一个人的内在心灵在学问之地统治的时候,可以学到很多有用的东西。但最终出现了一个不认识约瑟的法老,以色列子民就被奴役了。法老代表着外在的心灵;当它掌管的时候,知道的兴奋和自满会使内在的心灵沦为一种奴役。心灵--就像以色列子民一样--最终会从外在的表象中制造出砖头,或人为的假象。

犹大
City of Judah,' as in Isaiah 40:9, signifies the doctrine of love towards the Lord and love towards our neighbor in its whole extent.

兄弟
"兄弟 "在《圣经》中有两种用法,在现代语言中仍有体现。一种是指实际的血缘关系;另一种是以 "人的兄弟关系 "的方式,更广泛地指共同性。 第二种用法在圣经中是一致的,意思是指那些活在行善的爱中的人。这可以是不同层次的,从简单的顺服的喜乐,到服侍别人的慈善之爱,再到主自己的崇高之爱。但在这些爱中都是兄弟。 启示录解释》,第746页。 "这样的人之所以被称为弟兄,是因为他们都有一位父亲,即主;那些在爱主的好处上,在对邻舍的仁爱上,都是主的儿子。(S)既然是一位父亲的儿子,他们也是弟兄。而且,主父的大诫命,就是要他们彼此相爱,因此,是爱使他们成为弟兄......" 有血缘关系的兄弟,情况就比较复杂,其意义更多的是受兄弟的身份和故事背景的影响。一般来说,它们反映了行善的愿望和对如何行善的理解之间可能存在的统一。该隐和亚伯以及几对双胞胎都是如此。雅各布和以扫、犹大的儿子撒拉和法勒斯、约瑟的儿子以法莲和玛拿西;在每一个案例中,一个代表了行善的愿望,另一个代表了对真理的理解。 因为这种善与真的兄弟情谊,兄弟可以根据上下文的不同,代表任何一种。事实上,约瑟的兄弟们的意义在他的故事中不断变化,因为他们代表了犹太信仰的先驱的精神衰落和重生。...


'To sell,' as in Genesis 41:56, means transferring to another as their own, because what is sold becomes the property of the one who buys...


肉体有几种含义,只是在最明显的形式上。它可以指所有的活物,就像主说到洪水 "毁灭一切肉体 "一样。创世记7:21),也可以指全人类(创世记6:3),也可以是指柔软和屈服的东西,如用肉心代替石心(以西结书11:19)但在精神上,它的意思是指住在一个人的意志中的爱,似乎属于这个人,成为那个人。这个人可能是一个还没有开始重生(或永远不会重生)的人,也可能是一个正在重生过程中的人,也可能是一个快要结束的人。在最高的意义上,肉体是指在主的旨意中的爱,是神圣的。这个意思在主在约翰福音中的话中很清楚(约翰福音6:53-56) 每个人都有这样一个爱的包裹,它可以很恶,可以很杂,也可以很好,就像同样,每个人都有肉体一样。我们在生活的时候,属灵的工作就是要把这个包裹,一次一次的感情从坏变好。如果我们努力做到这一点,主就会帮助我们 当我们开始的时候,我们的爱是自私的,在灵性上我们是死的,就像以西结看到的骨头一样,但是当我们坚持离弃恶行的时候,主就会使骨头被收拢,肉体降临在骨头上,柔软而有爱,我们就会用新的向外转的爱来代替旧的自私的爱而活过来。 所以,"肉体 "的意义可以从我们原来的意志,在我们的唆使下,在主的帮助下,一块一块地被拆解,最终变成新的意志,取代它。这就是为什么在以色列教会的一些祭祀中,肉体要被烧掉,而在另一些祭祀中,肉体可以被祭司吃掉。代表旧的原始意志的被烧掉,但可以吃的代表新的意志。
