1 有一個便雅憫,名叫基士,是便雅憫亞斐亞的玄孫,比歌拉的曾孫,洗羅的孫子,亞別的兒子,是個大能的勇士(或譯:大財主)。

2 他有一個兒子,名叫掃羅,又健壯、又俊美,在以色列人中沒有一個能比他的;身體比眾民過一頭。

3 掃羅的父親基士丟了幾頭驢,他就吩咐兒子掃羅:你帶個僕人去尋找驢。

4 掃羅就走過以法蓮地,又過沙利沙地,都沒有著;又過沙琳地,驢也不在那裡;又過便雅憫地,還沒有著。

5 到了蘇弗地,掃羅對跟隨他的僕人我們不如回去,恐怕我父親不為驢掛心,反為我們擔憂。

6 :這城裡有一位,是眾所尊重的,凡他所的全都應驗。我們不如往他那裡去,或者他能將我們當走的指示我們

7 掃羅對僕我們若去,有甚麼可以送那呢?我們囊中的食物都吃盡了,也沒有禮物可以送那我們還有甚麼沒有?

8 回答掃羅:我裡有子一舍客勒的四分之一,可以送那,請他指示我們當走的

9 (從前以色列中,若有去問,就我們問先見去罷!現在稱為先知的,從前稱為先見。)

10 掃羅對僕:你的是,我們可以去。於是他們往所住的城裡去了。

11 他們上坡要進城,就遇見幾個少年女子出來打,問他們:先見在這裡沒有?

12 女子回答:在這裡,他在你們前面。去罷!他今日正到城裡,因為今日百姓要在邱壇獻祭。

13 在他還沒有上邱壇祭物之先,你們一進城必遇見他;因他未到,百姓不能,必等他先祝祭,然請的客才。現在你們上去,這時候必遇見他。

14 二人就上去;將進城的時候,撒母耳正迎著他們,要上邱壇去。

15 掃羅未到的前日,耶和華已經指示撒母耳說:

16 明日這時候,我必使一個從便雅憫地到你這裡,你要他作我民以色列的君。他必我民脫離非利士人;因我民的哀聲上達於我,我就眷顧他們。

17 撒母耳掃羅的時候,耶和華對他哪,這就是我對你所的,他必治理我的民。

18 掃羅在城裡走到撒母耳跟前,:請告訴我,先見的寓所在哪裡?

19 撒母耳回答:我就是先見。你在我前面上邱壇去,因為你們今日必與我同席;明日早晨我送你去,將你心裡的事都告訴你。

20 至於你前日所丟的那幾頭驢,你裡不必掛念,已經著了。以色列眾人所仰慕的是誰呢?不是仰慕你和你父的全家麼?

21 掃羅:我不是以色列支派中至小的便雅憫人麼?我家不是便雅憫支派中至小的家麼?你為何對我這樣的呢?

22 撒母耳領掃羅他僕進了客堂,使他們在請的客中首位;客約有三十

23 撒母耳對廚役:我交你收存的那一分祭肉現在可以拿來。

24 廚役就把收存的腿拿來,擺在掃羅面前,撒母耳:這是所留下的,放在你面前。罷!因我請百姓的時候,特意為你存留這肉到此時。當日,掃羅就與撒母耳同席。

25 眾人從邱壇來進城,撒母耳和掃羅在房頂上說話。

26 次日清起來黎明的時候,掃羅在房頂上。撒母耳呼叫起來罷,我好送你回去。掃羅起來,和撒母耳一同出去。

27 二人到城角,撒母耳對掃羅:要吩咐僕人先走(僕人就先走了);你且站在這裡,等我將傳與你

Exploring the Meaning of 1_Samuel 9      

In this chapter we are introduced to Saul, the son of Kish, from the tribe of Benjamin. He was outstandingly handsome, and a whole head taller than everyone else.

One day he was out searching for his father’s lost donkeys. It became a long journey, with no success. Saul was becoming more and more desperate, when his servant told him that nearby was a man of God, who might be able to show them the way. That man was Samuel. Saul made sure that he had a suitable offering to bring to Samuel, who was at that time called a seer, another name for a prophet.

On that day, Samuel was on his way to preside over a sacrifice. The Lord had told him that he would encounter the man who would be anointed commander of the people and save them from the Philistines. When he saw Saul, he immediately recognized him as this man. He invited Saul to the sacrifice, and told him that the donkeys Saul was searching for were safe. Saul ate with Samuel, who gave him the best of the meat offering. The next day Samuel asked Saul to wait a moment before leaving, and then Samuel delivered the Lord’s message.

Throughout the story, high places are mentioned. Samuel invites Saul to accompany him to a high place, and later to a rooftop. Swedenborg writes that this is representative of a king. Saul became king of the Israelites (see Spiritual Experiences 2472).

Another interesting aspect of the story is its mention of Saul’s attractive appearance. We as humans are often drawn to things which seem attractive to us. In each of us there are two parts: one part is external or sensual, and the other is internal or spiritual. We cannot fully understand the Lord when we are only thinking from the external part of ourselves. When this part of ourselves dominates, the Lord can seem distant. We need the spiritual part of us to be awake to develop a new relationship with God (see Heaven and Hell 85).

The idea of having a king, Saul, may have seemed attractive to the Israelites. But it may not have been the best idea for their relationship with God. In the previous chapter we learned that by transitioning from having a prophet to having a king, the Israelites prioritized one aspect of their relationship with God over another: faith over charity, or truth over goodness. In reality, we need both.

主是爱本身,以智慧本身的形式表达。爱是他的本质,也是他的全部。智慧-对如何将爱付诸行动的热爱理解-稍微有点外在,为爱提供了一种表达自我的方式。 当圣经说“耶和华”时,它代表的是至高无上的爱,这是主的本质。那爱本身就是一个完整的整体,而爱也是一个,只适用于主的名字。然而,智慧表达在各种各样的思想和观念中,这些著作统称为神的真理。也有许多虚构的神,有时天使和人也可以被称为神(耶和华说摩西将成为亚伦的神)。因此,当圣经称上帝为“上帝”时,多数情况下是指神圣的真理。 在其他情况下,“上帝”指的是所谓的神圣人类。情况是这样的: 作为人类,我们不能直接将主作为上帝的爱来参与。它太强大了,太纯净了。相反,我们必须通过神圣的真理了解他来接近他。因此,神圣的真理是人类形式的主,这是我们可以接近和理解的形式。因此,“上帝”也被用来指代人类这一方面,因为它是真理的表达。

按照瑞典博格的说法,时间和空间不存在于精神现实中,它们是纯粹的自然事物,只存在于物质层面。这就意味着,一个精神性的东西不可能在时间上的另一个精神性的东西 "之后 "发生,因为没有时间。而一个精神性的东西也不可能在空间上 "追随 "另一个精神性的东西,因为没有空间。 相反,灵性的现实是建立在灵性状态的基础上,或天使的爱和思想。这些爱和思想以因果链的方式连接在一起,天使们的体验就像我们体验时间一样;一个思想在精神层面上流向另一个思想,而天使们感觉到这种进步,就像我们感觉到一个时刻流向另一个时刻的进步一样。当天使有类似的思想和感觉时,他们体验到的亲近感和我们对肉体亲近感的体验是非常相同的;他们对 "空间 "的概念是整个精神世界中的灵魂所拥有的思想和情感的变化。 当《圣经》将某件事情描述为 "后边 "的东西时,那么,属灵的意义就与属灵状态的递进有关;它是在前边的东西基础上产生的新的属灵状态。由于较高的状态会流入较低的状态,所以 "之后 "的东西往往是较低的、较外在的状态。例如,内心深处对他人的善的渴望,会自动地流向具体的想法,即我们可以做的具体的善事。那么,这些具体的想法,就会 "在 "善的欲望之后。

油在圣经中代表着主的爱,所以用油膏涂抹某人(或某物)是使这个人(或物)成为主的代表。当然,在最终的层面上,主自己,即耶稣,被称为 "受膏者",与 "弥赛亚 "或 "基督 "有类似的含义。作为受膏者,意味着他就是爱本身,通过神圣的真实思想呈现给我们。国王和祭司受膏的事实意味着他们也可以代表来自美好的爱,在更低的层次上代表真正的思想。
