1 耶和華亞伯蘭:你要離開本地、本族、父家,往我所要指示你的地去。

2 我必叫你成為國。我必賜福給你,叫你的名為;你也要叫別人得福。

3 為你祝福的,我必賜福與他;那咒詛你的,我必咒詛他。地上的萬族都要因你得福。

4 亞伯蘭就照著耶和華的吩咐去了;羅得也和他同去。亞伯蘭哈蘭的時候年七十五歲。

5 亞伯蘭將他妻子撒萊和姪兒羅得,連他們在哈蘭所積蓄的財物、所得的人口,都迦南地去。他們就到了迦南地。

6 亞伯蘭經過那地,到了示劍地方、摩利橡樹那裡。那時迦南人住在那地。

7 耶和華亞伯蘭顯現,:我要把這地賜你的後裔。亞伯蘭就在那裡為向他顯現的耶和華築了一座

8 從那裡他又遷到伯特利東邊的,支搭帳棚;西邊是伯特利,東邊是艾。他在那裡又為耶和華築了一座,求告耶和華的名。

9 後來亞伯蘭又漸漸遷往地去。

10 那地遭遇饑荒。因饑荒甚大,亞伯蘭埃及去,要在那裡暫居。

11 埃及,就對他妻子撒萊:我知道你是容貌俊美的婦人。

12 埃及人見你必:這是他的妻子,他們就要我,卻叫你存活。

13 求你,你是我的妹子,使我因你得平安,我的命也因你存活。

14 及至亞伯蘭到了埃及埃及人見那婦人極其美貌。

15 法老的臣宰見了他,就在法老面前誇獎他。那婦人就被帶進法老的宮去。

16 法老因這婦人就厚待亞伯蘭亞伯蘭得了許多牛、駱駝、公、母、僕婢。

17 耶和華亞伯蘭妻子撒萊的緣故,降災與法老和他的全家。

18 法老就召了亞伯蘭來,:你這向我作的是甚麼事呢?為甚麼沒有告訴我他是你的妻子

19 為甚麼他是你的妹子,以致我把他取來要作我的妻子?現在你的妻子在這裡,可以帶他走罷。

20 於是法老吩咐人將亞伯蘭和他妻子,並他所有的都送走了。

Exploring the Meaning of Genesis 12      

Napsal(a) Joe David

The Inner Meaning of Genesis 12

In Genesis 11, we met Abram for the first time, as his genealogy was traced down through the generations from Noah. Abram represents the beginning of a new spiritual state of humankind - a new church that would record preserve important external truths. Those external truths contained internal ones - true ideas about God the way people should live.

These external truths were encoded in stories, first preserved in oral traditions then in written scriptures in the time of Moses. In the current , Abram, goes, as commanded by God, the land of Canaan. In doing this, he effectively starts the Hebrew church (from Eber, Abraham's forebear).

All the geographic places in the land of Canaan its environs had been given spiritual significations by the people of the Most Ancient Church. In the new Word that would be written there, these places would be mentioned by name would signify spiritual ideas.

When Abraham is driven by famine in the land seek refuge in Egypt, it symbolizes a state of initial instruction for this new church. That early instruction is of an external type. Egypt, in the Word, represents scientific knowledge - the natural sciences - which teach the natural level in people.

There are two levels of "story" nested in the symbolism of the literal text. One is the spiritual story of humankind. Another, higher one, is the story of the inner spiritual process that would take place in the life of Jesus Christ. Both stories are traced out in Swedenborg's exegesis of the Word.

Here's an excerpt from his capstone work, True Christian Religion:

The Word has two senses hidden in its literal sense; these are called the spiritual the celestial senses. In the spiritual sense the contents of the Word refer chiefly the church in the celestial sense chiefly the Lord. Again in the spiritual sense its contents refer Divine truth in the celestial sense Divine good. (True Christian Religion 248)

A detailed description of the inner meaning of this chapter begins in Arcana Coelestia 1401.

圣经中提到的第一个祭坛是挪亚从方舟中出来后所建造的。在那祭坛上,他把洁净的动物献给了耶和华。山代表着耶和华,因为山是高高在上,我们在与主 "说话 "的时候,必须把自己的思想抬高到属世的事物之上。祭坛是一座小小的人造山,但当用在敬拜的时候,就能唤起这种思想的升起,火和烟被送上来,象征性地送上主。祭坛大多是用未切割的石头做成的。石头代表真理,未被人塑造的石头代表真理,未被人塑造的石头代表来自于道的真理,未被掺杂的真理。清净的兽代表着善事,代表着因为正确而做的慈善行为,而清净的鸟代表着对教义和行为的思考,代表着什么是正确的。所以呈现这些东西,就是承认我们从主那里得到了这些东西,并为这些东西感谢祂。 在以色列人的会幕中,燔祭坛代表善的承认,香坛代表真理。因此,这个大一点的祭坛在门外,是用黄铜做的,代表自然的善,而香坛是用金子做的,代表对耶和华的爱,从耶和华那里来的是真理。
