1 耶和華所造的,惟有比田野一切的活物更狡猾。女人豈是真不許你們園中所有上的果子麼?

2 女人:園中上的果子,我們可以

3 惟有園當中那棵上的果子,:你們不可,也不可摸,免得你們

4 女人:你們不一定

5 因為知道,你們的日子眼睛就明亮了,你們便如知道善惡。

6 於是女人見那棵的果子作食物,也悅人的眼目,且是可喜愛的,能使人有智慧,就摘下果子來吃了,又丈夫,他丈夫吃了

7 他們人的眼睛就明亮了,才知道自己是赤身露體,便拿無花果樹子為自己編作裙子。

8 起了涼耶和華在園中行走。那人和他妻子的聲音,就藏在園裡的樹木中,躲避耶和華的面。

9 耶和華呼喚那人,對他:你在那裡?

10 :我在園中見你的聲音,我就害怕;因為我赤身露體,我便藏了。

11 耶和華:誰告訴你赤身露體呢?莫非你吃了我吩咐你不可的那上的果子嗎?

12 那人:你所賜我與我同居的女人,他把那上的果子我,我就吃了

13 耶和華女人:你作的是甚麼事呢?女人:那引誘我,我就吃了

14 耶和華:你既作了這事,就必受咒詛,比一切的牲畜野獸更甚。你必用肚子行走,終身土。

15 我又要叫你女人彼此為仇;你的後裔女人的後裔也彼此為仇。女人的後裔要傷你的;你要傷他的腳跟

16 又對女人:我必多多加增你懷胎的苦楚;你生產兒女必多受苦楚。你必戀慕你丈夫;你丈夫必管轄你。

17 又對亞當:你既妻子的話,吃了我所吩咐你不可的那上的果子,地必為你的緣故受咒詛;你必終身勞苦才能從地裡得的。

18 地必給你長出荊棘和蒺藜來;你也要田間的菜蔬。

19 你必汗流滿面才得糊口,直到你歸了土,因為你是從土而出的。你本是塵土,仍要歸於塵土。

20 亞當給他妻子起名夏娃,因為他是眾生之母。

21 耶和華為亞當和他妻子子作衣服給他們穿。

22 耶和華:那人已經與我們相似,能知道善惡;現在恐怕他伸又摘生命的果子,就永遠活著。

23 耶和華便打發他出伊甸園去,耕種他所自出之土。

24 於是把他趕出去了;又在伊甸園的東邊安設基路伯和四面動發火燄的,要把守生命道路

  

Exploring the Meaning of 創世記 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).
