Postanak 10

Study

           

1 Ovo je povijest Noinih sinova: Šema, Hama i Jafeta, kojima su se rodili sinovi poslije Potopa.

2 Sinovi su Jafetovi: Gomer, Magog, Madaj, Javan, Tubal, Mešak, Tiras.

3 A sinovi su Gomerovi: Aškenaz, Rifat i Togarma.

4 Javanovi su opet sinovi: Eliša, Taršiš, Kitijci i Dodanci.

5 Od njih su se razgranali narodi po otocima. To su Jafetovi sinovi prema svojim zemljama - svaki s vlastitim jezikom - prema svojim plemenima i narodima.

6 Sinovi su Hamovi: Kuš i Misrajim, Put i Kanaan.

7 Kuševi su: Seba, Havila, Sabta, Rama i Sabteka. Ramini su: Šeba i Dedan.

8 Od Kuša se rodio Nimrod, koji je postao prvi velmoža na zemlji.

9 Voljom Jahve bio je silan lovac. Zato se veli: "Kao Nimrod, silan lovac voljom Jahve."

10 Glavno uporište njegova kraljevstva bili su: Babilon, Erek, Akad i Kalne, svi u zemlji Šinearu.

11 Iz ove je zemlje došao Ašur. On je podigao Ninivu, Rehobot Ir, Kalah

12 i Resen između Ninive i Kalaha (to je glavni grad).

13 Od Misrajima potekli su Ludijci, Anamijci, Lehabijci, Naftuhijci,

14 pa Patrušani, Kasluhijci i Kaftorci, od kojih su potekli Filistejci.

15 Od Kanaana potječe Sidon, njegov prvenac, i Het.

16 Dalje: Jebusejci, Amorejci, Girgašani,

17 Hivijci, Arkijci, Sinijci,

18 Arvađani, Semarjani i Hamaćani. Poslije se kanaanska plemena razgranaše,

19 tako da se granica Kanaanaca protezala od Sidona prema Geraru sve do Gaze pa prema Sodomi, Gomori, Admi i Sebojimu sve do Leše.

20 To su sinovi Hamovi prema svojim plemenima i jezicima, po svojim zemljama i narodima.

21 A i Šemu - praocu svih sinova Eberovih i starijem bratu Jafetovu - rodili se sinovi.

22 Šemovi su sinovi: Elam, Ašur, Arpakšad, Lud i Aram.

23 A Aramovi su sinovi: Us, Hul, Geter i Maš.

24 Arpakšad rodi Šelaha, Šelah rodi Ebera.

25 Eberu su se rodila dva sina: jednomu bješe ime Peleg, jer se za njegova vijeka zemlja razdijelila. Njegovu je bratu bilo ime Joktan.

26 Od Joktana se rodiše: Almodad, Šelef, Hasarmavet, Jerah,

27 Hadoram, Uzal, Dikla,

28 Obal, Abimael, Šeba,

29 Ofir, Havila i Jobab. Sve su to sinovi Joktanovi.

30 Njihova se naselja protezahu od Meše sve do Sefara, brdovitih krajeva na istoku.

31 To su sinovi Šemovi prema svojim plemenima, jezicima i zemljama, po svojim narodima.

32 To su rodovi Noinih sinova prema svojim lozama i narodima. Od njih su se razgranali narodi po zemlji poslije Potopa.

  

Exploring the Meaning of Postanak 10      

Napsal(a) New Christian Bible Study Staff

These chapters - with all the "begats" - don't seem to add a lot to the Bible reading experience. But... guess what! They're actually kind of interesting on the inside. This chapter actually describes the spread, and then the spiritual decline, of the Ancient Church.

In his exegesis, or explanation, of the kinds of religious thinking that the various people represent, Swedenborg provides some insight into human history, and into patterns of thought in our own lives, too.

Here are some excerpts from Swedenborg's "Arcana Coelestia":

AC 1130. The subject treated of throughout this whole chapter is the Ancient Church, and its propagation (verse 1).

AC 1131. They who had external worship corresponding to internal are the "sons of Japheth" (verse 2). They who had worship more remote from internal are the "sons of Gomer and Javan" (verses 3, 4). And they who had worship still more remote are the "isles of the nations" (verse 5).

AC 1132. They who cultivated knowledges, memory-knowledges, and rituals, and separated them from things internal, are the "sons of Ham" (verse 6). They who cultivated the knowledges of spiritual things are the "sons of Cush;" and they who cultivated the knowledges of celestial things are the "sons of Raamah" (verse 7).

AC 1133. Those treated of who have external worship in which are interior evils and falsities, "Nimrod" being such worship (verses 8, 9). The evils in such worship (verse 10). The falsities in such worship (verses 11, 12).

AC 1134. Concerning those who form for themselves new kinds of worship out of memory-knowledges by means of reasonings (verses 13, 14); and concerning those who make mere memory-knowledge of the knowledges of faith (verse 14).

AC 1135. Concerning external worship without internal, which is "Canaan," and the derivations of this worship (verses 15 to 18); and its extension (verses 19, 20).

AC 1136. Concerning internal worship, which is "Shem," and its extension even to the second Ancient Church (verse 21). Concerning internal worship and its derivations, which being from charity, are derivations of wisdom, of intelligence, of memory-knowledge, and of knowledges, which are signified by the "nations" (verses 22 to 24).

AC 1137. Concerning a certain church which arose in Syria, instituted by Eber, which is to be called the second Ancient Church, the internal worship of which is "Peleg," the external "Joktan" (verse 25). Its rituals are the nations named in verses 26 to 29. The extension of this church (verse 30).

AC 1138. That there were different kinds of worship in the Ancient Church, in accordance with the genius of each nation (verses 31, 32).
