1 Or l'Eternel avait dit à Abram : Sors de ton pays, et d'avec ta parenté, et de la maison de ton père, [et viens] au pays que je te montrerai.

2 Et je te ferai devenir une grande nation, et te bénirai, et je rendrai ton nom grand, et tu seras béni.

3 Je bénirai ceux qui te béniront, et je maudirai ceux qui te maudiront; et toutes les familles de la terre seront bénies en toi.

4 Abram donc partit, comme l'Eternel lui avait dit, et Lot alla avec lui; et Abram était âgé de soixante et quinze ans, quand il sortit de Caran.

5 Abram prit aussi Saraï sa femme, et Lot fils de son frère, et tout leur bien, qu'ils avaient acquis, et les personnes qu'ils avaient eues à Caran; et ils partirent pour venir au pays de Canaan, auquel ils entrèrent.

6 Et Abram passa au travers de ce pays-là jusqu'au lieu de Sichem, [et] jusqu'en la plaine de Moré; et les Cananéens étaient alors dans ce pays-là.

7 Et l'Eternel apparut à Abram, et lui dit : Je donnerai ce pays à ta postérité. Et Abram bâtit là un autel à l'Eternel qui lui était apparu.

8 Et il se transporta de là vers la montagne, qui est à l'Orient de Béthel, et y tendit ses tentes, ayant Béthel à l'Occident, et Haï à l'Orient ; et il bâtit là un autel à l'Eternel, et invoqua le nom de l'Eternel.

9 Puis Abram partit [de là], marchant et s'avançant vers le Midi.

10 Mais la famine étant survenue dans le pays, Abram descendit en Egypte pour s'y retirer; car la famine était grande au pays.

11 Et il arriva comme il était près d'entrer en Egypte, qu'il dit à Saraï, sa femme : Voici, je sais que tu es une fort belle femme;

12 C'est pourquoi il arrivera que quand les Egyptiens t'auront vue, ils diront : C'est la femme de cet homme, et ils me tueront, mais ils te laisseront vivre.

13 [Dis donc], je te prie, que tu es ma sœur, afin que je sois bien traité à cause de toi, et que, par ton moyen ma vie soit préservée.

14 Il arriva donc qu'aussitôt qu'Abram fut venu en Egypte, les Egyptiens virent que cette femme était fort belle.

15 Les principaux de la cour de Pharaon la virent aussi, et la louèrent devant lui, et elle fut enlevée [pour être menée] dans la maison de Pharaon.

16 Lequel fit du bien à Abram, à cause d'elle; de sorte qu'il en eut des brebis, des bœufs, des ânes, des serviteurs, des servantes, des ânesses, et des chameaux.

17 Mais l'Eternel frappa de grandes plaies Pharaon et sa maison, à cause de Saraï femme d'Abram.

18 Alors Pharaon appela Abram, et lui dit : Qu'est-ce que tu m'as fait? pourquoi ne m'as-tu pas déclaré que c'était ta femme?

19 Pourquoi as-tu dit, c'est ma sœur? car je l'avais prise pour ma femme; mais maintenant, voici ta femme, prends-la, et t'en va.

20 Et Pharaon ayant donné ordre à ses gens, ils le conduisirent, lui, sa femme, et tout ce qui était à lui.

The Inner Meaning of Genesis 12

In the previous chapter, 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. Here are some key excerpts:

AC 1401. True historical things begin here, all of which are representative, and each word significative. The things related in this chapter concerning Abram represent the Lord‘s state from earliest childhood up to youth. As the Lord was born in the same way as other men, He also advanced from an obscure state to one more lucid. "Haran" is the first state, which was obscure; " Shechem" is the second; "the oakgrove Moreh" is the third; "the mountain which had Bethel toward the sea and Ai on the east," is the fourth; and the "journey thence toward the south into Egypt," is the fifth.

AC 1402. The things told of Abram’s sojourn in Egypt represent and signify the Lord‘s first instruction. "Abram" is the Lord; " Sarai," as a wife, is truth to be adjoined to the celestial " Sarai," as a sister, is intellectual truth; "Egypt" is memory-knowledge (scientia). The progress from memory-knowledges (a scientificis) even to celestial truths is described; this was according to Divine order, that the Lord’s Human Essence might be conjoined with His Divine Essence, and at the same time become Jehovah.
