1 Or l’Eterno disse ad Abramo: "Vattene dal tuo paese e dal tuo parentado e dalla casa di tuo padre, nel paese che io ti mostrerò;

2 e io farò di te una grande nazione e ti benedirò e renderò grande il tuo nome e tu sarai fonte di benedizione;

3 e benedirò quelli che ti benediranno e maledirò chi ti maledirà e in te saranno benedette tutte le famiglie della terra".

4 E Abramo se ne andò, come l’Eterno gli avea detto, e Lot andò con lui. Abramo aveva settantacinque anni quando partì da Charan.

5 E Abramo prese Sarai sua moglie e Lot, figliuolo del suo fratello, e tutti i beni che possedevano e le persone che aveano acquistate in Charan, e partirono per andarsene nel paese di Canaan; e giunsero nel paese di Canaan.

6 E Abramo traversò il paese fino al luogo di Sichem, fino alla quercia di Moreh. Or in quel tempo i Cananei erano nel paese.

7 E l’Eterno apparve ad Abramo e disse: "Io darò questo paese alla tua progenie". Ed egli edificò quivi un altare all’Eterno che gli era apparso.

8 E di là si trasportò verso la montagna a oriente di Bethel, e piantò le sue tende, avendo Bethel a occidente e Ai ad oriente; e quivi edificò un altare all’Eterno e invocò il nome dell’Eterno.

9 Poi Abramo si partì, proseguendo da un accampamento all’altro, verso mezzogiorno.

10 Or venne nel paese una carestia; e Abramo scese in Egitto per soggiornarvi, perché la fame era grave nel paese.

11 E come stava per entrare in Egitto, disse a Sarai sua moglie: "Ecco, io so che tu sei una donna di bell’aspetto;

12 e avverrà che quando gli Egiziani t’avranno veduta, diranno: Ella è sua moglie; e uccideranno me, ma a te lasceranno la vita.

13 Deh, di’ che sei mia sorella, perché io sia trattato bene a motivo di te, e la vita mi sia conservata per amor tuo".

14 E avvenne che quando Abramo fu giunto in Egitto, gli Egiziani osservarono che la donna era molto bella.

15 E i principi di Faraone la videro e la lodarono dinanzi a Faraone; e la donna fu menata in casa di Faraone.

16 Ed egli fece del bene ad Abramo per amor di lei; ed Abramo ebbe pecore e buoi e asini e servi e serve e asine e cammelli.

17 Ma l’Eterno colpì Faraone e la sua casa con grandi piaghe, a motivo di Sarai, moglie d’Abramo.

18 Allora Faraone chiamò Abramo e disse: "Che m’hai tu fatto? perché non m’hai detto ch’era tua moglie? perché hai detto:

19 E’ mia sorella? ond’io me la son presa per moglie. Or dunque eccoti la tua moglie; prenditela e vattene!"

20 E Faraone diede alla sua gente ordini relativi ad Abramo, ed essi fecero partire lui, sua moglie, e tutto quello ch’ei possedeva.

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.
