Napsal(a) Emanuel Swedenborg
Here are some excerpts from Swedenborg's "Arcana Coelestia" that help explain the inner meaning of this chapter:
AC 3230. In the internal sense this chapter treats, First, of the Lord’s spiritual kingdom, and its derivations (verses 1-4). That it was separated from the Lord‘s celestial kingdom (verses 5, 6). That the representative of the Lord by Abraham was ended (verses 7, 8). And that the representative of the Lord by Isaac and Ishmael began (verses 9-11).
AC 3231. Secondly, the spiritual church, which is represented by Ishmael, together with its derivations, is treated of (verses 12-18).)
AC 3232. Thirdly, the conception and birth of the Divine natural are treated of; as to good, which is meant by Esau; and as to truth, which is meant by Jacob (verses 19-25).
AC 3233. Fourthly, the priority of good and of truth in the church is treated of (verses 26-34).
