1 そこでヨセフはそばに立っているすべての人ので、自分を制しきれなくなったので、「人は皆ここから出てください」と呼ばわった。それゆえヨセフが兄弟たちに自分のことを明かした時、ひとりも彼のそばに立っている者はなかった。

2 ヨセフは声をあげて泣いた。エジプトびとはこれを聞き、パロのもこれを聞いた

3 ヨセフは兄弟たちに言った、「わたしはヨセフです。父はまだ生きながらえていますか」。兄弟たちは答えることができなかった。彼らは驚き恐れたからである。

4 ヨセフは兄弟たちに言った、「わたしに近寄ってください」。彼らが近寄ったので彼は言った、「わたしはあなたがたの弟ヨセフです。あなたがたがエジプト売った者です。

5 しかしわたしをここに売ったのを嘆くことも、悔むこともいりません。は命を救うために、あなたがたよりさきにわたしをつかわされたのです。

6 この二年の間、中にききんがあったが、なお年の間は耕すことも刈り入れることもないでしょう。

7 は、あなたがたのすえを地に残すため、また大いなる救をもってあなたがたの命を助けるために、わたしをあなたがたよりさきにつかわされたのです。

8 それゆえわたしをここにつかわしたのはあなたがたではなく、です。はわたしをパロの父とし、その全とし、またエジプトのつかさとされました。

9 あなたがたは父のもとに急ぎ上って言いなさい、『あなたのヨセフが、こう言いました。がわたしをエジプト全国のとされたから、ためらわずにわたしの所へ下ってきなさい。

10 あなたはゴセンの地に住み、あなたも、あなたのらも、孫たちも、も牛も、その他のものもみな、わたしの近くにおらせます。

11 ききんはなお年つづきますから、あなたも、族も、その他のものも、みな困らないように、わたしはそこで養いましょう』。

12 あなたがたと弟ベニヤミンが見るとおり、あなたがたにら語っているのはこのわたしです。

13 あなたがたはエジプトでの、わたしのいっさいの栄えと、あなたがたが見るいっさいの事をわたしの父に告げ、急いでわたしの父をここへ連れ下りなさい」。

14 そしてヨセフは弟ベニヤミンのくびを抱いて泣き、ベニヤミンも彼のくびを抱いて泣いた。

15 またヨセフはすべての兄弟たちに口づけし、彼らを抱いて泣いた。そして兄弟たちは彼と語った。

16 時に、「ヨセフの兄弟たちがきた」と言ううわさがパロのに聞えたので、パロとその来たちとは喜んだ。

17 パロはヨセフに言った、「兄弟たちに言いなさい、『あなたがたは、こうしなさい。獣に荷を負わせてカナンの地へ行き、

18 父と族とを連れてわたしのもとへきなさい。わたしはあなたがたに、エジプトの地の良い物を与えます。あなたがたは、このの最も良いものを食べるでしょう』。

19 また彼らに命じなさい、『あなたがたは、こうしなさい。幼な子たちとたちのためにエジプトの地から車をもって行き、父を連れてきなさい。

20 家財に心を引かれてはなりません。エジプトの良い物は、あなたがたのものだからです』」。

21 イスラエルのらはそのようにした。ヨセフはパロの命に従って彼らに車を与え、また途中の食料をも与えた。

22 まためいめいに晴着を与えたが、ベニヤミンにはシケルと晴着着とを与えた。

23 また彼は父に次のようなものを贈った。すなわちエジプトの良い物を負わせたろば頭と、穀物、パン及び父の道中の食料を負わせた雌ろば頭。

24 こうしてヨセフは兄弟たちを送り去らせ、彼らに言った、「途中で争ってはなりません」。

25 彼らはエジプトから上ってカナンの地に入り、父ヤコブのもとへ行って、

26 彼に言った、「ヨセフはなお生きていてエジプトのつかさです」。ヤコブは気が遠くなった。彼らの言うことが信じられなかったからである。

27 そこで彼らはヨセフがった言葉を残らず彼に告げた。父ヤコブはヨセフが自分を乗せるために送った車を見て元気づいた。

28 そしてイスラエルは言った、「満足だ。わがヨセフがまだ生きている。わたしは死ぬ前に行って彼を見よう」。

  

Exploring the Meaning of 創世記 45      

Napsal(a) Helen Kennedy

Genesis 45

In this chapter, we have a story that tells us about the way that our inner self can get to be "at one" again with our more external self.

1. Then Joseph could not refrain himself before all them that stood by him; and he cried, “Make everyone go from me. So no one stood with him while Joseph made himself known to his brothers.

In Verse 1, Joseph represents the innermost heavenly part of us. See Arcana Coelestia 5868. “Could not refrain himself,” shows the desire and urgency that our inner spirit has to flow into the external or most troubled parts of us. When Joseph cries out for everyone to leave the room, it shows how all non-essential things are banished to the sidelines.

In Verse 2, Joseph weeps aloud. This is a metaphor that shows the great joy that the inmost heavenly part of our mind experiences when it is conjoined with our outer self. This strong emotion shows the depth of the Lord's merciful love, and the house of Pharaoh hearing it shows that it is felt throughout the whole of the natural mind.

In Verse 3, when Joseph says to his brothers, "I am Joseph; is my father still alive?", they can't answer him. They're troubled. Why? Our natural self perceives the movement of the inner spiritual self, but instead of being filled with joy, it experiences turmoil and confusion. This new opening to deeper things is going to change things; our natural self is going to be ashamed of the way it has been treating spiritual things.

When, in Verse 4, Joseph asks his brothers to come closer to him, this symbolizes our inner spirit becoming more apparent to the external or natural part of us. The brothers go closer, indicating that the natural is starting to better grasp the new situation.

It's the affection of truth which allows us to love others. The brothers, when they sold Joseph into Egypt as a slave, showed how our outermost mind starts with little or no affection or love for inner spiritual things.

But the Lord works with us. Our inner spiritual mind gets sent to Egypt, but Providence is working all the time, long before we are aware of it. In Verse 5, Joseph urges his brothers not to worry. Our inner spirit does not want us to have anxiety in our hearts about this past alienation.

The famine in the land indicates the severe lack of good in the natural or outer self. There are still five years to go, which shows the length of time before the remnants of good and truth the Lord has instilled in us while we were young will be able to shine forth. Still, at this point, two years in, something is happening. Those remnants are starting to be taken out from our innermost recesses of mind, where they have been stored.

In Verse 7, that "God sent me before you to preserve a posterity for you in the earth," is the inner self assuring our natural self that Providence is taking care of things, that the stored remnants of good and truth are enough to seed the future.

Before the deepest spiritual levels can reveal themselves as part of our lives, we need to be instructed in factual knowledge and other natural truths, all represented by the Pharoah and Egypt. However, these naturals truths depend on spiritual truths for their existence. That's what is meant in Verse 8, when it says that Joseph was “a father to Pharoah.”

In Verse 9, hastening or hurrying shows a joyful desire for connection. For the brothers to go back to their father and tel him about Joseph shows how a deeper, inner level that we thought was long lost can speak to us again.

“Come down to me; and do not tarry,” again shows the enthusiasm and happiness of the inner spirit at the possibility of being joined with the natural, outer self. “God has made me lord of all Egypt” emphasizes that our natural selves need to act in accordance with the more profound, inner things.

Dwelling together in the land of Goshen, in Verse 10, with the children and grandchildren, illustrates that in this new state, the spiritual and natural will be joined together forever and not separated again.

In Verse 11, we're given an image of how the spiritual always provides for and nourishes life on the natural level.

Verse 12 is a reassurance that what Joseph is saying is true. Joseph emphasizes it by saying, “And the eyes of my brother, Benjamin”. Benjamin signifies an intermediary between the deepest levels meant by Joseph and the outermost levels meant by Joseph’s brothers.

In Verse 13, the reference to glory is made, because when the natural level perceives something from the spiritual level it comes with light, brilliance and radiance. Joseph's urging his brothers to bring their father to him is another example of how, with love and emotion, the spiritual within us can barely contain its joy.

In verses 14 and, 15, Joseph and Benjamin weeping while holding one another gives a profound image of how deeply and completely the Lord desires to be united with us. Joseph’s brothers being able to talk with him comes in the aftermath of the outer or natural’s acceptance of deeper truths and realities, and there being a communication between inner and outer things.

In Verse 16, it says that the report of these events "was heard in Pharoah’s house, saying, Joseph’s brothers have come: so it pleased Pharoah and his servants well." The deeper truths have infilled the natural and there is joy everywhere, even down to the lowest things, meant here by Pharoah’s servants.

In Verse 17, Pharaoh says to Joseph, “Say to your brothers, ‘Do this: Load your animals and depart; go to the land of Canaan. The phrase “Pharoah said,” means that it was done. Factual knowledges or outward truths, which are vessels for inner truths, were being filled with good or affection, which is represented by loading the animals.

In Verse 18, Joseph tells his brothers to bring their father and their households to him. This shows how inner truths are drawing closer to outward or factual knowledge. For example, a person may know the fact that life continues after death. By the brothers bringing their father and their households, the person becomes aware of that reality and rejoices that it’s true. “Eating the fat of the land” signifies a person making that truth their own or really believing it.

Being commanded, in Verse 19, means that a person needs to will this, do this, believe this. The truths that infill our natural facts are described as ‘doctrines’ which will teach the “little ones, and your wives,” or people who do not already know of these truths and their inner realities. “Bringing Joseph’s father” completes the reality because he represents the spiritual good which the truths must look towards.

Verse 20 is an admonition for us to let go of our former things, the things we thought were important in our lives. The best of all of Egypt will be given to us, and instead of just empty, factual knowledge, our knowledges will be filled with inner, deeper truths that look to good as their end. For example, instead of knowing we need to be kind to others, we will actually hold charitable thoughts and intend kind and good things towards others.

In Verse 21, when we obey and start the journey, we put things into effect; spiritual things can start flowing into the natural. We receive truths that are pleasing to use, and the support we need to use the newer truths in their lives.

22 He gave to all of them, to each man, changes of garments; but to Benjamin he gave three hundred pieces of silver, and five changes of garments.

In Verse 22, the garments, like the provisions for the journey, show that Joseph provided all the things the brothers might need to make their journey. Clothes here mean truths which are new or enlivened by good. The love which Joseph has for Benjamin serves as an intermediary; the truth represented by the silver is a more interior conjunction. Anything with the number three, or a combination of it, means what is complete.

In Verse 23, these gifts which were freely given represent the things that flow freely from the Lord through the spirit into our natural minds. The things of Egypt are factual knowledges that serve our spiritual life. The male and female donkeys represent truths and goods, respectively.

In Verse 24, when Joseph sends his brothers away, it means that our inner life passes through changes - this time referring to a state when it becomes less apparent and seemingly concealed from us. “See that you do not become troubled along the way” shows the desire of the inner spirit for our natural self to not be disturbed or troubled when this happens. It seems like the Lord is saying to us here, that even though we can’t see Him, we can remain peaceful because He really is still there.

In Verse 25, the brothers leave Egypt. They return to Jacob, who represents natural, but not spiritual good. (When Jacob's name is changed to "Israel", this represents a change of state from the natural to the spiritual.)

When, in Verse 26, the brothers tell Jacob that Joseph is still alive, it represents that natural part of us being told that spiritual states, or more inward things, are real or alive. That Joseph is governor of Egypt shows that inner spiritual things have power over outer, natural ones. Jacob's disbelief and fainting shows a lack of understanding in out natural minds, about how all this could be so.

The natural mind comes around. In Verse 27, being told “all the words of Joseph” shows an influx of inner spiritual things into the natural. Seeing “the wagons which Joseph had sent” shows a dawning awareness. Being revived shows that our natural mind begins to be able to experience a new goodness of life.

In Verse 28, Israel (not Jacob!) says, "It is enough; Joseph my son is still alive: I will go and see him before I die."

The use of the name Israel shows that now good from the inner states is being made a part of our lives. Our joy comes from learning that spiritual things which were concealed were not really lost. “I will go and see him” being said shows an immediate willingness and eagerness to experience the deeper, inner things of our spiritual life.

ほとんどの場合、"before "の意味は簡単です。相対的な時間を評価する方法としても、"誰かの前で "という意味でも、"before "は使われます。しかし,主に関連して使われる場合には,より深い意味を持ちます。主の前に」いるということは、主の前にいるだけでなく、主から善の欲求と真理の理解を受けて、それに従って生きることを意味します。そして、主に関連して時間の評価として使われる場合、「前に」とは「永遠に」という意味であり、私たちが経験する時間ではなく、霊的な状態を指します。

兄弟
聖書の中で「兄弟」という言葉が使われる方法は二つあります。一つは実際の血縁関係を意味するもので,もう一つは「人間の兄弟関係」のような共通性を表す広い意味で使われています。 第二の用法は聖書全体を通して一貫しており、良いことをする愛に生きている人を意味しています。これは、単純な従順の喜びから、人に奉仕する慈善的な愛、主ご自身の高尚な愛まで、さまざまなレベルであり得ます。しかし、これらの愛の中にあるものはすべて兄弟です。 黙示録の説明、n. 746。 "このような人たちが兄弟と呼ばれるのは、すべての人が一つの父、すなわち主を持っているからである。彼らは一つの父の子であるから、兄弟でもある。また、父である主の主の主の主な戒めである、互いに愛し合うことは、その結果、彼らを兄弟とするのは愛である。 このケースは、血縁関係を介した兄弟の場合はより複雑であり、意味は、兄弟が誰であるかと物語の状況の文脈によってより影響を受ける。一般的には、兄弟は善を行いたいという願望と、善を行う方法を理解することの間に存在することができる一体感を反映しています。これはカインとアベル、そしていくつかの双子のペアに当てはまります。ヤコブとエサウ、ユダの息子ザラとパレズ、ヨセフの息子エフライムとマナセです。 このような善と真理の兄弟関係のために、兄弟は文脈に応じてどちらかを表すことができます。実際,ヨセフの兄弟の意味は,ユダヤ教の前駆者の霊的な衰退と再生を表すものとして,ヨセフの物語の中で移り変わっていきます。...

エジプト
聖書の中でエジプトとは、知識と知識の愛を意味します。良い意味では、聖書を通して主からの真理の知識を意味していますが、自然な意味では、単に地上の知識を蓄えて所有することを意味しています。そして、聖書からの知識であっても、必ずしも良いものとは限りません。しかし、それらは、物事を知るためだけに、あるいは学ばれているという評判を得るためだけに学ばれている場合です。 だから、エジプトはあなたが物事を学ぶために行く場所ですが、天になるためには、不毛な「知ること」から抜け出して、内的な善への欲求で満たされているカナンの地へと旅をしなければなりません。 エジプトがヨセフに支配されていたとき、そこはヨセフの父や兄弟たちの避難所だったというのは興味深いことです。このことは、人の内なる心が学問の地で支配されると、役に立つことを多く学ぶことができることを示しています。しかし、やがてヨセフを知らないファラオが現れ、イスラエルの子らは奴隷にされてしまいました。ファラオは外面的な心を表しています。それが担当しているときには、知っていることの興奮と自己満足は、内面的な心を奴隷のように減少させることができます。心は-イスラエルの子供たちのように-レンガ、または外部の外観から人造の偽りを作って終わる。

答える
答えを出す」ということは、一般的に霊的な受容性の状態を示しています。これは究極的には、私たちの心と心に真の考えと善のための願望を常に注ぎ込もうとしてくださる主を受け入れることを意味します。それはまた、自分自身の外面的な部分で、自分自身の内面的な部分の導きを受け入れることでもあります。 聖書の中の "答える "は、しばしば "言う "と対になっています。これらの場合、一般的に、それは受容性と相まって知覚のレベルを示しています。これは、あなたが主から来るものを受け入れるだけでなく、それを見て、その中にある真理を認識し、それがあなたをより良い人生に導くということを意味しています。

主は愛そのものであり、知恵そのものの形で表現されます。それから、愛は彼の本質であり、彼の最深部です。知恵-愛を行動に移す方法についての愛情のある理解-はわずかに外的であり、愛に自分自身を表現する方法を与えます。 聖書が「エホバ」について語るとき、それは主の本質である最も深い愛を表しています。その愛はそれ自体で一つの完全で完全なものであり、エホバもまた一つであり、主にのみ適用される名前です。しかし、知恵は、著作がまとめて神の真実と呼ぶ、非常に多様な思考とアイデアで表現されます。また、多くの想像上の神がいます、そして時々天使と人々は神と呼ばれることができます(主はモーセがアーロンにとって神であると言った)。ですから、聖書が主を「神」と呼ぶとき、ほとんどの場合、それは神の真理を指します。 他の場合、「神」は神の人間と呼ばれるものに言及しています。これがある場合: 人間として、私たちは神の愛として主に直接関わることはできません。強力すぎて純粋すぎます。代わりに、神の真理を通して神を理解することによって、神にアプローチしなければなりません。神の真理は、人間の形の主であり、私たちがアプローチし理解できる形です。したがって、「神」は、この人間的側面に関しても使用されます。なぜなら、それは真実の表現だからです。

何かを理解するときに「見える」と言うのはよくあることです。そして、聖書の中の「見る」というのは、確かに霊的なものを把握し、理解することを表しています。ですから、私たちを見ることができる目は、霊的なものを理解することができる知性を表しているのです。 もちろん、これは否定的な意味でも使われます。聖書は人々が目を持っていて見ることを拒否していることを語っており、主がこの世におられた時には、不快な目を摘み取るように助言されました。これは、真実を認めることを拒否したり、偽りに惑わされたりすることを表しています。

見る

スウェーデンボルグによると、時間と空間は、霊的な現実には存在しません、彼らは物理的な平面上にのみ存在する純粋に自然なものです。これは、時間がないので、1つの霊的なものは、時間内の別の霊的なものの "後に "起こることができないことを意味します。そして、ある霊的なものは、空間がないので、空間の中で別の霊的なものに "後から "続くことはできません。 代わりに、スピリチュアルな現実は、スピリチュアルな状態、つまり天使の愛と思考に基づいて構造化されています。これらの愛と思考は原因と結果の連鎖の中でつながっていて、天使たちは私たちが時間を経験するのと同じように経験しています。そして天使が似たような思考や感情を持っている時、彼らは私達の物理的な親密さの経験と非常に同じである親密さを経験しています;彼らの考える「空間」とは、霊的な世界全体で霊によって保持される思考や愛情の変化です。 聖書が何かを他の何かの「後」と表現しているとき、霊的な意味は霊的な状態の進行と関係しています。そして、高い状態は低い状態に流れ込むので、「その後」に来るものは、より低い、より外的なものになる傾向があります。例えば、他人に良いことをしたいという内的な深い願望は、私たちができる具体的な良いことの具体的なアイデアに自ずと流れていきます。それらの具体的なアイデアは、善良でありたいという願望の「後」になるのです。

食べる
私たちの体は食事をすると、食べ物を分解して、そこからエネルギーと体を作ったり、修復したりするための材料の両方を得ます。 そのプロセスは、聖書の中の象徴的なレベルでは、はるかに同じです。食べ物は、善への欲求と、その善への欲求から来る洞察力、つまり主から来る善と理解を表しています。しかし、それらを利用するためには、私たちはそれらを取り込んで自分のものにしなければなりません。

パン
パン」という言葉は、聖書の中で二つの意味で使われています。実際のパンを意味する場合もあれば、一般的な食べ物を意味する場合もあります。 一般的に食べ物を見てみると、食べ物には主に2つの成分があることがわかります:私たちにエネルギーを与えるための脂肪と炭水化物、そして私たちの体が新しい組織を構築し、機能を実行するのを助けるためのタンパク質、ビタミン、ミネラルです。霊的な食べ物もまた,この二つの必要を満たしてくれます。わたしたちが主に任せるならば,主はわたしたちを善良でありたいという願望で満たしてくださいます - 脂肪や炭水化物が提供するエネルギーに似ています。主はまた,真理,すなわち,その願望をどのようにして実行に移すかという理解を与えてくださいます。聖書の中の食物とは、それゆえに、高次の意味での霊的生活であり、最高の意味での主ご自身である主からの、すべての良いもの、真のものを表しているのです。 しかし、すべての食べ物の中で、パンはおそらく最も基本的で純粋なものであり、エネルギーが詰まった形をしています。それゆえに、パンはすべての善の欲求の中で最も中心的なもの、すなわち主ご自身の愛を表しています。
