1 Og Herren sa til Abram: Dra bort fra ditt land og fra din slekt og fra din fars hus til det land som jeg vil vise dig!

2 Og jeg vil gjøre dig til et stort folk; jeg vil velsigne dig og gjøre ditt navn stort, og du skal bli en velsignelse!

3 Og jeg vil velsigne dem som velsigner dig, og den som forbanner dig, vil jeg forbanne; og i dig skal alle jordens slekter velsignes

4 Så drog Abram bort som Herren hadde sagt til ham, og Lot drog med ham. Og Abram var fem og sytti år gammel da han drog ut fra Karan.

5 Og Abram tok med sig Sarai, sin hustru, og Lot, sin brorsønn, og all deres eiendom som de hadde vunnet, og de folk som de hadde fått i Karan; og de drog ut for å reise til Kana'ans land, og de kom til Kana'ans land.

6 Og Abram drog gjennem landet til Sikem-bygden, til Mores terebintelund; og kana'anittene bodde dengang der i landet.

7 Da åpenbarte Herren sig for Abram og sa: Din ætt vil jeg gi dette land. Og han bygget der et alter for Herren, som hadde åpenbaret sig for ham.

8 Derfra flyttet han til fjellene østenfor Betel og slo op sitt telt med Betel i vest og Ai i øst; og han bygget der et alter for Herren og påkalte Herrens navn.

9 Og Abram drog efter hvert videre til sydlandet*. / {* d.e. den sydligste del av Kana'an.}

10 Så blev det hungersnød i landet; og Abram drog ned til Egypten for å opholde sig der, for hungersnøden var stor i landet.

11 Og da han ikke hadde langt igjen til Egypten, sa han til Sarai, sin hustru: Jeg vet jo at du er en vakker kvinne.

12 Når nu egypterne får se dig, vil de si: Dette er hans hustru, og så slår de mig ihjel og lar dig leve.

13 Kjære, si at du er min søster, så det kan gå mig vel, og mitt liv kan bli spart for din skyld!

14 Da nu Abram kom til Egypten, så egypterne at kvinnen var meget vakker.

15 Også Faraos høvdinger så henne og roste henne for Farao, og så blev kvinnen hentet til Faraos hus.

16 Og han gjorde vel imot Abram for hennes skyld, og han fikk både småfe og storfe og asener og træler og trælkvinner og aseninner og kameler.

17 Men Herren hjemsøkte Farao og hans hus med store plager for Abrams hustru Sarais skyld.

18 Da kalte Farao Abram til sig og sa: Hvad er det du har gjort imot mig? Hvorfor lot du mig ikke vite at hun er din hustru?

19 Hvorfor sa du: Hun er min søster, så jeg tok henne til hustru? Se, her har du din hustru, ta henne og gå!

20 Og Farao gav nogen menn befaling til å følge ham på veien med hans hustru og alt det han eide.

Exploring the Meaning of Genesis 12      

By Joe David

The Inner Meaning of Genesis 12

In 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.
