1 Ora, o Senhor disse a Abrão: Sai-te da tua terra, da tua parentela, e da casa de teu pai, para a terra que eu te mostrarei.

2 Eu farei de ti uma grande nação; abençoar-te-ei, e engrandecerei o teu nome; e tu, sê uma bênção.

3 Abençoarei aos que te abençoarem, e amaldiçoarei àquele que te amaldiçoar; e em ti serão benditas todas as famílias da terra.

4 Partiu, pois Abrão, como o Senhor lhe ordenara, e Ló foi com ele. Tinha Abrão setenta e cinco anos quando saiu de Harã.

5 Abrão levou consigo a Sarai, sua mulher, e a Ló, filho de seu irmão, e todos os bens que haviam adquirido, e as almas que lhes acresceram em Harã; e saíram a fim de irem à terra de Canaã; e à terra de Canaã chegaram.

6 Passou Abrão pela terra até o lugar de Siquém, até o carvalho de Moré. Nesse tempo estavam os cananeus na terra.

7 Apareceu, porém, o Senhor a Abrão, e disse: ë tua semente darei esta terra. Abrão, pois, edificou ali um altar ao Senhor, que lhe aparecera.

8 Então passou dali para o monte ao oriente de Betel, e armou a sua tenda, ficando-lhe Betel ao ocidente, e Ai ao oriente; também ali edificou um altar ao Senhor, e invocou o nome do Senhor.

9 Depois continuou Abrão o seu caminho, seguindo ainda para o sul.

10 Ora, havia fome naquela terra; Abrão, pois, desceu ao Egito, para peregrinar ali, porquanto era grande a fome na terra.

11 Quando ele estava prestes a entrar no Egito, disse a Sarai, sua mulher: Ora, bem sei que és mulher formosa à vista;

12 e acontecerá que, quando os egípcios te virem, dirão: Esta é mulher dele. E me matarão a mim, mas a ti te guardarão em vida.

13 Dize, peço-te, que és minha irmã, para que me vá bem por tua causa, e que viva a minha alma em atenção a ti.

14 E aconteceu que, entrando Abrão no Egito, viram os egípcios que a mulher era mui formosa.

15 Até os príncipes de Faraó a viram e gabaram-na diante dele; e foi levada a mulher para a casa de Faraó.

16 E ele tratou bem a Abrão por causa dela; e este veio a ter ovelhas, bois e jumentos, servos e servas, jumentas e camelos.

17 Feriu, porém, o Senhor a Faraó e a sua casa com grandes pragas, por causa de Sarai, mulher de Abrão.

18 Então chamou Faraó a Abrão, e disse: Que é isto que me fizeste? por que não me disseste que ela era tua mulher?

19 Por que disseste: E minha irmã? de maneira que a tomei para ser minha mulher. Agora, pois, eis aqui tua mulher; toma-a e vai-te.

20 E Faraó deu ordens aos seus guardas a respeito dele, os quais o despediram a ele, e a sua mulher, e a tudo o que tinha.

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.
