1 Pero el SEÑOR había dicho a Abram: Vete de tu tierra y de tu naturaleza, y de la casa de tu padre, a la tierra que yo te mostraré;

2 y haré de ti una nación grande, y te bendeciré, y engrandeceré tu nombre, y serás bendición.

3 Y bendeciré a los que te bendijeren, y a los que te maldijeren maldeciré; y serán benditas en ti todas las familias de la tierra.

4 Y se fue Abram, como el SEÑOR le dijo; y fue con él Lot; y era Abram de edad de setenta y cinco años cuando salió de Harán.

5 Y tomó Abram a Sarai su mujer, y a Lot hijo de su hermano, y toda su hacienda que habían ganado, y las almas que habían hecho en Harán, y salieron para ir a tierra de Canaán; y a tierra de Canaán llegaron.

6 Y pasó Abram por aquella tierra hasta el lugar de Siquem, hasta el alcornoque de More; y el cananeo estaba entonces en la tierra.

7 Y apareció el SEÑOR a Abram, y le dijo: A tu simiente daré esta tierra. Y edificó allí un altar al SEÑOR, que se le había aparecido.

8 Y se pasó de allí a un monte al oriente de Betel, y tendió su tienda, teniendo a Betel al occidente y Hai al oriente; y edificó allí altar al SEÑOR, e invocó el nombre del SEÑOR.

9 Y movió Abram de allí , caminando y yendo hacia el mediodía.

10 Y hubo hambre en la tierra, y descendió Abram a Egipto para peregrinar allá; porque era grande el hambre en la tierra.

11 Y aconteció que cuando llegó para entrar en Egipto, dijo a Sarai su mujer: He aquí, ahora conozco que eres mujer hermosa de vista;

12 y será, que cuando te vean los egipcios, dirán: Su mujer es; y me matarán a mí, y a ti te darán la vida.

13 Ahora pues, di que eres mi hermana, para que yo halle bien por causa tuya, y viva mi alma por amor de ti.

14 Y aconteció que, cuando entró Abram en Egipto, los egipcios vieron la mujer que era hermosa en gran manera.

15 También la vieron los príncipes del Faraón, y se la alabaron al Faraón; y fue llevada la mujer a casa del Faraón,

16 que hizo bien a Abram por causa de ella; y tuvo ovejas, y vacas, y asnos, y siervos, y criadas, y asnas y camellos.

17 Mas el SEÑOR hirió al Faraón y a su casa de grandes plagas, por causa de Sarai, mujer de Abram.

18 Entonces el Faraón llamó a Abram y le dijo: ¿Qué es esto que has hecho conmigo? ¿Por qué no me declaraste que era tu mujer?

19 ¿Por qué dijiste: Es mi hermana? ¡Y yo la tomé para mí por mujer! Ahora, pues, he aquí tu mujer, tómala y vete.

20 Entonces el Faraón mandó acerca de él a varones, que le acompañaran, y a su mujer, con todo lo que tenía.

Exploring the Meaning of Genesis 12      

By Rev. George McCurdy

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.
