1 RAB Avrama, ‹‹Ülkeni, akrabalarını, baba evini bırak, sana göstereceğim ülkeye git›› dedi,

2 ‹‹Seni büyük bir ulus yapacağım,
Seni kutsayacak, sana ün kazandıracağım,
Bereket kaynağı olacaksın.

3 Seni kutsayanları kutsayacak,
Seni lanetleyeni lanetleyeceğim.
Yeryüzündeki bütün halklar
Senin aracılığınla kutsanacak.››

4 Avram RABbin buyurduğu gibi yola çıktı. Lut da onunla birlikte gitti. Avram Harrandan ayrıldığı zaman yetmiş beş yaşındaydı.

5 Karısı Sarayı, yeğeni Lutu, Harranda kazandıkları malları, edindikleri uşakları yanına alıp Kenan ülkesine doğru yola çıktı. Oraya vardılar.

6 Avram ülke boyunca Şekemdeki More meşesine kadar ilerledi. O günlerde orada Kenanlılar yaşıyordu.

7 RAB Avrama görünerek, ‹‹Bu toprakları senin soyuna vereceğim›› dedi. Avram kendisine görünen RABbe orada bir sunak yaptı.

8 Oradan Beytelin doğusundaki dağlık bölgeye doğru gitti. Çadırını batıdaki Beytelle doğudaki Ay Kentinin arasına kurdu. Orada RABbe bir sunak yapıp RABbi adıyla çağırdı.

9 Sonra kona göçe Negeve doğru ilerledi.

10 Ülkedeki şiddetli kıtlık yüzünden Avram geçici bir süre için Mısıra gitti.

11 Mısıra yaklaştıklarında karısı Saraya, ‹‹Güzel bir kadın olduğunu biliyorum›› dedi,

12 ‹‹Olur ki Mısırlılar seni görüp, ‹Bu onun karısı› diyerek beni öldürür, seni sağ bırakırlar.

13 Lütfen, ‹Onun kızkardeşiyim› de ki, senin hatırın için bana iyi davransınlar, canıma dokunmasınlar.››

14 Avram Mısıra girince, Mısırlılar karısının çok güzel olduğunu farkettiler.

15 Kadını gören firavunun adamları, güzelliğini firavuna övdüler. Kadın saraya alındı.

16 Onun hatırı için firavun Avrama iyi davrandı. Avram davar, sığır, erkek ve dişi eşek, erkek ve kadın köle, deve sahibi oldu.

17 RAB Avramın karısı Saray yüzünden firavunla ev halkının başına korkunç felaketler getirdi.

18 Firavun Avramı çağırtarak, ‹‹Nedir bana bu yaptığın?›› dedi, ‹‹Neden Sarayın karın olduğunu söylemedin?

19 Niçin ‹Saray kızkardeşimdir› diyerek onunla evlenmeme izin verdin? Al karını, git!››

20 Firavun Avram için adamlarına buyruk verdi. Böylece Avram'la karısını sahip olduğu her şeyle birlikte gönderdiler.

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.
