1 亞伯蘭蒙神呼召耶和華亞伯蘭:“你要離開本地、本族、父家,到我指示你的地方去。

2 我必使你成為國,賜福給你,使你的名為,你也必使別人得福,

3 給你祝福的,我必賜福給他;咒詛你的,我必咒詛他;地上的萬族,都必因你得福。”

4 亞伯蘭就照著耶和華吩咐他的去了;羅得也和他同去。

5 亞伯蘭離開哈蘭的時候,已經七十五歲。亞伯蘭著他的妻子撒萊和姪兒羅得以及他們在哈蘭所積蓄的一切財物,和所獲得的人口,一同出,要到迦南地去。後他們到了迦南地。

6 亞伯蘭穿過那地,到了示劍的地方,摩利的橡樹那裡。當時,迦南人住在那地。

7 耶和華亞伯蘭顯現,:“我要把這地賜你的後裔。”亞伯蘭就在那裡為向他顯現的耶和華築了一座祭壇

8 後來他從那裡遷到伯特利東邊的地,搭起帳棚。西邊是伯特利,東邊是艾城;他在那裡也為耶和華築了一座祭壇,呼求耶和華的名。

9 亞伯蘭又起程,漸漸移到地去。

10 亞伯蘭埃及當時,那地發生饑荒,亞伯蘭埃及去,要在那裡寄居;因為那地的饑荒十分嚴重。

11 快要到達埃及的時候,亞伯蘭對他的妻子撒萊:“看哪,我知道你是個美貌的女人

12 埃及人見你的時候,必會:‘這是他的妻子’,他們就會我,卻叫你活著。

13 請你你是我的妹妹,使我因你的緣故可以平安無事,我的性命也可以因你的緣故得以保全。”

14 果然,亞伯蘭進入埃及的時候,埃及人就注視那女人,因為她十分美麗。

15 法老的一些大臣見了撒萊,就在法老面前稱讚她;於是那女人被帶進法老的宮裡去。

16 亞伯蘭因這女人的緣故就被優待,得了許多牛、公、母、僕婢和駱駝

17 耶和華因為亞伯蘭的妻子撒萊的緣故,就用嚴重的災病打擊法老和他的全家。

18 於是,法老亞伯蘭召了來,對他:“你向我作的是甚麼?你為甚麼不告訴我她是你的妻子呢?

19 你為甚麼她是你的妹妹,以致我娶了她作妻子呢?現在,你的妻子在這裡,帶她走吧!”

20 法老吩咐臣僕,他們就把亞伯蘭和他的妻子,以及他所有的一切都送走了。

Exploring the Meaning of Genesis 12      

Napsal(a) 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.

Exploring the Meaning of Judges 6      

Napsal(a) Rev. Julian Duckworth

Judges 6: The Midianites oppress Israel; the call of Gideon.

Chapters 6-8 of Judges tell the story of Gideon, who led the people of Israel against the Midianites. The Lord allowed the Midianites to oppress the children of Israel for seven years, because they had disobeyed His commandments once again. Israel fled to the mountain caves, and Midian starved the Israelites by destroying their crops and taking their livestock. When Israel cried out to the Lord for help, a prophet delivered the Lord’s message that He had always been with them, but they had kept disobeying.

Then the angel of the Lord appeared to Gideon, who was threshing wheat in the winepress to hide this from the Midianites. The angel brought news that he would lead the fight against the Midianites. Gideon was stunned, and replied that his family was the least important in the tribe of Manasseh, and that he was the least in his family. Even so, the Lord assured him would be victorious, because the Lord was with him.

Gideon asked for a sign to be given him, and then went to prepare an offering of food. When he came back, the angel told him to place the meat and unleavened bread upon a rock. When the angel touched it with his staff, fire came up from the rock and burned up the food. The angel then departed.

The Lord told Gideon to break down his father’s altars to Baal, and to build an altar to the Lord on top of it, which he did by night. In the morning, the men of the city discovered what Gideon had done, and demanded that he be killed. But Gideon’s father, Joash, replied that Baal himself would take action, if he were really a god.

The Midianites and their allies gathered for battle, and Gideon called on his tribe of Manasseh, as well as Asher, Zebulun, and Naphtali, to prepare to fight. Before the battle took place though, Gideon asked for another sign from God. He put a woolen fleece on the threshing floor, and if God would use him to save Israel, the fleece would have dew on it, while the ground around it would be dry. And so it was the next morning. Once again, Gideon asked for a sign, this time with dew on the ground, but not on the fleece. And again, this came to pass.

*****

The spiritual meaning of the Midianites is understanding spiritual truths, but leading a life of sensory pleasure anyway, rather than one built on genuine goodness (see Swedenborg’s work, Arcana Caelestia 7602). This is portrayed by the Midianites destroying all the crops which could be made into food, or spiritually, into what is good.

Threshing wheat and pressing wine are very similar processes; threshing wheat frees grain from the beaten husk, and pressing wine squeezes juice from a crushed grape. Both of these activities represent our spiritual determination to do what is good – the wheat for bread – because of the truth we have come to understand – the wine. Gideon’s name, meaning “to break apart”, and this passage are meant to show us that his strongest quality was determination to do good (Divine Providence 227[2]).

Gideon’s claim to be the least important of all demonstrates the place of genuine humility in our spiritual life. Acknowledging that the Lord brings about all good things is a sign of strength, not weakness (see Swedenborg’s work, Heaven and Hell 408).

The spiritual meaning of asking God for a sign – which Gideon did several times – is to confirm the validity of what we intend or understand. Paying attention to our internal state will show us the quality of our inner thoughts if we dare to listen, but ultimately, confirmation comes from the Word (see Swedenborg’s work, True Christian Religion 508[5]). The fire from the rock, which burned the meat, represents the power of love and truth to consume and sustain us.

The fascinating double sign involving the fleece has several layers of spiritual meaning: the threshing floor stands for the ground of our daily life and activity; the fleece, with its warmth and softness, stands for the principle of goodness; and the dew (water) stands for divine influx of truth into us from the Lord. These build the framework of the spiritual meaning. The dewy fleece on the dry ground means that we need to have the Lord’s truth in our mind, so we know how to lead a good life. Then, this needs to be reversed so that we feel the desire to do good, and then apply this in daily life (Arcana Caelestia 3579).

This sign is closely related to the spiritual meaning of the Midianites, the enemy to be overthrown. Simply knowing the Lord’s truths does not guarantee a good life; we must put these truths into practice.
