1 耶和华摩西:你进去见法老。我使他和他臣仆的刚硬,为要在他们中间显我这些神迹,

2 并要叫你将我向埃及人所做的事,和在他们中间所行的神迹,传於你儿子和你孙子的耳中,好叫你们知道我是耶和华

3 摩西亚伦就进去见法老,对他耶和华希伯来人这样:你在我面前不肯自卑要到几时呢?容我的百姓去,好事奉我。

4 你若不肯容我的百姓去,明天我要使蝗虫进入你的境内,

5 遮满地面,甚不见地,并且冰雹所剩的和田间所长的一切树木

6 你的宫殿和你众臣仆的房屋,并一切埃及人房屋,都要被蝗虫占满了;自从你祖宗和你祖宗的祖宗在世以来,直到今日,没有见过这样的灾。摩西就转身离开法老出去。

7 法老的臣仆对法老:这人为我们的网罗要到几时呢?容这些人去事奉耶和华─他们的罢!埃及已经败坏了,你还不知道麽?

8 於是摩西亚伦被召回来法老法老对他们:你们去事奉耶和华─你们的;但那要去的是谁呢?

9 摩西:我们要和我们老的少的、儿子女儿同去,且把羊群牛群一同带去,因为我们务要向耶和华守节。

10 法老对他们:我容你们和你们妇人孩子去的时候,耶和华与你们同在罢!你们要谨慎;因为有祸在你们眼前(或作:你们存着恶意),

11 不可都去!你们这壮年人去事奉耶和华罢,因为这是你们所求的。於是把他们从法老面前撵出去。

12 耶和华摩西:你向埃及地伸杖,使蝗虫埃及地上来,地上一切的菜蔬,就是冰雹所剩的。

13 摩西就向埃及地伸杖,那一昼一夜,耶和华使东刮在埃及地上;到了早晨,东蝗虫刮了来。

14 蝗虫上来,落在埃及的四境,甚是厉害;以前没有这样的,以也必没有。

15 因为这蝗虫遮满地面,甚至地都黑暗了,又地上一切的菜蔬和冰雹上的果子。埃及遍地,无论是树木,是田间的菜蔬,连一点青的也没有留下。

16 於是法老急忙召了摩西亚伦来,:我得罪耶和华─你们的,又得罪了你们。

17 现在求你,只这一次,饶恕我的,求耶和华─你们的使我脱离这一次的死亡。

18 摩西就离开法老去求耶和华

19 耶和华了极大的西,把蝗虫刮起,吹入红;在埃及的四境连个也没有留下。

20 耶和华使法老的刚硬,不容以色列人去。

21 耶和华摩西:你向伸杖,使埃及黑暗;这黑暗似乎摸得着。

22 摩西伸杖,埃及遍地就乌黑了

23 之久,不能相见,谁也不敢起来离开本处;惟有以色列人家中都有亮

24 法老就召摩西来,:你们去事奉耶和华;只是你们的羊群牛群要留下;你们的妇人孩子可以和你们同去。

25 摩西:你总要把祭物和燔祭牲交我们,使我们可以祭祀耶和华我们

26 我们的牲畜也要去,连一也不留下;因为我们要从其中取出,事奉耶和华我们我们未到那里,还不知道用甚麽事奉耶和华

27 耶和华使法老的刚硬,不肯容他们去。

28 法老对摩西:你离开我去罢,你要小心,不要再见我的面!因为你见我面的那日你就必

29 摩西:你得好!我必不再见你的面了。

主是爱本身,以智慧本身的形式表达。爱是他的本质,也是他的全部。智慧-对如何将爱付诸行动的热爱理解-稍微有点外在,为爱提供了一种表达自我的方式。 当圣经说“耶和华”时,它代表的是至高无上的爱,这是主的本质。那爱本身就是一个完整的整体,而爱也是一个,只适用于主的名字。然而,智慧表达在各种各样的思想和观念中,这些著作统称为神的真理。也有许多虚构的神,有时天使和人也可以被称为神(耶和华说摩西将成为亚伦的神)。因此,当圣经称上帝为“上帝”时,多数情况下是指神圣的真理。 在其他情况下,“上帝”指的是所谓的神圣人类。情况是这样的: 作为人类,我们不能直接将主作为上帝的爱来参与。它太强大了,太纯净了。相反,我们必须通过神圣的真理了解他来接近他。因此,神圣的真理是人类形式的主,这是我们可以接近和理解的形式。因此,“上帝”也被用来指代人类这一方面,因为它是真理的表达。

按照瑞典博格的说法,时间和空间不存在于精神现实中,它们是纯粹的自然事物,只存在于物质层面。这就意味着,一个精神性的东西不可能在时间上的另一个精神性的东西 "之后 "发生,因为没有时间。而一个精神性的东西也不可能在空间上 "追随 "另一个精神性的东西,因为没有空间。 相反,灵性的现实是建立在灵性状态的基础上,或天使的爱和思想。这些爱和思想以因果链的方式连接在一起,天使们的体验就像我们体验时间一样;一个思想在精神层面上流向另一个思想,而天使们感觉到这种进步,就像我们感觉到一个时刻流向另一个时刻的进步一样。当天使有类似的思想和感觉时,他们体验到的亲近感和我们对肉体亲近感的体验是非常相同的;他们对 "空间 "的概念是整个精神世界中的灵魂所拥有的思想和情感的变化。 当《圣经》将某件事情描述为 "后边 "的东西时,那么,属灵的意义就与属灵状态的递进有关;它是在前边的东西基础上产生的新的属灵状态。由于较高的状态会流入较低的状态,所以 "之后 "的东西往往是较低的、较外在的状态。例如,内心深处对他人的善的渴望,会自动地流向具体的想法,即我们可以做的具体的善事。那么,这些具体的想法,就会 "在 "善的欲望之后。

"空气 "在《圣经》中代表了思想,但以一种非常笼统的方式--更像是我们感知思想的能力和我们倾向于思考的方式,而不是我们对具体事物的具体想法。 仔细想想,这也是有道理的。我们通过空气看到周围的世界,看到对应于理解。我们通过空气听到,而听觉对应着被教化和服从。鸟儿在空中飞翔,它们代表着具体的思想和观念。而呼吸本身--吸进空气,将氧气传递到血液中--代表着我们对真正的精神理念的理解。

黑暗
“黑暗”是没有光的状态。 “光”是来自主的真理,因此“黑暗”代表了缺乏真理的状态。 这是来自Arcana Coelestia的令人信服的文章: “尚未再生的人被称为'虚无而空的地球',也被称为'地面',其中根本没有播种任何善良或真理-'void'在没有善良的情况下,'empty' “那里没有真理。因此,存在着“深沉的黑暗”,愚蠢和缺乏对与对主的信仰以及与灵性和天体生活有关的任何事物的知识。 (天国的秘密17)...

Two gorgeous red poppies -- one popped, and one just about to.

Morning comes with the rising of the sun, and the sun – which gives life to the earth with its warmth and light – represents the Lord in His divinity, bringing spiritual life through love and wisdom. So the morning represents the coming of the Lord into our lives, and all the things that flow from it: the love, joy and enlightenment He brings; the peace and tranquility of passing the spiritual obscurity of another night; the anticipation of the learning and usefulness of another day; and the awareness of The Lord’s renewed presence.

Explanation of Isaiah 38      

Napsal(a) Rev. John H. Smithson

THE EXPLANATION of Isaiah Chapter 38

(Note: Rev. Smithson's translation of the Isaiah text is appended below the explanation)

1. In those days was Hezekiah sick unto death. And Isaiah the prophet, the son of Amoz, came unto him, and said unto him, Thus says Jehovah, Give charge concerning your house; for you art dying, and shalt not live.

VERSE 1. As to "sickness" and "disease", see Chapter 1:6, 7, the Exposition.

Unto death. - By "death" and by the "dead" are signified those who are in evils and thence in falsities. Apocalypse Explained 899.

They who either pervert, or extinguish, or reject in themselves the Good which is of Love and the Truth which is of Faith, have not life in themselves; for life, which is from the Divine, consists in willing what is Good and in believing what is True. But they who do not will what is Good, but what is evil, or believe not what is True, but what is false, have a principle contrary to life; this principle. contrary to life is hell, and is called "death", and persons of this description are called "dead." That the life of Love and of Faith is called " life", and - likewise "eternal life", and that they who have it in themselves are called "living men"; and that what is contrary to life is called "death", - and likewise" death eternal", and that persons of this description are called "dead men", is manifest from many passages in the Word, and amongst others from John 8:21, 24, 51. Arcana Coelestia 7494.

You art dying. - [To denote that the Israelitish church was approaching to its end, or to its consummation.]

2. Then Hezekiah turned his face to the wall, and prayed to Jehovah.

Verse 2. [It does not appear that Swedenborg has quoted this verse, but the spiritual signification, we submit, is the following: In the literal sense, by "turning the face to the wall in prayer", is implied retirement to "pray in secret", and undisturbed by those in the same apartment. But in the spiritual sense, according to correspondences, we apprehend that the idea involved in "turning the face to the wall" is to pray from the letter of the Word, and with "the face turned to it" signifies with the interiors of the mind imbued with its spirit and its life; for the "wall", both of the king's house, of the temple, and of Jerusalem, signifies the literal sense of the Word. (Arcana Coelestia 811, 1307, 1311)

All prayer, to be effective, should be full of "the life and spirit" of the Word, and expressed, as much as possible, in the language or literal sense of the Word; for the literal sense, being divine, has power to open heaven even unto the Lord Himself which is signified by Jehovah's saying "I have heard your prayer", etc. verse 5.]

3. And he said, I beseech You, O Jehovah, remember how I have walked before You in truth, and with a perfect heart; and have done that which is good in Thine eyes. And Hezekiah wept exceedingly.

Verses 3, 5. Hezekiah wept exceedingly, - I have seen your tears.

- As to "weeping" and "tears", see Chapter 25:8, the Exposition.

4. Wherefore the word of Jehovah came unto Isaiah, saying,

Verse 4. That the prophets were in one state when in vision, and in another state when they revealed the Word of Jehovah, see Chapter 1:1, the Exposition.

5. Go, and say unto Hezekiah, Thus says Jehovah, the God of David your father, I have heard your prayer; I have seen your tears: behold, I will add unto your days fifteen years.

Verse 5. I have heard your prayer.

- As to "prayers" and "worship", see Chapter 18:7, also Chapter 1:11-19, the Exposition.

6. And I will deliver you and this city from the hand of the king of Assyria; and I will defend this city.

Verse 6. That to "deliver out of the hand of the king of Assyria", is to deliver the members of the church from the influence and bondage of negative and false reasonings respecting the Truths of the Word, see Chapter 10:5, 7, 8, 24, 26; 30:31, 32; 36:1, the Exposition.

7. And this shall be the sign unto you from Jehovah, that Jehovah will do this word which He has spoken:

8. Behold, I will bring back the shadow of the degrees, by which the sun is gone down on the sun-dial of Ahaz, ten degrees backward. And the sun returned ten degrees, on the degrees [or sun-dial] by which it had gone down,

9. The writing of Hezekiah, the king of Judah, when he had been sick, and had recovered from his sickness:

Verses 7, 8. This sign was given to king Hezekiah for a testification that the Lord would "defend him and Jerusalem from the king of Assyria", as it is said in verse 6 of this chapter, by which "king" was signified the rational principle perverted, destroying all things of the church; wherefore by this "sign", in like manner, was represented the New Church, which was to be established by the Lord; but, in this case, that the time which was told to Ahaz, just above, should be further protracted. By "the retraction of the shadow which was gone down on the degrees of Ahaz", is signified the protraction of the time before it should take place. "The degrees [of the sun-dial] of Ahaz " signify the time until the advent of the Lord, and the shadow" denotes the progression of time from the rising to the setting: by its being "drawn backward ten degrees", is signified the prolongation of the time as yet by several years, for "ten" signify several or more; and by the "sun" which should go back, is signified the advent of the Lord. But this is to be further illustrated. The advent of the Lord took place when the Jewish church was at an end, that is, when there was not any Good and Truth therein remaining; this is understood by "when iniquity was consummated", and also by "the fulness of time" in which the Lord was to come. The entire time of the duration of the Jewish church was represented by "the degrees [on the sun-dial] of Ahaz"; the beginning thereof by the "first degree", which is when the sun is in its rising, and the end thereof by the "last degree" in the setting. Hence it is evident that by the "retraction" of the shade, from the setting towards the rising, is understood the prolongation of that time. The reason why this came to pass on "the degrees [of the sun-dial] of Ahaz", was, because Ahaz was a wicked king, and had profaned the holy things of the church, wherefore, if his successors had done in like manner, the end of the church would have been brought on shortly; but as Hezekiah was an upright king, the time was prolonged, for thereby the iniquity of that nation did not so soon arrive at its consummation, that is, at its end. Apocalypse Explained 706.

10. I said, when my days were about to be cut off, I am going to the gates of hell; I am numbered as to the residue of my years!

Verse 10. These are the words of Hezekiah the king, when he was sick; and by "numbered." is signified explored and concluded. That to "number" and be "numbered" have a different signification, in the spiritual sense of the Word, to that which appears in the letter, or the natural sense, may also appear from this circumstance, that with the angels of heaven numbers and measures have no place in their spiritual ideas, that is, they cannot think from numeration or mensuration, but from the quality of a thing, which thought of theirs falls into numbers and measures when it descends thence into a natural sphere; and yet the Word is written for angels as well as for man. Wherefore the angels, by "numbers" and by "numbering" in the Word, perceive the quality of the thing treated of, whilst men understand numbers and numbering. This may still further appear from this consideration, that every "number" in the Word signifies somewhat of thing or state. Apocalypse Explained 453. See also Apocalypse Revealed 364, and as to "numbering", Chapter 22:9, 10, the Exposition.

11. I said, I shall not see Jah, - Jah in the land of the living! I shall no longer behold man with the inhabitants of the world!

12. My age is departed, and is removed from me like a shepherd's tent: I have cut off, like a weaver, my life: He will cut me off from the loom: from day even unto night will You consume me.

Verse 11. Inasmuch as the "land" signifies the church, and where the "earth" or "land" is, there is heaven, it is therefore called "the earth or land of the living", and "the earth or land of life", as in the above words, and also in Ezekiel:

"Who caused terror in the land of the living", etc., (Ezekiel 32:23-27)

It is also called "the land of life" in David:

"Unless I had believed to see good in the land of life." (Psalm 27:13) Apocalypse Explained 304.

As to the meaning of "Jah", in relation to Jehovah or the Lord, see Chapter 12:2, the Exposition.

13. I quieted myself until morning; as a lion did He break all my bones: from day even unto night will You consume me.

Verse 13. To "break the bones" is to destroy Truths from the Divine, which are the ultimates in order, upon which interior goods and truths rest, and by which they are supported; which ultimates, if destroyed, all things built upon them fall to the ground. Ultimate truths in order are the truths of the literal sense of the Word, in which are the truths of the internal sense, upon which they are supported as columns upon their bases. Arcana Coelestia 9163.

14. Like the crane, or the swallow, did I twitter; I moaned like the dove: mine eyes failed [with looking] upward. O Jehovah, I am oppressed; be You surety for me.

Verse 14. [These words, which depict a state of distress and alarm, signify temptations, and especially as to the intellectual life signified by the "crane", the "swallow", and the "dove" distress. The "swallow" corresponds to natural Truth, (Apocalypse Explained 391) or to Truth from the Word in the natural mind; the "crane" corresponds, we apprehend, to Truth in the spiritual, and the "dove" to Truth in the celestial degree. Thus the entire mind, as to its intellectual life, is described as to temptations, when Good from the Lord is being united to Truth in the life, which is regeneration. Whilst in these states of oppression and temptation, the Lord is our only "surety", safety, and comfort.]

15. What shall I say? he has both spoken unto me, and He Himself has done it: I will go humbly all my years on account of the bitterness of my soul.

16. O Lord, by these [Your words] men live, and in all these is the life of my spirit: so will You recover me, and make me to live.

Verse 15. The "soul" here signifies the life of man's spirit, which is called his spiritual life. Apocalypse Explained 750. [See also in the same number the seven different significations which the term "soul" (anima) has in the Word.]

17. Behold, instead of peace there was bitterness to me, [yea] bitterness: You have, in love, delivered my soul from the pit of, destruction; for You have cast behind Your back all my sins.

Verse 17. You have cast behind Your back all my sins.

- [When sins are removed by repentance, they are, as it were, "cast behind the Lord's back", that is, not seen by Him: but when not repented of, and thereby removed, they are said to be "before Him, and in the light of His countenance." (Psalm 90:8). See True Christian Religion 510, 611-614.]

18. For hell cannot praise You; death cannot celebrate You; they that go down into the pit shall not hope in Your truth:

Verses 18, 19. From this passage it may appear what is signified by the "dead", namely, they who have not in themselves the the life of heaven, consequently, who are in evils, and thence in falsities. That in this passage "death" denotes damnation, and "life" salvation, is manifest. Forasmuch as "death" is damnation, it is also hell; wherefore hell, in the Word, is commonly called "death", as in the above words. Apocalypse Explained 186.

19. The living, the living, he shall praise You, as I do this day: the father to the sons shall make known Your truth.

Verse 19. Jehovah, in the Word of the Old Testament, calls Himself "THE ALIVE" and "THE LIVInG" because He alone lives; for He is Love itself and Wisdom itself, and these are Life. That there is but one only Life, which is God, and that angels and men are recipients of life from Him, has been shown by many things in the work entitled "Angelic Wisdom concerning the Divine Love and the Divine Wisdom." Jehovah calls Himself "THE ALIVE" and "THE LIVInG" in Isaiah 38:18, 19; Jeremiah 5:2; 12:16; 16:14, 15.

The Lord also, as to His Divine Humanity, is Life, because the Father and He are one; wherefore He says,

"As the Father has life in Himself, so has He given to the Son to have life in Himself." (John 5:26)

"Jesus said, I am the Resurrection and the Life." (John 11:25)

"Jesus said, I am the Way, the Truth, and the Life", (John 14:6)

"In the beginning was the Word, and God was the Word; in Him was Life; and the Word became flesh." (John 1:1-4, 14)

Because the Lord alone is Life, it follows that from Him alone is Life, wherefore He says,

"Because I live, you shall live also." (John 14:19) Apocalypse Revealed 58.

20. Jehovah was for my salvation: therefore will we sing my songs to the stringed instruments, all the days of our life, in the house of Jehovah.

Verse 20. "Stringed instruments" are attributed to the spiritual things, and "wind instruments" to the celestial things of faith. Arcana Coelestia 418-420.

21. For Isaiah had said, Let them take a lump of figs, and lay it bruised upon the boil, that he may live.

Verse 21. ["Figs" from correspondence, signify the natural good of man conjoined with the spiritual good, or the good of the natural or external man derived from the good of the spiritual or internal man, and thus from the Lord. It is this good which heals a man of his spiritual diseases and restores him to spiritual health. Hence it was from this spiritual signification of a "lump of figs" that Isaiah said, "Let them lay it bruised upon the boil of Hezekiah, that he may live"; whereas the good of the natural man, separate from the good of the spiritual man, is in itself evil, because it is only good in appearance, assumed by the natural man for the sake of self and of the world. At the period of Judgment this good is dispersed as "the fig falling off from the tree:" (Isaiah 34:4)

See also Jeremiah 8:13, 29:17, where it is said, "I will make them like vile figs, that cannot be eaten, they are so evil; "for there is nothing so vile as good assumed for the purpose of concealing evil and of carrying out its designs. See also Matthew 11:18-21, where "the barren fig-tree" is described, which, at the Lord's rebuke, "withered away", to show that the good of the natural man, separate from the spiritual man, "withers away" at the time of Judgment, and leaves him to his own condemnation. Apocalypse Revealed 334; Apocalypse Explained 403.]

22. Hezekiah also had said, What is the sign that I shall go up to the house of Jehovah ?

Verse 22. As to the meaning of a "sign", and the difference between a "sign" and a "miracle" or wonder, see Chapter 8:18. Exposition. In respect to the "house" or "temple of Jehovah", and its important signification, see Chapter 6:1, the Exposition.

Isaiah Chapter 38

1. In those days was Hezekiah sick unto death. And Isaiah the prophet, the son of Amoz, came unto him, and said unto him, Thus says Jehovah, Give charge concerning your house; for you art dying, and shalt not live.

2. Then Hezekiah turned his face to the wall, and prayed to Jehovah.

3. And he said, I beseech You, O Jehovah, remember how I have walked before You in truth, and with a perfect heart; and have done that which is good in Thine eyes. And Hezekiah wept exceedingly.

4. Wherefore the word of Jehovah came unto Isaiah, saying,

5. Go, and say unto Hezekiah, Thus says Jehovah, the God of David your father, I have heard your prayer; I have seen your tears: behold, I will add unto your days fifteen years.

6. And I will deliver you and this city from the hand of the king of Assyria; and I will defend this city.

7. And this shall be the sign unto you from Jehovah, that Jehovah will do this word which He has spoken:

8. Behold, I will bring back the shadow of the degrees, by which the sun is gone down on the sun-dial of Ahaz, ten degrees backward. And the sun returned ten degrees, on the degrees [or sun-dial] by which it had gone down,

9. The writing of Hezekiah, the king of Judah, when he had been sick, and had recovered from his sickness:

10. I said, when my days were about to be cut off, I am going to the gates of hell; I am numbered as to the residue of my years!

11. I said, I shall not see Jah, - Jah in the land of the living! I shall no longer behold man with the inhabitants of the world!

12. My age is departed, and is removed from me like a shepherd's tent: I have cut off, like a weaver, my life: He will cut me off from the loom: from day even unto night will You consume me.

13. I quieted myself until morning; as a lion did He break all my bones: from day even unto night will You consume me.

14. Like the crane, or the swallow, did I twitter; I moaned like the dove: mine eyes failed [with looking] upward. O Jehovah, I am oppressed; be You surety for me.

15. What shall I say? he has both spoken unto me, and He Himself has done it: I will go humbly all my years on account of the bitterness of my soul.

16: O Lord, by these [Your words] men live, and in all these is the life of my spirit: so will You recover me, and make me to live.

17. Behold, instead of peace there was bitterness to me, [yea] bitterness: You have, in love, delivered my soul from the pit of, destruction; for You have cast behind Your back all my sins.

18. For hell cannot praise You; death cannot celebrate You; they that go down into the pit shall not hope in Your truth:

19. The living, the living, he shall praise You, as I do this day: the father to the sons shall make known Your truth.

20. Jehovah was for my salvation: therefore will we sing my songs to the stringed instruments, all the days of our life, in the house of Jehovah.

21. For Isaiah had said, Let them take a lump of figs, and lay it bruised upon the boil, that he may live.

22. Hezekiah also had said, What is the sign that I shall go up to the house of Jebovah ?
