1 Herrens hånd kom over mig, og han førte mig i ånden ud og satte mig midt i dalen. Den var fuld af Ben;

2 og han førte mig rundt omkring dem, og se, de lå i store Mængder ud over Dalen, og se, de var aldeles tørre.

3 Derpå sagde han til mig: "Menneskesøn! kan disse Ben blive levende?" Jeg svarede: "Herre, HE E, du ved det!"

4 sagde han til mig: Profeter over disse Ben og sig til dem: I tørre Ben, hør HE ENs Ord!

5 siger den Herre HE EN til disse Ben: Se, jeg bringer Ånd i eder, så I bliver levende.

6 Jeg lægger Sener om eder, lader Kød vokse frem på eder, overtrækker eder med Hud og indgiver eder Ånd, så I bliver levende; og I skal kende, at jeg er HE EN.

7 Så profeterede jeg, som mig var pålagt, og der hørtes en Lyd, da jeg profeterede, og se, der hørtes aslen, og Benene nærmede sig hverandre.

8 Og jeg skuede, og se, der kom Sener på dem, Kød voksede frem, og de blev overtrukket med Hud, men der var ingen Ånd i dem.

9 sagde han til mig: Profeter og tal til Ånden, profeter, du Menneskesøn, og sig til dem: Så siger den Herre HE EN: Ånd, kom fra de fre Verdenshjørner og blæs på disse dræbte, at de må blive levende!

10 Da profeterede jeg, som han bød mig, og Ånden kom i dem, og de blev levende og rejste sig på deres Fødder, en såre, såre stor Hær.

11 Derpå sagde han til mig: Menneskesøn! Disse Ben er alt Israels Hus. Se, de siger: "Vore Ben er tørre, vort Håb er svundet, det er ude med os!"

12 Profeter derfor og sig til dem: Så siger den Herre HE EN: Se, jeg åbner eders Grave og fører eder ud af dem, mit Folk, og bringer eder til Israels Land;

13 og I skal kende, at jeg er HE EN, når jeg åbner eders Grave og fører eder ud af dem, mit Folk.

14 Jeg indgiver eder min Ånd, så I bliver levende, og jeg bosætter eder i eders Land; og I skal kende, at jeg er HE EN; jeg har talet, og jeg fuldbyrder det, lyder det fra HE EN.

15 HE ENs Ord kom til mig således:

16 Du, Menneskesøn, tag dig et Stykke Træ og skriv derpå: Juda og hans Medbrødre blandt Israeliterne! Tag så et andet Stykke Træ og skriv derpå: Josef Efraims Træ og hans Medbrødre, alt Israels Hus!

17 Føj dem så sammen til eet Stykke, så de bliver eet i din Hånd.

18 Og når så dine Landsmænd siger til dig: "Vil du ikke sige os, hvad du mener dermed?"

19 sig så til dem: Så siger den Herre HE EN: Se, jeg tager Josefs Træ", som var i Efraims Hånd, og Israels Stammer, hans Medbrødre, og føjer dem til Judas Træ og gør dem til eet Stykke og de skal blive eet i Judas Hånd.

20 Og Træstykkerne, du skrev på, skal være i din Hånd, så de kan se dem.

21 Tal så til dem: Så siger den Herre HE EN: Se, jeg henter Israeliterne fra Folkene, til hvilke de vandrede hen, og samler dem alle Vegne fra og bringer dem til deres Land.

22 Jeg gør dem til eet Folk i Landet på Israels Bjerge; og de skal alle have en og samme Konge og ikke mere være to Folk eller delt i to iger.

23 De skal ikke mere gøre sig urene ved deres Afgudsbilleder og væmmelige Guder eller alle deres Overtrædelser, og jeg vil frelse dem fra alt deres Frafald, hvormed de forsyndede sig, og rense dem, og de skal være mit Folk, og jeg vil være deres Gud.

24 Min Tjener David skal være Konge over dem, og alle skal de have en og samme Hyrde. De skal følge mine Lovbud og holde mine Vedtægter og gøre efter dem.

25 De skal bo i det Land, jeg gav min Tjener Jakob, der hvor deres Fædre boede; de skal bo der til evig Tid, de, deres Børn og Børnebørn; og min Tjener David skal være deres Fyrste evindelig.

26 Jeg slutter en Fredspagt med dem, en evig Pagt skal det være; og jeg gør dem mangfoldige og sætter min Helligdom i deres Midte evindelig;

27 min Bolig skal være over dem; jeg vil være deres Gud, og de skal være mit Folk.

28 Og Folkene skal kende, at jeg er HE EN, som helliger Israel, når min Helligdom bliver i deres Midte evindelig

← Předchozí   Další →

9642. 'The boards for the south side, southwards' means even to the more internal and the inmost parts [of it], where truth dwells in light. This is clear from the meaning of 'the boards of the dwelling-place' as the good supporting heaven, dealt with in 9634; from the meaning of 'the side (or corner)', when the term is used in reference to the four quarters, as the specific state meant by that quarter, dealt with below; and from the meaning of 'the south, southwards' 1 as the more internal and the inmost parts, where truth dwells in light. 'The south' or 'midday' means a state of light, which is a state of intelligence produced by truths, thus also an interior state; for in the heavens the light, and the intelligence and wisdom that accompany the light, increases towards the more internal parts. Further away from those parts truth dwells in shade; and this state of truth is meant by 'the north'. This then is why 'the south side, southwards' means even to the more internal and the inmost parts, where truth dwells in light.

[2] The same things are meant by 'the south' in Isaiah,

I will say to the north, Give up; and to the south, Do not withhold. Bring My sons from afar, and My daughters from the end of the earth. Isaiah 43:6.

This refers to a new Church. 'Saying to the north' means speaking to those who are in darkness or have no knowledge of the truths of faith, who are gentiles outside the Church. 'Saying to the south' means speaking to those who dwell in the light provided by cognitions or knowledge of goodness and truth, who are people within the Church. This explains why the latter are told not to 'withhold' [those sons and daughters], but the former 'to give them up'.

[3] In Ezekiel,

Set your face the way of the south, and drop [your words] towards the south, and prophesy against the forest of the field to the south, and say to the forest of the south, Behold, I am kindling in you a fire, which will devour in you every green tree; and all faces from south to north will be scorched. Set your face towards Jerusalem, and drop [your words] against the sanctuaries, and prophesy against the land of Israel. Ezekiel 20:46-21:2.

'The south' here stands for those who have the light of truth provided by the Word, thus those who belong to the Church, yet who are influenced by falsities which they substantiate from the sense of the letter of the Word wrongly explained. This is why the expressions 'the forest of the field towards the south' and 'the forest of the south' are used. 'A forest' is a state in which factual knowledge is predominant, whereas 'a garden' is one in which truth is predominant. From this it is evident what the meaning is of 'setting one's face the way of the south, and dropping [one's words] towards the south, and prophesying against the forest of the field to the south', and then of 'set your face towards Jerusalem, and drop [your words] against the sanctuaries, and prophesy against the land of Israel'. 'Jerusalem' and 'the land of Israel' mean the Church, and 'the sanctuaries' there things of the Church.

(Odkazy: Ezekiel 20:46-49, Ezekiel 20:46-47, Ezekiel 21:1-5, 21:2)


[4] In Isaiah,

If you bring out for the hungry your soul 2 and satisfy the afflicted soul, your light will rise in the darkness, and your thick darkness will be as at midday. Isaiah 58:10.

'Darkness' and 'thick darkness' stand for lack of knowledge of truth and good, 'light' and 'midday' for an understanding of them. In the same prophet, Give counsel, execute judgement, set your shade like the night in the middle of the day; 3 hide the outcasts, do not reveal the wanderer. Isaiah 16:3.

'In the middle of the day' stands for in the midst of the light of truth. In Jeremiah,

Prepare for 4 battle against the daughter of Zion; arise, and let us go up into the south, 5 for the day goes away, for the shadows of evening are set at an angle. Jeremiah 6:4.

'Going up into the south' stands for going up against the Church, where truth dwells in light from the Word. In Amos,

I will make the sun go down in the south, 5 and I will darken the land in broad daylight. Amos 8:9.

This stands for blotting out all the light of truth which is provided by the Word.

[5] In David,

You will not be afraid of the terror of the night, of the arrow that flies by day, of the pestilence in thick darkness, of death that lays waste at noonday. Psalms 91:5-6.

'The terror of the night' stands for falsities arising from evil that come from hell; 'the arrow that flies by day' stands for falsity which is taught openly; 'death that lays waste at noonday' stands for evil that is openly present in people's lives, and that destroys truth wherever it is able to dwell in its own light from the Word.

[6] And in Isaiah,

The prophecy of the wilderness of the sea. As whirlwinds in the south sweep through, 6 it comes from the wilderness, from a terrible land. Isaiah 21:1.

In Daniel,

The he-goat of the she-goats made himself exceedingly great, and his horn grew exceedingly towards the south, and towards the east, and towards the glorious [land]. And it grew even towards the host of heaven, and cast down to the earth some of the host, and of the stars, and trampled on them. Daniel 8:8-10.

This refers to the state of the future Church. It foretells that the Church will be ruined by teachings about faith separated from the good of charity, 'the he-goat of the she-goats' being this kind of faith, 4169 (end), 4769. 'The horn's growing towards the south' stands for the power of falsity from this faith directed against truths, 'towards the east' for directing it against forms of good, and 'towards the glorious [land]' for directing it against the Church. 'Towards the host of heaven' stands for directing that power against all the forms of good and the truths belonging to heaven, and 'casting down to the earth some of the host, and of the stars' stands for destroying these, and also even the cognitions or knowledge of good and truth, 4697.

[7] The whole of Chapter 11 in the same prophet describes a war between the king of the south and the king of the north. 'The king of the south' means the light of truth derived from the Word, and 'the king of the north' reasoning about truths which is based on factual knowledge. The shifting fortunes which the Church will experience until it ceases to exist are described by the different phases in the course of that war.

[8] Because 'the south' meant truth dwelling in light it was decreed that the tribes of Reuben, Simeon, and Gad should camp towards the south, Numbers 2:10-15. Encampments represented the arrangement of all things in heaven as determined by the truths and forms of the good of faith and love, 4236, 8103 (end), 8193, 8196, and 'the twelve tribes' which formed the camp meant all the truths and forms of good in their entirety, 3858, 3862, 3926, 3939, 4060, 6335, 6337, 6397, 6640, 7836, 7891, 7996, 7997. 'The tribe of Reuben' meant the truth of faith present in doctrine, 3861, 3866, 5542, 'the tribe of Simeon' the truth of faith subsequently present in life, 3869-3872, 4497, 4502, 4503, 5482, and 'the tribe of Gad' works motivated by that truth in doctrine and life, 6404, 6405. From these meanings it is evident why these three camped towards the south; for all things on the side of truth or faith belong in the south because they are in light.

(Odkazy: Arcana Coelestia 4502-4503, 6404-6405, 7996-7997)


[9] From all this it is now clear what 'the south side' means, namely where the state of truth dwelling in light is to be found. For all states of the good of love and the truth of faith are meant by the four corners of the earth, states of the good of love being meant by the east and west sides, and states of the truth of faith by the south and north ones. Much the same is meant by 'the four winds', as in the Book of Revelation,

... angels standing over the four corners of the earth, holding back the four winds of the earth, in order that the wind should not blow onto the earth. Revelation 7:1.

And elsewhere,

Satan will come out to deceive the nations which are at the four corners of the earth. Revelation 20:7-8.

In Matthew,

He will send angels, and gather the elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other. 7 Matthew 24:31.

And in Ezekiel,

Come from the four winds, O spirit, and breathe into these killed, that they may live. Ezekiel 37:9.

(Odkazy: Revelation 20:8)


[10] Because those winds, that is, those four quarters, meant all aspects of good and truth, thus all aspects of heaven and the Church, and 'a temple' meant heaven or the Church, it had been the custom since ancient times to site temples in an east-west direction. This was because the east meant the good of love on the rise, and the west the good of love on the decline. This custom had its origin in representative signs, which were well known to the ancients who belonged to the Church.

-----
Footnotes:

1. Two different words denoting the south are used here. The first (meridies) also means noon or midday and is translated as such in some quotations below. The second (auster) is sometimes used to mean more specifically a south wind.

2. i.e. If you bring food out of store for the hungry

3. or the south

4. literally, Sanctify

5. or at noon

6. literally, for passing through

7. literally, from the bounds of the heavens to the bounds of the heavens
