1 Ja Issand ütles Aabramile: 'Mine omalt maalt, omast sugukonnast ja isakojast maale, mille ma sulle näitan!

2 Ma teen sind suureks rahvaks ja õnnistan sind, ma teen su nime suureks, et sa oleksid õnnistuseks!

3 Siis ma õnnistan neid, kes sind õnnistavad, panen vande alla selle, kes sind neab, ja sinu nimel õnnistavad endid kõik suguvõsad maa peal!'

4 Ja Aabram läks, nagu Issand teda käskis, ja Lott läks koos temaga; Aabram oli seitsekümmend viis aastat vana, kui ta Haaranist lahkus.

5 Ja Aabram võttis oma naise Saarai ja oma vennapoja Loti ja kogu nende varanduse, mis nad olid soetanud, ja Haaranis hangitud hingelised, ja nad läksid teele Kaananimaa poole. Ja nad jõudsid Kaananimaale.

6 Ja Aabram käis maa läbi Sekemi püha paigani, Moore tammeni; kaananlased olid siis veel sellel maal.

7 Ja Issand ilmutas ennast Aabramile ning ütles: 'Sinu soole ma annan selle maa!' Siis ta ehitas sinna altari Issandale, kes oli ennast temale ilmutanud.

8 Sealt ta liikus edasi mäestikku Peetelist hommiku poole ja lõi oma telgi üles, nõnda et Peetel jäi õhtu ja Ai hommiku poole; ja ta ehitas sinna altari Issandale ning hüüdis appi Issanda nime.

9 Ja Aabram läks teele, rändas üha ja siirdus Lõunamaale.

10 Aga maal oli nälg. Siis Aabram läks alla Egiptusesse, et seal võõrana elada, sest maal oli suur nälg.

11 Ja kui ta minnes Egiptusele ligines, ütles ta oma naisele Saaraile: 'Vaata, ma tean, et sa oled ilusa välimusega naine.

12 Aga kui egiptlased sind näevad, ütlevad nad: 'See on tema naine!' Siis nad tapavad minu, aga sinu jätavad elama.

13 Ütle siis, et oled minu õde, et mu käsi sinu tõttu võiks hästi käia ja mu hing sinu pärast ellu jääks!'

14 Kui Aabram jõudis Egiptusesse, siis nägid egiptlased, et naine oli väga ilus.

15 Ja kui vaarao vürstid teda nägid, siis nad ülistasid teda vaaraole ja naine võeti vaarao kotta.

16 Vaarao tegi Aabramile tema pärast head: ta sai lambaid ja kitsi, veiseid ja eesleid, sulaseid ja teenijaid, emaeesleid ja kaameleid.

17 Aga Issand nuhtles vaaraod ja tema koda suurte nuhtlustega Saarai, Aabrami naise pärast.

18 Siis vaarao kutsus Aabrami ning ütles: 'Miks sa mulle seda tegid? Miks sa ei teatanud mulle, et ta on sinu naine?

19 Miks sa ütlesid: Ta on mu õde, nõnda et ma tema enesele naiseks võtsin? Aga nüüd, vaata, seal on su naine, võta tema ja mine!'

20 Ja vaarao andis tema pärast meestele käsu, et nad saadaksid minema tema ja ta naise ja kõik, mis tal oli.

Exploring the Meaning of Genesis 12      

By 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.

1436. 'And [every] soul which they had gained in Haran' means every essential with life in it that was possible in that obscure state. This is clear from the meaning of 'soul' as an essential that has life in it, and from the meaning of 'Haran' as an obscure state, dealt with in the previous verse. 'Soul' in the proper sense means that with man which possesses life, and so his life itself. That in man which has life in it is not the body but the soul, and it is through the soul that the body receives life. The life itself in man, that is, that which has life, is derived from heavenly love; nothing with life in it is possible if that love is not the source of it. This explains why 'soul' here means the good which derives its life from heavenly love, this good being the fundamental essential that has life in it. In the literal sense 'soul' is used here to mean every human being, and also all the livestock, and which they had acquired to themselves; but in the internal sense nothing else is meant than [every] essential with life in it.
