1 Ja koko maailmalla oli yhtäläinen kieli ja yhtäläinen puheenparsi.

2 Ja koska he matkustivat idästä, löysivät he kedon Sinearin maalla, ja asuivat siellä.

3 Ja sanoivat keskenänsä: käykäämme tiilejä tekemään ja polttamaan. Ja heillä olivat tiilit kivein siassa, ja maan pihka siteeksi.

4 Ja sanoivat: käykäämme, rakentakaamme meillemme kaupunki ja torni, joka taivaaseen ulottuisi, tehdäksemme meillemme nimeä; ettei meitä hajoitettaisi kaikkiin maihin.

5 Silloin Herra astui alas katsomaan kaupunkia ja tornia, jota ihmisten lapset rakensivat.

6 Ja Herra sanoi: katso, se on yhtäläinen kansa, ja yhtäläinen kieli on kaikkein heidän seassansa, ja he ovat ruvenneet tätä tekemään: ja nyt ei heitä taideta estettää mistään, kuin he ovat aikoneet tehdä.

7 Käykäämme, astukaamme alas ja sekoittakaamme siellä heidän kielensä; niin ettei kenkään ymmärtäisi toisensa kieltä.

8 Ja niin Herra hajoitti heidät sieltä kaikkiin maihin; ja he lakkasivat sitä kaupunkia rakentamasta.

9 Ja sentähden kutsuttiin hänen nimensä Babel: sillä siellä Herra sekoitti koko maan kielen: ja Herra hajoitti heidät sieltä kaikkiin maihin.

10 Nämät ovat Semin sukukunnat: Sem oli sadan ajastajan vanha, ja siitti Arphaksadin, kaksi ajastaikaa vedenpaisumisen jälkeen.

11 Ja eli sitte viisisataa ajastaikaa, ja siitti poikia ja tyttäriä.

12 Arphaksad oli viidenneljättäkymmentä ajastajan vanha, ja siitti Salan.

13 Ja eli sitte neljäsataa ja kolme ajastaikaa, ja siitti poikia ja tyttäriä.

14 Sala oli kolmenkymmenen ajastajan vanha, ja siitti Eberin.

15 Ja eli sitte neljäsataa ja kolme ajastaikaa, ja siitti poikia ja tyttäriä.

16 Eber oli neljänneljättäkymmentä ajastajan vanha, ja siitti Pelegin.

17 Ja eli sitte neljäsataa ja kolmekymmentä ajastaikaa, ja siitti poikia ja tyttäriä.

18 Peleg oli kolmenkymmenen ajastajan vanha, ja siitti Regun.

19 Ja eli sitte kaksisataa ja yhdeksän ajastaikaa, ja siitti poikia ja tyttäriä.

20 Regu oli kahdenneljättäkymmentä ajastajan vanha, ja siitti Serugin.

21 Ja eli sitte kaksisataa ja seitsemän ajastaikaa, ja siitti poikia ja tyttäriä.

22 Serug oli kolmenkymmenen ajastajan vanha ja siitti Nahorin.

23 Ja eli sitte kaksisataa ajastaikaa, ja siitti poikia ja tyttäriä.

24 Nahor oli yhdeksänkolmattakymmentä ajastajan vanha, ja siitti Taran.

25 Ja eli sitte sata ja yhdeksäntoistakymmentä ajastaikaa, ja siitti poikia ja tyttäriä.

26 Tara oli seitsemänkymmenen ajastajan vanha, ja siitti Abramin, Nahorin ja Haranin.

27 Nämät ovat Taran sukukunnat: Tara siitti Abramin, Nahorin ja Haranin. Haran siitti Lotin.

28 Ja Haran kuoli isänsä, Taran edessä, isänsä maalla Kaldean Uurissa.

29 Silloin Abram ja Nahor ottivat heillensä emännät: Abramin emännän nimi oli Sarai, ja Nahorin emännän nimi oli Milka, Haranin tytär, joka oli Milkan ja Jiskan isä.

30 Mutta Sarai oli hedelmätöin, eikä ollut hänellä lasta.

31 Ja Tara otti poikansa Abramin ja Lotin Haranin pojan, poikansa pojan, ja miniänsä Sarain, poikansa Abramin emännän, ja he läksivät ulos ynnä Kaldean Uurista menemään Kanaanin maalle, ja tulivat Haraniin, ja asuivat siellä.

32 Ja Tara oli kahdensadan ja viiden ajastajan vanha ja kuoli Haranissa.

54. What is meant by Babylon and what it is like. Babylon means all who wish to have power over others by means of religious belief. This is gaining control over people's souls, and so over their spiritual life itself, using as means the Divine elements in their religion. All those who aim at power using religion as a means are called collectively Babylon. The reason why the name of Babylon is applied to them is that in ancient times such control began, but was destroyed as soon as it started. Its beginning is described by the city and tower which had its top in heaven; its destruction by the confusion of speech; hence its name was Babel (Genesis 11:1-9). The meaning of these details in the internal or spiritual sense of the Word may be seen explained in ARCANA COELESTIA 1283-1328.

(Odkazy: Isaiah 14:12-13, 14:14-15)


[2] Another such attempt at control was begun and set up in Babel, as is clear from the passage of Daniel which tells of Nebuchadnezzar setting up an image which all were to worship (Daniel 3). It is also meant by Belshazzar drinking with his nobles from the gold and silver vessels which Nebuchadnezzar had carried off from the temple at Jerusalem; and at the same time worshipping gods of gold, silver, copper and iron. Therefore it was written on the wall, He has numbered, weighed and divided. And the king was killed that same night (Daniel 5). The vessels of gold and silver from the temple at Jerusalem mean the kinds of good and truth possessed by the church; drinking from them, and at the same time worshipping gods of gold, silver, copper and iron means profaning them. The writing on the wall and the king's death mean visitation and destruction with which those were threatened who used Divine forms of good and truth as means.

(Odkazy: Daniel 4:1-3)


[3] There are numerous descriptions in the Prophets of what the people called Babylon are like, as in Isaiah:

You are to bring out this parable about the king of Babylon. Jehovah has broken the rod of the irreligious, the sceptre of the rulers. You, Lucifer, have fallen from heaven, you are cut down right to the ground. You said in your mind, I will climb the heavens, above the stars of God I shall set my throne on high, and I shall sit on the mountain of meeting, on the north side; I shall become like the Most High. Yet will you be brought down to hell, beside the pit. I will cut off the name of Babylon and what is left of her, and make her a possession inherited by the vulture. 1 Isaiah 14:4-5, 12-15, 22-23.

Elsewhere in the same book:

The lion said, Fallen, fallen is Babylon and cast down are all the graven images of her gods. Isaiah 21:9.

See further in Isaiah chapter Isaiah 47, chapter Isaiah 48:14-20; and in Jeremiah chapter Jeremiah 50:1-3. This makes it plain what Babylon is.

(Odkazy: Isaiah 21:8-9)


[4] It needs to be known that a church becomes Babylon when charity and faith cease to exist and self-love begins to reign in their stead. This love rushes as fast as it is given its head, not only to exercise control over all on earth it can make its subjects, but even over heaven. Nor does it rest there; it climbs as far as the throne of God and takes His Divine power for itself. The passages quoted from the Word prove that this also happened before the Lord's coming. But that Babylon was destroyed by the Lord when He was in the world, both by their becoming utter idolaters and by the last judgment upon them at that time in the spiritual world. This is meant by the passages in the Prophets about Lucifer, who is there Babylon, being cast down to hell, and the fall of Babylon; and also by the writing on the wall and by the death of Belshazzar; and by the stone hewn from the rock which destroyed the statue in Nebuchadnezzar's dream [Daniel 2:33-34].
