1 Sitten hän vei minut takaisin temppelin ovelle. Ja katso, vettä kumpusi temppelin kynnyksen alta itään päin, sillä temppelin etusivu oli itää kohti. Ja vesi juoksi alas temppelin oikeanpuolisen sivuseinämän alitse, alttarin eteläpuolitse.

2 Sitten hän toi minut ulos pohjoisportin kautta ja kierrätti minut ulkopuolitse ulkoportille, joka antoi itää kohden; ja katso, vesi virtasi oikeanpuoliselta sivuseinämältä päin.

3 Mennessänsä itää kohti mies, mittanuora kädessään, mittasi tuhat kyynärää ja antoi minun käydä veden poikki: vettä oli nilkkoihin asti.

4 Sitten hän mittasi tuhat ja antoi minun käydä veden poikki: vettä oli polviin asti. Sitten hän mittasi tuhat ja antoi minun käydä poikki: vettä oli lanteisiin asti.

5 Sitten hän mittasi tuhat: tuli virta, jonka poikki minä en voinut käydä, sillä vesi nousi uimavedeksi, virraksi, josta ei voinut käydä poikki.

6 Niin hän kysyi minulta: "Oletko nähnyt, ihmislapsi?" ja kuljetti minua ja toi takaisin pitkin virran rantaa.

7 Mutta kun minä tulin takaisin, niin katso: virran rannalla kasvoi hyvin paljon puita molemmilla puolin.

8 Ja hän sanoi minulle: "Nämä vedet juoksevat itäiselle alueelle, virtaavat alas Aromaahan ja tulevat mereen; niiden jouduttua mereen vesi siinä paranee.

9 Ja kaikki elolliset, kaikki, jotka liikkuvat, virkoavat elämään kaikkialla, mihin tämä kaksoisvirta tulee. Ja kaloja on oleva hyvin paljon; sillä kun nämä vedet sinne tulevat ja vesi paranee, niin kaikki virkoaa elämään, minne vain virta tulee.

10 Ja kalastajia seisoo sen rannalla. Een-Gedistä Een-Eglaimiin asti se on oleva yhtä verkkoapajaa. Siinä on kaikenlaisia kaloja, aivan kuin suuren meren kaloja, hyvin paljon.

11 Sen rämeet ja lätäköt eivät parane: ne jätetään suolan valtaan.

12 Mutta virran varrella, sen molemmilla rannoilla, kasvaa kaikkinaisia hedelmäpuita. Niistä eivät lakastu lehdet eivätkä lopu hedelmät: joka kuukausi ne kantavat tuoreet hedelmät, sillä niitten vedet juoksevat pyhäköstä, ja niitten hedelmät ovat ravitsevaiset ja niitten lehdet parantavaiset.

13 Näin sanoo Herra, Herra: Tämä on raja, jonka mukaan teidän on jaettava maa perintöosiksi kahdelletoista Israelin sukukunnalle-Joosef saakoon kaksi osaa-.

14 Ja te saatte siitä perintöosan jokainen kohdaltansa; sillä minä olen kättä kohottaen luvannut antaa sen teidän isillenne, ja niin tämä maa tulee teille perintöosaksi.

15 Tämä on maan pohjoispuolinen raja: Suuresta merestä Hetlonin tietä siihen asti, mistä mennään Sedadiin.

16 Hamat, Beerota, Sibraim, joka on Damaskon alueen ja Hamatin alueen välissä, keskimmäinen Haaser, joka on Hauranin rajalla;

17 ja näin menee raja merestä Hasar-Eenoniin-Damaskon alue jää pohjoiseen ja pohjoiseen myös Hamatin alue. Tämä on pohjoispuoli.

18 Sitten itäpuoli: Hauranin ja Damaskon välistä sekä Gileadin ja Israelin maan välistä, Jordania pitkin. Mitatkaa se rajasta Idänmereen. Tämä on itäpuoli.

19 Sitten eteläpuoli, päivään päin: Taamarista Meriban veteen, joka on Kaadeksessa, Puroon ja Suureen mereen. Tämä on päivänpuoli, etelään päin.

20 Sitten länsipuoli: Suuri meri rajasta sen paikan kohdalle, mistä mennään Hamatiin. Tämä on länsipuoli.

21 Jakakaa tämä maa keskenänne Israelin sukukuntien mukaan.

22 Ja arpokaa se perintöosiksi itsellenne ja muukalaisille, jotka asuvat teidän keskuudessanne ja ovat synnyttäneet lapsia teidän keskuudessanne. Olkoot he teille saman arvoisia kuin maassa syntyneet israelilaiset: he saakoot arvalla perintöosan Israelin sukukuntain keskuudessa teidän kanssanne.

23 Missä sukukunnassa muukalainen asuu, siinä antakaa hänelle perintöosa, sanoo Herra, Herra."

342. CHAPTER 7

1. After these things I saw four angels standing at the four corners of the earth, holding back the four winds of the earth, that the wind should not blow on the earth, on the sea, or on any tree. 2 Then I saw another angel ascending from the rising of the sun, having the seal of the living God. And he cried with a loud voice to the four angels, to whom it was granted to harm the earth and the sea, 3 saying, "Do not harm the earth, the sea, or the trees till we have sealed the servants of our God on their foreheads."

4. And I heard the number of those who were sealed, one hundred and forty-four thousand, sealed out of every tribe of Israel: 5 of the tribe of Judah twelve thousand were sealed; of the tribe of Reuben twelve thousand were sealed; of the tribe of Gad twelve thousand were sealed; 6 of the tribe of Asher twelve thousand were sealed; of the tribe of Naphtali twelve thousand were sealed; of the tribe of Manasseh twelve thousand were sealed; 7 of the tribe of Simeon twelve thousand were sealed; of the tribe of Levi twelve thousand were sealed; of the tribe of Issachar twelve thousand were sealed; 8 of the tribe of Zebulun twelve thousand were sealed; of the tribe of Joseph twelve thousand were sealed; of the tribe of Benjamin twelve thousand were sealed.

9. After these things I looked, and behold, a great multitude, which no one could number, of all nations, tribes, peoples, and tongues, standing before the throne and before the Lamb, clothed with white robes, with palm branches in their hands, 10 and crying out with a loud voice, saying, "Salvation belongs to our God who sits on the throne, and to the Lamb!" 11 And all the angels stood around the throne, with the elders and the four living creatures, and they fell on their faces before the throne and worshiped God, 12 saying, "Amen! Blessing and glory and wisdom and thanksgiving, and honor and power and might, be to our God forever and ever. Amen."

13. Then one of the elders answered, saying to me, "Who are these arrayed in white robes, and where did they come from?" 14 And I said to him, "Lord, you know." So he said to me, "These are the ones who are coming out of the great tribulation, and have washed their robes and made their robes white in the blood of the Lamb. 15 Therefore they are before the throne of God, and serve Him day and night in His temple. And He who sits on the throne will dwell among them. 16 They shall neither hunger anymore nor thirst anymore; neither shall the sun strike them, nor any heat; 17 for the Lamb who is in the midst of the throne will shepherd them and lead them to living fountains of waters. And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes."

THE SPIRITUAL MEANING

The Contents of the Whole Chapter

This chapter describes people who are and who will be in the Christian heaven. It describes first their separation from evil people (verses 1-3); after that, those of them who are impelled by love toward the Lord and so by wisdom, of whom the higher heavens consist (verses 4-8); and those who are impelled by charity from the Lord and its accompanying faith because they fought against evils, of whom the lower heavens consist (verses 9-17).

THE EXPOSITION

After these things I saw four angels standing at the four corners of the earth. (7:1) This symbolizes the whole of heaven now in an effort to execute the Last Judgment on the people who were in the world of spirits.

There follows now much concerning the state of the spiritual world just before the Last Judgment, which no one could know without its being revealed by the Lord. And because I have been given to see how the Last Judgment was executed, including the transformations which preceded it and the dispositions following it, I can relate therefore the symbolic meaning of everything in this chapter and in the chapters that follow.

(Odkazy: Apocalypse Revealed 342, 343, 345, 346, 347, 348, 349, 350, 351, 352, 353, 354, 355, 356, 357, 358, 359, 360, 361, 363-364, 365, 366, 367, 368, 369, 371, 372, 373, 374, 375, 376, 377, 378, 379, 380, 381, 382, 383, 384; Revelation 7:1-3, 7:2, 7:3, 7:4, 7:4-8, 7:5, 7:6, 7:7, 7:8, 7:9, 7:9-17, 7:10, 7:11, 7:12, 7:13, 7:14, 7:15, 7:16, 7:17)


[2] The four angels here symbolize the whole of heaven. The four corners of the earth symbolize the entire world of spirits, which is midway between heaven and hell. For the Last Judgment was executed on people who were in the world of spirits, and not on anyone in heaven, nor on anyone in hell.

Angels symbolize heaven because an angel in the highest sense means the Lord in respect to His Divine humanity (no. 344), and as heaven is heaven owing to the Lord, angels symbolize heaven as well.

[3] The four angels here symbolize the whole of heaven because they were seen standing at the four corners of the earth, and the four corners symbolize the four quarters of the compass.

They symbolize that the whole of heaven was now in an effort to execute the Last Judgment for the reason that when the Last Judgment was at hand, the Lord caused the heavens to draw closer over the world of spirits, and the closeness of the heavens produced such a change in the state of the inner constituents of the people's minds below that they saw nothing but terrors before their eyes.

[4] That corners symbolize quarters of the compass, and thus the four quarters all points, can be seen from the following passages:

You shall measure, outside the city, the corner toward the east..., the corner toward the south..., the corner toward the west..., and the corner toward the north... (Numbers 35:5)

You shall make the boards for the Tabernacle, ...for the south corner..., and for... the north corner... (Exodus 26:18, 20, 23)

And... the court..., for the south corner..., for the north corner..., for the west corner..., and... for the east corner... (Exodus 27:9, 11-13)

(Odkazy: Ezekiel 48:1-30)


[5] The four quarters are also called four corners often in Ezekiel, as in Ezekiel 47:18-20, and 48.

Since corners symbolize the quarters of the compass, they also therefore symbolize everything, such as everything in heaven or in hell, or everything pertaining to goodness or to truth, as is apparent from the following:

(Satan) will go out to lead astray the nations which are at the four corners of the earth... (Revelation 20:8)

I will cut off nations, (and) their corners will be devastated. (Zephaniah 3:6)

...(Israel) gathered together as one man... And the corners of all the people stationed themselves... (Judges 20:1-2)

A scepter shall rise out of Israel, and crush the corners of Moab... (Numbers 24:17)

A day of trumpet and alarm... upon the high corners. (Zephaniah 1:16)

I will cast them into the ends of the corners. (Deuteronomy 32:26)

(Odkazy: Ezekiel 47:17-20, 48:1)


[6] That a corner symbolizes the lowest component supporting higher ones, as a foundation does a house, and so symbolizes also everything, is apparent from the following:

(He) will lay in Zion a corner stone..., the price of the laying of a foundation. (Isaiah 28:16)

They shall not take from it a stone for a corner... (Jeremiah 51:26)

From (Judah) shall come the corner stone... (Zechariah 10:4)

The stone which (they) rejected has become the corner stone. (Psalms 118:22, Matthew 21:42, Mark 12:10, Luke 20:17-18)
