1 Und ich sprach: Höret doch, ihr Häupter im Hause Jakob und ihr Fürsten im Hause Israel! Ihr solltet es billig sein, die das Recht wüßten.

2 Aber ihr hasset das Gute und liebet das Arge; ihr schindet ihnen die Haut ab und das Fleisch von ihren Beinen

3 und fresset das Fleisch meines Volks; und wenn ihr ihnen die Haut abgezogen habt, zerbrecht ihr ihnen auch die Beine und zerleget es wie in einen Topf und wie Fleisch in einen Kessel.

4 Darum wenn ihr nun zum HERRN schreien werdet, wird er euch nicht erhören, sondern wird sein Angesicht vor euch verbergen zur selbigen Zeit, wie ihr mit eurem bösen Wesen verdienet habt.

5 So spricht der HERR wider die Propheten, so mein Volk verführen: Sie predigen, es solle wohlgehen, wo man ihnen zu fressen gebe; wo man ihnen aber nichts ins Maul gibt, da predigen sie, es müsse ein Krieg kommen.

6 Darum soll euer Gesicht zur Nacht und euer Wahrsagen zur Finsternis werden. Die Sonne soll über den Propheten untergehen und der Tag über ihnen finster werden.

7 Und die Schauer sollen zuschanden und die Wahrsager zu Spott werden, und müssen ihr Maul alle verhüllen, weil da kein Gotteswort sein wird.

8 Ich aber bin voll Kraft und Geistes des HERRN, voll Rechts und Stärke, daß ich Jakob sein Übertreten und Israel seine Sünde anzeigen darf.

9 So höret doch dies, ihr Häupter im Hause Jakob und ihr Fürsten im Hause Israel, die ihr das Recht verschmähet und alles, was aufrichtig ist, verkehret,

10 die ihr Zion mit Blut bauet und Jerusalem mit Unrecht.

11 Ihre Häupter richten um Geschenke, ihre Priester lehren um Lohn, und ihre Propheten wahrsagen um Geld, verlassen sich auf den HERRN und sprechen: Ist nicht der HERR unter uns? Es kann kein Unglück über uns kommen.

12 Darum wird Zion um euretwillen wie ein Feld zerpflüget und Jerusalem zum Steinhaufen und der Berg des Tempels zu einer wilden Höhe werden.

Time is an aspect of the physical world, but according to Swedenborg is not an aspect of the spiritual world. The same is true of space: There is no space in heaven. This is hard for us to grasp or even visualize, because we live in physical bodies with physical senses that are filled with physical elements existing in time and space. So our minds are schooled and patterned in terms of time and space, and have no reference point to imagine a reality without them.

But consider your mind, your consciousness. In your mind you can immediately be in your past or in some speculative future; in your mind you can circle the globe seeing other lands and faraway friends, or even zoom instantly to the most distant stars. Such imaginings are insubstantial, of course, but if we could make them real we would be getting close to what spiritual reality is like. Indeed, the Writings describe the mind as a spiritual organ, which may be why physicians and philosophers have had such a hard time juxtaposing its functions to those of the brain.

What this means in the Bible is that descriptions of time - hours, days, weeks, months, years and even simply the word "time" itself - represent spiritual states, and the passing of time represents the change of spiritual states. Again, we can see this a little bit within our minds. If we imagine talking to one friend then talking to another, it feels like going from one place to another, even though we're not moving. The same is true if we picture a moment from childhood and then imagine something in the future; it feels like a movement through time even though it's instantaneous. Changing our state of mind feels like a physical change in space and time. The Bible simply reverses that, with marking points in space and time representing particular states of mind.
