1 כה הראני אדני יהוה והנה יוצר גבי בתחלת עלות הלקש והנה לקש אחר גזי המלך׃

2 והיה אם כלה לאכול את עשב הארץ ואמר אדני יהוה סלח נא מי יקום יעקב כי קטן הוא׃

3 נחם יהוה על זאת לא תהיה אמר יהוה׃

4 כה הראני אדני יהוה והנה קרא לרב באש אדני יהוה ותאכל את תהום רבה ואכלה את החלק׃

5 ואמר אדני יהוה חדל נא מי יקום יעקב כי קטן הוא׃

6 נחם יהוה על זאת גם היא לא תהיה אמר אדני יהוה׃

7 כה הראני והנה אדני נצב על חומת אנך ובידו אנך׃

8 ויאמר יהוה אלי מה אתה ראה עמוס ואמר אנך ויאמר אדני הנני שם אנך בקרב עמי ישראל לא אוסיף עוד עבור לו׃

9 ונשמו במות ישחק ומקדשי ישראל יחרבו וקמתי על בית ירבעם בחרב׃

10 וישלח אמציה כהן בית אל אל ירבעם מלך ישראל לאמר קשר עליך עמוס בקרב בית ישראל לא תוכל הארץ להכיל את כל דבריו׃

11 כי כה אמר עמוס בחרב ימות ירבעם וישראל גלה יגלה מעל אדמתו׃

12 ויאמר אמציה אל עמוס חזה לך ברח לך אל ארץ יהודה ואכל שם לחם ושם תנבא׃

13 ובית אל לא תוסיף עוד להנבא כי מקדש מלך הוא ובית ממלכה הוא׃

14 ויען עמוס ויאמר אל אמציה לא נביא אנכי ולא בן נביא אנכי כי בוקר אנכי ובולס שקמים׃

15 ויקחני יהוה מאחרי הצאן ויאמר אלי יהוה לך הנבא אל עמי ישראל׃

16 ועתה שמע דבר יהוה אתה אמר לא תנבא על ישראל ולא תטיף על בית ישחק׃

17 לכן כה אמר יהוה אשתך בעיר תזנה ובניך ובנתיך בחרב יפלו ואדמתך בחבל תחלק ואתה על אדמה טמאה תמות וישראל גלה יגלה מעל אדמתו׃

7571. 'And on every plant of the field in the land of Egypt' means every truth of the Church in the natural mind. This is clear from the meaning of 'plant' as truth, dealt with below; from the meaning of 'the field' as the Church, dealt with above in 7557; and from the meaning of 'the land of Egypt' as the natural mind, also dealt with above, in 7569. The reason why 'plant' means truth is that 'the land' means the Church, as also does 'the field'; and all that they produce means either the truth of faith or the good of charity, since these are products of the Church. 'Plant of the field' is used to mean everything in general that is grown in the field, as is evident from the Lord's parable in Matthew,

The kingdom of heaven may be likened to a person sowing good seed in his field. When the plant sprouted and bore fruit, then the tares appeared. Matthew 13:24, 26.

Here it is evident that 'the plant', a term used for what the field produces, means the Church's truth, and 'the tares' falsity. The parable is, it is true, a comparison; but all comparisons in the Word are based on things that have a spiritual meaning, 3579. In David,

He causes the grass to grow for the beast, and the plant for man's service, that he may bring forth bread from the earth. Psalms 104:14.

'The plant', a term used here also for what the field produces, in the internal sense means truth.

(Odkazy: Matthew 13:28)

[2] In the same author,

He will make me lie down in pastures of the plant; 1 He will lead me to still waters; He will restore my soul. Psalms 23:2-3.

'Pastures of the plant' stands for spiritual nourishment, nourishment of the soul. That is why it says 'He will restore my soul'. In Isaiah,

The waters of Nimrim will be desolations, for the reason that the grass has withered away, the plant has been consumed, there is nothing green. [Isaiah 15:6.

In the same prophet,

The inhabitants became plants of the field and edible grass, hay on the rooftops, and scorched earth before standing corn.] Isaiah 37:17.

In the same prophet,

I will lay waste mountains and hills, and dry up every plant on them; and I will make streams into islands. And I will lead the blind in a way they do not know. Isaiah 42:15-16.

In Jeremiah,

How long will the land mourn and the plant of every field wither, on account of the wickedness of those who dwell in it? The beasts and the birds will be devoured. Jeremiah 12:4.

In the same prophet,

The hind in the field calved but left because there was no plant; and the wild asses stood on the hills, they gulped the wind like sea-monsters, for the reason that there was no plant. Jeremiah 14:5-6.

In Joel,

Fear not, you beasts of My fields, for the dwelling-places of the wilderness have become abounding in plants; for the tree will bear its fruit, the fig tree and the vine will give their full yield. Joel 1:12.

In Amos,

When the locust had finished eating the plant of the land, I said, O Lord Jehovih, Pardon, I beg You. How will Jacob stand? for he is small. Amos 7:2.

(Odkazy: Isaiah 37:27, 42:15; Joel 2:22; Revelation 9:1)

[3] In Zechariah,

Ask rain from Jehovah in the time of the latter rain. 2 Jehovah will make rain-clouds, and will give them rain in showers, to everyone plants in his field. 3 Zechariah 10:1.

In John,

The fifth angel sounded and it was declared that they should not harm the grass of the earth, or any green thing, or any tree. Revelation 9:4.

Anyone may see that in these places 'grass' is not meant, nor 'plant', but instead the kinds of things that belong to the Church; 'the plant of the land' and 'plant of the field' are, it is plain, used to mean the truth of faith. Without such a spiritual sense no one would ever know what is meant in John by their declaring, when the fifth angel sounded, that they should not harm the grass of the earth, or any green thing. Nor would anyone know what is meant in Jeremiah when it says that 'the hind in the field calved and left because there was no plant; and the wild asses gulped the wind like sea-monsters, for the reason that there was no plant'. And in very many other places no one would know what is meant. This shows how little understanding there is of the Word, and how earthly a person's conception of very many things in it must be unless he knows what their spiritual meaning is, or at least knows that in every detail the Word is holy.


1. i.e. green pastures

2. i.e. the spring rain

3. literally, to [each] man the plant in the field
