1 NELL’anno primo di Belsasar, re di Babilonia, Daniele vide un sogno, e delle visioni del suo capo, sopra il suo letto. Allora egli scrisse il sogno, e dichiarò la somma delle cose.

2 Daniele adunque prese a dire: Io riguardava nella mia visione, di notte, ed ecco, i quattro venti del cielo salivano impetuosamente in sul mar grande.

3 E quattro gran bestie salivano fuor del mare, differenti l’una dall’altra.

4 La prima era simile ad un leone, ed avea delle ale d’aquila; io stava riguardando, finchè le furono divelte le ale, e fu fatta levar da terra, e che si rizzò in piè, a guisa d’uomo; e le fu dato cuor d’uomo.

5 Poi, ecco un’altra seconda bestia, simigliante ad un orso, la quale si levò da un lato, ed avea tre costole in bocca, fra i suoi denti. E le fu detto così: Levati, mangia molta carne.

6 Poi io riguardava, ed eccone un’altra, simigliante ad un pardo, la quale avea quattro ale d’uccello in sul dosso; e quella bestia avea quattro teste, e le fu data la signoria.

7 Appresso, io riguardava nelle visioni di notte, ed ecco una quarta bestia, spaventevole, terribile, e molto forte, la quale avea di gran denti di ferro; ella mangiava, e tritava e calpestava il rimanente co’ piedi; ed era differente da tutte le bestie, ch’erano state davanti a lei, ed avea dieci corna.

8 Io poneva mente a queste corna, ed ecco un altro corno piccolo saliva fra quelle, e tre delle prime corna furono divelte d’innanzi a quello; ed ecco, quel corno avea degli occhi simiglianti agli occhi d’un uomo, ed una bocca che proferiva cose grandi.

9 Io stava riguardando, finchè i troni furono posti, e che l’Antico de’ giorni si pose a sedere; il suo vestimento era candido come neve, e i capelli del suo capo erano simili a lana netta, e il suo trono era a guisa di scintille di fuoco, e le ruote d’esso simili a fuoco ardente.

10 Un fiume di fuoco traeva, ed usciva dalla sua presenza; mille migliaia gli ministravano, e diecimila decine di migliaia stavano davanti a lui; il giudicio si tenne, e i libri furono aperti.

11 Allora io riguardai, per la voce delle grandi parole, che quel corno proferiva; e riguardai, finchè la bestia fu uccisa, e il suo corpo fu distrutto, e fu dato ad essere arso col fuoco.

12 La signoria fu eziandio tolta alle altre bestie, e fu loro dato prolungamento di vita, fino ad un tempo, e termine costituito.

13 Io riguardava nelle visioni notturne, ed ecco, con le nuvole del cielo, veniva uno, simile ad un figliuol d’uomo; ed egli pervenne fino all’Antico de’ giorni, e fu fatto accostar davanti a lui.

14 Ed esso gli diede signoria, e gloria, e regno; e tutti i popoli, nazioni, e lingue, devono servirgli; la sua signoria è una signoria eterna, la qual non trapasserà giammai; e il suo regno è un regno che non sarà giammai distrutto.

15 Quant’è a me Daniele lo spirito mi venne meno in mezzo del corpo, e le visioni del mio capo mi conturbarono.

16 E mi accostai ad uno de’ circostanti, e gli domandai la verità intorno a tutte queste cose; ed egli me la disse, e mi dichiarò l’interpretazione delle cose, dicendo:

17 Queste quattro gran bestie significano quattro re, che sorgeranno dalla terra.

18 E poi i santi dell’Altissimo riceveranno il regno, e lo possederanno in perpetuo, ed in sempiterno.

19 Allora io desiderai di sapere la verità intorno alla quarta bestia, ch’era differente da tutte le altre, ed era molto terribile; i cui denti erano di ferro, e le unghie di rame; che mangiava, tritava, e calpestava il rimanente co’ piedi;

20 e intorno alle dieci corna ch’ella avea in capo, e intorno a quell’ultimo, che saliva, e d’innanzi al quale tre erano cadute; e intorno a ciò che quel corno avea degli occhi, e una bocca che proferiva cose grandi; e che l’aspetto di esso era maggiore di quello de’ suoi compagni.

21 Io avea riguardato, e quel corno faceva guerra co’ santi, e li vinceva;

22 finchè l’Antico de’ giorni venne, e il giudicio fu dato a’ santi dell’Altissimo; e venne il tempo che i santi doveano possedere il regno.

23 E colui mi disse così: La quarta bestia significa un quarto regno che sarà in terra, il qual sarà differente da tutti quegli altri regni, e divorerà tutta le terra, e la calpesterà, e la triterà.

24 E le dieci corna significano dieci re, che sorgeranno di quel regno; ed un altro sorgerà dopo loro, il qual sarà differente da’ precedenti, ed abbatterà tre re.

25 E proferirà parole contro all’Altissimo, e distruggerà i santi dell’Altissimo; e penserà di mutare i tempi, e la Legge; e i santi gli saran dati nelle mani fino ad un tempo, più tempi, e la metà d’un tempo.

26 Poi si terrà il giudicio, e la sua signoria gli sarà tolta; ed egli sarà sterminato, e distrutto fino all’estremo.

27 E il regno, e la signoria, e la grandezza de’ regni, che sono sotto tutti i cieli, sarà data al popolo de’ santi dell’Altissimo; il regno d’esso sarà un regno eterno, e tutti gl’imperi gli serviranno, ed ubbidiranno.

28 Qui è la fine delle parole. Quant’è a me Daniele, i miei pensieri mi spaventarono forte, e il color del mio volto fu mutato in me; e conservai la cosa nel mio cuore.

256. CHAPTER 5

1. And I saw in the right hand of Him who sat on the throne a book written inside and on the back, sealed with seven seals. 2 Then I saw a strong angel proclaiming with a loud voice, "Who is worthy to open the book and to loose its seals?" 3 And no one in heaven or on the earth or under the earth was able to open the book, or to look in it. 4 So I wept much, that no one was found worthy to open and read the book, or to look in it. 5 But one of the elders said to me, "Do not weep. Behold, the Lion of the tribe of Judah, the Root of David, has prevailed to open the book and to loose its seven seals." 6 And I looked, and behold, in the midst of the throne and of the four living creatures, and in the midst of the elders, a Lamb standing as though slain, having seven horns and seven eyes, which are the seven spirits of God sent out into all the earth. 7 Then He came and took the book out of the right hand of Him who sat on the throne.

8. Now when He had taken the book, the four living creatures and the twenty-four elders fell down before the Lamb, each having a lyre, and a golden bowl full of incense, which are the prayers of the saints. 9 And they sang a new song, saying, "You are worthy to take the book and to open its seals, because You were slain and have redeemed us to God by Your blood, out of every tribe and tongue and people and nation, 10 and have made us kings and priests to our God; and we shall reign on the earth."

11. Then I looked, and I heard the voice of many angels around the throne, the living creatures, and the elders; and the number of them was ten thousand times ten thousand, and thousands of thousands, 12 saying with a loud voice, "Worthy is the Lamb who was slain to receive power and riches and wisdom, and... honor and glory and blessing!"

13. And every creature which is in heaven and on the earth and under the earth and such as are in the sea, and all that are in them, I heard saying, "Blessing and honor and glory and strength be to Him who sits on the throne, and to the Lamb, forever and ever!"

14. Then the four living creatures said, "Amen!" And the twenty-four elders fell down and worshiped Him who lives forever and ever.

THE SPIRITUAL MEANING

The Contents of the Whole Chapter

The meaning is that the Lord in His Divine humanity will execute a judgment based on the Word and in accordance with it, because He embodies the Word; and that all in the three heavens acknowledge this.

And the twenty-four elders fell down and worshiped Him who lives forever and ever.Humility before the Lord on the part of all in the heavens, and out of humility worship of Him, from whom and in whom is eternal life.



THE EXPOSITION

And I saw in the right hand of Him who sat on the throne a book written inside and on the back. (5:1) This symbolizes the Lord in respect to His underlying Divinity from eternity, to whom belongs omnipotence and omniscience, and who embodies the Word, who also of Himself knows the states of life of all in heaven and on earth, in every particular and in their entirety.

He who sat on the throne means the Lord in respect to His underlying Divinity from which His humanity originates, for the statement follows that the Lamb took the book out of the right hand of Him who sat on the throne (verse 7), and the Lamb means the Lord in respect to His humanity. The book written inside and on the back means the Word in every particular and in its entirety - "inside" meaning in every particular, and "on the back," in its entirety. Inside and on the back also mean the inner meaning of the Word, which is spiritual, and its outer meaning, which is natural. The right hand means the Lord in respect to His omnipotence and omniscience, because the subject is the exploration of all in heaven and on earth on whom the Last Judgment would fall, and their separation.

As the embodiment of the Word, the Lord knows of Himself the states of life of all in heaven and on earth, because He is Divine truth itself, and Divine truth itself, of itself, knows everything. This, however, is a secret which we disclosed in Angelic Wisdom Regarding Divine Love and Wisdom.

The fact that the Lord was the Word, that is to say, Divine truth, in respect to His Divinity from eternity is apparent from this statement in John:

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. (John 1:1)

And the fact that the Lord came to embody the Word even in respect to His humanity, from this statement also in John:

And the Word became flesh... (John 1:14)

It can be seen from this what is meant by the testimony that the book was in right hand of Him who sat on the throne, and that the Lamb took the book from it (verse 7).

(Odkazy: Apocalypse Revealed 256, 257, 259, 260, 261, 262, 263, 264, 265-266, 267, 268, 269, 270, 271, 272, 273, 274, 275, 277, 278, 279, 280, 281, 282, 283, 284-285, 286, 288, 289, 290, 291, 292, 293; Revelation 5:2, 5:3, 5:4, 5:5, 5:6, 5:7, 5:8, 5:9, 5:10, 5:11, 5:12, 5:13, 5:14)


[2] Since the Lord embodies the Word, and the Word is the Divine truth which forms heaven and the church in general, and each angel in particular so as to have heaven in him, and each person so as to have the church in him, and because the Word is here meant by the book on the basis of which and according to which all are to be judged, therefore we find references here and there to being written in the book, to being judged on the basis of the book, and to being blotted out from the book, where the subject is someone's state of eternal life, as in the following places:

(The Ancient of Days) sat in judgment, and the books were opened. (Daniel 7:10)

...your people shall be delivered, every one who is found written in the book. (Daniel 12:1)

My frame was not hidden from You... ...on Your book were written all the days..., and not one of them is missing. (Psalms 139:15-16)

(Moses said,) ."..I pray, blot me out of Your book which You have written." And Jehovah said..., "He who has sinned against Me, him I will blot out of My book." (Exodus 32:32-33)

Let them be blotted out of the book of life, and not be written with the righteous. (Psalms 69:28)

I saw (that) books were opened. And another book was opened, which is the Book of Life. And the dead were judged according to the things which were written in the Book, according to their works..., and if anyone was not found written in the Book of Life, he was cast into the lake of fire. (Revelation 20:12-15)

There shall not enter into (the New Jerusalem) anything... but those who are written in the Lamb's Book of Life. (Revelation 21:27)

All... will worship (the beast), whose names have not been written in the Book of Life of the Lamb... (Revelation 13:8, cf. 17:8)

That the Book means the Word may be seen in the book of Psalms:

In the scroll of the book it is written of me. (Psalms 40:7)

And in Ezekiel:

I looked, and lo, there was a hand stretched out to me, and... in it the scroll of a book... written in front and in back... (Ezekiel 2:9-10)

...the book of the words of Isaiah... (Luke 3:4)

...the Book of Psalms... (Luke 20:42)

(Odkazy: Daniel 7:9-10; Revelation 20:12, 20:15)
