1 ထိုနောက်မှ အရှေ့ဘက်သို့ မျက်နှာပြုသော တံခါးဝသို့ တဖန်ခေါ်သွား၏။

2 ဣသရေလအမျိုး၏ ဘုရားသခင်ဘုန်းတော် သည် အရှေ့မျက်နှာမှလာ၍၊ အသံသည် သမုဒ္ဒရာ သကဲ့သို့ဖြစ်၏။ ရောင်ခြည်တော်အားဖြင့် မြေတပြင်လုံး လင်း၏။

3 ငါမြင်သော ရူပါရုံသည် မြို့တော်ကိုဖျက်ဆီးခြင်း ငှါ လာသောအခါ၊ ငါမြင်သော ရူပါရုံနှင့်တူ၏။ ထင်ရှား သောအရာတို့သည် ခေဗာမြစ်နားမှာ ငါမြင်ဘူးသော အရာများကဲ့သို့ဖြစ်၍၊ ငါသည် ပြပ်ဝပ်လျက်နေ၏။

4 ထာဝရဘုရား၏ ဘုန်းတော်သည် အရှေ့ဘက် သို့ မျက်နှာပြုသော တံခါးလမ်းဖြင့် အိမ်တော်ထဲသို့ ဝင်တော်မူ၏။

5 ထိုအခါ ဝိညာဉ်တော်သည် ငါ့ကိုချီလျက် အတွင်း တန်တိုင်းထဲသို့ ဆောင်သွား၍၊ ထာဝရဘုရား၏ ဘုန်းတော်သည် တအိမ်လုံးကို ဖြည့်တော်မူ၏။

6 အရင်လူသည် ငါ့အနားမှာရပ်နေလျက်၊ အိမ်တော်ထဲက ငါ့အား မိန့်တော်မူသောအသံကို ငါကြား သည်ကား၊

7 အချင်းလူသား၊ ဤအရပ်သည် ငါ့ပလ္လင်တည်ရာ အရပ်၊ ငါ့ခြေဘဝါးနင်းမြဲအရပ်၊ ဣသရေလအမျိုးသား တို့တွင် အစဉ်အမြဲငါ့နေရာအရပ် ဖြစ်၏။ ဣသရေလ ရှင်ဘုရင်များနှင့် အမျိုးသားတို့သည် မှားယွင်းခြင်းအား ဖြင့်၎င်း၊ ရှင်ဘုရင်၏အသေကောင်အားဖြင့်၎င်း၊ မြင့်ရာ အရပ်တို့၌ငါ၏နာမတော်မြတ်ကို နောက်တဖန် မရှုတ်ချရကြ။

8 သူတို့တံခါးခုံကိုလည်း ငါ့တံခါးခုံအနားမှာ၎င်း၊ သူတို့တိုင်ကို လည်း ငါ့တိုင်အနားမှာ၎င်း တည်စိုက်လျက်၊ ငါနှင့်သူတို့စပ်ကြားမှာ နံရံတခတည်းသာရှိလျက်၊ သူတို့ ပြုမိသော စက်ဆုပ်ရွံရှာဘွယ်အမှုတို့ဖြင့်၊ ငါ၏နာမတော် မြတ်ကို ရှုတ်ချသောကြောင့်၊ ငါသည်အမျက်ထွက်၍ သူတို့ကို ဖျက်ဆီးပြီ။

9 ယခုမူကား၊ သူတို့မှားယွင်းခြင်းအမှုများနှင့် ရှင်ဘုရင်၏အသေကောင်များကို ငါမှဝေးစွာ ပယ်ရှား ကြစေ။ ငါသည်လည်း သူတို့တွင် အစဉ်အမြဲနေမည်။

10 အချင်းလူသား၊ ဣသရေလအမျိုးသားတို့သည် ကိုယ်ဒုစရိုက်အပြစ်ကြောင့် ရှက်ကြောက်စေခြင်းငှါ အိမ်တော်ကိုပြလော့။ အိမ်တော်ပုံကို သူတို့ တိုင်းကြ စေလော့။

11 သူတို့သည် ကိုယ်ပြုမိသောအမှုများကြောင့် အမှန်ရှက်ကြောက်လျှင်၊ အိမ်ပုံသဏ္ဌာန်နှင့် ထွက်ရာ ဝင်ရာတံခါးဝများ၊ ကျင့်ရသမျှသော ထုံးစံများ၊ စီရင် ထုံးဖွဲ့ချက်တရား အလုံးစုံတို့ကိုပြလော့။ သူတို့သည် ထုံးစံ များနှင့် စီရင်ထုံးဖွဲ့ချက်အလုံးစုံတို့ကို ကျင့်စောင့်စေခြင်း ငှါ သူတို့ရှေ့မှာ ရေးထားလော့။

12 တောင်ထိပ်ပေါ်မှာတည်သော အိမ်တော်၏ ကရားဟူမူကား၊ အိမ်တော်နယ်နိမိတ်ရှိသမျှတို့သည် အလွန်သန့်ရှင်းရကြမည်။ ဤရွေ့ကား၊ အိမ်တော်၏ တရားပေတည်း။

13 ယဇ်ပလ္လင်အတိုင်းအရှည်ကား၊ သံတောင်ဖြင့် တိုင်းလျှင်၊ ဘိနပ်အမြင့်တတောင်၊ အကျယ်တတောင်၊ ပတ်လည်အနားပတ် အကျယ်တထွာရှိ၍၊ ယဇ်ပလ္လင် ပြင်ဘက်၌ တည်ရ၏။

14 အောက်အထစ်သည် မြေနှင့်နှစ်တောင်ကွာ၍ အကျယ်တတောင်ရှိရမည်။ ငယ်သောအထစ်နှင့် ကြီး သောအထစ်သည် လေးတောင်ကွာ၍ အကျယ်တတောင် ရှိရမည်။

18 တဖန်အချင်းလူသား၊ အရှင်ထာဝရဘုရား မိန့်တော်မူ သည်အတိုင်း၊ မီးရှို့ရာယဇ်ကိုပူဇော်၍ အသွေးကိုဖျန် ဘို့ရာ၊ ယဇ်ပလ္လင်ကိုတည်သောနေ့၌ ကျင့်ရသောတရား ဟူမူကား၊

19 အမှုတော်ကိုဆောင်၍ ငါ့ထံသို့ ချဉ်းကပ်သော လေဝိအမျိုး၊ ဇာဒုတ်သားယဇ်ပုရောဟိတ်တို့အား အပြစ် ဖြေရာယဇ်ဘို့၊ ပျိုသောနွားထီးတကောင်ကို အပ်ရမည်။

20 နွားအသွေးအချို့ကိုယူ၍ ယဇ်ပလ္လင်ဦးချို လေးချောင်း၊ အထစ်လေးထောင့်၊ အနားပတ်ကိုလူးသော အားဖြင့် သန့်ရှင်းစင်ကြယ်စေရမည်။

21 အပြစ်ဖြေရာ ယဇ်ဘို့နွားကောင်ကို ယူ၍ သန့်ရှင်းရာဌာနပြင်၊ ဗိမာန်တော်အတွင်းတွင် ခန့်ထားသော အရပ်၌မီးရှို့ရမည်။

22 ဒုတိယနေ့၌လည်း အပြစ်မရှိသော ဆိတ်သငယ် ကို ယူ၍၊ အပြစ်ဖြေရာ ယဇ်ဘို့ပူဇော်ရမည်။ ယဇ်ပလ္လင် ကို နွားအသွေးနှင့်သန့်ရှင်းစေသကဲ့သို့ ဆိတ်အသွေး နှင့် သန့်ရှင်းစေရမည်။

23 ထိုသို့ယဇ်ပလ္လင်ကို သန့်ရှင်းစေပြီးသည်နောက်၊ အပြစ်မရှိ၊ ပျိုသောနွားထီးနှင့် အပြစ်မရှိသော ဆိတ်ထီးကိုထာဝရဘုရား ရှေ့တော်၌ပူဇော်ရမည်။

27 ခုနစ်ရက်စေ့သောနောက် အဋ္ဌမနေ့၌၎င်း၊ ထိုနေ့မှစ၍၎င်း၊ ယဇ်ပုရောဟိတ်တို့သည် ယဇ်ပလ္လင် ပေါ်မှာ သင်တို့မီးရှို့ရာယဇ်များနှင့် မိဿဟာယယဇ်များ ကို ပူဇော်ရကြမည်။ ငါသည်လည်း၊ သင်တို့လက်ခံ မည်ဟု အရှင်ထာဝရဘုရား မိန့်တော်မူ၏။

Altar      

Napsal(a) New Christian Bible Study Staff

← Předchozí   Další →

The first altar mentioned in the Word was built by Noah after he came out of the ark. On that altar, he sacrificed clean animals to the Lord. Mountains represent the Lord becase they are high, and we must raise our thoughts above worldly things when "talking" with the Lord. An altar is a small artificial mountain but when used in worship can call to mind this raising of thought, and the fire and smoke is sent up which symbolically is sent to the Lord. Most altars were made from unhewn stones. Stones represent truths and stones that have not been shaped by men represent truths from the Word, truths that have not been adulterated. The clean beasts represent good things, charitable acts done because they are right, and the clean birds represent thoughts about doctrine and actions, and about what is right. So presenting these things is an acknowledgment that we have them from the Lord, and thank Him for them.

In the Israelitish Tabernacle, the Altar of burnt offering represented the acknowledgment of good and the altar of incense that of truth. For this reason this larger altar, which was outside by the door, was made of brass which signifies natural good, and the altar of incense was made of gold which signifies love to the Lord from whom comes truth.

179. Verse 28. And I will give him the morning star, signifies intelligence and wisdom from the Lord's Divine Human. This is evident from the signification of "stars," as being the knowledges of good and truth (see above, n. 72; and as they signify the knowledges of good and truth, they also signify intelligence and wisdom, for all intelligence and wisdom come by means of the knowledges of good and truth. It is evident also from the signification of "morning" as being the Lord in respect to His Divine Human, therefore "the morning star" means intelligence and wisdom from Him. "Morning" is often mentioned in the Word, and its signification varies according to the connection in the internal sense; in the highest sense it signifies the Lord, and also His coming; in the internal sense it signifies His kingdom and church, and their state of peace. Moreover, it signifies the first state of a new church, and also a state of love, and a state of illustration, consequently a state of intelligence and wisdom, and also a state of the conjunction of good and truth, the state in which the internal man is conjoined to the external. "Morning" has such various significations, because in the highest sense it signifies the Lord's Divine Human; it therefore also signifies all things that proceed from the Divine Human, for the Lord is in those things that proceed from Him, even so that it is He there.

(Odkazy: Revelation 2:28; The Apocalypse Explained 72)


[2] The Divine Human of the Lord in the highest sense is meant by "morning," because the Lord is the sun of the angelic heaven, and the sun of that heaven does not advance from morning to evening, or from rising to setting, as the sun of the world apparently does, but remains constantly in its place, in front above the heavens; consequently the sun is always in the morning there, and never in the evening. And since all the intelligence and wisdom that the angels have comes from the Lord as their sun, their state of love, and state of wisdom and intelligence, and in general their state of illustration is signified by "morning;" for these proceed from the Lord as a sun, and what proceeds from Him is Himself, for from the Divine nothing but what is Divine goes forth, and everything Divine is Himself. (That the Lord is the sun of the angelic heaven, and that from Him as a sun there exist all love, wisdom, and intelligence, and in general all illustration in respect to Divine truths, from which is wisdom, see in the work on Heaven and Hell 116-125, 126-143, 155, 156.)

(Odkazy: Heaven and Hell 155-156)


[3] From this it can he seen why "morning" is so often mentioned in the Word when Jehovah or the Lord, His coming, His kingdom and church, and the goods thereof are treated of; as in the following passages, which I will cite by way of illustration. In the second book of Samuel:

The God of Israel said, the Rock of Israel spoke to me. He is as the light of the morning; the son riseth, a morning without clouds (2 Samuel 23:3, 4).

"The God of Israel" and "the Rock" is the Lord in respect to the Divine Human and Divine truth proceeding therefrom; "the God of Israel" because Israel is His spiritual church, and "the Rock" because His Divine in the spiritual church is Divine truth (see Arcana Coelestia 3720, 6426, 8581, 10580). As the Lord in the angelic heaven is a sun, and as all the light that angels have is therefrom, and as the sun there is continually in its morning, it is said, "He is as the light of the morning; the sun riseth, a morning without clouds."

(Odkazy: 2 Samuel 23:3-4)


[4] In David:

From the womb of the morning thou hast the dew of thy youth; thou art a priest forever, after the order of Melchizedek (Psalms 110:3, 4).

This is said of the Lord as about to come into the world; "from the womb of the morning thou hast the dew of thy youth" is conception from the Divine Itself, and the glorification of His Human thereby; "a priest forever after the order of Melchizedek," means that Divine good and Divine truth proceed from Him, for the Lord as priest is Divine good, and as king of holiness, who is, "Melchizedek," is Divine truth (see Arcana Coelestia 1725).

(Odkazy: Psalms 110:3-4)


[5] In Ezekiel:

The cherubim stood at the east entrance of the gate of the house; the glory of the God of Israel was over them above (Ezekiel 10:19).

"Cherubim" signify the Lord in respect to providence and as to guard lest He be approached otherwise than by the good of love; "the east entrance of the gate of the house" signifies approach; "the house of God" is heaven and the church; the "east" is where the Lord appears as a sun, thus where He is continually as the morning; therefore it is said "the glory of the God of Israel was over them above."

[6] In the same:

The angel brought me to the gate that looketh towards the east; and behold, the glory of the God of Israel came from the way of the east; and the earth was enlightened by His glory. And the glory of Jehovah came into the house by the way of the gate whose face is toward the east (Ezekiel 43:1, 2, 4).

Here, in the internal sense, the influx of the Lord into those who are in His kingdom and church is described; "the God of Israel" is the Lord in respect to the Divine Human and the Divine truth proceeding therefrom; "the house of God" is His kingdom and the church; "glory" is Divine truth as it is in heaven; "to come by the way of the east into the house" means from the sun, where it is continually in its morning. (That "glory" is Divine truth as it is in heaven, see Arcana Coelestia 4809, 5922, 8267, 8427, 9429; that "the house of God" is heaven and the church in respect to good, and "temple" is the same in respect to truth, n. 3720; and that the "east," in the highest sense, is the Lord, because He is the sun of heaven, which is always in its rising and morning, consequently the "east" is the good of love from Him, see n. 3708, 5097, 9668)

(Odkazy: Ezekiel 43:1-2)


[7] In the same:

The angel afterwards brought me back to the entrance of the house, where behold, waters issuing out from under the threshold of the house towards the east, they shall descend into the plain and come towards the sea, being sent forth into the sea that the waters may be healed; whence it comes to pass that every living soul that creeps, whithersoever the rivers come, shall live, whence there are exceeding many fishes, because these waters shall come thither, and they are healed, that everything may live whither the river shall come (Ezekiel 47:1, 8, 9).

Here also, the influx of the Lord from His Divine Human with those who are of His kingdom and church is described by pure correspondences. By "waters issuing out from under the threshold of the house towards the east," Divine truth proceeding from the Lord and flowing in with those that are in the east, that is, that are in the good of love to Him, is described. "The waters shall descend into the plain" and "into the sea," and "thereby the waters of the sea are healed," signifies influx into the natural man and into the knowledges which are therein; the "fishes therefrom" signifies many scientific truths in the natural man; that "everything shall live whither the river shall come" signifies that they should have life from Divine truth. That such thing are hereby signified there, no one can see except from the internal sense of the Word, yet every single expression therein involves arcana of man's regeneration by the Lord; but what is involved in each expression here will he disclosed in explaining Revelation 22:1, 2, of Revelation, where like things are mentioned.

(Odkazy: Ezekiel 47:1-2, Ezekiel 47:8-9; Revelation 22:1-2)


[8] In David:

I have waited for Jehovah, my soul doth wait, my soul waiteth for the Lord more than the watchmen for the morning, the watchmen for the morning; for with Him is much redemption, and He will redeem Israel (Psalms 130:5-8).

Here the Lord's coming into the world, and His reception by those that are in the good of love are treated of. The Lord's coming is signified by "I have waited for Jehovah, my soul doth wait for the Lord, for with Him is much redemption, and He shall redeem Israel;" and His reception by those that are in the good of love is signified by "more than watchmen for the morning, the watchmen for the morning." Here "morning" in the highest sense signifies the Lord, and in the internal sense His kingdom and church; and "watchmen for the morning" signify those who wait for the Lord's corning, who are those that are in the good of love, since to those the Lord is "coming."

[9] That "morning" signifies the Lord's coming into the world and then a new church is evident from the following passages.

In Daniel:

Unto evening and morning, two thousand three hundred, then the holy (sanctum) shall be justified. The vision of the evening and the morning, which has been told, is truth (Daniel 8:14, 26). "Evening" signifies the last time of the former church, and "morning" the first time of the new church, thus the Lord's coming.

In Isaiah:

Crying to me from Seir, Watchman, 1 what of the night? watchman, what of the night? The watchman said, The morning cometh, and also the night (D an. Isaiah 21:11, 12).

Here also the Lord's coming is treated of; "night" is the last time of the former church, and "morning" the first of the new. (What is signified by "calling out of Seir," see Arcana Coelestia 4240, 4384.) In Ezekiel:

The end is come, the end is come, the morning is come upon thee, O inhabitant of the land; behold the day cometh, the morning is gone forth (Ezekiel 7:6, 7, 10).

Here likewise the Lord's coming and the end of the former church and the beginning of a new one are treated of. In Zephaniah, where similar things are meant:

Jehovah in the morning, in the morning, He shall bring His judgment to light, nor shall He fail (Zephaniah 3:5).

(Odkazy: Ezekiel 7:6-7; Isaiah 21:11-12)


[10] As "morning" signifies the Lord, His coming, also His kingdom and church, as also the good of love from Him, what is meant by "morning" in the following passages can be seen.

In David:

Cause me to hear Thy mercy in the morning (Psalms 143:8).

In the same:

I will sing aloud of Thy mercy in the morning (Psalms 59:16).

In the same:

O satisfy us in the morning with Thy mercy; that we may sing aloud and be glad all our days (Psalms 90:14).

In the same:

O Jehovah, in the morning shalt Thou hear my voice; in the morning I will set myself in order for Thee (Psalms 5:3).

In the same:

God is in the midst of her; God shall help him 2 at the turning of the morning (Psalms 46:5).

In the same:

O God, my God, in the morning do I seek Thee (Psalms 63:1).

In Isaiah:

In the day shalt thou make thy plant to grow, and in the morning shalt thou make thy seed to blossom (Isaiah 17:11).

In the same:

Jehovah is 3 their arm every morning (Isaiah 33:2).

In the same :

Jehovah 4 hath given me the tongue of the learned; he hath awakened me every morning (Isaiah 50:4).

In Jeremiah:

I speak unto you every morning (Jeremiah 7:13; 11:7; 25:3, 4). From the signification of "morning" it can be seen what is meant by the following:

That manna fell in the morning (Exodus 16:12, 13, 21).

That Jehovah descended in the morning from Mount Sinai (Exodus 19:16);

That the priest kindled wood upon the altar every morning and placed thereon the whole burnt-offering (Leviticus 6:12). Also what is involved in the command respecting the sacrifice of the passover:

Thou shalt sacrifice the passover at the going down of the sun. Then thou shalt eat it; and thou shalt turn in the morning and go into thy tents (Deuteronomy 16:6, 7).

"They should sacrifice the passover when the sun went down," because "the setting of the sun" signified the last time of the church; that "they should turn in the morning," signified the establishment of a new church, thus the Lord's coming. These things are cited that it may be known what is signified by the "morning star," which the Son of man would give, namely wisdom and intelligence from the Lord's Divine Human. And as those who receive wisdom and intelligence from the Lord also receive Him, for the Lord is in the wisdom and intelligence that are from Him, even so that He is the wisdom and intelligence with them, the Lord Himself also is called "the Morning Star" in Revelation:

I am the root and the offspring of David, the bright and Morning Star (Revelation 22:16).

He is likewise called a Star (Numbers 24:17).
