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။

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.

630. Verse 2. And the court which is without the temple cast out, and measure it not, signifies that the external of the Word, and thence of the church and worship, is not to be explored. This is evident from the signification of the "court," as being the external of the Word, and thence of the church and of worship. The "court" has this signification because the "temple" signifies heaven and the church in respect to Divine truth, as was said in the article above; therefore the "court" which was "outside the temple or in front of the temple" signifies the first or lowest heaven. For the "temple," regarded in itself, signifies the higher heavens; that is, the "adytum," where the ark of the covenant was, signified the inmost or third heaven, and "the temple outside of the adytum" signified the middle or second heaven; therefore the "court" signified the lowest or first heaven; and what signifies heaven signifies also the church, for the church is the Lord's heaven on the earth; and what signifies the church, signifies also the Word and worship, for the Word is the Divine truth, from which are heaven and the church, and worship is according to Divine truth, which is the Word. From this it is that the "court" signifies the external or ultimate of heaven and the church, and also the external or ultimate of the Word and of worship.

(Odkazy: Revelation 11:2)


[2] The Word and worship are altogether as heaven and the church are; for as there are three heavens, so in the Word there are three distinct senses: the inmost sense, which is called the celestial sense, is for the inmost or third heaven; the middle sense, which is called the spiritual sense, is for the middle or second heaven; and the ultimate sense, which is called the celestial-natural and spiritual-natural sense, is for the lowest or first heaven. These three senses, besides the natural which is for the world, are in the Word and in all its particulars; and as the three heavens have the Word and each heaven is in its own sense of the Word, and from this is their heaven and also their worship, it follows that what signifies heaven signifies also the Word and worship. This is why the "court" signifies the external of the Word, and thence the external of the church and of worship.

[3] Moreover, it is to be known that the temple had two courts, one without the temple, and the other within, and "the court without the temple" signifies the entrance itself into heaven and into the church, in which are those who are being introduced into heaven; while "the court within the temple" represented the lowest heaven. It is similar with the church, also with the Word and with worship; for "the court without the temple" signifies the external of the Word, that is, the Word such as it is in the natural sense, which is for the world, by which man is introduced into its spiritual sense, in which the angels of heaven are. But what is properly signified by each court, the inner and the outer, will be told in what follows. Also, why it is here said that "the court without the temple is to be cast out, and not measured," will be told in the following article, where it is told what is signified by "it is given to the nations."

[4] From this it can now in some measure be seen what is signified in the Word by "court" and by "courts" in the following passages. In Moses:

Thou shalt make the court of the tabernacle at the corner of the south towards the south, hangings for the courts; twenty pillars, twenty bases, the hooks of the pillars and the fillets of silver, the gate of the court with the veil; its length a hundred cubits from the south to the north, and its breadth fifty from the east to the west (Exodus 27:9-18).

This court was the court of the Tent of meeting, which likewise represented and signified the lowest or first heaven; for "the Tent of meeting" represented heaven; its inmost, where the ark was, over which was the mercy seat, represented the inmost or third heaven; the law in the ark, the Lord Himself as to Divine truth or the Word; and the tent without the veil, where was the table for the loaves, the altar of incense, and the lamp stand, represented the middle or second heaven; and the court, the lowest or first heaven. (That the three heavens were represented by that tent may be seen in Arcana Coelestia, n. Arcana Coelestia 3478, 9457, 9457, 9481, 9485; but what is signified in particular by the court, and by all things pertaining to it, may be seen, n. 9741-9775.)

[5] As the court represented the lowest heaven, and thence also the external of the church, of the Word, and of worship:

The residue of the meal offerings and of the sacrifices for sin were eaten by Aaron and his sons in the court (Leviticus 6:16, 26).

"Eating in the court" these sanctified things signified appropriating to oneself the goods of the church that were signified by the meal offerings and these sacrifices; and all appropriation of holy things is effected by ultimates, for except through ultimates there can be no appropriation of interior holy things.

[6] But the courts of the temple are thus described in the first book of Kings:

Solomon made a court before the front of the house of the temple. And afterwards he built the inner court, three layers of hewn stones and a row of hewn cedar (1 Kings 6:3, 36).

The temple in like manner represented heaven and the church; the adytum, where the ark was, represented the inmost or third heaven, also the church with those who are in inmosts, which is called the celestial church; the temple outside the adytum represented the middle or second heaven, also the church with those who are in the middle, which is called the internal spiritual church; the inner court represented the lowest or first heaven, also the church with those who are in ultimates, which is called the internal-natural church; while the outer court represented the entrance into heaven.

[7] And as the temple in the highest sense signified the Lord in relation to the Divine Human, so also in relation to Divine truth, thence the temple also signifies Divine truth proceeding from the Lord, consequently the Word, for that is the Divine truth in the church. That the Lord's Divine Human is signified by the temple is evident from the Lord's words where He says:

Destroy this temple, and in three days I will raise it up; and He spake of the temple of His body (John 2:18-23).

That the "temple" signifies the church is evident from these words of the Lord:

That there shall not be left of the temple stone upon stone that shall not be thrown down (Matthew 24:1, 2; Luke 21:5-7).

These words mean that every Divine truth, consequently everything of the church, is to perish; for the end of the church, which is called the consummation of the age, is here treated of.

(Odkazy: John 2:18-22; Matthew 24:1-2)


[8] That there were two courts built, an inner and an outer, and there little chambers, porticos, or piazzas, and many other things, can be seen from the description of them in Ezekiel:

The angel brought me to the outer court, where, behold, there were chambers and a pavement made for the court round about, thirty chambers upon the pavement, which he measured as to the length and the breadth; and he also measured the bedchambers, the portico, the gate, everything as to length and breadth (Ezekiel 40:17-22, 40:31, 40:34, et seq.; Ezekiel 42:1-14).

And of the inner court it is said in the same:

That he measured the inner court, the gates thereof towards the north, the east, and the south; the portico, the steps with the ascents, the bedchambers, the chambers of the singers, the upper lintels (Ezek. 40:23-31, 40:44, et seq.).

And in Jeremiah:

In the chamber of Gemaliah 1 the scribe, in the upper court, at the entrance of the gate of the new house (Jeremiah 36:10).

In the prophet Ezekiel, from chap. 40 to chap. 48, a new city, a new temple, and a new earth, are treated of, which signify a New Church that was to be established by the Lord; and the "chambers," the "bedchambers," the "porticos," and the rest, signify such things as belong to the church, its doctrine and worship; and their dimensions signify their quality (as was said and shown in the article above). But this is not the place to explain what is signified by the particulars; only that "courts" signify the external things of heaven and of the church, and thence the externals of the Word and of worship. That the externals of these are signified by the "courts" is evident from this alone, that the "temple" in general signifies heaven and the church, therefore the three divisions of the temple, namely, the courts, the temple itself, and the adytum, signify the three heavens according to their degrees. (Of what nature the three heavens are according to their degrees, see in the work on Heaven and Hell, n. 29-40 .)

(Odkazy: Ezekiel 40:1, Ezekiel 41:1, 42:1, 43:1, 44:1, 45:1, 46:1, 47:1, 48:1)


[9] That "the temple and the courts" signify heaven and the church can be seen more fully from these words in Ezekiel:

The spirit raised me up and brought me into the inner court of the temple, when behold, the glory of Jehovah filled the house; and I heard one speaking unto me out of the house, saying, Son of man, the place of My throne, and the place of the soles of My feet, where I will dwell in the midst of the sons of Israel forever (Ezekiel 43:4-7).

That these "courts" signify the lowest heaven, or the external of the church, can be seen from its being said that "he was brought into the court, and thence saw the house filled with the glory of Jehovah," "the glory of Jehovah" signifying Divine truth, which constitutes heaven and the church; also afterwards, that that house was "the place of the throne of Jehovah, and the place of the soles of His feet, where He will dwell in the midst of the sons of Israel forever." That "the throne of Jehovah" means heaven may be seen above (n. 253, 297, 343, 460, 462, 477, 482); and that "the place of the soles of the feet of Jehovah" means the church, see also above n. 606; the "sons of Israel" mean all who are of the Lord's church, consequently "to dwell with them forever" signifies the unceasing presence of the Lord with them.

[10] In the same:

The glory of Jehovah lifted itself up from above the cherub over the threshold of the house, and the house was filled with the cloud. And the cloud filled the inner court. And the court was full of the brightness of the glory of Jehovah; and the voice of the wings of the cherubim was heard even to the outer court (Ezekiel 10:3, 4, 5).

The "cherubim" seen by the prophet represented the Lord in relation to providence and guard that He be not approached except through good of love; consequently the "cherubim" signify the higher heavens, particularly the inmost heaven, for this guard is there (see above n. 277, 313, 322, 362, 370, 462); therefore the "house that was filled with the cloud" signifies heaven and the church; the "inner court," which the cloud also filled, signifies the lowest heaven; and the "outer court," as far as which the voice of the wings of the cherubs was heard, signifies the entrance into heaven, which is specifically in the natural world, and afterwards in the world of spirits. For through the church in the world, and afterwards through the world of spirits, man enters into heaven. (What the world of spirits is, see in the work on Heaven and Hell 421-431seq.) But the "cloud" and "the brightness of the glory of Jehovah" signify the Divine truth proceeding from the Lord.

[11] From this it can now be seen what is signified by "courts" in the following passages. In David:

Blessed is he whom thou choosest and causest to approach, he shall dwell in Thy courts; we shall be satisfied with the goodness of Thy house, with the holiness of Thy temple (Psalms 65:4).

This signifies that those who are in charity, or in spiritual affection, will live in heaven, and there will be in intelligence and wisdom from Divine truth and Divine good; "the chosen" (or he whom thou choosest) signifies those who are in love towards the neighbor or in charity; "causest to approach" signifies spiritual affection or love, for so far as man is in that love or that affection, so far he is with the Lord, for everyone approaches Him according to that love; "to dwell in courts" signifies to live in heaven, "to dwell" meaning to live, and "courts" meaning heaven; "to be satisfied with the goodness of the house" signifies to be in wisdom from Divine good; and "to be satisfied with the holiness of the temple" signifies to be in intelligence from Divine truth, and from both to enjoy heavenly joy; "the house of God" signifies heaven and the church in respect to Divine good, and the "temple" heaven and the church in respect to Divine truth, and "holiness" is predicated of spiritual good, which is truth.

[12] In the same:

A day in Thy courts is better than thousands, I have chosen to stand at the door in the house of my God (Psalms 84:10).

"Courts" here signify the first or lowest heaven, through which there is entrance into the higher heavens; therefore it is added, "I have chosen to stand at the door in the house of my God." In the same:

Give to Jehovah the glory of His name, bring an offering, and come into His courts (Psalms 96:8).

In the same:

Praise ye the name of Jehovah, praise, O ye servants of Jehovah, who stand in the house of Jehovah, in the courts of the house of our God (Psalms 135:1, 2).

In the same:

How amiable are Thy dwellings, O Jehovah of Hosts; my soul hath desired, yea is consumed for the courts of Jehovah (Psalms 84:1, 2).

In the same:

Come into His gates with confession, into His courts with praise, confess ye unto Him, bless His name (Psalms 100:4).

In the same:

I will pay my vows unto Jehovah before all His people, in the courts of the house of Jehovah, in the midst of thee, O Jerusalem (Psalms 116:14, 18, 19).

In the same:

The righteous shall flourish as the palm tree, he shall grow as a cedar in Lebanon. Planted in the house of Jehovah they shall spring forth in the courts of our God (Psalms 92:12, 13).

That in these passages "courts" mean heaven, in particular the lowest heaven and the church, can be seen without explanation.

(Odkazy: Psalms 84:1-2, 92:12-13, 116:18-19, 135:1-2)


[13] Likewise in the following passages. In Isaiah:

They shall gather the corn and the new wine, they shall eat and shall praise Jehovah, and they that shall bring it together shall drink in the courts of My holiness (Isaiah 62:9).

"They shall gather the corn and the new wine" signifies instruction in the goods and truths of doctrine and of the church; "they shall eat and shall praise Jehovah" signifies appropriation and the worship of the Lord; "they that shall bring it together shall drink in the courts of My holiness" signifies the enjoyment of Divine truth, and the consequent happiness in the heavens.

[14] In Joel:

Let the priests, the ministers of Jehovah, weep between the court and the altar, and let them say, Spare Thy people, O Jehovah (Joel 2:17);

"weeping between the court and the altar" signifies lamentation over the vastation of Divine truth and Divine good in the church; for the "court" has a similar signification as the "temple," namely, the church in respect to Divine truth, and the "altar" signifies the church in respect to Divine good; therefore "between the court and the altar" signifies the marriage of good and truth, which constitutes heaven and the church; and "to weep" signifies lamentation over its vastation. "Courts" also elsewhere in the Word signify the ultimates of heaven, also the externals of the church, of the Word, and of worship (as in Isaiah 1:12; Zechariah 3:7).
