1 "เพราะ ดูเถิด ในวันเหล่านั้นและในเวลานั้น เมื่อเราให้ยูดาห์และเยรูซาเล็มกลับสู่สภาพเดิม

2 เราจะรวบรวมบรรดาประชาชาติทั้งสิ้น และนำเขาลงมาที่หุบเขาเยโฮชาฟัท และเราจะเข้าสู่การพิพากษากับเขาที่นั่นด้วยเรื่องประชาชนของเรา คืออิสราเอลมรดกของเรา เพราะว่าเขาได้กระจายชนชาติของเราไปท่ามกลางประชาชาติ และได้แบ่งแผ่นดินของเรา

3 และได้จับสลากเอาประชาชนของเรา และให้เด็กผู้ชายเป็นข้าของหญิงโสเภณี และขายเด็กผู้หญิงไปซื้อเหล้าองุ่น และดื่ม

4 โอ ไทระและไซดอน และประเทศฟีลิสเตียทุกแคว้นเอ๋ย เจ้าจะเอาอะไรกับเรา เจ้าจะแก้แค้นเราหรือ ถ้าเจ้าสนองเราอยู่ เราจะตอบสนองการกระทำของเจ้าเหนือศีรษะของเจ้าอย่างฉับพลันและอย่างรวดเร็ว

5 เพราะเจ้าได้เอาเงินของเราและทองคำของเราไป และเอาทรัพย์สมบัติมั่งคั่งของเราไปยังบรรดาวิหารของเจ้า

6 เจ้าได้ขายประชาชนยูดาห์และเยรูซาเล็มให้แก่พวกกรีก ถอนเขาไปไกลจากแดนเมืองของเขา

7 ดูเถิด เราจะกระตุ้นเขาจากสถานที่ซึ่งเจ้าขายเขาไปนั้น เราจะตอบสนองการกระทำของเจ้าบนศีรษะของเจ้าเอง

8 เราจะขายบุตรชายและบุตรสาวของเจ้าไว้ในมือของคนยูดาห์ และเขาทั้งหลายจะขายต่อไปยังคนเสบา แก่ประชาชาติหนึ่งที่อยู่ห่างไกลออกไป เพราะว่าพระเยโฮวาห์ลั่นพระวาจาแล้ว"

9 จงประกาศข้อความต่อไปนี้ให้นานาประชาชาติทราบว่า จงเตรียมทำการรบ จงปลุกใจชายฉกรรจ์ทั้งหลาย ให้พลรบทั้งสิ้นเข้ามาใกล้ ให้เขาขึ้นมาเถิด

10 จงตีผาลไถนาของเจ้าให้เป็นดาบ และตีขอลิดของเจ้าให้เป็นทวน ให้คนอ่อนแอพูดว่า "ฉันเป็นนักรบ"

11 บรรดาประชาชาติทั้งสิ้นเอ๋ย จงรวมกันอยู่ล้อมรอบ จงรีบมาเถิด จงเรียกประชุมกันที่นั่น ข้าแต่พระเยโฮวาห์ ขอทรงนำนักรบของพระองค์ลงมา

12 ให้บรรดาประชาชาติตื่นตัวและขึ้นมายังหุบเขาเยโฮชาฟัท เพราะที่นั่นเราจะนั่งพิพากษาบรรดาประชาชาติทั้งสิ้นที่อยู่ล้อมรอบ

13 จงเอาเคียวเกี่ยวเถิด เพราะถึงฤดูเกี่ยวแล้ว เข้าไปซิ ย่ำเลย เพราะบ่อย่ำองุ่นกำลังเต็ม บ่อเก็บน้ำองุ่นล้นแล้ว เพราะว่าความชั่วของเขาทั้งหลายมากมายนัก

14 มวลชน มวลชนในหุบเขาแห่งคำตัดสิน เพราะวันแห่งพระเยโฮวาห์ใกล้เข้ามาแล้วในหุบเขาแห่งคำตัดสิน

15 ดวงอาทิตย์และดวงจันทร์จะมืดไป ดวงดาวจะอับแสง

16 พระเยโฮวาห์จะทรงเปล่งพระสิงหนาทจากศิโยน ทรงเปล่งพระสุรเสียงของพระองค์จากเยรูซาเล็ม และฟ้าสวรรค์กับพิภพก็จะหวั่นไหว แต่พระเยโฮวาห์จะทรงเป็นความหวังแห่งประชาชนของพระองค์ เป็นที่กำบังเข้มแข็งของคนอิสราเอล

17 "ดังนั้นเจ้าทั้งหลายจะได้รู้ว่า เราคือพระเยโฮวาห์พระเจ้าของเจ้า ผู้ประทับในศิโยน ภูเขาบริสุทธิ์ของเรา แล้วเยรูซาเล็มจะเป็นเมืองบริสุทธิ์ จะไม่มีคนต่างด้าวผ่านเมืองนั้นไปอีกเลย

18 และอยู่มาในวันนั้นจะมีน้ำองุ่นใหม่หยดจากภูเขา และมีน้ำนมไหลมาจากเนินเขา และห้วยทั้งสิ้นของยูดาห์จะมีน้ำไหล และน้ำพุจะมาจากพระนิเวศของพระเยโฮวาห์ และรดหุบเขาชิทธิม

19 อียิปต์จะกลายเป็นที่รกร้าง และเอโดมจะกลายเป็นถิ่นทุรกันดารร้าง เพราะเหตุความรุนแรงที่กระทำต่อชนชาติยูดาห์ เพราะว่าเขากระทำให้โลหิตที่ปราศจากความผิดตกในแผ่นดินของเขา

20 แต่ยูดาห์จะมีคนอาศัยอยู่เป็นนิตย์ และเยรูซาเล็มจะมีผู้อาศัยอยู่ทุกชั่วอายุ

21 เราจะชำระเลือดของเขาซึ่งยังมิได้รับการชำระ เพราะพระเยโฮวาห์ทรงสถิตในศิโยน"

Inherit      

← Předchozí   Další →

This is a wall-painting at the Elston Chapel in Nottinghamshire, England. The photograph is part of the Geograph Project, created to collect images of historic sites in the U.K. and Ireland.

In Biblical times, possessions passed from fathers to sons, a patriarchal system that would not be accepted in today's society – but one that is important in its spiritual meaning.

A "father" represents the Lord, and indeed the Lord is like a father to all of us. What we "inherit" from the Lord are his "possessions": the love of being good which He can implant in us.

The Lord created us to be separate from Himself, so that He could love us. He thus allows us to act contrary to His will – to want what is evil and to believe what is false. The Writings say, though, that he cannot inhabit those things in us; He cannot live inside us through those things. When we accept Him, though – by learning what's true, and determining to live according to it – we can let Him place inside us a love for what is good, which He can inhabit, and through which He can live inside us. That is our "inheritance."

2658. 'For the son of this servant-girl shall not inherit together with my son, with Isaac' means that the merely human rational could not possess the same life as the Divine Rational itself, neither as to truth nor as to good. This is clear from the meaning of 'inheriting' as possessing the life of another, to be dealt with immediately below; from the meaning of 'the son of a servant-girl' as the merely human rational as to truth and as to good, dealt with in 2657; and from the meaning of 'my son, Isaac' as the Divine Rational as to truth, meant by 'my son', and as to good, meant by 'Isaac', dealt with in 2623, 2630. That 'Isaac' is the Divine Rational as to good is clear from verses 6-7 (in 2640, 2641, 2643) - from the meaning of 'laughter', from which he was named, as the affection for truth, or good that flows from truth. From this it is evident that 'the son of this servant-girl shall not inherit together with my son, with Isaac' means that the merely human rational cannot possess the same life as the Divine Rational, neither as to truth nor as to good. Its inability to possess the same life is clear from the single consideration that the Divine is life itself, and this being so possesses life within Itself, whereas the merely human is only an organ for life and that being so does not possess life in itself.

(Odkazy: Arcana Coelestia 2640-2641)


[2] Once it had become Divine the Lord's Human was no longer an organ or recipient of life; it was now Life itself, the same as that of Jehovah Himself. It had this life at the start from its very conception from Jehovah, as is plainly evident from the Lord's own words in John,

As the Father has life in Himself, so He has granted the Son to have life in Himself. John 5:26.

The Divine Human is what is called 'the Son', 1729, 2159, 2628. In the same gospel,

In Him was life, and the life was the light of men. John 1:4.

In the same gospel,

Jesus said, I am the way, the truth, and the life. John 14:6.

In the same gospel,

Jesus said, I am the resurrection and the life; he who believes in Me, though he die, will live. John 11:25.

In the same gospel,

The bread of God is that which 1 comes down out of heaven and gives life to the world. John 6:33.

Man however is not life but an organ or recipient of it, see 2021, and in various places elsewhere. From this it may be evident that when the Lord was made Jehovah even as to the Human, that which was not life in itself, that is, the merely human, was banished. This is the meaning of the statement that the son of a servant-girl could not inherit together with the son Isaac.

[3] When 'inheriting' in the internal sense has reference to the Lord it means possessing the Father's life, and so possessing life within Himself; and when it has reference to men it means possessing the Lord's life, that is, receiving life from the Lord. This is clear from many places in the Word. Possessing life in Himself is the very Being (Esse) of life, which is Jehovah, whereas possessing the Lord's life, or receiving life from the Lord, is accepting the Lord in love and faith. And because such persons abide in the Lord and are the Lord's they are called His heirs and sons.

[4] In the Old Testament Word 'inheritance' is used to refer both to what is celestial, or good, and to what is spiritual, or truth, though what is celestial is expressed by one word, what is spiritual by another. The first word may be rendered as 'possessing by inheritance', but the second as 'inheriting'. In the original language the first word also implies possession, but the second a derivation from such possession, in the way that celestial and spiritual are related to each other, or good and truth are related. In the present verse, where 'Isaac' represents the Lord's Divine Rational or Divine Human, the word describing possession by right of inheritance is used, for the Lord's Divine Human is sole heir and possessor, as He also teaches in the parable recorded in Matthew 21:33, 37-38; Mark 12:7; Luke 20:14; and in various places declares that all that is the Father's is His.

(Odkazy: Luke 20:13-14; Mark 12:6-7)


[5] When 'possessing by inheritance' and 'inheriting' in the Word have reference to men, they mean receiving life from the Lord, and therefore receiving eternal life or heaven, for only those who receive the Lord's life receive heaven. This is clear in John,

He who overcomes will receive all things by inheritance, and I will be his God and he will be My Son. Revelation 21:7.

In Matthew,

Everyone who has left houses or brothers or sisters for My name's sake will receive a hundredfold and will be allotted the inheritance of eternal life. Matthew 19:29; 25:43; Mark 10:17; Luke 18:18.

Here heaven is called 'eternal life', elsewhere simply 'life', as in Matthew 18:8-9; 19:17; John 3:36; 5:24, 29, the reason being that the Lord is life itself, and anyone who receives His life is in heaven.

(Odkazy: Matthew 25:34)


[6] In David,

God will save Zion and will build the cities of Judah; and they will dwell there and possess it by inheritance; and the seed of His servants will inherit it, and those loving His name will dwell in it. Psalms 69:35-36.

Here 'possessing by inheritance' has reference to those in whom celestial love exists, 'inheriting' to those in whom spiritual love exists. In Isaiah,

He who trusts in Me will inherit the land, and will possess by inheritance My holy mountain. Isaiah 57:13.

Here the meaning is similar.

[7] In Moses,

I will bring you to the land over which I lifted up My hand to give it to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, and I will give it to you as a hereditary possession. Exodus 6:8.

In the sense of the letter these words mean that the land of Canaan was to be granted to them as a hereditary possession, which did in fact happen. But in the internal sense they mean that heaven was to be granted to those in whom love to and faith in the Lord were present, for as the Lord is represented by 'Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob' so are love itself and faith itself meant by them, and consequently people in whom love and faith are present, and who accordingly abide in the Lord. These are also meant by Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob with whom many will recline at table in the kingdom of heaven, in Matthew 8:11; for those who are in heaven are completely unaware of Abraham, Isaac, or Jacob, and know only of what is represented and meant by them. And the same goes for 'reclining at table (or eating) with them'. For all names mentioned in the Word mean real things, see 1224, 1264, 1876, 1888, and the land of Canaan means the heavenly Canaan or heaven, 1585, 1607, 1866, which is also referred to simply as 'the land', 1413, 1607, 1733, 2571. So too in Matthew,

Blessed are the meek, for they will receive the inheritance of the land. Matthew 5:5.
