1 وشاخ يشوع. تقدم في الايام. فقال له الرب انت قد شخت. تقدمت في الايام. وقد بقيت ارض كثيرة جدا للامتلاك.

2 هذه هي الارض الباقية. كل دائرة الفلسطنيين وكل الجشوريين

3 من الشيحور الذي هو امام مصر الى تخم عقرون شمالا تحسب للكنعانيين اقطاب الفلسطينيين الخمسة الغزي والاشدودي والاشقلوني والجتّي والعقروني والعويين.

4 من التيمن كل ارض الكنعانيين ومغارة التي للصيدونيين الى افيق الى تخم الاموريين.

5 وارض الجبليين وكل لبنان نحو شروق الشمس من بعل جاد تحت جبل حرمون الى مدخل حماة.

6 جميع سكان الجبل من لبنان الى مسرفوت مايم جميع الصيدونيين. انا اطردهم من امام بني اسرائيل. انما اقسمها بالقرعة لاسرائيل ملكا كما أمرتك.

7 والآن اقسم هذه الارض ملكا للتسعة الاسباط ونصف سبط منسّى.

8 معهم اخذ الرأوبينيون والجاديون ملكهم الذي اعطاهم موسى في عبر الاردن نحو الشروق كما اعطاهم موسى عبد الرب

9 من عروعير التي على حافة وادي ارنون والمدينة التي في وسط الوادي وكل سهل ميدبا الى ديبون

10 وجميع مدن سيحون ملك الاموريين الذي ملك في حشبون الى تخم بني عمون

11 وجلعاد وتخوم الجشوريين والمعكيين وكل جبل حرمون وكل باشان الى سلخة

12 كل مملكة عوج في باشان الذي ملك في عشتاروث وفي اذرعي. هو بقي من بقية الرفائيين وضربهم موسى وطردهم.

13 ولم يطرد بنو اسرائيل الجشوريين والمعكيين فسكن الجشوري والمعكي في وسط اسرائيل الى هذا اليوم.

14 لكن لسبط لاوي لم يعط نصيبا. وقائد الرب اله اسرائيل هي نصيبه كما كلمه

15 واعطى موسى سبط بني رأوبين حسب عشائرهم.

16 فكان تخمهم من عروعير التي على حافة وادي ارنون والمدينة التي في وسط الوادي وكل السهل عند ميدبا

17 حشبون وجميع مدنها التي في السهل وديبون وباموت بعل وبيت بعل معون

18 ويهصة وقديموت وميفعة

19 وقريتايم وسبمة وصارث الشحر في جبل الوادي

20 وبيت فغور وسفوح الفسجة وبيت يشيموت

21 وكل مدن السهل وكل مملكة سيحون ملك الاموريين الذي ملك في حشبون الذي ضربه موسى مع رؤساء مديان أوي وراقم وصور وحور ورابع أمراء سيحون ساكني الارض.

22 وبلعام بن بعور العراف قتله بنو اسرائيل. بالسيف مع قتلاهم.

23 وكان تخم بني رأوبين الاردن وتخومه. هذا نصيب بني رأوبين حسب عشائرهم المدن وضياعها

24 واعطى موسى لسبط جاد بني جاد حسب عشائرهم.

25 فكان تخمهم يعزير وكل مدن جلعاد ونصف ارض بني عمون الى عروعير التي هي امام ربّة

26 ومن حشبون الى رامة المصفاة وبطونيم ومن محنايم الى تخم دبير.

27 وفي الوادي بيت هارام وبيت نمرة وسكوت وصافون بقية مملكة سيحون ملك حشبون الاردن وتخومه الى طرف بحر كنّروت في عبر الاردن نحو الشروق.

28 هذا نصيب بني جاد حسب عشائرهم المدن وضياعها

29 واعطى موسى لنصف سبط منسّى وكان لنصف سبط بني منسّى حسب عشائرهم.

30 وكان تخمهم من محنايم كل باشان كل مملكة عوج ملك باشان وكل حوّوث يائير التي في باشان ستين مدينة.

31 ونصف جلعاد وعشتاروث واذرعي مدن مملكة عوج في باشان لبني ماكير بن منسّى لنصف بني ماكير حسب عشائرهم.

32 فهذه هي التي قسمها موسى في عربات موآب في عبر اردن اريحا نحو الشروق.

33 واما سبط لاوي فلم يعطه موسى نصيبا. الرب اله اسرائيل هو نصيبهم كما كلمهم

Exploring the Meaning of Joshua 13      

Joshua 13: The start of the tribal territory allocations.

Now that Israel had conquered the land of Canaan, the Lord commanded Joshua to divide the land between the twelve tribes. The next seven chapters tell how the the land of Canaan was divided (see Swedenborg’s work, Arcana Caelestia 1413, to read more about the spiritual meaning).

Chapter 13 deals with the territories given to the tribes of Reuben, Gad and one half of Manasseh, all of which are on the other side of the river Jordan. Reuben was given the southern lands; Gad was given the extensive middle region, much of which is an area called Gilead; and half the tribe of Manasseh received the northern land which is on the other side of the Jordan.

It is also worth noting that the first few verses say much of the land remained to be conquered. However, at the end of chapter 11, we read that Joshua took the whole land as the Lord had commanded Moses.

This may seem contradictory, but spiritually it fits very well. In our regeneration, we aim to conquer our self-centred nature, and allow the Lord to rule us with his truth. This is spiritually ‘conquering the whole land’. But even so, our natural thoughts and desires sometimes rise up to trouble us, and these times are like the parts of the land that remain to be conquered. This is why we must recognize our complete dependence on the Lord (Arcana Caelestia 8326).

The Lord giving land as inheritance to each of the twelve tribes represents the way that He gives us our spiritual life. As we do the work of spiritual ‘conquering’ - living by our purpose to serve the Lord - we feel more and more that we can use our understanding of God and His Word in our actions every day.

The twelve tribes stand for the whole spectrum of what spiritual life involves, and each tribe relates to a specific quality of our spiritual living (Arcana Caelestia 3858). For example, we need to be discerning, positive, respectful of others, and so on. Each tribe has a sizeable area of the land, and is part of the integrity of the whole nation.

The territories given to Reuben, Gad and half of Manasseh are not part of Canaan, but they are linked to it. These areas represent our outward life: the way we work, live, rest, and relate with other people. This is the ‘casing’ of our spiritual life, and it is essential.

The tribe of Reuben – the eldest son of Jacob – stands for our initial need to see the truths from the Lord in the Word. By ‘seeing’ we mean meeting them, looking carefully, being attentive, coming to understand what they ask of us, and realising how important they are. It is not a vague impression that the Lord’s teachings are important, but a real first step for us (Arcana Caelestia 3866).

The tribe of Gad stands for our ability to see that knowledge and truth need to be used to perform good works. Gad’s name means ‘a troop,’ calling to mind soldiers marching in formation to go and sort things out properly. This is something we can apply to ourselves and to the world around us. We just need to watch that it doesn’t get too heavy-handed (See Swedenborg’s work, Apocalypse Explained 435[7]).

The tribe of Manasseh represents the spiritual good which supports our will to live a life which is just, fair and honourable because it is based on God. In fact, Manasseh – which means ‘forgetfulness’ – stands for our need to remember that ‘my will’ is really ‘the Lord’s will for me’. Our will needs to be focused on outward life and also inwardly open to the Lord, which is why half of Manasseh has land beyond the Jordan and half has land within Canaan (Arcana Caelestia 5353).
