1 واجتمع كل جماعة بني اسرائيل في شيلوه ونصبوا هناك خيمة الاجتماع. وأخضعت الارض قدامهم.

2 وبقي من بني اسرائيل ممن لم يقسموا نصيبهم سبعة اسباط.

3 فقال يشوع لبني اسرائيل حتى متى انتم متراخون عن الدخول لامتلاك الارض التي اعطاكم اياها الرب اله آبائكم.

4 هاتوا ثلاثة رجال من كل سبط فارسلهم فيقوموا ويسيروا في الارض ويكتبوها بحسب انصبتهم ثم يأتوا اليّ.

5 وليقسموها الى سبعة اقسام فيقيم يهوذا على تخمه من الجنوب ويقيم بيت يوسف على تخمهم من الشمال.

6 وانتم تكتبون الارض سبعة اقسام ثم تأتون اليّ هنا فالقي لكم قرعة ههنا امام الرب الهنا.

7 لانه ليس للاويين قسم في وسطكم لان كهنوت الرب هو نصيبهم وجاد ورأوبين ونصف سبط منسّى قد اخذوا نصيبهم في عبر الاردن نحو الشروق الذي اعطاهم اياه موسى عبد الرب.

8 فقام الرجال وذهبوا. واوصى يشوع الذاهبين لكتابة الارض قائلا. اذهبوا وسيروا في الارض واكتبوها ثم ارجعوا اليّ فالقي لكم هنا قرعة امام الرب في شيلوه.

9 فسار الرجال وعبروا في الارض وكتبوها حسب المدن سبعة اقسام في سفر ثم جاءوا الى يشوع الى المحلّة في شيلوه.

10 فالقى لهم يشوع قرعة في شيلوه امام الرب وهناك قسم يشوع الارض لبني اسرائيل حسب فرقهم

11 وطلعت قرعة سبط بني بنيامين حسب عشائرهم. وخرج تخم قرعتهم بين بني يهوذا وبني يوسف.

12 وكان تخمهم من جهة الشمال من الاردن. وصعد التخم الى جانب اريحا من الشمال وصعد في الجبل غربا وكانت مخارجه عند برية بيت آون.

13 وعبر التخم من هناك الى لوز الى جانب لوز الجنوبي. هي بيت ايل. ونزل التخم الى عطاروت ادّار على الجبل الذي الى جنوب بيت حورون السفلى.

14 وامتد التخم ودار الى جهة الغرب جنوبا من الجبل الذي مقابل بيت حورون جنوبا. وكانت مخارجه عند قرية بعل. هي قرية يعاريم. مدينة لبني يهوذا. هذه هي جهة الغرب.

15 وجهة الجنوب هي اقصى قرية يعاريم وخرج التخم غربا وخرج الى منبع مياه نفتوح.

16 ونزل التخم الى طرف الجبل الذي مقابل وادي ابن هنوم الذي في وادي الرفائيين شمالا ونزل الى وادي هنوم الى جانب اليبوسيين من الجنوب ونزل الى عين روجل

17 وامتد من الشمال وخرج الى عين شمس وخرج الى جليلوت التي مقابل عقبة ادميم ونزل الى حجر بوهن بن رأوبين

18 وعبر الى الكتف مقابل العربة شمالا ونزل الى العربة.

19 وعبر التخم الى جانب بيت حجلة شمالا وكانت مخارج التخم عند لسان بحر الملح شمالا الى طرف الاردن جنوبا هذا هو تخم الجنوب.

20 والاردن يتخمه من جهة الشرق. فهذا هو نصيب بني بنيامين مع تخومه مستديرا حسب عشائرهم

21 وكانت مدن سبط بني بنيامين حسب عشائرهم اريحا وبيت حجلة ووادي قصيص

22 وبيت العربة وصمارايم وبيت ايل

23 والعوّيم والفارة وعفرة

24 وكفر العموني والعفني وجبع ست عشرة مدينة مع ضياعها.

25 جبعون والرامة وبئيروت

26 والمصفاة والكفيرة والموصة

27 وراقم ويرفئيل وترالة

28 وصيلع وآلف واليبوسي. هي اورشليم. وجبعة وقرية. اربع عشرة مدينة مع ضياعها. هذا هو نصيب بني بنيامين حسب عشائرهم

  

Exploring the Meaning of يشوع 18      

Napsal(a) Rev. Julian Duckworth

Joshua 18: The rest of the land is divided up among the 7 remaining tribes, and the tribe of Benjamin receives its lot.

After several chapters covering the allocation of the land for Reuben, Gad, Judah, Ephraim and Manasseh, there were still seven tribes to be provided for. Before this was done, Joshua gathered these seven tribes together and told them to choose three men from each tribe. These men went and surveyed the region, divided up all the land and cities into seven parts, and recorded everything in a book. Then they came back to Joshua, who cast lots to decide where the seven remaining tribes would live.

The first of the seven allocations was for the tribe of Benjamin. Benjamin was the youngest of the sons of Jacob, and he was a full brother to Joseph. Their mother, Rachel, whom Jacob had loved so much, died giving birth to Benjamin.

The city of Jerusalem was first allocated to Benjamin, but in time became more associated with Judah. In fact, these were the two tribes which later made up the kingdom of Judah, as opposed to the ten northern tribes forming the kingdom of Israel. Benjamin’s territory included the cities of Jericho, Ai and Gibeon, all of which had been significant soon after Israel crossed the River Jordan. Saul, the first king of Israel, was a Benjamite.

This story about surveying the land represents our need to know things as they truly are. This could mean many things: for example, exploring the idea of heaven, or hell, or life in this world, or a spiritual teaching such as providence. It might be to learn about justice and compassion, or true freedom. It may be our need to look honestly within ourselves and recognize some of our self-centred ways (see Swedenborg’s work, Arcana Caelestia 1612).

The Israelite’s findings about the land were recorded in a book, which really would have been a scroll. This is like our ‘book of life’, in which everything about us down to the least detail is preserved so that in eternity, we shall know who we are (see Swedenborg’s Apocalypse Explained 199). Joshua drew lots so the Lord’s will would be clear to the people of Israel.

The spiritual meaning of Benjamin needs some careful explanation. Technically, it means ’the spiritual of the celestial’, and this is our ability to understand the reason for the most loving experiences we can have. It is heightened thinking joining with heightened feeling. Benjamin was the youngest son, the special brother of Joseph, who stands for the Lord (Arcana Caelestia 4585).

With this in mind, it is useful to know that Bethlehem, the town where Jesus was born, lay in the territory of Benjamin. Bethlehem’s name means ‘house of bread’ giving us the idea of nourishment for our physical and our spiritual lives. God came into the world to bring us the food of heaven and nourishment from the Word, so that we may fight our evils and choose what is good (Arcana Caelestia 6247, 4594).
