1 وخان بنو اسرائيل خيانة في الحرام فاخذ عخان بن كرمي بن زبدي بن زارح من سبط يهوذا من الحرام فحمي غضب الرب على بني اسرائيل

2 وارسل يشوع رجالا من اريحا الى عاي التي عند بيت آون شرقي بيت ايل وكلمهم قائلا. اصعدوا تجسّسوا الارض. فصعد الرجال وتجسّسوا عاي.

3 ثم رجعوا الى يشوع وقالوا له لا يصعد كل الشعب بل يصعد نحو الفي رجل او ثلاثة آلاف رجل ويضربوا عاي. لا تكلف كل الشعب الى هناك لانهم قليلون.

4 فصعد من الشعب الى هناك نحو ثلاثة آلاف رجل. وهربوا امام اهل عاي.

5 فضرب منهم اهل عاي نحو ستة وثلاثين رجلا ولحقوهم من امام الباب الى شباريم وضربوهم في المنحدر. فذاب قلب الشعب وصار مثل الماء.

6 فمزّق يشوع ثيابه وسقط على وجهه الى الارض امام تابوت الرب الى المساء هو وشيوخ اسرائيل ووضعوا ترابا على رؤوسهم.

7 وقال يشوع آه يا سيد الرب لماذا عبّرت هذا الشعب الاردن تعبيرا لكي تدفعنا الى يد الاموريين ليبيدونا. ليتنا ارتضينا وسكنّا في عبر الاردن.

8 اسألك يا سيد. ماذا اقول بعدما حوّل اسرائيل قفاه امام اعدائه.

9 فيسمع الكنعانيون وجميع سكان الارض ويحيطون بنا ويقرضون اسمنا من الارض. وماذا تصنع لاسمك العظيم

10 فقال الرب ليشوع قم. لماذا انت ساقط على وجهك.

11 قد اخطأ اسرائيل بل تعدّوا عهدي الذي امرتهم به بل اخذوا من الحرام بل سرقوا بل انكروا بل وضعوا في امتعتهم.

12 فلم يتمكّن بنو اسرائيل للثبوت امام اعدائهم. يديرون قفاهم امام اعدائهم لانهم محرومون ولا اعود اكون معكم ان لم تبيدوا الحرام من وسطكم.

13 قم قدس الشعب وقل تقدسوا للغد. لانه هكذا قال الرب اله اسرائيل. في وسطك حرام يا اسرائيل فلا تتمكن للثبوت امام اعدائك حتى تنزعوا الحرام من وسطكم.

14 فتتقدمون في الغد باسباطكم ويكون ان السبط الذي ياخذه الرب يتقدم بعشائره والعشيرة التي ياخذها الرب تتقدم ببيوتها والبيت الذي يأخذه الرب يتقدم برجاله.

15 ويكون الماخوذ بالحرام يحرق بالنار هو وكل ما له لانه تعدّى عهد الرب ولانه عمل قباحة في اسرائيل

16 فبكر يشوع في الغد وقدم اسرائيل باسباطه فاخذ سبط يهوذا.

17 ثم قدم قبيلة يهوذا فاخذت عشيرة الزارحيين. ثم قدم عشيرة الزارحيين برجالهم فاخذ زبدي

18 فقدم بيته برجاله فاخذ عخان بن كرمي بن زبدي بن زارح من سبط يهوذا.

19 فقال يشوع لعخان يا ابني اعط الآن مجدا للرب اله اسرائيل واعترف له واخبرني الآن ماذا عملت لا تخف عني.

20 فاجاب عخان يشوع وقال حقا اني قد اخطأت الى الرب اله اسرائيل وصنعت كذا وكذا.

21 رأيت في الغنيمة رداء شنعاريا نفيسا ومئتي شاقل فضة ولسان ذهب وزنه خمسون شاقلا فاشتهيتها واخذتها. وها هي مطمورة في الارض في وسط خيمتي والفضة تحتها.

22 فارسل يشوع رسلا فركضوا الى الخيمة واذا هي مطمورة في خيمته والفضة تحتها.

23 فأخذوها من وسط الخيمة وأتوا بها الى يشوع والى جميع بني اسرائيل وبسطوها امام الرب.

24 فاخذ يشوع عخان بن زارح والفضة والرداء ولسان الذهب وبنيه وبناته وبقره وحميره وغنمه وخيمته وكل ما له وجميع اسرائيل معه وصعدوا بهم الى وادي عخور.

25 فقال يشوع كيف كدّرتنا. يكدرك الرب في هذا اليوم. فرجمه جميع اسرائيل بالحجارة واحرقوهم بالنار ورموهم بالحجارة

26 واقاموا فوقه رجمة حجارة عظيمة الى هذا اليوم. فرجع الرب عن حمو غضبه. ولذلك دعي اسم ذلك المكان وادي عخور الى هذا اليوم

Exploring the Meaning of Joshua 7      

Napsal(a) Rev. Julian Duckworth and New Christian Bible Study Staff

Joshua 7: The defeat at Ai, and the sin of Achan.

This chapter opens with the statement that Israel had sinned at Jericho, because an Israelite named Achan had kept something for himself, against the Lord's commandment. (But Joshua doesn't know this yet.)

The great victory at Jericho was quickly followed by an embarrassing defeat at Ai. The Israelites hadn't expected much difficulty in taking Ai, and sent just a few thousand men to attack it. They were routed.

Spiritually, we might say that pride goes before a fall, but more specifically, in the work of our regeneration we are never to rest on our laurels, but to always stay alert to each situation and how we are internally handling it. (Apocalypse Revealed 158)

Understandably, Joshua pours out his heart to the Lord, wondering why they have even crossed over the Jordan to simply be destroyed. The Lord tells him that their defeat at Ai was because Israel sinned by taking some of the forbidden things of Jericho. The Lord explains how to put this right, by identifying the wrongdoer and destroying him and his family.

Note the weakness of Joshua (as earlier also with Moses at times) when things go wrong and he feels confused, full of doubt, hurt and afraid. When things go well, we go well; when things go badly, we tend to go to pieces. And we ask, “Why? Why this, why me, why now?”

The Lord’s answer is a command, “Get up! Why are you lying on your face?” This is a pretty plain meaning: The Lord wants us to use such setbacks to be able to go forward, seeing the problem as a challenge and an opportunity and learning point.

Joshua is told to find the source of the wrong and the defeat. From all the tribes, one tribe will be selected by the Lord. From all its families, one family will be chosen. From all its households, one household will be chosen, and from that household, one man will be chosen. And Achan was the man and he is brought out. (Arcana Caelestia 5135)

This drawing-by-lot is a remarkable picture of our spiritual self-examination. We’re told that to make our general confession of ‘having done what we should not have done’ is almost worthless because we are likely to just carry on the same afterwards. (Arcana Caelestia 8390) Our personal inventory must be specific. What kind of thoughts have I been allowing myself recently? What did that make me feel in my heart? Did I welcome it or want nothing to do with it? It’s a kind of pinpointing, and it leads us to Achan, whose name in Hebrew means ‘trouble’ and ‘troubler’. (The New Jerusalem and its Heavenly Doctrine 164)

Achan, discovered, doesn't hide or deny his wrongdoing but openly admits that he has sinned against the Lord. He'd seen a beautiful garment, much silver, and a chunk of gold, and took them, and hid them in the earth in the middle of his tent. He confesses and indeed, his confession is transparent. So must our confession be when we see things in ourselves that go against the Lord’s truths and ways. They bring forth his stolen goods from his tent.

Then, in a comprehensive way, Joshua took everything Achan owned in its entirety, including the stolen goods, to the Valley of Achor (a name again meaning ‘trouble’) and stoned him and all his family and burned them with fire and raised a heap of stones over it all. This, to us, might well sound like a brutal and an unwarranted punishment.

Spiritually, the Lord does not punish us, ever. Rather, he commands that we turn from our evils, and suffer the consequences if we don't. The Lord does this to help and encourage us to stop following our own way and to commit ourselves to following and living His way. We can only conquer Canaan, representing heaven, when we do this. (Arcana Caelestia 8622)
