1 联合攻打基遍

2 他们就非常惧怕。因为基遍城,好像座王城;又因为基遍比艾城,城里所有的人都是勇士。

3 因此,耶路撒冷亚多尼.洗德派人到希伯仑何咸、耶末毗兰、拉吉雅非亚和伊矶伦底璧那里去,对他们说:

4 “求你们上我这里来帮助我,我们好攻打基遍,因为基遍已经与约书亚和以色列人议和了。”

5 于是亚摩利人的那,就是耶路撒冷、希伯仑、耶末、拉吉和伊矶伦,联合起来,带着他们所有的军队上去,在基遍的对面安,攻打基遍

6 约书亚击败五基遍人就派人到吉甲中约书亚那里去,:“不可丢弃你的仆人,求你快快上我们这里来拯我们、帮助我们;因为地的亚摩利人所有的都集合起来攻击我们。”

7 于是约书亚和所有能作战的人,以及所有英勇的战士,都一起从吉甲上去。

8 耶和华对约书亚:“你不要怕他们,因为我已经把他们交在你里了;他们必没有一能在你面前站立得住。”

9 于是约书亚乘夜从吉甲上去,突然到他们那里。

10 耶和华使他们在以色列人面前溃乱,约书亚在基遍地击杀他们,沿着伯.和仑的上坡追赶他们,击打他们,直到亚西加和玛基

11 他们从以色列人面前逃跑,正在下伯.和仑斜坡的时候,耶和华上降冰雹在他们身上,一直到亚西加,打他们;被冰雹的,比以色列人用刀的还多。

12 日月停止那时,就是耶和华把亚摩利人交以色列人的时候,约书亚在以色列人面前对耶和华:“太阳啊,停在基遍月亮啊,停在亚雅仑。”

13 于是太阳停住,月亮站住,直到以色列人在仇敌的身上报了仇。这事不是在《雅煞珥》上吗?太阳天空中站住,不急速下落,约有一整

14 在这日以前或这日以耶和华的祷告,没有像这日一样的,因为耶和华以色列作战。

15 后来,约书亚和众以色列人回到吉甲那里去。

16 生擒就地正法那逃跑了,躲藏在玛基大洞里。

17 有人告诉约书亚,说:“那已经到了,都躲藏在玛基大洞里。”

18 约书亚:“你们把几块石头辊到洞那里去,并派人到洞去看守他们。

19 你们却不可站着,要追赶你们的仇敌,从面击杀他们,不可让他们逃进自己的城中,因为耶和华你们的已经把他们交在你们的里了。”

20 约书亚和以色列人把他们杀得惨败,直到把他们灭绝为止,那些逃脱的人都逃进设防的城里;

21 以色列人都平平安安回到玛基大中约书亚那里。没有话攻击以色列人

22 约书亚:“你们打开,把那从洞里拉出来,带到我这里来。”

23 众人就照着执行,他们把那,就是耶路撒冷、希伯仑、耶末、拉吉和伊矶伦,从洞里拉出来,带到约书亚那里去。

24 把那五个带到约书亚那里去的时候,约书亚把所有的以色列人都召了来,对那些与他同去作战的军长:“你们走前来,把踏在这些的颈项上。”他们就走前来,把踏在那些的颈项上。

25 约书亚对他们:“你们不要惧怕,不要惊慌;总要坚强勇敢,因为耶和华必这样对待你们要攻打的所有仇敌。”

26 ,约书亚把那个王杀,悬在上;他们就悬在上,直到晚上

27 到了日落的时候,约书亚吩咐人把他们从上取,丢在他们躲藏过的洞里,把几块石头放在洞;这些石头一直存到今日。

28 约书亚攻取南部各城在那,约书亚占领了玛基大,用刀击杀了那城的人和那城的,把城中所有的人完全毁灭,不容一人逃脱;他对待玛基大就像对待耶利哥一样。

29 约书亚和跟他在一起的众以色列人从玛基大往立拿去,攻打立拿。

30 耶和华把立拿和立拿的也交在以色列人里,约书亚用刀攻击那城,杀了城里所有的人,不容一人逃脱;他对待立拿就像对待耶利哥一样。

31 约书亚和跟他在一起的众以色列人从立拿往拉吉去,对着拉吉安营,攻打这城。

32 耶和华把拉吉交在以色列人里,第二约书亚就占领了拉吉,用刀攻击那城,杀了城中所有的人,跟他对立拿所行的一切一样。

33 那时,基色荷兰上来帮助拉吉,约书亚就把他和他的人民都击杀了,没有留下一人。

34 约书亚和与他在一起的众以色列人从拉吉往伊矶伦去,对着伊矶伦安营,攻打这城。

35 一天,他们占领了这城,用刀攻击那城,杀了城中所有的人;那一天约书亚把他们完全毁灭,跟他对拉吉所行的一切一样。

36 约书亚和与他在一起的众以色列人从伊矶伦上希伯仑去,攻打这城。

37 他们占领了这城,用刀攻击这城,杀了这城的,又攻击属于这城的城,杀了城中所有的人,不容一人逃脱,跟他对伊矶伦所行的一切一样,把这城和城中所有的人完全毁灭。

38 约书亚和与他在一起的众以色列人回到了底璧,攻打这城。

39 约书亚占领了这城,抓住这城的,又占领了属于这城的一切城;以色列人用刀击杀他们,把城中所有的人都毁灭了;约书亚不容一人逃脱,他怎样对待希伯仑,也照样对待底璧和底璧的;也好像他对待立拿和立拿的一样。

40 这样,约书亚击杀了全地的人,就是地、地、高原和坡的人,以及那些地方所有的,不容一人逃脱;约书亚照着耶和华以色列的的吩咐,把有气息的都完全毁灭了。

41 约书亚从加低斯.巴尼亚击杀他们,直到迦萨,又从歌珊全地击杀他们,直到基遍

42 约书亚在这次战役中击败了这些和占领了他们的地,是因为耶和华以色列的以色列作战。

43 于是约书亚和与他在一起的众以色列人回到吉甲中。

Exploring the Meaning of Joshua 10      

Joshua 10: The five kings and how the sun stood still.

After hearing that Gibeon - a sizeable city - had made a peace treaty with Israel, the king of Jerusalem called on four other Canaanite kings to join him in attacking Gibeon. The Gibeonites asked Joshua to remember his promise to keep them safe, and Israel did so, coming to their defense. A great battle ensued at Gilgal. With the Lord’s help, the Israelites defeated the five Canaanite kings. As the Canaanites were fleeing, the Lord sent large hailstones raining down on them, killing more soldiers than had died in the battle. Then, Joshua asked the Lord to make the sun stand still until the enemy was defeated, and it stopped moving across the sky for one whole day.

The defeated kings fled, and hid in a cave at Makkeda. Joshua commanded his men to roll stones over the cave entrance, and to attack the rest of their fleeing enemies. After returning to the cave, Joshua’s men brought the kings out of hiding and stood on their necks, to demonstrate that the Lord would vanquish all of Israel’s enemies. Joshua hanged them, put them back in the cave, and once again sealed the entrance with stones. The rest of the chapter chronicles Israel’s defeat of many other Canaanite cities and kings.

This story shows us that life is amazingly connected and full of consequences. Spiritual life has its share of unforeseen consequences too. When we affirm our wish to follow the Lord, evil spirits will try to fill our minds with distressing thoughts to pull us away from Him. Sometimes this can lead us to rise up and resist our decision to follow the Lord (See Swedenborg’s work, Arcana Caelestia 1683).

The part of the chapter about the sun standing still represents our need to remain focused on the Lord during our struggles with temptation and regeneration. The Lord is our sun, and normally our awareness of the Lord rises and sets. This brings times when we feel the Lord’s presence strongly, and also times when we feel it is up to us to act as we wish. This is our normal rhythm, and it is right for us to have this cycle.

When we are involved in a spiritual crisis, we need to ensure that our mind’s focus stays with the Lord until we have made it through. This is like our sense of the Lord’s presence standing still ‘for a day’ in our mind’s sky, so that we will not lose our direction. This enabled Joshua and Israel to be victorious, just as it will with us (See Swedenborg’s work, Divine Love and Wisdom 105).

When the Lord sent hailstones - frozen water - on the Canaanites, it represents the way in which false ideas from evil intentions backfire on the attacker of good, because evil is notoriously self-destructive. One lie leads to more another, until the wrongdoer is exposed and judged (See Swedenborg’s Heaven and Hell 457).

The cave of Makkedah, where the five kings hid, also holds spiritual significance because of its name, which means ‘the excellent place of shepherds.’ Shepherding represents the Lord’s care for us and our care for each other. Evil may hide behind a semblance of good but it can’t last. Joshua and his men later brought the kings out of the cave and hanged them, signifying that all true life comes from the Lord and His goodness, and He will bring an end to every evil and false way (Divine Love and Wisdom 363).

Israel’s subsequent conquest of other Canaanite cities depicts the follow-through that takes place after an important point in our regeneration: a decision, a refusal, an admission, a prayer to God. This results in a period of witnessing the Lord’s blessings, which naturally follow once we have affirmed our intention to be with the Lord in our life. The chapter ends, “All these kings Joshua took at one time because the Lord God fought for Israel.”

按照瑞典博格的说法,时间和空间不存在于精神现实中,它们是纯粹的自然事物,只存在于物质层面。这就意味着,一个精神性的东西不可能在时间上的另一个精神性的东西 "之后 "发生,因为没有时间。而一个精神性的东西也不可能在空间上 "追随 "另一个精神性的东西,因为没有空间。 相反,灵性的现实是建立在灵性状态的基础上,或天使的爱和思想。这些爱和思想以因果链的方式连接在一起,天使们的体验就像我们体验时间一样;一个思想在精神层面上流向另一个思想,而天使们感觉到这种进步,就像我们感觉到一个时刻流向另一个时刻的进步一样。当天使有类似的思想和感觉时,他们体验到的亲近感和我们对肉体亲近感的体验是非常相同的;他们对 "空间 "的概念是整个精神世界中的灵魂所拥有的思想和情感的变化。 当《圣经》将某件事情描述为 "后边 "的东西时,那么,属灵的意义就与属灵状态的递进有关;它是在前边的东西基础上产生的新的属灵状态。由于较高的状态会流入较低的状态,所以 "之后 "的东西往往是较低的、较外在的状态。例如,内心深处对他人的善的渴望,会自动地流向具体的想法,即我们可以做的具体的善事。那么,这些具体的想法,就会 "在 "善的欲望之后。

主是爱本身,以智慧本身的形式表达。爱是他的本质,也是他的全部。智慧-对如何将爱付诸行动的热爱理解-稍微有点外在,为爱提供了一种表达自我的方式。 当圣经说“耶和华”时,它代表的是至高无上的爱,这是主的本质。那爱本身就是一个完整的整体,而爱也是一个,只适用于主的名字。然而,智慧表达在各种各样的思想和观念中,这些著作统称为神的真理。也有许多虚构的神,有时天使和人也可以被称为神(耶和华说摩西将成为亚伦的神)。因此,当圣经称上帝为“上帝”时,多数情况下是指神圣的真理。 在其他情况下,“上帝”指的是所谓的神圣人类。情况是这样的: 作为人类,我们不能直接将主作为上帝的爱来参与。它太强大了,太纯净了。相反,我们必须通过神圣的真理了解他来接近他。因此,神圣的真理是人类形式的主,这是我们可以接近和理解的形式。因此,“上帝”也被用来指代人类这一方面,因为它是真理的表达。
