1 九个半支派在河西的分地

2 是照着耶和华借着摩西所吩咐的,以抽签的方法把产业分给支派。

3 因为摩西约旦河东已经把产业分了那两个支派;却没有把产业分他们中间的利未人。

4 因为约瑟的子孙成了两个支派,就是玛拿西以法莲,因此以色列人没有把地业分在那地的利未人,只他们一些城市居住,还有城市的郊野,可以牧放他们的牲畜,安置他们的财产

5 耶和华怎样吩咐摩西以色列人就照样行,把地分配了。

6 迦勒的分地犹大来到吉甲约书亚那里,基尼洗耶孚尼的儿子迦勒对约书亚:“耶和华在加低斯.巴尼亚对摩西关于你和我的,你是知道的。

7 耶和华的仆人摩西从加低斯.巴尼亚派我去窥探这地的时候,我正四十岁;我照着我心里所想的向他报告。

8 可是,与我一同上去的众兄弟却使人民的惊惧,我却完全顺从耶和华我的

9 摩西起誓说:‘你的踏过的地都必归你和你的子孙作产业,直到永远,因为你完全顺从耶和华我的。’

10 现在你看,自从耶和华摩西了这以后,耶和华照着所应许的,使我活了这四十五年,就是以色列人在旷野行走的时期;现在你看,我今日已经是八十岁了。

11 今日我还是强壮,像摩西派我去的那一样;无论是作战,或是出入,那时我的力量怎样,现在我的力量还是怎样。

12 现在求你把耶和华那日所应许的这地赐我;因为那你也曾见那里有亚衲人,又有宽坚固的城;但耶和华与我同在,我就可以把他们赶出去,正如耶和华所应许的。”

13 于是约书亚迦勒祝福,把希伯仑赐了耶孚尼的儿子迦勒作产业。

14 因此,希伯仑成了基尼洗人耶孚尼的儿子迦勒的产业,直到今日;因为他完全顺从耶和华以色列的

15 希伯仑从前名叫基列.亚巴;亚巴是亚衲人中最伟大的人。全地也就止息了战争


Exploring the Meaning of 约书亚记 14      

Napsal(a) Rev. Julian Duckworth

Joshua 14: The territories west of the Jordan, and Caleb’s inheritance.

This chapter tells how the land of Canaan would be distributed among the remaining nine-and-a-half tribes, which would be determined by drawing lots. The tribe of Levi, the priests of Israel, would not receive their own territory, but would be given cities to live in across the land. The tribes of Ephraim and Manasseh, the sons of Joseph, were each recognized as a tribe of Israel to make the number of tribes receiving land equal twelve. Caleb and his people received Mount Hebron as a special inheritance, because he had fully and whole-heartedly followed the Lord God of Israel many years ago.

Casting lots was used in those days to decide many things, because people believed that the outcome showed the will of God. Lots were often sticks or stones, each marked with a symbol, which would be cast much like rolling dice. Then the result would be examined to make a decision. The spiritual meaning of casting lots is that we should allow the Lord to show us what is required, and believe that His providence extends over everything in our lives (see Swedenborg’s work, Arcana Caelestia 10773). “The lot is cast into the lap, but its every decision is from the Lord” (Proverbs 16:33).

The tribe of Levi, the third of the twelve sons of Jacob, had been set apart from the other tribes during their time in the wilderness; when the war cry “Who is on the Lord’s side?” was given before a battle, it was only the tribe of Levi who had responded. They were appointed as the priests of Israel for this dedication to God. Here, now, we are told that they are to live throughout the land (Arcana Caelestia 6998).

On a spiritual level, the Levites stand for the Lord’s presence throughout the whole of our life. Another way of putting this is that our spirit (and our life) is there throughout the whole of our body. And a third way of seeing this is that every part of our life should be guided by our love for the Lord. Other references to the Levites mention that all the people of Israel are to provide food and gifts for the Levites, reinforcing this same idea.

Caleb gets special treatment; he is given Mount Hebron as a new home for his people. Caleb and Joshua had been sent with 10 other men to spy out the land of Canaan 40 years earlier. They had given it a good report, and had - unsuccessfully - urged the Children of Israel to follow the Lord's leading and conquer the land at that time. Now, Caleb reminds Joshua about the Lord’s words to Moses regarding them, and Moses’ promise to give Caleb an inheritance. At the age of eighty-five, Caleb was still as strong as when spied out the land. He tells Joshua: “Now therefore, give me this mountain and the Lord will be with me to drive out the enemy” (Joshua 14:12). And it is given to him with a blessing from Joshua.

Mount Hebron is in the territory of Judah, west of the Dead Sea and south of what is now Jerusalem. Its name means ‘bound by a common bond’ or ‘accord’. Its spiritual meaning is that it brings diversity into unity, many into one, and for us, harmony in our spiritual life (Arcana Caelestia 3241[2]).

Caleb’s name means ‘bold, fearless, ferocious to enemies’. For us, Caleb is a picture of sureness and determination that to follow the Lord will always lead to success. Caleb never led Israel, but he acts as a right-hand-man to Joshua. Even though Joshua was the one to lead the children of Israel, there is still the need in each of us for Caleb’s enthusiasm, conviction and assurance to move forward with full confidence. His strength never left him, because he felt and lived the strength which the Lord gave him (see Swedenborg’s work, True Christian Religion 137[5]).

约旦
约旦河将迦南地与东边的土地分开。这种分离代表了人的心灵分为内部和外部,而教会正是在人的内部心灵中形成的。 河北还有梅洛姆和加利利两个湖泊的限制,南边还有死海的限制。这些限制里面是心灵的内部事物,外面是外部事物。 圣经》中提到的外面的国家,可以帮助我们。他们代表着基本的知识、推理能力、理性、好奇心等品质,作为朋友,可以支持我们的宗教信仰,作为敌人,可以反对我们的宗教信仰,也可以变出假神让我们崇拜。 里面的土地代表着一种再生的状态,也可以代表这种状态的最终结局,也就是天堂。 那么,从外面看,约旦河是通向更好的入口,是旅途的目标,它的水代表着悔改的精神洗礼,这是教会的第一件事,这也是为什么约翰在那里施洗,纳曼在那里洗礼。   从里面看,约旦河是教会外的边缘,因此以色列子民经常被外面的国家所困扰:米甸人、亚扪人、叙利亚人、埃及人、巴比伦人,以及我们在《历代志》、《列王纪》和《先知书》中读到的其他国家。 我们外在的心智能力可以为好的东西服务,但也可以为坏的东西服务。

玛拿西

以法莲
以法莲是约瑟在埃及所生的第二个儿子,和他的哥哥玛拿西一起,被雅各提升到和约瑟的兄弟们一样的地位。因此,当以色列各支派被命名时,以法莲和玛拿西与他们的叔父--流便、西缅、利未、犹大、但、拿弗他利、迦得、亚设、以萨迦、西布伦和便雅悯--一起被列为族长,但约瑟却没有。 根据瑞典堡的说法,以法莲代表教会的智力方面,即探索和理解真实的部分--特别是可以从圣经中得出的真实想法。同时,玛拿西代表了教会的情感方面,即感受、爱和关心的部分。 这就演变成以法莲一生中最著名的故事。雅各老了,快死的时候,约瑟带着他的两个儿子来受祝福。他把玛拿西作为长子送给雅各的右手,把以法莲送给雅各的左手。但雅各双手交叉,把主要的祝福给了以法莲。 按照瑞典堡的说法,玛拿西是长子,因为归根结底,我们所爱的东西使我们成为我们自己,我们的爱形成了我们的生命。所以,我们的爱是我们人类存在的最核心、最主要的方面,我们的智力是次要的角色。但是随着我们的发展,我们需要扭转这些。我们可以用我们的智力去理解什么是好的、正确的,并强迫自己去做,即使我们的欲望是为了自私的东西。如果我们出于跟随主、做好人的决心而坚持这样做,主最终会把我们心中的私心去除,让我们真正爱上善的东西。主让雅各在玛拿西之上祝福以法莲,就是在告诉我们,我们要追求属灵的旅程,必须把智慧放在第一位。

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。

知道
就像许多常见的动词一样,"知道 "在圣经中的含义是多种多样的,取决于上下文。而在某些情况下--当它与观念或对象联系在一起时,它的灵性意义和自然意义基本上是相同的。 不过有意思的是,当圣经谈到人与人之间的认识,尤其是谈到主与人的认识时,其意义更多的是与人内心的爱的状态有关,而不是任何事实的认识。 如果你仔细想想,这是有道理的。当我们真正 "了解 "一个人的时候,我们的意思是,我们知道他们是什么样的人,他们的动机是什么,他们喜欢什么,他们讨厌什么,是什么让他们生气。这些事情远比知道他们父母的名字,他们在哪里出生或哪一年从学校毕业更重要。 那么,大多数情况下,尤其是应用在人身上,"知道 "与我们对别人的爱的认知,以及有类似爱的人之间可能存在的结合,而不仅仅是事实的集合。

兄弟
"兄弟 "在《圣经》中有两种用法,在现代语言中仍有体现。一种是指实际的血缘关系;另一种是以 "人的兄弟关系 "的方式,更广泛地指共同性。 第二种用法在圣经中是一致的,意思是指那些活在行善的爱中的人。这可以是不同层次的,从简单的顺服的喜乐,到服侍别人的慈善之爱,再到主自己的崇高之爱。但在这些爱中都是兄弟。 启示录解释》,第746页。 "这样的人之所以被称为弟兄,是因为他们都有一位父亲,即主;那些在爱主的好处上,在对邻舍的仁爱上,都是主的儿子。(S)既然是一位父亲的儿子,他们也是弟兄。而且,主父的大诫命,就是要他们彼此相爱,因此,是爱使他们成为弟兄......" 有血缘关系的兄弟,情况就比较复杂,其意义更多的是受兄弟的身份和故事背景的影响。一般来说,它们反映了行善的愿望和对如何行善的理解之间可能存在的统一。该隐和亚伯以及几对双胞胎都是如此。雅各布和以扫、犹大的儿子撒拉和法勒斯、约瑟的儿子以法莲和玛拿西;在每一个案例中,一个代表了行善的愿望,另一个代表了对真理的理解。 因为这种善与真的兄弟情谊,兄弟可以根据上下文的不同,代表任何一种。事实上,约瑟的兄弟们的意义在他的故事中不断变化,因为他们代表了犹太信仰的先驱的精神衰落和重生。...


心是爱的意思。一颗善良的心意味着爱主和邻舍,而一颗坚硬或石质的心则意味着爱自己或世界、财富和事物。当诗人请求主搜罗他的心时,他要主看看他所爱的是什么。而我们就是我们所爱的。我们吃的东西可能会形成我们属世的身体,但这只是暂时的,我们所爱的东西会形成我们属灵的身体,美丽或丑陋都由我们选择。 有趣的是,我们胚胎的第一个多细胞运动是在血管的扭曲中开始的脉动,它将成为我们的心脏,而我们自然身体的最后一个运动是我们的心跳。我们的自然生命都有它的存在。当然我们的灵体也有一颗跳动的心,当我们来穿上灵体的时候。 如果不考虑到肺,就很难想到心脏在身体中的用途。心脏循环血液,给全身带来生命,但除非血液首先被送到肺部充氧,清除有害气体,否则它将毫无用处。这两个器官一起工作,它们是嵌套在一起的,心脏躺在两个肺之间,各自感受着对方的运动。这两个代表着我们的爱和智慧,正如我们的爱需要通过我们对真理的理解来净化有害的东西,并充满了如何实际做它所渴望的活动的知识一样,爱和智慧,或者说意志和理解,就像我们的心和肺一样工作。事实上,它比这更深入。我们的意志和理解是按照神的天意和神的理解的 "形象和模样 "创造的,我们的心和肺的运作方式是为了在最低的创造层次上反映这一点。 总有更多的话要讲,更多的联系要做。见 "教会 "和 "大人物"。


"Day" describes a state in which we are turned toward the Lord, and are receiving light (which is truth) and heat (which is a desire...


我们的脚是我们身体最底层的部分,它们非常有用!在《圣经》中,脚代表了我们灵性自我中最低级、最功利的部分--"自然 "层面。这个生活的日常层面涉及到常规的任务和要求,以及与之相关的思想。它不是非常深刻或内省,但它是有用的--就像脚一样。 主和教会团体的这种对应关系也是如此。主的神性自然引导我们通过相对简单的顺服(想想十条诫命,和两条大诫命)。教会也有一个自然的层面,在这个层面上,他们以简单而具体的方式服务于他们的社区。

永远
在许多情况下,圣经中 "永恒 "的使用是相当字面的,简单的意思就是永远。特别是当文中提到某人被判处下地狱或升入天堂时,更是如此。 然而,在某些情况下,"永恒 "或 "旧日 "指的是《圣经》中所说的最古教会--最早的人中的第一个教会,是直接出于爱主而行动的无辜灵魂。由于这种联想,被称为 "永恒 "或 "永生 "的事物通常代表着因爱主而产生的对美好的渴望。 如果我们爱主,那么我们的愿望就会是遵行祂的旨意,爱如祂的爱。由此,我们就会有一个真正的愿望,去爱和关心别人。这就是 "永恒 "所描述的感觉。

"伟大 "这个词在圣经中用来代表一种具有强烈的爱和感情、对善的渴望的状态;圣经用其他词汇来代表思想、观念、智力的事情。 如果你仔细想想,这是有道理的,因为一个愿望可以涉及到一连串的想法和观念。比如说,你想帮助孩子完成她的学校作业。这是一个好的愿望。要付诸行动,你可能想知道她在不同科目上的成绩如何,她在某些科目上有什么困难,你是否对这个科目有足够的了解,如果你不能帮助她,还有谁可能帮助她,什么时候是合作的好时机,你是否有一个好的工作空间等等。这些都是分开的想法,由一个善的愿望串联起来的。所以圣经用 "许多"、"众多 "这样的词来形容知识性的东西--这些词意味着可以分开来数的东西的集合,而用 "大 "来形容对善的渴望--这个词意味着一些大的东西,但却是统一的,本质上不可数的东西。

战争
道上的战争代表着试探性的战斗,当善的东西被恶的或假的东西攻击时。攻击的邪恶来自于地狱的众多社会中的一个,它的运作方式是唤起我们心中的自私的爱,而这种爱是与我们所知道的正确的东西相反的。然后,我们自私的爱攻击滋养着希望成为一个好人的爱,于是我们的心中就有了战争。这以以色列人的子民在迦南地及其周围的战争为代表,在旧约圣经中有很长的历史。自私的爱从我们的遗传中在我们的心中泛滥成灾,而善良的爱随着我们的良知的发展而长久地伴随着我们的良心而来。如果我们没有良知,我们就不可能受诱惑,我们会立刻顺着私心的意愿而屈服。但最终的结果是,我们会被地狱所奴役,为所欲为。
