1 两个支派返回河东

2 对他们:“耶和华的仆人摩西吩咐你们的一切,你们都遵守了;我吩咐你们的一切,你们也都从了。

3 许多日子以来,你们一直没有撇弃你们的兄弟,直到今日;耶和华你们的吩咐你们的命令,你们也遵守了。

4 现在耶和华你们的,照着他应许的,已经使你们兄弟得享平安;现在你们可以返回自己家里,回到耶和华的仆人摩西约旦河东赐你们作产业的地方去。

5 只是你们要谨慎遵守耶和华的仆人摩西吩咐你们的诫命和律耶和华你们的,遵行他的一切道路,谨守他的诫命,紧紧倚靠他,一心一意事奉他。”

6 于是约书亚给他们祝福,打发他们回去,他们就回自己的家里去了。

7 摩西在巴珊已经把产业分玛拿西个支派;至于另外个支派,约书亚在约旦河西他们的兄弟中间,也把产业分了他们。约书亚打发他们回家去的时候,他们祝福

8 对他们:“你们带着许多财物,许多牲畜和、铜、,以及许多衣服,回自己的家去吧;也要把你们从仇敌夺得的战利品与你们的兄弟同分。”

9 于是流本人、迦得人和玛拿西个支派的人,从迦南地的示罗起程,离开以色列人,回到他们所得的产业基列地去,就是照着耶和华借着摩西所吩咐,赐给他们的产业。

10 两个支派在河畔筑流本人、迦得人和玛拿西个支派的人,迦南地靠近约旦河的地区,就在约旦河边那里筑了一座祭坛,那十分壮观。

11 以色列人见了这事,就:“看哪,流本人、迦得人和玛拿西个支派的人,在迦南地边境,靠近约旦河的地区,以色列人境内,筑了一座。”

12 以色列人见了这事,以色列全体会众就聚集在示罗,要上去讨伐他们。

13 其他支派产生疑惑以色列人派以利亚撒祭司儿子非尼哈,到基列地去见流本人、迦得人和玛拿西个支派的人;

14 又派个首领与非尼哈同去,每个都代表以色列的支派家族;他们是全体以色列各家族的领袖。

15 他们去到基列地,流本人、迦得人和玛拿西个支派的人那里,对他们

16 耶和华的全体会众这样:‘你们作的是什么事?竟对以色列的不忠,今日离不跟从耶和华,为自己筑了一座,背叛了耶和华

17 从前拜毗珥的罪孽,我们还以为是小事吗?虽然有灾疫临到耶和华的会众,直到今日我们还没有洗净这罪呢。

18 你们今日竟离不跟从耶和华吗?今日你们既然背叛耶和华,明日他必向以色列全体会众发怒了。

19 如果你们认为所得的地业不洁净,你们可以过到耶和华的地业,就是耶和华的帐幕居住的地方,在我们中间得地业;只是不可背叛耶和华,也不可背叛我们,在耶和华我们以外,为自己筑另一座

20 从前谢拉的曾孙亚干,不是在当毁灭的物上犯了不忠的罪,以致神的忿怒临到以色列全体会众吗?因他的罪孽而死的,还不只他呢!’”

21 释疑于是流本人、迦得人玛拿西个支派的人回答以色列的统领

22 “大能者耶和华!大能者耶和华,他是知道的,愿以色列知道;如果我们存心背叛,或是对耶和华不忠,今日就不要放过我们

23 我们若是为自己筑离不跟从耶和华,或是把燔祭、素祭和平安祭献在上,愿耶和华亲自追究我们

24 我们作这事,实在是有理由的,因为顾虑将来你们的子孙对我们的子孙:‘你们与耶和华以色列的有什么关系呢?

25 流本人和迦得人啊,耶和华定了约旦河我们和你们中间的疆界;你们与耶和华无分了。’这样,你们的子孙就使我们的子孙不再敬畏耶和华了。

26 “因此我们:‘我们筑一座吧,不是为了献燔祭,也不是为了献别的祭,

27 而是为了在你们和我们中间,也在我们中间作证据,使我们也可以在耶和华面前用燔祭、别的祭和平安祭事奉耶和华,免得你们的子孙将来对我们的子孙:你们与耶和华无分了。’

28 因此我们:‘将来有人对我们,或是对我们的后这样我们就可以回答:你们我们列祖所筑的,是耶和华的祭坛的模式,这并不是用来献燔祭,也不是用来献别的祭,而是在我们和你们中间作证据。’

29 我们决没有背叛耶和华的意思,今日要离不跟从耶和华,在耶和华我们的帐幕前的祭坛以外,另筑一座,为了献燔祭、素祭和别的祭。”

30 彼此谅解非尼哈祭司会众的领袖,以及与祭司同来的以色列的统领,了流本人、迦得人玛拿西,都很满意。

31 以利亚撒祭司儿子非尼哈对流本人、迦得人和玛拿西:“今天我们知道耶和华是在我们中间的,因为你们并没有对耶和华不忠;现在你们已经救了以色列人脱离耶和华的。”

32 以利亚撒祭司儿子非尼哈和众领袖离开了流本人和迦得人,从基列地回到迦南以色列人那里,把这事向他们报告。

33 以色列人对这事都很满意,就称颂,不再要上去讨伐流本人和迦得人,毁灭他们所的地方了。

34 流本人和迦得人给那起名,因为他们:“这我们中间证明耶和华。”

Exploring the Meaning of Joshua 22      

Napsal(a) Rev. Julian Duckworth

Joshua 22: The tribes of Reuben, Gad and half Manasseh return.

With the land of Canaan now settled by Israel, the time had come for the men of Reuben, Gad, and one half of Manasseh to return to the other side of the Jordan, where their wives, children, cattle and sheep were left. The men of these two and a half tribes had been ordered to fight alongside the other tribes of Israel, and only then to return home.

They left, and when they came to the banks of the River Jordan, they built a large altar to the Lord. When the rest of Israel caught word of this, they wanted to go to war with these tribes, because they felt the altar was a sacrilege - Israel had the tabernacle for its worship of the Lord. They sent Phineas the priest to ask why they had built the altar. These tribes across the Jordan replied that in the future, the people of Israel may move against them, and reject them. They said the altar would serve as a witness to their worship of the Lord, just as the Israelites in Canaan worshiped. This answer pleased the priest, and when he told the leaders of Israel, it pleased them too.

The spiritual meaning of this episode is a very important one for us. The tribes living on the other side of the River Jordan stand for the worldly activities of our outward life, which in themselves are a very important part of our spiritual life. These actions make up the external part of spiritual life, in which we are able to do good (see Swedenborg’s work, Arcana Caelestia 9824[2]).

The tribes building an altar to God portrays our understanding that all the good we do, and all the use we provide, is possible because of the Lord. He is the giver of all good, which is why we must serve the Lord. Without use, spiritual thoughts and beliefs do not have a foundation (Arcana Caelestia 9473[3]).

Reuben, Gad and half of Manasseh said that the people of Israel might cut them off in the future. In spiritual terms, this would be to separate spiritual life and external life in daily living. This would result in such things as hypocrisy, and faith without charity, both of which are a threat to our spiritual well-being (see Swedenborg’s work, Doctrine of Life 4).

The altar, which was built on Canaan’s side of the Jordan before these tribes crossed over, was to stand as a witness to the union between the tribes within Canaan and the tribes across the Jordan, as one nation before the Lord (Arcana Caelestia 9714).

This unity means that we must be equally present in three areas of life: in the depths of our heart, in our worship and adoration of the Lord; in our mind, in our understanding and delight in the Lord’s Word with all its truth; and in our outward actions, where our acknowledgement of the Lord as our God leads us to be sincere, just, moral, fair, compassionate and dedicated to the service of God.

The answer from the three tribes pleased the priest and, in turn, the leaders of Israel. This reception represents our affirmation that ‘being spiritual’ does not take the place of helping others, but really demands that we serve the Lord in our daily actions (see Swedenborg’s work, Apocalypse Explained 325[4]).

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。

圣经中提到的第一个祭坛是挪亚从方舟中出来后所建造的。在那祭坛上,他把洁净的动物献给了耶和华。山代表着耶和华,因为山是高高在上,我们在与主 "说话 "的时候,必须把自己的思想抬高到属世的事物之上。祭坛是一座小小的人造山,但当用在敬拜的时候,就能唤起这种思想的升起,火和烟被送上来,象征性地送上主。祭坛大多是用未切割的石头做成的。石头代表真理,未被人塑造的石头代表真理,未被人塑造的石头代表来自于道的真理,未被掺杂的真理。清净的兽代表着善事,代表着因为正确而做的慈善行为,而清净的鸟代表着对教义和行为的思考,代表着什么是正确的。所以呈现这些东西,就是承认我们从主那里得到了这些东西,并为这些东西感谢祂。 在以色列人的会幕中,燔祭坛代表善的承认,香坛代表真理。因此,这个大一点的祭坛在门外,是用黄铜做的,代表自然的善,而香坛是用金子做的,代表对耶和华的爱,从耶和华那里来的是真理。

回答
一般来说,"回答 "是指一种属灵的接受状态。归根结底,这意味着接受主,主不断地试图将真正的想法和美好的愿望灌输到我们的心灵和思想中。它也可以是在我们的外在部分接受自己的内在部分的引导--承诺使我们的行动跟随我们更深的信仰。 在圣经中,"回答 "经常与 "说 "搭配在一起。在这些情况下,一般来说,它表示的是一种感知的程度加上接受的程度。这意味着你不仅能接受从主那里临到你的东西,而且还能看到它,认识到其中的真理,并认识到这里面的真理,这将使你的生活更加美好。

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。
