1 聯合攻打基遍耶路撒冷亞多尼.洗德見約書亞佔領了艾城,把城完全毀滅,約書亞怎樣對待耶利哥耶利哥,也照樣對待艾城和艾城的;又基遍居民已經與以色列人議和,並可以在這地,

2 他們就非常懼怕。因為基遍城,好像座王城;又因為基遍比艾城,城裡所有的人都是勇士。

3 因此,耶路撒冷亞多尼.洗德派人到希伯崙何咸、耶末毗蘭、拉吉雅非亞和伊磯倫底璧那裡去,對他們說:

4 “求你們上我這裡來幫助我,我們好攻打基遍,因為基遍已經與約書亞和以色列人議和了。”

5 於是亞摩利人的那,就是耶路撒冷、希伯崙、耶末、拉吉和伊磯倫,聯合起來,帶著他們所有的軍隊上去,在基遍的對面安,攻打基遍

6 約書亞擊敗五基遍人就派人到吉甲中約書亞那裡去,:“不可丟棄你的僕人,求你快快上我們這裡來拯我們、幫助我們;因為地的亞摩利人所有的都集合起來攻擊我們。”

7 於是約書亞和所有能作戰的人,以及所有英勇的戰士,都一起從吉甲上去。

8 耶和華對約書亞:“你不要怕他們,因為我已經把他們交在你裡了;他們必沒有一能在你面前站立得住。”

9 於是約書亞乘夜從吉甲上去,突然到他們那裡。

10 耶和華使他們在以色列人面前潰亂,約書亞在基遍地擊殺他們,沿著伯.和崙的上坡追趕他們,擊打他們,直到亞西加和瑪基

11 他們從以色列人面前逃跑,正在下伯.和崙斜坡的時候,耶和華上降冰雹在他們身上,一直到亞西加,打他們;被冰雹的,比以色列人用刀的還多。

12 日月停止那時,就是耶和華把亞摩利人交以色列人的時候,約書亞在以色列人面前對耶和華:“太陽啊,停在基遍月亮啊,停在亞雅崙。”

13 於是太陽停住,月亮站住,直到以色列人在仇敵的身上報了仇。這事不是在《雅煞珥》上嗎?太陽天空中站住,不急速下落,約有一整

14 在這日以前或這日以耶和華的禱告,沒有像這日一樣的,因為耶和華以色列作戰。

15 後來,約書亞和眾以色列人回到吉甲那裡去。

16 生擒就地正法那逃跑了,躲藏在瑪基大洞裡。

17 有人告訴約書亞,說:“那已經到了,都躲藏在瑪基大洞裡。”

18 約書亞:“你們把幾塊石頭輥到洞那裡去,並派人到洞去看守他們。

19 你們卻不可站著,要追趕你們的仇敵,從面擊殺他們,不可讓他們逃進自己的城中,因為耶和華你們的已經把他們交在你們的裡了。”

20 約書亞和以色列人把他們殺得慘敗,直到把他們滅絕為止,那些逃脫的人都逃進設防的城裡;

21 以色列人都平平安安回到瑪基大中約書亞那裡。沒有話攻擊以色列人

22 約書亞:“你們打開,把那從洞裡拉出來,帶到我這裡來。”

23 眾人就照著執行,他們把那,就是耶路撒冷、希伯崙、耶末、拉吉和伊磯倫,從洞裡拉出來,帶到約書亞那裡去。

24 把那五個帶到約書亞那裡去的時候,約書亞把所有的以色列人都召了來,對那些與他同去作戰的軍長:“你們走前來,把踏在這些的頸項上。”他們就走前來,把踏在那些的頸項上。

25 約書亞對他們:“你們不要懼怕,不要驚慌;總要堅強勇敢,因為耶和華必這樣對待你們要攻打的所有仇敵。”

26 ,約書亞把那個王殺,懸在上;他們就懸在上,直到晚上

27 到了日落的時候,約書亞吩咐人把他們從上取,丟在他們躲藏過的洞裡,把幾塊石頭放在洞;這些石頭一直存到今日。

28 約書亞攻取南部各城在那,約書亞佔領了瑪基大,用刀擊殺了那城的人和那城的,把城中所有的人完全毀滅,不容一人逃脫;他對待瑪基大就像對待耶利哥一樣。

29 約書亞和跟他在一起的眾以色列人從瑪基大往立拿去,攻打立拿。

30 耶和華把立拿和立拿的也交在以色列人裡,約書亞用刀攻擊那城,殺了城裡所有的人,不容一人逃脫;他對待立拿就像對待耶利哥一樣。

31 約書亞和跟他在一起的眾以色列人從立拿往拉吉去,對著拉吉安營,攻打這城。

32 耶和華把拉吉交在以色列人裡,第二約書亞就佔領了拉吉,用刀攻擊那城,殺了城中所有的人,跟他對立拿所行的一切一樣。

33 那時,基色荷蘭上來幫助拉吉,約書亞就把他和他的人民都擊殺了,沒有留下一人。

34 約書亞和與他在一起的眾以色列人從拉吉往伊磯倫去,對著伊磯倫安營,攻打這城。

35 一天,他們佔領了這城,用刀攻擊那城,殺了城中所有的人;那一天約書亞把他們完全毀滅,跟他對拉吉所行的一切一樣。

36 約書亞和與他在一起的眾以色列人從伊磯倫上希伯崙去,攻打這城。

37 他們佔領了這城,用刀攻擊這城,殺了這城的,又攻擊屬於這城的城,殺了城中所有的人,不容一人逃脫,跟他對伊磯倫所行的一切一樣,把這城和城中所有的人完全毀滅。

38 約書亞和與他在一起的眾以色列人回到了底璧,攻打這城。

39 約書亞佔領了這城,抓住這城的,又佔領了屬於這城的一切城;以色列人用刀擊殺他們,把城中所有的人都毀滅了;約書亞不容一人逃脫,他怎樣對待希伯崙,也照樣對待底璧和底璧的;也好像他對待立拿和立拿的一樣。

40 這樣,約書亞擊殺了全地的人,就是地、地、高原和坡的人,以及那些地方所有的,不容一人逃脫;約書亞照著耶和華以色列的的吩咐,把有氣息的都完全毀滅了。

41 約書亞從加低斯.巴尼亞擊殺他們,直到迦薩,又從歌珊全地擊殺他們,直到基遍

42 約書亞在這次戰役中擊敗了這些和佔領了他們的地,是因為耶和華以色列的以色列作戰。

43 於是約書亞和與他在一起的眾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。


To not to be found any more, signifies not to rise again.

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。
