1 還未攻取之地約書亞老了,年紀不小;耶和華對他:“你已經老了,年紀不小;還有很多的地有待征服。

2 還剩下來的地,就是非利士人的全境和基述人的全地,

3 埃及東面的西曷河,向北直到以革倫的境界(這都算是迦南人的地方),由非利士人的首領管轄的迦薩人、亞實突人、亞實基倫人、迦特人、以革倫人的地方;並且有亞衛人,

4 他們是在南方,以及迦南人全境和屬西頓人的米亞拉,直到亞弗和亞摩利人的境界;

5 還有迦巴勒人的地和東面的黎巴嫩全境,從黑門的巴力.迦得,直到哈馬口;

6 黎巴嫩直到米斯利弗.瑪音,所有地的居民,就是所有的西頓人,我必在以色列人面前把他們趕出去。你只要照著我吩咐你的,把這地抽籤分給以色列人作產業。

7 現在你要把這地分給個支派和瑪拿西個支派作產業。”

8 兩個半支派在河東的分地瑪拿西另半個支派,跟流本人和迦得人,已經得了摩西約旦河東賜他們的產業,是照著耶和華的僕人摩西他們的,

9 就是從亞嫩谷邊的亞羅珥和谷中間的城,以及米底巴的整片平原,直到底本;

10 還有在希實本作的亞摩利人的西宏所有的城,直到亞捫人的境界;

11 又有基列地、基述人和瑪迦人的境界,以及整個黑門、巴珊全地,直到撒迦;

12 另有巴珊王噩的全國,他在亞斯他錄和以得來作王;他是利乏音人留下的餘民。這些地方的人,摩西都把他們擊殺了,趕走了。

13 以色列人卻沒有趕走基述人和瑪迦人;因此,基述人和瑪迦人以色列人中間,直到今日。

14 只有利未支派,摩西沒有把產業他們;他們的產業就是獻耶和華以色列的的火祭,正如耶和華對他們所的。

15 流本支派的分地摩西按著流本支派的家族,把產業了他們。

16 他們的境界是從亞嫩谷邊的亞羅珥起,包括谷中間的城、靠近米底巴的整片平原、

17 希實本和平原上屬希實本所有的城、底本、巴末.巴力、伯.巴力.勉、

18 雅雜、基底莫、米法押、

19 基列亭、西比瑪、地上的細列哈.沙轄、

20 伯.毗珥、毗斯迦山坡、伯.耶西末、

21 平原上所有的城和亞摩利人的西宏的全國。這西宏曾經在希實本作摩西把他和米甸的首領以未、利金、蘇珥、戶珥和利巴都擊殺了。這些都是西宏的侯,在那地。

22 以色列人的人中,比珥的兒子占卜者巴蘭也被他們用刀所

23 流本人領土的疆界是約旦河,這就是流本人按著家族得著的產業所包括的眾城,和屬於這些城的村莊

24 迦得支派的分地摩西按著迦得支派的家族把產業分迦得支派。

25 他們的境界包括雅謝和基列所有的城,以及亞捫人的一土地,直到拉巴前面的亞羅珥;

26 從希實本直到拉抹.米斯巴和比多寧,又從瑪哈念直到底璧的境界;

27 還有在中的伯.亞蘭、伯.寧拉、疏割、撒分,就是希實本西宏國中的餘地,以約旦河作疆界,直到基尼烈的底端,都在約旦河東。

28 這就是迦得人按著家族得著的產業所包括的城,和屬於這些城的村莊

29 瑪拿西支派的分地摩西把產業分瑪拿西個支派,是按著瑪拿西個支派的家族分他們的。

30 他們的境界是從瑪哈念起,包括巴珊全地、巴珊噩的全國,並且在巴珊的睚珥的所有村落,共六十座城,

31 還有基列的一和亞斯他錄、以得來,就是在巴珊,噩的王國的兩座城,都是按著家族分給瑪拿西兒子瑪吉的孫子,就是分給瑪吉的一孫子。

32 以上這些地方是摩西約旦河東,耶利哥對面的摩押平原所分配的產業。

33 可是利未支派,摩西卻沒有把產業分他們,因為耶和華以色列的就是他們的產業,正如耶和華對他們所的。

  

Exploring the Meaning of 約書亞記 13      

Joshua 13: The start of the tribal territory allocations.

Now that Israel had conquered the land of Canaan, the Lord commanded Joshua to divide the land between the twelve tribes. The next seven chapters tell how the the land of Canaan was divided (see Swedenborg’s work, Arcana Caelestia 1413, to read more about the spiritual meaning).

Chapter 13 deals with the territories given to the tribes of Reuben, Gad and one half of Manasseh, all of which are on the other side of the river Jordan. Reuben was given the southern lands; Gad was given the extensive middle region, much of which is an area called Gilead; and half the tribe of Manasseh received the northern land which is on the other side of the Jordan.

It is also worth noting that the first few verses say much of the land remained to be conquered. However, at the end of chapter 11, we read that Joshua took the whole land as the Lord had commanded Moses.

This may seem contradictory, but spiritually it fits very well. In our regeneration, we aim to conquer our self-centred nature, and allow the Lord to rule us with his truth. This is spiritually ‘conquering the whole land’. But even so, our natural thoughts and desires sometimes rise up to trouble us, and these times are like the parts of the land that remain to be conquered. This is why we must recognize our complete dependence on the Lord (Arcana Caelestia 8326).

The Lord giving land as inheritance to each of the twelve tribes represents the way that He gives us our spiritual life. As we do the work of spiritual ‘conquering’ - living by our purpose to serve the Lord - we feel more and more that we can use our understanding of God and His Word in our actions every day.

The twelve tribes stand for the whole spectrum of what spiritual life involves, and each tribe relates to a specific quality of our spiritual living (Arcana Caelestia 3858). For example, we need to be discerning, positive, respectful of others, and so on. Each tribe has a sizeable area of the land, and is part of the integrity of the whole nation.

The territories given to Reuben, Gad and half of Manasseh are not part of Canaan, but they are linked to it. These areas represent our outward life: the way we work, live, rest, and relate with other people. This is the ‘casing’ of our spiritual life, and it is essential.

The tribe of Reuben – the eldest son of Jacob – stands for our initial need to see the truths from the Lord in the Word. By ‘seeing’ we mean meeting them, looking carefully, being attentive, coming to understand what they ask of us, and realising how important they are. It is not a vague impression that the Lord’s teachings are important, but a real first step for us (Arcana Caelestia 3866).

The tribe of Gad stands for our ability to see that knowledge and truth need to be used to perform good works. Gad’s name means ‘a troop,’ calling to mind soldiers marching in formation to go and sort things out properly. This is something we can apply to ourselves and to the world around us. We just need to watch that it doesn’t get too heavy-handed (See Swedenborg’s work, Apocalypse Explained 435[7]).

The tribe of Manasseh represents the spiritual good which supports our will to live a life which is just, fair and honourable because it is based on God. In fact, Manasseh – which means ‘forgetfulness’ – stands for our need to remember that ‘my will’ is really ‘the Lord’s will for me’. Our will needs to be focused on outward life and also inwardly open to the Lord, which is why half of Manasseh has land beyond the Jordan and half has land within Canaan (Arcana Caelestia 5353).

埃及
在圣经中,埃及的意思是知识和爱知识。从好的意义上说,这意味着通过《圣经》从主那里获得真理的知识,但从自然的意义上说,它只是意味着要储存和占有的世俗知识。而且即使是来自圣经的知识也不一定是好的:如果我们学习它们的目的是使它们有用,那么它们就充满了天使的思想。但如果只是为了认识事物或为了学问的名声而学习它们,那它们就是。 所以,埃及是一个你去学习东西的地方,但要想成为天国,你就必须摆脱无菌的 "知",前往迦南地,在那里,知识充满了内心对善的渴望。 有趣的是,当约瑟统治埃及时,埃及是他父亲和兄弟的天堂。这说明,当一个人的内在心灵在学问之地统治的时候,可以学到很多有用的东西。但最终出现了一个不认识约瑟的法老,以色列子民就被奴役了。法老代表着外在的心灵;当它掌管的时候,知道的兴奋和自满会使内在的心灵沦为一种奴役。心灵--就像以色列子民一样--最终会从外在的表象中制造出砖头,或人为的假象。

在圣经时代,特别是旧约时代,许多人都是游牧民族,他们住在帐篷里,可以快速地打点、移动和重新搭建。当然,还有一些人住在房子里,一般是用石头和木头做的,相当永久。介于这两者之间的是更大、更精致的帐篷式结构,称为帐棚或住所;摩西为约柜所建的帐棚就是以这种模式为基础。 那么,"住 "在某个地方,意义重大--它比单纯的参观要多得多--但却不如住在那里永久。而事实上,在《圣经》中,住在某处,代表着进入那种属灵的状态,并与之交往,但不一定是永久的。 同时,"住处 "代表着激发居住在其中的人的各种爱,从最邪恶的--例如以赛亚书第9章中的 "那些住在死亡阴影里的人"--到会幕本身的崇高状态,会幕是作为主的住处而建造的,代表着天堂的所有细节。

約旦河
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。

人的心灵由两部分组成,一是意志,一是理解,一是爱与情的座席,一是智慧与知识的座席。在《圣经》中,君王在理解中代表事物:真事物由那些好的或友好的国度代表;假事物(被认为是真的)由坏的或不友好的国度代表。 迦南地代表内心的思想,在那里发生了关于善恶、生命、上帝和天堂的思想。在最高的意义上,它代表了天堂本身,而在那片土地上统一的以色列王国的三位国王--扫罗、大卫和所罗门--分别代表了《圣经》中的神圣真理,因为它分别在字面、内在的精神和最内在的天体意义上被理解。   对于一个在生活中几乎随心所欲的人来说,真理之王统治自己生活的想法可能会显得很压抑,就像撒母耳描述的那样。但对于已经接受了灵性重生需要的人来说,虽然这种真理的统治有时会感到困难,但却被接受为必要。他们承认主,正如他在圣经中所揭示的那样,是他们的王。起初,这个王可能看起来喜怒无常或没有效力,就像扫罗一样,但当这个人努力理解真理,并将真理落实在生活中时,这个王就会变得更有力量,更讨人喜欢--以大卫为代表。而最后,这个王被看成是有智慧的,就像所罗门一样。   从埃及到巴比伦,或从尼罗河到幼发拉底河,迦南周围的国家和部落,代表着外在心灵的领域,有时与内在的心灵结盟,有时又与内在的心灵交战。这些国家的国王都代表着真理,或者至少是他们认为是真实的想法,对他们来说是作为真理来运作的,即使是假的。

在《圣经》中,当文中提到耶和华的本质,即爱本身时,就称他为 "耶和华"。当文中提到爱的表达时,他被称为 "上帝"--《圣经》称之为神圣的真理。 对其他神的提法,无论是正面的还是负面的,都反映了这个意思。在积极的情况下--比如天使和人被称为神,或者主被称为神中之神--这些神代表着从主那里来的真实思想。在消极的情况下--比如当以色列人一再采用邻居的神时--那些神代表着错误和扭曲的思想,攻击善和真。

土地
"土 "和 "地 "在含义上有什么不同吗?乍一看似乎没有,两者都是指构成我们所居住的地球陆地的土壤。 但如果你仔细想一想,其含义是有不同方向的阴影的。我们倾向于在更广泛的意义上使用 "土"--指各地的所有土壤或任何地方的土壤。"地 "则比较具体,指的是我们恰好站在上面的那部分土,或者是指我们打算耕种或以其他方式使用的某部分土。 在《圣经》中也是如此。"地 "指的是一个人或一个社会的外在--他们的日常思想和行为--在广义、一般意义上。"地 "指的是我们外在生活中随时可以培养、随时可以使用的部分。 当然,修行涉及到松土(打破我们分散注意力的习惯和思想)和播种(从向善的愿望中产生的真正观念和想法)。当这些种子开始生长时,我们就开始真正有用了。 简而言之,圣经中的 "地 "可以是指接受主的教导的人或团体,也可以是指接受了主的教导并正在使用的人或教会。也可以是指接受了主的教导,并将其运用的人或教会。
