1 亞干犯罪以色列人在那當毀滅的物上犯了不忠實的罪;因為猶大支派中,謝拉的曾孫、撒底的孫子、迦米的兒子亞干,取了當毀滅的物,耶和華就向以色列人發怒。

2 以色列人戰敗那時,約書亞從耶利哥派人到伯特利東邊,靠近伯.亞文的艾城去,吩咐他們:“你們上去窺探那地。”那些人就上去,窺探艾城。

3 他們回來,對約書亞:“不需要全體民都上去;只要大約二就可以上去攻打艾城了;不必勞動全體民都上那裡去,因為那裡的很少。”

4 於是民中約有上那裡去,但他們竟在艾城的面前逃跑了。

5 艾城的擊殺了他們約三十;從城前追趕他們,一直追到示巴琳;在山坡上把他們擊潰;民的心就極其驚怕。

6 約書亞長老的求問約書亞就撕裂自己的衣服,以色列人長老,在耶和華的約櫃前,一同俯伏在地,直到晚上,也把塵土撒在上。

7 約書亞:“唉!耶和華啊,你為甚麼領這人民過約旦河,為要把我們交在亞摩利人的中,使我們滅亡呢?我們寧願約旦河那邊倒好。

8 主啊!以色列人既然在仇敵面前轉身逃跑,我還有甚麼可的呢?

9 迦南人和這地所有的居民見了,就必圍困我們,把我們名字從這世上剪除,那時你為你的名要怎樣行呢?”

10 耶和華的回答耶和華對約書亞:“你起來,為甚麼這樣臉伏在地呢?

11 以色列人犯了罪,違背了我吩咐他們的約定,因為他們取了那當毀滅的物,他們竊,並且說謊,又把那當毀滅的物放在自己的物件中。

12 所以,以色列人在他們的仇敵面前站立不住,在他們的仇敵面前轉身逃跑,因為他們成了當毀滅的。如果你們不把那當毀滅的物從你們中間除掉,我就必不再與你們同在了。

13 起來,要人民自潔,對他們:‘你們要自潔,預備明天;因為耶和華以色列的這樣以色列啊!你們中間有那當毀滅的物;除非你們把那當毀滅的物從你們中間除去,你們在仇敵的面前就不能站立得住。

14 到了早晨,你們要按著支派前來,耶和華抽籤抽中的支派,要按著宗族前來;耶和華抽籤抽中的宗族,要按著家庭前來;耶和華抽籤抽中的家庭,男丁要一個一個前來。

15 如果那藏有當毀滅的物的人被抽籤抽中了,他和他所有的一切都要用焚燒;因為他違背了耶和華的約,又因為他在以色列中作了愚昧的事。’”

16 抽籤抽中亞干約書亞清起來,要以色列人按著支派前來;結果,猶大支派被抽籤抽中了;

17 他要猶大宗族前來,結果,謝拉的家族被抽籤抽中了;他要謝拉家族的男丁一個一個前來,結果,撒底被抽籤抽中了;

18 他要撒底家中的男丁一個一個前來,結果,亞干被抽籤抽中了,亞干是迦米的兒子、撒底的孫子、謝拉的曾孫,是屬於猶大支派的。

19 約書亞對亞干:“我兒,我勸你把榮耀歸耶和華以色列的,向他認罪,告訴我你作了甚麼事,不可向我隱瞞。”

20 亞干認罪與受罰亞干回答約書亞,:“我實在得罪了耶和華以色列的;我作過的事是這樣的。

21 我在戰利品中,見了件美麗的示拿衣服、二千二八十克子,和條重五七十克的條;我因貪愛這些物件,就把它們拿去了;現在埋藏在我帳棚的地裡,子在底。”

22 約書亞就派人跑到亞干的帳棚裡,果然見到東西埋藏在那裡,子在底

23 他們就把東西從帳棚中拿出到約書亞和以色列人那裡,擺在耶和華面前。

24 約書亞和全體以色列人一起把謝拉的曾孫亞干和那子、那件衣服、那條,以及亞干的兒女、牛、、帳棚和他所有的一切,都帶上亞割去。

25 約書亞:“你為甚麼給我們招惹災禍呢?今天耶和華必使你遭受災禍。”於是全體以色列人石頭把他打死。他們用石頭打死他們以後,就把一切用燒了。

26 眾人又在亞干身上起了一石頭,這石頭一直存到今日;於是耶和華就回心意,不發烈怒。因此那地方亞割,直到今日。

Joshua 7: The defeat at Ai, and the sin of Achan.

This chapter opens with the statement that Israel had sinned at Jericho, because an Israelite named Achan had kept something for himself, against the Lord's commandment. (But Joshua doesn't know this yet.)

The great victory at Jericho was quickly followed by an embarrassing defeat at Ai. The Israelites hadn't expected much difficulty in taking Ai, and sent just a few thousand men to attack it. They were routed.

Spiritually, we might say that pride goes before a fall, but more specifically, in the work of our regeneration we are never to rest on our laurels, but to always stay alert to each situation and how we are internally handling it. (Apocalypse Revealed 158)

Understandably, Joshua pours out his heart to the Lord, wondering why they have even crossed over the Jordan to simply be destroyed. The Lord tells him that their defeat at Ai was because Israel sinned by taking some of the forbidden things of Jericho. The Lord explains how to put this right, by identifying the wrongdoer and destroying him and his family.

Note the weakness of Joshua (as earlier also with Moses at times) when things go wrong and he feels confused, full of doubt, hurt and afraid. When things go well, we go well; when things go badly, we tend to go to pieces. And we ask, “Why? Why this, why me, why now?”

The Lord’s answer is a command, “Get up! Why are you lying on your face?” This is a pretty plain meaning: The Lord wants us to use such setbacks to be able to go forward, seeing the problem as a challenge and an opportunity and learning point.

Joshua is told to find the source of the wrong and the defeat. From all the tribes, one tribe will be selected by the Lord. From all its families, one family will be chosen. From all its households, one household will be chosen, and from that household, one man will be chosen. And Achan was the man and he is brought out. (Arcana Caelestia 5135)

This drawing-by-lot is a remarkable picture of our spiritual self-examination. We’re told that to make our general confession of ‘having done what we should not have done’ is almost worthless because we are likely to just carry on the same afterwards. (Arcana Caelestia 8390) Our personal inventory must be specific. What kind of thoughts have I been allowing myself recently? What did that make me feel in my heart? Did I welcome it or want nothing to do with it? It’s a kind of pinpointing, and it leads us to Achan, whose name in Hebrew means ‘trouble’ and ‘troubler’. (The New Jerusalem and its Heavenly Doctrine 164)

Achan, discovered, doesn't hide or deny his wrongdoing but openly admits that he has sinned against the Lord. He'd seen a beautiful garment, much silver, and a chunk of gold, and took them, and hid them in the earth in the middle of his tent. He confesses and indeed, his confession is transparent. So must our confession be when we see things in ourselves that go against the Lord’s truths and ways. They bring forth his stolen goods from his tent.

Then, in a comprehensive way, Joshua took everything Achan owned in its entirety, including the stolen goods, to the Valley of Achor (a name again meaning ‘trouble’) and stoned him and all his family and burned them with fire and raised a heap of stones over it all. This, to us, might well sound like a brutal and an unwarranted punishment.

Spiritually, the Lord does not punish us, ever. Rather, he commands that we turn from our evils, and suffer the consequences if we don't. The Lord does this to help and encourage us to stop following our own way and to commit ourselves to following and living His way. We can only conquer Canaan, representing heaven, when we do this. (Arcana Caelestia 8622)

在《圣经》中,有很多描述人回头看、回头看或回去的例子。在大多数情况下,这是一种消极的,有时是毁灭性的(就像罗得的妻子,当她回望所多玛的毁灭时,变成了一根盐柱子)。一般情况下,这代表着我们的状态,当我们进入到一个新的精神境界,发现自己希望得到旧的安逸和轻松时,回去代表着回到更早的低级阶段。 当 "回 "与物联系在一起的时候,"回 "的意义更多的是字面意义。当有人拿东西回来或给东西时,其精神意义大多是以物与行为人为中心。

長老
圣经中提到长老主要有两个方面。首先是以色列的长老,其次是启示录中24位坐在神宝座旁的长老。在这两种情况下,他们都是指智慧,智慧来自于我们在日常生活中运用所学到的真理去做正确的事。以色列的长老指的是称为以色列的教会中智慧的主要事物。启4章提到的长老指的是最高天的智慧,进而指的是整个天的智慧。 就像圣经中的大多数含义一样,这可以根据上下文的不同而改变为一个被扭曲成相反的含义。这种爱不是充满知识和爱邻舍的心,而是可以被扭曲为对自己的自我智慧的骄傲,并导致走向邪恶而不是善良。在该亚法家坐着审判耶稣的长老和祭司长,显示了代表的另一面。

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。

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。

抽籤
"引 "在圣经中的用法有很多种,一般是指拉、引或动的意思。人们最常见的是汲水、靠近他人、抽出东西、拔剑和吸气等等。这些都有不同的意思,不过它们都是主动的,都涉及到对属灵事物的渴望。 靠近某人代表着不同精神层面之间的沟通,通常会将我们的外在--我们的日常行为以及与之相关的思想和感受--与我们的内在,或者说驱动我们精神的更深层次的原则和动机进行沟通。 汲水代表着一种学习和指导的状态,这是有道理的,因为水代表着一般的真理,尤其是更基本的关于外在生活的真实想法。 把东西从某处引出来--在不同的时候用于人、动物和物体--代表一种强迫的状态,即把一种精神状态或知识强加给某人。 剑在战斗中代表着真观念,或者在相反的意义上代表着假观念。所以拔剑意味着要么以假意攻击真意,要么以真意攻击假意。 最后,吸气,代表着收集最基本的想法,即如何应用我们表面上接受的概念的想法。例如,我们可能会接受这样的概念:礼貌是很重要的,并由此聚集到我们应该使用 "请 "和 "谢谢 "这两个词的想法。这些都是我们不加考察就接受的东西,它们对外部生活很重要,即使它们没有什么内在的重要性。

火,在精神意义上,根据上下文,既可以意味着爱,也可以意味着恨,就像自然之火既可以让你感到舒适,让你感到温暖,也可以让你感到害怕,让你的房子烧毁。我们的语言也反映了这一点--我们使用的概念,比如燃烧的仇恨或燃烧的爱。所以,火就是爱,要么是对邻居和对主的爱,要么,在不好的意义上,是对自己的爱,如果不受良心的约束,会导致对任何反对它的人的仇恨。

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。

在《圣经》中召见某人或召唤某人,代表了一种对高低生活状态之间结合的渴望。例如,想象一个处于相对外在知识状态的人--一个在外在层面上对世界和事物如何运作了解很多的人--对更深层、更属灵的思想产生了兴趣,并寻求一个对属灵事物有了解的老师或导师。这种寻求在《圣经》中可能被描述为 "呼召"。 呼唤也可以是处于较高状态的人向处于较低状态的人发出的我--当然主呼唤人的时候也是如此。
