1 約書亞再攻艾城耶和華對約書亞:“你不要懼怕,也不要驚慌,你只管帶領所有能作戰的人,起來上艾城去;你,我已經把艾城的和他的人民、城市土地都交在你裡了。

2 你怎樣對待耶利哥耶利哥,也要照樣對待艾城和艾城的;只是城中的戰利品和牲畜,你們可以據為己有;你要在城面設下攻城的伏兵。”

3 於是,約書亞和所有能作戰的起來上艾城去;約書亞選了三萬英勇的戰士,漏夜派他們出去,

4 吩咐他們說:“你們注意,要在城面埋伏攻城;不可離城太遠,人人都要作好準備。

5 我和所有與我一起的人,要向城推進。城裡的人像前一次出來攻擊我們的時候,我們就在他們面前逃跑

6 他們必定出來追趕我們我們就把他們引出城來,因為他們必定:‘這些人像前一次一樣在我們面前逃跑了。’所以我們要在他們面前逃跑

7 那時你們就要從埋伏的地方起來,佔領那城,因為耶和華你們的必把城交在你們的裡。

8 你們佔領了城以後,就要放燒城;要照著耶和華的行事;你們要謹慎,我已經吩咐你們了。”

9 約書亞差派他們去了,他們就上到埋伏的地方去,伯特利和艾城的中間,就是在艾城的西邊。那一夜,約書亞卻在人民中間宿。

10 約書亞清起來,召集人民上艾城去,他和以色列的長老走在人民的前面。

11 所有與他在一起的戰士都上去,迫艾城,在城的面安營;在約書亞和艾城中間有一個山谷,

12 約書亞挑了大約,要他們埋伏在伯特利和艾城中間,就是艾城的西面。

13 於是他們把眾民,就是在城的全軍和在城西的伏兵都布置好了。那一夜,約書亞走進了山谷之中

14 艾城的見了這情形,就和艾城的人急忙在清起來,按著所定的時候出到亞拉巴,要與以色列人交戰;卻不知道在城面有伏兵要攻擊他。

15 約書亞和以色列人在他們面前裝敗,沿著通往曠野的逃跑

16 城裡的眾民都被召集,去追趕他們;艾城的人追趕約書亞的時候,就都被誘離城。

17 艾城和伯特利城沒有留下一個不出來追趕以色列人;他們撇下了敞開的城門,去追趕以色列人

18 攻陷艾城耶和華對約書亞:“你向著艾城伸出中的短槍,因為我要把城交在你裡。”約書亞就向著艾城伸出裡的短槍。

19 他一伸,伏兵就從埋伏的地方急忙起來,衝進城去,把城奪取,並連忙放燒城。

20 艾城的人轉身見城裡濃煙沖,就全身乏力,不能逃跑;往曠野逃跑的以色列人就過來攻擊追趕他們的人。

21 約書亞和以色列人見伏兵已經奪取了城,又見城中濃煙上升,就回,擊殺艾城的人。

22 伏兵也出城攻擊艾城的人;艾城的人就被困在以色列人中間,前後受敵;於是以色列人把他們擊殺,沒有留下一個,也沒有一個逃脫。

23 他們活捉了艾城的,把他解到約書亞那裡。

24 以色列人在田間、在曠野,盡了所有追趕他們的艾城的居民,艾城的人全部倒在刀下,直到完全消滅;接著,以色列眾人回到艾城,用刀擊了城中的人。

25 一天被殺的,連帶女,共有一萬,就是艾城所有的

26 約書亞沒有收回伸出短槍的,直到把艾城的居民都消滅為止。

27 只有那城裡的牲畜和戰利品,以色列人照著耶和華吩咐約書亞的,都據為己有。

28 約書亞燒了艾城,使城永遠成為廢堆,一片荒涼,直到今日。

29 他又把艾城的懸在上,直到黃昏的時候;日落的時候,約書亞吩咐人把屍體上拿,丟在城門口那裡,又在屍體起了一石頭,這石頭一直存到今日。

30 以巴路上築宣讀律法那時,約書亞在以巴路上,為耶和華以色列的築了一座祭壇

31 是照著耶和華的僕人摩西吩咐以色列人的,照著摩西律法上所的,用未經過器打鑿的整塊塊築成的一座祭壇;在這祭壇之上,眾人向耶和華獻燔祭,也獻平安祭。

32 約書亞在那裡,當著以色列人面前,把摩西摩西律法抄石頭上。

33 全體以色列人和他們的長老長,以及審判,都站在約櫃的兩旁,在抬耶和華約櫃的利未支派的祭司前面;無論是寄居的,或是本地人,一對著基利心,一對著以巴路;正如耶和華的僕人摩西以前所吩咐的,好為以色列祝福

34 ,約亞宣讀律法上一切祝福和咒詛的,全都照著律法上所的一切。

35 摩西吩咐的一切,約書亞在以色列全體會眾和婦女、小孩,以及在他們中間來往的寄居者面前,沒有一句不向他們宣讀出來的。

Joshua 8: The fall of Ai and the renewal of the covenant.

The events of this chapter - and their spiritual meaning for us - follow on from the previous chapter. After their first setback at Ai, the Children of Israel take the city of Ai by using a clever ruse. Joshua chose thirty thousand men for the battle. The plan was for five thousand of them to hide near the city, while he led the main army to attack the city. Then, Joshua and his forces would pretend to run away, pursued by the men of Ai. Those who had hidden were then to come out, go into the city, and set it on fire. The men of Ai would see this and run back, get ambushed, and be caught between Joshua’s two armies.

It all happened as planned, and Israel took Ai. (See Arcana Caelestia 1557). As with Jericho, everything in Ai was commanded to be destroyed, except that in this case the livestock and the city’s spoils were to be kept. The whole city was burned and its king was hanged on a tree until sunset and then his body was thrown down at the city entrance with a great heap of stones put over it.

The basic spiritual meaning of any battle in the Bible such as this, is to show how a heavenly principle can and will overcome a hellish or evil attack, especially for us, during some temptation - when we seek to resist and fight back.

Evil is only strong in illusion and fear-mongering; when the light of what is true shines on evil it gets shown for what it is. (Heaven and Hell 49)

The city’s name “Ai” means “a heap”. The word gets used several times in the text of the chapter. A heap implies rubble and rubbish. Cities sometimes look noble and well-planned; in Ai’s case it was the very opposite - a heap, a ruin. (Heaven and Hell 586[2])

While Jericho generally represents our wrong thinking, which first stands in the way of our regeneration and spiritual will, Ai represents our evil emotions and our selfish passions. Both of them must fall before we can make further progress.

Joshua chooses a large number to go against a relatively few in Ai, who nevertheless all rush out to fight Israel. “There was not a man left in Ai or Bethel who did not go out after Israel. Thus they left the city open.” (Joshua 8:17)

Joshua’s tactic of drawing out the men of Ai means our challenge to evil - by confronting it with the truths and commandments we know and obey. Joshua’s pretence of fleeing away draws Ai out in glee, interpreting the flight as a real retreat. Then everything turns, and Joshua’s men go forward representing the power of the truth, the Word and our persuasion of their effectiveness in winning. (Arcana Caelestia 6344[4])

Ai’s men see their city on fire, for other Israelites entered Ai and set it ablaze. This represents the self-condemnation of evil, of hell, when it is exposed to what is true, heavenly and of God. But Joshua’s men, lying in ambush and waiting for the moment, represent our keen observation of how our selfish desires work to cause havoc in us. They are 5,000. Symbolically, in the Bible, five or its multiples always stand for a small amount - but enough to use.

Hanging the king of Ai stands for our need to put down the controlling power of any evil which stirs us. And all Ai is destroyed, because all evil must be turned against and refused.

Then, and only then, Joshua remakes the covenant with the Lord God; he builds an altar, he writes a copy on stones of the Law of Moses in the presence of all Israel, the priests stand in two groups in front of two mountains, then Joshua reads the words of blessing and cursing and all the Law of Moses.

After we resist any evil and its temptation, we must re-hear and re-affirm the truth that this was the Lord’s victory, not ours, and re-dedicate ourselves to the life the Lord gives us. (True Christian Religion 13[2])

土地
圣经中的“地球”可以表示一个人或一群志同道合的人,就像在教堂里一样。但是它专门指的是人的思想外部或群体的一般思想。如果天堂和大地同时被提及,那么心灵的内在和外在都是有意思的-阅读创作故事时要注意的事情。 “地球”是一个通用词,可以看作是其他特定词(如地面,田野或花园)的容器。当他们从圣经中学习真理,思考问题并试图将其应用于生活中时,这些都意味着一个升序的人。该系列作品代表了成为美好和明智的方式。 “地球”和“地面”是可以双向使用的术语,例如在撒种的寓言中(马太福音13:4-8)既有好的地面又有坏的地面,但是“田野”和“花园”是指头脑正在向美好的方向再生。 在《启示录》中,“地球”一词既被用作地面,因为我们以其自然意义使用它,也被用作群体的意义。本书中的动作发生在精神世界的中部地区,人们首先去过那里,他们被整理了出来。那里既有邪恶的人,也有善良的人,有时在教堂的尽头,邪恶会在做出伟大的判断之前产生巨大的影响。这种精神境界的水平被称为“地球”,巨龙被降落在该“地球”上(启12:9),而星辰掉落在其上(启12:4)。吞没巨龙洪水的“地球”是指教会中那些仍然诚恳的人,他们轻视巨龙的虚假洪水(启12:15)。

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。

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。


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。

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。

伯特利
当雅各做了一个著名的梦,梦见一个通向天堂的楼梯,他给这个地方起了个名字叫 "贝瑟尔",希伯来语的意思是 "上帝的家" 这个字面的意义反映在属灵的意义上。书中告诉我们,"贝瑟尔 "代表了我们对主神圣的爱的认识和理解,那是他对我们所有人的完美的爱,那是他的本质。当我们知道了主的爱,对主的爱有了一定的了解,那就使它在我们里面有了一个 "房子",让它在我们里面生长,影响我们自己的爱。 在旧约中,"贝瑟尔 "在后来的《旧约》中有相反的含义,在耶罗波安在那里设立金牛犊,使之成为偶像崇拜的中心之后。然后,它代表了从邪爱中产生的崇拜。

由于太阳代表着主,所以清晨和日出代表着一种开悟的状态,在经历了一段黑暗之后,会有新的清晰的认识。 在现代生活中,这种表现方式有很多。首先,长期以来的传统是将教堂的圣殿设在东方,朝向初升的太阳。人们在努力解决一个问题时,往往会决定 "睡一觉",期待明天早上答案会更清晰。而我们其实用 "黎明 "作为动词,表示突然的开悟。"当他盯着窗外看时,他恍然大悟,答案一直在他手中。"

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。

天堂是天上的和精神的东西。因此,它们是至高无上的东西,无论是天国还是地下世界的主国。这也指的是教会以及作为上帝王国或“教会”的每个人。因此,天堂表示与爱与慈善有关的所有事物,以及根植于其中的信仰,以及与内部崇拜有关的所有事物。它们以类似的方式表示与道的内在意义有关的所有事物。所有这些东西都是天堂,被称为“耶和华的宝座”。 如启示录21:1所述,“逝去的前天”象征着精神世界中那些仅在外在或表面上有好处的人们的社会。

永遠
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。

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。
