1 迦南諸聯盟對抗以色列人在約旦河西,住在上、高原和對著黎巴嫩沿岸所有的,就是赫人、亞摩利人、迦南人、比利洗人、希未人、耶布斯人的見了這些事的時候,

2 聚集起來,同心協力地要與約書亞和以色列人交戰。

3 基遍人計騙約書亞基遍居民見了約書亞向耶利哥和艾城所行的事,

4 就施詭計,假冒使者而來,把舊的布和破裂又修補過的舊皮酒馱在上,

5 上穿著補過的舊鞋,身穿舊衣服,所帶的食物又乾又碎。

6 他們去到吉甲中約書亞那裡,對約書亞和以色列人:“我們是從遠地的,現在求你們和我們立約。”

7 以色列人對這些希未:“你們也許是這地的居民,若是這樣,我們怎樣和你們立約呢?”

8 他們對約書亞:“我們是你的僕人。”約書亞問他們:“你們是甚麼人?是從哪裡的?”

9 他們回答約書亞:“你的僕人為了耶和華的名從很遠的地方而,因為我們見了他的名聲和他在埃及所行的一切事,

10 以及他對約旦河東亞摩利人的兩個,就是希實本西宏和在亞斯他錄的巴珊噩,所行的一切事。

11 所以我們長老我們本國所有的居民我們:‘你們裡要帶著旅途用的乾糧,去迎見以色列人,對他們我們是你們的僕人,現在求你們和我們立約。’

12 我們出門到你們這裡來的時候,從家裡帶出來作乾糧的這餅還是熱的;看哪,現在都又乾又碎了。

13 這些皮酒袋,我們盛酒的時候,還是新的;你看,現在都破裂了。我們這些衣服和鞋因途遙遠,都穿舊了。”

14 以色列人取了他們一些食物,卻沒有求問耶和華的旨意。

15 於是約書亞與他們議和,和他們立約,容他們存活;會眾的首領也向他們起了誓。

16 以色列人奴役基遍人以色列人和他們立約之,過了,才見他們是自己的近鄰,是在這地的居民

17 於是,以色列人起程,第三日就到了他們的城市;他們的城市就是基遍、基非拉、比錄、基列.耶琳。

18 以色列人沒有擊殺他們,因為會眾的首領曾經指著耶和華以色列的向他們起了誓,全體會眾就都向首領發怨言。

19 眾首領對全體會眾:“我們曾經指著耶和華以色列的向他們起了誓,現在我們不能傷害他們。

20 我們要這樣待他們,就是容他們存活,免得神的忿怒因我們向他們所起的誓,臨到我們身上。”

21 眾首領又對會眾:“要讓他們存活。”於是他們就給全體會眾作了劈柴打的人,這是按照眾首領對他們的吩咐。

22 約書亞把他們召了來,質問他們:“你們為甚麼欺騙我們:‘我們離你們很遠’,其實你們卻是在這地的?

23 現在你們要受到咒詛,你們中間必不斷有人作奴僕,為我的聖所作劈柴打的人。”

24 他們回答約書亞,:“因為你的僕人確實地聽見,耶和華你的曾經吩咐他的僕人摩西,要把這整片土地你們,並且要在你們面前把這地上所有的居民都消滅,因此,我們因你們的緣故,很怕喪命,才行了這事。

25 現在,你看,我們都在你的裡,你看怎樣處置我們算為、算為對,就怎樣行吧。”

26 約書亞就這樣處置他們,救了他們脫離以色列人以色列人就沒有他們。

27 在那一天,約書亞指派他們在耶和華選擇的地方,為會眾和耶和華的祭壇作劈柴打的人,直到今日。

Joshua 9: The Gibeonites deceive Israel.

After Israel conquered Jericho and then Ai, the news about the strength of the Children of Israel - and their mighty God, Jehovah - spread quickly among the people of Canaan. In this chapter, the people of Gibeon came up with a plan to trick Joshua and the Israelites into granting them safety.

To preserve themselves, the Gibeonites cooked up a story that they had come from far away. They dressed in old clothing and worn-out sandals, and brought shabby wine-skins and moldy bread as proof of their long journey. After questioning these travelers, Joshua agreed to guarantee their safety, and the Israelites made a covenant to let them live. Note that the Israelites did not consult the Lord.

In the end, the Gibeonites admitted that they lived close by and were neighbors of Israel, just as the Hivites (the Gibeonites' ancestors) had been with Abraham. Joshua, unable to revoke his promise to them, made them wood-cutters and water-carriers for the altars of the Lord.

This chapter offers us several spiritual lessons. The main one is that there is a place for simple, well-intentioned goodness in our spiritual life, along with our love of God and our love for other people (See Swedenborg's exegetical work, Arcana Caelestia 3436, for details). This is what the Gibeonites stand for; they were not warlike but peaceful, content to live usefully day after day. This is an illustration of natural good, which is an important part of life in this world and in heaven (Arcana Caelestia 3167).

On a spiritual level, their story about living in a country far-away means that when we live good, well-intentioned lives, we are ‘far away’ from the evils of the Canaanites. Although the Gibeonites lived among the Canaanites, their higher values were entirely different. So while the Gibeonites deceived Israel to save themselves, they spoke truthfully when they said: “we come from a place a very long way away” (See Swedenborg's work, Heaven and Hell 481).

Their tattered and torn appearance is meant to illustrate the hard work of doing good. It can be quite wearing to continue doing good things, especially when we feel it is all up to us. Acknowledging that all good is from the Lord renews us, and keeps us from the burden of merit.

In the same vein, their worn-out appearance is also about our relationship with the Word. Little children love and delight in the stories of the Word, but as they grow up, this love dwindles (Arcana Caelestia 3690). But as adults, we have the choice to find those guiding principles from the Word, helping us to keep leading good lives.

The fact that Joshua commanded the Gibeonites to cut wood and draw water also holds spiritual significance. The beauty of wood is that it comes from living trees, and can be turned into many, many useful things. It stands for the steady, humble wish to do good each day (See Swedenborg's work, True Christian Religion 374). This must be present in our worship at the altars of the Lord.

Drawing water provides essential, life-giving refreshment for others. Water stands for truth, and our better actions draw the water of life for the sake of others. Truly, acknowledging the goodness in other people is part of our faith in God. This story shows us that we must allow others to live and to serve everything of God, just as Joshua showed mercy toward the Gibeonites.

Významy biblických slov


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。

約旦
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。  

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。

黎巴嫩
'Lebanon' signifies spiritual good. 'Lebanon' signifies the church regarding the perception of truth from the rational self.


"伟大 "这个词在圣经中用来代表一种具有强烈的爱和感情、对善的渴望的状态;圣经用其他词汇来代表思想、观念、智力的事情。 如果你仔细想想,这是有道理的,因为一个愿望可以涉及到一连串的想法和观念。比如说,你想帮助孩子完成她的学校作业。这是一个好的愿望。要付诸行动,你可能想知道她在不同科目上的成绩如何,她在某些科目上有什么困难,你是否对这个科目有足够的了解,如果你不能帮助她,还有谁可能帮助她,什么时候是合作的好时机,你是否有一个好的工作空间等等。这些都是分开的想法,由一个善的愿望串联起来的。所以圣经用 "许多"、"众多 "这样的词来形容知识性的东西--这些词意味着可以分开来数的东西的集合,而用 "大 "来形容对善的渴望--这个词意味着一些大的东西,但却是统一的,本质上不可数的东西。

我们的脚是我们身体最底层的部分,它们非常有用!在《圣经》中,脚代表了我们灵性自我中最低级、最功利的部分--"自然 "层面。这个生活的日常层面涉及到常规的任务和要求,以及与之相关的思想。它不是非常深刻或内省,但它是有用的--就像脚一样。 主和教会团体的这种对应关系也是如此。主的神性自然引导我们通过相对简单的顺服(想想十条诫命,和两条大诫命)。教会也有一个自然的层面,在这个层面上,他们以简单而具体的方式服务于他们的社区。

吉甲
Gilgal signifies the doctrine of natural truth, serving for introduction into the church.


圣经中的营地代表着属灵的秩序--一个人(或一个教会团体)对善的愿望和如何成为善人的真实想法的全部集合,所有的人都被设置在适当的安排中,以相互支持并作为一个整体工作。 终极的例子是以色列子民的营会,分为十二个支派,并按详细的指示设置。由于它的组织,它代表了天堂本身,天使们都在最适合他们最深爱和思想的地方。这就是为什么巴兰在《民数记》第24章中,从山上俯视营地时,将它描述得如此美丽。"雅各啊,你的帐棚和以色列啊,你的帐棚是何等的美好如同山谷铺开,如河边的花园,如耶和华所种的木麻黄树,又如水边的雪松树。" 从相反的意义上说,以色列敌人的阵营代表着地狱的无间道秩序,以及邪恶和错误信仰的结构,在邪恶的人身上统治。...

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。

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。

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。

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。

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。

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。

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。


Like other common verbs, the meaning of "give" in the Bible is affected by context: who is giving what to whom? In general, though, giving...


圣经》中的 "善 "代表善,似乎比较循环,但从一般意义上讲,确实如此! 情况是这样的。主是爱本身,是智慧本身的形式和表现,神圣的爱和神圣的智慧流向我们,流向世界,流向《圣经》,源源不断,变化无穷。天主之爱产生了我们的爱、我们的情感、我们对善的欲望和我们能感受到的快乐;天主之智产生了事实、知识、智慧、理解和人类的智慧。而我们越是能使我们生命的这两个方面和谐,我们就能变得越是高尚--这又会使我们更快乐、更有用,最终成为更有天使气质的人。当然,我们越是远离,真理就越是变成虚假,爱就越是变成自爱。所以,这种向善的欲望和对真理的理解之间的舞蹈是人类生活的动力,《圣经》中几乎所有的东西都与它在精神层面上有关。 当某件事在圣经中被称为 "善 "的时候,一般是在描述最高的、最纯洁的爱的形式,无论讨论的是什么精神状态。这通常被简单地概括为 "善 "或 "慈爱"--这是一种关怀的状态,或对邻居的爱。

祭壇
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。
