1 耶路撒冷亚多尼洗德见约书亚夺了艾城,尽行毁灭,怎样待耶利哥耶利哥,也照样待艾城和艾城的,又基遍居民以色列人立了和约,在他们中间,

2 就甚惧怕;因为基遍城,如都城般,比艾城更,并且城内的人都是勇士。

3 所以耶路撒冷亚多尼洗德打发人去见希伯仑何咸、耶末?兰、拉吉雅非亚,和伊矶伦底璧,说:

4 求你们上来帮助我,我们好攻打基遍,因为他们与约书亚和以色列人立了和约。

5 於是个亚摩利,就是耶路撒冷、希伯仑、耶末、拉吉、伊矶伦,大家聚集,率领他们的众军上去,对着基遍,攻打基遍

6 基遍人就打发人往吉甲中去见约书亚,:你不要袖不顾你的仆人,求你速速上来拯我们,帮助我们,因为地亚摩利人的诸聚集攻击我们

7 於是约书亚和他一切兵丁,并大能的勇士,都从吉甲上去。

8 耶和华对约书亚:不要怕他们;因为我已将他们交在你里,他们无一能在你面前站立得住。

9 约书亚就终夜从吉甲上去,猛然临到他们那里。

10 耶和华使他们在以色列人面前溃乱。约书亚在基遍的杀败他们,追赶他们,在伯和仑的上坡击杀他们,直到亚西加和玛基

11 他们在以色列人面前逃跑,正在伯和仑下坡的时候,耶和华上降冰雹在他们身上,(冰雹原文作石头)直降到亚西加,打他们。被冰雹的,比以色列人用刀的还多。

12 耶和华将亚摩利人交付以色列人的日子,约书亚就祷告耶和华,在以色列人眼前:日头阿,你要停在基遍月亮阿,你要止在亚雅仑

13 於是日头停月亮止住,直等国民向敌人报仇。这事岂不是在雅煞珥上麽?日头在当中停住,不急速下落,约有一日之久。

14 在这日以前,这日以耶和华的祷告,没有像这日的,是因耶和华以色列争战。

15 约书亚和以色列众人回到吉甲中。

16 逃跑,藏在玛基大洞里。

17 有人告诉约书亚说:那已经到了,都藏在玛基大洞里。

18 约书亚:你们把几块石头辊到洞,派人看守,

19 你们却不可耽延,要追赶你们的仇敌,击杀他们尽边的人,不容他们进自己的城邑,因为耶和华─你们的已经把他们交在你们里。

20 约书亚和以色列人杀败他们,直到将他们灭尽;其中剩下的人都进了坚固的城。

21 众百姓就安然回玛基大中,到约书亚那里。没有一敢向以色列人

22 约书亚打开,将那从洞里带出来,领到我面前。

23 众人就这样行,将那,就是耶路撒冷、希伯仑、耶末、拉吉、伊矶伦,从洞里带出来,领到约书亚面前。

24 带出那五到约书亚面前的时候,约书亚就召了以色列来,对那些和他同去的军长:你们前来,把踏在这些的颈项上。他们就前来,把踏在这些的颈项上。

25 约书亚对他们:你们不要惧怕,也不要惊惶。应当刚强壮胆,因为耶和华必这样待你们所要攻打的一切仇敌。

26 约书亚将这王杀上。他们就在上直晚上

27 日头要落的时候,约书亚一吩咐,人就把尸首从上取,丢在他们藏过的洞里,把几块石头放在洞,直存到今日。

28 当日,约书亚夺了玛基大,用刀击杀城中的人和;将其中一切人尽行杀灭,没有留下一个。他待玛基大,像从前待耶利哥一样。

29 约书亚和以色列众人从玛基大往立拿去,攻打立拿。

30 耶和华将立拿和立拿的也交在以色列人里。约书亚攻打这城,用刀击杀了城中的一切人,没有留下一个。他待立拿,像从前待耶利哥一样。

31 约书亚和以色列众人从立拿往拉吉去,对着拉吉安营,攻打这城。

32 耶和华将拉吉交在以色列人里。第二约书亚就夺了拉吉,用刀击杀了城中的一切人,是照他向立拿一切所行的。

33 那时基色荷兰上来帮助拉吉,约书亚就把他和他的民都击杀了,没有留下一个。

34 约书亚和以色列众人从拉吉往伊矶伦去,对着伊矶伦安营,攻打这城。

35 当日就夺了城,用刀击杀了城中的人。那日,约书亚将城中的一切人尽行杀灭,是照他向拉吉一切所行的。

36 约书亚和以色列众人从伊矶伦上希伯仑去,攻打这城,

37 就夺了希伯仑和属希伯仑的诸城邑,用刀将城中的人与,并那些城邑中的人,都击杀了,没有留下一个,是照他向伊矶伦所行的,把城中的一切人尽行杀灭。

38 约书亚和以色列众人回到底璧,攻打这城,

39 就夺了底璧和属底璧的城邑,又擒获底璧的,用刀将这些城中的人尽行杀灭,没有留下一个。他待底璧和底璧,像从前待希伯仑和立拿与立拿一样。

40 这样,约书亚击杀全地的人,就是地、地、高原、坡的人,和那些地的诸,没有留下一个。将凡有气息的尽行杀灭,正如耶和华以色列的所吩咐的。

41 约书亚从加低斯巴尼亚攻击到迦萨,又攻击歌珊全地,直到基遍

42 约书亚时杀败了这些,并夺了他们的地,因为耶和华以色列的以色列争战。

43 於是约书亚和以色列众人回到吉甲中。

  

Exploring the Meaning of 约书亚记 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.”

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。

"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。

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。...

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。

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》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。

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。
