1 犹大支派按着宗族拈阄所得之地是在尽边,到以东的交界,向南直到寻的旷野。

2 他们的界是从的尽边,就是从朝汊起,

3 通到亚克拉滨坡的边,接连到寻,上到加低斯巴尼亚的边,又过希斯仑,上到亚达珥,绕到甲加,

4 接连到押们,通到埃及,直通到为止。这就是他们的界。

5 东界是从南边到约但河口。界是从约但河口的汊起,

6 上到伯曷拉,过伯亚拉巴的边,上到流便之子波罕的磐

7 从亚割,上到底璧,直向亚都冥坡对面的吉甲;又接连到隐示麦泉,直通到隐罗结,

8 上到欣嫩子,贴近耶布斯的界(耶布斯就是耶路撒冷);又上到欣嫩西边的顶,就是在利乏音边界

9 又从顶延到尼弗多亚的源,通到以弗仑的城邑,又延到巴拉(巴拉就是基列耶琳);

10 又从巴拉往西绕到西珥,接连到耶琳边(耶琳就是基撒仑);又到伯示麦过亭纳,

11 通到以革伦边,延到施基仑,接连到巴拉;又通到雅比聂,直通到为止。

12 西界就是和靠近之地。这是犹大人按着宗族所得之地四围的交界。

13 约书亚照耶和华所吩咐的,将犹大人中的一段地,就是基列亚巴,分耶孚尼的儿子迦勒。亚巴是亚衲族的始祖(基列亚巴就是希伯仑)。

14 迦勒就从那里赶出亚衲族的个族长,就是示筛、亚希幔、挞买;

15 又从那里上去,攻击底璧的居民。(这底璧从前名叫基列西弗。)

16 迦勒:谁能攻打基列西弗将城夺取,我就把我女儿押撒他为妻。

17 迦勒兄弟基纳斯的儿子俄陀聂夺取了那城,迦勒就把女儿押撒他为妻。

18 押撒过门的时候,劝丈夫向他父亲求一块田,押撒一下,迦勒问他:你要甚麽?

19 :求你赐福我,你既将我安置在地,求你也泉。他父亲就把上泉下泉赐他。

Exploring the Meaning of 约书亚记 15      

Napsal(a) Rev. Julian Duckworth

Joshua 15: Judah’s territory and more about Caleb.

This chapter describes the territory given to the tribe of Judah, and lists many of its cities and borders. Judah received a major portion of the land of Canaan; its eastern border was the Salt Sea (the Dead Sea), and the western border was the Great Sea (the Mediterranean).

Although Judah was the fourth son of Jacob, he played a more significant role in many of the Old Testament stories than his older brothers did. So, it is not surprising that the tribe of Judah received extensive territory in the south of Canaan, which in later time became the nation of Judah, along with the tribe of Benjamin’s small territory. The name ‘Judah’ also eventually led to the name ‘Jewish’, coming from the Roman province of Judaea. The name ‘Judah’ also means “praise”, specifically praise of God (see Swedenborg’s work, Arcana Caelestia 456).

Praise itself is a commendation of a person’s good qualities. To give praise is part of our love for our neighbour; to receive praise underscores our sense of our own value. To praise the Lord is to give thanks to Him, and to affirm the difference that the Lord makes in our life. Ultimately, praise is part of our faith in the Lord to lead us through this life and for eternity.

This uplifting, positive spiritual meaning of Judah does not mean that Judah (the man in the Old Testament) was without faults. He had his flaws, as everyone does, but at times Judah changed the course of events for a better outcome. It was Judah who persuaded his brothers to sell Joseph rather than kill him, and he also offered himself as a hostage for the sake of his brothers (Arcana Caelestia 4815[2]).

Chapter 15 lists very many locations in Judah’s territory. Here are just a few of the places listed, along with their meaning and spiritual significance:

Judah = “praise”
Spiritually = our worship of God

Which includes these, and many more aspects…

Zin = “flat, level ground”
Spiritually = life under God’s guidance

Kadesh Barnea = “holy wanderings”
Spiritually = becoming purified

Beth Hoglah = “house of the partridge”
Spiritually = bringing to birth

En Rogel = “water spring of the foot”
Spiritually = life in everyday activities

Jerusalem = “dwelling place of peace; wholeness”
Spiritually = our highest spiritual state

Nephtoah = “to be open”
Spiritually = to be part of all life

Timnah = “allotted portion”
Spiritually = what the Lord has created me for

Mount Hebron, which was in the territory of Judah, was given to Caleb as an inheritance because of his faithfulness to God. We read in this chapter that he conquers the giants living there, and drives them away from Mount Hebron. Caleb makes a promise that whoever takes the nearby city of Kirjath-sepher will have his daughter, Achsah, for a wife. Caleb’s brother’s son, Othniel, captures the city and marries Achsah. Caleb blesses Achsah and gives her springs of water upon her request, and he also gives Othniel a field.

The spiritual meaning of this touching story is that our spiritual life is intended to come together to be like a family (Arcana Caelestia 3020), just as Caleb, Achsah and Othniel are all close members of a family. Spiritual life is about bringing together our beliefs, our loves and affections, our intentions, and our actions. These different aspects of spiritual life become like one family where everyone – or everything – is interwoven together.

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。

兄弟
"兄弟 "在《圣经》中有两种用法,在现代语言中仍有体现。一种是指实际的血缘关系;另一种是以 "人的兄弟关系 "的方式,更广泛地指共同性。 第二种用法在圣经中是一致的,意思是指那些活在行善的爱中的人。这可以是不同层次的,从简单的顺服的喜乐,到服侍别人的慈善之爱,再到主自己的崇高之爱。但在这些爱中都是兄弟。 启示录解释》,第746页。 "这样的人之所以被称为弟兄,是因为他们都有一位父亲,即主;那些在爱主的好处上,在对邻舍的仁爱上,都是主的儿子。(S)既然是一位父亲的儿子,他们也是弟兄。而且,主父的大诫命,就是要他们彼此相爱,因此,是爱使他们成为弟兄......" 有血缘关系的兄弟,情况就比较复杂,其意义更多的是受兄弟的身份和故事背景的影响。一般来说,它们反映了行善的愿望和对如何行善的理解之间可能存在的统一。该隐和亚伯以及几对双胞胎都是如此。雅各布和以扫、犹大的儿子撒拉和法勒斯、约瑟的儿子以法莲和玛拿西;在每一个案例中,一个代表了行善的愿望,另一个代表了对真理的理解。 因为这种善与真的兄弟情谊,兄弟可以根据上下文的不同,代表任何一种。事实上,约瑟的兄弟们的意义在他的故事中不断变化,因为他们代表了犹太信仰的先驱的精神衰落和重生。...

父亲
父亲在话语中的意思是指最里面的东西,在那些遵从主的命令的事情上,是指好的东西。在最高的意义上,父亲是指主自己,是创造者。在自然儿女的生成中,是父亲提供灵魂或最内在的生命容器,以及一种内在的遗传,母亲则提供灵魂用来形成身体的所有物质,再加上一种外在的遗传。在这个过程中,灵魂通过父亲来自主,而不是来自父亲,因为所有的生命都来自主。 聪明的人称主为他的父亲,称教会为他的母亲,因为他内心的爱来自主,但通过教会所教导的真理得到了形式和实际。那些因此而生出的东西,就是一个人属灵的 "儿女"。 在新约中,当谈到耶稣和天父的时候,指的是外在的表现,里面有神圣的本身作为灵魂。因为耶稣是由一个天然的母亲所生,所以他有一个天然的身体和天然的犹太人的遗传。在他的一生中,当他受到地狱的诱惑时,他慢慢地把他从母亲那里得来的一切,换成了他自己里面的东西,即天父。这样做,他使自己与他内心的父合而为一,所以他可以真正地说:"我和我的父是一体的"。


Donkeys signify the things relating to the self-intelligence of the sensual man; and camels, the things of self-intelligence in the natural man (Isa 30:6, 7.)

二十
'Twenty,' when referring to a quantity, signifies everything, or fullness, because it is ten twice. In Genesis 18:31, 'twenty', like all numbers occurring in the...


'Nine' signifies conjunction.

村庄
'Villages' signify the external aspects of faith and the church. Rituals are the external parts of the church. Doctrines are the internal parts when they...

十四
Fourteen, as in Genesis 31:40, signifies a first period of time. The fourteenth year, as in Genesis 14:5, signifies the first temptation of the Lord...


圣经中的数字 "四 "代表着事物被联系在一起或连接在一起。这部分是因为四是二乘以二,而二代表了我们对美好的愿望和对真理的理解之间的最终联系。我们也可以从大多数建筑都是长方形的事实中看到,四条边连接在一起,成为一个整体。我们也把方向分为北、东、南、西四个方向,谈到某件事情的 "四角 "就是指全部。所以我们的特殊思维很自然地把四条边看成是连成一个整体。

歌珊
‘The land of Goshen,’ as in Genesis 46:28, signifies the innermost parts of the natural mind.


A company might have executives setting policy and strategy, engineers designing products, line workers building them, managers handling personnel and others handling various functions. They...

拉巴
Rabbath


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。
