1 以色列人在当灭的物上犯了罪;因为犹大支派中,谢拉的曾孙,撒底的孙子,迦米的儿子亚干取了当灭的物;耶和华的怒气就向以色列人发作。

2 当下,约书亚从耶利哥打发人往伯特利东边、靠近伯亚文的艾城去,吩咐他们:你们上去窥探那地。他们就上去窥探艾城。

3 他们回到约书亚那里,对他:众民不必都上去,只要二上去就能攻取艾城;不必劳累众民都去,因为那里的少。

4 於是民中约有上那里去,竟在艾城面前逃跑了。

5 艾城的击杀了他们三十,从城前追赶他们,直到示巴琳,在下坡杀败他们;众民的心就消化如

6 约书亚便撕裂衣服;他以色列的长老把灰撒在上,在耶和华的约柜前俯伏在地,直到晚上

7 约书亚:哀哉!耶和华阿,你为甚麽竟领这百姓过约但河,将我们交在亚摩利人的中,使我们灭亡呢?我们不如在约但河那边倒好。

8 主阿,以色列人既在仇敌面前背逃跑,我还有甚麽可的呢?

9 迦南人和这地一切的居民见了就必围困我们,将我们的名从地上除灭。那时你为你的名要怎样行呢?

10 耶和华吩咐约书亚起来!你为何这样俯伏在地呢?

11 以色列人犯了罪,违背了我所吩咐他们的约,取了当灭的物;又窃,又行诡诈,又把那当灭的放在他们的家具里。

12 因此,以色列人在仇敌面前站立不住。他们在仇敌面前背逃跑,是因成了被咒诅的;你们若不把当灭的物从你们中间除掉,我就不再与你们同在了。

13 起来,叫百姓自洁,对他们:你们要自洁,预备明天,因为耶和华以色列的这样以色列阿,你们中间有当灭的物,你们若不除掉,在仇敌面前必站立不住!

14 到了早晨,你们要按着支派前来;耶和华所取的支派,要按着宗族前来;耶和华所取的宗族,要按着家室前来;耶和华所取的家室,要按着人丁,一个一个的前来。

15 被取的人有当灭的物在他那里,他和他所有的必被焚烧;因他违背了耶和华的约,又因他在以色列中行了愚妄的事。

16 於是,约书亚清起来,使以色列人按着支派前来,取出来的是犹大支派;

17 使犹大支派(原文是宗族)前来,就取了谢拉的宗族;使谢拉的宗族,按着家室人丁,一个一个的前来,取出来的是撒底;

18 使撒底的家室,按着人丁,一个一个的前来,就取出犹大支派的人谢拉的曾孙,撒底的孙子,迦米的儿子亚干。

19 约书亚对亚干:我儿,我劝你将荣耀归耶和华以色列的,在他面前认罪,将你所做的事告诉我,不要向我隐瞒。

20 亚干回答约书亚:我实在得罪了耶和华以色列的。我所做的事如此如此:

21 我在所夺的财物中件美的示拿衣服,二舍客勒子,子重五十舍客勒,我就贪爱这些物件,便拿去了。现今藏在我帐棚内的地里,子在衣服底

22 约书亚就打发人跑到亚干的帐棚里。那件衣服果然藏在他帐棚内,子在底

23 他们就从帐棚里取出,拿到约书亚和以色列众人那里,放在耶和华面前。

24 约书亚和以色列众人把谢拉的曾孙亚干和那子、那件衣服、那条子,并亚干的儿女、牛、、帐棚,以及他所有的,都带到亚割去。

25 约书亚:你为甚麽连累我们呢?今日耶和华必叫你受连累。於是以色列众人用石头打死他,将石头扔在其上,又用焚烧他所有的(他所有的原文作他们)。

26 众人在亚干身上成一石头,直存到今日。於是耶和华意,不发他的烈怒。因此那地方亚割(亚割就是连累的意思),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)

长老
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。

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。
