1 耶路撒冷亞多尼洗德見約書亞奪了艾城,盡行毀滅,怎樣待耶利哥耶利哥,也照樣待艾城和艾城的,又基遍居民以色列人立了和約,在他們中間,

2 就甚懼怕;因為基遍城,如都城般,比艾城更,並且城內的人都是勇士。

3 所以耶路撒冷亞多尼洗德打發人去見希伯崙何咸、耶末毘蘭、拉吉雅非亞,和伊磯倫底璧,說:

4 求你們上來幫助我,我們好攻打基遍,因為他們與約書亞和以色列人立了和約。

5 於是個亞摩利,就是耶路撒冷、希伯崙、耶末、拉吉、伊磯倫,大家聚集,率領他們的眾軍上去,對著基遍,攻打基遍

6 基遍人就打發人往吉甲中去見約書亞,:你不要袖不顧你的僕人,求你速速上來拯我們,幫助我們,因為地亞摩利人的諸聚集攻擊我們

7 於是約書亞和他一切兵丁,並大能的勇士,都從吉甲上去。

8 耶和華對約書亞:不要怕他們;因為我已將他們交在你裡,他們無一能在你面前站立得住。

9 約書亞就終夜從吉甲上去,猛然臨到他們那裡。

10 耶和華使他們在以色列人面前潰亂。約書亞在基遍的殺敗他們,追趕他們,在伯和崙的上坡擊殺他們,直到亞西加和瑪基

11 他們在以色列人面前逃跑,正在伯和崙下坡的時候,耶和華上降冰雹在他們身上,(冰雹原文作石頭)直降到亞西加,打他們。被冰雹的,比以色列人用刀的還多。

12 耶和華將亞摩利人交付以色列人的日子,約書亞就禱告耶和華,在以色列人眼前:日頭阿,你要停在基遍月亮阿,你要止在亞雅崙

13 於是日頭停月亮止住,直等國民向敵人報仇。這事豈不是在雅煞珥上麼?日頭在當中停住,不急速下落,約有一日之久。

14 在這日以前,這日以耶和華的禱告,沒有像這日的,是因耶和華以色列爭戰。

15 約書亞和以色列眾人回到吉甲中。

16 逃跑,藏在瑪基大洞裡。

17 有人告訴約書亞說:那已經到了,都藏在瑪基大洞裡。

18 約書亞:你們把幾塊石頭輥到洞,派人看守,

19 你們卻不可耽延,要追趕你們的仇敵,擊殺他們儘邊的人,不容他們進自己的城邑,因為耶和華─你們的已經把他們交在你們裡。

20 約書亞和以色列人殺敗他們,直到將他們滅盡;其中剩下的人都進了堅固的城。

21 眾百姓就安然回瑪基大中,到約書亞那裡。沒有一敢向以色列人

22 約書亞打開,將那從洞裡帶出來,領到我面前。

23 眾人就這樣行,將那,就是耶路撒冷、希伯崙、耶末、拉吉、伊磯倫,從洞裡帶出來,領到約書亞面前。

24 帶出那五到約書亞面前的時候,約書亞就召了以色列來,對那些和他同去的軍長:你們前來,把踏在這些的頸項上。他們就前來,把踏在這些的頸項上。

25 約書亞對他們:你們不要懼怕,也不要驚惶。應當剛強壯膽,因為耶和華必這樣待你們所要攻打的一切仇敵。

26 約書亞將這王殺上。他們就在上直晚上

27 日頭要落的時候,約書亞一吩咐,人就把屍首從上取,丟在他們藏過的洞裡,把幾塊石頭放在洞,直存到今日。

28 當日,約書亞奪了瑪基大,用刀擊殺城中的人和;將其中一切人盡行殺滅,沒有留下一個。他待瑪基大,像從前待耶利哥一樣。

29 約書亞和以色列眾人從瑪基大往立拿去,攻打立拿。

30 耶和華將立拿和立拿的也交在以色列人裡。約書亞攻打這城,用刀擊殺了城中的一切人,沒有留下一個。他待立拿,像從前待耶利哥一樣。

31 約書亞和以色列眾人從立拿往拉吉去,對著拉吉安營,攻打這城。

32 耶和華將拉吉交在以色列人裡。第二約書亞就奪了拉吉,用刀擊殺了城中的一切人,是照他向立拿一切所行的。

33 那時基色荷蘭上來幫助拉吉,約書亞就把他和他的民都擊殺了,沒有留下一個。

34 約書亞和以色列眾人從拉吉往伊磯倫去,對著伊磯倫安營,攻打這城。

35 當日就奪了城,用刀擊殺了城中的人。那日,約書亞將城中的一切人盡行殺滅,是照他向拉吉一切所行的。

36 約書亞和以色列眾人從伊磯倫上希伯崙去,攻打這城,

37 就奪了希伯崙和屬希伯崙的諸城邑,用刀將城中的人與,並那些城邑中的人,都擊殺了,沒有留下一個,是照他向伊磯倫所行的,把城中的一切人盡行殺滅。

38 約書亞和以色列眾人回到底璧,攻打這城,

39 就奪了底璧和屬底璧的城邑,又擒獲底璧的,用刀將這些城中的人盡行殺滅,沒有留下一個。他待底璧和底璧,像從前待希伯崙和立拿與立拿一樣。

40 這樣,約書亞擊殺全地的人,就是地、地、高原、坡的人,和那些地的諸,沒有留下一個。將凡有氣息的盡行殺滅,正如耶和華以色列的所吩咐的。

41 約書亞從加低斯巴尼亞攻擊到迦薩,又攻擊歌珊全地,直到基遍

42 約書亞時殺敗了這些,並奪了他們的地,因為耶和華以色列的以色列爭戰。

43 於是約書亞和以色列眾人回到吉甲中。

  

Exploring the Meaning of 約書亞記 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。
