1 當時,約書亞召了流便人、迦得人,和瑪拿西支派的人來,

2 對他們耶和華僕人摩西所吩咐你們的,你們都遵守了;我所吩咐你們的,你們也都從了。

3 你們這許多日子,總沒有撇離你們的弟兄,直到今日,並守了耶和華─你們所吩咐你們當守的。

4 如今耶和華─你們照著他所應許的,使你們弟兄得享平安,現在可以轉回你們的帳棚,到耶和華的僕人摩西在約但河東所賜你們為業之地。

5 只要切切的謹慎遵行耶和華僕人摩西所吩咐你們的誡命耶和華─你們的,行他一切的道,守他的誡命,專靠他,盡心盡性事奉他。

6 於是約書亞為他們祝福,打發他們去,他們就回自己的帳棚去了。

7 瑪拿西支派,摩西早已在巴珊分他們地業。這支派,約書亞在約但河西,在他們弟兄中,分他們地業。約書亞打發他們回帳棚的時候為他們祝福

8 對他們:你們帶許多財物,許多牲畜和、銅、,並許多衣服,回你們的帳棚去,要將你們從仇敵奪來的物,與你們眾弟兄同分。

9 於是流便人、迦得人、瑪拿西支派的人從迦南地的示羅起行,離開以色列人,回往他們得為業的基列地,就是照耶和華摩西所吩咐的得了為業之地。

10 流便人、迦得人,和瑪拿西支派的人到了靠近約但河的一迦南地,就在約但河那裡築了一座;那看著高

11 以色列人流便人、迦得人、瑪拿西支派的人靠近約但河邊,在迦南地屬以色列人的那邊築了一座

12 全會眾一見,就聚集在示羅,要上去攻打他們。

13 以色列人打發祭司以利亞撒的兒子非尼哈,往基列地去見流便人、迦得人、瑪拿西支派的人;

14 又打發個首領與非尼哈同去,就是以色列每支派的個首領,都是以色列軍中的統領。

15 他們到了基列地,見流便人、迦得人,和瑪拿西支派的人,對他們

16 耶和華全會眾這樣,你們今日去不跟從耶和華,干犯以色列的,為自己築一座,悖逆了耶和華,這犯的是甚麼罪呢?

17 從前拜毘珥的罪孽還算小麼?雖然瘟疫臨到耶和華的會眾,到今日我們還沒有洗淨這罪。

18 你們今日竟去不跟從耶和華麼?你們今日既悖逆耶和華,明日他必向以色列全會眾發怒。

19 你們所得為業之地,若嫌不潔淨,就可以過到耶和華之地,就是耶和華的帳幕所住之地,在我們中間得地業。只是不可悖逆耶和華,也不可得罪我們,在耶和華我們以外為自己築

20 從前謝拉的曾孫亞干豈不是在那當滅的物上犯了罪,就有忿怒臨到以色列全會眾麼?那在所犯的罪中不獨死亡。

21 於是流便人、迦得人、瑪拿西支派的人回答以色列軍中的統領

22 大能者耶和華!大能者耶和華!他是知道的!以色列人也必知道我們若有悖逆的意思,或是干犯耶和華(願你今日不保佑我們),

23 為自己築,要去不跟從耶和華,或是要將燔祭、素祭、平安祭獻在上,願耶和華親自討我們的罪。

24 我們行這事並非無故,是特意做的,:恐怕日後你們的子孫對我們的子孫:你們與耶和華以色列的有何關涉呢?

25 因為耶和華把約但河定為我們和你們這流便人、迦得人的交界,你們與耶和華無分了。這樣,你們的子孫就使我們的子孫不再敬畏耶和華了。

26 因此我們:不如為自己築一座,不是為獻燔祭,也不是為獻別的祭,

27 乃是為你我中間和你我人中間作證據,好叫我們也在耶和華面前獻燔祭、平安祭,和別的祭事奉他,免得你們的子孫日我們的子孫,你們與耶和華無分了。

28 所以我們:日後你們對我們,或對我們的後人這樣我們就可以回答,你們我們列祖所築的耶和華的樣式;這並不是為獻燔祭,也不是為獻別的祭,乃是為作你我中間的證據。

29 我們耶和華我們帳幕前的以外,另築一座,為獻燔祭、素祭,和別的祭,悖逆耶和華,今日去不跟從他,我們斷沒有這個意思。

30 祭司非尼哈與會中的首領,就是與他同來以色列軍中的統領,見流便人、迦得人、瑪拿西人所,就都以為美。

31 祭司以利亞撒的兒子非尼哈對流便人、迦得人、瑪拿西:今日我們知道耶和華我們中間,因為你們沒有向他犯了這罪。現在你們救以色列人脫離耶和華的了。

32 祭司以利亞撒的兒子非尼哈與眾首領離了流便人、迦得人,從基列地回往迦南地,到了以色列人那裡,便將這事回報他們。

33 以色列人以這事為美,就稱頌,不再提上去攻打流便人、迦得人、毀壞他們所的地了。

34 流便人、迦得人給起名,意思:這我們中間證明耶和華

Exploring the Meaning of Joshua 22      

Napsal(a) Rev. Julian Duckworth

Joshua 22: The tribes of Reuben, Gad and half Manasseh return.

With the land of Canaan now settled by Israel, the time had come for the men of Reuben, Gad, and one half of Manasseh to return to the other side of the Jordan, where their wives, children, cattle and sheep were left. The men of these two and a half tribes had been ordered to fight alongside the other tribes of Israel, and only then to return home.

They left, and when they came to the banks of the River Jordan, they built a large altar to the Lord. When the rest of Israel caught word of this, they wanted to go to war with these tribes, because they felt the altar was a sacrilege - Israel had the tabernacle for its worship of the Lord. They sent Phineas the priest to ask why they had built the altar. These tribes across the Jordan replied that in the future, the people of Israel may move against them, and reject them. They said the altar would serve as a witness to their worship of the Lord, just as the Israelites in Canaan worshiped. This answer pleased the priest, and when he told the leaders of Israel, it pleased them too.

The spiritual meaning of this episode is a very important one for us. The tribes living on the other side of the River Jordan stand for the worldly activities of our outward life, which in themselves are a very important part of our spiritual life. These actions make up the external part of spiritual life, in which we are able to do good (see Swedenborg’s work, Arcana Caelestia 9824[2]).

The tribes building an altar to God portrays our understanding that all the good we do, and all the use we provide, is possible because of the Lord. He is the giver of all good, which is why we must serve the Lord. Without use, spiritual thoughts and beliefs do not have a foundation (Arcana Caelestia 9473[3]).

Reuben, Gad and half of Manasseh said that the people of Israel might cut them off in the future. In spiritual terms, this would be to separate spiritual life and external life in daily living. This would result in such things as hypocrisy, and faith without charity, both of which are a threat to our spiritual well-being (see Swedenborg’s work, Doctrine of Life 4).

The altar, which was built on Canaan’s side of the Jordan before these tribes crossed over, was to stand as a witness to the union between the tribes within Canaan and the tribes across the Jordan, as one nation before the Lord (Arcana Caelestia 9714).

This unity means that we must be equally present in three areas of life: in the depths of our heart, in our worship and adoration of the Lord; in our mind, in our understanding and delight in the Lord’s Word with all its truth; and in our outward actions, where our acknowledgement of the Lord as our God leads us to be sincere, just, moral, fair, compassionate and dedicated to the service of God.

The answer from the three tribes pleased the priest and, in turn, the leaders of Israel. This reception represents our affirmation that ‘being spiritual’ does not take the place of helping others, but really demands that we serve the Lord in our daily actions (see Swedenborg’s work, Apocalypse Explained 325[4]).

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。

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。

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。

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。
