1 A Jerihon stajaše silno utvrđen i zatvoren pred sinovima Izraelovim. Nitko nije izlazio niti je tko ulazio.

2 Tada Jahve reče Jošui: "Evo, predajem ti u ruke Jerihon i kralja njegova s ratnicima.

3 Svi vi ratnici obiđite oko grada jedanput na dan. Tako činite šest dana.

4 A sedam svećenika neka nose pred Kovčegom sedam truba od ovnujskih rogova. Sedmoga dana obiđite sedam puta oko grada, a svećenici neka trube u trublje.

5 Pa kad otežući zatrube u rog ovnujski, neka sav narod, čim čuje glas trube, podigne silnu bojnu viku. I srušit će se gradski bedemi, a narod neka tada ulazi svaki odande gdje se nađe."

6 Jošua, sin Nunov, pozva k sebi svećenike i reče im: "Uzmite Kovčeg saveza, a sedam svećenika neka ponese sedam truba od rogova ovnujskih pred Kovčegom Jahvinim."

7 A narodu reče: "Pođite i obiđite oko grada, a ratnici neka idu pred Kovčegom Jahvinim."

8 I bi kako je Jošua zapovjedio narodu. Pođe sedam svećenika noseći trube od rogova ovnujskih: trubili su u rogove, a Kovčeg Jahvin iđaše za njima.

9 Ratnici pođoše pred svećenicima koji su trubili u trube, a zalaznica krenu za Kovčegom. Stupali su tako dok se glas truba razlijegao.

10 A narodu bijaše zapovjedio Jošua govoreći: "Ne vičite i ne dajte glasa od sebe i nijedna riječ neka se ne čuje iz vaših usta dok vam ne kažem: 'Vičite!' Tada neka odjekne bojna vika."

11 I naredi da Kovčeg Jahvin obiđe jednom oko grada pa da se vrate u tabor i ondje prenoće.

12 Sutradan urani Jošua, a svećenici ponesu Kovčeg saveza.

13 A sedam svećenika koji su nosili sedam truba od rogova ovnujskih pođu pred Kovčegom Jahvinim. Idući trubili su u trube, ratnici iđahu pred njima, a zalaznica pak za Kovčegom Jahvinim dok su trube odjekivale.

14 Tako i drugog dana obiđu jednom oko grada pa se vrate natrag u tabor. Tako su činili šest dana.

15 A sedmoga dana zorom ustanu i obiđu oko grada istim onakvim redom sedam puta. Samo su toga dana obišli oko grada sedam puta.

16 Za sedmog obilaska snažno zatrube svećenici u rogove, a Jošua reče narodu: "Kličite bojne poklike jer vam je Jahve predao grad!

17 Grad neka bude 'herem' Jahvi - uklet i predan uništenju sa svime što je u njemu. Samo bludnica Rahaba da ostane živa i svi koji budu s njom u kući, jer je ona sakrila uhode koje smo poslali.

18 A čuvajte se svega ukletog u gradu da i sami ne budete prokleti što ste uzeli ukleto, jer biste time navukli prokletstvo na tabor i unesrećili ga.

19 Zato sve srebro i zlato, sve bakreno i željezno posuđe neka bude posvećeno Jahvi i pohranjeno u riznicu."

20 Tada povika narod i odjeknuše trube. Kada se zaori glas truba i bojni povici naroda, padoše bedemi i narod prodrije u grad, svatko odande gdje se našao, i osvojiše ga.

21 I tada izvršiše kletvu ništeći oštricom mača sve što bijaše u gradu: muško i žensko, staro i mlado, volove, ovce i magarad.

22 A onoj dvojici što su uhodili zemlju reče Jošua: "Idite u kuću one bludnice pa izvedite ženu sa svima njezinima, kako joj se zakleste."

23 I mladi ljudi, uhode, odoše te izvedoše Rahabu, njezina oca i njezinu majku, braću i svu rodbinu. Izvedoše sve njezine i smjestiše ih izvan izraelskog tabora.

24 Spališe grad i sve što bijaše u njemu: uzeše samo srebro, zlato, tučano i željezno posuđe i staviše u riznicu Doma Jahvina.

25 Ali bludnicu Rahabu, svu njenu obitelj i sve njihovo poštedi Jošua. Ona ostade među Izraelcima sve do danas, jer je sakrila glasnike koje je poslao Jošua da uhode Jerihon.

26 Tada izreče Jošua ovu kletvu: "Proklet bio pred licem Jahve čovjek koji pokuša da ponovo gradi Jerihon: gradio mu temelje na svom prvencu, podizao mu vrata na svome mezimcu!"

27 Jahve je bio s Jošuom te se pronio glas o njemu po svoj zemlji.

Exploring the Meaning of Joshua 6      

Napsal(a) Rev. Julian Duckworth and New Christian Bible Study Staff

Joshua 6: The Fall of Jericho

Here, the first conflict for Israel in Canaan presents itself: the taking of the city of Jericho, which stands directly and obstinately in the path of the Israelites, preventing them from moving forward. This conflict embodies the whole essence and scope of all the rest of the conquests in the Joshua story, which in the inner meaning is to overcome and rule the things in our lives which oppose what God wants for us.

Jericho is to be taken with a siege, and God gives Joshua a procedure to follow: You shall march round the city once a day for six days in absolute silence. Seven priests shall carry seven rams’ horns before the ark. On the seventh day you shall march round the city seven times, and then the priests shall blow their trumpets. All the people are to shout with a huge shout, and then the walls of the city will fall down flat. And all the people are to go up and take the city.

This is quite unlike any other siege, where walls have to be scaled and fire catapulted in to burn things, but... this is a spiritual siege. The siege of Jericho represents how we are to lay siege to, or deal effectively with, our own evils and tendencies. It is the description blueprint for the battle between good and evil, which is our battle too. (See Doctrine of Faith 50).

In the Bible, Jericho is sometimes called the ‘city of palm trees’, giving a lovely idea of it. Its name means “a place of fragrance”, or, “his (the Lord’s) sweet breath”. It sounds perfect, but this has been usurped by invaders and takers who are now in complete possession of this sweet city and who will hold on for all they're worth (Apocalypse Explained 502[11]). This is really an account of the influence of hell in human life, and especially our unregenerate lives, when we are open to whatever feels self-gratifying.

Jericho, we hear, is shut up tight. It is not going to be an easy matter – because the work of regeneration never is – but this also describes hell’s fear; it is shut up tight because of the Israelites (Heaven and Hell 543). In us, when we become aware of a better way to live and we want to follow the Lord - whose yoke is easy and whose burden is light - hell will soon hit back in some devious imperceptible way to hold on to what it has got. It is scared of losing us.

This takes us to the siege and its tactics. The march once a day around the city for six days, carrying the ark, is to see every part of our situation from every angle, and it is also to parade our worship and adoration of the Lord (by parading the ark). The time period, six days, is always to do with the work involved in our regeneration as we see evil and shun it, pray to God, stand back and determine. (Arcana Caelestia 10373)

The seventh day involves seven marches round the city, then the trumpets and the shouts. This is the culmination, the Sabbath. For us, it is the avowal that we know the Lord is now ruling our will and our life and there will be no turning back or weakness of giving in. Jericho is now taken! The command is that every living thing in the city is to be completely destroyed because we must be unrelenting against all the things in our lives that go against God.

The gold, the silver, and the vessels of brass and iron, were put into the treasury of the house of Jehovah. The "gold and silver" represent the knowledges of spiritual truth and good, and "the vessels of brass and iron" represent knowledges of natural truth and good. In the profane hands of the idolaters of Jericho, those knowledges could be tools to serve dire falsities and evils. In the house of Jehovah, they could be serviceable knowledges, applied to good ends - hence their being salvaged. (See Heaven and Hell 487)

The prostitute Rahab (who had hidden Israel’s spies and confessed the Lord’s power) and all her family are brought out and given safekeeping. For us, this is the acknowledgement of the truth that we are sinful (as she was) and that if it were not for the Lord we would plunge into who knows what. But now we know and confess the power and truth of God. And then, the Israelites burn the city with fire and Joshua pronounces a curse on anyone who ever rebuilds this city. We are to abhor evil for what it is and be faithful to the Lord our God.

The story of the destruction of Jericho is then the pattern for all our resistance and resolve in seeing and overcoming evil, while confessing, as we do this, that the battle is the Lord’s. (Charity 166)
