1 Ali se sinovi Izraelovi teško ogriješiše o "herem", jer je Akan, sin Karmija, sina Zabdijeva, sina Zerahova, od plemena Judina, uzeo od ukletih stvari, i Jahve se razgnjevi na sinove Izraelove.

2 Jošua pak posla ljude iz Jerihona u Aj, koji leži istočno od Betela, i reče im: "Uziđite onamo, izvidite kraj!" Ljudi odoše te izvidješe Aj.

3 Vrativši se k Jošui, rekoše mu: "Ne treba da onamo uzlazi sav narod; dvije do tri tisuće ljudi neka idu da osvoje Aj. Ne muči onamo sav narod, jer je ondje malo svijeta."

4 Pođe onamo oko tri tisuće ljudi od svega naroda, ali su morali pobjeći pred onima iz Aja.

5 Ajani pobiše oko trideset i šest ljudi i tjerali su ih ispred svojih vrata do Šebarima: pobili su ih na strmini. Klonu tada srce narodu kao da mu je voda u žilama.

6 Razdrije Jošua haljine svoje i baci se ničice pred Kovčegom Jahvinim, i ostade tako do večeri, on i starješine u Izraelu, posuvši glave pepelom.

7 Tada reče Jošua: "Jao, Gospode Jahve, zašto si preveo ovaj narod preko Jordana? Da nas predaš u ruke Amorejaca da nas pobiju? Kamo sreće da smo stali s onu stranu Jordana!

8 Oprosti, Gospode! Što drugo da rečem kad je Izrael okrenuo leđa pred svojim neprijateljima?

9 Ako to čuju Kanaanci i ostali žitelji zemlje, udružit će se protiv nas da zbrišu ime naše sa zemlje. Što ćeš, dakle, učiniti za veliko ime svoje?"

10 A Jahve odgovori Jošui: "Ustani! Zašto si pao ničice?

11 Izrael je sagriješio: prekršili su Savez kojim sam ih vezao. Zaista, uzeše ukleto, porobiše, posakrivaše i prisvojiše.

12 I zato Izraelci ne mogu izdržati pred svojim neprijateljima, okreću leđa pred protivnicima jer su postali ukleti. Ja ne mogu više biti s vama ako iz svoje sredine ne maknete proklete.

13 Ustani! Sazovi narod na posvećenje i reci mu: Posvetite se za sutra, jer ovako govori Jahve, Bog Izraelov: 'Kletva je u tebi, Izraele; i nećeš izdržati pred svojim neprijateljima sve dok ne odstranite kletvu iz svoje sredine.'

14 Zato sutra zorom pristupite pleme za plemenom; iz plemena koje odredi Jahve prići će rod za rodom, a onda iz roda koji označi Jahve pristupit će obitelj po obitelj, a iz obitelji koju označi Jahve pristupit će čovjek za čovjekom.

15 I tko se tada nađe s ukletom stvari, neka se spali on i sve što mu pripada, jer je prekršio Savez Jahvin i osramotio Izraela."

16 Urani Jošua ujutro i pozva Izraela po plemenima; pristupiše i otkri se pleme Judino.

17 Potom pristupi rod za rodom iz plemena Judina i pronađe se rod Zerahov. Pristupiše obitelji roda Zerahova, domaćin jedan za drugim, i pronađoše obitelj Zabdijevu.

18 Naposljetku naredi Jošua da pristupi obitelj Zabdijeva, muškarac jedan za drugim, i pronašao se Akan, sin Karmija, sina Zabdijeva, sina Zerahova, od plemena Judina.

19 Tada reče Jošua Akanu: "Sine moj, daj slavu Jahvi, Bogu Izraelovu, i priznaj mu što si učinio; objasni što si učinio i nemoj mi ništa tajiti."

20 Akan reče Jošui: "Zaista, ja sagriješih Jahvi, Bogu Izraelovu, i evo što sam učinio:

21 vidjeh u plijenu lijep šinearski plašt, dvije stotine srebrnjaka i zlatnu šipku vrijednu pedeset srebrnjaka, pa se polakomih i uzeh sebi. Eno je sve zakopano usred moga šatora, a srebro je odozdo."

22 Tada uputi Jošua poslanike, koji otrčaše u šator. I gle, sve bijaše zakopano u šatoru, a odozdo srebro.

23 Uzmu sve iz šatora i donesu Jošui i starješinama Izraelovim i prostriješe sve pred Jahvu.

24 Tada uze Jošua Akana, sina Zerahova, i srebro, plašt i zlatnu šipku, i sve sinove i kćeri njegove, volove njegove i magarad, i ovce, šator njegov i sve što bijaše njegovo te ga izvede u dolinu Akor. Pratio ih sav Izrael.

25 Reče Jošua: "Kako si ti nas unesrećio, tako danas tebe unesrećio Jahve!" I kamenova ga sav Izrael.

26 Potom navališe na njega gomilu kamenja, koje stoji do danas. Tako se Jahve ublaži od svoga žestoka gnjeva. Zbog toga se događaja prozva ono mjesto dolina Akor i tako se zove do danas.

  

Exploring the Meaning of Jošua 7

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)
