1 Kiam tion auxdis Jabin, regxo de HXacor, li sendis al Jobab, regxo de Madon, kaj al la regxo de SXimron kaj al la regxo de Ahxsxaf,

2 kaj al la regxoj, kiuj logxis norde sur la monto, kaj sur la stepo sude de Kinerot, kaj sur la malaltajxo, kaj en Nafot-Dor apud la maro,

3 al la Kanaanidoj oriente kaj okcidente, kaj al la Amoridoj kaj HXetidoj kaj Perizidoj, kaj Jebusidoj sur la monto, kaj al la HXividoj sub HXermon en la lando Micpa.

4 Kaj eliris ili kaj ilia tuta militistaro kun ili, granda nombro da homoj, kiel la sablo sur la bordo de la maro, kaj tre multe da cxevaloj kaj cxaroj.

5 Kaj kunigxis cxiuj tiuj regxoj, kaj venis kaj starigis siajn tendarojn kune apud la akvo Merom, por batali kontraux Izrael.

6 Kaj la Eternulo diris al Josuo:Ne timu ilin, cxar morgaux en cxi tiu tempo Mi transdonos ilin cxiujn mortigotajn al Izrael; iliajn cxevalojn vi lamigos, kaj iliajn cxarojn vi forbruligos per fajro.

7 Kaj eliris kontraux ilin Josuo kune kun cxiuj militistoj subite al la akvo Merom, kaj jxetis sin sur ilin.

8 Kaj la Eternulo transdonis ilin en la manojn de la Izraelidoj, kaj cxi tiuj batis ilin, kaj persekutis ilin gxis Granda Cidon kaj gxis Misrefot- Maim, kaj gxis la valo de Micpe oriente, kaj batis ilin tiel, ke ili lasis al ili neniun restanton.

9 Kaj Josuo agis kun ili tiel, kiel diris al li la Eternulo:iliajn cxevalojn li lamigis, kaj iliajn cxarojn li forbruligis per fajro.

10 Kaj en tiu tempo Josuo iris returne, kaj prenis HXacoron, kaj gxian regxon li mortigis per glavo; cxar HXacor antauxe estis la cxefa el cxiuj tiuj regnoj.

11 Kaj ili mortigis per glavo cxion vivantan, kio estis en gxi; ili ekstermis tiel, ke restis neniu animo; kaj HXacoron li forbruligis per fajro.

12 Kaj cxiujn urbojn de tiuj regxoj kaj cxiujn iliajn regxojn Josuo prenis, kaj mortigis ilin per glavo, ekstermis ilin, kiel ordonis Moseo, servanto de la Eternulo.

13 Sed cxiujn urbojn, kiuj staris sur montetoj, la Izraelidoj ne forbruligis; nur HXacoron solan Josuo forbruligis.

14 Kaj la tutan akireblajxon el tiuj urboj kaj la brutojn la Izraelidoj rabis al si; nur cxiujn homojn ili mortigis per glavo, gxis ili ekstermis ilin, restigante neniun animon.

15 Kiel la Eternulo ordonis al Sia servanto Moseo, tiel Moseo ordonis al Josuo, kaj tiel faris Josuo; li mankigis nenion el cxio, kion la Eternulo ordonis al Moseo.

16 Tiamaniere Josuo prenis tiun tutan landon, la monton kaj la tutan sudan parton kaj la tutan landon Gosxen kaj la malaltajxon kaj la stepon kaj la monton de Izrael kun gxia bazo;

17 de la monto HXalak, kiu levigxas en la direkto al Seir, gxis Baal-Gad en la valo de Lebanon, sub la monto HXermon; kaj cxiujn iliajn regxojn li prenis, kaj batis ilin kaj mortigis ilin.

18 Dum longa tempo Josuo militis kontraux cxiuj tiuj regxoj.

19 Ne ekzistis urbo, kiu faris pacon kun la Izraelidoj, krom la HXividoj, logxantoj en Gibeon; cxiujn ili prenis per milito.

20 CXar de la Eternulo venis la obstinigxo de ilia koro al milito kontraux Izrael, por ekstermi ilin, por ke ne estu indulgo por ili, sed por ekstermi ilin plene, kiel la Eternulo ordonis al Moseo.

21 Kaj en tiu tempo venis Josuo, kaj ekstermis la Anakidojn sur la monto, en HXebron, en Debir, en Anab, kaj sur la tuta monto de Jehuda kaj sur la monto de Izrael; kun iliaj urboj Josuo ekstermis ilin.

22 Ne restis Anakidoj en la lando de la Izraelidoj; nur en Gaza, en Gat, kaj en Asxdod ili restis.

23 Tiamaniere Josuo prenis la tutan landon, konforme al cxio, kion la Eternulo diris al Moseo; kaj Josuo donis gxin kiel heredan posedajxon al Izrael, laux iliaj partoj, laux iliaj triboj. Kaj la lando trankviligxis de milito.

  

Exploring the Meaning of Josuo 11      

Joshua 11: Joshua conquers the entire land.

In this chapter, the Canaanite kings of the north, east and west heard that Israel had conquered all of the southern Canaanite territories. Jabin, king of Hazor, called upon the other Canaanite kingdoms to join forces and attack Israel with a great army.

The Lord reassured Joshua, “Be not afraid because of them: for tomorrow about this time will I deliver them up all slain before Israel” (verse 6). So Joshua counterattacked, and Israel defeated the Canaanites just as the Lord had said.

The rest of the chapter is an account of Joshua’s victories, now here, now there. Israel destroyed each of the Canaanite cities and territories and not one of them was left undefeated (See Swedenborg’s work, The New Jerusalem and Its Heavenly Doctrine 161-164). In all of Canaan, only the Gibeonites were spared because they had made a peace treaty with Israel. The chapter closes with these words: “So Joshua took the whole land according to all that the Lord had said to Moses, and Joshua gave it as an inheritance to Israel according to their divisions by their tribes. Then the land had rest from war” (verse 23).

Now we turn to the spiritual meaning of all this, and its meaning for us. Because of our inherited, human nature, each of us has internal things we have to contend with in our natural life. These Canaanites - the faults we must overcome - are described by the compass points: north, south, east and west. Here are the spiritual meanings of the four cardinal directions (see Swedenborg’s work, Heaven and Hell 141-153):

West = less love

East = greater love

North = less light and wisdom

South = greater light and wisdom

Swedenborg tells us that heaven is organized by this principle. Angels with the clearest perception of love live in the eastern region of heaven, while those with a more hazy understanding live in the west. The same thing applies to the north/south axis; those in a “clear light of wisdom” live in the south, and those in a “dim light of wisdom” live in the north (Heaven and Hell 148). These poles represent angels’ states of love and wisdom, and their use. Just like people on earth, angels experience varying states of love and wisdom - sometimes more, sometimes less - but with angels this leads to them turning again to the Lord to acknowledge that he is their God.

The same pattern exists in hell, but instead of love and wisdom there is self-love (or even hatred) and false thinking from this distorted love. In hell, the degree of intensity in these states is between the rage to dominate and the exhaustion of failing.

In our life on earth, we experience states of both heaven and hell. As we are only partly regenerated, we rapidly switch between these states because of our emotions and the upheavals of life in this world. This chapter about the conflict between Israel and the Canaanites represents our own, personal decisions about what will be the ruling influence in our lives - heaven or hell (See Swedenborg’s work, Arcana Caelestia 5982).

The end of this chapter offers two important statements describing the conflict between heaven and hell. The first one (in verse 20) says the Lord hardened the hearts of Israel’s enemies so that they came to attack, and consequently were destroyed. This tells us that we have to see our evils for what they are in order to turn away from them (See Swedenborg’s unpublished work, Charity 179-180).

The second statement (verses 21-22) says that Joshua completely destroyed the Anakim, except beyond the borders of the land. The Anakim were giants, and they stand for those enormous tensions and rages which evil spirits from hell bring us at times. This (reassuringly) helps us see that we are not like that ourselves, but we could be if we let those evil spirits make a home in our hearts and minds (Arcana Caelestia 2909[3]).
