1 Ce fut ici le sort de la Tribu des enfants de Juda selon leurs familles. Aux confins d'Edom, le désert de Tsin vers le Midi, fut le dernier bout [de leurs pays] vers le Midi.

2 Tellement que leur frontière du côté du Midi fut le dernier bout de la mer salée, depuis le bras qui regarde vers le Midi.

3 Et elle devait sortir vers le Midi de la montée de Hakrabbim, et passer à Tsin; et, montant du Midi de Kadès-barné passer à Hetsron; puis montant vers Addar se tourner vers Karkah;

4 Puis passant vers Hatsmon, sortir au torrent d'Egypte ; tellement que les extrémités, de cette frontière devaient se rendre à la mer. Ce sera là, [dit Josué], votre frontière du côté du Midi.

5 Et la frontière vers l'Orient sera la mer salée jusqu'au bout du Jourdain; et la frontière du côté du Septentrion sera depuis le bras de la mer, qui est au bout du Jourdain.

6 Et cette frontière montera jusqu'à Bethhogla, et passera du côté du Septentrion de Bethharaba ; et cette frontière montera jusqu'à la pierre de Bohan, fils de Ruben.

7 Puis cette frontière montera vers Débir, depuis la vallée de Hacor, même vers le Septentrion, regardant Guilgal; laquelle est vis-à-vis de la montée d Adummim, qui est au Midi du torrent; puis cette frontière passera vers les eaux de Hen-semès, et ses extrémités se rendront à Hen-roguel.

8 Puis cette frontière montera par la vallée du fils de Hinnom, jusqu'au côté de Jébusi vers le Midi, qui est Jérusalem; puis cette frontière montera jusqu'au sommet de la montagne, qui est vis-à-vis de la vallée de Hinnom, vers l'Occident, [et] qui est au bout de la vallée des Réphaïms, vers le Septentrion.

9 Et cette frontière s'alignera depuis le sommet de la montagne jusqu'à la fontaine des eaux de Nephtoah, et sortira vers les villes de la montagne de Héphron; puis cette frontière s'alignera à Bahala, qui est Kirjath-jéharim.

10 Et cette frontière se tournera depuis Bahala vers l'Occident, jusqu'à la montagne de Séhir; puis elle passera jusqu'au côté de la montagne de Jeharim vers le Septentrion, qui [est] Késalon; puis descendant à Beth-semes, elle passera à Timna.

11 Et cette frontière sortira jusqu'au côté de Hekron, vers le Septentrion, et cette frontière s'alignera vers Sikkeron; puis ayant passé la montagne de Bahala, elle sortira à Jabnéël; tellement que les extrémités de cette frontière se rendront à la mer.

12 Or la frontière du côté de l'Occident sera ce qui est vers la grande mer, et ses limites. Ce furent les frontières des enfants de Juda de tous les côtés, selon leurs familles.

13 Au reste on avait donné à Caleb, fils de Jéphunné, une portion au milieu des enfants de Juda, suivant le commandement de l'Eternel fait à Josué, [savoir] Kirjath-Arbah, [or Arbah était] père de Hanak; [et Kirjath-Arbah] c'est Hébron.

14 Et Caleb déposséda de là les trois fils de Hanak, [savoir] Sesaï, Ahiman, et Talmaï, enfants de Hanak.

15 Et de là il monta vers les habitants de Débir, dont le nom était auparavant Kirjath-sépher.

16 Et Caleb dit : Je donnerai ma fille Hacsa pour femme à celui qui battra Kirjath-sépher, et la prendra.

17 Et Hothniel fils de Kénaz, frère de Caleb, la prit; et [Caleb] lui donna sa fille Hacsa pour femme.

18 Et il arriva que comme elle s'en allait, elle l'incita à demander à son père un champ; puis elle descendit impétueusement de dessus son âne, et Caleb lui dit : Qu'as-tu?

19 Et elle répondit : Donne-moi un présent ; puisque tu m'as donné une terre sèche, Donne-moi aussi des sources d'eau. Et il lui donna les fontaines de dessus et les fontaines de dessous.

20 C'est ici l'héritage de la Tribu des enfants de Juda selon leurs familles.

Exploring the Meaning of Josué 15      

Napsal(a) Rev. Julian Duckworth

Joshua 15: Judah’s territory and more about Caleb.

This chapter describes the territory given to the tribe of Judah, and lists many of its cities and borders. Judah received a major portion of the land of Canaan; its eastern border was the Salt Sea (the Dead Sea), and the western border was the Great Sea (the Mediterranean).

Although Judah was the fourth son of Jacob, he played a more significant role in many of the Old Testament stories than his older brothers did. So, it is not surprising that the tribe of Judah received extensive territory in the south of Canaan, which in later time became the nation of Judah, along with the tribe of Benjamin’s small territory. The name ‘Judah’ also eventually led to the name ‘Jewish’, coming from the Roman province of Judaea. The name ‘Judah’ also means “praise”, specifically praise of God (see Swedenborg’s work, Arcana Caelestia 456).

Praise itself is a commendation of a person’s good qualities. To give praise is part of our love for our neighbour; to receive praise underscores our sense of our own value. To praise the Lord is to give thanks to Him, and to affirm the difference that the Lord makes in our life. Ultimately, praise is part of our faith in the Lord to lead us through this life and for eternity.

This uplifting, positive spiritual meaning of Judah does not mean that Judah (the man in the Old Testament) was without faults. He had his flaws, as everyone does, but at times Judah changed the course of events for a better outcome. It was Judah who persuaded his brothers to sell Joseph rather than kill him, and he also offered himself as a hostage for the sake of his brothers (Arcana Caelestia 4815[2]).

Chapter 15 lists very many locations in Judah’s territory. Here are just a few of the places listed, along with their meaning and spiritual significance:

Judah = “praise”
Spiritually = our worship of God

Which includes these, and many more aspects…

Zin = “flat, level ground”
Spiritually = life under God’s guidance

Kadesh Barnea = “holy wanderings”
Spiritually = becoming purified

Beth Hoglah = “house of the partridge”
Spiritually = bringing to birth

En Rogel = “water spring of the foot”
Spiritually = life in everyday activities

Jerusalem = “dwelling place of peace; wholeness”
Spiritually = our highest spiritual state

Nephtoah = “to be open”
Spiritually = to be part of all life

Timnah = “allotted portion”
Spiritually = what the Lord has created me for

Mount Hebron, which was in the territory of Judah, was given to Caleb as an inheritance because of his faithfulness to God. We read in this chapter that he conquers the giants living there, and drives them away from Mount Hebron. Caleb makes a promise that whoever takes the nearby city of Kirjath-sepher will have his daughter, Achsah, for a wife. Caleb’s brother’s son, Othniel, captures the city and marries Achsah. Caleb blesses Achsah and gives her springs of water upon her request, and he also gives Othniel a field.

The spiritual meaning of this touching story is that our spiritual life is intended to come together to be like a family (Arcana Caelestia 3020), just as Caleb, Achsah and Othniel are all close members of a family. Spiritual life is about bringing together our beliefs, our loves and affections, our intentions, and our actions. These different aspects of spiritual life become like one family where everyone – or everything – is interwoven together.
