1 Aber die Kinder Israel vergriffen sich an dem Verbanneten; denn Achan, der Sohn Charmis, des Sohns Sabdis, des Sohns Serahs, vom Stamm Juda nahm des Verbanneten etwas. Da ergrimmete der Zorn des HERRN über die Kinder Israel.

2 Da nun Josua Männer aussandte von Jericho gen Ai, die bei Beth-Aven liegt, gegen dem Morgen vor Bethel, und sprach zu ihnen: Gehet hinauf und verkundschaftet das Land; und da sie hinaufgegangen waren und Ai verkundschaftet hatten,

3 kamen sie wieder zu Josua und sprachen zu ihm: Laß nicht das ganze Volk hinaufziehen, sondern bei zwei oder dreitausend Mann, daß sie hinaufziehen und schlagen Ai, daß nicht das ganze Volk sich daselbst bemühe, denn ihrer ist wenig.

4 Also zogen hinauf des Volks bei dreitausend Mann, und die flohen vor den Männern zu Ai.

5 Und die von Ai schlugen ihrer bei sechsunddreißig Mann und jagten sie vor dem Tor bis gen Sabarim und schlugen sie den Weg herab. Da ward dem Volk das Herz verzagt und ward zu Wasser.

6 Josua aber zerriß seine Kleider und fiel auf sein Angesicht zur Erde vor der Lade des HERRN bis auf den Abend, samt den Ältesten Israels, und warfen Staub auf ihre Häupter.

7 Und Josua sprach: Ach, HERR, HERR, warum hast du dies Volk über den Jordan geführet, daß du uns in die Hände der Amoriter gäbest, uns umzubringen? O daß wir wären jenseit des Jordans geblieben, wie wir angefangen hatten!

8 Ach, mein HERR, was soll ich sagen, weil Israel seinen Feinden den Rücken kehret?

9 Wenn das die Kanaaniter und alle Einwohner des Landes hören so werden sie uns umgeben und auch unsern Namen ausrotten von der Erde. Was willst du denn bei deinem großen Namen tun?

10 Da sprach der HERR zu Josua: Stehe auf! Warum liegst du also auf deinem Angesicht?

11 Israel hat sich versündiget, und haben meinen Bund übergangen, den ich ihnen geboten habe; dazu haben sie des Verbanneten genommen und gestohlen und verleugnet und unter ihre Geräte geleget.

12 Die Kinder Israel mögen nicht stehen vor ihren Feinden, sondern müssen ihren Feinden den Rücken kehren; denn sie sind im Bann, Ich werde fort nicht mit euch sein, wo ihr nicht den Bann aus euch vertilget.

13 Stehe auf und heilige das Volk und sprich: Heiliget euch auf morgen! Denn also sagt der HERR, der Gott Israels: Es ist ein Bann unter dir, Israel; darum kannst du nicht stehen vor deinen Feinden, bis daß ihr den Bann von euch tut.

14 Und sollt euch früh herzumachen, ein Stamm nach dem andern; und welchen Stamm der HERR treffen wird, der soll sich herzumachen, ein Geschlecht nach dem andern; und welches Geschlecht der HERR treffen wird, das soll sich herzumachen, ein Haus nach dem andern; und welch Haus der HERR treffen wird, das soll sich herzumachen, ein Hauswirt nach dem andern.

15 Und welcher erfunden wird im Bann, den soll man mit Feuer verbrennen mit allem, das er hat, darum daß er den Bund des HERRN überfahren und eine Torheit in Israel begangen hat.

16 Da machte sich Josua des Morgens frühe auf und brachte Israel herzu, einen Stamm nach dem andern; und ward getroffen der Stamm Juda.

17 Und da er die Geschlechter in Juda herzubrachte, ward getroffen das Geschlecht der Serahiter. Und da er das Geschlecht der Serahiter herzubrachte, einen Hauswirt nach dem andern, ward Sabdi getroffen.

18 Und da er sein Haus herzubrachte, einen Wirt nach dem andern, ward getroffen Achan, der Sohn Charmis, des Sohns Sabdis, des Sohns Serahs, aus dem Stamm Juda.

19 Und Josua sprach zu Achan: Mein Sohn, gib dem HERRN, dem Gott Israels, die Ehre und gib ihm das Lob; und sage mir an, was hast du getan? und leugne mir nichts!

20 Da antwortete Achan Josua und sprach: Wahrlich, ich habe mich versündiget an dem HERRN, dem Gott Israels; also und also habe ich getan.

21 Ich sah unter dem Rauhe einen köstlichen babylonischen Mantel und zweihundert Sekel Silbers und eine güldene Zunge, fünfzig Sekel wert am Gewichte; des gelüstete mich und nahm es. Und siehe, es ist verscharret in die Erde in meiner Hütte, und das Silber drunter.

22 Da sandte Josua Boten hin, die liefen zur Hütte; und siehe, es war verscharret in seiner Hütte, und das Silber drunter.

23 Und sie nahmen's aus der Hütte und brachten's zu Josua und zu allen Kindern Israel und schütteten's vor den HERRN.

24 Da nahm Josua und das ganze Israel mit ihm Achan, den Sohn Serahs, samt dem Silber, Mantel und güldenen Zunge, seine Söhne und Töchter, seine Ochsen und Esel und Schafe, seine Hütte und alles, was er hatte, und führeten sie hinauf ins Tal Achor.

25 Und Josua sprach: Weil du uns betrübet hast, so betrübe dich der HERR an diesem Tage! Und das ganze Israel steinigten ihn und verbrannten sie mit Feuer. Und da sie sie gesteiniget hatten,

26 machten sie über sie einen großen Steinhaufen, der bleibet bis auf diesen Tag. Also kehrete sich der HERR von dem Grimm seines Zorns. Daher heißt derselbe Ort das Tal Achor bis auf diesen Tag.

  

Exploring the Meaning of Josua 7      

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

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)
