Josua 18

1 Und es versammelte sich die ganze Gemeinde der Kinder Israel gen Silo und richteten daselbst auf die Hütte des Stifts, und das Land war ihnen unterworfen.

2 Und es waren noch sieben Stämme der Kinder Israel, denen sie ihr Erbteil nicht ausgeteilt hatten.

3 Und Josua sprach zu den Kinder Israel: Wie lange seid ihr so laß, daß ihr nicht hingeht, das Land einzunehmen, das euch der HERR, euer Väter Gott, gegeben hat?

4 Schafft euch aus jeglichem Stamm drei Männer, daß ich sie sende und sie sich aufmachen und durchs Land gehen und es aufschreiben nach ihren Erbteilen und zu mir kommen.

5 Teilt das Land in sieben Teile. Juda soll bleiben auf seiner Grenze von Mittag her, und das Haus Josephs soll bleiben auf seiner Grenze von Mitternacht her.

6 Ihr aber schreibt die sieben Teile der Lande auf und bringt sie zu mir hierher, so will ich euch das Los werfen hier vor dem HERRN, unserm Gott.

7 Denn die Leviten haben kein Teil unter euch, sondern das Priestertum des HERRN ist ihr Erbteil. Gad aber und Ruben und der halbe Stamm Manasse haben ihr Teil genommen jenseit des Jordans, gegen Morgen, das ihnen Mose, der Knecht Gottes, gegeben hat.

8 Da machten sich die Männer auf, daß sie hingingen; und Josua gebot ihnen, da sie hin wollten gehen, das Land aufzuschreiben, und sprach: Gehet hin und durchwandelt das Land und schreibt es auf und kommt wieder zu mir, daß ich euch hier das Los werfe vor dem HERRN zu Silo.

9 Also gingen die Männer hin und durchzogen das Land und schrieben es auf in einen Brief nach den Städten in sieben Teile und kamen zu Josua ins Lager gen Silo.

10 Da warf Josua das Los über sie zu Silo vor dem HERRN und teilte daselbst das Land aus unter die Kinder Israel, einem jeglichen sein Teil.

11 Und das Los des Stammes der Kinder Benjamin fiel nach ihren Geschlechtern, und die Grenze ihres Loses ging aus zwischen den Kindern Juda und den Kindern Joseph.

12 Und ihre Grenze war an der Seite gegen Mitternacht vom Jordan an und geht herauf an der Mitternachtseite Jerichos und kommt aufs Gebirge abendwärts und geht aus nach der Wüste Beth-Aven

13 und geht von da gen Lus, an der Seite her an Lus mittagwärts, das ist Beth-El, und kommt hinab gen Ataroth-Adar an den Berg, der gegen Mittag liegt von dem niederen Beth-Horon.

14 Darnach neigt sie sich und lenkt sich um zur Seite des Abends gegen Mittag von dem Berge an, der vor Beth-Horon mittagswärts liegt, und endet an Kirjath-Baal, das ist Kirjath-Jearim, die Stadt der Kinder Juda. Das ist die Seite gegen Abend.

15 Aber die Seite gegen Mittag ist von Kirjath-Jearim an und geht aus gegen Abend und kommt hinaus zum Wasserbrunnen Nephthoa

16 und geht herab an des Berges Ende, der vor dem Tal des Sohnes Hinnoms liegt, am Grunde Rephaim gegen Mitternacht, und geht durchs Tal Hinnom an der Mittagseite des Jebusiters und kommt hinab zum Brunnen Rogel

17 und zieht sich mitternachtwärts und kommt hinaus gen En-Semes und kommt hinaus gen Geliloth, das gegenüber der Steige Adummim liegt, und kommt herab zum Stein Bohans, des Sohnes Rubens,

18 und geht zur Seite hin neben dem Gefilde, das gegen Mitternacht liegt, und kommt hinab aufs Gefilde

19 und geht an der Seite Beth-Hoglas, das gegen Mitternacht liegt, und ihr Ende ist an der Zunge des Salzmeers gegen Mitternacht, an dem Ende des Jordans gegen Mittag. Das ist die Mittagsgrenze.

20 Aber die Seite gegen Morgen soll der Jordan enden. Das ist das Erbteil der Kinder Benjamin in ihren Grenzen umher nach ihren Geschlechtern.

21 Die Städte aber des Stammes der Kinder Benjamin nach ihren Geschlechtern sind diese: Jericho, Beth-Hogla, Emek-Keziz,

22 Beth-Araba, Zemaraim, Beth-El,

23 Avvim, Happara, Ophra,

24 Kaphar-Ammonai, Ophni, Geba. Das sind zwölf Städte und ihre Dörfer.

25 Gibeon Rama, Beeroth,

26 Mizpe, Kaphira, Moza,

27 Rekem, Jerpeel, Thareala,

28 Zela, Eleph und die Jebusiter, das ist Jerusalem, Gibeath, Kirjath. Vierzehn Städte und ihre Dörfer. Das ist das Erbteil der Kinder Benjamin nach ihren Geschlechtern.

  

Exploring the Meaning of Josua 18      

Napsal(a) Rev. Julian Duckworth

Joshua 18: The rest of the land is divided up among the 7 remaining tribes, and the tribe of Benjamin receives its lot.

After several chapters covering the allocation of the land for Reuben, Gad, Judah, Ephraim and Manasseh, there were still seven tribes to be provided for. Before this was done, Joshua gathered these seven tribes together and told them to choose three men from each tribe. These men went and surveyed the region, divided up all the land and cities into seven parts, and recorded everything in a book. Then they came back to Joshua, who cast lots to decide where the seven remaining tribes would live.

The first of the seven allocations was for the tribe of Benjamin. Benjamin was the youngest of the sons of Jacob, and he was a full brother to Joseph. Their mother, Rachel, whom Jacob had loved so much, died giving birth to Benjamin.

The city of Jerusalem was first allocated to Benjamin, but in time became more associated with Judah. In fact, these were the two tribes which later made up the kingdom of Judah, as opposed to the ten northern tribes forming the kingdom of Israel. Benjamin’s territory included the cities of Jericho, Ai and Gibeon, all of which had been significant soon after Israel crossed the River Jordan. Saul, the first king of Israel, was a Benjamite.

This story about surveying the land represents our need to know things as they truly are. This could mean many things: for example, exploring the idea of heaven, or hell, or life in this world, or a spiritual teaching such as providence. It might be to learn about justice and compassion, or true freedom. It may be our need to look honestly within ourselves and recognize some of our self-centred ways (see Swedenborg’s work, Arcana Caelestia 1612).

The Israelite’s findings about the land were recorded in a book, which really would have been a scroll. This is like our ‘book of life’, in which everything about us down to the least detail is preserved so that in eternity, we shall know who we are (see Swedenborg’s Apocalypse Explained 199). Joshua drew lots so the Lord’s will would be clear to the people of Israel.

The spiritual meaning of Benjamin needs some careful explanation. Technically, it means ’the spiritual of the celestial’, and this is our ability to understand the reason for the most loving experiences we can have. It is heightened thinking joining with heightened feeling. Benjamin was the youngest son, the special brother of Joseph, who stands for the Lord (Arcana Caelestia 4585).

With this in mind, it is useful to know that Bethlehem, the town where Jesus was born, lay in the territory of Benjamin. Bethlehem’s name means ‘house of bread’ giving us the idea of nourishment for our physical and our spiritual lives. God came into the world to bring us the food of heaven and nourishment from the Word, so that we may fight our evils and choose what is good (Arcana Caelestia 6247, 4594).
