1 Και ως ηκουσεν Ιαβειν ο βασιλευς της Ασωρ, απεστειλε προς τον Ιωβαβ βασιλεα της Μαδων και προς τον βασιλεα της Σιμβρων και προς τον βασιλεα της Αχσαφ,

2 και προς τους βασιλεις τους προς βορραν, εις την ορεινην και εις την πεδινην, κατεναντι της Χιννερωθ, και εις την κοιλαδα και εις Ναφαθ-δωρ προς δυσμας,

3 και προς τους Χαναναιους τους προς ανατολας και δυσμας, και προς τους Αμορραιους και τους Χετταιους και τους Φερεζαιους και τους Ιεβουσαιους τους εν τη ορεινη, και προς τους Ευαιους τους υπο την Αερμων εν τη γη Μισπα.

4 Και εξηλθον, αυτοι και παντα τα στρατευματα αυτων μετ' αυτων, λαος πολυς ως η αμμος η παρα το χειλος της θαλασσης κατα το πληθος, μεθ' ιππων και αμαξων πολλων σφοδρα.

5 Και συναχθεντες παντες ουτοι οι βασιλεις, ηλθον και εστρατοπεδευσαν ομου πλησιον των υδατων Μερωμ, δια να πολεμησωσι τον Ισραηλ.

6 Και ειπε Κυριος προς τον Ιησουν, Μη φοβηθης απο προσωπου αυτων· διοτι αυριον, περι την ωραν ταυτην, εγω θελω παραδωσει αυτους παντας πεφονευμενους εμπροσθεν του Ισραηλ· τους ιππους αυτων θελεις νευροκοπησει και τας αμαξας αυτων θελεις κατακαυσει εν πυρι.

7 Και υπηγεν εξαιφνης ο Ιησους, και πας ο πολεμιστης λαος μετ' αυτου, εναντιον αυτων εις τα υδατα Μερωμ, και επεπεσον επ' αυτους.

8 Και παρεδωκεν αυτους ο Κυριος εις την χειρα του Ισραηλ, και επαταξεν αυτους και κατεδιωξεν αυτους εως της μεγαλης Σιδωνος· και εως Μισρεφωθ-μαιμ και εως της κοιλαδος Μισπα προς ανατολας· και επαταξαν αυτους, εωσου δεν αφηκαν εις αυτους υπολοιπον.

9 Και εκαμεν ο Ιησους εις αυτους καθως προσεταξεν εις αυτον ο Κυριος· τους ιππους αυτων ενευροκοπησε και τας αμαξας αυτων κατεκαυσεν εν πυρι.

10 Και εστρεψεν ο Ιησους κατα τον αυτον καιρον και εκυριευσε την Ασωρ και επαταξε τον βασιλεα αυτης εν μαχαιρα· διοτι η Ασωρ ητο προτερον η πρωτευουσα πασων των βασιλειων τουτων.

11 Και πασας τας ψυχας τας εν αυτη επαταξαν εν στοματι μαχαιρας και εξωλοθρευσαν αυτους· δεν εμεινεν ουδεν εχον πνοην· και την Ασωρ κατεκαυσεν εν πυρι.

12 Και πασας τας πολεις των βασιλεων εκεινων και παντας τους βασιλεις αυτων συνελαβεν ο Ιησους και επαταξεν αυτους εν στοματι μαχαιρας· εξωλοθρευσεν αυτους, καθως προσεταξε Μωυσης ο δουλος του Κυριου.

13 Πασας δε τας πολεις, οσαι εμενον μετα των προχωματων αυτων, δεν εκαυσεν αυτας ο Ισραηλ, εκτος μονην την Ασωρ κατεκαυσεν ο Ιησους.

14 Και παντα τα λαφυρα των πολεων τουτων και τα κτηνη ελαφυραγωγησαν εις εαυτους οι υιοι Ισραηλ· τους δε ανθρωπους παντας επαταξαν εν στοματι μαχαιρας, εωσου εξωλοθρευσαν αυτους· δεν αφηκαν ουδεν εχον πνοην.

15 Καθως προσεταξεν ο Κυριος εις τον Μωυσην τον δουλον αυτου, ουτω προσεταξεν ο Μωυσης τον Ιησουν, και ουτως εκαμεν ο Ιησους· δεν παρεβη ουδεν εκ παντων οσα προσεταξεν ο Κυριος εις τον Μωυσην.

16 Και εκυριευσεν ο Ιησους πασαν εκεινην την γην, την ορεινην, και πασαν την μεσημβρινην, και πασαν την γην Γεσεν, και την κοιλαδα και την πεδινην, και το ορος του Ισραηλ και την κοιλαδα αυτου,

17 απο του ορους Αλακ, του αναβαινοντος προς την Σηειρ, εως Βααλ-γαδ εις την κοιλαδα του Λιβανου, υπο το ορος Αερμων· και συνελαβε παντας τους βασιλεις αυτων και επαταξεν αυτους και εθανατωσεν αυτους.

18 Πολυν καιρον επολεμει ο Ιησους προς παντας τουτους τους βασιλεις.

19 Δεν ητο πολις ητις εκαμεν ειρηνην μετα των υιων Ισραηλ, εκτος των Ευαιων των κατοικουντων εν Γαβαων· πασας εκυριευσαν εν πολεμω·

20 διοτι παρα Κυριου εγεινε το να σκληρυνθωσιν αι καρδιαι αυτων, να ελθωσιν εις μαχην κατα του Ισραηλ, δια να εξολοθρευθωσι, να μη γεινη εις αυτους ελεος, αλλα να εξαφανισθωσι, καθως ο Κυριος προσεταξεν εις τον Μωυσην.

21 Και ηλθεν ο Ιησους κατ' εκεινον τον καιρον, και ηφανισε τους Ανακειμ απο των ορεων, απο Χεβρων, απο Δεβειρ, απο Αναβ και απο παντων των ορεων του Ιουδα και απο παντων των ορεων του Ισραηλ· εξωλοθρευσεν αυτους ο Ιησους μετα των πολεων αυτων.

22 Δεν εμεινον Ανακειμ εν τη γη των υιων Ισραηλ· μονον εν τη Γαζη, εν τη Γαθ και εν τη Αζωτω εμεινον.

23 Και εκυριευσεν ο Ιησους πασαν την γην κατα παντα οσα ειπεν ο Κυριος προς τον Μωυσην· και εδωκεν αυτην ο Ιησους εις τον Ισραηλ κληρονομιαν, κατα τον διαμερισμον αυτων εις τας φυλας αυτων. Και η γη ησυχασεν απο του πολεμου.

  

Exploring the Meaning of Ιησούς του ναυή 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]).
