1 이스라엘 자손들로 인하여 여리고는 굳게 닫혔고 출입하는 자 없더라

2 여호와께서 여호수아에게 이르시되 보라, 내가 여리고와 그 왕과 용사들을 네 손에 붙였으니

3 너희 모든 군사는 성을 둘러 성 주위를 매일 한번씩 돌되 엿새 동안을 그리하라

4 제사장 일곱은 일곱 양각나팔을 잡고 언약궤 앞에서 행할 것이요 제 칠일에는 성을 일곱번 돌며 제사장들은 나팔을 불 것이며

5 제사장들이 양각나팔을 길게 울려 불어서 그 나팔 소리가 너희에게 들릴 때에는 백성은 다 큰 소리로 외쳐 부를 것이라 그리하면 그 성벽이 무너져 내리리니 백성은 각기 앞으로 올라갈지니라 하시매

6 눈의 아들 여호수아가 제사장들을 불러서 그들에게 이르되 너희는 언약궤를 메고 일곱 제사장은 일곱 양각 나팔을 잡고 여호와의 궤 앞에서 행하라 하고

7 또 백성에게 이르되 나아가서 성을 돌되 무장한 자들이 여호와의 궤 앞에 행할지니라

8 여호수아가 백성에게 이르기를 마치매 제사장 일곱이 일곱 양각 나팔을 잡고 여호와 앞에서 진행하며 나팔을 불고 여호와의 언약궤는 그 뒤를 따르며

9 무장한 자들은 나팔 부는 제사장들 앞에서 진행하며 후군은 궤 뒤에 행하고 제사장들은 나팔을 불며 행하더라

10 여호수아가 백성에게 명하여 가로되 `너희는 외치지 말며 너희 음성을 들레지 말며 너희 입에서 아무 말도 내지 말라 그리하다가 내가 너희에게 명하여 외치라 하는 날에 외칠지니라' 하고

11 여호와의 궤로 성을 한번 돌게 하니라 무리가 진에 돌아와서 진에서 자니라

12 여호수아가 아침에 일찌기 일어나니라 제사장들이 여호와의 궤를 메고

13 일곱 제사장은 일곱 양각 나팔을 잡고 여호와의 궤 앞에서 계속 진행하며 나팔을 불고 무장한 자들은 그 앞에 행하며 후군은 여호와의 궤 뒤에 행하고 제사장들은 나팔을 불며 행하니라

14 그 제 이일에도 성을 한번 돌고 진에 돌아오니라 엿새 동안을 이같이 행하니라

15 제 칠일 새벽에 그들이 일찌기 일어나서 여전한 방식으로 성을 일곱번 도니 성을 일곱번 돌기는 그날 뿐이었더라

16 일곱번째에 제사장들이 나팔을 불 때에 여호수아가 백성에게 이르되 `외치라 ! 여호와께서 너희에게 이 성을 주셨느니라 !

17 이 성과 그 가운데 모든 물건은 여호와께 바치니 기생 라합과 무릇 그 집에 동거하는 자는 살리라 ! 이는 그가 우리의 보낸 사자를 숨겼음이니라

18 너희는 바칠 물건을 스스로 삼가라 너희가 그것을 바친 후에 그 바친 어느 것이든지 취하면 이스라엘 진으로 바침이 되어 화를 당케 할까 두려워 하노라

19 은,금과 동철 기구들은 다 여호와께 구별될 것이니 그것을 여호와의 곳간에 들일지니라'

20 이에 백성은 외치고 제사장들은 나팔을 불매 백성이 나팔 소리를 듣는 동시에 크게 소리질러 외치니 성벽이 무너져 내린지라 백성이 각기 앞으로 나아가 성에 들어가서 그 성을 취하고

21 성 중에 있는 것을 다 멸하되 남녀 노유와 우양과 나귀를 칼날로 멸하니라

22 여호수아가 그 땅을 정탐한 두 사람에게 이르되 `그 기생의 집에 들어 가서 너희가 그 여인에게 맹세한 대로 그와 그에게 속한 모든 것을 이끌어내라' 하매

23 정탐한 소년들이 들어가서 라합과 그 부모와 그 형제와 그에게 속한 모든 것을 이끌어 내고 또 그 친족도 다 이끌어 내어 그들을 이스라엘 진 밖에 두고

24 무리가 불로 성읍과 그 가운데 있는 모든 것을 사르고 은,금과 동철 기구는 여호와의 집 곳간에 두었더라

25 여호수아가 기생 라합과 그 아비의 가족과 그에게 속한 모든 것을 살렸으므로 그가 오늘날까지 이스라엘 중에 거하였으니 이는 여호수아가 여리고를 탐지하려고 보낸 사자를 숨겼음이었더라

26 여호수아가 그 때에 맹세로 무리를 경계하여 가로되 `이 여리고 성을 누구든지 일어나서 건축하는 자는 여호와 앞에서 저주를 받을 것이라 그 기초를 쌓을 때에 장자를 잃을 것이요 문을 세울 때에 계자를 잃으리라' 하였더라

27 여호와께서 여호수아와 함께 하시니 여호수아의 명성이 그 온 땅에 퍼지니라

Exploring the Meaning of Joshua 6      

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

Joshua 6: The Fall of Jericho

Here, the first conflict for Israel in Canaan presents itself: the taking of the city of Jericho, which stands directly and obstinately in the path of the Israelites, preventing them from moving forward. This conflict embodies the whole essence and scope of all the rest of the conquests in the Joshua story, which in the inner meaning is to overcome and rule the things in our lives which oppose what God wants for us.

Jericho is to be taken with a siege, and God gives Joshua a procedure to follow: You shall march round the city once a day for six days in absolute silence. Seven priests shall carry seven rams’ horns before the ark. On the seventh day you shall march round the city seven times, and then the priests shall blow their trumpets. All the people are to shout with a huge shout, and then the walls of the city will fall down flat. And all the people are to go up and take the city.

This is quite unlike any other siege, where walls have to be scaled and fire catapulted in to burn things, but... this is a spiritual siege. The siege of Jericho represents how we are to lay siege to, or deal effectively with, our own evils and tendencies. It is the description blueprint for the battle between good and evil, which is our battle too. (See Doctrine of Faith 50).

In the Bible, Jericho is sometimes called the ‘city of palm trees’, giving a lovely idea of it. Its name means “a place of fragrance”, or, “his (the Lord’s) sweet breath”. It sounds perfect, but this has been usurped by invaders and takers who are now in complete possession of this sweet city and who will hold on for all they're worth (Apocalypse Explained 502[11]). This is really an account of the influence of hell in human life, and especially our unregenerate lives, when we are open to whatever feels self-gratifying.

Jericho, we hear, is shut up tight. It is not going to be an easy matter – because the work of regeneration never is – but this also describes hell’s fear; it is shut up tight because of the Israelites (Heaven and Hell 543). In us, when we become aware of a better way to live and we want to follow the Lord - whose yoke is easy and whose burden is light - hell will soon hit back in some devious imperceptible way to hold on to what it has got. It is scared of losing us.

This takes us to the siege and its tactics. The march once a day around the city for six days, carrying the ark, is to see every part of our situation from every angle, and it is also to parade our worship and adoration of the Lord (by parading the ark). The time period, six days, is always to do with the work involved in our regeneration as we see evil and shun it, pray to God, stand back and determine. (Arcana Caelestia 10373)

The seventh day involves seven marches round the city, then the trumpets and the shouts. This is the culmination, the Sabbath. For us, it is the avowal that we know the Lord is now ruling our will and our life and there will be no turning back or weakness of giving in. Jericho is now taken! The command is that every living thing in the city is to be completely destroyed because we must be unrelenting against all the things in our lives that go against God.

The gold, the silver, and the vessels of brass and iron, were put into the treasury of the house of Jehovah. The "gold and silver" represent the knowledges of spiritual truth and good, and "the vessels of brass and iron" represent knowledges of natural truth and good. In the profane hands of the idolaters of Jericho, those knowledges could be tools to serve dire falsities and evils. In the house of Jehovah, they could be serviceable knowledges, applied to good ends - hence their being salvaged. (See Heaven and Hell 487)

The prostitute Rahab (who had hidden Israel’s spies and confessed the Lord’s power) and all her family are brought out and given safekeeping. For us, this is the acknowledgement of the truth that we are sinful (as she was) and that if it were not for the Lord we would plunge into who knows what. But now we know and confess the power and truth of God. And then, the Israelites burn the city with fire and Joshua pronounces a curse on anyone who ever rebuilds this city. We are to abhor evil for what it is and be faithful to the Lord our God.

The story of the destruction of Jericho is then the pattern for all our resistance and resolve in seeing and overcoming evil, while confessing, as we do this, that the battle is the Lord’s. (Charity 166)
