1 И выпал жребий колену Манассии, так как он был первенец Иосифа. Махиру, первенцуМанассии, отцу Галаада, который был храбр на войне, достался Галаад и Васан.

2 Достались уделы и прочим сынам Манассии, по племенам их, и сынам Авиезера, исынам Хелека, и сынам Асриила, и сынам Шехема, и сынам Хефера, и сынам Шемиды. Вот дети Манассии, сына Иосифова, мужеского пола, по племенам их.

3 У Салпаада же, сына Хеферова, сына Галаадова, сына Махирова, сына Манассиина, не было сыновей, а только дочери. Вот имена дочерей его: Махла, Ноа, Хогла, Милка и Фирца.

4 Они пришли к священнику Елеазару и к Иисусу, сыну Навину, и к начальникам, и сказали: Господь повелел Моисею дать нам удел между братьями нашими. И дан им удел, по повелению Господню, между братьями отца их.

5 И выпало Манассии десять участков, кроме земли Галаадской и Васанской, которая за Иорданом;

6 ибо дочери Манассии получили удел среди сыновей его, а земляГалаадская досталась прочим сыновьям Манассии.

7 Предел Манассии идет от Асира к Михмефафу, который против Сихема; отсюда Предел идет направо к жителям Ен-Таппуаха.

8 Земля Таппуах досталась Манассии, а город Таппуах у предела Манассиина – сынам Ефремовым.

9 Отсюда предел нисходит к потоку Кане, с южной стороны потока. Города сии принадлежат Ефрему, хотя находятся среди городов Манассии. предел Манассии – на северной стороне потока и оканчивается морем.

10 Что к югу, то Ефремово, а что к северу, то Манассиино; море же было пределом их; к Асиру примыкали они с северной стороны и к Иссахару с восточной.

11 У Иссахара и Асира принадлежат Манассии Беф-Сан и зависящие от него места, Ивлеам и зависящие от него места, жители Дора и зависящие от него места, жители Ен-Дора и зависящие от него места, жители Фаанаха и зависящие от него места, жители Мегиддона изависящие от него места, и третья часть Нафефа.

12 Сыны Манассиины не могли выгнать жителей городов сих, и Хананеи остались жить в земле сей.

13 Когда же сыны Израилевы пришли в силу, тогда Хананеев сделали они данниками, но изгнать не изгнали их.

14 Сыны Иосифа говорили Иисусу и сказали: почему ты дал мне в удел один жребий и один участок, тогда как я многолюден, потому чтотак благословил меня Господь?

15 Иисус сказал им: если ты многолюден, то пойди в леса и там, в землеФерезеев и Рефаимов, расчисти себе место , если гора Ефремова для тебя тесна.

16 Сыны Иосифа сказали: не останется за нами гора, потому что железные колесницы у всех Хананеев, живущих на долине, как у тех, которые в Беф-Сане и в зависящих от него местах, так и у тех, которые на долине Изреельской.

17 Но Иисус сказал дому Иосифову, Ефрему и Манассии: ты многолюден и сила у тебя велика; не один жребий будет у тебя:

18 и гора будет твоею, и лес сей; ты расчистишь его, и он будет твой до самого конца его; ибо ты изгонишь Хананеев, хотя у них колесницы железные, и хотя они сильны.


Exploring the Meaning of ИисусНавин 17      

Napsal(a) Rev. Julian Duckworth

Joshua 17: The tribe of Manasseh receives the western half of its territory.

The previous chapter (Joshua 16) dealt with the territory given to Ephraim, Manasseh’s younger brother; this one covers the western half of Manasseh (the other half tribe of Manasseh was bound to live across the Jordan).

Interestingly, this chapter mentions many people by name, instead of only describing locations as we’ve seen before. Verses 1 and 2 list all seven of Manasseh’s sons and their families. Then verse 3 mentions Zelophehad, the great-grandson of Manasseh, who had had five daughters, but no sons. When Zelophehad died on the journey through the wilderness, his daughters came to Joshua to claim the inheritance Moses had promised them (see Numbers 27). So, both the sons and daughters of Manasseh’s family received land.

After the area given to Manasseh was outlined, the people of Ephraim and Manasseh came to Joshua and complained that they deserved more land, because of their important standing among the tribes of Israel (verse 14). They claimed that they had been specially blessed, and should receive much more.

Joshua told them that if they were such a great people, they should go to the forest country and seize land from the Perrizites and the giants living there. The people were not pleased, and told Joshua that the Canaanites who still roamed there were strong, and had chariots of iron. Even so, Joshua told them again to cut down the wood and use it, because they would eventually be able to drive out the Canaanites.

The spiritual meaning of this story is all about the relationship between good and truth. Again, there are many names to indicate the geography of the area of “West Manasseh”, and the meaning of these names very often links in with the spiritual meaning of the tribe. Beyond that, the specific area in Canaan given to a tribe is spiritually important. Ephraim and Manasseh are right in the middle of the land because they stand for truth and good, for truth leading to good, for good coming from truth.

The story about Zelophehad’s five daughters also relates to the place of truth and good. This is because sons stand for truths, often for truths which fight for us during our temptations, while daughters stand for the good in our spiritual life which bears ‘children’ (see Swedenborg’s work, Arcana Caelestia 8993 [3,4]).

Verses 5 and 6 describe this union of good and truth very beautifully: “Ten portions were given to Manasseh because the daughters of Manasseh received an inheritance among his sons; and the rest of Manasseh’s sons had the land of Gilead.” It is worth noting here that the spiritual meaning of the number ‘ten’ has to do with wholeness, and also ‘remains,’ or memories, which the Lord imparts to us when we are very young (Arcana Caelestia 4638).

When the people of Ephraim and Manasseh complained to Joshua, it is much like us wanting our spiritual life to be easy. We want it to be something given to us, and not something which we will need to work on and even fight for in ourselves.

Finally, the meaning of using wooden chariots to fight the Canaanites means to fight from our love of what is good. This is because wood corresponds to good, since it is alive and has grown. ‘Iron’ here stands for the harshness of truth without any good, which appears invincible, but in reality is weaker than the power of goodness and love (Arcana Caelestia 426[3]).
