1 Potom sabra Isus sva plemena Izrailjeva u Sihem, i sazva starešine Izrailjeve i poglavare njegove i sudije njegove i upravitelje njegove, i staše pred Bogom.

2 I reče Isus svom narodu: Ovako veli Gospod Bog Izrailjev: S one strane reke živeše nekada oci vaši, Tara otac Avramov i otac Nahorov, i služiše drugim bogovima.

3 Ali uzeh oca vašeg Avrama ispreko reke i provedoh ga kroz svu zemlju hanansku i umnožih seme njegovo davši mu Isaka.

4 A Isaku dadoh Jakova i Isava, i dadoh Isavu goru Sir da je njegova; a Jakov i sinovi njegovi siđoše u Misir.

5 I poslah Mojsija i Arona, i mučih Misir, kako učinih usred njega, potom vas izvedoh.

6 A kad izvedoh iz Misira oce vaše, dođoše na more, a Misirci goniše oce vaše s kolima i s konjicima do Crvenog mora.

7 Tada zavapiše ka Gospodu, i postavih tamu između vas i Misiraca, i navedoh na njih more koje ih zatrpa, i oči vaše videše šta učinih od Misiraca; potom ostaste u pustinji dugo vremena.

8 Iza toga dovedoh vas u zemlju Amoreja koji življahu s one strane Jordana; i oni se pobiše s vama, ali ih dadoh vama u ruke, te naslediste zemlju njihovu, i istrebih ih ispred vas.

9 A Valak sin Seforov, car moavski, podiže se da se bije s Izrailjem, i posla te dozva Valama sina Veorovog da vas prokune.

10 Ali ne hteh poslušati Valama, te vas on još blagoslovi, i izbavih vas iz ruke njegove.

11 Potom pređoste preko Jordana, i dođoste pod Jerihon, i biše se s vama Jerihonjani, Amoreji i Ferezeji i Hananeji i Heteji i Gergeseji i Jeveji i Jevuseji; i dadoh ih vama u ruke.

12 I poslah pred vama stršljenove, koji ih izagnaše ispred vas, dva cara amorejska; ne mačem tvojim ni lukom tvojim.

13 I dadoh vam zemlju, koju ne radiste, i gradove, koje ne gradiste, i u njima živite; iz vinograda i iz maslinika, kojih niste sadili, jedete.

14 Zato sada bojte se Gospoda i služite Mu verno i istinito; i povrzite bogove, kojima su služili oci vaši s one strane reke i u Misiru, pa služite Gospodu.

15 Ako li vam nije drago služiti Gospodu, izaberite sebi danas kome ćete služiti: ili bogove kojima su služili oci vaši s one strane reke, ili bogove Amoreja u čijoj zemlji živite; a ja i dom moj služićemo Gospodu.

16 A narod odgovori i reče: Ne daj Bože da ostavimo Gospoda da služimo drugim bogovima.

17 Jer Gospod Bog naš, On je izveo nas i oce naše iz zemlje misirske, iz doma ropskog, i On je učinio pred našim očima one znake velike, i čuvao nas celim putem kojim idosmo, i po svim narodima kroz koje prođosmo.

18 I Gospod je isterao ispred nas sve narode i Amoreje, koji življahu u ovoj zemlji; i mi ćemo služiti Gospodu, jer je Bog naš.

19 A Isus reče narodu: Ne možete služiti Gospodu, jer je svet Bog, Bog revnitelj, neće podnositi vaše nevere i vaše grehe.

20 Kad ostavite Gospoda i stanete služiti tuđim bogovima, okrenuće se i zlo će vam učiniti, i istrebiće vas, pošto vam je dobro činio.

21 A narod reče Isusu: Ne, nego ćemo Gospodu služiti.

22 A Isus reče narodu: Sami ste sebi svedoci da ste izabrali sebi Gospoda da Mu služite. I oni rekoše: svedoci smo.

23 Povrzite dakle bogove tuđe što su među vama, i privijte srce svoje ka Gospodu Bogu Izrailjevom.

24 A narod reče Isusu: Gospodu Bogu svom služićemo i glas Njegov slušaćemo.

25 Tako učini Isus zavet s narodom onaj dan i postavi im uredbe i zakone u Sihemu.

26 I zapisa Isus ove reči u knjigu zakona Božjeg; i uzevši kamen velik podiže ga onde pod hrastom koji beše kod svetinje Gospodnje.

27 I reče Isus svom narodu: Evo, kamen ovaj neka vam bude svedočanstvo; jer je čuo sve reči Gospodnje, koje nam je govorio; i neka vam bude svedočanstvo da ne biste slagali Bogu svom.

28 Potom raspusti Isus narod, svakog na njegovo nasledstvo.

29 A posle ovih stvari umre Isus sin Navin sluga Gospodnji, kad mu beše sto i deset godina.

30 I pogreboše ga u međama nasledstva njegovog u Tamnat-Sarahu, koji je u gori Jefremovoj, sa severa gori Gasu.

31 I služi Izrailj Gospodu svega veka Isusovog i svega veka starešina, koje dugo živeše iza Isusa i koji su znali sva dela Gospodnja, koja učini Izrailju.

32 I kosti Josifove, koje donesoše sinovi Izrailjevi iz Misira, pogreboše u Sihemu, u delu polja koje je kupio Jakov od sinova Emora oca Sihemovog za sto novaca; i biše u sinova Josifovih u nasledstvu njihovom.

33 I Eleazar sin Aronov umre, i pogreboše ga na brdu Finesa sina njegovog, koje mu beše dano u gori Jefremovoj.

Exploring the Meaning of Joshua 24      

Napsal(a) Rev. Julian Duckworth

Joshua 24: The covenant at Shechem and the death of Joshua.

In the beginning of this final chapter, Joshua recounts God’s work for Israel in great detail, spanning the time before Abraham through Isaac and Jacob, the Israelites’ time as slaves in Egypt, and the exodus through the wilderness for many years, culminating with crossing the Jordan and taking Jericho.

Joshua then told the people of Israel that they were to choose whom they would serve: the gods of their fathers, or the Lord God of Israel. The people strongly affirmed that they would follow the Lord and be faithful to Him. They repeated this several times. Then Joshua told them that they were witnesses of their choice, and he renewed the covenant with them there, at Shechem. To mark the covenant, Joshua took a large stone and set it up as a witness to remind the Israelites of what they had sworn that day.

And after all of this, Joshua died, and was buried within his inheritance at Timnath Serah. Israel served the Lord all the days of Joshua, and continued to serve the Lord for some time after. And also Eleazar, the chief priest of Israel, died.

The bones of Joseph, which had been carried by Israel since they left slavery in Egypt, were then given their final resting place at Shechem in a plot of land originally bought by the family of Joseph.

The spiritual meaning of this chapter is all about commitment and devotion in our relationship with the Lord. Joshua’s review of events at the beginning is a reminder that the Lord leads us through life, with all its trials and blessings (see Swedenborg’s work, Heaven and Hell 18). In the work of regeneration, a high state of peace and of the Lord’s presence in us is followed by a state where we are in temptation and under attack from hell. In contrast, a state of temptation in which we stand firm and depend on the Lord leads to a state of trust, confidence, and the return of the Lord’s peace (see Swedenborg’s work, Arcana Caelestia 933[2]).

Our spiritual life involves many repeated choices. This is why it is significant that the Israelites repeated their promise to serve the Lord so many times. We may feel that our decision to follow the Lord is a final one, but the reality is that we uphold (or refute) this decision in our actions each and every day. We will need to choose time and time again, even though we believe we would always choose the Lord (see Swedenborg’s work, Divine Providence 321[5]).

A covenant is a formal agreement. Biblical covenants are between people and the Lord. The Lord will always honor his part in the covenant, and we are to ensure that we will honor our part. Spiritually, the covenant is about the empowerment in declaring our commitment to the Lord. ‘This I will do.’ There is no longer any uncertainty or vagueness about our commitment to God. It has been sealed (Arcana Caelestia 1038).

The fact that Joshua commemorates the covenant with a stone also has important spiritual significance for us. A stone represents the strength and durability of truth when it becomes a permanent factor in our life. Committing to follow the Lord’s truths gives us a sturdy foundation in life.

When a story in the Bible mentions death, it always reflects the changing of some state in us. When Joshua and Eleazar the priest die, it is like moving on from a state which has served us well into a new and different state. In our regeneration, the Lord wants us to keep exploring new thoughts and decisions, so that we are always progressing and never complacent (Arcana Caelestia 1382).

The mention of Joseph’s bones at the very end of the chapter is also very significant. These bones of Joseph stand for the continuity of the Lord’s truth, wisdom and providence with us and for us. They also stand for the preservation of all that happens in a person’s life. All of these events make us the people we are, and will always keep shaping our spirit (Arcana Caelestia 6592).
