1 Iza toga reče Gospod Isusu: Ne boj se i ne plaši se; uzmi sa sobom sav narod što je za boj, pa ustani i idi na Gaj; evo predadoh ti u ruke cara gajskog i narod njegov i grad njegov i zemlju njegovu.

2 I učini s Gajem i carem njegovim kako si učinio s Jerihonom i njegovim carem; ali plen iz njega i stoku njegovu razgrabite za se. Namesti zasedu iza grada.

3 I usta Isus i sav narod što beše za boj, da idu na Gaj; i izabra Isus trideset hiljada junaka, i posla ih noću;

4 I zapovedi im govoreći: Gledajte vi koji ćete biti u zasedi iza grada, da ne budete vrlo daleko od grada, nego budite svi gotovi.

5 A ja i sav narod što je sa mnom primaknućemo se ka gradu; pa kad oni izađu pred nas, mi ćemo kao i pre pobeći ispred njih.

6 Te će oni poći za nama dokle ih ne odvojimo od grada, jer će reći: Beže ispred nas kao i pre. I mi ćemo bežati ispred njih.

7 Tada vi izađite iz zasede i isterajte iz grada šta bude ostalo. Jer će vam ga dati Gospod Bog vaš u ruke.

8 A kad uzmete grad, zapalite ga ognjem; po reči Gospodnjoj učinite. Eto, zapovedio sam vam.

9 Tako ih posla Isus, i oni odoše u zasedu, i stadoše između Vetilja i Gaja, sa zapada Gaju; a Isus prenoći onu noćmeđu narodom.

10 A ujutru usta Isus rano i prebroja narod, pa pođe sa starešinama Izrailjevim pred narodom na Gaj.

11 I sva vojska što beše s njim pođe i primakavši se dođoše prema gradu i stadoše u logor sa severa Gaju; a beše dolina između njih i Gaja.

12 I uze oko pet hiljada ljudi, i namesti ih u zasedu između Vetilja i Gaja, sa zapada gradu Gaju.

13 I kad se namesti sav narod, sva vojska, što beše sa severa gradu i što beše u zasedi sa zapada gradu, izađe Isus onu noćusred doline.

14 I kad to vide car gajski, ljudi u gradu pohitaše i uraniše; i izađoše onaj čas u polje pred Izrailja u boj, car i sav narod njegov. A ne znaše da ima zaseda za njim, iza grada.

15 Tada Isus i sav Izrailj, kao da ih pobiše, nagoše bežati k pustinji.

16 A oni sazvaše sav narod što beše u gradu da ih teraju. I teraše Isusa, i odvojiše se od svog grada.

17 I ne osta niko u Gaju ni u Vetilju da ne pođe za Izrailjem; i ostaviše grad otvoren, i terahu Izrailja.

18 Tada reče Gospod Isusu: Digni zastavu što ti je u ruci prema Gaju, jer ću ti ga dati u ruke. I podiže Isus zastavu što mu beše u ruci prema gradu.

19 A oni što behu u zasedi odmah ustaše sa svog mesta, i potrčaše čim on podiže ruku svoju, i uđoše u grad i uzeše ga, i brzo zapališe grad ognjem.

20 A kad se Gajani obazreše, a to dim od grada dizaše se do neba, i ne imahu kuda bežati ni tamo ni amo; a narod koji bežaše u pustinju povrati se na one koji ga terahu.

21 I Isus i sav Izrailj videvši da je zaseda njihova uzela grad i gde se diže dim od grada, vratiše se i udariše na Gajane.

22 A oni iz grada izađoše pred njih, te behu među Izrailjcima odovud i odonud, i pobiše ih tako da nijedan ne osta živ niti uteče.

23 A cara gajskog uhvatiše živog i dovedoše k Isusu.

24 A kad pobiše Izrailjci sve Gajane u polju, u pustinji, kuda ih goniše, i padoše svi od oštrog mača, te se istrebiše, onda se vratiše svi Izrailjci u Gaj, i isekoše šta još beše u njemu oštrim mačem.

25 A svih što izgiboše onaj dan, i ljudi i žena, beše dvanaest hiljada, samih Gajana.

26 I Isus ne spusti ruku svoju, koju beše podigao sa zastavom, dok ne pobiše sve stanovnike gajske.

27 Samo stoku i plen iz grada onog razgrabiše Izrailjci za se, kao što beše Gospod zapovedio Isusu.

28 I Isus spali Gaj, i obrati ga u gomilu večnu, i u pustoš do današnjeg dana.

29 A cara gajskog obesi na drvo i ostavi do večera; a o zahodu sunčanom zapovedi Isus te skidoše telo njegovo s drveta i baciše pred vrata gradska, i nabacaše na nj veliku gomilu kamenja, koja stoji i danas.

30 Tada Isus načini oltar Gospodu Bogu Izrailjevom na gori Evalu,

31 Kao što beše zapovedio Mojsije sluga Gospodnji sinovima Izrailjevim, kao što piše u knjizi zakona Mojsijevog, oltar od celog kamenja, preko kog nije prevučeno gvožđe; i prinesoše na njemu žrtve paljenice Gospodu, i prinesoše žrtve zahvalne.

32 I prepisa onde na kamenju zakon Mojsijev, koji je napisao sinovima Izrailjevim.

33 I sav Izrailj i starešine njegove i upravitelji i sudije njegove stadoše s obe strane kovčega, prema sveštenicima Levitima, koji nošahu kovčeg zaveta Gospodnjeg, i stranac i domorodac; polovina prema gori Garizinu a polovina prema gori Evalu, kao što beše zapovedio Mojsije sluga Gospodnji da blagoslovi narod Izrailjev najpre.

34 I potom pročita sve reči zakona, blagoslov i prokletstvo, sve kako je napisano u knjizi zakona.

35 Ne bi ni jedne reči od svega što je Mojsije napisao, koje ne pročita Isus pred svim zborom Izrailjevim, i ženama i decom i strancima koji iđahu među njima.

Exploring the Meaning of Joshua 8      

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

Joshua 8: The fall of Ai and the renewal of the covenant.

The events of this chapter - and their spiritual meaning for us - follow on from the previous chapter. After their first setback at Ai, the Children of Israel take the city of Ai by using a clever ruse. Joshua chose thirty thousand men for the battle. The plan was for five thousand of them to hide near the city, while he led the main army to attack the city. Then, Joshua and his forces would pretend to run away, pursued by the men of Ai. Those who had hidden were then to come out, go into the city, and set it on fire. The men of Ai would see this and run back, get ambushed, and be caught between Joshua’s two armies.

It all happened as planned, and Israel took Ai. (See Arcana Caelestia 1557). As with Jericho, everything in Ai was commanded to be destroyed, except that in this case the livestock and the city’s spoils were to be kept. The whole city was burned and its king was hanged on a tree until sunset and then his body was thrown down at the city entrance with a great heap of stones put over it.

The basic spiritual meaning of any battle in the Bible such as this, is to show how a heavenly principle can and will overcome a hellish or evil attack, especially for us, during some temptation - when we seek to resist and fight back.

Evil is only strong in illusion and fear-mongering; when the light of what is true shines on evil it gets shown for what it is. (Heaven and Hell 49)

The city’s name “Ai” means “a heap”. The word gets used several times in the text of the chapter. A heap implies rubble and rubbish. Cities sometimes look noble and well-planned; in Ai’s case it was the very opposite - a heap, a ruin. (Heaven and Hell 586[2])

While Jericho generally represents our wrong thinking, which first stands in the way of our regeneration and spiritual will, Ai represents our evil emotions and our selfish passions. Both of them must fall before we can make further progress.

Joshua chooses a large number to go against a relatively few in Ai, who nevertheless all rush out to fight Israel. “There was not a man left in Ai or Bethel who did not go out after Israel. Thus they left the city open.” (Joshua 8:17)

Joshua’s tactic of drawing out the men of Ai means our challenge to evil - by confronting it with the truths and commandments we know and obey. Joshua’s pretence of fleeing away draws Ai out in glee, interpreting the flight as a real retreat. Then everything turns, and Joshua’s men go forward representing the power of the truth, the Word and our persuasion of their effectiveness in winning. (Arcana Caelestia 6344[4])

Ai’s men see their city on fire, for other Israelites entered Ai and set it ablaze. This represents the self-condemnation of evil, of hell, when it is exposed to what is true, heavenly and of God. But Joshua’s men, lying in ambush and waiting for the moment, represent our keen observation of how our selfish desires work to cause havoc in us. They are 5,000. Symbolically, in the Bible, five or its multiples always stand for a small amount - but enough to use.

Hanging the king of Ai stands for our need to put down the controlling power of any evil which stirs us. And all Ai is destroyed, because all evil must be turned against and refused.

Then, and only then, Joshua remakes the covenant with the Lord God; he builds an altar, he writes a copy on stones of the Law of Moses in the presence of all Israel, the priests stand in two groups in front of two mountains, then Joshua reads the words of blessing and cursing and all the Law of Moses.

After we resist any evil and its temptation, we must re-hear and re-affirm the truth that this was the Lord’s victory, not ours, and re-dedicate ourselves to the life the Lord gives us. (True Christian Religion 13[2])
