1 At nangyari nang mabalitaan ni Jabin na hari sa Hasor, na siya'y nagsugo kay Jobab na hari sa Madon, at sa hari sa Simron, at sa hari sa Achsaph,

2 At sa mga hari na nangasa hilagaan, sa lupaing maburol, at sa Araba sa timugan ng Cinneroth at sa mababang lupain, at sa mga kaitaasan ng Dor sa kalunuran,

3 Sa Cananeo sa silanganan at sa kalunuran at sa Amorrheo, at sa Hetheo, at sa Pherezeo, at sa Jebuseo sa lupaing maburol, at sa Heveo sa ibaba ng Hermon, sa lupain ng Mizpa.

4 At sila'y lumabas, sila at ang kanilang mga hukbo na kasama nila, maraming tao, na gaya nga ng mga buhangin na nasa baybayin ng dagat sa karamihan, na may mga kabayo at mga karo na totoong marami.

5 At ang lahat ng mga haring ito ay nagpipisan; at sila'y naparoon at humantong na magkakasama sa tubig ng Merom, upang makipaglaban sa Israel.

6 At sinabi ng Panginoon kay Josue, Huwag kang matakot ng dahil sa kanila; sapagka't bukas sa ganitong oras ay ibibigay ko silang lahat na patay sa harap ng Israel: inyong pipilayan ang kanilang mga kabayo, at sisilaban ng apoy ang kanilang mga karo.

7 Sa gayo'y biglang naparoon si Josue, at ang buong bayang pangdigma na kasama niya, laban sa kanila sa tabi ng tubig ng Merom, at dumaluhong sila sa kanila.

8 At ibinigay sila ng Panginoon sa kamay ng Israel, at sinaktan nila, at hinabol nila sila hanggang sa malaking Sidon, at hanggang sa Misrephoth-maim, at hanggang sa libis ng Mizpa, sa dakong silanganan; at sinaktan nila sila hanggang sa wala silang iniwan sa kanila nalabi.

9 At ginawa ni Josue sa kanila ang gaya ng iniutos ng Panginoon sa kaniya; kaniyang pinilayan ang kanilang mga kabayo, at sinilaban ng apoy ang kanilang mga karo.

10 At bumalik si Josue nang panahong yaon at sinakop ang Hasor, at sinugatan ng tabak ang hari niyaon: sapagka't ang Hasor ng una ay pangulo ng lahat ng mga kahariang yaon.

11 At kanilang sinugatan ng talim ng tabak ang lahat na tao na nandoon, na kanilang lubos na nilipol: walang naiwan na may hininga, at kaniyang sinilaban ng apoy ang Hasor.

12 At ang lahat ng mga bayan ng mga haring yaon at ang lahat ng mga hari ng mga yaon ay sinakop ni Josue, at sinugatan niya sila ng talim ng tabak at lubos na nilipol sila; gaya ng iniutos ni Moises na lingkod ng Panginoon.

13 Nguni't tungkol sa mga bayang natatayo sa kanilang mga bunton, ay walang sinunog ang Israel sa mga yaon, liban sa Hasor lamang, na sinunog ni Josue.

14 At ang lahat na samsam sa mga bayang ito at ang mga hayop ay kinuha ng mga anak ni Israel na pinakasamsam para sa kanilang sarili; nguni't ang bawa't tao ay sinugatan nila ng talim ng tabak hanggang sa kanilang nalipol sila, ni hindi nagiwan sila ng anomang may hininga.

15 Kung paanong nagutos ang Panginoon kay Moises na kaniyang lingkod, ay gayon nagutos si Moises kay Josue: at gayon ang ginawa ni Josue; wala siyang iniwang hindi yari sa lahat na iniutos ng Panginoon kay Moises.

16 Sa gayo'y sinakop ni Josue ang buong lupaing yaon, ang lupaing maburol, at ang buong Timugan, at ang buong lupain ng Gosen, at ang mababang lupain, at ang Araba, at ang lupaing maburol ng Israel, at ang mababang lupain niyaon;

17 Mula sa bundok ng Halac na paahon sa Seir, hanggang sa Baal-gad sa libis ng Libano sa ibaba ng bundok Hermon: at kinuha niya ang lahat nilang hari, at sinaktan niya sila at ipinapatay niya sila.

18 Si Josue ay nakipagdigmang malaong panahon sa lahat ng mga haring yaon.

19 Walang bayan na nakipagpayapaan sa mga anak ni Israel, liban ang mga Heveo na mga taga Gabaon: kanilang kinuhang lahat sa pakikipagbaka.

20 Sapagka't inakala nga ng Panginoon na papagmatigasin ang kanilang puso, upang pumaroon laban sa Israel sa pakikipagbaka, upang kanilang malipol silang lubos, na huwag silang magtamo ng biyaya, kundi kaniyang malipol sila, gaya ng iniutos ng Panginoon kay Moises.

21 At naparoon si Josue nang panahong yaon at nilipol ang mga Anaceo mula sa lupaing maburol, sa Hebron, sa Debir, sa Anab, at sa buong lupaing maburol ng Juda, at sa buong lupaing maburol ng Israel: nilipol silang lubos ni Josue sangpu ng kanilang mga bayan.

22 Walang naiwan sa mga Anaceo sa lupain ng mga anak ni Israel: sa Gaza, sa Gath, at sa Asdod lamang, nagiwan siya ng ilan.

23 Gayon sinakop ni Josue ang buong lupain ayon sa lahat na sinalita ng Panginoon kay Moises; at ibinigay ni Josue na pinakamana sa Israel, ayon sa kanilang pagkakabahagi sangayon sa kanilang mga lipi. At ang lupain ay nagpahinga sa pakikipagdigma.

Exploring the Meaning of Joshua 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]).
