1 Si Josue nga'y matanda at puspos ng mga taon; at sinabi ng Panginoon sa kaniya, Ikaw ay matanda at puspos ng mga taon, at may nalalabi pang totoong maraming lupain na aariin.

2 Ito ang lupain na nalalabi pa: ang lahat na lupain ng mga Filisteo, at ang lahat na Gessureo:

3 Mula sa Sihor na nasa tapat ng Egipto, hanggang sa hangganan ng Accaron na dakong hilagaan, na nabilang sa mga Cananeo: ang limang pangulo ng mga Filisteo, ang mga Gazeo, ang mga Asdodeo, ang mga Ascaloneo, ang mga Getheo, ang mga Accaronneo; gayon din ang mga Heveo,

4 Sa dakong timugan: ang lahat na lupain ng mga Cananeo, at ang Mehara, na nauukol sa mga Sidonio hanggang sa Aphec, na hangganan ng mga Amorrheo;

5 At ang lupain ng mga Gebalita at ang buong Libano, sa dakong sinisikatan ng araw, mula sa Baal-gad, sa ibaba ng bundok Hermon hanggang sa pasukan sa Hamat:

6 Ang lahat ng taga lupaing maburol mula sa Libano hanggang sa Misrephoth-maim, sa makatuwid baga'y lahat ng mga Sidonio; sila'y aking itataboy mula sa harap ng mga anak ni Israel: iyo lamang bahagihin sa Israel na pinakamana, gaya ng iniutos ko sa iyo.

7 Iyo ngang bahagihin ang lupaing ito na pinakamana sa siyam na lipi, at sa kalahating lipi ni Manases.

8 Sa kaniya'y tinanggap ng mga Rubenita at ng mga Gadita, ang kanilang mana, na ibinigay sa kanila ni Moises, sa dako roon ng Jordan na dakong silanganan gaya ng ibinigay sa kanila ni Moises na lingkod ng Panginoon;

9 Mula sa Aroer na nasa tabi ng libis ng Arnon, at ang bayan na nasa gitna ng libis, at ng buong kapatagan ng Medeba hanggang sa Dibon:

10 At ang lahat na bayan ni Sehon na hari ng mga Amorrheo, na naghahari sa Hesbon hanggang sa hangganan ng mga anak ni Ammon;

11 At ang Galaad, at ang hangganan ng mga Gessureo at ng mga Maachateo at ang buong bundok ng Hermon, at ang buong Basan hanggang sa Salca;

12 Ang buong kaharian ni Og sa Basan, na naghari sa Astaroth at sa Edrei (na siyang naiwang labi sa mga Rephaim); sapagka't sinaktan ang mga ito ni Moises at mga itinaboy.

13 Gayon ma'y hindi itinaboy ng mga anak ni Israel ang mga Gessureo, ni ang mga Maachateo; kundi ang Gessureo at ang Maachateo ay tumahan sa gitna ng Israel hanggang sa araw na ito.

14 Ang lipi lamang ni Levi ang hindi niya binigyan ng mana; ang mga handog sa Panginoon, sa Dios ng Israel na pinaraan sa apoy ay siyang kaniyang mana, gaya ng sinalita niya sa kaniya.

15 At nagbigay si Moises sa lipi ng mga anak ni Ruben ng ayon sa kanilang mga angkan.

16 At ang kanilang hangganan ay mula sa Aroer, na nasa tabi ng libis ng Arnon, at ang bayang nasa gitna ng libis, at ang buong kapatagan sa tabi ng Medeba;

17 Ang Hesbon at ang lahat ng mga bayan niyaon na nasa kapatagan; ang Dibon at ang Bamoth-baal, at ang Beth-baal-meon;

18 At ang Jaas, at ang Ced-demoth, at ang Mephaath;

19 At ang Chiriataim, at ang Sibma, at ang Zereth-shahar, sa bundok ng libis;

20 At ang Beth-peor, at ang mga tagudtod ng Pisga, at ng Beth-jesimoth;

21 At ang lahat ng mga bayan sa kapatagan at ang buong kaharian ni Sehon na hari ng mga Amorrheo na naghari sa Hesbon, na siyang sinaktan ni Moises na gayon din ang mga pinuno sa Madian, si Hevi, si Recem, at si Sur, at si Hur, at si Reba, na mga prinsipe ni Sehon, na tumahan sa lupain.

22 Si Balaam man na anak ni Beor na manghuhula, ay pinatay ng mga anak ni Israel ng tabak sa gitna ng nalabi sa kanilang nangapatay.

23 At ang hangganan ng mga anak ni Ruben ay ang Jordan, at ang hangganan niyaon. Ito ang mana ng mga anak ni Ruben ayon sa kanilang mga angkan, ang mga bayan at ang mga nayon niyaon.

24 At si Moises ay nagbigay sa lipi ni Gad, sa mga anak ni Gad, ng ayon sa kanilang mga angkan.

25 At ang kanilang hangganan ay ang Jacer, at ang lahat na bayan ng Galaad, at ang kalahati ng lupain ng mga anak ni Ammon hanggang sa Aroer na nasa tapat ng Rabba;

26 At mula sa Hesbon hanggang sa Ramathmizpe, at sa Betonim; at mula sa Mahanaim hanggang sa hangganan ng Debir.

27 At sa libis, ang Beth-aram, at ang Beth-nimra, at ang Sucoth, at ang Saphon, na labis ng kaharian ni Sehon na hari sa Hesbon, ang Jordan at ang hangganan niyaon, hanggang sa kaduluduluhang bahagi ng dagat ng Cinnereth, sa dako roon ng Jordan na dakong silanganan.

28 Ito ang mana ng mga anak ni Gad ayon sa kanilang mga angkan, ang mga bayan at ang mga nayon niyaon.

29 At si Moises ay nagbigay ng mana sa kalahating lipi ni Manases: at yao'y sa kalahating lipi ng mga anak ni Manases ayon sa kanilang mga angkan.

30 At ang kanilang hangganan ay mula sa Mahanaim, ang buong Basan, ang buong kaharian ni Og na hari sa Basan at ang lahat ng mga bayan ng Jair na nasa Basan, anim na pung bayan.

31 At ang kalahati ng Galaad at ang Astaroth at ang Edrei, ang mga bayan ng kaharian ni Og sa Basan, ay sa mga anak ni Machir na anak ni Manases, sa makatuwid baga'y sa kalahati ng mga anak ni Machir ayon sa kanilang mga angkan.

32 Ito ang mga mana na binahagi ni Moises sa mga kapatagan ng Moab, sa dako roon ng Jordan sa Jerico, na dakong silanganan.

33 Nguni't sa lipi ni Levi ay walang ibinigay si Moises na mana: ang Panginoon, ang Dios ng Israel ay siyang kanilang mana, gaya ng kaniyang sinalita sa kanila.

  

Exploring the Meaning of Joshua 13      

Joshua 13: The start of the tribal territory allocations.

Now that Israel had conquered the land of Canaan, the Lord commanded Joshua to divide the land between the twelve tribes. The next seven chapters tell how the the land of Canaan was divided (see Swedenborg’s work, Arcana Caelestia 1413, to read more about the spiritual meaning).

Chapter 13 deals with the territories given to the tribes of Reuben, Gad and one half of Manasseh, all of which are on the other side of the river Jordan. Reuben was given the southern lands; Gad was given the extensive middle region, much of which is an area called Gilead; and half the tribe of Manasseh received the northern land which is on the other side of the Jordan.

It is also worth noting that the first few verses say much of the land remained to be conquered. However, at the end of chapter 11, we read that Joshua took the whole land as the Lord had commanded Moses.

This may seem contradictory, but spiritually it fits very well. In our regeneration, we aim to conquer our self-centred nature, and allow the Lord to rule us with his truth. This is spiritually ‘conquering the whole land’. But even so, our natural thoughts and desires sometimes rise up to trouble us, and these times are like the parts of the land that remain to be conquered. This is why we must recognize our complete dependence on the Lord (Arcana Caelestia 8326).

The Lord giving land as inheritance to each of the twelve tribes represents the way that He gives us our spiritual life. As we do the work of spiritual ‘conquering’ - living by our purpose to serve the Lord - we feel more and more that we can use our understanding of God and His Word in our actions every day.

The twelve tribes stand for the whole spectrum of what spiritual life involves, and each tribe relates to a specific quality of our spiritual living (Arcana Caelestia 3858). For example, we need to be discerning, positive, respectful of others, and so on. Each tribe has a sizeable area of the land, and is part of the integrity of the whole nation.

The territories given to Reuben, Gad and half of Manasseh are not part of Canaan, but they are linked to it. These areas represent our outward life: the way we work, live, rest, and relate with other people. This is the ‘casing’ of our spiritual life, and it is essential.

The tribe of Reuben – the eldest son of Jacob – stands for our initial need to see the truths from the Lord in the Word. By ‘seeing’ we mean meeting them, looking carefully, being attentive, coming to understand what they ask of us, and realising how important they are. It is not a vague impression that the Lord’s teachings are important, but a real first step for us (Arcana Caelestia 3866).

The tribe of Gad stands for our ability to see that knowledge and truth need to be used to perform good works. Gad’s name means ‘a troop,’ calling to mind soldiers marching in formation to go and sort things out properly. This is something we can apply to ourselves and to the world around us. We just need to watch that it doesn’t get too heavy-handed (See Swedenborg’s work, Apocalypse Explained 435[7]).

The tribe of Manasseh represents the spiritual good which supports our will to live a life which is just, fair and honourable because it is based on God. In fact, Manasseh – which means ‘forgetfulness’ – stands for our need to remember that ‘my will’ is really ‘the Lord’s will for me’. Our will needs to be focused on outward life and also inwardly open to the Lord, which is why half of Manasseh has land beyond the Jordan and half has land within Canaan (Arcana Caelestia 5353).
