1 At ang buong kapisanan ng mga anak ni Israel ay nagpupulong sa Silo, at itinayo ang tabernakulo ng kapisanan doon: at ang lupain ay sumuko sa harap nila.

2 At nalabi sa mga anak ni Israel ay pitong lipi na hindi pa nababahaginan ng kanilang mana.

3 At sinabi ni Josue sa mga anak ni Israel, Hanggang kailan magpapakatamad kayo upang pasukin ninyong ariin ang lupain na ibinigay sa inyo ng Panginoon, ng Dios ng inyong mga magulang?

4 Maghalal kayo sa inyo ng tatlong lalake sa bawa't lipi: at aking susuguin, at sila'y babangon at lalakad sa lupain, at iguguhit ayon sa kanilang mana; at sila'y paririto sa akin.

5 At kanilang babahagihin ng pitong bahagi: ang Juda ay mananahan sa hangganan niyaon na dakong timugan, at ang sangbahayan ni Jose ay mananahan sa kanilang hangganan sa dakong hilagaan.

6 At inyong iguguhit ang lupain ng pitong bahagi, at inyong dadalhin ang pagkaguhit dito sa akin: at aking ipagsasapalaran dito sa inyo sa harap ng Panginoon natin Dios;

7 Sapagka't ang mga Levita ay walang bahagi sa gitna ninyo; sapagka't ang pagkasaserdote sa Panginoon ay siyang kanilang mana: at ang Gad, at ang Ruben at ang kalahating lipi ni Manases ay tumanggap na ng kanilang mana sa dako roon ng Jordan na dakong silanganan, na ibinigay sa kanila ni Moises na lingkod ng Panginoon.

8 At ang mga lalake ay tumindig at yumaon: at ibinilin sa kanila ni Josue na yumaong iguhit ang lupain, na sinasabi, Yumaon kayo at lakarin ninyo ang lupain at iguhit ninyo at bumalik kayo sa akin, at aking ipagsasapalaran sa inyo dito sa harap ng Panginoon sa Silo.

9 At ang mga lalake ay yumaon at nilakad ang lupain, at iginuhit sa isang aklat ayon sa mga bayan na pitong bahagi, at sila'y naparoon kay Josue sa kampamento sa Silo.

10 At ipinagsapalaran ni Josue sa kanila sa Silo sa harap ng Panginoon; at binahagi roon ni Josue ang lupain sa mga anak ni Israel ayon sa kanilang mga bahagi.

11 At ang kapalaran ng lipi ng mga anak ni Benjamin ay lumabas ayon sa kanilang mga angkan: at ang hangganan ng kanilang kapalaran ay palabas sa pagitan ng mga anak ni Juda at ng mga anak ni Jose.

12 At ang kanilang hangganan sa hilagaang sulok ay mula sa Jordan; at ang hangganan ay pasampa sa dako ng Jerico sa hilagaan, at pasampa sa lupaing maburol na dakong kalunuran; at ang labasan niyaon ay sa ilang ng Beth-aven.

13 At ang hangganan ay patuloy mula roon hanggang sa Luz, sa dako ng Luz (na siyang Beth-el), na dakong timugan; at ang hangganan ay pababa sa Ataroth-addar, sa tabi ng bundok na dumudoon sa timugan ng Beth-horon sa ibaba.

14 At ang hangganan ay patuloy at paliko sa kalunurang sulok na dakong timugan mula sa bundok na nakalatag sa harap ng Beth-horon na dakong timugan, at ang mga labasan niyaon ay sa Chiriath-baal (na siyang Chiriath-jearim), na bayan ng mga anak ni Juda: ito ang kalunurang sulok.

15 At ang timugang sulok ay mula sa kahulihulihang bahagi ng Chiriath-jearim at ang hangganan ay palabas sa dakong kalunuran, at palabas sa bukal ng tubig ng Nephtoa:

16 At ang hangganan ay pababa sa kahulihulihang bahagi ng bundok na nakalatag sa harap ng libis ng anak ni Hinnom, na nasa libis ng Rephaim na dakong hilagaan; at pababa sa libis ni Hinnom, sa dako ng Jebuseo na dakong timugan at pababa sa En-rogel;

17 At paabot sa hilagaan at palabas sa En-semes, at palabas sa Geliloth na nasa tapat ng pagsampa sa Adummim; at pababa sa bato ng Bohan na anak ni Ruben,

18 At patuloy sa tagiliran na tapat ng Araba sa dakong hilagaan, at pababa sa Araba;

19 At ang hangganan ay patuloy sa tabi ng Beth-hogla na dakong hilagaan, at ang labasan ng hangganan ay sa hilagaang dagat-dagatan ng dagat na Alat, sa timugang dulo ng Jordan; ito ang timugang hangganan.

20 At ang Jordan ay hangganan niyaon sa sulok na silanganan. Ito ang mana ng mga anak ni Benjamin ayon sa mga hangganan niyaon sa palibot, ayon sa kanilang mga angkan.

21 Ang mga bayan nga ng lipi ng mga anak ni Benjamin ayon sa kanilang mga angkan ay Jerico, at Beth-hogla, at Emec-casis:

22 At Beth-araba, at Samaraim, at Beth-el,

23 At Avim, at Para, at Ophra,

24 At Cephar-hammonai, at Ophni, at Gaba, labing dalawang bayan pati ng mga nayon ng mga yaon.

25 Gabaon, at Rama, at Beeroth,

26 At Mizpe, at Chephira, at Moza;

27 At Recoem, at Irpeel, at Tarala;

28 At Sela, Eleph, at Jebus (na siyang Jerusalem), Gibeath, at Chiriath; labing apat na bayan pati ng mga nayon ng mga yaon. Ito ang mana ng mga anak ni Benjamin ayon sa kanilang mga angkan.

Exploring the Meaning of Joshua 18      

Napsal(a) Rev. Julian Duckworth

Joshua 18: The rest of the land is divided up among the 7 remaining tribes, and the tribe of Benjamin receives its lot.

After several chapters covering the allocation of the land for Reuben, Gad, Judah, Ephraim and Manasseh, there were still seven tribes to be provided for. Before this was done, Joshua gathered these seven tribes together and told them to choose three men from each tribe. These men went and surveyed the region, divided up all the land and cities into seven parts, and recorded everything in a book. Then they came back to Joshua, who cast lots to decide where the seven remaining tribes would live.

The first of the seven allocations was for the tribe of Benjamin. Benjamin was the youngest of the sons of Jacob, and he was a full brother to Joseph. Their mother, Rachel, whom Jacob had loved so much, died giving birth to Benjamin.

The city of Jerusalem was first allocated to Benjamin, but in time became more associated with Judah. In fact, these were the two tribes which later made up the kingdom of Judah, as opposed to the ten northern tribes forming the kingdom of Israel. Benjamin’s territory included the cities of Jericho, Ai and Gibeon, all of which had been significant soon after Israel crossed the River Jordan. Saul, the first king of Israel, was a Benjamite.

This story about surveying the land represents our need to know things as they truly are. This could mean many things: for example, exploring the idea of heaven, or hell, or life in this world, or a spiritual teaching such as providence. It might be to learn about justice and compassion, or true freedom. It may be our need to look honestly within ourselves and recognize some of our self-centred ways (see Swedenborg’s work, Arcana Caelestia 1612).

The Israelite’s findings about the land were recorded in a book, which really would have been a scroll. This is like our ‘book of life’, in which everything about us down to the least detail is preserved so that in eternity, we shall know who we are (see Swedenborg’s Apocalypse Explained 199). Joshua drew lots so the Lord’s will would be clear to the people of Israel.

The spiritual meaning of Benjamin needs some careful explanation. Technically, it means ’the spiritual of the celestial’, and this is our ability to understand the reason for the most loving experiences we can have. It is heightened thinking joining with heightened feeling. Benjamin was the youngest son, the special brother of Joseph, who stands for the Lord (Arcana Caelestia 4585).

With this in mind, it is useful to know that Bethlehem, the town where Jesus was born, lay in the territory of Benjamin. Bethlehem’s name means ‘house of bread’ giving us the idea of nourishment for our physical and our spiritual lives. God came into the world to bring us the food of heaven and nourishment from the Word, so that we may fight our evils and choose what is good (Arcana Caelestia 6247, 4594).
