1 Nguni't ang mga anak ni Israel ay nakagawa ng pagsalangsang sa itinalagang bagay: sapagka't si Achan na anak ni Carmi, na anak ni Zabdi, na anak ni Zera, sa lipi ni Juda; ay kumuha sa itinalagang bagay, at ang galit ng Panginoon ay nagningas laban sa mga anak ni Israel.

2 At mula sa Jerico ay nagsugo si Josue ng mga lalake sa Hai na nasa siping ng Beth-aven, sa dakong silanganan ng Beth-el, at nagsalita sa kanila, na nagsasabi, Sumampa kayo at tiktikan ninyo ang lupain. At ang mga lalake ay yumaon at tiniktikan ang Hai.

3 At sila'y nagsibalik kay Josue, at sinabi sa kaniya, Huwag sumampa ang buong bayan, kundi sumampa lamang ang dalawa o tatlong libong lalake at sugatan ang Hai; huwag mong pagurin ang buong bayan doon; sapagka't sila'y kakaunti.

4 Sa gayo'y sumampa roon sa bayan ay may tatlong libong lalake: at sila'y tumakas sa harap ng mga lalake sa Hai.

5 At ang mga lalake sa Hai ay sumakit sa kanila ng may tatlong pu't anim na lalake; at hinabol nila sila mula sa harap ng pintuang-bayan hanggang sa Sebarim, at sinaktan sila sa babaan: at ang mga puso ng mga tao ay nanglumo, at naging parang tubig.

6 At hinapak ni Josue ang kaniyang mga suot, at nagpatirapa sa lupa sa harap ng kaban ng Panginoon hanggang sa kinahapunan, siya at ang mga matanda ng Israel; at sila'y nagsipagbuhos ng alabok sa kanilang ulo.

7 At sinabi ni Josue, Ay, Oh Panginoong Dios, bakit mo pinatawid ang bayang ito sa Jordan, upang ibigay kami sa kamay ng mga Amorrheo, na ipalipol kami? nakatigil sana kaming masaya at nakatahan sa dakong yaon ng Jordan!

8 Oh Panginoon, anong aking sasabihin pagkatapos na ang mga anak ng Israel ay makatalikod sa harap ng kanilang mga kaaway!

9 Sapagka't mababalitaan ng mga Cananeo at ng lahat na nananahan sa lupain, at kami ay kukubkubin at ihihiwalay ang aming pangalan sa lupa: at ano ang iyong gagawin sa iyong dakilang pangalan?

10 At sinabi ng Panginoon kay Josue, Bumangon ka; bakit ka nagpatirapa ng ganito?

11 Ang Israel ay nagkasala; oo, kanilang sinalangsang din ang aking tipan na aking iniutos sa kanila; oo, sila'y kumuha rin sa itinalagang bagay, at nagnakaw rin, at nagbulaan din; at sila'y naglagay rin sa kanilang sariling daladalahan.

12 Kaya't ang mga anak ni Israel ay hindi makatatayo sa harap ng kanilang mga kaaway; sila'y tumalikod sa harap ng kanilang mga kaaway, sapagka't sila'y naging sinumpa: ako'y hindi na sasa inyo pa, maliban sa inyong sirain ang itinalagang bagay sa gitna ninyo.

13 Bumangon ka, papagbanalin mo ang bayan, at sabihin mo, Mangagpakabanal kayo sa kinabukasan: sapagka't ganito ang sabi ng Panginoon, ng Dios ng Israel, May itinalagang bagay sa gitna mo, Oh Israel: ikaw ay hindi makatatayo sa harap ng iyong mga kaaway, hanggang sa inyong alisin ang itinalagang bagay sa gitna ninyo.

14 Sa kinaumagahan nga ay lalapit kayo ayon sa inyong mga lipi: at mangyayari, na ang lipi na pipiliin ng Panginoon ay lalapit ayon sa mga angkan: at ang angkan na pipiliin ng Panginoon ay lalapit ayon sa mga sangbahayan; at ang sangbahayan na pipiliin ng Panginoon ay lalapit bawa't lalake.

15 At mangyayari, na ang makunan ng itinalagang bagay ay susunugin sa apoy, siya at ang lahat niyang tinatangkilik: sapagka't kaniyang sinalangsang ang tipan ng Panginoon, at sapagka't siya'y gumawa ng kaululan sa Israel.

16 Sa gayo'y bumangong maaga si Josue sa kinaumagahan, at inilapit ang Israel ayon sa kanilang mga lipi: at ang lipi ni Juda ay napili:

17 At kaniyang inilapit ang angkan ni Juda; at napili ang angkan ng mga Zeraita: at kaniyang inilapit ang angkan ng mga Zeraita na bawa't lalake; at si Zabdi ay napili:

18 At kaniyang inilapit ang kaniyang sangbahayan bawa't lalake: at si Achan, na anak ni Carmi, na anak ni Zabdi, na anak ni Zera, sa lipi ni Juda, ay napili.

19 At sinabi ni Josue kay Achan, Anak ko, isinasamo ko sa iyo, na iyong luwalhatiin ang Panginoon, ang Dios ng Israel, at magpahayag ka sa kaniya; at ipahayag mo sa akin ngayon kung ano ang iyong ginawa; huwag kang maglihim sa akin.

20 At sumagot si Achan kay Josue, at sinabi, Sa katotohanan ay nagkasala ako laban sa Panginoon, sa Dios ng Israel, at ganito't ganito ang aking ginawa:

21 Nang aking makita sa samsam ang mainam na balabal na yaring Babilonia, at ang dalawang daang siklong pilak, at ang isang dila na ginto, na limang pung siklo ang timbang, ay akin ngang inimbot, at aking kinuha; at, narito, nangakukubli sa lupa sa gitna ng aking tolda, at ang pilak ay nasa ilalim niyaon.

22 Sa gayo'y nagsugo si Josue ng mga sugo at kanilang tinakbo ang tolda; at, narito, nakakubli sa kaniyang tolda, at ang pilak ay nasa ilalim niyaon.

23 At kanilang kinuha sa gitna ng tolda, at dinala kay Josue, at sa lahat ng mga anak ni Israel; at kanilang inilapag sa harap ng Panginoon.

24 At kinuha ni Josue, at ng buong Israel na kasama niya, si Achan na anak ni Zera at ang pilak, at ang balabal, at ang dila na ginto, at ang kaniyang mga anak na lalake at babae, at ang kaniyang mga baka, at ang kaniyang mga asno, at ang kaniyang mga tupa, at ang kaniyang tolda, at ang lahat niyang tinatangkilik: at kanilang isinampa sa libis ng Achor.

25 At sinabi ni Josue, Bakit mo kami binagabag? babagabagin ka sa araw na ito ng Panginoon. At binato siya ng mga bato ng buong Israel; at sinunog nila sila sa apoy, at binato sila ng mga bato.

26 At kanilang binuntunan siya ng malaking bunton na mga bato, hanggang sa araw na ito; at ang Panginoon ay nagpigil ng kabangisan ng kaniyang galit. Kaya't ang pangalan ng dakong yaon ay tinawag na, Ang libis ng Achor, hanggang sa araw na ito.

Exploring the Meaning of Joshua 7      

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

Joshua 7: The defeat at Ai, and the sin of Achan.

This chapter opens with the statement that Israel had sinned at Jericho, because an Israelite named Achan had kept something for himself, against the Lord's commandment. (But Joshua doesn't know this yet.)

The great victory at Jericho was quickly followed by an embarrassing defeat at Ai. The Israelites hadn't expected much difficulty in taking Ai, and sent just a few thousand men to attack it. They were routed.

Spiritually, we might say that pride goes before a fall, but more specifically, in the work of our regeneration we are never to rest on our laurels, but to always stay alert to each situation and how we are internally handling it. (Apocalypse Revealed 158)

Understandably, Joshua pours out his heart to the Lord, wondering why they have even crossed over the Jordan to simply be destroyed. The Lord tells him that their defeat at Ai was because Israel sinned by taking some of the forbidden things of Jericho. The Lord explains how to put this right, by identifying the wrongdoer and destroying him and his family.

Note the weakness of Joshua (as earlier also with Moses at times) when things go wrong and he feels confused, full of doubt, hurt and afraid. When things go well, we go well; when things go badly, we tend to go to pieces. And we ask, “Why? Why this, why me, why now?”

The Lord’s answer is a command, “Get up! Why are you lying on your face?” This is a pretty plain meaning: The Lord wants us to use such setbacks to be able to go forward, seeing the problem as a challenge and an opportunity and learning point.

Joshua is told to find the source of the wrong and the defeat. From all the tribes, one tribe will be selected by the Lord. From all its families, one family will be chosen. From all its households, one household will be chosen, and from that household, one man will be chosen. And Achan was the man and he is brought out. (Arcana Caelestia 5135)

This drawing-by-lot is a remarkable picture of our spiritual self-examination. We’re told that to make our general confession of ‘having done what we should not have done’ is almost worthless because we are likely to just carry on the same afterwards. (Arcana Caelestia 8390) Our personal inventory must be specific. What kind of thoughts have I been allowing myself recently? What did that make me feel in my heart? Did I welcome it or want nothing to do with it? It’s a kind of pinpointing, and it leads us to Achan, whose name in Hebrew means ‘trouble’ and ‘troubler’. (The New Jerusalem and its Heavenly Doctrine 164)

Achan, discovered, doesn't hide or deny his wrongdoing but openly admits that he has sinned against the Lord. He'd seen a beautiful garment, much silver, and a chunk of gold, and took them, and hid them in the earth in the middle of his tent. He confesses and indeed, his confession is transparent. So must our confession be when we see things in ourselves that go against the Lord’s truths and ways. They bring forth his stolen goods from his tent.

Then, in a comprehensive way, Joshua took everything Achan owned in its entirety, including the stolen goods, to the Valley of Achor (a name again meaning ‘trouble’) and stoned him and all his family and burned them with fire and raised a heap of stones over it all. This, to us, might well sound like a brutal and an unwarranted punishment.

Spiritually, the Lord does not punish us, ever. Rather, he commands that we turn from our evils, and suffer the consequences if we don't. The Lord does this to help and encourage us to stop following our own way and to commit ourselves to following and living His way. We can only conquer Canaan, representing heaven, when we do this. (Arcana Caelestia 8622)
