1 İsrailliler, Yeşunun ölümünden sonra RABbe, ‹‹Bizim için Kenanlılarla savaşmaya ilk kim gidecek?›› diye sordular.

2 RAB, ‹‹Yahuda oymağı gidecek›› dedi, ‹‹Kenan ülkesini onun eline teslim ediyorum.››

3 Yahudaoğulları, kardeşleri Şimonoğullarına, ‹‹Kenanlılarla savaşmak için payımıza düşen bölgeye bizimle birlikte gelin›› dediler, ‹‹Sonra biz de payınıza düşen bölgeye sizinle geliriz.›› Böylece Şimonoğulları Yahudaoğullarıyla birlikte gitti.

4 Yahudaoğulları saldırıya geçti. RAB Kenanlılarla Perizlileri ellerine teslim etti. Bezekte onlardan on bin kişiyi öldürdüler.

5 Adoni-Bezekle orada karşılaşıp savaşa tutuştular, Kenanlılarla Perizlileri yenilgiye uğrattılar.

6 Adoni-Bezek kaçtı, ama peşine düşüp onu yakaladılar; elleriyle ayaklarının başparmaklarını kestiler.

7 O zaman Adoni-Bezek şöyle dedi: ‹‹Elleriyle ayaklarının başparmakları kesilmiş yetmiş kral, soframdan düşen kırıntıları toplayıp yerdi. Tanrı bana onlara yaptıklarımın karşılığını veriyor.›› Adoni-Bezeki Yeruşalime götürdüler; orada öldü.

8 Yahudaoğulları Yeruşalime saldırıp kenti aldılar; halkı kılıçtan geçirerek kenti ateşe verdiler.

9 Sonra dağlık bölgede, Negevde ve Şefelada yaşayan Kenanlılarla savaşmak üzere güneye yöneldiler.

10 Eski adı Kiryat-Arba olan Hevronda yaşayan Kenanlıların üzerine yürüyerek Şeşay, Ahiman ve Talmayı yenilgiye uğrattılar.

11 Oradan eski adı Kiryat-Sefer olan Devir Kenti halkının üzerine yürüdüler.

12 Kalev, ‹‹Kiryat-Sefer halkını yenip orayı ele geçirene kızım Aksayı eş olarak vereceğim›› dedi.

13 Kenti Kalevin küçük kardeşi Kenazın oğlu Otniel ele geçirdi. Bunun üzerine Kalev kızı Aksayı ona eş olarak verdi.

14 Kız Otnielin yanına varınca, onu babasından bir tarla istemeye zorladı. Kalev, eşeğinden inen kızına, ‹‹Bir isteğin mi var?›› diye sordu.

15 Kız, ‹‹Bana bir armağan ver›› dedi, ‹‹Madem Negevdeki toprakları bana verdin, su kaynaklarını da ver.›› Böylece Kalev yukarı ve aşağı su kaynaklarını ona verdi.

16 Musanın kayınbabasının torunları olan Kenliler, Yahudaoğullarıyla birlikte Hurma Kentinden ayrılıp Aratın güneyindeki Yahuda Çölünde yaşamaya gittiler.

17 Bundan sonra Yahudaoğulları, kardeşleri Şimonoğullarıyla birlikte gidip Sefat Kentinde oturan Kenanlıları yenilgiye uğrattılar. Kenti tümüyle yıktılar ve oraya Horma adını verdiler.

18 Yahudaoğulları Gazzeyi, Aşkelonu, Ekronu ve bunlara bağlı toprakları da ele geçirdiler.

19 RAB Yahudaoğullarıyla birlikteydi. Yahudaoğulları dağlık bölgeyi ele geçirdilerse de ovada yaşayan halkı kovamadılar. Çünkü bunların demirden savaş arabaları vardı.

20 Musanın sözü uyarınca Hevronu Kaleve verdiler. Kalev de Anakın üç torununu oradan sürdü.

21 Bununla birlikte Benyaminoğulları Yeruşalimde yaşayan Yevusluları kovmadılar. Yevuslular bugün de Yeruşalimde Benyaminoğullarıyla birlikte yaşıyorlar.

22 Yusufun soyundan gelenler Beytelin üzerine yürüdüler. RAB onlarla birlikteydi.

23-24 Eski adı Luz olan Beytel Kenti hakkında bilgi toplamak için gönderdikleri casuslar kentten çıkan bir adam gördüler. Ona, ‹‹Kentin girişini bize gösterirsen, sana iyi davranırız›› dediler.

25 Kentin girişini gösteren adamla ailesini serbest bıraktılar, kent halkını ise kılıçtan geçirdiler.

26 Adam Hitit topraklarına göç ederek Luz adında bir kent kurdu; kent bugün de bu adla anılıyor.

27 Manaşşeoğulları Beytşean, Taanak, Dor, Yivleam, Megiddo ve bunların çevre köylerindeki halkı kovmadı. Çünkü Kenanlılar bu topraklarda kalmakta kararlıydı.

28 İsrailliler Kenan halkını tümüyle kovmadılar; ama zamanla güçlenince onları angaryasına çalıştırdılar.

29 Efrayimoğulları Gezerde yaşayan Kenanlıları buradan sürmediler. Kenanlılar Gezerde İsraillilerin arasında yaşadılar.

30 Zevulun da Kitron ve Nahalol halklarını kovmadı. İsrailliler arasında yaşayan bu Kenanlılar angarya işler yaptılar.

31 Aşeroğullarına gelince, onlar da Akko, Sayda, Ahlav, Akziv, Helba, Afek ve Rehov halklarını kovmadılar.

32 Bu topraklardaki Kenanlıları kovmayıp onlarla birlikte yaşadılar.

33 Naftali Beytşemeş ve Beytanat halkını kovmadı. Buraların halkı olan Kenanlılarla birlikte yaşayıp onları angaryasına çalıştırdı.

34 Amorlular Danoğullarını ovaya inmekten alıkoyarak dağlık bölgelerde tuttular.

35 Amorlular Heres Dağında, Ayalonda ve Şaalvimde kalmakta kararlıydılar. Yusufun torunları güçlenince onları angaryasına çalıştırmaya başladılar.

36 Amorlular'ın sınırı Akrep Geçidi'nden Sela'ya ve ötesine uzanıyordu.

Exploring the Meaning of Judges 1      

Napsal(a) Rev. Julian Duckworth

Judges 1: The continuing conquest of Canaan.

The book of Judges follows on almost seamlessly from Joshua. It is called ‘Judges’ because a number of regional leaders arose and made judgments for the people, often actively defending Israel from outside oppression. A pattern emerges in Judges: Israel disobeys the Lord – an enemy oppresses Israel – the Lord raises a leader – the leader is victorious against the enemy – there is peace for a time – Israel disobeys the Lord again.

There were twelve judges in all, about whom we either hear very much or next to nothing. The number twelve (as with the twelve tribes of Israel, the twelve disciples, and other examples in the Word), stands for all the various aspects of spirituality that we need to understand, develop, and put to use. A clue is often found in the meaning of their names, because biblical names are nearly always linked to spiritual qualities, such as ‘courage’, or ‘one who walks with God’ (see Swedenborg’s work, Arcana Caelestia 10216).

The theme of this first chapter is the further conquest of the land. The Israelites asked the Lord, “Who shall go up and fight for us?” And the Lord said that the tribe of Judah would go, because the Lord had delivered the land into their hand. Judah then called on the tribe of Simeon to join them, and they won many battles against the Canaanites still in the land.

One Canaanite king, Adoni-bezek, fled and was captured by the Israelites, who then cut off his thumbs and big toes. Adoni-bezek said that God had dealt justice by punishing him, as he had previously cut off seventy kings’ thumbs and big toes, and they had to gather scraps of food under his table.

Then Caleb, a leader of Israel during the journey through the wilderness, said that the man who took Kirjath-sepher (Caleb’s inheritance city) from the Canaanites would marry his daughter, Achsah. Caleb’s nephew, Othniel, took the city and Achsah was given to him. Achsah asked her father for the blessing of springs of water, and Caleb gave her the upper and lower springs.

Next, spies were sent to Bethel. They met a man there, and said that if he directed them the entrance to the city, they would show him mercy. He helped them, and they took the city but showed mercy on the man and all his family. After all of this, the man built a new city called Luz in the land of the Hittites.

The chapter ends by listing the twelve tribes, as well as the Canaanite peoples who remained unsubdued in each of their territories.

*****

The overarching spiritual theme of Judges is the process of our regeneration. As the opening of Judges reminds us, there were still parts of the land and various tribes that Israel needed to conquer. In fact, the Israelites never finished driving enemies out of their land. In the same way, we need to control our inherited human nature, but it is never completely wiped out (see Swedenborg’s work, Divine Love and Wisdom 238).

During regeneration, we will discover deeper and subtler self-centered states in ourselves, which need to be mitigated. Each judge raised by the Lord stands for our determination to deal with these states, using the Word as a guide. This brings us a period of peace, followed by the start of another personal discovery.

When the Israelites chose which tribes would fight for them, it was no coincidence that they selected Judah and Simeon. Judah (who was a prominent tribe of Israel) and Simeon (who usually acts with another tribe) stand for the highest things in our spiritual life: our love for the Lord, and our obedience to the Lord’s Word. Choosing Judah and Simeon as our strength will always bring victory in our regeneration (see Arcana Caelestia 3654 and Apocalypse Explained 443).

The spiritual meaning in the story of Adoni-bezek is about taking away the power of our self-love, as cutting off thumbs and big toes makes hands and feet virtually useless. When we work on our lower nature, we are to minimize its control over us. It is the same with any influences from hell; their power must end. Adoni-bezek’s comment about doing the same to seventy kings vividly describes how self-love can only lead to our downfall (Arcana Caelestia 10062[4]).

The delightful story of Caleb, Achsah and Othniel illustrates that after battle, there is rest and reward. In the same way, we strengthen the ‘marriage’ of good and truth in us after overcoming spiritual struggles (see Swedenborg’s work, Divine Love and Wisdom 409). The springs of water given to Achsah stand for the truths which flow into our mind, both about the ‘upper’ things of the Lord and heaven, and those ‘lower’ ones about spiritual life and responsibility.

The episode about the man from Bethel means that when we open up our life to the Lord to allow Him to guide us, we become blessed (Arcana Caelestia 3928). Then our life can be re-built in very practical and good ways, represented by the Hittites.

The final mention of the Canaanites still in the land points to the continuing presence of our unregenerate qualities. Although we may progress through the work of regeneration, we are still human, and we will always have flaws left to improve on.
