1 İsrailliler yine RABbin gözünde kötü olanı yaptılar. RAB de onları yedi yıl süreyle Midyanlıların eline teslim etti.

2 Midyan boyunduruğu İsraillilere öyle ağır geldi ki, dağlarda kendilerine sığınaklar, mağaralar, kaleler yaptılar.

3 Ekin ektikleri vakit, Midyanlılar, Amalekliler ve öbür doğulu halklar topraklarına girip

4 ordugah kurarlardı. Gazzeye dek ekinleri yok eder, koyun, sığır, eşek gibi geçim kaynağı olan her şeyi alırlardı.

5 Hayvanları ve çadırlarıyla birlikte çekirge sürüsü gibi gelirlerdi. Adamları, develeri saymak olanaksızdı. Yakıp yıkmak amacıyla toprakları işgal ederlerdi.

6 Midyanlılar İsraili öyle yoksul düşürdüler ki, İsrailliler RABbe yakarmaya başladılar.

7 İsrailliler Midyanlılardan ötürü RABbe yakarınca,

8 RAB onlara bir peygamber gönderdi. peygamber onlara şöyle dedi: ‹‹İsrailin Tanrısı RAB diyor ki, ‹Sizi Mısırdan ben çıkardım, köle olduğunuz ülkeden ben getirdim.

9 Mısırlıların elinden, size baskı yapanların hepsinin elinden sizi ben kurtardım. Onları önünüzden kovdum, topraklarını size verdim.

10 Size dedim ki, Ben Tanrınız RABbim. Topraklarında yaşadığınız Amorluların ilahlarına tapmayın. Ama sözümü dinlemediniz.› ››

11 RABbin meleği gelip Aviezerli Yoaşın Ofra Kentindeki yabanıl fıstık ağacının altında oturdu. Yoaşın oğlu Gidyon, buğdayı Midyanlılardan kurtarmak için üzüm sıkma çukurunda dövüyordu.

12 RABbin meleği ona görünerek, ‹‹Ey yiğit savaşçı, RAB seninledir›› dedi.

13 Gidyon, ‹‹Ey Efendim, eğer RAB bizimleyse bütün bunlar neden başımıza geldi?›› diye karşılık verdi, ‹‹Atalarımız RABbin bizi Mısırdan çıkardığını söylemediler mi? Bize anlattıkları RABbin bütün o harikaları nerede? RAB bizi terk etti, Midyanlıların eline teslim etti.››

14 RAB Gidyona dönüp, ‹‹Kendi gücünle git, İsraili Midyanlıların elinden kurtar›› dedi, ‹‹Seni ben gönderiyorum.››

15 Gidyon, ‹‹Ey Efendim, ben İsraili nasıl kurtarabilirim?›› diye karşılık verdi, ‹‹Ait olduğum boy Manaşşe oymağının en zayıf boyudur. Ben de ailemin en genç adamıyım.››

16 RAB, ‹‹Ben seninle olacağım›› dedi, ‹‹Midyanlıları tek bir adamı yener gibi bozguna uğratacaksın.››

17 Gidyon, ‹‹Benden hoşnutsan, benimle konuşanın sen olduğuna dair bana bir belirti göster›› dedi,

18 ‹‹Lütfen gelip sana adağımı sununcaya, önüne koyuncaya dek buradan ayrılma.›› RAB, ‹‹Sen dönünceye dek kalırım›› diye yanıtladı.

19 Gidyon eve gidip bir oğlak kesti, bir efa undan mayasız pide yaptı. Eti sepete, et suyunu tencereye koydu; bunları getirip yabanıl fıstık ağacının altında meleğe sundu.

20 Tanrının meleği, ‹‹Eti ve mayasız pideleri al, şu kayanın üzerine koy. Et suyunu ise dök›› dedi. Gidyon söyleneni yaptı.

21 RABbin meleği elindeki değneğin ucuyla ete ve mayasız pidelere dokununca kayadan ateş fışkırdı. ateş eti ve mayasız pideleri yakıp kül etti. Sonra RABbin meleği gözden kayboldu.

22 Gidyon, gördüğü kişinin RABbin meleği olduğunu anlayınca, ‹‹Eyvah, Egemen RAB! Meleğinin yüzünü gördüm›› dedi.

23 RAB ona, ‹‹Sana esenlik olsun. Korkma, ölmeyeceksin›› dedi.

24 Gidyon orada RAB için bir sunak yaptı. Sunağa ‹‹Yahve şalom›› adını verdi. Sunak bugün de Aviezerlilerin Ofra Kentinde duruyor.

25 Aynı gece RAB, Gidyona, ‹‹Babanın boğasını, yedi yaşındaki ikinci boğayı al›› dedi, ‹‹Sonra babanın Baal için yaptırdığı sunağı yık. Sunağın yanındaki Aşera putunu kes.

26 Tanrın RAB için bu höyüğün üstünde uygun bir sunak yap. İkinci boğayı al, keseceğin Aşera putunun odunlarıyla yakmalık sunu olarak sun.››

27 Gidyon adamlarından onunu yanına alarak RABbin kendisine buyurduklarını yerine getirdi. Ne var ki, ailesinden ve kent halkından korktuğu için bunu gündüz yerine gece yaptı.

28 Sabah erkenden kalkan kent halkı, Baala ait sunağın yıkıldığını, yanındaki Aşera putunun kesildiğini, ikinci boğanın yeni yapılan sunak üzerinde sunulduğunu gördü.

29 Birbirlerine, ‹‹Bu işi kim yaptı?›› diye sordular. Araştırıp soruşturduktan sonra, bu işi Yoaş oğlu Gidyonun yaptığını anladılar.

30 Bunun üzerine Yoaşa, ‹‹Oğlunu dışarı çıkar›› dediler, ‹‹Ölmesi gerek. Çünkü Baalın sunağını yıktı, yanındaki Aşera putunu kesti.››

31 Yoaş çevresindeki öfkeli kalabalığa, ‹‹Baalı savunmak size mi düştü?›› dedi, ‹‹Siz mi onu kurtaracaksınız? Onu savunan şafak sökmeden ölecek. Baal tanrıysa, bırakın kendini savunsun. Yıkılan sunak onun!››

32 O gün Yoaş, ‹‹Baal kendini savunsun, yıkılan sunak onun sunağıdır›› diyerek Gidyona Yerubbaal adını verdi.

33 Bu arada Midyanlılar, Amalekliler ve öbür doğulu halklar birleşerek Şeria Irmağını geçtiler, gidip Yizreel Vadisinde ordugah kurdular.

34 RABbin Ruhu Gidyonu yönlendirmeye başladı. Gidyon borusunu çalınca Aviezerliler onun çevresinde toplandı.

35 Gidyon bütün Manaşşeye ulaklar göndererek oranın halkını da topladı. Aşer, Zevulun ve Naftaliye de ulaklar gönderdi. Onlar da onu karşılamaya çıktılar.

36 Gidyon Tanrıya şöyle seslendi: ‹‹Söz verdiğin gibi İsraili benim aracılığımla kurtaracağın doğruysa,

37 çiy yalnızca harman yerine koyduğum yün yapağının üzerine düşsün, topraksa kuru kalsın. Böylece, söylediğin gibi İsraili benim aracılığımla kurtaracağını bileceğim.››

38 Ve öyle oldu. Ertesi gün erkenden kalkan Gidyon yapağıyı alıp sıktı. Yapağıdan bir tas dolusu çiy süzüldü.

39 Bunun üzerine Gidyon Tanrıya şöyle seslendi: ‹‹Bana kızma, bir istekte daha bulunmak istiyorum. Yapağıyla bir deneme daha yapmama izin ver. Lütfen bu kez yalnızca yapağı kuru kalsın, topraksa çiyle ıslansın.››

40 Tanrı o gece Gidyon'un dediğini yaptı. Yapağı kuru kaldı, toprağın her yanıysa çiyle kaplandı.

Exploring the Meaning of Judges 6      

Napsal(a) Rev. Julian Duckworth

Judges 6: The Midianites oppress Israel; the call of Gideon.

Chapters 6-8 of Judges tell the story of Gideon, who led the people of Israel against the Midianites. The Lord allowed the Midianites to oppress the children of Israel for seven years, because they had disobeyed His commandments once again. Israel fled to the mountain caves, and Midian starved the Israelites by destroying their crops and taking their livestock. When Israel cried out to the Lord for help, a prophet delivered the Lord’s message that He had always been with them, but they had kept disobeying.

Then the angel of the Lord appeared to Gideon, who was threshing wheat in the winepress to hide this from the Midianites. The angel brought news that he would lead the fight against the Midianites. Gideon was stunned, and replied that his family was the least important in the tribe of Manasseh, and that he was the least in his family. Even so, the Lord assured him would be victorious, because the Lord was with him.

Gideon asked for a sign to be given him, and then went to prepare an offering of food. When he came back, the angel told him to place the meat and unleavened bread upon a rock. When the angel touched it with his staff, fire came up from the rock and burned up the food. The angel then departed.

The Lord told Gideon to break down his father’s altars to Baal, and to build an altar to the Lord on top of it, which he did by night. In the morning, the men of the city discovered what Gideon had done, and demanded that he be killed. But Gideon’s father, Joash, replied that Baal himself would take action, if he were really a god.

The Midianites and their allies gathered for battle, and Gideon called on his tribe of Manasseh, as well as Asher, Zebulun, and Naphtali, to prepare to fight. Before the battle took place though, Gideon asked for another sign from God. He put a woolen fleece on the threshing floor, and if God would use him to save Israel, the fleece would have dew on it, while the ground around it would be dry. And so it was the next morning. Once again, Gideon asked for a sign, this time with dew on the ground, but not on the fleece. And again, this came to pass.

*****

The spiritual meaning of the Midianites is understanding spiritual truths, but leading a life of sensory pleasure anyway, rather than one built on genuine goodness (see Swedenborg’s work, Arcana Caelestia 7602). This is portrayed by the Midianites destroying all the crops which could be made into food, or spiritually, into what is good.

Threshing wheat and pressing wine are very similar processes; threshing wheat frees grain from the beaten husk, and pressing wine squeezes juice from a crushed grape. Both of these activities represent our spiritual determination to do what is good – the wheat for bread – because of the truth we have come to understand – the wine. Gideon’s name, meaning “to break apart”, and this passage are meant to show us that his strongest quality was determination to do good (Divine Providence 227[2]).

Gideon’s claim to be the least important of all demonstrates the place of genuine humility in our spiritual life. Acknowledging that the Lord brings about all good things is a sign of strength, not weakness (see Swedenborg’s work, Heaven and Hell 408).

The spiritual meaning of asking God for a sign – which Gideon did several times – is to confirm the validity of what we intend or understand. Paying attention to our internal state will show us the quality of our inner thoughts if we dare to listen, but ultimately, confirmation comes from the Word (see Swedenborg’s work, True Christian Religion 508[5]). The fire from the rock, which burned the meat, represents the power of love and truth to consume and sustain us.

The fascinating double sign involving the fleece has several layers of spiritual meaning: the threshing floor stands for the ground of our daily life and activity; the fleece, with its warmth and softness, stands for the principle of goodness; and the dew (water) stands for divine influx of truth into us from the Lord. These build the framework of the spiritual meaning. The dewy fleece on the dry ground means that we need to have the Lord’s truth in our mind, so we know how to lead a good life. Then, this needs to be reversed so that we feel the desire to do good, and then apply this in daily life (Arcana Caelestia 3579).

This sign is closely related to the spiritual meaning of the Midianites, the enemy to be overthrown. Simply knowing the Lord’s truths does not guarantee a good life; we must put these truths into practice.
