1 Ke kaloku oonyana bakaSirayeli benza ubumenemene entweni esingelwe phantsi. UAkan, unyana kaKarmi, unyana kaZabhedi, unyana kaZera, wesizwe sakwaYuda, wathabatha entweni esingelwe phantsi. Wavutha ke umsindo kaYehova konyana bakaSirayeli.

2 UYoshuwa wasusa amadoda eYeriko ukuba aya eAyi, engaseBhetaven, ngasempumalanga eBheteli, wathi kuwo, Nyukani nilihlole ilizwe. Anyuka ke amadoda lawo, ayihlola iAyi.

3 Abuyela kuYoshuwa, athi kuye, Mabangenyuki bonke abantu; makunyuke amadoda amayela kumawaka amabini, nokuba ngamadoda amayela kumawaka amathathu, ayichithe iAyi. Musa ukubadinisa bonke abantu ngokubasa khona; kuba abaa bantu bambalwa.

4 Kwenyuka ke kwaya khona kubantu amadoda amayela kumawaka amathathu; esuka asaba phambi kwamadoda aseAyi.

5 Amadoda aseAyi abulala kuwo Amadoda amayela kumashumi amathathu anamathandathu, awasukela phambi kwesango, kwesa eShebharim, awabulala ethambekeni. Yanyibilika intliziyo yabantu, yaba ngamanzi.

6 Wazikrazula ke uYoshuwa iingubo zakhe, wawa ngobuso emhlabeni phambi kwetyeya kaYehova kwada kwahlwa, yena namadoda amakhulu akwaSirayeli, bagalela uthuli phezu kweentloko.

7 Wathi uYoshuwa, Awu, Nkosi, Yehova, yini na ukuba aba bantu ubaweze iYordan, usinikele esandleni sama-Amori ukuba asibhubhise? Akwaba kanye bekukholekile kuthi ukuhlala phesheya kweYordan!

8 Camagu, Nkosi yam, Ndiya kuthini na emveni kokuba amaSirayeli ezinikele ikhosi iintshaba zawo!

9 Aya kuva amaKanan, nabemi bonke belizwe, asirhawule, alicime igama lethu ehlabathini. Wenze ntoni na ke kwigama lakho elikhulu?

10 Wathi uYehova kuYoshuwa, Vuka! Uweleni na ngobuso?

11 Onile amaSirayeli; ewe, awugqithile umnqophiso wam endawawisela umthetho ngawo; ewe, athabathile entweni esingelwe phantsi; ebile, akhanyele, ewe, ayibeke ezimpahleni zawo.

12 Ababa nako ke oonyana bakaSirayeli ukuma phambi kweentshaba zabo, bazinikela ikhosi iintshaba zabo, ngokuba bebeyinto esingelwe phantsi. Andiyi kuphinda ndibe nani, ukuba ayithange itshatyalaliswe into esingelwe phantsi phakathi kwenu.

13 Vuka, ubangcwalise abantu, uthi, Zingcwaliseleni ingomso; ngokuba utsho uYehova uThixo kaSirayeli, ukuthi, Kukho nto isingelwe phantsi phakathi kwakho, Sirayeli; akunako ukuma phambi kweentshaba zakho, nide niyisuse into esingelwe phantsi phakathi kwenu.

14 Ize nisindele kusasa ngokwezizwe zenu, isizwe athe wacisha sona uYehova sisondele ngokwezindlu zaso; indlu athe wacisha yona uYehova isondele ngokwamadoda ayo;

15 ithi leyo kucishwe yona inento esingelwe phantsi, itshiswe ngomlilo, nezinto zonke enazo; ngokuba iwugqithile umnqophiso kaYehova, nangokuba yenze ubudenge kwaSirayeli.

16 Wavuka uYoshuwa kusasa ngengomso, wawasondeza amaSirayeli ngokwezizwe zawo, kwacishwa isizwe sakwaYuda;

17 wayisondeza imizalwane yakwaYuda, kwacishwa umzalwane wakwaZera; wawusondeza umzalwane wakwaZera ngokwamadoda awo, kwacishwa uZabhedi;

18 wayisondeza indlu yakhe ngokwamadoda ayo, kwacishwa uAkan, unyana kaKarmi, unyana kaZabhedi, unyana kaZera, wesizwe sakwaYuda.

19 Wathi uYoshuwa kuAkan, Nyana wam, mzukisi uYehova uThixo kaSirayeli, umdumise; khawundixelele into oyenzileyo; musa ukukhanyela kum.

20 UAkan wamphendula uYoshuwa, wathi, Okunene ndonile kuYehova uThixo kaSirayeli, ndenjenje, ndenjenje:

21 ndabona emaxhobeni ingubo enkulu entle yaseShinare yanye, neeshekele zesilivere zaba makhulu mabini, nesinqumka segolide sasinye esiziishekele ezimashumi mahlanu ubunzima baso; ndazinqwenela, ndazithabatha; nanzo zimbelwe emhlabeni phakathi kwentente yam, isilivere ingaphantsi.

22 Wathuma uYoshuwa abathunywa; bagidima baya ententeni; nanzo zimbelwe ententeni yakhe, isilivere ingaphantsi.

23 Bazithabatha phantsi kwentente, bazisa kuYoshuwa, nakoonyana bakaSirayeli bonke; bazikhuphela phambi koYehova.

24 UYoshuwa enamaSirayeli onke, wamthabatha uAkan unyana kaZera, nesilivere, nengubo enkulu, nesinqumka segolide, noonyana bakhe, neentombi zakhe, neenkomo zakhe, namaesile akhe, nempahla yakhe emfutshane, nentente yakhe, nezinto zonke anazo, bazisa entilini yeAkore.

25 Wathi uYoshuwa, Azi, usihlisele ishwangusha! Namhla uYehova uya kukuhlisela ishwangusha. Onke amaSirayeli amxuluba ke ngamatye, azitshisa ezo nto ngomlilo.

26 Aphosa amatye phezu kwazo. Amisa phezu kwakhe imfumba enkulu yamatye, ekhoyo unanamhla. Wabuya ke uYehova ekuvutheni komsindo wakhe. Kungoko kwathiwa igama laloo ndawo yintili yeAkore unanamhla.

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)
