1 Ειπε δε ο Δαβιδ εν τη καρδια αυτου, Θελω βεβαιως απολεσθη μιαν ημεραν δια χειρος του Σαουλ· δεν ειναι τι καλητερον δι' εμε, παρα να διασωθω ταχεως εις την γην των Φιλισταιων· τοτε απ' εμου ο Σαουλ απελπισθεις, θελει παραιτηθη απο του να με ζητη πλεον εις παντα τα ορια του Ισραηλ· ουτω θελω σωθη εκ της χειρος αυτου.

2 Και εσηκωθη ο Δαβιδ και διεβη, αυτος και οι εξακοσιοι ανδρες οι μετ' αυτου, προς τον Αγχους υιον του Μαωχ, βασιλεα της Γαθ.

3 Και εκαθησεν ο Δαβιδ μετα του Αγχους εν Γαθ, αυτος και οι ανδρες αυτου, εκαστος μετα της οικογενειας αυτου, και ο Δαβιδ μετα των δυο γυναικων αυτου, Αχινοαμ της Ιεζραηλιτιδος και Αβιγαιας της Καρμηλιτιδος γυναικος του Ναβαλ.

4 Ανηγγελθη δε προς τον Σαουλ οτι εφυγεν ο Δαβιδ εις Γαθ. οθεν δεν εζητησε πλεον αυτον.

5 Και ειπεν ο Δαβιδ προς τον Αγχους, Εαν ευρηκα τωρα χαριν εις τους οφθαλμους σου, ας μοι δοθη τοπος εις τινα των πολεων της εξοχης, δια να καθησω εκει· διοτι πως να καθηται ο δουλος σου μετα σου εν τη βασιλευουση πολει;

6 Και εδωκεν εις αυτον ο Αγχους την Σικλαγ κατ' εκεινην την ημεραν· δια τουτο η Σικλαγ εμεινεν εις τους βασιλεις του Ιουδα μεχρι της σημερον.

7 Ο δε αριθμος των ημερων, τας οποιας ο Δαβιδ εκαθησεν εν τη γη των Φιλισταιων, εγεινεν εν ετος και τεσσαρες μηνες.

8 Ανεβαινε δε ο Δαβιδ και οι ανδρες αυτου και εκαμνον εισδρομας εις τους Γεσσουριτας και Γεζραιους και Αμαληκιτας· διοτι ουτοι ησαν εκ παλαιου οι κατοικοι της γης, κατα την εισοδον Σουρ και εως της γης Αιγυπτου.

9 Και εκτυπα ο Δαβιδ την γην και δεν αφινε ζωντα ουτε ανδρα ουτε γυναικα· και ελαμβανε προβατα και βοας και ονους και καμηλους και ενδυματα· και επιστρεφων ηρχετο προς τον Αγχους.

10 Και ελεγεν ο Αγχους προς τον Δαβιδ, που εκαμετε εισδρομην σημερον; Και απεκρινετο ο Δαβιδ, προς το μεσημβρινον του Ιουδα και προς το μεσημβρινον των Ιεραμεηλιτων και προς το μεσημβρινον των Κεναιων.

11 Και ουτε ανδρα ουτε γυναικα δεν αφινε ζωντα ο Δαβιδ, δια να φερη ειδησιν εις Γαθ, λεγων, Μηποτε αναγγειλωσιν εναντιον ημων, λεγοντες, Ουτω καμνει ο Δαβιδ και τοιουτος ειναι ο τροπος αυτου, καθ' ολας τας ημερας οσας καθηται εν τη γη των Φιλισταιων.

12 Και επιστευεν ο Αγχους τον Δαβιδ, λεγων, Αυτος εκαμεν εαυτον διολου μισητον εις τον λαον αυτου τον Ισραηλ· δια τουτο θελει εισθαι δουλος εις εμε παντοτε.

Exploring the Meaning of Joshua 13      

Joshua 13: The start of the tribal territory allocations.

Now that Israel had conquered the land of Canaan, the Lord commanded Joshua to divide the land between the twelve tribes. The next seven chapters tell how the the land of Canaan was divided (see Swedenborg’s work, Arcana Caelestia 1413, to read more about the spiritual meaning).

Chapter 13 deals with the territories given to the tribes of Reuben, Gad and one half of Manasseh, all of which are on the other side of the river Jordan. Reuben was given the southern lands; Gad was given the extensive middle region, much of which is an area called Gilead; and half the tribe of Manasseh received the northern land which is on the other side of the Jordan.

It is also worth noting that the first few verses say much of the land remained to be conquered. However, at the end of chapter 11, we read that Joshua took the whole land as the Lord had commanded Moses.

This may seem contradictory, but spiritually it fits very well. In our regeneration, we aim to conquer our self-centred nature, and allow the Lord to rule us with his truth. This is spiritually ‘conquering the whole land’. But even so, our natural thoughts and desires sometimes rise up to trouble us, and these times are like the parts of the land that remain to be conquered. This is why we must recognize our complete dependence on the Lord (Arcana Caelestia 8326).

The Lord giving land as inheritance to each of the twelve tribes represents the way that He gives us our spiritual life. As we do the work of spiritual ‘conquering’ - living by our purpose to serve the Lord - we feel more and more that we can use our understanding of God and His Word in our actions every day.

The twelve tribes stand for the whole spectrum of what spiritual life involves, and each tribe relates to a specific quality of our spiritual living (Arcana Caelestia 3858). For example, we need to be discerning, positive, respectful of others, and so on. Each tribe has a sizeable area of the land, and is part of the integrity of the whole nation.

The territories given to Reuben, Gad and half of Manasseh are not part of Canaan, but they are linked to it. These areas represent our outward life: the way we work, live, rest, and relate with other people. This is the ‘casing’ of our spiritual life, and it is essential.

The tribe of Reuben – the eldest son of Jacob – stands for our initial need to see the truths from the Lord in the Word. By ‘seeing’ we mean meeting them, looking carefully, being attentive, coming to understand what they ask of us, and realising how important they are. It is not a vague impression that the Lord’s teachings are important, but a real first step for us (Arcana Caelestia 3866).

The tribe of Gad stands for our ability to see that knowledge and truth need to be used to perform good works. Gad’s name means ‘a troop,’ calling to mind soldiers marching in formation to go and sort things out properly. This is something we can apply to ourselves and to the world around us. We just need to watch that it doesn’t get too heavy-handed (See Swedenborg’s work, Apocalypse Explained 435[7]).

The tribe of Manasseh represents the spiritual good which supports our will to live a life which is just, fair and honourable because it is based on God. In fact, Manasseh – which means ‘forgetfulness’ – stands for our need to remember that ‘my will’ is really ‘the Lord’s will for me’. Our will needs to be focused on outward life and also inwardly open to the Lord, which is why half of Manasseh has land beyond the Jordan and half has land within Canaan (Arcana Caelestia 5353).
