Josué 2 →

1 Y aconteció después de la muerte de Moisés siervo del SEÑOR, que El SEÑOR habló a Josué hijo de Nun, criado de Moisés, diciendo:

2 Mi siervo Moisés ha muerto; levántate pues ahora, y pasa este Jordán, tú y todo este pueblo, a la tierra que yo les doy a los hijos de Israel.

3 Yo os he entregado, como lo había dicho a Moisés, todo lugar que pisare la planta de vuestro pie.

4 Desde el desierto y este Líbano hasta el gran río Eufrates, toda la tierra de los heteos hasta el gran mar del poniente del sol, será vuestro término.

5 Nadie te podrá hacer frente en todos los días de tu vida; como yo fui con Moisés, seré contigo; no te dejaré, ni te desampararé.

6 Esfuérzate y sé valiente; porque tú harás heredar a este pueblo la tierra por herencia, de la cual juré a sus padres que la daría a ellos.

7 Solamente te esfuerces, y seas muy valiente, para que guardes y hagas conforme a toda mi ley, que Moisés, mi siervo, te mandó; que no te apartes de ella ni a diestra ni a siniestra, para que seas prosperado en todas las cosas que emprendieres.

8 El libro de esta ley nunca se apartará de tu boca; antes de día y de noche meditarás en él, para que guardes y hagas conforme a todo lo que en él está escrito; porque entonces harás prosperar tu camino, y entonces todo lo entenderás.

9 Mira que te mando que te esfuerces, y seas valiente; no temas ni desmayes, porque yo el SEÑOR tu Dios soy contigo en donde quiera que fueres.

10 Y Josué mandó a los oficiales del pueblo, diciendo:

11 Pasad por en medio del campamento, y mandad al pueblo, diciendo: Preveníos de comida; porque dentro de tres días pasaréis el Jordán, para que entréis a heredar la tierra que el SEÑOR vuestro Dios os da para que la heredéis.

12 También habló Josué a los rubenitas y gaditas, y a la media tribu de Manasés, diciendo:

13 Acordaos de la palabra que Moisés, siervo del SEÑOR, os mandó diciendo: El SEÑOR vuestro Dios os ha dado reposo, y os ha dado esta tierra.

14 Vuestras mujeres y vuestros niños y vuestras bestias, quedarán en la tierra que Moisés os ha dado de este lado del Jordán; mas vosotros, todos los valientes de proeza, pasaréis armados delante de vuestros hermanos, y les ayudaréis;

15 hasta tanto que el SEÑOR haya dado reposo a vuestros hermanos como a vosotros, y que ellos también hereden la tierra que el SEÑOR vuestro Dios les da; y después volveréis vosotros a la tierra de vuestra herencia, y la heredaréis; la cual Moisés, siervo del SEÑOR, os ha dado, de este lado del Jordán hacia donde nace el sol.

16 Entonces ellos respondieron a Josué, diciendo: Nosotros haremos todas las cosas que nos has mandado, e iremos adonde quiera que nos enviares.

17 De la manera que escuchábamos a Moisés en todas las cosas, así te escucharemos a ti; solamente el SEÑOR tu Dios esté contigo, como estuvo con Moisés.

18 Cualquiera que fuere rebelde a tu mandamiento, y que no oyere tus palabras en todas las cosas que le mandares, que muera; solamente que te esfuerces, y seas valiente.

6335. 'And Jacob called his sons' means organizing the truths of faith and the forms of the good of love in the natural. This is clear from the meaning of 'calling' as arranging into order, for the reason why they were called together was so that the truths of faith and the forms of the good of charity might be set forth in that organized arrangement; and from the representation of 'Jacob' and 'his sons' as the truths of faith and the forms of the good of love in the natural, 'Jacob' being those truths and forms of good in general, see 3509, 3525, 3546, 3659, 3669, 3677, 3775, 3829, 4234, 4273, 4777, 5506, 5533, 5535, 6001, 6236, and 'his sons', or the tribes named after them, those truths and forms of good in particular, 3858, 3926, 3939, 4060. With regard to this organization of the truths of faith and the forms of the good of love that is meant here and is set forth in the internal sense of this chapter, it should be recognized that the twelve tribes of Israel represented in general all truths and forms of good in their entirety, thus all the truths and forms of good which come forth from the Lord, therefore those which exist in heaven and from which heaven exists. And since all in general are represented, so is each one specifically; for classes in general include all members specifically, just as general wholes do their individual parts.

(References: Arcana Coelestia 4337)


[2] Forms of good and the truths deriving from them are what determine the varying intensity of light in heaven; and that varying intensity of light is what determines the varying states of intelligence and wisdom. This was how it came about that light glittered and flashed through the Urim and Thummim, doing so in varying ways in keeping with the state of the matter about which questions were being asked. This took place because the twelve tribes, by whom all truths and forms of good in general were meant, were designated in the breastplate or Urim and Thummim; for each precious stone stood for one particular tribe. The reason why they were precious stones was that spiritual and celestial truths are meant by them, 114, 3720, and good is meant by the 'gold' into which they had been set, 1 113, 1551, 1552, 5658. This arcanum is what was meant by the Urim and Thummim.

(References: Arcana Coelestia 1551-1552)


[3] The fact that the twelve tribes meant such things is evident from places in the Word where they are mentioned by name, in particular from the inheritances of the tribes in the land of Canaan, which are dealt with in Joshua, and from their inheritances in the Lord's kingdom, which are dealt with in Ezekiel - in the final chapters, in which a new land, a new Jerusalem, and a new temple are described - and also in Revelation 7:4-8. That the twelve tribes meant such things is also evident from the order in which they were arranged when they pitched camp in the wilderness, an order which was such that it represented truths and forms of good in their right and proper order. This was the origin of the prophetic utterance made by Balaam,

When Balaam lifted up his eyes and saw Israel dwelling according to their tribes, the Spirit of God came upon him and he delivered an utterance, and said, How good are your tabernacles, O Jacob; your dwelling-places, O Israel! Like valleys they are planted, like gardens beside a river, like aloes Jehovah has planted, like cedars beside the waters. Numbers 24:2-3, 5-6.

See also what has been shown regarding the tribes and organized arrangements of them in 2129, 3858, 3862, 3926, 3979, 4060, 4603.
