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.

66. There are in general four differing styles in the Word. The FIRST is that of the Most Ancient Church. In their mode of expression, when they mentioned earthly and worldly things their thought was of the spiritual and celestial things which these represented. For this reason they not only expressed themselves by means of representatives but also, to bring them to life, they arranged them in quasi-historical sequence, and this gave them extremely great delight. This style was meant when Hannah Prophesied and said,

Speak that which is high, that which is high; let that which is ancient come from your mouth. 1 Samuel 2:3.

In David those representatives are called,

Dark sayings from antiquity. Psalms 78:2-4.

From the descendants of the Most Ancient Church Moses came into possession of these stories concerning Creation, concerning the Garden of Eden, and of the event, down to the time of Abram.

[2] The SECOND is the historical style, which appears in the books of Moses to describe the time of Abram onwards, and in the books of Joshua, the Judges, Samuel, and the Kings. In these books the facts of history are exactly as set out in the sense of the letter, yet every single one contains something entirely different in the internal sense, which in the Lord's Divine mercy will be dealt with in proper order later on. The THIRD is the prophetical style, the offspring of the style of the Most Ancient Church, a style which they revered. However it is not continuous, nor does it take quasi-historical form as the most ancient style did. Instead it is diffuse and scarcely ever intelligible except in the internal sense where very deep arcana reside, linked together and following in perfect order. These arcana focus on the external man and the internal, the many states of the Church, heaven itself, and inmostly on the Lord. The FOURTH style is that of the Psalms of David, which varies between the prophetical style and ordinary speech. There in the personage of David asking the internal sense deals with the Lord.

(References: 1 Kings 1:1; 1 Samuel 1:1; 2 Kings 1:1; 2 Samuel 1:1; Joshua 1:1; Judges 1:1; Psalms 1:1)
