Prophets, Joshua, 10:27: And it came to pass at the time of the going down of the sun, that Joshua commanded, and they took them down off the trees, and cast them into the cave wherein they had hidden themselves, and laid great stones on the mouth of the cave, unto this very day.
Question: Once the kings were strangled, Joshua commanded them to hang them on five trees and leave them there until evening. By sunset, they removed them, cast them into the cave in which they were hiding, and laid large stones at the entrance to the cave.
Why did they hang them on the trees after they had already killed them?
Answer: The tree is the Tree of Life, which represents the spiritual laws of nature. A person, at the moment some kind of a king, represents a certain egoism that is hung on a tree. This is its correction.
There is no question about any revenge or any other calculations. It only says that egoism, when it is corrected in this way, is attached to the general Tree of Life and enters into the system of correction. Therefore, all the “kings” (egoistic desires) are eventually corrected and connected to the general system in the correct form.
Laying stones at the entrance of the cave so that this will never happen again symbolizes the final correction. It is no longer possible to work with buried desires since they have already been corrected.
It is written that this burial was left “unto this very day,” which means, until the end of days. At the end of days, it will become clear that all this was only a correction.
Question: Still, what does “unto this very day” mean? Is it in order for us to see this?
Answer: In order for us to understand by what they are guided. These are not years or millennia, but degrees. On our degrees, we too should be guided by this.
