Joshua 6:22-25

Context
6:22 Joshua told the two men who had spied on the land, “Enter the prostitute’s house 1  and bring out the woman and all who belong to her as you promised her.” 2  6:23 So the young spies went and brought out Rahab, her father, mother, brothers, and all who belonged to her. They brought out her whole family and took them to a place outside 3  the Israelite camp. 6:24 But they burned 4  the city and all that was in it, except for the silver, gold, and bronze and iron items they put in the treasury of the Lord’s house. 5  6:25 Yet Joshua spared 6  Rahab the prostitute, her father’s family, 7  and all who belonged to her. She lives in Israel 8  to this very day because she hid the messengers Joshua sent to spy on Jericho. 9 

1 tn Heb “the house of the woman, the prostitute.”

2 tn Heb “and bring out from there the woman and all who belong to her as you swore on oath to her.”

3 tn Or “placed them outside.”

4 tn The Hebrew text adds “with fire.”

5 tn Heb “the treasury of the house of the Lord.” Technically the Lord did not have a “house” yet, so perhaps this refers to the tabernacle using later terminology.

6 tn Heb “kept alive.”

7 tn Heb the house of her father.”

8 tn Or “among the Israelites”; Heb “in the midst of Israel.”
