Joshua 2:1-24

And Joshua
<03091>
the son
<01121>
of Nun
<05126>
sent
<07971> (8799)
out of Shittim
<07851>
two
<08147>
men
<0582>
to spy
<07270> (8764)
secretly
<02791>_,
saying
<0559> (8800)_,
Go
<03212> (8798)
view
<07200> (8798)
the land
<0776>_,
even Jericho
<03405>_.
And they went
<03212> (8799)_,
and came
<0935> (8799)
into an harlot's
<02181> (8802)
house
<0802> <01004>_,
named
<08034>
Rahab
<07343>_,
and lodged
<07901> (8799)
there. {sent: or, had sent} {lodged: Heb. lay}
And it was told
<0559> (8735)
the king
<04428>
of Jericho
<03405>_,
saying
<0559> (8800)_,
Behold, there came
<0935> (8804)
men
<0582>
in hither to night
<03915>
of the children
<01121>
of Israel
<03478>
to search out
<02658> (8800)
the country
<0776>_.
And the king
<04428>
of Jericho
<03405>
sent
<07971> (8799)
unto Rahab
<07343>_,
saying
<0559> (8800)_,
Bring forth
<03318> (8685)
the men
<0582>
that are come
<0935> (8802)
to thee, which are entered
<0935> (8804)
into thine house
<01004>_:
for they be come
<0935> (8804)
to search out
<02658> (8800)
all the country
<0776>_.
And the woman
<0802>
took
<03947> (8799)
the two
<08147>
men
<0582>_,
and hid
<06845> (8799)
them, and said
<0559> (8799)
thus, There came
<0935> (8804)
men
<0582>
unto me, but I wist
<03045> (8804)
not whence
<0370>
they [were]:
And it came to pass [about the time] of shutting
<05462> (8800)
of the gate
<08179>_,
when it was dark
<02822>_,
that the men
<0582>
went out
<03318> (8804)_:
whither the men
<0582>
went
<01980> (8804)
I wot
<03045> (8804)
not: pursue
<07291> (8798)
after
<0310>
them quickly
<04118>_;
for ye shall overtake
<05381> (8686)
them.
But she had brought them up
<05927> (8689)
to the roof
<01406>
of the house, and hid
<02934> (8799)
them with the stalks
<06086>
of flax
<06593>_,
which she had laid in order
<06186> (8803)
upon the roof
<01406>_.
And the men
<0582>
pursued
<07291> (8804)
after
<0310>
them the way
<01870>
to Jordan
<03383>
unto the fords
<04569>_:
and as soon as they which pursued
<07291> (8802)
after
<0310>
them were gone out
<03318> (8804)_,
they shut
<05462> (8804)
the gate
<08179>_.
And before they were laid down
<07901> (8799)_,
she came up
<05927> (8804)
unto them upon the roof
<01406>_;
And she said
<0559> (8799)
unto the men
<0582>_,
I know
<03045> (8804)
that the LORD
<03068>
hath given
<05414> (8804)
you the land
<0776>_,
and that your terror
<0367>
is fallen
<05307> (8804)
upon us, and that all the inhabitants
<03427> (8802)
of the land
<0776>
faint
<04127> (8738)
because
<06440>
of you. {faint: Heb. melt}
For we have heard
<08085> (8804)
how the LORD
<03068>
dried up
<03001> (8689)
the water
<04325>
of the Red
<05488>
sea
<03220>
for you
<06440>_,
when ye came out
<03318> (8800)
of Egypt
<04714>_;
and what ye did
<06213> (8804)
unto the two
<08147>
kings
<04428>
of the Amorites
<0567>_,
that [were] on the other side
<05676>
Jordan
<03383>_,
Sihon
<05511>
and Og
<05747>_,
whom ye utterly destroyed
<02763> (8689)_.
And as soon as we had heard
<08085> (8799)
[these things], our hearts
<03824>
did melt
<04549> (8735)_,
neither did there remain
<06965> (8804)
any more courage
<07307>
in any man
<0376>_,
because
<06440>
of you: for the LORD
<03068>
your God
<0430>_,
he [is] God
<0430>
in heaven
<08064>
above
<04605>_,
and in earth
<0776>
beneath. {did there...: Heb. rose up}
Now therefore, I pray you, swear
<07650> (8734)
unto me by the LORD
<03068>_,
since
<03588>
I have shewed
<06213> (8804)
you kindness
<02617>_,
that ye will also shew
<06213> (8804)
kindness
<02617>
unto my father's
<01>
house
<01004>_,
and give
<05414> (8804)
me a true
<0571>
token
<0226>_:
And [that] ye will save alive
<02421> (8689)
my father
<01>_,
and my mother
<0517>_,
and my brethren
<0251>_,
and my sisters
<0269>_,
and all that they have, and deliver
<05337> (8689)
our lives
<05315>
from death
<04194>_.
And the men
<0582>
answered
<0559> (8799)
her, Our life
<05315>
for yours
<04191> (8800)_,
if ye utter
<05046> (8686)
not this our business
<01697>_.
And it shall be, when the LORD
<03068>
hath given
<05414> (8800)
us the land
<0776>_,
that we will deal
<06213> (8804)
kindly
<02617>
and truly
<0571>
with thee. {for...: Heb. instead of you to die}
Then she let them down
<03381> (8686)
by a cord
<02256>
through
<01157>
the window
<02474>_:
for her house
<01004>
[was] upon the town
<07023>
wall
<02346>_,
and she dwelt
<03427> (8802)
upon the wall
<02346>_.
And she said
<0559> (8799)
unto them, Get
<03212> (8798)
you to the mountain
<02022>_,
lest the pursuers
<07291> (8802)
meet
<06293> (8799)
you; and hide
<02247> (8738)
yourselves there three
<07969>
days
<03117>_,
until the pursuers
<07291> (8802)
be returned
<07725> (8800)_:
and afterward
<0310>
may ye go
<03212> (8799)
your way
<01870>_.
And the men
<0582>
said
<0559> (8799)
unto her, We [will be] blameless
<05355>
of this thine oath
<07621>
which thou hast made us swear
<07650> (8689)_.
Behold, [when] we come
<0935> (8802)
into the land
<0776>_,
thou shalt bind
<07194> (8799)
this line
<08615>
of scarlet
<08144>
thread
<02339>
in the window
<02474>
which thou didst let us down by
<03381> (8689)_:
and thou shalt bring
<0622> (8799)
thy father
<01>_,
and thy mother
<0517>_,
and thy brethren
<0251>_,
and all thy father's
<01>
household
<01004>_,
home
<01004>
unto thee. {bring: Heb. gather}
And it shall be, [that] whosoever
<0834>
shall go out
<03318> (8799)
of the doors
<01817>
of thy house
<01004>
into the street
<02351>_,
his blood
<01818>
[shall be] upon his head
<07218>_,
and we [will be] guiltless
<05355>_:
and whosoever shall be with thee in the house
<01004>_,
his blood
<01818>
[shall be] on our head
<07218>_,
if [any] hand
<03027>
be upon him.
And if thou utter
<05046> (8686)
this our business
<01697>_,
then we will be quit
<05355>
of thine oath
<07621>
which thou hast made us to swear
<07650> (8689)_.
And she said
<0559> (8799)_,
According unto your words
<01697>_,
so [be] it. And she sent them away
<07971> (8762)_,
and they departed
<03212> (8799)_:
and she bound
<07194> (8799)
the scarlet
<08144>
line
<08615>
in the window
<02474>_.
And they went
<03212> (8799)_,
and came
<0935> (8799)
unto the mountain
<02022>_,
and abode
<03427> (8799)
there three
<07969>
days
<03117>_,
until the pursuers
<07291> (8802)
were returned
<07725> (8804)_:
and the pursuers
<07291> (8802)
sought
<01245> (8762)
[them] throughout all the way
<01870>_,
but found
<04672> (8804)
[them] not.
So the two
<08147>
men
<0582>
returned
<07725> (8799)_,
and descended
<03381> (8799)
from the mountain
<02022>_,
and passed over
<05674> (8799)_,
and came
<0935> (8799)
to Joshua
<03091>
the son
<01121>
of Nun
<05126>_,
and told
<05608> (8762)
him all [things] that befell
<04672> (8802)
them:
And they said
<0559> (8799)
unto Joshua
<03091>_,
Truly
<03588>
the LORD
<03068>
hath delivered
<05414> (8804)
into our hands
<03027>
all the land
<0776>_;
for even all the inhabitants
<03427> (8802)
of the country
<0776>
do faint
<04127> (8738)
because
<06440>
of us. {faint: Heb. melt}
