\\INTRODUCTION TO JOSHUA 2\\

This chapter gives an account of the spies sent by Joshua to Jericho,
and of their entrance into the house of Rahab, who hid them from the
king's messengers, \\#Jos 2:1-7\\; of the relation she gave them of the
fear and dread of Israel, which were fallen upon the Canaanites,
\\#Jos 2:8-11\\; and of the request she made to them, to save her and her
father's house, when the city should be taken, and to have a sure sign
of it given her, \\#Jos 2:12,13\\; which the spies solemnly promised, and
gave her a sign of it, with a charge not to discover the matter to any,
\\#Jos 2:14-20\\; and being let down by a cord through the window of her
house, they made their escape to a mountain, where they lay three days,
and then returned to Joshua, and made their report, \\#Jos 2:21-24\\.
