Joshua said to the two men1 who had spied out2 the land, "Go into the prostitute's house and bring her out and all who belong to her, in accordance with your oath to her.3"
So the young men who had done the spying went in and brought out Rahab, her father and mother and brothers and all who belonged to her.4 They brought out her entire family and put them in a place outside the camp of Israel.
Then they burned the whole city5 and everything in it, but they put the silver and gold and the articles of bronze and iron6 into the treasury of the LORD's house.725
But Joshua spared8 Rahab the prostitute,9 with her family and all who belonged to her, because she hid the men Joshua had sent as spies to Jericho10--and she lives among the Israelites to this day.
At that time Joshua pronounced this solemn oath:11 "Cursed12 before the LORD is the man who undertakes to rebuild this city, Jericho: "At the cost of his firstborn son will he lay its foundations; at the cost of his youngest will he set up its gates."1327
So the LORD was with Joshua,14 and his fame spread15 throughout the land.
