Joshua 2:6-11

6 But 1she had brought them up to the roof and hidden them in the stalks of flax which she had laid in order on the roof.
7 So the men pursued them on the road to the Jordan to the fords; and as soon as those who were pursuing them had gone out, they shut the gate.
8 Now before they lay down, she came up to them on the roof,
9 and said to the men, "2I know that the LORD has given you the land, and that the 3terror of you has fallen on us, and that all the inhabitants of the land have melted away before * you.
10 "4For we have heard how the LORD dried up the water of the Red * Sea before * you when you came out of Egypt, and 5what you did to the two kings of the Amorites who were beyond the Jordan, to Sihon and Og, whom you utterly destroyed.
11 "When we heard it, 6our hearts melted and no courage remained in any man any longer because * of you; for the 7LORD your God, He is God in heaven above * and on earth beneath *.
