Joshua 2

NAS 1 Then Joshua the son of Nun sent two men as spies secretly from Shittim, saying, "Go, view the land, especially Jericho." So they went and came into the house of a harlot whose name was Rahab, and lodged there. NIV 1 Then Joshua son of Nun secretly sent two spies from Shittim. “Go, look over the land,” he said, “especially Jericho.” So they went and entered the house of a prostitute named Rahab and stayed there. NAS 2 It was told the king of Jericho, saying, "Behold, men from the sons of Israel have come here tonight to search out the land." NIV 2 The king of Jericho was told, “Look, some of the Israelites have come here tonight to spy out the land.” NAS 3 And the king of Jericho sent word to Rahab, saying, "Bring out the men who have come to you, who have entered your house, for they have come to search out all the land." NIV 3 So the king of Jericho sent this message to Rahab: “Bring out the men who came to you and entered your house, because they have come to spy out the whole land.” NAS 4 But the woman had taken the two men and hidden them, and she said, "Yes, the men came to me, but I did not know where they were from. NIV 4 But the woman had taken the two men and hidden them. She said, “Yes, the men came to me, but I did not know where they had come from. NAS 5 "It came about when it was time to shut the gate at dark, that the men went out; I do not know where the men went. Pursue them quickly, for you will overtake them." NIV 5 At dusk, when it was time to close the city gate, they left. I don’t know which way they went. Go after them quickly. You may catch up with them.” NAS 6 But she had brought them up to the roof and hidden them in the stalks of flax which she had laid in order on the roof. NIV 6 (But she had taken them up to the roof and hidden them under the stalks of flax she had laid out on the roof.) NAS 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. NIV 7 So the men set out in pursuit of the spies on the road that leads to the fords of the Jordan, and as soon as the pursuers had gone out, the gate was shut. NAS 8 Now before they lay down, she came up to them on the roof, NIV 8 Before the spies lay down for the night, she went up on the roof NAS 9 and said to the men, "I know that the LORD has given you the land, and that the terror of you has fallen on us, and that all the inhabitants of the land have melted away before you. NIV 9 and said to them, “I know that the LORD has given you this land and that a great fear of you has fallen on us, so that all who live in this country are melting in fear because of you. NAS 10 "For we have heard how the LORD dried up the water of the Red Sea before you when you came out of Egypt, and what you did to the two kings of the Amorites who were beyond the Jordan, to Sihon and Og, whom you utterly destroyed. NIV 10 We have heard how the LORD dried up the water of the Red Sea for you when you came out of Egypt, and what you did to Sihon and Og, the two kings of the Amorites east of the Jordan, whom you completely destroyed. NAS 11 "When we heard it, our hearts melted and no courage remained in any man any longer because of you; for the LORD your God, He is God in heaven above and on earth beneath . NIV 11 When we heard of it, our hearts melted in fear and everyone’s courage failed because of you, for the LORD your God is God in heaven above and on the earth below. NAS 12 "Now therefore, please swear to me by the LORD , since I have dealt kindly with you, that you also will deal kindly with my father's household, and give me a pledge of truth, NIV 12 “Now then, please swear to me by the LORD that you will show kindness to my family, because I have shown kindness to you. Give me a sure sign NAS 13 and spare my father and my mother and my brothers and my sisters, with all who belong to them, and deliver our lives from death." NIV 13 that you will spare the lives of my father and mother, my brothers and sisters, and all who belong to them—and that you will save us from death.” NAS 14 So the men said to her, "Our life for yours if you do not tell this business of ours; and it shall come about when the LORD gives us the land that we will deal kindly and faithfully with you." NIV 14 “Our lives for your lives!” the men assured her. “If you don’t tell what we are doing, we will treat you kindly and faithfully when the LORD gives us the land.” NAS 15 Then she let them down by a rope through the window, for her house was on the city wall, so that she was living on the wall. NIV 15 So she let them down by a rope through the window, for the house she lived in was part of the city wall. NAS 16 She said to them, "Go to the hill country, so that the pursuers will not happen upon you, and hide yourselves there for three days until the pursuers return. Then afterward you may go on your way." NIV 16 She said to them, “Go to the hills so the pursuers will not find you. Hide yourselves there three days until they return, and then go on your way.” NAS 17 The men said to her, "We shall be free from this oath to you which you have made us swear, NIV 17 Now the men had said to her, “This oath you made us swear will not be binding on us NAS 18 unless, when we come into the land, you tie this cord of scarlet thread in the window through which you let us down, and gather to yourself into the house your father and your mother and your brothers and all your father's household. NIV 18 unless, when we enter the land, you have tied this scarlet cord in the window through which you let us down, and unless you have brought your father and mother, your brothers and all your family into your house. NAS 19 "It shall come about that anyone who goes out of the doors of your house into the street, his blood shall be on his own head, and we shall be free; but anyone who is with you in the house, his blood shall be on our head if a hand is laid on him. NIV 19 If any of them go outside your house into the street, their blood will be on their own heads; we will not be responsible. As for those who are in the house with you, their blood will be on our head if a hand is laid on them. NAS 20 "But if you tell this business of ours, then we shall be free from the oath which you have made us swear." NIV 20 But if you tell what we are doing, we will be released from the oath you made us swear.” NAS 21 She said, "According to your words, so be it." So she sent them away, and they departed; and she tied the scarlet cord in the window. NIV 21 “Agreed,” she replied. “Let it be as you say.” So she sent them away, and they departed. And she tied the scarlet cord in the window. NAS 22 They departed and came to the hill country, and remained there for three days until the pursuers returned. Now the pursuers had sought them all along the road, but had not found them. NIV 22 When they left, they went into the hills and stayed there three days, until the pursuers had searched all along the road and returned without finding them. NAS 23 Then the two men returned and came down from the hill country and crossed over and came to Joshua the son of Nun, and they related to him all that had happened to them. NIV 23 Then the two men started back. They went down out of the hills, forded the river and came to Joshua son of Nun and told him everything that had happened to them. NAS 24 They said to Joshua, "Surely the LORD has given all the land into our hands; moreover, all the inhabitants of the land have melted away before us." NIV 24 They said to Joshua, “The LORD has surely given the whole land into our hands; all the people are melting in fear because of us.”
