2:1 And Joshua [H3091] the son [H1121] of Nun [H5126] sent [H7971] out of Shittim [H7851] two [H8147] men [H582] to spy [H7270] secretly [H2791] , saying [H559] , Go [H3212] view [H7200] the land [H776] , even Jericho [H3405] . And they went [H3212] , and came [H935] into an harlot's [H2181] house [H802] [H1004] , named [H8034] Rahab [H7343] , and lodged [H7901] there.(sent: or, had sent)(lodged: Heb. lay)

2:2 And it was told [H559] the king [H4428] of Jericho [H3405] , saying [H559] , Behold, there came [H935] men [H582] in hither to night [H3915] of the children [H1121] of Israel [H3478] to search out [H2658] the country [H776] .

2:3 And the king [H4428] of Jericho [H3405] sent [H7971] unto Rahab [H7343] , saying [H559] , Bring forth [H3318] the men [H582] that are come [H935] to thee, which are entered [H935] into thine house [H1004] : for they be come [H935] to search out [H2658] all the country [H776] .

2:4 And the woman [H802] took [H3947] the two [H8147] men [H582] , and hid [H6845] them, and said [H559] thus, There came [H935] men [H582] unto me, but I wist [H3045] not whence [H370] they [were]:

2:5 And it came to pass [about the time] of shutting [H5462] of the gate [H8179] , when it was dark [H2822] , that the men [H582] went out [H3318] : whither the men [H582] went [H1980] I wot [H3045] not: pursue [H7291] after [H310] them quickly [H4118] ; for ye shall overtake [H5381] them.

2:6 But she had brought them up [H5927] to the roof [H1406] of the house, and hid [H2934] them with the stalks [H6086] of flax [H6593] , which she had laid in order [H6186] upon the roof [H1406] .

2:7 And the men [H582] pursued [H7291] after [H310] them the way [H1870] to Jordan [H3383] unto the fords [H4569] : and as soon as they which pursued [H7291] after [H310] them were gone out [H3318] , they shut [H5462] the gate [H8179] .

2:8 And before they were laid down [H7901] , she came up [H5927] unto them upon the roof [H1406] ;

2:9 And she said [H559] unto the men [H582] , I know [H3045] that the LORD [H3068] hath given [H5414] you the land [H776] , and that your terror [H367] is fallen [H5307] upon us, and that all the inhabitants [H3427] of the land [H776] faint [H4127] because [H6440] of you.(faint: Heb. melt)

2:10 For we have heard [H8085] how the LORD [H3068] dried up [H3001] the water [H4325] of the Red [H5488] sea [H3220] for you [H6440] , when ye came out [H3318] of Egypt [H4714] ; and what ye did [H6213] unto the two [H8147] kings [H4428] of the Amorites [H567] , that [were] on the other side [H5676] Jordan [H3383] , Sihon [H5511] and Og [H5747] , whom ye utterly destroyed [H2763] .

2:11 And as soon as we had heard [H8085] [these things], our hearts [H3824] did melt [H4549] , neither did there remain [H6965] any more courage [H7307] in any man [H376] , because [H6440] of you: for the LORD [H3068] your God [H430] , he [is] God [H430] in heaven [H8064] above [H4605] , and in earth [H776] beneath.(did there: Heb. rose up)

2:12 Now therefore, I pray you, swear [H7650] unto me by the LORD [H3068] , since [H3588] I have shewed [H6213] you kindness [H2617] , that ye will also shew [H6213] kindness [H2617] unto my father's [H1] house [H1004] , and give [H5414] me a true [H571] token [H226] :

2:13 And [that] ye will save alive [H2421] my father [H1] , and my mother [H517] , and my brethren [H251] , and my sisters [H269] , and all that they have, and deliver [H5337] our lives [H5315] from death [H4194] .

2:14 And the men [H582] answered [H559] her, Our life [H5315] for yours [H4191] , if ye utter [H5046] not this our business [H1697] . And it shall be, when the LORD [H3068] hath given [H5414] us the land [H776] , that we will deal [H6213] kindly [H2617] and truly [H571] with thee.(for: Heb. instead of you to die)

2:15 Then she let them down [H3381] by a cord [H2256] through [H1157] the window [H2474] : for her house [H1004] [was] upon the town [H7023] wall [H2346] , and she dwelt [H3427] upon the wall [H2346] .

2:16 And she said [H559] unto them, Get [H3212] you to the mountain [H2022] , lest the pursuers [H7291] meet [H6293] you; and hide [H2247] yourselves there three [H7969] days [H3117] , until the pursuers [H7291] be returned [H7725] : and afterward [H310] may ye go [H3212] your way [H1870] .

2:17 And the men [H582] said [H559] unto her, We [will be] blameless [H5355] of this thine oath [heb7621] which thou hast made us swear [H7650] .

2:18 Behold, [when] we come [H935] into the land [H776] , thou shalt bind [H7194] this line [H8615] of scarlet [H8144] thread [H2339] in the window [H2474] which thou didst let us down by [H3381] : and thou shalt bring [H622] thy father [H1] , and thy mother [H517] , and thy brethren [H251] , and all thy father's [H1] household [H1004] , home [H1004] unto thee.(bring: Heb. gather)

2:19 And it shall be, [that] whosoever [H834] shall go out [H3318] of the doors [H1817] of thy house [H1004] into the street [H2351] , his blood [H1818] [shall be] upon his head [H7218] , and we [will be] guiltless [H5355] : and whosoever shall be with thee in the house [heb1004] , his blood [H1818] [shall be] on our head [H7218] , if [any] hand [H3027] be upon him.

2:20 And if thou utter [H5046] this our business [H1697] , then we will be quit [H5355] of thine oath [heb7621] which thou hast made us to swear [H7650] .

2:21 And she said [H559] , According unto your words [H1697] , so [be] it. And she sent them away [H7971] , and they departed [H3212] : and she bound [H7194] the scarlet [H8144] line [H8615] in the window [H2474] .

2:22 And they went [H3212] , and came [H935] unto the mountain [H2022] , and abode [H3427] there three [H7969] days [H3117] , until the pursuers [H7291] were returned [H7725] : and the pursuers [H7291] sought [H1245] [them] throughout all the way [H1870] , but found [H4672] [them] not.

2:23 So the two [H8147] men [H582] returned [H7725] , and descended [H3381] from the mountain [H2022] , and passed over [H5674] , and came [H935] to Joshua [H3091] the son [H1121] of Nun [H5126] , and told [H5608] him all [things] that befell [H4672] them:

2:24 And they said [H559] unto Joshua [H3091] , Truly [H3588] the LORD [H3068] hath delivered [H5414] into our hands [H3027] all the land [H776] ; for even all the inhabitants [H3427] of the country [H776] do faint [H4127] because [H6440] of us.(faint: Heb. melt)
