Unchecked Copy BoxJos 2:11 - No wonder our hearts have melted in fear! No one has the courage to fight after hearing such things. For the LORD your God is the supreme God of the heavens above and the earth below.

Unchecked Copy BoxJos 2:15 - Then, since Rahab’s house was built into the town wall, she let them down by a rope through the window.

Unchecked Copy BoxJos 2:16 - “Escape to the hill country,” she told them. “Hide there for three days from the men searching for you. Then, when they have returned, you can go on your way.”

Unchecked Copy BoxJos 2:17 - Before they left, the men told her, “We will be bound by the oath we have taken only if you follow these instructions.

Unchecked Copy BoxJos 2:18 - When we come into the land, you must leave this scarlet rope hanging from the window through which you let us down. And all your family members—your father, mother, brothers, and all your relatives—must be here inside the house.

Unchecked Copy BoxJos 2:19 - If they go out into the street and are killed, it will not be our fault. But if anyone lays a hand on people inside this house, we will accept the responsibility for their death.

Unchecked Copy BoxJos 2:20 - If you betray us, however, we are not bound by this oath in any way.”
