Unchecked Copy BoxJos 6:25 - So Joshua spared Rahab the prostitute and her relatives who were with her in the house, because she had hidden the spies Joshua sent to Jericho. And she lives among the Israelites to this day.

Unchecked Copy BoxJos 6:26 - At that time Joshua invoked this curse:
“May the curse of the LORD fall on anyone
who tries to rebuild the town of Jericho.
At the cost of his firstborn son,
he will lay its foundation.
At the cost of his youngest son,
he will set up its gates.”

Unchecked Copy BoxJos 6:27 - So the LORD was with Joshua, and his reputation spread throughout the land.
NLT Footnotes
The Hebrew term used here refers to the complete consecration of things or people to the LORD, either by destroying them or by giving them as an offering; similarly in 6:18, 21.
