Reading: The Spies and Rahab (Joshua 2:1~24)
Rahab then let the two men down through the window by a cord or a rope because her house was built on the town wall. She told them to go the mountains and hide there three days until the men who were trying to find them came back to Jericho. After that, the two spies could go back to their camp.
The two spies told Rahab that, since she made them promise to let her and her family live, she could not tell anyone about their business. They said that when she heard the Israelites coming into the land, to make sure she take the scarlet or red cord that she let the spies down through the window and tie it in her window. She should bring her family into her house because anyone else who was in the street or anywhere outside of Rahab's house would be killed. Again, they said if Rahab told anyone, then the promise would be broken. Rahab said that she would do what they spies asked. She sent the spies on their way and tied the scarlet cord in the window.
The spies hid in the mountain for three days until the ones who were looking for them gave up and went back to Jericho. Then, the two spies went down the mountain and crossed over the river to their camp. They told Joshua all that had happened. They said that the LORD had surely given the land to the Israelites because all of the people in the land of Canaan were afraid of them. This is something different from what the ten spies had said the first time forty years ago when they came back from spying out the land, isn't it? Now the spies say, "Yes! We can take the land!" We will soon see what happens to Rahab, her family and her town.
