The Book of Joshua

Chapter 6

1

Now Jericho was straitly6 shut up30 because of the children of Israel: none went out,6 and none came in.6

2

And the LORD said4 unto Joshua, See,3 I have given1 into thine hand Jericho, and the king thereof, [and] the mighty men of valour.

3

And ye shall compass1 the city, all [ye] men of war, [and] go round about53 the city once. 259 Thus shalt thou do4 six days.

4

And seven priests shall bear4 before the ark seven trumpets of rams' horns: and the seventh day ye shall compass4 the city seven times, and the priests shall blow4 with the trumpets.

5

And it shall come to pass, that when they make a long2 [blast] with the ram's horn, [and] when ye hear2 the sound of the trumpet, all the people shall shout55 with a great shout; and the wall of the city shall fall down1 flat, and the people shall ascend up1 every man straight before him.

6

And Joshua the son of Nun called4 the priests, and said4 unto them, Take up3 the ark of the covenant, and let seven priests bear4 seven trumpets of rams' horns before the ark of the LORD.

7

And he said4 unto the people, Pass on,3 and compass3 the city, and let him that is armed7 pass on4 before the ark of the LORD.

8

And it came to pass, when Joshua had spoken2 unto the people, that the seven priests bearing6 the seven trumpets of rams' horns passed on1 before the LORD, and blew1 with the trumpets: and the ark of the covenant of the LORD followed6 them.

9

And the armed7 men went6 before the priests that blew6 8628 1 with the trumpets, and the rereward18 came6 after the ark, [the priests] going on,2 and blowing2 with the trumpets.

10

And Joshua had commanded14 the people, saying,2 Ye shall not shout,55 nor make any noise55 with your voice, neither shall [any] word proceed4 out of your mouth, until the day I bid2 you shout;54 then shall ye shout.52

11

So the ark of the LORD compassed55 the city, going about53 [it] once: 259 and they came4 into the camp, and lodged4 in the camp.

12

And Joshua rose early55 in the morning, and the priests took up4 the ark of the LORD.

13

And seven priests bearing6 seven trumpets of rams' horns before the ark of the LORD went on6 continually,2 and blew1 with the trumpets: and the armed7 men went6 before them; but the rereward18 came6 after the ark of the LORD, [the priests] going on,2 and blowing2 with the trumpets.

14

And the second day they compassed4 the city once, 259 and returned4 into the camp: so they did1 six days.

15

And it came to pass on the seventh day, that they rose early55 about the dawning2 of the day, and compassed4 the city after the same manner seven times: only on that day they compassed1 the city seven times.

16

And it came to pass at the seventh time, when the priests blew1 with the trumpets, Joshua said4 unto the people, Shout;54 for the LORD hath given1 you the city.

17

And the city shall be accursed, [even] it, and all that [are] therein, to the LORD: only Rahab the harlot6 shall live,4 she and all that [are] with her in the house, because she hid52 the messengers that we sent.1

18

And ye, in any wise keep3 [yourselves] from the accursed thing, lest ye make [yourselves] accursed,55 when ye take1 of the accursed thing, and make1 the camp of Israel a curse, and trouble1 it.

19

But all the silver, and gold, and vessels of brass and iron, [are] consecrated unto the LORD: they shall come4 into the treasury of the LORD.

20

So the people shouted55 when [the priests] blew4 with the trumpets: and it came to pass, when the people heard2 the sound of the trumpet, and the people shouted55 with a great shout, that the wall fell down4 flat, so that the people went up4 into the city, every man straight before him, and they took4 the city.

21

And they utterly destroyed55 all that [was] in the city, both man and woman, young and old, and ox, and sheep, and ass, with the edge of the sword.

22

But Joshua had said1 unto the two men that had spied out18 the country, Go3 into the harlot's 2181 6 house, and bring out54 thence the woman, and all that she hath, as ye sware8 unto her.

23

And the young men that were spies18 went in,4 and brought out55 Rahab, and her father, and her mother, and her brethren, and all that she had; and they brought out52 all her kindred, and left55 them without the camp of Israel.

24

And they burnt1 the city with fire, and all that [was] therein: only the silver, and the gold, and the vessels of brass and of iron, they put1 into the treasury of the house of the LORD.

25

And Joshua saved Rahab the harlot6 alive,52 and her father's household, and all that she had; and she dwelleth4 in Israel [even] unto this day; because she hid52 the messengers, which Joshua sent1 to spy out15 Jericho.

26

And Joshua adjured55 [them] at that time, saying,2 Cursed7 [be] the man before the LORD, that riseth up4 and buildeth1 this city Jericho: he shall lay the foundation17 thereof in his firstborn, and in his youngest [son] shall he set up55 the gates of it.

27

So the LORD was with Joshua; and his fame was [noised] throughout all the country.
