Bible study 192 – Joshua 6Posted: April 14, 2017
The Israelites march around Jericho with the ark for seven days, after which “the wall fell down flat”. The Israelites kill everyone inside except the prostitute Rahab and her family, burn down the city, and steal all the gold and silver to donate it to the central treasury. Rahab is allowed to live with the Israelites, but Joshua curses anyone who tries to build up Jericho again.
Then they devoted to destruction by the edge of the sword all in the city, both men and women, young and old, oxen, sheep, and donkeys.
