Rahab Welcomes the Spies

1And Joshua the son of Nun sent out of Shittim two men to spy secretly, saying, Go view the land, even Jericho. And they went, and came into an harlot's house, named Rahab, and lodged there. 2And it was told the king of Jericho, saying, Behold, there came men in here to night of the children of Israel to search out the country. 3And the king of Jericho sent to Rahab, saying, Bring forth the men that are come to you, which are entered into your house: for they be come to search out all the country. 4And the woman took the two men, and hid them, and said thus, There came men to me, but I knew not from where they were: 5And it came to pass about the time of shutting of the gate, when it was dark, that the men went out: where the men went I know not: pursue after them quickly; for you shall overtake them. 6But she had brought them up to the roof of the house, and hid them with the stalks of flax, which she had laid in order on the roof. 7And the men pursued after them the way to Jordan to the fords: and as soon as they which pursued after them were gone out, they shut the gate. 8And before they were laid down, she came up to them on the roof; 9And she said to the men, I know that the LORD has given you the land, and that your terror is fallen on us, and that all the inhabitants of the land faint because of you. 10For we have heard how the LORD dried up the water of the Red sea for you, when you came out of Egypt; and what you did to the two kings of the Amorites, that were on the other side Jordan, Sihon and Og, whom you utterly destroyed. 11And as soon as we had heard these things, our hearts did melt, neither did there remain any more courage in any man, because of you: for the LORD your God, he is God in heaven above, and in earth beneath. 12Now therefore, I pray you, swear to me by the LORD, since I have showed you kindness, that you will also show kindness to my father's house, and give me a true token: 13And that you will save alive my father, and my mother, and my brothers, and my sisters, and all that they have, and deliver our lives from death. 14And the men answered her, Our life for yours, if you utter not this our business. And it shall be, when the LORD has given us the land, that we will deal kindly and truly with you.

harlot's house Though the word {zonah} generally denotes a prostitute, yet many very learned men are of opinion that it should be here rendered an {innkeeper} or {hostess}, from {zoon} to furnish or provide food. In this sense it was understood by the Targumist, who renders it, {ittetha pundekeetha, `a woman, a tavern-keeper}, and so Chrysostome, in his second sermon on Repentance, calls her (). The Greek () by which the LXX. render it, and which is adopted by the Apostles, is derived from () to sell, and is also supposed to denote a tavern keeper. Among the ancients, women generally kept houses of entertainment. Herodotus says, `Among the Egyptians, the women carry on all commercial concerns, and keep taverns, while the men continue at home and weave.' The same custom prevailed among the Greeks.
