Joshua 2:17
Context
The Promise to Rahab

15Then she let them down by a cord through the window: for her house was on the town wall, and she dwelled on the wall. 16And she said to them, Get you to the mountain, lest the pursuers meet you; and hide yourselves there three days, until the pursuers be returned: and afterward may you go your way. 17And the men said to her, We will be blameless of this your oath which you have made us swear. 18Behold, when we come into the land, you shall bind this line of scarlet thread in the window which you did let us down by: and you shall bring your father, and your mother, and your brothers, and all your father's household, home to you. 19And it shall be, that whoever shall go out of the doors of your house into the street, his blood shall be on his head, and we will be guiltless: and whoever shall be with you in the house, his blood shall be on our head, if any hand be on him. 20And if you utter this our business, then we will be quit of your oath which you have made us to swear. 21And she said, According to your words, so be it. And she sent them away, and they departed: and she bound the scarlet line in the window. 22And they went, and came to the mountain, and stayed there three days, until the pursuers were returned: and the pursuers sought them throughout all the way, but found them not. 23So the two men returned, and descended from the mountain, and passed over, and came to Joshua the son of Nun, and told him all things that befell them: 24And they said to Joshua, Truly the LORD has delivered into our hands all the land; for even all the inhabitants of the country do faint because of us.
