1JERICHO was bolted and barred against the Israelites; no one could go out or in.

2The LORD said to Joshua, “See, I am delivering Jericho, its king, and his warriors into your hands.

3You are to march round the city with all your fighting men, making the circuit of it once a day for six days.

4Seven priests carrying seven trumpets made from rams” horns are to go ahead of the Ark. On the seventh day you are to march round the city seven times with the priests blowing their trumpets.

5At the blast of the rams' horns, when you hear the trumpet sound, the whole army must raise a great shout; the city wall will collapse and the army will advance, every man straight ahead.'

6Joshua son of Nun summoned the priests and gave them instructions: “Take up the Ark of the Covenant; let seven priests with seven trumpets of ram's horn go ahead of the Ark of the LORD.”

7Then he gave orders to the army: “Move on, march round the city, and let the men who have been drafted go in front of the Ark of the LORD.”

8After Joshua had issued this command to the army, the seven priests carrying the seven trumpets of ram's horn before the LORD moved on and blew the trumpets; the Ark of the Covenant of the LORD followed them.

9The drafted men marched in front of the priests who blew the trumpets, and the rearguard came behind the Ark, the trumpets sounding as they marched.

10But Joshua commanded the army not to shout, or to raise their voices or even utter a word, till the day when he would tell them to shout; then they were to give a mighty shout.

11Thus he made the Ark of the LORD go round the city, making the circuit of it once, and then they returned to the camp and spent the night there.

12Joshua rose early next morning, and the priests took up the Ark of the LORD.

13The seven priests carrying the seven trumpets of ram's horn marched in front of the Ark of the LORD, blowing the trumpets as they went, with the drafted men in front of them and the rearguard following the Ark, the trumpets sounding as they marched.

14They marched round the city once on the second day and returned to the camp; this they did for six days.

15On the seventh day they rose at dawn and marched seven times round the city in the same way; that was the only day on which they marched round seven times.

16The seventh time, as the priests blew the trumpets, Joshua said to the army, “Shout! The LORD has given you the city.

17The city is to be under solemn ban: everything in it belongs to the LORD. No one is to be spared except the prostitute Rahab and everyone who is with her in the house, because she hid the men we sent.

18And you must beware of coveting anything that is forbidden under the ban; you must take none of it for yourselves, or else you will put the Israelite camp itself under the ban and bring disaster on it.

19All silver and gold, all the vessels of copper and iron, are to be holy; they belong to the LORD and must go into his treasury.”

20So the trumpets were blown, and when the army heard the trumpets sound, they raised a great shout, and the wall collapsed. The army advanced on the city, every man straight ahead, and they captured it.

21Under the ban they destroyed everything there; they put everyone to the sword, men and women, young and old, as well as the cattle, the sheep, and the donkeys.

22The two men who had been sent out to reconnoitre the land were told by Joshua to go to the prostitute's house and bring out the woman and all who belonged to her, as they had sworn to do.

23The young men went and brought out Rahab, her father and mother, her brothers, and all who belonged to her; they brought the whole family and placed them outside the Israelite camp.

24The city and everything in it were then set on fire, except that the silver and gold and the vessels of copper and iron were deposited in the treasury of the LORD's house.

25Thus Joshua spared the lives of Rahab the prostitute, her household, and all who belonged to her, because she had hidden the men whom Joshua had sent to reconnoitre Jericho; she and her family settled permanently among the Israelites.

26At that time Joshua pronounced this curse: “May the LORD's curse light on anyone who comes forward to rebuild this city of Jericho: the laying of its foundations shall cost him his eldest son, the setting up of its gates shall cost him his youngest.”

27THE LORD was with Joshua, and his fame spread throughout the country.
