Joshua Chapter 2

Joshua 2:1
2:1 And Joshua the son of Nun sent out of {a} 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.

    (a) Which was in the plain of Moab near Jordan.

Joshua 2:3
2:3 And the king of Jericho sent unto Rahab, saying, {b} Bring
    forth the men that are come to thee, which are entered into
    thine house: for they be come to search out all the country.

    (b) Though the wicked see the hand of God on them, they do
        not repent, but seek how they may by their power and
        policy resist his working.

Joshua 2:6
2:6 But she had brought them up to the {c} roof of the house,
    and hid them with the stalks of flax, which she had laid in
    order upon the roof.

    (c) Meaning, on the house: for then their houses were flat
        above, so that they might do their business on it.

Joshua 2:9
2:9 And she said unto the men, I know that the LORD hath given
    you the land, and that your {d} terror is fallen upon us,
    and that all the inhabitants of the land faint because of

    (d) For so God promised, Deuteronomy 28:7, Joshua 5:1.

Joshua 2:11
2:11 And 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 {e} the LORD your God, he [is] God in
     heaven above, and in earth beneath.

     (e) In this the great mercy of God appears, that in this
         common destruction he would draw a most miserable
         sinner to repent, and confess his Name.

Joshua 2:14
2:14 And the men answered her, {f} Our life for yours, if ye
     utter not this our business. And it shall be, when the LORD
     hath given us the land, that we will deal kindly and truly
     with thee.

     (f) We warrant you on pain of our lives.

Joshua 2:16
2:16 And she said unto them, Get you to the {g} mountain, lest
     the pursuers meet you; and hide yourselves there three
     days, until the pursuers be returned: and afterward may ye
     go your way.

     (g) which was near to the city.

Joshua 2:17
2:17 And the men said unto her, {h} We [will be] blameless of
     this thine oath which thou hast made us swear.

     (h) We will be released from our oath if you perform this
         condition that follows for so shall you and yours be

Joshua 2:19
2:19 And it shall be, [that] whosoever shall go out of the doors
     of thy house into the street, {i} his blood [shall be] upon
     his head, and we [will be] guiltless: and whosoever shall
     be with thee in the house, his blood [shall be] on our
     head, if [any] hand be upon him.

     (i) He shall be guilty of his own death.

Joshua 2:20
2:20 And if thou utter this our {k} business, then we will be
     quit of thine oath which thou hast made us to swear.

     (k) So that others should think to escape by the same
