    Joshua 6

    1 Now Jericho was straitly shut up because of the children of Israel: none went out, and none came in.ASV — Joshua 6:1

    2 And Jehovah said unto Joshua, See, I have given into thy hand Jericho, and the king thereof, and the mighty men of valor.ASV — Joshua 6:2

    3 And ye shall compass the city, all the men of war, going about the city once. Thus shalt thou do six days.ASV — Joshua 6:3

    4 And seven priests shall bear seven trumpets of rams` horns before the ark: and the seventh day ye shall compass the city seven times, and the priests shall blow the trumpets.ASV — Joshua 6:4

    5 And it shall be, that, when they make a long blast with the ram`s horn, and when ye hear the sound of the trumpet, all the people shall shout with a great shout; and the wall of the city shall fall down flat, and the people shall go up every man straight before him.ASV — Joshua 6:5

    6 And Joshua the son of Nun called the priests, and said unto them, Take up the ark of the covenant, and let seven priests bear seven trumpets of rams` horns before the ark of Jehovah.ASV — Joshua 6:6

    7 And they said unto the people, Pass on, and compass the city, and let the armed men pass on before the ark of Jehovah.ASV — Joshua 6:7

    8 And it was so, that, when Joshua had spoken unto the people, the seven priests bearing the seven trumpets of rams` horns before Jehovah passed on, and blew the trumpets: and the ark of the covenant of Jehovah followed them.ASV — Joshua 6:8

    9 And the armed men went before the priests that blew the trumpets, and the rearward went after the ark, [the priests] blowing the trumpets as they went.ASV — Joshua 6:9

    10 And Joshua commanded the people, saying, Ye shall not shout, nor let your voice be heard, neither shall any word proceed out of your mouth, until the day I bid you shout; then shall ye shout.ASV — Joshua 6:10

    11 So he caused the ark of Jehovah to compass the city, going about it once: and they came into the camp, and lodged in the camp.ASV — Joshua 6:11

    12 And Joshua rose early in the morning, and the priests took up the ark of Jehovah.ASV — Joshua 6:12

    13 And the seven priests bearing the seven trumpets of rams` horns before the ark of Jehovah went on continually, and blew the trumpets: and the armed men went before them; and the rearward came after the ark of Jehovah, [the priests] blowing the trumpets as they went.ASV — Joshua 6:13

    14 And the second day they compassed the city once, and returned into the camp: so they did six days.ASV — Joshua 6:14

    15 And it came to pass on the seventh day, that they rose early at the dawning of the day, and compassed the city after the same manner seven times: only on the day they compassed the city seven times.ASV — Joshua 6:15

    16 And it came to pass at the seventh time, when the priests blew the trumpets, Joshua said unto the people, Shout; for Jehovah hath given you the city.ASV — Joshua 6:16

    17 And the city shall be devoted, even it and all that is therein, to Jehovah: only Rahab the harlot shall live, she and all that are with her in the house, because she hid the messengers that we sent.ASV — Joshua 6:17

    18 But as for you, only keep yourselves from the devoted thing, lest when ye have devoted it, ye take of the devoted thing; so would ye make the camp of Israel accursed, and trouble it.ASV — Joshua 6:18

    19 But all the silver, and gold, and vessels of brass and iron, are holy unto Jehovah: they shall come into the treasury of Jehovah.ASV — Joshua 6:19

    20 So the people shouted, and [the priests] blew the trumpets; and it came to pass, when the people heard the sound of the trumpet, that the people shouted with a great shout, and the wall fell down flat, so that the people went up into the city, every man straight before him, and they took the city.ASV — Joshua 6:20

    21 And they utterly destroyed all that was in the city, both man and woman, both young and old, and ox, and sheep, and ass, with the edge of the sword.ASV — Joshua 6:21

    22 And Joshua said unto the two men that had spied out the land, Go into the harlot`s house, and bring out thence the woman, and all that she hath, as ye sware unto her.ASV — Joshua 6:22

    23 And the young men the spies went in, and brought out Rahab, and her father, and her mother, and her brethren, and all that she had; all her kindred also they brought out; and they set them without the camp of Israel.ASV — Joshua 6:23

    24 And they burnt the city with fire, and all that was therein; only the silver, and the gold, and the vessels of brass and of iron, they put into the treasury of the house of Jehovah.ASV — Joshua 6:24

    25 But Rahab the harlot, and her father`s household, and all that she had, did Joshua save alive; and she dwelt in the midst of Israel unto this day, because she hid the messengers, whom Joshua sent to spy out Jericho.ASV — Joshua 6:25

    26 And Joshua charged them with an oath at that time, saying, Cursed be the man before Jehovah, that riseth up and buildeth this city Jericho: with the loss of his first-born shall he lay the foundation thereof, and with the loss of his youngest son shall he set up the gates of it.ASV — Joshua 6:26

    27 So Jehovah was with Joshua; and his fame was in all the land.ASV — Joshua 6:27
