“And spare my father, my mother, my brother, my sisters, and all that they have, and deliver our lives from death.” Joshua 2:13
Joshua sent two men to spy out Jericho because he was going to take it by force (At that time Joshua did not know that God was going to work a miracle, and Jericho would fall). The two men, hiding from the king of Jericho, sought shelter in the house of Rahab the prostitute. Because hers was a public house, it was common for people to be seen coming and going. It seemed the perfect place to stay.
