And it shall come to pass, 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 ascend up every man straight before him.

And it came to pass at the seventh time, when the priests blew with the trumpets, Joshua said unto the people, Shout; for the LORD hath given you the city.

第17段

这城和其中所有的都要在耶和华面前毁灭。只有妓女喇合与她家中所有的可以存活,因为她隐藏了我们所打发的使者。
And the city shall be accursed, even it, and all that are therein, to the LORD: only Rahab the harlot shall live, she and all that are with her in the house, because she hid the messengers that we sent.

至于你们,务要谨慎,不可取那当灭的物,恐怕你们取了那当灭的物就连累以色列的全营,使全营受咒诅。
And ye, in any wise keep yourselves from the accursed thing, lest ye make yourselves accursed, when ye take of the accursed thing, and make the camp of Israel a curse, and trouble it.

第21段

又将城中所有的,不拘男女老少,牛羊和驴,都用刀杀尽。

And Joshua saved Rahab the harlot alive, and her father's household, and all that she had; and she dwelleth in Israel even unto this day; because she hid the messengers, which Joshua sent to spy out Jericho.

第26段

当时,约书亚叫众人起誓说,有兴起重修这耶利哥城的人,当在耶和华面前受咒诅。他立根基的时候,必丧长子,安门的时候,必丧幼子。
And Joshua adjured them at that time, saying, Cursed be the man before the LORD, that riseth up and buildeth this city Jericho: he shall lay the foundation thereof in his firstborn, and in his youngest son shall he set up the gates of it.

第27段

耶和华与约书亚同在,约书亚的声名传扬遍地。
So the LORD was with Joshua; and his fame was noised throughout all the country.
