(34) Victory over Jericho

Now the gates of Jericho were shut
because they heard what God had done
for Israelites along the way,
so they were afraid.
There was no way to in or out.
But God said to Joshua,
"I have given you Jericho,
Now listen, have your army to march
around the city once a day for 6 days.
On the 7th day, march around the city 7 times,
with priest blowing the horns.
When you hear the priests long blast on the horns,
have all Israelites shout.
Then the walls of the city will fall down,
and then conquer the city."
Joshua and Israelites did everything as God instructed.
On 7th day, after marched around the city 7 times,
they shouted as loud as they could.
and suddenly, the walls of Jericho collapsed,
and Israelites captured the city.
Everything was destroyed.
But Joshua spared Rehab who helped and protected 2 spies before.
God was with Joshua,
and his name became famous throughout the land.
