Joshua 2:3 {not in Tyndale; KJV:} And the king of Jericho sent unto Rahab, saying, 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. Joshua 2:4 {not in Tyndale; KJV:} And the woman took the two men, and hid them, and said thus, There came men unto me, but I knew not whence they [were]: Joshua 2:5 {not in Tyndale; KJV:} And it came to pass [about the time] of shutting of the gate, when it was dark, that the men went out: whither the men went I know not: pursue after them quickly; for ye shall overtake them.

Joshua 2:10 {not in Tyndale; KJV:} For we have heard how the LORD dried up the water of the Red sea for you, when ye came out of Egypt; and what ye did unto the two kings of the Amorites, that [were] on the other side Jordan, Sihon and Og, whom ye utterly destroyed. Joshua 2:11 {not in Tyndale; KJV:} 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 the LORD your God, he [is] God in heaven above, and in earth beneath.

Joshua 2:14 {not in Tyndale; KJV:} And the men answered her, Our life for yours, if ye utter not this our business.

Joshua 2:18 {not in Tyndale; KJV:} Behold, [when] we come into the land, thou shalt bind this line of scarlet thread in the window which thou didst let us down by: and thou shalt bring thy father, and thy mother, and thy brethren, and all thy father's household, home unto thee. Joshua 2:19 {not in Tyndale; KJV:} And it shall be, [that] whosoever shall go out of the doors of thy house into the street, 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.
