Now it was time for God's people to go in and take the land God had promised them. Joshua sent two men to spy on the city of Jericho. They came to the house of a woman named Rahab who told them all the people of Jericho were scared of the people of Israel and their God. Rahab believed in Israel's God and asked the spies to save her and her family. When the king of Jericho got word that there were spies in his city he sent soldiers to find them. Rahab told the spies to hide on her roof under some plants. When the soldiers came she told them the spies had already left and showed them where they should go look. When the soldiers went away Rahab let the spies down through her window. The spies told Rahab to hang a red cord in her window, and they would protect her. When the Israelites attacked Jericho, the spies saved her and her whole family. God saves everyone who believes in Him.
