Woman of the Bible Series: Rahab
Rahab married Salmon of the tribe of Judah and was the mother of Boaz. Biblical interpreters have viewed Rahab as a model of hospitality, mercy, faith, patience and repentance in her interaction with Joshua's spies. Thus the harlot of Jericho became a paragon of virtue and was mentioned in the lineage of Messiah the Lord Jesus Christ.
Rahab took the two men sent by Joshua and hid them,
and when the King of Jericho came looking for them she said: "There came men unto me, but I wist not whence they were: 5 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. 6 But she had brought
them up to the roof of the house, and hid them with the
stalks of flax, which she had laid in order upon the roof." Joshua 2:4-6
When Joshua and army came to attack Jericho: "They burned the city with fire, and all that was in it. Only the silver and gold and articles of bronze and iron, they put into the treasury of the house of the LORD. However, Rahab the harlot and her father's household and all she had, Joshua spared; and she has lived in the midst of Israel to this day, for she hid the messengers whom Joshua sent to spy out Jericho." Joshua 6:24-25
She lowered a scarlet cord in her window to prevent Joshua's men from harming her. Joshua 2:18
