VW-Edition Bible (2010)Joshua - chapter 2, verses 12 - 21

12 Now therefore, I beg you, swear to me by Jehovah, since I have shown you kindness, that you also will show kindness to my father's house, and give me a true token,
13 and save alive my father, my mother, my brothers, my sisters, and all that they have, and deliver our souls from death.
14 And the men answered her, Our lives for yours, if you tell none of this business of ours. And it shall be, when Jehovah gives us the land, that we will deal kindly and truly with you.
15 Then she let them down by a rope through the window, for her house was on the side of the wall; she dwelt in the wall.
16 And she said to them, Go to the mountain, lest the pursuers meet you. Hide there three days, until the pursuers return; and afterward you may go your way.
17 And the men said to her: We will be exempt from this oath of yours which you have made us swear,
18 unless, when we come into the land, you bind this cord of scarlet thread in the window through which you have let us down; and you shall bring your father, your mother, your brothers, and all your father's household into your house.
19 And it shall be that whoever goes outside the doors of your house into the street, his blood shall be upon his own head, and we will be guiltless. And whoever is with you in the house, his blood shall be on our head if a hand is laid on him.
20 And if you tell this business of ours, then we will be free from your oath which you have made us swear.
21 And she said, According to your words, so be it. And she sent them away, and they departed. And she bound the scarlet cord in the window.
