When the Israelite spies went to the city of Jericho, they stayed at the house of a woman named Rahab.
Vbe Ivbi Izrẹl ni ya ba otọ e Jẹriko ghee ghi sẹ evba, owa okhuo ọkpa na tie ẹre Rehab ẹre iran dia.
The king of Jericho found out and sent soldiers to Rahab’s house.
Ọba e Jẹriko ghi họn, ọ na gie ivbi iyokuo gha rrie owa e Rehab.
She hid the two spies on the roof and sent the soldiers in another direction.
E Rehab keghi viọ ikpia nii lẹre ye uhunmwu owa re, ẹre ọ na tama ivbi iyokuo nii wẹẹ iran kpa nẹ.
She said to the spies:
Ọ keghi tama ikpia ni do ba e Jẹriko ghee wẹẹ:
‘I will help you because I know that Jehovah is on your side and that you will conquer the land.
‘I gha ru iyobọ ne uwa rhunmwuda I rẹnrẹn wẹẹ e Jehova rre uwa iyeke kevbe wẹẹ, uwa gha khọnmiotọ yan otọ na.
Please promise me that you will save my family.’
Lahọ, uwa ru eyan ma mwẹ wẹẹ uwa gha miẹn ẹgbẹe mwẹ fan.’
The spies told Rahab:
Ikpia nii keghi ru eyan ma e Rehab wẹẹ:
‘We promise that no one inside your house will be hurt.’
‘Emwi rhọkpa i khian ru uwẹ vbe ẹgbẹe ruẹ.’
Iran na vbe kha wẹẹ:
‘Tie a red cord in your window, and your family will be spared.’
‘Rhi irri nọ baa ye ewindo ruẹ, ne ima ghẹ mieke na guọghọ uwa.’
Rahab let the spies down by a rope from her window.
E Rehab na ghi ya irri mu iran la ewindo tuorre.
They went to the mountains and hid for three days before going back to Joshua.
Iran na ya lẹre ye uhunmwu oke vbe ikpẹdẹ eha, a te miẹn wẹẹ iran werriegbe bu e Jọsua.
Then the Israelites crossed the Jordan River and prepared to take the land.
Vbe iyeke ọni, Ivbi Izrẹl keghi fian Ẹzẹ e Jọdan rra, ẹre iran na la otọ nii.
Jericho was the first city they conquered.
E Jẹriko ẹre iran ka guọghọ.
Jehovah told them to march around the city one time each day for six days.
E Jehova keghi tama iran ne iran la ẹvbo nii lẹga vbe ikpẹdẹ ehan, iran ghi lae uhukpa vbe ẹdẹ.
On the seventh day, they marched around the city seven times.
Vbe ikpẹdẹ nogie ihinrọn, iran na la ẹvbo nii lẹga vbe igba ihinrọn.
Then the priests blew their trumpets, and the soldiers shouted as loud as they could.
Ẹre avbe ohẹn na ghi kpee okpe, ivbi iyokuo na da tu gogogo.
The walls of the city came crashing down!
Ẹre ekẹn ni rre ẹvbo nii na gha dele!
But Rahab’s house, which was on the wall, remained standing.
Sokpan owa e Rehab nọ diakẹ ogba ekẹn ọghe ẹvbo nii ma de.
Rahab and her family were saved because she trusted in Jehovah.
E Rehab vbe ẹgbẹe ọre keghi miẹn fan rhunmwuda ne iran na mu ẹtin yan e Jehova.
“In the same manner, was not Rahab ... also declared righteous by works after she received the messengers hospitably and sent them out by another way?”—James 2:25
“Erriọ ọghe Rehab ... vbe gha ye. Emwi ne ọ ru ọre a ya kae ye ne ọ mudia ẹse vbe odaro Osanobua, ne ọ na miẹn iran yi ighẹ emwa ne avbe Ju giẹre uhunmwu, ne ọ na ma iran odẹ ọvbehe la gha rrie.”—Jems 2:25
Why did Rahab help the spies?
Vbọsiẹ ne Rehab na ru iyobọ ne ikpia ni do ba otọ e Jẹriko ghee?
How did the Israelites attack Jericho?
De vbene Ivbi Izrẹl ya guọghọ e Jẹriko hẹ?
What happened to Rahab and her family?
Vbọ ghi sunu daa e Rehab vbe ẹgbẹe ọre?
