|1 καὶ Ιεριχω συγκεκλεισμένη καὶ ὠχυρωμένη καὶ οὐθεὶς ἐξεπορεύετο ἐξ αὐτῆς οὐδὲ εἰσεπορεύετο 2 καὶ εἶπεν κύριος πρὸς Ἰησοῦν ἰδοὺ ἐγὼ παραδίδωμι ὑποχείριόν σου τὴν Ιεριχω καὶ τὸν βασιλέα αὐτῆς τὸν ἐν αὐτῇ δυνατοὺς ὄντας ἐν ἰσχύι 3 σὺ δὲ περίστησον αὐτῇ τοὺς μαχίμους κύκλῳ 4 καὶ ἔσται ὡς ἂν σαλπίσητε τῇ σάλπιγγι ἀνακραγέτω πᾶς ὁ λαὸς ἅμα καὶ ἀνακραγόντων αὐτῶν πεσεῖται αὐτόματα τὰ τείχη τῆς πόλεως καὶ εἰσελεύσεται πᾶς ὁ λαὸς ὁρμήσας ἕκαστος κατὰ πρόσωπον εἰς τὴν πόλιν 5||1 Already Jericho was bolted and barred against the approach of Israel, so that there was no entering or leaving it, 2 and now the Lord promised to make Josue master of it, with its king and all its defenders. 3 Once a day, he said, you will march round the city walls, every man of you that bears arms, for six days together. 4 And on the seventh day do as follows. The priests will be carrying seven trumpets, such as are used at jubilee time, and marching with these in front of the ark that bears witness of my covenant. On this day you will go round the city seven times, to the sound of the trumpets the priests are carrying. 5 And when the trumpets blow a long blast that rises and falls, the whole people, on hearing it, must raise a loud cry; at that cry, the walls of the city will fall down flat, and each man will go in to the assault at the place where he is posted.||1 Jericho autem clausa erat atque munita, timore filiorum Israël, et nullus egredi audebat aut ingredi. 2 Dixitque Dominus ad Josue: Ecce dedi in manu tua Jericho, et regem ejus, omnesque fortes viros. 3 Circuite urbem cuncti bellatores semel per diem: sic facietis sex diebus. 4 Septimo autem die, sacerdotes tollant septem buccinas, quarum usus est in jubilæo, et præcedant arcam fœderis: septiesque circuibitis civitatem, et sacerdotes clangent buccinis. 5 Cumque insonuerit vox tubæ longior atque concisior, et in auribus vestris increpuerit, conclamabit omnis populus vociferatione maxima, et muri funditus corruent civitatis, ingredienturque singuli per locum contra quem steterint.|
|6 καὶ εἰσῆλθεν Ἰησοῦς ὁ τοῦ Ναυη πρὸς τοὺς ἱερεῖς 7 καὶ εἶπεν αὐτοῖς λέγων παραγγείλατε τῷ λαῷ περιελθεῖν καὶ κυκλῶσαι τὴν πόλιν καὶ οἱ μάχιμοι παραπορευέσθωσαν ἐνωπλισμένοι ἐναντίον κυρίου 8 καὶ ἑπτὰ ἱερεῖς ἔχοντες ἑπτὰ σάλπιγγας ἱερὰς παρελθέτωσαν ὡσαύτως ἐναντίον τοῦ κυρίου καὶ σημαινέτωσαν εὐτόνως καὶ ἡ κιβωτὸς τῆς διαθήκης κυρίου ἐπακολουθείτω 9 οἱ δὲ μάχιμοι ἔμπροσθεν παραπορευέσθωσαν καὶ οἱ ἱερεῖς οἱ οὐραγοῦντες ὀπίσω τῆς κιβωτοῦ τῆς διαθήκης κυρίου πορευόμενοι καὶ σαλπίζοντες 10 τῷ δὲ λαῷ ἐνετείλατο Ἰησοῦς λέγων μὴ βοᾶτε μηδὲ ἀκουσάτω μηθεὶς ὑμῶν τὴν φωνήν ἕως ἂν ἡμέραν αὐτὸς διαγγείλῃ ἀναβοῆσαι καὶ τότε ἀναβοήσετε 11 καὶ περιελθοῦσα ἡ κιβωτὸς τῆς διαθήκης τοῦ θεοῦ τὴν πόλιν εὐθέως ἀπῆλθεν εἰς τὴν παρεμβολὴν καὶ ἐκοιμήθη ἐκεῖ 12 καὶ τῇ ἡμέρᾳ τῇ δευτέρᾳ ἀνέστη Ἰησοῦς τὸ πρωί καὶ ἦραν οἱ ἱερεῖς τὴν κιβωτὸν τῆς διαθήκης κυρίου 13 καὶ οἱ ἑπτὰ ἱερεῖς οἱ φέροντες τὰς σάλπιγγας τὰς ἑπτὰ προεπορεύοντο ἐναντίον κυρίου καὶ μετὰ ταῦτα εἰσεπορεύοντο οἱ μάχιμοι καὶ ὁ λοιπὸς ὄχλος ὄπισθε τῆς κιβωτοῦ τῆς διαθήκης κυρίου καὶ οἱ ἱερεῖς ἐσάλπισαν ταῖς σάλπιγξι καὶ ὁ λοιπὸς ὄχλος ἅπας περιεκύκλωσε τὴν πόλιν ἐγγύθεν 14 καὶ ἀπῆλθεν πάλιν εἰς τὴν παρεμβολήν οὕτως ἐποίει ἐπὶ ἓξ ἡμέρας 15 καὶ τῇ ἡμέρᾳ τῇ ἑβδόμῃ ἀνέστησαν ὄρθρου καὶ περιήλθοσαν τὴν πόλιν ἑξάκις 16 καὶ τῇ περιόδῳ τῇ ἑβδόμῃ ἐσάλπισαν οἱ ἱερεῖς καὶ εἶπεν Ἰησοῦς τοῖς υἱοῖς Ισραηλ κεκράξατε παρέδωκεν γὰρ κύριος ὑμῖν τὴν πόλιν 17 καὶ ἔσται ἡ πόλις ἀνάθεμα αὐτὴ καὶ πάντα ὅσα ἐστὶν ἐν αὐτῇ κυρίῳ σαβαωθ πλὴν Ρααβ τὴν πόρνην περιποιήσασθε αὐτὴν καὶ ὅσα ἐστὶν ἐν τῷ οἴκῳ αὐτῆς 18 ἀλλὰ ὑμεῖς φυλάξασθε σφόδρα ἀπὸ τοῦ ἀναθέματος μήποτε ἐνθυμηθέντες ὑμεῖς αὐτοὶ λάβητε ἀπὸ τοῦ ἀναθέματος καὶ ποιήσητε τὴν παρεμβολὴν τῶν υἱῶν Ισραηλ ἀνάθεμα καὶ ἐκτρίψητε ἡμᾶς 19 καὶ πᾶν ἀργύριον ἢ χρυσίον ἢ χαλκὸς ἢ σίδηρος ἅγιον ἔσται τῷ κυρίῳ εἰς θησαυρὸν κυρίου εἰσενεχθήσεται|| 6 So Josue the son of Nun summoned the priests and gave them their orders; how some were to carry the ark of the Lord, and seven others march before it with the trumpets of jubilee; 7 then he bade the people march round the city, fully armed, in front of the ark. 8 When Josue had finished speaking, the seven priests blew their seven trumpets before the ark, 9 and all the fighting men went fully armed in front of it, while the rest of the people followed; and the blast of the trumpets echoed all around. 10 Josue had warned the people not to cry out or utter any sound until the day came when he should bid them cry aloud. 11 So that day the ark of the Lord went round the city once, and was brought back to the camp, where it rested. 12 And when the next day dawned, Josue was astir, and the priests took up the ark, 13 seven of them carrying the seven jubilee trumpets and blowing them before the ark as they went, with the fighting men in the van and the rest of the people behind, marching to the noise of trumpets; 14 and again they returned back to the camp when they had gone round the city once only.
Thus the six days passed, 15 and on the seventh day they rose at dawn and went round the city seven times, as they were bidden. 16 And when the priests were ready to blow their trumpets on the seventh journey, Josue gave word to the whole of Israel, Now you are to shout; the Lord has put the city in your power. 17 This city and all it contains is forfeit to the Lord; none must be spared except the harlot Rahab and those in her house. She it was that harboured the spies we sent out. 18 Beware of touching anything that lies under the ban; that were sin in you, and trouble would come upon the whole camp of Israel through your guilt. 19 All the gold and silver, all that is made of bronze or iron, must be consecrated to the Lord and laid up in his treasure-house.
|6 Vocavit ergo Josue filius Nun sacerdotes, et dixit ad eos: Tollite arcam fœderis: et septem alii sacerdotes tollant septem jubilæorum buccinas, et incedant ante arcam Domini. 7 Ad populum quoque ait: Ite, et circuite civitatem, armati, præcedentes arcam Domini. 8 Cumque Josue verba finisset, et septem sacerdotes septem buccinis clangerent ante arcam fœderis Domini, 9 omnisque præcederet armatus exercitus, reliquum vulgus arcam sequebatur, ac buccinis omnia concrepabant. 10 Præceperat autem Josue populo, dicens: Non clamabitis, nec audietur vox vestra, neque ullus sermo ex ore vestro egredietur, donec veniat dies in quo dicam vobis: Clamate, et vociferamini. 11 Circuivit ergo arca Domini civitatem semel per diem, et reversa in castra mansit ibi. 12 Igitur Josue de nocte consurgente, tulerunt sacerdotes arcam Domini, 13 et septem ex eis septem buccinas, quarum in jubilæo usus est: præcedebantque arcam Domini ambulantes atque clangentes: et armatus populus ibat ante eos, vulgus autem reliquum sequebatur arcam, et buccinis personabat. 14 Circuieruntque civitatem secundo die semel, et reversi sunt in castra. Sic fecerunt sex diebus. 15 Dies autem septimo, diluculo consurgentes, circuierunt urbem, sicut dispositum erat, septies. 16 Cumque septimo circuitu clangerent buccinis sacerdotes, dixit Josue ad omnem Israël: Vociferamini: tradidit enim vobis Dominus civitatem. 17 Sitque civitas hæc anathema, et omnia quæ in ea sunt, Domino: sola Rahab meretrix vivat, cum universis qui cum ea in domo sunt: abscondit enim nuntios quos direximus. 18 Vos autem cavete ne de his, quæ præcepta sunt, quippiam contingatis, et sitis prævaricationis rei, et omnia castra Israël sub peccato sint atque turbentur. 19 Quidquid autem auri et argenti fuerit, et vasorum æneorum ac ferri, Domino consecretur, repositum in thesauris ejus.|
|20 καὶ ἐσάλπισαν ταῖς σάλπιγξιν οἱ ἱερεῖς ὡς δὲ ἤκουσεν ὁ λαὸς τὴν φωνὴν τῶν σαλπίγγων ἠλάλαξεν πᾶς ὁ λαὸς ἅμα ἀλαλαγμῷ μεγάλῳ καὶ ἰσχυρῷ καὶ ἔπεσεν ἅπαν τὸ τεῖχος κύκλῳ καὶ ἀνέβη πᾶς ὁ λαὸς εἰς τὴν πόλιν 21 καὶ ἀνεθεμάτισεν αὐτὴν Ἰησοῦς καὶ ὅσα ἦν ἐν τῇ πόλει ἀπὸ ἀνδρὸς καὶ ἕως γυναικός ἀπὸ νεανίσκου καὶ ἕως πρεσβύτου καὶ ἕως μόσχου καὶ ὑποζυγίου ἐν στόματι ῥομφαίας 22 καὶ τοῖς δυσὶν νεανίσκοις τοῖς κατασκοπεύσασιν εἶπεν Ἰησοῦς εἰσέλθατε εἰς τὴν οἰκίαν τῆς γυναικὸς καὶ ἐξαγάγετε αὐτὴν ἐκεῖθεν καὶ ὅσα ἐστὶν αὐτῇ 23 καὶ εἰσῆλθον οἱ δύο νεανίσκοι οἱ κατασκοπεύσαντες τὴν πόλιν εἰς τὴν οἰκίαν τῆς γυναικὸς καὶ ἐξηγάγοσαν Ρααβ τὴν πόρνην καὶ τὸν πατέρα αὐτῆς καὶ τὴν μητέρα αὐτῆς καὶ τοὺς ἀδελφοὺς αὐτῆς καὶ πάντα ὅσα ἦν αὐτῇ καὶ πᾶσαν τὴν συγγένειαν αὐτῆς καὶ κατέστησαν αὐτὴν ἔξω τῆς παρεμβολῆς Ισραηλ 24 καὶ ἡ πόλις ἐνεπρήσθη ἐμπυρισμῷ σὺν πᾶσιν τοῖς ἐν αὐτῇ πλὴν ἀργυρίου καὶ χρυσίου καὶ χαλκοῦ καὶ σιδήρου ἔδωκαν εἰς θησαυρὸν κυρίου εἰσενεχθῆναι 25 καὶ Ρααβ τὴν πόρνην καὶ πάντα τὸν οἶκον τὸν πατρικὸν αὐτῆς ἐζώγρησεν Ἰησοῦς καὶ κατῴκησεν ἐν τῷ Ισραηλ ἕως τῆς σήμερον ἡμέρας διότι ἔκρυψεν τοὺς κατασκοπεύσαντας οὓς ἀπέστειλεν Ἰησοῦς κατασκοπεῦσαι τὴν Ιεριχω 26 καὶ ὥρκισεν Ἰησοῦς ἐν τῇ ἡμέρᾳ ἐκείνῃ ἐναντίον κυρίου λέγων ἐπικατάρατος ὁ ἄνθρωπος ὃς οἰκοδομήσει τὴν πόλιν ἐκείνην ἐν τῷ πρωτοτόκῳ αὐτοῦ θεμελιώσει αὐτὴν καὶ ἐν τῷ ἐλαχίστῳ αὐτοῦ ἐπιστήσει τὰς πύλας αὐτῆς καὶ οὕτως ἐποίησεν Οζαν ὁ ἐκ Βαιθηλ ἐν τῷ Αβιρων τῷ πρωτοτόκῳ ἐθεμελίωσεν αὐτὴν καὶ ἐν τῷ ἐλαχίστῳ διασωθέντι ἐπέστησεν τὰς πύλας αὐτῆς|| 20 Then the people cried aloud, and still the trumpets blew, till every ear was deafened by the shouting and the clangour; and all at once the walls fell down flat. Thereupon each man went to the assault where he was posted, and they took the city. 21 All that was in it they slew, sparing neither man nor woman, neither youth nor age; even cattle and sheep and asses were put to the sword. 22 But now Josue said to the two men who had been sent out as spies, Make your way into the house of the harlot yonder, and bring her out, with all that is hers; such was the sworn promise you gave her. 23 So the two men went in, and brought Rahab out with her parents and her kindred and all that belonged to her, giving this family of hers lodging, but not in the camp of Israel. 24 Then they burned the city and all that was in it, except the silver and gold and what was made of bronze or iron; these they laid up as consecrated in the Lord’s treasury. 25 But Josue spared the harlot Rahab, with all her father’s household and all that was hers; and to this day her posterity finds a home in Israel. So well was she rewarded for hiding away those two spies of his in Jericho.
At this time Josue laid the place under a ban; 26 May the Lord’s curse, he said, light on the man that restores the city of Jericho and builds it up again. The foundations will cost him his first-born, and the gates of it his youngest son.
|20 Igitur omni populo vociferante, et clangentibus tubis, postquam in aures multitudinis vox sonitusque increpuit, muri illico corruerunt: et ascendit unusquisque per locum qui contra se erat: ceperuntque civitatem, 21 et interfecerunt omnia quæ erant in ea, a viro usque ad mulierem, ab infante usque ad senem. Boves quoque et oves et asinos in ore gladii percusserunt. 22 Duobus autem viris, qui exploratores missi fuerant, dixit Josue: Ingredimini domum mulieris meretricis, et producite eam, et omnia quæ illius sunt, sicut illi juramento firmastis. 23 Ingressique juvenes eduxerunt Rahab, et parentes ejus, fratres quoque, et cunctam supellectilem ac cognationem illius, et extra castra Israël manere fecerunt. 24 Urbem autem, et omnia quæ erant in ea, succenderunt, absque auro et argento, et vasis æneis, ac ferro, quæ in ærarium Domini consecrarunt. 25 Rahab vero meretricem, et domum patris ejus, et omnia quæ habebat, fecit Josue vivere, et habitaverunt in medio Israël, usque in præsentem diem: eo quod absconderit nuntios, quos miserat ut explorarent Jericho. In tempore illo, imprecatus est Josue, dicens: 26 Maledictus vir coram Domino, qui suscitaverit et ædificaverit civitatem Jericho. In primogenito suo fundamenta illius jaciat, et in novissimo liberorum ponat portas ejus.|
|27 καὶ ἦν κύριος μετὰ Ἰησοῦ καὶ ἦν τὸ ὄνομα αὐτοῦ κατὰ πᾶσαν τὴν γῆν||27 And the Lord stood at Josue’s side, till his fame spread abroad all over the land.||27 Fuit ergo Dominus cum Josue, et nomen ejus vulgatum est in omni terra.|
 The Latin version seems to imply that the trumpets were to be carried only on the seventh day; but see verse 8 below. The Hebrew text has ‘seven priests will carry seven trumpets’.
