Mark 10:46-52

46 Then they proceeded on to Jericho, and as he was going out of Jericho, with his disciples and a great multitude, blind Bartimeus, son of Timeus, was sitting by the way side, begging. 47 And when he heard that it is Jesus, the Nazarene, he began to cry aloud, and say, Jesus, son of David, have pity on me. 48 And many rebuked him, that he should hold his peace; but he cried the louder, Son of David, have pity on me. 49 There upon Jesus, stopping, ordered him to be called. So they call the blind man, Saying to him, Take courage; arise; he calleth thee. 50 Upon which, throwing aside his mantle, he sprang up and came to Jesus. 51 And Jesus, addressing him, said, What dost thou desire me to do for thee? And the blind man said to him, Rabboni, that I may again receive sight: 52 Thereupon Jesus said to him, Go thy way. Thy faith hath cured thee. And instantly he recovered his sight, and followed Jesus in the way.

Luke 19:1-9

1 When Jesus had entered and was passing through Jericho, 2 behold a man named Zaccheus who was chief publican and a wealthy man 3 sought to see Jesus, what sort of a person he was, but could not by reason of the crowd; for he was of a low stature. 4 So running before, he climbed a sycamine tree that he might see him, for he was to pass that way. 5 And when Jesus came to the place, he looked up, and saw him, and said to him, Zaccheus, make haste down, for I must stop today at thy house. 6 Accordingly he hasted and came down, and received him joyfully. 7 When the multitude saw this they murmured, saying, He is gone to be entertained by a sinner. 8 Whereupon Zaccheus, standing up, said to the Lord, Behold, Sir, the half of my goods I give to the poor. And if I have wronged any man, I make him fourfold restitution: 9 and Jesus said concerning him, Today salvation is come to this house, as this man is indeed a son of Abraham;

Joshua 6:1-27

1 [Now Jericho was shut up, and barricaded, so that none came out of it, nor went in.] 2 Then the Lord said to Joshua, Behold, I deliver into thy hand, Jericho, and the king thereof, who is in it, and the mighty men of valour. 3 Therefore array thou the warriors around it. 4 And when you blow the trumpets, 5 let all the people at the same time shout; and upon their shouting, the walls of the city will fall of their own accord; and all the people shall enter, every one straight forward into the city. 6 Thereupon Joshua son of Nave went to the priests, 7 and spoke to them, saying, Order the people to march round, and encompass the city, and let the warriors march armed before the Lord; 8 and let the seven priests, who have the seven holy trumpets, march also before the Lord, and blow a long blast. And let the ark of the covenant of the Lord accompany them. 9 Let the warriors march before, and the priests follow in the rear, after the ark of the covenant of the Lord, blowing the trumpets. 10 Then Joshua gave a charge to the people, saying, Shout not, nor let any one hear your voice, till the day when He shall command you to shout. Then you shall shout. 11 So when the ark of the covenant had gone round, it straightway returned to the camp, and lodged there. 12 And on the second day Joshua arose, early in the morning, and the priests took up the ark of the covenant of the Lord, 13 and the seven priests with the seven trumpets, marched on before the Lord and after them came the warriors, and all the rest of the multitude followed the ark of the covenant of the Lord. And the priests sounded the trumpets; 14 and all the multitude compassed the city six times, very near, and returned again to the camp. Thus they did six days. 15 But on the seventh day; they arose very early, and went round the city that day seven times. 16 And, at the seventh round, the priests sounded the trumpets, and Joshua said to the Israelites, Shout, for the Lord hath delivered up the city to you. 17 And this city shall be an Anathema. It, and all that are in it, shall be devoted to the Lord of Sabaoth; save Rahab the harlot. Her you shall save alive, and all that are in her house. 18 But be you very careful to abstain from the Anathema, lest peradventure you through covetousness, take something of what is devoted, and make the camp of the Israelites an Anathema, and destroy us. 19 All the silver, and the gold, and the brass, and the iron, shall be consecrated to the Lord, and carried to the Lord's treasury. 20 Then the priests sounded the trumpets; and when the people heard the trumpets, all the people together uttered a great, loud, and continued shout, whereupon the whole wall round about fell, and all the people went up into the city. 21 Now when Joshua devoted it, and all that were in it, men and women, young and old, ox and ass, to the edge of the sword, 22 he said to the two young men who had been sent as spies, Go to the house of the woman, and bring her out thence, with all that she hath. 23 And when the two young men, who had spied the city had gone to the house of the woman, and had brought out Rahab the harlot, and her father, and her mother, and her brothers, and her kindred, and all that were with her, and placed them without the camp of Israel, 24 the city was burned with fire, with all that were in it, save the silver, and gold, and the brass, and iron, which they gave to be carried to the treasury of the Lord. 25 So Joshua saved Rahab the harlot, and all her father's household alive. And at this day they dwell among Israel, because she concealed the spies whom Joshua had sent to spy Jericho. 26 And on that day Joshua uttered an imprecation before the Lord, saying, Cursed be the man who shall rebuild this city. With his first born let him lay the foundation, and with his youngest son erect its gates. 27 Thus the Lord was with Joshua, and his fame spread through all the land.
