Jericho had closed its gates because of the Israelites, and no one went in or out. But Jehovah said to Joshua, "See, I have given Jericho to you with its king and its able warriors. You shall march around the city, all the soldiers going about the city once. You shall do this for six days, and on the seventh day the people shall make the attack, each man going up straight before him."

Then Joshua said to the people, "March around the city and let the armed men pass on before the ark of Jehovah. You shall not shout the battle-cry nor let your voice be heard; not a word shall escape from your mouth until the day I say to you, 'Shout the battle-cry'; then you shall shout!"

So he had the ark of Jehovah carried around the city once; then they returned to the camp and spent the night there. The second day they also marched around the city once and returned to the camp. Thus they did six days. The seventh day they rose early at dawn and made the circuit of the city in the same way, only on that day they marched about the city seven times. The seventh time the priests blew the trumpets, and Joshua said to the people, "Shout the battle-cry; for Jehovah has given you the city. The city and all that is in it shall be sacrificed to Jehovah; only Rahab and those who are with her in her house shall live, because she hid the messengers whom we sent."

So the people shouted the battle-cry and the wall fell down and they went straight up into the city and captured it. But Joshua spared the lives of Rahab and her father's family and all that she had, because she hid the messengers whom Joshua sent to explore Jericho; and they have lived among the Israelites even to this day.

(2a)After Isrealites fought with the Ammonites, David remained in Jerusalem. As he was walking on top of his roof, he saw a woman who was taking her bathe. David lusted after her and made enquiry about the woman. He was told that the woman was Bathsheda, the wife of Uriah, the Hittite.
David sent his servant and they brought the woman; he layed with her and she conceived. David was anxious to cover the sin.
He decided to invite Uriah to return from the battle and go back to his house and sleep with his wife. Uriah returned from the battle, but refused to go back to his house. Every persuasion by David along this line failed. David then connived with his army commander, Joab and Uriah was killed at the battlefield. David took over Uriah's wife.
This action of David displeased God so much that he sent prophet Nathan to rebuke David.

(ii) God would raise evil against him out of his house
(iii) His neighbour would sleep with his wives before his eyes and before all Israel.
