      1  Rahab receives and conceals the two spies sent from
        Shittim.
     8  The covenant between her and them.
    23  Their return and relation.
    
    
    VERSE 1
    - sent.  or, had sent.  Shittim.
       * Nu 25:1; 33:49
    - to spy secretly.
       * Nu 13:2,17-21 Jud 18:2,14,17 Mt 10:16 Eph 5:5
    - even Jericho.
       * Jos 5:10; 6:1-24
    - harlot's house.
      Though the word {zonah} generally denotes a prostitute, yet
      many very learned men are of opinion that it should be here
      rendered an innkeeper or hostess, from {zoon,} to furnish or
      provide food.  In this sense it was understood by the
      Targumist, who renders it, {ittetha pundekeetha,} "a woman, a
      tavern-keeper," and so St. Chrysostome, in his second sermon
      on Repentance, calls her [             .]  The Greek [      ,]
      by which the LXX. render it, and which is adopted by the
      Apostles, is derived from [            ,] to sell, and is also
      supposed to denote a tavern keeper.  Among the ancients, women
      generally kept houses of entertainment.  Herodotus says,
      "Among the Egyptians, the women carry on all commercial
      concerns, and keep taverns, while the men continue at home and
      weave."  The same custom prevailed among the Greeks.

      It is observable that in this enumeration of her kindred,
      there is no mention made of a husband.  It is most likely that
      she was a single woman or widow, who obtained an honest
      livelihood by keeping a house for the entertainment of
      strangers; and not a woman of ill fame, as some have supposed.
      The spies sent on this occasion were certainly some of the
      most confidential persons that Joshua had in his host, and
      their errand was of the greatest importance; is it then not
      most likely that they lodged at an inn?
