||Hiericho autem clausa erat atque munita timore filiorum Israhel et nullus egredi audebat aut ingredi
Now Jericho was close shut up and fenced, for fear of the children of Israel, and no man durst go out or come in.
||dixitque Dominus ad Iosue ecce dedi in manus tuas Hiericho et regem eius omnesque fortes viros
And the Lord said to Josue: Behold I have given into thy hands Jericho, and the king thereof, and all the valiant men.
||circuite urbem cuncti bellatores semel per diem sic facietis sex diebus
Go round about the city all ye fighting men once a day: so shall ye do for six days.
||septimo autem die sacerdotes tollant septem bucinas quarum usus est in iobeleo et praecedant arcam foederis septiesque circuibitis civitatem et sacerdotes clangent bucinis
And on the seventh day the priests shall take the seven trumpets, which are used in the jubilee, and shall go before the ark of the covenant: and you shall go about the city seven times, and the priests shall sound the trumpets.
||cumque insonuerit vox tubae 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
And when the voice of the trumpet shall give a longer and broken tune, and shall sound iu your ears, all the people shall shout together with a very great shout, and the walls of the city shall fall to the ground, and they shall enter in every one at the place against which they shall stand.
||vocavit ergo Iosue filius Nun sacerdotes et dixit ad eos tollite arcam foederis et septem alii sacerdotes tollant septem iobeleorum bucinas et incedant ante arcam Domini
Then Josue, the son of Nun, called the priests, and said to them: Take the ark of the covenant: and let seven other priests take the seven trumpets of the jubilee, and march before the ark of the Lord.
||ad populum quoque ait vadite et circuite civitatem armati praecedentes arcam Domini
And he said to the people: Go, and compass the city, armed, marching before the ark of the Lord.
||cumque Iosue verba finisset et septem sacerdotes septem bucinis clangerent ante arcam foederis Domini
And when Josue had ended his words, and the seven priests blew the seven trumpets before the ark of the covenant of the Lord,
||omnisque praecederet armatus exercitus reliquum vulgus arcam sequebatur ac bucinis omnia concrepabant
And all the armed men went before, the rest of the common people followed the ark, and the sound of the trumpets was heard on all sides.
||praeceperat autem Iosue 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
But Josue had commanded the people, saying: You shall not shout, nor shall your voice be heard, nor any word go out of your mouth: until the day come wherein I shall say to you: Cry, and shout.
||circuivit ergo arca Domini civitatem semel per diem et reversa in castra mansit ibi
So the ark of the Lord went about the city once a day, and returning into the camp, abode there.
||igitur Iosue de nocte consurgente tulerunt sacerdotes arcam Domini
And Josue rising before day, the priests took the ark of the Lord,
||et septem ex eis septem bucinas quarum in iobeleis usus est praecedebantque arcam Domini ambulantes atque clangentes et armatus populus ibat ante eos vulgus autem reliquum sequebatur arcam et bucinis personabat
And seven of them seven trumpets, which are used in the jubilee: and they went before the ark of the Lord, walking and sounding the trumpets: and the armed men went before them, and the rest of the common people followed the ark, and they blew the trumpets.
||circumieruntque civitatem secundo die semel et reversi sunt in castra sic fecerunt sex diebus
And they went round about the city the second day once, and returned into the camp. So they did six days.
||die autem septimo diluculo consurgentes circumierunt urbem sicut dispositum erat septies
But the seventh day, rising up early, they went about the city, as it was ordered, seven times.
||cumque septimo circuitu clangerent bucinis sacerdotes dixit Iosue ad omnem Israhel vociferamini tradidit enim vobis Dominus civitatem
And when in the seventh going about the priests sounded with the trumpets, Josue said to all Israel: Shout: for the Lord hath delivered the city to you:
||sitque civitas haec anathema et omnia quae in ea sunt Domino sola Raab meretrix vivat cum universis qui cum ea in domo sunt abscondit enim nuntios quos direximus
And let this city be an anathema, and all things that are in it, to the Lord. Let only Rahab, the harlot, live, with all that are with her in the house: for she hid the messengers whom we sent.
||vos autem cavete ne de his quae praecepta sunt quippiam contingatis et sitis praevaricationis rei et omnia castra Israhel sub peccato sint atque turbentur
But beware ye lest you touch ought of those things that are forbidden, and you be guilty of transgression, and all the camp of Israel be under sin, and be troubled.
||quicquid autem auri et argenti fuerit et vasorum aeneorum ac ferri Domino consecretur repositum in thesauris eius
But whatsoever gold or silver there shall be, or vessels of brass and iron, let it be consecrated to the Lord, laid up in his treasures.
||igitur omni vociferante populo et clangentibus tubis postquam in aures multitudinis vox sonitusque increpuit muri ilico corruerunt et ascendit unusquisque per locum qui contra se erat ceperuntque civitatem
So all the people making a shout, and the trumpets sounding, when the voice and the sound thundered in the ears of the multitude, the walls forthwith fell down: and every man went up by the place that was over against him: and they took the city,
||et interfecerunt omnia quae erant in ea a viro usque ad mulierem ab infante usque ad senem boves quoque et oves et asinos in ore gladii percusserunt
And killed all that were in it, man and woman, young and old. The oxen also, and the sheep, and the asses, they slew with the edge of the sword.
||duobus autem viris qui exploratores missi fuerant dixit Iosue ingredimini domum mulieris meretricis et producite eam omniaque quae illius sunt sicut illi iuramento firmastis
But Josue said to the two men that had been sent for spies: Go into the harlot's house, and bring her out, and all things that are hers, as you assured her by oath.
||ingressique iuvenes eduxerunt Raab et parentes eius fratres quoque et cunctam supellectilem ac cognationem illius et extra castra Israhel manere fecerunt
And the young men went in, and brought out Rahab, and her parents, her brethren also, and all her goods, and her kindred, and made them to stay without the camp.
||urbem autem et omnia quae in ea sunt succenderunt absque argento et auro et vasis aeneis ac ferro quae in aerarium Domini consecrarunt
But they burned the city, and all things that were therein; except the gold and silver, and vessels of brass and iron, which they consecrated unto the treasury of the Lord.
||Raab vero meretricem et domum patris eius atque omnia quae habebat fecit Iosue vivere et habitaverunt in medio Israhel usque in praesentem diem eo quod absconderit nuntios quos miserat ut explorarent Hiericho in tempore illo inprecatus est Iosue dicens
But Josue saved Rahab the harlot, and her father's house, and all she had, and they dwelt in the midst of Israel until this present day: because she hid the messengers whom he had sent to spy out Jericho. At that time, Josue made an imprecation, saying:
||maledictus vir coram Domino qui suscitaverit et aedificaverit civitatem Hiericho in primogenito suo fundamenta illius iaciat et in novissimo liberorum ponat portas eius
Cursed be the man before the Lord, that shall raise up and build the city of Jericho. In his firstborn may he lay the foundation thereof, and in the last of his children set up its gates.
||fuit ergo Dominus cum Iosue et nomen eius in omni terra vulgatum est
And the Lord was with Josue, and his name was noised throughout all the land
