17 And the city shall be [a]an execrable thing, both it, and all that are therein, unto the Lord: only Rahab the harlot shall live, she, and all that are with her in the house: for (A)she hid the messengers that we sent.

18 Notwithstanding, be ye ware of the execrable thing, lest ye make yourselves execrable, and in taking of the execrable thing, make also the host of Israel (B)execrable, and trouble it.

19 But all silver, and gold, and vessels of brass, and iron shall be [b]consecrate unto the Lord, and shall come into the Lord’s treasury.
