The book of Joshua involves the city of Jericho.
The Book of Joshua is the sixth book of the Bible. It tells the story of Joshua, who had been Moses' helper during most of the 40 years spent in the desert. After Moses' death Joshua became the leader of the Israelites and it was up to him to lead them into the promised land.
"And the king of Jericho sent unto Rahab, saying, Bring forth the men that are come to thee, which are entered into thine house: for they be come to search out all the country. And the woman took the two men, and hid them, and said thus, There came men unto me, but I wist not whence they were: and it came to pass about the time of shutting of the gate, when it was dark, that the men went out: whither the men went I wot not: pursue after them quickly; for ye shall overtake them."
Rahab had hidden the spies beneath the stalks of flax which covered her roof.
