SEV Biblia, Chapter 2:16 Y les dijo: Marchaos al monte, para que los que fueron tras vosotros no os encuentren; y estad escondidos allí tres días, hasta que los que os siguen hayan vuelto; y después os iréis por vuestro camino.
Clarke's Bible Commentary - Joshua 2:16 Verse 16. Hide yourselves there three days] They were to travel by night, and hide themselves in the day-time; otherwise they might have been discovered by the pursuers who were in search of them.
John Gill's Bible Commentary Ver. 16. And she said unto them, get ye unto the mountain , etc.] Which was near to the city, and is supposed to be the same which is now called Quarantania: Dr. Shaw, a late traveller in those parts, says f36 , from the mountain Quarantania, the very same perhaps where the two spies concealed themselves, ( Joshua 2:16), we have a distinct view of the land of the Amorites, of Gilead, and of Bashan, the inheritance of the tribes of Reuben and Gad, and of the half tribe of Manasseh--to it joins the mountain of Adummim, and through it the road is cut that leads from Jerusalem to Jericho, where probably it was from the very nature of the situation that the man fell among thieves, ( Luke 10:30); which very probably is the same mountain which Josephus says hung over the city, and was a very barren one; though the singular may be put for the plural, since, as Strabo says f38 , it was surrounded with mountains: lest the pursuers meet you ; on their return from the fords of Jordan, being disappointed: and hide yourselves there three days : some of the Jewish Rabbins, as Jarchi and Kimchi, observe that she had this by the revelation of the Holy Ghost, that the pursuers would return at the end of three days; but the latter more truly remarks, that this was said by conjecture; that Jericho being, as he says, one day from Jordan, and a little more, by going, returning, and searching for the spies, they would be three days in doing it: until the pursuers be returned ; into the city; for until they were they could not be in safety, but must be in danger of being met by them and taken up: and afterward may ye go your way : to Jordan, and so to the camp of Israel, and that without fear.
Matthew Henry Commentary Verses 8-21 - Rahab had heard of the miracles the Lord wrought for Israel. Sh believed that his promises would certainly be fulfilled, and his threatenings take effect; and that there was no way of escape but by submitting to him, and joining with his people. The conduct of Raha proved that she had the real principle of Divine faith. Observe the promises the spies made to her. The goodness of God is often expresse by his kindness and truth, Ps 117:2; in both these we must be follower of him. Those who will be conscientious in keeping promises, ar cautious in making them. The spies make needful conditions. The scarle cord, like the blood upon the doorpost at the passover, recalls to remembrance the sinner's security under the atoning blood of Christ and that we are to flee thereto for refuge from the wrath of a justl offended God. The same cord Rahab used for the saving of thes Israelites, was to be used for her own safety. What we serve and honou God with, we may expect he will bless, and make useful to us.
