The Facts (Chapter number: Verse)
Joshua 5 - No mention of any women.
6:17 Joshua cries that the town shall be destroyed except for Rahab and anyone who is with her in her house because she hid the messengers.
6:21 - The Israelites kill everything in the city, man and woman, young and old, donkeys, sheep, and oxen.
6:22-25 - Joshua tells the two men to go get Rahab the prostitute and to brig her out of her house and all who are with her. The men did so and brought out Rahab, her mother, her father, her brother and all who belonged to her. They went outside the city and the Israelites burned the city down. Rahab and her family were spared and lived in Israel ever since.
Joshua 7 - No mention of any women.
8:25 - The total people of Ai who died that day, men and women, was twelve thousand.
Joshua 9 - No mention of any women.
Joshua 10 - No mention of any women.
Joshua 11 - No mention of any women.
War, war, war, war, war. God LOVES him some wars. He also loved conquering people and completely destroying the cities. Wouldn't it be beneficial for the Israelites to let the cities stand and just toss all the shit they don't want outside the city and then burn it there? Why destroy all the already made buildings and structures? Burning them down just means more work. Needless work.
But the Bible and God don't always make that much sense so I dunno what I'm complaining about, really.
Rahab still rocks.
