“Then Yahweh said to Joshua. ‘Do not fear or be dismayed. Take all the fighting men with you. Go up now to Ai. See, I handed over to you the king of Ai with his people, his city, and his land. You shall do to Ai and its king as you did to Jericho and its king. Only its spoil and its livestock you may take as booty for yourselves. Set an ambush against the city, behind it.”
It is time to get going. Yahweh will be on your side and defeat the enemy. Yahweh tells Joshua to attack Ai with all his warriors. Do to Ai what you did to Jericho. This time, you can take some booty from this place. However, follow Yahweh’s instructions to set up an ambush behind Ai.
