The city of Jericho feared the God of the Israelites. They had heard how He had freed them from Egypt and helped them cross the Red Sea.
Rahab feared God as well.
The city wanted to capture the spies and destroy them, but not Rahab. Rahab believed that God was the one true God and set out to protect the spies. Her household was saved because of her faith. Rahab serves as a good example of salvation through faith.

“7 And they spoke to all the congregation of the sons of Israel, saying, “The land which we passed through to spy out is an exceedingly good land. 8 If the Lord is pleased with us, then He will bring us into this land and give it to us—a land which flows with milk and honey. 9 Only do not rebel against the Lord; and do not fear the people of the land, for they will be our prey. Their protection has been removed from them, and the Lord is with us; do not fear them.” Numbers 14:7-9
