Rahab’s sign

After Hebrew 11:31 and Joshua 2:1-14

They knew to come to me
though how they knew
is unknown.
I’ve waited for their hordes
to approach, knowing God
was with them, knowing they
would prevail, knowing
my city would fall.
So they come, these two,
and I hide them on the roof,
and I lie for them,
and I help them escape.
The scarlet rope is our contract,
the sign of our salvation.
