And they went, and came unto the mountain, and abode there three days, until the pursuers were returned: and the pursuers sought them throughout all the way, but found them not.
And they went, and came unto the mountain,.... Rahab had directed them to, the mountain Quarantania, See Gill on "Joshua 2:16";
and abode there three days; being, no doubt, supplied with food by Rahab; and it might not be three wholly, but one whole day and part of the other two:
until the pursuers were returned; to the city of Jericho, as might reasonably be supposed:
and the pursuers sought them throughout all the way; from Jericho to the fords of Jordan, searching every hedge, field, and village as they went and returned:
but found them not; Rahab having hid them in her house, and then sent them to the mountain, there to remain till the return of the pursuers.
