“So the people shouted, and the priests blew the trumpets; and it came to pass, when the people heard the sound of the trumpet, that the people shouted with a great shout, and the wall fell down flat, so that the people went up into the city, every man straight before him, and they took the city.” Joshua 6:20 ASV

Illustration of the Israelites entering the city of Jericho. The priests are carrying the Ark of the Covenant and blowing trumpets. Several men are carrying spears and shields. A man, possibly Joshua, rides on a horse, carrying a sword, and gesturing for the people to enter. In the background, the walls of Jericho are falling down.
