THE HOLY BIBLE Douay-Rheims

Notes on Book o fJosue (Author Bishop Richard Challoner (ed.))

6:26 Cursed, etc: Jericho, in the mystical sense, signifies iniquity: the sounding of the trumpets by the priests, the preaching of the word of God; by which the walls of Jericho are thrown down, when sinners are converted; and a dreadful curse will light on them who build them up again.
