God wanted the Israelites to capture the city of Jericho. Now, Jericho had big, tall walls around it. So, God had the people march around the city once a day for six days. On the seventh day, He had them go around seven times.
Then He had them blow their horns and shout. And the walls of Jericho fell down. The Israelites captured the city because they obeyed God.
When did the walls fall down?

Bible Words: Jesus went around doing good
Bible Fun Put some perfume on your child. You may also draw or paste pictures of perfume bottles on paper. Using spray cologne or cotton with perfume on it, dab or spray the pictures.
Remind your child that a woman who had done wrong gave Jesus her perfume. She did it to show she was sorry. Jesus forgave the woman, just as He forgives us when we pray and ask for forgiveness. This was one of the many good things Jesus did. Say the Bible Words above several times with your child.
