"Now Jericho was tightly shut because of the sons of Israel; no one went out and no one came in."
Jericho's walls shut in the wicked for judgment. God's walls shut in the righteous for salvation. They are walls of salvation, walls of peace, walls of love, walls of protection; and the Shepherd Himself keeps the door.
Pray for the peace of Jerusalem:
May they prosper who love you.
May peace be within your walls,
And prosperity within your palaces.
For the sake of my brothers and my friends,
I will now say, "May peace be within you."
In that day this song will be sung in the land of Judah:
"We have a strong city; God will appoint salvation for walls and bulwarks.
For me to live is Christ.
