Rahab was both clever and wise. She saw judgment coming and was able to devise an escape plan for herself and her family before her her city was demolished. As soon as she heard what God had done for the Israelites, she cast her lot with his people, risking her life in an act of faith. She found joy that God had given her, an idolater and prostitute, the opportunity to know him and belong to his people.
