Bible: Joshua 7:6-9

7:6 Joshua tore his clothes; 1  he and the leaders 2  of Israel lay face down on the ground before the ark of the Lord until evening 3  and threw dirt on their heads. 4  7:7 Joshua prayed, 5 O, Master, Lord! Why did you bring these people across the Jordan to hand us over to the Amorites so they could destroy us? 7:8 If only we had been satisfied to live on the other side of the Jordan! O Lord, what can I say now that Israel has retreated 6  before its enemies? 7:9 When the Canaanites and all who live in the land hear about this, they will turn against us and destroy the very memory of us 7  from the earth. What will you do to protect your great reputation? 8
