Over in the sixth chapter of Joshua, the bible recalls the narrative of Joshua and his army when they were able to defeat the city of Jericho. Joshua received very clear instructions from the Lord: Each day he and his army were to silently march around the city of Jericho once. On the 7th day, Joshua was instructed to do this seven times, but on the last time they were to shout as they went around the city. If they did this, the Lord promised that the walls surrounding the city would come tumbling down and Joshua and his army would have victory over the city.
