-Nehemiah 9:1-2 (New American Bible)
[1] “ On the twenty-fourth day of this month, the ISRAELITES GATHERED TOGETHER FASTING AND IN SACKCLOTH, THEIR HEADS COVERED WITH DUST. [2] Those of Israelite descent separated themselves from all who were of foreign extraction, then stood forward and confessed their sins and the guilty deeds of their fathers. “
.
In this passage, the people of Israel put a dust ashes on their heads as a sign of grief as well as they express repentance for their sins and the sins of their ancestors.
