Psalms 78:61

וַיִּתֵּן לַשְּׁבִי עֻזּוֹ וְתִפְאַרְתּוֹ בְיַד צָר

He delivered His strength into captivity and His glory into the adversary's hand.

This verse is referenced by the long-form Tachanun of Mondays and Thursdays. Rashi explains that the strength and glory of this verse refer to the aron and the luchos (the ark and the tablets), which had been captured by the Philistines.
