Bible Weather Trivia Questions

1. It rained so hard that nobody except my family and I survived.

From Quiz
Hurricane, Cyclone, Typhoon, or Tornado

Answer: Noah

Noah spent 120 years building the ark-- the first ship in Biblical history. People must have laughed at him because they probably had never seen such a creation. They died in the flood and only Noah and his family (eight people in total) survived (Gen 7:23). Oh, and the animals in the ark.

2. According to Exodus 14:21, the LORD created a strong east wind that parted the Red Sea, enabling the Israelites to make their exodus out of Egypt. For how long did the wind blow?

From Quiz The Answer is Blowing in the Wind

Answer: All night

The correct answer is 'all night'. Exodus 14:21-22, in the NKJV, gives this account: "Then Moses stretched out his hand over the sea; and the LORD caused the sea to go back by a strong east wind all that night, and made the sea into dry land, and the waters were divided. So the children of Israel went into the midst of the sea on the dry ground, and the waters were a wall to them on their right hand and on their left." The chapter goes on to tell of the Israelites making it safely to the other side and the sea returning to its full depth, drowning all the Egyptian soldiers who had been pursuing them. The parting of the Red Sea is one of the best known stories in the Hebrew Bible or the Old Testament of the English Bible.

3. In Genesis 9:13, what did God send Noah as a promise of no more flooding?

From Quiz "Weather"ing through the Bible

Answer: Rainbow

God's promise to Noah of no more flooding was the first recorded rainbow in the Bible. God not only sent Noah this promise, but he also sent it to the rest of the land to show that he would not destroy the Earth with rains anymore. The story of Noah and the flood begins in the sixth chapter of Genesis.

4. The Israelites were all stuck between the Red Sea and Pharaoh's men. What did God do to rescue them?

From Quiz Hurricane, Cyclone, Typhoon, or Tornado

Answer: Cause a stiff east wind to part the sea

Moses lifted up his rod and God parted the sea (Ex 14:21). By the time the Israelites stepped upon the seabed, the ground had dried up. When Pharoah's men pursued the Israelites, however, their chariot wheels could not turn properly (Ex 14:25). All of the Egyptians died a watery death.

5. Scripture tells of rain falling continuously on the earth for forty days and forty nights with the entire earth becoming engulfed in a massive flood. According to Genesis 7:24, in the NKJV, how many days did the floodwater 'prevail' on the earth?

From Quiz A Bible Quiz about Rain -- Can You 'Rain' Supreme?

Answer: 150

According to Genesis 7:24, the rain was so intense, the flood waters prevailed on the earth for 150 days. Only after 150 days did the water begin to recede. Genesis 8:3 also tells of the earth being engulfed: "And the waters receded continually from the earth. At the end of the hundred and fifty days the waters decreased. Then the ark rested in the seventh month, the seventeenth day of the month, on the mountains of Ararat. And the waters decreased continually until the tenth month. In the tenth month, on the first day of the month, the tops of the mountains were seen." Genesis 7:4 states the LORD caused it to rain for forty days and forty nights after He decided to destroy mankind because of unrelenting wickedness. Only eight humans survived the flood, as per Genesis 9:18. The survivors were Noah and his wife and their three sons and their wives. The names of the sons were Shem, Ham and Japheth. The names of the four women who were on the ark are not recorded. Noah and his family survived by taking refuge in an ark he had built at the command of the LORD.

6. Numbers 12:10 tells of a woman suddenly becoming leprous, "as white as snow". Scripture goes on to say when Aaron turned and looked toward his sister, "there she was, a leper." What was the woman's name?

From Quiz Here's a Bible Quiz that's a Real 'Snow Job!'

Answer: Miriam

Miriam was afflicted with leprosy and as "white as snow," but ended up being cured and re-instated into the Israelite camp. According to Scripture, the grumbling about her brother Moses' selection of an Ethiopian woman as his wife caused serious problems for Miriam. Numbers 12:5 tells of Miriam and Aaron stepping forward and the LORD coming down in a pillar of cloud. When the pillar of the cloud had disappeared, Aaron noticed his sister Miriam was leprous and "as white as snow." After Moses pleaded to God to cure Miriam of her leprosy, she was cleansed and reinstated into the Israelite camp after a seven-day absence. Scripture indicates Aaron was also complaining about Moses' wife. The fact that Miriam's name appears before Aaron, seems to indicate she was complaining much more than Aaron.

7. According to Scripture, a leader had a dream of seven healthy heads of grain. Then seven thin heads, blighted by the east wind, sprang up after them. Who was the dreamer?

From Quiz The Answer is Blowing in the Wind -- #2

Answer: The Pharaoh

The correct answer is the Pharaoh. Details about his dream are told in the forty-first chapter of Genesis. Genesis 41:5-7 in the NKJV states, "He slept and dreamed a second time; and suddenly seven heads of grain came up on one stalk, plump and good. Then behold, seven thin heads, blighted by the east wind, sprang up after them. And the seven thin heads devoured the seven plump and full heads. So Pharaoh awoke, and indeed, it was a dream." Later his dream would be successfully interpreted by Joseph. He would tell the Pharaoh Egypt would enjoy seven years of bountiful harvests followed by seven years of famine. Genesis 41:40 tells of the Pharaoh being so pleased with Joseph that he made him the second most powerful man in Egypt.

8. According to 1 Kings 19:11, a prophet of God witnessed a super strong wind that "tore into the mountains and broke the rocks in pieces." Who was the prophet?

From Quiz The Answer is Blowing in the Wind

Answer: Elijah

Elijah is the one who witnessed the spectacle, according to Scripture. The 19th chapter of 1 Kings states the LORD commanded Elijah to stand on a mountain and a devastating wind storm took place. As if this wasn't enough, the windstorm was followed by an earthquake and the earthquake was followed by fire. Finally, after all this, Elijah heard a "still small voice." All this took place after Elijah's spectacular victory over 450 prophets of Baal on Mount Carmel and the end of an extended drought, as per the 18th chapter of 1 Kings. The 19th chapter begins by telling of Elijah fleeing from Jezebel and ending up "a day's journey in the wilderness." After the windstorm, the earthquake, the fire and the "still small voice," Elijah received various instructions from the LORD, including one to contact Elisha, the son of Shaphat.

9. In Ezekiel's vision, what came out of the fire he built in Ezekiel 1:13?

From Quiz "Weather"ing through the Bible

Answer: Lightning

Ezekiel's vision took most of the first chapter of Ezekiel. In his vision, Ezekiel saw a storm brewing in the north. Inside the storm were four creatures that looked like humans. Each human had four heads, four wings, and animal hooves. The storm Ezekiel saw also shot lightning from inside it.

10. In the time of the Judges, the Philistines came to invade Israel. What did God do to terrify the Philistines in 1st Samuel?

From Quiz Hurricane, Cyclone, Typhoon, or Tornado

Answer: Send thunder

Because Israel put away their idols and served God only, God fought for them, smiting the Philistines. After this incident, the Philistines dared not bother the Israelites living in the cost during the time Samuel ruled as a judge (1 Sam 7). God must have sent a huge roll of thunder to scare them so!

11. There is a reference to clouds found in 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18. What does it say will be in those clouds?

From Quiz Clouds In The Bible

Answer: those believers in Christ who are dead

For emphasis I have capitalized a portion of the text. "But I would not have you to be ignorant, brethren, concerning them which are asleep, that ye sorrow not, even as others which have no hope. For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, EVEN SO THEM ALSO WHICH SLEEP IN JESUS WILL GOD BRING WITH HIM. For this we say unto you by the word of the Lord, that we which are alive and remain unto the coming of the Lord shall not prevent them which are asleep. For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first: Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together WITH THEM IN THE CLOUDS, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord. Wherefore comfort one another with these words."

12. According to the tenth chapter of Exodus, the eighth plague the LORD unleashed on Egypt was the plague of locusts. From what direction did the wind come that drove the locusts into Egypt? (Exodus 10:13)

From Quiz The Answer is Blowing in the Wind -- #2

Answer: East

According to Exodus 10:13, the locusts were driven into Egypt by an east wind. Exodus 10:12-13 in the NKJV states: "Then the Lord said to Moses, 'Stretch out your hand over the land of Egypt for the locusts, that they may come upon the land of Egypt, and eat every herb of the land -- all that the hail has left.' So Moses stretched out his rod over the land of Egypt, and the Lord brought an east wind on the land all that day and all that night. When it was morning, the east wind brought the locusts." According to verse 19, the LORD created a "very strong west wind" to drive the locusts out of Egypt.

13. A book in the Old Testament tells of a prophet having a vision of "the four winds of heaven stirring up the Great Sea." What is the name of the book?

From Quiz The Answer is Blowing in the Wind

Answer: Daniel

The correct answer is Daniel with the verse in question coming from Daniel 7:2. The seventh chapter of Daniel reads like a passage out of Revelation in the New Testament. For example, here's how Daniel 7:2-8, reads in the NKJV: "Daniel spoke, saying, 'I saw in my vision by night, and behold, the four winds of heaven were stirring up the Great Sea. And four great beasts came up from the sea, each different from the other. The first was like a lion, and had eagle's wings. I watched till its wings were plucked off; and it was lifted up from the earth and made to stand on two feet like a man, and a man's heart was given to it. And suddenly another beast, a second, like a bear. It was raised up on one side, and had three ribs in its mouth between its teeth. And they said thus to it: 'Arise, devour much flesh!' After this I looked, and there was another, like a leopard, which had on its back four wings of a bird. The beast also had four heads, and dominion was given to it. After this I saw in the night visions, and behold, a fourth beast, dreadful and terrible, exceedingly strong. It had huge iron teeth; it was devouring, breaking in pieces, and trampling the residue with its feet. It was different from all the beasts that were before it, and it had ten horns. I was considering the horns, and there was another horn, a little one, coming up among them, before whom three of the first horns were plucked out by the roots. And there, in this horn, were eyes like the eyes of a man, and a mouth speaking pompous words.'"

14. Weather happenings were prevalent during the ten plagues of Egypt. One of the plagues featured a horrendous hailstorm, accompanied by fire. Of the ten plagues, which number plague was this?

From Quiz Weather Occurrences of "Biblical" Proportions

Answer: Seventh

"And Moses stretched forth his rod toward heaven: and the LORD sent thunder and hail, and the fire ran along upon the ground; and the LORD rained hail upon the land of Egypt. So there was hail, and fire mingled with the hail, very grievous, such as there was none like it in all the land of Egypt since it became a nation" (Exodus 9:23-24). Fire and ice. Not a pleasant combination.

15. In Judges 6:37, what was the first sign Gideon asked for to understand God's will for Israel?

From Quiz "Weather"ing through the Bible

Answer: Dew on a fleece

In Judges 6:37, Gideon asked God to give him a sign if He wanted Gideon to save Israel. The sign Gideon wanted was dew on a piece of fleece and only on the fleece. When Gideon woke the next morning and found dew on just the piece of fleece he left out overnight, he asked God again for another sign just to make sure he understood. The sign he asked for the second time was for dew on the ground and not on the fleece. The next morning when Gideon woke up he found dew on the ground and not on the fleece. Gideon then knew that God wanted him to save Israel.

16. In 1 Kings 19, Elijah sees a weather occurrence among other interesting happenings. What is it?

From Quiz Hurricane, Cyclone, Typhoon, or Tornado

Answer: A hurricane/tornado

In 1 Kings 19:11, it says that "great and strong wind was rending the mountains and breaking in pieces the rocks," which sounds similar to what a hurricane does. Following the wind came an earthquake and a fire, after which Elijah felt a gentle blowing. Afterward, God spoke to Elijah and told him to anoint Jehu as king.

17. 1 Chronicles 11:22 tells of one of David's 'mighty men' killing a lion "in the midst of a pit on a snowy day." Who was the lion killer?

From Quiz Here's a Bible Quiz that's a Real 'Snow Job!'

Answer: Benaiah

Every quiz seems to have an extremely difficult question and I suspect this one might qualify for such a dubious distinction. Benaiah, it appears, was an unstoppable warrior who battled on behalf of David. According to Scripture, he also killed killed two "lion-like heroes of Moab" and an Egyptian man "of great height." In fact, Scripture states the man stood five cubits tall. According to notes in the NIV Study Bible, five cubits is the equivalent of about seven feet six inches, or about 2.3 meters. 1 Chronicles 11:22-23, in the NKJV, states this about the mighty warrior: "Benaiah was the son of Jehoiada, the son of a valiant man from Kabzeel, who had done many deeds. He had killed two lion-like heroes of Moab. He also had gone down and killed a lion in the midst of a pit on a snowy day. And he killed an Egyptian, a man of great height, five cubits tall. In the Egyptian's hand there was a spear like a weaver's beam; and he went down to him with a staff, wrested the spear out of the Egyptian's hand, and killed him with his own spear."

18. According to Job 1:19, a "great wind came from across the wilderness" and destroyed a house in which Job's children were eating and drinking. Scripture states all the children were killed. How many children were killed?

From Quiz The Answer is Blowing in the Wind -- #2

Answer: 10

The correct answer is ten. According to Job 1:2, he was the father of seven sons and three daughters. No names are given, however. According to verses 18-19, his children were eating and drinking at their oldest brother's house when "suddenly a great wind came from across the wilderness and struck the four corners of the house, and it fell on the young people," killing all of them. In addition to losing his children and a number of servants, Scripture states Job lost his immense wealth which was the result of ownership in large herds of livestock. The book ends with Job's fortunes changing dramatically for the better. Job 42:12-13, in the NKJV, states: "Now the Lord blessed the latter days of Job more than his beginning; for he had fourteen thousand sheep, six thousand camels, one thousand yoke of oxen, and one thousand female donkeys. He also had seven sons and three daughters."

19. According to Numbers 11:31, God used the wind to bring food to the Israelites who were wandering in the wilderness after their exodus out of Egypt. What was the food?

From Quiz The Answer is Blowing in the Wind

Answer: Quail

The correct answer is quail. Numbers 11:31-32, in the NKJV, states: "Now a wind went out from the LORD, and it brought quail from the sea and left them fluttering near the camp, about a day's journey on this side and about a day's journey on the other side, all around the camp, and about two cubits above the surface of the ground. And the people stayed up all that day, all night, and all the next day, and gathered the quail (he who gathered least gathered ten homers); and they spread them out for themselves all around the camp." However, the next two verses go on to explain the wrath of the LORD was aroused against the Israelites while "the meat was still between their teeth, before it was chewed." As a result, the people were struck with a "very great plague." Notes in the NKJV Study Bible have this interesting information about quail: "In Israel, the quail is a migrating bird that arrives in droves along the shore of the Mediterranean Sea. With their strong flying muscles, these birds can fly rapidly for a short time. When migrating, however, they stretch their wings and allow the wind to bear them along. Sometimes they reach land so exhausted after their long flight that they can be caught by hand." The notes go on to state: "The Hebrew people probably ate dried, salted quail when they were enslaved by the Egyptians. When they longed for meat in the Wilderness of the Sinai, God promised them He would provide enough meat for a month. Then He directed thousands of quail to their camp, where the birds dropped in exhaustion."

20. God and Moses also used the weather to actually END one of the plagues, as it is stated they used a "mighty wind" to drive out this particular plague's results. What was it that the mighty wind was getting rid of?

From Quiz Weather Occurrences of "Biblical" Proportions

Answer: Locusts

"And the LORD turned a mighty strong west wind, which took away the locusts, and cast them into the Red sea; there remained not one locust in all the coasts of Egypt" (Exodus 10:19). This was plague number eight, and Pharaoh was still not finished being stubborn.

21. What was the seventh plague that God cast on the people of Egypt in Exodus 9:23?

From Quiz "Weather"ing through the Bible

Answer: Hail

God sent ten plagues on the people of Egypt as a sign to make Pharaoh release the Israelites. The seventh plague was hailstones so large that they killed animals and people. The story of the ten plagues of Egypt starts in Exodus 7:14 and ends in Exodus 11:1.

22. In Revelation 14:14, John saw a vision of someone that he described as the Son of man sitting on a white cloud and wearing a golden crown. What did John see Him holding in his hand?

From Quiz Clouds In The Bible

Answer: a sharp sickle with which to reap the earth

This first part of this text seems to speak of Jesus "reaping" His people, while the second part seems to show that the non-believers are sent through judgment. "And I looked, and behold a white cloud, and upon the cloud one sat like unto the Son of man, having on his head a golden crown, and in his hand a sharp sickle. And another angel came out of the temple, crying with a loud voice to him that sat on the cloud, Thrust in thy sickle, and reap: for the time is come for thee to reap; for the harvest of the earth is ripe. And he that sat on the cloud thrust in his sickle on the earth; and the earth was reaped. And another angel came out of the temple which is in heaven, he also having a sharp sickle. And another angel came out from the altar, which had power over fire; and cried with a loud cry to him that had the sharp sickle, saying, Thrust in thy sharp sickle, and gather the clusters of the vine of the earth; for her grapes are fully ripe. And the angel thrust in his sickle into the earth, and gathered the vine of the earth, and cast it into the great winepress of the wrath of God. And the winepress was trodden without the city, and blood came out of the winepress, even unto the horse bridles, by the space of a thousand and six hundred furlongs."

23. According to Proverbs 27:15-16, what is as difficult to restrain as the wind?

From Quiz The Answer is Blowing in the Wind -- #2

Answer: A contentious wife

According to Proverbs in the NKJV, a contentious wife is as difficult to restrain as the wind itself. (The NIV uses the word quarrelsome.) Here's how Proverbs 27:15-16 reads in the NKJV: "A continual dripping on a very rainy day And a contentious woman are alike; Whoever restrains her restrains the wind, And grasps oil with his right hand."

24. According to Psalm 1:4 in the KJV and the NKJV, a certain type of people are like chaff, which is blown away by the wind. Who are the people?

From Quiz The Answer is Blowing in the Wind

Answer: The ungodly

According to Psalm 1:4 in the KJV and the NKJV, the ungodly will be like chaff, blown away by the wind. (The NIV uses the word 'wicked' rather than 'ungodly'.) Psalm 1 consists of six verses. Here's how it reads in its entirety: "Blessed is the man Who walks not in the counsel of the ungodly, Nor stands in the path of sinners, Nor sits in the seat of the scornful; But his delight is in the law of the LORD, And in His law he meditates day and night. He shall be like a tree Planted by the rivers of water, That brings forth its fruit in its season, Whose leaf also shall not wither; And whatever he does shall prosper. The ungodly are not so, But are like the chaff which the wind drives away. Therefore the ungodly shall not stand in the judgment, Nor sinners in the congregation of the righteous. For the LORD knows the way of the righteous, But the way of the ungodly shall perish."

25. In Exodus 19, Moses had another occurrence with Biblical weather when he went up the mountain to receive God's Ten Commandments. What mountain was surrounded by "thunder and lightning" and a "veil of clouds" during Moses' climb upward?

From Quiz Weather Occurrences of "Biblical" Proportions

Answer: Mount Sinai

"...there were thunders and lightnings, and a thick cloud upon the mount, and the voice of the trumpet exceeding loud; so that all the people that was in the camp trembled" (Exodus 19:16). The time that Moses was up on the mountain apparently was too long, as the people decided to form their own god. This didn't sit well with God or Moses.

26. What made the house fall down on Job's family in Job 1:19?

From Quiz "Weather"ing through the Bible

Answer: Mighty wind

In the first chapter of Job, his children and grandchildren were eating dinner at the home of Job's oldest son when a mighty wind blew the house down on top of them, killing them all. A servant of Job's came to tell him this after three other servants came to tell him of his animals and other servants being killed in his fields.

27. According to 1 Kings 17:1, a prophet of God proclaimed to King Ahab there would not be dew or rain, "except at my command." Who was the plucky prophet who rained on Ahab's parade?

From Quiz A Bible Quiz about Rain -- Can You 'Rain' Supreme?

Answer: Elijah

Elijah is the correct answer. In 1 Kings 17:1, the prophet of God boldly proclaimed to Ahab: "As the LORD God of Israel lives, before whom I stand, there shall not be dew nor rain these years, except at my word." According to Scripture, the drought went on for three years. 1 Kings 18:1, in the NKJV, states: "And it came to pass after many days that the word of the LORD came to Elijah, in the third year, saying, 'Go, present yourself to Ahab, and I will send rain on the earth.'" The chapter goes on to tell of the drought ending after Elijah's spectacular victory over 450 prophets of Baal on Mount Carmel.

28. Psalm 51 is one of more famous Psalms written by David. Verse 7, in the NKJV, states: "Purge me with hyssop, and I shall be clean; Wash me, and I shall be whiter than snow." Shortly after what event in his life did David write the words?

From Quiz Here's a Bible Quiz that's a Real 'Snow Job!'

Answer: After he committed adultery with Bathsheba and killed her husband.

After he committed adultery with Bathsheba and killed her husband Uriah is the correct answer. With the exception of Psalm 23 (The LORD is my Shepherd), Psalm 51 is arguably the most popular Psalm. According to Scripture, David wrote Psalm 51 after he was confronted by Nathan the prophet about his guilt. The words to the Psalm have been set to modern music and it has become a popular hymn for Christians around the world. Here's how the Psalm reads in its entirety in the NKJV: "Have mercy upon me, O God, According to Your lovingkindness; According to the multitude of Your tender mercies, Blot out my transgressions. Wash me thoroughly from my iniquity, And cleanse me from my sin. "For I acknowledge my transgressions, And my sin is always before me. Against You, You only, have I sinned, And done this evil in Your sight -- That You may be found just when You speak, And blameless when You judge. "Behold, I was brought forth in iniquity, And in sin my mother conceived me. Behold, You desire truth in the inward parts, And in the hidden part You will make me to know wisdom. "Purge me with hyssop, and I shall be clean; Wash me, and I shall be whiter than snow. Make me hear joy and gladness, That the bones You have broken may rejoice. Hide Your face from my sins, And blot out all my iniquities. "Create in me a clean heart, O God, And renew a steadfast spirit within me. Do not cast me away from Your presence, And do not take Your Holy Spirit from me. "Restore to me the joy of Your salvation, And uphold me by Your generous Spirit. Then I will teach transgressors Your ways, And sinners shall be converted to You. "Deliver me from the guilt of bloodshed, O God, The God of my salvation, And my tongue shall sing aloud of Your righteousness. O LORD, open my lips, And my mouth shall show forth Your praise. For You do not desire sacrifice, or else I would give it; You do not delight in burnt offering. The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit, A broken and a contrite heart -- These, O God, You will not despise. "Do good in Your good pleasure to Zion; Build the walls of Jerusalem. Then You shall be pleased with the sacrifices of righteousness, With burnt offering and whole burnt offering; Then they shall offer bulls on Your altar."

29. A book in the Hebrew Bible, or the Old Testament of the Christian Bible, tells of a woman yearning for the north wind and the south wind to blow on her garden. What's the name of the book?

From Quiz The Answer is Blowing in the Wind -- #2

Answer: Song of Solomon

The correct answer is Song of Solomon with the passage being the sixteenth verse of the fourth chapter. Here's the verse, as per the NKJV: "Awake, O north wind, And come, O south! Blow upon my garden, That its spices may flow out. Let my beloved come to his garden And eat its pleasant fruits." Notes in the NKJV Study Bible state this about the passage: "The bride is now ready to accept her lover for the first time to her garden. She calls on the wind to blow through. That is, she is ready to make love to her husband for the first time."

From Quiz The Answer is Blowing in the Wind

Answer: Ezekiel

The correct answer is Ezekiel. In addition to scattering one-third of his hair into the wind, Scripture states Ezekiel was also told to burn one-third of the hair he removed from his hair and face and to strike a sword around the remaining one-third. Here's how Ezekiel 5:1-4 reads in the NKJV: "And you, son of man, take a sharp sword, take it as a barber's razor, and pass it over your head and your beard; then take scales to weigh and divide the hair. You shall burn with fire one-third in the midst of the city, when the days of the siege are finished; then you shall take one-third and strike around it with the sword, and one-third you shall scatter in the wind: I will draw out a sword after them. You shall also take a small number of them and bind them in the edge of your garment. Then take some of them again and throw them into the midst of the fire, and burn them in the fire. From there a fire will go out into all the house of Israel." Notes in the NKJV Study Bible have this to say about the highly unusual passage: "Shaving the head was an act showing shame or disgrace in Hebrew culture. ....This message was telling the people that they were about to be humiliated and defiled." The notes go on to state: "Each citizen of Jerusalem would suffer one of the three fates depicted by each of the three mounds of the equally measured shorn hair: 1) Some would be burned along with the city or would die from plague, famine or other siege conditions; 2) some would be murdered by the sword during the attack; 3) and some would be scattered in the wind -- referring to the Exile."
