The passage also makes mention of the Israelites conquering another municipality spelled entirely ion the left side of your keyboard and that placename is Gezer.

2. According to Genesis 19:14, who warned his two sons-in-law to leave Sodom before the city's impending destruction but they thought he was simply joking?

Answer: Lot

Genesis 19:14 tells of Lot urging his two unnamed sons-in-law to flee Sodom to escape the pending destruction. The verse in the NKJV quotes Lot as stating: "Get up, get out of this place; for the LORD will destroy this city!" However, the verse goes on to state Lot's sons-in-law thought he was joking and did not follow his advice.

Scripture goes on to tell of Lot, his wife and their two daughters fleeing the destruction. However, Lot's wife looked back on the destruction, contrary to divine instructions, and ended up being turned into a pillar of salt.

6. According to Esther 1:14 in the NKJV, Ahasuerus, king of Persia, had seven princes who "ranked highest in the kingdom." One of the seven princes had a name that begins and ends with the same letter. Who was the prince?

Answer: Admatha

Admatha was one of seven princes of Persia who were close to Ahasuerus, also known as Xerxes in the NIV. 1 Esther 1:10-21 in the NKJV tells of Ahasuerus asking the seven princes what course of action should he taken after Queen Vashti refused his request to parade before the men to display her beauty.

Memucan, one of the princes, is quoted as telling Ahasuerus that Vashti should be deposed for her rebellious act. Memucan was also successful in getting Ahasuerus to issue a proclamation that "all wives will honor their husbands, both great and small."

With Vashti removed from the scene, it set the stage for Esther to become queen.

Little is known about Admatha as his name appears in only Esther 1:14 using versions such as the KJV, NKJV and NIV.

Nebuzaradan was the captain of the guard who allowed Jeremiah, a prophet of God, to go free after the Babylonians conquered Jerusalem. Details about Nebuzaradan's decision can be found in Jeremiah 39:11-18. One of Nebuzaradan's assistants was Nebushasban, another name that starts and ends with the letter 'N'.

Despite major opposition from various quarters, Nehemiah was able to quickly re-build the walls around Jerusalem so people like Hazaiah could have safety and protection.

Little is known about Hazaiah as his name appears in only Nehemiah 11:5.

Answer: 2 Peter

The verse is from 2 Peter 1:19. (While the NIV also uses the term 'morning star', the KJV does not, rather using 'day star'.) The verse is part of a passage in which Peter writes about the ever trustworthy prophetic word. See 2 Peter 1:16-21. Peter was one of the original Twelve Disciples.

Hypocrites! You know how to discern the face of the sky, but you cannot discern the signs of the times." Who made the statement?

Answer: Jesus

The statement in the Gospel of Matthew 16:2-3 was made by Jesus while He was addressing the Pharisees. In a nutshell, Jesus told them they could interpret the weather but when it came to spiritual things they were clueless. For more, see Matthew 16:12-4.

The Gospel was written by Matthew, also known as Levi, and one of the original Twelve Disciples.
