Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. Judges 4:21 in the NKJV tells of a woman taking a tent peg and a hammer and after "softly" approaching a Canaanite army commander who was sleeping, she drove the peg into the man's temple. What was the woman's name?

Answer: Jael

Jael, the wife of Heber, "softly" approached Sisera, a Canaanite army commander, and hammered a tent peg through his head while he was sleeping in her tent. Judges 4 tells of Sisera's army being routed by the Israelites, led by Deborah and Barak, and the army commander running from the battle scene. Sisera ended up at Jael's tent and she pretended to be friendly and sympathetic to his plight so he accepted her offer to rest in his tent. It was while Sisera was sleeping, Jael showed her true side and killed him.

Judges 4:21 in the NKJV explains things this way: "Then Jael, Heber's wife, took a tent peg and took a hammer in her hand, and went softly to him and drove the peg into his temple, and it went down into the ground; for he was fast asleep and weary. So he died."
2. After Boaz had eaten and drunk he went to lie down at the end of the heap of grain when a woman named Ruth "came softly, uncovered his feet, and lay down," as per Ruth 3:7. What nationality was Ruth?

Answer: Moabite

Ruth was a Moabite widow and Boaz was a well-to-do Jewish landowner. Ruth 3:7 in the NKJV states while Boaz was sleeping one night, Ruth "came softly, uncovered his feet, and lay down." The two would become husband and wife and the parents of Obed, the grandfather of King David.

Details about Ruth being a widow from Moab can be found in Ruth 1:3-5
3. The following Old Testament verse, containing the word 'soft', is from the NKJV: "A soft answer turns away wrath, but a harsh word stirs up anger." In what book do you find this witty verse?

Answer: Proverbs

The verse containing the word 'soft' is from Proverbs 15:1 in the NKJV. (Rather than use the words 'a soft answer', the NIV uses 'a gentle answer'.) Proverbs is largely a collection of witty sayings and the like attributed to King Solomon.

The Book of Proverbs appears immediately after the Book of Psalms in both the Hebrew Bible and the Old Testament of the Christian Bible.
4. A Syrian army commander was miraculously cleansed of leprosy after a prophet of God told him to dip himself in the Jordan River seven times with the Easy to Read Version of the Bible stating the man's skin "became soft like the skin of a baby." What was the name of the Syrian army commander who was cleansed of leprosy? (2 Kings 5:14)

Answer: Naaman

Namaan, commander of the Syrian army, was miraculously cleansed of leprosy after Elisha, a prophet of God, told him to dip himself in the Jordan River seven times. 2 Kings 5:14 in the Easy to Read Version of the Bible states Namaan's skin "became pure and clean" and "his skin became soft like the skin of a baby."

For the record, Bible versions such as the KJV, NKJV and NIV do not use the word 'soft' when referring to Naaman's skin. Rather the versions state his flesh was restored like the flesh of a little child.
5. The following Old Testament verse, containing the word 'soft', is from the Easy to Read Version of the Bible: "It is good to play for You on the ten-stringed instrument and lyre and to add the soft sounds of the harp to my praise." In what book do you find this verse?

Answer: Psalms

The verse in question is from Psalm 92:3. While the Easy to Read Version uses the words 'soft sounds', The KJV uses the words 'solemn sound' and the NKJV uses 'harmonious sound'. Meanwhile, the NIV makes reference to the 'melody of the harp'.

Psalm 92 is largely a song of praise to God, honoring Him for His love and faithfulness. However, the author of Psalm 92 is not known.
6. The following verse, containing the word 'soft', is from Psalm 65:10 in the NKJV: "You water its ridges abundantly, You settle its furrows; You make it soft with showers, You bless its growth." Out of the four options below, who is credited with writing Psalm 65?

Answer: David

David is the author of Psalm 65. The noted king of Israel is credited with writing more than seventy of the one hundred and fifty Psalms contained in the Book of Psalms. For the record, there is no documentation that any of the Psalms were written by Jeremiah, Daniel or Ezekiel, all prophets of God.

To put the Verse 10 in context, here's how it reads with Verse 9 from the NKJV: "You visit the earth and water it, You greatly enrich it; The river of God is full of water; You provide their grain, for so You have prepared it.
You water its ridges abundantly, You settle its furrows; You make it soft with showers, You bless its growth."
7. The following Old Testament verse, containing the word 'softly', was written by a major prophet after God spoke to him: "Inasmuch as these people refused the waters of Shiloah that flow softly, and rejoice in Rezin and in Remaliah's son; now therefore, behold, the LORD brings up over them the waters of the River, strong and mighty -- The king of Assyria and all his glory; he will go up over all his channels and go over all his banks." What was the name of the major prophet who wrote these words in the NKJV?

Answer: Isaiah

The verses were written by Isaiah and can be found in Isaiah 8:6-7. The verses are part of a prophecy pertaining to Assyria invading the land. Out of the four options given, Isaiah is the only major prophet. The works of the three others -- Obadiah, Amos and Zephaniah -- are all found in the Minor Prophet section of the Old Testament.
8. When ever a Leviathan is mentioned in the Old Testament, it is commonly regarded as a reference to a monstrous fish. With that background, consider this verse from the NKJV in which God is communicating with a much beleaguered man: "Can you draw out Leviathan with a hook, or snare his tongue with a line which you lower? Can you put a reed through his nose, or pierce his jaw with a hook? Will he make many supplications to you? Will he speak softly to you?" What was the name of the man God made this statement to?

Answer: Job

The statement about the Leviathan and "will he speak softly to you?", was made by God when communicating with Job. The verses featured in the question are from Job 41:1-3 in the NKJV.

A considerable portion of the Book of Job features communication between God and the man who had his world torn apart when he suffered through a series of calamities.

For the record, the Leviathan is also mentioned in Job 3:8, Psalm 74:14, Psalm 104:26 and Isaiah 27:1.
9. In Matthew 11:8 in the NKJV, Jesus is quoted as asking the multitudes: "But what did you go out to see? A man clothed in soft garments? Indeed, those who wear soft clothing are in kings' houses." Who was Jesus referring to when He asked the people who they had seen?

Answer: John the Baptist

In Matthew 11:8 in the NKJV, as well in Luke 7:25, Jesus is quoted as asking the people who had gone to see John the Baptist if they had gone to see "a man clothed in soft garments." John the Baptist, of course, was known for wearing camel hair and a leather belt, two items which would not be classed as "soft garments". John was also known for telling it the way it is.

He proclaimed himself as the forerunner of the Messiah and urged people to repent of their sins. John also strongly denounced the marriage of Herod and his wife Herodias and called the Pharisees a brood of vipers,
10. Here's a verse, containing the word 'softly', from Acts 27:13 in the NKJV: "When the south wind blew softly, supposing that they had obtained their desire, putting out to sea, they sailed close by Crete." What passage is this verse part of?

Answer: Paul's ship being shipwrecked off the coast of Malta

The verse from Acts 27:13 is part of an extensive passage telling of Paul being in a shipwreck off the coast of Malta. As documented in the verse, the voyage started with a gentle breeze but before long the ship would become engulfed in a major storm on the Adriatic Sea.

In fact, Verse 27 states the ship was battered by the storm for fourteen days and nights before it ended up running aground off the coast of Malta. There were two hundred and seventy-six people aboard the ship and miraculously everyone made it to land safely.
