Answers will be posted on Monday.

  1. Do you know who spoke the following statements?
  2. Who were they spoken to?
  3. What were the events that led up to the statement?
  4. Extra Credit: What book of the bible will you find it?

1. "Don't be afraid. Am I in the place of God? You intended to harm me, but God intended it for good to accomplish what is now being done, the saving of many lives."

2. "It is not our custom here to give the younger daughter in marriage before the older one. Finish this daughter's bridal week; then we will give you the younger one also, in return for another seven years of work."

3. “Why didn’t you tell me she was your wife? Why did you say, ‘She is my sister,’ and allow me to take her as my wife? Now then, here is your wife. Take her and get out of here!”

I'm not cheating or using google!

1. Joseph said it to his brothers. They had sold him to slavery (Telling his father he was dead)because they were jealous of his dreams, and the coat his father gave him. He spent yrs in prison before finally having a prominate place in Egypt helping feed those during a famine.

2. Jacob found out that Leah had been substitued for Rachel (or was it Rachel for Leah?) Who spoke it was their father, but I can't remember his name without looking it up in the Bible. He told it to Jacob.

3. In this case Abrah allowed an Egyptian official or Pharoah to take Sarai as his own wife, because Abrah was afraid that they would kill him if they knew. The Egyptian is who said this quote.

4. This must be Ruth's mother-in-law. Her husband and sons were all dead, and she was in a foreign country with no relatives, except her daughters-in-law. She told them to return to their people, but Ruth refused and said the famous quote "your people will be my people." This is used in so many marriages...wonder how many realize this is about the mother-in-law? Extra Credit - the book of Ruth!

5. I have no idea!

This was fun, because for once I was familiar with the stories. I hope I didn't flub any of them up. It was without peeking in Scripture!

OK, here goes Edie:
1. Joseph to his brothers in Genesis. There was a famine and the brothers came to Egypt for grain. They had sold their brother Joseph into slavery because they were jealous of him.
2. Laban to Jacob in Genesis. Jacob loved Rachel and thought he was marrying her but found out it was Leah the older sister.
3. Pharaoh to Abram in Genesis after finding out that Sarah was his wife. Pharaoh had taken her into his palace and God sent serious diseases on Pharaoh and his household.
4. Naomi to the women of Bethlehem in Ruth. She and her daughter-in-law returned after Naomi's sons died.
5. Moses to two Hebrews who were fighting in Exodus.

While I was reading this only Kelly had answered, so I was going to add number 5 to her answers - Moses. By the time I clicked on comments Debbie had taken care of it! My answers are the same as theirs.

I remember reading the stories these past few months but can't remember the details! Bummer!

OK, this might take a while, but I love a challenge!
1. Joseph said this to his brothers after he revealed himself to them when they came to get food during the famine. It comes from Genesis.
2. These words were spoken to Jacob by Rachel and Leah's father - was his name Laban? He said this because he promised Rachel in marriage to Jacob, but secretly gave him Leah instead. Also in Genesis.
3. This was pharoah speaking to Abraham. Abe had told Sarah to say she was his sister because he was afraid he would be killed if it was known she was his wife. Pharoah (and some others?) slept with Sarah and I think they were afraid of the trouble that was going to come upon them as a result. Genesis.
4. Naomi is speaking here to her friends, upon return to Moab - after her husband and sons have died. It can be found in Ruth.
5. This is Moses speaking to a Hebrew slave in Egypt. I don't remember the exact events leading up to this statement, but I do remember Moses had killed another Hebrew prior to this event. The guy who was hitting the other asked, "Are you going to kill me, too?" And I guess this would be found in Exodus.

Now I want to go check it out to see if I remembered everything correctly! This was fun, Edie. Thanks.

I was able to get four out of five! I missed the one about Ruth...knew it as soon as I read the answer :)

Blessing to you, Edie!
