    Let’s start a tanach trivia thread! Whoever answers a question right can ask the next one. Let’s see how obscure we can get. I’ll start. How did King Menashe die?

    Please don’t jump to the next question until the first one was answered. It gets confusing and believe it or not, I do like learning the answers.

    Can we define where answers are allowed to come from so two people don’t answer with opposite sides of a machlokes?

    I vote for passuk and targum only. Any other ideas?

    Wasn’t it because he had to much blood on his hands? To chanie’s question I mean.

    R’ Popa, with all due respect, see 2 Divrei Hayamim 22:7-8:

    And David said to Solomon, “My son, as for me, it was in my heart to build a House in the name of Hashem my God. But the word of Hashem was upon me, saying: ‘You have shed much blood, and you have waged great wars; you shall not build a House in My Name because you have shed much blood to the ground before Me.

    Also what’s snopes?

    Ok, you got me.

    But I’ve been making up answers, names, questions, times, bamas, everything, for this whole thread.

    I think popa indeed didn’t take his pill today.

    Now, sonny, you listen to what I have to say!

    A- It’s not Purim today (although it’s erev yom HAkipurim)

    B- You made me think I was an am haaretz

    C- If anybody didn’t read your last post, you were oiver on ???? ??? ???? on erev Yom Kippur.

    D- Don’t you ever do this again!

    E- Don’t you EVER EVER forget to take your pill again!

    F- POTCH!!

    Now, straight into bed, sonny! You have to get up early tomorrow!

    yitayningwut; Even though ??? said that to ????, it is not the correct answer. All his war’s were either a ???? or ????. The answer is that ??? ???? was on such a high madrega, had he built the ??? ????? it could never have been destroyed, and Hashem would have ?”? taken out his wrath on ??? ????? instead.

    PBA: Why are you making these up and how is it not Megaleh Panim Batorah (especially because you tried to pass it off as truth and a lot of people thought you were serious)?

    MOC: According to several Rishonim Mid’var Sheker Tirchak is not a Lav against lying.

    Chanie: Do you have a source for that? As far as I know that Midrash goes hand in hand with the “Midrash” that Dovid Hamelech built one wall of the Beis Hamikdash (the Kosel) and that is what it was never destroyed. Of course, the Kosel was never part of the Beis Hamikdash so that “Midrash” is clearly not really a Midrash.

    Sam2: You’re right. But I still think popa’s behavior is far from nice. (Why, some of us will forever think lavan’s wife was called Yavala!)

    I have another tanach question: This one is based on parshas acharei mos, and parshas ki tezte.

    How does a ??? ??? become pattur from yibum and assur to the yuvum?

    Is it that she is just pattur because of the passuk ?????, and then she is therefore an eishes ach?

    Or is it that the passuk of ????? actually makes her an ervah?

    (In other words, why is knowing tanach limited to the stories? What about the rest of it?

    (In more words, there is no reason to be embarrassed if you thought I was telling the truth. I was pretty convincing. Sam2 is just made he didn’t think of it.)

    And this was revenge on adorable for not telling us her funny line about the stale bread last night.

    Next question: All the ???? were supposed to live 180 years. Only ???? achieved that distinction. ????? we know lost 5 years so that he should not witness ??? showing his true colors. Why did ???? live for only 147 years? Why did Hashem deduct 33 years of his life?

    Chanie: On what do you base your assumption that all the Avos were supposed to live for 180 years? That’s also interesting; I will look into if another source for that exists. So far every one I have seen referenced talks about the “Midrash” by the Kosel, but it’s possible. I know the Family Midrash Says on Shmuel quotes it if I recall correctly, maybe I can track down the source through there.

    Sam2: It’s a rashi on the verse where Yakov tells Pharaoh that his life was “short bad and shorter than my fathers'” I don’t know who Rashi is quoting.

    popa: The answers to your questions, as well as the questions themselves, are all found in Meseches Bava Mayseh daf alef amud gimmel. (except for l’tzror)

    On what day did all the olei bavel agree to a ban on intermarriage?

    Sam2: I read it years ago in Sefer Beraishis “The Medrash Says”. Next week, IY”H, I will look it up and give you the source. BTW, the answer to my question is not found in that sefer.

    ItcheSrulik; The question was, why 33 years?

    33 for the amount of words he spoke to Pharoah complaining about his hard life

    #1217419

    Member

    flyer; Very close but it goes a little further. The amount of words that he spoke to ???? was 25 words. The additional 9 words is the Posuk right before. ????? ???? ?? ???? ??? ??? ??? ????. Hashem said to ????; “After all the kindness that I did for you, you have no right to look so old”. Therefore being that ???? asked him his age, being that he never saw such an old looking man, he was punished for those 9 words as well.

    While Rabbi Sherman may argue, the Radak understands it plainly:

    ?? ???? ???? –

    ?? ?? ????? ???? ?? ??? ??? ??? ??? ?? ????, ?? ???? ?? ????? ??? ????? ????.

    ?? ??? ????? ??? ?? ??, ??? ?? ?? ??? ???? ???? ????? ???? ????? ???? ??? ?????? ????? ?????, ?????? ???? ???? ???? ???? ?? ?? ????? ??? ????? ??? ???, ??? ?? ????? ??? ????, ?? ???? ?????? ??? ??? ????, ??? ????: [???? ????] (???????) ??? ??? ??? ????, ?? ???? ????? ??? ??? ???? ??? ??? ??? ??????, ???? ???? ??? ????? ????? ??????? ?? ?? ?? ?? ?? ???? ????? ?? ?????? ????? ?????? ??? ????? ?????? ?????? ???? ????? ???? ?????? ?? ???? ??? ????, ??? ???? ?????? ?? ?????? ???? ????, ???? ?????? ??? ????? ???? ????? ?????? ??? ?????? ????, ??? ????? ????? ???? ????? ????? ????? ??? ?????? ????? ???? ??? ????? ?? ???? ???? ??? ???? ????.

    I’m confident you’ll be able to determine a few more erroneous answers…

    perhaps keep this as pba’s thread and either start another or continue on the previous one…

    just a suggestion

    I sure hope m22 isn’t thinking she’s learning all that much over here on this thread…

    New Question:

    For how many years did ??? ????? enjoy total ????? on the highest madreiga? This does not include his younger years when he only had ??? ?????.

    For the record there are no Seforim that discuss it. It is purely a mathematical calculation.

    How did Menashe die?

    What was the name of Asniel ben Kenaz’s wife?

    What was the name of Yehoshua’s wife?

    What was Achav’s palace made out of?

    How long did it usually take to get from Sheva (as in Malkas Sheva) to Yerushalayim? How long did it take her when she went to Shlomo?

    Who was Lapidos?

    How many sons did Tziva (the servant of Mifiboshes) have?

    No, I did NOT get these questions off a website, unlike some of the questions here (I made up EVERY ONE OF THEM myself!)

    I prefer to give the answer. It’s Barak. You see, back when I was learning Navi we understood that Barak was the husband of Devorah, and a valiant man – but not the shofet. That’s not what they teach anymore, at least not according to the poster I saw. I wonder when the new edition of Nach comes out…
