    also, I don’t know about eglah but the chiram I was refering to was chirah ha’adulami, yehuda’s partner (some say chiram was only his descendant)

    and if you’re talking about the eglah that ehud ben gairah killed, how is that possible?

    THANK YOU 1478!!!

    If anyone is curious, it’s in Yirmiyahu, perek zayin.

    It’s not Yedidya, it’s Yedida.

    I know of one other name for a wife of Dovid, but since I posted the question I’ll let you guys guess it 🙂

    What were the materials in the statue Nevuchadnezar dreamed about, which body parts were made out of which, and what did each represent?

    Wow, sam4321- I should have thought of that one! THat’s not even the one I meant (though there are 18 so I guess it makes sense- however, I still feel stupid because the one you mentioned actually has an impact on the story in tanach and the one I mentioned didn’t.)

    Which two kings of Yehuda cleaned out the Bait Hamikdash?

    Which king of Yisrael caused the galus aseret hashvatim by doing something good? What did he do?

    answer: TZERUYA = MOTHER of Yoav ben Tzeruya [yes! tzeruya was the MOTHER of Yoav not his father – he was called with his mother’s name because she was the sister of DOVID HYAMELECH

    Haman’s mother: Amatlai bat Orvasai (kinda creepy- same name as Avraham’s mother)

    Shimshon’s sister: Nashiyin (or something similar- haven’t seen the same spelling in two places)

    David’s mother: Nitzvat bat Adael

    To repeat my questions:

    Which two kings of Yehuda cleaned out the Bait Hamikdash? (Come on, post-9th grade girls! You know this one!)

    Which king of Yisrael inadvertently caused the galut aseret hashvatim by doing something good? What did he do?

    What were the materials in the statue Nevuchadnezar dreamed about, which body parts were made out of which, and what did each represent?

    I think it was 85 kohanim.

    For some reason I thought it was more.

    Sorry, I made a mistake about the second answer to my question. Forget it.

    What was the name of the man who Meirav wanted to marry?

    What was the name of the man who Shaul forced Michal to marry? What was added onto his name and why?

    Writer: I thought you were referring to Cyrano de Bergourac

    Michal was forced to marry Palti and his name was changed to Paltiel because he never lived with her.
