Correct—- but what’s weird is I was only thinking of one of those (the king of Moav). The other one I was thinking of was Shaul almost killing Yonatan (albeit against his will) for eating honey on a fast day.

We are all familiar with Shmuel Hanavi. Who else in tanach has the name shmuel? Who are the two people with the name shaul besides Shaul Hamelech? How many people in the torah have the name Chanoch? What are Shlomo Hamelech’s other names(he has four others mentioned in tanach)? And now a hard one: What shevet was the navi Hoshea from?January 12, 2012 7:14 pm at 7:14 pm #1159851
Shlomo,yedidiah,koheles and R’ Yehoshua Ben Levi added agur,yakeh,lemuel,and itiel.January 12, 2012 7:18 pm at 7:18 pm #1159852
Hoshea was from Reuvien.Just like Reuvien was first to repent so too Hoshea will be the first to urge bnei Yisrael to do tshuva.January 12, 2012 7:22 pm at 7:22 pm #1159853
Lemuel (I’m pretty sure)
Is there another one in Tanach? I know of others but I don’t think they’re in Tanach.January 12, 2012 7:23 pm at 7:23 pm #1159854

Yeshayahu was from Yehudah. His father Amotz was King Amatzia’s brother. So here’s another question: who else in tanach has the name Amatzia? I’m still waiting for the other Shmuel. Here’s another question(hard): Who was Chavakuk’s mother(she is mentioned in tanach,though not where one would think)?January 13, 2012 5:13 am at 5:13 am #1159858
Shumanite woman story with Elisha. Who was his father,and was he a kohen levi or yisroel?January 13, 2012 8:24 pm at 8:24 pm #1159859
A kohen of the egel in beit el— in Amos
I just helped someone study Amos for their midterm!January 16, 2012 3:00 am at 3:00 am #1159860
I meant Amotz, just to clarify.
Come on, we need to wake this thread up a bit!
Who was Yehudis? (bearing in mind, of course, that this is a TANACH trivia thread…)January 16, 2012 4:36 am at 4:36 am #1159861
Daughter of Yochanan Kohen Gadol.January 16, 2012 8:29 am at 8:29 am #1159862
Shmuel is found in Parshas Masei. The Yehudis of Tanach is one of Esav’s wives. Here’s another 2 questions: 1)What do Yirmiya, Tzefania, and Chulda have in common? 2)What do Noach, Daniel, and Iyov have in common?January 16, 2012 7:03 pm at 7:03 pm #1159863
Yirmiyah, Tzefanya and Chuldah were the major neviim in the time of the Churban Bayit Rishon. Yirmiyah spoke in the marketplace, Tzefanya prophesied in the beit medrash, and Chuldah taught from her home by Shaar Chuldah.
Thanks for giving me a review for my navi midterm in two days!January 16, 2012 7:17 pm at 7:17 pm #1159864
Writer: Indeed you did,I was thinking the story of Yehudis is not in kesuvim rather in antioachis,gave it a try anyways even though it seemed to easy.January 16, 2012 7:24 pm at 7:24 pm #1159865
Sorry about that, Sam! That sounded kind of… infantile of me.

Writersoul: Hatzlacha on your midterm. Here’s another two questions:1) What was Daniel’s babylonian name? 2)What was Tzidkiyahu’s original name?January 16, 2012 7:30 pm at 7:30 pm #1159867

I am not 100% sure on this,but I would say Ido based on a Pirkei D’Reb Eliezer who says Shunamite was the wife of Ido.January 17, 2012 12:16 am at 12:16 am #1159873
2sense:What could I have been thinking of? I just checked and what I said makes no sense whatsoever. Oh well.
Sam and 2sense: During all of the stages, Chizkiyahu was king.
Sam: not those, the alternate names. One, as mentioned above (by Menashe) is Torat Kohanim for Vayikra. If there’s more than one for a sefer say both.January 17, 2012 6:39 am at 6:39 am #1159874
Bereishis = Sefer Hayashor(gemara AZ 25)
Shemos = Chumash Sheini(Behag)or Sefer Hageula(Ramban)
Vayikra = Sefer Cohanim
Bamidbar = Chumash Hapekudim
Devarim = Mishneh TorahJanuary 17, 2012 9:13 pm at 9:13 pm #1159875
How many Jews were there at the counting in Parshat Naso? In Parshat Pinchas?January 18, 2012 12:12 am at 12:12 am #1159876
I think you meant parshas bamidbar,bamidbar = 603,550, leviem = 22,000. In pinchas = 601,730, leviem = 23,000.January 18, 2012 1:28 am at 1:28 am #1159877
Re-post:Out of the 10 makkos who brought which ones,and for how long did each makka last for?January 18, 2012 9:14 am at 9:14 am #1159878
Aharon brought the first three, Hashem brought the next two, Moshe brought the next four, Hashem brought the last. (Aharon helped in the initial stage of sh’chin). Each makka lasted a quarter of a month(Rashi shmos 8 25), with the exception of choshech which lasted three days according to a simple reading of shmos 11 22-23, or six days according to Rashi there. (It could be the last day happened at the yam suf, see shmos 14 20). Noach, Daniel and Iyov are all mentioned in the same pasuk(Yechezkel 14- 14and20). Yes, there actually is such a pasuk. See commentators there for explanation. Now, another few questions: 1)What shevet was Ovadia from? 2)Which were the three main Arei Miklat in Eretz Yisrael proper(not eiver hayarden)? 3)Why couldn’t David Hamelech himself build the Bais Hamikdash? 4)(hard)Which people in tanach were a nazir(besides shimshon)?January 18, 2012 7:22 pm at 7:22 pm #1159879
sam4321: Correct- and yes, as you probably have been able to tell my brain is fried. Midterms will do that to a person.
longarekel: I like your new screen name! 1) He was a ger from Edom 3) because if he had built it, it could not have been destroyed— we would have been destroyed instead if we deserved a punishment 4) Shmuel was a nazirJanuary 18, 2012 8:12 pm at 8:12 pm #1159880
Longarekel: I was thinking of Shemos Rabbah regarding the makkos
Chevron B’Yehuda, Shecehm B’Har Ephraim, Kadesh B’Har NaftaliJanuary 19, 2012 11:22 am at 11:22 am #1159881
writersoul: Thanks! You have good taste. The reason given in tanach is that David was Ish Damim-involved with wars and killed many people. Therefore the Bais Hamikdash which lengthens people’s lives could not be built by David(similar to not using metal on the mizbeach, and in fact no metal was heard in the building of the entire bais hamikdash). Avshalom too was a nazir. sam: Please elaborate on Shemos Rabbah. Here’s another 2 questions: What was Nechemia’s job in the palace? Who was the last kohen gadol of the bayis rishon?January 19, 2012 3:00 pm at 3:00 pm #1159882
Longarekel: the rashi that says each makka was a quarter of a month is not in shemos 8, 25 but in shemos 7,25 which is based on that pasuk that says 7 days.
NEW QUESTION: From where do we know that one getting married should check out the kalla’s brothers? You must bring a source! (Clue: Its not Lavan – unless you find a source. I couldnt find the source with lavan but found the source someplace else).January 19, 2012 3:53 pm at 3:53 pm #1159883
it says Aharon married BatSheva the brother of Nachshon(ben Aminodov. So the question is, why mention her brother? Answer is because one should check out what kind of person his Kallah’s brother is before he marries her.
i can’t remember the source, my brain is still sleeping….January 19, 2012 4:12 pm at 4:12 pm #1159884
The source is the rashi on shmos perek vav posuk 23. This week’s parsha.
My question is how is it possible to read the exact same haftorah two Shabbosos in a row?January 19, 2012 5:38 pm at 5:38 pm #1159885
algor – shabbos chanuka when there are two of them???
okay, now i have one. what are 5 words in a row that start with a “vav” in chumash?January 19, 2012 5:42 pm at 5:42 pm #1159886
Shticky Guy: In my edition of the chumash it is in 8 25. Algor: When Purim Mukafim falls out on shabbos the Mukafim read Pakod Pakaditi for parshas zachor and then again the following shabbos on Purim. Great riddle. Another question: Which foreign country backed the assasination of Gedalya? (My previous two questions are still pending).January 20, 2012 2:00 am at 2:00 am #1159887
Longarekel: yes, but that answer is incomplete. The question would still remain, why would he be forbidden from doing a mitzvah because he performed a mitzvah? The answer I gave was the rest of the answer.
BaalHabooze; her name was ELIsheva.
Longarekel: 1) he was the butler/wine taster 3) Amon
Challenge- name all of the shoftim without looking them up. You’re on your honor!
How many years did Moshe live in Midyan?January 20, 2012 4:49 pm at 4:49 pm #1159888
Longarekel: great answer. That is it.
Writersoul: we know them through a song that we learned in school.January 20, 2012 6:36 pm at 6:36 pm #1159889
Seraya(Ezra’s father)was the last kohen gadol.He was killed by the babylonians. Hashem Yinkom Damo. Another question: Who are the two nevi’im named zecharia?January 22, 2012 9:16 am at 9:16 am #1159890
Zecharia Ben Yehoiada,Zecharia Ben BerechiahJanuary 23, 2012 9:16 pm at 9:16 pm #1159891
Longarekel why in that rashi that we talked about does he say the makka was for a ‘reva chodesh’ when the pasuk says 7 days? Besides being an unusual expression it is not the same, as months have 29 or 30 days so a quarter of that is more than 7 days.January 23, 2012 9:37 pm at 9:37 pm #1159892
Shticky Guy: Shemos Rabbah learns 7 days of makka and 24 days of warning or vice versa.January 23, 2012 10:34 pm at 10:34 pm #1159893
4)(hard)Which people in tanach were a nazir(besides shimshon)?
Avshalom, that’s how he got caught, when his long nazarite hair got tangled in a tree.January 23, 2012 11:34 pm at 11:34 pm #1159895
MDG- would be a tough but im learning nazir.
How did Yehudah ascertain that tamar was jewish?January 24, 2012 1:18 am at 1:18 am #1159896
Sam thanx for your answer but my question was if the pasuk says the makka lasted 7 days why does rashi give a different time span saying it lasted for of a quarter of a month which is longer than what the pasuk says.
Also, if it took makkas kinim to force paraoh’s magicians to recognize that it came from Hashem and not kishuf then what was the point of bringing the first two plagues before kinim?January 24, 2012 3:02 am at 3:02 am #1159897
Because Rashi knew the Medrash I am assuming, and a quarter was the makka and the rest(24 days ) was a warning.
With regard to your second question I think the Medrash Tanchuma answers it. The Medrash says the 10 makkas are equal to the strategy of laying siege on a city(dam = cut water supply,frogs = make loud noise,kinnim = shooting arrows…).January 24, 2012 12:30 pm at 12:30 pm #1159898
??? ???? does NOT equal 7 days as a ???? is not 28 days but 29 or 30.
With regard to my second question, ???? I found an answer in a gevaldiger ??? ????? ????? on the ???? by ??? ??? of ???? ?? ???: ?? ???? ?????
??? ???? ?? ?? ??????
I was looking thru the ?????? to find ??? in why ??? ??? is called ?? ??????, and more puzzlingly, what could ???? mean when he writes that ????? ???? ???? ?????? ????? ???? ?? ????? , how on earth does that fit in here by saying ?? ?????? refers to ??? ??? ???
Answer to everything: The ??? ????? says that even though another 3 ???? were coming but this one would be equal to all the PREVIOUS ???? brought so far as they got progressively worse, with ??? ?????? being the worst. This is why it called the current plague ?? ?????? (though according to that logic, every plague was worse than the one preceeding it so every plague could have been referred to as ?? ???????) This explains the order of the ???? and why ?? brought the first two plagues before ?????. Obvoiusly ?? was not as bad as ????? which was not as bad as ????? so it had to be in that order.
And my question why not bring ????? first to show that even ?? + ????? were not down to ????? but from ??, the ??? ????? continues that ???? was convinced that all the ???? were ????? and not from ?? – even by ????? when his magicians told him ???? ?-????? ??? he just assumed that ??? ????? were even greater magicians and could create something on a level that even his magicians could not achieve. Only by ??? ??? did even he have to admit that it must be from ?? as it was bringing hail and fire down from the heavens. This could only be ???? ????-??.
