After a short furlough (and no, that’s not a haircut you give to your pet), the Bible riddle has returned:
I have four wings, but cannot fly. I never laugh and never cry; on the same spot I’m always found, toiling away with a little sound. What am I?
What do you think? Good riddle, or good riddance?
Maybe a hint will change your mind. Read Matthew 3:1-12 and look for the word that answers today’s riddle.
Not only does this riddle sound like it defies physics, it may defy your riddle solving skills:
What has holes on each side, but can still hold water?
To seal this riddle up, check out John 19:19-30 for a hint.
It’s tricky, but there’s no magic involved in this Bible riddle:
I go into the water red and come out black. What am I?
Is there room in your hat to figure out this answer? No? Well there’s room in the scriptures. Check out 1 Timothy 4:1-11 and look for the word that answers today’s Bible riddle.
This is a great riddle. It’s witty, it makes perfect sense and with a little hint I think you’ll be able to figure it out.
I make up all literature, but I’m often sealed. What am I?
Need that hint? Check out 1 Kings 21:1-16 and look for the word that answers today’s riddle.
If a man carried my burden, he’d break his back. I am not rich, but I always leave silver in my track. What am I?
Believe it or not, Psalm 58 actually contains the answer for this. I think it may be the only time the word is properly translated in the scriptures.
Admittedly, even though this riddle has the right elements it isn’t the best one by any stretch of the means; but at the end of the day it’s a riddle none-the-less:
There are three jars full of equal amounts quarters, dimes, and pennies. Which one has the highest value?
Looking for the clue? Read Exodus 13:3-10 and you’ll find your answer tucked in between the beginning and the end of those lines.
Have a blessed week!
You may have to investigate this Bible riddle closely:
A thief enters a shop and threatens the clerk, forcing him to open the safe. The clerk says, “The code for the safe is different every day, and if you hurt me you’ll never get the code”. But the thief manages to guess the code on his own. What was the code?
Not adding up for you? Check out Numbers 14:13-24 and look for the word that best fits as today’s answer.
Only a few words but a whole lot of riddle:
The shorter I am, the bigger I am. What am I?
Starting to scratch a sore spot on your head? Check out Proverbs 14:9-19 and look for the word (in what ever tense it may appear) that spells relief…metaphorically speaking.
Have a blessed week.
Nothing says it’s Monday morning like a Bible riddle…unless it’s going back to work. Yeah I guess going back to work says Monday morning better, but here’s the second best thing:
I am shorter when I stand and taller when I sit. Sometimes I’m even called a pit. What am I?
Have this one in the bag? Share the answer in the comments section.
Need the hint? Check out 2 Kings 8:1-15 and look for the word that answers today’s riddle.
Whoever makes me can hear me, but nobody else can. What am I?
Need a nudge in the right direction? To find a hint you can click on this provided link that goes to an on-line version of James 2:1-9, or you can look it up in your own copy of the scriptures (by hint, I mean the answer to the riddle is found in that section of scripture). And by the way, this week’s hint may give the answer in plural form…or maybe not.
Have fun, and good luck.
“It takes one word to separate them; otherwise they are inseparable. What are they?”
Um, this is where you join in 😉
Have a blessed week in your study of God’s word.
I think Tina Bergland of Forthright Magazine might be able to use this Bible riddle in one of her articles:
A tomato vine is 3 meters long. The bottom foot of the vine doesn’t grow any tomatoes but the rest of the vine grows a tomato every 5 inches. How many vegetables can grow off of the vine?
Think your math has this riddle all wrapped-up and put in the garden basket? You might want to check out Genesis 23:1-20 to make sure. It’s an interesting read, and it also gives you the right answer.
Here’s a riddle for all you Bible reading, sports fans. Pay attention to the instructions on how to find the answer because they’re a little different than usual:
A baseball pitcher plays during 9 innings, gets 27 strike outs, and only throws 81 pitches. But they still lose 1-0 to the other team. How is this possible?
What do you think? Can you do the math? Are you striking out too? Do you need a little coaching? Combine two different words from Acts 11:27-30 and Mark 14:12-16 to get the answer.
Good luck and have fun.
It’s not the best Bible riddle, but none-the-less it fits both the categories; and on top of that it helps to solve a denominational problem with an answer that I’m sure the majority of people would actually agree on:
Is an older one-hundred dollar bill worth more than a newer one?
So what’s your expert opinion on this denominational question? Still need to visit the bank of scripture to make sure you have the right answer? Check out Matthew 17:22-27 and look for the word that takes care of the math for you.
Now if we could only get people to see that the same book that helps to solve the numerical denomination problem also has the ability to help solve the spiritual denomination problem too.
I know this is a day off for many people here in the States, but it may take a little work and effort to figure out this Bible riddle, so I hope it doesn’t ruin your relaxing:
What heavy seven letter word can you take two away from and be left with eight?
Need a clue? Well I need an answer, so maybe we can help each other out. Read Micah 6:7-15 and look for the word that works as an answer to today’s riddle. Keep reading; its in there somewhere.
