    Bible Riddle 

    This is one tough riddle; but at least there are only 4 verses to read through to help narrow it down for you.

    The Riddle:

    Take my first and make it my last, now I happened in the past. What am I?

    The scripture referenceRuth 2:13-16

    The answer: you tell me; I already know it!

    Bible Riddle 

    Sometimes the more clues you get, the more confusing a riddle can be:

    I sizzle like bacon, I’m made with an egg.
    I have plenty of backbone, but not a good leg.
    I peel layers like an onion, but still remain whole.
    I can be long like a flagpole, yet I fit in a hole.
    What am I?

    If you need to, you can check out Micah 7:15-18 for your clue.

    8 clues and 4 verses, but only 1 answer. Think you know what it is?

    Bible Riddle 

    This is no eeny meeny miny mo type of riddle, but you do have to make a choice:

    There are several different kinds, but the one you pick doesn’t do its job. What is it?

    You can narrow down your choices by reading Ezekiel 8:1-4 and looking for the answer that puts this riddle to rest.

    Bible Riddle 

    Here’s a great riddle if I say so myself:

    A father’s child. A mother’s child. No one’s son. Who am I?

    It’s not as tough as it may sound. You can read a passage about a biblically famous family in Numbers 26:58-62 to find the answer.

    Have fun!

      Even as a male , I have always found this riddle insulting to women. To paraphrase Mother Bailey from “It’s a Wonderful Life” , “Well , if they were all boys , there wouldn’t be any … Oh , never mind!”

      • Eugene Adkins 11:43 am on 2016-01-19 Permalink | Reply

        Maybe you’re just saying it in jest, but in case not, how do you find it insulting to women?

        When I first heard the riddle I couldn’t figure the answer out and I felt dumb because I have a daughter. The “no one’s son” tends to throw the mind off track. But I don’t see how the riddle is insulting.

        Maybe it’s over my head…wouldn’t be the first time.

          Maybe “insulting” is the most extreme word I could have used. Maybe , “ashamed on their behalf” or “embarassed of my gender”, would be more appropriate. It would be interesting to take a poll and find out the percentage of men vs. women who are stumped by it. As you said , you felt dumb for not figuring it out , and you have a daughter. When I hear it asked , I want to apologize to my daughter , your daughter , and every other daughter out there , that it stumped anyone for any length of time.

            There is no reason to be “embarrassed” because it’s a riddle. Best my memory serves, I don’t think my wife figured out the answer either. And I feel dumb after I hear the answers to most riddles that I can’t figure out because most of the time they are very simplistic. The riddle accomplishes exactly what it’s meant to accomplish – the misdirection of the hearer’s mind by the way the statements are set up. I think you’re taking this way too far. It’s a simple riddle with a simple answer that’s put here in the TFR for one reason – to get people to read the Bible.

    Here’s a little bit…um, never mind, here’s a tough riddle to figure out:

    I give refuge to the blind and repeat everything they say. What am I?

    I think you can get it with the clue that’s found in John 11:38-40 though, but perhaps you don’t even need it.

    Share your answer.

    Good luck!

    Bible Riddle 

    This is a pretty funny riddle after (or if) you figure out the answer and then think again about a particular part of the clue:

    I have 13 arms, 10 legs, 2 head, and smell like burnt denim. What am I?

    You can read through Romans 3:1-6 to find the word that answers this particular Bible riddle.

    Good luck, but I think you can figure it out.

    Bible Riddle 

    Without question (at least to me), when a riddle gives multiple clues to the answer it seems as if the riddle becomes more difficult to figure out. See if that logic works out with this riddle:

    Four hang, four sprang, two point the way, two to ward off dogs, one dangles after, always rather dirty. What am I?

    The scripture reference that makes up the Bible clue actually has less verses (but not words) than the actual riddle has clues, so I think that may put the odds in your favor. The clue is found in Amos 4:1-5.

    Have fun!

    Sometimes, with a riddle, one might feel that there aren’t enough clues given to figure out the answer.

    You probably can’t say that about this riddle:

    5 bricks construct me, you’ll find a candle in the middle. I am the antithesis of heavy. Without me you couldn’t read the riddle. What am I?

    Take those clues and add Luke 1:76-80 to it, and that makes 5 clues for one answer! Pretty good odds I’d say.

    Have fun.

    Knowledge. There’s no doubt that knowledge includes asking questions. But I would think that knowledge also answers questions from time-to-time. If this is true, then what would you say about the mum genius who happens to be the answer to this Bible riddle:

    What asks but never answers?

    If you need a hint, then read Leviticus 11:13-20 and look for the word that answers the question about the one who never answers.
