This is one tough riddle; but at least there are only 4 verses to read through to help narrow it down for you.
Take my first and make it my last, now I happened in the past. What am I?
The scripture reference: Ruth 2:13-16
The answer: you tell me; I already know it!
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?
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
What can be swallowed, but can also swallow you?

You probably can’t say that about this riddle:

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.
