    Where’d I Put that Thing? 

    Now where’d I put that precious thing?
    How could I ever forget?
    Be it age or lack of a finger’s string,
    It still makes a body fret.

    I look on high, and I look down low,
    I turn the house into a mess;
    I turn and ask the Lord to show—
    When found: relief! God bless!

    Bible Riddle 

    It’s harvest time around here so I figured a Bible riddle with a harvest theme might be good:

    A farmer has three fields. One of them has 3 bundles of hay, another has 4, and the last has 5. How many would he have in the first field if he combined all of them in that field?

    Harvested the answer yet? Need a hint? Check out Colossians 3:9-17 and look for the word that provides the answer to the question.

    Good luck. Happy reading. Share the answer if you like. And have a blessed week.

      • Eugene Adkins 6:03 am on 2014-11-04 Permalink | Reply

        Hello, Allen.

        Good guess, but the farmer didn’t get rid of all the hay so there has to be a certain amount left over when he was finished working with it.

    • James 10:46 am on 2014-11-03 Permalink | Reply

      If he combined them he would have one.

      • Eugene Adkins 6:03 am on 2014-11-04 Permalink | Reply

        Guess farmers have been using combines for quite a while huh?

    Bible Riddle 

    I remember this one from when I was a kid…

    An electric train is traveling south. Which way does the smoke go?

    Do you remember it too? Feel free to share the answer if you do.

    But if you don’t remember it or you can’t figure it out then read Luke 9:51-62 for a hint.

    Give it a try. After all, the worst that can happen is a little Bible reading and there’s nothing bad about that.

    Bible Riddle 

    Better put your thinking caps on, or your thinking coffee in your cup, for this riddle. But believe it or not, the answer to this riddle can still be found in the scriptures.

    You are awoken at 3 A.M. by a knock on your door. Your parents call you to let you know that they are there for breakfast. You are confused but quickly think of what food you have. You have bread, jam, butter, and eggs. What do you open first?

    Tell me what you think it is. Do you have it figured out? Need the hint after all? Check out John 10:1-11 and look for the word(s) that answers the riddle. Don’t give up, it’s there!

        Hi Heather,

        Unless you “sleep talk” through the conversation, your eyes should already be opened when the phone was answered; but that’s a good guess.

        I think this riddle is a good one too. I don’t think I thought of the answer when I first heard it, but I do remember thinking that it was a really good one once I heard the answer. Not every riddle makes perfect/immediate sense when you hear the answer but this one does for sure.

    Simplicity at its finest:

    What do you think? Think it’s not that simple? Check out Matthew 15:1-13 and look for the word that answers the question. Just read it, look closely and you’ll get it.

    Bible Riddle 

    This is a great riddle. It’s a little tricky, but not anything near impossible. And when you hear the answer it makes perfect sense. Can you figure it out?

    Of the king I am blue and of the peasant I am red. Of the frog I am cold and of the dog I am hot instead. What am I?

    If you’re needing a bump in the right direction check out Ephesians 6:10-20 and look for the word that answers the riddle.

    Read carefully, think about the riddle and you’ll get it. Have a great week!

    Bible Riddle 

    No doubt about it, last week’s Bible riddle about the “secret password” put a strain on the brain, but I believe this week’s riddle might be a little more relaxing:

    What has one head, one foot and four legs?

    Do you already know the answer? Share it in the comments. Need a hint? Check out Mark 4:21-34 and look for the word that best fits as the answer.

    Have a safe and blessed week.

    Bible Riddle 

    This one is tough, so it may be a good thing that this is a Bible riddle:

    You want to go to a secret meeting but to get in you must respond correctly to what the doorman says. The doorman says 12 to one man and the man responds 6, and he is allowed in. Then he says 6 to another man and the man says 3, and he too is allowed in. A third man walks up and he says 10 and the man responds 5, but he is denied entry. What number should he have said to get in?

    Looking for that hint aren’t you? Check out Genesis 6:1-16 and look for the word that best fits the answer to the question. And if you’re feeling spunky, try explaining the “logic” behind the answer.

    Hey, after you answer this riddle everything else this week has to get easier!

      Bummer! No answers yet 🙂

      • Eugene Adkins 6:39 am on 2014-09-09 Permalink | Reply

        It’s probably the toughest one I’ve used. I couldn’t figure it out when I found it and adding the scriptures as a clue probably wouldn’t have helped…but it does give someone a shot at guessing the right answer since it has to be a number.

        The answer is logical, but sometimes logic is only seen after it has been explained – thank God for teachers (Acts 8:30-31).

        And by the way, bummer is not right 😉

    • Chris Barrett 6:24 pm on 2014-09-08 Permalink | Reply

      Ok here goes. Total shot in the dark. Here’s my “logic” if you want to call it that. I believe the “mystery number” is 18 which is the length in inches of a cubit. The first two numbers 12 + 6 =18. The second two numbers 6 x 3 = 18. So the third man should have answered 8 to go with the number 10 he heard to equal 18. So 8 is my answer.

      • Eugene Adkins 6:45 am on 2014-09-09 Permalink | Reply

        Morning, Chris. Thanks for taking a shot, but 8 isn’t right. I hear your logic, and it’s better than what I came up with when I originally heard this riddle, but the answer doesn’t involve converting a word into a number like you have to do with the word cubit. The answer (the word) can literally be found in the scripture references, and since 8 isn’t mentioned (at least I don’t remember it being mentioned) it’s not right. I bet if you think on the numbers for a while you might be able to connect the dots.

        Since you’re the only one that’s guessed, if you give up and you want to know the answer, make another reply after a while and I’ll give you the answer with the logic that leads to it.

        • Barbara Ann Oliver 9:21 am on 2014-09-09 Permalink | Reply

          Are you sure it’s not “bummer” 🙂 Did you have to pick a scripture with so many numbers in it!!

          Nah, I didn’t have to…but that’s what makes it so much fun!

      How about 20

      • Eugene Adkins 7:22 pm on 2014-09-09 Permalink | Reply

        Hi, Richard.

        Thanks for chipping in, but 20 isn’t it. The answer will be one of the numbers that’s mentioned in the scripture reference above. Forgive me if I’m wrong, but I don’t think 30 was a number that was mentioned.

        Feel more than free to take another swing at it. You have two left…hint, hint.

    • Heather 8:08 pm on 2014-09-09 Permalink | Reply

      Is the answer 1

      • Eugene Adkins 8:24 pm on 2014-09-09 Permalink | Reply

        Hello, Heather. Thanks for commenting on another riddle.

        1 is the answer only if it’s used in the following sentence: your answer is the wrong one 🙁 but thanks for trying.

    • Eugene Adkins 6:04 pm on 2014-09-10 Permalink | Reply

      Thanks for trying everybody! I told you this one is tough.

      The answer to the riddle is three (Genesis 6:10). The logic is seen in that the reply to the number given by the doorman is whatever number of letters the number contains when it’s spelled out.

      So 12 has 6 letters. 6 has 3 letters. And 10 has 3 letters.

      Thanks for reading guys. I hope you continue to enjoy the riddles even though they’re not always so easy to figure out.

        The “dirty terms” is a reference to a lot of people’s strong dislike (hate) of snow, and I think it’s also a contrast to the “clean look” of fresh snow.
