Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    How did God tell the Israelites to get food and water from the land of Sier?  -Deut 2:4-6

    • A.

      Kill all the people and take their food and water

    • B.

      Buy it from the people; pay them for it

    • C.

      Ask the people to give it to you for free

    Correct Answer
    B. Buy it from the people; pay them for it
    Explanation
    The correct answer is to buy it from the people and pay them for it. In Deuteronomy 2:4-6, God instructed the Israelites to pass through the land of Sier peacefully and not to provoke the people or engage in conflict with them. Instead, they were to buy food and water from the inhabitants and pay a fair price for it. This shows God's desire for peaceful interactions and fair trade between nations.

    Why did God tell the Israelites not to bother the Moabites? Deut 2:9

    • A.

      Because they were good people

    • B.

      Because they worshiped God

    • C.

      Because they were the descendants of Lot

    Correct Answer
    C. Because they were the descendants of Lot
    Explanation
    The correct answer is because they were the descendants of Lot. In Deuteronomy 2:9, God instructs the Israelites not to harass or provoke the Moabites, as they were the descendants of Lot. This shows that God had a specific relationship and covenant with Lot and his descendants, and therefore, the Israelites were to respect and not cause harm to them.

  • 3. 

    Why did God say to the Israelites that he would not give them any of the land of the hill country of Sier? Deut 2:4-5

    • A.

      Because God had given that land to Esau to keep as his own

    • B.

      Because the hill country was a place where anyone could come and worship

    • C.

      Because the hill country did not have good soil or grass for crops or flocks

    Correct Answer
    A. Because God had given that land to Esau to keep as his own
    Explanation
    In Deuteronomy 2:4-5, God told the Israelites that He would not give them any of the land of the hill country of Sier because He had already given that land to Esau. This implies that the land was reserved for Esau and his descendants, and therefore, it was not intended for the Israelites to possess.

    How did God give Esau his land (the foothills of Sier)? Deut 2:12

    • A.

      Esau's people destroyed the Horites who lived there, just like Israel destroyed the people in the land that the Lord gave to them

    • B.

      He spoke to Easu in a vision saying that this land, where no one had ever lived, would be his forever

    • C.

      God gave Easu a written document in stone declaring to him that it was his

    Correct Answer
    A. Esau's people destroyed the Horites who lived there, just like Israel destroyed the people in the land that the Lord gave to them
    Explanation
    Esau's people destroyed the Horites who lived in the foothills of Sier, similar to how Israel destroyed the inhabitants of the land that God gave to them. This suggests that God allowed Esau's people to conquer and possess the land, just as He did with Israel. It implies that God's giving of land can involve military conquest and displacement of previous inhabitants.

    • A.

    • B.

      The Cretans destroyed the Avvites, took their land, and live there now

    Correct Answer
    B. The Cretans destroyed the Avvites, took their land, and live there now
    Explanation
    The correct answer is that the Cretans destroyed the Avvites, took their land, and now live there. This is based on the information provided in Deuteronomy 2:23, which states that God gave the land of the towns around Gaza to the Cretans by allowing them to conquer and inhabit it after defeating the Avvites.
