    Explanation
    The correct answer is the only son of Gilead, who had been forced out of Gilead, years earlier, by his brothers, because his mother was a prostitute. This is because Judges 11:1, 7-8 states that Jephthah, the son of Gilead, was chosen as the leader by the Israelites. The passage also mentions that Jephthah had been driven away by his brothers due to his mother's profession.

    C. You can live in the land that your god, Chemosh, has given to you
    Explanation
    Jephthah told the Ammonites that they can live in the land that their god, Chemosh, has given to them. This suggests that Jephthah recognized the Ammonites' claim to the land and respected their religious beliefs. He offered them the opportunity to peacefully coexist in their own territory rather than engaging in a war with Israel.

    Explanation
    Jephthah promised to give the Lord the first thing that comes out of his house when he returned home as a burnt offering if the Lord would help him defeat the Ammonites. This suggests that Jephthah was willing to sacrifice whatever or whoever came out of his house first, without knowing what it would be.

      His only child

    • C.

    B. His only child
    Explanation
    In Judges 11:34-35, it is mentioned that when Jephthah returned home, the first thing to come out of his house was his only child. This implies that Jephthah's only child, his daughter, was the first person to greet him upon his return.

    Rate this question:

    Did Jephthah "devote" his only child to the Lord, as explained in God's law in Lev 27:28-29?  Judges 11:39-40

    • A.

      No, he did not "devote" (Hebrew: cherum) his daughter; he simply "offered her up" (Hebrew: alah) to the Lord for a sacrificial offering. (Lev 27:28-29)

    • B.

      Yes, he devoted her to the Lord for complete destruction.

    Correct Answer
    A. No, he did not "devote" (Hebrew: cherum) his daughter; he simply "offered her up" (Hebrew: alah) to the Lord for a sacrificial offering. (Lev 27:28-29)
    Explanation
    The correct answer is that Jephthah did not "devote" his daughter according to Leviticus 27:28-29. Instead, he "offered her up" as a sacrificial offering to the Lord. The distinction lies in the Hebrew words used - "cherum" for devotion and "alah" for offering. This means that Jephthah did not dedicate his daughter to complete destruction, but rather presented her as a sacrifice.

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    How did the people of Gilead judge if someone was from Ephraim? Judges 12:5-6

    • A.

      They would ask the people to say a certain word, which they knew that people of Ephraim could not pronounce

    • B.

      People of Ephraim had big hands

    • C.

      People of Ephraim did not have thumbs or big toes

    Correct Answer
    A. They would ask the people to say a certain word, which they knew that people of Ephraim could not pronounce
    Explanation
    The people of Gilead would determine if someone was from Ephraim by asking them to say a certain word that they knew people of Ephraim could not pronounce. This suggests that there was a distinct linguistic difference between the people of Gilead and Ephraim, possibly indicating dialect or accent variations. By using this method, the people of Gilead could easily identify individuals from Ephraim based on their inability to pronounce the specific word correctly.
