    The correct answer is "priest and the prophet." The passage describes individuals who reel and stagger with strong drink, are swallowed by wine, and stumble in giving judgment. This behavior is attributed to the priest and the prophet, suggesting that even those who are supposed to be wise and spiritual leaders are engaging in drunkenness and moral corruption. This highlights the moral decay and lack of righteousness among the religious leaders of the time.

    Correct Answer
    C. Weaned from the milk, those taken from the breast
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "weaned from the milk, those taken from the breast" because the passage is talking about teaching and explaining knowledge. The phrase "weaned from the milk, those taken from the breast" implies that the people being taught are no longer infants or beginners, but have grown and matured in their understanding. They are ready to receive deeper knowledge and are no longer reliant on basic teachings.

    As when a hungry man dreams, and behold, he is eating and awakes with his hunger not satisfied, or as when a thirsty man dreams, and behold, he is drinking and awakes faint, with his thirst not quenched, so shall the multitude of all the nations be  that fight against _______. -Is 29:8

    • A.

      Israel

    • B.

      Mount Zion

    • C.

      The righteous

    Correct Answer
    B. Mount Zion
    Explanation
    In this passage from the book of Isaiah, the author uses a metaphor to describe the fate of those who fight against Mount Zion. The hungry man dreaming of eating and the thirsty man dreaming of drinking but waking up unsatisfied symbolize the disappointment and failure that the multitude of nations will experience when they oppose Mount Zion. Mount Zion is often used in the Bible to represent Jerusalem and the people of Israel, so the correct answer is Mount Zion.

    Explanation
    The correct answer is "prophets." The passage is referring to the spiritual blindness and deafness of the prophets. The Lord has poured out a spirit of deep sleep upon them, causing them to be blind and unable to see the truth. This is a metaphorical language used to describe the spiritual condition of the prophets who have failed to accurately discern and communicate God's message.

    11 And the vision of all this has become to you like the words of a book that is sealed. When men give it to one who can read, saying, “Read this,” he says, “I cannot, for _________.” -Is 29:11

    • A.

      It doesn't make sense

    • B.

      It looks like a fog is covering my eyes

    • C.

      It is sealed

    Correct Answer
    C. It is sealed
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "it is sealed." This answer aligns with the given passage from Isaiah 29:11, where the vision is compared to the words of a sealed book. Just as a sealed book cannot be read, the vision has become incomprehensible and inaccessible to the person being addressed.

    • A.

      Blind

    • B.

      Righteous

    • C.

    A. Blind
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "blind." The passage from Isaiah 29:18-20 is describing a future event when the deaf will be able to hear and the blind will be able to see. It contrasts the current state of gloom and darkness with the future state of joy and exultation. The passage also mentions that the ruthless, scoffers, and evildoers will be cut off, implying that they will no longer have power or influence.

    The correct answer is "gracious". This is because the verse states that the Lord waits to be gracious to you and exalts himself to show mercy to you. It emphasizes that the Lord is a God of justice, and those who wait for him are blessed. This implies that the Lord is patient and compassionate, offering grace and mercy to those who seek him.

This suggests that the Lord will bring honor and beauty to the remaining faithful individuals among his people.

      They were deaf

    • C.

      They would not hear

    Correct Answer
    C. They would not hear
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "they would not hear". This answer is supported by the phrase "For by people of strange lips and with a foreign tongue the Lord will speak to this people" in the passage. It suggests that even though the Lord is speaking to them in a different language, they refuse to listen and hear the message of rest and repose.

    16 therefore thus says the Lord God, “Behold, I am the one who has laid as a foundation in Zion, a stone, a tested stone, a precious _________, of a sure foundation: ‘Whoever believes will not be in haste.’ -Is 28:16

      Cornerstone

    • B.

      Emerald stone

    • C.

      Big stone

    Correct Answer
    A. Cornerstone
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "cornerstone". In this passage from the book of Isaiah, the Lord God is speaking and referring to Himself as the one who has laid a foundation in Zion. He describes this foundation as a stone that has been tested and is precious. This stone is called a cornerstone, which is a stone that is used to set the direction and alignment of a building. It is a metaphor for the essential and foundational element upon which something is built. The passage also states that whoever believes in this cornerstone will not be in haste, suggesting that having faith in the Lord God provides a solid and secure foundation.

    • A.

      Red

    • B.

      Dividing

    • C.

      Plumb

    • D.

      Answer option 4

    Correct Answer
    C. Plumb
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "plumb." In this verse from the book of Isaiah, the speaker is describing how justice and righteousness will be established as the standard or guide. The word "plumb" refers to a tool used in construction to ensure that something is perfectly vertical or aligned. So, by saying that justice and righteousness will be the plumb line, it means that they will be the standard by which everything else is measured and aligned. This suggests that any falsehood or deceit will be exposed and washed away.

    18 Then your covenant with death will be annulled,  and your agreement with Sheol will not stand; when the overwhelming scourge passes through, you will be beaten down by it. 19 As often as it passes through it will take you;  for morning by morning it will pass through,  by day and by night and it will be sheer terror to ____ the message. -Is 28:18-19

    • A.

      Hear

    • B.

      Read

    • C.

    Correct Answer
    C. Understand
    Explanation
    The passage is describing a scenario where a covenant with death and an agreement with Sheol (the place of the dead) will be annulled and will not stand. It goes on to say that when an overwhelming scourge passes through, the people will be beaten down by it. The passage then states that this scourge will pass through frequently, causing sheer terror to "understand" the message. This suggests that the correct answer is "understand", as the passage implies that the message being conveyed by the scourge will be terrifying and difficult to comprehend.

    The correct answer is "rest". The passage states that by returning and resting, the people will be saved and find strength.

This suggests that the people's lack of trust and reliance on their own abilities instead of resting in God's strength will lead to their downfall.
