Bible Bee quiz

Time Posted on June 10, 2011 User Alex Watt

Today, June 10, at 8:00 PM GMT (4:00 PM EDT), we will have a Bible Bee practice quiz here on Memverse using this blog post. The quiz should last about half of an hour and there will be fifteen questions. For ten of the questions (the first five and the last five), I will post a comment with the text of a Bible Bee verse passage in all five Bible Bee approved versions (NIV, ESV, KJV, NKJV, and NASB) and you will have a minute to post the reference. For five of the questions (they will be in the middle of the quiz), I will post a reference and you will have several minutes to respond with the reference at the beginning, the verse text in the middle, and the reference again at the end. Please also include your version to make it easier for scoring. For example, if I comment with Genesis 1:1, the correct response would be something like this:

Genesis 1:1 In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. Genesis 1:1 NIV

You can receive a maximum of 12 points for each type of question. I hope to score very much like the Bible Bee for errors in the verse "recitations" (the middle five questions). For the questions where you post a reference for the verse text given, you will receive four points for the correct book, four points for the correct chapter, and four points for the correct verse number. For example, if you posted 2 John 1:9 instead of 1 John 1:9, you would receive 8 points.

Over half of the questions will be Primary verses and a few will be drawn from the Junior verses.

If you would like to help score, please let me know. Scoring the verse "recitations" will be the most difficult.

If you plan to be participating in the quiz or have any questions, please indicate that in a comment below. Hope to see you there! Thanks.

UPDATE: Thank you to everyone who participated and especially to those who helped score: Chelse Brun, Zachary Baas, vburk, SavedByGrace, and Phil Walker.

I'd love to, because I'm in the senior division, but I won't be home at 4 PM. :(

I will be participating in the quiz. I can also help score KJV "recitations." How will I post the scores after I figure them out?

There are three people in my family that will be doing the quiz, but only two computers. Would it be alright if I just posted my brother's answer with mine?

vburk - That's fine.

Christian Alexander - I hope you can make a future quiz. Is there a better time for you in general?

Everyone interested in scoring: Please be familiar with the Bible Bee scoring rules for Judges, especially page 17: http://www.biblebee.org/rulebook/index.html. We will do scoring at the end. If you don't mind, at the end I will ask each of you to score two or more people for the "recitations" and that should get the job done faster (you won't be scoring yourself). I will score the reference responses and post the totals at the end. If for some reason you are unable to help with scoring as you initially thought, just please let me know. Thank you for your help!

@ Alex: Actually, I have to go to an event that is specifically from 1:30-6:30 today, so it's not a weekly thing. I should be able to do it whenever you have the next one.

runner - If you don't know the verse, you can either say "Pass" or just wait for the next reference. Everyone gets the reference at the same time.

Depends on your browser. I'm on internet explorer, and I have to hit "refresh" if I want to see new comments. It's the two green arrows on the top of the page. They look like the "recyclable" arrows, except that there's only two.

Good morning, Phil, and good afternoon to most of you. :) Don't worry about not knowing everything as you want to. I'm not as familiar with it myself as I might have hoped. Hope you all enjoy the quiz! We'll be starting in a few minutes.

SavedByGrace - True. We hope to have a better solution at some point. If people read other's answers, though, they are just hurting themselves.

I just won't hit the refresh button till after I've typed my verse. I won't be tempted to cheat that way.

Question #1:

NIV: Thus the heavens and the earth were completed in all their vast array. By the seventh day God had finished the work he had been doing; so on the seventh day he rested from all his work. And God blessed the seventh day and made it holy, because on it he rested from all the work of creating that he had done. This is the account of the heavens and the earth when they were created. When the LORD God made the earth and the heavens—

NASB: Thus the heavens and the earth were completed, and all their hosts. By the seventh day God completed His work which He had done, and He rested on the seventh day from all His work which He had done. Then God blessed the seventh day and sanctified it, because in it He rested from all His work which God had created and made. This is the account of the heavens and the earth when they were created, in the day that the LORD God made earth and heaven.

KJV: Thus the heavens and the earth were finished, and all the host of them. And on the seventh day God ended his work which he had made; and he rested on the seventh day from all his work which he had made. And God blessed the seventh day, and sanctified it: because that in it he had rested from all his work which God created and made. These are the generations of the heavens and of the earth when they were created, in the day that the LORD God made the earth and the heavens,

NKJV: Thus the heavens and the earth, and all the host of them, were finished. And on the seventh day God ended His work which He had done, and He rested on the seventh day from all His work which He had done. Then God blessed the seventh day and sanctified it, because in it He rested from all His work which God had created and made.
This is the history of the heavens and the earth when they were created, in the day that the LORD God made the earth and the heavens,

ESV: Thus the heavens and the earth were finished, and all the host of them. And on the seventh day God finished his work that he had done, and he rested on the seventh day from all his work that he had done. So God blessed the seventh day and made it holy, because on it God rested from all his work that he had done in creation. These are the generations of the heavens and the earth when they were created, in the day that the LORD God made the earth and the heavens.

Hi Alex!

I'm using NKJV--thanks for putting all this together!

Question #2:

NIV: Because your heart was responsive and you humbled yourself before God when you heard what he spoke against this place and its people, and because you humbled yourself before me and tore your robes and wept in my presence, I have heard you, declares the LORD.

NASB: Because your heart was tender and you humbled yourself before God when you heard His words against this place and against its inhabitants, and because you humbled yourself before Me, tore your clothes and wept before Me, I truly have heard you,” declares the LORD.

KJV: Because thine heart was tender, and thou didst humble thyself before God, when thou heardest his words against this place, and against the inhabitants thereof, and humbledst thyself before me, and didst rend thy clothes, and weep before me; I have even heard thee also, saith the LORD.

NKJV: because your heart was tender, and you humbled yourself before God when you heard His words against this place and against its inhabitants, and you humbled yourself before Me, and you tore your clothes and wept before Me, I also have heard you,” says the LORD.

NASB: But Ruth said, “Do not urge me to leave you or turn back from following you; for where you go, I will go, and where you lodge, I will lodge. Your people shall be my people, and your God, my God.

KJV: But Ruth said, “Do not urge me to leave you or turn back from following you; for where you go, I will go, and where you lodge, I will lodge. Your people shall be my people, and your God, my God.

NKJV: But Ruth said: “Entreat me not to leave you, Or to turn back from following after you; For wherever you go, I will go; And wherever you lodge, I will lodge; Your people shall be my people, And your God, my God.

ESV: But Ruth said, "Do not urge me to leave you or to return from following you. For where you go I will go, and where you lodge I will lodge. Your people shall be my people, and your God my God.

Question #4:

NIV: Hear, O Israel: The LORD our God, the LORD is one. Love the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength. These commandments that I give you today are to be upon your hearts. Impress them on your children. Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up. Tie them as symbols on your hands and bind them on your foreheads. Write them on the doorframes of your houses and on your gates.

NASB: “Hear, O Israel! The LORD is our God, the LORD is one! You shall love the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your might. These words, which I am commanding you today, shall be on your heart. You shall teach them diligently to your sons and shall talk of them when you sit in your house and when you walk by the way and when you lie down and when you rise up. You shall bind them as a sign on your hand and they shall be as frontals on your forehead. You shall write them on the doorposts of your house and on your gates.

KJV: Hear, O Israel: The LORD our God is one LORD: And thou shalt love the LORD thy God with all thine heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy might. And these words, which I command thee this day, shall be in thine heart: And thou shalt teach them diligently unto thy children, and shalt talk of them when thou sittest in thine house, and when thou walkest by the way, and when thou liest down, and when thou risest up. And thou shalt bind them for a sign upon thine hand, and they shall be as frontlets between thine eyes. And thou shalt write them upon the posts of thy house, and on thy gates.

NKJV: “Hear, O Israel: The LORD our God, the LORD is one! You shall love the LORD your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your strength.
“And these words which I command you today shall be in your heart. You shall teach them diligently to your children, and shall talk of them when you sit in your house, when you walk by the way, when you lie down, and when you rise up. You shall bind them as a sign on your hand, and they shall be as frontlets between your eyes. You shall write them on the doorposts of your house and on your gates.

ESV: "Hear, O Israel: The LORD our God, the LORD is one. You shall love the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your might. And these words that I command you today shall be on your heart. You shall teach them diligently to your children, and shall talk of them when you sit in your house, and when you walk by the way, and when you lie down, and when you rise. You shall bind them as a sign on your hand, and they shall be as frontlets between your eyes. You shall write them on the doorposts of your house and on your gates.

Question #12:

NIV: Then the LORD said: "I am making a covenant with you. Before all your people I will do wonders never before done in any nation in all the world. The people you live among will see how awesome is the work that I, the LORD, will do for you.

NASB: Then God said, “Behold, I am going to make a covenant. Before all your people I will perform miracles which have not been produced in all the earth nor among any of the nations; and all the people among whom you live will see the working of the LORD, for it is a fearful thing that I am going to perform with you.

KJV: And he said, Behold, I make a covenant: before all thy people I will do marvels, such as have not been done in all the earth, nor in any nation: and all the people among which thou art shall see the work of the LORD: for it is a terrible thing that I will do with thee.

NKJV: And He said: “Behold, I make a covenant. Before all your people I will do marvels such as have not been done in all the earth, nor in any nation; and all the people among whom you are shall see the work of the LORD. For it is an awesome thing that I will do with you.

ESV: And he said, "Behold, I am making a covenant. Before all your people I will do marvels, such as have not been created in all the earth or in any nation. And all the people among whom you are shall see the work of the LORD, for it is an awesome thing that I will do with you.

NASB: Then Hannah prayed and said, “My heart exults in the LORD; My horn is exalted in the LORD, My mouth speaks boldly against my enemies, Because I rejoice in Your salvation. “There is no one holy like the LORD, Indeed, there is no one besides You, Nor is there any rock like our God.

KJV: And Hannah prayed, and said, My heart rejoiceth in the LORD, mine horn is exalted in the LORD: my mouth is enlarged over mine enemies; because I rejoice in thy salvation. There is none holy as the LORD: for there is none beside thee: neither is there any rock like our God.

NKJV: And Hannah prayed and said: “My heart rejoices in the LORD; My horn is exalted in the LORD. I smile at my enemies, Because I rejoice in Your salvation. “No one is holy like the LORD, For there is none besides You, Nor is there any rock like our God.

Question #14:

NIV: So the LORD gave Israel all the land he had sworn to give their forefathers, and they took possession of it and settled there. The LORD gave them rest on every side, just as he had sworn to their forefathers. Not one of their enemies withstood them; the LORD handed all their enemies over to them. Not one of all the Lord's good promises to the house of Israel failed; every one was fulfilled.

NASB: So the LORD gave Israel all the land which He had sworn to give to their fathers, and they possessed it and lived in it. And the LORD gave them rest on every side, according to all that He had sworn to their fathers, and no one of all their enemies stood before them; the LORD gave all their enemies into their hand. Not one of the good promises which the LORD had made to the house of Israel failed; all came to pass.

KJV: And the LORD gave unto Israel all the land which he sware to give unto their fathers; and they possessed it, and dwelt therein. And the LORD gave them rest round about, according to all that he sware unto their fathers: and there stood not a man of all their enemies before them; the LORD delivered all their enemies into their hand. There failed not ought of any good thing which the LORD had spoken unto the house of Israel; all came to pass.

NKJV: So the LORD gave to Israel all the land of which He had sworn to give to their fathers, and they took possession of it and dwelt in it. The LORD gave them rest all around, according to all that He had sworn to their fathers. And not a man of all their enemies stood against them; the LORD delivered all their enemies into their hand. Not a word failed of any good thing which the LORD had spoken to the house of Israel. All came to pass.

ESV: Thus the LORD gave to Israel all the land that he swore to give to their fathers. And they took possession of it, and they settled there. And the LORD gave them rest on every side just as he had sworn to their fathers. Not one of all their enemies had withstood them, for the LORD had given all their enemies into their hands.

Okay, sorry for bugging everybody, but the BB handbook says you get points deducted if you ommit a word AND if you insert an extra word. An example,

Real thing:That thou mayest observe to do according to all that is written therein
Somebody writes: That thou mayest observe to do according to all the law.

Alex, I would deduct 4 points. According to BB however i should deduct 6?

I think you have to have an account on one of the programs listed, not MemVerse. Like if you have a gmail email, you click the google one and type in your email and email password. At least that is what I think it is.

Too bad. I don't know if I even HAVE an account on any of those things. I guess my feedback will have to be in my comments.

Alex Watt

Chelse Brun - We use GetSatisfaction for feedback, so you would have to create an account with them to submit feedback on Memverse. It helps everyone stay more organized as far as what features are planned, not planned, under consideration, etc. Also, someone has already proposed the idea of reviewing verses more often and it is something we want to get around to. Thanks. (The idea is that they check verses off on the My Verses page and can review them, but we haven't had time to build that yet. No expectation for when it might be done. I totally agree, though, that I could use that feature, too!)

Hi. I had these scores calculated almost 3 hours ago, but then lost internet connection. Living overseas can be interesting at times. My apologies to Alex, Jonathan, Murphy family, Clara K, and Runner.

Jonathan Shabab answered #1, 5, and 6 and got them perfect for 100% and a score of 36

The Murphy family was perfect on number 3, 4, 5, 6, 10, 11, and 15. You missed one word in 1 SAMUEL 15:22 and had a great start to JOSHUA 1:7-8. Total points = 95

Clara K was perfect on number 1, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 12, 13, 14, and 15. You skipped (or I couldn't find) # 2, 10, and 11 For number 9 = Joshua 1:7-8 you skipped a 12 word phrase starting with "so that you may be careful". Total score = 132

For Runner, I got a slightly different score than someone else who posted. I got perfect on #1, 3, 4, 5, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14. I gave you 4 points for #2; 8 points for #15 and 11 points for both #6 & #7. Total score = 166.

Great job everyone and thanks again Alex for putting this on.

Chelse Brun

I think the difference between the way that Phil and I scored Runner's score is that I took a point off for each missing referance. (At least, that's how I understand the official BB contest rules - one point off for each missing referance when the verse is recited???) So, if someone was missing both the beggining referance and the ending referance in the 5 recitation verses, I took off 2 points. Was this right?

SavedByGrace

Hey everyone, I'm not positive about this, but I don't think I got 180 points, the most points possible. I looked back and saw that I had put Deuteronomy 34:10 when the answer was really Exodus 34:10. This means that I lose AT LEAST 4 points, so I get AT MOST 176 points, not 180. Just wanted to clarify.

Dakota, I started when God got a hold of my heart at age 23. What a thrill to see you and others on here intentionally taking in God's Word and authentically pursuing getting to know Him and His Word at a younger age.

In a way, I would give anything to be able to start again as a teenager in peak memorizing ability with the perspective I have now. However, God knows all and does all things well, and I am content with His timing and purpose in my life as Jacky and I are heading to Indonesia to spread a passion for Scripture there.

Oh yeah - I would probably be able to do any day this summer except late August. And of course, I cannot do them until 1 - 1:30p on Sundays! ;)

I can update if this changes (either on this or a new comment).

I can lead almost any quiz you want starting not this Friday, but next Friday. :)

Alex Watt

Sarah - That would be great. Maybe you can lead one next Friday and I can do one the week after? We can alternate... It is too late to do a quiz tomorrow and I am hoping that we will have a new feature out soon to make quizzes easier. You see what we did - I had Questions 1-5 and 11-15 prepared in a document on my computer with the text of mostly Primary and a few Junior verses in all five BB translations. For Questions 6-10 I just had short references picked out - we don't want anything too long for people that are learning to type.

I was going to try to have everyone enter scores into a shared Google Doc which was why I didn't tell the people helping with scoring what to do right away, but then I decided to ask every person volunteering to help score to score a three or four specific people. I had a list of everyone that needed scored and who was scoring them. Then volunteers posted the scores for people and I updated the blog post.

We'll see how it goes. Let me know what you think. Grace (above) said she might be able to lead a quiz later in the season...

Any times that I am available, but not needed to run the quiz, I can definitely help score - preferably ESV, but any version is fine :)

Upcoming Bible Bee practice quizzes: this Friday, June 24th, at 4:00 PM EDT, and next Friday, July 1st, at 4:00 PM EDT.

Please let me know if you plan to attend. Details to follow. Sorry that some of you are unable to make these dates. Thank you.

I have two suggestions, Alex. First, I think there should be more notice before the quiz, like the post being posted the day before. Also, I don't think you should hold a quiz on Friday July 2nd. July 2nd is a Saturday.

Oh, one more thing, Alex. I have noticed that Psalm 128:5 has a typo. It excludes the phrase "may you see the prosperity of Jerusalem." Anything you (or I) can do? It gets me a little confused sometimes. (just 31 comments more, Zachary Baas!)

C0928da0dba0ffe38d3cd02cf87a03b5?d=wavatar

@Joshua Harrell - I totally agree with you. I didn't have time to get on for a few days and the next day when I logged on I found out that I had missed it. :(

Do you think if you could post an email spot on our pages (a private non-web exposed part) so you could send us an email a day before because I check that more often that I check this because...well...let's not get into specifics...lol...:)

Are there rules for this because I have NEVER done this before and the Junior verses will really help me...what if we don't know the verse - do we just pass?

@Zachary Baas - 470!!! BTW, I met your mother in the 2009 Bible Bee I think...did she volunteer? Was she a runner for the Primary contestants? I think she was...just let me know :) I'd like to know!

@SavedByGrace - I like your name!

Oh, @Alex Watt, I will TRY to be there...I am usually busy every day of the week but I hope I can get time off for this! How long will it last? Oh, and what is 4:00 PM EDT in Georgia, USA -- is that the same thing? Please let me know!!!!

Sorry - I'm rambling. :) LOL

E722bfd45297b0c0558ed8ed53593094?d=wavatar
Alex Watt

SavedByGrace - That's great! As far as the verse, to report errors you should go to the "My Verses" page, find the verse reference in the left column, and then in the far right column it says either "Pending Verification" or "Verified" or "Editable". If it is Editable, you can click that and fix it yourself; if it is Pending Verification, then one of the admins should catch the mistake soon; and if it is Verified, then you can click on the word "Verified" and it will report an error with the verse. :)

BibleBeeJunior11 - I understand about being busy. By looking it up online, Atlanta, Georgia, runs on EDT, so as long as your region of Georgia goes by the same time as your state capital, it would be 4:00 PM your time.

To pass, you either don't respond or post a comment saying "Pass". We will score your "recitation" like they do in the Bible Bee. For details, please see the Official Competition Rulebook that came in your family box. If you have any specific questions about the rules, I'd be happy to try to explain. Thanks.

Hey, BibleBeeJunior11, a little detail. I noticed on your account (which is accessible by clicking on a person's name on a comment) that you are on Level 0. You may or may not be aware of this, but it is possible to get to Level 1, 2, 3, etc by clicking on the section "Level Goals" on your account. Well, you don't click on the section itself, but on the "quests" underneath it. When you have completed a couple new quests, you can go on to Level 1, then Level 2, up to...well... I don't know (lol). But I just wondered if you knew that or not. If it helped anyone else, you're welcome! It won't help you with memorizing verses, but it is a fun additive to this website. If you don't care, don't mind me... :)

Alex, I had a question. How will you be doing it this time? I know that last time, you did just Primary verses, are you going to do it that way again?

Hey, I just got an idea. I'll need permission from Alex first, but here it is:
What if, instead of just knowing each commenters profile, we could know a little more about them? I don't mean anything personal like an email address or family member names, but I was wondering if each person could type their real name (first, last, middle, or all three), their age, their grade (if they have one, that is) and what their favorite verse is. Alex, if you don't want this, tell me. If permission is granted, no one needs to feel obligated to do this. I was just wanting to know more about who I've been talking to. If you want to keep your identity to yourself, okay. I just thought this would be a little fun. Alex?

I use the ESV. It was hard to choose because our family always used to use the KJV. And now, the church that we go to uses the NASB. Some friends of ours that are also doing the Bible Bee are using the ESV, so we thought we would use the same version as them.

Do you have any siblings doing the Bible Bee also, or not?

SavedByGrace - If people want to do that, that is their choice. I don't see anything wrong with it, but like you said nobody is required to do it. My favorite verse/chapter is currently Philippians 3 and I'm a Bible Bee Senior (age 15).

Everyone, please try to keep the comments constructive for two reasons:

1) Every comment is another entry in our database which means the entire website gets slower.
2) Comments that don't relate to the original post just add to the clutter.

Before commenting, first ask yourself whether it will benefit most of the people who read it.

We're hoping to add a better place to hang out on the site so it's ok to use the blog for now to chat occasionally.

@Alex: What, you are only 15?! Like SavedByGrace said, I thought you were a lot older than that. You do act mature. I'm 15 also, but I don't think I act as mature as you do.

@SavedByGrace: Sorry, no, I wasn't trying to get imformation out of you before you told us about yourself. I'll stop asking questions :)

As for myself, I'm 15, am in the Senior group. This is the first year that I've done the Bible Bee...and am VERY excited about it!! I'm using the ESV for our memorizing. I'm going into 10th grade.
What! I have no idea what my favorite chapter of the Bible is! I have so many. I think my favorite books are Proverbs, Ephesians, and James...does that count?

I had several tabs open in my browser: one for the Recent Comments (which I was refreshing every few seconds to see how many people answered the question) and one of the blog post we were working on. I had the next quiz question pasted into the comment section of the page, and just submitted it when I thought most everyone was ready. I tried to post questions 1 - 5 and 11 - 15 with just one minute in between, but allowed more time for the ones where people had to type verses (questions 6 - 10). It would probably be best to stick with this format, as I've already said that's how we will do it for this quiz...

For the ten questions where people posted the reference, I had the NIV, NASB, ESV, KJV, and NKJV versions of the verse all ready to go in my document. (I copied these from Bible Gateway and removed verse numbers so that people would have to figure it out themselves.) :)

Getting ready for the other five questions was easier: I just picked references that were one or two verses in length to make it easier for people scoring and for those typing.

As far as what verses to ask, I would ask most of the Primary verses for Week 3. (If you don't have a Primary student in your family, you can go to http://www.biblebee.org/_pages/materials.php to see what verses they had.) Actually, since we didn't have a quiz last week, you could ask entirely Primary verses and pick some from Week 2 and some from Week 3. You can use your judgment. If you're running the quiz, you get to decide what you want to put in. :) I would just try to keep it relevant to as many contestants as possible.

Some questions about format can be answered by looking at what I posted on this blog (try looking under "Edit" > "Find" in your toolbar if you want to find something particularly).

Let me know of any questions and how I can help. If you decide to run the quiz, maybe I can do more with scoring. Thanks!
