I don't think that the phrase "straight and narrow" appears in any major Bible translation. There is Matthew 7's reference to a "strait" gate and a narrow way in the KJV. A strait gate is a narrow gate; I'm not sure what a straight gate would be.

A straight gate is perpendicular to the path and square, leaning neither to the right nor the left.

How about a little leeway on the spelling of that counterpart to Sadducees?

How did you spell it? We allow a lot of different spellings for that one!

My first try was pharases which didn't work.

"Wailing and grinding of teeth" is also a common translation; certainly the NABRE uses it.

New translations run all over the place.

The old one too, KJB is quite lyrical, but terrible in the way of accuracy.

Only missed Sidon. BTW, this is the first Jetpunk quiz I've taken where I didn't need to look at any of the clues - everything could be deduced from the provided portions of the snippets in the answers.

I noticed that too! Maybe there should be more quizzes without questions and just fill in the blanks, kind of like a crossword puzzle in a sense.

Also, I love the Bible quizzes, please keep adding them, QM.

I didn't read the clues either, and only missed Sidon. Once I saw Tyre I remembered the Allen Drury book, Come Nineveh, Come Tyre, and I couldn't get past Nineveh even though it's in Iraq. These days once something sticks in my head it seems nothing can get past it.

yea I did that too (besides the trembling one, and maybe another, I think with israel)

Interesting that the last clue is "translated" away in almost all the other translations of the Bible. Not as if anyone was trying to change anything when the KJV was written...

All earlier texts gave Goliath's height as four cubits and a span - the later texts with 6 are agreed by scholars to have either been an error or an exaggeration over time. See's_height

4 cubits and a span would have made him barely taller than me. Not so impressive. On the other hand if he was over 6 cubits tall he probably would have a hard time standing without crutches.

Cubits rather varied per time and place. And then there is the short and long cubit (wether you measure your inner arm, and upto the wrist, or your outer arm from the tip of your elbow to the tip of your middlefinger)

If you go by the great egyptian cubit for instance, which was about 53cm 4 cubits would be 212cm which would be very tall for these days and even moreso centuries ago.

If you go by the small greek unit, which was 34cm, 6 cubits would be 204cm.

Ow I forgot the spans, well that differs too, also not always measured the same way. And sometimes confused with palm.

yeah I know. I was going by what is in google. I found it amusing that they had a unit converter.

Catholics say that the line you referenced is not part of the Lord's Prayer (although for the last 50 years, they recite it separately after the Lord's Prayer is done). Also, it's only in the Matthew version, not the Luke version of it.
