False Friends

Verse Your Answer Correct/Incorrect
“And the Lord God said, It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him an help meet for him.”
(Genesis 2:18)
Someone suitable, or a companion. A “”suitable companion”” is probably how I would define that. Is “”help meet”” two words there? Correct
“Forbidding to marry, and commanding to abstain from meats, which God hath created to be received with thanksgiving of them which believe and know the truth.”
(1 Timothy 4:3)
To not eat them, or to stay away from them. Vegetarians abstain from meat, and we abstain from all immoral activity as Christians. Incorrect
Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.”
(2 Timothy 2:15)
To study… To work on it, to pore over it. I feel like “”study”” is a pretty easy word, but I’m having trouble defining it. To read over it, to digest it, perhaps? Incorrect
“And Elijah came unto all the people, and said, How long halt ye between two opinions? if the Lord be God, follow him: but if Baal, then follow him. And the people answered him not a word.”
(1 Kings 18:21)
It’s like sitting on a fence: you’re hesitant, unsure of the direction or course that you want to take. Incorrect
“If in this life only we have hope in Christ, we are of all men most miserable.”
(1 Corinthians 15:19)
Sad, depressed, or just hopeless is probably the best word. Incorrect
Remove not the ancient landmark, which thy fathers have set.”
(Proverbs 22:28)
To put it somewhere else. It’s already been put there, don’t move it. I’d probably just define it with the word move without giving it a whole lot of thought. Correct
“Therefore now, Lord God of Israel, keep with thy servant David my father that thou promisedst him, saying, There shall not fail thee a man in my sight to sit on the throne of Israel; so that thy children take heed to their way, that they walk before me as thou hast walked before me.”
(1 Kings 8:25)
It’s conditional. “”As long as your children walk before me”” might be another way of putting it. I would mark it down as conditional, offering a condition to the blessing. Correct
“Now ye Philippians know also, that in the beginning of the gospel, when I departed from Macedonia, no church communicated with me as concerning giving and receiving, but ye only.”
(Philippians 4:15)
I have always seen that as “”you stayed in touch and you didn’t just stay in touch with letters; you stayed in touch with finances””. I think communicate is a much more clear way of putting it. I would say it means that you provided money for me along the way. You were a partner in my work via money. You shared in the work through money.
You need to use the right dictionary, like the Webster’s 1828. Language evolves. If I were defining this word outside the KJV, I’d probably say “”exchange of information.”” but I’ve read that so much, I know it means to share or to take part in something together.
Concerning the readability of the KJV, if you’ve grown up on it, you’re going to kind of know some of these meanings. But I don’t feel like I struggle to understand the KJV at all. To me it makes as much sense as any other, if not more. But I could see that it would be difficult for someone from a high school in Chicago to step up and understand what this means.
“Yet hath he not root in himself, but dureth for a while: for when tribulation or persecution ariseth because of the word, by and by he is offended.”
(Matthew 13:21)
Over a period of time, he is offended. Or, as this progress, he is offended. Incorrect
“These things have I spoken unto you, that ye should not be offended.”
(John 16:1)
To trip someone or to cause them to stumble. Correct
Totals Correct: 5
Incorrect: 5
