    Okaayy I don't know how I missed it when I was reading it but can someone clarify for me the # of animals Noah had to put on the ark. I read Genesis 6:19-22 and (summary here) every living thing of all flesh 2 of every sort. When I get down to Genesis 7:2-3 (again summary here) it talkes of bringing 7 each of every clean animal...

    The excerpts in this post are from NKJV, since I forgot to bring my KVJ from home. I am just bumfuzzeled at these passages. All throughout the ages people have depicted the ark being loaded in twosies and doesn't mention the 7's. Is this just a wording thing from KVJ to NKJV?

    I don't suppose anyone else has noticed this before have they?...I hope I'm not the only one.
    :confused:

    As I understand it, two of each animal were to be used for the repopulation of the earth. The extra 5 of the clean animals were to be used for food and sacrifices until the time when the first two had reproduced in sufficient quantities.

    Use it as a quiz on Bible reading every year in Bible class.

    How many of each kind of animal did Moses take on the Ark?

    2 or 7?

    HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!

    From the mouth of Hop Sing(cook on Bonanza)

    "Me catch on to trick question, Hoss Cartwright! Moses no takee animal on to Ark! Noah take them! You get out of kitchen, Hoss Cartwright! You eat too much Hop Sing's cooking!"

    The 2's were there to make sure there were gonna be 3's!! The 5's were there to satisfy those 2's which were of the Carnavar class!

    Oh, Duh azwyld! They would have had to have something to eat without destroying the twosies they were trying to save! [​IMG]

    I feel so silly for not noticing that before or being able to figure that one out!

    Ya know when people show pictures and do illustrations of the ark they are shown only the twosies. So I am thinking maybe some nonbelievers out there might pick up on that in the Bible like I did and I'm thankful to y'all for showing me the err of my ways! Now I can answer that with confidende! :D

    Well, if it were the one with the lovely Princess---then your multiple choice question still cannot be answered---because the real answer is not listed! The Ark, in Moses' case would be considered something along the lines of a Kayak or a Louisiana Pirogue! In Moses' case, the Ark would be considered something along the lines of the aircraft carrier, Teddy Roosevelt!

    I'm surprised at how many people think it took Noah a few months or years to build that ark too. 120 years people! And not one drop of rain during that time. Can't you just HEAR the neighbors? Or his mother in law!!

    Blackbird will now attempt to write a one sentence disertation on the problematic resolution of the reality of the idea of the reason that Noah's mother-in-law was not on board the ark.

    She didn't find grace in the eyes of the Lord.

    What I can't figure out is how Solomon was so wise when he had 1,000 mother in laws? [​IMG]

    Gib???

    Do you mean that if you were Soloman and had that many Mother-in-law's----that you would call the "Men in the White suits" on yourself????

    "Hello?? Brentwood??? Can you come pick me up??? And bring some help---this is gonna take more than your normal two men!!!!!"

    All of the animals came on the Ark in pairs.

    Except the worms. They came in apples.

    So is my Nick, MsGuidedAngel! He had taken prednisone only once this season tho.

    This photo is while taking Zyrtec and Singulair nightly, Benadryl at the time of the bite, Motrin every 8 hours and cortisone cream on the bite. This is at 24 hours after the bite.

    [​IMG]
    He got 13 bites while walking from the house next door to our house at dusk.
