  • The Thousand Dollar Bible Puzzle

    This puzzle was written by a lady in Californiain response to an offer from a gentleman in Philadelphia that he would pay$1000 to anyone who could write a puzzle he could not solve. He failed to solve this puzzle, and paid the $1000. The answer to the puzzle isonly one word, and appears only four times in the Bible. Who am I?

    Adam, God made out of dust,
    But thought it best to make me first.
    So I was made before man
    To answer God's most Holy plan.
    A living thing I became,
    And Adam gave to me my name.
    I from His presence withdrew,
    And more of Adam never knew.
    I did my maker's law obey,
    Nor never went from it astray.
    Thousands of miles I go in fear
    But seldom on earth do I appear.
    For purpose wise-which God did see,
    He put a 'living soul' in me.
    A soul from me God did claim,
    And took from me the soul again.
    So when from me the soul had fled,
    I was the same as when first made.
    And without hands, or feet, or soul-
    I travel now from pole to pole.
    labor hard by day, by night
    To fallen man I give 'great light.'
    Thousands of people, young and old,
    Will, by my death, great light behold.
    No right or wrong can I conceive,
    The Scripture I cannot believe.
    Although my name therein is found,
    It is to me an empty sound.
    No fear of death doth trouble me,
    Real happiness I'll never see.
    To Heaven I shall never go,
    Neither, still, to hell below.
    Now, when these lines you slowly read,
    Go search your Bible with all speed.
    For that my name is written there,
    I honestly to you declare!
