1. Sodom And Gammorah
2. A pillar of fire
3. It was the Ancient of Days, which is yet another name for Jehovah, the God claimed by Christianity and Judaism.
4. A hot coal
5. The Lake of Fire
6. A flaming sword
7. As a bush in the wilderness that was on fire but did not burn (or, in some translations, burned, but was not consumed)
8. Fire where the hail hit (I'm catching a theme here)
9. Aaron, the first high priest
10. At which juncture? Usually, it was by giving them what they thought they wanted in a way they didn't want to teach them a lesson, like the time they were practically drowned by pheasants. I'm assuming this one involved fire, but I can't recall that one in particular.
11. Elijah the prophet, one of only two people to never die.
12. He called down fire from heaven, killing them all.
13. Mt. Carmel, but you failed to mention that it also consumed the water and dust around the alter.
14. This one, I don't know (*sniff)
15. Megiddo, a.k.a. Armageddon

Googled the question I missed. Moses said it in Deuteronomy, and Paul said it in his letter to the Hebrews.

I got some questions (though these have nothing to do with fire):

1.) How much is a woman worth according to the Old Testament?
2.) How much is a man?
3.) What is the penalty for a person who rapes a woman who is not gagged?
4.) Same question, but woman is gagged?
5.) What does Jesus say about slavery?

1. No value is specified, though I'm sure you're referring to the hefty sum of silver that must be paid to the family of a violated woman.
2. Again, no value is specified.
3. It depends. If she isn't gagged and is within earshot of any populated area, it is her responsibility to cry for help. If she doesn't cry out, then it must be assumed that she is consenting and the two are both stoned for fornication.
4. If she cannot cry out for whatever reason, then the man must marry her and pay a hefty sum to her father as compensation.
5. That a slave should obey his master and that any man owning slaves must release them on the sabbath year.

You got 3 out of 5.

A woman is worth 5 sheckels and a man is worth 10.

Don't get me wrong, I believe you, but I can't find that. Book, chapter, and verse please?
I know it's in Leviticus, but I can't remember where specifically. It's been a while since I read through the Bible.
