They tied the rings of the breastpiece to the rings of the ephod with blue cord, connecting it to the waistband so that the breastpiece would not swing out from the ephod—as the Lord commanded Moses.
- Exodus 39:21
From the fellowship offering you are to bring a food offering to the Lord: the internal organs and all the fat that is connected to them, both kidneys with the fat on them near the loins, and the long lobe of the liver, which you will remove with the kidneys.
- Leviticus 3:3-4
Connections are important. Let’s look into another “Connect the Dots: quiz.
This quiz is full of ellipses (…). An ellipsis, those three little dots, denotes that something is missing or skipped or at the end, something else follows. In this quiz, nothing is missing, but things are not in the right order. There are beginnings, middles, and ends, just shuffled with each column. Your job is to “connect the dots.” That is, the Beginnings end with an ellipsis. Middles have an ellipsis on either side. And Ends start with an ellipsis. Connect the dots to make a sentence that is correct.
The “questions” in this case are ten Bible verses. These may not be your favorite verses to memorize. For one thing, they are long enough to divide into three parts. Since giving the Bible reference basically answers the questions, both the Bible references and Answers will be given consecutively.
To shuffle the middle and end pieces, they have been sorted in alphabetical order. The beginning is in biblical order.
|1||You will keep in perfect peace …||A||…because you are not under the law, …||i||… along with him, graciously give us all things?|
|2||So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. …||B||…but Christ lives in me. The life I now live in the body, …||ii||… and glorify your Father in heaven.|
|3||In the same way, let your light shine before others, …||C||…but gave him up for us all—how will he not also, …||iii||… because they trust in you.|
|4||Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, …||D||… for the good of those who love him, …||iv||… but under grace.|
|5||“Make a tree good and its fruit will be good, …||E||… for tomorrow will worry about itself. …||v||… Each day has enough trouble of its own.|
|6||For sin shall no longer be your master, …||F||… I will strengthen you and help you; …||vi||… for a tree is recognized by its fruit.|
|7||And we know that in all things God works …||G||… or make a tree bad and its fruit will be bad, …||vii||… I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.|
|8||He who did not spare his own Son, …||H||… that they may see your good deeds …||viii||… I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.|
|9||And if by grace, …||I||… then it cannot be based on works; …||ix||… if it were, grace would no longer be grace.|
|10||I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live,||J||… those whose minds are steadfast, …||x||… who have been called according to his purpose.|
I changed no punctuation other than adding the ellipses. I changed no capitalizations. A good test taker might use those two hints in solving most of this quiz without having the verses memorized.
And do not be double minded with doubt. One of the quiz questions reads properly from left to right.

Since you did so well, or maybe not, enjoy the Bethel Music singing and dancing to This is Amazing Grace.
And here is the Gaither Homecoming crowd singing There is a Fountain Filled with Blood, with a solo by Vestal Goodman.
And let’s get the tempo changed yet again with All over the World sung by Booth Brothers.
And back to the Bethel Music Kids with Deep Cries Out.
