The Lion of Boaz-Jachin and Jachin-Boaz

SA4QE 2013 - Diana Slickman - Chicago Illinois, United States

A day late! (A day late and a dollar short, my 6th grade teacher would have said.) I realized in a panic yesterday evening that it was Russ's birthday and that I hadn't had, and wouldn't have, a chance to 4Qate. Despair!  This morning I grabbed, at random (as is my custom) a book from the Hoban stack. The Lion of Jachin-Boaz and Boaz-Jachin. Good.  I opened to a page that had a piece of paper (small, square, faded, yellow-ish) stuck in before it.  Read til I came to the passage that wanted to be quoted.
