lol, a nice companion piece to your featured quiz. I assume these are not the only words that feature just once? It would be an extraordinary coincidence if the only words to feature just once are also alphabetical!

14,565 words appear once, so I was spoilt for choice. I decided not to include Allonbachuth, Anetothite, Appointedst and Atarothaddar; perhaps I'll save those for an advanced version.

That makes more sense! I'm curious about the word 'car', and its context in the bible. Does your source give you the direct quote? I've tried to search for it online, but can't come up with anything.

I've written to the source website webmaster to ask them for this information. Will update you when I hear back.

Turns out it's a bit of a mistake: 'And the men of Israel went out from Mizpah and pursued the Philistines and struck them, as far as below Beth-car.' (Beth-car was a Philistine city.) So it's just coincidence and probably a bit of shoddy code.

Nice idea! It'd be fun to see the sentences where they appear but I guess that's too complicated to find out

1 Samuel 7:11 says: "And the men of Israel went out of Mizpeh, and pursued the Philistines, and smote them, until they came under Beth Car." Beth means "house of" and Car must be a name.

Ah, that makes sense. I was thinking perhaps it was being used as an alternate term for "carriage" or "chariot", or at least, I thought I had seen it used that way somewhere.

Actually, the Bible never had the word "car" in it. Its the word "Bethcär", but it has a hyphen in the middle because they ran out of room on the page.

Hmm one of my favorite trivia facts is that the word "girl" is only in the bible once. Why wasn't this included?

I could only choose one G word! But it's true, "girl" only appears once, at Joel 3:3.

Got them all but Zara! The fun part was trying to think if I could tell what verse or story they might be from.

The "hindu entry" isn't very hindu. Rama is the New Testament version of Ramah, a city which is mentioned quite a few times in the Old Testament.
