eps1.91_redwheelbarr0w.txt - Prayer Pamphlet Solution
There is an odd pamphlet included between the pages of eps1.91_redwheelbarr0w.txt. After a church group meeting, Elliot found a tri-fold religious pamphlet on the desk in his cell.
The pamphlet is quite odd. The “comforting words” are seemingly random Bible quotes–not very comforting. So, I figured the chapter and verse numbers must not actually be random, and probably hid a message. The chapter signifies which line in the verse to look at, and the verse number identifies how many words into the verse to count. Here are the first 3 verses:
Proverbs 1:7 > The fear of the LORD is |the| beginning of knowledge: but fools despise wisdom and instruction Joshua 2:5 And it came to pass about the time of shutting of the > gate, when it was |dark|, that the men went out: whither the men went I wot not: pursue after them quickly; for ye shall overtake them. 1 Samuel 4:2 And the Philistines put themselves in array against Israel: and when they joined battle, Israel was smitten before the Philistines: and they slew of > the |army| in the field about four thousand men.
I was confident this method was correct because of the mention of the Dark Army. All the others worked the same, but I grabbed two words each from Hosea 1:8-9 and Job 2:9-10.
