What is Lebanon?
Remember that Jeopardy! defaults to the King James version of the Bible!
Psalm 92 reads:
The righteous shall flourish like the palm tree: he shall grow like a cedar in Lebanon.
I Kings 5 says:
And Hiram sent to Solomon, saying, I have considered the things which thou sentest to me for: and I will do all thy desire concerning timber of cedar, and concerning timber of fir.
My servants shall bring them down from Lebanon unto the sea: and I will convey them by sea in floats unto the place that thou shalt appoint me, and will cause them to be discharged there, and thou shalt receive them: and thou shalt accomplish my desire, in giving food for my household.
(Hiram I of Tyre furnished the cedar timbers for the Temple of Solomon in Jerusalem.)
Of course, the Cedar of Lebanon features prominently on the flag of Lebanon.
