The verb is the "action" word in a sentence, and it tells what the subject does. You should make and effort to find the verbs yourself. Some of these sentences have two verbs; if so, choose the one that describes what the sentence subject does.
For example, in #9, the subject is 'God' and the verb is 'tells'.
Post your answers to the others if you would like us to tell you if you got it right
