Dictionary

1910 New Catholic Dictionary - Number, Golden
Name applied to each of the 19 numbers representing the cycle of lunar years into which Meton (432 B.C.) divided the calendar subsequent to his discoyery that after 19 solar years had elapsed the new moon would occur on the same days in the years indicated by identical numbers. They are so called because the number for each current year was inscribed in gold on an Athenian temple pillar.
Hastings' Dictionary of the Bible - Number
NUMBER
1. Notation . The decimal scale of notation was used by the Israelites, Assyrians, Babylonians, Egyptians, Greeks, Romans, and, so far as we know, by the other nations mentioned in the Bible, i.e . they reckoned by units, tens, hundreds, etc.
2. Variety and range of numerical terminology . The Heb. language expressed the integers from one to any amount by words denoting units, tens, a hundred, two hundred, a thousand, two thousand, ten thousand, twenty thousand, and by combinations of these words. Thus the highest number expressed by a single word is twenty thousand, the word used meaning double ten thousand. The word ‘millions’ in AV [1] of Genesis 24:60 is a mistranslation; it should be ‘ten thousands’ as in RV [2] . The number referred to in this verse,’ thousands of ten thousands,’ for the descendants hoped for from Rebekah, and the number of the angels in Daniel 7:10 , Revelation 5:11 , ‘thousand thousands ministered unto him, and ten thousand times ten thousand stood before him,’ if taken literally, would be the largest numbers mentioned in the Bible, but they are merely rhetorical phrases for countless, indefinitely large numbers. In Revelation 7:9 the redeemed are ‘a great multitude which no man could number’ (cf. Genesis 13:16 ) the nearest approach which the Bible makes to the mathematical idea of infinity.
The largest literal number in the Bible is the number of Israelites fit for warlike service, ascertained by David’s census as 1,100,000, in addition to the men of Judah 470,000 (1 Chronicles 21:6 ). In 2 Samuel 24:9 , however, the numbers are 800,000 and 500,000 respectively. Close to this comes the army of Zerah ( 2 Chronicles 14:9 ), ‘a thousand thousand,’ i.e . 1,000,000; and in 2 Chronicles 17:12 ff., Jehoshaphat has an army in five divisions, of 300,000, 280,000, 200,000, 200,000, 180,000 respectively. The number of fighting men amongst the Israelites is given in Numbers 2:32 as 603,550; and later on in Numbers 26:51 as 601,730.
Hebrew also possessed a few special forms for the ordinals, first, second, etc., and to denote ‘seven times,’ etc.; in other cases, especially for the higher numbers, the cardinals are used. There are also a few words for fractions, ‘a third,’ ‘a quarter.”
The Biblical Greek calls for no special comment; the writers had at their disposal the ordinary resources of Hellenistic Greek. We may, however, call attention to the disputed rendering in Matthew 18:22 , where RV [2] has ‘seventy times seven,’ RVm [4] ‘seventy times and seven.’
3. Symbols . In the Heb. text of the OT, and also for the most part in the Gr. text of the NT, numbers are denoted by words. This method is also the only one used in the two ancient Heb. inscriptions the Moabite Stone (rather later than Ahab), and the Siloam inscription (usually ascribed to the time of Hezekiah). As the Assyrians, Egyptians, and Phœnicians used figures as well as words to denote numbers, it is possible that the Israelites also had arithmetical figures; but at present there is no positive evidence of such a usage.
In later times the Jews used consonants as numerical signs; the units from one to nine were denoted by the first nine letters, the tens from ten to ninety by the next nine, and the hundreds from one hundred to four hundred by the remaining four letters. Other numbers were denoted by combinations of letters. A curious feature of this system is that the natural combination for 15, viz. Yod = 10, = Hebrews 5:1-14 , was not used because’ Yod, He ,’ or Yah was a form of the sacred name Yahweh , which might not be pronounced; accordingly Teth = 9 and Waw = 6 were substituted. This system is still commonly used to number the chapters and verses in Heb. Bibles. A similar system was also used by the Greeks, and is occasionally found in the NT; thus the Number of the Beast, 666, in Revelation 13:18 , is written by means of three letters.
4. Arithmetic . There is no evidence of proficiency in arithmetic beyond the simplest operations, but we have examples of addition in connexion with the census in the wilderness, the numbers of the separate tribes being given first and then the total ( Numbers 1:22 ff; Numbers 26:7 ff.); subtraction is referred to in Leviticus 27:18 ; an instance of multiplication is Leviticus 25:8 ; Leviticus 25:7 × 7 = 49; and Leviticus 25:50 implies a kind of rule of three sum.
5. Round Numbers . As in other languages, ‘round numbers,’ exact tens, hundreds, thousands, etc., must often have been used by the Israelites, on the understanding that they were only approximately accurate; and in the same way smaller numbers were sometimes used indefinitely for ‘a few’; cf. our ‘half a dozen.’ For Instance, the exact ten thousands of Jehoshaphat’s armies given above are doubtless round numbers. Again, in Leviticus 26:8 , ‘five of you shall chase a hundred,’ merely means, ‘a handful of you shall put to flight many times your own number.’ This indefinite use of a small number is specially common where two consecutive units are given as alternatives, e.g . Isaiah 17:6 , ‘two or three,’ ‘four or five.’ A variety of this idiom is the use of two consecutive units to Introduce emphatically the higher of the two; e.g . Proverbs 30:21 ‘For three things the earth doth tremble, and for four which it cannot bear’; then four things are enumerated. In addition to hundreds and thousands and ten thousands, the most common number used in this approximate way is ‘forty’: people constantly live or reign for ‘forty years’ or multiples of forty years. It is a matter of opinion how far the numerous ‘sevens,’ ‘tens,’ and ‘twelves’ were originally intended as exact numbers. Probably, however, in many cases what were originally round numbers were taken afterwards to be exact. For instance, David’s reign is given as 40 years, 2 Samuel 5:4 ; in the next verse this period is explained as made up of 7 1 / 2 years at Hebron and 33 at Jerusalem an explanation which implies that, apart from some odd months, the 40 years were the actual length of the reign. There are some indications, too. that the various 40’s and 80’s were added in with other numbers to obtain a continuous chronology. Again, in Numbers 3:39 the census gives 22,000 Levites, which one would naturally understand as a round number; but in Numbers 3:43-51 it is taken as an exact number, inasmuch as it is ordained that because the 22,273 firstborn exceed the Levites by 273, redemption-money shall be paid for the surplus.
In view of the references to captains of thousands, hundreds, fifties, and tens in Deuteronomy 1:15 , it has been suggested that these terms are sometimes not numerals, but names corresponding to our regiment, company, squad, etc., and denoting bodies of men whose numbers varied. ‘ Thousand ’ especially has been held to be a term denoting ‘tribe’ or ‘clan’ (see Judges 6:15 , 1 Samuel 10:19 ); so that ‘a thousand’ might contain comparatively few men. This view has been applied to make the census in the Bk. of Numbers more credible by reducing the total amounts; but it is clear that the narrative as it stands intends ‘thousand’ to be a numeral, and does not use the word for a ‘clan.’
6. Accuracy of numbers . Without attempting an exhaustive consideration of the accuracy of numbers as given by the original authors, we may point out that we should not expect a large measure of mathematical accuracy even in original numbers. Often, as we have seen, they are apparently given as round numbers. Moreover, in the case of large numbers they would seldom be ascertained by careful enumeration. The numbers of armies especially hostile armies of slain, and so forth, would usually he given on a rough estimate; and such estimates are seldom accurate, but for the most part exaggerated. Moreover, primitive historical criticism revelled in constructing hypothetical statistics on the slightest data, or, to put the matter less prosaically, the Oriental imagination loved to play with figures, the larger the better.
But apart from any question as to the accuracy of the original figures, the transmission of the text by repeated copying for hundreds and thousands of years introduces a large element of uncertainty. If we assume that numbers were denoted by figures in early times, figures are far more easily altered, omitted, or added than words; but, as we have seen, we have at present no strong ground for such an assumption. But even when words are used, the words denoting numbers in Hebrew are easily confused with each other, as in English. Just as ‘eight’ and ‘eighty’ differ only by a single letter; so in Hebrew, especially in the older style of writing, the addition of a single letter would make ‘three’ into ‘thirty, etc. etc. And, again, in copying numerals the scribe is not kept right by the context as he is with other words. It was quite possible, too, for a scribe to have views of his own as to what was probable in the way of numbers, and to correct what he considered erroneous.
A comparison of the various manuscripts, versions, etc., in which our books have been preserved, shows that numbers are specially subject to alteration, and that in very many cases we are quite uncertain as to what numbers were given in the original text, notably where the numbers are large. Even where the number of a body of men, the length of a period, etc., are given twice over or oftener in different passages of the Bible itself, the numbers are often different; those in Chronicles, for instance, sometimes differ from those in Samuel and Kings, as in the case of David’s census mentioned above. Then, as regards manuscripts, etc., we may take one or two striking instances. The chief authorities for the text of the Pentateuch are the Heb. text in Jewish MSS, the Hebrew text in Samaritan MSS, and the Greek translation, the Septuagint. Now the numbers connected with the ages of the patriarchs are largely different in these three authorities; e.g . in the Jewish text Methuselah lives to the age of 969, and is the longest lived of the patriarchs; in the Samaritan he lives only to be 720, and is surpassed by many of the other patriarchs; and the interval from the Creation to the Flood is 2262 years in the Septuagint, 1656 in the Jewish text, 1307 in the Samaritan text. Again, the number of persons on board the ship on which St. Paul was shipwrecked is given in some MSS as 276, and in others as 76 ( Acts 27:37 ); and similarly the number of the Beast is variously given as 666 and as 616 ( Revelation 13:18 ).
The probability that many mistakes in numbers have been introduced into the Bible by copyists in the course of the transmission of the text has long been admitted. For instance, in the fifth edition of Horne’s Introduction to the Critical Study and Knowledge of the Holy Scriptures , published in 1825, a thoroughly old-fashioned apologetic work, we are told that ‘Chronological differences,’ i.e . discrepancies, ‘do undoubtedly exist in the Scriptures.… Differences in chronology do not imply that the sacred historians were mistaken, but they arise from the mistakes of transcribers or expositors’; and again, ‘It is reasonable to make abatements, and not always to insist rigorously on precise numbers, in adjusting the accounts of scriptural chronology’ (i. 550 f.).
7. Favourite numbers and their symbolism . Naturally the units, and after them some of the even tens, hundreds, and thousands, were most frequently in use, and came to have special associations and significance, and a fraction would in some measure share the importance of its corresponding unit, e.g . where ‘four’ occurred often we should also expect to meet with a ‘fourth.’
One , suggesting the idea of uniqueness, self-sufficiency, and indivisibility, is specially emphasized in relation to the Divine Unity: ‘Jahweh our God, Jahweh is one’ ( Deuteronomy 6:4 ); and similarly Ephesians 4:5 f. ‘one Lord, one faith, one baptism, one God and Father’; and other Like passages.
Two . There were two great lights; men frequently had two wives (Lamech, Jacob, Elkanah); two sons (Abraham, Isaac, Joseph); two daughters (Lot, Laban, Saul). Or again, where a man had one wife, there was a natural couple; and so with animals; in one account of the Flood they go in ‘two by two.’ Two men often went together, e.g . Joshua’s spies ( Joshua 2:1 ); and the Twelve and the Seventy went out by twos. The fact that men have two eyes, hands, etc., also gave a special currency to the number. Two objects or animals are often required for ritual purposes ( e.g . Leviticus 14:22 ). There were two tables of stone. Similarly, a half would be a familiar fraction; it is most common in ‘the half tribe of Manasseh.’
As sets of two were common in nature and in human society, so in a somewhat less degree were sets of three, and in a continuously lessening degree sets of four, five, etc. etc. In each case we shall refer only to striking examples.
Three . Three is common in periods; e.g . David is offered a choice between three days’ pestilence, three months’ defeat, and three years’ famine ( 1 Chronicles 21:12 ; 2 Samuel 24:18 has seven years); Christ is ‘three days and three nights’ in the tomb ( Matthew 12:40 , cf. John 2:19 ).
Deities often occur in groups of three, sometimes father, mother, and child; e.g . the Egyptian Osiris, Isis, and Horus. There are also the Babylonian triads, e.g . Bel, Anu, and Ea. Division into three is common; an attacking army is often divided into three parts, e.g . Gideon’s ( Judges 7:16 ; cf. also Revelation 8:10 ; Revelation 8:12 ).
Four . The square, as the simplest plane figure, suggests four, and is a common shape for altars, rooms, etc.; hence four corners, pillars, the four winds, the four quarters of the earth, N., S., E., W. Irenæus argues that there must be four canonical Gospels because there are four cherubim, four winds, and four quarters of the earth.
Five, Ten , and multiples obtain their currency through the habit of reckoning in tens, which again is probably derived from counting on the ten fingers. The fraction tenth is conspicuous as the tithe; and fifth and tenth parts of measures occur in the ritual.
Six, Twelve , and multiples are specially frequent in reference to time: 12 months, and its half, six months, 12 hours, sixth hour, etc., partly in connexion with the 12 signs of the Zodiac, and the approximate division of the solar year into 12 lunar months. It is suggested that the number 12 for the tribes of Israel was fixed by the Zodiac; in the lists the number 12 is obtained only by omitting Levi or Dan, or by substituting Joseph for Ephraim and Manasseh. When the number 12 was established for the tribes, its currency and that of its multiples were thus further extended; e.g . the 12 Apostles, the 144,000 of the Apocalypse, etc.
Seven and multiples. A specially sacred character is popularly ascribed to the number seven; and although the Bible does not expressly endorse this idea, yet it is supported by the frequent occurrence of the number in the ritual, the sacred seventh day, the Sabbath; the sacred seventh year, the Sabbatical year; the Jubilee year, the year following seven times seven years; the seven-branched candlestick; sevenfold sprinkling ( Leviticus 4:6 etc.); seven lambs offered ( Numbers 28:11 ff.); forgiveness till 70 times 7 ( Matthew 18:22 ); the seven churches of Asia; seven angels; seven stars, etc.; fourteen generations ( Matthew 1:17 ); 70 descendants of Jacob ( Exodus 1:5 ); 70 years’ captivity, etc. ( Jeremiah 25:11 , Daniel 9:2 , Zechariah 7:5 ); 70 missioners ( Luke 10:1 ). A similar use of ‘seven’ is found in the Egyptian, Assyrian, and Persian religions, and is often derived from astral worship of the seven heavenly bodies, the sun, moon, and the five planets known to the ancients. It is also connected with the seven-day week as roughly a quarter of the lunar month, seven being the nearest integer to the quarter of 29 1 /2. The Pleiades also were thought of as seven (cf. Amos 5:8 ).
Eight . There were eight persons in the ark; a boy was circumcised on the eighth day. Ezekiel’s ritual has a certain predilection for the number eight.
Forty . This number apparently owes its vogue to the view that 40 was the approximate or perhaps average length of a generation; at least this is a common view. It is a little difficult to reconcile with the well-known Oriental custom of early marriage. The number might perhaps be obtained by taking the average of the years of a man’s age at which his children were born, though such an explanation does not appear very probable. Or the use of 40 for a generation might be a relic of the period when the youngest born succeeded to the family tent and sacra . At any rate 40 is well established as a moderate round number between ‘a few’ and ‘a very great many.’ Thus, in addition to the numerous reigns, oppressions, and deliverances of 40, 80 years, etc., Isaac and Esau marry at the age of 40; there are 40 years of the wandering; Ezekiel’s 40 years’ captivity ( Ezekiel 29:11 ); 40 days was the period Moses spent in the Mount, Elijah and Christ fasted in the wilderness, etc.
A certain mystical value is attached to numbers in later Jewish and Christian philosophy and superstition, perhaps due partly to the ideas suggested by the relations of numbers to each other, and to the practical power of arithmetic; the symbols which aided men so effectually seemed to have some inherent force of their own. Or, again, if ‘seven’ is sacred, to pronounce a formula seven times must be more effective than to pronounce it six or eight times.
Great importance is attached to numbers in the mediæval Jewish mystical system, the Kabbala . There are ten sephiroth or primary emanations from God, one original sephira , and three derivative triads; there are twelve channels of Divine grace; 613 commandments, etc.
8. Gematria , a Hebraized form of the Greek geometria , used to mean ‘reckoning by numbers,’ was a late development of which there are traces in the OT. It consisted in indicating a word by means of the number which would be obtained by adding together the numerical values of the consonants of the word. Thus in Genesis 14:14 Abraham has 318 ‘trained servants,’ 318 is the sum of the consonants of the name of Abraham’s steward Eliezer in its original Hebrew form. The number is apparently constructed from the name.
The Apocalyptic number of the Beast is often explained by Gematria, and 666 has been discovered to be the sum of the numerical values of the letters of some form or other of a large number of names written either in Hebrew, or Greek, or Latin. Thus the Beast has been identified with hundreds of persons, e.g . Mohammed, Luther, the Pope, Napoleon i., Napoleon iii. etc., each of whom was specially obnoxious to the ingenious identifier. Probably by a little careful manipulation, any name in some form or other, in Hebrew, Greek, or Latin, could be made by Gematria to yield 666. The two favourite explanations are Lateinos = Latinus (the Roman Empire or Emperor), and Nero Cœsar . The latter has the special advantage that it accounts not only for 666, but also for the various reading 616 mentioned above; as Neron Cœsar it gives 666, and as Nero Cœsar , 616.

Fausset's Bible Dictionary - Number
After the captivity the Hebrew used the alphabet letters for numbers, 'Αleph ( א ) equalling 1; Βet[1] ( ב ) equalling 2, etc.; Υod[1] ( י ) equalling 10; Qoph ( ק ) equalling 100, etc. The final letters expressed 500 to 900; 'Αleph ( א ) + a line over it equalling 1000. Our manuscripts all write numbers at full length. But the variations make it likely that letters (which copyists could so easily mistake) originally were written for numbers: compare 2 Kings 24:8 with 1 Maccabees 4:52-560; Isaiah 7:8, where 65 is in one reading, 16 and 5 in another. 1 Samuel 6:19 has 50,070, but Syriac and Arabic 5070 (1 Kings 4:26 with 2 Chronicles 9:25). Numbers also have often a symbolical rather than a mere arithmetical value. But straining is to be avoided, and subtle trifling. The author's sense, history, the context, and the general analogy of the Scripture scheme as a whole are to be examined, in order to decide whether a figure is employed in a merely ordinary sense, or in an ordinary and symbolical, or in an exclusively symbolical sense.
Zechariah and Daniel dwell upon seven; Daniel and Revelation use several numbers to "characterize periods", rather than indicate arithmetical duration. Science reveals in crystallization and chemical combinations what an important part number plays in the proportion of combining molecules of organic and inorganic life.
Two notes "intensification" (Genesis 41:32), "requital in full" (Job 42:10; Jeremiah 16:18; Isaiah 61:7; Revelation 18:6); the proportions of the temple were double those of the tabernacle; two especially symbolizes "testimony" (Zechariah 4:11; Zechariah 11:7; Isaiah 8:2; Revelation 11:3), two tables of the testimony (Exodus 31:18), two cherubim over the ark of the testimony. God is His own witness; but that witness is twofold, "His word and His oath" (Hebrews 6:13; Hebrews 6:17), "Himself and His Son" (John 8:18).
Three, like seven, is "a divine number". The Trinity (Revelation 1:4; Revelation 4:8); three great feasts (Exodus 23:14-17; Deuteronomy 16:16); the threefold blessing (Numbers 6:14; Numbers 6:24); the thrice holy (Isaiah 6:3); the three hours of prayer (Daniel 6:10; Psalms 55:17); the third heaven (2 Corinthians 12:2). Christ is "the Way, the Truth, the Life," "Prophet, Priest, and King." The threefold theophany (Genesis 18:2; 1 Samuel 3:4; 1 Samuel 3:6; 1 Samuel 3:8; Numbers 33:1-501).
The number 3 1/2, one-half of 7, is "a period of evil cut short", shortened for the elect's sake (Matthew 24:22; James 5:17, three years' and a half drought in Israel; Luke 4:25; Revelation 11:2-3; Revelation 11:9; Revelation 12:6). Daniel 7:25; Daniel 12:7, time, times, and a half, 1,260 days, three days and a half. The 42 months (30 days in each) answer to the 1,260 days; three years and a half equals 1,260 days (360 in each year). Probably the 1,260 years of the papal rule date from A.D. 754, when his temporal power began, and end 2014. (See ANTICHRIST.)
At the close of spurious Christianity's long rule open antichristianity and persecution will prevail for the three years and a half before the millennium. Witnessing churches will be followed by witnessing individuals, even as the apostate church will give place to the personal man of sin (Daniel 7:25; Revelation 11:2-3). The 2,300 (Daniel 8:14) years may date from Alexander's conquests (323 B.C.), and end about the same time as the 1,260, namely, 1977. The 1,290 (Daniel 12:11-12) and 1,335 days correspond to 1290, during which Antiochus Epiphanes profaned the temple, from the month Ijar, 145th year of the era of the Seleucidae, to Judas Maccabeus' restoration of worship, the 25th day of the ninth month Chisleu, 148th year (1 Maccabees 1:54; 1618384533_91); in 45 days more Antiochus died, ending the Jews' calamities; in all 1,335. Again, 1,260, 1,290 and 1,335 may be counted from Mahomet's retirement to the cave, A.D. 606-610, and his flight from Mecca, 622: these figures added may mark the closing epochs of Mahometan power.
Again, the 2,300 may be the years between 480 B.C., the time of Xerxes' invasion of Greece (Daniel 11:2), and A.D. 1820, when Ali Pasha cast off the yoke of the Porte and precipitated the Greek revolution. Thirdly, the 2,300 may date from Antichrist's profanation (Daniel 9:27). After the 1,260 days Jesus in person will deliver the Jews; during the 30 more their consciences are awakened to penitent faith, making 1,290; in 45 more Israel's outcasts are gathered, and the united blessing descends. These all are conjectures. Evidently these numbers symbolize the long "Gentile times" from the overthrow of Judah's kingdom by Babylon, and of Jerusalem by Titus, down to the restoration of the theocracy in Him "whose right it is" (Ezekiel 21:27). The seven times of Israel's punishment (Leviticus 26:18; Leviticus 26:21-24) are the times of the Gentile monarchies; the seven times of antichrist's tyranny in the Holy Land will be the recapitulation and open consummation of what is as yet "the mystery of iniquity."
The three and a half during which the two witnesses prophesy in sackcloth is the sacred seven halved, for the antichristian world powers' time is broken at best, and is followed immediately by judgment on them. It answers to the three years and a half of Christ's witness for the truth, when the Jews disowned and the God-opposed world power crucified Him (Daniel 9:27). He died in the midst of the last of the 70 weeks; the three and a half which seemed the world's triumph over Him was immediately followed by their defeat in His resurrection (John 12:31). The world powers never reach the sacred fullness of seven times 360, i.e. 2,520, though they approach it in the 2,300 (Daniel 8:14). The 42 months answer to Israel's 42 sojournings in the desert (1618384533_97), contrasted with the sabbatic rest of Canaan. Three and a half represents "the church's time of toil, pilgrimage, persecution". Three and a half is "the antagonism to seven".
Four symbolizes "worldwide extension". The four winds and quarters of the earth (Revelation 7:1; Daniel 7:2). The four living creatures or cherubim with four wings and four faces (Ezekiel 1:5, etc.; Revelation 4:6, in contrast to the four beasts, Daniel 7; Daniel 2:40 the four kingdoms); Eden's four streams (Genesis 2:10; Ezekiel 40:47). Four expresses "the spread of God's kingdom over the earth". As Christ's seamless vest marks its unity, so the rending of the outer garment into four by the four Roman soldiers symbolizes its ultimate worldwide extension (John 19:23-24). The numbers especially symbolical are 3, 4, 7, 10, 12, 40; 6 is so because coming short of the "sacred" 7, 8 as coming after 7 and introducing "a new series or era".
Three and a half is seven broken in two. The Bible begins with seven days, and ends with a succession of sevens. Seven represents "rest and release from toil", also "a divine work", in judgment or mercy or revelation (Genesis 4:24; Genesis 41:3; Genesis 41:7; Matthew 18:22; Exodus 7:25). Leviticus 26:18, "I will punish you seven times more for your sins," Leviticus 26:21-24; Leviticus 26:28; Isaiah 4:1; Isaiah 11:15; 2 Samuel 24:13. Daniel 4:16; Daniel 4:25, "seven times shall pass over thee" (Nebuchadnezzar). Revelation 15:1, "the seven last plagues." "divine fullness and completeness" is the thing signified; as Revelation 1:4, "the seven spirits ... before His throne" are "the one Holy Spirit in His manifold fullness"; Isaiah 11:2-3 corresponds.
So in offerings and divine rites: Leviticus 12:2; Leviticus 12:5; Leviticus 13:4; Leviticus 13:6; Leviticus 13:21-26; Leviticus 13:31; Leviticus 13:33; Leviticus 13:50; Leviticus 13:54; Leviticus 14:7-8; Leviticus 14:9; Leviticus 14:16; Leviticus 14:27; Leviticus 14:38; Leviticus 14:51; Leviticus 15:13; Leviticus 15:19; Leviticus 15:28; Leviticus 16:14; Leviticus 16:19; Numbers 12:14; 2 Kings 5:10; 2 Kings 5:14. The seven days' grace (Genesis 7:1-10); and at the taking of Jericho (Joshua 5:13-6:20); the antitype, spiritual Babylon, shall fall at the sounding of the seventh trumpet (Revelation 11:13; Revelation 11:15; Revelation 14:8). The sevenfold candlestick (Exodus 25:37), the seven churches corresponding (Revelation 1:12; Revelation 1:20), the seven deacons (Acts 6), the sevenfold ministry (Romans 12; 1 Corinthians 12). Seven prayers are given in full in the Old Testament. (See PRAYER.) Seven petitions of the Lord's prayer in the New Testament. The seven beatitudes (Matthew 5; Psalms 12:7). Satan mimics the "divine" seven (Proverbs 6:16; Proverbs 26:25): Mary Magdalene's seven devils (Mark 16:9; Luke 8:2); the unclean spirit returning with seven (Matthew 12:45); the seven Canaanite nations subdued by Israel (Deuteronomy 7:1; Acts 13:19); the dragon with seven heads and s
King James Dictionary - Number
NUM'BER, n. Probably the radical sense is to speak, name or tell, as our word tell, in the other dialects, is to number. Number may be allied to name, as the Spaniards use nombre for name, and the French word written with the same letters, is number.
1. The designation of a unit reference to other units, or in reckoning, counting, enumerating as, one is the first number a simple number. 2. An assemblage of two or more units. Two is a number composed of one and one added. Five and three added make the number eight. Number may be applied to any collection or multitude of units or individuals, and therefore is indefinite, unless defined by other words or by figures or signs of definite signification. Hence, 3. More than one many. Ladies are always of great use to the party they espouse, and never fail to win over numbers.
4. Multitude. Number itself importeth not much in armies, where the men are of weak courage.
5. In poetry, measure the order and quantity of syllables constituting feet, which render verse musical to the ear. The harmony of verse consists in the proper distribution of the long and short syllables, with suitable pauses. In oratory, a judicious disposition of words, syllables and cadences constitutes a kind of measure resembling poetic numbers. 6. Poetry verse. I lisped in numbers, for the numbers came.
Here the first word numbers may be taken for poetry or verse, and the second for measure.
Yet shoud the Muses bid my numbers roll.
7. In grammar, the difference of termination or form of a word, to express unity or plurality. The termination which denotes one or an individual, is the singular number the termination that denotes two or more individuals or units, constitues the plural number. Hence we say, a noun, an adjective, a pronoun or a verb is in the singular or the plural number. 8. In mathematics, number is variously distinguished. cardinal numbers are those which express the amount of units as 1.2.3.4.5.6.7.8.9.10. Ordinal numbers are those which express order as first, second, third, fourth, &c. Determinate number, is that referred to a given unit, as a ternary or three an indeterminate number, is referred to unity in general, and called quantity.
Homogeneal numbers, are those referred to the same units those referred to different units are termed heterogeneal.
Whole numbers, are called integers.
A rational number, is one commensurable with unity. A number incommensurable with unity, is termed irrational or surd.
A prime or primitive number, is divisible only by unity as three, five, seven, &c.
A perfect number, is that whose aliquot parts added together, make the whole number, as 28, whose aliquot parts, 14. 7. 4. 2. 1. make the number 28.
An imperfect number, is that whose aliquot parts added together, make more or less than the number. This is abundant or defedtive abundant, as 12, whose aliquot parts, 6. 4. 3. 2. 1. make 16 or defective, as 16 whose aliquot parts, 8. 4. 2. 1. make 15 only.
A square number, is the product of a number multiplied by itself as, 16 is the square number of four.
A cubic number, is the product of a square number by its root as, 27 is the product of the square number 9 by its root 3.
Golden number, the cycle of the moon, or revolution of 19 years, in which time the conjunctions, oppositions and other aspects of the moon are nearly the same as they were on the same days of the month 19 years before.
NUM'BER,
1. To count to reckon to ascertain the units of any sum, collection or multitude. If a man can number the dust of the earth, then shall thy seed also be numbered. Genesis 8 .
2. To reckon as one of a collection or multitude. He was numbered with the transgressors. Isaiah 53 .
Holman Bible Dictionary - Number Systems And Number Symbolism
To understand properly the number systems of the biblical world, one must look to the neighbors of Israel. The Egyptians were already using relatively advanced mathematics by 3000 B.C. The construction of such structures as the pyramids required an understanding of complex mathematics. The Egyptian system was decimal. The Sumerians by that same time had developed their own number system. In fact, the Sumerians knew two systems, one based on ten (a decimal system) and one based on six or twelve (usually designated as a duodecimal system). We still make use of remnants of the Sumerian system today in our reckoning of time—12 hours for day and 12 hours for night, 60 minutes and 60 seconds as divisions of time. We also divide a circle into 360 degrees. Our calendar was originally based on the same division with the year having 12 months of 30 days for a total of 360. Even our units of the dozen (12) and gross (144) and inches to the foot may have their origin in the Sumerian mathematical system.
The Hebrews did not develop the symbols to represent numbers until the postexilic period (after 539 B.C.). In all preexilic inscriptions, small numbers are represented by individual strokes (for example, //// for four). Larger numbers were either represented with Egyptian symbols, or the name of the number was written out (“four” for the number 4). The Arad inscriptions regularly used Egyptian symbols for numbers, individual strokes for the units and hieratic numbers for 5,10, and larger numbers. The Samaria ostraca more frequently wrote out the number. Letters of the Hebrew alphabet are first used to represent numbers on coins minted in the Maccabean period (after 167 B.C.).
With the coming of the Hellenistic and Roman periods to Palestine, Greek symbols for numbers and Roman numerals appeared. The Greeks used letters of their alphabet to represent numerals, while the Romans used the familiar symbols I,V,X,L,C,M, and so on
Biblical passages show that the Hebrews were well acquainted with the four basic mathematical operations of addition (Numbers 1:20-46 ), subtraction (Genesis 18:28-33 ), multiplication (Numbers 7:84-86 ), and division (Numbers 31:27 ). The Hebrews also used fractions such as a half (Genesis 24:22 ), a third (Numbers 15:6 ), and a fourth (Exodus 29:40 ).
In addition to their usage to designate specific numbers or quantities, many numbers in the Bible came to have a symbolic meaning. Thus seven came to symbolize completeness and perfection. God's work of creation was both complete and perfect—and it was completed in seven days. All of mankind's existence was related to God's creative activity. The seven-day week reflected God's first creative activity. The sabbath was that day of rest following the work week, reflective of God's rest (Genesis 1:1-2:4 ). Israelites were to remember the land also and give it a sabbath, permitting it to lie fallow in the seventh year (Leviticus 25:2-7 ). Seven was also important in cultic matters beyond the sabbath: major festivals such as Passover and Tabernacles lasted seven days as did wedding festivals (Judges 14:12 ,Judges 14:12,14:17 ). In Pharaoh's dream, the seven good years followed by seven years of famine (Genesis 41:1-36 ) represented a complete cycle of plenty and famine. Jacob worked a complete cycle of years for Rachel; then, when he was given Leah instead, he worked an additional cycle of seven (Genesis 29:15-30 ).
A major Hebrew word for making an oath or swearing, shava' , was closely related to the word seven , sheva' . The original meaning of “swear an oath” may have been “to declare seven times” or “to bind oneself by seven things.”
A similar use of the number seven can be seen in the New Testament. The seven churches (Revelation 2-3 ) perhaps symbolized by their number all the churches. Jesus taught that forgiveness is not to be limited, even to a full number or complete number of instances. We are to forgive, not merely seven times (already a gracious number of forgivenesses), but seventy times seven (limitless forgiveness, beyond keeping count) (Matthew 18:21-22 ).
As the last example shows, multiples of seven frequently had symbolic meaning. The year of Jubilee came after the completion of every forty-nine years. In the year of Jubilee all Jewish bondslaves were released and land which had been sold reverted to its former owner (Leviticus 25:8-55 ). Another multiple of seven used in the Bible is seventy. Seventy elders are mentioned (Exodus 24:1 ,Exodus 24:1,24:9 ). Jesus sent out the seventy (Luke 10:1-17 ). Seventy years is specified as the length of the Exile (Jeremiah 25:12 , Jeremiah 29:10 ; Daniel 9:1 : 2 ). The messianic kingdom was to be inaugurated after a period of seventy weeks of years had passed (Daniel 9:24 ).
After seven, the most significant number for the Bible is undoubtedly twelve. The Sumerians used twelve as one base for their number system. Both the calendar and and the signs of the Zodiac reflect this twelve base number system. The tribes of Israel and Jesus' disciples numbered twelve. The importance of the number twelve is evident in the effort to maintain that number. When Levi ceased to be counted among the tribes, the Joseph tribes, Ephraim and Manasseh, were counted separately to keep the number twelve intact. Similarly, in the New Testament, when Judas Iscariot committed suicide, the eleven moved quickly to add another to keep their number at twelve. Twelve seems to have been especially significant in the Book of Revelation. New Jerusalem had twelve gates; its walls had twelve foundations (Revelation 21:12-14 ). The tree of life yielded twelve kinds of fruit (Revelation 22:2 ).
Multiples of twelve are also important. There were twenty-four divisions of priests (1 Chronicles 24:4 ), and twenty-four elders around the heavenly throne (Revelation 4:4 ). Seventy-two elders, when one includes Eldad and Medad, were given a portion of God's spirit that rested on Moses, and they prophesied (Numbers 11:24-26 ). An apocryphal tradition holds that seventy-two Jewish scholars, six from each of the twelve tribes, translated the Old Testament into Greek, to give us the version we call today the Septuagint. The 144,000 servants of God (Revelation 7:4 ), were made up of 12,000 from each of the twelve tribes of Israel.
Three as a symbolic number often indicated completeness. The created cosmos had three elements: heaven, earth, and underworld. Three Persons make up the Godhead: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Prayer was to be lifted at least three times daily (Daniel 6:10 ; compare Psalm 55:1 : 17 ). The sanctuary had three main parts: vestibule, nave, inner sanctuary (1 Kings 6:1 ). Three-year-old animals were mature and were, therefore, prized for special sacrifices (1 Samuel 1:24 ; Genesis 15:9 ). Jesus said He would be in the grave for three days and three nights (Matthew 12:40 ), the same time Jonah was in the great fish (Jonah 1:17 ). Paul often used triads in his writings, the most famous being “faith, hope and charity” (1 Corinthians 13:13 ). One must also remember Paul's benediction: “The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the communion of the Holy Ghost be with you all” (2 Corinthians 13:14 ).
Four was often used as a sacred number. Significant biblical references to four include the four corners of the earth (Isaiah 11:12 ), the four winds (Jeremiah 49:36 ), four rivers which flowed out of Eden to water the world (Genesis 2:10-14 ), and four living creatures surrounding God (Ezekiel 1:1 ; Revelation 4:6-7 ). God sent forth the four horsemen of the Apocalypse (Revelation 6:1-8 ) to bring devastation to the earth.
The most significant multiple of four is forty, which often represented a large number or a long period of time. Rain flooded the earth for forty days (Genesis 7:12 ). For forty days Jesus withstood Satan's temptations (Mark 1:13 ). Forty years represented approximately a generation. Thus all the adults who had rebelled against God at Sinai died during the forty years of the Wilderness Wandering period. By age forty, a person had reached maturity (Exodus 2:11 ; Acts 7:23 ).
A special system of numerology known as gematria developed in later Judaism. Gematria is based on the idea that one may discover hidden meaning in the biblical text from a study of the numerical equivalence of the Hebrew letters. The first letter of the Hebrew alphabet, aleph represented one; beth , the second letter represented two, and so on. With gematria one takes the sum of the letters of a Hebrew word and seeks to find some meaning. For example, the Hebrew letters of the name Eliezer, Abraham's servant, have a numerical value of 318. When Gensis Acts 14:14 states that Abraham took 318 trained men to pursue the kings from the east, some Jewish commentaries interpret this to mean that Abraham had but one helper, Eliezer, since Eliezer has the numerical value of 318. Likewise, the number 666 in Revelation is often taken as a reverse gematria for the emperor Nero. The name Nero Caesar, put in Hebrew characters and added up following gematria, total 666. Any interpretation based on gematria must be treated with care; such interpretation always remains speculative.

Wilson's Dictionary of Bible Types - Number (And Forms)
Job 14:16 (c) This seems to indicate that the Lord watches every step that is taken by His child, and knows how many there are, and what is the number of each step that he takes. This indicates the very wonderful care of GOD for His child.
Psalm 90:12 (b) Evidently the Lord wants us to watch the details of our lives, for we only have a certain number of days to live, and we should know how many days are left in the ordinary course of life. If we do so, we will certainly endeavor to make every day count for eternity.
Matthew 10:30 (b) It does not say that GOD has counted our hairs, but rather that He has put a number on each hair. The lesson we learn from this is that each hair has its own number as a proof to us that the GOD of Heaven is interested in every detail of our lives. (See also Luke 12:7).
1910 New Catholic Dictionary - Golden Number
Name applied to each of the 19 numbers representing the cycle of lunar years into which Meton (432 B.C.) divided the calendar subsequent to his discoyery that after 19 solar years had elapsed the new moon would occur on the same days in the years indicated by identical numbers. They are so called because the number for each current year was inscribed in gold on an Athenian temple pillar.
1910 New Catholic Dictionary - Apocalyptic Number
The mystical number, 666, in the Apocalypse. The Greek letters of the word Lateinos (i.e., Pagan Rome) are also numerals which, added together, amount to this number. There are other interpretations, e.g., Antichrist.

Smith's Bible Dictionary - Number
Like most Oriental nations, it is probable that the Hebrews in their written calculations made use of the letters of the alphabet. That they did so in post-Babylonian times we have conclusive evidence in the Maccabaean coins; and it is highly probable that this was the ease also in earlier times. But though, on the one hand, it is certain that in all existing MSS of the Hebrew text of the Old Testament the numerical expressions are written at length, yet, on the other, the variations in the several versions between themselves and from the Hebrew text, added to the evident inconsistencies in numerical statement between certain passages of that text itself seems to prove that some shorter mode of writing was originally in vogue, liable to be misunderstood, and in fact misunderstood by copyists and translators. These variations appear to have proceeded from the alphabetic method of writing numbers. There can be little doubt, however, that some at least of the numbers mentioned in Scripture are intended to be representative rather than determinative. Certain numbers, as 7,10,40,100, were regarded as giving the idea of completeness. Without entering into St. Augustine's theory of this usage, we may remark that the notion of representative numbers in certain cases is one extremely common among eastern nations, who have a prejudice against counting their possessions accurately; that it enters largely into many ancient systems of chronology, and that it is found in the philosophical and metaphysical speculations not only of the Pythagorean and other ancient schools of philosophy, both Greek and Roman, but also in those of the later Jewish writers, of the Gnostics, and also of such Christian writers se St. Augustine himself. We proceed to give some instances of numbers used, (a) representatively, and thus probably by design indefinitely, or, (b) definitely, but, as we may say, preferentially, i.e. because some meaning (which we do not in all cases understand) was attached to them.
Seven as denoting either plurality or completeness, perhaps because seven days completed the week is so frequent as to make a selection only of instances necessary, e.g. seven fold ( Genesis 4:24 ) seven times , i.e. completely, ( Leviticus 26:24 ; Psalm 12:6 ) seven (i.e. many) ways, (28:25)
Ten as a preferential number is exemplified in the Ten Commandments and the law of tithe.
Seventy , as compounded of 7 10:10, appears frequently e.g. seventy fold. ( Genesis 4:24 ; Matthew 18:22 ) Its definite use appears in the offerings of 70 shekels, (Numbers 7:13,19 ) ff,; the 70 elders, ch. (Numbers 11:16 ) 70 Years of captivity. (Jeremiah 25:11 )
Five appears in the table of punishments, of legal requirements, ( Exodus 22:1 ; Leviticus 5:16 ; 22:14 ; 27:15 ; Numbers 5:7 ; 18:16 ) and in the five empires of Daniel. (Daniel 2:1 ) ...
Four is used in reference to the 4 winds, ( Daniel 7:2 ) and the so-called 4 corners of the earth; the creatures, each with 4 wings and 4 faces, of Ezekiel, (Ezekiel 1:5 ) ff.; 4Rivers of Paradise (Genesis 2:10 ) 4Beasts, (Daniel 7:1 ) ... and Reve 4:6 The 4 equal-sided temple-chamber. (Ezekiel 40:47 )
Three was regarded, by both the Jews and other nations as a specially complete and mystic number.
Twelve (3X4) appears in 12 tribes 12 stones in the high priest's breastplate, 12 apostles, 12 foundation-stones, and 12 gates. ( Revelation 21:19-21 )
Lastly, the mystic number 666. (Revelation 13:18 )

The American Church Dictionary and Cycopedia - Golden Number
The Golden Number is that which marks theposition of any given year in the Lunar Cycle, which is a periodof nineteen years. Meton, an Athenian philosopher, discovered that,at the end of every such period, the new moons take place onthe same days of the months whereon they occurred before itscommencement. This discovery was considered to be so important,it became the custom to inscribe the rule for finding the moon'sage on a tablet in golden letters and placed in the market-placeat Athens; hence arose the term Golden Number. The Golden Numbermay be found by adding one to the year of our Lord, and dividingthe sum by 19, when the remainder, if any, is the Golden Number.If there be no remainder, the Golden Number is 19. One is addedto the year of our Lord because the first year of the Christian erawas the second of the Cycle. The time of Easter may be found bymeans of the Golden Number. (See Tables in Prayer Book.)

Mark of the Beast - This mark is equivalent to the beast's name or Number (13:17; Number is announced in 13:18 as 666. ...
The interpretive difficulty in understanding the mark of the beast resides in identifying what response John expected by his challenge in Revelation 13:18 to calculate the Number of the beast. The process of working from a Number to a name was an ancient process called gematria in Hebrew and isopsephia in Greek. The letter and Number ratio was known by all. 79) reads "I love her whose Number Isaiah 545 . ...
The history of interpretation concerning the correlation of a person with the Number 666 has only resulted in endless speculations. A rare rendering of his name into Neron Caesar, transliterated into Hebrew as nrwn qsr, renders the Number 666 (nun/50, resh/200, waw/6, nun/50, qof/100, samech/60, and resh/200 = 666). It is also noteworthy that a variant reading in Greek New Testament manuscripts exits that cites the Number as "616" rather than "666. " The transliteration of the normal Nero Caesar into the Hebrew nrw qsr, renders the Number 616. He proposed a Number of options, including lateinos, meaning a Latin (30 + 1 + 300 + 5 + 10 + 50 + 70 + 200 = 666), and thus a Roman ruler, and teitan, a Roman name with which he was enamored (Contra Haereses 5. A few modern scholars have noted that the Numbers can also argue for a connection with Babylon and Nimrod. The list is expanded with the creative use of Numbers during times of modern crises (e. ...
It is possible that John merely intended the Number to be symbolic of what the beast and his followers represent: humankind in their ultimate rebellion against God, his Lamb, and the followers of the Lamb. John explains in 13:18 that the Number 666 is the Number of man. The Number 7 is well established as a Number of completeness or perfection. The Number 6, being one less than 7, may symbolize humankind, which falls short of perfection. The Number 666 could well personify the imperfection of man, even implying in the triple Number the unholy trinity of the dragon, antichrist, and the false prophet. Meadors...

The Hebrews also used fractions such as a half (Genesis 24:22 ), a third (Numbers 15:6 ), and a fourth (Exodus 29:40 ). ...
In addition to their usage to designate specific Numbers or quantities, many Numbers in the Bible came to have a symbolic meaning. ”...
A similar use of the Number seven can be seen in the New Testament. The seven churches (Revelation 2-3 ) perhaps symbolized by their Number all the churches. Jesus taught that forgiveness is not to be limited, even to a full Number or complete Number of instances. We are to forgive, not merely seven times (already a gracious Number of forgivenesses), but seventy times seven (limitless forgiveness, beyond keeping count) (Matthew 18:21-22 ). ...
After seven, the most significant Number for the Bible is undoubtedly twelve. The Sumerians used twelve as one base for their Number system. Both the calendar and and the signs of the Zodiac reflect this twelve base Number system. The tribes of Israel and Jesus' disciples Numbered twelve. The importance of the Number twelve is evident in the effort to maintain that Number. When Levi ceased to be counted among the tribes, the Joseph tribes, Ephraim and Manasseh, were counted separately to keep the Number twelve intact. Similarly, in the New Testament, when Judas Iscariot committed suicide, the eleven moved quickly to add another to keep their Number at twelve. Seventy-two elders, when one includes Eldad and Medad, were given a portion of God's spirit that rested on Moses, and they prophesied (Numbers 11:24-26 ). ...
Three as a symbolic Number often indicated completeness. ...
Four was often used as a sacred Number. ...
The most significant multiple of four is forty, which often represented a large Number or a long period of time. Likewise, the Number 666 in Revelation is often taken as a reverse gematria for the emperor Nero

Other Numbers were denoted by combinations of letters. This system is still commonly used to Number the chapters and verses in Heb. A similar system was also used by the Greeks, and is occasionally found in the NT; thus the Number of the Beast, 666, in Revelation 13:18 , is written by means of three letters. There is no evidence of proficiency in arithmetic beyond the simplest operations, but we have examples of addition in connexion with the census in the wilderness, the Numbers of the separate tribes being given first and then the total ( Numbers 1:22 ff; Numbers 26:7 ff. Round Numbers . As in other languages, ‘round Numbers,’ exact tens, hundreds, thousands, etc. , must often have been used by the Israelites, on the understanding that they were only approximately accurate; and in the same way smaller Numbers were sometimes used indefinitely for ‘a few’; cf. ’ For Instance, the exact ten thousands of Jehoshaphat’s armies given above are doubtless round Numbers. Again, in Leviticus 26:8 , ‘five of you shall chase a hundred,’ merely means, ‘a handful of you shall put to flight many times your own Number. ’ This indefinite use of a small Number is specially common where two consecutive units are given as alternatives, e. In addition to hundreds and thousands and ten thousands, the most common Number used in this approximate way is ‘forty’: people constantly live or reign for ‘forty years’ or multiples of forty years. It is a matter of opinion how far the numerous ‘sevens,’ ‘tens,’ and ‘twelves’ were originally intended as exact Numbers. Probably, however, in many cases what were originally round Numbers were taken afterwards to be exact. that the various 40’s and 80’s were added in with other Numbers to obtain a continuous chronology. Again, in Numbers 3:39 the census gives 22,000 Levites, which one would naturally understand as a round Number; but in Numbers 3:43-51 it is taken as an exact Number, inasmuch as it is ordained that because the 22,273 firstborn exceed the Levites by 273, redemption-money shall be paid for the surplus. , and denoting bodies of men whose Numbers varied. of Numbers more credible by reducing the total amounts; but it is clear that the narrative as it stands intends ‘thousand’ to be a numeral, and does not use the word for a ‘clan. Accuracy of Numbers . Without attempting an exhaustive consideration of the accuracy of Numbers as given by the original authors, we may point out that we should not expect a large measure of mathematical accuracy even in original Numbers. Often, as we have seen, they are apparently given as round Numbers. Moreover, in the case of large Numbers they would seldom be ascertained by careful enumeration. The Numbers of armies especially hostile armies of slain, and so forth, would usually he given on a rough estimate; and such estimates are seldom accurate, but for the most part exaggerated. If we assume that Numbers were denoted by figures in early times, figures are far more easily altered, omitted, or added than words; but, as we have seen, we have at present no strong ground for such an assumption. But even when words are used, the words denoting Numbers in Hebrew are easily confused with each other, as in English. It was quite possible, too, for a scribe to have views of his own as to what was probable in the way of Numbers, and to correct what he considered erroneous. , in which our books have been preserved, shows that Numbers are specially subject to alteration, and that in very many cases we are quite uncertain as to what Numbers were given in the original text, notably where the Numbers are large. Even where the Number of a body of men, the length of a period, etc. , are given twice over or oftener in different passages of the Bible itself, the Numbers are often different; those in Chronicles, for instance, sometimes differ from those in Samuel and Kings, as in the case of David’s census mentioned above. Now the Numbers connected with the ages of the patriarchs are largely different in these three authorities; e. Again, the Number of persons on board the ship on which St. Paul was shipwrecked is given in some MSS as 276, and in others as 76 ( Acts 27:37 ); and similarly the Number of the Beast is variously given as 666 and as 616 ( Revelation 13:18 ). ...
The probability that many mistakes in Numbers have been introduced into the Bible by copyists in the course of the transmission of the text has long been admitted. … Differences in chronology do not imply that the sacred historians were mistaken, but they arise from the mistakes of transcribers or expositors’; and again, ‘It is reasonable to make abatements, and not always to insist rigorously on precise Numbers, in adjusting the accounts of scriptural chronology’ (i. Favourite Numbers and their symbolism . , also gave a special currency to the Number. It is suggested that the Number 12 for the tribes of Israel was fixed by the Zodiac; in the lists the Number 12 is obtained only by omitting Levi or Dan, or by substituting Joseph for Ephraim and Manasseh. When the Number 12 was established for the tribes, its currency and that of its multiples were thus further extended; e. A specially sacred character is popularly ascribed to the Number seven; and although the Bible does not expressly endorse this idea, yet it is supported by the frequent occurrence of the Number in the ritual, the sacred seventh day, the Sabbath; the sacred seventh year, the Sabbatical year; the Jubilee year, the year following seven times seven years; the seven-branched candlestick; sevenfold sprinkling ( Leviticus 4:6 etc. ); seven lambs offered ( Numbers 28:11 ff. Ezekiel’s ritual has a certain predilection for the Number eight. This Number apparently owes its vogue to the view that 40 was the approximate or perhaps average length of a generation; at least this is a common view. The Number might perhaps be obtained by taking the average of the years of a man’s age at which his children were born, though such an explanation does not appear very probable. At any rate 40 is well established as a moderate round Number between ‘a few’ and ‘a very great many. ...
A certain mystical value is attached to Numbers in later Jewish and Christian philosophy and superstition, perhaps due partly to the ideas suggested by the relations of Numbers to each other, and to the practical power of arithmetic; the symbols which aided men so effectually seemed to have some inherent force of their own. ...
Great importance is attached to Numbers in the mediæval Jewish mystical system, the Kabbala . Gematria , a Hebraized form of the Greek geometria , used to mean ‘reckoning by Numbers,’ was a late development of which there are traces in the OT. It consisted in indicating a word by means of the Number which would be obtained by adding together the numerical values of the consonants of the word. The Number is apparently constructed from the name. ...
The Apocalyptic Number of the Beast is often explained by Gematria, and 666 has been discovered to be the sum of the numerical values of the letters of some form or other of a large Number of names written either in Hebrew, or Greek, or Latin

Alexandrian Library - Beside the books which he procured, his son, Ptolemy Philadelphus, added many more, and left in this library at his death a hundred thousand volumes; and the succeeding princes of this race enlarged it still more, till at length the books lodged in it amounted to the Number of seven hundred thousand volumes. As the museum was at first in the quarter of the city called Bruchion, the library was placed there; but when the Number of books amounted to four hundred thousand volumes, another library, within the Serapeum, was erected by way of supplement to it, and, on that account, called the daughter of the former. The books lodged in this increased to the Number of three hundred thousand volumes; and these two made up the Number of seven hundred thousand volumes, of which the royal libraries of the Ptolemies were said to consist. These, and others added to them from time to time, rendered the new library more numerous and considerable than the former; and though it was plundered more than once during the revolutions which happened in the Roman empire, yet it was as frequently supplied with the same Number of books, and continued, for many ages, to be of great fame and use, till it was burnt by the Saracens, A.

Many - 1: πολύς (Strong's #4183 — Adjective — polus — pol-oos' ) "much, many, great," is used especially of Number when its significance is "many," e. 1, is translated "many" in Acts 2:40 ; 13:31 ; 21:10 ; 24:17 ; 25:14 ; 27:20 ; 28:23 (AV; RV, "in great Number"); with the article, "most," RV (or rather, "the more part"), Acts 19:32 ; 1 Corinthians 10:5 , and Philippians 1:14 (for AV, "many," an important change); in 2 Corinthians 2:6 , RV, "the many" (marg. , "the more part"); in Hebrews 7:23 , RV, "many in Number" (AV, "many"). ...

Census - Μiphqad , "numbering combined with lustration" or "purification. " By the law (Exodus 30:12-13) half a shekel was to be paid by every man above 20 years as a ransom for his soul, that there should be no plague whenever a Numbering of the people took place. The Number at the census in the third or fourth month after the Exodus was 603,550 above 20 years (Exodus 38:26); in Exodus 12:37 the round Number 600,000. There were besides 22,000 male Levites of a month old and upwards (Numbers 3:39). In Numbers 3:43 all the firstborn males for whom the Levites were accepted as a substitute are stated to be 22,273, which, if it were the suni of the firstborn sons in the entire nation, would require there to be 40 males begotten of each father in each family to make up 608,550 men of 20 years and upward, or a population of more than 1,000,000 males. It appears from Numbers 3:13; Numbers 8:17, God had actually sanctified already all the firstborn to Himself by having protected His people from the destroyer on the paschal night (Exodus 12:22-23; Exodus 4:22), and had adopted the whole nation in instituting the Passover. The Number of Levites (Numbers 3:39; Numbers 3:51), Numbers 3:22; Numbers 3:000, does not agree with the Numbers assigned to the three families 7,500 + 8,600 + 6,200 = 22,300. But the total is correct; for it is written, the Number of the firstborn, 22,273, exceeded that of the Levites by 273. ...
Probably there is a copyist's error in the Number of one of the Levitical families, perhaps in Numbers 3:28 read 8,300 for 8,600. The earlier Numbering for collecting atonement money from every male of 20 or upward (Exodus 30:11-16; Exodus 38:25-26) gave the same Number, 603,550, as that nine months later (Numbers 1:1-3-46; Exodus 40:17), in the second month of the second year, four weeks after the rearing of the tabernacle. This latter mustering merely consisted in registering those already Numbered in the public records according to their families and fathers' houses; probably according to Jethro's suggestion of classification for administering justice, namely, in thousands, hundreds, fifties, and tens (Exodus 18:25). The supernumerary units would be used to balance the changes that had taken place in the actual condition of the families and fathers' houses between the earlier provisional Numbering and the subsequent preparation of the master rolls, so that the few changes that had taken place during the nine months' interval among those fit for war was made no account of, but the Number was left the same. A new census was taken 38 years afterwards in the plains of Moab (Numbers 26) for the division of Canaan among the tribes according to their families (Numbers 33:54). The Number then was 601,730, of 20 years and upward, of whom Joshua and Caleb alone were in the former census, the whole generation having died in the wilderness. The tribe of Simeon especially suffered a diminution of its Numbers; probably owing to the plague which followed Zimri's sin with Cozbi the Midianite woman (Numbers 25:9-15; Numbers 26:51; Numbers 26:63-65; compare Numbers 11:21). The total of Israel, including the 23,000 Levite males from a month old upwards, would be thus about 2,000,000 (Numbers 26:62). The objection of rationalists that the peninsula of Sinai could not have sustained such a Number is answered by the consideration (1) that Israel was sustained by a miracle, (2) the peninsula yielded much more anciently than at present. ...
The next Numbering was that by David, contrary to Joab's advice (2 Samuel 24:1-9; 1 Chronicles 21:1; 1 Chronicles 21:5; 1 Chronicles 27:24). "Satan stood up against Israel and provoked David to Number Israel. When David, after the plague sent for Numbering the people, sacrificed upon an altar of burnt offering on the threshing floor of Araunah on mount Moriah, Jehovah by fire from heaven consecrated the place as "the house of God," even before the actual building of the temple (compare 1 Chronicles 22:1-2 with Genesis 28:17-19). The Number in 1 Chronicles 21:5 is 1,100,000 of Israel and 470,000 of Judah. ...
The Number was never put "in the account of the chronicles of King David" (1 Chronicles 27:24). Benjamin, which came last in order on the return home to Jerusalem, had not been Numbered when the census was interrupted (1 Chronicles 21:6). The 30,000 difference in the Number of Judah, as given in Chronicles and according to Samuel, was perhaps due to Benjamin being given in Samuel but not in Chronicles. ...
These were in actual service; the larger Numbers in the census are those capable of service. At best, oral tradition was the basis of the Numbers here, seeing that it was not recorded in the chronicles of David. The whole population would thus amount to about 5,000,000; a Number not too large for the well attested fertility of the land then to sustain. 66, just before the Roman siege of Jerusalem, a census taken by the priests at the Passover gave the approximate Number 2,700,000, independently of foreigners and those ceremonially defiled. Solomon completed David's census by causing the resident foreigners to be Numbered and employed on his great works, namely, 153,600 (2 Chronicles 2:17-18; compare Joshua 9:27). ) Numbered 1496, exclusive of women and children (Ezra 8:1-14). ...

Episcopacy - The Number of Christians in most of the primitive churches was at first small: they could easily, when not prevented by persecution, assemble together; and they thus formed one church or congregation; for, in Scripture, the term church is never used in the more modern acceptation of the word, but is employed to denote either the whole church of Christ, or a Number of disciples meeting for the celebration of divine worship. The pastors would thus remain members of the presbytery, as they had formerly been, and would look up to that one of their Number who had been accustomed to preside among them. The ministers who were sent to the recently erected churches had probably different powers, according to the Numbers to whom they were to officiate, the situation of the churches in respect of the original church, and the tranquillity or persecution which was their lot. In the immediate neighbourhood of the bishop, and where one person was sufficient, he would merely perform the duties that had been assigned to him previous to his mission; but the same reasons that led the Apostles to plant several presbyters in the churches which they founded might render it expedient that more than one, sometimes that a considerable Number, should be attached to the newly-formed congregations; more particularly when the Number attending was large, and when there was the prospect of their still farther increasing. After the bishops were established as superior to presbyters, when any meeting was held respecting religion, or the administration of the church, it was chiefly composed of this higher order, and the president of the synod or council was elected from their Number

No addition to the Number thus employed pears to have been mad ring the period of the judges, and they continued to be known by their own name as the Gibeonites.

There can be little doubt, however, that some at least of the Numbers mentioned in Scripture are intended to be representative rather than determinative. Certain Numbers, as 7,10,40,100, were regarded as giving the idea of completeness. Augustine's theory of this usage, we may remark that the notion of representative Numbers in certain cases is one extremely common among eastern nations, who have a prejudice against counting their possessions accurately; that it enters largely into many ancient systems of chronology, and that it is found in the philosophical and metaphysical speculations not only of the Pythagorean and other ancient schools of philosophy, both Greek and Roman, but also in those of the later Jewish writers, of the Gnostics, and also of such Christian writers se St. We proceed to give some instances of Numbers used, (a) representatively, and thus probably by design indefinitely, or, (b) definitely, but, as we may say, preferentially, i. many) ways, (28:25) ...

Numbers 1:46 gives the Number more exactly as 603,550 from twenty years old and upwards that were able to go to war. Is this a greater Number than could be the descendants of those who entered Egypt?

The rabbins pretend, that the sanhedrim has always subsisted in their nation from the time of Moses to the destruction of the temple by the Romans; and they maintain that it consisted of seventy counsellors, six out of each tribe, and Moses as president; and thus the Number was seventy-one: but six senators out of each tribe make the Number seventy-two, which, with the president, constitute a council of seventy-three persons, and therefore it has been the opinion of some authors that this was the Number of the members of the sanhedrim. As to the personal qualifications of the judges of this court, it was required that they should be of untainted birth; and they were often of the race of the priests or Levites, or of the Number of inferior judges, or of the lesser sanhedrim, which consisted of twenty-three judges.

The Gershonites, whose Number was seven thousand five hundred, were employed in the marches through the wilderness in carrying the veils and curtains of the tabernacle; the Kohathites, whose Number was eight thousand six hundred, in carrying the ark and sacred vessels of the tabernacle; the Merarites, whose Number was six thousand two hundred, in carrying the several pieces of the tabernacle which could not be placed upon the chariots; and the Aaronites were the priests who served the sanctuary. Moses ordained that the Levites should not begin in the service of the tabernacle till they were five-and-twenty years of age, Numbers 8:24-26 ; or, as he says elsewhere, from thirty to fifty years old, Numbers 4:3
Genealogy - Israel's census was taken early in the wilderness 40 years sojourn, the second month of the second year, "by their generations, after their families, by the house of their fathers" (Numbers 1:2; Ruth 4:18-2275 etc. , Numbers 2-3). Again, 38 years later, in the plains of Moab, the names of the families being added (Numbers 26). So Manasseh and Ephraim were Numbered among Jacob's "sons," though only grandsons (Genesis 48:5). Bela (whose two sons Naaman and Ard are called "sons of Benjamin," Numbers 26:40-41) and Benjamin respecting Genesis 46; Numbers 26; Exodus 6:24 enumerates Assir's son and grandson as heads, with their father, of the Korhites. By comprising Jacob himself with all the founders of tribes and families, the significant Number 70 results; seven (expressing God's covenant relation to Israel, made up of three the divine Number and four the worldwide extension Number) multiplied by ten the seal of completeness; implying that these 70 comprised the whole nation of God (Exodus 1:5; Deuteronomy 10:22). But the Kohathites (Numbers 3:27) in Moses' time were divided into four families, Amramites, Jehezarites, Hebronites, and Ussielites, 8,600 men and boys independent of women; the fourth would be Amramites. ...
Now Moses had only two sons; therefore if Amram his father were the Amram Kohath's father, Moses must have had 2,147 brothers and brothers' sons, which is impossible; therefore between the two Amrams a Number of generations must have dropped out. Thus, the genealogy of 1618384533_7 makes but four intervening links between Nahshon at the Exodus (Numbers 1:7) and David, namely, Salmon, Boaz, Obed, Jesse; whereas the genealogy of Levi has double that Number in the same period, seven between Phinehas and Zadok, and more in Gershon's line (1 Chronicles 6). Genealogies are clear measures of time only when complete; and the marks of completeness are, when the mother as well as the father is named, or when historical facts define the relationship, or when a genealogy is confirmed by one or more besides, giving the same Number of generations within the same bounds

Numbers as Symbols - The signification of some Numbers is too obvious to be mistaken; that of others is less apparent. In some cases the symbolical Number may be discovered where the numeral itself is not mentioned: as, for instance, under three we may class the law, the psalms, and the prophets; spirit, soul, and body, etc. A few references only are given here for each Number. Numbers 14:6-9 . Numbers 10:14-25 . Numbers 7:17-83 . Incompleteness, imperfection (one short of the perfect Number seven).

Mendicants - This sort of society began in the thirteenth century, and the members of it, by the tenor of their institution, were to remain entirely destitute of all fixed revenues and possessions; though in process of time their Number became a heavy tax upon the people. But when it became generally known that they had such a peculiar place in the esteem and protection of the rulers of the church, their Number grew to such an enormous and unwieldy multitude, and swarmed so prodigiously in all the European provinces, that they became a burden, not only to the people, but to the church itself. were suppressed; and the extravagant multitude of Mendicants, as Gregory called them, were reduced to a smaller Number, and confined to the four following societies or denominations, viz. They retained their credit and influence to such a degree towards the close of the fourteenth century, that great Numbers of both sexes, some in health, others in a state of infirmity, others at the point of death, earnestly desired to be admitted into the Mendicant order, which they looked upon as a sure and infallible method of rendering heaven propitious.

Council - Moses' tribunal of seventy seems to have been temporary (Numbers 11:16-17), for there are no traces of it in Deuteronomy 17:8-10, nor under Joshua, judges, and the kings. The Number was probably derived from Moses' council. Seventy-one is the Number, according to Jewish tradition, to correspond to the 70 and Moses (Numbers 11:16). Others say 72, since to the 70, Eldad and Medad are to be added (Numbers 11:26)

Mischna - Prideaux, rejecting the Jewish fiction, observes, that after the death of Simon the Just, about 299 years before Christ, the Mischnical doctors arose, who by their comments and conclusions added to the Number of those traditions which had been received and allowed by Ezra and the men of the great synagogue; so that towards the middle of the second century after Christ, under the empire of Antoninus Pius, it was found necessary to commit these traditions to writing; more especially as their country had considerably suffered under Adria, and many of their schools had been dissolved, and their learned men cut off; and therefore the usual method of preserving their traditions had failed. Rabbi Judah on this occasion being rector of the school of Tiberias, and president of the sanhedrim in that place, undertook the work, and compiled it in six books, each consisting of several tracts, which altogether make up the Number of sixty-three

Month - (Numbers 10:10 ; 28:11-14 ) The commencement of the month was generally decided by observation of the new moon. The usual Number of months in a year was twelve, as implied in (1 Kings 4:7 ; 1 Chronicles 27:1-15 ) but since twelve lunar months would make but 354 1/2 days, the years would be short twelve days of the short twelve days of the true year, and therefore it follows as a matter of course that an additional month must have been inserted about every third year, which would bring the Number up to thirteen
Tribes - (φυλή)...
From the earliest times the nation of Israel was divided into various tribes, the Number invariably being given as twelve. In the lists of the tribes, as we find them in the OT, considerable variations are to be found, and frequently the tribes descended from Joseph (Ephraim and Manasseh) have to be regarded as one in order to make the Number twelve. Are the ‘servants of God’ of Revelation 7:3 identical with the ‘multitude’ of Revelation 7:9 ‘whom no man can Number’? Can this be the case when the sealed are Numbered so definitely? If not, who then are the sealed? Are they faithful Jews of the OT dispensation, or are they Jewish Christians, and are the Gentile Christians not to be sealed? The first suggestion is impossible, as the sealed are evidently still on the earth. Probably, in spite of all difficulties, the same persons are indicated in both passages, and neither the Numbering of the sealed nor the reference to the various tribes of Israel is to be taken literally. The OT imagery of the sealing is used to express the thought that God’s faithful people are Numbered and protected on earth to the last individual, while the subsequent vision (Revelation 7:9-17) points to their glory in heaven

Generation - Elsewhere toledoth appears in genealogical lists such as Exodus 6:1 , Numbers 1 , 1 Chronicles 1-9 . A generation did not necessarily have a specific Number of years. Numbers 32:11-13 may reckon a generation as 60 years, it including people twenty and above and giving them forty more years to die. This is reducing a generation to a quite small Number. Basically, generation is not a specific Number of years but a more or less specific period of time. Similarly, “to your (his, their) generations” means forever (Numbers 10:8 )

Refuge, Cities of - ...
(3) In post-exilic times the cities of refuge established under the Deuteronomic Code remained, and the judicial procedure followed was very much the same, only the community presumably at Jerusalem and not the elders of the city of refuge (Numbers 35:12 ; Numbers 35:24-25 ) was to determine the guilt or the innocence of the fugitive. The law was mitigated so far that the unwitting manslayer was no longer doomed to spend all his days there but was free to return to his home on the death of the high priest of the time ( Numbers 35:25 ; Numbers 35:23 , Joshua 20:6 ). Number of cities of refuge .

But when in post-exilic times the Jews covered a wider area, there would naturally be need for more cities; and so we find the Number in Numbers and Joshua stated at six, and additions made to the text in Deuteronomy 4:41-43 ; Deuteronomy 19:3 to suggest that the Number six had been contemplated from the beginning

Calling - The calling of guests to the evangelical feast, we then more fully learn, was not the mere calling of men to partake of spiritual benefits; but calling them also to form a spiritual society composed of Jews and Gentiles, the believing men of all nations; to have a common fellowship in these blessings, and to be formed into this fellowship for the purpose of increasing their Number, and diffusing the benefits of salvation among the people or nation to which they respectively belonged. In none of these passages is the doctrine of the exclusive calling of a set Number of men contained; and the synod of Dort, as though they felt this, only attempt to infer the doctrine from a text already quoted; but which we will now more fully notice: "Whom he did predestinate, them he also called; and whom he called, them he also justified; and whom he justified, them he also glorified," Romans 8:30 . This is the text on which the Calvinists chiefly rest their doctrine of effectual calling; and tracing it, as they say, through its steps and links, they conclude, that a set and determinate Number of persons having been predestinated unto salvation, this set Number only are called effectually, then justified, and finally glorified. But this passage was evidently nothing to the purpose, unless it had spoken of a set and determinate Number of men as predestinated and called, independent of any consideration of their faith and obedience; which Number as being determinate, would, by consequence, exclude the rest

Lastly, we desire to know, how is it possible to conceive a God, who, being in the actual enjoyment of perfect happiness, incomprehensible, and supreme, could determine to add this decree, though useless, to his felicity, to create men without Number for the purpose of confining them for ever in the chains of darkness, and burning them for ever in unquenchable flames

Every male Jew residing within fifteen miles of Jerusalem, and not ceremonially unclean, was required to do so, and in addition, numerous visitors from other parts of the Holy Land, and from other countries near and far, travelling with their gifts, and with song, swelled the Number of residents. 3) he relates that, at the request of Cestius, the priests counted the Number of lambs slain as 256,500. Remarking that the minimum Number permitted for a lamb was ten persons, Josephus calculates the Number at 2,700,000. An ancient Jewish tradition gives the Number of Passover lambs on one occasion as 1,200,000. There remained another cup to be drunk, for the Number four was insisted upon, and became the subject of various interpretations; the second part of the Hallel (Psalms 115-118) was sung—probably the ‘hymn’ after which ‘they went out unto the mount of Olives’ (Mark 14:26)—and the feast ended with a benediction, ‘the blessing of the song. ’...

Midian - It was at this time that the Midianites, alarmed at the Numbers and the progress of the Israelites, united with the Moabites in sending into Syria for Balaam, the soothsayer; thinking to do that by incantation which they despaired of effecting by force. The result of this measure, the constraint imposed on Balaam to bless instead of to curse, and the subsequent defeat and slaughter of the Midianites, forms one of the most interesting narratives in the early history of the Jews, Numbers 22-25, 31. About two hundred years after this, the Midianites, having recovered their Numbers and their strength, were permitted by God to distress the Israelites for the space of seven years, as a punishment for their relapse into idolatry.

Book - There also occur certain formulae at the beginning and end of books; as among the Jews, the word חזק , esto fortis, which we find at the end of the books of Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers, Ezekiel, &c, to exhort the reader to be courageous, and proceed on to the following book. ]'>[1] At the end of each book the Jews also added the Number of verses contained in it, and at the end of the Pentateuch the Number of sections; that it might be transmitted to posterity entire. The Masorites and Mohammedan doctors have gone farther; so as to Number the several words and letters in each book, chapter, verse, &c, of the Old Testament and the Alcoran. " As this want of materials for writing will serve to account for the loss of many of the works of the ancients, and for the small Number of MSS. But when, in the eleventh century, the art of making paper was invented, and more especially after the manufacture became general, the Number of MSS. If the ancient books were large, they were formed of a Number of skins, of a Number of pieces of linen and cotton cloth, or of papyrus, or parchment, connected together.

Thus, when it is said that any one is written in the book of life, it means that he particularly belongs to God, and is enrolled among the Number of his friends and servants: and to be "blotted out of the book of life," is to be erased from the list of God's friends and servants, as those who are guilty of treachery are struck off the roll of officers belonging to a prince
Jesuits - He next went to Paris, where he collected a small Number of associates; and, prompted by his fanatical spirit, or the love of distinction, began to conceive the establishment of a new religious order. The reigning pontiff, though naturally cautious, and though scarcely capable, without the spirit of prophecy, of foreseeing all the advantages to be derived from the services of this nascent order, yet clearly perceiving the benefit of multiplying the Number of his devoted servants, instantly confirmed by his bull the institution of the Jesuits, granted the most ample privileges to the members of the society, and appointed Loyola to be the first general of the order. They were not required to spend their time in the long ceremonial offices and Numberless mummeries of the Romish worship. One of them in India produced a pedigree to prove his own descent from Brama; and another in America assured a native chief that Christ had been a valiant and victorious warrior, who, in the space of three years, had scalped an incredible Number of men, women, and children. The governors of the society pursuing one uniform system with unwearied perseverance, became entirely successful; and, in the space of half a century, had in a wonderful degree extended the reputation, the Number, and influence of the order. When Loyola, in 1540, petitioned the pope to authorize the institution of the Jesuits, he had only ten disciples; but in 1608 the Number amounted to 10,581. Even Henry, either dreading their power, or pleased with the exculpation of his licentious habits, which he found in their flexible system of morality, became their patron, and selected one of their Number as his confessor.

That it failed not to produce effect upon the richly endowed and poetic mind of Balaam, appears from Numbers 24:2 ; "And Balaam lifted up his eyes and he saw Israel abiding in his tents according to their tribes; and the Spirit of God came upon him, and he took up his parable and said, How goodly are thy tents, O Jacob, and thy tabernacles, O Israel!

Polygamy - The circumstances of the patriarchs living in polygamy, and their not being reproved for it, has given occasion for some modern writers to suppose that it is not unlawful: but it is answered that the equality in the Number of males and females born into the world intimates the intention of God that one woman should be assigned to one man; "for (says Dr. The Number of male infants exceeds that of females in the proportion of 19 to 18, or thereabouts; but this excess provides for the greater consumption of males by war, seafaring, and other dangerous or unhealthy occupations. In the article of population, which it has been thought to promote, the community gain nothing (nothing, I mean, compared with a state in which marriage is nearly universal;) for the question is not, whether one man will have more children by five or more wives than by one; but whether these five wives would not bear the same or a greater Number of children to five separate husbands
Ark - Hales proves the ark to have been of the burden of forty-two thousand four hundred and thirteen tons; and asks, "Can we doubt of its being sufficient to contain eight persons, and about two hundred or two hundred and fifty pair of four-footed animals, (a Number to which, according to M. But of such marches no intimation is given in the history; and this seems to render it probable that the animals which Noah was "to bring with him" into the ark, were the animals clean and unclean of the country in which he dwelt, and which, from the capacity of the ark, must have been in great variety and Number. The Number of such extinct species probably has been greatly overrated by Cuvier; but of the fact, to a considerable extent, there can be no doubt
Papyri And Ostraca - Rubbish mounds such as that which we just now assumed hypothetically to be discoverable in our own country, but which in reality, owing to the dampness of our climate, probably do not exist anywhere in the West, occur in large Numbers in Egypt. In the year 1778 a European noticed a Number of papyrus documents in the hands of some of these peasants; he bought one, and watched them burn some fifty others in order that they might enjoy the aromatic smoke. Though a good Number of other papyri reached the European museums in the course of the 19th cent. ...
Literary texts have come to light in large Numbers, though generally only in fragments. They comprise not only very ancient MSS of well-known authors, but also a large Number of lost authors; and lost writings by known authors have been partially recovered. Quite a Number of the papyri throw fresh light on early Christianity as a whole. Fragments of the Fathers, Apocryphal and Gnostic writings, liturgical texts, homiletic fragments, remains of early Christian poetry, have been recovered in large Numbers, both in Greek and Coptic. But to these must be added the large Number of non-literary documents, both Jewish and Early Christian, which are to be reckoned among the oldest relics of our religion. The existence of Semiticisms in the Greek Bible is of course not denied by recent Biblical investigators in the books translated from Semitic originals they are really numerous but the Number of Semiticisms has been considerably reduced, and in proportion as the Semitic character of the NT recedes, its popular character is made to advance. A Number of littérateurs suffered themselves to be bound by the rules of the Atticists, as if they had been living in the 5th cent. ...
In conclusion, reference may be made once more to the fact that recently, in addition to the papyri, a great Number of similar ancient texts, written on fragments of pottery, have been discovered in Egypt, viz. The ostraca, which are also Numbered by thousands, are on the whole even more ‘vulgar’ than the papyri, but for that very reason valuable to us in all the respects already specified with regard to the papyri
Beatitude - Their Number in Matthew. Adeney directs attention to the presence in the Acts of Paul and Thekla of a Number of fresh Beatitudes. Their Number in Matthew. In regard to the Number of Beatitudes in Matthew there have been diverse opinions; the decision depends upon the view taken of Luke 6:10-12—...
Luke 6:10. ...
If Matthew 5:10-12 is not counted as a Beatitude, the Number of perfection—seven—is obtained. ) prefers the mystical significance of eight to similar interpretations of seven; for if seven is the Number of rest after labour, ‘eight is the Number of blessedness and glory after rest’; he also dwells on the annexing of the promise of the Kingdom of heaven to the eighth Beatitude as well as to the first: ‘This is the consummation of blessedness; the recurring note of the beatific octave; also in the eighth Beatitude the word “blessed” is repeated for the sake of greater certainty and emphasis. To obtain the Number ten he not only counts Matthew 5:10-11 as the eighth and ninth Beatitudes respectively, but also treats Matthew 5:12 as the tenth Beatitude. The theory that Luke gives the more primitive form involves the assumption that Matthew omitted the Woes and inserted an equal Number of Blessings
Name - ]'>[19] The great majority of Mesopotamian names contain the name of a god, the greater Number containing two, some three, such elements, as Sin-kalama-idi, meaning ‘Sin knows everything. ]'>[29] A great Number of personal names in the OT are compounded of Jahweh, El, or Baal. ]'>[38] and the custom is clearly alluded to in the Apocalypse in the marking of the adherents of the Beast with his name or the Number of his name, Numbers, the Book of - The book takes its name from the Numberings (Numbers 1 and Numbers 26). The parts are four:...
(1) Preparations for breaking up the camp at Sinai to march to Canaan (Numbers 1 - 10:10). ...
(2) March from Sinai to Canaan's border; repulse by the Amorites (Numbers 10:11-14:45). ...
(3) Selected incidents and enactments during the 38 years' penal wandering (Numbers 15:1-19:22). ...
(4) Last year in the desert, the 40th year after the Exodus (Numbers 20:1-36;Numbers 20:13). ...
Israel's first encampment near Kadesh was at Rithmah (from retem , the "broom") in midsummer, in the second year after the Exodus; there for 40 days they awaited the spies' report (Numbers 13:20; Numbers 13:25-26; Numbers 33:18-19, from verses 20 to 36 are the stages of penal wandering). The tabernacle and Moses remained at Kadesh on the first occasion, while Israel attempted to occupy Canaan too late (Numbers 10:35-3661). The 17 stations belong to that dreary period (Numbers 33:19-36). At the second encampment at Kadesh they stayed three or four months (Numbers 20:1 with Numbers 1:22-28; Numbers 9:6-143). ...
The people mustering all together exhausted the natural water supply; the smiting of the rock, and the sentence on Moses and Aaron followed (Numbers 20:2 ff; Numbers 20:12; Numbers 20:13); from Kadesh Israel sent the message to Edom (Numbers 20:14, etc. On the messengers' return Israel left Kadesh for Mount Hor, where Aaron dies; then proceeded by the marches in Numbers 33:41-49 round Edom to Moab. The camp and tabernacle, with the priests and chiefs, during the wanderings, were the nucleus and rallying point; and the encampments named in Numbers 33:18-36 are those at which the tabernacle was pitched. Kehelathah ("assembling": Numbers 33:22) and Makheloth ("assemblies") were probably stages at which special gatherings took place. Fish at Ezion Geber (Numbers 33:35) was obtainable. The excessive hardships detailed Deuteronomy 1:19; Deuteronomy 8:15, belong to the closing marches of the 40th year through the Arabah, not to the whole period (Numbers 21:4). Numbers begins with the first day of the second month of the second year after they left Egypt (Numbers 1:1). Aaron's death occurred in the first day of the fifth month of the 40th year (Numbers 33:38), the first encampment in the final march to Canaan (Numbers 20:22). Between these two points intervene 38 years and three months of wandering (Deuteronomy 2:14; Numbers 14:27-35). Thus six months intervene between Aaron's death and Deuteronomy; in them the events of the fourth part of the Book of Numbers (Numbers 20:1 to the end) occurred, excepting Arad's defeat. The first month mourning for Aaron occupies, Numbers 20:29; part of the host in this month avenged Arad's attack during Israel's journey from Kadesh to Mount Hor. to Mount Hor (Numbers 20:23; Numbers 20:25). He feared their invasion would be "by way of the spies," namely, from the same quarter as before (Numbers 14:40-45; Numbers 21:1), so he took the offensive. The war with Arad precedes in time Numbers 20, Aaron's burial at Mount Hor, and is the first of the series of victories under Moses narrated from this point. ) Next, from Mount Hor Israel compassed Edom by way of the Red Sea (Numbers 21:4), a 220-mile journey, about four weeks, to the brook Zered (Numbers 21:12), the first westward flowing brook they met, marking therefore an epoch in their march. ...
Their defeat caused Balak to summon Balaam to curse Israel from "Pethor, which was on the river (Euphrates) in his native land" (so, Numbers 22:5), at least 350 miles distant. Two months suffice for his ambassadors to go and return twice, and for Balaam's prophesying (Numbers 22-24). Six weeks thus remain for Midian's seduction of Israel, the plague (Numbers 25), the second Numbering on the plains of Moab (Numbers 26), and the attack on Midian (Numbers 31), God retributively scourging the tempters by their own victims: "beside those (kings) that fell in the battle they put to death the kings of Midian (five, namely) Evi, Rekem, Zur, Hur, and Reba" (Numbers 31:8), "Balaam also they slew" judicially, not in battle. So Moses' death is foreannounced as to follow the vengeance upon Midian (Numbers 31:2). The catalog of stages from Egypt to Moab (Numbers 33:2) is expressly attributed to Moses. Leviticus completed the Sinai legislation, but the stay in tents in the wilderness required supplementary directions not originally provided, as Numbers 19:14, also Numbers 5; 1618384533_50; Numbers 19 (Numbers 19:11 the plague after Korah's rebellion necessitating ordinances concerning defilement by contact with the dead), Numbers 30; Numbers 36, the law of heiresses marrying in their tribe, being at the suit of the Machirite chiefs, as the law of their inheriting was issued on the suit of Zelophehad's daughters (Numbers 27), and that was due to Jehovah's command to divide the land according to the Number of names, by lot (Numbers 26:52-56). So the ordinances Numbers 15:4, etc. , Numbers 15:22; Numbers 15:24; Numbers 15:32. ...
The author's intimate knowledge of Egypt appears in the trial of jealousy (Numbers 5:11), the purifications of the priests (Numbers 8:7, etc. ), the ashes of the red heifer (Numbers 19); all having an affinity to, though certainly not borrowed from, Egyptian rites. So the people refer to their former Egyptian foods (Numbers 11:5-6). frontier town of Egypt (Numbers 13:22). References to the Exodus from Egypt (Numbers 3:13; Numbers 14:19; Numbers 15:41). The regulations for encamping and marching (Numbers 2; Numbers 9:16; etc. , Numbers 10:1-28), and Moses' invocation (1618384533_4). ...
The directions for removing the tabernacle (Numbers 3 and Numbers 4). The very inconsistency seeming between Numbers 4:3; Numbers 4:23; Numbers 4:30, fixing the Levites' limit of age to 30, and Numbers 8:24 appointing the age 25 (the reason being, the 30 was temporary, the Number of able-bodied Levites between 30 and 50 sufficing for the conveyance of the tabernacle in the wilderness; but, when Israel was in Canaan, the larger Number afforded by the earlier limit 25 to 50 was required: David enlarged the Number, as the needs of the sanctuary service required, by reducing the age for entrance to 20 (1 Chronicles 23:24-28), younger men being able then for the work, carrying the tabernacle being no longer needed). The tabernacle is presupposed near, which is true only while Israel was in the wilderness; "Arnon is the border of Moab, between Moab and the Amorites" (Numbers 20:10-12), could only be written in Moses' time; the Amorites were not yet supplanted by the two and a half tribes: Numbers 32. ...
Gad held Dibon when Numbers 32:34 was written, but subsequently Joshua (Joshua 13:9-15; Joshua 13:17) assigned it to Reuben. In Numbers 34 more territory is assigned to Israel than they permanently occupied, and less than they for a time held (namely, Damascus, in the reigns of David, Solomon, and Jeroboam II). Hardly anyone but Moses could have written the pleadings and God's communications in Numbers 14:11-16, presuming they are historical, and they are inseparably connected with the history and legislation. ...
He used also existing materials, as in Numbers 21:14; Numbers 21:17; Numbers 21:27-30, "the book of the wars of the Lord" (the writers piously and truly call them "Jehovah's wars," not Israel's; compare Exodus 17:14; Exodus 17:16), a collection of sacred odes commemorating Israel's triumphs, from Egyptian days downward, including the passage of Arnon, the Song of the Well, the Conquest of Sihon, and the story and prophecies of Balaam, perhaps found in writing among the spoils of Midian when Balaam was slain (Numbers 31:8). In Numbers 21:14 read as margin "Vaheeb in Suphah," i. In Numbers 12:3 "Moses was very meek above all the men upon the face of the earth," he writes not by his own but the Spirit's prompting (Numbers 11:17). ...
He records his own faults as candidly, simply, and self ignoringly (Numbers 21:13; Exodus 4:24; Deuteronomy 1:37; compare the Antitype, Matthew 11:29). Traces of independent accounts interwoven together (Numbers 13:30, etc. , Numbers 14:11-25; Numbers 14:38-39), repetitions, and lack of consecutiveness, are observed. were in the wilderness" (Numbers 15:32) do not prove they were no longer there, but that the sabbath ordinance (Exodus 31:14) now violated was in force already, whereas other ordinances were to come in force only "when Israel should come into the land" (Numbers 15:2, etc. , Numbers 15:18, etc. ...
"Prophet" applied to Moses (Numbers 11:29; Numbers 12:6) was a usual term then (Genesis 20:7; Exodus 7:1), but fell into disuse in the time of the judges when there were strictly no "prophets," directly inspired (1 Samuel 3:1); hence, "seer" was the term for those consulted in difficult eases (1 Samuel 9:9). The organic connection of Numbers with the Pentateuch, of which it forms part, involves the Mosaic authorship of the former if Moses was author of the rest of the Pentateuch. The followers of Israel were Numbered with the holy seed, those born in the house or bought of a stranger (Genesis 17:12-13). A mixed multitude went with them at the Exodus (Exodus 12:38; Numbers 11:4). The main decrease was in Simeon, owing to their prominence in the idolatry and owing to the plague consequently falling heaviest on them (Numbers 25:6; Numbers 25:14). An objection is started because of the disproportion between 22,273, the firstborn, and 603,550 men of war (Numbers 3:43; Numbers 1:46). ...
But the firstborn meant are those born at and after the Passover on the eve of the Exodus (Numbers 13:2; Numbers 13:11-12), which was the ground of God's claim on them; the 603,550 include none of them, the 273 above the Levites' 22,000 had to be redeemed at five shekels each. In Numbers 9:1 the regular Passover in the first month, fourteenth day, is mentioned (Numbers 1:1); but Numbers 9:11 the supplementary Passover on the fourteenth day of the second month. The lambs were slain, as at the first institution, in groups of families in private, not at the sanctuary door as subsequently in Canaan (Numbers 9:3; Numbers 9:12; Deuteronomy 16). Considering how many would not be clean, the Number of communicants was probably 700,000; 50,000 lambs would suffice, allowing 14 persons for each lamb (Exodus 12:4)
Passion Week - The question is, then, whether the Passover day, the 14th Nisan, on which the Passover was eaten, is or is not included in the Number ‘six. to Number the days in proper order, as may be seen in its striking succession of morning and evening, thus:...
Mark 11:11 Evening of 1st day (the Triumphal Entry): καὶ πιριβλεψάμενος πάντα, ὀψὲ ἤδη οὔσης τῆς ὤρας, ἐξῆλθενν εἰς Βηθανίαν. : the writer’s own words in Luke 20:1 ἐν μιᾷ τῶν ἡμερῶν clearly imply that he had no distinct idea of the Number of days between the Triumphal Entry and the Passover (cf. , that the later writers did not trouble about such matters of detail, is most unsatisfactory, as all investigation of the growth and progress of the Evangelical record goes to show a constantly increasing interest in such minutiae as time and hour, place and Number, name and personality; witness, e. , that the writer of Mark 11:11 was anxious to intercalate one day more than the facts naturally allowed; that is to say, he figured to himself a delinite Number of days, and must distribute them somehow in the material before him

Lamentations, Book of - The first, second, and fourth have each twenty-two verses, the Number of the letters in the Hebrew alphabet
Ephraim, the Tribe of - Thus there were in reality thirteen tribes; but the Number twelve was preserved by excluding that of Levi when Ephraim and Manasseh are mentioned separately (Numbers 1:32-34 ; Joshua 17:14,17 ; 1 Chronicles 7:20 ). At the time of the first census in the wilderness this tribe Numbered 40,500 (Numbers 1:32,33 ); forty years later, when about to take possession of the Promised Land, it Numbered only 32,500. During the march (see Numbers 2:18-24 )
Nethinim - So the Levites were "given" (nethunim ) unto Jehovah instead of the firstborn, and by Jehovah "given" to Aaron (see Numbers 3:9; Numbers 8:16-19). To the Levites 320 of the Midianite captives were given, and 32 to the priests ( Numbers 31:40; Numbers 31:42; Numbers 31:47). "...
The Nethinim were their successors; a larger Number of servants of the sanctuary being needed when David was reorganizing the worship, he and the princes "appointed" (Hebrew, "gave") Nethinim for the service of the Levites (Ezra 8:20), probably from the prisoners taken in war, upon their embracing the worship of Jehovah

Sanhedrin - Whilst some Jewish Doctors would trace back the Sanhedrin to the council of 70 elders instituted by Moses (Numbers 11), the earliest undisputed mention which we possess touching the council of elders of Jerusalem dates from the time of Antiochus the Great (223-187 B. Prior to the reduction of Judea to the status of a Roman province, criminal law was administered by the Sanhedrin and by a Number of lesser courts in various towns, the Sanhedrin acting as a court of appeals and having also the function of a trial court in certain cases

Travail - 2, is used negatively in Galatians 4:27 , "(thou) that travailest (not)," quoted from Isaiah 54:1 ; the Apostle applies the circumstances of Sarah and Hagar (which doubtless Isaiah was recalling) to show that, whereas the promise by grace had temporarily been replaced by the works of the Law (see Galatians 3:17 ), this was now reversed, and, in the fulfillment of the promise to Abraham, the Number of those saved by the Gospel would far exceed those who owned allegiance to the Law

Glory - The glory of human beings is spoken of in reference to a Number of external manifestations and conditions, aspects of internal character, and the inherent condition of human nature. ...
Joseph's glory (Genesis 45:13 ) is his position in Egypt, David's (Psalm 21:5 ) and Jehoiakim's (Jeremiah 22:18 ) their royal position in Judah, and Joshua's (Numbers 27:20 ) his position of authority over the people of God. God's glory is something that appears (Exodus 16:10 ), is revealed (Isaiah 40:5 ), or can be seen (Numbers 14:22 ). Thus, God's glory is seen in the plagues and other miracles (Numbers 14:22 ), in the cloudy pillar (Exodus 16:10 ), in the theophany at Mount Sinai (Exodus 24:17 ; Deuteronomy 5:24 ), in the tabernacle (Exodus 29:43 ; 40:34-35 ; Numbers 14:10 ; 16:19,42 ; 20:6 ), in the fire initiating the sacrificial system (Leviticus 9:23 ), and in the ark of the covenant (1618384533_82 ) and the temple of Solomon (1 Kings 8:11 ; 2 Chronicles 7:1-3 ). In a Number of passages it is difficult to know whether God's glory refers to his actual glory or to human recognition of it
Sisters - It is, perhaps, significant of the estimation in which women were held, that although the names of Jesus’ ‘brothers’ are given in detail, we are nowhere in the canonical Gospels told either the names or the Number of His ‘sisters. The daughters of Joseph are almost universally said to be two in Number (‘Genuit quoque sibi … duas filias,’ Hist
Punishments - (Exodus 31:14 ; 35:2 ; Numbers 15:32-36 ) ...
Witchcraft, and false pretension to prophecy. But there is a large Number of offences, some of them included in this list, which are named in the law as involving the,penalty of "cutting off from the people. ( Numbers 25:4 ; 2 Samuel 21:6,9 ) ...
Burning , in pre-Mosaic times, was the punishment for unchastity. ( Genesis 38:24 ) Under the law it was ordered in the case of a priest's daughter (Leviticus 21:9 ) ...
Death by the sword or spear is named in the law, ( Exodus 19:13 ; 32:27 ; Numbers 25:7 ) and it occurs frequently in regal and post-Babylonian times. ( Exodus 21:18-36 ; Leviticus 24:18-21 ; 19:21) Slander against a wife's honor was to be compensated to her parents by a fine of one hundred shekels, and the traducer himself to be punished with stripes (22:18,19) ...
Stripes , whose Number was not to exceed forty, (25:3) whence the Jews took care not to exceed thirty-nine
Poetry - Of these some have reckoned only the rises (accented syllables), and others count the falls also, permitting only a certain Number of them to intervene between rises. This Number is made to depend on the metrical value of the syllables, which, according to some scholars, is determined by the Number of morœ , or time units, which they contain. The view that seems best to suit the facts as they exist, that makes the smallest demands in the way of departure from ordinary prose style, and that yields at the same time results reasonably satisfying to the poetic feeling, is this: the line was composed of a definite Number of accents, or, as ordinarily each word had one accent, of a definite Number of words. It is not to be counted as an exception when, in order to secure the regular Number of accents, two short words must be pronounced as one, as is so often done for other reasons with the insertion of a maqqeph ( ־ ), or when a word exceptionally long and heavy must be pronounced with two accents for the same purpose. ...

Jehoiachin - " In Jeremiah 52:28 the Number is 3,023, but that was the Number carried away "in the seventh year," "in the eighth year" of Nebuchadnezzar the 10,000 were carried away. Evidently, the 4,600 in all mentioned (Jeremiah 52:30) as carried away do not include the general multitude and the women and children (Jeremiah 52:15; Jeremiah 39:9; 2 Kings 25:11), for otherwise the Number would be too small, since the Numbers who returned were 42,360 (Ezra 2; Nehemiah 7). Probably Assir left a daughter, who, according to the law of heiresses (Numbers 37:8; Numbers 36:8-9), married a man of a family of her paternal tribe, namely, Neri descended from Nathan
Number - After the captivity the Hebrew used the alphabet letters for Numbers, 'Αleph ( א ) equalling 1; Βet[1] ( ב ) equalling 2, etc. Our manuscripts all write Numbers at full length. But the variations make it likely that letters (which copyists could so easily mistake) originally were written for Numbers: compare 2 Kings 24:8 with 2 Chronicles 36:9; Isaiah 7:8, where 65 is in one reading, 16 and 5 in another. Numbers also have often a symbolical rather than a mere arithmetical value. ...
Zechariah and Daniel dwell upon seven; Daniel and Revelation use several Numbers to "characterize periods", rather than indicate arithmetical duration. Science reveals in crystallization and chemical combinations what an important part Number plays in the proportion of combining molecules of organic and inorganic life. ...
Three, like seven, is "a divine Number". The Trinity (Revelation 1:4; Revelation 4:8); three great feasts (Exodus 23:14-17; Deuteronomy 16:16); the threefold blessing (Numbers 6:14; Numbers 6:24); the thrice holy (Isaiah 6:3); the three hours of prayer (Daniel 6:10; Psalms 55:17); the third heaven (2 Corinthians 12:2). ...
The Number 3 1/2, one-half of 7, is "a period of evil cut short", shortened for the elect's sake (Matthew 24:22; James 5:17, three years' and a half drought in Israel; Luke 4:25; Revelation 11:2-3; Revelation 11:9; Revelation 12:6). Evidently these Numbers symbolize the long "Gentile times" from the overthrow of Judah's kingdom by Babylon, and of Jerusalem by Titus, down to the restoration of the theocracy in Him "whose right it is" (Ezekiel 21:27). The 42 months answer to Israel's 42 sojournings in the desert (Numbers 33:1-50), contrasted with the sabbatic rest of Canaan. The Numbers especially symbolical are 3, 4, 7, 10, 12, 40; 6 is so because coming short of the "sacred" 7, 8 as coming after 7 and introducing "a new series or era". ...
So in offerings and divine rites: Leviticus 12:2; Leviticus 12:5; Leviticus 13:21-26; Leviticus 13:6; Leviticus 13:4; Leviticus 13:31; Leviticus 13:33; Leviticus 13:50; Leviticus 13:54; Leviticus 14:7-8; Leviticus 14:9; Leviticus 14:16; Leviticus 14:27; Leviticus 14:38; Leviticus 14:51; Leviticus 15:13; Leviticus 15:19; Leviticus 15:28; Leviticus 16:14; Leviticus 16:19; Numbers 12:14; 2 Kings 5:10; 2 Kings 5:14
Red Heifer - He will find the account of it set forth at large, Numbers 19:1-10. Seven times performing the sprinkling of the blood of the heifer may probably mean, as Scripture Numbers sometimes do, an indefinite Number for a definite, by way of shewing the importance of it. The Number seven is certainly used in Scripture with peculiar honour. The seven days of creation, the seventh day for the Sabbath, the seven times seven for the Sabbatical or Jubilee year, and the seventh day becoming an emblem of the everlasting Sabbath of heaven; all these are very high evidences of the peculiar honour conferred on the Number
Millennium - Perhaps Pagans, Turks, Deists, and Jews, will be as few in Number as Christians are now. And who knows but the present convulsions among different nations; the overthrow which popery has had in places where it has been so dominant for hundreds of years; the fulfilment of prophecy respecting infidels, and the falling away of many in the last times; and yet in the midst of all, the Number of missionaries sent into different parts of the world, together with the increase of Gospel ministers; the thousands of ignorant children that have been taught to read the Bible, and the vast Number of different societies that have been lately instituted for the benevolent purpose of informing the minds and impressing the hearts of the ignorant; who knows, I say, but what these things are the forerunners of events of the most delightful nature, and which may usher in the happy morn of that bright and glorious day when the whole world shall be filled with his glory, and all the ends of the earth see the salvation of our God? ...

Feeding the Multitudes - In the first instance (reported in Mark 14:15-21, Mark 6:35-44, Luke 9:12-17, John 6:5-13) the Number is given as 5000, exclusive (so Mt. In the second instance (reported in Matthew 15:32-39, Mark 8:1-9) the Number is given as 4000, Mt. The question of Jesus concerning the Number of loaves, the remarkable circumstance that a second time the disciples had so little food with them, the seating of the people on the ground, the distribution to the Twelve for redistribution among the multitude, the eating until they were filled, the gathering of the broken pieces into baskets, are suspiciously like the feeding of the 5000
Antichrist - "...
"The Number of the beast" is 666, i. 6, the world's Number, in units, tens, and hundreds. Six is next to the sacred seven, which it mimics but falls short of; it is the Number of the world given over to judgment. As twelve is the Number of the church, so six, its half, symbolizes the world kingdoms broken

Mene Mene Tekel Upharsin - The term for ‘mina’ is connected with a root meaning ‘to Number’; hence it signifies ‘God hath Numbered thy kingdom and brought it to an end’: ‘shekel’ is connected with a root meaning ‘to weigh,’ and hence ‘thou hast been weighed in the balance and found wanting’: ‘half-mina’ ( perâs ) suggests a double play; ‘thy kingdom is divided (peris ) and given to the Persians (Aram
