The Bible’s Number 11– Warnings, judgments, confusion, notices, and information – It is no coincidence that the number of 11 is a number associated with different types of information code numbers we began using with our telephone systems years ago. The most often used of these numbers is 411 for general information; 611 for service or questions; and 911 for emergency information and calling for help. We find the number 11 in the Bible used for some of the same reasons and it is often used for the purpose of God warning us in various ways not to turn from him, and if we do, the consequences that may happen.

We also find the number of 11 associated with things that are not right and which need to be corrected – a good example of this is the 11 disciples who are missing the 12th because one has fallen away.  You will find the number 11 in the Bible’s text associated with statements of concern or announcement or warning. In Matthew 20:6 it says “And about the eleventh hour went out and found others standing around; and he *said to them, ‘Why have you been standing here idle all day long?’. Mrk 16:14 Afterward He appeared to the eleven themselves as they were reclining at the table; and He reproached them for their unbelief and hardness of heart…”.

Genesis 11, the 11th chapter of the Bible tells us the story of the Tower of Babel and in verse 11:9 (related to 911) we find God created a calamity because the people were turning from him – Genesis 11:9 Therefore its name was called Babel, because there the LORD confused the language of the whole earth; and from there the LORD scattered them abroad over the face of the whole earth.

Other chapter 11s follow the same pattern as we can see in Leviticus chapter 11 which appears to have been placed intentionally as the 101st (11) chapter of the Bible. This entire chapter is that of both a warning and instructions to live by regarding the separation of the clean from the unclean. Verse two summarizes the chapter: Lev 11:2 “Speak to the sons of Israel, saying, ‘These are the creatures which you may eat from all the animals that are on the earth.

The Bible’s Number 12 — Organizational perfection, laws, regulations, rules, courts, justice, 12 jurors… It seems the number 12 is related to things that are good and right and done well and done according to God’s ordinances. Things established by God as the way things are to be done. Twelve tribes, twelve thrones, twelve disciples, twelve months of a year, twelve hours for day and twelve hours for night…. Twelve is also related to wisdom, authority and the decision we must make about salvation.

I suspect 12 is related to the number three – One is a number for God and two is a number for Jesus and three is a perfect number of the trinity. The third book of the Bible, Leviticus, is about the holiness and righteousness of God. Twelve can be seen as 1+2=3 and it seems to fit that 12 being a number of organizational perfection and justice is likely directly related.

Some verse examples for number 12 – Exodus 28:21 “The stones shall be according to the names of the sons of Israel: twelve, according to their names; they shall be like the engravings of a seal, each according to his name for the twelve tribes”. This 21st verse (another number of perfection and salvation- 7+7+7), associates these twelve sons of Israel with a seal or sign of authority. We also see this in Exodus 39 verse 14 –“The stones were corresponding to the names of the sons of Israel; they were twelve, corresponding to their names, engraved with the engravings of a signet, each with its name for the twelve tribes”. In 1Kings 4:7 we see “Solomon had twelve deputies over all Israel, who provided for the king and his household; each man had to provide for a month in the year”.

In the numeric map we find these themes for 12 as well. Job 12:12 Wisdom is with aged men, With long life is understanding. In the following verse we might associate the number 12 in the chapter and verse with time, or hours in a day, or with the spirit of God – Luke 12:12 “for the Holy Spirit will teach you in that very hour what you ought to say“.

There are many twelve’s in the Bible but one of the most interesting is associated with Jesus, the Tree of Life – Revelation 22:2 in the middle of its street. On either side of the river was the tree of life, bearing twelve kinds of fruit, yielding its fruit every month; and the leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations”.

The Bible’s Number 13 — The spirit of God, spiritual things, or our inability to understand God. Many think of 1st Corinthians 13, the love chapter, when they think of number 13 and naturally imagine 13 is related to love but in western culture we more naturally think of number thirteen as an “unlucky” number and that is actually a closer description.

When not seen in relationship to spiritual things we often see number thirteen associated with man’s inability to grasp God’s laws and our constant desire to do things our own way. It would make sense it is considered a number of bad luck but luck does not have anything to do with how God’s laws work. We should think of number 13 as being associated with our inability on a consistent basis to get things right.

Man’s dim understanding – 1Corinthians 13:11-12 “When I was a child, I used to speak like a child, think like a child, reason like a child; when I became a man, I did away with childish things. v12 For now we see in a mirror dimly, but then face to face; now I know in part, but then I will know fully just as I also have been fully known”.

An example of number 13 in text that reveals how man’s ways are not God’s ways – Ester 3:13 Letters were sent by couriers to all the king’s provinces to destroy, to kill and to annihilate all the Jews, … in one day, the thirteenth day of the twelfth month, which is the month Adar, and to seize their possessions as plunder”.

We find the numeric map also reveals this theme to number 13 – Jeremiah 6:13 “For from the least of them even to the greatest of them, Everyone is greedy for gain, And from the prophet even to the priest Everyone deals falsely and Matthew 6:13 “And do not lead us into temptation, but deliver us from evil...”.

The Bible’s Number 14 — Jesus our Great High Priest, King and Savior of the World.

#14 is a very important number to be aware of as it is the number of passover and of Jesus, our Great High Priest, King and Savior of the World (1John 4:14).  Matthew chapter one which introduces Jesus to the Jews, associates Jesus with number 14 three times. Matt 1:17 So all the generations from Abraham to David are fourteen generations; from David to the deportation to Babylon, fourteen generations; and from the deportation to Babylon to the Messiah, fourteen generations.

Number 14 is, in the same way as Passover, the number of our great high priest, Jesus, the redeemer and savoir. — I have lots of examples of number 14s being associated with Jesus but this like referenced verse set is one of the strongest demonstrations of this number/theme relationship (like referenced verses have common themes running through them).

These are 17 of the Bible’s 45 verses with reference of 4:14. The other’s point to Jesus as well, but in a bit less obvious ways.

  • Exodus 4:14 …the anger of the LORD burned against Moses…
  • Deuteronomy 4:14 The LORD commanded me at that time to teach you statutes and judgments…
  • Joshua 4:14 On that day the LORD exalted Joshua
  • Judges 4:14 “…this is the day…the LORD has given Sisera into your hands…the LORD has gone out before you.
  • Ruth 4:14 Blessed is the LORD who has not left you without a redeemer today
  • Ecclesiastes 4:14 … he has come out of prison to become king, even though he was born poor in his kingdom.
  • Ezekiel 4:14 …Ah, Lord GOD! Behold, I have never been defiled…”
  • Zechariah 4:14 …“…the two anointed ones who are standing by the Lord of the whole earth.”
  • Mark 4:14 “The sower sows the word.
  • Luke 4:14 … Jesus returned to Galilee in the power of the Spirit, and news about Him spread...
  • John 4:14 whoever drinks of the water that I will give him shall never thirst;…”
  • 2Corinthians 4:14 He who raised the Lord Jesus will raise us also with Jesus….
  • Galatians 4:14 … you received me as an angel of God, as Christ Jesus
  • 1Thessalonians 4:14 if we believe that Jesus died and rose again
  • Hebrews 4:14 …we have a great high priest who has passed through the heavens, Jesus the Son of God…
  • 1Peter 4:14 you are reviled for the name of Christ, you are blessed, because the Spirit of glory…
  • 1John 4:14 We have seen and testify…the Father has sent the Son to be the Savior of the world.

A few other of my favorite #14 related evidences:

  • Leviticus 23:5 ‘In the first month, on the fourteenth day of the month at twilight is the LORD’S Passover.
  • Revelation 14:14 behold, a white cloud, and sitting on the cloud was one like a son of man,….
  • Isaiah 14:14 (Satan, wanting to be like Jesus) ‘…I will make myself like the Most High.’
  • Mark 14:14 …’The Teacher says, “Where is My guest room in which I may eat the Passover with My disciples?‘”
    John 14:14 If you ask Me anything in My name, I will do it.
  • Isaiah 8:1 (the Bible’s 14,014th verse) O LORD, our Lord, How majestic is Your name in all the earth

The Bible’s Number 15 — being instructed in God’s ways – statutes/covenants, blessings/curses

Number 15 is about god and others making known to us–telling–instructing–commanding God’s will for our lives. Fifteen can be associated in a negative way referring to those who declare or instruct falsely about God’s ways. In some cases we find examples of those going against God’s instructions or following them. Below are some hyper 15 verse examples:

• Lev 15:15 … So the priest shall make atonement on his behalf before the LORD…
• Num 15:15 …there shall be one statute for you and for the alien who sojourns with you…
• Deu 15:15 …You shall remember that you were a slave in the land of Egypt…
• 1Sam 15:15 …the people spared the best of the sheep and oxen…but the rest we have utterly destroyed.”
• 2Sam 15:15 …your servants are ready to do whatever my lord the king chooses.”
• 2Kin 15:15 …the rest of the acts of Shallum… are written in the Book of the Chronicles…
• 1Chr 15:15 The sons of the Levites carried the ark…according to the word of the LORD.
• Matt 15:15 Peter said to Him, “Explain the parable to us.”
• John 15:15 …all things that I have heard from My Father I have made known to you.
• Act 15:15 With this the words of the Prophets agree, just as it is written,
• Rom 15:15 But I have written very boldly to you…
• 1Cor 15:15 …Moreover we are even found {to be} false witnesses of God…

To further confirm this definition we find 15 “God said” statements in the Bible. In these 15 statements God is instructing us through his word that tells us 15 times when he actually spoke declaring or giving us instruction:

• Gen 1:3 Then God said, “Let there be light”
• Gen 1:6 Then God said, “Let there be an expanse in the midst of the waters…”
• Gen 1:9 Then God said, “Let the waters below the heavens be gathered into one place”
• Gen 1:11 Then God said, “Let the earth sprout vegetation…
• Gen 1:14 Then God said, “Let there be lights in the expanse of the heavens..
• Gen 1:20 Then God said, “Let the waters teem with swarms of living creatures, and let birds fly…”
• Gen 1:24 Then God said, “Let the earth bring forth living creatures after their kind…
• Gen 1:26 Then God said, “Let Us make man in Our image… Gen 1:29 Then God said, “Behold, I have given you every plant yielding seed…it shall be food for you;
• Gen 6:13 Then God said, “The end of all flesh has come before Me…I am about to destroy them…
• Gen 17:15 Then God said, you shall not call her name Sarai, but Sarah {shall be} her name.
• Gen 20:6 Then God said “Yes, I know that in the integrity of your heart…I also kept you from sinning against Me…
• Gen 35:1 Then God said to Jacob, “Arise, go up to Bethel and live there…
• Exo 34:10 Then God said, “Behold, I am going to make a covenant…I will perform miracles…
• Jonah 4:9 Then God said, “Do you have good reason to be angry…

The Bible’s Number 16 — The Godly obedient servants (see 1st 16 verses of Romans 16–16 greet statements for the Godly)

The Bible’s Number 17 — Lifted up and saved as well as thrown down to destruction. The rain of the Flood came down on the 17th day; the ark rested on the 17th day; Jesus was resurrected on the 17th day. Many references throughout the Bible that relate rain and floods with the number 17. Interestingly enough …Blood is also related to the number 17 which seems to relate Blood with flood.

The Bible’s Number 18 — A number of evil and the opposites of good/God. A number of affliction and suffering. Eighteen is three times six or 6+6+6 and I don’t suspect it is coincidence that Revelation 13:18 speaks of the number of the beast Revelation 13:18 “Here is wisdom. Let him who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for the number is that of a man; and his number is six hundred and sixty-six.

Eighteen is also related to the number of turning around or turning back which is 180. Same as the degrees in 1/2 a circle. Note in the following verse that, contains the number 180,000, the reference to restoring a kingdom. Restoring is the same as turning something back–in the reverse direction. 2Chronicles 11:1 “Now when Rehoboam had come to Jerusalem, he assembled the house of Judah and Benjamin, 180,000 chosen men who were warriors, to fight against Israel to restore the kingdom to Rehoboam“.

The 180th verses of each book of the Bible are one of the most interesting sets of verses to present. God’s DNA like intersecting numbers of the numeric map are truly amazing. Note how each of these 180 verses of their respective books speak of some aspect of turning around. This is just a sample of the Bible’s 180 verses.

  • 1Kin 6:1 Now it came about in the four hundred and eightieth year after the sons of Israel came out of the land of Egypt, ….
  • Ecc 10:2 A wise man’s heart {directs him} toward the right, but the foolish man’s heart {directs him} toward the left.
  • Eze 10:11 When they moved, they went in {any of} their four directions without turning as they went; but they followed in the direction which they faced, without turning as they went.
  • Dan 6:12 … “Did you not sign an injunction that any man who makes a petition to any god or man besides you, O king, for thirty days, is to be cast into the lions’ den?” The king replied, “The statement is true, according to the law of the Medes and Persians, which may not be revoked.” (note this is the 180th verse of Daniel as well as chapter and verse that adds to 18).
  • John 5:14 Afterward Jesus *found him in the temple and said to him, “Behold, you have become well; do not sin anymore, so that nothing worse happens to you.”

The Bible’s Number 19 — Being convicted of sin, confessing. Consequences of sin.

Number 19 has both a positive and good side as well as a negative and disastrous side, but the number is most often associated with verses and text related to sin, confessing sin or the punishment for sin and judgment of the Lord. Another number closely associated with #19 is #911 which is also about warnings and consequences for turning away from God. Following are examples supporting the theme for #19:

#19 found in verse text

Seven verses contain the word nineteen in the text and four of them are in reference to numbers, names, or counts, and in whose verse text the theme is not immediately obvious. But three of them seem to reveal the consistent theme of sin and consequences of #19.

2Sam 2:30 …nineteen of David’s servants besides Asahel were missing.
2Kin 25:8 …the nineteenth year …a servant of the king of Babylon, came to Jerusalem.
Jer 52:12 …the nineteenth year…the captain of the bodyguard…in the service of the king of Babylon, came to Jerusalem.

The powerful 1900 related cross Bible verse numbers:

Some of the most reliable evidence for number themes is found in number sets I cannot contrive. An example of this is in the only three cross Bible verse numbers that end in the number 1900. .

  • 1900th – Exo 14:10 …the Egyptians were marching after them, and they became very frightened; so the sons of Israel cried out to the LORD
  • 11900th – 2Chr 32:24 In those days Hezekiah became mortally ill; and he prayed to the LORD, and the LORD spoke to him and gave him a sign.
  • 19000th – Jer 2:34 “… on your skirts is found The lifeblood of the innocent poor; … v35 … I will enter into judgment with you Because you say, ‘I have not sinned.’

The Consistent pattern of 19*19 verses:

Following is another full set of verses with a consistent number pattern association with #19. These are all 10 cross Bible verse numbers that both begin and end with the number 19 and speaks of sin and consequences for sin.

  • 19019 Jer 3:16 “…The ark of the covenant of the LORD.’ …it will not come to mind…nor will they miss it
  • 19119 Jer 6:29 …In vain the refining goes on, But the wicked are not separated.
  • 19219 Jer 10:17 Pick up your bundle from the ground, You who dwell under siege!
  • 19319 Jer 15:3 “I will appoint over them four kinds of doom,”…
  • 19419 Jer 19:11 …”Just so will I break this people and this city, …
  • 19519 Jer 23:34 “… I will bring punishment upon that man and his household.
  • 19619 Jer 27:22 ‘They will be carried to Babylon and they will be there until the day I visit them,’ … “
  • 19719 Jer 31:27 “…days are coming,”…”when I will sow the house of Israel…with the seed of beast.
  • 19819 Jer 34:17 “…You have not obeyed Me …I will make you a terror to all the kingdoms of the earth.
  • 19919 Jer 38:23 ‘…you yourself will not escape from their hand…this city will be burned with fire.’ “

The Bible’s Number 20 — The Expected Messiah – Related to the expectation and foretelling and looking forward to the return of the messiah, Jesus Christ. It appears often to be a direct reference to Jesus body but I believe it is more appropriately thought of as related to the redeemer.

Psa 20:6 Now I know that the LORD saves His anointed; He will answer him from His holy heaven With the saving strength of His right hand. ”

The Bible’s Number 21 — Telling of the coming of the Lord, teaching, preaching. He will give life or judgment, what is due each person – Vengeance, life, death. Jesus the King will return and take his throne. #21 speaks of his return.

Some major verses of support for the 21 theme

  • Waiting for the Lord’s return – Exo 12:18 ‘In the first month, on the fourteenth day of the month at evening, you shall eat unleavened bread, until the twenty-first day of the month at evening.
  • A picture of the return of the Lord – Dan 10:13 “But the prince of the kingdom of Persia was withstanding me for twenty-one days; then behold, Michael, one of the chief princes, came to help me, for I had been left there with the kings of Persia.
  • Hag 2:1 On the twenty-first of the seventh month, the word of the LORD came by Haggai the prophet saying,

21 in text

  • Exo 21:21 “If, however, he survives a day or two, no vengeance shall be taken; for he is his property.
  • 2Kin 24:18 Zedekiah was twenty-one years old when he became king,..
  • 2Chr 36:11 Zedekiah was twenty-one years old when he became king.
  • Ecc 4:9 Two are better than one because they have a good return for their labor.
  • Jer 52:1 Zedekiah was twenty-one years old when he became king,.

The Bible’s Number 22 — Twenty-Two (supplemental evidence for #22) is the number associated with Jesus Christ as God’s Suffering Servant. How do we this is the theme? We learn of God’s numbers themes by examining what numbers are commonly associated with throughout the Bible. We look for prevailing patterns to help us understand common themes. One of the best evidences for number themes is to look for common concepts found in like chapter numbers. This is the method used here to demonstrate the theme for #22, here but it is only a tiny fraction of the available evidence. At the bottom of this list is a link to an additional page that has more evidence supporting the theme. During your own Bible study, watch anything associated with number 22 and you will be surprised how often you can find themes matching Jesus or things directly opposed to him.

Luke 2:21 And when eight days had passed, before His circumcision, His name was {then} called Jesus, the name given by the angel before He was conceived in the womb.

Chapter #22s themes point to Jesus who came to save and protect us

  • There are twenty-two chapter twenty-twos in the Bible and this is the only chapter number that has a like number of chapters — a clue to the extra special nature of this number. I’ve included a brief description to how Jesus relates to the themes in ten of these chapters. The other chapter twenty-twos also point to Jesus. The Bible’s chapter 22’s are compelling evidence of the consistency of the Bible’s Numeric Map as well as the theme for #22.
    • Genesis 22 – Abraham takes Isaac up to the mountain of God as a sacrifice — Gen 22:2 He said, “Take now your son, your only son, whom you love, …offer him there as a burnt offering…”. Note 50 is a number of debts forgiven and Jubilee and this is the 550th verse of the Bible.
    • Numbers 22 – The Angel of the Lord blocks the narrow path – Many Christian scholars agree that it appears when the Angel of the Lord is mentioned in the Bible is it likely an appearance or foreshadowing of Jesus. In Numbers 22 we find the Angel of the Lord blocking the way (the narrow door)– v22 …the angel of the LORD took his stand in the way…Now he was riding on his donkey and his two servants were with him. v26 The angel of the LORD …stood in a narrow place where there was no way to turn to the right hand or the left.
    • Leviticus 22 A perfect sacrifice is demanded (Jesus)— v32 …I am the LORD who sanctifies you, v33 who brought you out from the land of Egypt, to be your God; I am the LORD.
    • Josh 22 – Building an altar and praising the LORD before crossing the Jordan — v22 “The Mighty One, God, the LORD, the Mighty One, God, the LORD! v34 v34 …called the altar Witness; “…it is a witness between us that the LORD is God.
    • Psalms 22 – The savior speaking in the first person speaking from the Cross — Psalm 22:1 says “My God, my God, why have You forsaken me? …” Again, relating to #50 and Jubilee, this is exactly the 500th chapter of the Bible (10×50).
    • Ezekiel 22 – The LORD’s wrath for Jerusalem’s sin — Eze 22:22 ‘…you will be melted in the midst of it; and you will know that I, the LORD, have poured out My wrath on you. “
    • Matthew 22 – Jesus speaks of the wedding feast, Pharisees plot against himv8 …’The wedding is ready, but those who were invited were not worthy. v15 …the Pharisees went and plotted together how they might trap Him in what He said.
    • Luke 22 – Jesus betrayed, trials, he declares himself the son of God — Luke 22:70 …”Are You the Son of God, then?” And He said to them, “Yes, I am.
    • Acts 22 – Jesus appearance to and conversion of Paul — v7 …’Saul, Saul, why are you persecuting Me?’ v8 “…I answered, ‘Who are You, Lord?’ And He said to me, ‘I am Jesus the Nazarene, whom you are persecuting.
    • Revaluation 22 – Final chapter of the Bible – Jesus, the Alpha and Omega — v12 “Behold, I am coming quickly, and My reward is with Me, to render to every man according to what he has done. v13 I am the Alpha and the Omega, the first and the last, the beginning and the end.”

There are mountains of evidence supporting the association of #22 to the theme of Jesus the Suffering Servant. If you are interested in more than the above, click the following link to a secondary page of evidences for the Bible’s #22. (supplemental evidence for #22).

The Bible’s Number 23 — The Lord is with us. Psalms 23 is one of the best examples pointing to the theme of this number. It begins – The Lord is my shepherd. Twenty-three speaks of how God is there to comfort, fight for, and otherwise care for his people. The 23rd verse of Matthew is a very clear explanation of this theme – Matt 1:23 “BEHOLD, THE VIRGIN SHALL BE WITH CHILD AND SHALL BEAR A SON, AND THEY SHALL CALL HIS NAME IMMANUEL,” which translated means, “GOD WITH US.”. Another set of very common examples of the theme for number 23 is surprisingly in verses that refer to two or three. Numbers in verse text often combine to form a number and theme. For example – Matt 18:20 “For where two or three have gathered together in My name, I am there in their midst.”. See also hyper verse 23’s which have both a chapter and verse number of 23 – Ex 23:23 My angel goes before you Jer 23:23 “Am I a God who is near,”… 1Samuel 23:23 ..I will go with you.

#24 The Day of the LORD – (see also – supplemental evidence for #24).

Some say the ancient Egyptions and Babylonians choose number 24 as a division of hours in a day, but like other number symbolism, we find the Bible over and over shows us God defined our day to have twenty four hours. There are hundreds of evidences of this in Biblical text and numbering, but the most compelling is the 24,000th verse of the King James Bible that points very specifically to the future day the Lord Jesus tells us he will return.

Matthew 24:42 “Therefore be on the alert, for you do not know which day your Lord is coming.

This is the most specific reference to the Day of the Lord in the Bible and is where Jesus strongly warns us to be on the alert for this day. The 24,000th verse location is one of the first and most shocking evidences I encountered of the Bible’s DNA-like numbering perfection. Of course, this seems like a product of chance coincidence but the placement of this verse is

The 24,000th Bible verse tells us to be on the alert for the day of the Lord. This verse is one of the most compelling evidences for the supernatural structure of the Bible. Following are the 23,998th through the 24,000th transitional verses.

(23,998) Matt 24:40 “Then there will be two men in the field; one will be taken and one will be left.
(23,999) Matt 24:41 “Two women will be grinding at the mill; one will be taken and one will be left.
(24,000) Matt 24:42 “Therefore be on the alert, for you do not know which day your Lord is coming.

The lining up of this verse text as well as the chapter with the verse reference of 24:42 is amazing. The chapter is about the Day of the Lord; the verse is about the specific day; the verse references of 24 and 42 both point directly to the digits of 24; and all these twenty-fours line up with the exact 24,000th verse location of the Bible. The mathematical probability of all these points falling on a single unique verse location has been calculated at more than billions to one. It seems God’s Word is very serious about wanting us to beware of this awesome day. . (see also – supplemental evidence for #24).

Other evidences that demonstrate this theme for number twenty-four are:

  • Chapter 24s – As we often find, chapter numbers seem to have themes related with the symbolism of the number. We have already discussed Matthew 24 which is the Bible’s main chapter about “The Day of the Lord” but there are other chapters pointing to this theme; Isaiah 24 is also a chapter about the day of the Lord; Genesis 24 tells us of how a bride was found for Isaac (a picture of Jesus and the church?); In Exodus 24 Moses is called up the mountain where he spends 40 days and 40 nights (2 fours?); In Leviticus 24 a man who blasphemed the Name (of God?) was put to death; Numbers 24 tells the prophecy of Asshur and Eber being destroyed and that it is God decides who lives; In Deuteronomy 24 wives of indecency are to be divorced and other laws of who are put to death for their sin; In Joshua 24 Israel gathered before God and must chose who they will serve.; and Ezekiel chapter 24 speaks of a specific day of judgment- Eze 24:2 “…write the name of the day, this very day. The king of Babylon has laid siege to Jerusalem this very day.”. Other chapter 24s have a similar theme – Judgment and death to the wicked and the saving of those that follow God.
  • Psalm 118:24 declares “This is the day which the LORD has made; Let us rejoice and be glad in it.”. Psalm 118 is a very special chapter as it is in a very special location in the Bible. It is the single chapter found exactly between the shortest and longest chapters of the Bible (117 and 119). Since Psalm 117 is the shortest and exact middle chapter of the Bible, Psalm 118 is the first chapter of the last 1/2 of the Bible. But it’s not the numbers of this chapter that make it special – they just point to this chapter to take special note of.  It is about entering heaven. Psalm 118 tells us about the Psalmist seeing the gate to heaven; commenting about it being the door; knocking and asking permission to enter; receiving permission and entering. It concludes saying “this is the Day the Lord has made”.  Not just any day, but the Day the Lord allows us to enter heaven. The Day of the Lord and it is verse 24–I don’t imagine this is coincidence. Not only is this a good example of the number 24, but it is also one of the best examples of how numbers help us interpret the Bible. Number 24 helps us understand the special significance of this verse.
  • The 21.444th verse Eze 38:18 says – “It will come about on that day, when God comes against the land of Israel,” declares the Lord GOD, “that My fury will mount up in My anger.
  • In 2Kings chapter 2 we learn of the day when Elijah was taken up to heaven. It is interesting that the 42nd verse of 2Kings is also verse 24 where we also find two (2) female bears coming out of the woods and tearing up forty-two (42) lads. Seems a day of judgment comparable to the day of the Lord. Interesting the numbers in the text match the verse reference of 2:24 – “When he looked behind him and saw them, he cursed them in the name of the LORD. Then two female bears came out of the woods and tore up forty-two lads of their number.”

The Bible’s Number 25 — Related to the physical appearance of the messiah, Jesus Christ, on earth. The verses at the 25,000th locations are the most intense clues to this meaning as this transitional verse tells of when Jesus was presented as a baby to the temple priest. Following are the 24,999th, 25,000th and 25,001th verses of the Bible.

Luke 2:25 And there was a man in Jerusalem whose name was Simeon; and this man was righteous and devout, looking for the consolation of Israel; and the Holy Spirit was upon him.
Luke 2:26 And it had been revealed to him by the Holy Spirit that he would not see death before he had seen the Lord’s Christ.

Luke 2:27 And he came in the Spirit into the temple; and when the parents brought in the child Jesus, to carry out for Him the custom of the Law,

The Bible’s Number 26 — The Amazing number of God/Jesus — Pay special attention to number 26 because the number/text associations to its meaning are truly incredible. Examine the list of clues below and see if you don’t agree that #26 is a number for a holy and righteous God – more specifically, #26 seems a number purely about God and Jesus…

  • The Hebrew name for God, YHWH, has a numerical value of 26 — The Hebraic letters YHWH are assigned gematria/numeric values of 10, 5, 6 and 5 which together add up to 26 (multiple web sites note this-search for #26 and God).
  • The 26th verse of the Bible speaks of the image of God — Genesis 1:26 Then God said, “Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness;… “
  • The value for the letters of God’s name is 26 — Interestingly enough and not likely a coincidence – if you assign a gematria/numeric value of 1-26 to each letter of the alphabet, the characters G-O-D have values of 7, 15 and 4 which add to #26 – God=26.
  • The foundation of the House of God – Twenty and Six (26) — Scripture says the width and length of the House of God are twenty cubits and six cubits (26/62). Found in 1Kings 6:2 (62/26) “As for the house which King Solomon built for the LORD, its length was sixty cubits and its width twenty cubits and its height thirty cubits”. This dimension is also found in 2 Chronicles 3:3. The height of 30 cubits relates to #30 about purity and righteousness.
  • Leviticus chapter #26 declares “I AM THE LORD” — This is the 116th chapter (2 and 6 = 26) and the first verse finds itself as the 3526th Bible verse. The verse reference numbers as well as the text suggest the theme of ” I AM THE LORD” and “THIS IS WHAT YOU WILL DO”. As a clue to this theme, the phrases “I Will” and “You will” are found throughout the chapter. The first and last verse frame this chapter’s theme — the first verse declaring I am the Lord your God” and the last verse ends by saying I am the Lord their God”.
  • Matt 26:26 Explains Jesus is the bread of life — …Jesus took some bread …broke it…and said, “Take, eat; this is My body.”
  • Eleven non-random #26 related related verses about God/Jesus — (You might need to think about this for a couple of moments to let it sink into your comprehension) — If you sequentially number the Bibles verses from 1 to 31,102, you find just eleven cross-Bible verse numbers that both begin and end with number 26. Every one of these are consistent in their context of association with God/Jesus. You can find this number/text consistency with any number, but this set is the most clear example I’ve seen. Seemingly impossible to be coincidence, it also is compelling evidence for the perfection of the Bible’s Numeric Map.
    • BV(2626) — The Lampstand and 26 — Exo 37:21 and a bulb was under the first pair of branches coming out of it, and a bulb under the second pair of branches coming out of it, and a bulb under the third pair of branches coming out of it, for the six branches coming out of the lampstand. It is interesting this verse mentions 3 pairs of branches (6 branches) and then again the text says “six branches”. Six and six is two sixes (66/26).
    • BV(26026) — The Risen Lord and 26 — Luke 24:34 saying, “The Lord has really risen and has appeared to Simon.”
    • BV(26126) — The Kingdom of God and 26 — John 3:5 Jesus answered, “Truly, truly, I say to you, unless one is born of water and the Spirit he cannot enter into the kingdom of God.
    • BV(26226) — Jesus the healer and 26 — John 5:15 The man went away, and told the Jews that it was Jesus who had made him well.
    • BV(26326) — The only way to be saved and 26 — John 6:68 Simon Peter answered Him, “Lord, to whom shall we go? You have words of eternal life.
    • BV(26426) — The father of lies and 26 (opposite meaning) — John 8:44 “You are of your father the devil, and you want to do the desires of your father. … for he is a liar and the father of lies. Every number has both a positive and opposite or negative theme. This verse reflects satan which is as opposite from God as we find in the Bible.
    • BV(26526) — Anointed Jesus and 26 — John 11:2 It was the Mary who anointed the Lord with ointment, and wiped His feet with her hair, whose brother Lazarus was sick.
    • BV(26626) — God, the one who sent Jesus, and 26 — John 12:45 He who sees Me sees the One who sent Me.
    • BV(26726) — God the father sent the spirit of truth (v26) and 26 — John 15:26 “When the Helper comes, whom I will send to you from the Father, that is the Spirit of truth who proceeds from the Father, He will testify about Me,
    • BV(26826) — The Son of God rejected and 26 — John 18:40 So they cried out again, saying, “Not this Man, but Barabbas.” Now Barabbas was a robber.
    • BV(26926) — Jesus taken up to heaven/gave orders/chose apostles and 26 — Acts 1:2 until the day when He was taken up to heaven, after He had by the Holy Spirit given orders to the apostles whom He had chosen.

The above are just a small token of available evidence associating #26 as the number of God. This evidence could stand alone in demonstrating that only God could have prepared his word in such a perfect DNA like intersection of number/text relationships.

The Bible’s Number 27 — A number often directly related to Jesus Christ. Twenty-seven is also related to the number 77 which has a similar meaning. It seems 27 is often associated to the Holy Spirit or what I imagine as Jesus inside us. The witness of God and Jesus. Jesus testifies to himself; 144,000 (2×72,000) witness on the earth about Jesus.

The first verses of the Bible are one of the best sources for understanding number themes. I suspect this is because the are the most purely numbered verses. For example, Genesis 1:27 is; the 27th verse of the first chapter and the first book. It’s cross-Bible verse number is 27 and its cross-book verse number is 27. The numbers we know of that influence/validate the verse contents are all about number 1 and number 27.

Gen 1:27 God created man in His own image, in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them.

The Bible’s Number 28 — Jesus our Great High Priest who intercedes for us – Jesus is our only way to eternal life. Through his death on the cross we can have access to eternal life by claiming Jesus blood as the only acceptable sacrifice for our sins. Number 28 points to this aspect of Jesus as our High Priest who intercedes with God so we might live.

A major mention of the number 28 in the Bible’s text is found in Exodus 26:2 that tells us of the curtain that separates men from the Holy of Holies – The length of each curtain shall be twenty-eight cubits, and the width of each curtain four cubits; all the curtains shall have the same measurements”. The verse clearly tells of the barrier between God and men. This is the same type of curtain which was torn in two (from top to bottom) when Jesus died on the cross. It is interesting that adding the chapter and verse reference of 26:2 also produces the #28 which may be further evidence of the number theme. This is also the 2238th Bible verse with first and last digits of the number being #28 – a common type of number pattern found in the scriptures.

Another example of this picture of Jesus as our High Priest can be seen in Matthew 27:28 where a scarlet robe is put on Jesus – verse 28 says “They stripped Him and put a scarlet robe on Him. This verse is part of the 956th chapter about the Lamb of God who takes away the sins of the World. The 56 in chapter number 956 suggests an association with #28 (2×28=56). The cross Bible verse sequence number of 24158 also supports this verse being related to #28.  Another #28 related verse is Ephesians 2:18 which says “for through Him we both have our access in one Spirit to the Father” – it also shows Jesus our High Priest intercedes for us.

The Bible’s 828 Book Verses confirm the #28 theme…

There are 16 books with an 828th verse and these verses all somehow point to acts of either the Lord interceding for us, or how one intercedes for another. As impossible as it the thought is, the Bible’s DNA like Numeric Map seems to have meaningful intersections of numbers in every direction you investigate. Like referenced cross book verse numbers have common threads of themes running through them which allows you to quickly investigate many verses to better understand related number themes. In looking at this set of 828 verses, you will find some examples more obvious than others, but I’ve still provided the complete set so those interested can examine for themselves if the preponderance of evidence in them shows a theme of intercession, or one standing up for another.

While examining these verses take note that they are not only clues to the meaning of #28, but by understanding the theme running through the set, their text can collectively be better understood. That is, the verses help understand the numbers, and the numbers in return help interpret the verses. Many worry that studying Biblical numerics will lead to misinterpretation, but actually the Bible’s numbers are a guide to more accurate interpretation..

Gen 29:32 “…the LORD has seen my affliction; surely now my husband will love me.” (because of the son, she shall be loved)

Exo 29:24 and you shall put all these in the hands of Aaron and … (Aaron the High Priest)

Lev 27:3 ‘…your valuation shall be fifty shekels of silver… (See 27:28 about the valuation of those set apart for the Lord) v28 …anything which a man sets apart to the LORD

Num 23:16 Then the LORD met Balaam and put a word in his mouth …”

Deu 30:12 “…’Who will go up to heaven for us to get it for us…?’

1Chr 26:3 Elam the fifth, Johanan the sixth, Eliehoenai the seventh. (gatekeepers guarding the temple – names suggest young men/priests?)

Job 34:14 “If He should determine to do so, If He should gather to Himself (Job’s friend speaks of the power given to the almighty to redeem the whole world),

Psa 56:12 Your vows are binding upon me, O God;.(Psalm 56 the Psalmist puts his trust in the Lord for his redemption. Note chapter 56=2×28)..

Prov 29:4 The king gives stability to the land by justice,….

Isa 42:2 “He will not cry out or raise His voice, (the 721st chapter (28?) speaks of God’s servant who will intervene for the people ..a bruised reed)….

Jer 32:43 ‘Fields will be bought in this land …” (the lord will intervene)

Eze 33:12 “… ‘The righteousness of a righteous man will not deliver him …’ (an intercessor is needed)

Matt 24:15 “…when you see the ABOMINATION OF DESOLATION …standing in the holy place (as if he was the intercessor),

Luke 18:33 and after they have scourged Him, they will kill Him; (Jesus intercedes for our sin)

John 20:5 and stooping and looking in, he saw the linen wrappings lying there; but he did not go in. (The evidence Jesus was resurrected as he said he would be. Might the linen wrappings be a reference to a kind of royal robe?)

Act 23:17 Paul …said, “Lead this young man to the commander, for he has something to report…” (the young man intercedes for Paul).

Number 28 is related to #14 about Jesus the King as 14×2=28. This demonstrates how numbers can have similar and related meanings while themselves representing specific aspects of the overall meaning. #14 and #28 are both about Jesus, #14 for Jesus the King and #28 for Jesus the High Priest who intercedes for us.

The Bible’s Number 29 — An incredible number of the soon coming of Jesus to redeem the Godly

One of the most amazing number 29 related verses in the Bible is John 1:29 which says “The next day he saw Jesus coming to him and *said, “Behold, the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world!”. More evidence of the preciseness of the Bible’s Numeric Map is that John 1:29 is the 2,929th verse of the New Testament.

Twenty-nine is related to many 999 type numbers. Ninety-nine is a way of expressing the last thing done before the end of things. Other related numbers are 92, 99, 999 and even 911 (92). The 29th chapter of the New Testament is Mark chapter 1 which seems a summary overview of the events of Jesus return.

The phrase “in a little while” is in 29 verses – the return of the Lord

I don’t consider myself a Bible scholar so do not want to presume I understand what this means, but I have observed how #29 is associated to the return of the Lord and then later noticed the phrase “little while” occurs in 29 Bible verses. My experience says this is not coincidence – the verse text also demonstrates strong references to the coming of the Lord down to earth. It appears this phrase speaks of times related to both his first and second coming. I suspect, if we could understand the message, it could be a clue to when the Lord will actually return.

The Phrase “little while” used in reference to Jesus time in his first coming

Notice how the following verses using the term “little while” seem to speak of the time Jesus was on earth. I wonder if it related to the number of years Jesus was among us which is said by many to be around 30?

  • John 7:33 …Jesus said, “For a little while longer I am with you, then I go to Him who sent Me.
  • John 16:16 A little while, and you will no longer see Me; and again a little while, and you will see Me.”
  • John 16:18 So they were saying, “What is this that He says, A little while’? We do not know what He is talking about.
  • John 14:19 “After a little while the world will no longer see Me, but you will see Me; because I live, you will live also.
  • John 13:33 “Little children, I am with you a little while longer. You will seek Me; and as I said to the Jews, now I also say to you, ‘Where I am going, you cannot come.’
  • Heb 2:9 But we do see Him who was made for a little while lower than the angels, namely, Jesus, because of the suffering of death crowned with glory and honor, so that by the grace of God He might taste death for everyone.
  • Mrk 14:70 But again he denied it. And after a little while the bystanders were again saying to Peter, “Surely you are one of them, for you are a Galilean too.”
  • John 12:35 So Jesus said to them, “For a little while longer the Light is among you. Walk while you have the Light, so that darkness will not overtake you; he who walks in the darkness does not know where he goes.
  • John 16:17 Some of His disciples then said to one another, “What is this thing He is telling us, ‘A little while, and you will not see Me; and again a little while, and you will see Me’; and, ‘because I go to the Father’?”
  • John 16:19 Jesus knew that they wished to question Him, and He said to them, “Are you deliberating together about this, that I said, ‘A little while, and you will not see Me, and again a little while, and you will see Me?

The Phrase “little while” used in reference to when he will return

The following verses that include the phrase “little while” seem to speak of the time until the Lord’s return or about what will happen upon his return.

  • Isa 26:20 Come, my people, enter into your rooms And close your doors behind you; Hide for a little while Until indignation runs its course.
  • Jer 51:33 … Yet in a little while the time of harvest will come for her.”
  • Hag 2:6 “… ‘Once more in a little while, I am going to shake the heavens and the earth...
  • Isa 10:25 “For in a very little while My indignation against you will be spent…”
  • 1Pet 5:10 After you have suffered for a little while, the God of all grace, who called you to His eternal glory in Christ, will Himself perfect, confirm, strengthen and establish you.
  • Rev 6:11 And there was given to each of them a white robe; and they were told that they should rest for a little while longer, until the number of their fellow servants and their brethren who were to be killed even as they had been, would be completed also.
  • Rev 17:10 and they are seven kings; five have fallen, one is, the other has not yet come; and when he comes, he must remain a little while.
  • Psa 37:10 Yet a little while and the wicked man will be no more; And you will look carefully for his place and he will not be there.
  • Jam 4:14 Yet you do not know what your life will be like tomorrow. You are a vapor that appears for a little while and then vanishes away.

  • Eze 11:16 “Therefore say, ‘Thus says the Lord GOD, “Though I had removed them far away among the nations and though I had scattered them among the countries, yet I was a sanctuary for them a little while in the countries where they had gone.'”

These verses that use the term “little while” seem to both confirm Jesus claim that he will return and give us some indication that when he does, it will be a time of “indignation”.

Notes on 29

  • Number 29 is the 10th prime number (assuming 1 is prime which biblical numbers suggest)

There’s much evidence supporting the association of #29 with the theme of Jesus return. Click the following link to a secondary page of evidences for the Bible’s #29. (supplemental evidence for #29).

-top of page-

The Bible’s Number 30 — A number of anointing, purity and making clean. Often related to the Holy Spirit (10 times 3).

The Bible’s Number 31 — A number of completion of fullness. Often has text that suggests the inclusion of all things, everything, everyone. Is also related to #13 in a spiritual sense and thus a reference to those saved or not saved. In the examples that follow I’ve used some of the Bible’s 3:10 verses which are a type of hyper or super 31 type verse.

Mal 3:10 Bring the whole tithe into the storehouse, so that there may be food in My house, and test Me now in this,” says the LORD of hosts, “if I will not open for you the windows of heaven and pour out for you a blessing until it overflows.
Matt 3:10 “The axe is already laid at the root of the trees; therefore every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire.
Zech 3:10 ‘In that day,’ declares the LORD of hosts, ‘every one of you will invite his neighbor to sit under his vine and under his fig tree.’ “

The Bible’s Number 32 — Like 222, a number for Jesus…TBD

The Bible’s Number 33 — A holy spirit number but seems often related to separation of Good and bad. –TBD

Points of interest

  • There are 303 verse 33s in the Bible

The Bible’s Number 34 — Two times 17 which is a number for resurrection. Has differences from 17 – TBD

The Bible’s Number 35 — Related to the lifting up of the saints or the destruction of the wicked. Very much similar to the number 53 (153 fish lifted up, Isaiah chapter 53) but has some differences — TBD

The Bible’s Number 36 — (See also 2012-01-23 – Blog Post – Rev 13:18 The number of the beast…24 verses of scripture that also reveal #666 is a number of great evil ) – related to being covered or surrounded as if being in a sphere or circle (360 degrees). Related to John 3:16, 1John 4:9 and Ruth 4:9 -the number 36 can be related to salvation – our sins “covered” and being forgiven. It is not only a number of being forgiven, but #36 in the negative sense is a number of being unforgiven and found with things of extreme sin (666=three sixes). It is very often seen related to things of the world (flesh), or things not of this world/earth (spirit). #360 is also associated #180 (a factor of 360 – 2×180) and found in reference to things covered (half circle) or in reference to direction such as turning to the right/left; going backwards/forwards; or turning around such as towards or away from God.

The Bible’s Number 37 — A number of perfection and salvation very similar to 777 and more directly related to 73. — See number 777 for more information…

The Bible’s Number 38 — 888 is a number for Jesus as demonstrated in many writings by being the gematria number for Jesus name in the greek. — TBD

The Bible’s Number 39 —Directly related to Israel and the Jews. I believe it is an indication of them still wandering in the wilderness (40-1). There are 39 books in the Old Testament and it is amazing the first chapter of the New Testament is the 930th chapter of the Bible (93 and 39 are directly related. Lots of other evidences for supporting this claim.

The Bible’s Number 40 — Wilderness wandering, testing, trials. Periods of testing such as the 40 days Jesus was tested in the wilderness. God’s number 40 seems to be about appointed times of trials and testing in the wilderness. Number 4 is related to the creation and things of our earth and thus we can see our time on earth as a time “in the wilderness”. After the appointed time of man’s wilderness wandering on earth the end of the age will come. This end of the age is also associated to #40 as can be seen in the example verses.

This 17th chapter of the Bible reveals Abram being delivered by God, given a new name and a new covenant. #17 is a number of being delivered or being set apart. In Genesis 7, the rain for the flood began on the 17th day and the ark later rested on the 17th day. Jesus was crucified on the 14th which was Passover and was raised three days later on the 17th. You will find this sort of lifting up and saving or casting down of the wicked in the Bible’s chapter 17s as well as other #17 related text. Note, this chapter begins with the 399th verse of Genesis – #99 is a number of things that occur just before the end and in this 399th verse Abram was 99 years old. In verse 2, which is the 400th verse of the chapter, Abraham’s new life begins. #40 and #400 are related to periods of trials testing and also is a reference to the end of testing.

Example verses for #40

  • #40 – a number of cleansing/preparation – God used 40 days of flood to both cleanse the earth of sin and save the remnant. Note: verse 7:4 has seven and four mentioned in the text – Gen 7:4 “For after seven more days, I will send rain on the earth forty days and forty nights… “
  • #40 – Moses spent 40 years in wilderness – Note the verse reference of 7:30 relating it to #73 and #777 which is a number of sanctification. – Act 7:30After forty years had passed, AN ANGEL APPEARED TO HIM IN THE WILDERNESS OF MOUNT Sinai, IN THE FLAME OF A BURNING THORN BUSH.
  • 4,000th Bible verse (10×40) – in the 4th Book, at the 4000th verse, the wilderness wandering begins – Numbers 10:11 Now in the second year, in the second month, on the twentieth of the month, the cloud was lifted from over the tabernacle of the testimony;.
  • #40 – orders to set out – Deu 1:40 ‘But as for you, turn around and set out for the wilderness by the way to the Red Sea.
  • #40 – a time of preparationGen 50:3 Now forty days were required for it, for such is the period required for embalming
  • #40 – the end is coming – #24 is also a reference to the end coming (The Day of the Lord). Notice that a day’s walk would be 24 hours? Jnah 3:4 Then Jonah began to go through the city one day’s walk; and he cried out and said, “Yet forty days and Nineveh will be overthrown.
  • “About” #40 years = 38 years? – We understand the time of wandering was about 38 years as seems to be confirmed by this verse – take note of the verse reference to #38 – Act 13:18For a period of about forty years He put up with them in the wilderness.


  • #40 – calling from the wilderness – Isaiah – Isa 40:3 A voice is calling, “Clear the way for the LORD in the wilderness; Make smooth in the desert a highway for our God.
  • #40 end of the age/at an appointed time – Dan 11:40At the end time the king of the South will collide with him.
  • #40 testing God/resulting wilderness years – Num 14:34 ‘According to the number of days which you spied out the land, forty days, for every day you shall bear your guilt a year, even forty years
  • #40 – testing/trials – Heb 3:9 where your fathers tried me by testing me, and saw my works for forty years.


  • #40 – a time of preparation – 1Cor 14:40 But all things must be done properly and in an orderly manner
  • #40 – the end of wandering – When we accept Jesus as our Lord and savior, our wilderness wandering ends – John 11:40if you believe, you will see the glory of God?

The Bible’s Number 41 — Related to number 14 related to Jesus the King and Redeemer but seems more often to be in a negative way.  TBD.

Points of interest

  • There are 141 verse 41s in the Bible

The Bible’s Number 42 — Seems often associated to sin and the number six. It is 42 months, 3.5 years or 1260 days related to the prophecy of Jesus return and tribulation numbers.

The Bible’s Number 43 — Resurrection only comes by humbly coming before Jesus — The symbolism of number 43 is about us doing the only thing we can to be saved and resurrected to eternal life–it is about what we must do to be saved.  The word “resurrection” is found 43 times in the Bible and it will be found related to text somehow related to coming before Jesus to seek his forgiveness.

There are only a few examples of number 43 found in the Bible’s text and they are a bit obscure to examine so the evidence here will be taken from associations to Biblical reference numbers. One of the clearest associations to number 43 is found in 1Kings chapter 7 which tells us about the temple’s furniture and in this verse, the stands of bronze which had dimensions of 4x4x3 cubits. Every number in text of the Bible has meaning – we may not understand them all but we should realize nothing found in the scrip tires is left to chance. 1Kings 7:27 contains the digits 4 and 3 which suggests a possible symbolic meaning with 43 says – “Then he made the ten stands of bronze; the length of each stand was four cubits and its width four cubits and its height three cubits”. These stands were for making offerings to God for sin and are examples of how we are to come before God with our offerings seeking his forgiveness. Our offering is no longer the sacrifice of an animal’s blood but is rather that of presenting our faith in the Lamb of God, Jesus, who died on the cross to free us from the debt of sin.

If this reference was the only evidence for the symbolism for 43 we could not place much value on it, but it appears to be confirmed by many other associations to 43 referenced scrip tires:

The Bible’s Number 44 — Seems a number of warning to obey God’s Word. 44 and 444 both seem related to the word.

The Bible’s Number 45 — You will know that I am the Lord–truly recognizing God

You will know I am the Lord

Number forty-five seems to have a theme of God preserving his people so that they might believe his is the only God.

Genesis chapter 45 is where Joseph finally appeared to his brothers. He had been taking care of them and brought them out of their land of famine to Egypt, then a land where they could be preserved. He gave them everything they needed and said they need not worry about anything while they were there. He was taking care of them–he was the Lord of the land only reporting to Pharaoh in the same way Jesus only answers to God. This chapter is a great picture of the number of 45.  There are only three mentions of the number forty-five in text – In Genesis 18:28 we find Abraham negotiating with God to save Lot and Sodom and God responds “I will not destroy it if I find forty-five there”. Another mention of forty-five is found in Joshua 14:10 where it says “Now behold, the LORD has let me live, just as He spoke, these forty-five years…”.

Examples of 45 found in the Numeric Map are;  Genesis 45:5 says “Now do not be grieved or angry with yourselves, because you sold me here, for God sent me before you to preserve life…”; In Leviticus 11:45 God reminds Israel “For I am the LORD who brought you up from the land of Egypt to be your God; thus you shall be holy, for I am holy.”.

The number 45 is also related to number 54 (see number 54). The combined chapter and verse reference of Exodus 4:5 is related to 45 (like all 4:5 verses) and is in the Bible’s 54th chapter. It says “that they may believe that the LORD, the God of their fathers, the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob, has appeared to you.”.

Other 45 related verses

  • Exo 29:45 “I will dwell among the sons of Israel and will be their God”.

Those who do not trust or know the lord

The other side of knowing to trust God is about those that do not trust God because they do not know him. This theme is also found in 45 related text in the 154th chapter in cross bible verse number 4925 (relates to 45) Deuteronomy 1:32 says “But for all this, you did not trust the LORD your God,”.

The Bible’s Number 46 –Those who have chosen to serve the Lord–4600 Sons of Israel


The Bible’s Number 47 — Separating the clean from the unclean – To be saved, must accept Jesus and also obey his word. Notice that these verses speak of putting action to confidence we put in Christ. There are few examples of #47 found in the text of scripture so to get an idea of the symbolism of the number, examine the following verses with 4 and 7 or 47 in their numbering. These are not intended to prove the meaning, but rather to help provide the concept so you can look for it in your own study.

Gen 4:7 “…if you do not do well, sin is crouching at the door; …but you must master it.”
Eze 4:7 “… you shall set your face toward the siege of Jerusalem …prophesy against it.
Hos 4:7 The more they multiplied, the more they sinned against Me; I will change their glory into shame.

The Bible’s Number 48 —Knowing, seeing, experiencing — God and who he is–watching for the Lord’s return. Also relates to knowing other things

Genesis 48 is the 48th Bible chapter and it is filled with themes and phrases about beholding/knowing. Also, 48 can be about not knowing or comprehending. Observe a few of the “knowing/being told” statements in Genesis 48:

Gen 48:1 …Joseph was told, “Behold, your father is sick.”…
Gen 48:2 was told to Jacob, “Behold, your son Joseph has come to you,”…
Gen 48:3 ..Jacob said to Joseph, “God Almighty appeared to me..
Gen 48:4 …He said to me, ‘Behold, I will make you fruitful and numerous..
Gen 48:8 When Israel saw Joseph’s sons, he said, “Who are these?”
Gen 48:9 Joseph said..”They are my sons, whom God has given me here.” So he said, “Bring them to me, please, that I may bless them.”
Gen 48:10 ..the eyes of Israel were so dim from age that he could not see
Gen 48:11 ..”I never expected to see your face, and behold, God has let me see your children as well.”
Gen 48:17 When Joseph saw
Gen 48:18 Joseph said to his father, “Not so, my father, for this one is the firstborn
Gen 48:19 …“I know, my son, I know;
Gen 48:21 …Israel said to Joseph, “Behold, I am about to die, but God will be with you

Following are some of the New Testament’s chapter 4 verse 8 verses (numeric patterns reveal combinations of chapter and verse number together form meaning symbolic numbers). It seems a theme found in these verses is about seeking to know God, know who he is, to love him and that he teaches us who he is. Conversely it can also be about those who don’t know who God is. Note, these verses likely represent the theme related to both the number 48 and 84…

48th Bible verse Gen 2:17 but from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil you shall not eat, for in the day that you eat from it you will surely die.”

Jam 4:8 Draw near to God and He will draw near to you. Cleanse your hands, you sinners; and purify your hearts, you double-minded.

1Joh 4:8 The one who does not love does not know God, for God is love.

Gal 4:8 However at that time, when you did not know God, you were slaves to those which by nature are no gods.

Philp 4:8 Finally, brethren, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is of good repute, if there is any excellence and if anything worthy of praise, dwell on these things.

Luke 4:8 Jesus answered him, “It is written, ‘YOU SHALL WORSHIP THE LORD YOUR GOD AND SERVE HIM ONLY.’

1Tim 4:8 for bodily discipline is only of little profit, but godliness is profitable for all things, since it holds promise for the present life and {also} for the {life} to come.

Mrk 4:8 “Other seeds fell into the good soil, and as they grew up and increased, they yielded a crop and produced thirty, sixty, and a hundredfold.”

Col 4:8 For I have sent him to you for this very purpose, that you may know about our circumstances and that he may encourage your hearts;

2Tim 4:8 in the future there is laid up for me the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous Judge, will award to me on that day; and not only to me, but also to all who have loved His appearing.

1The 4:8 So, he who rejects this is not rejecting man but the God who gives His Holy Spirit to you.

Rev 4:8 And the four living creatures, each one of them having six wings, are full of eyes around and within; and day and night they do not cease to say, “HOLY, HOLY, HOLY is THE LORD GOD, THE ALMIGHTY, WHO WAS AND WHO IS AND WHO IS TO COME.”

The Bible’s Number 49 — A very interesting number that is put in perspective when you understand the meaning of number 50 which is about Jubilee and the forgiveness of debt and sin. Forty-nine is the last number prior to 50 and is a number that says we are near the time of Jubilee and also of the return of the Lord.
