There can be no doubt that when one reads the bible numbers, Biblical Numerology, play a significant role in it’s writing. Examples would be the number seven (7) signifies completion or perfection. Think of the creation story or the story of salvation from the flood Gen 7:2-4. The number 40 (40) is considered to be associated with trials think of the Israelites wandering the wilderness for 40 years or Jesus being tempted for 40 days and many other examples. I can not neglect to mention the number three (3) is considered divine perfection, the Trinity.
Yet when God speaks of numbering our days, here He is not speaking about Biblical Numerology, in fact i believe that this is the last thing God’s intended in every instance and reference of a number in the bible. NO WHERE does God call us to search out and decode some secret number from the bible. Do numbers have meaning? Some others are just well, numbers and wasting our time placing “special” emphasis on them instead of going about our real mission Matthew 28:18-20 of sharing the Good News. – Mike
These verses contain the sanctified use of the foregoing meditations. If such be the transitory state of man upon earth, Lord cause thy people to improve these appointments of thine, to thy glory, and their welfare. Are our days short? Oh, make them gracious. Are they vain and unsatisfying? Oh, direct us to Jesus, who will cause them that love him to inherit substance. Are they full of sin and infirmities? Oh, let the consciousness of these things endear Jesus in his blood and righteousness: and let all the events of a short, unsatisfying, sinful life, make us long for the work of salvation, and the beauty of our Lord God to be upon us. Lord, work in us, and upon us, both to will and to do of thy good pleasure. Philippians 2:13.
