Yes, and I have already explained just a small impossibility in your theory....

And, BTW, you are aware that chapter and verses were not part of the original manuscripts, are you not?
And so, any counting strategy based on occurrences in verses or chapters are meaningless since they are man-made additions many centuries after the fact.
You have seen the original manuscripts? You might be the only person alive who has!

It is nothing more than counting. Revelation 13; Ecclesiastes 7
Nothing more than counting? Really. Where in this fascination with numbers and all the counting you do and the time it takes to study all this for whatever purpose and then the time you make to defend it all, where in all this do you profess the love of God for humanity, and the sacrifice He made of His Son due to His great everlasting love for us, to be a propitiatory atoning sacrifice for the sins of the world, that those who believe on Him by grace through faith, may be reconciled to God, and attain to life ever after? The great commission said nothing about counting numbers.

To point out that the King James Bible is the word of God and that it is in perfect order. It is actually the pattern of the number 47 I have been studying lately but I had to mention the number 46 first.

Obviously you had no idea that they were not part of the original manuscripts....
One could drive an aircraft carrier through the holes in your theories!

I only found like 2 or 3 places that [tells us to count]


For which of you, intending to build a tower, does not sit down first and count the cost,
whether he has enough to finish it—


Here is wisdom. Let him who has understanding calculate the number of the beast,
for it is the number of a man: His number is 666.


or to Count days, to find proper pentacost day

You miss the point! The originals actually do not exist anymore so if God wasn't concerned with preserving the grass and flesh they were written on, why should I care about them. I care about the Book in my hand and the one in my hand has number divisions!

How many times is the letter A in the bible that you used for these calculations? Your calculations are all over the place. You talk about 46 yet mention 23 a bunch of times. Which is it, 23 or 46? I thought that 37 was your favorite number. Now you're saying that the number 47 holds significance. So I guess that all the numbers from 1 to 47 are important at this point of your study. Let me know when you reach 99.

And you are basing your counting theories on man-made additions from just a few centuries ago as an apparently inspired code from God!

For you, ignorance is obviously a splendid thing...

have you heard of the "23 and me?"

23 chromosome pairs = 46 (23 x 2) chromosomes. I pair of shoes = 2 shoes

God used men to write the "original manuscripts" so what is your point!

King James Bible uses the word count. Some modern versions say calculate in Revelation 13:18. What is calculating?

verse
2 Corinthians 13:1 you gave does not tell us to count numbers in the bible.


not sure where else [we are told] to count.

But you can count and do anything you want.

I see no use to waste my time to count, and devide chapter and verse numbers

It is my impression (and other responses may prove me wrong) that most members of the forum do NOT share your fascination with numbers and are not ready to attach any great significance to them.
I would agree. While there are some biblical numbers which indicate their significance in Scripture (such as 7 and 12) we should not go overboard on the significance of how many times a word occurs etc.

It is the number of times that words and phrases occur that make up the structure of the Bible just as the number of boards, sockets, tenons etc. made up the structure of the tabernacle.

conceived” 46 times in the Bible

Don't forget about this coincidence too!


Any woman who did that would be a glutton for punishment.

2 or 3 places in the Bible can be considered as a witness. That is why the Bible has an Old and New Testament.
