As an example, the number seven is included in the Bible 735 times, or 860 times with the inclusion of the words "sevenfold" and "seventh," according to BibleStudy.org. The number is supposed to represent perfection, partially because there are seven days in the week with the day of Sabbath occurring on the seventh. It took God seven days to create the world including the Sabbath, and the world "create" is used seven times in that part of the Bible. The Bible was also originally divided into seven parts, with the number of books totalling 49, which is seven squared.

The number three is also significant in the Bible, partially due to the Trinity of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit, states Carm.org. The number three also refers to the number of appearances of Jesus Christ: the past, the present and the future. God also spoke about Jesus Christ from Heaven on three occasions in the Bible: Matt 3:17, Matt 17:5 and John 12:28. Additionally, the Bible names three divine attributes of God; He is omniscient, omnipresent and omnipotent.
