Biblical Numerology: NUMBER THREE – Part l


    And if one prevail against him, two shall withstand him; and a threefold cord is not quickly broken. Ecclesiastes 4: 12, K.J.V.

The prophet Daniel refers to Jesus Christ only once as “the one saint” (margin, Palmoni).  In a literal translation of the first part of the verse 13 of Daniel chapter 8, just before introducing the 2300-day prophecy in verse 14, F. C. Gilbert, a converted Jew, in his book, Practical Lessons for the Church Today (1902, 1914), pp. 606-608, says:

      “The Hebrew word, Palmoni, is a contracted word. It contains the elements of two Hebrew words. One isPele, and the other Man-na. The Hebrew word, Pele, means wonderful. See Isaiah 9: 6. The word Man-na, means numbered.  See Daniel 5: 25, 26. So this contracted word Palmoni, literally means Wonderful Numberer. This Wonderful Numberer is none other than the Lord Jesus Christ.  See Isaiah 9: 6.”   Read more
