Number Seven. [Newspaper Article] — Riverina Recorder — 9 February 1887

Number Seven. The frequent reourrence of tho number seven in the scriptures seems to indicate that there are associated with it certain events, that it may be termed the prophetic, representative symbolic number consecrated in tbe Holy Scriplures and the religion of the Jews and other nations, by many mysterious events and circumstances. The Old Testament informs us that God completed tbe work of creation in seven days and set apart tbe seventh day to be a day of rest for all mankind. Theslayer of Abel was to be punished seven fold and the slayer of Lamcch seventy and seven folu. Of every clean beast Noah took into the ark by sevens and took with him seven souls when ho entered tho ark. After seven days the watei'3 were upon the face of the earth. The intervals between sending out the dove the second and third times were seven days, and in tho seventh month tho ark rested on the mountains of Ararat. In Pharoah's two dreams he saw seven well favored and fat kine and seven ears of cor...
