The significance of 40 and 50

This is nothing clever. Any simple Bible search will reveal this and more. Most believers know the most significant instances but itís quite surprising in how many places they turn up. Itís also interesting to see how 40 is often associated with some judgement while 50 is associated with grace and mercy.

Here are instances of 40 and in some places 80. You donít have to be clever, just do word search. This skips some references to ďforty thousandĒ and forty in references to measurements...


Here are just some instances where 50 and multiples of 50 occur.
