Bible scholar E.W. Bullinger (1837-1913) wriote that God's numbers are perfect

Today people ignore and even fear the study of the Bible's numbers, but scholars of the past have told us God placed meaning in every number -- much of what I write about has been commented on before...

  •  E.W. Bullinger (1837-1913), a well-known and highly regarded Bible scholar to whom the Archbishop of Canterbury awarded an honorary Doctor of Divinity in 1881, wrote in his book Number in Scripture,  
We can have neither words nor works without “number.” The question which we have to answer is—Is number used with design or by chance? Surely if God uses it, it must be with infinite wisdom and with glorious perfection. And so it is. Each number has its own significance; and its meaning is found to be in moral harmony and relation to the subject matter in connection with which it stands. This harmony is always perfect. Every word of God’s Book is in its right place. It may sometimes seem to us to be deranged. The lock may be in one place, and the key may sometimes be hidden away elsewhere in some apparently inadvertent word or sentence
