Meaning of Numbers: The Number 106
The possible meaning of the number 106 is derived from the appearance of certain words in Scripture.
The first Hebrew word defined by Strong's Concordance is ab (Strong's #H1). It is utilized to designate a father in a literal or figurative sense. Its first use in the King James Version of 1Chronicles, where it is recorded 106 times in 87 verses, is in chapter two.
And Abigail bare Amasa: and the father of Amasa was Jether the Ishmeelite (1Chronicles 2:17, KJV).
The English word "Lord" is written 106 times in 97 verses of the King James translation of the gospel of Luke. The word, amazingly, is recorded 17 times alone in Luke 1 (verses 6, 9, 11, 15 - 17, 25, 28, 32, 38, 45 - 46, 58, 66, 68 and 76) and 12 times in the second chapter!
And they (Zacharias and Elizabeth, the parents of John the Baptist) were both righteous before God, walking in all the commandments and ordinances of the Lord blameless (Luke 1:6, KJV).
And, lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of the Lord shone round about them: and they were sore afraid (Luke 2:9, KJV).
Appearances of Number One Hundred Six
The English word "alone" appears 108 times in 106 King James Bible verses. It is written the most in both Job and John (11 times each) followed by Isaiah (9). Its first recorded use takes place when, after God created man, he determined his greatest creation needed a helper.
And the Lord God said, It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him an help meet for him . . . And the rib, which the Lord God had taken from man, made he a woman, and brought her unto the man (Genesis 2:18, 22, KJV).
The Hebrew word halak, Strong's #H1980, appears 122 times in 106 verses of the original language version of 1Kings. The word means to walk, to come, to go or to travel from one place to another. Its first use is related to Nathan the prophet and Bathsheba's plan to thwart David's son Adonijah usurping Israel's throne which David had promised to Solomon (1Kings 1:13).
Wherefore Nathan spake unto Bathsheba the mother of Solomon, saying, Hast thou not heard that Adonijah the son of Haggith doth reign, and David our lord knoweth it not?
Now therefore come (halak), let me, I pray thee, give thee counsel, that thou mayest save thine own life, and the life of thy son Solomon (1Kings 1:11 - 12, KJV).
The English word "God" appears in 106 verses in the New Testament's seven general epistles (James, 1 and 2Peter, 1, 2, and 3John, Jude) found in the King James Bible. The word's first mention in this group of books is in James' greeting to his readers.
James, a servant of God and of the Lord Jesus Christ, to the twelve tribes which are scattered abroad, greeting (James 1:1, KJV).
Number 106 and the Psalms
Psalm 106, as well as seventeen other songs (Psalms 105, 107, 111 to 118, 135, 136 and 146 to 150), are called the Hallelujah Psalms. They were sung at the temple in Jerusalem and in synagogues, and were specially used during God's annual Feast days.
Psalm 106 ends the fourth of the five common divisions of the book of Psalms. These divisions are Psalm 1 to 41, 42 to 72, 73 to 89, 90 to 106 and 107 to 150.
Verse 22 of this Psalm confirms that Ham, the youngest son of Noah, migrated to Egypt. It was him and his descendants that populated the country.
They (ancient Israelites) forgot God their Savior, Who had done great things in Egypt, wondrous works in the land of Ham, and awesome things by the Red Sea (verses 21 - 22 of Psalm 106, HBFV).

The English word "devils" is found in only four places in the King James Old Testament. Two of these locations, Leviticus 17:7 and 2Chronicles 11:15, derive this word from the Hebrew saiyr (Strong's #H8163).
The Hebrew word saiyr refers to a he goat or a creature who is hairy and rough (with illusions to the mythical beast called a satyr). The word "devils," however, in Deuteronomy 32:17 and the 37th verse of Psalm 106 come from the Hebrew daemon (Strong's #H7700) meaning a malignant spirit or demon.
Yea, they sacrificed their sons and their daughters unto devils (daemon, verse 37 of Psalm 106, KJV).
