Meaning of Numbers: The Number 145

The English phrase "hundred and forty and five," used for the number 145, is not recorded in the King James Bible.

The possible meaning of the number 145 in the Bible is derived primarily from the book of Psalms.

The first chapter of Mark contains exactly 45 verses (145). After Jesus heals a man with leprosy, in one of his first miracles, he warns him not to spread the news of his healing. The man's feelings, however, override his obedience to the Lord and he publishes the news of his healing far and wide. This act causes Christ a great deal of inconvenience.

But after leaving, he (the man healed of leprosy) began to proclaim it extensively and to spread the matter abroad, so that He (Jesus) was no longer able to enter the city openly, but stayed outside the city in desert places; and they came to Him from every region (Mark 1:45, HBFV).

Appearances of Number One Hundred Forty Five

God commanded ancient Israel to keep a Sabbatical year, also known as the land sabbath (Leviticus 25:2 - 6) or year of release (Deuteronomy 31:10). This year was the seventh in every seven-year cycle. It began (likely) on Tishri 1 on the Hebrew calendar (Feast of Trumpets aka Rosh Hashanah).

A Sabbatical year began on September 15 in 144 A.D. This special year ended on September 5 in 145 A.D.

The Hebrew word yoab, Strong's Concordance #H3097, is recorded 145 times in 124 Hebrew Old Testament verses. It is written the most in 2Samuel (101 times) followed by 1Chronicles (24) and then 1Kings (15).

Yoab means "Jehovah-fathered" or "Jehovah is father" and is commonly translated, in the King James, as the name Joab.

At least three people in Scripture are named Joab. The most well known of these men was Joab, a nephew of King David's (1Chronicles 2:16), who was made commander-in-chief over Israel's army (2Samuel 8:16, 20:23). Joab would help David conquer Jebus (Jerusalem) and secure his throne over all of ancient Israel.

And David and all Israel went to Jerusalem, which is Jebus; where the Jebusites were, the inhabitants of the land.

And David said, Whosoever smiteth the Jebusites first shall be chief and captain. So Joab the son of Zeruiah went first up, and was chief (1Chronicles 11:4, 6, KJV).

And Joab the son of Zeruiah was over the host; and Jehoshaphat the son of Ahilud was recorder (2Samuel 8:16, KJV).

The English word "forty" is recorded 158 in 145 King James verses. It is listed the most in the book of Number (19) followed by both Genesis and Deuteronomy with 15 occurrences each. 23 of the 145 verses "forty" is found in are located in the New Testament.

And Moses went into the midst of the cloud, and gat him up into the mount: and Moses was in the mount forty days and forty nights (Exodus 24:18, KJV).

And he (Jesus) was there in the wilderness forty days, tempted of Satan; and was with the wild beasts; and the angels ministered unto him (Mark 1:13, KJV).

Number 145 and the Psalms

An important Biblical verse that refutes the notion that 100% of humanity will receive salvation is found in Psalm 145.

The Lord watches over all who love Him, but all the wicked He will destroy (Psalm 145:20, HBFV).

Psalm 145 also contains several comforting and encouraging verses that are especially helpful in a time of need.

The Lord is gracious and full of compassion; slow to anger and abounding in steadfast love. The Lord is good to all, and His tender mercies are over all His works . . .

The Lord upholds all who fall and raises up all who are bowed down . . .

The Lord is righteous in all His ways and loving in all His works. The Lord is near unto all who call upon Him, unto all who call upon Him in truth. He will fulfill the desire of those who fear Him; He also will hear their cry, and will save them. The Lord watches over all who love Him . . . (Verses 8, 9, 14, 17 - 20 of Psalm 145, HBFV).

The English word "beasts" is listed 156 times in 145 King James Bible verses. It is written the most in the prophetic books of Ezekiel and Revelation (15 times each) followed by Daniel (14). 28 of the 145 verses "beasts" is found in are located in the New Testament.

Of every clean beast thou (Noah) shalt take to thee by sevens, the male and his female: and of beasts that are not clean by two, the male and his female (Genesis 7:2, KJV).

And when he had opened the second seal, I heard the second beast say, Come and see (Revelation 6:3, KJV).

The English word "heathen" appears 150 times in 145 King James verses. It is written the most in Ezekiel (46) followed by the Psalms (38) and then Jeremiah (7).

The term "heathen" is roughly the same as the term "gentiles." In the Old Testament it was generally used to refer to those who were not Israelites. In the New Testament, however, especially amongst the Jews, it referred to those who were not Jewish.

But I will for their sakes remember the covenant of their ancestors, whom I brought forth out of the land of Egypt in the sight of the heathen, that I might be their God: I am the Lord (Leviticus 26:45, KJV).

And when James, Cephas, and John, who seemed to be pillars, perceived the grace that was given unto me (Apostle Paul), they gave to me and Barnabas the right hands of fellowship; that we should go unto the heathen, and they unto the circumcision (Galatians 2:9, KJV).
