The Meaning of Numbers: The Number 152
The possible meaning of the number 152 is derived from the occurrence of certain Hebrew and Greek words.
The Bible reports the ages when the first nine out of ten men in Jesus' lineage (except for Adam) produced their firstborn son (Genesis 5). The average age when these nine men had their first son was roughly 158. If we assume Adam was 100 when Cain was born (he was 130 when he produced Seth after Cain slew Abel, Genesis 5:3), then the average age goes down to around 152.
The Hebrew word kasah, Strong's #H3680, occurs 152 times in the Old Testament's original language. It can mean to conceal, cover or hide something or someone. Its first use is in Genesis 7 when it describes the extent the floodwaters covered the earth during the time of Noah.
And the waters prevailed exceedingly upon the earth; and all the high hills, that were under the whole heaven, were covered (kasah, Genesis 7:19, KJV).
Appearances of Number One Hundred Fifty Two
The Greek amen, Strong's #G281, is recorded 152 times in the New Testament's original language. John's gospel uses it the most (51 times) followed by Matthew's writing (32 times). It was commonly used as an affirmation that what was said was true and trustworthy. In the King James it is translated as "verily" or "amen."
For verily (amen) I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled (Matthew 5:18, KJV).
And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. Amen (amen, Matthew 6:13, KJV).
Entry 152 in Strong Concordance's Greek Definitions is aischune. It is found only once in Luke's gospel and in the books of 2Corinthians, Philippians, Hebrews, Jude and Revelation. The word means shame, disgrace or dishonesty.
I (Jesus) counsel thee (the church at Laodicea) to buy of me gold tried in the fire, that thou mayest be rich; and white raiment, that thou mayest be clothed, and that the shame (aischune) of thy nakedness do not appear; and anoint thine eyes with eyesalve, that thou mayest see (Revelation 3:18, KJV).
Number 152 and Child Sacrifices
Entry 152 in Strong Concordance's Hebrew Definitions is adrammelek. It occurs only three times in Scripture and means "the splendor of the king." The King James translates it as Adrammelech, the name of one of Assyrian King Sennacherib's two sons who murdered him after he suffered the worst military defeat in human history (see 2Kings 18 - 19, Isaiah 37:33 - 38).
Adrammelech is also the name of an Assyrian false god, one of many worshipped by the pagan people who replaced the Israelites in Samaria after they were conquered by the Assyrians. One of the incredibly evil religious rites required to worship this deity was the sacrificing of children by fire!
And the Avites made Nibhaz and Tartak, and the Sepharvites burnt their children in fire to Adrammelech (adrammelek) and Anammelech, the gods of Sepharvaim (2Kings 17:31, KJV).
