Meaning of Numbers: The Number 210
The possible meaning of the number 210 is derived from the occurrence of certain words in the Bible's original languages.
The Greek word thelo (Strong's #G2309) is recorded 210 times in the original language of the New Testament. It is written the most in the book of Matthew (42 times) followed by Luke (28) and then Mark (25). The word means to intend, to have in mind, to will or desire that something take place.
Then Joseph her husband, being a just man, and not willing (thelo) to make her (Mary) a public example, was minded to put her away (divorce her) privily (Matthew 1:19, KJV).
Appearances of Number Two Hundred Ten
Unfortunately, Scripture does not tell us how old Job was when his trials ended and God richly blessed him. We do know that God gave him an additional 140 years of life after he repented of his self-righteousness (Job 42:16). Based on the principle that God blessed him with double the wealth he once had (Job 42:10), he may have been blessed, at age 70, to live an additional double of the years he had lived. If this was the case then the patriarch lived to be 210 years old.
The Hebrew shakab (Strong's Concordance #H7901) is recorded 210 times in the original language of the Old Testament. It is written the most in Genesis and 1Kings (21 times each) followed by 2Kings (19).
The word shakab means to lie down either to rest or to have sexual intercourse. One of its first uses occurs when Lot's two daughters, thinking few men were alive after Sodom's destruction, conspire to get him drunk and have him impregnant them to continue the family.
Come, let us make our father drink wine, and we will lie (shakab) with him, that we may preserve seed of our father (Genesis 19:32, KJV).
The Greek word dunamai (Strong's #G1410) is recorded 210 times in the Greek version of the New Testament. It is found the most in the gospel of John (37 times) followed by Mark (33) and then Matthew (27). The word refers to something that could, might or possibly take place. It can also reference the power or ability to do something. John the Baptist uses the word to criticize Jewish religious leaders who have come to where he is baptizing people unto repentance.
And think not to say within yourselves, We have Abraham to our father: for I say unto you, that God is able (dunamai) of these stones to raise up children unto Abraham (Matthew 3:9, KJV).
Number 210 and Offerings to God
The English word "offerings" appears 265 times, in 210 verses, in the King James Bible. Unsurprisingly, it is written the most in the book of Leviticus (44 times) then the book of Numbers (40) followed by 2Chronicles (37). The use of the word is tied to certain offerings made to God in the Old Testament which the New Covenant abolishes.
The four main types of sacrifices made to God were burnt, sin, trespass and peace offerings (Leviticus 1, 3, 5 - 7). This first offering specifically called such in Scripture took place after Noah left the ark.
And Noah builded an altar unto the Lord; and took of every clean beast, and of every clean fowl, and offered burnt offerings on the altar (Genesis 8:20, KJV).
