Meaning of Numbers: The Number 212
The possible meaning of the number 212 is derived from the occurrence of words both in the original languages of Scripture and in their English translations.
The English word "wine" appears 231 times, in 212 verses, in the King James translation. It is found the most in the book of Isaiah (21 times) followed by Jeremiah (16). The use of the word in Scripture clearly indicates it is referencing a drink made from fermented grapes with an alcohol content that can cause certain effects.
Give strong drink unto him that is ready to perish, and wine unto those that be of heavy hearts (Proverbs 31:6).
And be not drunk with wine, wherein is excess; but be filled with the Spirit (Ephesians 5:18).

Genesis 2:12 (212) is one of the first two places in the Bible where gold is mentioned. According to Genesis, a high quality version of the precious metal was located in the land of Havilah. While, given the context, this land was near Eden, Biblical commentaries differ regarding a possible more precise location.
The name of the first is Pison: that is it which compasseth the whole land of Havilah, where there is gold; And the gold of that land is good: there is bdellium and the onyx stone (Genesis 2:11 - 12, KJV).

The word usually means to have affection toward others such as one's family, friends or potential mate. It can also reference sexual love, the love humans have toward God or God's love toward individuals or groups.
And Jacob loved (ahab) Rachel; and said, I will serve thee (Laban) seven years for Rachel thy younger daughter (Genesis 29:18, KJV).
I have loved (ahab) you, saith the Lord. Yet ye (Israel) say, Wherein hast thou loved us? Was not Esau Jacob's brother? saith the Lord: yet I loved (ahab) Jacob (Malachi 1:2, KJV).
