The Meaning of Numbers: The Number 34

Part of the meaning of the number 34 may be related to the naming of a son. The 34th time Abraham's name is recorded in Scripture is when he named his first and only son, through Sarah, Isaac (Genesis 21:3).

Leah (Jacob's first wife) is one of the most referenced females in Scripture. Her name is recorded 34 times.

Of the top ten largest books in the entirety of Scripture, eighth ranked Deuteronomy has thirty-four chapters, 959 verses and 28,461 words (KJV Bible). The longest book is Psalms with 150 chapters.

Appearances of the number thirty-four

The 34th person in Jesus' physical lineage is King Solomon of Israel. Solomon, the last monarch over a united Israel, reigned for 40 years until his death in 930 B.C.

The patriarch Eber's first son, Peleg, is born when he is 34 years old (Genesis 11:16). It is likely, during Peleg's lifetime, that land bridges between the major continents were covered by melting ice water trapped during Noah's flood (Genesis 10:25, see also our article on the separation of continents). Such great volumes of water would make travel to different parts of the globe, via land, impossible.

Fibonacci and the number 34

The number 34 might derive part of its symbolism from being the tenth numeric in a unique series known as the Fibonacci sequence.

Fibonacci numbers are named after Italian mathematician Leonardo of Pisa (who was later known as Fibonacci). His sequence was introduced to Western Europe in 1202 A.D.

A Fibonacci sequence is a number set where each of them is the sum of the previous two in the list. The sequence begins with 0, 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, 34, 55, 89, etc. This sequence, used in some computer algorithms, also appears in God's creation. It has been observed that the arrangement of leaves on certain stems, the distribution of fruit sprouts of a pineapple, and so on follows a Fibonacci pattern.

Additional info on the Biblical Meaning of 34

Paul, around the spring of 33 A.D., becomes converted after God miraculously appears to him on his way to Damascus (Acts 9:3 - 18). It does not take him long, however, to begin powerfully testifying in the local synagogues that Jesus is the promised Messiah. The Jews, who hate his message, begin to plot his death. The apostle narrowly escapes the city and travels to Arabia. The year 34 A.D. marks the end of his first year of being taught directly by Jesus Christ (Galatians 1:11 - 12, 15 - 18).
