Sixty, Sixtyfold - Vine's Expository Dictionary of New Testament Words

Sixty, Sixtyfold

[ 1,,G1835, hexekonta ]
occurs in Matthew 13:8, RV (AV, sixty-fold"); Matthew 13:23; Mark 4:8, where the RV and AV reverse the translation, as in Matthew 13:8, while in Mark 4:20 the RV has "sixtyfold," AV, "sixty;" in Revelation 13:18, RV, "sixty" (AV, "threescore"). It is rendered "threescore" in Luke 24:13; 1 Timothy 5:9; Revelation 11:3; Revelation 12:6.

Note: In Revelation 13:18, the number of the "Beast," the human potentate destined to rule with satanic power the ten-kingdom league at the end of this age, is given as "six hundred and sixty and six" (RV), and described as "the number of
(a) man." The number is suggestive of the acme of the pride of fallen man, the fullest development of man under direct satanic control, and standing in contrast to "seven" as the number of completeness and perfection.
