Four (-th), Fourteen (-th), Four Hundred:

"four," is not found in the NT outside the Gospels, the Acts and Apocalypse; in the last it is very frequent. Tetartos, "fourth," is found in Mat 14:25; Mar 6:48 and seven times in the Apocalypse; also in Act 10:30, "four days ago," lit., "from a fourth day." Dekatessares, "fourteen" (lit., "ten-four"), is found in Mat 1:17; 2Cr 12:2; Gal 2:1; tessareskaidekatos, "fourteenth" (lit., "four-and-tenth"), Act 27:27, 33; tetrakosia, "four hundred," Act 5:36; 7:6; 13:20; Gal 3:17. In Act 7:6 the 400 years refers to Abraham's descendants and to the sojourning and the bondage. This agrees with Gen 15:13. In Exd 12:40 the 430 years dates from the call of Abraham himself. Likewise the giving of the Law was 430 years from the promise in Gen 12:3, which agrees with Gal 3:17. In Jhn 11:39 tetartaios, lit., "a fourth day (one)," is rendered "four days."


The Blue Letter Bible ministry and the BLB Institute hold to the historical, conservative Christian faith, which includes a firm belief in the inerrancy of Scripture. Since the text and audio content provided by BLB represent a range of evangelical traditions, all of the ideas and principles conveyed in the resource materials are not necessarily affirmed, in total, by this ministry.
