Sixty, Sixtyfold:

occurs in Mat 13:8, RV (AV, "sixty-fold"); Mat 13:23; Mar 4:8, where the RV and AV reverse the translation, as in Mat 13:8, while in Mar 4:20 the RV has "sixtyfold," AV, "sixty;" in Rev 13:18, RV, "sixty" (AV, "threescore"). It is rendered "threescore" in Luk 24:13; 1Ti 5:9; Rev 11:3; 12:6.

Note: In Rev 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.
