Here is what I have written in my scriptures from my seminary days:

Number Scriptural Symbolism
1 God, Genesis, beginning
2 Christ, opposition, deliverance
3 Holy Ghost, Godhead, solid, divine protection
4 Earth (North, South, East, and West; 4 elements; divisions of day; seasons, and etc)
5 Grace (4+1)
6 Man’s imperfection (6 times, Savior is charged with having a devil inside, serpent in Hebrew has 6 names)
7 Oath, spiritual perfection
8 Abundance, Covenant, beginning, new
9 Judgment
10 The Law, Order (10 Commandments)
11 Discord, disorder (12-1)
12 Priesthood authority, governmental perfection (quorum of 12 holds all Priesthood keys)
20 Expectancy (i.e. 20 years Jacob waited to get wives and payment)
30 The right moment
40 Probation, trial, renewal (40 days ark)
200 Insufficiencies

    Nary a mention of 70? What kind of a website is this anyway?

    @Woodrow: I would love to add the symbolism of 70 if you have it. This website is a personal blog (at least at the moment), I have never purported to be an export. I just thought I would share what was in my seminary scriptures.
