Continuing from the book "The Arithmetic of God" by Don
Kistler we read:
" ELEVEN is the number for JUDGMENT. Judgment follows after
a broken law and TEN signifies the law.
There were ELEVEN judgments on Egypt in the days of Moses
and Aaron......The judgments and their locations are: the plague
of blood, Ex.7:9-21; the plague of frogs, Exodus 8:1-7; the
plague of lice, Exodus 8:16-17; the plague of boils, and blain,
Exodus 9:8-11; the plague of hail, Exodus 9:22-25; the plague
of locusts, Exodus 10:12-25; the plague of darkness, Exodus 10:
21-23; the death of the firstborn, Exodus 12:29-30; the
overthrow at the Red Sea, Exodus 14:24-28.
The JUDGMENT of the FLOOD came upon the world in the 11th
GENERATION. The generations are Adam, Seth, Enos, Cainan,
Mahalaleel, Jared, Enoch, Methuselah, Lamech, Noah and his sons,
Shem, Ham, and Japheth (Genesis 5:1-31).
Noah's sons were born before the flood making them the last
generation on the earth.
Noah pronounced JUDGMENT upon Canaan.....Genesis 9:20-25.
Canaan, upon whom this judgment was pronounced, had 11
SONS.....Genesis 10: 15-18)......Was it accidental that the 11th
one was named after Ham....?
God pronounced JUDGMENT and complete destruction on the
house of Esau because of their unkind treatment of the people
towards the children of Israel (Obadiah 1:8-18). In Genesis
36:40-43, there is found the names of the 11 DUKES in the family
In Numbers 15: 32-35, there is a record of a man who brought
JUDGMENT upon himself by breaking the law of the Sabbath.....The
Sabbath day was the SEVENTH DAY of the week. The commandment
concerning the Sabbath was the FOURTH commandment. When the
number 7 and 4 are added together they TOTAL 11, for the JUDGMENT
that man brought upon himself by breaking the law of the Sabbath.
At Kadesh, sometimes called Kadesh-Barnea, the Israelites
brought JUDGMENT upon themselves by refusing to go up and possess
the promised land (Numbers 13:25; 14:1-34). They were turned back
to wander 40 years in the wilderness. Deuteronomy 1:2 states,
'There are ELEVEN days' journey from Horeb by the way of Mount
Seir unto Kadesh-barnea.' These 11 days of journey brought Israel
to the place of JUDGMENT.
Isaiah foretold the JUDGMENT that would come unto Judah by
naming 11 different kinds of men......Isaiah 3:1-3.
This judgment which Isaiah foretold came in the 11th year of
the reign of Zedekiah, the last king of Judah......Jeremiah
Dinah was the 11th child born unto Jacob, and her name means
JUDGMENT (Genesis 20:32; 30:21).
In Ezekiel 26:1-14 the prophet Ezekiel, in the 11th year of
his prophecy, foretold the JUDGMENT that would come on Tyrus.....
In Jude, verses 14 and 15, JUDGMENT again is connected with
11......The word 'ungodly' is found FOUR times. Enoch, which did
the prophesying, was the SEVENTH from Adam, and when four is
added to seven the sum is 11, the number for JUDGMENT which Enoch
Noah's JUDGMENT (Hebrews 11:7) tells that in preparing the
ark Noah condemned the world. God gave to Noah the instructions
of how to build the ark, 'Thus did Noah; according to all that
God commanded him, so did he' (Genesis 6:22). The name of Noah
occurs the 11th time in this place and this again connects number
11 with JUDGMENT.
More than 50 passages can be found in the New Testament
where just 11 Greek words or 11 Greek letters are connected with
Following are THREE examples:
John 3:18.....in the original Greek, there are exactly 11
Greek letters.....'Already hath been judged'....They are 'ADA
KEKRIT AI.' The 11 Greek words are the reason, why the
unbeliever has already been judged.
James 3:1, 'My brethren, be not many masters, knowing that
we shall receive the greater condemnation.' This statement has 11
Greek words. The two Greek words for the greater judgment (here
again the word 'judgment' is used from the original Greek) have
11 Greek letters.
At the beginning of the discussion of number 11 there is
shown 11 JUDGMENTS on Egypt, and the 11th was the overthrow at
the Red Sea. In Hebrews 11:29 we read, 'By faith they passed
through the Red sea as by dry land; which the Egyptians assaying
to do were drowned.'
In the words 'were drowned' there are exactly 11 Greek
letters. So the JUDGMENT, number 11, that came on Egypt is
spelled with 11 Greek letters, and 11 is the number for JUDGMENT.
This concludes number 11. There are numerous other passages
in both the Old and New Testaments proving number 11 as JUDGMENT,
but this should suffice as the best general summarization.
