We've seen biblical references in previous numbers that turned out to be clues. Anyone know if a 10:8 exists?


There could be a ton of 10:8's...... Hrmm... Guess I'll have to bust out a bible or something and look some things up...

Edit: Yeah. This is going to take a while... Lots of number matches...

Edit 2: Okay, here's anything that remotely stood out to me...

Nehemiah 10

8 Maaziah, Bilgai and Shemaiah.
These were the priests.


Job 10

8 "Your hands shaped me and made me.
Will you now turn and destroy me?


Psalm 10

8 He lies in wait near the villages;
from ambush he murders the innocent,
watching in secret for his victims.


Ezekiel 10

8 (Under the wings of the cherubim could be seen what looked like the hands of a man.)


Daniel 10

8 So I was left alone, gazing at this great vision; I had no strength left, my face turned deathly pale and I was helpless.


Zechariah 10

8 I will signal for them
and gather them in.
Surely I will redeem them;
they will be as numerous as before.

I used this web site to find all of this.

Edit again: I was also using the "New International Version" on the site, so if anyone wants to see if there are any differences between these and the other versions, feel free to try :D

Look at the second and last quotes you found, those definately have an air of Halo lore about them.

Genesis 7 wrote:

1 The LORD then said to Noah, "Go into the ark, you and your whole family, because I have found you righteous in this generation. 2 Take with you seven [a] of every kind of clean animal, a male and its mate, and two of every kind of unclean animal, a male and its mate, 3 and also seven of every kind of bird, male and female, to keep their various kinds alive throughout the earth. 4 Seven days from now I will send rain on the earth for forty days and forty nights, and I will wipe from the face of the earth every living creature I have made."

5 And Noah did all that the LORD commanded him.

6 Noah was six hundred years old when the floodwaters came on the earth. 7 And Noah and his sons and his wife and his sons' wives entered the ark to escape the waters of the flood. 8 Pairs of clean and unclean animals, of birds and of all creatures that move along the ground, 9 male and female, came to Noah and entered the ark, as God had commanded Noah. 10 And after the seven days the floodwaters came on the earth.

11 In the six hundredth year of Noah's life, on the seventeenth day of the second month—on that day all the springs of the great deep burst forth, and the floodgates of the heavens were opened. 12 And rain fell on the earth forty days and forty nights.

13 On that very day Noah and his sons, Shem, Ham and Japheth, together with his wife and the wives of his three sons, entered the ark. 14 They had with them every wild animal according to its kind, all livestock according to their kinds, every creature that moves along the ground according to its kind and every bird according to its kind, everything with wings. 15 Pairs of all creatures that have the breath of life in them came to Noah and entered the ark. 16 The animals going in were male and female of every living thing, as God had commanded Noah. Then the LORD shut him in.

17 For forty days the flood kept coming on the earth, and as the waters increased they lifted the ark high above the earth. 18 The waters rose and increased greatly on the earth, and the ark floated on the surface of the water. 19 They rose greatly on the earth, and all the high mountains under the entire heavens were covered. 20 The waters rose and covered the mountains to a depth of more than twenty feet. [b] , [c] 21 Every living thing that moved on the earth perished—birds, livestock, wild animals, all the creatures that swarm over the earth, and all mankind. 22 Everything on dry land that had the breath of life in its nostrils died. 23 Every living thing on the face of the earth was wiped out; men and animals and the creatures that move along the ground and the birds of the air were wiped from the earth. Only Noah was left, and those with him in the ark.

24 The waters flooded the earth for a hundred and fifty days.


I shrunk the text a bit so it wouldn't take up so much space. This was all taken from the same web site I referenced above.

i heard somewhere bungie didnt do the bible thing... but to add to your quote:
Genesis 6:15:
"And this is how you will make it: three hundred cubits the length of the ark, fifty cubits its width, and thirty cubits its height." -thats out of a bible i found in my laundry room hah.

in feet that comes to "450 feet long, 75 feet wide and 45 feet high" by some guys calculations i found here: http://www.biblestudy.org/basicart/sizeark.html and... im too lazy to put it into meters :P i dont think it means anything personally though. but i looked it up earlier today to see if there was anything interesting in the numbering.

8 I will signal for them
and gather them in.
Surely I will redeem them;
they will be as numerous as before.


Sounds more significant than the others.

Or we are grasping at straws.

Let's play with this one for a moment...

"I will signal for them
and gather them in."

Sounds simple enough, and obviously related--someone gathering forces, be it Flood (Gravemind) or the Covenant (who's in charge there now, anyway? ;) ).

"Surely I will redeem them:"
Hmmm...awfully similiar to "reclaim" is "redeem," yes? But:
"They will be as numerous as before"
This sounds like it'd be Flood-oriented if it's related at all.
But who would want to "redeem" and make "as numerous as before" the Flood?
Maybe the Forerunners? :shock:

*sips rum and Coke through straw* :geek:

Wow, 108 is the total of the numbers on Lost. ! That black cloud thing must be a Forerunner! :ugeek:

Seriously, Wikipedia has the answer to everything, let's use this as a home base to research. Hmmm, there are 108 free polyominoes of order 7.
