Numbers 2.4 – Incidental numbering of Judah’s army at 74,600

Speaking of the size of the army of the tribe of Judah that Nahshon had to lead, the Bible says,

“And his army was numbered at seventy-four thousand six hundred” (Numbers 2.4). 

Again, this appears to be an incidental use of the number seven.
