A score means 20, just like a dozen means 12. ANSWER This is found in Numbers 1:27 "Those that were numbered of them, even of the tribe of Judah, were threescore and fourteen thousand and six hundred." One score is 20 as the above answerer has stated. The "and's" in the equation simply mean to add them together. threescore (20x3) and (+) 14,000 and (+) 600. This would be a total of = 74,600 total men from 20 years of age and up that were counted able to go to war, from the tribe of Judah.

For those of you that are confused, remember that the Bible was translated from another language. Some languages use addition when expressing numbers (french: 70=60+10). So when the scripture says, "...threescore and fourteen thousand" (60,000+14,000).

I got 14,660 help me to figure this one out.

Lvl 1

If threescore is 60 why isnt the answer 14,660? 20x3 =60 and (+) 14,000 and (+) 600 = 14660?

Lvl 1

Thank you so much I was trying to just put the 60 in front of the 14 instead of adding them together.

Three score means to multiply by 20's three times only if the next number is in the tens. If the following numbers are in the thousands then you multiply 20 thousands. So three score and 17 =77. Three score and 14,000 means (20,000 x 3) + 14,000....)

Lvl 1

Since in the verse it says threescore and 14 thousand it means add threescore thousand or 60 thousand and 14 thousand which is 74 thousand then you add 600 witch equals 74,600

Threescore means (20x3), and means add so

20x3=60 and 14,000 and 600 would look like

(20x3) + 14,000 + 600= 14660.

where is 74,600 coming from?

The term "threescore" literally means three times 20 (which is a "score" in old English). So it actually means 1260 days. This means it is 3 1/2 years of 360 days (or a prophetic year) for each year.

In the Bible, threescore and fifteen years means twenty times three plus fifteen. A score was twenty so threescore was sixty plus fifteen, which is 85.

Psalm 90:The days of our years are threescore years and ten;and if by reason of strength they be fourscore years,yet is their strength labor and sorrow;for it is soon cut off, and we fly away.Since a score is 20, threescore and ten means 70; fourscore is 80.

I want to know where in the Bible it tells of how many years a person is guaranteed. I believe it is threescore and ten but I think there are several references to that answer.
