Bible sevens can be literal or allegoric mystery to solve. Of sevens in the Bible, seven days can be just another week of even-ing and mourn-ing for the host of them vs them prepared for war (is good for nothing, and friend only to the under-taker), or 1 day can allegorically be as a 1000 years and a 1000 years can allegorically be as 1 day. Converted Paul of Saul-->Paul, who writes more New Testament writings than all six other New Testament writers combined, tells us (mystery is made known to us, of them/us) the Bible is all allegory in both "covenants": Galatians 4; And what the script-u-are (of plural and contrary scriptures written aforetime for our learning) saith is: "cast out the bondwoman and her son". Allegory: flush law and result of law: sin and death. Converted Peter, who got converted by reading all Paul's epistles, also tells us to be not ignorant of this one thing: that one day [is] with the Lord as a thousand years and a thousand years as one day: 2Peter 3:8. Psalmist David, who is notably not ascended into the (plural) heavens, tells us: a thousand years in thy sight [are but] as yesterday when it is past, and [as] a watch in the night: Psalms 90:4.

The Seven New Testament Writers
                    1. Matthew (aka publican Levi, upbraided hung jury apostle, writes 1, to lay the foundation)
                    2. John (whose surname is Mark, and whose gospel account is "verily verily", writes 5)
                    3. Luke (had perfect understanding, writes 2, to Theophilus, to set things believed in order)
                    4. Paul (writes 15 of 27: over 50%; 12 of 15 epistles title him as "The Apostle") - midst
                    5. James (clarifier of two religions and two wisdoms, writes 1, to 12 tribes scattered abroad)
                    6. Peter (formerly called "Satan", writes 2, to finally strengthen his scatter brained brethren)
                    7. Jude (writes 1, to re-mind us saved + destroyed afterward by grace + law didn't end well)
                         Note: six writers combined write 12 of 27, but Paul writes 15 of 27; more than all six combined.

The Seven Days of Genesis
                            1. And the evening and the morning were the first day
                            2. And the evening and the morning were the second day
                            3. And the evening and the morning were the third day
                            4. And the evening and the morning were the fourth day
                            5. And the evening and the morning were the fifth day
                            6. And the evening and the morning were the sixth day
                            7. And on the seventh day God ended, blessed, and sanctified
                            Note: the seventh day has no mention of evening and morning, as six other days do.
                                   After the sixth day, prior to the seventh day, (plural) heavens and earth were finished.

What God saw, seven times, in Genesis 1
                                        1. good (not both good and evil)
                                        2. good (not both good and evil)
                                        3. good
(not both good and evil)
                                        4. good (not both good and evil)
                                        5. good (not both good and evil)
                                        6. good (not both good and evil)
                                        7. very good (every thing he made was exceedingly good)

Seven Things Can Count as Nothing Without Charity: 1Corinthians 13
            1. speak with tongues of men and angels (nothing but sounding brass & tinkling cymbal)
            2. have [the gift of] prophecy (you are nothing)
            3. understand all mysteries (you are nothing)
            4. have all knowledge (you are nothing)
            5. have all faith, so as to remove mountains (you are nothing)
bestow all your goods to feed [the poor] (profits you nothing)
            7. give your body to be burned (profits you nothing)
                Note: having charity, or not having charity, is as having nothing or everything

Seven Things Converted Peter Says Add To Your Faith: 2Peter 1:6
                                                1. virtue
                                                2. knowledge
                                                3. temperance
                                                4. patience
                                                5. godliness
                                                6. brotherly kindness
                                                7. charity (seventh of seven)
                    Note: of faith --> hope --> charity, only the greatest of three things never fails nor forsakes

Biblical sevens can also be obvious or hidden sevens, some hidden as if mystery to solve. Bible scholars generally agree seventh of seven denotes completeness or perfection; Yet perhaps it's either or, not both. For on the tail side of the coin, mirrorly for comparison, the seventh of seven levels of demonic oppression can denote completeness of law to be extinction instead of salvation. Hidden sevens of such biblical sevens can also be comparatively descriptive, as two allegoric mountains in Hebrews 12 seem to bem which both seem to mention seven things; But God and Jesus are only on one of the twain mountains, the latter (Sion) seemingly better, speaking of better things God provided for us of them/us in Hebrews 11. Yet look what's in the midst if each sevenfold, if two mtns compared in Hebrews 12; And what about the "and" x7 concerning Sion?

   "Not Come": Mount Sinai (Law)               "Are Come": Mount Sion (Grace), and x7
  1. - that might be touched                        1. - the city of the living God: heavenly Jerusalem
  2. - that burned with fire                          2. - innumerable company of angels: general assembly
  3. - darkness                                           3. - church of the firstborn: written in heaven
  4. - blackness ... midst                            4. - God: the Judge of all (quick and dead)  ... midst
  5. - tempest                                             5. - the spirits of just men: made perfect
  6. - sound of a trumpet                             6. - Jesus: the mediator of the new covenant
  7. - voice of words (plural)                          7. - blood: that speaketh better things  

But let us remember there is both a stumblingstone to stumble over and fall, from grace to law and a rock of  offence to possibly off end laid in "Sion", which is not "Zion" in the Old Testament (KJV), and that Zion is not even mentioned in the New Testament (KJV). Also let us notice it is "ye" (do err) of ye/you  who are come unto mount Sion, and that it can be a fearful thing to fall into the (plural) hands of the living God in Hebrews 10:31, and fallen is from grace to law in Galatians 5:4. So perhaps there is more to consider than just being better of two things if what's greater of great/greater can also be "greater damnation", and being mediated is for disagreement rather than reconciled for agreement, especially if we're told that only what's greatest of three things is what never fails and never forsakes.

Not to mention other aspects of the seven things of the seven "ands" concerning Sion, like Sion can be only the better thing of twain Zion/Sion instead of what's best for all, and such aleph/tahv can oft be mirrorly reversed such as with/against ... justified/condemned in Mt 12:30-37's 5 either ors, or that Sion can also be thought to be Zion as many modern Bible translations deem it. Not to mention the living God can also be a fall and a fearful thing if such has plural hands: sides: parts still having partiality instead of going on unto the perfection of wholeness: oneness: allness: above: higher than heavens. Not to mention God as Judge (capital J) in the midst of such seven perhaps speaks of a Judge of both the quick and dead as in Acts 10:42's Judge (capital J); But in Mt 22:32; Mk 12:27; Lk 20:38 we're told God is NOT the God of the dead, but only the God of the living. Not to mention a mediator (Jesus) is not [the mediator] of one (God), but God is one: Galatians; Perhaps indicating reconciled is above mediated, which is to say one is not twain, but above twain. Not to mention blood that speaketh "better" things is only better of good/better/best, better of twain things instead of best of three things; As forgiven is better than unforgiven of unforgiven/forgiven, as grace is better than law of law/grace. Yet we are told charity (the "greatest" of "three" things) thinketh no evil to even forgive, and that charity never fails is put on "above" seven things like forgiving one another mentioned in Colossians 3:12-14. So then, perhaps Sion is assocaited with seven things, one being forgiving one another, which is obviously better than desiring vengeance; Yet there is also an asepct that is above such seven things, called charity never fails.

So, maybe we should even look higher than Sion of Zion/Sion if that great city, holy Jerusalem descends out of heaven rather than ascends into heaven: Revelation 21:10. Interestingly, Sion seems to have a sevenfold aspect and occurs seven times in the New Testament KJV; However, along with mention of Sion in Hebrews 12:22 we have "and" (also) x7 to consider, along with the possibility of stumbling on a stumblingstone laid in Sion or being off ended by a rock of offence.

Sevenfold Sion (?) is mentioned seven times in the New Testament:

  1. Matthew 21:5   Tell ye the daughter of Sion, Behold, thy King cometh unto thee, meek, and sitting upon an ass, and a colt the foal of an ass.
  2. John 12:15   Fear not, daughter of Sion : behold, thy King cometh, sitting on an ass's colt.
  3. Romans  9:33   As it is written, Behold, I lay in Sion a stumblingstone and rock of offence: and whosoever believeth on him shall not be ashamed.
  4. Romans 11:26   And so all Israel shall be saved: as it is written, There shall come out of Sion the Deliverer, and shall turn away ungodliness from Jacob:
  5. Hebrews 12:22   But ye are come unto mount Sion , and unto the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem, and to an innumerable company of angels, 
  6. 1 Peter 2:6   Wherefore also it is contained in the scripture, Behold, I lay in Sion a chief corner stone, elect, precious: and he that believeth on him shall not be confounded. 
  7. Revelation 14:1   And I looked, and, lo, a Lamb stood on the mount Sion, and with him an hundred forty [and] four thousand, having his Father's name written in their foreheads. 

Some Examples of Seven Times and Seventh Time

“And he (Jacob) passed over before them, and bowed himself to the ground seven times, until he came near to his brother (Essau)” (Genesis 33)

 “And the priest shall dip his finger of the blood, and sprinkle seven times before the LORD” (Leviticus 4)

 “I will chastise you seven times for your sins” (Leviticus 26)

 “And he (Elijah) said to his servant, Go up now, look toward the sea. And he went up, and looked, and said, nothing. And he said, Go again seven times. And it came to pass at the seventh time ”. (1Kings 18)

 “A just (man) falleth seven times, and riseth up again: but the wicked shall fall into mischief”. (Proverb 24)

 “Seven times a day do I praise thee because of thy righteous judgments”. (Psalm 119)

 “The words of the LORD [are] pure words; [as] silver tried in a furnace of earth, purified seven times” (Psalm 12:6)

 “Let his (Nebuchadnezzar, the Babylonian king’s) heart be changed from man’s, and let a beast’s heart be given unto him; and let seven times pass over him. This matter (is) by the decree of the watchers, and the demand by the word of the holy ones: to the intent that the living may know that the most High ruleth in the kingdom of men …” (Daniel 4)

Note: Comment About Seven Times and The Seventh Day
Seven times seems to be a matter of decree with intent of knowing who ruleth. Some perceive it allegory for a seven thousand year period they call the seven thousand year plan of God, based on "a thousand years [is] as one day" (Psalms 90:4 / 2Peter 3:8). However, the same people seem to overlook the entire Bible is "allegory" in both "covenants": Galatians 4; And the seventh day of Genesis 2 has no mention of both "evening and morning" (as six days of Genesis 1 do have); Which is allegory for God and the day(light) of God: the seventh day, do not have both darkness(law) and light(grace). Also the 1,000 years mentioned in Revelation 20 is perhaps 1 day in Acts 12: Easter. For Peter says be not ignorant of this: 1,000 yrs as 1 day AND 1 day as 1000 yrs. The prophetic "third day" is the seventh day, and the seventh day is not another millennium as many presume it to be by they sayers who say it is by saying things like the third millennium for beyond 2,000AD, such John-Paul II did in 1999.
