I should have rewrote my meaning of “the number of humans”. It is a number for humans. The original Hebrew word translated for sin is chata’, ( khaw-taw’ the k is silent = haw-tah). It has the meaning “to miss, miss the mark”. In the Hebrew (Hiphil) of the word, means “to miss the mark” Years ago, I used the idea of riding on the original merry go round. The riders go around and reach for a ring at a stationary location just out from the edge of the merry go round. A rider would win a prize if they got hold of the ring. Unfortunately, no matter how often the rider passes the ring, they are up or down, or out of reach. No matter how hard they try, they can’t reach the ring. So, they “miss the mark”. We all miss the mark of perfection (7)!
