Fifteen, Fifteenth

Resource Toolbox
1: δεκαπέντε
(Strong's #1178 — Noun — dekapente — dek-ap-en'-teh )

lit., "ten-five," occurs in John 11:18 ; Acts 27:28 ; Galatians 1:18 .

Notes: (1) In Acts 7:14 , "threescore and fifteen" translates a different numeral, lit., "seventy-five." This refers to all Joseph's kindred whom he sent for. There is no discrepancy between this and Genesis 46:26 . The Sept. translations give the number as 75 in Genesis 46:27 and in Exodus 1:5 , and this Stephen follows, being a Grecian Jew. (2) The corresponding ordinal numeral pentekaidekatos, "fifteenth" (lit., "five and tenth") is found In Luke 3:1 , where Luke dates the reign of Tiberias from the period of his joint rule with Augustus.
