The chiastic structure of a certain chapter, verse, or book of the Bible can be brought together to understand the meaning that God intends. Studies show there are chiastic patterns in many parts of the Bible. In this one chiastic structure, there is a wealth of meaning God has placed within it.

Everything You Need To Know About the Number 666
In Revelation 13:18, the number 666 is given. In the verse that it is chiastically linked to; Revelation 17:9 and 10, that same number is derived from the count of the numbers of the names of the seven mountains, plus the final eighth, thus the number 666 is also seen in that chiastic verse. The elements defining this prophetic outline of the beast and its seven heads, are located in the very verse that is chiastically linked in the book of Revelation to the verse where the number 666 is given."Wisdom" is the key chiastic word in both verses. The 11 delimiting factors are all precisely integrated to produce the exact count of the number 666.
