29, MOUNTAINS AND DEPARTURE
Since mountains are associated with hearing God speak and the voice of the Lord, this number is also associated with those themes. It could have to do with instruction from the Lord as well, but it definitely has to do with mountains. There are 29 Mountains in the Bible
Going to the mountain has to do with worship and hearing the voice of the Lord, so I suspect that 29 is associated with God’s voice.
Psalm 29 is all about the voice of the Lord:
1 Give unto the LORD, O ye mighty, give unto the LORD glory and strength.
2 Give unto the LORD the glory due unto his name; worship the LORD in the beauty of holiness.
3 The voice of the LORD is upon the waters: the God of glory thundereth: the LORD is upon many waters.
4 The voice of the LORD is powerful; the voice of the LORD is full of majesty.
5 The voice of the LORD breaketh the cedars; yea, the LORD breaketh the cedars of Lebanon.
6 He maketh them also to skip like a calf; Lebanon and Sirion like a young unicorn.
7 The voice of the LORD divideth the flames of fire.
8 The voice of the LORD shaketh the wilderness; the LORD shaketh the wilderness of Kadesh.
9 The voice of the LORD maketh the hinds to calve, and discovereth the forests: and in his temple doth every one speak of his glory.
10 The LORD sitteth upon the flood; yea, the LORD sitteth King forever.
11 The LORD will give strength unto his people; the LORD will bless his people with peace.

SPEAKING OF EVER-REST…
SAYING 29 OF “THE 30 SAYINGS OF THE WISE” IN PROVERBS 22-24:
Proverbs 24:19 – Do not fret because of evildoers or be envious of the wicked, 20 for the evildoer has no future hope, and the lamp of the wicked will be snuffed out.
HEBREW RESEARCH PIGGY-BACKS OFF OF THIS!
Twenty-Nine in Hebrew is kaph-teth: DEPARTURE
INTERSECTION OF MOUNTAINS AND DEPARTURE:
- Moses climbing the mountain and departing.
- Jesus died and departed the first time from Golgotha – Mount Moriah
- Jesus’ departure/Ascension from the Mount of Olives
- Mount of Transfiguration where Moses and Elijah came for a visit but departed rapidly back to heaven.
This letter combination can signify the works (kaph) of the serpent (teth), but in this case the teth has more to do with the idea of surrounding or encircling. The serpent was often pictured as eating its tail to form a circle.
A circle is also covenant, like a wedding ring. The circle of life, which is about seasons and the concept of Ecclesiastes 1:9 – What has been will be again, what has been done will be done again: there is nothing new under the sun
From God’s point of view, the earth is a circle:
Isaiah 14:22 – He sits enthroned above the circle of the earth, and its people are like grasshoppers. He stretches out the heavens like a canopy, and spreads them out like a tent to live in.
AGAIN, Twenty-nine is the number of departure. This being the last number of the series of twenties, it depicts a change from the covering of one’s house into something new.
Also, because the number nine has to do with the judgment of the Holy Spirit, the baptism of fire, it is preparatory to the number 30, which is about dedication to rulership.
