There is an observation that I have noticed in the Bible. It is stated that the number three is "divine perfection". It is also stated in the bible that “All scripture is given by inspiration of God …” 2 Timothy 3:16. If the number three is divine and the Bible is divinely inspired then we should be able to reconcile these two statements. I have done some research in the Bible to prove this fact using the King James version.
I will begin with stories related to King David. After King David had the affair with the wife of one of his soldiers named Uriah the prophet Nathan was sent unto him to prophesy that "...the sword shall never depart from thine house" (2 Sam. 12:1-10). Reading further in 2 Samuel I read of the three sons of David that died, in time, after his affair with Bathsheba. The first son to die is the child of that affair as stated in 2 Sam. 12:18-19. The second son to die of his is his first son Amnon in 2 Samuel 13:28 whom he had by Ahinoam the Yizre'elite/Jezreel. He was slain by the servants of his brother Abalom because he had raped his sister Tamar. Some years later, the third son of David's to die is Absalom who rebelled against his father. This third son of David's was by Maacah/(Maachah) the daughter of Talmay(Talmai) King of Geshur. It is stated that ten of David’s men slew him under the command of Joad David’s army commander. Of the three sons the last two are linked in that they lived together and were killed by others. Of the three boys who died it is recorded that David displayed emotion for the death of Absalom in 2 Sam. 19:4. Here are the relevant verses:
2 Samuel 12:18 "And it came to pass on the seventh day, that the child died. And the servants of David feared to tell him that the child was dead: for they said, Behold, while the child was yet alive, we spake unto him, and he would not hearken unto our voice: how will he then vex himself, if we tell him that the child is dead?"
2 Samuel 12:19 "But when David saw that his servants whispered, David perceived that the child was dead: therefore David said unto his servants, Is the child dead? And they said, He is dead."
2 Samuel 13:28 "Now Absalom had commanded his servants, saying, Mark ye now when Amnon's heart is merry with wine, and when I say unto you, Smite Amnon; then kill him, fear not: have not I commanded you? be courageous, and be valiant."
2 Samuel 18:14 "Then said Joab, I may not tarry thus with thee. And he took three darts in his hand, and thrust them through the heart of Absalom, while he was yet alive in the midst of the oak.
2 Samuel 18:15 And ten young men that bare Joab's armour compassed about and smote Absalom, and slew him."
In the observation of the threes in the Bible there is an emergence of a unique pattern to them. I detail this pattern of the in my book called "The Cracking of the Bible: The Divine Pattern Revealed."http://www.xulonpress.com/bookstore/bookdetail.php?PB_ISBN=9781498414814 http://www.amazon.com/Cracking-Bible-Divine-Pattern-Revealed/dp/1498414818/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1417658762&sr=8-1&keywords=9781498414814
