Hi, Rita —

Thanks for the question.

This is really one of those questions you can answer through your own personal research.

All I had to do was to Google the phrase:

how many times does the number 40 appear in the Bible, or
how many times does this word appear in the bible

I can up with pages of results.

On this page I found:

The number 40 is mentioned 146 times in the Bible. The number points to or symbolizes trial and testing, or probation.

I hope this helps,

Mike
