Nahum Sarna says: "The use of numerical symmetry is Scripture's way of conveying the conviction that the formative age in Israel's history was not a series of haphazard incidents but the fulfillment of God's grand design……"

Avraham lived for 175 years
Yitzchok for 180 years
Ya'akov for 147years.
These numbers form an ordered and symmet-
rical series:
7 x 5 squared = 175   (Abraham)
5 x 6 squared = 180   (Isaac)
3 x 7 squared = 147   (Jacob)
