Well, I’ve found another couple Bible verses that led me to see what’s in the rest of that number, so I’ll do a survey of what’s in the chapter 5 verse 7’s. Note: for those who wondered, I DID go through my previous posts and edit; I hope I found all the errors one reader saw!
Genesis 5:7 After he begot Enosh, Seth lived eight hundred and seven years, and had sons and daughters.
In the beginning, God let people live for hundreds of years. At the time of the flood, He decided 120 years was long enough for people to practice their life of evil on the earth.
Exodus 5:7“You shall no longer give the people straw to make brick as before. Let them go and gather straw for themselves.
When Moses and Aaron were asking Pharaoh to let the people go, Pharaoh figured the slaves didn’t have enough work to keep them busy. So he made their job harder. This was part of Pharaoh hardening his heart.
Numbers 5: 7 then he shall confess the sin which he has committed. He shall make restitution for his trespass in full, plus one-fifth of it, and give it to the one he has wronged.
This was reparation for betraying the LORD by doing wrong to another person.
Deuteronomy 5:7 ‘You shall have no other gods before Me.
The crux of the whole relationship problem between God and people, the reason Jesus came to reconcile us to the Father.
Joshua 5:7 Then Joshua circumcised their sons whom He raised up in their place; for they were uncircumcised, because they had not been circumcised on the way.
Because of unbelief in the camp, the generation that came out of Egypt was prevented from entering the Promised Land. One of their sins would have been not circumcising their sons. This generation, born during the 40 years of wandering, was allowed to follow Joshua into the Promised Land.
Judges 5:7 Village life ceased, it ceased in Israel, until I, Deborah, arose, arose a mother in Israel.
From the Song of Deborah, who was the first Judge in Israel. This is where God tested to see if the Israelites would follow Him and remove the inhabitants of Canaan to make room for them to occupy the land God promised.

These verses are so in sync with each other and it was very interesting to read. So many ways one can study the Bible.
