Like all Bible numbers, 1189 is carefully chosen and meaningful.
Between 1 and 2 billion there are only 6 numbers which can be geometrically arranged as tiles on a table as both a square and a triangle.
The square root of the 4th number (1,413,721) is 1,189. Meaning the 4th number can be arranged as a square of tiles with 1,189 on each side.
The 4th number can also be arranged as a triangle with 1,681 on each side.
Triangular numbers are rich in the Bible and emphasize the TRINITY and TRI-UNE nature of Scripture's author.
The number 1,189 is equal to 29 x 41. Twenty-nine is the number of "SEPARATION" and forty-one is the number of "MAN'S RULE".
Thus, 1,189 points to the Scripture as the Book which contains God's laws, authored by an eternal divine tri-une being. Its chapters are not a collection of "MAN'S RULES", its chapters are completely "SEPARATE" from human thinking and human authorship.
Note: The validation of the meanings of 29 and 41 can be found at www.biblenumbersforlife.com, Theme 3 - The Life of the Believer.
Credit goes to Vernon Jenkins for identifying the importance of 1,189 in connection to 1,681.
