Job 1:3

His substance (posessions) also was seven thousand (the number for a "company") sheep (simile: multitude, metaphor: of multitude) and three thousand camels (beast of burden forbidden for food), and five hundred yoke (couple, pair, team) of oxen, and five hundred she asses, and a very (exceedingly, much) great (abundant, enough) household (servants); so that this man (human being, in contrast to God) was the greatest (distinguished of men) of all the men of the east (of ancient time, from of old).
