But you have to bear in mind that the chapter & verse numbers in the Bible are not part of the ancient text. They were inserted relatively recently, the 16th century, as a means of reference. I don't think the 16:18 is any more significant than the Royal Flush that I just happened to get straight off the deck, one evening, playing poker with friends.
