Revelation 21:17

17 And he measured its wall, a 1hundred and forty-four cubits, according to the measure of a 2man, that is, of an 2aangel.

171 A hundred and forty-four is twelve times twelve. Twelve times twelve signifies the absolute perfection and eternal completion of absolute perfections and eternal completions. How perfect and complete is the wall of the holy city in God's eternal administration!

The city proper is like a mountain with a height of twelve thousand stadia, whereas the wall itself, from the foundation to the top, has a height of a hundred and forty-four cubits.
