talanton <See definition 5007>,]
a myriad of talents, the highest number known in Greek
arithmetical notation. According to Prideaux, the Roman
talent was equal to 216(9c3b) ten thousand of which would amount
to 2,160,000(9c2e) If the Jewish talent of silver be designed,
which is estimated by the same learned writer at 450(9c2e), this
sum amounts to 4,500,000(9c2e); but if the gold talent is meant,
which is equal to 7200(9c2e), then the amount is 72,000,000(9c2e)
This immense sum represents our boundless obligations to God,
and our utter incapacity, as sinners infinitely indebted to
Divine justice, of paying one mite out of the talent.
