what’s in number 7?

“For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me.”-Matthew 25:35-36 New International Version (NIV)

note: I am currently reading, The Guardian of Mercy, by Terence Ward where the author enumerated the significance of number 7. The author talks about the painting, The Seven Acts of Mercy, by Caravaggio. Caravaggio in his painting added the seventh act of mercy: burying the dead.

I have finished The Noise of Time by Julian Barnes and Neverwhere by Neil Gaiman.
