Luk 16:5, Luk 16:7 ten thousand: Μυριων [Strong's G3461], ταλαντων [Strong's G5007], a myriad of talents, the highest number known in Greek arithmetical notation.

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. 1Ch 29:7, Ezr 9:6, Psa 38:4, Psa 40:12, Psa 130:3, Psa 130:4 talents: "A talent is 750 ounces of silver, which after five shillings the ounce is 187£. 10s."
