I hadn't realized that there are many versions of Bible verses. I was looking for things about seven times seven. It seems a poetic and lyrical expression. Of course there is a movie and there are a number of songs with the title. My search quickly retrieved 'forgiving seventy-seven times'. This is a verse from Matthew on forgiveness:
Matthew 18:21 Then Peter came to Jesus and asked, “Lord, how many times shall I forgive my brother who sins against me? Up to seven times?” 22 Jesus answered, “I tell you, not just seven times, but seventy-seven times!"

It makes me wonder what that Emoji Dick novel reads like. Fred Benenson briefly considered translating the Bible first. The famous opening line is "Call me Ishmael" - you can see the Emoji "here" in the Guardian article.
