Ten

Gen 15:18  On that day the LORD made a covenant with Abram, saying, “To your offspring I give this land, from the river of Egypt to the great river, the river Euphrates,
Gen 15:19  the land of the Kenites, the Kenizzites, the Kadmonites,
Gen 15:20  the Hittites, the Perizzites, the Rephaim,
Gen 15:21  the Amorites, the Canaanites, the Girgashites and the Jebusites.”

Here we should stop – selah – let us consider. Abram rescues his kinsman Lot:-

Gen 14:14  When Abram heard that his kinsman had been taken captive, he led forth his trained men, born in his house, 318 of them, and went in pursuit as far as Dan.
Gen 14:16  Then he brought back all the possessions, and also brought back his kinsman Lot with his possessions, and the women and the people.

Then the land of the Ten is given to Abram by covenant:-

Gen 15:18  On that day the LORD made a covenant with Abram, saying, “To your offspring I give this land, from the river of Egypt to the great river, the river Euphrates……

Later, the Ten enemies of the promised/covenant land are mentioned as “the strong arm of the children of Lot.”
Ten enemies make a covenant against the promised land:-

Psa 83:5  For they conspire with one accord; against you they make a covenant
Psa 83:6  the tents of Edom and the IshmaelitesMoab and the Hagrites,
Psa 83:7  Gebal and Ammon and AmalekPhilistia with the inhabitants of Tyre;
Psa 83:8  Asshur also has joined them; they are the strong arm of the children of Lot. Selah

Dan 7:7  After this I saw in the night visions, and behold, a fourth beast, terrifying and dreadful and exceedingly strong. It had great iron teeth; it devoured and broke in pieces and stamped what was left with its feet. It was different from all the beasts that were before it, and it had ten horns.
Dan 7:8  I considered the horns, and behold, there came up among them another horn, a little one, before which three of the first horns were plucked up by the roots. And behold, in this horn were eyes like the eyes of a man, and a mouth speaking great things.

Ten toes (presumably):-
Dan 2:41  And as you saw the feet and toes, partly of potter’s clay and partly of iron, it shall be a divided kingdom, but some of the firmness of iron shall be in it, just as you saw iron mixed with the soft clay.
Dan 2:42  And as the toes of the feet were partly iron and partly clay, so the kingdom shall be partly strong and partly brittle.
Dan 2:43  As you saw the iron mixed with soft clay, so they will mix with one another in marriage, but they will not hold together, just as iron does not mix with clay.
Dan 2:44  And in the days of those kings the God of heaven will set up a kingdom that shall never be destroyed, nor shall the kingdom be left to another people. It shall break in pieces all these kingdoms and bring them to an end, and it shall stand forever,

Rev 13:1  And I saw a beast rising out of the sea, with ten horns and seven heads, with ten diadems on its horns and blasphemous names on its heads.

Rev 17:8  The beast that you saw was, and is not, and is about to rise from the bottomless pit and go to destruction. And the dwellers on earth whose names have not been written in the book of life from the foundation of the world will marvel to see the beast, because it was and is not and is to come.
Rev 17:9  This calls for a mind with wisdom: the seven heads are seven mountains on which the woman is seated;
Rev 17:10  they are also seven kings, five of whom have fallen, one is, the other has not yet come, and when he does come he must remain only a little while.
Rev 17:11  As for the beast that was and is not, it is an eighth but it belongs to the seven, and it goes to destruction.
Rev 17:12  And the ten horns that you saw are ten kings who have not yet received royal power, but they are to receive authority as kings for one hour, together with the beast.
Rev 17:13  These are of one mind, and they hand over their power and authority to the beast.
Rev 17:14  They will make war on the Lamb, and the Lamb will conquer them, for he is Lord of lords and King of kings, and those with him are called and chosen and faithful.”
Rev 17:15  And the angel said to me, “The waters that you saw, where the prostitute is seated, are peoples and multitudes and nations and languages.
Rev 17:16  And the ten horns that you saw, they and the beast will hate the prostitute. They will make her desolate and naked, and devour her flesh and burn her up with fire,
Rev 17:17  for God has put it into their hearts to carry out his purpose by being of one mind and handing over their royal power to the beast, until the words of God are fulfilled.
Rev 17:18  And the woman that you saw is the great city that has dominion over the kings of the earth.”
