    Here you have options to search through any number of the books in Tanach. In order to select specific books, change to “Selected Only” and then you will have options to “Deselect all”, “Select All”, or enable your choice of books. Gematria became an integral part of modern ceremonial magic as practiced in the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn and by Aleister Crowley. Crowley and William Westcott of the Golden Dawn wrote several books on the subject, and Crowley published a key word guide to numerological meanings of words titled 777. (7) The addition of the number of letters in the word to the numerical value of the word itself, or the addition of the number “one” to the total numerical value of the word. Those who identify Abraham’s trained men with his servant Eliezer on the basis of the numerical value of the latter’s name are indulging in Midrash, as Scripture does not speak in gematria (numericals). With this type of interpretation one can interpret any name as he wishes, both in a positive and a negative manner. Finally there is English Gematria which assigns a numerical value based on the English alphabet (1-26). Again this system can be applied just like any other type of Gematria but produces different results due to its unique numbering system. The decoder will then display list of words with a similar English simple gematria value and English Jewish gematria value. The gemaṭria method, developed largely in the Middle Ages, became a very popular mode of interpretation, entire treatises being devoted to this branch (see Benjacob, “Oẓar ha-Sefarim,” p. 96, Nos. 119, 120; 123; p. 479, No. 737). In biblical terms, numerology is the study of how numbers used in scriptures have a symbolic meaning. For example, the twelve disciples, twelve tribes of Israel, and twelve apostles.
