    It is possible that this well-known cipher was used to conceal other more hidden ciphers in Jewish texts. For instance, a scribe may discuss a sum using the ‘standard gematria’ cipher, but may intend the sum to be checked with a different secret cipher. Although a type of gematria system (‘Aru’) was employed by the ancient Babylonian culture, their writing script was logographic, and the numerical assignments they made were to whole words. The value of these words were assigned in an entirely arbitrary manner and correspondences were made through tables, and so cannot be considered a true form of gematria. Aru was very different from the gematria systems used by Hebrew and Greek cultures, which used alphabetic writing scripts. Similar systems have been used in other languages and cultures derived from or inspired by Hebrew gematria; Arabic abjad numerals, and English gematria. There is currently no academic consensus over whether Hebrew gematria or Greek isopsephy was used first. The Reverse Ordinal Gematria is actually the complete reversal of the ordinal Gematria. You can see the numeric value of the string alphabet “A” is “26” and the letter “Z” has the numerical value of “1”. You can find the Reverse Ordinal Gematria value of any word by the gematria decoder. The gematria calculator is a more interactive way to find the numerical values in the most famous Gematria against the alphabet provided.
