“Gematria is a method of assigning the numerical values to a term or a phrase”. The fourth method, Mispar Katan Mispari, integral reduced value, reduces the total value of the word to a single-digit number. If the sum exceeds nine, then the integer values of the total are added together again and again until a single-digit number is received. For example, the word, ḥesed (lovingkindness) has an absolute or normative value of 72. The ḥet equals 8, the samakh equals 60, and the dalet equals 4. The numbers of the sum of 72 are then added together (7 plus 2) to equal 9. It should be pointed out that the integral reduced value of the ordinal value and the reduced value of ḥesed also add up to 9. Each of the 22 letters in the Hebrew alphabet is correlated with a specific number. Gematria (from Gr. γεωμετρία) is the computation of individual letters, words, or entire sentences utilizing their numerical equivalence. Some people believe that the words and ideas in the Torah may be connected with or understood from the numerical values and relationships. It is alleged that the numerical word value is not unintentional, but rather prearranged. However, gematria is essential to Kabbalah, the Jewish mystical tradition. The very basis of the kabbalistic cosmological system rests on the belief that God created the universe through the power of the Hebrew letters along with their numerical values. Indeed the many names of God and their permutations in Kabbalah have numerical values that are believed to contain potent power. Gematrinator.com is my favorite website on this list to calculate gematria online. This calculator has a collection of over 30 gematria ciphers. Apart from that, it also breaks the value character-by-character.
