    The word gematria is thought to be derived from the Greek letter gamma (the third letter in the Greek alphabet) since the number “3” in numerology has special significance. Others claim that it is derived from the Greek word geometria, which means “geometry.” There is no consensus and nobody really knows for sure. Gematria has been used by many religious and mystical traditions over the centuries, including kabbalists, astrologers, magicians, and alchemists. Its use was particularly important in Jewish mysticism where it was believed that certain words possess special power when they are composed with specific gematria numbers. Words with powerful gematria values were thought to have magical properties that could bring about specific results or provide protection against evil forces. Skeptics, however, have noted that gematria can be employed as “proof” to support diametrically opposing positions, depending on the words and phrases one chooses to highlight and calculate. A somewhat tongue-in-cheek illustration of this involved an attempt to predict the 2016 United States presidential election through the gematria of the candidates’ names. The author of the article showed how this line of reasoning could be used just as easily to predict the victory of either candidate. Nevertheless, gematria continues to have an appeal in some quarters. The Hebrew Gematria is the oldest known Gematria, and you should have a separate Hebrew gematria calculator to find the values in the Hebrew Gematria. The Gematria Hebrew is specific and there is no regularity of the numeric except for the first 5 numbers of the English alphabets. Gematria is an alphanumeric code where letters and words in the Hebrew alphabet are assigned numbers, values, or calculations.
