    Furthermore, several outstanding numerical or positional features of the NIV Bible seem to be encoded, for example the total number of verses in the NIV bible and the text beginning and ending each testament. As an example of English gematria, here are a list of meaningfully-related English phrases, along with their ordinal values. The number 5 symbolizes the idea of mediation, because it is in the center of the numerical series from 1 to 9. It is the number of man who mediates between heaven and earth and corresponds to Hermes, the messenger of the gods. Therefore it also has the meaning of reconciliation, adaptation and interference. In Kabbalah, this number of the Sephirah is assigned to justice, which indicates the correct application of the law. While certainly, you can find a few here and there, in addition to the example of 541 (Yaakov ben Rivka and Yisrael), the sum 541 also equals the following 3,443 verses! But, gematria is vital to Kabbalah as a Jewish spiritual tradition. When you loved this post and you would want to receive more info with regards to web page please visit our site. The foundation of the Kabbalistic cosmological system is based on the notion of God made the world with the power of Hebrew letters, as well as their numerical significance. The most well-known instance for Gematria comes from that of the Hebrew phrase Chai – “life”, that is made up of two letters, which total 18 letters. This makes 18 an “lucky number” among Jews and gifts of multiples of 18 are quite common in Jews. Numerical equivalents are given to the 22 letters of the Hebrew alphabet in digital ascending order from Aleph, the first letter, equivalent to 1 until Yod, the 10th letter, equivalent to 10. From there on, the letters ascend by 10s, until Kopf, the 19th letter which equals 100. The last three letters Resh, Shin, and Taf ascend by 100s, leaving us with Taf equal to 400.
