The term first occurs in literature in the twenty-ninth of the thirty-two hermeneutic rules of R. In some texts the rule for permutative gemaṭria is counted as a separate regulation—the thirtieth (comp. Königsberger’s edition of the rules in his “Monatsblätter für Vergangenheit und Gegenwart des Judenthums”). A less common type of gematria is Greek gematria, which assigns numerical values to Greek letters. The values range from and are similar to those used in Hebrew gematria, with alpha being equal to 1. Greek gematria can be used in much the same way as Hebrew gematria, but its application is more limited due to its rarity. A gematria decoder find which words has a certain gematria value. This value is based on the letters of the alphabet, with each letter having a corresponding number. The calculator can be used to find the numerical value of a word or phrase, which can then be used to interpret its meaning. “Gematria is a method of assigning the numerical values to a term or a phrase”. Over the centuries, scholars have created numerous sophisticated systems of gematria for interpreting Jewish texts and traditions. For example, the numerical value of each letter in a word may be deciphered separately to indicate something explicit. And each letter in a word really has a hidden meaning or secret behind its mathematical quantity. Many individuals believe there are an unlimited number of secrets in the Torah that can be unlocked utilizing gematria. 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. 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,[2] and so cannot be considered a true form of gematria.
