Bible Numbers 2.0

The Story Of Abraham

The story of Abraham begins in Genesis 13:8. Prior to this point the story was of the children of Terah: Abram and Lot. Even though the next few chapters include other people and events, from this point the story really is about Abraham and the promise God gave him.

Then Abram said to Lot, Let there be no strife between you and me, and between your herdsmen and my herdsmen; for we are kinsmen. (Genesis 13:8)1

Although he was the elder, Abram allowed his nephew Lot to choose land first (Genesis 13:9). God would honour Abram for his meekness, and generosity.

The text segment ends with God providing a substitute sacrifice for Isaac.

So Abraham called the name of that place The LORD will provide; as it is said to this day, On the mount of the LORD it shall be provided. (Genesis 22:14)

This is the climax of Abraham's life as he passes God's final test. As God offered Jesus to make possible a future in heaven for humanity, so Abraham was willing to offer Isaac to obtain the promise of many descendants. Events after this point never change his standing with God or change Isaac as the future heir to God's promises. Thus the numbers Numerics Gematria stop with the highest point in Abraham's life.

Events covered by this passage:

Although Abraham continues to play a key role, after Genesis 22:14 the story becomes Isaac's story. No numeric features were found for the life of Isaac. One reason might be because Isaac was never really tested like Abraham.

Number of verses: 236 = 2 x 2 x 59. SF: 63 = 3 x 3 x 7. SF: 13.

2.From the list of verse totals, search for equal segments from the beginning and end whose totals when added together are divisible by 7.

	236 235 234 233 232	...	5   4   3   2   1

	        |---B---|                |---B---|

Line A covers verses 1 and 2 from the beginning, and verses 1 and 2 from the end. Line B covers verses 3 to 5 from the beginning, and verses 3 to 5 from the end. 1 and 3 are the start positions of the paired segments. 2 and 5 are the end positions. (Verses 1 and 2 from the end are actually verses 235 and 236 from the beginning, but we will only be using the numbers 1 and 2 as the common distance from either end of the list.)

2.1This chart covers all paired groups of verses that together and individually are divisible by thirteen. There are thirty-one of them. (The reverse of 13 in terms of digits.)

a) Group's start position.      b) Group's end position.
c) Total of both groups.

2.2Position total (a + b): 4030 = 2 x 5 x 13 x 31. Coincidentally, thirteen and thirty-one (the reverse in terms of digits) appear in the factors. (Thirteen is associated יהוה, and 31 is the numeric value of the Hebrew word for god (El, אל).

2.3From the beginning, the 16th verse to the 32nd verse, plus the 16th verse from the end to the 32nd verse from the end (221 to 205): 117649 = 7 x 7 x 7 x 7 x 7 x 7. SF: 42 = 2 x 3 x 7. SF: 12 = 2 x 2 x 3. SF: 7. (This was selected out of a large list and might just be the odds, but it was too good to pass up.)

The first group by itself is divisible by 7: 59619 = 3 x 7 x 17 x 167. And this means the last group is also divisible by 7: 58030 = 2 x 5 x 7 x 829.

Why 16 and 32? Perhaps because from beginning and end these four numbers add up to 96 (2 x 2 x 2 x 2 x 2 x 3. SF: 13). Or perhaps 16 + 17 + 18 ... + 30 + 31 + 32 = 408 (2 x 2 x 2 x 3 x 17. SF: 26 = 2 x 13. The 16th from to end to the 32nd to the end are actually the numbers 205 and 221 from the beginning. And adding all numbers from 205 to 221: 3621 = 3 x 17 x 71. SF: 91 = 7 x 13. In all three cases, the number of God's name appears in the second level. It's as if this mirrors what was seen in features 1.2.1 and 1.2.2 where God was not obvious at first, but is clearly seen later.

2.4Beginning with the first verse, and taking every Nth verse after, find all those that produced sequences divisible by 7. N works for the following sequences: 3, 28, 31, 41, 59, 60, 61, 63, 70, 71, 80, 95, 98, 102, 114, and 116. The sum of these numbers: 1092 = 2 x 2 x 3 x 7 x 13.

2.5Break the list of verses into segments of 59 verses each. Number each segment. The sum of the odd positioned segments: 406630 = 2 x 5 x 7 x 37 x 157. SF: 208 = 2 x 2 x 2 x 2 x 13. SF: 21 = 3 x 7. The sum of the even positioned segments: 414344 = 2 x 2 x 2 x 7 x 7 x 7 x 151. (Four alternating segments were possible: 2, 4, 59, 118. Mathematicians would say this was just the odds.)

2.6List all verses divisible by 13:

a) Position
b) Verse total

a) 1    5    9    20   36   43   59   101  120  129  140  141  152
b) 2821 2158 5057 4732 3276 1066 8996 4979 1807 3991 6500 4953 3822

a) 156  162  218  223
b) 2873 5564 4953 2327

The sum of the positions: 1715 = 5 x 7 x 7 x 7. SF: 26 = 2 x 13.

2.7The middle 14 verses (from 112 to 125): 41743 = 13 x 13 x 13 x 19. (The sum of numbers from 112 to 125: 1659 = 3 x 7 x 79.)

2.8The 236 verses with their totals are placed in a 4 x 59 block.

2.8.1First and last columns: 420287 = 7 x 60041. This means the two inner columns are also divisible by 7: 400687 = 7 x 57241.

2.8.2The first row and every other row:
417976 = 2 x 2 x 2 x 13 x 4019.

2.8.3Eleven rows are divisible by 7: 4 10 12 19 21 24 32 34 39 40 59. The total of these rows:
294 = 2 x 3 x 7 x 7. (Out of 59 rows the odds would expect only 7 or 8.)

2.8.3.2Eight rows are divisible by 13: 7 9 15 29 32 33 39 57. The total of these rows: 221 = 13 x 17. (Out of 59 rows, the odds would suggest only 5 or 6.)

2.9.1Every other row: 406630 = 2 x 5 x 7 x 37 x 157. (This means the remaining two rows also work: 414344 = 2 x 2 x 2 x 7 x 7 x 7 x 151.)

2.9.2Perimeter: 422849 = 7 x 29 x 2083. (This means everything inside works: 398125 = 5 x 5 x 5 x 5 x 7 x 7 x 13.)

2.9.3First and last columns: 35360 = 2 x 2 x 2 x 2 x 2 x 5 x 13 x 17.

2.9.4Eleven columns have totals divisible by 7. Out of 59 columns the odds would normally suggest only 7 or 8.

2.9.5The first and last 7 columns: 196497 = 3 x 3 x 7 x 3119.

3.1.3The last section: 265489 = 7 x 17 x 23 x 97.

3.1.4This naturally means the first and last sections together are divisible by 7 as well: 540673 = 7 x 77239. SF: 77246 = 2 x 13 x 2971.

3.1.5321 words were divisible by seven. The total of their positions: 524447 = 73 x 11 x 139.

3.1.6269 words were divisible by thirteen. The total of these words:57512 = 23 x 7 x 13 x 79. SF: 105 = 3 x 5 x 7.

3.2Number of letters: 12404 = 2 x 2 x 7 x 443.

3.3Numeric total: 820974 = 2 x 3 x 7 x 11 x 1777.

4.1Odd positioned words: 416577 = 3 x 7 x 83 x 239.

4.2Even positioned words: 404397 = 3 x 3 x 7 x 7 x 7 x 131.

5.1Odd positioned letters: 412090 = 2 x 5 x 7 x 7 x 29 x 29.

5.2Even positioned letters: 408884 = 2 x 2 x 7 x 17 x 859.

5.3Odd valued letters: 8176 = 2 x 2 x 2 x 2 x 7 x 73.

5.4Even valued letters: 812798 = 2 x 7 x 58057.

6.1The first letter of each word: 119490 = 2 x 3 x 5 x 7 x 569.

6.2The last letter of each word: 258167 = 7 x 13 x 2837.

6.3Positions of the first and last letters of each word together: 40865111 = 7 x 59 x 98947.

6.4The first and last letters of each word together: 377657 = 7 x 53951.

6.5.1Divide the letters into groups of 4 each. Add up the odd positioned groups: 418369 = 7 x 59 x 1013. SF: 1079 = 13 x 83.

6.5.2Add up the even positioned groups: 402605 = 5 x 7 x 11503. SF: 11515 = 5 x 7 x 7 x 47.

6.6.1Divide the letters into groups of 7 each. Add up the odd positioned groups: 412657 = 7 x 167 x 353.

6.6.2Add up the even positioned groups: 408317 = 7 x 7 x 13 x 641.

7.1Beginning with the first letter and every 443rd letter after: 1477 = 7 x 211.

7.2Every 886th letter: 595 = 5 x 7 x 17.

8The letters of God's name (10-5-6-5) can be applied 126 times to count through the words. The total of the words found: 124202 = 2 x 13 x 17 x 281.

8.2They can also count through the letters 477 times. The total of the letters found: 129870 = 2 x 3 x 3 x 3 x 5 x 13 x 37.

Conclusion

Contrary to what Muslims and others have claimed, the similarity in numeric features with The Proclamation assure us the origin of the people of Israel as recorded in the Bible is true. There was a man in ancient times by the name of Abraham who was chosen by God. The covenant God made with him, offering protection and blessing were later transferred to Isaac. God said to Abraham that Isaac was his only son and this is said twice! (Ishmael was not considered.) This was just the first step in bringing God’s plan for the redemption of the world.
