Bible Numbers 2.0

Part 6: A Message To Muslims

The meaning of Islam is submission to God. A Muslim is one who submits to God. But what does it mean to submit to God? Can you submit to someone you know little or nothing about?

The Qur'an actually says very little about God in comparison with the Bible. The little it tells of what God did in the past is repeated over and over. It says even less of what God is like. Holiness, love, justice and righteousness occupy only a few verses. The Bible is filled with verses of God telling us how much He loves these qualities.

The Qur'an admonishes its readers to do good, obey and believe, but has very little in the way of law or what exactly to do. These are taught from the Sunnah and the Haddith, records of Muhammad's life, precedents and decisions. But these are not the Qur'an, and they did not come from God's angel. They were written centuries later by Islamic scholars. Compare this with the laws God gave Israel on Mt Sinai.

If a Muslim submits to God by what is taught in the Sunnah and the Haddith, and these are not part of the Qur'an, and not from the angel, is this really submitting to God?

Is the Qur'an's Allah the same as the lord God in the Bible?

In the Bible, God says,

I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending, saith the Lord, which is, and which was, and which is to come, the Almighty. (Revelation 1:8 KJV)

I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end, the first and the last. (Revelation 22:13 KJV)

Contrast this to what the Qur'an says of Allah.

Surah 53:25 But it is to Allah that the End and the Beginning (of all things) belong.

Surah 92:13 And verily unto Us (belong) the End and the Beginning.

Surah 57:3 He is the First and the Last, the Evident and the Hidden: and He has full knowledge of all things.

Allah, is claimed to be the first and the last, but there is no phrase where Allah himself actually says, I am the First and the Last. Allah is said to have the beginning and the end. This is not the same as Revelation saying God is the beginning and the end. And finally, Allah is never mentioned as the one who is, was and is to come.

Only the God of the Bible, the lord God, has ever claimed a threefold "Alpha and Omega," "First and Last," and "Beginning and End" statement. Only the God of the Bible says He knows the past, present and future (Isaiah 41:4, 26-29; 42:8-9; 43:10-13; 44:6-8; 45:18, 21-23; 46:9-10).

Thus the numeric principles derived from Revelation 1:8 are much more appropriate to the Bible than to the Qur'an. Even if similar numeric features can be found in the Qur'an, this would be no different than finding them in other texts like A Study In Scarlet, by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. It would be purely coincidental.

Quoting the prophet Isaiah, Jesus said,

This people honors me with their lips, but their heart is far from me; in vain do they worship me, teaching as doctrines the precepts of men.
RSV Matthew 15:8-9

Jesus was speaking to the Jews of his day, but his warning, like Isaiah's prophecy apply equally to us. God wants us to listen to Him, not to men, not to scholars, and not to what we think He wants.

The Qur'an actually testifies against Muhammad and Muslims.

Surah 6:107 If it had been Allah's plan, they would not have taken false gods: but We made thee not one to watch over their doings, nor art thou set over them to dispose of their affairs.

Surah 17:54 It is your Lord that knoweth you best: If He please, He granteth you mercy, or if He please, punishment: We have not sent thee to be a disposer of their affairs for them.

Surah 27:92 And to rehearse the Qur'an: and if any accept guidance, they do it for the good of their own souls, and if any stray, say: "I am only a Warner".

Surah 35:23 Thou art no other than a warner.

Surah 39:41 Verily We have revealed the Book to thee in Truth, for (instructing) Mankind. He, then, that receives guidance benefits his own soul: but he that strays injures his own soul. Nor art thou set over them to dispose of their affairs.

Surah 42:6 And those who take as protectors others besides Him, Allah doth watch over them; and thou art not the disposer of their affairs.

Four times the Qur'an says Muhammad is not to be a disposer of affairs. But the moment he picked up the sword, Muhammad became a disposer of affairs. Any Muslim who appeals to the life of Muhammad makes him a disposer of affairs and violates their own scripture. This is the plain text of the Qur'an. There is no such contradiction in the Bible.

I bow down toward thy holy temple and give thanks to thy name for thy steadfast love and thy faithfulness; for thou hast exalted above everything thy name and thy word.
RSV Psalm 138:2

Then the LORD said to me, You have seen well, for I am watching over my word to perform it.
RSV Jeremiah 1:12

The numbers Numerics Gematria from Exodus 34:6-7 prove beyond doubt that God continually preserves and looks after His word in the Bible. And now we have further proof of this preservation in a Chinese version of the same verse. Muslims have been taught that the Bible was corrupted. They have been taught the language of the Qur'an is special and sacred. They are wrong. Nothing in the Qur'an even comes close to the miraculous mathematical features found in the Bible (Hebrew, Greek and Chinese). (Click for more on Why Not Arabic?)

The Bible is superior to the Qur'an in every way. God talks about Himself in the Bible, describing who He is and what He wants. We learn of holiness, justice, righteousness and love from the lessons recorded in the Bible. We learn from the laws God (not an angel) gave us.

Jesus also said,

For truly, I say to you, till heaven and earth pass away, not an iota, not a dot, will pass from the law until all is accomplished. Whoever then relaxes one of the least of these commandments and teaches men so, shall be called least in the kingdom of heaven; but he who does them and teaches them shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven.
RSV Matthew 5:18-19

Jesus was not talking about corrupted scriptures, and he was not referring to laws made up by men. To truly submit to God is to submit to God's laws.

Thou meetest him that joyfully works righteousness, those that remember thee in thy ways. Behold, thou wast angry, and we sinned; in our sins we have been a long time, and shall we be saved?
RSV Isaiah 64:5

Without the Bible, we would have no idea what God meant by righteousness. Without the Bible it would be impossible to remember God, His ways, and what He has accomplished. Without the Bible, there is no way of submitting to God. There is no way of being a true Muslim without following the Bible. Following Muhammad, the Sunnah and Haddiths is transgressing the Qur'an and not submitting to God.

The following is meant to encourage Muslims to read the Bible and accept its truths. Even when they are translated into different languages, there are numeric features. This proves the ideas in the Bible are universal and extraordinary. Nothing like this exists in the Qur'an.

In another section of this site, reasons were given why Arabic was not used for numbers like Hebrew and Greek. Farsi is based on the Arabic alphabet, but it is different and has extra letters. Why use Farsi if Arabic is not used? 1) Because Persia is mentioned in Daniel's visions and forms a major part of history (Daniel 2:32; 8:3; 10:13 & 20). 2) Like Russia and China, Iran has withstood Western pressure to seek her own way. Since Western propaganda is so overwhelmingly negative, it seems only fair to present something positive. 3) God wants all people to know His word. What better way than to have numeric features in a Farsi Bible?

Note: I do not know the Farsi language. I cannot vouch for the accuracy of the translations below. I do know that even with English Bibles, translation is affected by theology. If some of the Farsi translations below contain explanations or extraneous text that is not part of direct translation, I would not be able to recognize them. These translations of the Bible to Farsi were obtained from Wordproject a registered domain of International Biblical Association, a non-profit organization registered in Macau, China.

Revelation 1:8 was the key to discovering numeric features in the Hebrew and Greek texts of the Bible. As such, this is the first verse to check in Farsi. (For the conversion of Farsi to numbers, see Note 1 below.)

The total is divisible by 13, a number related to the numeric value of God’s name in Hebrew יהוה, with the letter values 10-5-6-5: 84396 = 2 x 2 x 3 x 13 x 541.

The value of the Hebrew letters of God’s name can be used to count through the Farsi words of Revelation 1:8 thirteen times.

a) 10   5    6    5    10   5    6    5  10   5    6    5     10 5

a) 5    6    5    10   5    6    5  10   5    6    5
b) 15   21   6    16   21   7    12 22   7    13   18
c) 15   1    6    16   1    7    12 2    7    13   18
d) 3000 3000 3901 3012 3000 3000 20 5064 3000 4700 11010

a) Letter value from the Hebrew.
b) Count.
c) Count adjusted to 20 Farsi words.
d) Word found in Farsi version of Revelation 1:8

Total (line d): 213499 = 11 x 13 x 1493. The result is again divisible by 13.

Since Revelation 1:8 is of Alpha and Omega, pair each word (Nth and Nth last) and list all those that together are divisible by seven.

Nth word:       2    3     8
Value:          5064 1401  39

Nth last:       19   18    13
Value:          641  11010 4700

Values
Nth & Nth last: 5705 12411 4739

Sum of positions: 63 = 3 x 3 x 7. SF: 13.

Alpha and Omega are a pair. Pair up all the words and collect every other group.

Odd positioned groups of 2:

3000 5064 5001 3901 14810 2000 4700 4064 3000 11010

Total: 56550 = 2 x 3 x 5 x 5 x 13 x 29.

Even positioned groups of 2:

1401 3000 3000 39 5030 20 3000 3012 641 8703

Total: 27846 = 2 x 3 x 3 x 7 x 13 x 17.

Precisely 14 (2 x 7) words are even valued. (There is no matching feature with the odd valued words.)

There is only one word that is a prime number because there is only one God. Coincidentally its position is also a prime number.

This leaves 19 words whose totals are not prime numbers.

Position: 1    2    3    4    5    6    7    8  9     10   11   12
Word:     3000 5064 1401 3000 5001 3901 3000 39 14810 2000 5030 20

Position: 13   14    15   16   17   18     20
Word:     4700 4064  3000 3012 3000 11010  8703

The sum of their positions is once again a prime number: 191. The symmetry of 191 points to the one God who is Alpha and Omega. The total of these 19 words: 83755 = 5 x 7 x 2393. SF: 2405 = 5 x 13 x 37. (Note: the sum of 2405's factors comes to 55, another symmetrical number whose factors are 5 and 11. The eleven is another symmetrical number.)

Alpha and Omega leads to looking at the first and last, or beginning and end. What about the middle? Revelation 1:8 also states God is the one who "is, was, and is to come." This leads to looking at the middle. One can take the middle 18 words, the middle 16 words, the middle 14 words, and so on. Only the middle 8 words are divisible by seven. And they are divisible by seven twice.

The middle 8 words: 3000 39 14810 2000 5030 20 4700 4064

Total: 33663 = 3 x 7 x 7 x 229.
Why the middle 8 words? Perhaps because the sum of these positions, from 7 to 14 add up to 84 (2 x 2 x 3 x 7. SF: 14 = 2 x 7).

Turning to the letters of the Farsi version of Revelation 1:8 there are other features.

Odd positioned letters:

1    3    5 7 9   11   13 15  17 19   21  23   25   27 29   31 33
1000 4000 4 1 500 5000 1  900 9  1000 800 5000 2000 10 3000 10 10

35  37   39 41 43 45   47   49  51 53  55   57  59  61
700 4000 4  2  10 1000 5000 600 10 300 5000 900 100 1

Total: 40872 = 2 x 2 x 2 x 3 x 13 x 131.

Even positioned letters:

2    4  6    8   10   12 14   16   18 20   22   24 26 28 30   32
2000 60 1000 900 3000 1  3000 3000 30 5000 3000 10 9  1  2000 9

34 36   38 40   42   44   46   48 50 52 54  56 58 60  62
1  4000 60 3000 3000 3000 5000 10 1  30 900 1  1  900 600

Total: 43524 = 2 x 2 x 3 x 3 x 3 x 13 x 31.
There is perfect balance with odd positioned and even positioned letters both producing totals divisible by 13.
The digits of the factors in these two cases appear almost the same, tempting one to add them together: 2 + 2 + 2 + 3 + 13 + 131 + 2 + 2 + 3 + 3 + 3 + 13 + 31 = 210 (2 x 3 x 5 x 7).

Alpha and Omega are complementary opposites. The letters can be categorized in four ways.

                  A) Odd positioned     B) Even positioned
C) Odd valued           AC                      BC
D) Even valued          AD                      BD

Categories AC and BD are similar in that position and value are both odd, or both even (as opposed to mixed). Letters in these two categories total 43512 (2 x 2 x 2 x 3 x 7 x 7 x 37). Once again there are two factors of 7.

Previously, the words were grouped in pairs, and every other pair further grouped. The letters have a similar feature. Since letters are not words, there is a slight difference. Rather than taking every other pair, which would be all the odd positioned, or all the even positioned pairs, take only pairs that are odd valued.

Odd valued pairs of 2:

1 900           5000 1         1 3000         9 30  
2000 9          10 1           10 9           10 1  
600 1           5000 1         900 1          1 600 

Total: 18096 = 2 x 2 x 2 x 2 x 3 x 13 x 29.

Even valued pairs of 2:

1000 2000       4000 60        4 1000         500 3000        
900 3000        1000 5000      800 3000       5000 10        
3000 2000       700 4000       4000 60        4 3000        
2 3000          10 3000        1000 5000      5000 10        
10 30           300 900        100 900       

Total: 66300 = 2 x 2 x 3 x 5 x 5 x 13 x 17.

As the words could be paired Nth and Nth last and be divisible by 7, so can the letters.

Nth letter:     3    9    15  24
Value:          4000 500  900 10

Nth last:       60   54   48  39
Value:          900  900  10  4

Values
Nth & Nth last: 4900 1400 910 14

Sum of positions: 252 = 2 x 2 x 3 x 3 x 7.

There is one pair, Nth and Nth last that together are divisible by 13.

Nth letter:     15
Value:          900

Nth last:       48
Value:          10

Values
Nth & Nth last: 910

Sum of positions: 63 = 3 x 3 x 7. SF: 13.

Only one letter is divisible by 7. It has the value 700 (2 x 2 x 5 x 5 x 7. SF: 21 = 3 x 7), and it is in the 35th position (5 x 7).

Similar to the words, the middle 58 letters have a feature.

Total: 80795 = 5 x 11 x 13 x 113. The middle 58 letters run from the third to sixtieth letters. The sum of these positions is 1827 (3 x 3 x 7 x 29. SF: 42 = 2 x 3 x 7).

In terms of numeric features, the Farsi version of Revelation 1:8 holds up quite well in comparison with the original Greek. Essentially, God is telling Muslims He is still speaking to them, and the words He is speaking are found in the Bible.

I am not certain if anyone else has demonstrated anything like this. Clearly Almighty God has arranged all things beforehand. That this discovery was found August 13, 2022 means God is speaking to Muslims today from the Bible.

One verse might be a fluke. The next verse to consider is right at the beginning of the Bible: Genesis 1:1.

Genesis 1:1 (Persian/Farsi)
    در ابتدا، خدا آسمانها و زمین‌ را آفرید.
a) 1        2             3          4                          5

(Note: The numbers are presented from left to right even though Farsi is 
 read from right to left. Place values are actually the position of the
 letter in the Farsi alphabet.)
List of words:
40 18 20 7062 3000 8040 31 5540

List of letters:
10 30 1 2 4 10 1 9 10 1 60 1000 1 2000 4000 1 3000 40 1000 5000 2000 30 1
500 30 5000 10

The total of the place values (line c): 387 = 32 x 43. This is not divisible by seven or thirteen. The feature is hidden in the factors. The sum of the factors: 49 = 72. This goes another level: 14 = 2 x 7.

The numeric total (line b): 23751 = 32 x 7 x 13 x 29. Not only is it divisible by seven, but also by 13. Thirteen is related to the numeric value of the Hebrew name for God (10-5-6-5; יהוה), which has a total of 26 (2 x 13). The numbers show God’s hand in creation. The sum of the factors of 23751 is 55. This is not divisible by seven or thirteen, but its factors are 5 and 11. The eleven is a visual numeric representation of the one God who is beginning and end.

Following the description in Revelation 1:8, I am the Alpha and the Omega, the first letter of each word is listed below.

Letter position: 1  3 8 11 17   18 22 24
Letter value:    10 1 9 60 3000 40 30 500

The total of the letter positions: 104 = 23 x 13. Once again the number associated with God appears.
The total of the letters: 3650 (2 x 52 x 73). This is not divisible by 7 or 13, but 365 is very familiar as the establishment of the solar year.

Again following Revelation 1:8 the last letter of each word is listed below.

Letter position: 2  7 10 16 17   21   23 27
Letter value:    30 1 1  1  3000 2000 1  10

This time the total of the positions yields nothing: 123 = 3 x 41.
On the other hand, the total of the letters, 5044 = 22 x 13 x 97, once again shows God in creation.

The reason why the first and last letters do not consistently produce the same result is because Genesis 1:1 is about creation, not about God like Exodus 34:6-7. Creation is vastly inferior to God, and thus the numbers should not be expected to equal those in The Proclamation.

The positions of the first and last letters total 227. This is a prime number showing the uniqueness of the creation of the earth. At first glance this appears quite mundane, until one realizes 227 is the 49th prime number.

While the first letter of each word has no feature on its own, aside from its coincidental relation to the solar year, first and last together according to Revelation 1:8 total 8694 (2 x 33 x 7 x 23). This shows the completed work of creation from beginning to end.

Looking just at the words there are other features.

The passage divides evenly, like the beginning and end mentioned in Revelation 1:8, into first half and last half.

First half:

40 18 20 7062

Total: 7140 = 2 x 2 x 3 x 5 x 7 x 17.

Last half:

3000 8040 31 5540

Total: 16611 = 3 x 7 x 7 x 113. SF: 130 = 2 x 5 x 13.

There is only one odd valued word because there is only one God. Conveniently it is the only prime number, and is the seventh word with a value of 31. In Persian, 31 might not mean anything, but the Hebrew letters for the word God (אל ;30-1) also have a value of 31.

This means the remaining words, seven in all, are not prime numbers.

Turning to the letters, there are more features.

Since Revelation 1:8 states that God is, was and is to come (present, past, future), His creation can also be divided into three. Group the 27 letters into groups of three. Separate the groups according to Alpha and Omega. In this case the complementary opposites are groups that have an odd total, or an even total.

Odd valued groups of 3:

10 30 1    1 60 1000    1 2000 4000    1 3000 40    30 1 500

Total: 10675 = 5 x 5 x 7 x 61. SF: 78 = 2 x 3 x 13.

Even valued groups of 3:

2 4 10    1 9 10    1000 5000 2000    30 5000 10

Total: 13076 = 2 x 2 x 7 x 467.
The difference between these two categories: 13076 − 10675 = 2401. (7 x 7 x 7 x 7!) This shows the beautiful balance in God’s creation.

Once again applying Revelation 1:8, find the Nth letter from the beginning and the Nth letter from the end where the two added together would be divisible by seven. There is only one pair as there is only one God. In this case they are also divisible by thirteen.

Nth letter from the beginning:   12
Value of Nth letter:             1000

Nth letter from the end:         16
Value of the Nth end letter:     1

Total of the two letters: 1001 = 7 x 11 x 13. A thousand and one is also an excellent visual representation of a number showing the one God who is Alpha and Omega. The zeroes in the centre represent the finite period of our creation, which in contrast with eternity is nothing.
Sum of positions as counted from the beginning: 28 = 2 x 2 x 7.

Exactly seven letters are odd valued.

3 7 8 10 13 16 23
1 1 9 1  1  1  1

Their positions total: 80 = 2 x 2 x 2 x 2 x 5. SF: 13.

Whether a letter value is a prime number or not a prime number establishes a different sort of complementary opposite like Alpha and Omega. Only one letter is a prime number. It is the fourth letter. This means the remaining 26 letters (2 x 13) are not prime numbers.

1  2  3  5 6  7 8 9  10 11 12   13 14   15   16 17   18 19   20
10 30 1  4 10 1 9 10 1  60 1000 1  2000 4000 1  3000 40 1000 5000

21   22 23 24  25 26   27
2000 30 1  500 30 5000 10

The interesting part is that the sum of the positions of these twenty-six letters again shows the one God: 374 = 2 x 11 x 17.
And the sum of the numbers themselves do the same: 23749 = 11 x 17 x 127.

Since Alpha and Omega refer to the beginning and end, this turns the attention to what is in the middle just as is, was, is to come has the present pulled out of sequence.

The 15 middle letters:

1 9 10 1 60 1000 1 2000 4000 1 3000 40 1000 5000 2000 

Total: 18123 = 3 x 7 x 863. Why are the fifteen middle letters special? These are the letters from 7 to 21. Thus the positions are added from 7 to 21: 210 = 2 x 3 x 5 x 7.

The middle 7 letters have their own feature.

60 1000 1 2000 4000 1 3000

Total: 10062 = 2 x 3 x 3 x 13 x 43. The sum of their positions: 98 = 2 x 7 x 7.

We could try the middle letter, the middle 3 letters, middle 5 and so on, but only the middle 7 and middle 15 have these features. Why are these two the only two that work? Perhaps because 7 + 15 = 22 (2 x 11). The eleven shows the same one God again. And the sum of the factors is 13, pointing back to God’s name in Hebrew.

Similar numeric features, and others, are also found in the Chinese numeric study on this same verse. This shows the universal nature of the ideas in the Bible. There is nothing in the Qur'an that even comes close to this.

The Name of God is not Allah

At first, the Israelites had no name for God (Exodus 3:13). It was only after Moses asked that God gave a name. This name is found in Exodus 3:14-15. Below is the pertinent section in three languages, Hebrew, English and Farsi. The Hebrew name for God is highlighted.

ויאמר אלהים אל משה אהיה אשר אהיה
ויאמר כה תאמר לבני ישראל אהיה שלחני אליכם
ויאמר עוד אלהים אל משה כה תאמר
אל בני ישראל יהוה אלהי אבתיכם אלהי אברהם אלהי
יצחק ואלהי יעקב שלחני אליכם זה שמי לעלם וזה
זכרי לדר דר (Exodus 3:14-15)
God said to Moses, "I AM WHO I AM." And he said, "Say this to the people of Israel, 'I AM has sent me to you.'" God also said to Moses, "Say this to the people of Israel, 'The LORD, the God of your fathers, the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob, has sent me to you': this is my name for ever, and thus I am to be remembered throughout all generations." (Exodus 3:14-15)
خدا به‌ موسی‌ گفت‌: «هستم‌ آنكه‌ هستم‌.» و گفت‌: «به‌ بنی‌اسرائیل‌ چنین‌ بگو: اهْیه‌ (هستم‌) مرا نزد شما فرستاد.» و خدا باز به‌ موسی‌ گفت‌: «به‌ بنی‌اسرائیل‌ چنین‌ بگو، یهوه‌ خدای‌ پدران‌ شما، خدای‌ ابراهیم‌ و خدای‌ اسحاق‌ و خدای‌ یعقوب‌، مرا نزد شما فرستاده‌. این‌ است‌ نام‌ من‌ تا ابدالا´باد، و این‌ است‌ یادگاری من‌ نسلاً بعد نسل‌.
(Exodus 3:14-15)

The name God gave in Hebrew was יהוה (Yhwh), and this is translated as "The LORD" in English with the definite article and capitals. This is different from the words אֱלֹהִ֜ים and אֱלֹהֵ֣י translated as God in English. As can be seen in the English translation, the word God appears six times. (And this matches the original Hebrew text.) In the Farsi translation of this verse, the word خدا (God) appears six times as well. The word الله (Allah) does not appear at all, though it did appear in the first verse of this chapter. Thus the translators did not use Allah as a replacement, or translation for יהוה. (Not knowing Farsi, I do not know which word/letters were chosen to stand in for the Hebrew name.)

Add up the first letter of each word: 63713 = 133 x 29. There are three factors of 13 pointing to God’s name in Hebrew.

There is no corresponding feature with the last letter of each word. This should not be surprising since this is Farsi and not the original Hebrew text.

Odd valued words: 61642 = 2 x 72 x 17 x 37. SF: 70 = 2 x 5 x 7. SF: 14 = 2 x 7.

Even valued words: 190736 = 24 x 7 x 13 x 131.

Every other letter, or odd positioned letters: 131378 = 2 x 13 x 31 x 163. Once again there is not matching feature with the even positioned letters.

Ten words were prime numbers:

12   14    16   22 28   42   46   48   50 53
9007 13001 1031 43 9007 1031 7001 3001 5  7001

Total of the words: 50128 = 24 x 13 x 241. This means the remaining forty-nine words (7 x 7) are not prime numbers.

The 212 letters can form groups of four letters.

Odd valued groups of 4:

Besides demonstrating that God’s name is not Allah, these two verses tell us the name God wants to be remembered by includes being the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. This is forever!

Isaac The Chosen Heir

The Bible clearly states that Isaac was God’s chosen heir, not Ishmael. The numbers confirm this in the Farsi translation.

But God said to Abraham, Be not displeased because of the lad and because of your slave woman; whatever Sarah says to you, do as she tells you, for through Isaac shall your descendants be named. (Genesis 21:12 RSV)
خدا به‌ ابراهیم‌ گفت‌: «دربارۀ پسر خود و كنیزت‌، بنظرت‌ سخت‌ نیاید، بلكه‌ هر آنچه‌ ساره‌ به‌ تو گفته‌ است‌، سخن‌ او را بشنو، زیرا كه‌ ذریت‌ تو از اسحاق‌ خوانده‌ خواهد شد. (Farsi Bible)

Since this is not about God, nor about Jesus, but about a promise to Abraham and Isaac, the numeric features will be different. It should not be expected that they have consistency like the other verses above.

4000 9 3000 1 4000 10 70 10

Numeric total: 118447 = 7 x 16921. The sum of the factors is 16928 (25 x 232). This is not divisible by seven or thirteen, but the 5 twos and the 2 twenty-threes are in line with the meaning of the verse. The twos are reminiscent of Adam and Eve who were told to multiply (Genesis 1:28). The twenty-threes confirm this is about people, since the average person has 23 pairs of chromosomes. The next level of factors shows God's hidden hand: 56 (23 x 7). And this goes one step further again with the sum of these factors: 13.

The first letter of each word:

a) 1 4 6 13  16 21 24 27   28   32 37 40   45 48   50   53 57 59 61
b) 9 2 1 800 10 3  9  3000 2000 2  60 2000 2  4000 2000 60 2  4  800

a) 65 68 71 73 75 79 83   84 88 90 92 97 103 108
b) 1  60 1  30 2  40 4000 20 4  1  1  9  9   70

a) Letter position.      b) Letter value.

Total of the letters (line b): 19012 = 22 x 72 x 97. Once again there are a pair of twos, and also a pair of sevens in the factors.

There is no corresponding feature with the last letter of each word, or even with first and last together because this is about Abraham and Isaac, not about God.

Even positioned letters:

a) 2  4 6 8  10   12   14  16 18 20 22 24 26 28   30 32 34  36 38 40
b) 10 2 1 30 4000 1000 500 10 2  30 60 9  10 2000 40 2  200 4  9  2000

a) 42 44 46  48   50   52   54 56   58   60   62  64   66 68 70   72
b) 1  10 900 4000 2000 4000 1  4000 4000 3000 500 4000 60 60 2000 3000

a) 74 76 78   80   82 84 86   88 90 92 94 96  98   100  102  104  106
b) 1  70 3000 5000 1  20 5000 4  1  1  8  600 3000 2000 4000 3000 4000

a) 108   (Letter position.)
b) 70    (Letter value.)

Total: 71227 = 13 x 5479. Once again there is no matching feature for the odd positioned letters. (If there was, one might think this meant Abraham and Isaac were special enough to be gods.)

How can it be confirmed that this is from the God of the Bible? The name God gave the Hebrews was יהוה, with letter values 10-5-6-5. Since there are thirty-three words in the passage, the values of God's name in Hebrew can count through the passage twice. This would overshoot the length of the passage with the count wrapping to the beginning.

a) 10   5    6    5    10    5    6    5
b) 10   15   21   26   36    8    14   19
c) 10   15   21   26   3     8    14   19
d) 2236 6007 2069 4000 10034 3000 4030 5304

a) Letter from the name.
b) Count.
c) Count adjusted to 33 words.
d) Word found in passage.

Total: 36680 = 23 x 5 x 7 x 131.

Once might be a fluke. Use the name to count through the passage 13 times.

a) 10   5    6    5    10    5    6    5    10 5  6    5     10   5
b) 10   15   21   26   36    8    14   19   29 34 7    12    22   27
c) 10   15   21   26   3     8    14   19   29 1  7    12    22   27
d) 2236 6007 2069 4000 10034 3000 4030 5304 41 20 3019 12011 3001 5054

a) 6  5  10   5  6    5    10   5    6    5    10 5  6     5    10

d) 80 73 6007 65 4000 9020 3000 4902 5304 5072 20 93 12011 4002 5054

a) 5    6  5    10 5    6    5     10   5    6    5  10 5  6    5
b) 32   38 10   20 25   31   36    13   18   24   29 39 11 17   22

a) 10   5    6    5    10   5   6     5     (Letter value.)
b) 32   37   10   15   25   30  36    8     (Count.)
c) 32   4    10   15   25   30  3     8     (Count adjusted to 33 words.)
d) 7020 1304 2236 6007 5071 670 10034 3000  (Word found.)

Total: 207578 = 2 x 7 x 14827.

Alpha and Omega lead to searching for a group of words from the beginning, and a group of words from the end that together are divisible by seven, and symmetrically positioned within the verse.

The first group is from the 5th to 7th words from the beginning: 73 93 3019 (3185 = 5 x 7 x 7 x 13).
The other group is from the 5th last word to the 7th last word: 5054 3004 41 (8099 = 7 x 13 x 89).
Both groups are individually divisible by seven and thirteen. This means the two groups together are also divisible by 91: 11284 = 22 x 7 x 13 x 31.

A second group runs from the 9th word to the 14th word: 7044 2236 73 12011 4902 4030 = 30296 = 23 x 7 x 541.
It's mirror image is of the 9th last word to the 14th last word: 65 2069 3001 31 5072 5071 = 15309 = 37 x 7.
Once again both groups are individually divisible by seven. This means the two groups together are also divisible by seven: 45605 = 5 x 7 x 1303.

Since these groups were specifically selected to be divisible by seven, there is the possibility this is simply coincidence. Can it be coincidence when the positions also produce their own feature?

Start position of group: 5     9
End position of group:   7     14

Total of the start positions: 14 (2 x 7).
Total of the end positions: 21 (3 x 7).
All the positions together: 35 (5 x 7).

What succeeded with groups divisible by seven can also be done for groups divisible by thirteen. The first paired group is the same one that appeared in the previous feature.

5th word to 7th word: 73 93 3019 (3185 = 5 x 7 x 7 x 13)
5th last to 7th last: 5054 3004 41 (8099 = 7 x 13 x 89)

Both groups combined: 11284 = 22 x 7 x 13 x 31.

12th word to 13th word: 12011 4902 (16913 = 13 x 1301)
12th last to 13th last: 2069 3001 (5070 = 2 x 3 x 5 x 13 x 13)

Both groups combined: 21983 = 13 x 19 x 89.

12th word to 14th word: 12011 4902 4030 (20943 = 3 x 3 x 13 x 179)
12th last to 14th last: 65 2069 3001 (5135 = 5 x 13 x 79)

Both groups combined: 26078 = 2 x 13 x 17 x 59. SF: 91 = 7 x 13.

Start positions: 5 12 12
End positions:   7 13 14

All positions: 63 = 3 x 3 x 7. SF: 13. (In this case, the individual start and end positions have no feature. But they still have a feature when combined.) The total of all the groups combined goes on further level with the factors: 59345 = 5 x 11 x 13 x 83. SF: 112 = 24 x 7.

Thirteen words are odd valued, but there is no other feature.

Ten words have totals that are prime numbers:

Position: 5  7    11 12    15   16   21   22   23 29
Word:     73 3019 73 12011 6007 4091 2069 3001 31 41

The sum of their position: 161 = 7 x 23.

Five words are divisible by thirteen:

Position: 10   14   19   20 32
Word:     2236 4030 5304 65 7020 

Their total is also divisible by seven: 18655 = 5 x 7 x 13 x 41.

The letters of God’s name in Hebrew can count through the 109 letters of the passage five times, with the final count wrapping around to the beginning.

a) 10   5  6  5  10 5    6    5    10  5  6  5    10 5  6  5    10
b) 10   15 21 26 36 41   47   52   62  67 73 78   88 93 99 104  114
c) 10   15 21 26 36 41   47   52   62  67 73 78   88 93 99 104  5
d) 4000 4  3  10 4  5000 4000 4000 500 4  30 3000 4  60 1  3000 4000

a) 5    6  5  (Letter value from יהוה.)
b) 10   16 21 (Count.)
c) 10   16 21 (Count adjusted to 109 letters.)
d) 4000 10 3  (Letter found in passage.)

Total: 31633 = 7 x 4519.

Similar to the words, letters can be found in groups symmetrically placed from the beginning and end that are individually divisible by thirteen.

A: Group's starting position, Nth from the beginning and Nth from the end.
B: Group's end position, Nth from the beginning and Nth from the end.
C: Total of the combined groups.

A  B  C
2  44 87087 = 3 x 7 x 11 x 13 x 29. SF: 63 = 32 x 7. SF: 13.
14 25 12428 = 22 x 13 x 239.
17 42 49933 = 13 x 23 x 167. SF: 203 = 7 x 29.
20 52 82121 = 13 x 6317.
24 32 30186 = 2 x 33 x 13 x 43.
29 31 10114 = 2 x 13 x 389.
34 51 36803 = 13 x 19 x 149.
38 47 26065 = 5 x 13 x 401.
38 49 31395 = 3 x 5 x 7 x 13 x 23.
48 49 5330  = 2 x 5 x 13 x 41.

Total of columns A and B: 686 = 2 x 73. (Three factors of seven!) Total of column C: 371462 = 2 x 7 x 13 x 13 x 157. (There is an extra factor of 13, and a factor of 7.)

Beginning with the Nth letter, and taking every Nth letter after, the following values of N would select a group of letters divisible by seven:

Values of N: 6 8 24 26 27 28 40 42 44 52 53

The sum of N: 350 = 2 x 52 x 7.

This also succeeds with every Nth letter adding up to something divisible by thirteen:

Values of N: 2 11 13 26 32

The sum of N: 84 = 22 x 3 x 7. SF: 14 = 2 x 7.

And it also works with every Nth letter adding up to something divisible by 7 and 13:

Values of N: 26

Total of N: 26 = 2 x 13.

Even positioned letters:

10 2 1 30 4000 1000 500 10 2 30 60 9 10 2000 40 2 200 4 9 2000 1 10
900 4000 2000 4000 1 4000 4000 3000 500 4000 60 60 2000 3000 1 70
3000 5000 1 20 5000 4 1 1 8 600 3000 2000 4000 3000 4000 70

Total: 71227 = 13 x 5479.

All these numeric features in the Farsi version of Genesis 21:12 show the truth of the text. Isaac was Abraham's heir chosen by God. This ties in with God’s name being remembered through Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. But the very interesting part is that Genesis 21:12 in the original Hebrew was not divisible by seven or thirteen! Why? Because the Israelites knew their own history. They did not require proof. The Farsi version has numeric features because Muslims do not know the truth in the Bible or accept it.

(For more on the true line of Abraham, see Ishmael or Isaac: The True Heir of Abraham I, and II.)

True Christianity does not accept the Trinity, and there is no place in the numbers for such a theory. For more on this, see the section for Jewish believers, and the study on John 1:1 in Chinese.
