Bible Numbers 2.0

Advice For Serving God

Philippians 2:14-15 is sound advice to the believer in this life and for the next. It is the mark of mature servants of the lord.

Do all things without grumbling or questioning, that you may be blameless and innocent, children of God without blemish in the midst of a crooked and perverse generation, among whom you shine as lights in the world- (Philippians 2:14-15 RSV)
παντα ποιειτε χωρις γογγυσμων και διαλογισμων ινα γενησθε αμεμπτοι και ακεραιοι τεκνα θεου αμωμα μεσον γενεας σκολιας και διεστραμμενης εν οις φαινεσθε ως φωστηρες εν κοσμω (Philippians 2:14-15 GNT)1

The thought is complete after verse 15, but the sentence continues to the end of verse 16. Everything up to the end of verse 15 is universal advice to every believer. Paul adds himself into the thought with verse 16, and this no longer is general advice. As a result, the numbers Numerics Gematria end with verse 15.

Numeric Features

These verses do not talk about God, and they do not impart deep spiritual truth. As a result, many of the features are one offs and stand alone. Features are not paired symmetrically.

Primary Features

(Derived from Revelation 1:8 and grouped for easy reference.)

A.1Numeric total: 9982 = 2 x 7 x 23 x 31. (See feature 2.)

A.4Number of words: 26 = 2 x 13. (See feature 2.1.)

A.5Number of letters: 147 = 3 x 7 x 7. (See feature 2.2.)

B.4Every other letter (odd): 6055 = 5 x 7 x 173. (See feature 5.1.)

B.4.2Every other letter (even): 3927 = 3 x 7 x 11 x 17. (See feature 5.2.)

C.2.2First and last word of each verse: 1918 = 2 x 7 x 137. (See feature 1.)

C.3.2First and last letter of each word: 3801 = 3 x 7 x 181. (See feature 7.3.)

D.3.3First letter of each word: 1960 = 2 x 2 x 2 x 5 x 7 x 7. (See feature 7.1.)

E.3.3Last letter of each word: 1694 = 2 x 7 x 11 x 11. (See feature 7.2.)

G.4.2Second third of the letters: 2145 = 3 x 5 x 11 x 13. (See feature 2.3.)

Verse Features

1First and last words of each verse: 1918 = 2 x 7 x 137.

Words And Letters

2.The numeric total is 9982 (2 x 7 x 23 x 31). The seven shows this is good advice, and the twenty-three shows it is for people. The sum of the factors is 63 (3 x 3 x 7), indicating there are good benefits for following this deeper. The sum of sixty-three's factors is 13, the ultimate goal of faithful service, God.

2.1There are 26 words in these two verses. Twenty-six is also the sum of the divine name in Hebrew. (26 = 2 x 13)

2.2There are 147 letters (3 x 7 x 7).

2.3Divide the letters into three equal sections. The middle section: 2145 = 3 x 5 x 11 x 13.

3.1Odd valued words:

3    4    9   11  13  15  19  20 21  25 
1179 1029 305 175 273 225 491 45 159 45

Position total: 140 = 2 x 2 x 5 x 7. Word total: 3926 = 2 x 13 x 151. (Even valued words yield no corresponding feature.)

3.2Rank the words from small to greatest. Divide the list in half. The lesser half of the words:

5  10 18 20 25 7  16  12  8   21  11  1   15
20 20 20 45 45 50 144 156 158 159 175 212 225

Position total of the lesser half: 169 = 13 x 13. SF: 26 = 2 x 13. The word values produce no feature.

4The greater half of the words:

2   13  17  9   22  19  14  23  26  6   4    3    24
258 273 280 305 458 491 662 690 790 866 1029 1179 1272

Position total of the greater half: 182 = 2 x 7 x 13. Again the word values themselves have no feature.

5.1Odd positioned letters:

70 40 1 60 5 100 400 80 90 60 3 90 600 10 9 9 20 3 90 600 9 1 5 7 8

4 5 100 1 30 40 90 40 9 300 9 5 8 600 300 90 7 5 5 10 90 600 

Total of odd positioned letters: 6055 = 5 x 7 x 173.

5.2Even positioned letters:

1 100 70 9 9 5 600 9 3 3 200 30 40 1 4 1 60 9 30 40 40 3 40 90 5 30 
30 100 9 1 1 5  1 60 100 10 1 5 200 30 30 30 90 40 5 5 90 10 20 1 10 
9 9 90 80 30 5 7 5 60 90 1 40 90 5 90 600 100 80 90 40 60 30 

Total of even positioned letters: 3927 = 3 x 7 x 11 x 17.

6.Odd valued letters:

a) 2  5  8  9  10  12  16  18  20  21  28  29  31  32  35  36  41  
b) 1  1  9  5  9   5   9   3   3   3   1   9   9   1   3   9   9   

a) 43  44  45  47  50  51  53  58  60  61  62  64  66  67  69  71  
b) 1   3   5   7   5   1   5   9   1   9   1   5   1   9   9   5   

a) 74  76  79  83  85  89  90  92  93  99  100  103  104  106  107  
b) 1   5   1   1   5   3   5   5   1   9   1    1    9    9    5    

a) 111  114  116  118  121  124  125  127  130  137  139  141  
b) 1    5    7    5    9    1    9    5    5    7    5    5    

Position total: 4147 = 11 x 13 x 29. The letter values yield no feature, and there is no paired feature with the even valued letters.

7.1First letter of each word:

a) 1  6  13  18  27  30  41  44  51  59  62  70  75  79  84  89  95  
b) 70 70 400 3   10  4   9   3   1   10  1   100 8   1   30  3   90  

a) 102  105  118  120  123  131  133  141  143  
b) 10   4    5    60   300  600  300  5    10   

The sum of the positions: 1960 = 2 x 2 x 2 x 5 x 7 x 7. Letter total: 2107 = 7 x 7 x 43.

7.2Last letter of each word:

a) 5  12  17  26  29  40  43  50  58  61  69  74  78  83  88  94  
b) 1  5   90  40  9   40  1   5   9   9   9   1   200 1   40  90  

a) 101  104  117  119  122  130  132  140  142  147  
b) 90   9    90   40   90   5    90   90   40   600  

Letter total: 1694 = 2 x 7 x 11 x 11.

7.3The first and last letters of each word added together: 3801 = 3 x 7 x 181.

The first letter of each word had two features, one in the positions of the letters, and one in the value of the letters. The last letter of each word only has one in the value of the letters. The symmetry is incomplete.

7.4Letters that are not first OR last:

1 40 100 60 9 5 9 100 600 80 9 60 3 3 200 90 30 600 1 9 1 20 
60 3 9 90 30 600 40 5 40 7 90 8 30 5 30 70 100 60 1 10 5 80 1 9 
60 5 10 40 5 60 30 600 30 5 90 60 5 40 5 1 10 60 20 9 1 1 9 5 90 
100 80 1 30 30 5 40 7 9 1 9 40 5 90 8 600 90 100 7 80 5 60 90 30

Total: 6181 = 7 x 883.

8.Four letters in the Greek alphabet are not in this passage. These letters are in the passage:

1 3 4 5 7 8 9 10 20 30 40 60 70 80 90 100 200 300 400 600

Total of those present: 2037 = 3 x 7 x 97.

9.1Rank the letters by the number of appearances. Divide the list in half. The total number of appearances of the lesser half: 28 (2 x 2 x 7).

9.2The total number of appearances of the greater half: 119 = 7 x 17.

10.1Letters greater than 30 (the upper half of the Greek alphabet).

Conclusion

Faithful service is required by any job. A worker who does what his boss requires without grumbling is appreciated more. One who serves cheerfully clearly likes his job and employer. These points are all obvious. They are not deep spiritual truths. The numbers reflect the depth of the topic.
