Ezekiel 1:1 and letter count

Perhaps I am identifying a pattern here – that the prophets of the captivity in babylon are marked by letter count significance more so than the torah.

This is what I noticed in Ezekiel 1:1:-
1 to 9 letter occurrences (every number from 1 to 9), 37 as a factor of the letter count and 14 words. Hmmm… (Equally, even the digit grouping result factors for the total letter gematria of 5065 have the divine imprint).

Eze 1:1  In the thirtieth year, in the fourth month, on the fifth day of the month, as I was among the exiles by the Chebar canal, the heavens were opened, and I saw visions of God.

Total Letter occurrances:- ג = 1. ד = 1. כ = 1. פ = 1. ך = 1. ע = 2. ח = 3. מ = 3. ת = 3. ם = 3. נ = 4. א = 5. ל = 5. ר = 5. ב = 6. ש = 6. ו = 7. י = 8. ה = 9.

Total Letter count:- 74
Factors for 74:- 1(star 1), 2, 37(star 3), 74

Total letter gematria:- 5065
Factors for 5065:- 1(star 1), 5, 1013, 5065
Digit grouping for 5065:- 70. Digit grouping result factors:- 1(star 1), 2, 5, 7, 10, 14, 35, 70

Total word count:- 14
Factors for 14:- 1(star 1), 2, 7, 14

Eze 1:1 ויהי(31) בשׁלשׁים(682) שׁנה(355) ברביעי(294) בחמשׁה(355) לחדשׁ(342) ואני(67) בתוך־הגולה(477) על־נהר־כבר(577) נפתחו(544) השׁמים(395) ואראה(213) מראות(647) אלהים׃(86)
(Verse total = 5065. Verse factors:- 1(star 1), 5, 1013, 5065
Digit grouping for 5065 = 70. Digit grouping result factors:- 1(star 1), 2, 5, 7, 10, 14, 35, 70)

Here is the letter count pattern:-

5 * 1
1 * 2
4 * 3
1 * 4
3 * 5
2 * 6
1 * 7
1 * 8
1 * 9

Update:-
It appears that the book of Daniel uses letter occurrences in a different way, see letter occurrences.

Ezekiel 27 – address to Tyre and 13

Ezekiel chapter 27 – address to Tyre.

This gematria leaves out the preliminary introduction as shown in italics below but starts at “O Tyre” and is inclusive of all text thence to the end of the chapter.

Eze 27:1  The word of the LORD came to me:
Eze 27:2  “Now you, son of man, raise a lamentation over Tyre,
Eze 27:3  and say to Tyre, who dwells at the entrances to the sea, merchant of the peoples to many coastlands, thus says the Lord GOD: “O Tyre, you have said, ‘I am perfect in beauty.’

Total letter gematria:- 102154
Factors for 102154:- 2, 13, 26, 3929, 7858, 51077
Clustering for 102154:- 256. Cluster factors:- 2, 4, 8, 16, 32, 64, 128

Again, a single factor stands out for the total letter gematria – 13.

The difference between Ezekiel chapters 28 and 27 is that 28 has more than one subject but wraps them all together with the factor 7. Chapter 27 is one subject and so if we just analyze the address, leaving out the introduction, we find the significant result – 13.

Ezekiel 28

Ezekiel Chapter 28

What the gematria highlights here is the significance of the fallen King (verses 12 to 19) and his close tie in with israel in the latter days (which makes up the text of the chapter after verse 19).

The letter gematria for the whole chapter is:-

Total Letter count:- 1379
Factors for 1379:- 7, 197
Clustering for 1379:- 380. Cluster factors:- 1,2, 4, 5, 10, 19, 20, 38, 76, 95, 190, 380

Basically, the whole chapter only has one significant factor – 7

Next, note verses 12 to 19 , the lamentation for the King of Tyre:-

Total Letter occurrances:- ז = 1. ג = 2. ט = 2. ץ = 2. צ = 3. ן = 4. ס = 5. ק = 6. ח = 9. פ = 10. ד = 12. ש = 14. ם = 14. ע = 16. נ = 17. ר = 23. כ = 24. מ = 24. ב = 29. ה = 34. ך = 36. א = 37. ל = 38. ת = 38. ו = 39. י = 48.

Total Letter count:- 487
Factors for 487:- 487 is a prime number

Total letter gematria:- 33310
Factors for 33310:- 2, 5, 10, 3331, 6662, 16655
Clustering for 33310:- 343. Cluster factors:- 7, 49

Total word count:- 110
Factors for 110:- 2, 5, 10, 11, 22, 55

As was pointed out to me a few years ago, the digit grouping/clustered result of 33310 is 343 which is 7*7*7.

Gematria similarities between Hamonah and the modern day Amona settlement

This particular post is not claiming to be scholarly, just interesting.

Hamonah:-

Eze 39:16  And alsoH1571 the nameH8034 of the cityH5892 shall be Hamonah.H1997 Thus shall they cleanseH2891 the land.H776

Ezekiel 39:16 we have:- Hamonah –   (strongs number is 1997)   values:-  5 40 6 50 5 = 106

   heh  mem vav nun heh

ה(5) מ(40) ו(6) נ(50) ה (5) = 106

Amona:-

Here is ‘Amona’ in Joshua 18:24:-
כּפר העמּוני which means “Village of the ammonites” in Joshua 18:24.

( Note that the Hebrew is that found in the strongs definitions – the actual hebrew text of 18:24 renders it:-
מ(40) נ(50) י (10) = 100 ) thus leaving out the WAW/VAV letter with a value of 6.

Jos 18:24  Chephar-ammoni, Ophni, Geba–twelve cities with their villages:

We need to remove the “village of the” bit (Chephar – including the heh and ayin, the ‘of the’). Leaves us with

מּ(40) ו(6) נ(50) י(10) = 106

What we see here is the replacement of the 2 heh (5) values with one yod (10) value

The modern Hebrew for the Amona settlement is:-

ע(70) מ(40) ו(6) נ(50) ה (5) =171

However, it derives it’s name from the passage in Joshua 18:24 as any internet search will reveal.
