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.
