Starting to have a look at this in genesis
Genesis 9:1-11, the tower of babel…
Babel is spelt…
bet bet lamed
ב bet (value 2)…. occurs 22 times
ל Lamed (Value 30)…… occurs 37 times
Notice that bet has a gematria value of 2. There are 2 bets in Babel..that’s 2 two’s…….22, the number of times bet occurs in this passage. It’s warming up.
Notice how bet and lamed turn up in the word for confound/confusion.
ו נ ב ל הH1101 confound
ב ב ל H894 Babel
There is another 37 occurrence, that is for Yod…
Here’s the data……
ס(60) = 1. ג(3) = 2. ז(7) = 2. צ(90) = 3. ק(100) = 3. ן(50) = 4. ח(8) = 8. ץ(90) = 8. כ(20) = 9. ד(4) = 10. פ(80) = 14. ת(400) = 14. מ(40) = 16. ע(70) = 18. נ(50) = 21. ב(2) = 22. ם(40) = 22. ש(300) = 27. ר(200) = 29. א(1) = 30. י(10) = 37. ל(30) = 37. ו(6) = 44. ה(5) = 54.
(Verse total = 1666. Verse factors:- 1(star 1), 2, 7, 14, 17, 34, 49, 98, 119, 238, 833, 1666
Digit grouping for 1666 = 667. Digit grouping result factors:- 1(star 1), 23, 29, 667)
Babel on the Sea (hoho, pure conjecture but, hey, why not?)
This is Babel…bet bet lamed
. ב(2) = 22 ב(2) = 22 ל(30) = 37
more correctly, right to left
ל(30) = 37 . ב(2) = 22 ב(2) = 22
So…What is this…
ם(40) = 22 Mem sofit
י(10) = 37 Yod
ים means sea (right to left is 37 22 – admittedly its the other way around to Babel which begins with 22, not 37, but maybe as we are speaking about a divine reversal it kind of fits)
(other configurations… םי םםי יםם )
From an unused root meaning to roar ; a sea (as breaking in noisy surf) or large body of water; specifically (with the article) the Mediterranean; sometimes a large river, or an artificial basin ; locally, the west, or (rarely) the south: – sea (X -faring man, [-shore]), south, west (-ern, side, -ward).
Maybe Jeremiah chapter 51 gives a clue:-
41, How Sheshach is captured, and the glory of all the earth is seized! How Babylon has become as an object of horror among the nations!
42, The sea has risen over Babylon, she has been covered by the roar of its waves.
43, Her cities have become as an object of horror, a dry land and a wilderness,21 a land in which no person lives, nor does a son of humankind pass through it.
44, And I will punish Bel in Babylon, and I will wrench out from his mouth ‹what he has swallowed›.22 And the nations will not stream towards him any longer ‹what’s worse›,23 the wall of Babylon has fallen.
45, Come out from her midst, my people, and save each one his life from ‹the burning anger of›24 Yahweh.
46, Now ‹so that you are not fainthearted›,25 and you are afraid at the rumors6 that are heard in the land— and in the year the rumor comes, and in the year after it the rumor, and violence is in the land, with ruler against ruler—
47, ‹therefore›27 look, days are coming, and I will punish the images of Babylon, and all her land will be put to shame, and all her slain ones will fall in the midst of her.
48, Then the heaven and the earth and all that is in them will shout for joy over Babylon, for from the north the destroyers will come to it,” ‹declares›28 Yahweh.
49, Babylon must fall not only because of the slain ones of Israel, but also because of Babylon the slain ones of all the earth have fallen.
Then in Revelation 18:21 we have:-
And one powerful angel picked up a stone like a great millstone and threw [it] into the sea, saying, “In this way Babylon the great city will be thrown down with violence, and will never be found again! Rev 18:21
