The Ulai Canal in Susa – 70, 66, 777

Verses 3 to 14 of Daniel chapter 8 comprise the vision that Daniel receives (which encompasses Alexander the great and the little horn of the latter days). Yet again, the letter count is significant – it is 777!

If you have read the previous post you will see, that with the addition of verses 8:3-14, a significant letter count design appears :- 70, 66, 777.

Verses 1 to 14 of Daniel chapter 8 are structured into three sections according to the letter count. Verse 1 and a section of verse 2 (see previous post), the rest of verse 2 and then verses 3 to 14.

(8:1 to colon in verse 2)               –   70    –   The Time of the Vision
(8:2 from colon to end verse 2)    –   66    –   The Place of the Vision
(8:3-14)                                        –   777  –   The Vision itself

Each of these numbers has 8 factors.
70 has 1, 2, 5, 7, 10, 14, 35, 70
66 has 1, 2, 3, 6, 11, 22, 33, 66
777 has 1, 3, 7, 21, 37, 111, 259, 777

That is 8 and 8 and 8. Unless you are completely new to gematria you will recognize this straight away. 888 is the gematria number of “Jesus” in the Greek NT.

Ignore the last factor in the factors above, which is just the number itself, and you have 7 factors for each number:- 7-7-7.
777 is also the total letter count of the actual vision, as shown above. I like this.

The 3 words “God”, “heaven” and “earth”, found in  Gen1:1,  have a total letter gematria of 777 when taken together ! (see following indent):-

Total Letter occurrances:- ל = 1. מ = 1. ר = 1. ש = 1. ץ = 1. א = 2. י = 2. ם = 2. ה = 3. 

Total Letter count:- 14

Total letter gematria:- 777

Factors for 777:- 1(star 1), 3, 7, 21, 37(star 3), 111, 259, 777

אלהיםH430(86) השׁמיםH8064(395) הארץ׃H776(296) 

(Verse total = 777. Verse factors:- 1(star 1), 3, 7, 21, 37(star 3), 111, 259, 777)

It is worth thinking more about what we have here – this vision, which is expanded upon in chapters 9-12, has added witness from the 777 letter count. Selah (pause for thought).

(Note:-37 appears again, as the 5th factor of 777).

Update:- The last verse of the vision, 8:14, has a letter count of 37. See note 1

The Ulai canal in Susa and 666

Dan 8:1 In the third year of the reign of King Belshazzar a vision appeared to me, Daniel, after that which appeared to me at the first.

Dan 8:2 And I saw in the vision; and when I saw, I was in Susa the capital, which is in the province of Elam. And I saw in the vision, and I was at the Ulai canal.

The following gematria is for verse 2  and leaves out the words in italics “and I saw in the vision” as this seems to be a part of the introductory statement in verse 1 as the KJV (and JPS and ESV) also notes by placing a colon after the word “vision” in verse 2 (more on this below) –

Dan 8:2 And I saw in a vision; and it came to pass, when I saw, that I was at Shushan in the palace, which is in the province of Elam; and I saw in a vision, and I was by the river of Ulai.

It is 666 nautical miles from Temple mount in Jerusalem to the Ulai canal where this great prophet saw that he was (check this yourself with a web search).

(Search the web for “2701 666” to see the relation of 666 to the creation numbers of Gen 1:1).

What of the gematria?

We have 66 letters!

Total letter gematria is 3332. Just so happens that 2 *333 =666!

Then there is 1666 (as in the fire of London) in the factors of 3332 (the Total letter gematria).
This is no accident.

Worth noting:- the total letter count beginning from chapter 8 verse 1 to the colon in verse 2 (as in ESV and KJV)  is 70 which could be viewed as confirming the division of the 2 verses subject matter at the colon ( it is the letter count that is critical here ie; 70 and 66).

There is more information, that I consider to be of great value, in the follow on post:-

The Ulai Canal in Susa – 70, 66, 777

which covers Daniel 8:1-14 and really shows the pattern for this vision.
