ABOUT GEMATRIA AND HEBREW CHARACTERS AND THE NUMERIC VALUES


Gematria is the substitution of numbers, or other letters,
for letters of the Hebrew alphabet, according to a set
system. The purpose is to derive insights into the sacred
writings, or to obtain interpretations of the text.
"Ragil" (Normal)
Of the twenty two letters in the Hebrew alphabet, the
first nine are numbered consecutively from 1 to 9, the
next nine from 10 to 90 in intervals of ten, while the
last four letters equal 100, 200, 300 and 400
respectively. This metod is the basis for all other
methods. Each letter of the alphabet has its own numerical
value. The numerical value of a word or phrase is the sum
of the numerical value of all its letter. For example
SLWm Shalom equals 376, (S = 300, L =
30, W = 6, M = 40), 300+30+6+40=376.
"Mispar Gadol" (Great Number)
In "Mispar Gadol" method counts the final form of letters
of the alphabet as a continuation of the alphabet (k
= 500, m = 600,
n = 700,
p = 800 and
x = 900). In all the
other letters have the same value as their normal form
(e.g. K = 20, M = 40).
"Millui" (Filling)
Each letter has the numerical value of the sum of the "Ragil"
values of all the letters that make up the names of the
letter. For example A (ALp Alef ) has the
value of 111, because A = 1, L = 30, P
= 80, 1+30+80=111.

The words which are calculated using the
numeric value of letters is normally written: GYMtRYA.
Where as the words which are calculated using the names of
the letters ("filling") are written with colons between
letters: Q:B:L:H. Final letters are enlarged while
they are considered: AMn
or A:M:n.
