My name is Jay Pilon, I am the author of this blog and I wanted to say a special thanks for viewing my Gematria study! I appreciate all of the feedback and numerous warm wishes given by the readership. This blog receives over 100 visits a day, so to everyone that contributed over the years thank you!
For those of you unfamiliar with Gematria, or what the numbers mean, I wanted to post a detailed primer to get you started on your path toward understanding more about numerical patterns and their significance. In the past few years the study of Gematria has really gained momentum. The lack of information on the study of this discipline is unfortunate, and rarely do I ever find any sources that give detailed descriptions of Gematria. What is Gematria? Where did it come from? How do we use Gematria? Why do names equal ‘whatever‘ value? What is the ‘mark of beast’? Most, if not all, sites will have no explanation, or in the worse case, a completely false narrative to provide fictitious answers!
I have been studying secular and biblical phrases and words for nearly 20 years now. My research into words that connect and have similar phonetics or numerical value has lead to some unique, but wonderful surprises.
WHAT IS GEMATRIA?
In ancient tradition, scholars and sages sought to give a numerical value to the letters within their traditional alphabet. The letters constituting of any Greek word for example, can be converted into numbers, which can then be summed to give a numerical value for the word itself, a process which can be extended to phrases and passages of text or may also apply to the calendar year and the like.
In this way numerical connections between biblical and secular words and phrases have been discerned and studied for many generations, a practice known for Hebrew, as Gematria, and for Greek, Isopsephia.
There are a number of forms of Gematria tools which exist today, as the methods of Gematria calculation were NEVER relegated to only one system for study. For many Christian Gematrist, English is used to calculate a numerical pattern involving increments of six applied to the 26 letter alphabet. This practice is known, of course, as English Gematria.
SIGNIFICANCE OF NUMBERS
Popular among many ancient peoples was the use of reading letters of an alphabet as numbers also, specifically this practice is believed to have begun in the ancient world of Mesopotamia, later this practice would come into use by the Greeks and then, around the same time, the Hebrews. One of the earliest known usage of Gematria occurred during the reign of Sargon II (Isaiah 20:1) between 722-705 B.C. In the 8th century BC, Sargon II, an Assyrian king, whose name means “the true king”, ordered the construction of a palace in present day Khorsabad in northern Iraq. Šarru-kên “legitimate king”, reigned 722 – 705 BC)
According to a cuneiform inscription found at the palace, the length of Sargon’s grand palatial walls, of Dur-Sharukin (House of Sargon), were built 16,280 Assyrian units, which corresponded to the numerical value of Sargon’s name. The Mesopotamian scholars, or sages of Sargon‘s era, treated numbers as a sign of the divine interconnectivity between the natural world, which they thought to be guided by the manifestations of nature, and the supernatural world, which is hidden and mysterious.
These sages of the ancient world sought to determine the value created when adding the numeric designation of letters and words, thus creating the ‘true’ value or ‘quality’ of the spoken word or letter. In ancient Mesopotamia, for example, numbers came to identify the value of divinity that Sumerian and Babylonian gods held, each god given a numerical designation which defined their persona (true quality).
Eurocentric secularist describe numerous gods, or deities, from the ancient period as if cultures just randomly invented these figures on a whim! In reality ALL of these ancient figures were claimed to have literally existed sometime during pre-history, they were of course later incorporated into the mythologies and legends of numerous other cultures with certain attributes or characteristics of real living kings, or previous known heroes. Every single deified figure, or god, of the Greeks, Romans, Hindo, and Egyptians follows the same pattern. In time the gods, or deities, of one culture were just conflated so they could reappear under a different name for a different culture. Below take a look at the Biblical deity Ba’al Hadad, and the value of his name as assigned via the ancient Mesopotamians.
God Of Mesopotamia & Their Numerical Value
Hadad = 6
The Babylonian and Assyrian god Hadad was known to the Sumerians as Ishkur, and is often shown with a wheel, a lion-dragon or a bull. Hadad is the god of storms. He was designated with the number six.
Sumerian God = Iskur
Amorite God = Baal Zephon
Akkadian God = Baal Ramman
Aramaic God = Rimmon
Hittite God = Teshub
Egyptian God = Set
Rigvedic God = Indra
Greek God = Zeus
Roman God = Jupiter
Pagan God = Woten
From the view of the ancients, so too in Judaism, for example, numbers are viewed as an integral part of understanding the divine. A visible token between the concrete (that is the physical world or realm) and God (also the spiritual realm) is known as an OT, which is Hebrew for symbol or sign. Since numbers concern the concrete, the revelation of identical numerical values of words or phrases which bear relation to one another or to the significance of the numerical value reached when calculated is viewed as an Ot, or sign of the divine. That is that numbers each hold a certain amount of significance and can demonstrate some interior quality of the word or phrase itself. This understanding of letters or words ascribes the numerical patterns demonstrated in Gematria to indicate importance.
EXAMPLE OF GEMATRIA
The most common and well known example of Gematria is the Hebrew word Chai (“living”, Hebrew Hai) which is both a symbol and word meaning “life”. In English the word Chai is pronounced ‘hi’, as though one were offering a friendly salutation. The word Chai consists of the Hebrew letters Chet (het n) and Yod. Applying a set system of Jewish Gematria (“Ragil” the basic method or “Mispar gadol” the Great Number method) to the Hebrew letters Chet ( which is given a value of 8) and Yud (which is given a value of 10) results in the calculated value of 18 or 10 + 8.
As a result of this Gematria find, the number eighteen is oft viewed as a positive sign or OT of “good luck”. In Judaism, the number 18 has come to represent the ‘good of things to come’, or “ life and good fortune‘. For this reason Jews oft wear charms or emblems which depict this popular symbol.
USAGE OF GEMATRIA
Falsehood Statement: The only method for Gematria use is Greek. = FASLE!
The ancient tradition of Gematria use, which assigns a numerological value to letters in an alphabet extends to all languages and has never been relegated to only one language. EVER! While Hebrew Gematria is the most known of this discipline, scholars consider Greek and Babylonian Gematria to predate it by many centuries. Babylonian Gematria is considered to date back to the 8th century B.C, where sages of the time employed a method of calculation seemingly based on increments of six and ten units, or measures, represented by the Sumerian cuneiform script.
The Assyrian form of Babylonian Gematria, seemingly based on larger increments of 210 each (the Gematria of the palace of Sargon = 16,280), likely correspond to the numerical pattern of smaller units of 6 and 10, by which is meant the formation of 10 Babylonian soldiers to 1 commander. If you were to utilize the number pattern of 210 for each letter in the English alphabet, you would find the correspondence to the ancient Gematria of Babylon, the name ‘Sargon’, for example, would thus equal 16,280. In English Gematria ‘Sargon’ equals 444. English Gematria system uses the patterns of 666, 888, 906, and 1110.
The Babylonians were thought to have employed a magic square of 111 x 6 to induce the powers of the cosmos to hex (Greek six, as in to create) or curse the forces of nature to submit to the will of a spiritual/symbolic Dragon/Saturn, preventing a spiritual attack of the air – demonic attack. By this magical incantation was developed the so-called Davidic Star, Sigilla Solis, and later the Philosopher’s Stone, all forms of ‘a magic hexagram’. Today users of the esoteric arts employ Magic Squares and Talismans called “Solomon’s Seals”, for Kabbalistic means and sometimes material gains with the numbers 60, and 66.
From textual evidence the practice of scholarly Gematria (Mystery School Gematria) is dated to around 70-200 CE, known as the Tannaic period.
For centuries Jewish scholars have used two forms of Gematria, the revealed form, a numeric form of hermeneutics which allows for the interpretation of the letters in a word according to their numerical value, and the mystic form, the search for the hidden meaning associated with every letter, word, and number. It is estimated that by the 10th century over 1 million persons possessed the knowledge of Gematria and were extensively applying this method of interpretation to as many as 6 languages including Spanish and Greek.
ORIGIN OF GEMATRIA
Falsehood Statement: Gematria Is Jewish ONLY In Origin Invented In Israel = FALSE
Gematria (gimatria, Hebrew gematriya) is considered to be between three or five thousand years old system of applying numerical values to the letters of an alphabet for the purpose of finding identical numerical values to religious or secular words, names, and phrases.
It is speculated that the word Gematria derived from the order of the Greek
alphabet, gamma being the third letter (gamma plus tria). Another possibility
is that the word Gematria derived from the Greek word geometria (earth-measure or earth measurement) from which the English word “geometry” derives. According to S. L. MacGregor Mathers, an occult practitioner and one of the founders of the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn, the word Gematria is a metathesis, or grammatical revision, of the Greek word ’Grammateia’ meaning tabulation as to denote in an organized fashion. In either case, it is rather likely that both geometria, (geometry) and “gamma + tria” had an influence on the formation of the word.
Sumerian 60 & Time
An hour has 60 minutes and a minute has 60 seconds because the Sumerians used a base 60 counting system. The number pattern of inducing sixes is today called ‘hex-craft’, and was first introduced via ancient ‘Bawru’, home to Black tribes of ancient Summer living in Babylon, who claimed to have been taught complex mathematics from a group of antediluvian beings called Apkallu (Abgal). Sexagesimal (base 60) is the numerical system of 60. English Gematria utilizes a base of 6. The numerical designation of the Sun god Shamash was sometimes the number 60, while the diety Hadad was shown with the number 6.
“The tablet, known as Plimpton 322, was discovered in the early 1900s in southern Iraq and has long been of interest to scholars. It contains 60 numbers organized into 15 rows and four columns inscribed on a piece of clay about 5 inches wide and 3.5 inches tall. It eventually entered the collection of George Arthur Plimpton, an American publisher, who later donated his collection to Columbia University.” – Kenneth Chang, New York Times
In the mythical origin of Gematria, the biblical King Nimrod (Gilgamesh) had established his authority in the land of Sumer, which was also known as ‘the land of the black head people’ – SUMERIAN Sa’gig’ga. These people, believed to be black Sumerians, (Bawru) developed all sciences and knowledge of the ancient world including arithmetic and geometry, as well as the discovery of the wheel and the formation of city-state government. These methods of civilization would later travel to the Egyptians, then Greeks, through the Chaldeans. In ancient texts the historians record various legends which state the Bawru learned of these advances from the Apkallu (also known as Seven Sages, or Earth Elohim), while Sumerian epics state these advances were taught to the Chaldeans from containers of knowledge called prsu (Sumerian MES, Akkadian NE/Parsu). Gnostics and Christians later viewed these ancient sages as ‘fallen angels’, while Alternative Historians claim these beings were ancient aliens.
“The Book of Enoch says that fallen angels brought mankind various types of knowledge that were not known up until that time. These included the making of swords and knives, shields and breastplates; the knowledge of metals and the working of them; making bracelets and ornaments and applying makeup; costly stones and coloring tinctures; enchantments and root cuttings; astrology, the constellations and clouds; the signs of the earth, sun and moon.” – Sharon K. Grossman
“It was Ham and his four Negro sons, Cush, Mizraim, Phut and Canaan, who developed the world’s first industrious and sophisticated civilizations. They invented the wheel, math, the alphabet, astronomy, science, architect, navigation, irrigation, agriculturem sculpture and the textile industry; knowledge which was later transmitted to Greece and Rome.” – Dr. John L. Johnson
Sumerians created numerous maps of the stars and invented a form of Babylonian Gematria, based on units of 6 and 60, with larger increments of 210 each (which corresponded to the Sumerian military units of 10 soldiers to one commander).
“The stele indicates that Sumerian troops fought in phalanx formation, organized six files deep with an eight-man front, a formation similar to that used later in Archaic Greece. The Sumerians used both the decimal and sexagesimal system based on multiples of six (they were the first to divide an hour into sixty minutes), and most probably, the organization of the army was based on multiples of 6, 60, 120, and so on.” – Happy W, Sumer To Sargon
This numerical system sought to find a ‘true persona’ or quality of a divine nature (kinship) between Kings and Elohim magistrates (also known as stars/angels, and gods/demigods). This sexagesimal system of Babylon represented the numerical equivalent of kingship, or the Gematria of his name, while a system that incorporated the number 5 was utilized for female consorts or feminine deities.
METHODS OF CALCULATION
In Judaism the two primary methods for calculating the Hebrew alphabet are the Basic or Normal method, known as the “Ragil Method”, and the Great Number method, known as the “Mispar Gadol Method”.
Applying the Ragil method to the twenty two letters in the Hebrew alphabet results in a numeric value of 1 to 10 consecutively for the first ten letters of the alphabet, while the next eight equal from 20 to 90 in intervals of ten, while the last four letters equal 100, 200, 300 and 400 respectively. The Mispar gadol method counts the final form of letters of the Hebrew alphabet as a continuation of the alphabet (500, 600, 700, 800, 900)
The English Gematria method of applying the number 6 to each letter of the alphabet was developed by J.R. Church, and was based on the 6 and 60 pattern of the Assyrian/Babylonian Gematria method.
The numbers of import for this system are 444, 666, 888, and 1110.
In ancient Mesopotamia, for example, numbers came to identify the value of divinity that Sumerian and Babylonian gods held, each god (Earthly Elohim) given a numerical designation which defined their persona (true quality). This is why the English phrase ‘A Gilgames’ as well as ‘A Nimrod’ are equal to 444 in English Gematria – it signifies their ability to rule as ‘true kings’, and why in Babylonian Gematria the legitimate king ‘Sargon’ is equal to 16,280, while in English Gematria his name is equal to 444.
The number 444, in English Gematria can best be associated to things related to: ruling authority, kingship, and things or phrases of ‘goodness’, might, or power. 444 is found in various other words or phrases, however, the interpretation of this number is that it usually coincides with things of an authentic ruling nature, an extreme power, or a hidden knowledge. The number 400 appears in 15 Biblical verses, but nowhere is there a mention of the number 444.
If you applied the increments of 210 to each letter of the English Alphabet (A = 210, B = 420, C= 630) you will reach the same result that King Sargon II discovered. This pattern of 444 in English and 16,280 in Babylonian represent a ‘true quality’ of divine right to rule. Which is why so many ancient texts ask the following question: “Who is like the king?, Whose name means king?”, Who was born with the name king?” These questions refer to the Gematria of the name of the king, which of course is symbolic of his ‘divine right’ to rule a nation. In the ancient tradition it was Elohim, or gods, which passed down the right to rule, allocated to a leader they saw as worthy of kinship, these were the anointed ones. Thus the Hebrews were anointed to be king. The Seven Sages of Mesopotamia – The Apkullas, were fish-like. These fish-like beings named the heir of the kingdoms their fish. Thus this term came to be used by the ancient Hebrews who referred to their heirs as ‘fish’. The names of Lucifer as well as Jesus in English Gematria are equal to 444, while in Sumerian/Babylonian these are equal to 16,280. The name Lucifer means ‘bearer of light’, while it also is symbolic of an angel of light (Venus/stars) which are symbolic of ‘princes of light’. Rulers and kings – The Kingship – the name Lucifer is a kinship name of a prince. The name Jesus is the kinship of The Supreme God, our Heavenly Father. The TRUE KING is Christ. While the Earthly kings, appointed by ‘divine right’ are the magistrates by anointed approval under the Christian conception.

The number 666, in English Gematria can best be associated to things related to: mankind, stubbornness, falsehoods, lies, and hexcraft, or things or phrases of ‘evil, and either a willful display of manipulative tendency or capable of creating a man/beast calculation. 666 is found in various other words or phrases, however, the interpretation of this number is that it usually coincides with things of humanity, sinful or corrupt nature. The number 666 appears in 4 Biblical verses, most important of which is: Revelation 13:18 Wisdom is needed here. Let the one with understanding solve the meaning of the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man. His number is 666.
