If you are new to Gematria let me explain what its all about, so if you would like to understand it/use it yourself you may do so. Lets start with the VERY basics below.

How Do You Pronounce Gematria

How Do You Pronounce Gematria?

You can pronounce ‘Gematria’ with a G sound, OR by using the Gah sound. ‘Gah-mat-tria’, which is a common pronunciation via the Jewish users of this system. While the G sound – ‘Gee’ is due to users of this practice comparing the discipline to its origins via Sacred Geometry or Geography. Gamma being the third letter of the Greek alphabet and TRIA representing Earth measures and the number three. Either pronunciation is fine.

Where Did Gematria Come From?

The original system of Gematria is between 5,000-10,000 years old. Ancient legends describe Seven Earthly Elohim (Annunaki sometimes known as Dagon or Apkallu), appearing out of the sea near Babylon to explain the use of Gematria to the Black Tribes of Sumer called Bawru, or Sag-gig-ga. The later Gnostics called these beings Fallen Angels, while the UFO meme calls them Aliens. They were said to have brought with them containers of knowledge called MES from the tree of knowledge which grew in the Abyss, the MES were represented via cones. MES contained instructions, like a how-to-guide or tutorial. One of the figures, or angels, was known as Barack, which is where President Obama gets his first name. The Sumerians also called these beings The Seven Sages. Below you can see them depicted with their MES Cones.

MES = 222
MES from Tree = 1110
MES Cone = 444
Apkallu = 444

Sumerian Cuneifom Writting

Who Was First To Use Gematria?

When Gematria came into use around 5,000 – 10,000 years ago the words of the Sumerians were shown as numbers and thus overtime EACH and EVERY culture in the ancient period was assigned a numerical basis for their alphabet and the numbering patterns and ciphers were decoded EVEN for cultures that did not have a numbering system at first. According to the legend, a scribe named Enmerkar was the first human to write, and his first word was a coniform symbol meaning Nail – as in he nailed the Kings opposition to the wall via the word. Enmerkar would later become a King himself and is said to have lived for 420 or 900 years. Enmerkar ruled over Sumerian territory and is responsible for building a wall around it to protect it from illegals. His chief general of his armies was Lugalbanda, who is called Cush in the Holy Bible. Lugalbanda was known as the Shepherd King and fathered Gilgamesh, known as Nimrod in the Bible. Nimrod was the result of a marriage between Hathor, the Cow goddess of Egypt, and Lugalbanda of Sumer. Nimrod later became the builder of the city of Sumer and erected the Tower of Babel. Years later the great king Sargon would rule over Babylon and unite much of the kingdoms.  Enmerkar is credited as the first person to develop writing – his invention cuneiform. Sargon is credited with adopting the use of Gematria to be shown via his grand palace of Sargon.
Enmerkar Scribe First Human To Write Words  What Is The First Known Use Of Gematria?

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)

Sargon Gematria King ListAccording 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.

Why Were The Ancients Doing Gematria?

Since the time of the ancients, the persons of importance such as Princes and Kings had their names calculated and shown to correspond to certain numbers which ‘revealed’ their true persona. The ‘true persona’ of a King/Prince revealed their so-called right to rule or Kingship. It gave them the numerical pattern or designation of ‘true king’ or rightful heir.
This happens to be the case for ancient king Sargon, who when calculated was given the number 16,280, OR written in English/Sumerian Gematria as the number 444. A = 120 in Sumerian, as A = 6 in English/Sumerian Gematria. Rulers and Kings are equal to a numerical pattern that is often revealed with the signature of 444. See example below:

TRUE KINGS & Princes / Rulers

The King = 444
Ruler = 444
Sargon = 444
A Nimrod = 444
Bilgames = 444
Messiah = 444
Jesus = 444
Aragorn = 444


At the end of The Lord of the Rings, Aragorn was crowned as the True King of Gondor. His right to rule was hidden throughout, yet later revealed. The gematria of his name is 444, or 16,280 in Sumerian.

Greek To Hebrew Learning And Gematria

Is Gematria Only For Greek or Hebrew?

In the ancient period, some one million persons possessed the knowledge of Gematria usage and applied it to OVER six languages including: Hebrew, Sumerian, Greek, Roman, Spanish, Yiddish, & eventually English. The common misconception most people have is that Gematria was only used in Hebrew, yet this is FALSE. Gematria use was NEVER relegated to only one language. EVER. At any point in the ancient past when a known language was in use, scribes and elders would use ciphers and Gematria to decode the words and phrases of that language. It is assumed that an Egyptian based Gematria system was lost in the fire of Alexandria.

What Is A Famous Example Of Gematria?

Young lovers in Greece and Rome used Gematria to express their relationships. For example, one inscription on a wall in Pompeii once read, “I love the girl whose number is 545.” This was a matter of using Gematria to showcase that the number of the persons name was understood by the ‘lover’. The name of the girl was “Phanessa”. In Greek Gematria the name ‘Phanessa’ equals 545.

How Can I Practice Gematria?

I would recommend using the multi cipher online calculator:


Go to the website shown above, and practice inputting words into the calculator for Gematria finds. For additional information on the topic you can see my post here on Gematria.Codes below:



The long format English Gematria ciphers and short form are the most utilized systems today for English decoders of Gematria. Since in Israel everyone is taught Gematria alongside Math, it is an understood format to display hidden numerical significance between our words and phrases. To understand the simple version of this we will look at the first lesson of Gematria called Chai/Hai :

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.

hebrew gematria hai symbol meaning 18

Hebrew Chai 18 Life gematria

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. In English Gematria the word Hai is connected to 18 as well.

The Numbers Patterns In English Gematria

Here is a very short example of the connecting numbers most oft found in Gematria.

222 – Usually locations or things that connect like things or places.

444 – Having to do with connections. When found around a name it can symbolize the person as bearing the title of Prince, or King. Having to do with true kingship or rule. This 444 pattern also shows things having connection.

666 – Having to do with negative connotations. 666 appears as a lie, or falsehood, as well as the identification of things dealing in money, evil, or deception. 666 is also a connecting number pattern.

888 – Having to do with two things connected. English Gematria = 888

906 – Often has to do with verification, truth, or reality.

1110 – Having to do with concepts, ideas, or thoughts that exist.

These are the numbers that are best exemplified in the system as connecting phrases or words. They often show up when connected to two things which are alike or show importance to being with one another.

Negative Connotations In Gematria

Mark Of Beast = 666
Monsanto = 666
Demonic Evil = 666
Los Haa Satan = 666
Witchcraft = 666

In Gematria the words and phrases you find may link together to showcase similarities.

So lets look at a linking word in Long Format Gematria:

An Masonic Code: ALGDGADLU = 1110

This is the code of the upper tier Masonic practice. It is understood as: ‘A la Gloire du Grand Achitecte de l’Universe’. Translated as ‘To the glory of the Grand Arhcitect of the Universe’. In Masonic terms G.A.O.T.U. is the Demiurge Creator of the Universe or GOAT. Greatest of All Time.

Think “Isis Ra and El” which equals 666 (ISRAEL) – Connect Isis Ra And El = 1110

What If My Name Equals 666 Is This Bad??

Not really. Names and Phrases that have a tendency to equal 666 are often negative connotations, however names are also Anagrams very often standing for some other word or phrase. Also names are just conflated phrases based on Religious concepts and Beings in the ancient period. Imagine a secularist telling you their name is Michael Chistof, and then stating they are an Atheist. Yet their name MEANS “I walk with God/Deity for and of Christ.” Yet the reality is they like so many people are ignorant.

Canaanite God El = 666

English Gematria is also an anagram of ‘Sheltering A Magi‘ which both equal 888.



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.

a OT = Represents an aspect or reminder that Gematria use is divine calculation or a divine interactivity between the written word and the number. In essence that synchronicity is not always a coincidence.

A OT + A Divine Interactivity = 888 (Primes)


Full + Single (9+9) = 18
Full + Single KV (9+9) = 18
Reverse Full = 18
Reverse Full EP = 18
English Ordinal = 3+6 + Francis Bacon 3+6 = 9+9 = 18
English Extended = 2+6+1 + Franc Baconis = 7+2 = 9+9 =18


Gematria Basics

The most common and well known example of Gematria is the Hebrew word hai (“meaning life”, chai) which is both a symbol and word meaning “living”. In English the word hai is pronounced ‘hi’, as though one were offering a friendly salutation. The word hai consists of the Hebrew letters Chet (het n) and Yod (Yud). 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 pronounced ‘kate, and Yud (which is given a value of 10) results in the calculated value of 18 or 10 + 8 = 18.


HAI = Life, the word hai is considered a sign or ‘A OT’, due to the nature of the Gematria found in the word.

H 8th letter / A 1st letter / I 9th letter
8 + 1 + 9 = 18

Hai = 18 Full
Hai = 108 (Sumerian) or 10+8 = 18
Hai = 378 (Reverse Sumerian) 3+7+8 = 18

The number eighteen is thus not only seen as an allegory or symbol of life but also of good fortune and luck. The number 1 stands next to the number 8, which when placed on its side resembles the symbol for infinity. For this purpose the number 18 represents a basic structure of life and the theological dogma of the so-called “age of accountability”.

The concept of the age of accountability is based on the belief that a young child is covered by God’s grace until he becomes spiritually or self aware of the totality of rights and wrongs and sins and life. The self awareness of sins is thought not to apply to children, thus when an adult person dies their spirit is thought to leave the body and enter whatever condition their conscious self has chosen for an afterlife.


In Jewish traditions it is thought the beginning of Religious understanding occurs at age 5, while the knowledge develops further at age 8. The period of time between this transition is 3 years. Although not listed as a so-called accountability age, rather examples of the ages of 15 and 18 are. At age 18 a Jewish person is thought ready to embark on the better half of their life, as well as ready for marriage. Around the world many cultures recognize the age of 18, including the USA, as the age of maturity and accountability. Below is a list of certain legal rights and responsibilities that are bestowed upon 18 year old’s in the USA.

1.) Voting Rights
2.) Join Military
3.) Blood Donation
4.) Full Time Worker
5.) Gambling (most states allow 18, some 21)
6.) Lottery
7.) Drivers License Rights (states vary)
8.) Purchase Tobacco (states laws vary)
9.) Sexual Consent
10) Purchase Or View Some Adult Content
11) Purchase House
12) Purchase Medication
13) Purchase Fireworks
14) Purchase Land
15) Charged As Adult In Crimes
16) Register For Draft
17) Purchase And Own Vehicles
18) Legally Change Name
19) Own & Purchase Firearms (states vary)
20) Adopt Children Or Pets
21) Register For The Draft
22) Be Selected For Jury Duty
23) Loans And Credit
24) Investment Rights (states vary)
25) Marriage (states vary)


In Jewish tradition the prayer known as the ‘Amidah’, is also called ‘the 18’. In Septenary Gematria ‘Amidah’ equals 18. While in Sumerian this word equals 216 or 2 + 16 = 18. Also in Reverse Sumerian you find it equal to 756 or 7+5+6 = 18. The ‘Amidah’ is an 18 line prayer blessing.


Adult = 18 (Chaldean)
Age Of Adults = 666 (6 + 6 + 6) = 18
Age Of Accountability = 81 (18) 1134 11+3+4 = 18
378 = 3+7+8 = 18

In Jewish tradition the 18th birthday and other life events, including certain rites of passage, and weddings or expressing condolences may mean gifting others in the amount of $18. The act of giving, gifting or donating $18 or a multiples, such as in the double ‘hai’ of $36, is commonly referred to as “giving chai.”, or “giving hai”. Symbolically, these gestures are representative of giving a gift of ‘life”, while acknowledging the Gematria of the word.


Free Masonry & Gematria Architecture  

Gematria is used, and has ALWAYS been applied, in the construction and architecture of buildings, monuments, and structures with detail paid close attention to the numerical Gematria of a persons name, a word, or a phrase. This hidden code is applied to nearly every street, every city, and every center of worship. This secret method is also known as sacred geometry. Since the ancient period, roughly 5,000 years ago, the palace grounds of king Sargon were calculated and crafted due to the Gematria of his name – 16,280. When the palatial walls of Babylon were constructed they were endowed with hidden attributes based on the sacred number of the king. This aspect of Gematria usage is what is behind the creation of nearly all monuments in the USA. In Israel, for example, Gematria is taught in school, along with math and algebra. The understanding of this is LOST on the general public. Yet, figures of the upper-tier elite, including the ‘Free Masonic order’, as well as Jewish architects, have for centuries crafted numerous buildings based on Gematria!


“The number’s (18) celebratory meaning has even been confirmed in present-day architecture, as is shown by Daniel Libeskind’s Contemporary Jewish Museum in San Francisco, whose plan is based on the upbeat slogan, “To Life!” (“l’chaim!”), and features a hall graced with 36 windows (or “double chai”).” – Forward.com

By the Middle Ages numbers had acquired a metaphysical significance of their own, and were thought to be endowed with occult power so you had upper-tier masons and Jewish architects incorporate Gematria into their structures, this practice continues to the day.
