11. Structure chapter 1.

Gen.1:1-31

The verses, words and letters of the first chapter of the bible appear to be divided with the numbers 3 and 7. These are the numbers that play a main roll in building up the table of Perfect Primes. The division of the 31 verses of the first chapter is as follows:

3 - 7 - (3x7) verses

3+7+21=31 verses

The third group of 21 verses gets its information out of the two other groups. The first group of three verses is telling us something about the number of words; these verses contain namely 3x3x3=27 words. The second group of seven verses is telling us something about the number of letters; these seven verses contain 7x7x7=343 letters. These two groups tell us about the number of words and letters in the third group of 21 verses, but that asks some insight of the reader in the biblical arithmetic. To get that insight we better look to the first verse of the bible. I will explain some simple mathematical issues:

Gen.1:1

The seven words of this verse contain 28 letters of which the first word contains 6 letters. Both numbers 28 and 6 are triangular numbers, respectively from 7 and 3 (1+2+3+4+5+6+7=28 and 1+2+3=6) These two numbers are also Perfect Numbers, that to say: the sum of the dividers of a number is equal to that number. The dividers of 28 are: 1, 2, 4, 7 and 14, so the sum is: 1+2+4+7+14=28.

 

The dividers of 6 are: 1, 2 and 3, the sum is 1+2+3=6. But there is something special with this number for the multiplication of the dividers is 6 too:

1+2+3=6=1x2x3

We might call six a Super Perfect Number. Besides that is the triangular number of six 21 or 3x7. This is also the number of the letters of the phrase: ‘In the beginning God created the heaven’. Until there the digits of the number Pi, calculated with Gen.1:1, are correct (see the circle and the time).

Now tells the first verse something about the division of the first three verses. This can be made visible with the ‘prime jump’. The first verse has 28 letters. The 28th prime is 103 (P28=103) The last letter of Gen.1:3 is letter 103, so it is the measure of the letters of the first three verses. This is the 27th word of the bible and starts on its own prime (P27=101).

Verse three has 6 words. This is equal to the triangular counting of the verse numbers of the first group of three verses: 1+2+3=6. This parallel can also to be found in the second group of seven verses (Gen.1:4-10) The last verse of this group has 49 letters. This is equal to the triangular counting of the verse numbers of those seven verses: 4+5+6+7+8+9+10=49.

With a double prime jump the number of words in the third group (21 verses) gets pin-pointed:

P6=11    and   P11=29

Triangle 6=21 and 11x29=319

Group 3 has 21 verses and 319 words

The second group is telling something about the number of letters in the third group. The sum 49 of the seven verse numbers provides the possibility to calculate the number of letters in the third group, for the triangular number of 49 is 1225:

Triangle of 49 is 1225 (see fig. above)

Group 3 has 1225 letters

We see that the number of verses out of the first and second group is determining for the number of letter and words of the third group. The sum of the verse numbers of the third group (Gen.1:11-31) is:

11+12+13+14+15+16+17+18+19+20+21+22+23+24+25+26+27+28+29+30+31=441

441 is the number of the truth and also the sum of the 30 numbers in the table of the Perfect Primes. In the first two groups the counting of the verse numbers had a relation with the last verse out of each group. In this situation it's not the case, anyway I don't see the relation. But there is something else. In the sequence above of verse 11 till verse 31, verse 21 is the central verse. The gematria of this verse is 5834(2x2917) This number has a relation with the table of Perfect Primes.

Sum 18=2x9

Sum 423

Sum 441

The sum of the Super Perfect Primes and their appointers is: (1+2+3)+(1+2+3)+(1+2+3)=18, which 2x32 or 2x9 is. So it are (3x3=)9 numbers that have the number value of 2x9. This double character is brought over to the group of (3x7=)21 numbers. The sum of these 21 numbers is 423. If we count the digits of this number to its reduced number, we find: 4+2+3=9.

 

The distance of 423 till the ‘truth’, ameth (441) is 18(or 2x9) The truth of a number can be expressed by the prime of that number. So the truth of 423 is in this case 2917. Because the sum of the digits of 423 is nine and the truth can be reached by 18(2x9) the ‘truth’ of this number gets doubled: 2917+2917=5834. This is the number value of verse 21.

 

I cannot directly verify if there is also a relation between the structure of the text (gematria, letters, words, verses, chapters, books) and the content of the text. Possibly this structure has a similar function as the structure in a sonnet.

A sonnet is build up out of fourteen verse lines, separated in two parts (for instance: two strophes of four and two of three lines. Or one strophe of twelve lines and one of two lines) In its original form, the Italian sonnet was divided into an octave followed by a sestet. The octave stated a proposition and the sestet stated its solution with a clear break between the two. Though Giacomo da Lentini octave rhymed a-b-a-b, a-b-a-b it became later a-b-b-a, a-b-b-a. For the sestet there were two different possibilities, c-d-e-c-d-e and c-d-c-c-d-c. In time, other variants on this rhyming scheme were introduced. Typically, the ninth line created a turn or volta, which signaled the change in the topic or tone of the sonnet.

I mention this so it will be less strange in our eyes that we can find an under laying structure in the bible. Where this has a more rhythmical function in a sonnet, there are more mathematical structures present in the bible.

These mathematical structures are probably used because mathematical realities are unchangeable and undeniable and therefore they represent the truth.

It will take some time before we have a more complete insight in the building up of these structures, for they are much more complex then in poetry.

Now I have to explain the number of words of the second group with seven verses. There are 88 words in this group. The factors of 88 are 8(2x2x2)and 11. These numbers we have find. And these numbers have to come out of the first group for that group is about words. For the 11 this is quite simple for the 6th prime is 11.

 

For the eight it's more complicated. But because six is a Super Perfect Number there are two possibilities to make the six: 1+2+3=6 and 1x2x3=6. With these two sixes the square of six can be formed: 6x6=36. But 36 is also the triangle of 8 (1+2+3+4+5+6+7+8=36). This 8 is the other factor. Moreover the 28 units of the triangle of seven can be connected by 36 triangles. In this way we have found the factors for the number of 88 words of the seven verses. With this a part of the structure in the first chapter has become visible.

Like I have made a table of Perfect Primes so we can make also a table of Triangular numbers (T) In the numerical sequence (n) we look also for the triangular numbers and we give them a number (nPT=number Perfect Triangle) There are 6 Perfect Triangular numbers in the sequence of 27. The sum of these six Perfect Triangles is:

1+6+21+55+120+231=434

434 is the number of words of the first chapter. The triangular counting of the first three verse numbers (1+2+3=6) appeared to be determining for the number of words in the second and third group verses. The 434 words describe the six days of creation.

434 is the number value of the word door, daleth,  , 400+30+4=434. The first chapter of Genesis is the door through which we enter the bible.

The group of six Perfect Triangles that have together the sum 434, become vertical closed by the numbers 6, 21 en 231. The sum of these numbers is 6+21+231=258 or 3x86.

This is a kind of trinity confirmation by Elohim, by 86. I have found two other ways of the confirmation by 86, by God. If we count the factors of the words in the three groups of verses, than is the sum 86:

27+(8+11)+(11+29)=86

outline is 86

When we count the words of the three groups together than we have the 434 words of the first chapter. We can express that number 434 as a rectangle of 14 by 31 units. The outline is 86. This leaves for the center 434-86=348. This is the number value of the word: , 2+300+6+40=348, seat, dwelling place (Ez.28:2) 434 can express the  ‘dwelling place of God’, =86+348=434. Chapter one is the door of the Creation and the door to the Word of God. Apart from that is the number value of  'the door', , 400+30+4+5=439. This happens to be the 86th prime.

 

Elohim is also connected with 434 in an other way. In the foregoing example 86 units enclose the 434. This enclosure can also be expressed by using the mem sophit, . The number value of Elohim becomes then: 600+10+5+30+1=646. When we look for all dividers of 646, the number itself excluded, then that are: 1, 2, 17, 19, 34, 38 and 323. The sum of all the possible dividers is:

1+2+17+19+34+38+323=434

An other phenomenon can be found by taking for the digits of 434 the word numbers and fill in the CV's of word 4, 3 and 4:

434

word 3

888

The result is: 888, , Jesus is the door. This is according to verse John 10:9:

'I am the door: by me if any man enter in, he shall be saved, and shall go in and out, and find pasture'.
