THE NUMBER FOR EACH LETTER
After learning your sofit letters is a perfect time to learn
I will teach you three of the most common and most frequently
used methods of Hebrew numbering and math.
These are Mispar Katan, Mispar Ragil and Mispar Gadol
The word Mispar means "properly named" in Hebrew.
The Hebrew word Katan means small or tiny; Ragil means regular
or common and Gadol means large or giant.
The Katan method is easy because it is simply three rows of
numbers 1-9, 1-9 and 1-9 sofit letters are appended in their
proper order at the end to complete the row.
In this method we count Dagesh letters equally and sofit letters
get small numbers: First count to 9 (this ends with Tet).
Now continue the Aleph-Bet counting to 9 again (this ends
with Tsade). Now count the remaining four letters which ends
with Tav. To complete your task, add the sofit letters and
you will end with 9 again for the third row. Dagesh letters
keep the same number.
this method you simply count from one to nine, then you continue
by 10's until you get to 100, then count by 100's.
Just as with the Katan method shown above, Dagesh letters
get the same values as their counterparts.
However, here with Mispar Ragil the Sofit letters are placed
next to their counterparts and then numbered alike.
The Katan method shown previously gives the Sofit letters
smaller numbers then their counterparts.
In the list below I show the sofit letters and Dagesh sounds
with the same number as their counter parts, to help aid you
visually for memory sake.
Mispar Gadol is likely going to be the easiest for you.
This is because it makes more common sense to most people.
Just as in the regular method (Ragil) we have 1-9, 10-90 and
100-400; Only here we complete the row counting in 100's and
finish the row with 900.
Most awesome, because we keep in tune with revelation of God's
TRUTH (Hebrew Emet) as in the number nine, which you will
learn more about later.
Everything else here is the same as the other methods when
coming to Dagesh and numbering them with their counterparts.
Also noteworthy is that the Mispar Gadol is the exact same
as the Mispar Katan method, if you cross out all of the 0's.
THE MISPAR GADOL FLASHCARDS
you practice the Mispar Gadol flashcards in the Flashcard
Kit, you should be able to incorporate the differences in
the other Gematria methods easily later.
Always learn one method well first before trying to understand
is also important to learn each step in this book in order
so that you can understand and build on to what you have learned.
Could you imagine how hard it would be to learn these numbers,
if you had not first learned the Aleph-Bet and how to recognize
It would not be likely that anyone would easily accomplish
Always learn each of these steps well before moving forward!
Now that you can ID each letter, try working with the numbers
a row at a time.
However, if you find this more difficult, cut them in half
or in smaller pieces (but be sure that they line up well on
both sides as you cut them up).
I have also added a set of flashcards for standard numbering,
with notes for the sofit letter numbering for Gadol.
This set may help you start to visualize more seeing that
you would need to think of what the letters would look, like
as well as which letters have sofit forms.
