    Eight is a number of completion and the rites of circumcision are performed on the eighth day of life and is thought to be protective against Lilith. Three, on the other hand, is unsurpassed as a number occurring most often in magical texts. Despite Naḥmanides’ attempt to limit its use, gematria found its way into the biblical commentary. The Pane’aḥ Raza by Isaac ben Judah ha-Levi (late 13th century) and Ba’al ha-Turim by Jacob ben Asher (c. 1270 to 1340) both make frequent use of gematria. Indeed, gematria became a staple element in kabbalistic literature. For example, the 17th-century work, Megalleh Amukkot, by Nathan Nata ben Solomon Spira, uses gematria extensively. The followers of Shabbetai Zevi used gematria as proof of his messianism. This website is licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike 4.0 International License.

Finally there is English Gematria which assigns a numerical value based on the English alphabet (1-26). Again this system can be applied just like any other type of Gematria but produces different results due to its unique numbering system. The decoder will then display list of words with a similar English simple gematria value and English Jewish gematria value. Now that you have the gematria, or value of a word, you have to do some research about what that number means.

Those who identify Abraham’s trained men with his servant Eliezer on the basis of the numerical value of the latter’s name are indulging in Midrash, as Scripture does not speak in gematria (numericals). With this type of interpretation one can interpret any name as he wishes, both in a positive and a negative manner. While gematria was used periodically in the Talmud and Midrash, it was not central to rabbinic literature.
