    The name Elohim adds up to the number 86, which equals the value of the word hateva . This equivalence leads to the conclusion that Elohim refers to the divine presence as it manifests in the physical world, as opposed to the name YHVH, which connects to the heavenly universe. Sefer Yetzirah, the earliest kabbalistic text, believed to have been written in the 2nd century CE, was the first kabbalistic text to elaborate a system of gematria. This text is concerned with God’s creation of the universe through the powers of the Hebrew alphabet, and with the permutations of God’s name. The mystic practitioner could, it was believed, use this knowledge to harness the powers of creation. Sefer Yetzirah supposedly contains the instructions to create a golem, the legendary creature made out of mud, popularized by the Maharal of Prague in the 19th century. Presumably the use of the Phoenician alphabet on Alexander Jannaeus’ coins was simulating the First-Temple biblical letterset, which had been in place hundreds of years earlier. This coin uses a circular O for the letter Samek S when writing the name AlekSander instead of the three lined $ used in the Phoneician alphabet. This is an influence of the Assyrian Aramaic font ס which was used as Samek at the time in official documents and day to day use. Sometimes, the names of the vowels are spelled out and their gematria is calculated using standard methods. A single word can yield several values depending on the cipher which is used. To use the calculator above, simply enter the word or phrase you want to calculate.
