# "Ragil" - "Mispar Gadol" - "Millui" & ”HaKadmi”

ABOUT GEMATRIA AND HEBREW CHARACTERS

AND THE NUMERIC VALUES

Gematria is the substitution of numbers, or other letters,

for letters of the Hebrew alphabet, according to a set

system. The purpose is to derive insights into the

sacred writings, or to obtain interpretations of the text.

"Ragil" (רגיל)

Of the twenty two letters in the Hebrew alphabet,

The first nine are numbered consecutively from 1 to 9,

The next nine from 10 to 90 in intervals of ten, while

the last four letters equal 100, 200, 300 and 400

respectively. This metod is the basis for all other

methods. Each letter of the alphabet has its own

numerical value. The numerical value of a word or

phrase is the sum of the numerical value of all its

letter. For example שלום Shalom equals 376,

(ש = 300, ל = 30, ו = 6, ם = 40),

300 + 30 + 6 + 40 = 376.

"Mispar Gadol" (מיספר גדול)

In "Mispar Gadol" method counts the final form of

letters of the alphabet as a continuation of the alphabet

(ך = 500, ם = 600, ן = 700, ף = 800, ץ = 900). In all the

other letters have the same value as their normal form

(e.g. כ = 20, מ = 40).

"Millui" (מלוי)

Each letter has the numerical value of the sum of

the"Ragil" values of all the letters that make up the

names of the letter. For example א Alef  (אלף) has

the value of 111, because א = 1, ל = 30, פ = 80,

1 + 30 + 80 = 111.

Each letter has its Ragil value plus the HaKadmi,

(accumulated), value of the letter preceding it.

א = 1, ב = 3 (1 + 2), ג = 6 (1 + 2 + 3).

For example ישראל Israel equals 2051,

because י = 55, ש = 1095, ר = 795, א = 1, ל = 105,

55 + 1095 + 795 + 1 + 105 = 2051.
