“And the Earth” (Genesis 1:1) Delivers the First Seven Decimal Digits of Pi

In Genesis 1:1, two words only relate to the physical world. Are these hiding the first seven decimal digits of Pi??

First ten digits of Pi are: 3.141592653… (Last digit not rounded).

The first verse of the Hebrew Bible (Genesis 1:1) is:

בְּרֵאשִׁית בָּרָא אֱלֹהִים אֵת הַשָּׁמַיִם וְאֵת הָאָרֶץ.

In this post, we address the relationship between Pi and the only two biblical Hebrew words of Genesis 1:1 relating to the physical world (marked in red), namely: “And the Earth”.

We have written several posts about the relationships between Pi and the first verse of the Bible, as revealed in Oren Evron research work (for example, here1, here2, here3). In this post we add another finding of our own, relating to Gematria values of the seven letters comprising the two words.

As explained and demonstrated elsewhere (here2), there are two types of Gematria values: regular Gematria and small Gematria. The latter is traditionally defined in Jewish scholarship as the sum total of the Gematria values of individual letters comprising the word, with the zeros deleted; for example, the letter Yod (10) is counted as 1, the letter Resh (200) as 2 and so on.

Let us examine small Gematria of the seven letters comprising the two marked words :

First letter: 6 (letter “ו”); Second letter: 1 (letter “א”); Third letter: 4 (letter “ת”, value of 400 in regular Gematria); Fourth letter: 5 (letter “ה”); Fifth letter:1 (letter “א”); Sixth letter: 2 (letter “ר”, value of 200 in regular Gematria); Seventh letter: 9 (letter “ץ”, value of 90 in regular Gematria).

Here are the two sequences, side by side:

Pi: {1, 4, 1, 5, 9, 2, 6};   Genesis 1:1: {6, 1, 4, 5, 1, 2, 9}.

Note that, ignoring the first digit in Genesis 1:1 (“6”), the remaining three pairs of digits preserve same order as in Pi.

The Probability/Statistics oriented reader is challenged to calculate the probability of this finding happening by chance…

(hint: total possible number of such sequences is nine to the power of 7, namely, 4.8 millions!)

I always come back here to see new discoveries. I wanted to see some statistics about the relationship between terrestrial fauna and the laws of food purity: how amazing that in the desert G-d delimited the relationship of characteristics of each clean animal and so far no one has been able to prove otherwise.


Indeed amazing! You may subscribe to my blog and get notifications of new posts. Thank you for the comment.
