What is Gematria?

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. Of the twenty two letters in the Hebrew alphabet, the first ten are numbered consecutively from 1 to 10, the next eight from 20 to 90 in intervals of ten, while the last four letters equal 100, 200, 300 and 400 respectively. This is the basic calculation from which, during the course of the centuries.

"Ragil" BASIC or NORMAL

This method 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 letters.

"Mispar gadol"

GREAT NUMBER method, which counts the final form of letters of the alphabet as a continuation of the alphabet (500, 600, 700, 800, 900, refer to http://www.kolumbus.fi/gematria/characte.htm ). In all the other Gematria screens in the program these letters have the same value as their normal form (20, 40, 50, 80, 90).

"Millui" (FULFILL?)

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. You can also read more from: http://www.kolumbus.fi/gematria/numeric.htm (from THE MOST GENERAL WAYS TO CALCULATE)
