Sometimes the same operation is applied two or more times recursively. Mispar Katan Mispari integral reduced value is used where the total numerical value of a word is reduced to a single digit. If the sum of the value exceeds 9, the integer values of the total are repeatedly added to produce a single-digit number. The same value will be arrived at regardless of whether it is the absolute values, the ordinal values, or the reduced values that are being counted by methods above.

Hebrew Gematria Finding numerical relationships in the Texts Within the earliest Jewish traditions, groups of Jewish scholars counted the number of times each letter appeared in the Scriptures as well as the number of words, verses, paragraphs, etc. These textual specialists were called Soferim counters. The Soferim ensured that every Torah scroll and the other books of the Tanakh were identical, noting any unusual words and spellings and replicating them exactly through their scribal arts.
Many Jews believe that Ezra the Scribe instituted many of the practices of the Soferim. In the medieval mystical text called Sefer Yitzirah: The Book of Creation, the letters of the Alphabet are described as the stones used to build a house. They are called the "twenty two letters of foundation. Gematria is a type of numerological study that may be defined as one of more systems for calculating the numerical equivalence of letters, words, and phrases in a particular Hebrew text. These systems are used for the purpose of gaining insight into interrelating concepts and for finding correspondences between words and concepts.
Although not identical, gematria is also in the same orbit as the so-called "Bible Codes" and "Equi-distant Letter Sequences" ELS that have become fashionable recently. According to most practitioners, there are several methods used to calculate the numerical value for individual words and phrases. I list the most common Hebrew gematria methods below. The Standard Method Each letter of the Hebrew alphabet is given an assigned number, beginning with one for Aleph, two for Bet, and so on.
The tenth letter, Yod, is numerically equivalent to 10, and successive letters equal 20, 30, 40, and so on. The letter Kaf near the end of the alphabet, equals , and the last letter, Tav, equals This method is sometimes called "Ragil. Note: In the Mispar Mussafi method, the value of a word or phrase is the standard gematria value plus the number of letters in the word or phrase.
Mispar Gadol Method The mispar gadol method is the same as the standard method above but counts the final forms sofit of the Hebrew letters as a continuation of the numerical sequence for the alphabet. Mispar Katan Method The mispar katan method calculates the value of each letter as its standard value but simply truncates all of the trailing zeros.
Ordinal Value Method Using this method, each of the 27 Hebrew letters is assigned an ordinal value from one to twenty-two. At Bash Method Using at Bash, each letter of a word or phrase is exchanged with its "opposite" letter and then the result is calculated. Mispar HaKadmi Method With the mispar hakadmi method, each letter is the sum of the all the standard gematria letter values preceding it.
Mispar HaPerati Method With mispar haperati, the value of each letter is the square of its standard gematria value. Note: the Mispar HaKellali method takes the standard gematria value of a word or phrase and squares its value. Squaring that value yields , Mispar Shemi Method Millui or full-letter filling - The value of each letter is equal to the value of its name the spelling of the name of the number comes from the Talmud.
