As a brief interlude in our series on the secrets of the **10** Commandments and also of the Shema Yisrael, we wanted to point a hidden secret in the phrase **40** days and **40** nights that appeared at the end of this week’s portion, Mishpatim.

**8** times the phrase **40** days and **40** nights, or *arba’im yom v’arba’im lilah (ERBAYM YVM VERBAYM LYLH)* appears in the Torah. The first 2 times it refers to the flood that wiped clean the planet and the rest of the times it refers to Moses ascent on Sinai to bring back the 2 tablets.

Let’s note first that the letter * Yud(Y) *is present in each word,

*(ERBA*totaling the value

**Y**M**Y**VM VERBA**Y**M L**Y**LH)**40**, so obviously not a coincidence. These

*correspond to the*

**4 Y**uds (**YYYY**)**4**

*for healing which is turn trace their source to the*

**Y**uds**4**

*Y**uds*that begin the

**4**aspects of the Tetragrammaton (

*AV, SAG, MAH, BAN*).

Nevertheless, what we really wanted to point out is that like the orbit of planet Jupiter, the

**5th**planet, whose orbit is

**778.5**million Km around the Sun, whose temperature is

**5778 K**, the numerical value of the phrase

**40**days and

**40**nights, or

*arba’im yom v’arba’im lilah (ERBAYM YVM VERBAYM LYL*is

**H**)**778**though the final

*, whose numerical value is*

**H**ey**5**.

Since in Hebrew dates are described by their final 3 digits (

**778**) and since the final

**(**

*H***5**) represents the world of

*Malchut*, our world, as it does in the Tetragrammaton (

*YHV*), this designation within phrase 40 days and 40 Nights makes total sense.

**H**Now, the 20 (

*esrim*) letters in the phrase connect it to

*keter*, the highest

*sefira*(dimension) and the complete gematria value (ordinal plus standard) plus the

*kolel*for the letters also connects it to keter, because it works out to

**1000**, but there is still something about these 4 words that troubles me.

They are mentioned

**8**times and refer to events that happened in

**1658**and

**2448**respectively,

**790**years apart. When we add up the gematria sofit of the letters without that same final

**, we get**

*H***2458**, which is

**10**more than the year

**2448**, but it does makes the difference a more perfect

**800**.

We are used to things in the Torah working our perfectly and when the don’t there is usually a reason for it. I mean

**8**times the

**80**(40 plus 40) days/nights are mentioned over

**800**years would have been perfect, especially since Noach has the numerical value

**58**and there are exactly

**5**

**words, verses and letters in the Torah (the**

^{8}**5**Books of Moses).

Of course, Noach and the flood was the

**10th**generation from Adam, and the

**10**Commandments were received in

**2448**, and they were both really about the

**10**

*sefirot*of the Tree-of-life, so since

**5778**is the year

**2018**and

**2018**is

**10**years after

**2008**and

**5778**is

**3330**years after

**2448**and

**3330/1658 = 2.008**, maybe all 3 dates and the phrase 40 days and 40 nights hint to the rectification of the

**10**

*sefirot*of the Tree-of-life in the final

**10**years to

**2018 (5-778)**.

We’ll return to part III in our series on the

**10**Commandments shorty as they are truly the highpoint in the Torah and for us, contain the most important revelation to date.
