The first time the word hand (יד) is written is the Torah is when the progenitor of King David and thus Mashiach is born. The 11th of the 28 times referenced the Hand on G-d’s Throne, then the passage continues saying that G-d will be at war with Amalek for all generations ( מ׳דר דר ), which decodes with gematria to “From 408.” It is not a coincidence that the Zohar repeatedly speaks of the 408 years of troubles leading up to the time of Moshiach, or that the Torah is exactly 408 component letters shy of a complete 600,000, the log of which is 5.778.
The Zohar tells us that the word hand (יד) is actually the Name Hand(יד), coinciding with the Name David (דוד), also of numerical value 14. The two Hands are always combined within the Tertagrammaton (יהוה), which is mercy, through the two Heisi(הה) that are each composed of the letters Dalet and Yud (יד). “From these Two Hands, the heaven and earth were created, and all that is with them.”
There are 10 primordial or component letters that existed in the world of Tohu, even before the primordial Aleph (א) that is Binah. They are : ן: ך: ר: ס: נ: כ: י: ז: ו: ד. Of them, the 1st and 4th spell the Name Hand (יד) of numerical value 14. There are innumerable secrets to these 10 letters and following the guidance of Abraham’s Sefer Yetzirah, we line them up 5 on one side, 5 on the other and cleave them in half. The initial light revealed by this cleaving in two is that their numerical total, 1557 divided by 2 is 778.5, an allusion to the frame of 5778 years that existed long before time existed. That initial light also shines from the sum of the 5 letters (: נ: י: ז: ו: ד), whose sum is 77; and whose sum of their square roots is 10 times the square root of 3 or 10√3; and whose sum of their squares is 2701, the numerical value of the 28 letters of the Torah’s first verse. The sum of the squares of the other 5 component letters is 784,000 or 28² x 1000. That 28² is (1000 – 216) is another indication that the two (2) hands are full of mercy without the judgements, which is gevura (216).
בְּרֵאשִׁית, בָּרָא אֱלֹהִים, אֵת הַשָּׁמַיִם, וְאֵת הָאָרֶץ.
In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.
Two (2) Hands, 5 fingers on each hand, that created Heaven and Earth. It is not for nothing that of all Patriarchal names, only David’s (דוד) is comprised wholly of the primordial 10 letters. More to follow….
