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 H)* is

**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 ** H**, we get

**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**** ^{8}** words, verses and letters in the Torah (the

**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.
