Beraishit 19.27-בראשית 

Abraham arose early to The Place

27.’And Abraham arose early in the morning to the place where he had [previously] stood before Hashem- וַיַּשְׁכֵּם אַבְרָהָם בַּבֹּקֶר אֶל הַמָּקוֹם אֲשֶׁר עָמַד שָׁם אֶת פְּנֵי יְהוָה (2672=17=8).

The verse can be divided so:
·         And Abraham arose early in the morning- וַיַּשְׁכֵּם אַבְרָהָם בַּבֹּקֶר(2048 = 14=8 or + 3 words =251=8 counting final Mems as 600);
·         To the place- אֶל הַמָּקוֹם(222+2 words=8);
·         Where he had [previously] stood before Hashem- אֲשֶׁר עָמַד שָׁם אֶת פְּנֵי  יְהוָה (1522=10=1 or   2082+6 words=18 counting final Mem as 600).

And Abraham arose early in the morning
וַיַּשְׁכֵּם אַבְרָהָם בַּבֹּקֶר


This is the place where he had previously pleaded with Hashem not to destroy Sodom.

This phrase "to The Place"- אֶל הַמָּקוֹם (222+2=8) is found again at the end of the Parsha along with the words "and Abraham arose early in the morning"- וַיַּשְׁכֵּם אַבְרָהָם בַּבֹּקֶר (22.3). This is "The Place' where Abraham takes Isaac to be sacrificed. 

3.’And Abraham arose early in the morning- וַיַּשְׁכֵּם אַבְרָהָם בַּבֹּקֶר (2048=14=8 or + 3 words=17=8 counting final Mems as 600), and saddled his donkey-וַיַּחֲבֹשׁ אֶת חֲמֹרוֹ (981=18), and he took his two young men with him- וַיִּקַּח אֶת שְׁנֵי נְעָרָיו אִתּוֹ(1628=17=8), and Isaac his son, and he chopped (split-Rashi) the wood for the burnt-offering- וְאֵת יִצְחָק  בְּנוֹ וַיְבַקַּע עֲצֵי עֹלָה(1136+6 words=1142=8), and he stood up, and went to the place of which G-d had told him- וַיָּקָם וַיֵּלֶךְ אֶל הַמָּקוֹם אֲשֶׁר אָמַר לוֹ הָאֱלֹהִים (1313=8 or 3473=17=8 counting final Mems and Kaf as 600 and 500).
There "The Place"- הַמָּקוֹם is identified as the Temple Mount in Jerusalem. It could well be that this was the same place where Abraham pleaded with Hashem to save Sodom.

The meaning of the words "to the place"- אֶל הַ מָּקוֹם read backwards is “The Place of G-d”- מָּקוֹם הַ אֶל.

Thus "to the Place”- אֶל הַמָּקוֹם which is the "Place of G-d"- מָּקוֹם הַאֶל, G-d spoke to Abraham.

That this Place is the Temple Mount is proven by the following gematriot:

To The Place-The Place of G-d
אֶל הַמָּקוֹם-מָּקוֹם הַאֶל
