יעקב פוגש את רחל

8+2 Verbs

10.’And it was that when Jacob saw Rachel the daughter of Laban his mother's brother, and the sheep of Laban his mother's brother, and Jacob approached and he rolled the stone from the mouth of the well, and he watered the flock of Laban his mother's brother-וַיְהִי כַּאֲשֶׁר רָאָהיַעֲקֹב אֶת רָחֵל בַּת לָבָן אֲחִי אִמּוֹ וְאֶת צֹאן לָבָן אֲחִי אִמּוֹ וַיִּגַּשׁ יַעֲקֹב וַיָּגֶל אֶת הָאֶבֶן מֵעַל פִּי הַבְּאֵר וַיַּשְׁקְ אֶת צֹאן לָבָן אֲחִי אִמּוֹ (9278=26=8).

11.’ And Jacob kissed Rachel and he raised his voice- וַיִּשַּׁק יַעֲקֹב לְרָחֵל וַיִּשָּׂא אֶת קֹלוֹ (1720=10=1) and he wept- וַיֵּבְךְּ (518=14=8 counting final Kaf as 500).

12.’And Jacob told Rachel that he was her father's brother, and that he was Rivkah's son;  and she ranand she told her father-וַיַּגֵּד יַעֲקֹב לְרָחֵל כִּי אֲחִי אָבִיהָ הוּא וְכִי בֶן רִבְקָה הוּא וַתָּרָץ וַתַּגֵּד לְאָבִיהָ (3576+14 words=3590=17=8).

The meeting of Jacob and Rachel at the well (verses 10-12 above) is described with nine verbs-eight of them describing Jacob’s actions andtwo of them describing Rachel’s action:
1.      He Saw                             - רָאָה =206
2.      And he approached         -וַיִּגַּשׁ  =319
3.       And he rolled                    - וַיָּגֶל  =49
4.      And he watered              - וַיַּשְׁקְ =416
5.      And he kissed                 - וַיִּשַּׁק =416
6.      And he raised                 - וַיִּשָּׂא =317
7.      And he wept                    - וַיֵּבְךְּ =518
8.      And he told                      - וַיַּגֵּד =23
9.      And she ran                    - וַתָּרָץ =1506
10.  And she told-                      וַתַּגֵּד =413

4183+10 words=4193=17=8 (final letters)

The joint gematria of the words “Our Father Jacob”- יעקב אבינו and “Our Mother Rachel”- רחל אמינו is 596.

The number 596 is the gematria of the word “Jerusalem”-ירושלים.

When Jacob and Rachel are Reunited and Rachel stops crying from bitterness then the Temple in Jerusalem will be rebuilt:

And the Children shall return to their borders

 וְשָׁבוּ בָנִים לִגְבוּלָם
527+3 words=530=8

 Prophecy of Jeremiah
