These are the Journeys of the Children of Israel
אֵלֶּה מַסְעֵי בְנֵי יִשְׂרָאֵל

Chapter 33 of the Book of B’Midbar which contains 56 verses can be split into 44(8) sections: an introduction  (1) , a list of 42 journeys and a concluding paragraph (1)  which explains the importance of the conquest of the Land and driving out its inhabitants. 

The journeys are the encampments where the Children of Israel camped on the way including their point of departure-Ramses in Egypt (see Shmot 40.38 and Rashi there). The journeys are detailed in the Torah in such a way that the starting point and the finishing point are written in each verse. Thus there is a connection between the beginning and the end of each journey. There can be no “end” without a “beginning” and no “beginning” without an “end”.

As Abraham our father teaches us in the Book of Formation (1.7):

And the beginning of all matters are found in their ends
נעוץ סופן בתחלתן ותחלתן בסופן

התחלה סוף

The connection, as we shall see is "Hai"- ח"י, 1 and 8.

This corresponds to the entire structure of the Torah (and indeed the Universe which is contained within the Torah); the beginning and end are one.

This is the Code of Hai 1 and 8 where 1 and 8 are reversible.




The words used for journeying and camping throughout the passage are:
·         And they journeyed- וַיִּסְעוּ   =152=8
·         And they camped-       וַיַּחֲנוּ  =  80=8
232+2 words=1+8

Moreover the joint gematria of the words:
·         Journey-                    נסיעה  =185
·         Camping-                     חניה  = 73
258+2 words=260=8

The number 260 is tenfold the gematria of the Name "Hashem"-יהוה (26).
·         Journeys-                     נסיעות=596
·         Encampments-             חניות=474

One cannot "camp" unless one has first "journeyed", and one cannot "journey" unless one has first "camped".

Accordingly we see that there is a connection between the beginning and end of their entire 40 year journey:

·         The point of departure- Ramses-                     רַעְמְסֵס   =810 = 1+8or + 1 word=10=1
·         The final encampment- Plains of Moab-   עַרְבֹת מוֹאָב  =721=10=1

The beginning and the end of the forty year journey as well as all the journeying and camping within that period occurred in the Eighth Sphira.

1.’These are the journeys of the Children of Israel that went forth out of the land of Egypt by their armies under the hand of Moses and Aaron- אֵלֶּה מַסְעֵי בְנֵי יִשְׂרָאֵל אֲשֶׁר יָצְאוּ מֵאֶרֶץ מִצְרַיִם לְצִבְאֹתָם בְּיַד מֹשֶׁה וְאַהֲרֹן(5904=18).

The gematria of the word “journeys”-מַסְעֵי is 180.

The gematria of the words “These are the journeys”- אֵלֶּה מַסְעֵי is216=1+8.

The number 216 corresponds to the number of letters in the Explicit Name of Hashem.

The first letters of the words “Journeys of My Children (of Israel)”- מַסְעֵיבְנֵי יִשְׂרָאֵל have a gematria of 42.

42 Journeys
מ"ב מסעות
618+2 words=620=8

The number 620 corresponds to the Sphira of Keter- כתר (Crown) which is the highest point of the Eighth Sphira.

The number 42 corresponds to the 42 letter Name of Hashem-שם מ"ב.

Name of 42

רַעְמְסֵס-סֻכֹּת-אֵתָם-מִגְדֹּל -מָרָה-אֵילִם- יַם סוּף-מִדְבַּר סִין-דָפְקָה-אָלוּשׁ-רְפִידִם- מִדְבַּר סִינָי-
  קִבְרֹת הַתַּאֲוָה-חֲצֵרֹת- רִתְמָה-רִמֹּן פָּרֶץ-לִבְנָה-רִסָּה-קְהֵלָת*-הַר שָׁפֶר-חֲרָדָה-מַקְהֵלֹת-תָחַת-
 תָרַח-מִתְקָה-חַשְׁמֹנָה-מֹסֵרוֹת-בְנֵי יַעֲקָן-חֹר הַגִּדְגָּד-יָטְבָתָה-עַבְרֹנָה-עֶצְיֹן גָּבֶר- מִדְבַּר צִן-

The number 26 is the gematria of the Name "Hashem"- יהוה.

*The only way the 42 names listed in the passage decode according to the Code is by the 18th stop being called “Kehalath”- קְהֵלָת and not “Kehalatha”- קְהֵלָתָה. This reinforces my opinion above that the name of the place is in fact “Kehalath (535)”. The word “Kehalatha”- קְהֵלָתָהmeans “towards/in the direction of” Kehalath- קְהֵלָת

The gematria of the word “Kehalath”- קְהֵלָת is 535 which correspond to 8on either side of the mid-point 5-3-5. It is no coincidence that this stop is the 18th stop and 19th (10=1) journey.

This word is spelt in the same way as the word “Koheleth”- קֹ‏הֶ‏לֶ‏ת which is the name that King Solomon gave to the Book Ecclesiastes. The reason being is that King Solomon was well versed like his father King David in the Code of Hai.  

These are the journeys of the Children of Israel
אֵלֶּה מַסְעֵי בְנֵי יִשְׂרָאֵל

King David is Alive and in Existence
דוד מלך ישראל חי וקים

Shem Hai
 שם חי

 The entire journey is to bring Mashiach!
