A Hidden Structure

In the Hebrew of Genesis, from the first occurrance of the letter “T”, then count 49 letters, the next letter (the 50th) is “O”; the next 50th is “R”; and then the next 50th is “H”. Adding them together, the word TORH is formed, or TORAH.

In the Book of Exodus, the same pattern can be found.

It doesn’t seem to work with the third Book of Moses, Leviticus.

In the fourth book of the Torah, the Book of Numbers, a pattern with 49-letter intervals works with HROT,” that is, TORH backwards. A similar 49-letter interval also appears in the fifth book of the Torah, the Book of Deuteronomy.

However, in the middle book, the Book of Leviticus, it doesn’t seem to work either way. But it does work for YHWH, the sacred name of God, if you count in seven letter increments.

Leviticus 23:15 instructs us to count 49 days from Passover and then to celebrate the Feast of Weeks on the next, the 50th day. The Feast of Weeks commemorates the giving of the ten commandments on Mount Sinai.
