Pascal reference[edit]

Blaise Pascal (like a huge number of writers before him and after him) believed that extra hidden meanings could be found in the words of the Bible. This is not the same thing at all as looking for messages hidden in the letter-by-letter text. Claiming more than Pensées actually says is an interpretation that cannot be unused except if cited as the opinion of some authority. McKay (talk) 12:43, 14 August 2008 (UTC)

okay so change it to say that he believed that information could be found in the words of the bible, its still simmilar enough to torah codes to count as relevantg.j.g (talk) 17:43, 18 August 2008 (UTC)

Irrelevant link[edit]

I am deleting the link to Wheeler's holographic principle. I see no connection between a scientific theory about quantum gravity and possible hidden codes in the bible.

What about the vowels?[edit]

As was pointed out by at least one author writing a refute of the Bible code, the WRR experiment leaves out the vowel marks under the Hebrew letters. If we did the same in English, leaving out the vowels, 'cd' could mean 'code', 'acid', 'cod', 'coda', 'dice', 'cad'... In a document as long as the Bible, varying letter skips between words, having liberty to spell words either forwards or backwards, isn't it almost inevitable that related information will seemingly miraculously be produced side by side? Not to say that I think the Bible is a fraud, but these issues need addressed or they could put unwarranted doubt on the Bible. --Millar153 (talk) 17:56, 7 December 2008 (UTC)

while that might be a valid concern had the codes been found in the english translation of the bible, it is just that, a translation. the origional bible was written in hebrew which has no vowels. the nikkudim under hebrew letters are tradition, handed down by the rabbis, and do not appear in a actual torah scroll if you ever happen to see one. i hope i clarified your concerns and i apologize if i sounded disparaging. g.j.g (talk) 23:05, 14 April 2009 (UTC)

Thanks for that, g.j.g. I did know that the original Torah doesn't have vowels, but I didn't clarify that above (muddify would be more like it!) Still, whether the vowels were left out or whether they weren't there in the first place (and correctly the latter), the net result is the same: no vowels, i.e. 'cd' could mean 'acid', 'cad' etc. Still, I have heard that the Hebrew language is one of the most simple languages, so maybe the vowel problem is less prominent than English? In any case, Mr. Drosnin's findings are certainly fascinating, although in my opinion Gematria is better (while more complex) evidence of the inspiration of the Bible. Millar153 (talk) 15:25, 15 August 2009 (UTC)

Further popularization[edit]

I cannot recall further details but should it be mentioned that the bible code was a premise in The Omega Code? I remember the film had something to do with a code, the bible, and end time prophecy but it all could have been a coincidence with my recollections.--Kevin586 (talk) 18:22, 5 January 2009 (UTC)

Sir Isaac Newton Information / His own words[edit]

Wiki Page Quote: “An early seeker of divinely encrypted messages was Isaac Newton, who, according to John Maynard Keynes, believed[5] that "the universe is a cryptogram set by the Almighty", and in the structure of the universe, Newton sought the answers to "a riddle of the Godhead of past and future events divinely fore-ordained".

Perhaps we should use actual writings from Sir Isaac Newton here instead of a quote from another man. I find it is best to look at a man’s actual writings rather than to read a second party biography – especially since recently many of Sir Isaac Newton’s writings have become available for study.

Sir Isaac Newton actually wrote about his ‘Method’ of reading the Prophetic text, the Bible, in a straight forward manor – it has nothing to do with hidden meanings but rather a through search and understanding of the many places in the Bible where the prophetic writings contain the same prophecy,

Sir Newton quote: “He that would understand a book written in a strange language must first learn the language & if he would understand it well he must learn the language perfectly. Such a language was that wherein the Prophets wrote, & the want of sufficient skill in that language is the main reason why they are so little understood. Iohn did not write in one language, Daniel in another, Isaiah in third, & the rest in others peculiar to them selves; but they all wrote in one & the same mystical language as well known without doubt to the sons of the Prophets as the Hieroglyphic language of the Egyptians . to their Priests. And this language so far as I can find, was as certain & definite in its signification as is the vulgar language of any nation whatsoever: so that it is only for want of skill therein that Interpreters so frequently turn the prophetic types & phrases to signify what ever their ffansies & Hypotheses lead them to. He therefore that would understand the old Prophets (as all Divines ought to do) must fix the significations of their types & phrases in the beginning of his studies. Something in this kind has been done by former writers, & as I have endeavoured in the following discourse to carry on the designe further so I hope others will bring it to more perfection. The Rule I have followed has been to compare the several mystical places of scripture where the same prophetic phrase or type is used & to fix such a signification to that phrase as agrees best with all the places, & if more significations then one be necessary to note the circumstances by which it may be known in what signification the phrase is taken in any place & when I had found the necessary significations to reject all others as the ofspring of luxuriant fansy. ffor no more significations are to be admitted for true ones then can be proved.” (Source: The Newton Project Website)

And he also said:

“The first Principles of the Christian religion are founded, not on disputable conclusions opinions or conjectures or on humane sanctions, but on the express words of Christ & his Apostles; & we are to hold fast the form of sound words. 2 Tim. 1.13 And further, it is not enough that a Proposition be true or in the express words of Scripture: it must also appear to have been taught in the days of the Apostles in order to baptism & communion.” (Source: The Newton Project Website)

He thoroughly rejected all that could not be proven or as he himself said: “to reject all others as the ofspring of luxuriant fansy. ffor no more significations are to be admitted for true ones then can be proved.” and “The first Principles of the Christian religion are founded, not on disputable conclusions opinions or conjectures or on humane sanctions, but on the express words of Christ & his Apostles;”

In fact on the Isaac Newton Wiki page a more clear statement of what Sir Isaac Newton did is more in line with his actual quotes above: “Thus, the clarity and simplicity of science was seen as a way to combat the emotional and metaphysical superlatives of both superstitious enthusiasm and the threat of atheism,”

This seems to me to be a more accurate statement. But perhaps it’s just me. -- NorCal RS (talk) 03:53, 10 January 2009 (UTC)

ELS extensions[edit]

I would like to know if an ELS extension like that one showed in the main article of the Bible Code can be found in other texts like "War and Peace",for the sake of comparison it would be very interesting,and very simple to compare.If no it would be clear that the phenomenom is real--Vilnag (talk) 18:14, 14 February 2009 (UTC)

As note in the article section "Criticism", all of the ELS techniques have been successfully applied to numerous other texts, including War and Peace, Moby Dick and even Vanilla Ice lyrics. It is a quirk of statistics, nothing more. 59.101.28.154 (talk) 13:03, 22 January 2010 (UTC)
I specifically asked Gans this question (I was at his presentation last week) and he claimed that not only can the experiment not be reproduced on War and Peace, the New Testament etc (in Hebrew of course), but even the other books of the Hebrew Bible (most of so called "Old Testament") and the Samaritan text of the Pentateuch do not produce the same results. Omegarad (talk) 19:09, 16 March 2011 (UTC)


"ELS extensions that form phrases or sentences are of interest. Bible code proponents claim that the longer the extended ELS, the less likely it is to be the result of chance"(main article Wikipedia).I can´t see those sucesses in the "Criticism" section and it would be very simple to check the claim of the proponents.Torah:Bin Laden extension,for example...;"War and peace":extension;"Moby Dick":extension;e.t.c.--Vilnag (talk) 20:13, 23 January 2010 (UTC)

In scientific Torah Code research, comparison with other texts is the norm. When a valid Torah Code experiment is carried out with the key words of interest chosen a priori (that is, everything about the experiment is specified in advance and remains unmodified during the course of the experiment), it is possible to measure the effect and determine significance. This is currently done using software that compares the most compact result in the Torah with the most compact results in thousands of other texts. This can be thought of as a "competition" between texts.
If, in one control text (let's call it text Z), a result is more compact than the one in the Torah, it is said to be a full competitor. But...let's say that text Z and text G are the only control texts out 10,000 that compete with the Torah. That means that if you looked through ten thousand other books for a result that is comparable to that found in the Torah, you would only be able to find 2. Statistically, this is a significant result, which means that it was unlikely to have occurred by chance.
It has been noted that, frequently, when the choice of key words is relevant and/or straightforward, statistically significant results are obtained from the Torah.
Researchers such as Harold Gans, Dr. Robert Haralick, Art Levitt, and Professor Eliyahu Rips use valid, falsifiable methods to scientifically support the Torah Code hypothesis. Unfortunately, many others do not apply rigorous methods. It is partially because of these "others" and their well-meaning but misguided efforts that the overall scientific community rejects the notion entirely.
I hope this helps... Trb211 (talk) 02:21, 20 June 2011 (UTC)

No, not really the Bible Code[edit]

Before Michael Drosnin, the Bible Code meant something entirely different. It was more akin to finding the spiritual meaning from parables and scripture that was possibly written in parables. Finding the spiritual meaning in a parable or scripture has nothing to do with playing "word finder" in the Hebrew Text of the Bible.

I'm sorry, but Michael Drosnin has muddied the phrase. I was alive and talking about the Bible code before Drosnin wrote his books and changed the meaning of the phrase "Bible Code" to something much more meaningless than finding the hidden spiritual truths in parable and metaphor in the Bible.

Luckily, I personally found what I was looking for in the "law of correspondences" put forth in Emanuel Swedenborg's theological system. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Billcompugeek (talkcontribs) 20:43, 27 February 2009 (UTC)

As i understood your comment, forgive me if im wrong, you are not suggesting any specific edits rather you want a forum to discuss bible codes, and i will answer you as such. the rambam and the vilna gaon, two of histories greatest biblical minds, who far preceded michael drosnin, doron witzum, and brendan mckay, both affirmed bible codes as being accurate and researched them. the rambam was known to have interpereted a former students life story from a verse in haazinu which acrostically contained his name while the vilna gaon gave multiple acrostic refrences to the rambam in shemos. no offence meant and sorry again if i misunderstood your statement but i find fault with the claim that the bible codes are a recent inventiong.j.g (talk) 23:01, 14 April 2009 (UTC)

  • The traditional Jewish story you mention of the Rambam-Maimonides, was not him, but Ramban-Nachmanides. (NB. Both Nachmanides and the Vilna Gaon were Kabbalists (theosophic Jewish mystics). Maimonides was a rationalist Jewish philosopher, though some Jewish mystics did claim him as covertly one of theirs. Kabbalists tend to be more interested in traditional methods of Gematria/letter permutations). You refer these traditional (Oral Torah) Jewish methods of permuting/computing/rearranging/counting/substituting the letters of the Hebrew Bible as "Bible Codes", though this unfortunately confuses the two phenomena, as Bible Code has come to refer generally to E.L.S. (Equedistant Letter Sequences): The extensive range of different traditional methods are precisely defined/categorised, and are used most extensively in Kabbalah, where each method is also given a metaphysical-mystical significance in the Heavenly structures/realms of Kabbalah. As far as I'm aware, no traditional method uses ELS skipping? (at least, ELS has hardly been used before the modern era.) In the 2 anecdotes you give above, Ramban and the Vilna Gaon used acrostic isolation of the first letters of each Hebrew word (Roshei Teivot). The first to use ELS was Rabbi Weissmandl in the mid 20th Century, before the advent of computers. In contrast, the following link explains the range of traditional (Not ELS), forms of Hebrew letter countings/adaptions/substitions used in Kabbalah (Other Non-Kabbalistic Sages such as the Medieval Baal HaTurim use some of these methods in the context of expounding the reaveled-exoteric dimensions of the Torah): Gematria resource page ("Gematria is one of the 32 exegetical methods used by the sages to interpret the Torah. It allows us to analyze the Torah using mathematics"- but not the much simpler method of ELS) Billcompugeek says, "Finding the spiritual meaning in a parable or scripture has nothing to do with playing "word finder" in the Hebrew Text of the Bible." g.j.g is correct in presenting the traditional Jewish view that applying (non-ELS) gematria counting/substitution methods to the Hebrew letters of the Biblical text gives exegetical meanings, and in Kabbalah profoundly significant metaphysical meanings. April8 (talk) 19:41, 13 November 2012 (UTC)
    • NB. The link to a gematria resource page just added above underscores that the proposed ELS-letter skipping codes in the Torah use only a crude mathematical method in interpreting Torah. Skepticicism is valid that ELS findings of names-dates etc. in Torah statistically demonstrates any correlation (let the debate continue, but don't expect it to convince skeptics)............In contrast, the rarer Bible Code phenomena of clustered ELS words around certain passages (eg. Names of trees in the Garden of Eden story, Aaron in Priestly anointment section) is more interesting statistically, and should be distinguished in the article.............The perspective of Kabbalah on the Bible Codes: (and a further reason to distinguish in the article between modern "Bible Codes" and earlier traditional Gematria methods) the former ELS results - the bulk of the Bible Codes (the more serious statistics of Ripps, Witzum etc., not Drosnin) - are superficial and have no further inherent meaning, if they were valid, beyond themselves. In the veiw of Kabbalah, their mathematical simplicity can even distract/denigrate from its belief in deeper, meaningful beauty (harmony) in Torah, level upon level. The link to the mathematics of gematria page introduces more sophisticated and meaningful mathematics in Torah. This evolves into the integration and mutual fertlisation of Kabbalah with Mathematics and the Sciences: Torah and Science index - though here statistical verification of gematriot etc. is not applicable (too crude/limiting a mechanism) April8 (talk) 21:09, 13 November 2012 (UTC)

Code Key Idea[edit]

The 10 commandments were put in the arc of the covenant, which is a golden case. Mabey that is ment to give a clue that the key to the code can be found withen the 10 commandments because the key to a code is the most valuable thing, like that arc is. 69.249.54.5 (talk) 20:08, 13 April 2009 (UTC) as interesting as such an idea would be, im afraid wikipedia cant publish it unless you can find a source as it would constitute origional research. it is still a interesting idea and good luck in finding a sourceg.j.g (talk) 23:01, 14 April 2009 (UTC)


The copying of the Torah from the ancient world introduced occasional transcription errors. Of the ones known, most of them are insertions or deletions. This shouldn't work. 64.139.38.226 (talk) 20:34, 18 May 2009 (UTC)JH

I think that is the simplest point of the Bible codes. Not to make predictions, but just to show that the text is more accurate than claimed. I don't know how an insertion or deletion can be "known".Mzk1 (talk) 22:58, 21 September 2010 (UTC)


There really is no need for a key to the Bible Codes. The Codes are composed of ESLs (Equidistanced Letter Sequences). The way they work is it starts with a letter. You count forward a certain number of letters (lets say 100 for this example), then that's the next letter of the code. You count 100 more letters from your previous letters, and that's the third letter of the code. This is quite time consuming, but they have software that can detect ESLs (but don't try to find one on the internet. Most of them detect ESLs incorrectly, some to the point to where you can't even consider it an ESL anymore). You see what I'm saying? Ntr11023 (talk) 16:00, 19 October 2010 (UTC) ~~

A milder use of the Bible codes[edit]

The article seems to focus on the paper. But there is a simpler point to the codes, that is not related to the supernatural.

That is, that the simpler codes (no predictions) simply show the Torah to be a unfified whole, with little change over the years. Basically, an argument for the Masoretic text, and against the Documentary Hypothesis.

Actually, there is even a difference within the traditional view. The Talmud makes clear that between two certain points (see there) the rabbis lost knowledge of when deficient spelling and when full spelling is used. According to the codes theory, this would only have been true in a limited number of cases.

Anyone have sources?Mzk1 (talk) 20:35, 25 September 2010 (UTC)

Bad source[edit]

The web page http://www.torahcode.net/first_els/first_els.shtml Wikiedwards added as a source is unacceptable. It does not pass the requirements for reliable sources, being a self-published web page. It also contains a lot of nonsense. See Jewish calendar#Synodic month - the molad interval for the true story about the length of the month. The ELS baharad refers to the starting point of the calendar, and is not attested in any source less than a thousand years after the month length had been determined. McKay (talk) 04:26, 26 August 2011 (UTC)

May be Dr.Brendan McKay didn´t explore that web page completely before qualififying it as "Bad source" because if you enter in the "Scientific discussion" section and next in the "Papers" section:http://www.torah-code.org/papers.shtml can find a lot of scientific papers-peer reviewed-which show us that the Torah codes phenomenom is indeed real.I think this qualifies it as a very relevant source.--Vilnag (talk) 20:50, 6 September 2011 (UTC)

It isn't my judgement that is important here, but the wikipedia rules about sources. McKay (talk) 05:07, 7 September 2011 (UTC)

Inclusion of this?[edit]

http://www.biblecodewisdom.com/code/jesus-was-evil/2 http://www.biblecodewisdom.com/code/elvis-both-dead-and-alive http://www.biblecodewisdom.com/code/aliens-are-real http://www.biblecodewisdom.com/code/god-not-exist — Preceding unsigned comment added by 11cookeaw1 (talkcontribs) 06:48, 22 October 2011 (UTC)

untrue claim[edit]

The second sentence is simply not true: "One cited example is that by taking every 50th letter of the Book of Genesis, the Hebrew word for "bible" is spelled out. The same word is found similarly in each of the other five books of Moses." Only Exodus follows the same pattern as Genesis. The other books require different patterns. I'm replacing the text by something true. McKay (talk) 06:22, 24 November 2011 (UTC)

Now in 2013 the mythological version was reinserted and I took it out again. It is simply not true that the same thing happens in Numbers and Deuteronomy, which is why sources hide the details behind words like "similarly". In Numbers, one has to use the 5th ה - how is that the same as using the 1st ת? In Deuteronomy, even the skip has to be changed from 50 to 49. So in fact a quite irregular pattern is disguised as a regular pattern, which might be ok on a polemic web page but it isn't ok here. As for תורה in Leviticus at skip 7 - it appears with skip 7 in Leviticus even fewer times than it does on average for random texts of the same length. Not much to marvel about there. McKay (talk) 06:26, 6 May 2013 (UTC)

It's spelled 'Gematria'(74)[edit]

I corrected the misspelled Gematria. It was spelled correctly lower down. There is a Simple(6,74) English(7,74) Gematria(8,74) that was used to encode the Authorized Version of the Bible aka King James Version. A=1...Z=26 is the simplest alphanumeric code there could be; the only irregularity is the circle can either be O the 15th letter or zerO, i.e. 704=GOD. (How else could you convert zero to a letter?) King James I of the United(73=U21+N14+I9+T20+E5+D4) Kingdom(73)/Britain(73) (crown[73]) was a Grand Master Mason who had received instruction in sacred geometry/gematria and assembled 47 Bible experts to improve the English Bible. The KJV uniquely begins each of the first four books of the New Testament with "The Gospel(74) according(74) to St.(74) Matthew(7 letters), Mark(4), Luke(4), and John(4,47)". The primary premise of sacred geometry/gematria is "As above, so below"/"On Earth as it is in the heavens" (Lord's Prayer). The ancient Egyptians observed with the naked eye that there are 7 moving objects(74) in the heavens(74) and 4 do not cast shadows(74) on Earth (Venus does). The 29 1/2 day lunar months(74) are divided into 4 7-day weeks actually ~7.4 days. And the lunar year + 7 day week + 4 days = solar year. The Egytians then took the Standard Cubits(74)/(Biblical cubits) of 6 palms x 4 fingers and added a palm to produce the Royal cubit of 7 palms x 4 fingers; "As above, so below". The pyramids at Giza, Sphinx, and all sacred temples and buildings were designed by the architects using the basic measurement of the royal cubit. ---INCOMPLETE--- - Brad Watson, Miami (talk) 14:17, 21 July 2012 (UTC)

Misleading Summary[edit]

At the end of the second paragraph, the following summary of the views of Torah code proponents and opponents is presented:

Proponents hold that it is exceedingly unlikely such sequences could arise by chance, while skeptics and opponents hold that such sequences do often arise by chance, as demonstrated on other Hebrew and English texts.

This statement is not only false, but a gross mischaracterization that makes the proponents sound like idiots. There is no debate on either side as to the existence of Equidistant Letter Sequences. In any text, skipping letters can produce trillions of letter strings which, by chance alone, happen to spell words or groups of words. In reality, the true argument is whether or not ELSs of historically or semantically related words have the tendency - in the Torah - to appear more closely to one another than expected by chance, and to largely involve minimal or near-minimal skips.

It is thus the behavior, not the existence, of the ELSs in the Torah which is controversial. 216.145.193.218 (talk) 05:15, 5 September 2012 (UTC)

Historically, other types of claim have been made by Torah codes proponents. However, the more serious claims are like you say, so I agree the text is misleading. McKay (talk) 06:36, 6 May 2013 (UTC)

On a mobile device[edit]

The lower half of this page is a random jumble of characters when viewed on a mobile phone. I found it using an iPhone 4S running Google Chrome. It seems to be only this page.

Here's a bit of the jumble I copied.

Drosnin also made a number of claims and alleged predictions that have since failed. Among the most important, Drosnin clearly states in his book "The Bible Code II", published on December 2, 2002, that there was to be a World War involving an "Atomic Holocaust" that would allegedly be the end of the world.[44] Another claim Drosnin makes in "The Bible Code II" is that the nation of Libya would develop weapons of mass destruction that they would then be given to terrorists who would then use them to attack the West (specifically the United States).[45] In reality Libya improved relations with the West in 2003 and gave up all their existing weapons of mass destruction programs.[46] A final claim Drosnin made in "The Bible Code II" was that Palestinian Authority leader Yasser Arafat would allegedly be assassinated by being shot to death by gun imry does Pcns a Gansing work did s of a bus in Jerusalem on February 25, 1996.

Biblical Hidden Numbers[edit]

Biblical hidden numbers are obvious in Genesis chapter 38. Dr. Chuck Missler has noted in his book "Cosmic Codes, Hidden Messages from the Edge of Eternity" on page 459, a phenomenal observation. It is that there are five names found by reading Hebrew in the reverse direction (from left to right like English) but skipping 49 alphabets, and arriving in different verses at sequenced 50th alphabets. The names in sequence are Boaz, Ruth, Obed, Jesse, and David. Ruth was married to Boaz, and their son Obed was the father of Jesse who was the father of King David.

Genesis chapters 37 and 39 are about Joseph with his coat of many colors. Chapter 37 is about Joseph's dream: and his brothers' hatred of him. Chapter 39 is about Joseph's prosperity and integrity. Chapter 38 interrupts Joseph's story with a story about his brother Judah's marriage to Shuah. It is in chapter 38 that the 5 names have been found hidden backwards in Hebrew alphabets.

In the book "Biblical Hidden Numbers" by Waldo Larson, JOSEPH (#041) and his son JUDAH optionally numbered (#067) are central to 3 groups of 33 generations 5 ways named between ADAM #001 and JESUS #100. In the first place, JESSE (#033) ends the Root of DAVID (#034). The second and third ways are with the average of 33 of the 66 descendants of King DAVID's two sons NATHAN, and King SOLOMON. King SOLOMON (#035) has 25 descendants recorded between King DAVID (#034) and JESUS (#100). Nathan has 39 descendants recorded. They involve the son of the daughter of HELI (#099), the Virgin MARY, and MARY's legal husband Joseph (#066) at the end of King Solomon's 25 named descendants. The other two of five ways are with respect to (Old Testament Zerubbabel: a signet 50) and (New Testament's two Zorobabel: signet So50 and No50) with respect to Haggai chapter 2, verses 16 & 23.
