|אשה||Meaning: 'woman'. This is a common mnemonic word, which means it represents a value other than the sum of its letters. The first time we are introduced to the word is in verse 2:23 of Genesis. This reads: 'And said Adam This One now bone of my bones and flesh of my flesh. This One shall be called Woman because from man was taken This One.' Note that the word זֹּֽאת meaning 'this one' are the chosen words to specify Woman by Adam and they are spoken three times. I make no suggestion that there was any allusion to the Hindu–Arabic numeral system that is used today. However this may suggest a visual allusion to the number as it could be represented on a counting board or an abacus.||AShH||0|
|אהל||Meaning: 'tent'. This is a common mnemonic word, which means it represents a value other than the sum of its letters. We see this mnemonic used in Genesis 18:9 when Abraham makes a bad joke. He is asked by the Angels, 'where is your Woman?' And he replies 'Behold! In the tent!' It might be that the word 'tent' borrowed the number of 'woman' (111) because it was a symbol of her authority over her domain.||AHL||0|
|פני + כסה - פרשז + עננו||From Job 26:9 "מאחז פני כסה פרשז עליו עננו", 'He covers [the] face [of his] throne - expanse + his clouds.'||PNI + KSH - PRShZ + ONNV||0|

A gematria cipher assigns letters to numbers and thus values to words. The earliest Gematria calculations with the alphabet that we know of were made by writers of the Hebrew Bible. The ciphers likely began as a way to keep track of verses of the creation story which were handed down and memorized through the oral tradition (chanting). Early examples of gematria assigned numerical values to names, and especially the names of God. From these early beginnings a formal system of mathematics developed which grew in complexity and structure until it flourished during the time of the First Temple.
In this system of early math, only the nouns were counted, and other words were reserved to indicate types of calculations. Some words held set values by convention, and this will have made the practice of calculation faster. Another class of words were used to indicate the presence of gematria in a text - for instance 'הנה' which means 'Behold!'. Due to all these conventions, Gematria was as accurate in ancient times as modern math is today, and biblical scribes expected that their readers would know of it. Learning biblical gematria is like taking a seat at the table of the scribe, and becoming a part of his intended audience.
The Gematria ciphers for the Hebrew Bible were transposed to the Greek alphabet by Jewish converts to Christianity and used in the New Testament. However at the time of the Sages the Hebrew Biblical Cipher was hidden, because it was part of the knowledge concerning the Chariot of God, and was considered too Holy to be shared. Soon afterwards, the New Testament cipher was lost by the Christian Churches, to the detriment of general exegesis.
In 1900 the Biblical Ciphers were re-discovered by Aleister Crowley, who transliterated them to our modern alphabet and used them in Liber Al vel Legis and other of his Class A texts. Aleister Crowley used his knowledge of the Merkabah and the biblical ciphers as the architecture behind the Qabalah of Thelema.
In 2015 the biblical ciphers were rediscovered by cryptographer Bethsheba Ashe, the creator of this calculator. She found that these ciphers were akin in their function to the Rosetta Stone that allowed Jean François Champollion to decipher the system of Hieroglyphics used by Ancient Egyptians. Ashe has presented the results of several years of biblical decipherment in her guide to the study of gematria throughout the ages: 'Behold'.
"Shematria is the main hub I go to, to decipher the gematria and notariqon of the Bible and the Book of the Law. I built this site because it's useful, not just to me, but to anyone interested in pursuing a complete exegesis of texts that employ these scribal methodologies. It is my hope that by providing tools to decipher gematria, we shall gain a better understanding of our Holy Books." — Bethsheba Ashe.
The Shematria Gematria Calculator is a research tool for people engaged in the study of the Bible and other Occult texts.
Shematria converts words to numbers. It makes working out formal gematria calculations easier and faster to do. Shematria accepts calculations in Hebrew, Greek, Arabic & Roman scripts. The calculator only carries ciphers that have been proven to have been used in the Tanakh, the New Testament, the Talmud, or the Book of the Law*.
The Genesis Order cipher is generally used in conjunction with alphabetic acrostics in the Bible (see 777 for the gematria of the 'virtuous wife'). The first two chapters of Genesis are keyed to this cipher.
The Biblical Gematria cipher is the most widely employed gematria cipher in the Bible.
The Reversal Cipher applies the Biblical Gematria cipher values to the letters in the reverse order.
The Standard Hebrew cipher is Mispar Hekhreḥi, and it is chiefly used in Talmudic and Kabbalistic texts.
The name 'Shematria' is a contraction of the words 'Shem' and 'Gematria'. in Hebrew the word 'Shem' means 'name'. The word 'Shematria' has the same gematria value as the word 'Gematria'. A common title for God in Judaism is 'HaShem', meaning 'The Name' (of God). This calculator allows you to add + and subtract - as well as do simple division / and multiplication * (with single letters).
The Gematria Calculator will not count any numbers that you enter if they accompany letters. If you enter numbers only, it will check our database for other examples of words and calculations that match that number.
The Shematria database is curated. Please see our guidelines for submission to our database. The Gematria Bible includes the standard gematria of each word, and it can speak the verses in Hebrew or Greek for you to reveal poetic meter, rhyme, and other features of the text.
