In the entire Bible, we find the phrase, “one place” (מָקוֹם אֶחָד) 3 times: once in Genesis (1:9) account of creation (and see our article on the essence of 5783 inside this issue for more) and twice in the Book of Ecclesiastes (3:20 and 6:6).
The value of the extended phrase of the first instance of “one place”: “Let the waters collect to one place….” (יִקָּווּ הַמַּיִם מִתַּחַת הַשָּׁמַיִם אֶל מָקוֹם אֶחָד) is 1690 or 10 times 13 squared, where 13 is the value of “one” (אֶחָד). 1690 is also the product of 26 and 65, the values of two of God’s Names, Havayah (י-הוה) and Adni (אֲ-דֹנָי). Since this phrase has 26 letters, the average value of each letter is 65, or Adni!
The values of the extended phrases in which the other two instances of “one place” appear are “All goes to one place” (הַכֹּל הוֹלֵךְ אֶל מָקוֹם אֶחָד), or 346 and “For unto one place all goes” (הֲלאֹ אֶל מָקוֹם אֶחָד הַכּלֹ הוֹלֵךְ), or 382. Their sum is 728, which is the multiple of “one” (אֶחָד) times “day” (יוֹם), the first phrase in which the word “one” appears in the Torah, “one day” (יוֹם אֶחָד).
The sum of all three extended phrases is 2418, which is the product of “one” (אֶחָד) times “place” (מָקוֹם), a beautiful example of self-reference! Preceding each of the three instances of “one place” (מָקוֹם אֶחָד), we find the word “to” (אֶל). Incredibly, 2418 is also the multiple of 3 times “to” (אֶל אֶל אֶל) times God’s essential Name, Havayah (י-הוה).
