Rambam Yesodey Hatorah 6.2:

וְשִׁבְעָה שֵׁמוֹת הֵם. הַשֵּׁם הַנִּכְתָּב יוּ''ד הֵ''א וָא''ו הֵ''א וְהוּא הַשֵּׁם הַמְפֹרָשׁ.
אוֹ הַנִּכְתָּב אֲדֹנָי. וְאֵל. אֱלוֹהַּ. וֵאלֹהִים. וֵאלֹהֵי. וְשַׁדַּי. וּצְבָאוֹת.

There are seven such names: Tetragrammaton, but written to be pronounced Lord, All Powerful; God; God of the universe; God of our Fathers; Almighty; and Hosts.

How many times do each of the [7] Holy Names appear in the Torah and what is the significance of those numbers?

  • Whose list of holy names in Torah would you like a count according to? – Double AA Aug 22 at 11:34
  • @DoubleAA I don't follow - I brought Rambam's list. – Al Berko Aug 22 at 20:00
  • How do you count how many times אלהים shows up? Do you count the instance in לא יהיה לך אלהים אחרים על פני or not? – Double AA Aug 22 at 20:26
  • @DoubleAA Once again, I thought it to be a "pre-defined" nimber, like 600K letter in the Torah, not [necessarily] empirically. – Al Berko Aug 22 at 20:34
