A fellow pointed out to me that the first verse of Matos & first verse of Masei have the exact same Gematria of 3324. Has anyone seen any Seforim that talk about the similar Gematria between these two verses?

  • Since we're on the topic, does anyone talk about whether all gematrios are meaningful, or are some/almost all of them just because everything has a number? Does a gematria need a mesorah or ratification by a mekubal?

    @MichoelR I believe this new book addresses your question amazon.com/Gematria-Refigured-Conveys-Through-Numbers/dp/…, although I have not read it myself

    Interesting question and an interesting coincidence. In addition to these pesukim, in במדבר ל:ב and in במדבר לג:א, there are six additional pesukim in Tanach with this gematria: שמות ו:כט, במדבר כז:ד, דברים לד:ג, שופטים י:יד, ישעיהו נג:ב, ירמיהו מו:כא. Interesting that 5 of the total 8 are in Chumash. Also interesting that our two in Matos/Masei are at the start of a parsha pesucha/stuma (as expected for a parshas hashavua) and also the pasuk at שמות ו:כט (within Parshas VaEra).
