There is a custom to say a verse corresponding to ones name at the end of the Amidah, as a Segulah not to forget his name on the day of Judgement. There are several sources for this practice, including a bracketed Rashi (Michah 6:9) (this is quite possibly a later addition), some editions of the Kitzur Shelah (Kitzur Shelah by R' Michel Epstein), and the Zohar. Read all about it here.

A verse that starts with the same letter as the beginning of your name, and ends with the same letter as your name ends is a verse that corresponds to your name.

I have seen many partial lists on verses corresponding to names, usually brought in various Siddurim (such as this one). However, these lists usually just have verses for popular names, and are not an exhaustive list.

I'm looking for complete listing of every verse in the Tanach, grouped by first and last letter, starting from "א-א", and ending at "ת-ת"

Does such a list exist?

Ofer's answer mentions that the Bar Ilan program has the complete list.

However, this program is costly, and I don't think that most people have it.

This functionality is also found in the free Torat Emet program, under the tab "שונות" ("shonot", "Miscellaneous"), as shown below.

Torat Emet's entire list is presented online here.

(a screenshot showing an option under the "shonot" tab selected for "chipus otiot katzeh", "search for boundary letters", and options for which books of Tanach to search in)


In the Bar Ilan responsa program, they have an option under פרפראות לתנ"ך where you can enter a name and it gives you all the corresponding verses. If you do not hav access to the program, let me know the name you want to check, and I will be happy to check for you.

    The name Shabtai, seen here: hebrewbooks.org/pdfpager.aspx?req=20312&pgnum=391 , has a verse that starts with a "Sin" I was wondering if there are any that start with a "Shin".

  • Thank you, that is a great resource, I don't suppose they have it available online somewhere.

  • They have an online version of the program, but you need to pay subscription, and I think this specific function doesn't appear there. It is a great program and worthwhile to buy. But I'll happily check any other name. Commented Jul 2, 2013 at 14:51

    @SAH A full list is in the next answer. The easiest to remember is שִׁיר הַשִּׁירִים אֲשֶׁר לִשְׁלֹמֹה

This article has a comprehensive list. It shows an example for every "first-letter/last-letter" combination: nifla-ot.co.il/articles/138.htm - web.archive link


I made an online search engine for all possible Gematrias, Roshei tevot and sofei tevot in Tanach over 5 years ago. The website address is www.secretorah.com.

If enough people are interested in the pasukim for their names please contact me and I will create this system too. This site is FREE and has no pictures on it.


There is a decent-sized list in the back of the Chabad siddur (Siddur Tehillat Hashem). The verses are listed by a name's beginning letter and a range of ending letters.
