Since ours is the seventh parshah and all sevenths are endeared, let us continue this idea and look at the seventh word of the parshah. The seventh word is the first word of the second verse, ויפגע , which is usually translated as “He [Jacob] arrived,” but more literally it means “He hit upon [the place],”or “He collided with [the place].” The gematria of the seventh word ויפגע is 169 = 13 x 13, where 13 is the gematria of “one” אחד , and “love” אהבה .
