The Torah has 304,805 letters and different counts of words (such as 79,976 words). The first word is Bereshit and the last is Israel. I was just wondering (no real reason, just for curiosity): What word is in the exact middle of the Torah?
According to this, there are 79,977 words, and the middle one is the above-mentioned "יְסוֹד" ("base").
According to the Masoretes, the middle word in Torah is “דָּרֹשׁ,” which is found in Leviticus 10:16. The image below comes from Page 128 of the Codex Leningradensis.
The Masoretic margin notes (Masora Parva) to the left of the column state, “חצי התורה בתיבות,” which translated from Aramaic means: “The middle of Torah by words.”
