Obama In The Torah Codes

Okay, here we go. Yes, whether you believe in the Torah Codes or not, this one is interesting. Or not. Well let's just say it (since it's already spreading all over the blogosphere.)

The name Obama spelled אובאמה appears exactly two times in all of Tanach having a 7 letter skip forward pattern. (A 7 skip forward pattern is considered the most significant kind in Bible Code land.)

The first place is in Yermiyahu 30:10-11. Yermiyahu 46:27-28. (See "Update" at bottom.)

This is how it reads:

וְאַתָּה אַל תִּירָא עַבְדִּי יַעֲקֹב נְאֻם יְקֹוָק וְאַל תֵּחַת יִשְׂרָאֵל כִּי הִנְנִי מוֹשִׁיעֲךָ מֵרָחוֹק וְאֶת זַרְעֲךָ מֵאֶרֶץ שִׁבְיָם וְשָׁב יַעֲקוֹב וְשָׁקַט וְשַׁאֲנַן וְאֵין מַחֲרִיד: אַתָּה אַל תִּירָא עַבְדִּי יַעֲקֹב נְאֻם יְקֹוָק כִּי אִתְּךָ אָנִי כִּי אֶעֱשֶׂה כָלָה בְּכָל הַגּוֹיִם אֲשֶׁר הִדַּחְתִּיךָ שָׁמָּה וְאֹתְךָ לֹא אֶעֱשֶׂה כָלָה וְיִסַּרְתִּיךָ לַמִּשְׁפָּט וְנַקֵּה לֹא אֲנַקֶּךָּ

This is how it translates:

10 27 Therefore fear thou not, O my servant Jacob, saith the L-RD; neither be dismayed, O Israel: for, lo, I will save thee from afar, and thy seed from the land of their captivity; and Jacob shall return, and shall be in rest, and be quiet, and none shall make him afraid.
11 28 For I am with thee, saith the L-RD, to save thee: though I make a full end of all nations whither I have scattered thee, yet will I not make a full end of thee; but I will correct thee in measure, and will not leave thee altogether unpunished.

Okay, so it sounds like now is a good time to make Aliyah. Shall we go on to the second place it's found?

The second place is in Yechezkel 38:2-3.

It reads:

בֶּן אָדָם שִׂים פָּנֶיךָ אֶל גּוֹג אֶרֶץ הַמָּגוֹג נְשִׂיא רֹאשׁ מֶשֶׁךְ וְתֻבָל וְהִנָּבֵא עָלָיו: וְאָמַרְתָּ כֹּה אָמַר אֲדֹנָי י-ה-וִה הִנְנִי אֵלֶיךָ גּוֹג נְשִׂיא רֹאשׁ מֶשֶׁךְ וְתֻבָל

Which translates as:

2 "Son of man, set your face against Gog, of the land of Magog, the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal; prophesy against him
3 and say: 'This is what the Sovereign L-RD says: I am against you, O Gog, chief prince of Meshech and Tubal.

Okay, so maybe not only is it a good time to make Aliyah... but you better make it quick!

This is the code that is being emailed around and what was posted here.

Okay - now for the debunking part. The first code simply doesn't work unless you spell Yaakov with a vav - which we don't. There are only 6 letters skipped between the second letter and the third letter. So that's out... but the second code still works... and amazingly the code starts on the letter aleph of the word
נְשִׂיא which besides meaning prince also means President!

Gil, is Obama Gog?

UPDATE: The site I linked corrected their error. It seems there are two places in
Yermiyahu where almost identical verses appear. There is one difference. The second time Yaakov, for some reason is indeed spelled with an extra vav. And that extra letter does allow the 7 letter skipping to spell out Obama. I have corrected the error above.

Hatip: Moshi

    Pinchas, are you asking me because of my proven superior divining skills?

  • At 7:42 PM , Blogger Gil Ronen said...

    Frankly Pinchas, these letter patterns are a tricky thing to get into because you can easily find the darndest things in there if you set your mind to them. Like, what if you found "Rudolph Red Nose" somewhere? Where would you take that?

  • At 7:53 PM , Blogger Pinchas said...

    No, Gil, I'm asking because lately you are the only other blogger posting here. :)

  • At 7:54 PM , Blogger Pinchas said...

    Gil, yeah, that's why I don't like the codes so much either. But still...

    I always presumed Russia (or the former Soviet Union) was Magog, based partly on geography.

    [The nation of] Obama being linked to Gog of Magog I don't see as a farfetched possibility:

    "Alaska's territorial waters touch Russia's territorial waters in the Bering Strait, though the Russian and Alaskan islands are almost 3 miles apart" (Good ole Wikipedia).

    Thanks for this timely tip. It really puts strategic tefillah into focused perspective, me thinks.

    If Alaska is so close to Russia, than maybe Sarah Palin will be Gog in 2012.

    the link you listed is a russian torah website. anything in english?

  • At 1:52 PM , Blogger Malkah said...

    I'm kind of bummed out that the George Bushes weren't Gog and MaGog. I was sort of counting on that - are there Jewish bookies who are taking bets on these things?! That would be incredible.

    However, I think Barack HUSSEIN Obama makes a great end-of-days villain, and I've heard some talk about Ishmael running the entire world for 9 months.... so start the countdown!

    But seriously, thank you for posting this, Pinchas. I think Torah codes are fascinating and scary-cool, and I got a lot of chizuk from noting the locations of these codes. Hashem the Merciful has got our back!

    hubscubs, sorry, that's where I was told about this from.

    There was a thing going around in emails after 9/11 that the Zohar predicted a villain by the name of Beladen or Beladan would be involved in serious mayhem. Does anyone recall that?

  • At 7:53 PM , Anonymous Anonymous said...

    Both the Zohar (preface 6) and the Talmud (at Sanhedrin 96) has interesting things to say about this Beladen. The Zohar says things implying to the striking of two buildings that reach the sky, and implying that this will happen in the Diaspora (out of Israel) and by a river (both Manhattan and the Pentagon are by rivers, as known). Both the Talmud and the Zohar are talking of Beladen being a dog (Zohar) or resembling a dog (Talmud). Interestingly, the Talmud discusses ben- Beladen at the pages that the Latter Days are discussed.

    This is decidedly creepy:

    Ali ibn Abi-Talib, the seventh-century figure central to Shi'ite Islam, is said to have predicted when the world will end, columnist Amir Taheri points out. A "tall black man" commanding "the strongest army on earth" will take power "in the west." He will carry "a clear sign" from the third imam, Hussein. Ali says of the tall black man: "Shi'ites should have no doubt that he is with us."

    Barack Hussein in Arabic means "the blessing of Hussein." In Persian, Obama translates as "He [is] with us." Thus does the name of the presumptive American president-elect, when combined with his physical attributes and geography, suggest that the End of Times is nigh - precisely what Iranian president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has been predicting.

    And that's Daniel Pipes writing, not some crackpot crackhead!

    Question: I live in Falwellistan. I keep hearing all of this "Obama anti-christ" chatter but try to ignore the background as much as I can. But my son asked me if there is anything to it. So here I am. First comment is that I did not know that Judaism teaches parallel to Xian "end times" so closely (which embarrasses me). But in my research today I see that all this stuff (except here) so far tends to be Xian, 'messianic', Republican, not Jewish. I want scriptural info, even gematriya, etc., from Jews. Where is it? Have URLs?
