Chotem Hamithapech

אמר ר’ נחוניא בן הקנה כתוב אחד אומר

Bahir line 1

There are 8 words in the first line of Sefer HaBahir – where 8 signifies a gateway into the transcendent realm of binah, the union of aur yashar and aur chozer, and the power to enter into the mysteries of Torah. Eight is also the numeric value of the hebrew letter chet ח, the letter of life and the “living name” shem chai שם חי. 

ש total gematria of the line = 2116

2116 => 2 + 1 + 1 + 6 = 10 = 1 + 0 = 1 => the first sefirah keter-malchut, the crown of the yud

ם adding in the letter beit ב of the word rav רב, the total gematria of the line = 2118

2118 => 2 + 1 + 1 + 8 = 12 (the age of bat mitzvah) => 1 + 2 = 3 => the 3 partzufim of keter and their descent into the mochin* consisting of the triple configuration of chochmah, binah and da’at

now in da’at, the attribute distinguishing Moshe, the light is further brought down into the lower 7 sefirot and into the revealed world, and gathered together as a unified coherent expression of malchut
