Woman Of Valor

כמה דאתחיל ברכה
Sefer HaBahir, verse 3 excerpt

Traditional interpretation: “… in order that it begin with a blessing.”

Liorah’s interpretation: “… (to discern) how many thirst to know enabled power to develop proper abilities.”

The total gematria of this excerpt from verse 3 is 745. The digit sum of 745 is 16, which itself has a digit sum of 7. As taught in kabbalah, seven (zayin ז) corresponds to the woman of valor. Consequently, from this we can see “who” is fit to discern “how many” (in terms of “how much” and prescribing proper limits) and who is fit to “develop proper abilities”. It is the woman of valor who is fit to do and who does all these things.
