[GR] > The Number 434 - Dalet and The Seat of God

Son of man, say unto the prince of Tyrus, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Because thine heart is lifted up, and thou hast said, I am a God, I sit in the seat of God, in the midst of the seas; yet thou art a man, and not God, though thou set thine heart as the heart of God:

Ezekiel 28:2

The LORD sitteth upon the flood; yea, the LORD sitteth King for ever.

Psalm 29:10

The Number 434

Dalet (Fourth Letter, Door)


The Seat of God [Ezek 28.2]


Moshev Elohim

Yea, the LORD sitteth
King [Ps 29.10]


V'yeshev YHVH Melekh

The Judgment [Deu 1.17]



To sanctify [Ezek 46.20]



Thy holy things [Deu 12.26]



Shall be holy [Lev 27.32]


Yiyeh Qodesh

shall bear (a child) [Gen 17.21]



He hath known
my name [Ps 91.14]


Yada Shmi

To keep watch [Pro 8.34]



The Fourth Spoke is governed by the fourth letter Dalet. Its name denotes a door, and has the value 434 = 4 (D) + 30 (L) + 400 (T). The meaning of Dalet directly correlates with the chapter sequence of the Inner Wheel of Revelation in which we find Revelation 4 opening with a vision of a door open in heaven. The whole chapter then links uniquely to the vision of the Divine Throne found in the opening chapter of Ezekiel (Spoke 4, Cycle 2). We have therefore a convergence of the geometry of the Wheel, the chapter sequence of Revelation, and both the literal and symbolic meanings of the Fourth Letter. This convergence is amplified by the following alphanumeric identity:

Dalet = 434 = The Seat of God (Ezekiel 28:2)

The "Seat of God" is another name for the Throne revealed in both Ezekiel and Revelation 4. The Hebrew phrase Moshev Elohim appears only in Ezekiel 28:2 on Spoke 4. All of this is further amplified from another verse speaking of the Lord "sitting":

Yea, the Lord sitteth King (Ps 29:10) = 434

The idea of a Throne naturally coheres with the symbolic meaning of the Number 4 and Dalet (think foursquare, four legs, firm foundation, etc.). It is from this Divine Throne that God sits in Judgment of the World:

The Judgment (HaMishpat) = 434

Holiness and the Number Four

The most obvious connection between holiness and the Number 4 is found in the Fourth Commandment: "Remember the Sabbath Day, to keep it holy." The word written is

To Keep it Holy



= 440

We have here a reiteration of the Number of the Commandment - 4 - in the numerical value of the command "to keep it holy" = 440. This word is identical to the verb "to sanctify" = 434 listed in the table except for the Vav suffix indicating the "third person" - the "it" in the command to "keep it holy." Note the other two identities relating to holiness in the table ("Thy holy things" and "shall be holy").

We have another couple variations on this theme of Holiness and the Number 4 in the word for the Temple and its root which is just the word for holiness itself (qadash) :




= 404


Temple (Miqdash)



= 444

Thus we have the Numbers 4, 404, 434 (= Dalet), 440, and 444 all strongly associated with holiness, the topic of the Fourth Commandment.

The Door of Birth and the Number Four

And Adam knew Eve his wife; and she conceived, and bare Cain, and said, I have gotten a man from the LORD. Genesis 4:1

Genesis 4 records the first birth in the Bible. The word translated as "bare" is "teled" = 434. It is a simple anagram of the word "Dalet," the name of the Fourth Letter. The alphabetic cycle of Genesis is therefore linked to the symbolic meaning of Dalet just like Revelation. We also have a connection with the idea of Knowledge (Da'at = 474) and its related verb "yada" in which the Dalet is the essential element (compare knowing words such as veda, video, idea, eido). It is the verb yada which appears in Genesis 4, and which caused the conception of Cain (this is what it means to "know" in the "Biblical sense.") An hint of this is seen in the idenity "He knows my name" = 434 from Psalm 91:14.

We also have a very dense convergence around the literal meaning of Dalet in this verse from Proverbs 8:34:

Blessed is the man that heareth me, watching (lishqod = 434) daily at my gates (daltothey = plural of delet), waiting at the posts of my doors (petachi - synonym of Dalet that first appears in Genesis 4).

Factors: 434 = 2 x 7 x 31
