    The validity of gematria

    https://eu.mycentraljersey.com/story...azis/24273719/

    After the Jews defend themselves and killed the 10 sons of Haman, Esther asks the king, "If it please the king, let it be granted to the Jews ? to do tomorrow also as this day, and have the bodies of Haman's 10 sons hanged in public display on the gallows" (Megillah 9:14).

    Esther's request seems somewhat strange. The 10 sons of Haman already had been killed. Why did Esther request the king to hang them?

    (...)
    Commenting on the word "tomorrow" in Esther's request, the Midrash (Tanchuma Bo 13) comments: "There is a tomorrow that is now, and a tomorrow which is later," indicating a prophecy for the future.

    (...)
    After World War II, the surviving Nazi leaders were tried at Nuremberg for their war crimes. On Oct. 1, 1946, 12 of the German defendants were sentenced to death by hanging for their part in the atrocities committed against the Jews and others. One of those convicted was Martin Bormann, who was sentenced in absentia. A second was Hermann Goering, who committed suicide in his cell just hours before the executions. The remaining 10 Germans were hanged on Oct. 16, 1946.

    (...)
    In listing the names of the 10 sons of Haman, Jewish tradition always has required that three letters in the name of Haman's sons be written in a smaller font ? a taf, a shin and a zayin, which has the gematria numerical equivalent of 707 (shin = 300, taf = 400, zayin = 7). It was not known why we needed to write these letters in a smaller font for millennium, but now we know.

    (...)
    When in Hebrew we speak of the calendar year, we do not use the thousand number. This year, for example, 5773, in Hebrew is called shin-taf-ayin-gimmel or 773. It is assumed that everyone knows what millennium they are in. So based on the word "tomorrow" in Esther's request as clearly being some future event ? these smaller three letters were a future prophecy for the killing of Haman's 10 sons in a future year 707. It could have been 4707 or 5707.

    (...)
    October 1946, when the 10 Nazi criminals were executed, was the Jewish year 5707, or in Hebrew, taf-shin-zayin, 707 ? the exact same letters and numbers. The 10 remaining Nazis fulfill the request of Esther: "tomorrow?let Haman's 10 sons be hanged."

    Exclamation

    in my Hebrew Bible:






    https://www.chabad.org/library/bible...showrashi=true

    And Esther said, "If it please the king, let tomorrow too be granted to the Jews to do as today's decree, and let them hang Haman's ten sons on the gallows."

    tomorrow too = גַּם־מָחָ֗ר

    Also here a dot above the letter "chet" of "machar"

    in my Hebrew bible it is rhombic in shape.

    Rashi has no clue -- because he lived far before World War II

    and let them hang Haman's ten sons on the gallows: those who were slain.
