[GR] > The Number 60: Foundational Support

In the first year of Cyrus the king, the same Cyrus the king made a decree concerning the house of God at Jerusalem, Let the house be builded, the place where they offered sacrifices, and let the foundations thereof be strongly laid (Samek KeyWord sabal); the height thereof threescore cubits, and the breadth thereof threescore cubits;

Ezra 6:3 (Spoke 15, Cycle 1)

THE NUMBER 60 is the value of the Fifteenth Letter Samek, which literally denotes to uphold, help, or support. Samek is the central and most active letter in the word yesod (foundation), which manifests in the dimensions (threescore = 60) of the foundation recorded above in Ezra, the Fifteenth book. This is but one example of the astounding manifestation of the symbolic meaning of Samek in the Fifteenth Book, the very name of which is a synonym of Samek. The Number 60 is also the minimum age that a widow may be accepted for support by the Church according to 1 Timothy 5:9-10. Note also that she must be known as one who herself gave much support for the body of Christ in "every good work":

Let not a widow be taken into the number under threescore years old, having been the wife of one man, Well reported of for good works; if she have brought up children, if she have lodged strangers, if she have washed the saints' feet, if she have relieved the afflicted, if she have diligently followed every good work.

The Number 60 is the product of three consecutive digits 60 = 3 x 4 x 5, and is one half of the fifth factorial: 5! = 1 x 2 x 3 x 4 x 5 = 120 = 2 x 60. This is significant because the Number 120 is the value of the name of the Fifteenth Letter as well as the word amud (pillar). Indeed, in the ancient Hebrew script, the letter Samek was drawn as a pillar upholding three beams: . Samek is "self-supporting" in that its name is the triangular form of its ordinal value:

(15th Letter) = 120 = Sum(15)

We have the following relations amongst the Standard, Ordinal, and Full values corresponding to the Fifteenth Letter:

  • Ord: 15 = Sum(5)
  • Std: 60 = 15 x 4
  • Full: 120 = 60 x 2 = 15 x 8 = Sum(15) = 5!
