848

I'm a big gematria fan. I was trying to see what I could come up with parts of Tanach that had the same gematria as "שרון ואולמרט", which happens to come out to 848. So I went to gezageza which was linked from yiddishkeit.org and I found some interesting phrases in Tanach. Of course, take everything you read here with a grain of salt. But, I just found it interesting.

Here's what I found:

1) ואל תעמד בכל הככר
where the angels tell Lot and his family to get out of Sedom, which saved his daughters, one of whom mothered Mo'av, from where Rut - King David's great-grandmother descends.
Kabbalists have said that Sharon will be the last prime minister before Mashiah, while Olmert is currently only "acting-"prime minister.

2) וגם אנשי המקום אמרו
which talks about Yehuda and Tamar, another part of the anscestry of Mashiah.

3) לא תתגדדו
which the rabbis gave as an additionaly meaning - do not make אגודות אגודות (i.e. different groups that cause dissention and Mahloket). It's hard to imagine more Mahloket among Jews than right now, during the reign of Sharon and Olmert.

4) חכמת מצרים
The full verse is:
ותרב חכמת שלמה, מחכמת כל בני קדם, ומכל, חכמת מצרים
which talks about the wisdom of King Solomon supassing that of all the wisdom of Egypt. We know that the wisdom of the Mashiah will even surpass that of King Solomon.
Another way of looking at this is the wisdom of Egypt was the Gaza Disengagement, which benefitted Egypt and which Sharon and Olmert were heavily involved in.

5) חנם נמכרתם
which is how those who settled in Yamit, Gush Katif, and Amona feel right now.

6) ויעלו מעל ירושלם
Has Veshalom - I hope he doesn't think this way.

7) תשכח ימיני
They forgot their right-wing ways or they forgot the holiness of Yerushalayim.
