Interesting Egypt Gematria

Shemot 14:13:

 וַיֹּאמֶר מֹשֶׁה אֶל-הָעָם, אַל-תִּירָאוּ--הִתְיַצְּבוּ וּרְאוּ אֶת-יְשׁוּעַת יְהוָה, אֲשֶׁר-יַעֲשֶׂה לָכֶם הַיּוֹם:  כִּי, אֲשֶׁר רְאִיתֶם אֶת-מִצְרַיִם הַיּוֹם--לֹא תֹסִפוּ לִרְאֹתָם עוֹד, עַד-עוֹלָם.
And Moses said unto the people: 'Fear ye not, stand still, and see the salvation of the LORD, which He will work for you to-day; for whereas ye have seen the Egyptians to-day, ye shall see them again no more for ever.


The gematria of the large words is 3322.  Add that to the year of the Exodus (2448) and you get 5770.

It's not needed. We are before Nissan anyways.

February 11th was the day the Shah of Iran was deposed and also the day Mubarak stepped down. Is the number 11 the gematria of the name Hashem or one of the names of Hashem?

Am I missing something or what??? We're in 5771. Besides the Egypt the Torah is saying is gone forever, the actual egyptians are completely a different race of people.

Anonymous,

Yes, we're in 5771. But the Exodus occurred in Nissan, 2448. We have not completed the year until Nissan, 5771 yet, so for our subtraction equation, we are considered to still be in 5770. 5770-2448=3322.

Your second point is irrelevant. Whether they are a different race or not, Hashem is saying that 3322 years later, there will be a people called "מצרים", who will undergo a revolution in which what only be described as "Not seeing the nation the same way as before."

We can possibly further extrapolate this by using the beginning of the verse: התיצבו וראו את ישועת ה' אשר יעשה לכם היום. We can maybe even say that the כי symbolizes the 30 years Mubarak is in power and עד עולם tells us that this salvation that follows the 3322 years will last us forever. Just possible thoughts running through my head...
