חיל בלע ויקאנו and Gilad Shalit
1027 soldiers are destined to be exchanged for Gilad Shalit.
1027 is the gematria of חיל בלע ויקאנו מבטנו ירשנו אל - as drush, one might say Al Tikri Hayil, Elah Hayal, meaning Hamas has swallowed up a soldier for many years, and is now spitting him out - from the belly of Hamas, Hashem will throw him out.
As another way of interpreting the verse, one can see what we learn in Sanhedrin 106b from this verse. It says there (per Rashi's interpretation) that David Hamelech asked Hashem to kill Do'eg. Hashem responded חיל בלע ויקאנו - he learned a lot of Torah, so wait until he forgets it all. David Hamelech asked Hashem מבטנו ירשנו אל - please don't wait - make Do'eg forget his Torah already.
Similarly, we have to endure the wait of getting Gilad out by releasing Palestinian prisoners due to whatever merits Yishmael has. We plead to Hashem to erase the merits of Yishmael and not wait any longer.
The same is true at the macro level. Please, Hashem, erase the merits of both Edom and Yishmael so we don't have to endure this Galut any longer.
This verse is also Kabbalisticly used for its Rashei Teivot, which spells out a Holy Name, which is used to gather the holy sparks from the Kelipot - as a rectification of the Pegam Berit. Gilad returning home is a symbol of the return of the holy sparks to their rightful place.
May Gilad come home soon and may all the holy sparks be rectified soon and taken out of the Kelipot, speedily in our days, Amen.
