3324

Last year, I pointed out a verse that has the gematria of 3323, which is the number of years from the Exodus until last year.

This year, I'll do the same with 3324 - the number of years since the Exodus.

Using gezageza, I found an interesting verse with this gematria:

Shemot 6:29 is where Hashem tells Moshe to speak to Par'oh to let the Israelites out:

וַיְדַבֵּר יְהוָה אֶל-מֹשֶׁה לֵּאמֹר, אֲנִי יְהוָה; דַּבֵּר, אֶל-פַּרְעֹה מֶלֶךְ מִצְרַיִם, אֵת כָּל-אֲשֶׁר אֲנִי, דֹּבֵר אֵלֶיךָ

Then, amazingly, both the first verse of Parshat Matot and the first verse of Parshat Mas'ei have the gematria of 3324:

First verse of Matot:

וַיְדַבֵּר מֹשֶׁה אֶל-רָאשֵׁי הַמַּטּוֹת, לִבְנֵי יִשְׂרָאֵל לֵאמֹר: זֶה הַדָּבָר, אֲשֶׁר צִוָּה יְהוָה

First verse of Mas'ei:

אֵלֶּה מַסְעֵי בְנֵי-יִשְׂרָאֵל, אֲשֶׁר יָצְאוּ מֵאֶרֶץ מִצְרַיִם--לְצִבְאֹתָם: בְּיַד-מֹשֶׁה, וְאַהֲרֹן

The latter one is especially interesting as it depicts the travels of the Israelites after they left Egypt - 3324 years.

Also, we have Devarim 34:3, a verse with much End of Days import, as per Targum Yonatan:

וְאֶת-הַנֶּגֶב, וְאֶת-הַכִּכָּר בִּקְעַת יְרֵחוֹ עִיר הַתְּמָרִים--עַד-צֹעַר

Finally, there's this verse from Yirmiya 46:21 that talks about the downfall of Egypt during the time of Nevuchadnetzar that also has the gematria of 3324:

גַּם-שְׂכִרֶיהָ בְקִרְבָּהּ כְּעֶגְלֵי מַרְבֵּק, כִּי-גַם-הֵמָּה הִפְנוּ נָסוּ יַחְדָּיו לֹא עָמָדוּ: כִּי יוֹם אֵידָם בָּא עֲלֵיהֶם, עֵת פְּקֻדָּתָם

We read this verse as part of the Haftara for Parshat Bo - the perasha of the Exodus.

May the awaited final Redemption be no more than 3324 years after our first redemption.
