The Seals' Messages

Arutz Sheva (and here in Hebrew):
Archaeologists have found two ancient seals with Hebrew names, dating back to the time of the First Temple, in Jerusalem's City of David. The objects belonged to a woman and a man, Elihana bat Gael and Sa'aryahu ben Shabenyahu.

"Finding seals that bear names from the time of the First Temple is hardly a commonplace occurrence, and finding a seal that belonged to a woman is an even rarer phenomenon," said a researcher with the project.

The artifacts were discovered in a prominent building that is believed to have served as an administrative center.

The Israel Antiquities Authority, along with the Israel Nature and Parks Authority and the City of David Foundation, have been digging at the former Givati parking lot for the past nine years.
Note that the woman's seal is marked for עליהנה בת גאל.

עליהנה has the gematria of 170 - the same as that of הִנָּבֵא עַל-גּוֹג [prophesy against Gog].

Her father is named גאל, which, depending on the vowelization, means either "Redeem!", "He redeemed", or "Redeemer".

The full name of עליהנה בת גאל has the gematria of 606 - the same gematria as the beginning of the verse לִי נָקָם וְשִׁלֵּם. See here how this verse may hint to a 5776 Geula.

The second name - סעריהו בן שבניהו - Sod1820 points out that it has the exact gematria of 776! Not only that, but the hidden number between the letters (the difference between the gematrias of adjacent letters in a word) also amazingly equals 776.


May these finds be signs that we are headed for a redemption speedily this year, Amen.

Two important Hebrew seals were recently found in the City of David excavations in East Jerusalem. Unfortunately, it was announced today in the news papers instead to be published in professional periodicals. The photo of one of them is upside down and the reading by the IAA experts is faulty once again. The name of the owner of on of the seals is not Sa'aryahu but Sa'adyahu ! It is very sad that the excavators failed to consult real experts in epigraphy and paleography.

Anonymous 3:51,

What is the source for your claim?

The ancient Hebrew daleth is a small triangle. I don't see a daleth anywhere in the name. Unless it is not the usual ancient Hebrew?

I'm no expert in Ketav Ivri, but based on this chart, the letter definitely looks like a Reish - not a dalet. (BTW, the image on the Hebrew A7 site is inverted. It should be flipped horizontally.)
