Daniel Langer offers an innovative approach to the study of Chumash. Within literary units of the Torah, key words often appear in multiples of seven, with the context of the first shedding light on the seventh. Through the simple counting of words, we not only reveal the exquisite artistry inherent in the text, but we begin to uncover intertextual relationships between various portions of the Torah and unveil hidden layers of meaning.
The Torah is a tapestry of words. Umberto Cassuto said that numerical symmetry is the golden thread that binds the Torah together, providing convincing proof of its unity. As this thread weaves its way through the fabric of the Torah, joining the seventh to the first, interconnecting words and themes across literary sections, both large and small, it inscribes the signet of God in every fiber along the way.
