Crossing Measurement Units as per Abraham. “Abraham the Hebrew” (Genesis 14:13). The root of the Hebrew word for “Hebrew” (ivri) literally means “to cross over.” Why does the Torah give Abraham this name? One opinion is that he gained this name because in coming to Israel he left his birth place in Ur Kasdim and crossed over the Euphrates. It is a major geographical demarcation line in the ancient world. Thus he was known as one who had “crossed over.”

The first letter of Abraham’s name can be spelled with the ayin of “avar” instead an aleph. Both are silent letters and acquire the sound of the vowel placed underneath the word. “Avaraham” translates to “father of the many.” Whether the middle letter is a beis or veis, the numerical equivalent of “to cross over” is 272.
- Ayin also denotes the number 70.
- Beis of veis denotes the number 2.
- Reisch denotes the number 200
- 2 + 70 + 200 = 272.
The megalithic yard is equal to about 2.72 feet . A megalithic inch of 0.816 inches x forty = one megalithic yard. Finally, the cubic inch of gold was a weight standard in antiquity. Several samples are in the British Museum from various countries. As a cube has 12 edges, they equal the 12 inches of the more modern foot.
- Note the featured number square: 816 crosses the bottom horizontally.
- As 40 megalithic inches make the megalithic yard, total the perimeter numbers of this square: 4 + 9 + 2 + 7 + 6 + 1 + 8 + 3 = 40.
Conclusion: Abraham not only the Euphrates River, he crossed over units of measure from megalithic to the English 12 inch foot. Finally we can see how numbers and letters shared the once same symbol.
