The Beginning and the End of the Talmud
The first word of the Talmud (Seder Zera'im), Masechet "Brachot" - ברכות ("Blessings") is "From what time"- מֵאֵימָתַי. The first Mishna deliberates the correct times to recite the Shema Prayer at evening, the holiest prayer in Judaism.
From when (what time) may one recite the Shema prayer in the evening? From the time that the Priests enter their houses in order to eat their Terumah portion (i.e. from the time of the appearance of the stars) until the end of the First Watch. These are the words of Rabbi Eliezer. The Sages say, until midnight. Rabbi Gamliel says until dawn comes up. Once it happened that his sons came from home late from a wedding feast and they said to him, We have not yet recited the Evening Shema. He said to them, ' If dawn has not yet come you are still bound to recite'. And not in respect to this did they so decide. But wherever the Sages say "until midnight" the precept may be performed until the dawn comes up. The precept of burning the fat and the sacrificial pieces, too, may be performed till the dawn comes up. Similarly all the offerings that are to be eaten within ione day may lawfully be consumed till the coming up of the dawn. Why then did the sages say "until midnight"? In order to keep a man far from transgression.
מֵאֵימָתַי קוֹרִין אֶת שְׁמַע בְּעַרְבִית. מִשָּׁעָה שֶׁהַכֹּהֲנִים נִכְנָסִים לֶאֱכֹל בִּתְרוּמָתָן, עַד סוֹף הָאַשְׁמוּרָה הָרִאשׁוֹנָה, דִּבְרֵי רַבִּי אֱלִיעֶזֶר. וַחֲכָמִים אוֹמְרִים, עַד חֲצוֹת. רַבָּן גַּמְלִיאֵל אוֹמֵר, עַד שֶׁיַּעֲלֶה עַמּוּד הַשַּׁחַר. מַעֲשֶׂה שֶׁבָּאוּ בָנָיו מִבֵּית הַמִּשְׁתֶּה, אָמְרוּ לוֹ, לֹא קָרִינוּ אֶת שְׁמַע. אָמַר לָהֶם, אִם לֹא עָלָה עַמּוּד הַשַּׁחַר, חַיָּבִין אַתֶּם לִקְרוֹת. וְלֹא זוֹ בִּלְבַד, אֶלָּא כָּל מַה שֶּׁאָמְרוּ חֲכָמִים עַד חֲצוֹת, מִצְוָתָן עַד שֶׁיַּעֲלֶה עַמּוּד הַשָּׁחַר. הֶקְטֵר חֲלָבִים וְאֵבָרִים, מִצְוָתָן עַד שֶׁיַּעֲלֶה עַמּוּד הַשָּׁחַר. וְכָל הַנֶּאֱכָלִין לְיוֹם אֶחָד, מִצְוָתָן עַד שֶׁיַּעֲלֶה עַמּוּד הַשַּׁחַר. אִם כֵּן, לָמָּה אָמְרוּ חֲכָמִים עַד חֲצוֹת, כְּדֵי לְהַרְחִיק אֶת הָאָדָם מִן הָעֲבֵירָה.
The gematria of the first verse of the Shema Prayer (1118) reflects the three opinions according to which it may be recited at evening:
Hear O’ Israel Hashem is our G-d Hashem is One
שְׁמַע יִשְׂרָאֵל יְהוָה אֱלֹהֵינוּ יְהוָה אֶחָד
The last word of the Talmud (Seder Tahoroth) Masechet- "Uktzin"- עוּקְצִין is "In Peace"- בַשָּׁלוֹם.  The word "Uktzin" is the plural of the word "Ukatz"-   עוּקָץor "Oketz"- עוֹקֶץ which means either sting, point, thorn or tail, and is a derivative of the verb "prick" or "sting"-עָקֹץ. This Tractate of the Mishna deals in the main with stalks and shells (or rinds) of fruits and vegetables with regard to their susceptiveness and unsusceptiveness to ritual uncleanness, to imparting ritual uncleanness, and to effectiveness as connectives. After discussing these matters the Masechet finishes with the following words:
Rabbi Yehoshua ben Levi said, the Holy One, blessed be He, will at a future time cause all the righteous to inherit three hundred and ten worlds, as it is says "That I may cause those that love Me to inherit substance, and that I may fill their treasuries (Proverbs 8.21). Rabbi Shimon ben Chalafta said, The Holy One blessed be He, found no vessel that could hold the blessing for Israel save "Peace", as it is said, "Hashem will give strength unto His People; Hashem will bless His People with Peace (Psalm 29.11).
אָמַר רַבִּי יְהוֹשֻׁעַ בֶּן לֵוִי, עָתִיד הַקָּדוֹשׁ בָּרוּךְ הוּא לְהַנְחִיל לְכָל צַדִּיק וְצַדִּיק שְׁלשׁ מֵאוֹת וַעֲשָׂרָה עוֹלָמוֹת, שֶׁנֶּאֱמַר (משלי ח), לְהַנִחִיל אֹהֲבֵי יֵשׁ וְאֹצְרֹתֵיהֶם אֲמַלֵּא. אָמַר רַבִּי שִׁמְעוֹן בֶּן חֲלַפְתָּא, לֹא מָצָא הַקָּדוֹשׁ בָּרוּךְ הוּא כְּלִי מַחֲזִיק בְּרָכָה לְיִשְׂרָאֵל אֶלָּא הַשָּׁלוֹם, שֶׁנֶּאֱמַר (תהלים כט),יהוה עֹז לְעַמּוֹ יִתֵּן יהוה יְבָרֵךְ אֶת עַמּוֹ בַשָּׁלוֹם:
Applying the principle of Torah exegesis found in the Book of Formation (1.7) written by our Father Abraham that:
The end of all matters are found in their beginnings
And the beginning of all matters are found in their ends
נעוץ סופן בתחלתן ותחלתן בסופן
We learn that the Talmud is encrypted in the Code of Hai and is hinting to us through its first and last passages (words) by asking a question from beginning to end and from end to beginning:
From When-In Peace?
מֵאֵימָתַי- בַשָּׁלוֹם
879 +2 words=881=17=8
1439=17=8 or + 2 words=19=10=1 (Mem 600)

When Peace?
The answer is when Israel will return to Hashem by reciting the Shema Prayer before their Final Redemption at the evening time of the entrance of the Shabbat of Hashem.
Within the word "Uktzin"- עוּקְצִין we find the word "Keitz"- קיץwhich means "end" and the remaining outer letters-עון have a gematria of 776. This is a clue that then "End" will arrive in the year 5776. Then Israel will recite the Shema Prayer and be redeemed through their Mashiach. This will be the "sting"- עוֹקֶץ in the tail (at the end)!
·       End-  קֵץ
·       76-     עוֹ
The word can also mean that the end (plural) is a multiplication of 76 which refers to the year 5776:
·       76-                             עוּ
·       Ends (Plural of ) - קְצִין
Then there shall be Peace for Israel.
The word "Uktzin" can also be understood as:
·       Zion-  ציון
·       170-   ק"ע= 8
 The joint gematria of the names of the two Masechtot is:
The Blessings shall be for Israel and the sting shall be for the nations that have vexed her over the centuries!
763=2 words=18
Sting-The Nations
עוקץ- הגוים
330+2 words=8
1700=8 or + 2 words=10=1 (final letters)
The Blessing of Peace at the End will arrive through the Unification of the Name of Hai by Mashiach; the unification of the metaphysical world with the physical world (8 to 1 and 1 to 8).
Hashem will give strength unto His People; Hashem will bless His People with Peace
יהוה עֹז לְעַמּוֹ יִתֵּן יהוה יְבָרֵךְ אֶת עַמּוֹ בַשָּׁלוֹם

Hashem will give strength unto His People
יהוה עֹז לְעַמּוֹ יִתֵּן

Hashem will bless His People with Peace
יהוה יְבָרֵךְ אֶת עַמּוֹ בַשָּׁלוֹם

At this time Israel will cry out in Prayer:

Hear O’ Israel Hashem is our G-d Hashem is One
שְׁמַע יִשְׂרָאֵל יְהוָה אֱלֹהֵינוּ יְהוָה אֶחָד
And they will rest:



The Name of Hashem appears 1820 times in the Torah
