And upon your sword you shall live
וְעַל חַרְבְּךָ תִחְיֶה
וְעַל חַרְבְּךָ תִחְיֶה
40.’ And upon your sword you shall live and you shall serve your brother; and it shall be that when you shall be aggrieved, that you may remove his yoke from off your neck-וְעַל חַרְבְּךָ תִחְיֶה וְאֶת אָחִיךָ תַּעֲבֹד וְהָיָה כַּאֲשֶׁר תָּרִיד וּפָרַקְתָּ עֻלּוֹ מֵעַל צַוָּארֶךָ(4191+13 words=4204=10=1).
The verse can be divided so:· And upon- וְעַל (106+1 word=8);
· Your sword you shall live, and you shall serve your brother-חַרְבְּךָ תִחְיֶה וְאֶת אָחִיךָ תַּעֲבֹד (1575=18);
· And it shall be that when you shall be aggrieved, that you may remove his yoke from off your neck- וְהָיָה כַּאֲשֶׁר תָּרִיד וּפָרַקְתָּ עֻלּוֹ מֵעַל צַוָּארֶךָ (2510=8).
The number 4204 corresponds to the number 424 which is the gematria of the name "Mashiach son of David"- משיח בן דוד.
He will take upon himself the burden of Torah and remove the yoke of the enemies from Israel.
The gematria of the word “your sword”- חַרְבְּךָ is 710=8 counting final Kaf as 500.
Rashi states that when Israel will transgress the Torah then Esau’s descendants will have a claim to be aggrieved over the blessings Jacob took and then they are permitted to remove his yoke. When Israel rejects Torah they will be unworthy to dominate others (Beraishit Rabbah 67.7).
In order to derive the benefit from the blessings of the firstborn one has to behave like a firstborn. Thus Jacob went to the Yeshiva of Ever and studied there for 14 years.
The gematria of the word “aggrieved”- תָּרִיד is 614 which correspond to the 613 Mitzvoth of the Torah + 1 for the word.
Thus performing the 613 Mitzvoth make Israel worthy to dominate and render Esau as impotent.
The number 614 just so happens to be the gematria of my name.

The gematria of the words “that you may remove his yoke from off your neck”- וּפָרַקְתָּ עֻלּוֹ מֵעַל צַוָּארֶךָ is 1349=17=8.
This lesson will be finally learnt by Israel at the “End of Days” when Israel returns to Hashem through their Mashiach who will rebuild the Temple in Jerusalem and fulfill the Prophecy of the Prophet Obadiah (1.21):
21.’And saviors shall ascend onto Mount Zion to judge the Mount of Esau, and to Hashem shall be the Kingdom- וְעָלוּ מוֹשִׁעִים בְּהַר צִיּוֹן לִשְׁפֹּט אֶת הַר עֵשָׂו וְהָיְתָה לַיהוָה הַמְּלוּכָה (4140=1+8 counting final Nun and Mem as 700 and 600).
And the prophecy of the Prophet Zachariah (14.9):
9.’ And Hashem shall be King over the entire earth-וְהָיָה יְהוָה לְמֶלֶךְ עַל כָּל הָאָרֶץ (1908=18 counting final Zadik and Kaf as 900 and 500); on that day shall Hashem be One- בַּיּוֹם הַהוּא יִהְיֶה יְהוָה אֶחָד(144=1+8), and His Name be One- וּשְׁמוֹ אֶחָד (365=14=8).
The number 414 is tenfold the gematria of the words "Infinite Divine light"- אור אין סוף.
The number 144 is the gematria of "Kedem"- קדם"Origin"-The World to Come.
The number 441 is the gematria of the word "Truth"- אמת.
There we shall bask in the Infinite Light that was hidden away at the time of Creation.
And discover the Truth!
