Literal Translation and Brief Commentary
of just the 3 'coins'
Or read the full bible code that includes the missing mina!
Three Hebrew/Babylonian coins
formed by the 15 letters put into a 5 x 3 letter-matrix
(We assume the details of the picture
by what the bible code says about itself.)
See "The procedure of decipherment, and the Hebrew," for further details.
Important key-words in this bible code:
Daniel interpreted the writing on the wall for that time: It foretold the demise of Babylon and her king. Yet there is a another secret message here about the King
of kings! The bible code reinterprets "mene, mene, tekel, uparsin" as a prophecy about Jesus Christ, and about the doom of His enemies.
'Mene' (i.e., mina) can mean "numbered," (as Daniel said), but it was also a Babylonian coin worth 60 shekels. This code personifies the 'Mina-coin' to
represent Jesus Christ, as 'Redeemer.' He/it is the 'redemption price' for man's sins.
"Tekel" and "Peres" were also coins worth "a shekel" and "half-a-mina" (or 30-shekels) respectively. Likewise, Jesus was betrayed for 30-shekels. Hence, ponder the play on words in the following excerpt from the code:
"They afflicted me! I will sleep the sleep of death.
I will be divided asunder!"'" ('peres' = 'divided' = '30 shekels')
Peres, as said, means "divided," but it can also mean, "the breaking of bread" (of His body); and, as said, it means a 'peres-coin;' yet the word can also mean
"Persia," i.e., the country that conquered Babylon. The bible code makes use of all four meanings in a quadruple play on words! (See the Hebrew for other plays on words in the code.)
The text about "vomit," and "spit out," etc., may seem crude, but the Bible often makes use of such descriptive language, especially through the prophets. Recall the context of the bible code: Using God's holy cups,
Belshazzar was having a blasphemous drunken party. To fit the punishment to the crime, therefore, the code is saying that just as they were drunk and vomiting, so the earth will vomit them from their graves one day, (Lev. 18:28). Compare to the words of
Jeremiah the prophet, who likewise spoke concerning Babylon:
"Thus says the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel: Drink, get drunk and vomit, fall and rise no more, because of the sword that I am sending among you," (Jer. 25:27).
The code often draws scornful contrasts between Belshazzar's death (that occurred a few hours after the writing) and that of the death of Jesus Christ. The use of scorn
and contrasts are also common among the writings of the prophets.
The enemy (Belshazzar) that mocked God at his rebellious feast (Daniel 5:1-4, 22-23) is now in turn "mocked." He is called a "rotting crumb" in contrast to Jesus as "manna." (Similar to the metaphor of
the weighty "mina" as compared to the lowly 'half-shekel.") The "accursed" "crumb" will be "vomited" and "spit out" of His 'grave' because even the grave ("jealous" for God's honor) is disgusted with
him!---this in contrast with Christ's victorious resurrection and exaltation to God's right hand. Daniel 12:2,4, reads: " And many of them that sleep in the dust of the earth shall awake, some to everlasting life, and some to shame and everlasting contempt...
But thou, O Daniel, shut up the words, and seal the book, even to the time of the end: many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall be increased."
Compare the book of Acts ch. 2: "He seeing this before spake of the resurrection of Christ, that his soul was not left in hell (i.e., sheol), neither his flesh did see corruption.
This Jesus hath God raised up, whereof we all are witnesses. Therefore being by the right hand of God exalted..." (Acts 2:31-33)
The bible code begins the way it ends---that is, with a quadruple play on words. The word "banner" can mean a "banner," or a "rallying-flag," or a "sign/wonder," or a "pole." It is
the same word used when the snake was lifted up on the 'pole' in the wilderness that whoever looked to it was healed of their snake bites. God had sent the snakes as punishment for their grumbling against the manna, for "they put God to
the test," (Num 21:4-9, Ex. 17:7. Ps. 95:9, etc.). Jesus referred to this same pole as being a type of His cross, (Jn. 3:14). Amazingly, the code also refers to the 'pole,' 'their healing,' 'manna,' 'putting God to the test,'
and 'faithful correction' (Deut. 8:2-5) ---all key elements in this wilderness-wandering story.
"Mene, mene, tekel, uparsin:
The One putting him to death is the one concealing them!"
(That is, 'concealing the bible codes.')
Three Hebrew/Babylonian coins
formed by the 15 letters put into a 3 x 5 letter-matrix
(Words of Jesus are in red.
Only the title is paraphrased, the rest is translated normally.)
Even when decoded, this bible code riddle must still be interpreted.
It was the same way for Daniel too, (Daniel 5:16).
It is a good idea to refresh your memory of the actual bible text of Daniel chapter 5, (i.e., The Writing on the Wall). Also, a familiarity with the book of Revelation
is very helpful when interpreting.
Count the coins, O' you of little worth!
I will test them with this oracle!
(They number 30 shekels, or 6-6-6!
But to the Jew, 1260 x 2 gerahs.
They were besieged 390 + 40 days .
The first part of the bible code encircles/besieges the "tekel/shekel" seven times.)
Amen! Amen! And the banner/flag/wonder that heals them!
Our oracle is a banner/flag/wonder that brings healing!
(meaning: "numbered" or, a "mina" worth 60 shekels)
"They numbered me, (the One being rejected!)"
Turn/repent here on account of our oracle!
We will instruct (you) here.
Because of His faithfulness we will instruct (you) here; (or, "...we will chastise here," cf., Isa. 53:5)
because of the Faithful One and the banner/wonder/cross that heals them.
Our oracle is a banner/wonder/pole/cross that brings healing! (Completes 7x around.)
Upon His pole (cross),
"It is finished!"
the Mighty One who was numbered cried aloud!
(or "...the Mina of God cried out!")
The Mina will be hidden away!
(And/or "'God's numbering' or 'manna' or 'prophecy' will be hidden away!")
(Or may read: "They put a flawless One to the test---The Mina of God!
"Shout aloud, O' Mina! for it [the prophecy] will be kept secret!"
Or, "They put a flawless one to the test!
Mene: a Mighty one cried out, "Let (the message) be carefully concealed!")
(Acrostic for 'mina' and 'half-mina') "He is angry with them!"
(meaning: "weighed," "paid," or, "a shekel")
(Acrostic for 'tekel') "A tekel arose---the great weight of His wrath!"
Or, "The light-weights under His wrath made light of His death."
He cried out; having been pierced He groaned.
Behold them (i.e., the coins)! Read them as a warning-sign!
You will most certainly be weighed/paid O' enemy! (or, '...certainly rise up [in the scales]...')
For He is risen and is taking revenge!
O' Mina, rise up now!
For You shall cast down the one being mocked,
the bland-tasting one
and his rebellion!
O' Jealous One,
Spit out the accursed thing!
O' powerful jaw!
Vomit out his decay!
Where is decay?
A crumb will be felt (in their mouth),
and they will gladly spit it out!
(meaning: "Persia," "divided," or, "half-a-minah" worth 30 shekels)
"They afflicted me! I will sleep the sleep of death.
I will be divided asunder!
Where is the One who was put to death?
---Yet, He will close-up (their eyes).---
"I will not sleep his death,
(The second part of this Bible code prophecy,
at every-other letter around the same central 3 letters
---both horizontal and vertical matrixes---same order as before---both directions.)
"I will sleep, but he is terrified!
He perished; he refused the banner!"
" O' accursed day!
The day that He was inflicted with curses, having been numbered.
They put God to the test!
Yet, concealed by God is a flawless banner!
God is a banner, O' (doubting) Thomas!
and He is Manna, a Lion, and a Mina!
(We will proclaim Him who was caused to disappear.)
He slept, but then He appeared!
He slept, but then He appeared
in order to prove, O' China,
that He did not die,
O' China, that He is not a myth!
(At every 3 letters around the central 3 letters
---vertical matrix only---same order as before, both directions.)
He will give me light
---but they will refuse (it).
I will be numbered by them!
I will be delivered up!
I remained (there) but a short while. (i.e., in the grave)
(At every 4 letters around the central 3 letters
---horizontal and vertical matrixes---same order as before, both directions.
Note: The writing on the wall was interpreted by the light of a lamp, Daniel 5:5,
perhaps the same menorah stolen by the Babylonians, Daniel 5:3.
This part of the code explains the meaning of this lamp.)
Who is my mother?
(The banner of light tested them.)
He was angry---
She mourned His Lamp,
a terrifying symbol---
His Lamp melted (them) (or, "...Lamp was melted.")
Terrifying wrath went on without end. (A play on words: lit., "...around and around.")
I will give a sign: (Revelation 12.)
"Who is my mother?"
(And the light weighed them.) (i.e., weighed/tested them in the balances.)
(The question asked twice, "Who is my mother" is the key to understanding this last part of the riddle. That phrase was spoken by Jesus but once, as recorded in the gospels. Note Mark 3:31-35
with Luke 8:16-21---and context!
" There came then his brethren and his mother, and, standing without, sent unto him, calling him. And the multitude sat about him, and they said unto him, Behold, thy mother and thy brethren without seek for thee. And he answered them,
saying, Who is my mother, or my brethren? And he looked round about on them which sat about him, and said, Behold my mother and my brethren! For whosoever shall do the will of God, the same is my brother, and my sister, and mother."
" No man, when he hath lighted a candle (lamp), covereth it with a vessel, or putteth it under a bed; but setteth it on a candlestick, that they which enter in may see the light. For nothing is secret, that shall not be made manifest;
neither any thing hid, that shall not be known and come abroad. Take heed therefore how ye hear: for whosoever hath, to him shall be given; and whosoever hath not, from him shall be taken even that which he seemeth to have. Then came to him his mother and his brethren, and
could not come at him for the press. And it was told him by certain which said, Thy mother and thy brethren stand without, desiring to see thee. And he answered and said unto them, My mother and my brethren are these which hear the word of God, and do it. Also see,
