Hello all, I found a rather interesting table (IMO) in the Torah by searching for the expression seven nations (שבעה גוים) as spelled in :
Deuteronomy 7:1-2: "When the Lord thy God shall bring thee into the land whither thou goest to possess it, and hath cast out many nations before thee, the Hittites, and the Girgashites, and the Amorites, and the Canaanites, and the Perizzites, and the Hivites, and the Jebusites, seven nations greater and mightier than thou; And when the Lord thy God shall deliver them before thee; thou shalt smite them, and utterly destroy them; thou shalt make no covenant with them, nor shew mercy unto them."
Deutéronome 7:1-2: "כי יביאך יהוה אלהיך אל־הארץ אשׁר־אתה בא־שׁמה לרשׁתה ונשׁל גוים־רבים מפניך החתי והגרגשׁי והאמרי והכנעני והפרזי והחוי והיבוסי שׁבעה גוים רבים ועצומים ממך׃ ונתנם יהוה אלהיך לפניך והכיתם החרם תחרים אתם לא־ תכרת להם ברית ולא תחנם׃"
But also in Franz Delitzsch's Hebrew translation of the New Testament :
Acts 13:19: "And when he had destroyed seven nations in the land of Chanaan, he divided their land to them by lot."
Acts 13:19: "וישמד שבעה גוים בארץ כנען ויחלק את־ארצם להם לנחלה׃"
There was only one occurrence expected statistically in the Torah, and only one appeared (note that 15 occurrences were expected in the entire Old Testament, and 23 appeared, the only occurrence of the Torah being the minimum skip in the entire Old Testament). While examining the text in which it was found, I noticed that on the same column appeared coded in reverse the word Arab(s) (ערבי)
However, after a keyword search with Google, I found the following :
The combined troops of seven Arab nations would sound like a formidable force, but initially there were only 20,000 to 23,500-- outnumbered by 25,000 to 30,000 standing Israeli forces, plus the Jewish paramilitary groups of Lehi, Irgun, and Gadna, and the Jewish Settlement Police. As the war progressed, the Arabs sent more of their armies to Palestine, but Israeli forces were supported by Jewish olim recruits from across Europe, who started arriving in enormous numbers within 48 hours of independence.
Victory over our enemies: In Leviticus Chapter 26, the Torah says, "And five of you will chase 100, and 100 of you will chase 10,000." Israel's war victories were a fulfillment of this verse. This was especially true in 1967 when seven Arab nations called for Israel’s destruction. Israel defeated them all in just six days!
Difficile évidemment de croire à une coïncidence, d'autant que ce genre de constatations est/sont quasiment systématique(s), et qu'il commence à y en avoir un nombre impressionnant.
