Trump in the Torah

Version 22 of the Bar Ilan Responsa Project has an option to allow searching for words in code in equal intervals between 1 and 100.
Out of curiosity I checked where does the name Trump appear in the Torah.
I got two results.
He appears in intervals of 73 starting from the first word in Shmot (Exodus 23:30) and ending in the third word of Shmot (Exodus 24:3)

He also appears in intervals of 2 in Vayikra (Leviticus 14:11).


In Hebrew מ and ם  are the same letter. Out of respect for the name of the Creator of the Universe, Bar Ilan Responsa Project used the letter ק to represent the letter ה in that name. In the real Biblical text ה is used.

This is the translation of Shmot (Exodus 23:30) to Shmot (Exodus 24:3) according to

23:30 I will drive [the inhabitants] out little by little, giving you a chance to increase and [fully] occupy the land.
23:31 I will set your borders from the Red Sea to the Philistine Sea, from the desert to the river. I will give the land’s inhabitants into your hand, and you will drive them before you.
23:32 Do not make a treaty with [these nations] or with their gods.
23:33 Do not allow them to reside in your land, since they may then make you sin to Me. You may even end up worshiping their gods, and it will be a fatal trap to you.
24:1 [God] said to Moses, ‘Go up to God along with Aaron, Nadav and Avihuand seventy of the elders of Israel. [All of] you must bow down at a distance.
24:2 Only Moses shall then approach God. The others may not come close, and the people may not go up with him.
24:3 Moses came and told the people all of God’s words and all the laws. The people all responded with a single voice, ‘We will keep every word that God has spoken.’

Vayikra (Leviticus 14:11)  as translated by

14:11 The priest tending to the purification process shall stand [all these items] and the person undergoing purification before God at the Communion Tent entrance.
Appearance of Trump in the Torah testing the range of 1 to 100

The name Donald does not appear in front of either of these codes for Trump.

For those that are curious I searched for the appearance of Donald in range of 1 to 100 in the Torah (the 5 books of Moses) and I found 2 appearances in Bereishit (Genesis chapter 5 verse 18) starting from the name Yered (Jared) in intervals of 79 ending with the word ויולד in 5:25 and the second appearance in Dvarim (Deuteronomy 16:15) starting from the word ידיך  in intervals of 69 ending with the word תרדף  verse 16:20.

At this point in time I am mentioning these facts just to encourage research, but not to draw any conclusions.

Many people have been too quick to draw conclusions and as a result came to wrong analysis of the data.
