SARS: Bible Codes Provide a New Perspective: Is SARS a Judgment from God?

The Latest on SARS in the Bible Codes

Originally posted here in mid-April, the article has been updated after many e-mails to the author with suggestions and ideas from code researchers and subscribers all over the world. The result has been a tripling of terms in the matrix, including the introduction of new, very lengthy ELSs.

At a meeting in Kuala Lumpur last week, the World Health Organization (WHO) announced that the SARS virus is officially "contained." The organization lifted a travel warning for Beijing and Hong Kong was taken off the organization's list of SARS-affected areas this week. But WHO officials said that although the situation is improved, the pneumonia-like disease has not been beaten yet.

More than 1,000 doctors, scientists and government officials met in Malaysia to discuss the disease that has killed 800 worldwide and infected approximately 8,500. WHO is taking the position that much more research is needed before health organizations will be able to fully control the virus.

However, the head of the U. S. Centers for Disease Control said that SARS may make a comeback later this year with devastating results. Dr. Julie Gerberding pointed out that an international flu epidemic 85 years ago killed millions after it earlier appeared to subside. The CDC's concerns are based on the ease of travel, especially during the summer months north of the equator.

Economies in nations with the highest number of patients have been staggered by SARS. The pneumonia-like illness has no known cure. Recently announced studies have concluded that the virus can live up to 15 days outside the human body.

Health experts have estimated that it will be "at least one year" before an antidote for the syndrome is available, more likely three years. One source is quoted as saying the disease originated in an undetermined exotic animal and spread through human contact.

A matrix I discovered on SARS is in a passage of Torah text that suggests strongly that Hasehm, or G-d, is allowing or causing this disease. At the beginning of the surface text is this dire warning of what would befall the Children of Israel if they turned away from Him.

    If you do not carefully follow all the words of this law, which are written in this book, and do not revere this glorious and awesome name—the LORD your God, the LORD will send fearful plagues on you and your descendants, harsh and prolonged disasters, and severe and lingering illnesses. He will bring upon you all the diseases of Egypt that you dreaded, and they will cling to you. The LORD will also bring on you every kind of sickness and disaster not recorded in this Book of the Law, until you are destroyed. You who were as numerous as the stars in the sky will be left but few in number, because you did not obey the LORD your God. Just as it pleased the LORD to make you prosper and increase in number, so it will please him to ruin and destroy you. Deuteronomy 28:58-63a (New International Version)

The heart of this matrix is the lungs. More specifically, the health of the lungs is the subject of the matrix. Interestingly, in Hebrew, the word health and lungs is the same: . It makes good sense that in an area of the Bible where G-d discusses the health (and wealth) of the nation of Israel as dependent on following the commandments, a matrix about a very serious health issue is found. The bottom line about very sick lungs is that they no longer function, and breathing ceases. The last term at the bottom of this matrix, dealing with a very serious lung disease, states "no breathing."

Our sages tell us that a healthy soul is in a healthy body. On the other hand when the soul is not healthy (does not obey divine rules) the body is not healthy. This can be viewed as true of an individual, as well as of a nation, or of the world population. The matrix that deals with SARS covers the area where Hashem is laying down the rules, and the consequences of following them or choosing not to follow. The matrix shows that He can bring on sickness or cure. It is up to us.

The codes also suggest that the disease is "not a disease." It is a curse. There are no indications that it is a bacteria, but rather a virus. At this point of writing, the scientists are not yet sure what it is. The codes suggest that the center of the disease is in Asia, they have deviated from the moral path. They tell us that disease is cause (by men) and effect (by Hashem—or, G-d). He can heal, and He has the medicine. This is healing after the affliction. On the other hand, the text explains how to keep good health (good lungs) to begin with.

Following posting of the original article in April, many people responded with interesting comments that helped crystallize the coded message. Some comments are included below and more are welcome. At this point, the message of the matrix appears to be:

    A detailed description of SARS, including its name, that it is scary, lethal, and where and when it began. It also indicates the moral decay that causes the disease, and points out a simple cure. (We must cure the cause, not the symptoms. We must heal our souls—improve our morals as the Bible tells us. Then we will be truly blessed. )

The text of the matrix begins with the curses for specific sins. It continues with blessings for those that will keep the laws. The matrix ends with the weekly portion of the Torah called "LISTEN—haazinu." Once again, it details the terrible things that will happen when the laws are ignored.

We may find a cure for SARS, we may find cures for earlier and later diseases. The Bible tells us in the matrix that there will be new diseases that we do not know! In my opinion, the text of Deuteronomy outlines how to avoid the disease, while in the codes we are given instructions how to be cured after getting the disease (see Section 15 below).

    * The cure for sin: "He who spares his rod hates his child, but he who loves him is careful to discipline him." Proverbs 13:24

The term (virus) in the red box in the matrix segment below is not very prominent on its own. On the other hand, it appears vertically in the matrix and the four lines tell the story. It starts at the top right corner, continues on the second line in the middle, and then three more terms, one below the other, intersect the term. The story is 1.) With high fever and inflammation; 2.) until you will perish; 3.) and the virus/smiting; 4.) is frightening; 6.) in the dark.

It is difficult to show the entire matrix clearly. The center of the matrix at a skip of 55 letters between the lines is shown above. The actual skip between the lines is not really important as the entire text is considered from the first term to the last. What is shown clearly in the above matrix is the interplay of the term:

Bad Health, Hashem is Against Me

The term "health" or "lungs" shares the letter "taf" with the main term "health." It also shares a letter (yod) with the term:

With the Knowledge of China

The connection here is that the bad health was first used against China.

Some of the other terms in the matrix above are the year and month the outbreak started, and that the medicine is in Hashem.

While Moshe was working on the above article, we received another Hebrew spelling of SARS from Nathan Jacobi. It is an acronym for the term

We searched for the term in the Tanakh and discovered it passing through the cluster that Moshe discovered once, and sent the results of the search to Moshe. Here is our extension of the ELS, with the original ELS in red:

After the original article was posted, Moshe received a great deal of e-mail with comments and suggestions for further research. Below are a few of them, edited for space considerations.

China's govt does not allow Bible teaching--illegal.

Maybe the European cure for the flu virus works. You swab out your ears with hydrogen peroxide, which kills the virus in the ear canal and eustachian tubes. The theory which I've read in medical papers, is that the flu virus propagates itself in the ear canal and eustachian tubes and moves down to the throat. So if you catch it early by using a hydrogen peroxide swab in the ears, you eliminate the infection early.

. . . scientists had linked SARS in China to Chlamydia. Well as you probably know Chlamydia is a Sexually Transmitted Disease which could be seen to be by men because of mankind's increased promiscuity.


We present a variety of viewpoints on Bible codes and often accompanying spiritual matters in these web pages, but we don't necessarily agree with all of them. Our view is that bad things that occur may be due either to God's specific judgment, or God allowing such things to take place as a general consequence of mankind's rebellion against Him. We believe it is often not possible to determine which of these is the case in any particular situation.
