I chose to see if there was anything encoded about the site of the Ark of the Covenant. On searching for the term (ARON BRIT in Hebrew), I found its lowest ELS (considered most significant in Hebrew), I found its lowest ELS (considered most significant) at skip -306 crossed EGYPTIANS WERE BURYING. The intersection was at Numbers 33:4. Chapter and verse reminded me of a longitude (33 degrees 4 minute East) near Israel. The word for LONGITUDE at skip 2 touched both EGYPTIANS WERE BURYING and ARK OF THE COVENANT. But a longitude without a latitude is almost worthless.
One of the six open text Torah mentions of the Ark of the Covenant by that name was at a chapter and verse that corresponded to a latitude near or through Israel - Deuteronomy 31:9, corresponding to 31 degrees 9 minutes North. The intersection of these lines was at a place called the Zuqba peninsula, surrounded by Lake Bardawil in the Sinai of peninsula, surrounded by Lake Bardawil in the Sinai of Northern Egypt. ZUQBA at skip -1 intersects with and shares the letter bet in ARON BRIT. BARDAWIL at skip -303 starts its encoding at the same letter bet.
When I pointed this out to Dr. Eliyahu Rips of Hebrew University, he objected, claiming that by rabbinic tradition the Ark remains buried under Temple Mount in Jerusalem. I then sought JERUSALEM on the same plot. Like BARDAWIL, it was also there at a skip of 303 letters. I soon learned that by Global Positioning Satellite (GPS), the course from Jerusalem to my coordinates at 31-9 North, 33-4 East is 252 degrees True, +/1 a degree of error. On the matrix, the course from the beginning of Jerusalem to that of
