"I have more understanding than all my teachers: for thy testimonies are my meditation.
I understand more than the ancients, because I keep thy precepts." {Psalms 119:99-100]

This is the type of understanding we need to calculate the number of the Beast, it is about divine Inspiration, and this is not taught in Theology school.
The word 'PSALMS' means a poem put to music. It is written about Jesus, from men under the Holy Spirit of God. And they are also Prayers. Each Psalm is for a different purpose of need. And very sacred. The Psalms are Praises.
In Matthew 26:29-30, Jesus sung hymns with His disciples, "I tell you, I will not drink of this fruit of the vine from now on until the day when I drink it anew with you in My Father’s kingdom. And when they had sung a hymn, they went out to the Mount of Olives. "

Psalms are songs that you sing with a string instrument. Prophets have received divine Inspiration through song, and it is Divine Inspiration that men like David, his son Solomon have written these Psalms.
When an evil spirit was plaguing Saul, it was these heavenly Music, singing of the Psalms, that removed it.
"But the Spirit of the LORD departed from Saul, and an evil spirit from the LORD troubled him. And Saul's servants said unto him, Behold now, an evil spirit from God troubleth thee. Let our lord now command thy servants, which are before thee, to seek out a man, who is a cunning player on an harp: and it shall come to pass, when the evil spirit from God is upon thee, that he shall play with his hand, and thou shalt be well. And Saul said unto his servants, Provide me now a man that can play well, and bring him to me. Then answered one of the servants, and said, Behold, I have seen a son of Jesse the Beth'-le-hem-ite, that is cunning in playing, and a mighty valiant man, and a man of war, and prudent in matters, and a comely person, and the LORD is with him. " {1Samuel 16:14-18} When David the servant of God played, the evil spirit left Saul.

These Psalms, songs, are Praise and divine worship, about Christ, "And David himself saith in the book of Psalms, THE LORD SAID UNTO MY LORD, SIT THOU ON MY RIGHT HAND, TILL I MAKE THINE ENEMIES THY FOOTSTOOL." "And He said unto them, These are the words which I spake unto you, while I was yet with you, that all things must be fulfilled, which were written in the law of Moses, and in the prophets, and in the psalms, concerning me. Then opened He their understanding, that they might understand the scriptures."(Luke 20:42-43,24:44-45) and from Christ, Prayers, that are set to music to Praise God. Psalm 119 is a large Psalm, and is divided into sections, and headed with Hebrew alphabets, that has meanings. Psalm 119:1-8, is headed with the letter 'Aleph' in your Bibles, 'Aleph' is the name of GOD, Psalm 119:9-16 is headed with the letter "Beth/Bayith' meaning 'House/House of God/ or the body as a house, Psalm 119:17-24 is headed with the letter 'Gimel' which means, Gamel, like something carrying a load, something lifted up from it's knees. These have very powerful and sacred meanings. It is knowledge given to us mere mortals from God, our Lord Jesus Christ blessed be His name forever Amen, and Amen.

Two sardonyx stones were fixed in settings of gold on the High Priest's shoulders; one on the right, and one on the left. The names of the tribes of Israel were engraved upon these two stones, according to the instructions of the verse: "And you shall take two sardonyx stones, and engrave upon them the names of the children of Israel; there shall be six names on one stone, and six names on the second stone in the order of their birth." (Ex. 28:9-10)
So on the shoulder of the High Priest, on each side of his shoulder one stone with six names on each shoulder, bearing the twelves tribes of Israel, and not only their names were on these stones but their date of birth.
"With the work of an engraver in stone, like the engravings of a signet, shalt thou engrave the two stones with the names of the children of Israel: that shalt make them to be set in ouches of gold." {Exodus 28:11}
'like the engravings of a signet' a signet ring is what a King uses to Seal things with, his imprint is at the top of the ring, and he presses it in wax and or ink and Seals it.
Some of the meanings of the word 'engrave' in Hebrew it is called in word 'pethach' which means - to open wide (lit and fig) to loosen, i.e. door (gate) to cause to flow, to draw a sword, and to solve[a riddle], we must pay close attention to what it means to engrave something, it is to set forth something and this is one of the reason why God said, no tool must be laid on any altar dedicated to Him, as to carve something in the altar with an engraver tool. This engraving that was ordered by the Lord was the physical Sealing of the twelve tribes of Israel, what is in Revelation 7:1-8, "Saying, Hurt not the earth, neither the sea, nor the trees, till we have sealed the servants of our God [in their foreheads."] IN THEIR FOREHEADS, because it has to do with the mind, the Remembrance and Acceptance of Truth,is the Spiritual Sealing of 'Truth, in the minds of the twelve tribes of Israel. Understand they will be Sealed by Truth, a message of Truth that will come to them. ' "He that hath received his testimony hath set to his seal that God is true." {John 3:33}
Let's look at 'The Two Sardonyx Stones' carried on the High Priest shoulder. These Sardonyx are Purple, and set in gold.
"Remembrance Stones"
The Bible calls these two stones "remembrance stones," as it is written, "And you shall place the two stones on the two shoulder pieces of the ephod as remembrance stones for the children of Israel. And Aaron shall carry their names before G-d on his two shoulders as a remembrance." {Exodus 28:12} The Purple stones that the names were written on are called Remembrance stones.
"…Produce fruit worthy of repentance. And do not presume to say to yourselves, ‘We have Abraham as our father.’ For I tell you that out of these stones God can raise up children for Abraham. The ax lies ready at the root of the trees, and every tree that does not produce good fruit will be cut down and thrown into the fire.…" {Matthew 3:8-10}

"For it is written, that Abraham had two sons, the one by a bondmaid, the other by a freewoman. {Galatians 4:22}
Who was the free woman in this?
Now we know that Abraham had a son with hagar Sarah's made, Ismael, but this was not the will of God. So we know that sin is bondage.
Sarah had a son by Abraham his name is Isaac, one who was blessed by the Lord, for Sarah was Abraham's wife, because this was in accordance to the law of God, Sarah is used as the free woman, Hagar the one in bondage.

"But he who was of the bondwoman was born after the flesh; but he of the freewoman was by the promise." { Galatians 4:23} So we see that the blessings of God could not come through Ismael, though God blessed him, because of Abraham, but the blessing inwhich all nations were to be blessed had to come from a legal union with in the law.
"Which things are an allegory; for these are the two covenants; the one from the mount Si'-nai, which gendereth to bondage, which is A'-gar. For this A'-gar is mount Si-nai in Arabia, and answereth to Jerusalem which now is, and is in bondage with her children." {Galatians 4:24-25}
What is an allegory? It means that there is a Spiritual meaning behind what this Scripture is saying. You see it is the Law of God that shows us what is sin. So this sin is revealed in A'-gar, A'-gar gave birth to Arabia, a result from the bondage of sin. Ishmael is the son of Abraham and A'-gar, A'-gar who was Sarah's maid. Now understand that God does not want us to have children outside of marriage, this is also a hidden meaning here. God did not accept this child outside of marriage, and this is why A'-gar was sent away with her son.
Sarah represents Jerusalem for her child Isaac was from wedlock, within the law of God. So Sarah is the woman that is called free. Then now you might understand this verses.

"But Jerusalem which is above is free, which is the mother of us all. For it is written, REJOICE, THOU BARREN THAT BEAREST NOT; BREAK FORTH AND CRY, THOU THAT TRAVAILEST NOT: FOR THE DESOLATE HATH MANY MORE CHILDREN THAN SHE WHICH HATH AN HUSBAND." {Galatians 4:26-27}
But the most serious statement is test, and this we see before our eyes everyday.
"Now we, brethren, as Isaac was, are the children of promise" Now we as Gentiles are crafted in, through the grace of Christ Jesus.
"But as then he that was born after the flesh persecuted him that was born after the Spirit, even so it is now." {Galatians 4:28;29} The flesh is sin, he that was born after the flesh, which is Ishmael persecutes the one born after the Spirit, which is Isaac. Look at how Muslims which comes from Arabia, is always fighting with Israel. Sin causes us alot of grief, it is for our own good that we should not sin. But this is what the Lord says to this. "Nevertheless what saith the scripture? CAST OUT THE BONDWOMAN AND HER SON: FOR THE SON OF THE BONDWMAN SHALL NOT BE HEIR WITH THE SON OF THE FREEWOMAN." {Galatians 4:30} "And Sarah saw the son of Ha'-gar the Egyptian, which she had born unto Abraham, mocking. Wherefore she said unto Abraham, Cast out this bondwoman and her son: for the son of this bondwoman shall not be heir with my son, even with Isaac. And thing was very grievous in Abraham's sight because of his son. And God said unto Abraham, Let it not be grievous in thy sight because of the lad, and because of thy bondwoman; in all that Sarah hath said unto thee, hearken unto her voice; for in Isaac shall thy seed be called. And also of the son of the bondwoman will I make a nation, because he is thy seed." {Genesis 21:9-13}

What many don't understand especially Seventh day Adventist is how Jews would be Sealed in God's Church? Because this is the Church that the Prophet said, STRIVE WITH ALL YOUR POWER TO BE AMONG THE 144000.

"Let us strive with all the power that God has given us to be among the hundred and forty-four thousand. And let us do all that we can to help others to gain heaven."--Review and Herald, March 9, 1905.

To understand this we must know the history of the scattering of the tribes of Israel.
The Last straw that caused God to scatter the tribes of Israel was "Idolatry" and to know this we must study the Old Testament. Let no one tell you we don't need the Old Testament, this is why the world is in confusion today.
