In the latter part of the parashah (Numbers 11:27), we find Eldad and Meidad prophecizing, “Eldad and Meidad are prophecizing in the camp” (אֶלְדָּד וּמֵידָד מִתְנַבְּאִים בַּמַּחֲנֶה). There are three different opinions (*Sanhedrin* 17a) regarding what they prophecized about: 1) that Moses would not enter the Land of Israel, 2) about the quail, 3) about the war of Gog and Magog. “Eldad and Meidad are prophecizing in the camp” (**אֶלְדָּד וּמֵידָד מִתְנַבְּאִים בַּמַּחֲנֶה**) equals 751, the same as the sum of “Moses” (**מֹשֶׁה**), “quail” (**שְׂלָו**), and “God and Magog” (**גּוֹג וּמָגוֹג**).

According to one opinion, Eldad and Meidad prophecized that “Moses would pass-on, and Joshua would bring-in” (*Sanhedrin* 17a). We can say that each had one half of the prophecy. The value of Moses (מֹשֶׁה) in ordinal numbering is 39 (מ is 13, ש is 21, and ה is 5), which is the value of Eldad (**אֶלְדָּד**). The value of Joshua (יְהוֹשֻׁעַ) in ordinal numbering is 58 (י is 10, ה is 5, ו is 6, ש is 21, and ע is 16), the same as the value of Meidad (**מֵידָד**).

Eldad and Meidad reflect the secret of pentagonal numbers (see https://oeis.org/A000326) in the Torah. There is a mathematical rule that an odd number multiplied by the sum of that number and its midpoint minus 1 equals a pentagonal number. In our case, the value of Eldad (**אֶלְדָּד**) is 39, an odd number. The sum of 39 and 19 (its midpoint, 20, minus 1) gives us 58, the value of Meidad (**מֵידָד**). Their product is 2262, a pentagonal number!
