Some Torah Numerology

Here's an interesting numerlogy: If you begin reading the 1st chapter of Genesis (in the original
Hebrew language) and find the first T (ת in Hebrew). The first occurrence of this letter is the last letter of the very first word (בראשית). Then skip the next 49 letters to read the 50th letter as vav (ו). You continue this way two more times, every 50th letter, to obtain the word Torah, “תורה,” the Hebrew word for the first five books of the Bible (the Pentateuch).

(You'll find too, that from that 1st Tav in Genesis, were you to skip therefrom over 132 letters,  i.e, every 133rd letter therefrom, you'd also arrive at the same word, Torah. I only checked up to the skip value of 250; So there may well be more such, but larger, equidistant-skip findings.)
