The sum of sequence B = 541 = 10th numerical hexagram, thus:

Observe: (1) that this sequence bridges verses 3 and 4, and (2) generates the value representing a fair alternative reading of the word 'Israel' (). Thus, 541 uniform circular counters may be set out on a flat surface to form a perfect Star of David, and Israel is observed to possess the symmetrical form of its own national emblem! - a fact that defies logical explanation - for there exists no evidence to show that this coincidence was intended! Further information on this fascinating matter - and its relationship with Genesis 1:1 - may be found here.
