# 207

This number is a composite.

The smallest possible sum of primes which are formed using each of the digits 1 through 9, i.e., 89 + 61 + 43 + 7 + 5 + 2 = 207. [Gupta]

207 = 3*3*23 and 3^207 + 3^207 + 23^207 is prime.

The numerical value of the word "light" (אור) is 207 in the Torah. Notice that 207 is composite (i.e., 9 * 23), and the 9th prime is 23. Are prime numbers encoded in the Bible? [Homewood]
