Jared is the Patriarch in Genesis 5 who is Enoch's father, his name means Descend. He seems to be Old Testament embodiment of the concept of the Descending as it applies to the 1 Thessalonians 4:46-47 two stage event.
Strong's numbers for Jared are:
first verse with a total verse gematria of 2391 =
And he divided himself against them, he and his servants, by night, and smote them, and pursued them unto Hobah, which is on the left hand of DAMASCUS.
(this is the first mention of Damascus)
first verse in the Bible with a total verse gematria of 3382 =
And Isaac sent away Jacob: and he went to Padanaram unto Laban, son of Bethuel the SYRIAN, the brother of Rebekah, Jacob's and Esau's mother.
it seems so very improbable (though, I admit, not impossibe) that the Strong's numbers for Jared converted to total verse gematria numbers yield verses that contain both Damascus and Syria, capitol and country.
It still seems to indicate that the Damascus, Syria connection to the Descending (of the Lord Jesus Christ Himself) is strong.
and by way of reminder:
first Bible verse mention of Jared and it's total verse gematria yielded a cross-Testament match of unquestionable precision:
And Mahalaleel lived sixty and five years, and begat JARED:
Jared means "descend".
total verse gematria = 2600
Strong's greek 2600g =
katabasis = 1) descent 1a) the act of descending 1b) the place of descent 1b1) that part of the mountain where the descent is made
And when he (the Lord Jesus) was come nigh, even now at the DESCENT of the mount of Olives, the whole multitude of the disciples began to rejoice and praise God with a loud voice for all the mighty works that they had seen;
