The main goal is to explain Biblical numbers with a slight "French touch" through a few fragments extracted from the main chapter dedicated to the number 153. But many remarks and paragraphs have been erased from the original pages as far as they only can be understood in French, including meaning, sound and something that could be called "logometry".
" [...] And the waters prevailed on the earth a hundred and fifty days. And God remembered Noah, and all the animals, and all the cattle that were with him in the ark; and God made a wind to pass over the earth, and the waters subsided. And the fountains of the deep and the windows of heaven were closed, and the pour of rain from heaven was stopped. And the waters retired from the earth, continually retiring; and in the course of a hundred and fifty days the waters abated. And the ark rested in the seventh month, on the seventeenth day of the month, on the mountains of Ararat. (Genesis 7/24 and 8/1-4).
