And the noun ראיה re-ee-ya, which stands for the ability to see, as a fruit of being wise. Being wise refers to the fact of seeing beyond the flesh eyes, the secret level in Hebrew סוד Sod which operates the life on earth.
Another aspect of the word Arye אריה (lion) is its numeral value. The numeral value of the word אריה lion Arye, is 216, as the word bravery in Hebrew גבורה Gevurah.
