These two measures of typical time to the sun and moon (compared with the semi-diurnal arc of 105, as of the longest day in N. Lat. 30', or the Eden of Jewish typical prophecy,) give us 144 less 105 = 39. Can this have any typical reference to the 3S kings of Egypt in the first part of the Canon of Eratosthenes, extending from the beginning of the kingdom with Mcnes to its first breaking up in the days of Amunthanfceus! For 39 would seem to number 4 Egyptian weeks of 8 days, increased by the Jewish week of 7 davs, as in substitution for the Baalistic weeklv evele of 6 days, on rejecting the M ODES; for 4 x S = 32 + G = 38. Note "also 38 monthly cycles of 28 days with a remainder of 12 = the 1,076 days of years. Thus for the 38 Egyptian kings of Eratosthenes, it is not improbable that the Israelites, on their exodus, may have substituted a divine age of 40, from a basis of 4 for half the old Egyptian week of 8 days. Such a divine age would substitute 5 cycles of 8, as 8 of 5 = 40, for that of 10 x 7 = 70, as the symbol of their religious traditions respecting the 70 sons who came out of Jacob's loins. Hence the 40 years wandering of Israel in the wilderness of Sinai, in condemnation for their setting up therein the star of their god Semphan and the calves of their idolatrous Nodal worship in Egypt. Exod. xxxii. 8, as an idolatry renewed by Jeroboam, I. Kings xii. 28, with Acts vii. 40-44. Hence, therefore, the relation of these 40-+-30 (for the month of the cutting off) to the 70 days of years numbered over the Babylonian captivity. If this position be sound, it opens out a probable clu...
