Gee Wiz Comment
"A day to the Lord is as a thousand years, and a thousand years as a day". (2Peter 3:8)
I always wondered where Peter got this idea since it isn't mentioned in the OT.
Finally while reading through "The Legends of the Jews" I found:
Of his own free will Adam relinquished seventy of his allotted years. His appointed span was to be a thousand years, one of the Lord's days.
That's why Adam only lived 930 years.

A gentle answer turns away wrath, But a harsh word stirs up anger.
