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.
