Does Genesis 7:11 say:
A) the floodwaters burst open in the 17th day, the second month of the 600th year of Noah's life,
B) the floodwaters burst open in the 17th day, the second month in the 600th year of Noah's life
In other words does this passage give any indication as to whether the day and month given are of the calendar year or the year of Noah's life?
The difference would be analogous to: Was it on February 17 or was it 2 months and 17 days after Noah's birthday
I am endeavoring to discern if this plays into the difficulty in the time table surrounding the dates given for the flood and the genealogies given for Noah, Shem and Arphaxad. I want to explore all the possible ambiguities with integrity.
