comment Is being “cut off from one's people” the cause or effect of sin?
@Scott Somerville It’s very interesting how author Robert Young compiled his “extremely literal” Young's Literal Translation Bible. He did so to preserve the tense; he thought others were changing it. The Lev 7:27 is just one verse in Scripture where the YLT shows “hath been” tense but other English Bibles don’t.

comment Did original Scripture say Noah was a “son” of 600 years when the water landed?
@fdb I agree with your last comment; there I was explaining simply by using birth forward. Starting from conception when life begins though, (and assuming it's 9 months before birth), when the child has had exactly 3 months go by since birth, today he's into his 2nd year, 1st month, 1st day of...life. We'd say he became 3 months old yesterday; today he's started into his 2nd year of life.

@Frank Luke Q: Would it make more sense to discuss this in the library? (Then I could delete even this comment). The reason I'm taking it to even the day is because the story does.

comment Did original Scripture say Noah was a “son” of 600 years when the water landed?
@Frank Luke If a child were born exactly 1 year ago (yesterday), today he's into his 2nd year, 1st month, 1st day after birth. Therefore, he’s had 1 year, 0 months, and 0 days go by.

comment Did original Scripture say Noah was a “son” of 600 years when the water landed?
Thank you. Here's what I still have as a problem; it has Gen 7:6 being the one verse that doesn't fit the others mathematically. When the floodgates were opened, early in his 600th year of life, only 599 years, 1 month, 16 days of his life had gone by. By the time all was dry again, only 600 years, 1 month, 26 days of his life had gone by. His being 600 years old when the water first landed doesn't fit there.

@kdigital We might want to consider what happened with Enoch in Gen 5:21-24 also.

comment Where is Karkor?
After only finding Karkor on any map as "Karkor (Peniel)" I found an interesting commentary. It says “Karkor. Or, rather, the Karkor.” …possibly being “a walled-in” place Judges 8:10, not necessarily a city.
