That certainly makes more sense grammatically. But there is a semantic
problem. Can WAYYELEK in v.3 mean "he arrived", which would have been on
the third day, rather than "he set out"?
An alternative is that there is an understood but omitted WAYHIY at the
beginning of v.4. This would then fit the common pattern WAYHIY B-(time
SM: WAYYELEK is often translated "came" which includes the meaning of
arrived: Gen 29:1, Ruth 2:11, 2 Sam 18:25, Ezra 10:6.
