Dear James,

>Yes! Very astutely observed. But seven what....?

HH: In Daniel 9 I believe that it is seven years. You should be able 
to see this from the parallels between Dan 9:27 and Daniel 11:7, 11 
and several clarifying passages in Revelation.

>It's not surprising that it can designate a seven of days or years.
>But YWM is not a numerical word. It is not based on the number one.
>It means day.
