>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 the same point at all. The word "week" is based on the

>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.
