Adam to Noah ( conversion fix)

Post by Ethan » Sat Apr 21, 2018 11:28 pm

Ancient Phoenicians didn't use Base-10, most ancients did not and this is the reason why Eleven & Twelve are not teens because Thirteen was the original ten. the Bible translators have serious issues with 11 and 12, this is why people are not sure between 70 & 72.

Ezekiel 40:49 * contradictory translations*
KJV - 20 cubits wide, 11 cubits breadth
NIV - 20 cubits wide, 12 cubits breadth
NLT - 35 cubits wide , 21 feet breadth
ESV - 20 cubits wide, 12 cubits breadth
GNT - 34 cubits wide, 20 feet breadth

The numbers used for these patriarchs were originally in Base-12, thus conversion errors and here are the fixes.

Genesis 3 168 years between Adam & Flood - fall of tyre 12*14
Adam lived an 19 years, and begat a son in his own likeness, after his image; and called his name Seth
And the days of Adam after he had begotten Seth were 58 years: and he begat sons and daughters
And all the days that Adam lived were 77 years: and he died.

And Seth lived 17 years, and begat Enos:
And Seth lived after he begat Enos 58 years, and begat sons and daughters:
And all the days of Seth were 76 years and he died.

And Enos lived 15 years and begat Cainan:
And Enos lived after he begat Cainan 66 years, and begat sons and daughters
And all the days of Enos were 75 years and he died.

And Cainan lived 14 years, and begat Mahalaleel:
And Cainan lived after he begat Mahalaleel 61 years, and begat sons and daughters
And all the days of Cainan were 75years : and he died.

And Mahalaleel lived 14 years, and begat Jared
And Mahalaleel lived after he begat Jared 60 years, and begat sons and daughters
And all the days of Mahalaleel were 74 years: and he died.

And Jared lived an 14 years, and he begat Enoch
And Jared lived after he begat Enoch 66 years, and begat sons and daughters
And all the days of Jared were 80 years: and he died.

And Enoch lived 13 years, and begat Methuselah:
And Enoch walked with God after he begat Methuselah 16 years, and begat sons and daughters
And all the days of Enoch were 29 years

And Methuselah lived 14 years and begat Lamech
And Methuselah lived after he begat Lamech 66 years , and begat sons and daughters
And all the days of Methuselah were 80 years: and he died

And Lamech lived 12 years, and begat a son
And Lamech lived after he begat Noah 50 years, and begat sons and daughters
And all the days of Lamech were 62 years: and he died.

And Noah was 42 years old: and Noah begat Shem, Ham, and Japheth
And Noah was 50 year old when the flood of waters was upon the earth.
And Noah lived after the flood 29 years.
And all the days of Noah were 79 years: and he died.

The Generations between Shem & Abraham in the MSS are wrong, only the Septuagint have the correct calculable numerical values, for example in the MSS, Eber begot Pelag at 30 (aged 2) but this is 130 (aged 12) , along with the removal of Cain II (son of Arfax), only the LXX values average out with the ages between Adam & Noah. The period between Flood & Abraham would then be 96 Years ( 12 x 8 ) and total years between Adam & Abraham is 264 Years ( 22x12)
