Comment: Re: SHK 18.0513 Kent's Banishment
Many thanks, Kerry, for clarifying. I, too, wonder where editors Wells
and Taylor got their versions. Apparently, that is just plain wrong.
Weird. Clearly the math looked confusing via the wrong text-- I could
not understand where the "ten" was coming from.
And I agree that your take on "the tenth day following" (as I saw the
misquoted "seventh day following" sounding very like a week for leaving)
might indeed make it "fifteen/sixteen [days], respectively."
Thanks again for running the text in question for us!
