Besides the ordinary uses of this word, the Bible sometimes employs it to denote a year, as in Daniel 4:16 ; or a prophetic year, consisting of three hundred and sixty natural year, a day being taken for a year. Thus in Daniel 7:25 12:7 , the phrase "a time, times, and the dividing of a time" is supposed to mean three and a half prophetic years, or 1,260 natural years. This period is elsewhere paralleled by the expression, "forty-two months," each month including thirty years, Revelation 11:2-3 12:6,14 13:5 .
