Morrish Bible Dictionary
Under the word MONTHS it has been stated that the Jews reckoned the months to consist alternately of twenty-nine and thirty days, being therefore in twelve months eleven and a quarter days short of the year. To remedy this an additional month was added about every three years. In the various data given for the last half of the last of Daniel's Seventy Weeks, it will be seen that all the months are reckoned as having thirty days; thus 'a time, times, and a half' in Daniel 12:7 and Revelation 12:14 point out three and a half years: this period is again called forty two months in Revelation 11:2; Revelation 13:5; and again twelve hundred and sixty days in Revelation 11:3; Revelation 12:6 . The prophetic year may therefore be called three hundred and sixty days. See MONTHS and SEASONS.
