* on the first day.

month, in the second year of their departure from Egypt, (Ex
40:17,) and this happened on the first day of the second
month, in the same year, it is evident that the transactions
related in the preceding book must all have taken place in
the space of one month, and during the time the Israelites
were encamped at mount Sinai.
