2:1 seventh month . . . twenty-first. October 17, 520 b.c. According to Lev. 23:33–43, this was the last day of the Feast of Tabernacles, during which God’s people were to rejoice in God’s provision for them in the wilderness and the blessings of the harvest. There was not much to rejoice in, however, since their harvest was meager (1:11).
