These are the rules for my version of the Enoch calendar. It is based solely on Enoch and the Torah.

  • A day is defined as a definitive period of darkness-to-light, beginning and ending from one sunset to the next.
  • The calendar consists of 364 days, divided into 12 months.
  • Each month contains 30 days.
  • Every 3rd month (3rd, 6th, 9th, and 12th) an additional 31st day.
  • The calendar must begin after the day of the Vernal Equinox.
  • Anytime the year ends prior to the Vernal Equinox, an additional week will be intercalated to keep "on track" with the Vernal Equinox. This will be roughly every 4 years.
  • The calendar begins on the first "First Day of the Week" after the Vernal Equinox, as Yahweh began counting in Genesis 1 on the "First Day". This keeps the weekly Sabbath and all of the Appointed Times on the same "date" throughout the entire year.
So following the rules of my calendar, the First Day of the First Month started on March 21st. Right now it is Friday, March 26th on the Gregorian calendar, so it is the Sixth Day of the First Month on my Enoch calendar. As soon as the sun sets it will be the first Sabbath of the new year. Yay!

 Enoch's calendar is becoming even more clear to me now. By deductive reasoning and by other witnesses that I've discussed this matter with. Another piece of exciting news that I found out regarding Enoch's calendar is that it is broken up into a 360 degree circle. The four extra days in Enoch's calendar represent the days when the Sun stays in the same decan/degree at least one extra day. These extra days occur at the solstices and equinoxes. The new moon occaisionally falls on these dates but the majority of the time doesn't. Enoch says that the moon follows it's own peculiar pattern. The possibility exists that the moon at some time in the past may have fell accurately and consistently on these days. However at our present day and age we know without question that it does not.

Grammar problems arise with substituting New Moon in place of Month
Qumran Fragment 4QcommGen A Column II Verse 1
Reading right to left:
יום עשר ובשבעה נוח לחיי שנה מאות ושש באחת
day ten in the seven Noah life year hundredth sixth In the
השני לחודש
two month
The above is translated as “In the 600th year of Noah's life in the seventeen day of the second month.”
Note:
a) per hebrew dictionary Chodesh חֹדֶשׁ is month not new moon
b) per hebrew dictionary Chid-desh חִדֵּשׁ is to renew
c) per hebrew dictionary Cha-dash חָדָשׁ is new or unused
d) per hebrew dictionary Chid-dooshחִדּוּשׁ is a new moon or new idea
e) per hebrew dictionary Chood-deshחֻדַּשׁ renew or to recommense
f) per hebrew dictionary Cha-deshai חָדְשִׁי monthly (adjective)
g) Meed-dai Chodesh Bay-Chad-Shoמִדֵּי חֹדֶשׁ בְּחָדְשׁוֹ each and every month
h) per hebrew dictionary Ha-Chodesh הַחֹ֧דֶשׁ the month
i) per hebrew dictionary Yarecha יָרֵחַ moon
j) per hebrew dictionary Yarechon יַרְחוֹן monthly (noun)
k) Genesis 7:11a בַּחֹ֙דֶשׁ This word usually appears with another qualifier word to help determine which month of the year is applicable such as: first month, second month, etc.
l) Genesis 7:11b לַחֹ֑דֶשׁ This word-usually appears with another qualifier word to help determine which day of the month is applicable such as: first day, second day, etc.
In Genesis 8:13 the Hebrew word: לַחֹ֔דֶשׁ appears. However if it qualifies as a word to represent the “New Moon” without any additional grammar help? Then why does a redundant qualifier word such as:אֶחָ֣ד (meaning: first) preceed it. Other redundant qualifiers are found in Ex 40:2, Ex 40:17,
Lev 23:24, Num 1:1, Num 1:18,
Referring to line g above if Chodesh were used for each and every new moon instead of each and every month then you would be limiting yourself to one day for each new moon instead of a full 30(+) days for each new month
 
For proper Hebrew grammar the New Things” shown below require at least two Hebrew words for proper Hebrew grammar and tranliteration:
New Day, New Year, New Age, New Covenant, New King. New Offering, New House, New gods,
New Rope, New Cart, New Sword, New Cloak, and many others.
With this in mind; Why would the New Moon be the only exception to this rule by requiring only one word Chodesh to represent its full intended meaning?
Which transliteration of Genesis 29:14b is correct?
1 Surely thou art my bone and my flesh and he abode with him a space of a new moon (1 day)
2 Surely thou art my bone and my flesh and he abode with him a space of a month (30 or 31 days)
This same problem occurs in Ex 19:1, Ex 23:15, Ex 34:18, Num 3:15, Num 3:22, Num 3:28,
Num 3:34, Num 3:39, Num 3:40, Num 3:43, Num 9:22, Num 11:20, Num 11:21, Num 18:16,
Num 26:62, Num 28:14.
Other witnesses to the problem of mistranslating month as new moon are shown below:
Notes:
First Witness: A new moon will not divide evenly into a 364 day year, however 3 solar months of 91 days will divide evenly into a 364 day year.
Second Witness: The greater light to rule the day is the Sun, the lesser light to rule the night is the stars.
Analogy: If your boss put you in charge of hiring two security guards to watch over his business. The first one was hired to work the day time shift from 6am to 6pm and the other security guard was hired to work the night time shift from 6pm to 6am how happy would your boss be if he came to find out that the night shift security guard left his night shift post to work along side the day time security guard. In actuality the Moon doesn't rule the night because it wasn't assigned to rule the night because it would be unfaithful in its rulership over the night. The stars always appear at night and the moon doesn't. The book of Jubilees sternly warns against using the moon as a time piece.
Third Witness: The Septuagint says the Greater light begins the day, The lesser light begins the night. The only faithful light that begins the night is the stars.
Fourth Witness: Both Chronicles and Qumran documents show 24 priestly rotations throughout the span of a 12 month cycle with with no exceptions representing a 13 month cycle.
FifthWitness: In all the Torah, Tanach, and Brit Hadesha no 13th month of Adar Bet is ever mentioned.
 
Let's study the verse listed below:
David said to Jonathan, tomorrow is the new moon, and I am to sit with the king at the meal.
Now let's reconstruct the verse on how it should should be literally translated...
hnh ntnwhy-la dwd rmayw
(upon us is) (Jonathan) (unto) (David) (Said)
bca bcy yknaw rjm cdh
(down) (to sit) (and I'm) (tomorrow) (the month)
lwkal klmh mu
(to eat) (the king) (with)

The original Enoch-Antediluvian calendar operated on a perfect 360 day year with 12 perfect 30 day months (See Gen. 8:3-18). The Book of I Enoch tells us of a year comprising a 364 day count (I Enoch 82:6), which implies that the calendar portion in the Book of Enoch is likely corrupt and was penned much later, as one can not sync an unstable skewed 364 day year with a reoccurring and stable 360 day Preflood year.

The Postdiluvian years that we have today (2013 C.E.) (either lunar, solar, or whatever else) cannot currently fix back-to-back continual 360 day years, which is ultimately due to the stellar bodies being knocked off of their original circuits since the Great Flood and/or some time thereafter [See: Velikovsky, Worlds in Collision]. (However, there are modern ways of explaining the presence of a current 364 day year, as distinguished from a tropical 365.25 day year; See: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Calendar_reform.)

There are other portions of I Enoch that suggest that it was written Post-flood; in fact, long after the Great Flood, up to some time around 250 BCE; and scholars (R.H. Charles, R. Lawrence) are, for the most part, unanimous upon this as the original date of its authorship. Yet we know this date is definitely not during the Antediluvian era when Enoch lived, so therefore the calendar proposed in I Enoch is NOT an original Preflood calendar (360 Prefl. y. vs. 364 Postfl. y.), and was added (and figured) by a later scribe, and hence in all likelihood, corrupt from the original Preflood calendar. Thus, the Preflood calendar (Gen. 1:14; 8:3-18) was different than the current Postflood calendars of today, so one should not use the Book of I Enoch to try and forcefully superimpose a Preflood calendar (let alone a corrupt "Preflood" calendar) onto a Postdiluvian world.

The traditional Hebrew calendar continues to use the Lunar Months as required by the Torah:

10 Also in the day of your gladness, and in your appointed seasons, and in your new
moons, you shall blow with the trumpets over your burnt-offerings, and over the sacrifices of your peace-offerings. And they shall be to you for a memorial before your Elohim: I am YHWH your Elohim.
(Num. 10:10)

And in your new moons, you shall present a burnt-offering unto YHWH: two young
bullocks, and one ram, seven he lambs of the first year without blemish.
(Num. 28:11)



The word for "Month" in Hebrew is CHODESH and the word for "New Moon" is ROSH CHODESH (literally, the head/beginning of the moon/month)

And lest anyone should argue that ROSH CHODESH refers to a new month, but not necissarily to a New Moon:

6 And even the shining moon wanes according to its time.
Though it is for ruling the seasons and an everlasting sign.
7 By it are the seasons and the times of the statute:
And shining, it vanishes in its circuit.
8 The new moon (Rosh Chodesh), according to its name renews itself;
How wonderful is it when it changes!
The beacon of the host wanes on high,
Leaving the firmament aglow from its shining.
(Sira 43:6-8)

All I can say is that there are some really goofy ideas presented here along with a few good replies. All you Hebrew "experts" are simply amazing!
