Shalom Chaverim. I have been reading the Sefer HaYashar (Book of Jasher) - a great read, by the way. However I have a couple of questions.
First, there appears to be a conflict between this book and the Torah regarding how long the Children of Israel were in Egypt before the Exodus. The Book of Jasher says 210 years, whereas the Torah says 430 years, as YHWH prophesied to Avraham. Which is correct? The second question is - who or what is Silonot? She appears in the book during the narration of the plagues of Egypt as coming out of the river having long arms...I don't like reading about something without knowing the truth of it. Thanks for any help in these. Shabbat Shalom from Australia.
