• "The date adopted in the margin of the authorised English version of the Script ores fixes the creation of the world at 4004 years before the birth of Jesus Christ. The chronology of that version was settled bv Dr. Williams Lloyd. Bishop of St. Asaph; it is a modification of Archbishop Usher's chronology, w ho follows the computation of the Hebrew Bible, and fixes the creation of the world at 4000 years bcfSre the birth of Christ. The chronology followed here is that of Bishop Uojd, which is that most generally received.

t This year was intercalated one day.
