Moreover, Josiah kept a passover unto the Lord in
&c.] Where only it was to be kept:
and they killed the passover on the fourteenth day of the
the month Nisan, as the Targum, which was the exact time of killing the passover lamb, according to the law of Moses, ( Exodus 12:6 ) , in the Vulgate Latin version of the Apocrypha in:
``And Josias held the feast of the passover in Jerusalem unto his Lord, and offered the passover the fourteenth day of the first month;'' (1 Esdras 1:1)
it is called the fourteenth moon of the first month; a phrase often used in ecclesiastical writers, when speaking of the time of the passover; and so we now call one of the days of the week "dies lunae", Monday.
