Time is measured in countless different ways, and each is socially constructed. Since the Bible is a compilation of many different books (or narratives), expanding not only long periods of time, but also large distances, and all human activity that happens within, the way that time is measured has to be different and incoherent. But it probably made really good sense at the time it was written and in the place it was written.
by 2018, and all the knowledge we've accumulated, people should be aware of this inconsistent measurement of time, and should interpret the message despite it.
