They Numbered the Days

Yesterday for the third hour lesson the elder's quorum president had us read Abraham 4. There were many things which struck me, but I'd like to mention one in particular.

Has anyone else noticed verse 13? And it came to pass that they numbered the days; from the evening until the morning they called night; and it came to pass, from the morning until the evening they called day; and it was the third time.

Abraham is taught about the creation, and that God numbered, or counted and organized the days.

This bears a striking resemblence to the premise of the Sefer Yetzirah, the earliest extant Jewish esoteric book, attributed to Abraham, which details the process of creation according to various numeric combinations.

Any thoughts?

Brings to mind D&C 122:9

Therefore, hold on thy way, and the priesthood shall remain with thee; for their bounds are set, they cannot pass. Thy days are known, and thy years shall not be numbered less; therefore, fear not what man can do, for God shall be with you forever and ever.
