Why doesn't your friend post here instead of you?
It was actually 6 days, 7th day he rested, but I understand the point you are meaning.
But it is not a bad translation, but more of a bad interpitiation. For some Creationists it is hard to belive the account of Genisis, so they come up
with the explination of "one day equals a thousand years to god" as more plausible.
Notably there are 2 verses that uses the terms
First Moses Prayer to God
For a thousand years in your sight
are like a day that has just gone by,
or like a watch in the night.
The other verses in that psalm support it as meaning how unaging God is, or how time is percived by him. Yet man life is so short. All symbology,
2 Peter 3:8-9
But do not forget this one thing, dear friends: With the Lord a day is like a thousand years, and a thousand years are like a day. The Lord is not
slow in keeping his promise, as some understand slowness. He is patient with you, not wanting anyone to perish, but everyone to come to
THis one obviosuly has to do with Gods patiance, and how he can wait.
Both are using symbology, and it would be really incorrect to think of those verses as actaul fact
