[seventeenth and eighteenth day of the moon]

The seventeenth Sodom and Gomorrah perished. It is a bad day to start a task or make anything. Medicines will be of no benefit to the patient. Dreams will be true within three days.  The child born on this day will be happy in everything.

The eighteenth day Isaac was born. It is good to travel and conduct business. The sick will be in danger of death. Dreams will be certain. The child born on this day will do great works and acquire great property.
