For some reason my emailer (MS Outlook) is deleting all of Will’s posts.  My own attempts at fixing what appears to be the junk mail options are ineffective.

Which sentences was he questioning?  The two NASM texts?

Did Okrand actually write that? Can anyone else make more sense of it than I can?

Yes, and yes.

{bI'reS} is being used in the manner of a time stamp in the two sentences which confuse you. Translate it as "at first" or "to begin with" or even "in the beginning".
