In the bible it says that a thousand years are as a day and a day as a thousand years. If you take this literally it would be easy to see im wrong but i believe it is being used as a metaphor for explaining Gods infinence and imensity in that his view of time is not human but that he looks down on time as if all of time is on a 2d timescale. So there is no real way to determine if he means 120 2nd millenium years or if he was using a totally different set of meaning.
