comment How long was Shimon in prison?
@msh210 I am not re3ady to ask a larger question -- I just need the source for this answer or more clarification about exactly what that referenced source said.

and does that source cite any discussion over whether it was appropriate to leave Shimon there for that whole time?

@Scimonster They all hinge on the matter of time as per the title. After that is resolved I can know if the others are worth pursuing.

comment So who is this “angel of the Lord” that call himself “the God of bethel”?
@IsaacMoses only for the second, follow up question. Yours is the answer I would go with for the first part but I have no source other than you. Not that you aren't an authoritative source... ;)

@JimThio R. David Kimchi explains that the text means "I am the God who revealed himself to you in Beit El."

I think @IsaacMoses is correct as the flow of verses indicates (v. 9) that God separated, and then there is a message that God says "I separated" as relayed by the vision of an angel in a dream. Note, the text does not use the word "elohim".

comment Can you use a stolen menorah?
@DoubleAA good point but is there a distinction between the "loose candles" cited in the Q you link to and the lashon of "attached" in the daily halacha site I linked to? If I melt the wax and attach the candle to a table is it "loose"?

comment Why is it called “Eden”?
could it be related to the other definition of Eiden, "pleasant" or "enjoyment"? [the entry above it in the even-shoshan]
