  • That is because the Babylonian calendar (probably based on much older observations) is based on the lunar quarter cycles, roughly four seven-day periods until the next "new" moon.

      The Babylonian Calender was in used 700 years before Christ. The current calender is the Gregorian Calender. The reason we have 7 days a week is because the Bible fix the week at 7 days. Six days of work and the last day on the sabbath. https://www.bibleinfo.com/en/questions/what-are-7-days-of-creation
