Test Number One

              The Seder Hadoros (year 1948) writes:

The night Avraham Avinu was born, Nimrod's elders
& magicians came to celebrate in Terach's house.
As they left the house they looked up at the sky and
saw one large star swallowing up four other stars.

The magicians told this to the king (Nimrod) and
recommended that the child should be killed.

The king went to Terach and asked him for his son.
After a long discussion, Terach asked the king to hold
off for three days. After the three days, Terach gave the
king a baby boy born to one of his slaves.

Terach took his son Avram and hid him for ten* years
underground so they would not suspect him of
what he actually did.

This is what the Payton was referring to when he wrote
"ונחבא בארץ י"ג שנים שלמים ולא ראה שמש וירח"

Siluk (last long Piyut before Kedusha) second day Rosh Hashana Shachris

The (בית ישראל (עברי טייטש on the Machzor has a wrong
Pshat  claiming Avram was locked up for 13 years
because he broke his father's idols.

*The Girsa in our Piyut is 13 years
