Day: The Jews reckoned the day from sunset to sunset (Leviticus 23:32) It was originally divided into three parts (Psalms 55:17) "The heat of the day" (1 Samuel 11:11; Nehemiah 7:3) was at our nine o'clock, and "the cool of the day" just before sunset (Genesis 3:8) Before the Captivity the Jews divided the night into three watches,

1. from sunset to midnight (Lamentations 2:19)

2. from midnight till the cock-crowing (Judges 7:19)

3. from the cock-crowing till sunrise (Exodus 14:24) In the New Testament the division of the Greeks and Romans into four watches was adopted (Mark 13:35)


The division of the day by hours is first mentioned in (Daniel 3:6,15; 4:19) (Daniel 5:5) This mode of reckoning was borrowed from the Chaldeans. The reckoning of twelve hours was from sunrise to sunset, and accordingly the hours were of variable length (John 11:9) The word "day" sometimes signifies an indefinite time (Genesis 2:4; Isaiah 22:5; Hebrews 3:8) etc. In (Job 3:1) it denotes a birthday, and in (Isaiah 2:12; Acts 17:31) (2 Timothy 1:18) the great day of final judgment.
