Evening


The period following sunset with which the Jewish day began (Gen. 1:5; Mark 13:35). The Hebrews reckoned two evenings of "each day, as appears from Ex. 16:12: 30:8; 12:6 (marg.); Lev." "23:5 (marg. R.V., "between the two evenings"). The "first" "evening" was that period when the sun was verging towards" "setting, and the "second evening" the moment of actual sunset." "The word "evenings" in Jer. 5:6 should be "deserts" (marg." R.V.).
