Evening to Evening - NOT According to The Bible (20+ Verses)

December 13, 2016
Appointed Times
 

1 Samuel 11:11World English Bible (WEB)

11 On the next day, Saul put the people in three companies; and they came into the middle of the camp in the morning watch, and struck the Ammonites until the heat of the day. Those who remained were scattered, so that no two of them were left together.

This is my second post in this series to prove to you that a Day is not counted from Evening to Evening like the Pharisees would like you to do. The Day is separated from the Night and the Night cannot be part of the Day. I have a detailed article on this topic that forms the basis of this post titled 3 reasons why a day is not from evening to evening in Genesis. The diagram below should help you get your head around the reckoning of the Day. The 1st diagram shows Scriptural reckoning, the two other diagram shows the wrong Pharisaical reckoning. We have no right or authority to change what Yahuah set from the beginning.

Let us not be like the serpent who questioned what Yahuah said:

Now the serpent was more subtle than any animal of the field which Yahuah God had made. He said to the woman, “Has God really said, ‘You shall not eat of any tree of the garden?’”

- Genesis 3:1

1. The parable of the laborers

“For the Kingdom of Heaven is like a man who was the master of a household, who went out early in the morning to hire laborers for his vineyard. When he had agreed with the laborers for a denarius a day, he sent them into his vineyard. He went out about the third hour, and saw others standing idle in the marketplace. He said to them, ‘You also go into the vineyard, and whatever is right I will give you.’ So they went their way. Again he went out about the sixth and the ninth hour, and did likewise. About the eleventh hour he went out, and found others standing idle. He said to them, ‘Why do you stand here all day idle?
“They said to him, ‘Because no one has hired us.’
“He said to them, ‘You also go into the vineyard, and you will receive whatever is right.’ When evening had come, the lord of the vineyard said to his manager, ‘Call the laborers and pay them their wages, beginning from the last to the first.’
“When those who were hired at about the eleventh hour came, they each received a denarius. When the first came, they supposed that they would receive more; and they likewise each received a denarius. When they received it, they murmured against the master of the household, saying, ‘These last have spent one hour, and you have made them equal to us, who have borne the burden of the day and the scorching heat!’

Matthew 20:1-12

The master went out to the marketplace in the morning to hire laborers for his vineyard. We know it's Summer because the laborers had to bear the scorching heat. The first laborers were hired in the Morning. The 2nd batch of laborers was hired at the 3rd hour. The 3rd hour in the Pharisaical reckoning of the Day (Evening to Evening) would mean 8 pm + 3 hours = 11 pm. Which is weird because the first laborers were hired in the morning. Perhaps the time goes backward? The math simply doesn't work out.

Then the master hired laborers at the 6th, 9th and 11th hour. The 6th hour in the Pharisaical reckoning of the Day (Evening to Evening) would mean 8 pm + 6 hours = 2 am, the 9th hour would be 8 pm + 9 hours = 5 am, and the 11th hour would be 8 pm + 11 hours = 7 am. But then we are told that the last batch of laborers worked only 1 hour and then ceased their work because it was pay time. This consequently means that the last batch of laborers worked from 7am to 8am. How is it then that 8am is Evening - since this is when the master paid their wages? How is it that the previous batch of laborers complained about the scorching of the Sun whereas they worked during Night (Darkness) and in the very early Morning? It simply makes no sense.

However, if we count the Day (Light) according to the Scriptures, from Morning (Sunrise) will make sense of the story. The first laborers were hired in the Morning (Sunrise) 6 am then the others were hired at the 3rd hour: 6am + 3 hours = 9 am, at the 6th hour: 6am + 6 hours =12 am, at the 9th hour: 6am + 9 hours = 3 pm, at the 11th hour: 6am + 11 hours = 6 pm.

Which makes sense because we read that in the Evening the the master was paying the hire to the laborers. And we also know that the last batch of laborers spent 1 hour working. So the last batch of laborers worked from 6pm - 7pm which is about Evening. We also can see how those starting to work earlier were scorched by the heat of the Sun!

It's clear that Yahusha reckoned the Day (Light) according to Genesis - from Morning to Evening.

2. Nehemiah and the people building the wall

So we worked in the work: and half of them held the spears from the rising of the morning until the stars appeared. Likewise at the same time said I to the people, “Let everyone with his servant lodge within Jerusalem, that in the night they may be a guard to us, and may labor in the day.”

Nehemiah 4:21-22

Note that Nehemiah and the people were working from the rising of the morning until the stars appeared. That's like saying from Morning till Evening. He then clarifies that at night there should be a guard because that's when people should sleep so that they can get started with their work the next Day (Light).

When he says "labor in the Day" he is referring back to what he said earlier. He said that they labored "from the rising of the morning until the stars appeared". That means right there that Nehemiah reckoned the Day from Morning to Evening ("from the rising of the morning until the stars appeared").

The Jewish Encyclopedia confirms this:

"Day" (Hebrew, "yom"): In the Bible, the season of light (Gen. 1:5), lasting "from dawn (lit. "the rising of the morning") to the coming forth of the stars"

- The Jewish Encyclopedia

3. Yahusha crossing over to the other side

On that day, when evening had come, he said to them, “Let’s go over to the other side.” Leaving the multitude, they took him with them, even as he was, in the boat. Other small boats were also with him. A big wind storm arose, and the waves beat into the boat, so much that the boat was already filled.

Mark 4:35-37

Please note if a Day would be from Evening to Evening Mark should have said "On the next day" instead of "On that day" because when evening starts, this is when a new Day (Light) starts according to the Pharisees.

Clearly, Mark is reckoning the Day (Light) according to the Scriptures.

4. Paul teaching in Troas

On the first day of the week, when the disciples were gathered together to break bread, Paul talked with them, intending to depart on the next day, and continued his speech until midnight. There were many lights in the upper room where we were gathered together. A certain young man named Eutychus sat in the window, weighed down with deep sleep. As Paul spoke still longer, being weighed down by his sleep, he fell down from the third floor, and was taken up dead. Paul went down, and fell upon him, and embracing him said, “Don’t be troubled, for his life is in him.”
When he had gone up, and had broken bread, and eaten, and had talked with them a long while, even until break of day, he departed. They brought the boy in alive, and were greatly comforted.

Acts 20:7-12

Note that Paul started to teach on the first Day (Light) of the week, continued his speech till Midnight when the young man fell out of the window. Then Paul continued to speak with them and at around daybreak (Sunrise) he departed.

Notice that Paul was intending to depart the next day. If the Day was from Evening to Evening Luke, the author of Acts should have written: "intending to depart the same Day" as the break of the day (Sunrise) would be part of the Day.

It seems, however, that Luke wasn't reckoning the Day (Light) like the Pharisees (from Evening to Evening). Luke was reckoning the Day according to Genesis - from Morning to Evening.

5. Yahusha at Jacob's well

Jacob’s well was there. Yahusha therefore, being tired from his journey, sat down by the well. It was about the sixth hour. A woman of Samaria came to draw water. Yahusha said to her, “Give me a drink.”

John 4:6-7

We don't particularly know the time of the Year of this story but it matters not. 6 hours after Sunset will always be Night (Darkness). Do you think that Yahusha was making this journey in the Night (Darkness) and do you think that women go out to draw water to wells in the Night (Darkness)? That would be weird.

But if we start the Day in the Morning according to Scripture the 6th hour will be during the Day (Light), perhaps noon time (6am Sunrise + 6 hours = Noon). It's very possible that Yahusha arrived at the well at Noon and very likely that women went out to draw water at this time of the day.

It's clear that John was reckoning the Day (Light) according to the Scriptures - from Morning to Evening.

6. The coming of the Set Apart Spirit

Now when the day of Feast of Weeks (Shavuot) had come, they were all with one accord in one place. Suddenly there came from the sky a sound like the rushing of a mighty wind, and it filled all the house where they were sitting. Tongues like fire appeared and were distributed to them, and one sat on each of them. They were all filled with the Se Apart Spirit, and began to speak with other languages, as the Spirit gave them the ability to speak. Now there were dwelling in Jerusalem Jews, devout men, from every nation under the sky. When this sound was heard, the multitude came together, and were bewildered, because everyone heard them speaking in his own language. They were all amazed and marveled, saying to one another, “Behold, aren’t all these who speak Galileans? How do we hear, everyone in our own native language? Parthians, Medes, Elamites, and people from Mesopotamia, Judea, Cappadocia, Pontus, Asia, Phrygia, Pamphylia, Egypt, the parts of Libya around Cyrene, visitors from Rome, both Jews and proselytes, Cretans and Arabians: we hear them speaking in our languages the mighty works of God!” They were all amazed, and were perplexed, saying to one another, “What does this mean?” Others, mocking, said, “They are filled with new wine.”
But Peter, standing up with the eleven, lifted up his voice, and spoke out to them, “You men of Judea, and all you who dwell at Jerusalem, let this be known to you, and listen to my words. For these aren’t drunken, as you suppose, seeing it is only the third hour of the day.

- Acts 2:1-15

So the disciples gathered together for the Feast of Weeks (Shavuot) and began to speak in tongues. Some people from the multitude mocked them saying they were drunk. Then Peter stood up and said they were NOT drunk because it's the 3rd hour of the day.

Clearly, Peter's message is that it's not Evening (Day) or Night (darkness) when people drink usually drink wine. Feast of Weeks (Shavuot) is a festival at around early summer. Evening around this season starts at about 7:30 pm. If we count the day from Evening (Sunset) 7:30 pm we end up with 7:30 pm + 3 hours = 10:30 pm. And 10 pm is already Night (Darkness) which is high time for drinking wine. Thus, Peter could not have reckoned the day from Evening to Evening.

But if we count the day from the Morning (Sunrise) according to Scripture at around 5:30am we end up with 5:30am + 3 hours = 8:30 am - which is daylight and clearly Peter's point. People don't usually drink during the Day (Light).

It's clear that Luke, the author of Acts, was reckoning the Day (Light) from Morning to Evening.

7. David's escape from Saul

Saul sought to pin David to the wall with the spear; but he slipped away out of Saul’s presence, and he stuck the spear into the wall. David fled, and escaped that night. Saul sent messengers to David’s house, to watch him, and to kill him in the morning. Michal, David’s wife, told him, saying, “If you don’t save your life tonighttomorrow you will be killed.”

1 Samuel 19:10-11

If Michal reckoned the Day (Light) from Evening to Evening she should have told David "Today you will be killed" since the morning would have been part of the same Pharisee Day (Light). However, it's clear that she considered Morning the start of a new Day, since she said "Tomorrow".

8. Peter's vision

Now there was a certain man in Caesarea, Cornelius by name, a centurion of what was called the Italian Regiment, a devout man, and one who feared God with all his house, who gave gifts for the needy generously to the people, and always prayed to God. At about the ninth hour of the day, he clearly saw in a vision an angel of God coming to him, and saying to him, “Cornelius!”
He, fastening his eyes on him, and being frightened, said, “What is it, Lord?”
He said to him, “Your prayers and your gifts to the needy have gone up for a memorial before God. Now send men to Joppa, and get Simon, who is also called Peter. He lodges with a tanner named Simon, whose house is by the seaside.
When the angel who spoke to him had departed, Cornelius called two of his household servants and a devout soldier of those who waited on him continually. Having explained everything to them, he sent them to Joppa. Now on the next day as they were on their journey, and got close to the city, Peter went up on the housetop to pray at about the sixth hour. He became hungry and desired to eat, but while they were preparing, he fell into a trance.

- Acts 10:1-10

Luke, the author of Acts writes that the angel visited Peter at the 9th hour of the Day. If the Day is from Evening to Evening then depending on the time of the year it would mean: 6 pm + 9 hours = 3 am. So Cornelius saw the Angel at 3 am and the next Day (which according to the Pharisees starts in the Evening) Cornelius' servants were on the journey.

So in the Evening these servants are on the journey and this is when Peter goes up to the housetop to pray. But now we're told that it was at the 6th hour. So if the Day starts in the Evening then 6th hours is perhaps 6 pm + 6 hours = Midnight. So Peter is on the rooftop waiting hungry while there are preparing his MIDNIGHT meal. I mean, come on! Give me a break. Do people have MIDNIGHT meals? People usually sleep at Midnight, not eat.

Even if we start the Evening at 8 pm (Summer) the math won't work. 8 pm + 6 hour = 2 am. In this case, Peter would be having a VERY EARLY BREAKFAST at 2 am and the soldiers would be on their journey during the Night. A very weird scenario.

But if we reckon the Day (Light) according to the Scriptures we can conclude the following: 6 am + 9 hours = 3 pm is when the Angel talks to Cornelius and 6 am + 6 hours = NOON (Lunch) is when Peter sees the vision. How likely it is that Peter was waiting for his Lunch prepared at NOON and while he was waiting hungry he sees the vision? Very likely. This vision is about food so this is very relevant to Peter at this point because he's very hungry.

9. Yahusha praying all Night long

In these days, he went out to the mountain to pray, and he continued all night in prayer to God. When it was day, he called his disciples, and from them he chose twelve, whom he also named apostles:

- Luke 6:12-13

Yahusha prayed all Night (Darkness) long and then when it was Day (Light) he called his disciples. Clearly Luke is talking about Morning (which he considers Day) here as this comes right after Night (Darkness). If Luke was reckoning the Day (Light) from Evening to Evening he would have written "The same day" or "When it was morning" but he wrote "when it was Day".

10. Peter in the prison

The same night when Herod was about to bring him out, Peter was sleeping between two soldiers, bound with two chains. Guards in front of the door kept the prison.
And behold, an angel of the Lord stood by him, and a light shone in the cell. He struck Peter on the side, and woke him up, saying, “Stand up quickly!” His chains fell off from his hands. The angel said to him, “Get dressed and put on your sandals.” He did so. He said to him, “Put on your cloak, and follow me.” And he went out and followed him. He didn’t know that what was being done by the angel was real, but thought he saw a vision. When they were past the first and the second guard, they came to the iron gate that leads into the city, which opened to them by itself. They went out, and went down one street, and immediately the angel departed from him.
When Peter had come to himself, he said, “Now I truly know that the Lord has sent out his angel and delivered me out of the hand of Herod, and from everything the Jewish people were expecting.” Thinking about that, he came to the house of Mary, the mother of John who was called Mark, where many were gathered together and were praying. When Peter knocked at the door of the gate, a maid named Rhoda came to answer. When she recognized Peter’s voice, she didn’t open the gate for joy, but ran in, and reported that Peter was standing in front of the gate.
They said to her, “You are crazy!” But she insisted that it was so. They said, “It is his angel.” But Peter continued knocking. When they had opened, they saw him, and were amazed. But he, beckoning to them with his hand to be silent, declared to them how the Lord had brought him out of the prison. He said, “Tell these things to James, and to the brothers.” Then he departed, and went to another place.
Now as soon as it was day, there was no small stir among the soldiers about what had become of Peter.

- Acts 12:6-18

Peter is in the prison at night, then the angel opens him the door, then he came to the house of Mary, and when it was Day (Light) there was a stir among the soldiers. This is a story told in a sequential order. One thing happened after another. After Night (Darkness) there comes Morning, and clearly Luke, the author of Acts called Morning, Day (Light). If Luke was reckoning the Day (Light) according to the Pharisees, from Evening to Evening, he would have written "Now as soon as it was morning", instead, he wrote "Now as soon as it was Day" because he reckoned the Day (Light) starting in the Morning.

11. The Levite and his concubine

On the fourth day, they got up early in the morning, and he rose up to depart. The young lady’s father said to his son-in-law, “Strengthen your heart with a morsel of bread, and afterward you shall go your way.” So they sat down, ate, and drank, both of them together. Then the young lady’s father said to the man, “Please be pleased to stay all night, and let your heart be merry.” The man rose up to depart; but his father-in-law urged him, and he stayed there again. He arose early in the morning on the fifth day to depart; and the young lady’s father said, “Please strengthen your heart and stay until the day declines”; and they both ate.
When the man rose up to depart, he, and his concubine, and his servant, his father-in-law, the young lady’s father, said to him, “Behold, now the day draws toward evening, please stay all night. Behold, the day is ending. Stay here, that your heart may be merry; and tomorrow go on your way early, that you may go home.” But the man wouldn’t stay that night, but he rose up and departed, and toward Jebus (also called Jerusalem). With him were a couple of saddled donkeys. His concubine also was with him.
When they were by Jebus, the day was far spent; and the servant said to his master, “Please come and let us turn aside into this city of the Jebusites, and stay in it.”
His master said to him, “We won’t turn aside into the city of a foreigner that is not of the children of Israel; but we will pass over to Gibeah.” He said to his servant, “Come and let us draw near to one of these places; and we will lodge in Gibeah, or in Ramah.” So they passed on and went their way; and the sun went down on them near Gibeah, which belongs to Benjamin.

- Judges 19:5-14

They got up early in the Morning on the fourth Day (Light), then he stayed all Night (Darkness), and then he arose early in the Morning the fifth Day (Light). Can you spot the issue here? Well, if you reckon the Day (Light) from Evening to Evening then the second time Morning is mentioned should have been still the fourth Day (Light). However, we read, this was the fifth Day (Light) which is correct according to Genesis. It's clear, that they reckoned the Day from the Morning. Also, note that Night is mentioned separately, since Night (Darkness) is not part of the Day (Light).

Then we read that the Day (Light) was drawing toward evening, the day was far spent, which means the Evening did not start a new Day (Light), it was ending the Day (Light) and still part of the Day (Light) according to Genesis.

12. Paul imprisoned in Philippi

He took them the same hour of the night, and washed their stripes, and was immediately baptized, he and all his household. He brought them up into his house, and set food before them, and rejoiced greatly, with all his household, having believed in God.
But when it was day, the magistrates sent the sergeants, saying, “Let those men go.”

- Acts 16:33-35

Paul and Silas were imprisoned, at midnight there was an earthquake, the keeper of the prison wanted to commit suicide, Paul stopped him, baptized him at Night (Darkness) and then the next Day (Light) the magistrates wanted to let Paul and Silas go. Notice that the Morning according to the Pharisee Evening to Evening reckoning should have been part of the same Day (Light). Therefore, Luke, the author of Acts, should have written "the same day", but he wrote "when it was day". From this we know for certain that Luke reckoned the Day (Light) starting in the Morning.

13. Feast after making the golden calf

When Aaron saw this, he built an altar before it; and Aaron made a proclamation, and said, “Tomorrow shall be a feast to Yahuah.”
They rose up early on the next day, and offered burnt offerings, and brought peace offerings; and the people sat down to eat and to drink, and rose up to play.

- Exodus 32:5-6

Aaron proclaimed that tomorrow is going to be a feast and then they rose up early on the next day. If Aaron was a Pharisee and reckoned the Day (Light) from Evening to Evening he should have said "They rose up early on the same day" since Morning would be part of the same Day (Light). It's clear, however, that Aaron the high priest considered Morning starting a new Day (Light) according to Genesis.

14. Receiving the Ma na

Moses said to them, “Let no one leave of it until the morning.” Notwithstanding they didn’t listen to Moses, but some of them left of it until the morning, and it bred worms, and became foul: and Moses was angry with them. They gathered it morning by morning, everyone according to his eating. When the sun grew hot, it melted. On the sixth day, they gathered twice as much bread, two omers for each one, and all the rulers of the congregation came and told Moses. He said to them, “This is that which Yahuah has spoken, ‘Tomorrow is a solemn rest, a holy Sabbath to Yahuah. Bake that which you want to bake, and boil that which you want to boil; and all that remains over lay up for yourselves to be kept until the morning.’” They laid it up until the morning, as Moses asked, and it didn’t become foul, and there were no worms in it.

Exodus 16:19-24

If the Shabbat starts on day 6 at Evening then consequently on day 6 in the morning they gathered twice as much, then God told them that tomorrow (commencing in the Evening according to the Pharisees) is Shabbat.

Problem is that in the same verse we read "all that remains over lay up for yourselves to be kept until the morning". The word "morning" is obviously referring back to the word "tomorrow". It's clear that according to Moses the Day (Light) starts in the Morning as per Genesis.

15. Moses judging the people

On the next day, Moses sat to judge the people, and the people stood around Moses from the morning to the evening.

Exodus 18:13

Notice the words "FROM" and "TO". Also, notice that it was on the next day and the day was FROM morning TO Evening. Morning starts a new day not evening. Clearly Moses was reckoning the Day (Light) from Morning to Evening according to Genesis.

16. Achan's sin

Joshua tore his clothes, and fell to the earth on his face before Yahuah’s ark until the evening, he and the elders of Israel; and they put dust on their heads. Joshua said, “Alas, Lord Yahuah, why have you brought this people over the Jordan at all, to deliver us into the hand of the Amorites, to cause us to perish? I wish that we had been content and lived beyond the Jordan! Oh, Lord, what shall I say, after Israel has turned their backs before their enemies! For the Canaanites and all the inhabitants of the land will hear of it, and will surround us, and cut off our name from the earth. What will you do for your great name?”
Yahuah said to Joshua, “Get up! Why have you fallen on your face like that? Israel has sinned. Yes, they have even transgressed my covenant which I commanded them. Yes, they have even taken some of the devoted things, and have also stolen, and also deceived. They have even put it among their own stuff. Therefore the children of Israel can’t stand before their enemies. They turn their backs before their enemies, because they have become devoted for destruction. I will not be with you any more, unless you destroy the devoted things from among you.
“Get up! Sanctify the people, and say, ‘Sanctify yourselves for tomorrow, for Yahuah, the God of Israel, says, “There is a devoted thing among you, Israel. You cannot stand before your enemies until you take away the devoted thing from among you.”
“‘In the morning therefore you shall be brought near by your tribes. It shall be that the tribe which Yahuah selects shall come near by families. The family which Yahuah selects shall come near by households. The household which Yahuah selects shall come near man by man. It shall be, that he who is taken with the devoted thing shall be burnt with fire, he and all that he has, because he has transgressed the covenant of Yahuah, and because he has done a disgraceful thing in Israel.’”
So Joshua rose up early in the morning and brought Israel near by their tribes. The tribe of Judah was selected.

- Joshua 7:6-16

Joshua is fallen to the earth on his face till the Evening, and Yahuah tells him that Tomorrow the people shall sanctify themselves. Then he clarifies, that in the Morning you shall therefore... And then Joshua gets up in the Morning.

So if you reckon the Day (Light) after the Pharisees the Evening when Joshua was at the ark should have counted a new Day (Light), right? Consequently, the following Morning should have been counted as the same Day (Light). But it hasn't been!

It is Yahuah Himself who tells us that Tomorrow is starting in the Morning. Of course, since he separated Day (Light) and Night (Darkness) at creation. Who are we to question Him?

17. Israel at Mount Sinai

Moses went down from the mountain to the people, and sanctified the people; and they washed their clothes. He said to the people, “Be ready by the third day. Don’t have sexual relations with a woman.”
On the third day, when it was morning, there were thunders and lightnings, and a thick cloud on the mountain, and the sound of an exceedingly loud trumpet; and all the people who were in the camp trembled.

- Exodus 19:14-16

Moses tells the people to be ready by the third Day (Light) and then on the third Day (Light) when it was Morning there were thunderings.

The third Day (Light) according to the Pharisees would have been started at the Evening of the second Day (Light). Yet, from this passage it's clear that Moses was reckoning the start of a new Day (Light) from the Morning according to Genesis.

18. David fighting the Amalekites

David struck them from the twilight even to the evening of the next day. Not a man of them escaped from there, except four hundred young men, who rode on camels and fled.

- 1 Samuel 30:17

If we reckoned the Day (Light) from Evening to Evening according to the Pharisees then we would need to conclude that the next evening after the twilight of today would be the same day. See the chart at the beginning of the article.

However, according to Samuel the next Evening is part of the "next day" and not part of the same Day (Light).

19. Jonah and the vine

Yahuah God prepared a vine, and made it to come up over Jonah, that it might be a shade over his head, to deliver him from his discomfort. So Jonah was exceedingly glad because of the vine. But God prepared a worm at dawn the next day, and it chewed on the vine, so that it withered.

- Jonah 4:6-7

According to the Evening to Evening Pharisee Day (Light) reckoning the next morning should have been part of the same Day (Light), yet Jonah tells us that Dawn is starting the next Day (Light).

Shall we believe Jonah or the Pharisees?

20. When not to eat the peace offering

The flesh of the sacrifice of his peace offerings for thanksgiving shall be eaten on the day of his offering. He shall not leave any of it until the morning.

- Leviticus 7:15

If the Day (Light) is reckoned from the Evening to Evening why can't we not leave any of the peace offering until morning? It would be the same Day (Light) so why this specification?

It turns out, that this specification makes no sense unless the Morning starts a new Day (Light). If we start the Day (Light) from the Morning it all makes sense. Then the specification basically means we shall not leave any of until the start of the next Day (Light). Hallelu Yah!

21. Re-instituting the daily burnt offerings

When the seventh month had come, and the children of Israel were in the cities, the people gathered themselves together as one man to Jerusalem. Then Jeshua the son of Jozadak stood up with his brothers the priests, and Zerubbabel the son of Shealtiel and his brothers, and built the altar of the God of Israel, to offer burnt offerings on it, as it is written in the law of Moses the man of God. In spite of their fear because of the peoples of the surrounding lands, they set the altar on its base; and they offered burnt offerings on it to Yahuah, even burnt offerings morning and evening. They kept the feast of tents, as it is written, and offered the daily burnt offerings by number, according to the ordinance, as the duty of every day required; and afterward the continual burnt offering, the offerings of the new months, of all the set feasts of Yahuah that were consecrated, and of everyone who willingly offered a freewill offering to Yahuah. From the first day of the seventh month, they began to offer burnt offerings to Yahuah; but the foundation of Yahuah’s temple was not yet laid.

- Ezra 3:1-6

We can read above that the daily offerings were offered morning and evening. When Ezra writes "offered daily burnt offerings" and he clearly refers back to "burnt offerings morning and evening".

22. Plot against Paul

The following night, the Lord stood by him, and said, “Cheer up, Paul, for as you have testified about me at Jerusalem, so you must testify also at Rome.”
When it was day, some of the Jews banded together, and bound themselves under a curse, saying that they would neither eat nor drink until they had killed Paul.

- Acts 23:11-12

According to Luke, at Night (Darkness) the Lord stood by Paul and when it was Day (Light) the Jews plotted against Paul. According to the Pharisees, the Day (Light is from Evening to Evening, according to which Night (Darkness) is part of Day (Light). However, we see that Morning is considered starting the Day according to Luke, the author of Acts. "When it was day" clearly refers to Morning, which starts a new Day (Light).

23. The daily offerings

You shall tell them, ‘This is the offering made by fire which you shall offer to Yahuah: male lambs a year old without defect, two day by day, for a continual burnt offering. 4 You shall offer the one lamb in the morning, and you shall offer the other lamb at evening;

- Numbers 28:3-4

When do we have to offer the daily offerings? One lamb in the morning and one lamb in the evening. Clearly Day (Light) is from morning to evening.

24. Samuel

On the next day, Saul put the people in three companies; and they came into the middle of the camp in the morning watch, and struck the Ammonites until the heat of the day. Those who remained were scattered, so that no two of them were left together.

- 1 Samuel 11:11
