tradition of Rome from which our current calendar is
reckoned is that the day is from midnight to
to Rabbinic Jewish tradition, we are told that a day
is from evening to evening with the Sabbath being
observed from sundown/dark Friday evening to
sundown/dark Satyrday evening. If I did
not have reason to suspect that we have been misled
by both the Jews and Catholics, this study would not
have been written.
Friend, the Adversary has counterfeited
everything else set in place at Creation, so should
you be surprised that someone would come along with
evidence challenging the established “even to even”
said that each day begins at night? The truth
of the matter lies in Scripture…
first serious flaw is that the word “even” or
“evening” means the whole dark period
of night or that morning means the whole light
period of day.
This is assumed by the phrase, “and the
evening and the morning were the first day” used
several times in Genesis 1. However
the Hebrew word erev means dusk
(evening). Layil, the Hebrew word for
night and erev are not synonymous.
Likewise, the lit part of day is yom, the
Hebrew word for day. On the other hand, the
Hebrew word Boker
is translated as morning and it means only the
earliest segment of a day, or “morning”, not the
whole day (yom).
Believers have not been completely honest with the
Hebrew words and we have been taught to continue the
dishonesty. When the Hebrew is honestly
examined, an “evening to evening” day is suddenly
“lost” in translation.
there is a Hebrew phrase that means sundown. It is shemesh
(down or set).
The phrase shemesh bow is used to mean three
differing points of time: before sunset, as the sun
is setting and after sunset.
the sun has set
the sun is setting
sun has set
the Hebrew word erev
(evening) means sunset (just before, during or just
after) why didn’t Moses use the word erev in the
three verses above?
Or why didn’t Moses use shemesh bow in
all the places “evening” is used?
reason for this is that the term “even” or
“evening” (Hebrew erev) is
as fixed a moment in time as we would like it to be;
a point where something begins and/or ends. In some
places in Scripture, evening refers to noontime, in
other places evening refers to about 3:00 p.m.
In other places it refers to about the time the sun
hits the horizon, in other places the sun is just
below the horizon. In other places evening is
the twilight time phase from sunset until
darkness. Here are some examples of each of
are passages that reveal that evening
refers to an unspecified period of time between noon
and sunset. Notice
is part of the present day: Exodus 12:18,
28:16 and 9:3, Deuteronomy
Kings 16:15, I Chronicles
9:4, et al.
are the passages that indicate that evening means a
period of time shortly before the sun sets and
darkness sets in: Numbers 9:15,
23:10-11, Judges 19:16,
Psalm 104:23, Jeremiah 6:4,
verses say that a person is “unclean until the
11:24 is the first. This use
of the phrase is generally understood to mean
following verses use erev to mean sunset. Please
note that “even” is not part of the next
nearly all of Lev. 15,
much of Numbers
Samuel 1:12, II Chronicles
18:34, et al.
the period of twilight between sunset and dark, the
is also used… Proverbs 7:9,
two verses could have been combined with the verses
is a perfect example of the Hebrew word, erev
(evening) meaning that the sun has set. Please
read in context.
If it had been still daylight out, don’t you
think Jacob would have known he was “consummating”
with the wrong woman?
Here are other passages that indicate that
evening means the sun has set: Genesis 49:27,
7:6-13, 8:29, 10:26, Zephaniah 2:7,
et al, and this is still considered “today”, not
tomorrow, because the day begins at sunrise in
the two evenings.
word “evening” appears in Exodus 12:6
which literally reads “between the [two]

refers to a period of time before sunset.
indicates a period of time shortly before the sun
sets, when it is still light out and the shadows are
long, a perfect time to light the lamps. Again
notice that evening is still part of the current
point is this--if the Sabbath
begins at even then 9 neighbors
living in a straight line on the same side of the
street can begin the Sabbath at noon, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5,
6, 7, and 8 p.m. respectively and all show Scripture
to prove their position. Do you
think YHVH established confusion such as this?
How easy do you think it will be for a naysayer to
contend that Sabbath keepers are all full of manure
when they discover this? I actually know a
VERY sincere feast keeping couple who keeps the
from noon to
noon because this is what they think “evening”
means, and offer PROOF in Scripture to back it
up. Their proof texts do show in some cases
that “evening” means noon in the passages they
selectively pull from Scripture. Of course
they conveniently ignore the dozens of other places
that put even
at sunset, dark or “between the
Noon is the FIRST of all the points of time that
COULD be called even, that
is the time they begin their days, including their
Sabbaths. Logical? Sure…
the adversary laughs all the way to the bank. This is very
confusing to say the least and YHVH is not the
Author of confusion.
Remember earlier I said, “The truth of the
matter lies in Scripture”? Well,
let’s permit Scripture have a voice. And if I
may be so bold, please listen and heed what it says…
was the first thing created during creation week? Light? Did you
forget the creation event in Genesis 1:1? This was a
time consuming event, so why was it not called a day
after heaven and earth was created? The
segment of time in Genesis 1:1 is not an
ordinary day; it was the first day of the first
month of the first year on planet earth so it would
have been the new moon “day”. The sun does not
need to rise or set to demark this day for while the
sun tells us that a new day has begun, it is the
moon that tells us what kind of day it is.
Here the moon was not illuminated (naturally)
because the sun had not been lit yet, so Genesis
1:1 is a new moon day, the dark phase of the
moon. Case in point: All months
in Scripture begin with a new moon day. If the second
month after creation began with a new moon, how do
you think the first month on earth began?
did the first day of the creation WEEK begin in Genesis
1:3? Without any luminaries in the
heavens, there are no time keepers for planet
earth. Until YHVH said, Let there be
light, time as we understand it (days, weeks,
months and years) did not exist. So when YHVH
said “Let there be light”, did the light tarry for
some 12 hours before it came on or did it come on
immediately? I believe it came on as soon as
He commanded it to come forth. Thus, days
began (as we understand them) at that moment.
This was the first “week day” on planet earth and it
began with LIGHT. Interestingly enough the
next day began when the first Day/Night cycle
ended—the next morning. Case in
point: If the first day/night segment of time
ended with morning (which is exactly what it
says in Genesis
1:5), when did day two begin? Answer: At
morning, the moment the first day/night segment of
the evening and the morning were the ___ day” is
listed several times during creation week and we
have been taught that the day began in the evening,
but if that was so, then the day/night segment would
end at evening.
However Scripture says it ends with morning. In fact
the first six day/night cycles end the following
Moses had meant that the day/night segment ended
with the daylight (at even), he would have written
Yom, rather than “morning.” The first
day began with light, later there was an evening,
and later still there was another morning, and they
call this “day one.” Actually, this is how the
literal Hebrew reads, and there was
evening, and there was morning, Day one.
What came before the first “and”? “And” is a
connective word, connecting sequences of events,
people, places and things, time included.
The command to Let there be
light came first, and [meaning later]
there was evening, and [meaning still later]
there was morning, Day one. So Creation
week supports a day that begins at dawn. The
very first day/night segment began with the light of
the morning and ended at the subsequent morning,
which is exactly how Genesis 1:3-5
This is the first place in Scripture that uses the
word “Sabbath”. This is the last day of the
first six days that manna fell. YHVH states
is the Sabbath. Israel was to prepare
today (the sixth day or preparation day) and lay up
for themselves all that remained, to be kept until
morning. So they laid up until
morning (verse 24) and it did not stink as it had
all the other mornings they had tried to collect
enough for two days. Verse 25 says, eat that
TODAY, for TODAY is the Sabbath. It does not
say eat that this evening,
evening is the Sabbath. It does
not say that “tonight” is the Sabbath of rest unto
Neither the Sabbath nor tomorrow began that
evening, it began the next morning. This is
Torah friend, so is the Creation account in Genesis
Passover event in Exodus 12
is also troublesome for the “evening to evening”
proponents. If the Sabbath begins at evening,
then the Death Angel went over Egypt on the Sabbath
(Abib 15, the day after Passover). The act of
judgment and retribution is work, not a Sabbath
activity. The battle/siege of Jericho was a
consecutive 7 day affair. Israel did
not march around Jericho on the Sabbath (they
started on a new moon--day one of the month--then
marched around for the next 6 work days—days 2-7)
because war/judgment is not a Sabbath
activity. YHVH does not make a law then break
it Himself. The
Father did not send the Death Angel over Egypt
during the Sabbath hours, because the Sabbath did
not begin until the morning AFTER the Death Angel
had passed over.
This also is Torah.
remains of the Passover lamb also prove true.
Exodus 12:6-10 tells us that Israel was to
kill the lamb on Abib 14, at evening (between the
evenings actually), which means sometime in the
afternoon. They were to put the blood on the
doorposts that day, and they were to eat it THAT
night (the night the Death Angel would pass
over). That night was connected to Abib 14. They were
not to leave any of the lamb remaining until the
following morning (the next day). Did THAT
night belong to the next day (Abib 15) or THAT day
(Abib 14). Clearly the night after the evening
belonged to Abib 14 because it is called THAT night,
not the next night or tomorrow night. This is
another witness in Torah indicating that the
day begins in the morning, not in the evening.
Leviticus 7:15 presents the same
argument from Torah.
look at the language itself. The light (sun)
was to divide the day from the night. The
light is called ‘day’, the darkness is called
‘night’. Is it wise to say that the day begins
at darkness? Job 17:10-12 calls those
who change the night into day “unwise”. So
also the warning in Isaiah 5:20-21.
11:32 also proves
that the night does not belong to the next
day. This too is in the Torah. It says
that the people stood up all THAT day, and all THAT
night, and all the NEXT day. Please look at
this with your Strong’s Concordance, your Young’s
Concordance, or any other reference material of your
is one of the strongest verses against a 24 hour
period beginning at evening. The day
cannot begin at evening or it would have been
written that they stood all THAT day, all the NEXT
night and all the NEXT day. Exodus 10:13 and
I Samuel 19:24 and 28:20 present
the same argument.
The Torah and the prophets speak, and they
all agree, naturally.
been a precedent? At
Creation, the Father established a pattern: work
first, then rest.
If the day begins at evening we have no
option that day but to rest first, then work. Do you
think the Father wants us to take a rest for the day
before we have worked that day? Please
the daylight ends at evening or dark, but the
next day does not begin until the next
daylight. The evening belongs to the day, the
12 hour period that preceded it, not the following
day. Numbers 28:16 and Exodus
12:6 make this clear by stating that the lamb
was killed at even and that even was part of Abib
14, not Abib 15. This is also stated in Exodus
12:18, Leviticus 23:5, Numbers
9:3, and Joshua 5:10. Remember,
the sun divides day from night. If there
is still sunlight visible at evening, it
belongs to the day, not the night. Night is
the absence of sunlight.
I'm trying to show you that this issue is VERY much
a part of Scripture even though there is not a verse
that comes right out in English and says, “a day
begins at dawn.”
1 says that the day begins in the morning over
and over in Hebrew, but we have been taught to read
it as it has been translated, rather than as it was
think about this for a moment, neither is there a
verse to be found that says that the weekly
Sabbath is from “even to even”. When a day
begins is another issue that the Adversary
counterfeited (midnight to midnight) then (in my
semi-educated opinion) dual counterfeited (evening
to evening). This “dawn day” issue is not my
strong suite, nor is it my focus, but it is a part
of the Creation Calendar. A simple
study of the facts and acknowledgment of the
evidence will prove that EVERYTHING about time has
been counterfeited; including the beginning of the
23:32 is very
easy to explain. In context,
this verse is only talking about the Day
of Atonement. It says Sabbath (meaning the
10th day of the seventh month), not the weekly
Sabbaths. And I do observe the fast of
Day of Atonement from even to even, just as
it says that this appointed time was to begin on the
9th at even, and end on the 10th
at even. If
the 10th day of the seventh month is Day
of Atonement, why didn’t YHVH just say keep the 10th
as a fast? The
point is, the affliction of the soul begins on the 9th
day at even (this does not mean the beginning of the
day) and ends on the 10th day at even. This time
of affliction is spread over two days.
Bread presents a similar issue. Unleavened
bread was eaten on the 14th day of the
first month at evening, (along with the rest of the
Passover meal, Exodus 12:8)
and was to be eaten until the 21st at
is parts of 8 days, yet Exodus 12:15
says to eat it for seven days. And so it
day part of the 14th is over when eaten
on the 14th, so unleavened bread is only eaten on
“DAYS” 15 through 21.
Day and night are two separate terms. Again, the
time segment is about when to begin practicing a
certain diet, it says NOTHING about the beginning of
the day, which is neither mentioned nor implied in
the context of this passage.
13:19 is a verse
I have used to defend “evening to evening” but now,
after honestly examining the verse, I find that
it does not defend even to even
at all. It is not saying that the sabbath
began at evening it says that right before it became
dark the gates were shut and the Sabbath had still
not yet begun. If the Sabbath begins at
evening (which is the transition between day and
night) then the Sabbath would begin before darkness
fell, which is called night. Nehemiah says
that as darkness fell, it was still not the Sabbath. Nehemiah
would not speak contrary to the Torah, would he?
6:15 agree that the days begin at dawn. Job felt
the day began at dawn, Job 3:9, and 7:4.
So did Solomon, Song of Solomon 2:17 and 4:6. Solomon
was a very wise man.
far we have only looked at time in one direction:
forward. Let’s examine it backward now.
Please read Genesis 19:33-35. Lot's
oldest daughter tells her sister that she had lain
with her father Lot “yesternight” and it was the
younger sister’s turn to lay with her father
tonight. In the opinion of the author of
Genesis and the translators, yesternight belongs to
yesterday, not today. Again, the day cannot
begin at even, or the oldest would have said
“tonight” I have lain with father and it is your
turn to lay with father “tomorrow” night.
Scripture, “tomorrow” never begins at even.
Example, Exodus 32:5-6. Tomorrow--in
Scripture--always begins at the break of day, early
in the morning. This thought is preserved
elsewhere... in fact, everywhere else in Scripture…
Exodus 18:13, Exodus 16:22, and I
Samuel 19:11, Esther 2:14.
the Sabbath begins at evening, then what will we do
with all the texts above? There are
over 70 passages in Scripture, many of them found in
Torah, that reveal or give supporting evidence that
the day begins at dawn.
New Testament is not silent on the subject
when Paul spoke until midnight, and was to depart
on the morrow?
I would just like to add a significant
fact that he spoke until midnight and departed on
the “morrow” is solidified by the term “daybreak”
used in verse 11.
It was not tomorrow until the break of day. Is this
28:1 says that
the first day did not begin until it began to
“dawn”. The first day drew on; it did not
begin 12 hours ago when it first got dark. John
20:19 says, the same day, at evening,
indicating that the evening is the latter part of
the preceding day, not the beginning of the next
day. Mark 4:35 agrees.
to me at least, Luke 23:54 is the nail
in the coffin as far as the NT texts go. The
translators rendered it, “As the Sabbath drew on”
but a Strong's concordance will tell you that the
phrase “drew on” in the Greek
means “to grow light.” If the Sabbath was
drawing on as it was beginning to grow light, when
did the Sabbath begin? At dawn
or 12 hours earlier when it got dark? Remember
what Job said about the unwise who call the night
day (and conversely, call the day night)?

Joseph appears before Pilate until the Sabbath might

one is forced to recognize dark as the beginning of
the day in this model just to get 30-45 minutes (the

most salient point is, if even means
several points of time anywhere from noon to dark,
then it cannot begin the day. If it does not
begin the day, what does? The fact
is it is impossible to prove an “evening to
evening” day as the “Jews” practice the Sabbath
when a complete and unbiased study of word usage
in Scripture is honestly engaged. The
“Jews” are not Israelites, they are descendants of

QUESTIONS ON DAY AND NIGHT
YisraEl has formulated these 21 questions to prove
beyond a shadow of a doubt when the day begins and
ends and that “evening” is part of the day. He
believes that if any serious student of the
Scriptures attempts to honestly answer these
questions that he will come to the same undeniable
conclusion that day and night are totally the
opposite of one another, and that they are two
distinctly different times altogether. Any

– Yes, because when a day ends, the night begins. Psalm 104:20
11:32, it says that the Children of Israel
gathered quail all that day, and
all that night,
and all the next day. How many
and how many nights
did they gather quails?
(A) - Two
and one night,
(but if a day
begins at night
then they would have gathered quails 2 days and
7:15, it says, “the flesh of the sacrifice
of His peace offerings for thanksgiving shall be
eaten the same day that
it is offered; he shall not leave any of it until
the morning.” Does
the word “morning”,
in this verse indicate the morning
that is connected to the previous evening,
or the morning
that is connected to a new day?
(A) - New day. Numbers
28:3-4, this verse also proves the evening
is part of the previous day, not
the beginning of a new day.
According to Exodus
16:22-25, when does the Sabbath rest unto
YHVH begin, in the night, evening
or in the morning?
Morning or morrow, as all new days begin.
If a night is considered a day, then what
did YAH mean when He said that He caused it to
rain forty days and forty nights?
(A) - A
night is not considered a day. Psalm 104:20.
If a day
starts when it becomes dark,
then why is darkness
always pertained to as night,
and never pertained to as day? (Psalm
104:20); the only notable exception is when
it is speaking about the “Day of YAH’s Wrath”
being a dark
(A) - A day does
not start when it becomes dark,
because YAH totally separated the light
from the darkness.
1:5, does the word day mean
or does it mean light
(A) - The
refers to light
33:19-21, YHVH speaks about the evil that He
would bring upon the house of David and kingdom of
Israel, if they broke His covenants that there
should not be day or night
in their season (Psalm 22:2). What is
the season of the day, and
what is the season of the night?
season of the day is
when the sun
is reigns, and the season of the night is
when the moon
17:8-12, the upright men, the innocent men,
and the righteous men and everyone who has clean
hands have stirred up themselves against the
is it that the people who changed night
are referred to as hypocrites?
Because the hypocrites are saying that YHVH, Our
Creator, told a lie when He said He separated the

day always started at night, then how could anyone
change the night into day?
(A) - It
is not possible, but by trying to do so, the
wicked could possibly bring about the total
destruction of the House of Israel. Jeremiah
According to the Words of The Most High,
what is the difference between a day and

is what we find… Day
equals night. Jeremiah
31:35 and Psalm
8:22 reads, “While the earth remains,
seedtime and harvest, and cold and heat, and
summer and winter, and day and
shall not cease.”
The Most High gives us four different times
Are these times and conditions the same, or
are they totally the opposite of one another?
Totally the opposite of one another.
According to Leviticus
8:35, Aaron and his sons were to remain at
the door of the Tabernacle, day and
seven days. How many
did they remain?
Six nights. Count

Outside of the way that many of you might
interpret Genesis 1st chapter, is there
anywhere else in the Scriptures that says that evening
are a day?
(A) - No! Because
it is not, neither is Genesis the 1st
chapter saying that.
If the celebration of our Sabbath days and
our new moons (Isaiah 66:23)
begins in the evening
when the sun is going down, why would Our Creator
state that all nations shall praise His Name and
worship Him from the “rising of the sun until the
going down of the same (sun)”? From the
rising of the sun unto the going down of the
same YHVH’s name is
to be praised.
(A) - If
the Sabbath started in the evening,
as many of our people believe, then this verse
would make no sense whatsoever.
have you done so far? You knew
every one of the answers didn’t you? So, when
does a day begin?
Oh, one more question. Have you
ever heard of a Sabbath night mentioned in
Scripture or were we only told to remember the
sabbath day, to keep it holy.
Six days shalt
thou labour, and do all thy work:
But the seventh
the sabbath of YHVH thy Aluhiym: in it
thou shalt not do any work, thou, nor thy son,
nor thy daughter, thy manservant, nor thy
maidservant, nor thy cattle, nor thy stranger
within thy gates:
six days YHVH made heaven and earth, the sea,
and all that in them is,
and rested the seventh day: wherefore YHVH
blessed the sabbath day, and hallowed it. Exodus
note that the passage says to remember the Sabbath
does NOT say to remember the Sabbath night.
And on the seventh
day Aluhiym ended his work which he had made;
and he rested on the seventh day from all his
work which he had made.
blessed the seventh day, and sanctified it:
because that in it he had rested from all his
work which Aluhiym created and made. Genesis
note that the Creation account informs us that the
rested on and blessed the seventh daylight period
of time. In
Hebrew this is called a yom. He does
not say it begins on the sixth night!
do you say there are 24 hours in a day? The
English version of day, the 24 hour period from
midnight to midnight (which is the adopted Roman
version) is NOT the Scriptural version. According
to Scripture, the light part is called day, the
dark part is called night. If the
words of the carpenter from Nazareth are to be
accounted for anything, he asked, “Are there
not 12 hours in a day?” (John
do as you are commanded. Worship
YHVH from the rising of the sun, till the going
down of the same, and remember the seventh DAY to
keep it set-apart.

If you still think that night is day,
please reread Genesis 1:3-5, then go back to the

attention this time.

been taught and believed so many lies.” Phil Wilson
