The Hebrews reckoned two evenings in each day; as in the phrase, "between the two evenings," Exodus 12:6 Numbers 9:3 28:4 . In this interval the Passover was to be killed, and the daily evening sacrifice offered, Exodus 29:39-41 , Hebrew. According to the Carites, this time between the evenings is the interval from sunset to complete darkness, that is, the evening is the interval from sunset to complete darkness, that is, the evening twilight. Compare Deuteronomy 16:6 . According to the Pharisees and the rabbins, the first evening began when the sun inclined to descend more rapidly, that is, at the ninth hour; while the second or real evening commenced at sunset. See DAY .
