Dawn

Additional Links
The first appearance of light in the morning as the sun rises. Job 3:9 indicates that the stars are still visible at dawn. Dawn is used in the literal sense of the beginning of the day ( Joshua 6:15; Judges 19:26; Matthew 28:1; Acts 27:33 ). Matthew 4:16 uses the picture of the dawn in Isaiah 9:2-3 as a figure for the new age of hope and promise which Jesus brought.
