Holman Bible Dictionary
First part of the day by modern reckoning. Morning can refer to the time before dawn (Mark 1:35
; compare Genesis 44:3
), to dawn (Genesis 19:15
; Genesis 29:25
; Judges 16:2
), or to some time after sunrise. Morning is frequently paired with evening (Genesis 1:5
) to indicate a complete day. The coming of morning serves as a figure for joy (Psalm 30:5
) or vindication (Psalm 49:14
) which comes quickly.
