Morrish Bible Dictionary
The word yesterday is used for the previous day, Exodus 5:14; John 4:52; Acts 7:28; and for past time indefinitely, as "a thousand years in thy sight are but as yesterday;" and as when the Lord Jesus is said to be "the same yesterday, to-day, and for ever." Psalm 90:4; Hebrews 13:8 . It is used also as if of 'no duration,' as "we are but of yesterday." Job 8:9 . Yesternight is the same as would now be called 'last night.' Genesis 19:34; Genesis 31:29,42 .
