mid´dā ( היּום מהצית , maḥăcı̄th ha - yōm , צהרים , cohŏrayim ; ἡμέρα μέση , hēméra mésē ): The Hebrew maḥăcı̄th ha - yōm ( Nehemiah 8:3 ) and the Greek hēmeras mesēs (Acts 26:13 ) are strictly the middle of the day, but the Hebrew cohŏrayim is a dual form from צהר , cōhar , meaning "light," hence, light or brightness, i.e. the brightest part of the day (1 Kings 18:29 ). See NOON .
