I. 3); so the Latintempus est, Cicero, Tusc. 1, 41, 99; ad Attic 10, 8). Owing to the context ὥρα sometimes denotes the fatal hour, the hour of death: Matthew 26:45; Mark 14:35, 41; John 12:27; John 16:4 (here L Tr WH read ὥρα αὐτῶν i. e. the time when these predictions are fulfilled); ; ὥρα τίνος, 'one's hour', i. e. the time when one must undergo the destiny appointed him by God: so of Christ, John 7:30; John 8:20, cf. John 16:21. (On the omission of the word see ἐξαυτῆς (ἀφ' ἧς? cf., p. 58b top), Winers Grammar, § 64, 5, under the word; Buttmann, 82 (71); on the omission of the article with it (e. g. 1 John 2:18), see Winers Grammar, § 19, under the word).
