||Noun Feminine |
- the day, used of the natural day, or the interval between sunrise and sunset, as distinguished from and contrasted with the night
- in the daytime
- metaph., "the day" is regarded as the time for abstaining from indulgence, vice, crime, because acts of the sort are perpetrated at night and in darkness
- of the civil day, or the space of twenty four hours (thus including the night)
- Eastern usage of this term differs from our western usage. Any part of a day is counted as a whole day, hence the expression "three days and three nights" does not mean literally three whole days, but at least one whole day plus part of two other days.
- of the last day of this present age, the day Christ will return from heaven, raise the dead, hold the final judgment, and perfect his kingdom
