- This may not be legitimate because the wording may not be intended to be that technical, but it is something I have thought about before when observing Sukkot.0 Комментарии 0 Поделились
- Since "between the evenings" is part of the preceding day, and since "evening" (erev, singular) is equated with it on some level,
I don't believe we can use Yom Kippur and Festival of Unleavened Bread timing verses to prove that the day is from evening to evening.
Lv 23:27- "...in the tenth to the month..."
Lv 23:32- "...in ninth to the month in evening, from evening until evening you shall observe your ceasing"
This is one of the most common prooftexts of evening to evening. I've seen it in rabbinic literature and non-rabbinic literature. If Yom Kippur is on the tenth (v.27) and that includes the ninth at evening until evening (v.32), therefore by the transitive property, one might conclude that the evening preceding is part of the tenth day.
One issue I see with this, even apart from the former point re: between the evenings/evening, is that it says, "...ninth...in evening..." If it is normally a part of the tenth, for what reason does it not say the "tenth" at evening?7 Комментарии 0 Поделились
- (as the sun enters/entered/comes/came/sets)
The 1 Kings example makes me wonder a bit, unless kbo hashemesh is a broader period of time (e.g., twilight rather than just sunset) or unless erev includes time before sunset itself.
Dt 16:6 "...you shall slaughter the passover in evening (erev) as the sun enters..." (SP and Ex 12 say between the evenings instead of evening)
Dt 24:13 "you shall restore to him the pledge as the sun enters, and he shall lie down in his garment..."
Dt 23:12 "and it shall be as the evening is coming on (or, "it shall be to the face of evening") he shall wash in water, and as the sun enters, he shall enter to midst of the camp"
Js 8:29 "...he hung on the tree until time of the evening, and as the sun entered...they took down his carcass..."
1 Ki 22:35-36 "and the battle ascended in that day...and he died in the evening...and the proclamation passed in the camp as the sun entered..."
