Easton's Bible Dictionary - Evening
The period following sunset with which the Jewish day began (Genesis 1:5 ; Mark 13:35 ). The Hebrews reckoned two evenings of each day, as appears from Exodus 16:12 : 30:8 ; 12:6 (marg.); Leviticus 23:5 (marg. RSV, "between the two evenings"). The "first evening" was that period when the sun was verging towards setting, and the "second evening" the moment of actual sunset. The word "evenings" in Jeremiah 5:6 should be "deserts" (marg. RSV).
Morrish Bible Dictionary - Evening
The period from sunset till night. This was naturally the closing of the day, for God called the light 'day:' cf. John 11:9 . "The evening was, and the morning was, one day:" that is, there was not day continuously, but through the alternation of night and morning day succeeded day. Genesis 1:5 . The common way of reckoning the day among the Jews was from evening until the next evening. A difficulty has arisen as to the phrase 'between the two evenings. ' The paschal lamb was to be killed between the two evenings, and some have thought that this allowed the passover lamb to be killed any time between the evening of the 14th and the evening of the 15th Abib. This however cannot be the meaning because none of it was to be left till the morning; and because the same phrase is used respecting the daily sacrifice, and also as to lighting the lamps. Exodus 12:6 , margin ; Exodus 29:39 ; Exodus 30:8 . The Jewish writers are not agreed in their definition of the expression: some suppose it lies between the beginning and ending of sunset; others, from sunset to full darkness. Josephus says that the time of killing the passover was from the ninth hour till the eleventh, which would be about from three o'clock to five; but this would seem to make the 'evening' come at the end of the Jewish day, and not at the beginning.
Vine's Expository Dictionary of NT Words - Even, Evening, Eventide
A — 1: ἑσπέρα (Strong's #2073 — Noun Feminine — hespera — hes-per'-ah ) properly, the feminine of the adjective hesperos, "of, or at, evening, western" (Lat., vesper, Eng., "vespers"), is used as a noun in Luke 24:29 ; Acts 4:3 , "eventide;" Acts 28:23 . Some mss. have the word in Acts 20:15 , "in the evening (we touched)," instead of hetera, "next (day)."
A — 2: ὄψιος (Strong's #3798 — Adjective — opsia — op'-see-os ) the feminine of the adjective opsios, "late," used as a noun, denoting "evening," with hora, "understood" (see No. 1), is found seven times in Matthew, five in Mark, two in John, and in these places only in the NT (some mss. have it in Mark 11:11 , see B). The word really signifies the "late evening," the latter of the two "evenings" as reckoned by the Jews, the first from 3 p.m. to sunset, the latter after sunset; this is the usual meaning. It is used, however, of both, e.g., Mark 1:32 (cp. opsimos, "latter," said of rain, James 5:7 ).
B — 1: ὀψέ (Strong's #3796 — verb — opse — op-seh' ) "long after, late, late in the day, at evening" (in contrast to proi, "early," e.g., Matthew 20:1 ), is used practically as a noun in Mark 11:11 , lit., "the hour being at eventide;" Mark 11:19 ; 13:35 ; in Matthew 28:1 it is rendered "late on," RV, for AV, "in the end of." Here, however, the meaning seems to be "after," a sense in which the word was used by late Greek writers. See LATE. In the Sept., Genesis 24:11 ; Exodus 30:8 ; Jeremiah 2:23 ; Isaiah 5:11 .
Note: In Luke 12:38 some mss. have the adjective hesperinos, "of the evening" (see A, No. 1), lit., "in the evening watch."

Wilson's Dictionary of Bible Types - Evening
Ecclesiastes 11:6 (b) The evening time in the life is the time when the shadows fall, the day's work is ended, sorrows and weakness have come, and hope has faded. We should be as busy serving GOD in the later years as we are in the early years of life. Sometimes the dark times precede the bright times. We read that the evening and the morning were the first day. The darkness preceded the light. (gee also Exodus 16:12; Numbers 9:21). We read in Ezekiel 24:18 "in the evening, my wife died, and in the morning I did as I was commanded." We should not permit sorrow and difficulty to hinder our service. It may be taken also as a picture of the fact that our time on earth is the evening time, followed by the morning in glory, a morning without clouds.
King James Dictionary - Evening
E'VENING, n. See Eve, Even. The latter part and close of the day, and the beginning of darkness or night properly the decline or fall of the day, or of the sun.
The evening and the morning were the first day. Genesis 1
The precise time when evening begins, or when it ends, is not ascertained by usage. The word often includes a part at least of the afternoon, and indeed the whole afternoon as in the phrase, "The morning and evening service of the sabbath." In strictness, evening commences at the setting of the sun, and continues during twilight, and night commences with total darkness. But in customary language, the evening extends to bed-time, whatever that time may be. Hence we say, to spend an evening with a friend an evening visit.
1. The decline or latter part of life. We say, the evening of life, or of one's days. 2. The decline of any thing as the evening of glory. E'VENING, a. Being at the close of day as the evening sacrifice.
Hastings' Dictionary of the New Testament - Evening
EVENING (ἡ ὄψια [1], ἐσπέρα).—The Babylonians divided the day into equal parts by sun-watches. The ‘sixty system’ of minutes and seconds was in vogue among them. Among Syrian peoples also, it is likely, the same system prevailed. No trace of this is found among the Israelites, however, in the pre-exilic period. Another marked difference between the Babylonians and the Israelites is noteworthy. With the Israelites the day began at sunset, with the Babylonians at sunrise. It is at least certain that the reckoning from eve to eve became the exclusive method in Israel with the triumph of the Law. A kindred system prevailed among Arabs, Athenians, and Gauls (Pliny, HN ii. 79). It was customary, too, in ancient Israel to distinguish between the ‘first evening’ and the ‘second evening.’ It is not certain just where they drew the line (Edersheim). The phrase ‘between the two evenings’ (bên hâ‘arbayîm), Exodus 16:12; Exodus 29:39, as a designation of the time of the daily evening offerings, clearly meant some period in the late afternoon. The ‘first evening,’ it is generally thought, began about 3 p.m. and extended to sunset; the second began at sunset and continued into the night.
In Matthew 14:15; Matthew 14:23 we have the word ‘evening’ used in both senses. ‘When it was evening’ (Matthew 14:15) clearly refers to the first evening (cf. Luke 9:12 ‘and the day began to decline,’ Bible Union Ver.). For when the disciples suggested that Jesus send the multitude away, that they might go into the villages and buy themselves food, Jesus said they need not depart; and the feeding of the five thousand and the sending away of the multitude followed before ‘he went up into the mountain apart to pray.’ Then a second evening is spoken of in the words: ‘And when the evening was come, he was there alone’ (Matthew 14:23). In the latter case, Jesus, after seeing His disciples off (John 6:15), evidently sought the mountain solitude, as He did on other occasions, to spend much of the night in prayer (Matthew 14:25). This second evening, then, was evidently verging on the night.

Webster's Dictionary - Yester-Evening
(n.) The evening of yesterday; the evening last past.
Vine's Expository Dictionary of OT Words - Evening
‛Ereb (עֶרֶב, 6153), “evening, night.” The noun ‛ereb appears about 130 times and in all periods. This word represents the time of the day immediately preceding and following the setting of the sun. During this period, the dove returned to Noah’s ark (Gen. 8:11). Since it was cool, women went to the wells for water in the “evening” (Gen. 24:11). It was at “evening” that David walked around on top of his roof to refresh himself and cool off, and observed Bathsheba taking a bath (2 Sam. 11:2). In its first biblical appearance, ‛ereb marks the “opening of a day”: “And the evening and the morning were the first day” (Gen. 1:5). The phrase “between the evenings” means the period between sunset and darkness, “twilight” (Exod. 12:6; KJV, “in the evening”).
Second, in a late poetical use, the word can mean “night”: “When I lie down, I say, When shall I arise, and the night be gone? And I am full of tossings to and fro unto the dawning of the day” (Job 7:4).
People's Dictionary of the Bible - Evening
Evening, Psalms 55:17, Even-tide, Genesis 24:63. The Hebrews reckoned two evenings, one commencing at sunset and embracing the period of twilight, and the other commencing at dark. Some suppose that the first evening commenced as early as 3 o'clock in the afternoon, and the second at sunset. It was in the interval between the two evenings, at whichever of these periods it occurred, that the passover was to be killed and the daily sacrifice offered. See marginal reading of Exodus 12:6; Numbers 9:3; Numbers 28:4. "Even-tide" is the same with "evening-time."
American Tract Society Bible Dictionary - Evening
The Hebrews reckoned two evenings in each day; as in the phrase, "between the two evenings," Exodus 12:6 Numbers 9:3 28:4 . In this interval the Passover was to be killed, and the daily evening sacrifice offered, Exodus 29:39-41 , Hebrew. According to the Carites, this time between the evenings is the interval from sunset to complete darkness, that is, the evening is the interval from sunset to complete darkness, that is, the evening twilight. Compare Deuteronomy 16:6 . According to the Pharisees and the rabbins, the first evening began when the sun inclined to descend more rapidly, that is, at the ninth hour; while the second or real evening commenced at sunset. See DAY .

While I am upon this subject of the Jewish hours, I cannot forbear calling the reader's attention to one circumstance, which I think, now in the present day of the church, still equally interesting as it was of old always regarded, I mean the time of the Evening sacrifice. If the reader will turn to the first account of any appointed sacrifice, even the lamb of the Passover, (Exodus 12:5) he will find, that the whole assembly of the people were to kill this lamb of the first year without blemish in the Evening, or, as the margin of the Bible hath it, between the two Evenings, that was what we should call three o'clock in the afternoon; and to this precise time all the sacrifices of the Evening corresponded. Hence, we are told, (1 Kings 18:29) they prophesied till the Evening sacrifice. Ezra saith, "I sat astonied until the Evening sacrifice, and at the Evening sacrifice I arose up from my heaviness. " (Ezra 9:4-5) Hence David also prays, "Let my prayer be set forth before thee as incense, and the lifting up of my hands as the Evening sacrifice," (Psalms 141:2) And Daniel tells the church, that the man Gabriel touched him about "the time of the Evening oblation. Who was it but God the Holy Ghost, that caused the Evening sacrifice, from the first moment of appointed sacrifices in the church to the glorious finishing of all sacrifices in the death of the Lord Jesus, thus minutely to correspond? And what a sacred hour that was all along considered in the divine mind, when not the sacrifice only, but the very hour of offering it was so scruptulously regarded!
