Treasury of Scripture

In the twilight, in the evening, in the black and dark night:

the twilight

Genesis 39:11
And it came to pass about this time, that Joseph went into the house to do his business; and there was none of the men of the house there within.

Job 24:13-15
They are of those that rebel against the light; they know not the ways thereof, nor abide in the paths thereof…

Romans 13:12-14
The night is far spent, the day is at hand: let us therefore cast off the works of darkness, and let us put on the armour of light…

evening of the day

Exodus 12:6
And ye shall keep it up until the fourteenth day of the same month: and the whole assembly of the congregation of Israel shall kill it in the evening.









(9) In the twilight . . .--He has no excuse of sudden temptation to offer; from twilight till dark night he had trifled with danger, and now at last his "calamity comes" (Proverbs 6:15).

Verse 9. - In the twilight, in the evening of the day. So termed to distinguish it from the morning twilight. The moralist sees the youth pacing to and fro in the early evening hours, and still watching and waiting when the darkness was deepest (comp. Job 24:15). In the black and dark night; literally, in the pupil of the eye of night and in darkness. We have the same expression in Proverbs 20:20 (where see note) to denote midnight. Its appropriateness is derived from the fact that the pupil of the eye is the dark centre in the iris. Septuagint: the youth "speaking in the darkness of evening, when there is the stillness of night and gloom."
