ATS Bible DictionaryEvening
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 De 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.
Easton's Bible DictionaryThe 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. R.V., "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. R.V.).
Webster's Revised Unabridged Dictionary1. (p. pr. & vb. n.) of Even.
2. (n.) The latter part and close of the day, and the beginning of darkness or night; properly, the decline of the day, or of the sum.
