Jeffrey Niehaus has an interesting argument in this article:
“In the Wind of the Storm: Another Look at Genesis III 8.” _Vetus
Testamentum_. 44, 2 (1994): 263-267.
He argues for a second use of _yom_ with an appeal to Akkadian evidence.
Meredith Kline has another take, defending "Spirit of the Day” (i.e.,
of judgment), with an appeal to Isaiah 28:6 (_Images of the Spirit_.
Wipf & Stock Publishers, 1999). He also discusses the translation of
the phrase in his book _Kingdom Prologue_, which can be downloaded
