IAN YOU SAID IN RELATION TO THE START OF THE DAY
This is of course why we are told that God did his creating "and evening
was and morning was, day Xth": wyhy `rb wyhy bqr ywm X. We are told this
each day of the six days of creation. Note the "and"s: the first implies
that God worked before the evening. God did his creating, then evening came
and then morning -- people don't work at night.
Are you saying that
"and evening was and morning was, day Xth"
"and the evening of day X was and the morning of day X+1 was"
After all this seems to be the implication if the day started in the
Nice to know God only worked during the day - which begs the question if
only darkness existed how did he ever start creating?
