Hello!

You state:

"It is interesting to note that, while in Genesis, referring to the days of 
Creation, the order is evening - morning, the order of the words when 
referring to sacrifices is morning - evening."

This is not always true concerning the temple service. Here are some texts:

NIV Exodus 27:21 In the Tent of Meeting, outside the curtain that is in 
front of the Testimony, Aaron and his sons are to keep the lamps burning 
before the LORD from evening till morning. This is to be a lasting ordinance 
among the Israelites for the generations to come.

NIV Leviticus 24:3 Outside the curtain of the Testimony in the Tent of 
Meeting, Aaron is to tend the lamps before the LORD from evening till 
morning, continually. This is to be a lasting ordinance for the generations 
to come.

NIV Numbers 9:15 On the day the tabernacle, the Tent of the Testimony, was 
set up, the cloud covered it. From evening till morning the cloud above the 
tabernacle looked like fire.

NIV Numbers 9:21 Sometimes the cloud stayed only from evening till morning, 
and when it lifted in the morning, they set out. Whether by day or by night, 
whenever the cloud lifted, they set out.

NIV Deuteronomy 16:4 Let no yeast be found in your possession in all your 
land for seven days. Do not let any of the meat you sacrifice on the evening 
of the first day remain until morning.


Also, note that the Septuagint and the Theodotion are SUPPLYING the word 
"day," which cannot be found in the Hebrew original.

Regards,

Eduard

It is interesting to note that, while in Genesis, referring to the days of 
Creation, the order is evening - morning, the order of the words when 
referring to sacrifices is morning - evening. It might also be mentioned 
that both Greek translations (the Septuagint and the Theodotion) included 
"days" in their translation of Daniel 8:14.
