HH: The word MW(D ("time") clearly can refer to the seasons of nature.
In Jer 8:7 it refers to the migration season for birds. In Ps 104:19 it
refers to nature's seasons:
Psa. 104:18 The high mountains belong to the wild goats; the crags are a
refuge for the coneys.
Psa. 104:19 The moon marks off the seasons, and the sun knows when to go
Psa. 104:20 You bring darkness, it becomes night, and all the beasts of
the forest prowl.
