A creation of God which marks the duration of life and which is measured by changes in the created order. The flow of time is directed by God who appoints particular “times” within his unfolding purposes. Because human life is brief, time should be used properly, making the most of every opportunity.
Divisions of timeGe 1:8 A day was marked by the regular cycle of evening and morning; Nu 28:14 Months were determined by the regular phases of the moon; 1Ki 4:7 The year consisted of twelve lunar months; Jn 11:9 An hour was one twelfth of the period of daylight.
