Period of darkness between sunset and dawn. Night occurs often in the simple temporal sense. Night forms part of God's ordering of time (Genesis 1:5,Genesis 1:14; Genesis 8:22). Night is frequently a time of encounter with God, either through dreams or visions (Genesis 20:3; Genesis 31:24; Genesis 46:2; 1 Kings 3:5; Job 33:15; Daniel 2:19; Daniel 7:2,Daniel 7:7,Daniel 7:13; Acts 16:9; Acts 18:9), appearances (Genesis 26:24; Numbers 22:20; 1 Chronicles 17:3; 2 Chronicles 1:7; 2 Chronicles 7:12; Acts 23:11; Acts 27:23), or by speech (Judges 6:25; Judges 7:9; 1 Samuel 15:16). Night is sometimes associated with danger (Psalms 91:5). The absence of night in the heavenly Jerusalem (Revelation 21:25; Revelation 22:5) points to the security of believers and the constant presence of God there. Night can also be associated with God's acts of deliverance (Deuteronomy 16:1; 2 Kings 19:35; Job 34:25).
