|Bible Question: Is it true that the original Hebrew word used for "day" in Genesis chapter one the same Hebrew word for "era"?|
Bible Answer: Word study ... Yowm ...................
God's day to you, mikerosa,
Yowm is from an unused root meaning to be hot
It can mean:
day, time, year
day (as opposed to night) day (24 hour period)
as defined by evening and morning in Genesis 1 as a division of time 1b a working day, a day's journey days, lifetime (pl.) time, period (general) year temporal references
That is why there is more than one view how how each creation day was.
