Now from the sixth hour [i.e., noon] there was darkness over all the land until the ninth hour [i.e., 3 PM].Amos 8:9-10:
“And on that day,” declares the Lord God,
“I will make the sun go down at noon
and darken the earth in broad daylight.
I will turn your feasts into mourning
and all your songs into lamentation; . . .
I will make it like the mourning for an only son
and the end of it like a bitter day.
