Why is there day and night?
Clearly, when you see the Sun shining in the sky, it is DAY, and when you don’t it is NIGHT.
HOW MANY NIGHTS IN ONE DAY?
HOW WE CONSIDERED 1:00am to 5:00am in the morning NIGHT OR DAY?
So THREE NIGHTS IS EQUIVALENT OF:
FRIDAY 1:00-5:00 AM = 1st NIGHT
SATURDAY 1:00-5:00AM = 2nd NIGHT
SUNDAY 1:00-5:00AM = 3rd NIGHT
King James Version (KJV)
1 Now the word of the Lord came unto Jonah the son of Amittai, saying,
2 Arise, go to Nineveh, that great city, and cry against it; for their wickedness is come up before me.
3 But Jonah rose up to flee unto Tarshish from the presence of the Lord, and went down to Joppa; and he found a ship going to Tarshish: so he paid the fare thereof, and went down into it, to go with them unto Tarshish from the presence of the Lord.
4 But the Lord sent out a great wind into the sea, and there was a mighty tempest in the sea, so that the ship was like to be broken.
5 Then the mariners were afraid, and cried every man unto his god, and cast forth the wares that were in the ship into the sea, to lighten it of them. But Jonah was gone down into the sides of the ship; and he lay, and was fast asleep.
