Noon a rendering in Ge 43:16, and elsewhere, of צָהַרִיַם, tsohora'yim, doublelight, i.e. either the dividing point between the growing and waning lights of morning and evening (Furst, s.v.), or the moment when light is double, and so brightest (Gesenius). By a natural metaphor, the word is sometimes employed to designate prosperity and happiness (Am 8:9; Zep 2:4). SEE DAY.
