Visitation (פַּקוּדָה, ἐπισκοπή), in Scripture language, is sometimes taken for a visit of mercy from God (Ge 1:24; Ex 13:19; Lu 1:66, etc.), but oftener for a visit of rigor and vengeance. Day of visitation, year of visitation, or time of visitation, generally signifies the time of affliction and vengeance; or of close inspection (Ex 22:14; Isa 23:17; 1Pe 2:12, etc.).
