Yesterday (prop. אֶמֶשׁ, e'mesh; but frequently תּמוֹל, aforetime; χθές) is sometimes used in Heb. to denote all time past, however distant; as today denotes time present, but of a larger extent than the very day on which one speaks. "If the ox was wont to push with his horn in time past" (Ex 21:29; Heb. yesterday). "And it came to pass, when all that knew him before time (Heb. yesterday); whereas thou camest but yesterday" (2Sa 15:20). "Jesus Christ, the same yesterday, today, and forever" (Heb 13:8). His doctrine, like his person, admits of no change; his truths are invariable. With him there is neither yesterday nor tomorrow, but one continued today. Job says (Job 8:9), "We are but of yesterday, and know nothing; because our days upon earth are a shadow."
