    Genesis 1:3-5 Then God said, "Let there be light," and there was light. And God saw that it was good. Then he separated the light from the darkness. God called the light "day" and the darkness "night." Together these made up one day.

    Yes day and night are mentioned in the Bible. Yes there was darkness at night and light during the day. But there is also the concept of the god written about in the bible referring to himself as being 'the light" and of the devil being'the way of darkness' so if you are interested read it. Just be aware there is more to reading something and understanding than taking it literally.

    Yes, in the very first chapter of Genesis.

    Darkness at night is mentioned, too, during a battle the Israelites fought, when Moses held..... something (it's late).... up and the sun didn't set until the battle was over. When the Israelites were escaping Egypt, God provided a pillar of smoke when it was light outside, and a pillar of fire so they could be guided during the darkness of night. The events leading up to the crucifixion of Christ happened at night, and Christ calls the officials out on it.

    Genesis 1:3-5

    3God said, "I command light to shine!" And light started shining. 4God looked at the light and saw that it was good. He separated light from darkness 5and named the light "Day" and the darkness "Night." Evening came and then morning--that was the first day.

    Depends on which portion you're speaking of. The Hebrew words are different, but we only have one word for light, so that's the only way we can translate it. They had a couple of words. They had one word that had the connotation of "diffused" light, unable to make out the source. Another word conveyed more the thought of light with a definite source.

    And, again, it's a very poetic, yet concrete language in it's theory and form. For example, the Hebrews didn't say: "Seashore" That's our word for it. They were more poetic. They said: "Lip of the Sea". They didn't say, "in a second", they said: "In the swallowing down of spit" to refer to a brief time period.

    So "light" is used in a ton of different ways in the Bible. But again, in our very simplistic language, we unfortunately have one word for it.
