it is the pitching time of the day, Jer 6:4.
That is, it was near the time in which travellers ordinarily
pitched their tents, to take up their lodging for the night.
In the latter part of the afternoon, eastern travellers begin
to look out for a place for this purpose. So Dr. Shaw
observes, "Our constant practice was to rise at break of day,
set forward with the sun, and travel to the middle of the
afternoon; at which time we began to look out for encampments
of Arabs; who, to prevent such parties as ours from living at
free charges upon them, take care to pitch in woods, valleys,
or places the least conspicuous."
