Excerpt from the book “A Discourse Upon The Sabbath (Year 1628):

“In the next place I am to show what I mean by Day in the 4th commandment:  By Day I understand the time of light only, namely all that space of time and light from day peep or day break in the morning, until day be quite off the sky at night:  that by Day is meant the light, see Genesis 1:5.  God (who knows best to name things) called the Light, Day, see 1Thes. 5:5,8…and that the day begins even while it is but a little light… and this is from first approach of light upon our horizon before sunrise unto the last departure of light, after sunset, from off our horizon…that is the day from day break, to last shutting in of the day, so long as is any light in the sky…”  (pgs. 85-86)

“Now this is the day which God commanded in the 4th commandment and which I urge here, namely, the time of light…”  (pg. 158)
