John 1:39 tenth hour

What is meant by the tenth hour in John 1:39? How is time determined in the various scriptures of the Bible?

Hi @LydiaP the 10th hour would be 4 pm. How they counted was 6 am was the start point of the day. When the writers refer to the 6th hour it is noon etc.

If you hover over the number 10 at the end of the verse it will usually answer these kinds of question in the English Standard Version.
I hope this helps, I used to wonder this myself.
