Now the hand of Yahweh had been on me in the evening, before the fugitive arrived; and he had opened my mouth by the time he came to me in the morning. So my mouth was opened and I was no longer mute. Bible

“in the evening.” The Bible does not say if this was before or after sunset. If before sunset, then God’s hand had been on Ezekiel on the fourth day of the tenth month, but if after sunset, then God’s hand was on Ezekiel and he could speak on the fifth day of the tenth month, the same day the fugitive arrived. The consistent dating in Ezekiel is evidence for the conclusion that it was after sunset.
