But the man would not stay that night, but rose up and departed and arrived at a place opposite Jebus (which is Jerusalem) and with him were a pair of loaded donkeys, and his concubine was with him. Bible

“opposite Jebus.” The ancient road from Bethlehem to Jerusalem and north passed on the west side of Jerusalem. The walk from Bethlehem to Jerusalem was about seven miles, or likely under two hours, so by now it would have been late evening.
