Now from the sixth hour darkness came over all the land until the ninth hour.a Bible
a[45]
The sixth hour is about noon; the ninth hour is about 3 PM.

“sixth hour…ninth hour.” The sixth hour is our noon, and the ninth hour is about our 3 PM. Both the Jews and Romans divided the day into 12 hours, starting at daylight, roughly 6 AM. [For the hours of the day and the watches of the night, see commentary on Mark 6:48].
