a
day: ‘Ημέρᾳ, day (instead of the common reading ὤρᾳ, "hour"), has excellent authority. Besides the external evidence, consider the chain of verses 42-44, day, watch, hour. As to verse 44, the authorities for "day" in verse 42 agree with the rest in reading "hour." (Lect. on Matt., p.500, and Bible Treasury 4:308)
