Quick Reference

Although not mentioned in the OT, cocks were common in Palestine by the 1st cent. ce and were appreciated for waking up sleepers in the early morning. The third watch of the night, midnight to 3 a.m., was called cockcrow (Mark 13: 35). The cock was a symbol of alertness, and as such often stands today on church steeples.
