"against the day"

Posted by Jim Krapf on November 22, 2006

Anyone have knowledge of the origin of the phrase, "against the day" which of course makes sensein context but seems an odd usage nontheless. This is the title of the new Thomas Pynchon novel and I have seen it used in other novels and am curious because it appears to have a life of its own.
