    on the last day

    Hi there,
    I have read a verse from the bible:
    'I will raise him up at the last day.'

    Any difference if I use 'on the last day'?

    The bible is written in very old English. You have to read it carefully to get what the book really means. I would say "on the last day" is better as you point out. But I am afraid my knowledge of the bible does not allow me to comment on the usage of that phrase.

    "at the last day"
    In biblical terminology, "last day" generally refers to the time surrounding Christ's second coming or beyond. Source
    At (this time =>) the last day.
