1 Strong's Number: g220 Greek: alektor

Cock, Cock-Crowing:

"a cock," perhaps connected with a Hebrew phrase for the oncoming of the light, is found in the passages concerning Peter's denial of the Lord, Mat 26:34, 74, 75; Mar 14:30, 68, 72; Luk 22:34, 60, 61; Jhn 13:38; 18:27.

2 Strong's Number: g219 Greek: alektorophonia

Cock, Cock-Crowing:

denotes "cock-crowing" (alektor, and phone, "a sound"), Mar 13:35. There were two "cock-crowings," one after midnight, the other before dawn. In these watches the Jews followed the Roman method of dividing the night. The first "cock-crowing" was at the third watch of the night. That is the one mentioned in Mar 13:35. Mark mentions both; see Mar 14:30. The latter, the second, is that referred to in the other Gospels and is mentioned especially as "the cock-crowing."
