I'm looking for more, but here is what I have so far...

Genesis 2:17, "But as for the tree of the knowledge of good and bad you must not eat from it, for in the day you eat from it you will poritiviely die."

Adam lived for over 900 years, so obviously he didn't die in the 24 hour day he ate from the tree. A day must mean something more than 24 hours, at least in Genesis.

Genesis 2:4, "This is a history of the heavens and the earth in the time of their being created, in the day that Jehovah God made earth and heaven."

This verse puts the history of the earth into one day.

Genesis 5:1, "This is the book of the generations of Adam in the day that God created Adam."

Notice how it says generations of Adam IN THE DAY that God created Adam.

2 Peter 3:8, "However, let this one fact not be escaping YOUR notice, beloved ones, that one day is with Jehovah as a thousand years and a thousand years as one day."

Also realize the Hebrew word translated "day" has a variety of meanings, including "a long time; the time covering an extraordinary event." The term used allows for the thought that each "day" could have been thousands of years in length.
