'Put off the evil hour' nghĩa là trì hoãn điều gì khó chịu/khó ưa càng xa càng tốt.

Ví dụ
I will put off the evil hour when I start writing for as long as I possibly can.

I decided it was not becoming for a girl to ride a boy’s bicycle, and stuck out for one of my own, knowing full well that the state of the family’s finances would put off the evil hour indefinitely.

A government push for increased coal production would not only ignore all market signals, but also only put off the evil hour for struggling coal miners’ families. Instead, we should be helping them to acquire new skills that will make them successful in the modern economy.

Since it is generally expected that the government will lose the meaningful vote, Mrs May could put off holding it by a number of procedural ploys (mánh khóe, thủ đoạn; cuộc trác táng/truy hoan, trò nhậu). But running away would only put off the evil hour. If the UK is to leave on time with a deal, the vote will have to happen before 21 January next year.
