Time and fate deities
Time and fate deities are personifications of time, often in the sense of human lifetime and human fate, in polytheistic religions. In monotheism, Time can still be personified, as in Father Time in European folklore, or Zurvan in Persian (Zoroastrian) tradition. In the book of Ecclesiastes in the Hebrew Bible, the terms עדן `iddan "time" vs. זמן zĕman "season" express a contrast similar to that of Greek Chronos vs. Kairos.
