Need help with SQL

I need to write a sql to fetch the data which has been created between yesterday 5pm and today 11 am .I am using the following criteria to achieve that and i am getting an error message saying not a valid month.

We are on oracle database.

     AND A.DTTM_STAMP_SEC >= TO_DATE(SYSDATE -1|| '17','MM/DD/YYYY HH24')
     AND A.DTTM_STAMP_SEC < TO_DATE(SYSDATE || '16','MM/DD/YYYY HH24')

Thanks

OR
AND A.DTTM_STAMP_SEC >= TO_DATE(TO_CHAR(SYSDATE -1,MM/DD/YYYY ') || '17','MM/DD/YYYY HH24')
AND A.DTTM_STAMP_SEC < TO_DATE(TO_CHAR(SYSDATE,MM/DD/YYYY ')|| '16','MM/DD/YYYY HH24')

WHERE THE TO_CHAR WITH MM/DD/YYYY FORMAT RETURNS THE DAY (FORMATTED) AT 00:00:00

In your 2nd comment the leading apostrophs for datetime format strings are missing:

AND A.DTTM_STAMP_SEC >= TO_DATE(TO_CHAR(SYSDATE -1,'MM/DD/YYYY ') || '17','MM/DD/YYYY HH24')
 AND A.DTTM_STAMP_SEC < TO_DATE(TO_CHAR(SYSDATE,'MM/DD/YYYY ')|| '16','MM/DD/YYYY HH24')

I have made some modification :)
select trunc(SYSDATE) - (7/24) A,TO_DATE(TO_CHAR(SYSDATE -1,'MM/DD/YYYY ') || '17','MM/DD/YYYY HH24') B,
trunc(SYSDATE) + (11/24) C,TO_DATE(TO_CHAR(SYSDATE,'MM/DD/YYYY ')|| '11','MM/DD/YYYY HH24') D
