Lucifer

(lyoo' cih fuhr) The Latin translation (followed by the KJV) of the Hebrew word for “day star” in Isaiah 14:12 , where the word is used as a title for the king of Babylon, who had exalted himself as a god. The prophet taunted the king by calling him “son of the dawn” (NIV), a play on a Hebrew term which could refer to a pagan god but normally indicated the light that appeared briefly before dawn. A later tradition associated the word with evil, although the Bible does not use it as such.
