Light-bringer, the Latin name of the morning-star, or "son of the morning." In the figurative language of Scripture, a brilliant star denoted an illustrious prince, Numbers 24:17 . Christ was given to men as the "bright and morning Star," Revelation 2:28; 22:16 . The word Lucifer is used once only in the English Bible, and then of the king of Babylon, Isaiah 14:12 . It is now commonly, though inappropriately, given to the prince of darkness.
