In Latin, the word “Lucifer”, meaning “Light-Bringer” (from lux, lucis, “light”, and ferre, “to bear, bring”), is a name for the “Morning Star” (the planet Venus in its dawn appearances). The Latin Vulgate version of the Bible used this word twice to refer to the Morning Star: once in 2 Peter 1:19 to translate the Greek word “Φωσφόρος” (Phosphoros), which has exactly the same literal meaning of “Light-Bringer” that “Lucifer” has in Latin; and once in Isaiah 14:12 to translate “הילל” (Hêlēl), which also means “Morning Star”.
