Lucifer ( /ˈluːsɪfər/ or /ljuːsɪfər/) is the King James Version rendering of the Hebrew word הֵילֵל in Isaiah 14:12. This word, transliterated hêlēl or heylel, occurs only once in the Hebrew Bible and according to Strong's Concordance means "shining one, morning star, Lucifer". The word Lucifer is taken from the Latin Vulgate, which translates הֵילֵל as lucifer, meaning "the morning star, the planet Venus" (or, as an adjective, "light-bringing"), The Septuagint renders הֵילֵל in Greek as ἑωσφόρος (heōsphoros) meaning "morning star". Kaufmann Kohler says that the Greek Septuagint translation is "Phosphoros".
