Hebrews ner, Job 18:6; 29:3; Psalm 18:28; Proverbs 24:20, in all which places the Revised Version and margin of Authorized Version have "lamp," by which the word is elsewhere frequently rendered. The Hebrew word denotes properly any kind of candle or lamp or torch. It is used as a figure of conscience (Proverbs 20:27), of a Christian example (Matthew 5:14, 15), and of prosperity (Job 21:17; Proverbs 13:9).
