Lucifer ”light giver” Erroneously equated with the fallen angel (Satan) due to a misreading of Isaiah 14:12; ”How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning,” an apostrophe which applied to Nebuchadnezzar, king of Babylon. It should be pointed out that the authors of the books of the Old Testament knew nothing of fallen or evil angels, and do not mention them, although, at times, as in Job 4:18, the Lord ”put no trust” in his angels and ”charged them with folly”, which would indicate that angels were not all that they should be.
