Candle
        Heb. ner, Job 18:6; 29:3; Ps. 18:28; Prov. 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 (Prov. 20:27), of a
        Christian example (Matt. 5:14, 15), and of prosperity (Job
        21:17; Prov. 13:9).
