candle

Hebrew: ner, Job 18:6; 29:3; Psalms 18:28; Proverbs 24:20, in all which places the Revised King James Version and margin of King James 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).
