Candle

Job 29:3; Proverbs 24:20; Proverbs 31:18; Zephaniah 1:12; Luke 8:16; Luke 11:33,36; Revelation 22:5
Used in the Old Testament for any light either real or symbolical. Job said of God, “when his candle shined upon my head”(Job 29:33When his candle shined upon my head, and when by his light I walked through darkness; (Job 29:3)); “the candle of the wicked shall be put out” (Prov. 24:2020For there shall be no reward to the evil man; the candle of the wicked shall be put out. (Proverbs 24:20)); whereas respecting “the wise woman” it is said “her candle goeth not out by night” (Prov. 31:1818She perceiveth that her merchandise is good: her candle goeth not out by night. (Proverbs 31:18)). God will search Jerusalem with candles (Zeph. 1:1212And it shall come to pass at that time, that I will search Jerusalem with candles, and punish the men that are settled on their lees: that say in their heart, The Lord will not do good, neither will he do evil. (Zephaniah 1:12)). In the New Testament the word signifies a lamp, and in some passages is typical of the testimony of God, which should be manifested in those receiving it, and should not be hidden (Luke 8:1616No man, when he hath lighted a candle, covereth it with a vessel, or putteth it under a bed; but setteth it on a candlestick, that they which enter in may see the light. (Luke 8:16); Luke 11:33, 3633No man, when he hath lighted a candle, putteth it in a secret place, neither under a bushel, but on a candlestick, that they which come in may see the light. (Luke 11:33)
36If thy whole body therefore be full of light, having no part dark, the whole shall be full of light, as when the bright shining of a candle doth give thee light. (Luke 11:36)
). In the holy Jerusalem there will be no need of the candle of earthly light, for the Lord God shall shine upon them (Rev. 22:55And there shall be no night there; and they need no candle, neither light of the sun; for the Lord God giveth them light: and they shall reign for ever and ever. (Revelation 22:5)). The modern “candle” was not known in scripture times.
