_“Let there be light” is an English translation of the Hebrew ? ?? (yehiy ‘or). Other translations of the same phrase include the Latin phrase fiat lux, and the Greek phrase ???? ? (or gen?th?t? ph?s). The phrase is often used for its metaphorical meaning of dispelling ignorance.*
The phrase comes from the third verse of the book of Genesis in the King James Bible:
*1:1 – In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.
1:2 – And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters.
1:3 – And God said, Let there be light: and there was light.
1:4 – And God saw the light, that it was good: and God divided the light from the darkness._
