He replied, “I saw Satan fall like lightning ( “Baraq”) from heaven. Luke 10:18

Yeshua (JESUS) spoke Aramaic / Hebrew and he would not have said these words in Greek as the New Testament thus don’t turn to the Greek words for any information here.

What are the words lightening and Heaven or Heights in Hebrew?

Baraq means: lightning
Original Word: בָּרָק
Part of Speech: Noun Masculine
Transliteration: baraq
Phonetic Spelling: (baw-rawk’)
Short Definition: lightning
from baraq
NASB Translation
flash like lightning (1), flashing (1), gleaming (2), glittering point (1), lightning (9), lightning flashes (3), lightnings (4)

Did Lucifer say he would ascend into the heights? Yes he did,

Isa 14:12 How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! how art thou cut down to the ground, which didst weaken the nations!
Isa 14:13 For thou hast said in thine heart, I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God: I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation, in the sides of the north:
Isa 14:14 I will ascend above the heights of the clouds (heavens); I will be like the most High.


From an unused root (meaning to be high); an elevation: – height, high place, wave.

A word in Hebrew used to join concepts together as a conjuction would is Waw which is often written as a “U” or “O”. So, to join Lighting and the heights of Heaven, one would use a “U” or and “O”.

So, in the poetic style of Isaiah we would have Lightning and heights of Heaven at Baraq “O” Bamah or Baraq “U” Bamah. From this we would see Yeshua saying,

”I beheld Satan fall as Baraq “O” Bamah.
