So when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was a delight to the eyes, and that the tree was to be desired to make one wise, she took of its fruit and ate, and she also gave some to her husband who was with her. (Gen 3:6)

So Moses stretched out his hand toward heaven, and there was pitch darkness in all the land of Egypt three days. (Exod 10:22)

The people who walked in darkness have seen a great light. (Isa 9:2)

'I am the light of the world.' (John 8:12)

'You are the light of the world.' (Matt 5:14)

'The righteous will shine like the sun in the kingdom of their Father.' (Matt 13:43)

God, who said, 'Let light shine out of darkness,' has shone in our hearts to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ.' (2 Cor 4:6)

And the city has no need of sun or moon to shine on it, for the glory of God gives it light, and its lamp is the Lamb. (Rev 21:23; cf. 22:3)

Your forget the best:

The light of the righteous is like the light of dawn, shining ever brighter until the full light of day. Prov. 4:18.

And Daniel 12:3

But the wise will shine with the brightness of the heavenly expanse, and those bringing many to righteousness, like the stars, forever and ever.
