Did Wycliffe's give definition for Lucifer?

    The old 1380's Wycliffe's Bible made from the Latin may have been the first English Bible to introduce the rendering "lucifer" from the Latin Vulgate into the English Bible.

    An 1395 edition of Wycliffe's Bible seems to give its own definition for "Lucifer" at Job 38:32

    Job 38:32
    Whether thou bringist forth Lucifer, that is, day star, in his time, and makist even star to rise on the sons of earth?

    It is interesting that the definition for "Lucifer" at Job 38:32 in the 1395 Wycliffe's Bible is the same as the marginal note at Isaiah 14:12 in the 1611 KJV.
