Hints for Lucifer in the form of restating the question:
Who was Lucifer, what position did he hold, what was his nickname, and in what part of the Bible does it name him?
As to the quotes just put forward,
"Happy shall he be, that taketh and dasheth thy little ones against the stones" comes from Psalms 137:9, from a song of the Jews lamenting being
stolen away from their homeland and taken into slavery by the Babylonians. It certainly does end on a dark note, doesn't it!
The other one, "Now therefore kill every male among the little ones, and kill every woman that hath known man by lying with him" comes from Numbers
31:17 and is God's command to the Israelis to take Canaan after running from Egypt and through the desert. It's interesting to note that they did
not obey, and that disobediance eventually lead to the situation which caused Psalm 137 to be written.
