Vine's Expository Dictionary of NT Words [1]

A — 1: Αὐγάζω (Strong'S #826 — Verb — augazo — ow-gad'-zo )

"to shine," is used metaphorically of the light of dawn, in  2—Corinthians 4:4 (some texts have kataugazo). Cp. auge, "brightness or break of day,"   Acts 20:11 . The word formerly meant "to see clearly," and it is possible that this meaning was continued in general usage.

A — 2: Διαυγάζω (Strong'S #1306 — Verb — diaugazo — dee-ow-gad'-zo )

signifies "to shine through" (dia, "through," auge, "brightness"); it describes the breaking of daylight upon the darkness of night, metaphorically, in  2—Peter 1:19 , of the shining of spiritual light into the heart. A probable reference is to the Day to be ushered in at the Second Coming of Christ: "until the Day gleam through the present darkness, and the Light-bringer dawn in your hearts."

 Revelation 21:21

A — 3: Ἐπιφώσκω (Strong'S #2020 — Verb — epiphosko — ep-ee-foce'-ko )

"to grow light" (epi, "upon," phos, "light"), in the sense of shining upon, is used in  Matthew 28:1; in  Luke 23:54 , "drew on" (of the Sabbath-day); RV, marg., "began to dawn." See Draw.

B — 1: Ὄρθρος (Strong'S #3722 — Noun Masculine — orthros — or'-thros )

"daybreak," denotes "at early dawn,"  Luke 24:1 (RV), "early in the morning" (AV);   John 8:2 (AV and RV); in   Acts 5:21 , RV, "about daybreak," for AV, "early in the morning."

 Luke 24:22 Revelation 22:16 Luke 21:38
