Et non egent lúmine lucérnæ neque lúmine solis

Et non egent lúmine lucérnæ neque lúmine solis. And they will not need the light of the lamp, nor of the sun.

non egent = they will not need. From egeo, egere, to lack, to want, to need. This is future tense. The verb egere takes an ablative or a genitive, and so what they need is here found in the ablative case: lumine lucernae, the light of the lamp, and lumine solis, the light of the sun.
