The word translated in the KJV as 'Lucifer' and in the NIV as 'morning star' from Isaiah 14:12 is heylel; which is a word meaning Lucifer the morning star. In Revelation 22:16 the translation of morning star comes from the words orthrinos aster which basically means 'morning' star'. They're meant to denote two opposing ideas while keeping the denotion of the comon meaning of "the brightest in their field" figuretively speaking and each to within their individual context. Based on the previous sources to the english translations I'd say with regards to the clarity of getting across what the original texts in this particular matter were saying; that the KJV is much better as far as clarity-acuracy is concerned.
