Vocabulary Contest — Hint

Here is the vocabulary contest sentence::

The darkness said nothing when the light spoke; and the light shown in that darkness and the darkness was not.

Here’s the hint: the incorrect word is a homophone–that is, it sounds like another word that is spelled differently and has a different meaning. For example, to, too, and two are homophones.
