Bible: Isaiah 14:12-20
14:12 Look how you have fallen from the sky,
O shining one, son of the dawn! 1
You have been cut down to the ground,
14:13 You said to yourself, 4
“I will climb up to the sky.
Above the stars of El 5
I will set up my throne.
I will rule on the mountain of assembly
on the remote slopes of Zaphon. 6
14:14 I will climb up to the tops 7 of the clouds;
I will make myself like the Most High!” 8
14:15 But you were brought down 9 to Sheol,
to the remote slopes of the pit. 10
14:16 Those who see you stare at you,
they look at you carefully, thinking: 11
“Is this the man who shook the earth,
the one who made kingdoms tremble?
14:17 Is this the one who made the world like a desert,
who ruined its 12 cities,
and refused to free his prisoners so they could return home?”’ 1314:18 14
As for all the kings of the nations,
each in his own tomb. 17
14:19 But you have been thrown out of your grave
like a shoot that is thrown away. 18
You lie among 19 the slain,
among those who have been slashed by the sword,
as if you were a mangled corpse. 22
14:20 You will not be buried with them, 23
because you destroyed your land
and killed your people.
The offspring of the wicked
will never be mentioned again.
