Bible: Isaiah 14:9-11

14:9 Sheol 1  below is stirred up about you,

ready to meet you when you arrive.

It rouses 2  the spirits of the dead for you,

all the former leaders of the earth; 3 

it makes all the former kings of the nations

rise from their thrones. 4 

14:10 All of them respond to you, saying:

‘You too have become weak like us!

You have become just like us!

14:11 Your splendor 5  has been brought down to Sheol,

as well as the sound of your stringed instruments. 6 

You lie on a bed of maggots,

with a blanket of worms over you. 7
