12 “How you have (A)fallen from heaven,
O [a](B)star of the morning, son of the dawn!
You have been cut down to the earth,
You who have weakened the nations!
13 “But you said in your heart,
‘I will (C)ascend to heaven;
I will (D)raise my throne above the stars of God,
And I will sit on the mount of assembly
In the recesses of the north.
14 ‘I will ascend above the heights of the clouds;
(E)I will make myself like the Most High.’
15 “Nevertheless you (F)will be thrust down to Sheol,
To the recesses of the pit.

  1. Isaiah 14:12 Heb Helel; i.e. shining one

12 How hast thou fallen from the heavens, O shining one, son of the dawn! Thou hast been cut down to earth, O weakener of nations.

13 And thou saidst in thy heart: the heavens I go up, Above stars of God I raise my throne, And I sit in the mount of meeting in the sides of the north.

15 Only -- unto Sheol thou art brought down, Unto the sides of the pit.
