New International Version
12 How you have fallen(A) from heaven,
morning star,(B) son of the dawn!
You have been cast down to the earth,
you who once laid low the nations!(C)
13 You said in your heart,
“I will ascend(D) to the heavens;
I will raise my throne(E)
above the stars of God;
I will sit enthroned on the mount of assembly,(F)
on the utmost heights(G) of Mount Zaphon.[a]
14 I will ascend above the tops of the clouds;(H)
I will make myself like the Most High.”(I)
15 But you are brought down(J) to the realm of the dead,(K)
to the depths(L) of the pit.(M)
- Isaiah 14:13 Or of the north; Zaphon was the most sacred mountain of the Canaanites.
