12 “How (A)you are fallen from heaven,
    O Day Star, (B)son of Dawn!
How you are cut down to the ground,
    you who laid the nations low!
13 You said in your heart,
    (C)‘I will ascend to heaven;
above the stars of God
    (D)I will set my throne on high;
I will sit on the mount of assembly
    in the far reaches of the north;[a]
14 I will ascend above the heights of the clouds;
    I will make myself like the Most High.’
15 (E)But you are brought down to Sheol,
    to the far reaches of the pit.
16 Those who see you will stare at you
    and ponder over you:
‘Is this (F)the man who made the earth tremble,
    who shook kingdoms,
17 who made the world like a desert
    and overthrew its cities,
    (G)who did not let his prisoners go home?’
