The Fall of Lucifer

12 “How(A) you are fallen from heaven,
O [a]Lucifer, son of the morning!
How you are cut down to the ground,
You who weakened the nations!
13 For you have said in your heart:
(B)‘I will ascend into heaven,
(C)I will exalt my throne above the stars of God;
I will also sit on the (D)mount of the congregation
(E)On the farthest sides of the north;
14 I will ascend above the heights of the clouds,
(F)I will be like the Most High.’
15 Yet you (G)shall be brought down to Sheol,
To the [b]lowest depths of the Pit.

16 “Those who see you will gaze at you,
And consider you, saying:
Is this the man who made the earth tremble,
Who shook kingdoms,
17 Who made the world as a wilderness
And destroyed its cities,
Who [c]did not open the house of his prisoners?’
